The torches are especially excellent. How about a tutorial?

Thanks thebigteacher. I'm planning to do a tutorial at some point, but it'll probably be more of an overview on some of the pieces I customized. I'm curious - did the Youtube videos work for you? I had problems getting them to play correctly.

Thanks,

Excellent! Loved the story line and the custom pieces!

And the plot twist was great!

Nice custom work and very interesting use of materials! My favorite bit of all is the rotating wall segment, being able to move it either from below or by mechanism is an excellent bit of theatrics. I do so love little bits of panache and pageantry like that.

My players rue the day I bought "Dragon Mountain". Ever since they give every creature a bit more respect. You never know when the GM will decide that this group is crafty...

WOW!

Love the double height wall with the stained glass.
Some great Original series 'Star Trek' feel going on with an adventurers twist.

But when I watched as the wall opened under electronic motor control !!!!!!!
Double wow.
Simply amazing.
Love how you mange to get small lights into small things. Great effects. Really top class. You should be working in special effects for movies. Imagine if you had a huge budget and it was your day job!!

Guys - Watch the YouTube movies, they are great!!

Thanks for the compliments everyone! Much appreciated.

LordDust, the wall moved via a motor mechanism I built under the raised platform. It's triggered by a remote control. I'll show it in an upcoming post.

Thanks

I'll be looking forward to it. If you have the time and inclination I would be eager for some details about the construction of that piece! This forum is such a great place to share this stuff. I have been playing with ideas for using some essential oils to produce some thematic scents to be released at appropriate times and also for use of a nebulizer and/or dry ice. I was thinking it might be interesting to maybe do something with some cheap fiber optics for some light effects... I have too many ideas and not enough time!

Thanks again for sharing though, a very inspiring setup indeed.

Mind = blown

Mixing the fantasy with the sci-fi sets is cool. The rotating wall and the bits with blinking lights and a computer screen? AMAZING.

Make something idiot-proof and someone will just turn around and make a better idiot.

Great job! May I also request building infos? The computer with blinking lights is top class! I'm also wondering how you made the flickering torches so small and realistic. Do they flicker?

Thank you for sharing.
