So -- what STUFF is in ROTA? 5 Years, 7 Months ago  
OK, I've gotten a good sense of WHO we'd find in ROTA, and I've painted a bunch of figures in response. Now the question I have is -- what STUFF would we find?

One of the things that kept me lukewarm on DoE for awhile was the fact that every room seemed to be identical, because it wasn't as "basic" as the dungeon stuff. In other words, with the dungeon setting you could use the right accessories to make bedrooms, torture chambers, libraries, courtyards, armories, kitchens, and so on. But with DoE, most "furniture" would look out of place -- as would the suggestion that players had moved from one "room" to another. The planar nature of the environment was part of this, and the Room Set helped address the situation, in my mind, by giving us cool starfields and other suggestions of how "rooms" could be differentiated.

So -- what kind of "rooms" would be in the ROTA? Courtyards seem obvious. Libraries, maybe? Temple stuff, definitely. Am I going to have to track down a bunch of Grendel accessories and paint them in sandstone instead of grey?

I'm not necessarily asking for people to come up with "wish lists" for ROTA 3, though those would be welcome. I'm talking about any ideas about what things should fill these rooms -- and if you want to identify existing products or wish-list stuff, that's fine.

A library of scrolls.

A room with several high-backed chairs arranged facing each other.

A throne. Might be a seat of authority, might be a seat of power (clairvoyance, telepresence, whatever).

Sarcophagi. Might be graves, might be preservation chambers, might be healing devices.

A banquet hall. Might be long tables, might be lots of low platforms with pillows.

Plants. Potted plants. Alive or dead, depending on whether your RotA is comtemporary or ruins. This is/was a place of beauty, and a place full of living people and things.

Lots of temple furniture.

An abandoned Tactical Military/Arcane "war-college" room
A massive sized Orrery would be way awesome in the RotA!
Floating astrolabes in a library of crystal shards that contain secrets to who dwelt in this place.
Each room is equipped with a torquetum that can allow teleportation to common areas through out the complex. Maybe a few of these torquetum are old and randomly send you into the wrong areas.
A dual purposed entertainment/banquet hall.


I envision high magic in ordinary items, in the RotA, quills writing down stuff on scrolls by themselves, brooms sweeping floors and hallways, otherworldly lanterns or chandeliers lighting up when a person comes into an area.

This set would also has some cool Sci-fi applications. Like Stargate Atlantis. The RotA definitely has that Atlantean feel about it.
