Howdy. Here's my current map, a three leveled tower with a catapult on top. The dragonshards on the second floor are actually part of the eldritch machine that powers the catapult, thus making it magical artillery. Lighting effects are all post-dundjinni Photoshopping.

Some very good effects you've got going there. The lighting with the Dragonshards is terrific. The only suggestion I'd make is to rotate the crates and barrels more using the free rotation tool to get more randomness. Also, what is the red under the wall and portcullis on the first floor? Does it represent some magical barrier?

Huh, ya'know, I can't really remember. I made the first portion of the map about 10 minutes after I woke up today, and ended up doing the last bit hours later, and I completely forgot why I put that strip there.

The light and shadow effects are wunderbar!!! Care to share the png's of your shadows??? This is what I mean when I beg for maps to be "dipped in shadows".

ROCK ON LONEFOX!!!!!

p.s. Did you blur the background outside the castle?? Looks a little less distinct. Neat !!

I've tried the link in three different browsers, all I get is a 503 error -- service unavailable. Would someone mind uploading it to the forum using the forum's uploader thingy?

Thanks DW.

That's a sweet map! Kudos for great use of shading and light effects. They layout is also nice and playable.

Tip: rotating the crystals and the roof barrels can give a realistic air, by breaking up symmetric feelings.

Thanks for the tips about rotating stuff. I used the map on Sunday, and the battle was definetly uphill and tough for the players. It was a fun session, however.

I resized it and uploaded it to the forum. I honestly thought the site I used would have enough daily bandwidth, but apparently, I was dead wrong. Heh, won't make that mistake again.

Thanks for also uploading it, dragonwolf.
