After a few days in Chicago and a few more occupied with last-minute investigation assignment (which made me miss my initial flight and cost me a day of leave), it is time to return to some D&D.
As our current campaign is focused on urban adventures, I’ve been focused on minis and terrain that hit our most common encounter area: marketplaces, taverns, and brothels.
I ordered me up some Tavern Accessories from JR Games and the Pathfinder Pawns: NPC Codex from Paizo with the aim of setting up some solid urban encounters (when combined with the many many dungeon tiles I already have in the arsenal.) I’ll get to the minis in a later post, but the furniture is our current focus.
Since pickings were slim in terms of prefab scenery accessories, I tried to make a couple myself to get my feet wet. I wanted some stairs and a table, so I started cutting up popsicle sticks.
Once everything was assembled, I painted the exposed styrofoam black to mute it and stained the wood with a 1:5 brown/black paint to water mix. Feeling ambitious, I jumped into painting the Tavern Accessories with mostly dry-brushing.
For the water in the well-piece, I wanted to try something new. I sliced out a section of clear blue plastic from a travel pack of Q-Tips and set it in the recess.
Where can I find some good urban “terrain” to spice up interior exterior encounters?
