  4. What is the best way to build a pool table? I see the one created by EM's outside Luna south gate is made from dyed dark-green granite tables (which of course, we can't dye). Finding verite granite is becoming very tedious, and the color just seems off.

    Any other examples?

    A slight variation on the 'ornate elven chest' range - the addition of lava serpent crust between the chest and the pot.

    table.jpg Someone was asking me about the abbatoir tables, I realised the original table I made is still around but the variations have been lost. So here's a re-post.
    table.jpg
    The standard table - 2 small tables under a raised abbatoir (place 9 gozas in a 3 x 3 square and raise 8 x)

    donut.jpg
    The 'donut' table with the center dropped out.
    filled.jpg filled2.jpg
    Two ways to fill the hole

    Overlapped tables can house a large forge. Pentagram used only to show the difference, 2 abbatoirs would look better. Taking out the side allows a 'wrap around' table, possible suitable for anyone making a casino?

    Ice Box.jpg

    Just a simple "ice box" for the cooking room...
    Pretty basic stuff really, had not seen it done on my shard anywhere
    If its not a "new' idea, appologies...

    Also was used to hide the top of "Hearth of the Home Fire" that tends to poke through to thee floor above.

    I saw this and it sent my mind into overdrive!
    It occured to me that you could make this a solid multi tiered table by place 5 or 6 of them on the lowest Z axsis.
    Then change the axsis of each one indiviualy to make it solid

    I tinkered with it one night but was far too late and had one too many beers to get it just right.
    What I can tell you is this:
    1) My first mistake after place 5 seperate abbas and then dropping them to lowest Z axsis, was to try to raise each pc of each segment to the proper height!
    2) You would HAVE to work from the northern most pc then work southwest in each following pc, in order to not obstruct yer view of other pcs!
    3) I think where i went wrong was starting on lowest Z axsis, i suspect in order to get it to work you would have to have all the pcs at highest Z axsis.
    Then depending on how many abbas you placed, drop each pc down 1 less per tier (depnding on final height)
    4) My main goal was a table a Vender could stand in the middle of, did not get to test reachability of vender bag as i did not complete the table. It also occured to me the concept could be taken a step farther by going hight in tiers to make it into a "prison" and/or "cell" for a "prisoner...?

    I may in the future play with the idea more , but am busy with other things, anyone else wanna have a whack at it , lemme know how it goes?

    Also keep in mind if you wish to make this a full solid multi tiered table , you will have to place gozas for each table, stack them accordingly , then place the abba...
    omg i am confusing myself now !!!

    I KNOW this can be done , i may never use it , but dern it ima make it work sooner or later just cuz I CAN !!!

    Now that we are able to put things in the castle courtyards, we used goza mats to create this "deck" on the second floor of our castle Castle Deck.png

    So I am trying to figure this one out still. The parts to the rope that I am confident in are the plates, mortars and pestles, and [normal] bows. But the two parts I can't seem to re-create are the poles and the knobs. I was thinking lit torches and smoke bombs, but I don't think that's right. Any hints would be wonderful. Thanks!

    My sewing area. The 'sewing basket' is a crafted winnowing basket and so contains all my leather, cloth etc. I used bought balls of wool in the different types as they sit differently on the tile. One seat, the sewing machine stool, serves for sewing, spinning and weaving. The winnowing basket is made from the plants I grow for orange petals.

    Several people have added a banana tree to the banana horde from the new quest, not least Eaerendil's latest building. I offer my slight addition to mine:
    bananas.jpg
    The addition being the bunches of stealable bananas from town chests bananabunch.gif placed in the tree.

    My friend and I were lookin for something to do the other night and stumbled upon a [UWF] Guild Meeting on Atlantic. Shortly after, Merlin showed us his lovely castle. Wanted to share his awesome fireplace, and classy crafter area. :)

    Photobucket caused that unfortunately. They are trying to extort money out of people by blocking all their pictures unless they pay for an upgraded account, which in some cases would cost hundreds of dollars for people with a lot of pictures on their account.

    This is a GM Decorated house on Great Lakes from the Temple of Mordain? Mondain?

    I dont' think you can get it anywhere else.
