Found any good Mount Stalagos/CRM/Fanes images?
I like to give my players a lot of handouts, I think it increases the immersion, creates some added *WOW* effect, and can really help set the mood for a given location. Has anyone used, or seen, any images that would be good representations of Rastor and beyond to show my PCs - long shot of Mount Stalagos, Fanes, interior CRM images, etc.? I'll probably use what I can from the module itself but I'd love to supplement things. I was thinking a couple nice color images maybe from an old Dragon or something.

Thanks,

For the Stalagos, I'd recomend a photo of Crater Lake, Oregon. With a little Photoshop skills you could add in lightning towers, the spike, etc. to give it the right effects.

I seem to remember that Monte originally based it off of Crater Lake anyway . . .

Someone made an amazing bitmap of the crater and stalagos from the vantage of someone standing on the edge of the crater, as well as an animated GIF which rotated all the way around the crater. It included the towers and the bridges (albeit the towers look more carved out of the existing stone than separate structures like they look in the pg. 107 illo).

My players were amazed by it.

I don't remember where I saw it... Yahoo groups? If it isn't available anywhere let me know and I will upload it to Zans.

Downloads aren't set up yet. Hopefully in a week or so. For uploads, check this post here: pub58.ezboard.com/fokayyo...2593.topic .

And they should be working again...

Edit: Oh, and I do have the orginal Terragen files for that stalagos picture/movie. (Now there's a program to waste some time in!!!) I don't seem to have the gif animation local though.

Ok uploaded the files to Zans so watch for his announcement when downloads become available.

Yes, I can't see your email address in your profile, but if you leave your email address here or email me at cordo_crowfoot at hotmail dot com I'll send them over. I'll work on making my email address visible in my own profile as well.

The original Stalagos still image is available at:

www.geocities.com/vmmakko...toee/maps/

Select "Näkymä kraaterin reunalta" (Finnish for "A view form the cater edge")

I removed the animation to save storage space

Can't give you a direct URL, since Yahoo won't allow those...

I think I still have the original Terragen files somewhere, mail me (mak [at] iki [dot] fi) if you like to play with them - make a smoother anim for example.

[blush] Yep,

I played with Terragen (see www.planetside.co.uk/ ) a while back...

With what I've seen done with Terragen, that image is pretty mediocre, but I suppose it serves it purpose
