Treasure Island.. the plot begins

I’ve started workin’ on my Treasure Island module again. I got a bit burned out while laboring over the island. The island looks great.. and is obviously important to the mod.. but I needed a break.

I read this comment about the island and it recharged me!

This area is amazing I found myself randomly running around the island for hours And it solves a problem i was having with long distance travel in my module, The scaling was a great idea Hope to see your module out soon.

 

So.. I have lots of work still to do.. but I have a lot accomplished too. I have the Admiral Benbow Inn done.. both outside and in… the nearby hamlet is done.. Bristol Harbor is done… mostly what I need now is to populate and get things runnin.

I want fans of the book to be able to try their hand at being Jim.. but I also want you to be able to re-write the story as you see fit to try and do so.. I don’t want to come of with a number of paths.. I want to come up with inhabitants that react according to what has transpired in the world..

Not the most simple idea.. so .. obviously my starting point is the book’s path. I have the intro cut-scene done.. hmm.. I guess I’m farther along than I thought..

Of course.. at the same time I’m working on an area for Neversummer 5.. and my wife and I are starting to create the Wizard of Oz.. I’ve finished the tornado and most of Dorothy’s farm…

I’ll put up some photos soon.. for now.. sleep.. I was up til 3:15 yesterday/today putting out the current episode of the Neverwinter Nights Podcast… I enjoyed it.. but I’m a bit tired now.. since it’s past midnight again!

Enjoy!

Contest Entered

Here’s a link to my NWN2 Contest entry.

It’s complete as far as the land is concerned.. I woulda liked to have hidden some fun little things.. but getting the area to look right was concern number one.

This blog site is in a shambles.. and things are scrolling off because I haven’t organized it yet.. so.. bear with me while I apply some order to Davesnot..

Evolving Treasure Island

still lookin’ west

Here’s an evolved picture from the same spot of my Treasure Island area… and I’ll put in another shot just to show some perspective on how the entire island can be explored.. the only back drop is the sky and the ocean.

wider perspective looking west at “ye Spyeglass Hill”

 I’m never gonna finish this enough to win any contests.. but I think the idea I’m using to make such a big area is sound enough. It’ll make or break the deal..

 Lookie.. the moon

Anyway.. no time to write.. it’s midnight.. I have to help give an SCA demonstration tomorrow morning.. meaning I have to armour up and get hit by a knight in front of a bunch of 7th graders.. oh the joy!

 I’m goin’ there!

Enjoy!
