This is my first entry and my first post... Any feedback or comments would be apreciated..

Chataeu Von Ulfenstein

Home to the infamous Count Von Ulfenstein, a member of the cities aristocratic upper class. Unknown to his friends and associates the count conducts hideous and cruel experiments and the cities less fortunate. These tortured souls are then set loose on the city...




I used this as an adventure idea inside a city.

First, I love the paper map effect you did to the map, gives it a real feel of a map. On the map itself, it hard to see any detail, could you post some closeups for us to see. I also bet Chataeu Von Ulfenstien has a great story behind it that you would love to tell. Very nice work and cant wait to see details

Fantastic first post VJ! Welcome to the forum! I second the request for some close up views. This is a great map using superb presentation.

You might want to do a little work on your copywriting. There are a few syntax and spelling errors and repetitions. Without changing too much I can offer:

Home to the infamous Count Von Ulfenstein, a member of the city's aristocratic upper class. Unbeknownst to his friends and associates the Count performs hideous and cruel experiments on assorted unfortunates. These tortured souls are then set loose on the local populace...

[Edit: Corrected my own typo. Stupid English]

Sorry about the syntax errors, I was in a rush to get it posted...

Here are some of the close ups as requested.
Lab Level One.


Lab Upper Level.


Main house study.


Ill go bak and fix the spelling mistakes from the first post aswell

If you would like a close up of any other area let me know.

Woo hoo! Welcome to the boards! Remarkable first entry! Personally I'd love to see a close-up of the gate area and gardens.

The crest, text and parchment really make this a polished entry. Did you do that in Dundjinni or is that post-editing?

The crest and parchment background are both post-editing effects. If you would like the crest and the parchment. I will post them along with the textures that I used for the wooden floors after the competition is over.

Ah! Those were done in postwork. Unless DJ suddenly had the ability to import gif and jpg files?
