DA:Origins Ortan Thaig (Empty)

This is the first board I’ve published, excluding a tileset that was a bawhair too large to be a slab. This board is an empty replica of Ortan Thaig from Dragon Age: Origins. I took a few minor creative liberties–namely: the lava river instead of water, adding a pair of guard towers at the lava bridge, textured cavern floors because the stock Talespire cavern floor is boring, and having illumination crystals on the walls to help with visibility. There are also green things, because I figure a damp/wet cavern is going to have some moulds, lichens, mosses, etc.

The board’s atmo/day cycle is set to dark but because it’s got boards as the cavern ceiling, you can set it to day and tweak the various settings to achieve perfect dark.

I left some of my building tools outside the start area–the two main walls that I used, a set of textured cavern floor tiles, and my tunnels. The Deep Roads at the south and the north are from my improved Modular Deep Roads Tileset. In the DA:O Ortan Thaig quest the north Road is not actually reachable by your party, so I didn’t add access ladders the way that I did in the south Road slice. Start point is the south tunnel, marked by three stock dwarf miniatures. No hidden areas, no environment/atmosphere triggers.

Mea culpa: I miscalculated the floor levels certainly not because I did this on two bottles of wine–you’ll know the area when you see it, it’s in the Thaig main cavern near the bridges.

I did copy&paste TonyTheCapeGuy’s 30-degree bridge so credit to them for that. I also have a board with the completed interior, this one is for people that may want to design their own interior or use it for something entirely different.
