<p>Rumor has it the tower holds many secrets....</p><p><img src="http://img149.imageshack.us/img149/3672/eq2000021.jpg" width="1024" height="768" /></p><p><img src="http://img7.imageshack.us/img7/8030/eq2000023e.jpg" width="1024" height="768" /></p><p><img src="http://img29.imageshack.us/img29/3289/eq2000024.jpg" width="1024" height="768" /></p><p>The tower is hidden in the city of Gorowyn among the guild halls...(Antonia Bayle server, Council of Veeshan come pay us a visit <img src="/eq2/images/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" /> It is all Arasai sized, so larger races may feel a bit...tall :p )</p>

<p>Here is a tour of the Tower teleports, starting with the entryway and crafting area</p><p><img src="http://img10.imageshack.us/img10/7479/eq2000016w.jpg" width="1024" height="768" /></p><p><img src="http://img406.imageshack.us/img406/5254/eq2000000.jpg" width="1024" height="768" /></p><p><img src="http://img245.imageshack.us/img245/3843/eq2000001.jpg" width="1024" height="768" /></p><p>The bedchamber</p><p><img src="http://img29.imageshack.us/img29/3269/eq2000002.jpg" width="1024" height="768" /></p><p><img src="http://img17.imageshack.us/img17/205/eq2000004f.jpg" width="1024" height="768" /></p><p>The tavern, with stage and plenty of food ready to eat</p><p><img src="http://img16.imageshack.us/img16/2166/eq2000005a.jpg" width="1024" height="768" /></p><p><img src="http://img17.imageshack.us/img17/4395/eq2000006p.jpg" width="1024" height="768" /></p><p>From there we go to the Magma Forge area...</p><p><img src="http://img248.imageshack.us/img248/6941/eq2000007.jpg" width="1024" height="768" /></p><p><img src="http://img248.imageshack.us/img248/551/eq2000008.jpg" width="1024" height="768" /></p><p>Now for a look at the study, where all our magical tomes are kept, and notes written:</p><p><img src="http://img16.imageshack.us/img16/1093/eq2000009.jpg" width="1024" height="768" /></p><p><img src="http://img143.imageshack.us/img143/8696/eq2000010.jpg" width="1024" height="768" /></p><p>In the heart of the tower, our power source...part of the Void.

<p>I liked the vault.. <img src="/smilies/8a80c6485cd926be453217d59a84a888.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p>

<p>This is a really creative concept!  I love the magma forge and the void.</p><p>I'm betting that to get the full effect a visit would be in order......now where did I leave that alt?</p>

<p>I went back to take a longer look, and to see how some of this was put together.. I really love how the floors were done in the crafting room and study. On my first trip through it didn't even occur to me that they had been built, they just seemed so natural. I really like how the void room was done, also.. that one took a bit of figuring out. (I think it was actually your ice room which helped me to figure out just how that effect was done.. very nice!)</p>

<p>I especially like the stage, although the whole thing is very well done.</p>

09-13-2009, 12:00 PM
<p>I LOVE the floors.  You put them together so well. I never would have thought about using those together like that.  Works get together.</p>

<p><span style="font-family: book antiqua,palatino; color: #ff00ff; font-size: medium;">Fantastic work!!!! Very creative! I especially love the floor design with the gold tiles and the druid portal! The entire design was SO creative and very well executed! Fabulous! Very well done! <img src="/eq2/images/smilies/e8a506dc4ad763aca51bec4ca7dc8560.gif" border="0" /> <img src="/eq2/images/smilies/e8a506dc4ad763aca51bec4ca7dc8560.gif" border="0" /></span></p>

<p>Thank you very much for the kind words <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p>

<p>Very cool place! I love those floors. <img src="/smilies/283a16da79f3aa23fe1025c96295f04f.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p>

<p>Loved it! You did a great job. My curiosity begs to ask though:</p><p>How did you make the void room so black?</p><p>How did you create the gold and stone tiled floor?</p><p>I would love to know.</p><p>AA</p>

<p>What a fantastic design...great use of different furniture items to make your floors, that is well done!</p>

<p>I made a character on AB to come check this out last night.  Simply amazing.  Aesthetically my favorite elements are the void room (Love the deep black/purple and gold runes!  Perfect effect in there) and the tiled floors.  I love how you brought those tables together to look just as natural as if they were actual floor tiles.</p><p>Thematically I love the vault, the prison trap, and the catacombs leading back up to the entryway.  Perfect use of player-written books to tell the story of the would-be thief, and I had a blast trying to find the jail's secret exit and navigating the maze.</p><p>Very creative indeed.  Keep at it!</p>

Unfortunately its not pure black unless your torch is off hehe its got a bit of purple too. The study floor is made from Short Adamantine tables and Tynnonium round tables. </p>

<p>Awesome! I would never have though tof that. I am definately going to have to "borrow" those ideas. <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p><p>Thanks so much!</p><p>AA</p>

<p>I'd love to visit, but not sure where this guild hall is.  You mentioned Gorowyn; is it there?  If so, how can a level 1 toon get to the guild hall from the place where new characters land in TD?</p>

<p>If you want to run from the starting location of Chrykori Island there is a griffon tower at 780,0,156 . Doable but can be a nasty run. The griffon flies to Gorowyn and then you just have to run a little way up a hill to enter the city. Guild halls are located near the main crafting area <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p>

<p>The floor panneling here is simply breathtaking. Nice use of the bed as a stage as well!</p>

09-16-2009, 09:28 PM
<p>I'm actually running around in your guild hall as I write this and it's simply amazing <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> I would recommend anyone to come and visit in person but if you are making an alt to visit make a small race <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> I'm running around as a gnome <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> and enjoying every minute of it!!</p><p>Your attention to detail and the amount of planning that has gone into this is simply outstanding and my hat is off to you with sincere admiration. Oh and yes I went to the vault and yes I did .. and yes it took me a little bit to work it out <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> i'm not going to say any more so not to spoil it for those going to visit .. /grins.</p><p>I love the void room, I never thought to use the black tables to make a dark floor /facepalm</p><p>Great work and a wonderful inspiration.</p><p>Mistal x</p>

<p>Wow thank you</p><p>I thought I'd post this screenshot  of a project I'm working on now <img src="/eq2/images/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" /></p><p>There are whispers of strange happenings in the Tower of Nil Space. Even among guild members there are secrets that were never meant to be discovered. For one....it all came crashing down.</p><p>I call this "Warlock's Ire"</p><p><img src="http://img132.imageshack.us/img132/5140/eq2000017.jpg" /></p>
