View Full Version : The Free Races Consortium Crafting Area; WIP (Img): Updated with Kitchen/Bar

03-30-2011, 11:21 AM
<p>My fellow guild leaders and myself just purchased our first ever guild hall (T1) and I've been plugging away at making a suitable area for a RP enviroment along with functional amenities.</p><p>Below is the beginnings of our crafting hall which is starting to shape up quite nicely. Please let me know what you think. I'm a first time poster in this forum, but I have had my work on EQ2decorators (see Archilleo's household <img src="/eq2/images/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" /> ). So I'm getting there! <img src="/eq2/images/smilies/283a16da79f3aa23fe1025c96295f04f.gif" border="0" /></p><p>All of this is a WIP so it will change over time, but I wanted to give a glimpse at the work that is going on in there.</p><p>Hope you enjoy!</p><p>First you have the vendors and their helpful harvest box at the bottom of the stairs in the basement of the hall. The doors you see are an entrance to the tailoring (on the left) and alchemy (right door) along with stairs to go upstairs to the soon to be sage/library area. (WIP)<img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v723/Anhalion/Everquest%20Housing/EQ2_000136.jpg" width="800" height="601" /></p><p>As you enter the tailoring area you'll notice the rolls of fabric and table to work at, a tailors own area to work with everything they need!</p><p><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v723/Anhalion/Everquest%20Housing/EQ2_000138.jpg" width="800" height="601" /></p><p>Then you as you continue around the corner you notice the changing room and mirrored platform for measurement. Even some examples sitting on mannequins</p><p><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v723/Anhalion/Everquest%20Housing/EQ2_000139.jpg" width="800" height="601" /></p><p>Turning back around you see the door and the station yet again.</p><p><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v723/Anhalion/Everquest%20Housing/EQ2_000140.jpg" width="800" height="601" /></p><p>Next area as you exit the tailoring area is the next door area of the Alchemist's table. Its sparse and still waiting on some supplies but its structure seems very sound!</p><p> <img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v723/Anhalion/Everquest%20Housing/EQ2_000137.jpg" width="800" height="601" /></p><p> You head across the hallway now and see the other set of doors across from you. These lead to the Forge (left door) & Workbench (right door) Along with stairs that lead up to the Woodworking area and the Trade Skill Liason's Office.</p><p><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v723/Anhalion/Everquest%20Housing/EQ2_000129.jpg" width="800" height="601" /></p><p>Heading up the stairs first you see the two seperated rooms, the one to your right the soon to be woodworkers area and the door in front of you to the Tradeskill Liason's Office.</p><p><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v723/Anhalion/Everquest%20Housing/EQ2_000135.jpg" width="800" height="601" /></p><p>Heading back down you head into the workbench area and see the gemmed floor and tinkered enviroment for those who are more inclined that way. <img src="/eq2/images/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" /> It is still missing some additions (in the packing box at the moment) but its coming along.</p><p><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v723/Anhalion/Everquest%20Housing/EQ2_000133.jpg" width="800" height="601" /></p><p>And facing the door out.</p><p><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v723/Anhalion/Everquest%20Housing/EQ2_000134.jpg" width="800" height="601" /></p><p>Braving the forge you walk into the stone lined floors and functioning forges around you spew up fire and flame! Missing our second forge, but still looks good so far!</p><p><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v723/Anhalion/Everquest%20Housing/EQ2_000130.jpg" width="800" height="601" /></p><p>And as you go around the corner in the forge.</p><p><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v723/Anhalion/Everquest%20Housing/EQ2_000131.jpg" width="800" height="601" /></p><p>Hope you enjoyed the glimpse into our work in progress crafting area! I'll be sure to post the final product up once I am done plodding around the large hall with decorating tools in hand!</p>

<p>Very nice! I really like what you did with the bolts of fabric.</p>

<p>Thank you! I'll hopefully be posting up the kitchen/provisioning station that wasn't included (I was still figuring out its lay out).</p>

<p>Nicely themed areas that must be fun for your crafters. Well done<img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />  I especially love the double door access.</p><p>Kudos,</p><p>Cloudrat</p>

<p>After some hard work and sorting out the rest of the crafting area, the kitchen and its adjacent bar are in their end stages of being finished. Below is a glimpse at its development and build so far. (The minor details are coming along). I cannot take credit for most of the bar, my husband designed most of it, I only helped. <img src="/eq2/images/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" /></p><p>You cannot see the upper floor which is above the kitchen because it is not done being built, but once it is, it will become a cafe on top overlooking the bar and the soon to be stage!</p><p>Come and look in person, Crushbone, SFP Guild hall, The Free Races Consortium</p><p><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v723/Anhalion/Everquest%20Housing/EQ2_000039.jpg" width="799" height="413" /></p><p><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v723/Anhalion/Everquest%20Housing/EQ2_000041.jpg" width="799" height="413" /></p><p><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v723/Anhalion/Everquest%20Housing/EQ2_000040.jpg" width="799" height="413" /></p><p><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v723/Anhalion/Everquest%20Housing/EQ2_000042.jpg" width="799" height="413" /></p><p>And now onto the bar which is a beautiful addition! <img src="/eq2/images/smilies/283a16da79f3aa23fe1025c96295f04f.gif" border="0" /></p><p><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v723/Anhalion/Everquest%20Housing/EQ2_000046.jpg" width="799" height="413" /></p><p><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v723/Anhalion/Everquest%20Housing/EQ2_000048.jpg" width="799" height="413" /></p><p> <img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v723/Anhalion/Everquest%20Housing/EQ2_000049.jpg" width="799" height="413" /></p><p> <img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v723/Anhalion/Everquest%20Housing/EQ2_000047.jpg" width="799" height="413" /></p><p><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v723/Anhalion/Everquest%20Housing/EQ2_000045.jpg" width="799" height="413" /></p><p><img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v723/Anhalion/Everquest%20Housing/EQ2_000044.jpg" width="799" height="413" /></p><p>Thanks for taking a look! <img src="/eq2/images/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" /></p>

<p>Any of my crafters would love to craft at your place, it's terrific!</p>

<p>This hall is even more beautiful in person than it is in the screenshots!</p><p><3 Anha</p>

<p>Great use of newer items<img src="/eq2/images/smilies/e8a506dc4ad763aca51bec4ca7dc8560.gif" border="0" /> You have carried the theme well and incorporated the stained glass tiles nicely<img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />  Good work.</p><p>Kudos,</p><p>Cloudrat</p>

<p>Thanks everyone for the comments! <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> The hall is nearly done and there will be a grand opening soon. Though I am struggling with item count I will conquer! *shakey fist*</p><p>Thanks again for the encouragement, my guildmates seem to enjoy crafting there and the enviroment is primed for rp meetings and fun!</p>
