I totally know what you mean, MC, I love just having time to lay around doing nothing.
@Napo: A cottage in Derfel style? Post it, man!
I will. But I still don't have a camera.
That should be rectified within the week.
I completed the layout. I'm dubbing it the Creature's Keep. The Cottage with water wheel is on the shoreline of a river, along with a pigpen. A rowboat with a peasant is drifting out with a fisherman on it with a bunch of caught trout. Another rowboat is one with an elven priestess on it with several treasure chests and other equipment to trade at the dock. The small dock has an Elven warrior on it, and the structure is the base of the tower. The tower is massive. I used all kinds of architectural techniques to make it interesting. The top of it has a surveyor instrument thingie, a huge mounted spyglass, an armory, and then the side of it juts out and forms a small prison, which houses the Monster Fighters Swamp Creature on a chain. The jail is boarded up and run down, like they're afraid to even go near the creature's cell, but the rest of the tower is really fancy, with gold parts everywhere and a custom Pirates Trade Flag draped on the wall.
