help!

Yikes - that is quite a fearsome encounter

Step one - block the hole - good lord - look at what keeps coming out of that hole - as if sharks weren't bad enough!

does anyone have hide from animals? can you cast underwater?

what are we even doing down here? - i see shipwrecks, but no gold or chests - lets just FLEE!

Great pics.

Normally a old fashion battle mat does not look very good in a DF setup but as a sandy bottom it rocks.

You and your kids did a great job. The last pic made me fear for the PCs even with a druid.

Underwater Shipyard and Cave

Post by Talistran » Sat Feb 03, 2018 1:07 am

My boys (11 and 7 years old) and I have been working on a bunch of different RPG accessories and miniatures lately, and after spending a BUNCH of hours making some ocean-life miniatures, they wanted to see what they would look like in use.

So, we set up a little diorama using DF Mountains and some ships. You'll see a couple of different angles as each boy got to devise a scene or two.

The boys set up the ocean bottom, with just a little help from me. I think the mountains worked REALLY well for this, and could look even better if we spent some time and used all the types of pieces instead of just a box of the big/mostly square mountain pieces :)

The intrepid adventures, walking on the bottom of the ocean with some water breathing cast on them by the druid.

Image

Some life stirs... a few large lobsters, two large octopi, and an eel.

Image

As a school of sharks rush the adventurers, most of the other wildlife scurry away.

Image

A sawbill sneakattack ;)
Image

After defeating the sharks, some hammerheads attack from behind...

Image

By now, the other boy wanted his turn, so started setting up the other side.

Approaching from the other side, the adventurers scare away a family of sea turtles...

Image

At which point they are met by a bunch of rays...

Image

Some dolphins came over to play...

Image

One of my boys said, "Man we're lucky. Everyone else only has two sharks to use." He isn't wrong.

Image

Of course, two is a nicer option than the sharks he threw at our adventurers...

Image

By now, both boys wanted to show what was in the cave, so they took turns...

Image

"There wouldn't just be ONE octopus, Dad."

Image

Or what about a salt water crocodile?!

Image

Or a large jellyfish!

Image

Finally, I asked the boys what would happen if the adventurers made it INTO the cave ok, but were confronted by ALL the sharks when they got out?!? :) This is what they did...

Image

Of course, the 7 year old thought that the good creatures would come help them... sailfish, narwal, and some dolphins to the rescue.

Image

Well, there you go :)
