Castle Greyhawk: Doors and Lights

Welcome back Greyhawk lords and ladies! It's prime time to promote a new page in the third chapter of our ongoing Castle Greyhawk graphic novel. Check out page nine-teen and read some riveting writings by star scribe Scott Casper. On our site you can also check the archives and follow the entire Castle Greyhawk story from the very beginning.

Artist's Commentary: This page built off the previous one quite well as Tenser continues to poke around in the pit of charred fungi. There is some nice layers to the lighting and darkness going from one location to next. I particularly like the inset secret door perspective. The shading was subtle, effective and easy!

I also enjoy drawing the floating magic script the spellcasters use. Side thought: Tenser uses his dagger as a focus to cast spells. I don't think foci have been all that important in my home games. Magic items notwithstanding. I do think it makes sense though. When a magic user runs out of spells he has his weapon handy already!

One last item of note. Yrag has a bedroll. I like to imagine he has some more useful items tucked within that roll. If it never gets utilized no big deal, it's the small details that make Castle Greyhawk seem more real.
