Thanks. I am really proud of the “books” I did. Though I put enough work into the coins that I will run that encounter regardless. If by chance it doesn’t get pulled before the end it will be played right before the finale.
Sure. I could not find good models for either one so I decided to build them myself.
The coins were fairly simple. I just bought a bag of small gold sequins and a bag of small silver ones as well. I mixed them together. Over a couple of weeks I applied some glue to a base and dipped it into the mix. I did this over and over again each day. So once the glue dried I added another “layer” to it. I only did glue once for the piles of coins (terrain).
The books were a little more work. I took three kinds of paper (white, black and an off white certificate paper with gold edges). I cut each into strips and then tore the strips into smaller pieces. Tearing helped create rough edges. I simple glued the different paper scraps onto bases to make terrain and the creatures. I glued some long sprue pieces standing up to bases for a foundation to create 2 book swarms and started with an old zombie model for the base of the elemental. I also took some white plastic card and cut in into strips. I wrapped some of the black paper on the plastic card and glued before I cut into smaller pieces to create “books”. Used a larger proportion of the gold edged paper for the elemental and put most of the “books” on the swarm and elemental bases.
Thats a quick summary. If you are interested in more details on any of the steps I would be happy to explain further.
Thanks for the info. Please let us know how the session goes. I was thinking about running Paraxus later this year, and would love to hear about your experience running it and any GM ‘nuggets’ you might pick up on the way.
