Lake-Town by JonHodgson Lake-Town by JonHodgson
2010 Jon Hodgson

Lake-town for The One Ring rpg from Sophisticated Games and Cubicle 7.

"Since the great days of old, when a powerful realm of Northmen stretched far from the Lonely Mountain, there has been a city upon the Long Lake. Grown out of a small community born along its western shore, the village of Esgaroth became a trading port when families of merchants decided to move there from Dale. They built warehouses, and great residences to live in and closely follow the coming and going of their goods. For many years thereafter the boats of the Lake-men were seen going up and down the river, their holds filled with gold and their decks crowded with warriors in armour,
ready to bring war to distant lands."

Are those Smaug's ribs in the background? That's awesome. I bet that fouled up the lake something awful, though. Blech!

Awesome piece of work. Good perspective, very believable scene. Nice birdies. They add a touch of character. The ribs in the background reminded me of the whale bones in Whitby, but apparently those are jawbones.

I love the gable extensions on some of the roof. Well, and all the other stuff, obviously.

The first drawing of Lake-Town that I think properly captures the size of the town. All others make it too small. Now all I need as a GM is for you to draw a map of it ;) Love it and all your work on this game.

Lake Town? I came to see something from The Hobbit by Tolkien. Too bad:) But not the scene!

Ok I'm confused. It is from Tolkien, for a new Tolkien game. Maybe I misunderstand?

Then I got it misunderstood. Gooood, I only saw that city once (from Howe? I think... showing Bard and the black arow... Smaug...)

Is that a Rib-cage in the water off to the right? Not Smaug is it?

Burn Lake-Town! Burn in my vengeful fire!! ; )
Very nice town, Jon! Simple (not over-cool), and believable, yet varied enough to be interested. Looks easy, but I see a lot of work in there, and a lot of interesting details. Very well balanced.
(and for once, the pillars look like they can support the place)
