So now that I’ve had my Hirst Arts molds for a while and have had a chance to do some casts, I’ve been thinking about the next obvious question: what should I build with them?
After a bit of thought, I think I have the answer: The maps from module HS1: The Slaying Stone.
In order to figure out how many bricks I’ll need and how to arrange them, I’ve begun analyzing the maps. Here’s one from Encounter 4:
First I’ll break out the rooms, indicating what sorts of floors I’ll need:
That gives me:
One 2×5 (possible as one 2×2, one 2×3)
Then it’s on to the walls:
Which gives me:
And other miscellaneous things:
Two stairs, 2×4
One secret door, 1
One door, 1
One door, 2
One trap door, 1×1
Two sacks, 1×1
One pillar, 2×2
Secret tunnel floor: 5, 2, 1
That sounds like a lot of assembly work, and maybe it is. I won’t know for sure until I build it.
