Your wish is my command great magi (oh wait...I think I might have been spending a bit too much time thinking about Frostgrave)

Personally I think it works rather well. Fairly quick and easy, and easy enough to replicate to.

That is great!  I was thinking the spacing between the books might be too much; you didn't crimp it in any additionally or anything, did you?

Assuming I get the links to work...

Some random guy with a stack of books.  You can kind of see the balsa as the pages.



Here's a shelf:

Corrugated bookshelf looks great!  It's the paintwork that sells it.

Thanks Neotacha, that looks great. Very organic look to the books on the shelves,nicely haphazard.

Looks fantastic to me - and the most simple/cost effective method.  Very slick.

They all look quite good, and cost-effective is definitely important because I figure you need at least a 2 x 2 section representing the library, preferably modular, so that you can vary the layout.

Incidentally, Scheltrum has cheap "monk cells" for the haunted house scenario (scroll down), but, honestly, I think that crypts or coffins would work just as well considering that they hold wights

so,so,when Frostgrave rulebook came out,after reading scenarios,I assumed everyone's consent about "the whole board represents the underground library..." is just representational,and not meaning board full of bookshelves,literally.

then,we got one Ex-librarian player here.and he says he needs all bookshelves.

literally.





"standard library,at least,must has 10k books" he says.other guy told him "dude thats after invention of printers.medieval library does not have that much".

"manuscripting golem should be there,right?"





according to him,he is still far from his goal.there will be floor tiles,columns etc.right now,he is going to fill 2'x2' board with paper craft bookshelves.

of course,it's driving him crazy.

Mirliton just published a medieval scriptorium:

The books in the background show a possible alternative. I am thinking of alcoves in underground catacombs, where books are stacked.

Manuscripting golem is a genius idea! Wouldn't need to be a humanoid style thing either, I'm thinking a row of scriptorium desks with spaces for the books to be copied and quill arms for writing a new book.

I'm eagerly awaiting my FLGSs order of Mantics new Dungeon Saga stuff. The "Dungeon Furniture Pack" is just perfect:



Okay, two shelves and a book won't get you all the way to a library, but a) it is a start and b) the set gives you some easy and good looking treasure markers too.

Captain Y, you beat me to it :), I was also thinking of Fat Dragon terrain.
This is another example of their terrain from a recent D&D adventure of mine

I think it would be great for the Library scenario.
