Trust me, you don't want to do that. A map of the tunnels would be far more trouble than it's worth, believe me. :dry: :unsure:

It's quite weird actually constructing something like this as my mental image of Poe is quite different from the actual layout... Anyway, time to start making a rough first floor (second floor to you Americans :P).


Ahh... it's not surprising that your mental image of Poe is different from that layout, because as far as published stories go, that layout does not exist yet. The "current" Poe (pre-Summer 2007) is quite a bit smaller, is a single block (corresponding roughly to the bar of the "H" in the New Poe) and it doesn't have many of the amenities of the New Poe.

As for mapping the tunnels, at this moment I don't see much point to it. The Devisor Labs part of it is canonically a rabbit warren sort of thing, with all sorts of weird offshoots and parts that aren't even in the school's official maps

There might be SOME point to mapping the main tunnels -- the ones that link the buildings -- and some major features, such as exactly where are Arena '77, Arena '99, the hatch above Tiny Tim (where it was raised to the surface in Halloween) and the vehicle access to the Gearheads' garage (where they get their cars in, and where Ergonomic's BOLO went out). But those will have to wait until the two TINCCs decide to make an Official Campus Map.

As for the Devisor Labs themselves, I favor showing them in some undefined form -- sorta like that "cloud" graphic we IT people draw on diagrams to represent the Internet when explaining some network concepts to laypeople. Well, maybe a mess of spaghetti instead of a cloud... but you get the idea.

Also: when the time comes for applying textures, I believe that the exterior walls of Poe (and, in fact, most cottages -- Melville, being a modern-styled building, is the major exception -- and some of the campus buildings) are brick-clad. In Fall Term 2007 those walls will be pretty new and still ivy-free... well, unless some nature mage decides to help the ivy grow super-fast, so Poe might look suitably ivy-clad in a short time. But by 2nd Gen time that ivy covering will be a near certainty.

Don't call me "Shirley." You will surely make me surly.

It wouldn't surprise me at all if some of the tunnels are non-Euclidean

Here you go. The main and primary supplemental tunnel map. Main tunnels in blue.

Actively discouraged on campus. Legend is that a campus tunnel map, when drawn out, would be a summoning circle for something really hyper-horrible and nasty and powerful :ohmy:

Well dang, I was trying to keep that bit quiet, Elrod. If I'd known it was meant to be common knowledge I'd have been glad to reveal that part of it. ;) :whistle: B)

Alright so I've got the floorplan of the attic more or less down, you can't see it in the image but the top surface is where the attic floor level would be. I'm going by the scale of the stairwell in terms of the width of the building at each level.

Also would something like this be a good reference for the roof shape?

That's Jackson Pollock's "Blue Poles" and we Australians own it and you can't have it back.
