D&D Mansion

I was part of a Dungeons and Dragons group in college that was running an "Epic" campaign (over level 20). The group also had access to the Stronghold Builder's Guidebook, so of course we had to design an epic manor for the party to call home. This was all done in Carrara, so I can't easily open the files any more, but I still have these renders to show for it. Many of these are duplicated with slight variations because I was consulting with the other party members about their preferences.
This penchant for making 3D models of TTRPG dwellings would crop up again when I designed a rambling hobbit cottage where our characters could retire.

If you have comments or feedback, feel free to leave it here. If you'd like to commission a custom 3D model, I can help you with that.

Entry Commons and Bedrooms

I'm not sure why I never made any top-down or front view renders. Maybe I was planning on doing landscaping and I never got around to it?

I was quite pleased with how the main doors in the Entry Way turned out. I hadn't figured out door frames at this point.

Commons

You'll notice the only difference here is the wood walls. I forget who had the idea to have the grain of the wood flecked with gold, but that's the asthetic I ended up using.

Main Commons, you can see this is an early render from before the library was furnished.

The wizard character in this and the following renders is standing in the entryway doorway. You might recognize this character from another old image.

I started experimenting with lightbulbs on the ceiling in addition to everburning torches in wall sconces. The visual aesthetic for Epic tier D&D isn't particularly well established. Plus I refused to use any visual reference.

Main Hall, with the stairs up to the second story common room seen on the left.

Second Floor Commons

Second Floor Commons

A palatial bedroom for the player characters. There were four of these, but they all look basically the same. I never got around to furnishing them. I think these were all on the third story.

I forget how many Servant Quarters there were. Four? Eight? Anyway, they were tiny.

Exterior

I forget why I made so many renders of this particular Exterior Second Floor Patio, but here you go

Exterior Back Night. Here you can get an idea of the layout of the manor. The Library is on the left, common rooms in the center on the first and second floors, and bedrooms on the third story. Was there a kitchen? Dining hall? Who knows.

Library

Because epic spellcasting is more powerful if you have access to an extensive book collection, the manor was designed with a whole wing comprising a two level library.
