is another special: Today is St Nicholas!
Today I have a real treasure for you to celebrate that event!
Yup, this is the chest from the title screen sporting a chest, so if you want to make that the title of your game, you can now actually encounter this thing in game. And if not, a large ornate chest would make a great end of dungeon or boss fight reward!
Talking about the theme started with the gnome, here we have it again:
The tree dungeon!
You might remember my old XP tree dungeon, and a tree dungeon was actually on of my first VX Ace resources... and the quality was really bad, so I remade it for VX Ace once I had a little practice, but somehow I had never picked that theme up... until today. Or until a month ago because I had to make all that stuff beforehand of course.
Most of what you see is from scratch, besides the ground tiles. There is not that much decoration, but basically, you can use anything that works for dark forests on the inside, so that is okay. For my test screen I just used some stuff from the outside set.
The roots are a little tricky, but there are also rootless bases in case you wanna spare yourself the steress or make multiple layers, then they are necessary.
Do you guess the 2nd theme now?
Also... if @fizzly
was dying yesterday already I might have killed him today... Before he had asked for this set I noticed his like on my 8? year old post with some tree dungeon tiles and I was like "Huh neat. Past me had some nice ideas." and started working on the set.
