    As far as I'm aware, Stonewardens are only Dwarven when you're dwarven.

    Likewise, Priests of leaves are only elven when you are.

    I'd say that unique dwarven/elven models for those, are more required. Technically, it would be nice to have race-specific models for all the priests, but that would be rather excessive work. How often does someone really play AV Ljosalfar?

    I'd think the elves could use human priests, or at very best be last priority. I reckon Dwarvern and Orcish priests have the highest priority.

    I believe Stonewardens used to always been dwarven, but that was changed a long time ago.


    Elves having human priests does seem odd to me. Elven priests of the leaves for Humans make more sense. Satyr priests for the elves even make more sense than human ones.

    I'm thinking more of an Elven Priest of Leaves for elven teams, or a Dwarven Stonewarden for dwarven teams.

    While noone works on Pillar of Chains, I decided to make this "evil" version:

    Tried to shape it looking at icon:


    From Nifviewer:


    In the game:


    fScale 85-100.0
    Interface scale 0.2-0.3

    :) Yeah I agree that I scaled it too much, it's scale 100 :)

    It looks too dark, but from what I can see it looks nice.

    Well, I textured it to look like a magma-red blood stone :). I am not sure about the "basement" though. Do we need it at all?

    Hmm the base does look a litle excessive. Maybe its just the scale though?

    I think the base is a bit much, but that might just be the scale.

    You didn't scale it too much, the scale is cool.

    The base is a bad idea though, I'd remove that entirely. allow other things to occupy space around it.

    Also, it's not chain-y enough. The dark color ir has in the picture, is only because it's silhouetted against sunlight in the background. It should have lots of chains, and bodies on it, and not be so dark, I think.

    And maybe not tower over the entire city ;)

    Personally my favorite wonder backstory.

    I like to think Flauros was running Slavery and rushed it.

    "over the entire city" = scale.
    I will remove the basement.

    The scale should be made of SKULLS!

    can you make it look more like chains, too?

    Perhaps just photosource a chain picture off the internet, scale down appropriately. Copy and paste it 5000 times, making them all overlap and look intertwined.

    Well, initially the "basement" texture was "skulls", but they are too huge if you look at city.

    Anyway, I've removed basement, retextured it to be not that dark and added a transparent plane with chains as Warkirby suggested.

    Well, that looks nicer, but it's not what I was suggesting at all.

    I meant chains wrapped around the pillar itself, textured on.

    It's a "Pillar of Chains" not "Pillar with chains hanging off it" :p
    I generally envisioned it as being visually, almost nothing but chains, with people tangled in them
