    Hey everyone – I don’t normally use paper/cardstock buildings in my games, but I think I’m running a one-off Halloween game, so I’m looking for inexpensive terrain options and I think paper terrain is the way to go.

    The players in our campaign have been fighting skirmishes against goblin, hobgoblin, and orc tribes. My idea is to have them enter a dream world where they encounter the vengeful spirits of the forest fae who were killed when the goblinoids first cut down the forest.

    I’m looking for some printable terrain buildings, spooky/ethereal stuff (a haunted dream forest), and, also, haunted circus stuff. Tents, big top, food stands, that sort of thing.

    Medieval/Unseelie fae Court themed, ideally – but, obviously I can make do with anything close.

    Also I need some paper generic medieval civilians.

    I’m completely unfamiliar with current sources and options for printable terrain & game pieces, so any recommendations would be much appreciated.

    Thank you!

    Not what you asked for but how about making airy, misty type terrain out of cotton wool?

    Tired is enough.

    Yep, I’m planning on doing a bit of that for the outer edges of the board.  Cheap and easy – my favorite kind of terrain for one-off adventures!

    OK, this may be nonsense but I’ll suggest this: see through plastic sheets.

    It would have to have some substance so anything from laminating sheets to perspex. Cut it into rectangular lengths at a height that suits you. Find a way to stick it to your table edge (simple is best: blue tac? Bulldog clips?).

    Now by itself it should partly reflect & distort what’s on the table. By adding lighting elements, this may be enhanced. I’m thinking cheap LEDs or even a few torches to shine from the outside. You could add colour to the light using cellophane.

    Alex, I hope this has some worth to you. I’m trying to be creative….and it hurts! My inspiration is the Gothic Horror movie, “Yellow Wallpaper” which has these opaque walls.
