It's time for another terrain -related article, this time it's one of my personal favourites.

In my fantasy roleplaying game sessions, I use mostly three kinds of terrain (gaming props used with miniatures, if you are not familiar with the term): As my main setting currently is Ptolus, which is an urban setting, I'm using City terrain (houses, marketplace items etc); the second type is tiled wall terrain (which can be used for built dungeons, in
