Thanks for the comments. Poe stories are becoming my own little Halloween tradition.
Not sure what I'll do next year, but the Tell-Tale Heart and the Pit and the Pendulum are probably his other most famous short stories.
Formendacil: "I was confused for a while as to which fig was Fortunato"
I see what you mean. I've gone back and altered the text to remove the line referring to Montresor's smile and experience with wines from the first two frames, so hopefully it will be more obvious that green guy = Fortunato.
TheBohrok: "I especially liked the stained glass windows!"
I can't take credit for those. That was very much inspired by this thread two weeks ago
. I tried my hand at a window and then figured it would be perfect in Montresor's home.
TheOrk: "All Poe stories freak me out and that was no exception."
Hehe. That means I've done my job.
Josh: "I, too, was a little confused at first about which fig was which"
Hopefully the changes above make this more clear.
Josh: "I showed this to my wife and it turns out she has never read this story. Now she is going to go get it off of our shelves."
Cool! Show her my Tolkien tale next.
Then the Moby Dick scene . . .
Redbeard: "Did you build the set specifically for the story?"
I originally made the domed pavilion in response to this thread
and then I was kind of looking for a use for it. The two buildings in the background of the town square are from Minas Tirith. The window was as described above. All else was original for this.
