Let's get into some of the accessories and options available from Hammered Game Tables, and specifically what I chose.
The first ones I want to tackle are the $130 option for Under-Lip Lighting, and the included player stations.
Under-Lip Lighting consists of strings of bright LED lights that lend themselves perfectly to lighting the player stations allowing easy reading and writing.
One suggestion I am going to make to Hammered Game Tables now that it is obvious to me, is to include a raised strip of wood just inside the drawer with a depression for holding pencils so they do not roll around when opening and closing the drawer.
There is of course, another advantage to the under-lip lighting . . . mood. If you want to run a session of a horror game or your adventure takes place in a very dark location, this lighting does wonders.
The lights are not just along the two long sides. There is also a strip attached to the GM caddy ensuring that the ref isn't flying blind. Oh, and if you want to be a real rat bastard, you control which lights strips are on or off from switches placed somewhere around the GM caddy.
Even with the room lights on, the LEDs are still bright and useful for the players.
Next post I'll be talking about the GM caddy and the Dwarven Runes I opted to have added to the table.
