This joust is what I think a real joust would look like. Many people (including me) build joust with no peasants, so it looks like they're jousting in an abandond ally :?. This, though, has more of a hoard of citizens, an amazing sight. Add to that a perfect gate, and a feast, and you have my five stars out of five!:D

I can't see any image when clicking on Bruce's link. Is anyone having the same problem?

Brickshelf seems a little wonky today. Right now (Friday, ~3:00 PM EST) it's not connecting.
Edit - 3:20 PM EST it's working again

It works for me. Well anyway back to my thoughts. What I see is detail for a medevil village, and peasant and lord alike having fun!

Wonderful!

I see that I'm not the only one with a great supply of black roof slopes in various shapes. As always, another great MOC that inspires me to build! :D

I like the medieval life aspect of this MOC. Also, it's cool how the floors lift off at the base of the walls!

Thanks for finding this, Bruce. I really like the design of this, and the way that a lot of detail, including the joust and the surrounding building, were fit into a relatively small area without making the scene look too cramped. The building design is simple but attractive, and the joust is really well done.

This is very cool.

The stands and the crowds are well done, and I like the landscaping. With the exception of the beds, the interiors are nice.

Those must be some rich villagers to have buildings like that.

Absolutely brilliant work. There's a very Middle Ages feel here, and the buildings are solid and to a realistic scale. The load of people watching is also good. As smcginnis noted, the beds could use some work however.
