My entry for the CCCX Trade and Toll category

After getting through the zombie infested dark forest, and meeting up with Nicohloas Mactagen in Dragonsmouth town. Mencot and Hannah, now joined by Nicohloas continued their journey northeast towards Garheim. Taking a small vessel from Dragonsmouth, travling up the river Fyrla they soon approached the Garheim boarder. The forests changed into harsher terrains,
high mountains and low valleys. The weather change quickly also, temperatur dropped and snow started to fall. The journey on the river was about to get really dangerous, nearly going under. But that´s an diffrent story.
Finally crossing the Garheim boarder the first stop was, as for all travlers by river the toll tower at Flussquelle village. The toll master there Johann Löwenkopf, was one of the official toll masters appointed by Jhirian Eindrik ruler of Garheim. But to some people these toll masters where "Robber Barons", because they thought that the toll masters charged an unjust and higher toll then needed.
But Mencot and his company stopped here with delight because the toll master was Mencots cousin. Altough half of the cargo was lost in the danger of the river, the most important was saved and delivered here.

Arriving at the toll house at Flussquelle village. Bringing the personal message from High Lord prince Jarius and the surviving goods from Loreos and Lenfald to the toll master there Mencots cousin, Johann Löwenkopf.

This was a fun build, tried out some new techniques, some good others not so good. I think it turned out pretty good.
All C & C welcome :D

A very nice scene, I like the layout of it and the stonework on the building. The wharf also looks good.
I would suggest changing the 2x4 plate that's the rudder right now with 2 1x4 tiles facing the camera connected with a 2x2 plate on the back and something similar for the 2x8 plate on the side of the boat, if you have the pieces of course. Overall excellent work, the shield over the door looks perfect :D

The boat was abit of a hurry build, I know I should had concentrated more on it, but I have some idea for a moc using it for why it looks like that :D
About the shield, i think so also, I wondered that it would be to big there but good that somebody thinks it fit there :)
