My only problem with the whole thing is that there was no divinci catagory. I spent months designing something.
That and no outpost catagory, but I can adapt
Di Vinci was an excellent category but we did not have a prize this year that fit well for that category. I suggest entering that creation into the miscellaneous category. The outpost entries would work very well in the "Classic Castle Creation" category. Pick a theme like forestmen or wolfpack to populate your creation and enter it!
In the castle theme, do corner towers count as "side towers"? It seems an unusual description, I'm not sure what is meant as side towers. A tower in the middle of the side wall, not at the ends?
Yes. Basically have a few archer towers in addition to a gate/entrance tower.
Also, the need for "interior buildings" gives the impression they need to be stand-alone. Yes or no?
Buildings inside the courtyard can be attached to the castle (sharing one wall or more with the castle wall).
One question for Pat though. Did you name your wizard before or after I posted my wizard's tower
I forgot Pat's wizard's name and for some reason Nilrem came to mind. So I probably got the name wrong and will have to change it. Freak, please send me a pm with the correct name.
Limitations on time frame? High Middle Ages only? Early Middle Ages (Dark Ages, Age of Migrations - kinda by definition included for the Viking stuff)? Classical (Greece, Rome)? Ancient (Egypt)? Fantasy of the periods above?
A good time period would be the fall of Rome to the burning of London in 1666. So vary late Roman and late medieval is cool but ancient Greeks/Egyptians or the Industrial Age would not be.
