Last. Catch. Up!

Finally done catching up! Check out the start of the eastern side of the kingdom as well as the location of the palace.

Playing catch-up is tough.  It’s sooooo hard to get motivated when you know that you have more work to do than normal, right? I’m totally not putting off work that I’m behind on for my job right now because I’m behind and unmotivated. I promise. Mostly.

The final sections that we’ll be checking out will be the eastern section of the kingdom and also where the palace will be. Don’t worry, only three pictures total.  It’s not that I haven’t been working over here…There’s just been a LOT of terraforming.  Hills, mountains, they’re great.  Sometimes they could be positioned a little better, though.  If they’re a little off and just not quite right, though,  you gotta fix it, right? I find myself sometimes clearing out huge sections and regretting building in the mountains in the first place, but then the work pays off in the end.

Without further ado, I present to you the eastern wall and gate…skeleton. ek01

The gate will go here. I want to put something super wicked on the top of that hilly-mountain, but I’m still unsure what would go there. Maybe an astronomy tower?ek02

Finally, without any more delay, the palace for this land.  I just realized that I don’t have a name for the land/kingdom, do I? Wow, that is a pretty massive oversight if I do say so myself.  I’m going to have to think on this one.

Anyway, I like the idea of building this palace literally on the side of the mountain.  I’m not quite sure what type of look I’ll be going for, but I think I want a lot of white to stand out against the mountain.  Structurally, I love the idea of towers and towers and some more towers.  This might be harder than I think…

No lore today, I’m sorry.  Oh, ok, fine, I’ll give it a try.

The palace, unlike other palaces that stand tall and proud on their own, seems to have grown out from the mountain.  While magic was used to help build it, much of the palace’s towers and turrets have been constructed rather than grown out of the mountain.  Fearful of an attack, the builders felt that the mountain would provide ample protection on all side, save the front, from invaders, barbarians, and other foul creatures that have a tendency to cause mayhem and panic for sport.

Next time, an update on ONE area! Here’s to normal’ish posts from here on out!
