Has anyone seen any good designs of castles and/or keeps built with an 18x18? Or any medieval fortress designs in general. I have built a few myself but am not entirely happy with them. If anyones up for the challenge lets have a peek and perhaps we can all share ideas

I have a bit smaller plot but I might try to do one next time I decorate. My current design kinda stinks...

I need to build it so I have a good place to put my Fountains of Life. I there will be 5 of them. :)

There was a nice one in the recent spring deco contest -

http://www.uoforums....ead.php?t=27785

It appears to be an 18x18, designed as a keep.

My latest keep design on a dirt mound, not happy with it at all. It's built on a 15*16 if I remember correctly. It's hard to combine looks with practical usage and a role playing atmosphere all in one.

Nice idea, sintoos. One thing that bugs me about those castle walls is they do not have the right tiles to create battlements, its a shame really as they are the best looking walls for a castle. Though I do like your bridge!

I did see a couple of nice ones on Europa shard up in the Luna continent area... but I'm not sure if it's still there anymore... if I see it again I'll take a screeny for you.

I'm told that this is in no way a contest winning house but it was not built to be. I needed a place to craft and Shae en Fearim was not it so...

I built a little fortress. The plot is 13x18 which is slightly smaller than the request made here but close enough for jazz.

It's a bit thin on deco in places. I have a list of items I'm hoping to acquire in time. *shrug*

Bit late...

Better late than never or so I am told.
