Information (Click for more details):
This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
A while ago, I undertook a request from HystericalParoxysm to build a "big freaking castle" for her. Well... after many weeks of hard work (and a few weeks of me being incredibly flaky), I produced this, the Dark Fortress. This castle is the home of Jesher and the setting of HP's unpublished story, which is also conveniently untitled. (If there is a title, I haven't heard about it yet. :D)
Anyway, on to the castle!
Lot size: 5 x 6
Note: When I was designing this castle, I used Gromit's fantastic gargoyle everywhere. To improve performance on a slower computer, I would suggest that you remove the extra gargoyles from around the castle (or all of 'em if you'd like).

My Policy Thingy-
Ok, I know this is only a lot, and it's not an outfit or a piece of furniture, but it's STILL a piece of art that I worked very hard to create, and I would appreciate if you wouldn't redistribute it anywhere else. If you feel some strange need to refurnish the castle, I *suppose* it's alright to upload it here, as long as you ask me first. Anyone who uploads this castle on the exchange will suffer a most gruesome and miserable death. Anyone who uploads this castle on a paysite will face my undying wrath AND shall be burninated.
Oh, and since the whole point of making this castle was to create a story setting, feel free to use it in any of your own stories/pictures. A little bit of credit would be nice.
