This is my second try at building a Motte & Bailey Castle. The first one was absolutely horrible, and came out looking....well just awful.

What's a Motte & Bailey Castle you ask?

I know they usually have wooden fortifications as well, but I couldn't come up with a good way to make them in-game. So I settled for a deeper moat and larger cliffs :-)

The Castle features a stone portcullis, two small thatch roofed cottages (I am having the hardest time not screaming "TROGDORRRR!" at the top of my lungs right now), a blacksmith, stable, and a large stone keep connected to the town by a wooden suspension bridge. It also features a cemetary (with ghosts!) and a small apple orchard.

The lot comes completely unfurnished (like the top-down layout picture). I left the furnishings in the pictures just to show how cool it looks decked out in Medieval gear.

Lot Size: 6x6
Lot Price: 83,375
