Neighbors getting on your nerves? Does the young knight from the castle next door keep climbing your castle wall to get to your daughter?! Dragons keeping you on the run? Time to bring out the weapons and go to war! Oh, and don't forget to bring your mangonel . Them castle walls are thick and well defended!



A mangonel was used during the middle ages as mainly a siege weapon. It hurled large stones at castle walls to wear away and eventually breach the walls. Nasty and, in my opinion, gross attackers, used to also load dead animals and even PEOPLE and hurl them into the castle grounds in the hopes of spreading diseases. (O.K. enough history lesson) But it may have been handy in a dragon fight too!



Anyway, it still looks functional even though it is just a decoration for your castle yard. It would have been nice to make it fully functional, but alas, this is The Sims and not World of Warcraft <evil grin>. NOTE: Sorry, but the rocks you see in the pictures aren't included and the dragon has been vanquished! Yay!

This is my last upload for the Medieval Challenge. You will need the University EP to access this mesh in game. I had lots of fun making items and I hope you all enjoy the content in your games.
