Rossen Manor for "the embassy challenge in the Guilds of Historica" on Eurobricks. We were to build an embassy in an enemy land. I built in the Eastern Darklands of Nocturnus
About this creation
I send you word from Rossen Manor, the Avalonian Embassy at the foothills of the Rakath Mountains in Nocturnus. Yesterday Rossen Manor played host to Andonii, the Chancellor of Avalonia, and his companion, William Harkenshire, the Lord of Panik. They share your concerns and those of our Lord Rex about the growing darkness in Historica. Even here, in the shadow of the mountains in the Eastern darklands, a cloudy gloom grows.
The gloom is seemingly the only thing that grows in Nocturnus these days. Though Avalonian plants still sprout inside our estate, anything that touches the Nocturnian soil or air dies and withers instantly. Even the trees and Violetís vine outside our walls appear more lifeless than usual. My eyes long to see the lush life of the Avalonian hills and rivers once again. I want to feel the sunlight upon my face, and gaze upon the beauty of the Pearl City. I fear the darkness may take this land before I ever have that chance.
The Chancellor warned us to increase our garrison at the manor in case our fragile relations with the Nocturnians finally cracks in these dark days. Peace at the manor has been uneasy, but constant. We have not had to ring the warning bell in Rossen Tower for years. It was said the noise from the bell disorients and drives the local minotaur population mad.
To prepare for the dark times, we have sent out a call for sharpshooters and a request to Lord Rex for any arms he can spare from the forges of Albion. We now ask you, Lord of Mesodraconem, to send any siege engineers that may be able to help us prepare the defenses for the coming storm. I fear the first rains may fall here, at Rossen Manor, the only ray of sunlight in these black lands.
I love the woodwork and the joint stone work, it really make it look cool, I understand little of the guilds but this is cool and will threaten all others!
I love the detail, your obviously an expert at castle, so could you please give me some feed back on my first proper attempt?
