|Gates of the Moon|
|Project Lead:||Quikfox, lorddyvim|
- Dual Keeps, one for both the seat of Lord Royce, and the winter seat for the Arryns.
- Strong Defense, the entire site is designed with protection in mind. From the initial moon-clad drawbridge to the thin rear postern gate, breaching this castle's natural and man-made defenses defenses would prove quite difficult for any army that was capable of making it past the Bloody Gate.
- Arryn Crypts, located beneath the septry on the western side, the crypts house the remains of many Eyrie Lords.
The Gates of the Moon took approximately two and a half months from idea stage to finished product. The Gates is supposed to be an old structure that looks 'mean and ugly'. In this regard, no plaster was used in its construction, rather just grey stone. Two small mountain streams were added to feed the moat to provide water and water-based technology for the castle.
Since the castle was described as having square towers, and the Vale's propensity towards marble and plaster had been ruled out, the facade of Vajdahunyad Castle provided quite a bit of inspiration for the build. (See Application.)
