Features

  • The Keep, is situated in the top-center of the island and sits on one of its tallest hills. A small complex includes stables, a blacksmith, a great keep, a lord's tower and another tower used by soldiers and the maester, which also serves as a beacon for ships passing near the island.
  • The main village, located west of the castle, has a dock and an inn. It is there where most trade comes in from, notably White Harbor, exporting Goats Cheese and importing various commodities.
  • Fishing, the a total of three fishing hamlets along the shore of the island, which sometimes with a small dock used by the fishing ships. The easternmost hamlet has a ferry to the isle of Sweetsister and a beacon.
  • Logging, a logging camp, situated on the west of the island, is used to chop down wood to be used on the three sister islands. There is also a beacon on the point of the island, not far from the logging camp.
  • Ruined Holdfast, near a hamlet, was destroyed during one of the northern raids on the island, part of a series of attacks called "The Rape of the Three Sisters."
  • Abandoned Island, includes a towerhouse which belonged to the old lords of Longsister, now destroyed after a feud with House Longthorpe. The island and tower is now abandoned, being only visited by people looting the shipwrecks near it.

Construction

The build took less than a month to build, since at the time of the building I didn't have a project for a while, which meant that I was eager to get building so it only took me a weekend to finish the keep. There are also a few subtle Easter eggs placed around the island, so be sure to do some exploring to find those. (See Forum)

Inspiration

Dunnottar Castle 2

Dunnotar Castle, Scotland

This was inspired by the two other sister islands, by Scottish castles and also house styles from the Vale and the North, all mixed in together. For example, the cliffs at Dunnotar Castle in Scotland inspired the terrain, even though the castle itself is in a very different style. (See Application)
