    After looking at all the designs.
    Looking for functionality, easy of moving around.
    And an over all good area to play with.
    IE doing deco.
    I have decided on DevilsOwn as the winner.

    How does one go about creating a design? On a free shard? A lot of copy and pasting? Just curious how people were able to do such, like the decorating of brit bank, and the fairgrounds one.

    Lady Devils Own,

    Hey your in luck. I have enough Gold on Legends to pay you there instead of you comming over ot Napa to pick it up. Let me know when I can pop in and pay you your 25 million in Gold Grand Prize!

    Mmm i've been playing with an 18x18 version and i'm not sure it will work, atleast not and give it any justice to your beautiful design..it would be exceedingly cramped looking :( *sad!* Court yard wouldnt even show in an 18x18 hehe.. Ohhh well. Doubtful the devs are gonna redeisgn castles but oh man if they did make it look like yours i would be doing anything to try and get a castle lol!

    I considered it but I didn't know where to start. I have some half-baked ideas; maybe I'll post them later, since I'll have a little more time the next few days.

    Congrats to DevilsOwn! I like that design, it's really pretty and I'd love to see castles like that dotting the lands of Britannia... *coughcoughhintdevsbettertakenoticecough* :D

    we can only hope, Faerunner :)

    I think maybe the trouble is (thinking about some of the exceptional whining that goes on over at UHall) that we are, as a group, a bit too polite :D

    would like to say a big Thank You! to Lord Nabin for making the prize available to me on my home shard of Legends

    I redesigned the keep, but I really didn't make major changes. I mainly took out the "courtyard" areas on the lower floor and utilized that space, as well as made the lower rooms accessible from the first floor.

    This design should be sent to the Dev's as an alternative castle design. I would be happy to have my castle look like this design.
