Fake door for castle room

    Hey, I'm looking for ideas on how to make a fake door for one of the southern 1st floor rooms of my castle. I'm thinking of decoing it as a jail / dungeon, so curtains won't exactly look the most secure, ya know? Lockdowns aren't a huge issue. Thanks!

    You can stack sugar cane to make it look like bars.

    Perhaps some sort of Magincia Rubble full wall, and attach something to look like a door knob and/or hinges.

    Thinking Palisade wall, but any type could work.

    Unsure what to do for the doorknob. Anniversary Coin? ML gem? or just a lockpick?

    Well, I can't find any sugar cane, or rubble for sale...so I tried benches, and it kinda worked!

    Originally on the right side doorway I had black staves stacked up...it actually looked pretty decent. Then I realized there isn't something similar that faces the other direction for the other doorway. Kinda blew my plan. I might recolor the benches a slightly lighter shade of gray.

    If you want to try the 'stacked staves' look quarter staffs and blow pipes (glass blowing) should fit the bill I think? Both can be dyed with natural dye

    Really? I thought I tried natural dyes with a quarter staff...hmm. I'll have to try again.

    Is there anything skinny like a staff that stands vertical? I'd like to criss cross some bars.

    I tested before I posted, dyed one of each with a black dye, though I think plain or metal would be better.
    Best I can come up with for uprights is stacked vials of silver serpent venom.

    Lit torches are one of the few skinny vertical items ingame. You could get a vertical effect dying yarnballs black (or grey) then stacking them up, but at the expense of lockdowns. Another option might be silver coins, two of them will make a thin vertical line so you would not need to stack as many on each other, but because they sit low on the tile they will not go very high. I might mess also around with those little tokuno paintings (as door panels) or clock frames, and do a dyed yarnball for the door knob (if it were me).
