    I'm not going to say where (obviously) but I think I found a plot big enough to place a castle in. I have counted out... and I believe that a castle is 31 X 31 can anyone else confirm this?

    You need to count it as 32 though from front to back. There is an extra tile in the front for the stairs.

    32 Including the steps but you can often time stagger placement enough so the steps fit into a "gap."


    The rules:

    Five tiles open space north and south.

    One tile open space east and west.

    Housing will be eligible in five or more tiles away from the front and back and a one or more tile distance on the east and west.

    There must always be at LEAST five empty tiles between one structure and another when they are placed north and south of each other.

    Five tiles open space north and south only if there is a house in front or behind. If there is no other house then all you need is the one tile rule all the way around. Just to clarify a little.

    Sometimes even the King needs correction.

    I try not to appear to knowledgeable at times... people might get the crazy idea that I have 10+ years experience with House placement and IDOC's and then get some CRAZY idea that maybe I don't just have uber leet hax.
    I CAN'T be having THAT rumor started!

    *Runs off to try and place a castle in Malas*
