This is the first 100% hand-mined and built structures that I have posted on Planet Minecraft. Contrary to popular belief, I can build nice things without infinite items and/or WorldEdit, I just don't (usually). All the materials used to build this epic castle of doom were ripped out of the ground with my bare hands (and a pickaxe!), with the exception of the obsidian, which was mined mostly by slave labor.

I built most of this castle back in early April. It's listed as only 90% finished because the map I made it on was reset before I got around to finishing it. The towers, skull, and walls are all finished but I don't like the current keep and would go back and rebuild it if I had time. Credit goes to NiteRiderFTW for helping me clear out the area, dig the foundations, and mine the ridiculous amount of obsidian in this thing. Much love to you wherever you are now man.

Unlike my other builds posted so far, this castle was made to fit in a specific area. The schematic contains hills, beaches, and part of an ocean. If you're using worldedit to paste it you'll end up standing in the skull's mouth at sea level, with the bulk of the castle being south of you (old south, not Notch's new "south"). Get ready for tons of fun landscaping to fit the castle into wherever you decide to paste it, it's edges aren't clean like my other builds.

Size: 63(W) x 75(L) x 37(Height of the towers above sea level)
