This is the imposing and foreboding Castle Grey, situation on the southern cliffs of the Firsthold Mountain range. It overlooks the Valinite city of Ironhould and is considered as one of the most impenetrable fortresses in Caelteria. Castle Grey has been in existance (within our lore) for about seven hundred years and has always been home to the Grey Order, an order of demon-slayers, knights, heros, and other reputable warriors who have taken vows of poverty and an oath to serve no nation alone, but all. They have gained a reputation for being fierce in battle, calm and collected, and seek out any abomination or demon to destroy it.

I started building Castle Grey about four months ago and it has been part of the larger project of Ironhould, the Valinite city. While Castle Grey is not part of the city's governing body, the Grey Order is widely regarded as the people to look to in times of crisis and thus have an informal role on the governor's council. They are currently lead by Grandmaster Arthurin Laythein, a Valinite warrior of great power and intelligence. The castle's style mimics a sort of baroque style construction but uses more Austrian style building materials and layout (lots of stone and reinforcement).

I have laid this out in such a way that you will see the project change and evolve over time, with hopefully the first picture representing the current state of progress.

Eventually I will make some Mytehrian ruins that will sit under Castle Grey, for which the order uses it as a sort of initiation grounds and will play host to a sort of 'dungeon' for our world.

This is an ongoing project of mine and it will be updated several times as time goes on; please if you have any suggestions or comments, I would be happy to hear from you~!

Hooray! Thanks for the pop reel ladies and gents. ^_^

Update #3 : 11/28/2013 2:27:04 pmNov 28th, 2013

Added top of the roof, spiral staircase inside the main tower. Will be adding the top keep and furnishing the rooms as finishing touches. Ruins underneath Castle Grey will be a separate project entirely (a rather large dungeon).

A custom pack called the Caelteria resource pack, which is only available through us.
Oh D: okay

You can get it, you just have to go through our site lol... But it is built for use with Noppe's custom NPC mod and other mods, such as CTM. So you might find it excessively large.

Looks like an old, imposing prison of some sorts. Could you update it with a night-shot?

Also, nice backstory and attention to detail. +1
