Hello everyone, I present to you our latest project.

Thalvon - Land of Kings

It has been quite some time since we last posted due to a number of things, but here it is.



Many years ago, 3 Kings ran their lands in poverty and wrang out the money from the land and used it for their own ventures. They painted their halls with gold and held banquets for each other with the money of the weak.

Angered; the Gods retaliated and sent the kings and their nobles to a savage land of steep cliffs, stone and dragon. For a while the men did not know if they would make it out alive, hiding from the beasts that flew above them. However at great expense they began to rebuild a small settlement on the slope of a mountain. They built out of stone so that the buildings would stand up the the wrath of dragonfire. They learned from their mistakes and throughout many generations sent down the wisdom of equality and teamwork in a community.

The people of the dark realm began to conquer their dragon overlords and succeed in rebuilding a great civilisation. Their first castle was a large but humble place, used to defend the inhabitants of the town that they had begun to call Thalvon. The Fith King of this castle managed to hunt, take down, and eventually even tame a dragon with his bare hands, which to this day remains as a guardion of this castle, known by the locals as Dragon's Keep.

It now holds the evil-doers of the lands, and acts as a dungeon. There can be no peace of course, without a strong rule. The Thalvonian people after all the hardship they endured over those hundreds of dark years eventually began to flourish, but still built in stone as was needed to protect from the dragons that still roam the lands.

The crown jewel of the people is the Palace that stands galantly above the city, a home for those who need it, and the place for the knights and dragonslayers to meet in council.

The Gods however do not believe the People should have got off so lightly; to them 100s of years is the blink of an eye. They created Scarr. He sleeps in a tomb all his own close to the town, ready to bring waste if the Gods deem the time right. It is because of this that the Thalvonian people are all trained in archery, as some day their life may depend on it.

I like this :D
thank you for build and share this map :)
Please add in a .zip file option! Most people can't use .rar files!
any interior
I absolutely love it!
This has to be one of my favorite builds. The way the build is set up and the way the structures blend in with the landscape is just amazing. Great concept well executed along with amazing renders. Bravo!

I'm not sure if this account is still active, however, I thought I would say how much I like this project - it's sublime: the way the structure merges into the mountainside and the attention to detail is fantastic.

I particularly like the support struts seen in the 3rd picture.

Great job guys - definitely one of the better builds I've seen submitted to PMC.
Thanks lynch, still active, hopefully getting something weve been working on up soon just had a quiet spell as many people have been busy.

Hey, that's incredible!
Those renderings are really great, congrats!
Absolutely amazing, I wouldn't manage that even if I had 10 years on me!
Great job guys, diamonds and subcribing for you!

Could I use your work if possible? Like for a medieval adventure server? :) I'll send a PM for further details
By the way, I checked the map and I found out that the inside are missing and some other places, are you gonna fix that.. or..?

we got bored of the project, no sense doing more to a project you don't enjoy working on. It is a game after all :)
Aww that's sad, I thought about using it and give credits to you...
Would it be any chances that you could finish it later? Or try? Maybe you get inspiration if you look at my project and think about your work into a whole map of mysteries, quests and adventuring? :P

I love it. Looks very scenic because of the terraforming and multiple levels. I really like how every separate build is close enough to each other to be in view. This is some mastercraft planning and execution. Great job guys!

I remember checking this out late yesterday, thinking "I can't imagine how many diamonds this is gonna get". At that time, there was about 4 or so diamonds, the project is now at 129 diamonds at the time of this comment. Amazing job if I do say so myself!

You've got my deepest respect...though I have to say, that I didn't like the Video. It doesn't live up to the build (I hope you can say that... my english isn't the best).
But the build is just amazing.
I came to my cinematographer at the last second, giving him only a matter of hours to produce a full cinematic. Given the circumstances i think he did a great job :) Thanks for your feedback tho glad you like it.
