Best fortress design

Yeah, this just came to me and I was wondering if you would like to design your own fortress.

Not actually draw it but just describe it. You would get to control the landscape around it, the walls, the turrets, how the forces will be assembled, etc.

Of course, I'm thinking like the Middle Ages too. I thought that this might be fun to do.

What would be the point if you can't draw it?
* Turrets
* Towers
* Battlements
* Cannon holes
* Thin windows for archers
* Moat
* Thick walls (Moats are much more effective so both is even better)
* Built on a big cliff so that an attack is virtually impossible
* One big tower to spot enemies from afar
* Ridges on the pathways to assist in rolling up cannonballs
* Drawbridge
* Chapel at the top, why not? Most castles/forts did.
* Pots and pans holes for dumping objects and boiling water.
* Spires

Pretty much the usual stuff.

Mine would probably have a huge neon sign that says "Mufasa's house of horrible sodomy!"

Why would anyone even want to knock that down?

Are you kidding? That would have the religious right on you like stink on a hippy.

I don't see much point to just describing a fortress, as they're all going to sound essentially the same. >_>

I would have my own Pyramid of Power (Aztec style), complete with advanced EMP shielding, rail guns, full flight capabilities, enough missiles to blow up half a hemisphere, a personal war room complete with holo-projectors... your standard flying fortress of doom, only without a self-destruct.

Good, bad, I'm the mod with the gun.

There's no real point reading your posts, Kaiox, you don't seem to make any sort of sense.

This thread needs less hi-jacking. Whether you thought it was innovative or not, the guy proposed designing your own fort. He didn't say you had to make an MS Paint of it, but that didn't mean you couldn't. It's not like he came out and said "DON'T MAKE ANY PICTURES OF YOUR FORT." I doubt many of you would have done it had he asked anyway, seeing as noone has done so yet. If you don't like the way the thread was made or thought it was worded weird, fine. That's still no reason to side-track the thread with "This is pointless" or "This makes no sense."

CASTLE FREDBEZ

...has fallen.

It is now Castle Freedom!
Nah, Castle Inq. It sounds better this way.

True, all of my golliwogs died in battle, but it's a very very small price to pay for my success.*

Looks like my castle is now the best. Smile
The castle already looks much better. My kingdom will be a utopia!
