Tower of Harold
About this creation
The evil wizard Harold has terrorized the kingdom of Carrith Knorr
for many long years. High atop his foci tower, Harold plots the demise of our heroes.






Pop quiz kids, where does the bad guy live?






A group of heroes, assembled by the prince of Carrith Knorr, advances on the evil stronghold.






But their battle against the forces of evil will not be an easy one. Hordes of the undead march to defend the tower of Harold.






And just what the heck is that THING coming out of the front gate? I thought Phipson’s ex wife moved?






Let’s meet our brave (and soon to be eaten) heroes. Adam, Prince of Eternia and keeper of the secrets of Castle Graysk… wait, wrong story. But yeah, his name is Adam.






Joel, the Dwarf. He may be short but never underestimate his drinking… I mean battle prowess.






Sindy, the strip… ummm, Ranger. You know all those times when they ask “Who do you have to sleep with to get that job?” Well, she found out. Again and again and again…






This is Sue, the pirate. Yes he has a girl’s name, you got a problem with that?






Legolad, the elf. You get three guesses where I stole this name from and the first two don’t count.






And this is the ninja, Carl. He got his ninja degree online for 29.99! We’ll call him “appetizer” from this point on shall we?




Will our heroes be able to overthrow the evil wizard or will they end up rotting in whatever that tentacle thing coming out of the tower has for a mouth? You decide!




Fourth wall commentary: Yeah… I’m not too happy with it either. I built the tower and then wanted a background to go with it. I tried a few things for lava and wasn’t really too thrilled with what I had. I took this outside to take some pics to share with friends as WIP pics. I was able to take a few and then… disaster struck.




When you live in the “windy city” be careful that your background doesn’t catch the wind and knock your tower over…



Yeap, it’s gone. I wasn’t going to post this but I’m also not going to go back and rebuild it. Just chalk it up to stupidity on my part and move on to the next project. I figured the humor in this can make up for some of the discrepancies in the build… maybe. I promise the next one will be better.

Till next time true believers!
~Chris.

Somehow I hadn't seen this one yet. And its remarkably similar to what I just built! I know they say great minds think alike... but I also know better than to relate that saying to either of us.

As a former Dungeons and Dragons player and DM, it's always best to be prepared for your players to do something ridiculous. I used to just top their ridiculousness with something worse - so suggest that the heroes stumbled across a magic WMD which they set off, wrecking poor Harold's tower (I always sympathise with villains) then fleeing with the magic trinket they came for. This gives you carte blanche to create a new even more evil home for Harold AND generate a reason for him to want to smite your heroes in a series of increasingly more dangerous and unlikely encounters. Let the chaos ensue!

With a title like that you were always on to a winner with me. The tower kind of reminds me of Orthanc from the Lord of the Rings... you do yourself down, this is a fine MOC in my opinion.

Nice tower and an even better firery horde. There are many times I wish I had a firely moat around my house. Perfect place to for annoying visitors and pesky neighborhood pets. I'm just kidding we'd BBQ the pets in the moat. Sad to see your huge tower broken in two. Harold is only haf the man now. see ya. garth

Well, its a nice one anyways, kinda remindes the Tower of Cirith Ungol from LOTR, but your probably crazy sick and tired of earing that... You know why it fell? Brikthulhu always takes his chance on the living with freshly built MOCs ready for photo session, and the sound you heard of a million pieces falling down your tower, was his laughter and pleasure on your pain...

The lava flow looks wicked!!! Great use of the red background, really brings the black base and the characters to life somehow... must remember that. We have a windy city in NZ too, Wellington. I wouldn't dare take a lego tower outside in Wellington... great build, I like the obvious kick in the face contrast between the white "goodies" castle and... this one.
