Sanctuary Of The Damned
The Mystic Isles has always been a place of mystery and the unknown. Nobody really knows what lies in its heartland, as the deeper you go, tnhe more dangerous the waterways become and most who venture in, never return. However, many of the outer islands are home to all sorts of clans who prefer the more secret existance. Most Avalonians avoid the Mystic, so it has always been the perfect place for different clans and groups to live in secret. Of course, one of the reasons people avoid the Isles is due to a particular Isle known as 'The Dark Isle'. It is mostly covered by a thick dark forest and is reputed to be the home of the Black Knight. The legends of the Black Knight go back centuries and nobody knows who or what he really is. He is often seen on stormy nights, haunting the mist covered track ways and roads that cross the outskirts of the Isles. Some folk of Avalonia believe he is a dark guardian who watches over the realm, others believe he is an omen of disaster who's appearence forshadows a tragedy. From the shores of the Dark Isle, it is possible to see 'The Sanctuary Of The Damned'. Legend says that during the 'bad times' when Avalonia had no ruler, the Sanctuary was used as a prison for the sick and mad, left to die and rot, the echo of their screaming souls now haunt its courtyard and hallways. No one really knows what happened to them in there, but one story says they were sacrifices for the Blood Religion. Whatever happened, its a history we Avalonians do not like to remember. It now stands in disrepair and slowly nature is consuming it, but it is not empty! The Black Knight is often seen patroling this area and many believe he uses it as an outpost that guards the Dark forest. The only other group who may know its secrets are Avalonia's Assassins Guild. It is said that they sometimes hideout here and use the area for training with permission from its dark keeper. Still, even they have never ventured deep into the heart of the Dark Isle. It is said that a dark castle lies in its center, home of the Black Knight. Who knows, but if it did, it would surely hold all the answers about who he really is, what he does and what really happened at the Sanctuary. Blood Religion? This moc is a kind of prelude to a story I will be doing based on the Black Knight, so expect a few more dark creepy builds in the near future.

I saw this in the book beautiful lego, and it is just amazing. In fact, it is my favourite model in the whole book. Great job. I really like the curved wall and the stairs.

This is a great example of perfect detail throught a large scale. Although the black stones in the walls stand out too much. Dark brown yes, black no.

This creation is by far one of the best castles I have seen on MOCpages. The details are absolutely incredible. I created a Vlad the Impaler mini fig and it would fit right in with your wonderful creation.

I can't believe I missed this! Awesome work as always, kind of reminiscent of Castle Volkihar from Dawnguard, despite the fact that this was finished far before it was even announced. Anyway, great work, 5/5.

Wonderful MOC! That round tower technique works really well, and the way you blend multiple colour tiles with it perfects it! Applying this trick to the staircase must have given you quite some pains to merge it with the rocks around, but you did well to cover the gaps with greenery. Point of criticism on the big tree though; form far of it works well, but closer in the Tecnic beams and pins hurt the eyes... The rich scenery and all the nifty little and larger details make up for it, and more! Again, wonderful MOC

This is so good. I love the wild and overgrown foliage. You never leave any part of the build empty. The shapes in the tower are great. I especially like the black claws at the top to give the turret a subtle curve. Amazing.

Great! All of your buildings look so awsome! You have so much talent and on this one you created a perfect athmosphere! P.s. Could you join the group "Active Castle builders"? I set it up some time ago, with Medieval Guy. There are a lot of beginners, like me, and we all could use your help, with e.g. critism, new technics, etc. etc.

Quoting Blake Baer I was quite surprised to see that your technique works for the inside of curved walls also. Great stuff Luke, on another stunning build!
Thanks, it only just works, if the curve was any tighter the tiles would pop off. I had to do a few tests to see how tight I could get it.
