Well, here it is, my first post of '09. Ive been working on this project (and continue to) on and off for a while. Ive gone through a rebuild of some parts a few times, and plan on making more to the city in the future. Enjoy!
About this creation
An overview of what I got so far. Ive decided to name the city Mirum.
A general entering the city.
A city wall guard.
Doors on the inside of the city allow access to the catwalks.
The gate is raised.
Heres the winch system for the gate. We'll get to that later.
An overview of the city streets.
The "Town Square".
The statue in the center of the square.
The statue depicts the founder of the Vixen, Mirus. He was the first mage to realize the evil of The Book.
A street bum selling questionable beverages.
The prison guards take an orcish demon to his temporary cell.
A merchant selling giant fruit.
Another shot of the square. A drunk is disturbing the peace.
A mage practicing his skills.
These guards are chasing down a city crazy. Some of the citizens are horrified.
A local "preacher" going through his usual routine.
The closed down chapel.
I, like many, have been trying to make a decent flying bird design. Well, I finally got it.
The chapel was shut down due to illegal rituals happening in it involving a summoning portal. You can kind of see the portal. Sorry for the bad shot.
Ok, heres how the gate works: the winch holds the rope in place, and the winch is held in place by a rubberband mechanism, which keeps a peice lodged in the gear until its pushed down.
The rope leads up through this hole and to the gate.
When the rope is unwound on the winch...
The gate comes down.
Well, thats it for now. I hope to add more to the city eventually. Til' then.
Edit: Actually, I wont be adding more. I took some pictures of a seige of this place (coming in a futuer chapter) and decided to make more storyline peices. Because of this, the city was torn down to make way for the incoming MOCs. Sorry for any disapointment. :(
