OK so the the contest is for CASTLES! You can make it
big or small but it has to look like a castle with five
feet thick outer walls. Preferably a ground floor and a
top floor and/or basement. Fully furnished, carpets,
furniture, etc. No NPCs (people) needed but if you
wanted to throw in a dog or horse, etc gor for it.
Ideally the castle would have the following elements:


    * COURTYARD
    * STABLES
    * THRONE ROOM/MEETING HALL
    * NOBLE BEDROOMS
    * SERVANTS QUARTERS
    * SOLDIER BARRACKS
    * STORAGE ROOMS: WEAPON/FOOD/BEDDING
    * PRIVY/BATHROOMS
    * STUDY/LIBRARY
    * VAULT (VALUABLES)
    * HOLDING CELLS


EXTRAS would be:

    * GARDENS / HEDGE MAZES
    * DUNGEONS / CAVERNS
    * WIZARD ROOM / LAB
    * etc.


Also there is an "Asset/Art" contest so create some
original or even modifications for your map! Good luck!

Here is the "sky view" of Yun Lujing (Path of the Clouds) Keep. It guards a narrow pass high in the mountains. To the
north is a fertile high plain and to the south the Eternal Kingdoms. Animal hides come down from the north and metal and
finished goods come up from the Kingdoms in the south. Fog banks constantly move through the valley, especially at dawn
and dusk which keeps the guards on their toes. Arrow slits puncture every wall giving the defenders plenty of protection
and a (sort of) clear view on less hazy days. The interior layouts to come:




And the Zip:

Thanks, its the murky water danelpryor posted tiles dozens of times vertical.
Then I used the puppet tool in PhotoShop CS to make it"snake."

Hint: You have to make the water long enough to cover the serpentine (took me three tries, I had to extend the
"river" way off the screen and play with it.)

Oh and then I copied and pasted the river back on top of itself, made it 70% transparent and applied FX like
inner and outer glow to get the edges looking "real-ish." I realized to get water to look right you have to
have layers of different transparencies. I have been using PS off and on for 30 years and I an finally
getting good in some ways.

Yeah I need to switch to Adobe sometime. I would love to
be able to transform textures, etc. I can't figure out
how to do that in Paint Phop Pro 2019.

There is Gimp, it's like PS but free. It doesn't do
everything though.
