The Fortress Of Tykla Imoorian
When I finally completed the design of Cora the great white, I felt motivated to create a castle/fortress of my own. Seeing all great castlebuilds here on Mocpages just made it easier. This creation was completed in September 2010, but because of other ongoing projects Iīm posting this creation now instead. If you stay to the end make sure to watch the Youtube clip of the digital realltime build! Iīm glad if you rate and comment before you leave this page! Now letīs go!
About this creation
The fortress were designed by the first king of the Tykla Imoorian kingdom in 1283. Many wars came and gone and despite numerous siege attempts the fortress was never defeated. Now in the year 2012 it serves as a public museum.
The opening hours are 10-16, Mon-Sun! Free entry so donīt hesitate!



The drawbridge is down, welcome inside!



So you want a guided tour? We are glad offering you sunny weather today!



First stop, the kingīs great balcony where he keeped watch of his subjects!



The Keep has two main gates. This is the Dark Gate where evil monsters lurked!



The second gate is called the Bright Gate. It balances Evil with the Good!



In this view we see the secondary balcony of the Keep.



The balcony is shrouded in mystery. Some believed that the ghost of the kingīs late wife lived there. Sometimes you could hear screams of agony and anger. No one dared to enter the balcony at night, not even the king himself. So do you believe in ghosts?



Down below the curtain wall you have the water outlets that continuously fills the moat with water from an underground well to preserve the defensive function.



At the Inn you can drink as much beer as you want! Very friendly staff!



Across the Inn you find the Great Hall where the king kept his festive gatherings. Do you see the tree in the middle of the yard? Itīs as old as the fortress itself!



There are also a stable for horses and two small gardens with homegrown vegetables!



The pride of the fortress! The Gatehouse screams of power and glory!



When the fortress got built it needed a very strong foundation to stand the test of war and time. Over 700 years later it looks as strong as ever!



Itīs unknown why the king prefered the bullhorn as the symbol of his reign, but itīs a qualified guess that he used it to place fear in his many enemies.



But wait, where did that strange crystal come from?? Humm ackward, well anyway...



Taking a close look at the curtain wall reveals the nearly indestructible design.



The guard towers are not open to the public right now as they are under renovation!



WHAT?? The crystal has moved! What Evil could be at work? Stay away from it...



The outer curtain walls were built long after the sieges had ended. Still very old!



Most of the Tykla Imoorian kingdom consisted of large forests. The trees have grown very tall indeed and makes this a beautiful place, far away from any civilisation.



Birdīs eye perspective!



Top-view perspective reveals the layout.



This concludes the guided tour! Be sure to visit again if you find your way back!
