Everyone needs a place to keep their most dastardly criminals. Such a place is Bleyvern Dungeons. Many feet under ground, on a remote mountainside, and only accessible by a single manually operated lift, it is no easy place to get out of.
About this creation
The lift is fully functional, and obviously capable of reaching all the levels. There is also a counter wait in a separate chute on the opposite end of the chain. That, combined with the lift man's leverage with the driving poles, makes it physically capable to raise the lift, even with several hundred pounds in it.
It's a maximum security prison. Hence the reason it's way up in the mountains and way under ground.

The cool little rock path to get up to the watchtower.
Yes, if you were at Brickworld 2012 you may have seen this...
Very nice! Lots of details and lots of features. The amount of raw "Build" to this thing is pretty impressive. I mean it is one big chunk of rock, and you carefully and deliberately controlled the texture of the stone on every exposed surface. Very "Rocky" looking. Natural. I like the elevator, but it seems like a pretty massive mechanism where a seat on a rope would also have sufficed. I like the tower, but I think it's a mistake (the kings mistake, not yours). The tower would mark the location of the dungeon. Something for a prisoners buddies to use as a landmark when they come to bust him out. But that is narrative. the build is great. Attack!
