Keep for a walled castle
About this creation
While most people think of castles as large fortified buildings, some are no more than a long enclosing wall with buildings and towers built into the wall at irregular intervals. This keep is designed to be built into such an enclosing wall fortification.

More pictures of the keep and enclosing wall sections.
