    Notice the head of "a victim" on the pentagram. This is the chamber for TDL's guild meetings. The thrones are for each member of the Shadow Council. The benches are for the common members. I was going to add brains and hearts and stuff, but for whatever reason you cannot chop up body parts to acquire them. If that changes I will update the pictures

    I'm submitting this for the "Single Room Category"

    Please only Judge the main room with the benches and blood fountains.

    I submit the main room of my fort to the single room category... Wu's Tavern! We have a full bar (with a beer cooler), pool, darts, horseshoes, and an extensive library. Also, for the fowl enthusiast, we have a cock fighting pit, fully equipped! Thank you for your consideration!

    This is my entry for the medium house category :
    I wanted to show you can have a smaller home, and still have functionality, room and a lovely home. I also tried to stay within the natural color scheme of the sandstone house.
    The stand for the roasted pig are regular logs, turned at two different angles.



    For the main room and patio I wanted to incorporate items from the 3 holidays. Xmas: the plant. Halloween: the tall candle. Thanksgiving: Turkey feathers.
    The candelabra stand are fire horns. On the patio, the base for the checker board are turned bronze ingots. Same ingot for the key holder next to front door.
    The most unique decorating item used, I believe are the parade of turkey feathers used to add
    design to the patio wall.

    Hope you all enjoy: Westra

    I'm usually terrible at these things, but I figure why not give it a shot :)

    The idea for the last one was Santa crashing into someone's house.

    Updated with one addition, thanks Gideon!

    That Santa + Sleigh is amazing. You should put it as best unique design element to be honest. Good job everybody they all look great. :)

    Since its a 3 person town so to speak, in lue of movable prizes may I suggest some tiny encompassing walls, or perhaps a mote.
