Abyssian; perched atop craggy rocks amongst the Moruth Swamplands of Nocturnus, this is a most inhospitable place and home to Lord Ssilyrrlith, current leader of the Nocturnus Guild. He is surrounded by his loyal Reptrians and mystics who use the strange Orion sphere to scrye.


I was looking to create my first full castle build and wanted to achieve a remote, isolated yet claustrophobic feel with many tall spires and towers crammed in together. Hope you guys like the look and feel free to comment and critique.

    Looks pretty cool, a little bit like on a floating rock or like the swamp was acidic.
    How did you get all these cool heads?
    Could you maybe send me a link to a page of the virtualug?

    Its hard to have truly original concepts and looks with castle these days. However, you have done it Josh. Really great stuff!

    Tyler took the words out of my mouth!

    Brilliant! I love the smooth texture of the Swamp in contrast to the jumbled and craggy castle walls.

    "Other kings said I was daft to build a castle in the swamp, but I built it all the same. Just to show 'em!"

    Guss, it sits on top of a upside down baseplate.

    I like to think that the green stuff is grass and there is nothing remotely menacing about this scene.
