  • You're awesome, Hoohill.
  • I don't know how you do it but your detication to your passion is inspiring.
  • How are you always finding so many epic fortresses? Shopping around for your evil lair, Hoohill?
  • I already have the perfect evil lair. I live inside of an Elephant. My lair is thus both well hidden and mobile. The only downsides are that one must build up an immunity to the stomach acids and not be afraid of tight spaces.
  • But a good one
  • Man I would love to visit this place! Maybe even live there for a little bit.
  • Keep doing what you're doing, these posts are great!
  • This place is beautiful! Thank you very much for sharing this.
  • so it's essentially the real world version of The Eyrie from Game Of Thrones? sweet
  • The Eyrie sits on a mountain named Giant's Lance and it is the smallest great castle in the realm. This castle is more similar to Casterly Rock.
  • i was thinking more like it's up really high on cliffs, very difficult to attack and you have to pass through multiple gates on the way up, but ok.
  • To be fair, he is right. So you have a better idea: fan art of Casterly Rock vs. art of the Eyrie . Also, starting to recognize names ( /u/BastardOfNightsong ) outside of /r/asoiaf ...don't know how to feel.
  • Imagine the secret passageways in this place...
  • This castle was featured in one of the Sharpe books. Great battle between the English and Indian warlords. Book was called Sharpes Fortress
  • As in: "Zero was the number of f--ks given by its defenders." Great pictures.
  • Props to actually sourcing your images.
  • Great work on the castlesporn. I love it. Dead wrong on the invention of zero. Mayans had it prior & (just learned this) the Babylonians http://www.mediatinker.com/blog/archives/008821.html
