Player name(s): Soap, Guan

Player rank: Builder+

Private or Public: Public

Location name: Grimslade

Lore:
Grimslade was the ancestral home of Grimbold, a lesser Marshal of the Mark. Nothing is known of the location of this structure other that it stood in the Westfold of Rohan. The word “slade” seems to imply that the house was either in a clearing or on a hillside.

Overhead plan:
Blue= Middle class
Yellow = Low-middle class
Grey = Low class
Red = Pallisade or watchtower
Light grey = Utility buildings (stables, barns etc…)
Brown = Garden walls (either stone or wooden fences doesn’t matter)

In-game guide:
No real guide yet, but will i’ll be sure to make one similar to my dwarfguide, tho maybe more simplified.
Here are some concept pics:

Terrain:
The only change i want to make is turning one of the fields into a pasture for horses.

Reference Imagery:

Anything i missed?

Some extra stuff…
I want to have a leather tanner a bit outside of the pallisade along the road that leads to the logging area nearby.
I also want a charcoal burner in the forest along the stream somewhere nearby.

Also:

And finally, it would be nice if the nearby westfold village 2 had a brewery.

Looks good to me. Are you going to do it in sections? and are you going to make a guide?


#4

@Kemce says it’s good with him, and I agree.

@Guan as long as you answer Ori’s questions, consider this in progress!


#5

I already stated in the OP that there will be a guide.
As for sections, i might split the village i half i suppose, but it’s really not that large.


#6

ah yeah. sorry, I missed that bit of text. Good luck


#7

This project is now open to public! There are a total of 15 houses to be completed, and three large barns.
Now first i want all the middle, and low-middle class houses to be completed before moving onto the lowest class buildings.

Make sure to finish the garden along with the house, and the garden shed if it has one.
Most of the workplaces for professions should be outside if possible.

Also be sure to look at the “guide” i made right outside the northern entrance for more information.
There are three example houses aswell, one for each “class”.


#8

So for graves and stuff… Should they all be burial mounds or are regular gravestones also good?

Idk about book references specifically, but ‘ere ye’ go

After a quick start with a lot of progress and a few lazy weeks after we can finally call Grimslade done. Thanks a lot to everyone who has helped us building this unique and cool village!
