    Default Aeonar - Deepwood

    I've wanted to build something like this for a very long time, but just recently got the right type of items to do it. It's a prison tower heavily inspired by Dragon Age: Origins. In DA:O Aeonar is the mages' prison in Ferelden. Not much is really known by the players of what it looks like, so I mixed descriptions of it with the Circle Tower also in that game, and came up with what's below. I'm really proud of the outside.. not so much by the inside, but it's still a work in progress and not bad for a couple days work I don't think.

    I'd greatly appreciate any feedback, suggestions of what to change, add, remove, etc., and info on things misaligned.

    Here are a couple screenshots of some of the floors and the outside.

    It looks like it's leaning in the pic, but it's not in game.. I hope..

    Oh no I did tear it down, but I rebuilt it because I figured out the alignment issue, and completing the project was more important to me than the ramp issue in the end.

    I started building it up again late at night on the same day lol; I missed it.

    Yeah this is awesome. It looks just like the pics and is really refreshing to see something so very modern looking. Great job on the exterior!

    Thank you all. I'm gonna spend a bit refining the interior, especially the prison part. If anyone has suggestions for items I would greatly appreciate it. Next to all the shiny marble and arches the bent iron fences look really weird.

    Looks awesome! Suggest swapping out the marble just inside the cells for something coarser that will blend better with the iron. Prisoners don't usually get marble and luxury.

    Maybe the long workbench from fishing or I think there is another one from the store.

    I tried replacing it with stone.. not sure if it turned out any better. I think a large part of the problem is the gates themselves, but I can't find any other item that does the job. I tried building some myself out of building blocks, but it ends up looking kind of cheap when you're coming in from the outside. And I don't think I'll ever get enough work benches to cover all 3 floors.

    Here's a screenshot of one of the prisons with stone floor.

    Granite makes a good contrast against the marble, and it has a rough texture that I would imagine (just an opinion) would help provide the perfect interior setting for a prison cell. More, it doesn't provide a harsh clash against the marble.
