Below is the wiki entry for the existing iteration of Gulltown completed by DutchGuard in 2012. Gulltown is being redone as part of the Southeastern Vale Megabuild.
Gulltown is a major port city in the Vale of Arryn, and the fourth largest city in Westeros. The walled city is tucked away in a bay south of Runestone on the Bay of Crabs. The secluded city is defended by tunnels through the mountains on its northern side. The city contains the seat of House Grafton, the Lords of Gulltown, whose sigil is a burning tower in yellow, within a black pile, upon flaming red, but also a cadet branch of House Arryn, who also reside in the city. House Shett formerly lived in Gulltown, but now reside in the Gull Tower on the eastern tip of the peninsula. During Robert's Rebellion, House Grafton remained loyal to the Targaryens, and only after the Battle of Gulltown, did Robert gain the full support of the Vale. House Arryn of Gulltown is a rich cadet branch that chose to marry merchants, and although they are wealthy are looked down upon by the other Arryns.
Note: In a future redo, House Shett of Gulltower and House Shett of Gulltown will be need to be included in the project.
Gulltown was constructed in Summer 2013 and was continued though January 2014. DutchGuard led the server build, which included the extensive Grafton Keep, the Arryn's manorhouse, the septs and septrys, as well as the complex tunnels, walls, and defenses of the city.
The terrain inspired the layout of Gulltown, which is terraced and connected by roads leading through natural arches and tunnels throughout the city. The picturesque city was partially inspired by Dover, England, which has tall white cliffs with various buildings built into the terrain and piers with lighthouses.
The Gulltown server build was notorious for its lightheartedness and is likely the source of the WesterosCraft Catchphrase "Ay up!", the use of custom heads, several "pool parties," and also the "Gullywood Sign."
Gulltown was featured in a timelapse video.
