    Construction

    The project was started the 02/04/2015 by xKrillen43x and Bearic Royce. It is speculated that they abandoned it sometime in 2015 or 2016, though the exact date has been lost in the mists of history. Johan picked it up the 16/05/2020. The project was about 60-70% finished but it had outdated in the five-year gap where it had been abandoned. That meant Johan had to update the already finished parts and reorganize the planning of the castle to fit new server standards.

    Of notable help was that of JakeTheSnake who helped with many of the countless small task there is while updating an older build, and with the struggles of a snowy build. Also, of a great help was Endymion who renovated the hall from the old one left by the 2015 leads. Meanwhile Viserys made the ruined stairs to the top of the wall.
