Welcome to the Castillo de Gnomoca. My third Big building Project. Rox. Governor and Master Mason and his council are pleased to receive you in the castle the King had the good will of entrusting them to build.General view of the castleCellar and Moat defences
The moat defences include the counter-mine gallery and firing holes to shoot at assaulting infantry. Melee troops can also reach the moat through a hidden passage under the entrance bridge.
The chapel can be found on this level, under the main building. There are also the vaults, underground farms, cistern for the well and underground lake, this works as a water reservoir and extra defence for the eastern Wall.Main Level
Workshops, farms and Great Hall (comedor) with the hospital and dormitory.
The main feature besides the Great Hall is the central court with the garden and pool. This is a place of great beauty where gnomes love to spend their free hours when it's sunny. They also grow herbs and spices in this garden for cooking and medical use.
They took this garden tradition from people that came to their land from the south. The gnomes found it amazing and soon started to create their own. But close to the cantina (Great Hall) to provide themselves with drinks during the hot hours of the day. The water plays an important role in this design.First Floor
This floor contains mainly stockpiles. The arcade around the garden can be appreciated on this level. The work of the Alarifes (southern brick workers) is most patent there.Second Floor
Most of the rooms for the gnomes are located on this floor. In the southern wing are the Bedchambers for Rox, Castellano and Maestro Constructor (Governor and Master Mason) and his Concejo (council) formed by his closest companions and advisors.
The Great tower to the southwest is the military tower. Armories, training grounds and barracks for the soldiers can be found there. Viona, Maestre de campo (high captain of the castle) and Binid Sargento Mayor (Second in command) have their rooms there.Third Floor
Here is the Sala del concejo (council room) were the Castellano and his council meet.
Additional rooms are prepared on this floor should refugees or king's troops need to be stationed in the castle. Goblin invasions are frequent. The castle can hold up twice its current population of 62.Chapel and Vaults
Gnomes from Gnomoca are deeply religious and this is an important hub of their comunity. Religious icons can be seen throughout the whole castle.
The rooms to the sides of the Capilla (chapel) are the vaults where the wealth of the castle is stored.
The ammo depot can be seen on the top right corner. It is placed under the Gate House but outside the main building should an accident happen.Central Gardens and Great Hall
Nice view of the gardens the gnomes love so much.The Gate House
Heavily reinforced and defended, the gate is protected by two towers. The angled access bridge prevents the invaders from using large rams or charging straigth through it.
The design of the Gate house is becoming obsolete, but its sturdy construction still allows it to hold again besiegers.
Gate house interior
Shooting Gallery with a maze-like corridor full of traps that scatters the invaders. Currently up to a third of a goblin invasion force can die here before even reaching the melee troops (7-9 out of 30, two headed and goblins) And those who pass through often do it scattered, unarmed, unarmoured and bleeding.
Thank you for coming to visit our castle. Please don't leave without sampling the legendary food and drinks from our kitchen and brewery. And take a little time to see the leather workshop. Its masterful crafts are famous kingdom wide.
