    Castle Black elevator

    An old college prank. At one of the universities in Alabama longtime ago in the 1970s there used to be a massive wooden 20 ft tall 10 ft wide rocking chair that weighed about 2 tons on campus built by architecture students 10 years prior. In the 1970s the fraternities on that campus had a bet...

    Castle Black elevator

    Hmmm... that's 10 Kit Harrington's weighing in at roughly 150 pounds each and 4 barrels of gravel each weighing roughly 70 pounds which totals roughly 1780 pounds, almost 1 ton. We're prolly looking at a fairly sophisticated combination of the Treadwheel crane and Brunelleschi's 360 degree...

    The Arbor: Applications thread

    So I don't know where to drop this, but I found this nicely detailed treatise from the 1400s on shipbuilding in the Venetian Arsenal by Michael of Rhodes who worked there, oversaw shipbuilding, and served in the Venetian Guard.

    Eastwatch Project Thread

    Sounds like this area is the ASOIAF equivalent of Codlandia, though Codlandia could be somewhere else in the unknown world, but being the rich fishing ground in all the known world of ASOIAF is pretty much Codlandia in our world. I bet there is Westerosi Cod in the Bay of Seals and from reading...

    Moat Cailin Application

    For this bit here to be answered I feel that I must add an article with research from Historians and History Buffs alike over at the History Stack Exchange. The link here may provide some useful information in regards to the construction and fortification of certain areas in swamps and wetlands...

    Project Application: House Norcross of Norcross by IronGiant

    I've been in talks with AeksioOndos and I've decided to go back to Darkdell. I just wonder if some of my builds or ideas could be used for a new Norcross if it ever be built.

    Project Application: House Norcross of Norcross by IronGiant

    I apologize for the late reply. Family matters kept me busy for some time and seemingly will keep me busy further, unless some thing changes. I do remember where I read it, however, it really wouldn't be an actual quote. Rather it would be a map that I read and that map being from The Lands of...

    Block Change Request: Will-o'-the-wisp

    As a flame, Which oft, they say, some evil Spirit attends, Hovering and blazing with delusive light, Misleads the amazed night-wanderer from his way To bogs and mires, and oft through pond or pool; There swallowed up and lost, from succour far. -Poem from some old book in my Granny's Library...

    I've some suggestions for the war camp. I would suggest to the commander of this detachment (from the larger Lannister force at Harrenhal) that it be best not to position his main camp so close to the besieged castle and a bit farther back, closer to the creek or even on the other side of it...

Though the test is still saved on my plot. Seeing as it is still untouched, I may...
