G is for Great Gate




The Great Gate is a fortress in and of itself. With two sets of massive 20 foot-wide doors, the gate is wide enough to allow 4 ox carts to pass through abreast. Perhaps the gate serves as the entryway to a grand city. Perhaps it sits astride a narrow mountain pass, tasked with holding back the barbarian hordes. Wherever you may need a really big door, the Great Gate is there.

This map uses two different cutaway levels. The upper part of the map shows a bird's-eye view of the defenses on the roof of the gate. The lower half shows a cutaway of the gate's interior.

    1. That is an excellent question! Probably longer than it should for an A to Z post... Maybe 2 hours?
