The brain is fixated on the inspired castle. The throne design gave me hiccups till I chanced upon an image or several: the chair doesn’t need to be one piece. It can be two or lots. So, why not a “backdrop” and “accompaniments”? Would make the setting more regal. Perhaps.
Research included medieval thrones and imperial designs. Fascinating aesthetics.
Minecraft screenshots also showcased creative energy and time. Kudos to the builders. However, the more I looked at these builds, the more disappointed I became at the uniformity. Consequently I stopped looking and turned to castle exteriors.
Good news, though: I have a few designs. Working through a (slow) brainstorming thing right now. And the castle outline needs an expansion. 😛
