Here ís my idea of the way to fill the exchequer of Avalonia without enslaving the population.

Every ship has to pay custom dutys for the Avalonia navigable waterways. In this little fortress is the first sample and when the new taxes working, there will be more custumshouses on the waterways.

Looking good! Like the gate into the mountain side! Your minifigs posing is very nice!

Cannons in Historica is very unstable so you might consider to put it away to avoid damages on your soldiers and the fortress  :wink:

Dusting your lego would also be a good idea  :classic:

The roof seems a bit strange all in all it's a very nice little fortress!

When did you build this? A handful of years ago?
It's more dusty than anything in my home :sick:

We do need some $$ and we do have lots of water...

How are we going to tax at the customs stations?

A cannon, medieval times.....cannon was very rare...are we doing early or late period ? :look:

The Avalonia Trading Company has a lot of trading vessels on the water...
I see the profits going to dust with the new taxes! :tongue:

The Avalonia Trading Company demands a refund! :angry: :laugh:

@ all: Yes this moc stood a very long time in the regal(I build this 3 years ago for a pirate-countryside :jollyroger: ) and I forgot to dusting before taking the photos. Sorry, sorry.  :blush:

I saw cannons by the other guilds so I though we need some too. We can't allow us a residue, and while this is a experiment, the first taxes fortress on the waterways, so I can use this "new" technology as a prototype.

There is a blockade in the river, so the boats have to stop and come with a small ship's boat to the fortress or the customer officer come with some bodyguards on a small boat to bigger ships with a fix prize list for the boats and the commodities and after this list the bargainer have to pay.

I like the concept and fun of having ships try to sneak by (I know I would)

But I curious why you revived this 3yr moc? One of the reasons to create the guilds was to try to inspire people to get excited about building again. So why not take the skills you have aquired in the last three years and build an even better customs house (with less dust! Lol)

I look forward to you update!
