Beacon of Ondylion

From Ondylion to Valholl there is a line-up with beacons. This way when Valholl calls for aid, Ondylion will answer! And this way it's way faster than sending a messenger.

These beacons are guarded by Elon Chorians men. With every beacon comes at least three guards and a wolf. Those wolfs will notice anyone who comes near the beacon uninvited. And if the beacon really  is in danger there is a bell. So they can sound the alarm and there will be support in no-time! (yes it's based on lotr :wink:)

How does the beacon works: Pile of wood with above that a basket filled with oil. Above the basket is a small fire. If the beacon should be lit, just cut done the rope and there will be a huge fire.

Actually it is not (only) based on lotr. It is based mainly on the beacons of the tibetan monks. (and also in ancient china)
Very clever and clean build indeed!

I thought it was based on my Mt Agnathka watchtower :tongue:

But seriously, really nice job with this. I like the way the pathway turned out.  The tree branches on their sides make realistic bushes. And that little campfire is great!

Strangely, the thing I love about this build is all the studs that are showing. :thumbup: They seem to provide a great texture for the harsh Mitgardian environment.

Lovely architecture and that's a great idea about how the fire is started! The only thing is...it's a bit small is it not? Other than that, fantastic work!  :thumbup:

Maybe it does feel a bit small. But it isn't that much smaller than the ones from the lotr! movie! :classic:

Such a beautiful little build! Perfect balance of economy and detail.  :thumbup: I love the triple corner columns with the diamond ornamentation at the top, and the wooden circlets on the roof. The bell with the steps is a lovely touch too. Great stuff!  :classic:
