Maybe I have just grown up with too much American TV, but when I think of a fort, I think of a small log barricade to keep the “Indian’s” out. These ones are huges, and keep the Indian’s in.
Over the couple of weeks I have seen some amazing forts (as they are called in India), which I would be calling castles (don’t get me started on the Palaces… especially my dinner in one the other night).
The one in Jaiselmier is still inhabited, 45 generations down the track, there are still 4,000 people living in the fort. The fort in Jaipur holds the largest cannon on wheels, which could shoot a cannon ball 35km (and took 2,200 elephants to pull into place in the fort)
Anyway, in lieu of anything worthwhile from a Warcraft point of view, here are a few shots of forts (I will stick with one for now).
The fort in Jodpur
Another shot of the fort from another hotel we stayed in… yes, both at the foot of the fort.
and just in case you were thinking it would be easy to scale those walls, try it from this angle.
On a final note, let me assure you that Gnomes can not wield 2 handed weapons… not that they need to, I have seem some pretty deadly contraptions here.
Anyway… get back to that FrostFiring… and I will head off to more palaces and soon a bit of backwater relaxation down Kerala way.
