Round Head

 Located within The Imperial Empire is a realm known as Round Head. The name derived from the original state of the land which was a large stone hill.

Seen above, two simple cobblestone turrets were erected to defend from the monsters that exist in survival mode of Minecraft. Once the map was converted to a creative world, where any block can be used and flying is permitted, this very utilitarian design was replaced with a castle.

Below is an aerial shot of the Round Head area. The castle is seen on the right, the glass Tree Palace is at the top, the farm on the left and the long stretch of the rail line cuts across the middle.

The highlight of the farm was the use of wool to create a barn. The barn, rail bridge and Tree Palace were all built in survival mode, which means it took much longer to build and all the resources had to be gathered up rather then having a library of infinite items like in creative mode.

In this view we can see the Roman Bath House on the right of the screen. It was the first structure built using the new creative mode.

This was just a quick overview of one area in The World of Raar. More to follow!
