-SPOTLIGHT- The Sand Castle



Long before Imperial City was first conceived and when the world was still overrun with zombies and creepers, Talamer begun construction on an outpost in the great eastern desert. That outpost has come to be called The Sand Castle.


Welcome back Crafty Miners to another World of Raar Building Spotlight. Today we explore that same outpost as it now is, a hub in The Imperial Empire rail system.

The Sand Castle was originally constructed as a single tower. It's main purpose was to give Talamer a place to hold up during the long nights and to defend against the various monsters that once existed in the World of Raar. During the day, Talamer would mine the sand from the surrounding desert. The sand was vital to the construction of the nearby Tree Palace which was constructed completely out of glass blocks. Eventually, to widen the scope of defence, Talamer expanded his single tower into a four walled perimeter wall. In the center he created a treed courtyard. He had to use his gardening techniques to create a path from outside of the desert to the courtyard as to encourage grass to grow into the desolation of the desert.


Once the glass Tree Palace was completed, Talamer converted the upper section of the tower into a train station and connected The Sand Castle to the rail system. When glass blocks became readily available, the castle fell into disrepair and was just the end of the line for the trains.




With the construction of the nearby Equestrian Center, The Sand Castle was renovated to expand the upper section of the tower to include a new branch of rail. This new spur added the Equestrian Center to the rail system and allowed The Sand Castle to once again be used as a hub.


We hope you have enjoyed this Spotlight and the history it brings to The World of Raar. Thanks and till we meet again, Happy Crafting!
