Engineering Castles

A great little book about all the different kinds of castles that you might want to have in your world. It's a good mix of text and tables. It includes useful information about construction materials and what that might mean to both physical and magickal attackers, and it covers both castles based on the real-world as well as purely fictional principles (for instance, what might a demon lord use to construct a castle?).

A worthwhile read, and not a bad book to have handy at the gaming table for when your players stumble upon a castle that you hadn't planned on.

Engineering Castles

When I read the blurb about the book I thought it would be a worthwhile purchase that could give some interesting fantasy gaming based information and advice about castles and the engineering there in. Something along the lines of "Don't make these stupid mistakes when design and presenting your castle to your players." Something that would help. "The structure of a castle directly effects it's ability to withstand siege but before 30 ft deep walls it's kinda a waste. Don't go overboard." Something interesting and useful.

However, instead what I find is a random castle generator. There is no engineering at all. Nothing but a random castle society and structure generator. Nothing about engineering at all.

It might be useful to someone... but I wouldn't say it's as advertised. Again, it might be something you find useful and it could possibly incite new ideas for castles that you haven't already thought up... But not what I was looking for.
