But first, a couple of questions this morning from long-time reader Gerardus Magnus, Bishop Emeritus, who asks: "Will this possibly be used in games such as a fighting withdrawal through the streets on some future gaming event or is this to serve solely as a picturesque backdrop? There is also a second question which has piqued my curiosity: will you ever be doing city walls for this civic grouping, either medieval or Vaubanesque? That would certainly increase your possibilities for using this for more active gaming."
In any case, and in keeping with my North German Hanseatic theme, I'll probably take a crack at a town gate based on Lübeck's Holstentor below since it has always captured my imagination. The gate and, indeed, the now largely gone fortifications that surrounded Lübeck, which was a very prosperous town during its heyday, have an interesting history, and those interested might want to have a read about the subject by clicking here.
