    Sketch for Falkenstein Castle by Christian Jank, 1883. "Falkenstein was the last project of King Ludwig of Bavaria - the ruins of a medieval castle, west of Neuschwanstein and perched a thousand feet higher on an even more spectacular mountain crag, that he planned to rebuild in mock-Gothic splendour. Though the royal purse was almost empty, the King vexed a succession of Court Architects by rejecting any attempt at practicality or economizing.

    Christian Jank: сoncept for Falkenstein Castle (circa 1883). The project was never realized as Ludwig II, who ordered it in the first place, died in 1886. Jank, who worked predominantly as a theatric scenic painter, also drew the designs that inspired Ludwig's most famous palace, Neuschwanstein Castle.

    This is sorta what Nevermore- the main castle would look like, except the entire structure would be black, and the sky would be ebony/purple/with clouds everywhere and a roaring ocean below. night time all the time. Way up on a mountain somewhere, in an unknown place/location. Magical Fairytale/Heaven for Goths.

Ulfberht Viking sword - Runic Inscription on the "Sword of Kings" in Vikings TV Serie 2. E.10... At the period, quality swords were produced within the Carolingian empire, and if they had any inscriptions on the blade they were in Roman letters like +VLFBERH+T or INGELRII. The weapon is loosely based on gorgeous type D Carolingian swords but it has an unusually long grip and untypical blade construction, the fuller starting at a distance from the guard. The runic inscription on the sword reads:

Known to her contemporaries as "The Pirate Queen of Connaught," this ginger gunslinger raided shipping vessels, battled English armies, conquered castles from rival Irish clans, and once traveled to London just so she could talk shit to Queen Elizabeth in person.
