In case you really need to know who, when, why, how and what for; this may just be the place to learn. Mystical Castle is a fictional place straight from my imagination.It also is the brain energy of me, myself and I. Certainly you can understand if I give you all the secrets of this site, it won't be any fun.
So what I will give you is a little about why this site exists.
For Fun, of course! The county of Greatkill has been a project of mine for more than ten years. I developed the painting of Mystical Castle many years ago and the actual painting hangs in my home. It's original concept was simply that I wanted to try painting a castle, not a known castle but one from my imagination. It has been quite some time since that painting was finished so the details of what went into it are fleeting at best.
Castles have always been something that fascinated me so painting one was a natural process. I have actually painted a couple other castles since Mystical Castle. Also, castles have always been portrayed as musty, damp and dark with dungeons and deep dark places. It is this mystique that inspires Mystical Castle and it's place in Greatkill County.
As you learn about the aspects of the county and the castle you will find that the thoughts I have given above will play a large part in the adventure. The unknown, more than anything else will prevail as you travel though the pages and explore each and every square foot of the county. It's like a mystery novel except you can skip around and look at will and never get lost or read something out of order. There is a story everywhere and information contained on virtually every page so as you explore keep that in mind. Be sure to follow every lead, and every thought as even the least sounding thing could lead you to the castle.
The county was conceived as a place that has everything; coastline, oceans, mountains, forests, valleys, rivers and lakes. The weather is moderate, with four seasons so in the winter the mountains are white with snow and the summers bring on a strange brew of weather and events.
The county is surrounded by counties to the south, the north and the west with the ocean off the east coast. Those surrounding counties will hold clues to the events and stories that unfold. So keep in mind when they are referred too, the information may lead you to the castle.
The key here is that this is a continuing and developing story that expands and strives for unbalance. It will not be easy to find the castle but the rewards will be many hours of frustration, he he!
There is simply no way to approach this effort without looking for the information anywhere you can find it. Always look for conversation between residents, articles and archives from newspapers and general information located on each page specific to locations.
The travelers who come to the county to visit and vacation, mostly teenagers and young people who love the beaches to the north are always uncovering interesting tidbits because they tend to go places they are advised not to go..
In the summer the lakes are always a beehive of activity. Visitors bring campers and RV's while swimming and boating is a favorite activity around all three lakes.
To find Mystical Castle, you will have to pay attention to everything that is shown and said, written and inferred. Don't discount anything you see as it may just lead you to the castle. Whenever you see the coffee cup brewing, follow it's aroma as that will lead you to information that may be important or just gossip. be sure to follow every track.
Have fun and don't get frustrated because there will be a lot of areas that seem to be dead ends but just when you think it is hopeless, that clue will lay in front of you. Make your adventure in Greatkill County fun!
Welcome and enjoy your visit!
