So. Growing weary of not knowing exactly how the Academy is laid out, I decided to dig up my oooooolllllddddddd sketch and start working on a floorplan.
This is what I have so far: http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b383/Ard.../AcademyWIP.jpg
SOME NOTES: This is just the GROUND FLOOR. There are many floors above it. Part of the empty white space will house the candidates and other stuff, but I need to figure out whats in these giant spaces.
The second floor will house the Hatching Grounds, which are set in the middle of a huge rooftop terraced garden. Two huge ramps will lead up to it from the outside, as well and basically the main body of the academy will grow upward in increasingly smaller layers. The second level will be reachable by two ramps on either protruding half-circle so that there are more spaces for earth dragons, too.
Anyway, I just wanted to get everyone's thoughts!
