    Google some concept art and use it as a frame of reference, then use your creative genes to portray something beyond epic proportions.
    - Besides, you know you're bound by obligation to submit an entry, right? >:D

    Same obligation applies to every frequent flyer of the terrain board.

    But does an infernal coutn as a building? =/

    If this was somewhat of Colossus of Rhodos I would understand though, you intend it to be like that I guess?

    For a frame of reference, here are work of arts that could be categorized as world wonders:
    Not sure you quite got the theme right Bramble, but hit me with another W.I.P in which you show some progress and I'll make an official statement about that.
    - Note especially that the world wonder is supposed to be architectural, not a feat of nature.
    Hell no, that would be so cheap >.>

    @Fladdermasken, I believe brambleclaw was making a giant statue of an infernal, a la Colossus of Rhodes.

    Speaking of aliens... here's an early WIP. It's a crashed alien spaceship that gave technology to humans. It's still far from finished...

    Can the wonder be based on a wonder that already exists?

    Examples:

    The Great Wall
    Panama
    Pyramids of Gaza?

    I think that isn't Fictional. So probably no.
