    Grian should make the back of the base like a boat leaving the cave for some reason the back of the base looks like a boat shape to me

  • Mr_H

    I wonder how long is a long time concerning trips for Grian. Cause I've heard travel is alot shorter in the UK than in the U.S due to sheer landmass differences. I can travel for 3 hours on the road and barely get anywhere in Texas. It's a massive state. xD
