In this kingdom, every winter a war begun.

I wanted to create certain effects, flames, smoke, floor, the door and wall that is frozen,.... and an explosion, it is my passion. I perhaps overstated the amount of this effects.

I hope you like it, however,I wanted to create a small moment, the first defense of the castle from the attack.
