    So a strategic geographic location that a force has to move through to get to a specific location, so lets say like the only crossing of a river is over this single bridge. Thats a choke point because there are no other options to cross the river. I guess its a millitary term in this sense, but dont let it limit you, it could be everything from a huge gateway in a wall that an army needs to pass through which is heavily fortified to a valley that tanks need to roll through, or like a corridor on a spaceship, that the crew can easily trap the alien infestation at. enjoy and be creative.

    thanks for the blurb, Redrook. I looked the word up in LEO (english-german) dictionary but choke point is something in plant mechanic...

    maybe strait is a better word...

    But the topic is great. I exspect a lot of fine entries this time

    I would do this one, and still might, but i don't know if i will have the time as doing the C.O.W. Wish you could line up all the drawoffs so they start and finish at the same time.

    Here is my entry.
    A photoshop crash means I have done this twice! SAVESAVESAVESAVE!!!
    E.O.W Round 23: Strategic Choke Point
    Narrowdell.
    The Yarinian mountains are a band of peaks dividing the great rolling lands of the Trolldyke. The people of Littleton use its cavernous ravines as a bolt hole when enemies threaten thier peaceful contemplation, as they often do as they are a prosperous people, blessed with fine lands and finer women.
    Narrowdell is one such bolt hole. It nestles within a ravine, the entrance of which is narrow and easily defended. With caverns running through the surrounding cliffs complete with thier water stills and fungus farms, the folk of Littleton have made a home away from home at Narrowdell.

    speculart-- weird integration of photo and drawing.. Im not sure it's totally making sense. Initially it looks cool and then it kinda dissolves into not-sense. I dunno.. something about the perspective is making me un-comfortable... can't quite put my finger on it... take another good hard look at this in an analytical mode,, maybe you can solve it.
    good luck
