Given that a good number of the statements directly referring to the Castle, such as "it never lands", "have Captain Patel scuttle the castle", and "the castle is in flames, and I've lost my hat" have an eschatological character (especially compared to aphorisms common in American English such as "what goes up must come down" and "the bigger they are, the harder they fall") one wonders if the end of Castle Wulfenbach will eventually form a climax to a future volume, act, or indeed, the whole story. (We won't discuss Castle Heterodyne's comments in relation to that last clause, okay?)

  • As a long-time fan of airships, Hy wonder if der Professors hev thought of how much devastation would be caused by zumting zo big falling, in flames or not. Vipe oudt a city, even! Dos dos not sound like zumting Der Baron, a thinking tyrant, vould do... Altgorl 19:54, 17 April 2009 (UTC)
People who support this theory:


If we assume that the Baron's zeppelins that descended on Sturmhalten are roughly analogous in size to actual zeppelins, the best comparison would probably be the Schütte-Lanz SL11 that bombed London in 1916, which was 174m in length. Alternatively, the largest flying machine ever built, the LZ 129 Hindenberg, was 245m in length. Let's be conservative and use the SL11; if we consider this the baseline for the non-castle airships that are always seen as satellites around the Castle, then, well... It's really big.--Necrotas 01:38, February 22, 2010 (UTC)
