Have you ever heard of the proverb or idiom, "All roads lead to Rome"? Well, folks used to mean it literally too, as the Romans had built more than 250,000 miles of roads to carry trade and troops across their once mighty empire. Here, on Als2417's FarmVille farm, it's clear that all roads lead to Count Duckula's Castle.

This incredible farm, which seems to be divided into five to six separate provinces, has the Count Duckula Castle at its heart. To the north is a fairy town that appears to be populated by fairy land and Lady Gaga items ruled by the King Castle (from the English Countryside event). Northeast of the castle, you've got the snowy peaks of last summer's Swiss Alps. To the west (where you can see a Dutch Windmill and three tall Candy Corn Trees) is a small, bustling town full of warm autumn colors, where even the buildings have brown to orange roofs. The ones with the darkest brown roofs -- Flower Cafe, German Home, and Clock Tower 2 -- are from the Germany event. Bordering the Germany town is a train and railroad tracks from the Wild West event. Below that, you'll find a fully built Haunted Mansion from last year's Halloween, including this year's Kraken Lake. And when you round that bend, you'll find an entire line of farm animals and what appear to be gnomes, lined up to the castle, possibly there to bring tribute to their quacking, blood-sucking feathered lord.

Did you know that "Count Duckula" is also the name of a 1980s British cartoon series?
