I was able to create ruins somewhat using angled rectangles to form
"walls" (ie, a city wall) and then using a few fractal polygons and
subtracting out sections to basically create a crumbled city wall (this
is for an overland map, so is an offset overhead "3D" perspective).
The problem came when I was trying to take an existing symbol (one of
the towers) and subtract out a jagged part of the top of the symbol.

Nothing happens when I try to subtract as is. I then exploded the
symbol and tried, but this did the subtraction, but turned the new
result black! Any help would be appreciated, as I would prefer not to
have to "build" the ruins from scratch if I can avoid it.
