I like nice clean design of this entry. Great use of tiles for the base, and I love the SNOT smooth rounded tile cobblestones. That's a nice palm tree, too--not made of the standard palm tree pieces. Is that a technice tube inside holding it together?
The obviously ignorant guards add some humor to this scene, which is always good, in my opinion.
Other people have said that it's not gruesome or violent enough, but I disagree. Too many people have focused on the violent aspect of this contest rather than simple pillaging. If I was a pirate, my goal would be to get in, get the loot, and get out, with as little violence as possible. Because violence leads to injuries, which leads to death. Not to mention it's such a hassle to have to impale someone when you'd be perfectly happy to just take their money and run!
There's only one thing that I would change on this MOC, and that's the position of the soilder with the sword behind the door. From the first picture, you can't tell he's there. Seems like there's a mystery dagger floating in midair. I would put him more in the doorway, so we can see him better.
Nice entry overall!
You are very right, I personally think that having red tiles represent blood, makes the scene very messy and not the best moc. However I'd love it if someone at least died in this scene.

IMHO it is quite clear the cruelty of this MOC is ENOUGH to compete with the PTV contest.
You know, P
I think it was Bonaparte who demanded plundering, murdering and raping, but if we were to follow that sick minded person
(who has sometimes great idea's though
) in every occasion, we would all end up being butt-naked while burning down the Megablock HQ, shouting: "THERE IS ONLY ONE TRUE BRICK: THE LEGO BRICK"...
Ha! Ha! Ha!
