Fountain of Wisdom
Posted 19 February 2012 - 09:45 PM
The embassy I built is located in a backyard somewhere in the midst of the great city of Albion.
This is a story about the 'Fountain of Wisdom' with which I was travelling through the lands of Avalonia.
The animals in my caravan were fully packed and had to carry a heavy burden. This is because I knew that the building materials in Avalonia were limited to stone and wood. How primitive!
Although cold and wet, the land of Avalonia is beautiful. The people are welcoming and helpful. Their manners, however, are a bit rude. They like to fight and do not wash their hands before dinner.
They have cosy homes and their leisure time is filled with drinking, eating, and burping. What else is there to life?
Elementary calculus, reading comprehension, and writing skills are the foundation of civilization. This is the gift from the people of Kaliphlin in order to support international understanding: education.
In the tent of education all pupils are welcome. Knights and servants, women and men, young and old ... but not all can appreciate the blessing of wisdom (as you see, sometimes I have to scold).

PS: The inhabitants of the household thank Rasputin Jone for the glass windows I brought with me. They really need our southern luxury since it becomes freezing in the nights!

Don't teach them the very difficult maths and sciences, that's for Kaliphlins only
But it's maybe good to teach them how to read and spell Maybe now they will be able to read my letters and I will have the chance to see my 2 lost scouts again
It are really beautiful Albion buildings as well, but I have to disappoint you, Avalonians are difficult people and those houses will never be a part of Albion I fear

And Albion is a large city with two sections, the "Inter Sanctum" and "the Wall". Only the Inter Sactum of Albion is off limits but the Wall is open.

I would suggest that this will be an excellent free build, even if a bit too late to be an embassy

Great MOC, I love the idea! Very different than what many had in mind, and that makes it a great addition to our powerful Foreign Ministry. I really like the furniture!
