Here are my two entries: the Cap'n's Quarters, and a town scene.

Town Scene: One of the most famous scenes: the pirates dunking the mayor, Carlos. Above, his wife tells him not to talk, so he gets dunked in the well. Also, a pirate is being chased by a broom-weilding lady. Overhead, a pirate drinks. I also added fire to the scene that really lights up! (see pictures)

An Overview:

Dunking:

Fire (lights up)

How the fire lights up:

So that is my entry #1, notice that the fire actually lights up via light brick from the 'dragon creator set'. I knew that peice would come in handy!



Entry #2 Captain's Quarters. Here, a boat would pass by the captain's room, with an elegantly beutiful bed, which is a little messy. The bed has a canopy, and there is also a red drape draped across the front. The captain has a very elegant chadelier overhead, above a dining table, with a golden plate. There is a table with books next to his bed, and hanging on the wall is a treasure map. There are also candles, both near the captains bed, and near the table.

I haven't had a lot of time for this but I quickly put something together...

This is all I've got so if it doesn't meet the requirements then don't use it because I'm not going to add more later.
