18969056375_9d110e6306_t.jpg This is Guy Wynd, pilot. Do you read me, Dr. Danielle?

18348257833_69a18106fa_t.jpg Loud and clear Guy. What's the status?

18969056375_9d110e6306_t.jpg Incoming on E01. Yellow rocks, red landscape. Preparing to land.

18348257833_69a18106fa_t.jpg Copy that. Are you able to get any samples?

18969056375_9d110e6306_t.jpg Samples? I don't like the sound of that. Last time I was asked to bring back a sliver of this massive transforming vicious alien creature...

18348257833_69a18106fa_t.jpg Yeah, I remember that actually. My assistant was claiming you brought back pure rock.

18969056375_9d110e6306_t.jpg What's that? Nevermind, I'm landing.

18782836289_e3e4810d0c.jpg

18348257833_69a18106fa_t.jpg Okay... *Hello, this is Octan cleaning services, how would you like your laundry today* Oh, brother. Talking Laundry machines. What's next?

18969056375_9d110e6306_t.jpg Excuse me? I didn't catch that.

18348257833_69a18106fa_t.jpg Yes, er, I was saying, this time you need to get a sample.

18969056375_9d110e6306_t.jpg And then something about talking?

18348257833_69a18106fa_t.jpg Yeah, er, *medium wash cold process starting. Please add soap* Augh! Dumb machine! I'm getting the soap!

18942654696_8b9d784d70.jpg

18969056375_9d110e6306_t.jpg What's that? Are you in the Utility room?

18348257833_69a18106fa_t.jpg Yes I am!

18969056375_9d110e6306_t.jpg Oh. Well I'm still waiting for instructions. You are my branch executive you know.

18348257833_69a18106fa_t.jpg I told you to get a... By the way, I had this really good idea...

18969056375_9d110e6306_t.jpg Here we go again.

18348257833_69a18106fa_t.jpg ...that you know what, First Branch Executives really shouldn't have to do their own laundry. I mean, I bet Lord Business and CEO Shmails aren't doing their laundry!

18969056375_9d110e6306_t.jpg Which means you'd like me to...

18348257833_69a18106fa_t.jpg Find a sample! Didn't I say that?

18969056375_9d110e6306_t.jpg Oh. I was hoping for some other sort of instructions.

18942737696_fe39a604b3.jpg

18969056375_9d110e6306_t.jpg Well, as far as I can see the only thing to be had here is a bit of biomass... wait, hold it. There's one of these crystals that looks like it's a little bit differently colored.

18348257833_69a18106fa_t.jpg Get that one.

18969056375_9d110e6306_t.jpg What? It could explode!

18348257833_69a18106fa_t.jpg Get it!

18969056375_9d110e6306_t.jpg I'm approaching... I don't know... are we sure we want to do this? ... Andromeda could go up in smoke... I'm getting closer! ... Are you sure...

18348257833_69a18106fa_t.jpg Yes! I'm s... *beeep beeep machine overload. Please remove some of your laundry. Thank you.* Oh come on, this is Octan! We should have bigger laundry machines! ...have you got the crystal?

18969056375_9d110e6306_t.jpg Um... not yet. I was kinda hoping you'd forget.

18348257833_69a18106fa_t.jpg I don't forget anything... *it would seem you have forgotten the soap. Please add soap.* As I was saying, I don't forget anything science related.

18969056375_9d110e6306_t.jpg Okay, I'm getting closer... getting closer... this could be the end...

18346491774_3f18efc0aa.jpg

18969056375_9d110e6306_t.jpg Dr. Danielle?

18348257833_69a18106fa_t.jpg Well, have you got it yet?

18969056375_9d110e6306_t.jpg Whew. You're still there. You'd better message Farmolis, just to be sure nothing happened on some remote planet.

18348257833_69a18106fa_t.jpg You got the crystal?!

18942687536_b30b69f859.jpg

18969056375_9d110e6306_t.jpg Sure did! Still waiting for it to do something...

18781301058_3ed918e190.jpg

18348257833_69a18106fa_t.jpg Huh. I didn't really expect you to. Looks like just a off colored biomass crystal to me. No need to bring it back if you don't want to.

18969056375_9d110e6306_t.jpg What?! You mean I went through all that mental trauma for... nothing?

18348257833_69a18106fa_t.jpg Most mental trauma is pointless.

18969056375_9d110e6306_t.jpg Thanks for the encouragement.

18348257833_69a18106fa_t.jpg Right-o. And now that you're done with that, I'd like a few samples from Wastyria, Jen's Star and Zimunsk, Arium Major, Lesser Drigo, and I've really been wanting a bit of asteroid dust from the Fascini cluster. Maybe the last one could wait for tomorrow though.

18969056375_9d110e6306_t.jpg Wait... what on... okay, I really am not sure I get this... and you're over there doing laundry?! Man, these executives are sure living it up!

18348257833_69a18106fa_t.jpg Oh yeah, that reminds me. Soap. And don't let me forget about getting the CEO to find someone else to do laundry for us. ...Are you headed for Wastyria yet?

18969056375_9d110e6306_t.jpg *sigh* I really need to move up to branch executive. I'm on my way...

18348257833_69a18106fa_t.jpg Alright! Signing out!

Another shot of the main build.

18348360353_00ce6df0c8.jpg

And an overview of the laundry room!

Well, I think Mantis's awesome showing has been making us all up our game... you guys are really playing it strong!

For scoring purposes, note that this is the same little vehicle I used earlier.

C&C appreciated as always!

Hilarious story, and I like the bright colors of the landscape, they work well together and make it look otherworldly.

The laundry room totally fits the part, too!

HA this is well played out, nice rocks, great colors and adding Dr. Long in was a great tie it. Are you photo editing Dr.long in with Photoshop?

Neat landscape, but the laundry room steals the show for me. Love the use of car doors for a cupboard, and the hamper is great too :thumbup:

There sure is a whole bunch of cool stuff to look at in these two small builds! :sweet:

I think the laundry room kind of steals the show here with all the details it has (the hamper! :oh:) but the landscape is a great MOC too! The dark tan vein is really, nice with the masonry bricks.

Loved the story! I thought the landscape was really well done and the laundry room was fantastic too. I'm glad MANTIS is making us all up our story game.

Haha Kai, you're such an awesome story teller (always been)! But the landscape is pretty cool too! Man am I lucky that I'm in another Octan branch!

Thanks guys for all the comments! I'm really glad my story was such a hit!

HA this is well played out, nice rocks, great colors and adding Dr. Long in was a great tie it. Are you photo editing Dr.long in with Photoshop?

In the first picture, yes. And in the little squares, there too. But a slightly differently dressed version is actually in the laundry room!

Thanks mrcp, I think I stole the dark tan right off David's build... :look::blush:

Ha! This is wonderful! :laugh: the lauded room is my favorite aspect of the build! The brickbuilt Octan logo is an excellent touch! :laugh: the ground on E01 is wonderful too! The reds and yellow rock really contribute to the alien feel.

Also I love how you captured Dr. Long's apathetic behavior towards her employees. She's a busy woman. She can't afford to do her own laundry when there's so much science to be done, paperwork to sign, and expirations to oversee! :laugh:

:laugh_hard: Hahaha, hilarious story! I love how nervous your character is! :grin:

Don't know if you deliberately used old and dirty bricks for the laundry room, but they actually make it seem much more realistic! :thumbup:

Great story, landscape (really love how the colours blend together) and laundry room (cool use of the windows and rubberbands to make a... laundry basket, is it?)! Totally agree that M.A.N.T.I.S. upped the level of storytelling in the game! :laugh:

Haha, that's great! I too am a fan of the laundry room - especially the hamper.

Thanks!

Good, I'm relieved that you liked my portrayal of your character. :laugh: Thank you!

Well, it wasn't exactly deliberate... more like unavoidable... :tongue:

Thanks!

Great builds too :)

Thanks Boxerlego!

Thanks! It works really well, until you get out of sync and start putting the dialogue with the wrong head... :look::tongue:
