Avalonia task 4 : The Restauration of Falahuas ch3

Recommended Posts

Here are the previous episodes of the story :

The Restauration of Falahuas Ch 1

The Restauration of Falahuas Ch 2

After his visit to Erthain and his inspection of the food supplies level, Lord Faladrin discovered the roads to exit the Principality of Falahuas were cut.

Faladrin thought it was really the badest news he could have !

The port was severly hit by the Drows' attack as they came through rocky caves by the sea shore. The city center was badly damaged and the Market place, the city hall, the forum and the residence of the Princes are still in ruins too. It is difficult without the roads merchant trafic to be able to rebuild the city. How cuold the workers will build up some repairs without material supplies ?

He definitively have to form a 'Road Repair Team' made of workers and of warriors to repair the roads and to secure them as well.

As he arrived at the 'Wharf Delight', the old tavern alongside the quays of the Falahuawin river behind the fishery, near the port, Faladrin made his decision, he will supervise the roads repairs and lead the team himself.

The Tavern and Inn is of good standards and had not suffered too much from the attack, so Faladrin and his wife, the Princess Walaheria, decided to move their residence here until the Princes' Residence is rebuilt.

The Princess Walaheria was just finishing preparing herself when Faladrin arrived.

Some street musicians band and acrobats were setting a show just in front of the tavern. Probably some of these traveling groups that were stucked in the city when the port was destroyed, Faladrin thought.

The old Barney, owner of the 'Wharf Delight', welcomed Faladrin :

- Good morning My Lord ! Welcome !

- Good morning Barney. Is Walaheria here ?

- Yes, Sure, she is upstairs.

- Thank you, could you keep me a table and make an announce that I will organise a meeting after lunch where I will hire some valiant workers who are not afraid of going on the forest to make the roads repairs they need !

- Yes Mylord, as you wish.

And Faladrin joined his wife to explain her his plan.

- Hello my love ! Good trip ? How are the food supplies ? Will the citizens starve ? Asked Walaheria.

- Hello ! No, that's fine, the food suppplies are just enough to feed everybody but there is an other problem : The roads have been cut by the Drows when they retreat through the woods.

- Oh ! I see... And without a functional port...

- Yes ! You are guessing well, We are cut from the world, from our allies. But I have a plan : I will lead a little group of workers and warriors to make the repairs and I would like to you to lead the repairs of the port. Are you agree ?

- Yes of course ! It is my duty as a leading Princess.

- Ok ! Great ! I organized a meeting for this afternoon where I'll hire the team.

In the tavern, the meeting begins :

- Alright, thank you all for coming at this meeting ! I see some of the fishers, great ! And some of the merchants, ok ! But you too ? The artists ? you want to work hard on the roads ? Said Faladrin when he saw the leader of the band he saw in front of the tavern the morning.

- Yes of course Mylord ! Said the lady leader of the performing troupe. We are stucked in the city. Don't take offense, but it is not our way of life, we want to travel and perform our show elsewhere. So, what is the best for us to help and repair those roads !

- Alright ! Every help is welcome ! I am hiring you too. Ok ! Now the team is complete ! Lets get to work !

And Faladrin organised the roles of everyone, the plans of the bridge, the positions to reinforced by building new surveillance towers and the many details needed for such endeavor.

With this build I am claiming Some of the Task 4 building for the city of Falahuas, Capital of the Principality of the same name.

I'd like to claim :

- Hospitality -Food and Beverage : Tavern (first flour) :

Entertainers : Performing troupe :

Thank you for reading my story.

I know it is a bit long but the building was inspiring me when I built it so I felt I had to make more. So I added a removable second flour to add the Inn part of the building.

The performing troupe made its own way when I prepared the minifigs to illustrate the front of the Tavern/Inn of the Wharf Delight.

Hoping you like it. Thank you for C&C.

Thank you very much ! The entertainers made their way in my mind really fast when I decided to crowd the quay street. I didn't have any music instrument in my collection so I had to build some, I thought at it a bit and... POP ! Here they were ! I made them relatively fast for my first try to design music instruments.

It is nice to see this little troupe is well welcome. Thank you again.

Nice seeing Falahuas growing and starting to recover from the wars!

I like the inn - there are a lot of nice details, such as the dockside, the round window and the interior.

A suggestion would be to use a few less colour, to get a more harmonic colourscheme.

Great scene overall! I like the life in the build in general and the performers in particular!
