[ESL - FB 4] : Apple Trees Orchard near Elysabethtown, Berelli

Recommended Posts

It is my 4th Free build this month, so don't hesitate to approve it if you like it. Thank you !

Apple Trees Orchard near Elysabethtown, Berelli

Once they reached Berelli and met the tribe of the Ténotclaxcans, Felipe and Basil headed through the jungle to the main village of the natives : Zum'heria.

But what was their surprise when they discovered that Lady Elysabeth of Drondil and her husband, Lord Matteus Tomvaximus, leaders and friends of the MAESTRO Company, were already at work near that village by building a new Colony for Eslandola and for the King !

The occasion was too great for Felipe ! He must have changed the jungle around by planting Apples !

So he ordered to transplant some apple trees and replace the costal forest near Elysabethtown by them !

His men worked hard to cut the jungle, dig the holes and plant the young trees Basil and Felipe managed to bring from Nelissa to Berelli !

Once the orchard ready, Pinya, the young daughter of the high priestess of the Ténotclaxcans, came with an escort to see what those men from the west were doing.

Basil explained to her how they managed to bring young apple trees in some barrels in order to transplant them, and how soon there will be grown and ready to produce delicious apples for everyone !

- That is great job, man of the west. Said Pinya, but be careful with the jungle ! The trees of the forest don't really like to be cut and be replaced by other trees... There are some terrible things that could happen here !

- Ahah ! What ?! What can a tree could do against me ! Laughed Basil.

- I don't know. Answered Pinya. But be careful...

So, here is the First attempt to develop Berelli !

I tryed to show the very first plantation being settled, as Berelli is a totally new and free territory !

So I had to show how the men are cuting the jungle, first, and after that, I managed to show the orchard with young trees.

I know it could be non-sense to bring apple trees in the rain forest, but... It's the madness of my 2 characters that leading them to such an absurd idea !

I am claiming this small orchard as my free license property for MAESTRO, for Eslandola and for the King ! Ah... and for Apples !

Hoping you like this. C&C are always welcome.

Nice little plantation, Faladrin. Showing the process from clearing the forest to planting the trees is a really nice touch, and I like the feel of developing the frontier in this build! pirate_blush.gif The little raft is nice too, and I am really wondering if the native warning is a matter of myth, or if the rainforest actually will fight back... pirate_laugh_new.gif

One question, though - who built the small wall and for what purpose? Or is that part of the plantation?

I approve!

Thank you all !

Who will know what the natives are saying is legend or truth...

A little hint for the upcoming : Thou, corries, shall help Basil to know !

And yes the little wall is part of the plantation, I thought I had to mark more the limit between the orchard and the rain forest.

It warms my heart to see the jungle wasteland being whacked down and turned into something useful and productive.

Har har. I had to insert a little modern-day sarcasm. So sue me.

In all seriousness this is a fine scene. The various trees make a good backdrop to the beach, and the barrels with young apple trees are a great idea. I like the progression from water to sand to grass - it's too compressed to be realistic but it accomodates the scene well without requiring a huge base. The raft is nice and it's good to see you reusing those highly recognizable natives of yours. You've really taken off with this apple story - which is unique and not something I ever would've imagined in the Pirates forum until now.

Good work.

I approve.

Nice! Cleaning up the jungle and replacing the trees with the ones from your boat is nicely done :thumbup:

Great job depicting the process of colonizing the wilderness on that island! :classic:

At this stage in history, that is what seems more likely than large well-established plantations.
