Hi there, inhabitants of New Terra,
pretty late, but here goes, presenting my first FB this month:
The 'Royal Shipyards' in Breshaun
With the ever growing demand for new ships in the waters of New Terra the naval yards in mainland Oleon alone cannot keep up.
So some time ago already the 'Office Royal de la Marine' had decided to set up a branch of the 'Royal Shipyards' in the city of Breshaun, providing high-quality shipbuilding and ship maintenance expertise on-site. The compound is flourishing. It's constantly growing in size, and new buildings and installations are being added regularly, obvious proof of Oleon's expanding presence on the waves, as well as Breshaun's increasing importance for the Empire.
Last month I presented a small peripheral facility to you, this time we're visiting the entrance of the 'Royal Shipyards' main compound situated directly at the mouth of Breshaun's harbor.
about: Not much to say about it, could have been larger, but this month was pretty crowded. All is buildable, I'm kind of cool with the way the gate's arch turned out, the rest is rather regular business.
The 'Crown-Wheel-Anchor'TM is the registered emblem of the 'Royal Shipyards'
The architectural style is influenced by buildings I saw in Rochefort, France. It was a fun build, experienting with two colored walls and a SNOTed ceiling, but making the rider hold that letter was a real annoying job
More of this shipyard is likely to follow.
Thanks for watching,
C&C as always very welcome!
Vive le Roi!
Monsieur Roseabeau, your royal patent of nobility has arrived!
Hmm... My what now, Frederick?
Your patent of nobility, Monsieur. You have been knighted in the name of His Majesty, remember? You are a noble Knight of the Realm now.
Does it come with a Lego-Store coupon?
I'm not sure I understand, Monsieur.
Never mind, never mind... Has the Eltina timber convoy arrived yet?
But... Monsieur! Becoming a Knight of the Realm is an outstanding honor!
Hmm... Hmm... Please inform me as soon as that convoy arrives – we are in desperate need of timber! How am I supposed to run this arsenal here without a working timber supply?! Foolish Eltinians never get anything done reliably... Oh, and well, put that patent on the pile of letters over there, I've got work to do now.
Speaking of arrivals, Monsieur, le Monarque will arrive in Breshaun tomorrow.
What now? His Majesty is taking yet another tour des colonies? Or does he want to make sure his nobility patents are handled 'honorably'?
Monsieur, I'm afraid you are mistaken. It's His Majesty's ship-of-the-line le Monarque, not His Majesty himself. Remember, commodore d'Alban is scheduled to meet with you for the presentation of...
Yes, yes, of course, that had slipped my mind. Hmm... means I'll be sitting over these plans for a while longer then. And one last thing, Frederick... for the 928th time... please stop addressing me as Monsieur – we aren't in Granoleon here.
Bien sûr, Monsieur le Chevalier!
This is just a small scene to introduce my new sigfig Corentin Roseabeau, royal naval engineer, architect, and supervisor of the 'Arsenal Royal de la Marine' in Breshaun.
More to come soon
