To my esteemed cousin, Henrique Navarrez, First Mate of the EMS Gallant

Dear cousin,

I write this with eyes sore and bleary from copying, and truly, I am tempted to envy you your free and active life on the high seas. I am here penned up in a tiny academy, learning the rudiments of the science of cartography, and in my spare time doing a bit of copyist work, in return for which I bed and board gratis. The life of an academician may be a secure one, but I dearly wish that my parents will one day repent themselves of their decision and allow me to join the army - else I shall be sorely tempted to follow your example and run off to Eslandola. If I could be sure of your luck, I would do it at once.

But enough of that - I have enclosed a journal - a copy I myself have made - of the travels of a certain Father Tholeau, which I think may be of interest. See that you use it wisely however, for in fact I do not think sending it to you is quite what the academy master had in mind when he sent me with it to the copyists' room. Nevertheless, knowing your interest in anything that partakes of the marvelous, I have enclosed the copy and am sending it to you by a safe hand. May the winds always be in your sails, good cousin, and God bless you!

Signed,

Sebastian Navarrez.

Nice tie in to the previous build with the floor pattern and walld esign. The marble bust, plant, ship model, and scribes hard at work make for quite a pretty scene default_wubnew.gif

Excellent table and bookshelf too pirate_classic.gif

This joint effort story line has proven real interesting. I'm enjoying it immensely.

Great vignette Kai. I loved the bookshelf and the press. Only comment I'll make is that I thought the apprentice in the first frame (Sebastian Navarrez?) was naked at first glance on my phone. That all-beige view from the rear could have used some colour variation or maybe I higher chair back to break it up.

Thank you soccerkid. :pir-grin:

There was definitely some coordination for similar builds between myself and Kai.

I'm really happy how they both turned would. Great work Kai. :thumbup:

Great interior, Kai - I particularly like the bookshelf with the different sizes of books. All you need now is to vary the thickness of the books. pirate_blush.gif

Lovely build, Kai, the colors really pop, and the details - bookshelf, writing desks, ship, table bust, etc. - are excellent as well! Awesome minifigs too, and great job continuing the storyline! pirate_wink.gif

pirate_look.gif Now there's a possibility that never even crossed my mind. Yep. Something to keep in mind there!

Thanks!

Ferry good!

(Sorry about my German accent...)

Yes, the coordination definitely helped this part of the storyline flow. Thanks!

But, I did that! pirate_laugh2.gif With the profile bricks. Okay, not too much variation, true. pirate_wink.gif Thank you!
