Nice! I am only 30 episodes behind :oh:

Actually I think episode 30 is a good point to start reading, even if you haven't read 1 to 29!

Must look into this further when I have some spare time... If I get spare time...

And we're finally back!

The story continues with Episode 32: The Queen and the King.

Yes, its title is kind of similar to the title of the whole series. :pir-classic: This is very much intentional. Also, for the first time we actually see the Spaniards, who were mentioned eariler in the series. The story also contains an interesting, perhaps rather controversial revelation.

To be continued! :pirate:

Well, not so long ago even I didn't know it would continue. By all means go ahead! :pir-classic:

Anyway, Episode 33: The Bout is here, so feel free to read that one too! :pir-devil:

Greetings! We have finally reached the last episode. You can click below to read it:

Episode 37: It's Over

So, there will be no more episodes. Does this mean there is no more story to be told? Hell no. The story itself will return, in a slightly different way, with a fresh restart, one day... :pir-classic:

However, since this is the definite ending of this portion of it, or the first series if you will, let me add a few things...

I joined Eurobricks in 2005. I started this series in 2008. The start was rough. I introduced certain things which I now regret, like the dreadful aliens which now I have finally gotten rid of (fortunately, their presence was barely seen anyway). And the quality of these early episodes, both in terms of the story and the images, was frankly not that good. It definitely needed some time to find its right tracks. And even among those later episodes, there were a few stinkers.

But it premiered in slightly different times... The times when people actually cared about the things you uploaded to Brickshelf, or to this forum. I remember receiving quite interesting feedback to this story, but also to my MOCs, which, I have to admit, were mostly awful in 2005-2008... Since then my building style has improved a lot, although I'm still far below the level of many wonderful MOCers seen here. But I use bulding as a means to tell the story, and I think the comic itself has also improved. And hopefully it will get even better when it's back in its new incarnation...

Today, a lot of people on the Internet have become indifferent. They don't care, or maybe they don't have the time to look at all this stuff anymore. Do you remember the times when even crappy MOCs (like those early builds of mine) had thousands of views on Brickshelf within several days after uploading? And people actually discussed them, whether they liked them or not? I do, and I'm sure a lot of you do too. I think one of the reasons behind this involved the fact that there were less MOCs published back then, less galleries and forum threads... Today you have plenty of those and maybe it's hard to focus on specific things because of that. And by the way, those were also the times when each and every website did not attack you with "Accept our privacy policy" first, then "Accept cookies", then "Do you want to receive notifications" and finally "Do you want to install our app?" before you could finally see what the damn page is about. Each time I'm attacked by this crap, it reminds me of this scene: :pir-classic:

Yeah, the Internet was much more fun 10 years ago and more. And I see it not just on this forum, but on others too, where people were much more willing and eager to talk about thier passions and hobbies and comment on other people's work. The abundance of stuff is one thing, but the approach of people is something different, and that has changed too...

And please don't interpret this as if I was an old AFOL complaining: Boo-hoo, they don't read my comic. That's not really the case. You see, I used to draw comics back at school (and I even suck at drawing) and then put them at the bottom of a drawer. OK, maybe 4 or 5 friends from my school saw them, but that was it. But I did it because I liked it. And the comic here is like the continuation of that tradition. And I will be doing more of it, even if it remains on the hard drive of my home computer. Because I like doing it. What I was trying to tell you is just a general observation of an overall trend.

OK, that's all from me for now... Once again, this chunk of the story is over, 12 years after it started. I'm yet to make up my mind on how to celebrate this. I have a bottle of rum in the closet though... So perhaps I shall just splice the mainbrace. :pir_laugh2:

Never knew this existed until this weekend. Seen the 1st 10 episodes by now and very much enjoying it. I find it relaxing and engaging and plan to fill some more evenings with it this week. It also brings back some very enjoyable memories from past times. Style wise it just clicks. But then again, I turned 41 this weekend, so like you I still remember a time when these things were more appreciated. It's nice to see these things still exist(ed) in a time when there's too much quick fix and simply uninteresting online 'garbage'.

Thank you very much for making this series.
