Sailing east out of Arlinsport on the Soupfish, Micah, Elizabeth, crew, and guests have arrived at King's Port where they intend on topping off their supplies before their journey to Elizabethville. Hannah and her two students had not been a burden on the ship, mostly staying to themselves. At least that is what Micah heard. He and Elizabeth had also been mostly staying to themselves in the Captain's Cabin. At King's Port, most of those on board disembarked to walk around and shop while in the city. Micah had one business contact he was supposed to meet the following morning for breakfast, so Elizabeth and he strolled through one of the open air markets. The vendors sold everything from painted dolls, to inkwells, to freshly cooked meat. Micah was certain that he just saw the lady in black he had been seeing around Arlinsport. He had been seeing glimpses of her for the last several weeks. He had for the most part ignored it as they had been visiting many shops in Arlinsport prior to the wedding. Though now here in this market in King's Port?

What Micah didn't know was that Mardier was worried that the WETEC would choose the Eslandolan side and provide them with war horses for cavalry and transports. In fact, he had not even considered choosing one side over the other. Rather, it seemed like business would be exceptional over the next several months. However, for Mardier, the Soupfish stopping in King's Port was a golden opportunity to cut the head off the WETEC and guarantee that they would not get involved. Micah didn't even see the blade coming.

The lady in black, or as Elizabeth knows her, Hannah, was not so distracted. Her fan blade may appear beautiful, but it is also deadly, as the Marderian assassin found out. Fortunately, the guard on the roof above had also seen the knife at the last moment, vindicating Hannah of the charge of murder. Not that a prison would hold her long anyway...

This is an entry for Eslandola as part of Challenge 5A. This was a fun build trying to pack the street with vendors and people, but I still had to see enough to get some decent pictures. It was inspired by my recent travel out of the country and visiting a market much like this. I also wanted to catch up on some story line and weave the lady in black into the party before we got to Elizabethville. There will be more of her in the future. 

Edit: I realized I missed the 600 post mile marker. Considering that when I joined BOBS last January, I had roughly 12 posts after a year on Eurobricks, I think I can safely blame BOBS for getting me more involved around here. I also did a grand total of 47 MOCs for BOBS last year which is more than I have done in any prior 5 year period of my life. I look forward to another year with you guys and gal(s)!

Another nice build SilentWolf, I really like the colorful awnings here!  The crowded feel is also really neat!

Great use of space, Silentwolf. I like the low buildings surrounding the market with people up top. Its a very lively scene and the market stalls are nicely done. Reminds me of markets in Palermo - only missing the giant swordfish! :tongue: Nice story too.

The Market is really well made. I like how everything fits into such a small space.

I agree, excellent use of space with this entry. You've captured the crowded market street look perfectly with those tightly positioned stalls and diverse assembly of minifigs. And the story is interesting too. Good entry.
