Transcript of an interrogation at Forêt d'Or Lumber Yard, Fatu Hiva, as recorded by Monsieur Gallo, temple notary.

Candidate #1 was asked to explain the circumstances surrounding the 'Fatu Hiva Incident' of 19 June 618.
Candidate #1 responded with incoherent mumbles.
Candidate #1 was asked to speak up.
Candidate #1 told temple representatives to leave, with expletives.
Candidate #1 was restrained.
Candidate #2 was asked the same question.
Candidate #2 yelled something incoherent about "Al'Su".
Candidate #2 was asked to elaborate.
Candidate #2 yelled something incoherent about "Skulltaker prophecy".
Candidate #1 was asked to corroborate the account of Candidate #2.
Candidate #1 confirmed Candidate #2's account and explained that "bad juju" had happened to both the colonists and the subsequent survey teams.
Candidate #1 was asked to elaborate what that meant.
Candidate #1 refused.
Candidate #1 was restrained.
Candidate #2 was asked about the "Skulltaker" mentioned.
Candidate #2 refused to answer.
Candidate #2 was restrained.
Candidate #2 was asked again.
Candidate #2 explained that the "Skulltaker" tribe had met the colonists, had been displeased, and had "awoken" [?] something.
Candidate #1 told Candidate #2 to stop talking, with expletives.
Candidate #1 was restrained.
Candidate #1 was asked to corroborate Candidate #2's answer.
Candidate #1 told temple representatives to leave, with expletives.
Candidate #2 was asked to explain more.
Candidate #2 refused.
Candidate #2 was restrained.

Further questions proved ineffectual as Candidate #1 had sustained a broken jaw, and Candidate #2 was rendered catatonic, apparently through fear.

All records certified to be accurate and correct by Padre François of the Order of the Faith.

Aaaaand here it is without the minifigs:

I figured terrified natives would want to cut the jungle back as far as possible, build stronger pallisade walls, and, if possible, get more material to build boats out of (So they could leave in a hurry). A lumber yard fulfills all of these needs!

It also seemed like a good place for Padre François to start an uncompromising assault on the island. Let me know your thoughts.

Nice scene you created. 
And a good idea to present the story in the form of the transcript you did.

*I do hope my men won't come across the Padre and his though, he might not like their views.

@Bart Thanks for your comments. I don't quite have the guts to RP the Padre in his own words yet. I'm very different to him IRL...

But they haven't even started burning heretics yet.

Good looking build - small enough to keep the focus on the scene, big enough for details and structure.

The story around it is great! Nice to see some Oleander take the gloves off.

Overall, well done! :thumbup:

I love how you have embraced a darker character than most of us - it makes his stories very captivating and really adds to the sinister side of the order that has always been hinted at but never really explored. Excellent presentation and fantastic story - another strong challenge entry, well done!

@Ayrlego Thanks. IC, François is totally convinced he's doing the right thing; that the ends justify the means. 

OOC, he's a zealot who had to be shipped out of Oleon because he had a lot of powerful people very nervous. And he wants to go back!
