[OL - CHIII - CAT C] A'Chua's People

Recommended Posts

...and as the days ended on the fourth lunar cycle, A'chua the Voyager returned from the West. 
And he brought with him a priest from that strange land. 
And he brought with him a scribe, to record the priest's deeds.
And he brought with him a warrior, to guard the priest.
And he brought with him a child, to learn from the priest.
And it was good.

Tyree'Dee Fishing Platform

And the priest did speak to the fishermen of the Tyree'Dee.
And he proclaimed that the gods recognised by the Tyree'Dee were the same as those recognised in the East.
That Rangaroa, Master of the Seas, the Bountiful One, is known to them as Pus'hēden.
That Lono, Lord of the Heavens, the Fertile Father, is known to them as Sus.
That Te Pua, Master of Death, Guardian of Flames, is known to them as Hē'des. 

Tyree'Dee Fishing Platform

And he proclaimed that other tribes from the West would come.
And they would wear the badge of the Lotus.

And they would not recognise our gods.
And they would not respect our traditions. 
And they would kill our people.
And they would plunder our possessions.
And they would trample our crops.
And they would despoil the graves of our ancestors.

Tyree'Dee Fishing Platform

All this, A'chua the Voyager confirmed.

I applaud the idea of assimilating natives' gods with Halosian ones.The underwater scene looks good, I like how you've attached the fishes with clips. They seamlessly blend into the background, giving an impression that the fishes were actually floating on air.

Really nice text and brilliant part usage such as the stud shooters at the columns which look like sculptured, the (spider) net, the trans clear tile with handle for the swimmer etc. I like it!

@Beleg the Ranger Thanks! I thought it would be a neat idea to build vertically, and a fishing tower seemed a neat idea.

@Bodi Naturally, assimilation was a big thing back in Roman times. I'm really happy with how the fish look, too. Like a proper shoal.

@Fraunces Thanks. I have been doing François' story epigramally, and something from the Natives' perspective seemed appropriate for this category.

@blackdeathgr Cheers! I was particularly happy with the spider web as a fishing net. I've had them knocking around for a while and never used them. This was my chance!

Great representation of those natives !

I like how you graduate the build showing underwater fishermen; merchants at quay and jumping fishermen from the tower !

It's very dynamic and using very nicely the new trans elements to create a really vivid scene !

Great job ! :pir-huzzah2:
