[COR - FB3] - A First Meeting with the Onondaga

Recommended Posts

"A First Meeting with the Onondaga"

Upon their arrival at Elizabethville, Captain Brickleton had his men set up a camp behind Fort di Legno.

An abandoned cabin across the main path from the soldier's camp caught Captain Brickleton's eye and he inquired with the town mayor as to its provenance. He learned it had been home to a local merchant who met her demise earlier that year at sea in a run-in with Sea Rats. With no family, the cabin had sat vacant since.

Captain Brickleton made a formal offer to the town Mayor and purchased the cabin. He would be immediately adjacent to his men in camp, but would have a roof over his head rather than tent canvas.

About two weeks after moving into the cabin, Second Lieutenant Bolton of the Elizabethville militia came by and announced they had received a letter for Captain Brickleton from a passing frigate. As the lieutenant was presenting the letter to Captain Brickleton, two native Onodaga warriors appeared and made introductions. Captain Brickleton was on edge during that first meeting, having never met a native before. However, he quickly realized the two Onodaga were jovial and kind. They shared some cordial and nuts.

Once the guests had left, he opened the letter and was glad to see it was from Elsabeth Stockton.

The cabin wasn't large, having only one room, but it had plenty of space for the man by himself. He purchased a bed in town and brought it back to the cabin.

Captain Brickleton inquired with the Onondaga warriors about their feathers and learned they came from the plumage of a white eagle.

Captain Brickleton was pleased by the many windows in the cabin, which would have otherwise been quite dark.

The cabin needed a good sweeping, but was in pretty good shape for having sat vacant.

looking good @evancelt! I love the technique in that Log Cabin, it really shows a lot of effort, and the sideways bricks really make it pop. The roof looks great as well, and I don't think I've seen the technique in a while.

Only critiques, are that all the pictures are from the same angle, and the cabin is missing a door. Otherwise, great build, and the story is quite well done.

Nice cabin, would like to see the inside too :)

Thanks! I have another MOC planned that'll have inside shots.

I don't know if stones on the roof makes sense, but it looks pretty good!  Nice job on the sideways walls too.

Thanks - I was going for a pseudo-slate roof

I like the log building! I've been wanting to do one of those for a while, but never found a decent way to build it. Adding a door would really finish this off, I think.

Great log cabin evancelt! It's really nice to see Elizabethville getting some attention and you can easily see you've done your research with regards to the settlement and it's existing lore. Fantastic job!
