The next morning the slave trader and his men took the carriage and walked into the city of Mophet. It was crowded with people and creatures/beings inside of the city walls. Various strange smells, chatter, laughter and screams filled the air. They passed by buildings with streets and came to a square full of people. Z looked out of the bars and saw all kinds of people running around. On the other side of the carriage there was a camel looking into the cage drooling on the bars as they passed by. It was a lot to take in for the tired prisoners.

The company came to a stop in a square. There was some kind of crowd ahead. 

48421679222_0dc8594e9e_s.jpg  "- What's happening?" Pointy asked

48421679142_5662421338_s.jpg  "- I don't know. I can't see" Hoves side from the front of the carriage.

48716615952_a191aa2711_s.jpg  "- Kraaah, be ready, be ready. Kraaah!" Crow said when he landed on top of the cage. 

48421529676_7a63500ba4_s.jpg  "- Be ready for what?" Z said out loud. 
Left-eye turn his head and looked at Z with a confused look. 
48421679052_9ec29a470b_s.jpg  "- What did you say?"

48421529676_7a63500ba4_s.jpg  "- Erm, nothing" Z said

50597228861_048536b091_w.jpg

48716615952_a191aa2711_s.jpg  "- Boy will come, be ready, kraaah"

A little boy came up to Z beside the carriage. 

"- Pssst, you" he said and looked at Z "- I've got a message for you. There will be a commotion ahead soon, don't mind it. Tell your friends to be ready. I will open the cage door and let you out. Then you have to follow me quickly down under ground. We only got a few seconds!"

Z told the others and they got ready.

After awhile the crowd started to scatter and people started to scream. People ran past the carriage. They heard a lady screaming of fear and soon they all saw that the ground was full of snakes that were hissing and trying to bite the nearest persons. The snakes came closer to the elephant and the mage's horse and they started to back away from the snakes. On the other side of the open space they saw a large overturned barrel from which the snakes came out. The mage became furious and started to scream at the man.

In the commotion the little boy quickly picked the lock and opened the gate. 

48716615952_a191aa2711_s.jpg   "- Kraaah, hurry. Tabib will come"

"- Follow me" The boy whispered. The slaves ran after the boy to a nearby building and into a small door. Inside the door were stairs down to the basement.

The mage became furious and he began shouting at his guards to protect him. The mage lifted up his staff and started to mumble. 

50597352142_1b48f95217_s.jpg  "- Stop! Lower your staff!" A voice in the crowd said out loudly.

The people in the crowd stood aside and tall man with hair as white as snow and a long beard came out from the crowd and stopped midst if the snakes. The crowd whispered and you could here some say "- It's Tabib"

The mage became silent as he saw the bearded man. 

50597352142_1b48f95217_s.jpg  "- You don't rise your staff against any living creature inside the walls of Mophet!" Tabib said in a calm voice that made the whole square go silent. 

48421713156_39706b830a_s.jpg  "- Get your filthy snakes away from us Tabib. I’m not afraid of you” the mage screamed.

50597229731_3ec2382f81_z.jpg

 

Tabib started to whisper in some odd language and the snakes meander back towards Tabib.

50597352142_1b48f95217_s.jpg “- In Mophet it’s not welcome to use faul and dark magic. Take you men and walk out of the city and go back to Nocturnus.” Tabib responded.

50603671393_c3aeb07b40_c.jpg

48421713156_39706b830a_s.jpg  “- I have a meeting by the fighting pits. We are not leaving.”

50597352142_1b48f95217_s.jpg  “- What is a slave trader as yourself going to do there without any slaves to trade? Tabib said with a hint of a smile on his lips.

The mage turned around and looked at the carriage and saw the empty cage.

48421713156_39706b830a_s.jpg  “- Noooooo!!!”

 


The different builds
For this story I had to get some help from my friend and fellow member of SwedishLegoMafia @adde51. Most of the builds is his that he has posted earlier (se below) I built the square and two houses. Then we put it all together for some awesome photos and an awesome part of the city Mophet. 

Zamorah Embassy in Mophet
Since Zamorah opened up for trade with other regions in Historica they built embassies in many cities. This building has the Zamorah Weapon crest and sand green and white colours.

Hidamus Family residence
This is a house in Mophet Kaliphlin belongs to a wealthy centaur merchant family. In this MOC I tested to blend tan, teal and pearl gold and I think it was a great combo.

You guys both did an awesome job!  I really like the color combinations and the detail on both of yours.  Great textures on the tan one and neat use of those printed dish pieces on top.  The white one has a great layout too, and I love the way you put torches on both of them!  Also impressive work angling the white house!

Another great story installment, and fantastic work on the layout from both of you!  Your buildings fit with @adde51's so seamlessly, it's hard to tell where one moc ends and another begins.  Keep it up!

Great job guys!!  Very nice buildings and architecture.  The color choices are great.  The story is going along nicely.  There are some great figs and wonderful details throughout the builds.

Wonderful collaboration!  This is such a vast and detailed MOC - it really sets the scene for the dialog.  As others have said, your MOCs fit well together, if I were just looking at the pictures, I would assume one person built everything.

Your Hidamus Family residence is my favorite.  I love the brickwork style and little decorations.  The colors work well together and make the building stand out while still looking like it belongs.

That’s a lot of tan! These all look so good together, one of the best GoH city layouts I have seen. And it’s always a plus when you can get some all-LEGO shots in, since the background is so developed. Great work!

Thanks! It was awesome to see all all of Adde51's builds in one layout and fun to expamd the scene with a square and bildings.

The bended bricks in teal was a given roof piece. And I then remembered those printed dish pieces. I'm quite pleased with how it looked.

The sandgreen and white was given as sand green is an avalonian colour and the colour of Zamorah's crest.

I'm glad that you say that. It's hard to fit a MOC besides another great builders MOC. Even if you both like details It's hard to get the right amount of details and color combinations. A common problem with Community Builds.

Thanks. A thought that I would go further with coloured pieces like teal and also coral. I was inspired by tha latest Aladdin movie. But I kind of chickened out and scaled the colours down.

I love building minifigs. Some of them I'm quite pleased with. But many is ok. It was alot of figs to build :grin:

Thanks. My Kaliphlin builds and scenes are inspired by MOCs done by @adde51 and @Gideon. And doing a scene in Mophet, a town mostly built by Adde51, I had to adapt to the previous MOCs done by Adde51. And I"m pleased with the outcome.

On Hidamus residence I tried different techniques for the walls. One of those I have wanted to test for a long time. I have alot of tan "Plate, Modified 1 x 2 with Door Rail" from parting out two Big Ben sets. So I used those with jumper plates an tiles.

This is amazing guys, I love that you keep the story going!

Thanks. I've been building the story for like 1,5 years :grin: And i'm far from coming home to Avalonia. With this pace it will take 10 years with only the ideas I have now :grin:

That's incredible...

I have trouble to imagine all the time and all the stuff put into this huge build... Amazing display for sure. And all those wonderful fig.

 

:thumbup::thumbup:

Thanks. It was like a year ago I told my idea of this scene for Add51. So we put all of his still existing MOCs together and I expanded the scene with my MOCs done this summer. So it has taken awhile.

Thanks a lot everyone, very glad we were able to put all of this together and take som decent photos (it's not easy at this scale...haha!). Very happy with the way everything turned out and the additions to Mophet made by @Zilmrud. We talked for quite some time about his character coming to the city and I'm glad Tabib was able to play a part in Z's escape :sweet: . More things will follow as Z's not out of Kali yet (who would ever leave the sandpit for those tree-huggers, come on...:laugh:), so stay tuned!
