Recommended Posts

It was a breezy day in Mesabi Landing, as the winds of change blew through the dusty settlement. 

Karl Mordo stood on the WTC VIP dock, waiting for the arrival for Count Mesabi.

“Now, the Count has always been insane. Unfortunately, after his return from the south, he’s only grown more egomaniacal, and crazy. He’s also very lethal. Unfortunately, we can't strike first. We'll need to wait till he attacks.” Said Mordo in a concerned tone. He peered out into the water towards the approaching rowboat. 

“I knew the danger when I signed on, sir.” Said the WTC Elite Guard.

“Good," replied Mordo, "I have already prepared the pension for your widow. It is possible he may decide to orphan your children as well, so there are funds allocated for a new orphanage.” Replied Mordo stoically.

“Is it a coal mining orphanage, like the other one?” asked the guard.

“It may be a coal mining orphanage, like the other one...” 

MEANWHILE

The rowboat bobbed in the water as Count Mesabi and Darby were rowed towards the shore. 

“Alright Darby." Said the Count, "The man we’re set to meet is very dangerous. His work in the Telvoki campaign of the Juniper War earned him the name, ‘The Ripper.’ He’s going to try and have us killed. We'll wait for him to strike first” 

Darby: “Wait! We hired a guy with the nickname 'The Ripper?!?' Why?!?” Said Darby, realizing his life was once again in danger.

Mesabi: “I remember his resume being near the top of the pile. Anyways, expect a sniper team, and perhaps cannons…” Said the Count with the same regard for the statement as his tea order earlier that morning.

The Rowboat found it's way to the pier. The Count and Darby disembarked, and began to walk towards Mordo.

“Hi there, Karl. Glad to finally meet you…” Said the Count, with more than a hint of paranoia.

“And Hi to you, Count Mesabi. Glad of you to Grace the settlement….” Replied Mordo, with slightly more paranoia.

 “I hope we can discuss business” Continued the Count, accentuating more of his words. His eyes darted the horizon, looking for snipers.
 
Karl: “Yes, business is to be Discussed. Shall we?” Finished Karl, not venturing out further onto the dock in case it exploded.

The two continued into the settlement....

TO BE CONTINUED....


Continuing Mesabi's story of his journey towards Fatu Hiva. I hope this build looks polished enough, but @Darnok is going to find some brick I didn't push down.

I had fun writing the story for this one, but it took a few drafts. I resisted the urge to have an action sequence, but I think it's better without one.

C&C appreciated! pt. 3, coming soon...

Good construction. The entrance area looks very good. I particularly like the first photo because I only see part of it and I think it's a very big building.

 

 

Good and interesting story. It was wise not to do an action sequence.

 

 

I'm really looking forward to pt. 3 Fatu Hiva.:pir-huzzah2:

 

Kings Port Advertiser and Ship List (Vol. 6, Issue 1)

 

60 soldiers are available for pickup by neutral shipping. 240 of the fort garrison will rejoin the forts, if/when they are rebuilt by Oleon. What did they do during the invasion?:pir-angry: Instead of a large fortress, a hot dog stand would have been more effective.:pir_laugh2: This could have saved time because all invaders want a hot dog!:pir-grin: I would transfer all soldiers to Stalingrad Kings Port!:jollyroger:

Thank you NOD! The plan is to build a royal residence in Mesabi Landing, through a series of small scenes. It'll take a while though!

Thanks Bodi! It doesn't show well in the photography, but the cannons are aiming at the Count in the later pictures :pir-laugh:
