In the year 624 in the Brick Seas, the city of Punto Sur was an important trading city for merchant ships and pirates.

 

Punto Sur, Maldria, Eslandola

 

Don Alejandro Martínez de Recalde Sáez de Vasoçavala y de Sancha de Larrinaga was the governor of Punto Sur.

 

Ayuntamiento, Punto Sur

 

After a storm, a small ship sailed into the harbor on February 28th under the command of Captain Diana Price.

 

Sailing to the New Haven Sea

 

Diana and her crew were tasked with exploring the situation and gathering information. After a long visit to the tavern to get some food, the first port of call was an important contact person.

 

Tienda Del Comerciante Del Evento, Punto Sur

 

Alvaro Gomez had now become a major businessman with important contacts. He was even friends with the governor Don Alejandro Martínez. Don Alejandro Martínez remembers this deal with joy. With the Royal Factory, Punto Sur became an important Eslandian city in the New Haven Sea.

December 623

 

Heavy Losses on Both Sides as ESL Clashes with Sea Rats. An arrogant and conceited Eslandian pirate hunter attacked the neutral Sea Rats merchant fleet. The Sea Rats defended themselves bravely despite heavy losses. The flagship Perla de Labuan and the ships La Gomera, Estrella and Pergrine II survived the naval battle. The ships Pride of Pontelli and La Comete III were boarded.

End of June 624.

 

Commodore Kane's fleet is beyond the range of the fortress cannons. First came some rowing boats with sailors, traders and patriots (all were pirates). Then Commodore Kane came with his guard. The meeting point was the building of the city Guardias de Punto Sur.

The armory and soldiers' quarters are located on the ground floor and basement. We can see on the ground floor breastplates, helmets and muskets.

The offices and officers’ quarters are on the first floor. Sargento Ernesto Parra walked down the spiral staircase. He was very friendly and really tried to look after Alvaro Gomez. Unfortunately, he was distracted by the painting of Lisa.

 

On the second floor there is the VIP lounge (Lounge for Scoundrels) and accommodation of the port commander.

Intermediate event:

 

The Governor of Punto Sur Don Alejandro Martínez de Recalde Sáez de Vasoçavala y de Sancha de Larrinaga had given the port commander, Teniente Jan Vargas, the important task of inspecting the ships outside the port. As he was about to climb the ship's ladder, the ship's cook was probably emptying a bucket of kitchen waste. It was probably just a coincidence and understanding that the trash fell on his head. He saw his target within reach, his hands and head were above the railing, he was almost on the main deck. As he looked over the railing, he saw a sailor who had slipped on a brush on the ship's deck. Unfortunately, this brush flew into his face. Jan Vargas lost his balance and landed in the water.

 

The Governor welcomes Kane in the lounge.

 

Don Alejandro: "Señor Kane, I am pleased to make your acquaintance."

Kane: "Commodore Kane"

Don Alejandro: "Of course, please excuse. Commodore Kane. I am Governor of Punto Sur Don Alejandro Martínez de Recalde Sáez de Vasoçavala y de Sancha de Larrinaga."

Kane: "Hi Al"

Don Alejandro was really angry, but he showed no reaction.

Kane: "I found 20 Doubloon on the street, is it yours?"

Don Alejandro: (He looks at the coin greedily.) "Yes, Is the coin round and does it have a 20 written on it? That's exactly the coin I lost and was searched."

Kane: "Yes, that's right, you described the coin exactly and it undoubtedly belongs to you."

Don Alejandro: "Commodore Kane, thank you for finding my coin."

Kane: "I realize that we now understand each other. Don Alejandro, an agreement between pirates traders and Punto Sur could be beneficial for all."

Wonderful build, good story. I do especially like the links to the background posts. And a definite :pir-thumb: to adding to the character and lore of Punto Sur. A governor has to do what he has to do. :wink:

Thank you very much. Exactly, soldiers with morion helmet also belong to Brethren of the Brick Seas.

Thank you very much. Correctly said, a governor is obliged to do everything for the good of the city and its population.

Nice! The exterior already looks good, but having a properly furnished interior only makes it better. I like the addition of the wood beams supporting the floors.

Thank you very much. I'm glad I built an interior this time, because it really makes the diorama more interesting.
