    CDC2 CMF: LittleJohn

    Pumpkin Pie Master - Nocturnus Nocturnus is famous for it's pumpkin pies, but it takes a steady hand, nerves of steel, and a good dose of luck to survive as one of Nocturnus' fabled pie bakers. To become a true pie master you must develop your own variation of the deadly pastry. Because of this, the exact recipes are fiercely kept secrets... You will never know what is actually put into your pie. Stone Mason - Mitgardia Mountain giants aren't all fearsome brutes. Some turn their immense strength to more productive ends, like this skilled stone mason. Orym enjoys solitude and tends to work alone with only his dove as company. Author/Philosopher - Kaliphlin Irène is a renowned member of the University of Petraea, an expert in literature, and an extremely persuasive writer in her own right. Her works often spark heated debates, as she never shies away from controversial subjects. Elven Seamstress - Avalonia One of the finest seamstresses in Avalonia, Elalen pairs the finest quality materials with her expert craftsmanship. Anything made by her will not be cheap, but surely worth every copper! Minotaur Florist - Nocturnus Rutrus has a deep love for plants, and cultivates some truly magical (and enormous!) blossoms. He's an incredibly patient individual, so long as you don't trod among his flowers! Beast Slayer - Mitgardia Bondric Darkmaster first made a name for himself as a young dwarf by slaying a massive cave spider that he stumbled across while mining. Since then has made a profession out of slaying dangerous underground beasts and always takes payment in the form of precious metals and gem stones, which he has amassed quite a collection of. Orc Farmer - Kaliphlin "Those pesky camels have been eating my hay again! I wish those noble snobs would keep a tighter rein on their mammals!" Bakh is a hard working orc who owns a small homestead in northern Kaliphlin, and has a strong disdain for those who don't respect his animals and crops. Makes hay while the sun shines - which in Kaliphlin, is, well, very often. Alchemist - Avalonia Geffery can usually be found in one of two places - in his shop reading books and experimenting with new potions, salves, herbs, and remedies, or travelling to help those who are sick. The results of his work speak for themselves, and many come from great distances to seek his aid for loved ones suffering from serious illness. Extravagant Fop - Varlyrio "Spare no expense, I can afford it. Just look at these goats - the finest in the land." Incredibly rich, and well known for his lavish tastes. His parties are legendary, and getting an invite is quite a plus for your social standing. Cyclops Innkeeper - Mitgardia Has established a well respected tavern especially notable for its peaceful atmosphere. Arguments somehow never turn violent under his singular, steady gaze. Spice Merchant - Kaliphlin "Take a whiff of this - aren't the notes of lemon and the tanginess exquisite?" Transports the most exotic spices and fragrances from Kaliphlin to rich clients in other guilds. Now owns his own caravan and looks to expand his route in the years ahead. Fairy - Avalonia Azalea is an incredibly gifted musician who spends most of her time with the baby dragon Lindras. She discovered Lindras as little more than a hatchling, and has cared for her since. Local rumor has it that you can hear beautiful, otherworldly music when wandering through southern portions of the Enchanted Forest. Beast Master - Alnya Felisa spent much of her childhood in the forest, and now counts the woodland creatures as her closest friends. Others from her rural village often seek her advice if they're having trouble taming their livestock, or need help treating an injury. Artist - Varlyrio Having a portrait painted by Gerardo is something only the most affluent can afford. Though tales say that as a child it was his attempts to forge some valuable artwork that first caught the art world's notice - and the attention of the local magistrate. General Store Owner - Avalonia "Two bundles of carrots and a bag of flour? Coming right up!" Alenia accepts only the finest and freshest produce from her suppliers, which when coupled with her cheerful disposition makes her shop of one the most popular in town. Wizard - Nocturnus Poof "Did it work?! Why can't I see anything? Are you there Froggy?" Wizardry can be a dangerous task. Mess up and, well, I think you can see the consequences. To this day there still are rumors about what may have caused the strange and sudden disappearance of Rolyn the wizard.... A shot of the whole group: Really enjoyed putting this series together, and seeing what all of you are coming up with for this challenge as well. Some fantastic entries so far! C&C welcome as always, I would love to hear which ones are your favorites!
  2. I'd rather not think about how long it's been since I last posted one, but I finally have a new free-build up

    Allanar Mine

    I originally started this build back in the end of November with the intention of entering it into the Colossal Castle Contest. But, life got very busy, and I ended up running out of time. So when they extended the deadline to January 31st, I used that as motivation to finish the half-completed monstrosity that was taking up the majority of my desk. There are still some things I would revise a bit if I had more time, (particularly some of the interior areas) but all in all I’m very happy to have it finished! And I’m also super glad to have finally done another sizable build set in Allanar Forest. The build was inspired by this wonderful artwork by Myoung Hoon Park. The Dwelves’ primary mine is located on the west edge of Allanar Forest. These days Goren generally oversees mining operations, but the massive lodge is used for much more than just mining. Added on to and repaired many times over the years, the structure is a welcome sight for any dwelves traveling through that part of the forest. From offering shelter and accommodation for hunters, to warmth and a hearty meal for herdsman moving animals between pastures, the ancient building is a true landmark and great place to meet with old friends. More on Brickbuilt. Phew, it's been far too long since I posted a build here in the guilds! Hopefully it won't be quite as long before I have another build to post here. Hopefully Thanks for looking, C&C welcome!

    [MOC] Veteran Warrior

    My seventh build for the latest Iron Builder round against Inthert. The seed part is the Plate, Modified 2 x 3 with Bar in dark red. This was heavily inspired by Eero Okkonen’s phenomenal brick-built figures. As always, C&C are very welcome
  6. As Kai said, great to see so many new faces in Kaliphlin! Welcome to the guilds @jtooker, @Legonaut, and @BadgersinMeadows, glad to have you!

  8. Great to see you back @Rconn0! Really excited to see what you've been making!
  9. Just posted a new freebuild, this time set in Alnya:
  10. Another entry for the CCC, in the Treasure Transport category. Also another scene set in Alnya, building off my previous models there. The trap actually functions via a crank in the tunnels – a section of the road falls down into the net of the waiting goblins below. Hopefully this will be just the first of many Dwelf Tales! Goren the miner has amassed a fine collection of precious metals and jewels over the years. Recently he asked his friend Garrek to transport a small selection of them to the Adventurer’s Guild in return for new mining equipment and other supplies. Garrek readily agreed and set off through Allanar forest with his goats pulling the wagon load. Little do they realize that the goblins have a sneaky trap prepared on this road! Will Garrek and his goats ever make it to the Adventurer’s Guild? More pictures on Brickbuilt. Thanks for looking, C&C welcome
  11. Finally back with another Kaliphlin build, for category A of Challenge IV:
  12. The Desert King has been growing increasingly dissatisfied with his control of Kaliphlin - sand, palm trees, more sand - he wanted something more. Sure, it's nice to relax in the cool of an evening on a rooftop, while being served fruits and star gazing - not to mention the best linens, the seemingly endless riches, and the finest spices in all of Historica - but he wanted more. He wanted control. Control of all of Historica, not just Kaliphlin. He began secretly gathering troops to Al Tajir, near the Avalonia-Kaliphlin border, preparing to launch a surprise attack on Cedrica. He also planted spies in several locations, using the current unrest of the guilds to garner support for himself. As more and more troops began arriving in Al Tajir, some residents of the city loyal to the High Council began to grow suspicious. They soon discovered what the Desert King was planning, and immediately sent word to the Queen and Resistance leaders. The queen gathered some elite Avalonian troops, and had a few of her Generals lead the march to Al Tajir, hoping to catch the Desert King by surprise before he left the city. With the help of the Resistance troops their journey was swift and undetected. Before the Desert King knew what was happening his armies were being slaughtered and driven from the city, while he himself was trapped in the palace. Such a swift and successful strike against one of her primary detractors quickly quieted public disapproval of the queen. Even much of Kaliphlin appreciated her help, as the Desert King was deposed and leadership was restored to the High Council. And while many still were not fully convinced of her right to leadership, no one dared openly rebel against a queen with such solid military backing. There were of course a very few Kaliphlinites who were more concerned with the safety of their goods than who their ruler was... Lots more pictures on Brickbuilt. So this is my entry for Challenge IV, Category A. As soon as I saw this category, I knew I had to use the opportunity to at least try to rid Kaliphlin of the Desert King's rule The build weighs in at 34.8 pounds, making it my largest MOC so far both in footprint and weight. Very glad to be done with this though – now our desk isn’t mostly covered by a single build! Well, once it’s taken apart anyways… Thanks for looking, C&C welcome!
