  1. Real quick, I've always been a bit confused by this: Is this still per MCRA, or is this per month? I've seen some monthly happen, so I just wanted to check.
  2. Thanks Cap! Thanks Bodi! It doesn't show well in the photography, but the cannons are aiming at the Count in the later pictures

    Oleon: Sign-up and Discussion, Era II

    I take this as complete and utter permission to continue the Count's reign of terror.
  4. Location: Mesabi Landing Type: Royal Collab Part 1 Part 2 It was a fine day in Mesabi Landing... From the third floor window, the Count peered down at the gardens of his luxurious mansion. Darby walked in panting. "Uh, Count, the meeting is about to start! And I got lost trying to find you!" Said Darby, exasperated. "How many rooms does this place have?!?" "Well Darby, I'm disappointed you didn't use a ball of twine to make sure that you didn't get lost." Said the Count. "That's what Thesus did, and he got the girl!" Just hurry up, Mordo is waiting!" Muttered Darby. Down 2 flights of stairs the pair hurried, before finding themselves next to a curtain of water. "Just through this secret passage into the Garden!" Exclaimed the Count. He lept into the water... and emerged on the other side. "Mordo! Good to see you!" Said the Count. "I arrived as soon as it would be dramatic to do so." "Mesabi," Mordo growled. "There's business to discuss. Business of invasions." "waaagh!" *Spash!* Darby slipped and fell into the river. "And now that we're all here, we can begin. Thanks for keeping us waiting, Darby..." said the Count. The Count removed a large knife, and began gesturing to the map. "So, Fatu Hiva. Oleon's furthest settlement. Here, they are far from the hope of ever being saved by the Oleander crown." "Uh, sorry Count. Now Fort Altrees or Jiangkai is technically the furthest away Oleander Settlement." Said Darby. "Wait really? How $#$#@ing long were we doing other things?" muttered the Count. "Too Long!" growled Mordo. "Now let's hear the plan." "Ok, so they have 2 forts. One big one, and one small one. We don't want to confuse them!" Continued the Count. "Uh, Count, there's someone watching us." Said Darby, gesturing to the mysterious cloaked gentleman hiding n the garden. "That's just the WTC Inqui-" began Count Mesabi, before Mordo slapped a hand over his mouth. "Ahem." Said Mordo in a more grave tone than usual. "Ah, yes, that's a, uh, 'garden' person." finished Count Mesabi. "Stop staring, it's rude!" "Continuing," said Mordo "So, we send a fleet of WTC ships, attack from the west flank, destroying the forts with our overwhelming firepower. We then land the WTC Rising Sun, the WTC Copperhead, and the WTC Seriously to land divisions A, B, and C on the beach." Said the Count. "Ok..." replied Mordo "We then use a pincher maneuver to land the rest of the troops in an epsilon formation... Darby, are you jotting this down?" Asked the Count. "Was I supposed to?" asked Darby. "Also, my paper got soaked coming out of the waterfall!" "Ok, you know what, we'll just go over this when we're on the way." "What's Tony supposed to do?" Asked Tony, with a suave smile. "Can't have him stealing my glory..." muttered the Count, "Hey, I know, why don't you go take out Ile le Sous le vent!" "Can do, Mr. Mesabi" Said Tony, in a cool voice. "That island is as good as dead!" The WTC marines scattered, mostly following Tony. "Alright, let's load up everyone." Said the Count. "Time to do what one rowboat couldn't...." FIN Thanks for viewing my conclusion! I spent more time on this build than I planned. Originally, it was supposed to be a pond surrounded by terraces, but I liked the idea of a river, and then added a waterfall, and well, I ended up doing one of the sides of the house. This build will be part of my builds to put a royal palace in Mesabi Landing, but I have quite a few studs to go, so we'll circle back on that later! I also would have liked to have added more greenery, but unfortunately, it seems that most of my plants are in storage. I think this turned out nice as is, however. The doors are probably the weakest part of the build, as I added them late in the build, so they're a bit underdone, but not bad looking in my opinion. I got the custom printed "Hand punching out of earth" bricks from my mum at an art gallery. I'll try to link the artist if I can find it. It's very thematic to my style, so I've been meaning to use it forever, and I think it looks amazing here. Why does the Count have a waterfall built into his mansion? Why wouldn't the Count have a waterfall built into his Mansion. If your character was smart, they'd have a waterfall built into their mansion! Views of the entire build: I hope you all enjoyed my build and story! C&C appreciated!

    Excellent use of parts! I especially like the little crane, it's quite creative!
  6. We'll expect your arrival! Well, it never came up for 3+ years, until @Ayrlego asked a few months ago, and I actually had to decide on his first name My apologies, the WTC's translation department had a bit of trouble translating such an odd and nonsensical name, and arrived at "Filipo" as a translation. We'll make sure that King "Phil-imp" and Queen "Butt-Rice" are properly addressed going forwards.
  7. Good Work Oleon! Your builds really showed great effort, and I'm glad to see that you took the settlement. As to my work... " To the representatives of Mr. King Filipo I, The Wayfaring Trading Company has enacted a grand military invasion upon the island of Île Sous le Vent. After decimating the local garrison* the WTC advanced upon the Oleander Occupation of the island** and toppled it with a full assault force of the WTC's might!*** Now, Île Sous le Vent is firmly in the hands of the WTC... As such: Île Sous le Vent is hereby named "Soup Island" for ease of communication. Why on earth did you put that triangle over the top in the first place!? Really, this one is us doing YOU a favour!***** All new construction by Oleon in this location is paused until further notice, or approval by Corrish Governments. A Squatter Settlement named Port Chowder is to be built on the island. The Wayfaring Trading Company thanks you for your cooperation in the invasion, and hopes we can enjoy a successful, and insurrection free occupation. Any counter-invasions, or insurrections will be met with the full force of the Wayfaring Trading Company's military might. In The Majestic's Service, Count Irrigo Mesabi of Debonshire, Veteran of the Juniper Wars, CEO of the Wayfarer Trading Corporation, the Fortifier of Nova Malto, Founder of the Grand City of Mesabi Landing, Sailor of the South, Purveyor of Artiodactyl and Equine Meats " *Some very cute, and entirely defenseless wildlife that will be cooked for supper. **1 Flagpole ***like, 10 guys on a ship ****OOC: Look, I know it's named for a real place, but I hate having to figure out how to type the " Î " all the time, and I think naming an island "soup island" is way funnier.
  8. Excellent Terrain and foliage Keymonus. The scene is excellent, and works quite well,
  9. Looking good @CapOnBOBS, and your work towards securing Terraversa is certainly going to make it hard for Oleon to be scraped off! (Personally, OOC I hope this conflict ends with a heavily guarded DMZ between King's Port and Westface, as you all have put so much work into all of this!) (IC the Count is on the warpath!!!) I've got to say, the sloped sides transition excellently into the fortress, and there's not a detail I would change. Bravo! (And congrats on making it to front page!)
  10. 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! I'm looking forwards to building it! I've got one more build in the pipeline first....
  11. Ok, feel free to judge me for being able to find this stuff.... but: (I have way too much free time at my job...) Also, would totally love the ability to license in the Old World. Might be able to ship an army to my Namere AMCRA!

    Excellent build, and well rendered! You really captured the feel of a Spanish missionary church, and the parts usage is excellent. Fantastic job!
  13. Taking this from the KPA thread, so it doesn't get in the way of discussion about the battle.... I kind of want to know some of the answers to these questions, partly for Fatu Hiva. Are occupiers / invaders allowed to build fortifications in Settlements? i.e. can I build Forts in Fatu Hiva? I hope this doesn't take MUCH more time from the court, and I'm in no hurry to know. I've got a idea backlog a mile long....
  14. Not that I'm any authority on the matter, but we should probably take this to Jose's tavern, or the main BoBS discussion.
  15. Nice cut out, and good looking scene! I like the mundaneness of the scene. great job!
