  1. Location: Iceland Tags: vacation Previous vacation related post: http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?/forums/topic/135847-o-h06-vacation-all-i-ever-wanted/ Currently... We're going to Iceland, honey? Yes, while we're waiting for Andromeda's Gates: Second Era, I thought it would be nice if we visited one of historic precursors of Mitgard with Ethel, as she travels to learn about her ancestry. I see. Bqllr! ++++++++++ So, where's our first stop? Well, we would be remiss if we did not visit the Icelandic Phallological Museum in Iceland's capital city of Reykjavik during our trip. It houses the world's largest display of penises, including 280 specimens from 93 different species. Here are some from the common seal. Bqllr! And here's one from a sperm whale. It's impressive, but it's not as impressive as yours, honey. I know. Bqllr! ++++++++++ Here's the famous Hallgrimskirkja, a Lutheran church finished in the ancient Terran year of 1986, which is a popular landmark for tourists in Reykjavik. And right nearby is a statue of Leif Eriksson, one of Ethel's ancestors. Contrary to popular belief, Christopher Columbus wasn't the first European to discover North America; that honor belongs to Leif Eriksson. Bqllr! ++++++++++ Where are we now? We are at the Þingvellir National Park, part of Iceland's famous Golden Circle. Not surprisingly, it's full of tourists even during off peak hours. It's still beautiful! Bqllr! ++++++++++ These are geysers! Yes, we are at the Geysir location along the Golden Circle. My favorite one is named Strokkur. It erupts every six minutes. That is some impressive endurance; but still, not as impressive as yours, honey. Bqllr! ++++++++++ What interesting rock formations! Indeed. These are the famous basalt column cliffs near Snæfellsjökull National Park. There are so many incredible things to see in that park, such as these beautiful rock formations at Arnarstapi. Or Mount Stapafell. Or the glacier capped volcano the national park is named after: Snæfellsjökull. Bqllr! ++++++++++ And we'll end our trip by hiking on the Sólheimajökull glacier. It's so hard and slippery! Bqllr! ++++++++++ Wow, that was a great trip! Iceland is such a beautiful country! What's next, honey? I believe now we spend our time preparing for Andromeda's Gates: Second Era. Bqllr! Comments and criticisms are all welcome!
  2. New Ship Classes - The Transition

    Absolutely Fabulous 2T
  3. In the quiet suburban town of Massey, an outbreak of zombies occurs at the local high school! This begins a brand new horror story so fresh and original, and absolutely not derived from used and tired material, because no one has ever thought of placing a zombie outbreak in a high school before! I especially didn't get this idea from watching Japanese anime! Watch as our heroes carefully tread through the hallways they once felt so safe in! Let's meet our heros! Jeremy Parker's role in the party is a tank, which is not a reference to any sort of role playing game whatsoever! He's not a nerd nor a jock, and just happens to be a good looking, atheletic, smart, and popular young man that any male audience member can relate to! And here's the mystery...for some reason, even though he's been scratched and bitten by zombies (look at his clothes!), he hasn't turned. At least not, yet. Is he immune? Or is he a ticking time bomb? Does he represent the potential cure which can save all mankind? What might he become should he actually be fatally wounded? Whatever the case, brave Jeremy is the hero who gets up close and personal with the undead and takes their assaults, because he's the only one who can! A horror trope is not a horror trope unless we have a cheerleader! Meet Amber Jones, the head cheerleader! She's beautiful and popular, and was dating the captain of the football team, until he became a zombie and had to have his head caved in! She's joined up with the rest of our heroes out of desperation, trying to figure out what's going on. She serves the party as a DPS, brandishing a Louisville Slugger she found at the school gym. Based on the rules of classic horror tropes, the question is: will she become the love interest of the main hero and survive or will she be just another pretty face whose brain feeds the zombies?! Or, in a twist of mindblowing proportions, could she break the rules and become something else?! The leader, Grant Ward, or Coach as he's known to the students, is the old, disgruntled, and hard P.E. teacher. Did I say hard? I meant hardboiled! Coach doesn't take shit from the students and he's not about to take shit from any zombie! Did I say shit? Good thing Eurobricks is a site for adults or Coach would have sent me to detention! He shoulders the responsibility as the group's decision maker, and right now, he's looking to guide the party to safety, while killing every freaking zombie in their way! As a DPS, Coach's numbers are off the charts, whether he's kicking in zombie skulls with his cowboy boots or splattering their brains on the walls with his trusty revolver, the choice of zombie headshotters everywhere! Every party needs a healer, and this one is no exception! Meet Abigail Hensley, the school nurse! Even though she's the healer, zombies had better watch out! In addition to the first aid kit she carries, she also wields a mean looking axe. Hot for nurse? You better be! Horror films/television series never hire ugly people to play the main characters, so the only ugly people here are the zombies! And you can bet she's single. How do I know? Because I wrote her character and I'm telling you she's single! Finally we have Michiko Tanihara. No horror trope is complete without the quiet loner who nobody pays attention to at first, but whose badassery makes her everyone's favorite character midway through the story. Is badassery even a word? If not, it should be! And Michiko is one badass zombie murdering DPS. She even comes with her own compound bow, thanks to being a member of the archery club! All I know is if she dies, I'm not watching the show anymore! Wait, I'm the writer! In that case, if she dies, I'm not reading my own posts, anymore! And there you have it, folks! Our brave heroes at Massey High! Will they survive and make it to safety?! Will Amber save Jeremy from slowly turning into a zombie through the power of love?! Will Jeremy become the cure that saves mankind?! Will Coach and Abigail, the school nurse, develop mutual feelings for each other right before tragedy strikes one of them?! And just how many zombies will Michiko kill in her last stand as she sacrifices herself to save the party in an utterly tear-jerking episode ending?! Spoiler alert! You'll never know!!! This is my only entry into Bob's Sci-fi Braaiiinnss!!! contest, so there are no plans to develop these characters further!
  4. AG - Octan Corporation Meeting Room

    All my monies to Bob!
  5. Location: H06 - Farmolis Tags: Technology Currently, aboard the Axle... What are you working on? I'm composing an email, Eshey. In light of what we've recently accomplished, I wanted to thank all our hard working coworkers. Of course. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Dear all employees in Octan's Andromeda Galaxy Division, This is your chief operating officer, Pombe. I know right now, as I compose this email, all of you are going about your routine and handling your various assignments. I write this because we have reached a momentous occasion and I wanted to share my thoughts with you. We set out almost two years ago into the unknown: a new galaxy. And through our dedication and hard work, the Andromeda galaxy is now known. From our adopted home planet of Farmolis, we explored system by system and discovered new lifeforms, new technologies, and new exciting ways to generate a profit for Octan. It was long journey, and I am so proud to have done it with such an amazing and talented group. There were many stories of incredibly long hours, homesickness and depression, experimental disasters, and tragedies of lost friends and companions. Despite these setbacks, we never stopped driving forward. I have read stories of brand new spaceships and land vehicles, new friends and alliances, heroic adventures, new romances, and even the return of those we believed lost. In the end, we created something even greater than we could have possibly imagined at the beginning; we created something awesome. And just as we changed Andromeda, Andromeda has changed us. Andromeda has shown us new ways to look at things and allowed us to imagine the impossible. From the harvesting of space whale poop to building ships that can sail the stars, nothing is off limits to us. If we can see it in our mind's eye, we can and we will accomplish it. That is not to say that we were alone or that only Octan accomplished the incredible. I want to take this moment to acknowledge our competition, the corporations of Kawashita and M.A.N.T.I.S.. Any business person worth hiring knows that corporations need each other. While we do compete for sales in the same markets and do our best to steal market share from each other, we also buy and license products from each other. No one corporation owns all the intellectual property necessary to complete many products, and just as there are Octan parts in Kawashita and M.A.N.T.I.S. products, there are Kawashita and M.A.N.T.I.S. parts in Octan products. I have been in these debriefings, and when your parts are in the other corporations and their parts are in you, you understand why these intercorporate relationships are vital. And don't forget: depending on the job application and hiring process, any one of us could have been working for a different company. In fact, my own dear sister works for our rival, M.A.N.T.I.S., as does Dr. Long's. Anyways, I wanted to share with you my pride and reflect on what we've achieved, and I believe it's time to wrap up this email. I have asked Hombre to start gathering all the employees for a group photo. The time and the conference room should show up on your calendar once you receive this email, in case Hombre misses you. Afterwards, we will begin a new chapter. In fact, I have already put all the awesomnium we have gathered to its actual purpose. I hope that all of you will continue to enable Octan to beat analyst expectations and that we will continue to see our employee bonuses and Octan's stock price soar. Yours truly, Pombe ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Later... Now, after nearly 2 years, we can finally proceed to the next chapter. The next chapter? Yes, Eshey. We now have enough awesomnium to open the portal. A portal? Where are we going? Andromeda's Gates 2. What? You mean we're not at the end of the journey? Silly Eshey. Andromeda's Gates was never about where the journey leads you. It was about where you lead the journey. I see. Are you ready to continue the journey with me? Yes, I am, honey. Comments and criticisms are all welcome! I wanted to thank Bob and the rest of the Andromeda's Gates staff: Lady K, Narbilu, Big Sal, and EpsilonEta. I'm sure it was an enormous amount of work and effort, and I wanted you all to know that it meant very much to me. Andromeda's Gates solidly brought me out of my Nth dark age and spurred my imagination to build things I never thought I could and tell a story that...well...was certainly beyond anything I had ever thought of before this. It also brought me into contact with so many incredible builders and storytellers from whom I've learned so much. And though I am cheering on the accomplishments of the players of Octan that brought us to this victory with this final entry, I really want to also thank all the players from all the factions. Many inspirational builds and narratives came from builders and authors outside of Octan whose talent I can only ever dream of having. All together, we worked through nearly 90 weeks and 2000 MOCs. Thank you, everyone. I mean it. I hope all the players stick around and continue to build and tell stories in Andromeda's Gates 2. Finally, for those reading this but did not participate this time around, I want to invite you to join Bob and the rest of us in Andromeda's Gates 2 when it begins. It will be a rare opportunity to be able to tell a story fresh right as a game begins, and I hope you will take that opportunity to share your MOCs, your stories, and your vision with the rest of us.

  7. Personnel Files: Previously, http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?/forums/topic/139781-sone-ep-xiiii-e10-commendation/.... Currently, in the city of Harnaidan on Muunilinst... Just so you know, I could order the driver to return and pick us up. There's no reason we should have to walk there. The last time I was home was before I graduated from the academy, father. I just wanted to take our time and see the neighborhood. See? Here's a bank branch that mother used to oversee. <sigh> Your mother would have been proud of the both of you. I know, father. I miss her terribly. Though I was forced to recuse myself from the investigation, the Imperial ministry still keeps me updated on their progress out of courtesy. I suspect it was these Muuns. They would do anything to make a profit, and I bet that your mother discovered that they were illegally offering credit to those rebels during an audit. There's still no concrete evidence, father. We don't even have names. Any word from Sindeen? I haven't heard from your sister since she left Imperial forces to track down your mother's murderer. Such a waste, too. She was just promoted to captain and threw it away to become one of those bounty hunters. If only she were more like you and put more trust in the system. She was always too impulsive. Sometimes the system works too slow. Great. You're starting to sound like your sister. Speaking of throwing careers away, you do realize that I could have you reassigned to a more prestigious unit? This Razer Squad sounds like nothing but butchers. I'll find my own way, father. And now you sound like your mother. Anyway, father, let's move on. It would be a shame if they closed before we got there. Now you're in a hurry? I could order the driver... We just need to pick up the pace a bit, father. I never understood your fascination with this cafe. It's the only place around here that offers the blue milk drink I like so much. Come come, let's move on. Comments and criticisms are all welcome!
  8. [O - E10] Universal Laws

    Location: E10 - Traig IV Tags: land vehicle Dramatis Personae: Previously: http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?/forums/topic/147934-o-i06-the-wolf-of-wall-street/ Currently, on Traig IV... Wow...so...we finally merged. This build is recycled Yes, yes we did. I guess this was the logical conclusion to things. I wonder why it took so long to happen? You weren't ready until recently. It took a long time for your eyes to finally open. But I get it now. By the way, I have something to show you; my latest land speeder. Oh? It takes advantage of one of the universal laws to both save energy and save animals that would otherwise be euthanized. And which universal law is this? The one that states that cats must always land on their feet. Come, let me show you. So we rescue cats from animal shelters and offer them employment where they are attached by their feet to the bottom of our land speeders. Because these cats can no longer land on their feet, the land speeder is perpetually suspended from the ground, thus saving both energy use from anti=gravitational units and the lives of cats in the overcrowded animal shelters. This is genius, Eshey. The ride is surprisingly stable and smooth. Initial tests with just one or two cats resulted in very unstable platforms for the ride. Our results suggested that three cats were optimal for stability and a smooth ride. I'm so proud of you, Eshey. You've come a long way. This is all thanks to you, for opening my eyes. Comments and criticisms are all welcome!

You look happy, ma'am. As I should. Natco's initial public offering has gone gangbusters. You, Tracy, and myself are now gajillionaires. We're rich? Not just rich, Peyton. We are evilly rich, moohoohaha! And now, with this evil Wolf-Chicken-Walker mech, we shall crush Octan once and for all! Now, we shall head to Octan's hidden base! Yes, ma'am! Meanwhile... Beautiful Man, thanks for coming. I need to talk to you. Yes, sir. How can I help you? It regards your honey, Evilshey. The time has come for me to merge with her. I understand, sir. The truth is that she will never accept me as her honey. To fill the hole in my heart caused by this realization, I've been consoling myself with Ishmael's physical affections. I do not mind, at all. In fact, please keep consoling yourself with my physical affections. Thank you, Ishmael, I'll do that. Anyway, sir...Evilshey was never mine. If you can win her heart, then by all means, merge with her. I appreciate this, Beautiful Man. <blam blam blam> Sir! We're being attacked! Right on time. Outside... ATTACK!!! Yarrrrr!!! <door hisses open> Alright, stop this attack. Oh crap! It's Pombe! His skill with his sword is legendary! Peyton, don't fear this man. Afterall, he has no control over us! Actually...I do. What?! See, Evilshey, your evil plot had an evil flaw. You had an IPO. No...you couldn't have! Yes I did! I bought enough shares to have a controlling interest. No!!! And now, Evilshey...it is time we merged. You mean Octan and Natco? Yes, but not just the companies. It is time for you and I to merge, as well. You mean like Voltron? Yes, and I will form the head. I see. Comments and criticisms are all welcome!

  13. Dramatis Personae: This is an entry for Mardier. Previously, Currently, in an undisclosed location... I was not sure you would come. There are those of us in Eslandola who profit more from peace than war. I received your message and have come to see if we can start working towards a more...political...solution. Just know that before we begin, my masters have orders to escalate the conflict should something untowards happen to me. I have come with no other agenda than to try to find common ground...a way such that both sides can win and save face. I am glad to hear of it. Now, there are some concessions Mardier would like, but in exchange, we are prepared to offer... RUN AWAY!!! What? Oof! Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!!! <splat> Come back here! I love you, Alois! You will be mine! Ah crap. Comments and criticisms are all welcome!

I'm sorry our CSO, Tracy, could not be here on your first day. She is busy meeting with our evil investors. I understand that start ups are pretty hectic and busy, ma'am. I'm sure I'll get to meet her in due time. Of course. In any case, here is your first assignment. I'd like you to field test this evil tank drone. It responds to voice commands, so use this walkie-talkie. It has been programmed to only respond to the voice signatures of Natco employees...you know, for security reasons. But ma'am, I don't understand. Didn't you hire me for my skill with a sword? I did indeed. Tell the evil tank drone to "transform". Transform. <mechanical sounds> See? Now it has a seat. Go ahead, get in. Yes, ma'am. Now, you can command the tank to drive up to our enemies so you can hit them with your sword. Genius, ma'am. Absolutely evil genius. Yes...and this is just the beginning. With our evil technology, we will crush Octan...moohoohaha... Comments and criticisms are all welcome!
