    Not exactly a Pirates set, but...

    NICE! This is an excellent parts pack. The flippers and surfboard are what I'm looking at, along with the harpoon and oar. Also, who can't use more barrels? Finally, shells...there's got to be something I can do with a lot of those... Thanks for the heads up!

    [MOC] NCS Surface Transport

    This MOC had been sitting on my desk for the better part of a year without being photographed, because I couldn't come up with a way I liked to display it. Then @soccerkid6 posts his beautiful Dwarven Ballistas in GoH and blew me away so much, I copied his terrain to present as the base of my MOC. A Castle MOC inspired a Space MOC? You bet. More pics below:

    Making Eurobricks More Active

    This is why we have moderators/regulators who can exercise discretionary authority. Each subforum has different levels of traffic that naturally will vary over time. In one week, subforum X may see 100 new MOCs, while subforum Y may only see 1, so one size will not fit all.
  5. The classic space red astronaut is Santa? Why not? Bad Blacktron! Pardon the horrible photo, but I won't have a chance to take better ones until after the deadline. Given that the awards are determined at random, I hope it's okay to replace the photo after the deadline with a better one.

    Making Eurobricks More Active

    From what I've read, it seems that AFOLs tend to visit EB for four things: 1) news (official stuff like images of upcoming releases, movie trailers, reviews and community stuff like contests) 2) discussions (includes speculation and wishlists, as well as non-LEGO related stuff) 3) MOCs (includes comics and brickfilms) 4) games (mafia, rpgs, etc.) yay! games! go play one now! Forgive me if I've missed a category. I don't think games need to be front paged, unless one is about to start where it can be treated like community news to inform members. Also, MOCs from games would fall under...MOCs... So I think a front page that balances news, discussions, and MOCs could help keep EB diverse and maintain all interests equally.

    Cyclops Hut

    I hope they team up to find their families. Maybe Irissa will learn how resourceful and dependable humans are and the humans learn that cyclops have the same values that they do and aren’t that different.
  8. I’m glad that people are enjoying the story. @Gabe @en_zoo Thanks for the criticism! I agree that the outside doesn’t match the interior. This was due to my lack of vision. I built the interior and dome first without knowing what the final building would look like or how I would connect them. Also I will focus on terrain for future MOCs. I’m only now understanding how the terrain gives a building some context.
  9. I love it when themes cross MOC genres. Especially great is that horse. I'm going out on a limb and guessing that he is making a knight piece for a giant chess board that will show up in another Kaliphlin MOC.
  10. Your WIP is incredible, but that's normal for you. I don't know if vines grow on rocks, but I do know they grow on houses and other plants, so I guess if they can find a foothold, they will just climb. However, given that it is immersed in water, some sort of plant/fungus/algae makes sense to have colonizing whatever surface it can find. I also agree with @Basiliscus in that the Nexo Knight shield looks out of place.

    Kaliphlin at Work - Day 10: Royal Dance

    This MOC has so many techniques for me to try, it will serve as a reference for years.

    Writing for Peace

    I never welcomed you to Kaliphlin, but I'm glad you joined us. Like others have said, incorporating the paper into the desk is extremely clever, and is an idea that I will likely steal for future MOCs.

    Gardar's Cloth Goods

    I've been looking for a way to improve on the look of cobblestones, and I wanted to thank you for the technique. As for everything else, what is normal for you is spectacular for me, so I have nothing more to say.
