  1. Account Summary

    A few days ago I licensed some properties that I built in Mesabi Landing, one was a medium artisan, one was a medium residence and the other was a small commerce. However in the form for the small commerce I accidentally put 'Lord Buckethead' as the settlement. Would it be possible to have it placed in Mesabi Landing or at least unlicensed so I can license it in Mesabi Landing. Thank you in advance.
  2. The incident at the railroad station had proven to Major Walsh that no local militia would be able to protect important assets in Mesabi Landing and so under her orders, Crown troops under the command of Captain McDowell were brought in for security. "I want no less than five troops on watch at the railroad station at a time, patrols up and down the railroad by the hour and all cargo being transported into the railroad station must be inspected thoroughly" said Major Walsh, "have you got that?' "Uhh, yes ma'm" spat Captain McDowell. "Good, from this point on I expect this railroad to be in working condition 24/7 with absolutely no interference from the WTC" replied Walsh. "Nothing is to prevent this project from being completed on time, not even the fools who are paying us to do it." "Of course ma'm, but if you dislike the WTC so very much why not just offload the project to someone else." "Because that is not how one earns a promotion Captain, unlike Fernsby I don't have the luxury of picking and choosing what and where I want to do something." said Walsh "I promise you, first chance I get I will be going back to Belson but I still have three more years of mandatory service." "Oh, I see" replied Captain McDowell. ________________________________________________________________ Once again thank you for viewing, this is the second part for @Drunknoks incentive. Both of the properties (an artisan and a residence) are to be licensed as mediums. For this build I attempted to mimic the style that @Mesabi has set for Mesabi Landing. I'm still unsure if I'm actually happy with the results so any suggestions for improvements would be much appreciated.
  3. With the discovery of coal in Mesabi Landing and the subsequent large-scale mining of it, it was decided that a new system of transportation was required to get the large amounts of coal from the mines to the settlement. After the successful implementation of the new and innovative railroad technology on Cocovia the choice was fairly obvious. The construction of this new railroad fell to the Royal Engineers who just so happened to be stationed in Mesabi Landing. Ordinarily they would have refused a job like this but they were being paid well for it. Fortunately this railroad was to be nowhere near the size of the one built on Cocovia and so it was a fairly quick project. Major Walsh was aware of the exploits of the WTC marines and was determined not to let them vandalize her latest project. To protect the railroad station she hired some trustworthy local men to form a small militia. While Major Walsh gives orders to the newly formed militia her subordinates whisper among themselves behind her. "Why are we actually building this railroad?" said one of the engineers "The WTC is openly using child labour and yet we still help them?" "Idiot, it's all about the money" replied the other. "Yes but morally it's..." before being interrupted by his colleague. "No one cares about morals, especially not in this place. We do what we do because we get paid for it, no further questions asked now shut up and get back to work." However the militiamen were unable to stop the WTC. __________________________________________________________________________ Thank you for viewing my latest builds in Mesabi Landing, this one is for last months incentive (with a residence to be posted tomorrow, I'm just tired at the moment). Any eagle eyed viewers will notice that this build is pretty much just a complete rip-off of @Ayrlegos Cocovia Wagonway build but he told me that the best way to improve is to imitate builders that you admire so it's justified (somewhat). The lavender version was just me being silly disguised as WTC shenanigans.CC would be much appreciated.
  4. "Mesabi Landing, you'll never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy" said one of the engineers as he looked valiantly into the distance. "Shut up!" replied Major Walsh as she smacked him over the head. "We'd best move fast if we don't want to get robbed" "Hey, the locals don't look that bad" added another engineer. "We just need to politely introduce ourselves". However as he approached one of the citizens he was yanked back by Major Walsh. "People here don't take kindly to servants of the crown" she told him "and in case you didn't notice they're handling weapons, so lest you want to be shot I would recommend leaving them alone" "I don't get it though, if it's so bad here then why have we been stationed here?" "Because the citizens of this settlement have been living tax free lives for too long, we're here to build them a tax office, or at least repair they're old one" replied Major Walsh. "But did they really need to send a whole company of us just for that? It seems like a pretty simple job" "It is, but there are also personal reasons for coming here, reasons that needn't be discussed at this point in time" said Major Walsh "Well I would say that those reasons should be discussed at this point in time, seen as you've dragged us to this ****hole because of them" Major Walsh smiled for a second and the replied with a quick and simple "No, they don't" ________________________________________________________________________________________ Thank you for viewing, this is just a small build to show my engineers arriving in Mesabi Landing (as you may have picked up from the title) which is relevant for some later builds. All CC would be much appreciated.
  5. Useful Pirate Pieces from other Themes?

    I did it myself and I would highly recommend that you do it too if you are able too, it looks amazing.
  6. Arlinsport Adviser (2,1)

    Very interesting @Mesabi, I find it strange though that the Sea Rats even have an income (however small it may be). Thanks for doing this up. Can we please not turn this into a pissing contest, I know that they started it but I don't really want to see another argument. Also keep in mind that @Drunknok isn't a native English speaker (or at least I don't think he is).
  7. [MMM] Merrynight Mystery Mini-Challenge

    Congratulations to all the winners and thank you @Drunknok for running this amazing minichallenge, I thought it was a great way to create some lore for the various religions and festivities of the Brick Seas and I had a lot of fun particiapating. Also thank you to everyone who voted for my entry, I really appreciate it, especially when there was so much great competition.
  8. In the Mountains of Celestia "Major....it's, it's...cold up here" stuttered one of the soldiers. "What are we even looking for?" added Captain McDowell "Yeah, how are we meant to find what we're looking for, if we don't know what we're looking for?" said the engineer Major Walsh, somewhat annoyed by the commotion her expedition was causing continued writing down her observations "And why in gods name are we on this boat?"exclaimed Captain McDowell angrily "Enough!" replied the Major, "when we find what we're meant to find you'll know it, and when we do you'll be glad your on this boat" The boat was quiet from then on out, no one dared interrupt the Major lest they wish to incur her wrath. "Stop!" declared Captain McDowell, ""Did you hear that, in the bushes." "Hear what?" replied Major Walsh. "In the bushes, did you not hear it?" added Captain McDowell. Major Walsh repeated herself, this time somewhat more annoyed. "Hear what?' Suddenly what appeared to be a large cat burst out of the bushes. Captain McDowell stumbled back, trying to keep his feet while the soldier jumped in the ice cold water trying to get as far away as he could from the beast. "Wha..Wha...What is that!" Screamed Captain McDowell. "We found it", interjected Major Walsh completely ignoring her counterpart. "It's going to attack!" cried Major McDowell. "Quick, get the gun" "It's not going to attack." replied Major Walsh. "And I swear, if you kill it I'll kill you myself, this could be a major scientific breakthrough for me" Captain McDowell grabbed the gun but did not fire it, a tense standoff ensued while the tiger just moved side to side but never removed its gaze from Captain McDowell. Suddenly the tiger leaped towards the boat and in the heat of the moment Captain McDowell discharged his weapon. The company watched the tiger sink to the bottom of the river as the water turned red. "You fool!" screamed Major Walsh. "Actually if you think about it, I did you a favour." replied Captain McDowell. "And how is that?" added Major Walsh trying to regain her temper Captain McDowell handed her the issue of the Jameston Chronicler that he had been reading moments before. The headline read Alcock and Co. discover Albino tiger. "We could be the first to dissect it." said Captain McDowell. ___________________________________________________________
  9. Corrington: Sign-up and Discussion, Era II

    So are we still expected to abide by these terms?
  10. Amazing entry, almost like the Russian nesting doll of MOCs, there's a smaller one in each one. The fly trap build is fantastic (both of them) and I love how it can be moved into a closed position. The fly builds are also very interesting.
  11. [COR - Era II - Challenge I - Cat. A] The Old Barracks

    Thanks. Thanks Ayrlego, I had seen the other white buildings in Jameston but for some reason I assumed they were Port Woodhouse builds. I wasn't too sure whether to keep the building clean or add some masonry bricks to make it feel dirtier. I chose clean because I didn't know how I would add masonry bricks to the round edges. I had a few of the Ninjago movie General torsos but I wasn't sure how useful they would be due to the..uh feminine curves. It wasn't until I saw it in a build by I think it was @Drunknok that I decide to use it. With the engineers I just gave them random heads from my collection so yeah I think one ended up with the head from Monster Fighters. Just to be crystal clear it is isn't Alcock, we want no more arguments about Role Play etiquette, right? Thanks ? Thanks BD, and who wouldn't love bananas for every meal of the day? They're a healthy snack with lots of nutritional value.
  12. Great part usage on the spider and are those BURPs, if so one can hardly tell so good job. Overall a fantastic entry, but I have to warn you, having just watched the Lego Ninjago Movie, cats are no joke!
  13. Captain MetalBeard

    May I ask how you came up with $190?
  14. [Era II, Ch IA - OL] - Looking for accommodation

    Really nice pair of buildings BD, my favourite has to be the tan one, that roof technique always looks great. I also really like those sailors, they remind my of updated versions of the classic sailors which I love (if only they were red).
  15. Absolutely fantastic Elos, I think you've nailed the Jameston style and all of the small details just make it pop. And what a lovely multi-national expedition, a Mardierian, a Terraversan and an Eslandolan, I look forward to seeing how this progresses. Though my favourite has to be The Doctor for obvious reasons. Great job!
