  1. Late September 619, Infero Pordejon, a open market in Charlatan Bay Lowtown The Keegan treaty seemed like it had been only yesterday but in reality it had been almost two whole months since Keegans men had joined the ranks. Lowtown had been taken back through many skirmishes. The all that remained had been pushed back to a reinforced line on the road to the Fort. Gustaf's Men now grossly outnumbered Tristan's volunteers and uniforms were commissioned from one of the local skilled tailors. This was done to necessitate a grand boost in moral and to create unity amongst the men as this civil war had been dragging on for the better part of a year now. Other changes could be noticed as well. Over the past week a Platform had been constructed .... The last time a similar platform had been seen in the settlement had been directly following the Dark Bishops reign. This platform was more intimidating though as a Large heavy blade was suspended over a stock. The talk that surrounded its purpose was that heads would roll once the fort was recaptured. It was also constructed in one of the open markets in the center of Lowtown. This was a bold statement as the governmental seat was in Hightown. Gustaf made his presence known in Lowtown with regular patrols with drummer and color guard always in step. Here you can see as Gustaf leads the a platoon past Arnesto the Smithy and the guillotine platform. The markets are also well stocked once again since the supply ships are now fairly regular. Fresh foods and even some preserved can be easily purchased from the Market Stalls. Medicines can be purchased from The Gypsy Woman providing you let her read your Tarot. Even Bru-HaHa is making its way to the settlement again. All that was left was the final push to the Fort. Surely supplies in the Fort were dwindeling as they had been cut off from thier supply ships as Gustaf had managed to beat the rebels to the Bells by sailing around the reach of San Millars' guns instead of the long jungle path through the gorge the rebels had tried. With the control of the Hidden Battery and Hells Bells the rebel smugglers lost many ships until they were snuffed out. Comments and Criticisms welcomed!

    Ye Olde BoBS Drinking Hole

    I completely agree as far as depth ... 4 days a week for the entire year no breaks is just starting ... but it was extreamely well put together. We covered history, founding, beliefs, organization, worship, afterlife stance and how to get there. It was not every known religion but the "majors" at the time (13 years ago). I by far would not claim to be an expert on any religion ... Even the two I grew up with. However I feel I have a good understanding on how and what the ones we studied believe and why.

    The odd thing about most religions if you strip away all the fat is they all for the most part consider one being to be supreme and in some way you should pay tribute to it. Even in the case of multiple "gods" there is still one supreme. I took a year long class on religions several years ago. The instructor said if your not comfortable in your faith then dont take this class because of the depth we studied all the major religions. Part of the course was we attended the religious functions (for-goed a couple of the cults). It was a major eye opener as to how similar and starkly different religions are.

    [LOGO] It's a WIP 2.0

    To me the BoBS text is a little hardto read on mobile ... It blends in due to the blue and red ... Perhaps a lighter shadow behind the text?

    Civilization is Returning

    Thank you . . . its all in the details they say. Yes the figs took as long as the builds did lol. Also the militia is the same faces for a reason ... Thats one thing they want is uniformity so I play it up when I do militarys lol Thank you ... I've used the designs in other builds but fleshed them out more here then before. Those are actually parasol tops you can do this out of LDD. Install a 2x2 round with axle hole inside the barrel bottom. Then the 2L axle. Then install the parasol into the axle!
