  1. Welcome to BoBS and Eslandola, @The Neighborhood Merchant!! It's been way too long since we've got some fresh new members here - may the winds be always in your sails!

    [COR - FB] Fort Nithsdale

    Very nice fort, Spud! Interesting choice in having the ground tiled and the fort walls mostly bare - I think I'd like to see a little more texture on those, but this is definitely thinking outside the box! Your cannons are gorgeous though, and the polished interior looks very Corrie! Ohh, I feel quite sorry for you, that didn't go well! At least Spudkirk has got some lightning reflexes!
  3. Dawn at the Cathedral | Garmadon | Varlyrio
  4. Near Illyrian there lies an old a decayed cathedral from the days long ago when Varlyrio was still two separate islands and when the Chiaros ruled as Rego. However, it is not infrequently still used as a rendezvous by starlight or in the early hours of dawn by certain families... New build from me! Long overdue in GoH, but here it finally is (picture linked to topic)!

    Dawn at the Cathedral

    Previously - Mainhall Corridor, de Fiori Castle - Tergiversa Near the outskirts of Illyrian, the ruins of the abandoned cathedral of Sana Argentum rested in a silence so intense that one would have imagined that the old structure were slumbering in the sleep of death, save for a slight wind which whistled eerily at intervals through the old stonework as through a graveyard, and a few dim torches, flickering in the night air. Just as the dawn began to crack through the open arch at the entryway, the sound as of a impatient watcher might have been caught behind one of the main pillars, if there had been anyone to observe it. Suddenly the form of Falco de Fiori emerged, and he gazed intently through the entry to the cathedral. "They are coming!" he whispered, in a low and eager tone. A minute later low footsteps could be heard approaching, and two figures came to the archway, stopped, exchanged a whisper, and passed steadily through. The second was a stout and vigilant retainer, dressed in the royal colors - the first a grizzled man in a black hood, but still in his prime, his face one of strength and determination. As the two de Fiori brothers stepped out from behind the pillar he threw back his hood and revealed the unmistakable face of - the Rego. "Susto and Falco de Fiori," the Rego smiled - "Pray, and what was the reason you requested this untimely interview?" Susto took a step forward. "Well, my dear Rego, what if I were to tell you that it has been hinted that you have been being remiss in the performance of your duties? Quiet as it has lately been, their are many excellent families in the realm who have contributed to the prosperity of Varlyrio, but instead of encouraging and promoting them as a wise Rego ought, you have been only sitting upon your beds of ease and basking in their gold while they fade away and vanish, and the realm falls into the pit of oblivion. Take the Di Carlo family, for one - they almost single-handedly took the gold for Varlyrio under the Queen's latest challenge - though I do not say the de Fiori's approve of such royal whims - but what have your majesty done about the profitable efforts of our olive merchants? Nothing, nothing at all!" "So that is it, de Fiori, is it? Do you think I do not know that you yourselves have allied yourself with that family and only seek to benefit from any position I reward them with yourselves?" "He who has no friends," returned Susto coolly, "should not be the one admonishing those who do." "Well, there has never been much love lost between us, de Fiori - I can see no cause why I should tolerate your self-interested whims." "Is that so? There are ways in Varlyrio, you know, of seeing things done." Falco tapped his bare blade wisely. "I do not say a de Fiori would have much cause to make a move, but it is not an petty little family whom you have but now insulted. I shall take care that Luca di Carlo hears of what you think of him." Supano took a step forward, and his bodyguard moved so close behind him that Susto could feel him. "Do you threaten me?" Falco ran his hand through his hair and grinned. The Rego turned on his heels, looking back from the entranceway. "Take care, you sons of Fiori." The brothers looked at each other and winked, and before a minute had passed, as the first morning birds began to sing, the cathedral had once again been left to its wonted solitude. A couple more pics: This was my entry to the Ruins category of the Summer Joust, and it's been due here for way too long! Photography was quite challenging (and I did end up with a bit of the fish-eye effect), but was done entirely with natural light and except for one or two of the pics, no editing was done afterwards except for some cropping. Inspired by this picture by Charlie Bowater (at least, so I gathered from the signature, haha). Thanks for viewing, C&C are welcome as always!

    Prelude: What Lies Beneath

    Just wow! I've got to say, that black base was absolutely brilliant! The trees, flower buildings, and pathways have some great color for the subterranean caverns and really shine against the black Some great complex shaping in there too, especially with the main structure!
  7. !! For some reason I'm in love with that vig! Great use of those broken pieces, and that chair is fantastic too Hilarious story as well - I see you were trying to break the record for the use of the most words ending in -itude in the same sentence You're not posting it on Flickr, though?! I'd favorite it if you did!

    Galleon Esperanza

    Well, whoever said the stern was fantastic was totally right! A very nice ship, Legostone!
  10. Just do it! It's about time we get a little excitement in good old BOBS again
  11. Precisely! And thanks to you - always fun to help out with a Captain Braunsfeld story! Thanks Kai! The banana bunch technique was borrowed from one of the other banana plantations in BoBS (Elostirion's, I think). Haha, yeah, banana/palm trees are kinda capricious in my experience - the leaves either put themselves all right almost all by themselves or they don't, and there's not a whole lot you can do about it! That Gloogloo farm? Looking forward to it! Thanks Professor Thanks Ayrlego! I really like those blue flowers - gotta get some more of them sometime! (Well, some, actually, since these are Kai's ) As far as I know that'll be perfectly fine! @Captain Braunsfeld is the one running the story, so he can let you know for sure, but I don't think there should be any problem with that Sounds like an interesting investigation anyhow, looking forward to seeing it
  12. The Strange Stuff is continuing on Gunpowder Island! This time it's the monkeys and the ETWC setting up shop with the newly created cocorite bananas on the island... (Picture linked to topic)
  13. Something strange is going on... So far: Explosion on Gunpowder Island A Message Is Sent A Message Is Recieved At The Headquarters Encounter in the Jungle Don't Shoot Examination Subjects Meanwhile... In the Laboratory Never Alone A Scientific Breakthrough Air Strike A Surprise Reward ... Soon word of the delicious cocorite-enriched bananas of gunpowder island had spread like wildfire throughout the Brick Seas. Everybody wanted to get their hands on the exquisite bananas. The Queen of Corrington had even sent her special ambassador to bring a cargo of gunpowder island bananas back to the capital. Naturally, during the initial rush the bananas were going for quite a decent price... and so the General and Marquis set up shop. Merchants from all over the colonies, and even from the Old World, lined up for miles to purchase a cargo load of bananas. And while the General and Marquis run the operations, the always business-savvy ETWC has partnered with them to get in on the profits as well... I mean, well, somebody was going to have to climb those trees... One more pic: And there you've got my contribution to Captain B's Mystery Island story-line! Hope y'all have enjoyed this installment and the whole story - I know I have! Thanks for viewing, C&C are welcome!
  14. Ooh, looks like it wasn't exactly a wonderful month for pirates this times around (well, except for Montroy, [though we did sink one of his, I'll take it ] ...And for LeColeon... and a few Sea Rats. Alright, maybe not so very bad for anybody but Captain Nordau ). And we're back to the rowboat, it looks like! Well, this definitely deserves a MRCA result build anyhow - I'll definitely try to get one built for it!

    [Mystery Island 13] A Surprise Reward

    What Faladrin said! - I had to double check to see which one of you this really was Very nice installment in your story, and I like that Gloogloo in the background there...
