    [O - H06] Octansoft Store

    Location: H06 Farmolis Tags: Civil Building Previously... // PERSONAL DIARY // Raylan was really enjoying his visit to Farmolis. He said that it was nice to be able to visit other planets and see the different sights. He seemed very excited when I mentioned that there were several Octansoft stores in downtown Farmolis and that they had all the latest items available. And luckily being an executive I get a special discount of 5%, unlike the usual 2.5% discount for other employees. And since I have an Octansoft credit card I get an extra .5% discount! Although the folks in accounting do say that taking a discount isn't quite stealing from the company, but it does take money away from the company that it would otherwise use to pay hard workers such as myself. So I usually don't use the full discount. I took him to the one nearest to us and he was very excited to see all the various Individual Personal Assistant Devices and other electronics. It was neat getting to see the various assistant robots too, Dr. Allison was most intrigued by the child sized model as it was brand new. I was surprised they had a chauffeur-bot in stock since there was a new version that everyone was going crazy for. I have to say it was a bit weird seeing some of the "fashion" that exists for the younger generation these days. Whatever neo-hip style they seem to be wearing just looks strange. I was a little embarassed to have Raylan see them as I felt it reflected poorly on Octan. But I think he was distracted by the various Octansoft offerings to not have noticed them too much!

    [M - B05] Mission G3B05

    Location: B05 Marphacia Tags: Land Vehicle, Spying So what information are we trying to get out of them sir? We need to know if they detected the massive explosion we caused the other day. If the Kawashita seismology lab didn’t detect the explosion, we’ll know the GATE field expanded ahead of the explosion and stopped the information leaking out. If so, we have a functioning cloaking device, we'll just have to fine tune the stabilisers. Couldn’t we just ask them if they detected it? No! If we just ask them if they’ve detected any explosions recently, they’ll know we’re up to something. We have to persuade them to tell us, preferably without even realising we’re from M.A.N.T.I.S. That’s why we’re in this Kawashita boat! Exactly. And it has to be a row boat so it doesn’t upset their seismology instruments. No point annoying them before we even get there. And you have to be here to do the rowing… I see the lab sir! Good work Stevens, bring us in. Now, this is probably going to take a lot of natural charm and quick wits, and you don’t have a persuadomatic spy suit, so let me do all the talking. It could be very difficult to get the information out of them, so prepare to witness some incredible spying. Yes sir! Ok, here goes. I guess I’ll knock on the door. This is going to be very difficult, so you’re going to have a great story about my awesome spy skills to tell your friends. Oh my… can it be true? Are you real? I haven’t seen anyone since I was posted here back in Julali! I’ve been so bored – there’s not been a single seismic event the whole time I’ve been here! Well… that was easy. Uh, sorry guy, we must have the wrong lab. Best be off! No, no, come in and have a drink, I insist! Do you like tea? I love tea! Wonderful! Come on in! I’ll just put the kettle on! This is so exciting! Damn it Stevens! Oh, I’ve been so lonely here. I’ve only had my plants to talk to, and they never say anything back. Guess that makes sense though. There are lots of sentient, communicative plant species in Andromeda actually! That’s what I told them! But they’re still giving me the silent treatment! Oh boy… Right, well, thanks for the drinks, we’d best be going. What?? No! Please don't leave, I’ve been so alone! And besides, I’ve made some food for us to share. It would be a shame if you had to leave before you try it… you could have all sorts of ‘accidents’ if try to you leave on an empty stomach… *Gulp* OK, OK! We’ll stay for some food, sure, no need for any 'accidents'… Oh, how wonderful! I’ll just go get it! Damn it Stevens, why couldn’t you keep your mouth shut?? This guy’s a lunatic! Sorry sir! Hopefully he’ll let us leave if we eat his food. I hope it’s not anything weird, or we might have to make a run for it. Fresh sushi! Made with local ingredients! … … ... Quickly Stevens! Come back! --- Thanks for reading! C&C welcome! I have to confess that I straight up stole the roof design from Bushido - Way of the Warrior by Disco86, which is one of my all time favourite MOCs. Hopefully Disco86 won't mind, as a fellow M.A.N.T.I.S. player

    [O - H06] Visiting Farmolis

    Location: H06 Farmolis Tags: Land Vehicle Previously... // PERSONAL DIARY // After having several productive days getting to know Raylan on Forring, I had decided that to further improve the relationship between our two corporations I should invite him to Farmolis. Initially he was a bit apprehensive as there was a certain amount of worry that there could be some nefarious reason for wanting to get him to our home planet. But after more discussion and assurances he finally agreed to pay a visit. Upon his arrival I picked him up from the spaceport in one of our luxury corporate transports and had ED-208 drive so I could concentrate on our guest. As we drove around the city I was able to point out various landmarks and talk about all the things Octan was doing. Raylan was excited to hear and he found numerous areas that our two corporations could successfully collaborate. I'm excited to show him around further! Extra Pics: Oops, just noticed I forgot to update the planet in the title. Should be H06, got so used to F03 I forgot it wasn't there...

    [O - H06] Pipe Dreams

    Tags: Land Vehicle, Civil Structure, Science Planet: H06, Farmolis "I feel a malaise has grown within myself. This static life does not suit me in the least. It's not enough. I need... more. I want... more...." Pipe Dreams by Danny-Longlegs, on Flickr "I despise standing still in the fast lane. I've been on sabbatical since I was retrieved from my imprisonment on F03's Forring... obviously this was not optional. A slew of tests were conducted upon me... to determine the cause of my memory loss... to determine whether I'd been implanted with any spyware, biological or technologically based. All tests showed negative. I had been drugged nightly with an amnesia inducing compound, and my drone had been hacked. End of story. The remainder of the investigation must take place outside a lab, if my captors are to be brought to justice. And to those ends I have enlisted the assistance of one of my most trusted, and loyal colleagues. I hope he can find those responsible... and ... perhaps even... dare I mention... the object I've seen... only in dreams of that place... the enclosed place... the hexagonal walls... the map. The key... no... I refuse to deal in fantasies and illusions. There are concretes. I was detained. There is someone responsible for that. I await Dr. Edris's message." "Waiting. It sickens me. Like stagnant water, it breeds pestilence of the mind. I've written and published two books over the course of my stay (one, "a Guide to Andromeda's Xenobiology; When, Where, and How to Apply Xenobiological Principles," and an informal discussion on the implications of human science in the Andromeda Galaxy, "The Modern Darwins"). and, I've taken a course on Kawashita technological advances... but it's not enough. I yearn to be surrounded by activity and scientific discovery... but I have not been able to leave Farmolis, or attend to my duties upon the Axle--Doctors orders." Pipe Dreams by Danny-Longlegs, on Flickr "And so every morning at exactly 7:00 am, I get my exercise in--Doctor's orders. I ride my bike on the maintenance access road of the South Grid Pipeline. It runs from Farmolis City (also known as Farmolis Headquarters City) to Texicana Station. In the early days, Farmolis Headquarters City performed all aspects of Awesomnium production: Extraction, Purification, and Shipping... but now Farmolis city has taken on a more Administrative role, and serves as the planet's port city, and center of Octan colonization in Andromeda. Texicana Station is the primary purification site, and so, this pipe channels a constant stream of pure, fuel-grade Awesomnium to Farmolis Headquarters' Shipping district. These access roads run the whole length, as does the canal of naturally occurring liquid Awesomnium... but I'm not riding nearly that far. Just as far as Kilometer Marker 17. At approximately 7:45 am, I arrive at this point and begin riding back... but not before I indulge my intellect a little." Pipe Dreams by Danny-Longlegs, on Flickr "Kilometer marker 17 is placed in the thick of Farmolis' s famous farming district. The densest packed, most nutritious, strongest, GM EthiCORN ™ is grown here. The fields stretch to the horizon, and are almost entirely regulated by machines, who conduct all the hydration, pesticide dispersal, harvesting, etc... it's deliciously efficient.... however, on my daily rides, I've noticed a local specimen of Xenobotanical nature that seems to have developed an immunity to Octan's pesticides... it is an interesting find; a novel xenobotanical specimen on the planet longest occupied by our force. Life finds a way, as they say." Pipe Dreams by Danny-Longlegs, on Flickr "I've been recording it's growth patterns. It grows swiftly, and seems to seek increased hight, as it has begun to wrap around the power pole beside the canal. I lack a Logbook, so I've devoted this data to a simple recording device I purchased in the interim. When I escape this sisyphean sabbatical, I will add this specimen to the Axle's databank. Then, perhaps we can devise a pesticide capable of exterminating it." Pipe Dreams by Danny-Longlegs, on Flickr "Soon. Soon I will be aboard my beloved Axle, and all these planets to which we've gained access will yield their rewards. Within our grasp, these worlds will be investigated and examined. We will catalog the soil components. Capture and tag the wildlife. Extract and analyze the flora. All will be perfectly understood, and by understanding, we will control, and exert our will upon the natural world in perfect efficiency. For profit." Pipe Dreams by Danny-Longlegs, on Flickr "There is science to be done. And I will be back to it... very soon now, I think." Pipe Dreams by Danny-Longlegs, on Flickr (Sorry for the short novel. Hopefully it provides a little insight into Dr. Long's motivation. Also, I have more pictures. I just haven't edited them yet. They'll be up before the deadline. Pics up!) ~Insectoid Aristocrat
  7. Location: F03 Forring Tags: Land Vehicle, Space Vehicle Previously... // PERSONAL DIARY // As I was conversing with Professor Fizzlebottom on one of the above ground landing platforms the Farr-tes use I received quite the shock when a Mantis pilot stepped out of a spacecraft and began talking to Dr. Grenouille-Cheveux. As it turns out Octan wasn't the only corporation to have interaction with the Farr-tes. Apparently Mantis was providing fuel to the Farr-tes at barely above cost to help them with all the people they take in. Despite being such a militaristic corporation, Mantis apparently saw the benefits the Farr-tes and their more peaceful, inclusive society offered. I was introduced to the pilot, Raylan Givens, and he seemed very nice. I asked about his spaceship since it hardly seemed standard Mantis issue. Apparently it was his personal ship and he had recently completed an engine upgrade. Where before his ship was a comfortable cruiser, he had removed the original engine and fitted it with a Mantis Class B cargo hauler engine which more than tripled the power. He said it made getting around a rather fun ordeal now. I was surprised that a logistical supply officer would personally oversee the transfer of the fuel canisters, but he said that it gave him a break from sitting behind a desk. The Farr-tes hover truck was sleek looking and I was surprised that it looked so sporty. Professor Fizzlebottom explained that they based a lot of their vehicles around a common design and altered it based on need. This one was made narrow to allow for use underground where space was an issue and that it could either be used to carry heavier loads as it was currently, or if it was lightly loaded it could achieve high speeds as a speeder. An impressive solution to the need for different purposes in their vehicle fleet. Raylan summed it up when he said: "They are a most clever bunch, we learn from them constantly." Dr. Grenouille-Cheveux then suggested we all go have a meal together and continue to learn more about each other. Extra Pics: Hover truck and hover cargo mover Raylan's Ship Functional Landing Gear!

    Location: F03 - Forring Tags: Spaceship Dramatis Personae: Previously: http://www.eurobrick...howtopic=132578 Currently, on Forring... Let me get this straight: you want to register for the Kawashita Underground Racing Circuit? That's right. You know that Kawashita and the Dust Demons aren't exactly on friendly terms, right? Is she saying that we aren't good enough for their fancy racing club? I think she's too scared to race against us. Shut up, you two! Ignore them. If Kawashita has an issue with us Dust Demons, let's settle it by racing. I don't know. What do you think, Sue? I say why not? First, you need more racers after Ishmael scared most of your regulars off. Second, this is illegal underground racing, anyway. Yes, yes, I know Kawashita makes money off the registration fees and takes a commission on the gambling, but if the Space Police ever busted you, Kawashita would disavow any knowledge of this. So it's not like this is some sort of formal agreement between Kawashita and the Dust Demons. That's true. So your answer is? Alright, here are the forms. Be sure to have your credits ready. Did you bring your ride? It's right here. Alright, get ready. You'll be racing in heat 16. Let's go, boys. Captain, be careful. Show 'em who's boss, Captain! ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ YES!!! YESSS!!! WHEW...FAPPIE...LET'S DO IT AGAIN!!! Yes, Master... Comments and criticisms are all welcome!

    [M - B05] Experiment G2B05

    Location: B05 Marphacia Tags: Land Vehicle, Science Note to judges: Only the scenes with the swamp speeder should be judged, the rest re-use my build from last week. I’m just worried after what happened last time. Ah, but last time we didn’t have the expert advice of Ensign Stevens. He’s part of Moose’s team so he’s up to date with all their latest findings. Isn’t that right, Stevens? Err, well… Excellent! Plus, I’ve completely redesigned the stabiliser architecture. Speaking of which, where the hell is Redsyn with the last stabiliser? I’ll give him a call. Redsyn! Where are you? I'm having a little difficulty with the natives. Well, hurry up, will you? I’m getting bored here. Yeah, I’ll try. Some time later… ...and I usually play as Mitgardia. Redsyn! What’s the hold up? Trouble with the locals. Still?! Different ones this time. Unbelievable. Right, let’s just go ahead with three stabilisers. What?? It’ll be fine. We almost had it right last time with four stabilisers, but these new ones are a lot stronger. We could probably even manage with two. What do you think, Stevens? Err, well… Exactly! Norton, activate the stabilisers. Activating stabilisers! Sal, I just did some calculations, and going from fourfold to threefold stabilisation symmetry is likely to decrease the discontinuity threshold by at least seven orders of magnitude! Good point! Norton, only initialise the GATE drive once Stevens and I are a safe distance away. I promised Moose I’d get Stevens back to him in one piece. Wait, what?? Initialising GATE drive! --- To be continued! Thanks for reading, C&C welcome! The build below is the new stuff for this week. More pics of the speeder in the spoiler.

I've been planning a return since last year, waiting for the proper time, and VK gave me a kick in the pants when he sent me a PM awhile ago! Ah, a year went by so fast. Hope to get back in the game again. Time to go dust off the rest of my AG figures! And although I haven’t been here for a while, I’d just like to thank all of the people who supported my builds last year, and helped create the story. All in all. Happy Birthday Andromeda’s Gate! ~Beltar

    [O - F03] A Friend Returns

    Location: F03 Forring Tags: Land Vehicle, Space Vehicle, Civil Building, Science Previously... // PERSONAL DIARY // While Dr. Allison and I were taking a tour of one of the Farr-tes advanced scientific research facilities we were awaiting the return of ED-208. He had received a full overhaul and we were told to expect him via one of the mini-ships Octan uses for robot delivery. The ships aren't very spacious and lack food and restrooms, but they are very efficient and reusable. The lab was very advanced and had access to vast computing power. In one of their experiments they were superheating Awesomnium into a gas to see how it behaved and then were going to try combining that with other elements to see what the result was. Mike was working in the small updraft lab which prevented any vapors from escaping without being hermetically sealed. They weren't running any experiments at the moment so he was able to show off the lab and the various features. I'll definitely have to make sure we get some like this installed on the Axle!

    [O - F03] Going Blind

    Location: F03 - Forring Tags: Spaceship, Land Vehicle Dramatis Personae: Previously: http://www.eurobrick...howtopic=131872 Currently, somewhere on Forring... So you bought him an Octan personal assistant? Yeah, I was thinking of a way I could keep him from being lonely while I was away, running the Kawashita Underground Racing Circuit. I heard the Octan CLAPPIE was a popular model, but you were all sold out. So you bought him a FAPPIE? I'm sort of regretting that now. He doesn't seem to want to spend as much time with me anymore. You do know that FAPPIE stands for "Friendly Assisting Personal Pleasuring Indecent Entertainer", right? Sure. I just wanted something that would remind him of me while I was gone, you know? ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Meanwhile, at "Guns" on Forring... Would Master like it if I felt his guns again? YES FAPPIE!!! MASTER WANTS YOU TO FEEL HIS GUNS!!! The build above is recycled and should not be judged. And afterwards, would Master like to play another game of "joystick"? YES!!! MASTER WOULD VERY MUCH LIKE THAT, FAPPIE!!! ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Meanwhile, a Dust Demon ship approaches Forring... Captain, we've arrived at Forring. You're sure the Kawashita operative is here? This is a long way from Kawashita space. Yes, Captain. Our spies have followed her here. Then prepare the crew. Yes, Captain. Comments and criticisms are all welcome!

    [M - B05] Experiment G1B05

    Location: B05 Marphacia Tags: Science Are you sure this will work? Oh, yeah, totally. Moose’s team has been messing around with this stuff for a while. They’re off testing it out near Donwarr as we speak. You mean it hasn’t been tested yet? Uh… it probably has? I kinda just skimmed Fields’s notes: superpositions, n-dimensional singularities, certain death, blah blah blah. Anyway, I figured if we can create a stable hollow GATE field around a ship, the field should transport all incoming or outgoing signals through the GATE, meaning that the ship will be undetectable. But couldn’t we wait until Moose’s team has finished their tests first? And let them get all the credit? No chance! GATE stabilisers equalised at 100% Sal. Excellent. Ok, you ready Walker? I guess…? Ugh, it stinks here Sal. Why did we have to do this in the middle of a swamp on a planet we haven’t even settled yet? Blame Chief Accountant Long. I wanted to do this on Torresta but Long got all upset about it just because the risk assessment said there was a small chance of a catastrophic Rhumkopf discontinuity. She insisted we do it out here where no one will notice if we implode a continent. What was that?! Nothing! Fire it up! It worked! We can’t see her! Err… but shouldn’t we not be able to see the GATE drive too? Hmmm… Switch off the drive and see if she comes back. Nooo! Where is she?? Calm down. She probably ended up in a parallel universe or something. I’m marking this down as a success! What?? Well, the aim was to make her undetectable. Norton, can you detect her? Er… no… Exactly! Success! Now, who wants to go next? Thanks for reading! C&C welcome! Make sure you check out the spoiler

    [O - F03] Space Madness

    Location: F03 Forring Tags: Land Vehicle, Space Vehicle, Civil Building Previously... // PERSONAL DIARY // The Aeolus recovered the Octan ship and were able to retrieve the pilot. Sadly the pilot wasn't in great shape. Physically he seemed relatively ok, but mentally he was struggling. As an executive of Octan I was quite concerned with his health and safety, Dr. Allison seemed interested in him as a test case. Based on logs we determined his name was Joel Zimmerman, however, all he would say is "Can you hear the screams?" The Farr-tes said it seemed likely that he had developed a minor case of Spontaneous Space Madness. They said that with some sedation and rest he would most likely be fine. Luckily they had human medical knowledge and a facility on planet that could help him. We have already been fortunate to have an alliance with them! Extra Pics:
  18. Location: F03 - Forring Tags: Spaceship, Land Vehicle, Civil Building Dramatis Personae: Previously: http://www.eurobrick...howtopic=130763 Currently, above Forring... I can't wait for you to meet him, Sue. He's totally, totally dreamy. He must be one heck of a guy. Oh, he totally is! He's so smart. And he's so cool and trendy. He always wears these super awesome glasses and he's replaced all his natural teeth with 24 karat gold ones. Even his hair is cool. His hair says he's all business in the front, and all party in the back. And boy does his front mean business and his back mean party.... Wow! But best of all, his arms...his arms...are just...his Shaniqua, is there a reason we're heading to Forring? Shouldn't we be heading to Kawashita space? Oh, he's a M.A.N.T.I.S. employee. I see. Anyways, we'll land over here and take a speeder the rest of the way. His work is just a short drive from here. There it is. He sells weapons? Not quite. Anyways, we're here. Come, come, come! I can't wait to introduce you! Alright, alright. I've never seen you so giddy before. Sue, this is my boyfriend, Alan Bobby Johnny. Alan Bobby Johnny, this is my former commander, Sue. Alan Bobby Johnny runs this M.A.N.T.I.S. fitness club here on Forring. Nice to meet you, Alan Bobby Johnny. You have three first names? THAT'S RIGHT! BECAUSE WINNERS COME IN FIRST! AND I'M THREE TIMES A WINNER! ONLY LOSERS HAVE NAMES THAT COME IN LAST! I'M THINKING ABOUT ADDING A FOURTH FIRST NAME TO BECOME FOUR TIMES A WINNER! Isn't he dreamy, Sue? I'm happy that you're happy, Shaniqua. DO YOU SEE MY GUNS?! DON'T YOU WANT TO TOUCH MY GUNS! LOOK AT THESE GUNS! I DON'T MIND IF YOU WANT TO TOUCH THEM! I WANT TO TOUCH THEM ALL THE TIME! TOUCH MY GUNS! I', am too intimidated by your guns to touch them. I UNDERSTAND HOW YOU FEEL LADY! I GET INTIMIDATED BY HOW AWESOME THEY ARE, TOO! BUT I STILL WANT TO TOUCH THEM! I HAVE DAYS WHERE I'M PARALYZED BY THIS DILEMMA! Thank you for understanding. I'm sure it must be difficult. So...have you ever considered adding "leg days" to your routine? WHAT'S A LEG DAY?! ARE YOU OVER YOUR INTIMIDATION, YET? DO YOU WANT TO FEEL MY GUNS?! Comments and criticisms are all welcome!

    [O - F03] An Unexpected Surprise

    Location: F03 Forring Tags: Land Vehicle, Space Vehicle, Civil Building, Science Previously... // PERSONAL DIARY // We were taken to the Farr-tes main engineering research facility on Forring to see some of their newest projects. It was an exciting time as we were given complete access and were able to ask any questions we wanted. The Farr-tes are a very open and forthcoming people, they really don't hold back. Dr. Allison was looking at one of their new energy producing units that is still under construction. She seemed very impressed and I could see from the twinkle in her eye that many new ideas were forming. I can't wait to hear what she came up with. She had already seen their mobile graviton detection "cart". It was on a track that lead to an isolation room which allowed for the sensitive equipment to more finely tune into detecting the particles. I was being given a chance to look over their magnetic impulse engines used primarily in smaller vehicles. Because they were non-polluting it meant that they were best suited for their underground existence. The power output was strong, but the main draw was the instant high-torque. Even the waste heat was fairly small and easily managed. One issue they were trying to overcome was that the units did malfunction sometimes and end up in a runaway situation. The good news is that the characteristic hum would suddenly get very quiet, so you knew it could get deadly if they went silent. Sadly our visit was cut short as we were notified that the Farr-tes Regional Transport Ship Aeolus had informed the local Farr-tes naval control that a distress signal had been detected from an Octan ship. We were given access to a communication device and the message was the standard Octan distress signal for our smaller ships: "Greetings, this automated message is from Octansoft on behalf of Octan Pilot. It appears there has been a problem and currently there are zero pilots able to command the ship. We are requesting your assistance in rendering aid. Thank you and have an Octan day!" Extra Pics:
  20. Location: C03 Torresta "Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to this airborne tour of the M.A.N.T.I.S. Volcanic Research Centre. I'm sure most of you arrived here today by taking the monorail east out to this outlying area of The Core. This volcano is one of many that provide geothermal power for The Core, and you can see two power stations at the foot of the volcano, to the west of the main landing tower. The pipelines you see leaving the power stations provide both power and water to settlements all over Torresta! To the east of the landing tower you can see a large building with four biodomes. This is where M.A.N.T.I.S. scientists use the natural underground heat to research rapid plant growth. One day soon you may be eating vegetables grown in as little as a few hours using techniques discovered here! The four buildings you see in a row at the front of the centre are various laboratories. On the roofs you can see amplified radar, solar panels, a greenhouse and a landing pad. These laboratories are personally overseen by Big Sal, M.A.N.T.I.S.'s Chief Scientist! Oh! Speaking of which! Look down on the platform of Volcano Monorail Station. Unless I'm very much mistaken, that's Big Sal himself, talking to an elderly lady. What a treat for you all!" Thanks for reading! Didn't think I'd have time for this, but managed to throw something together Unrendered version in the spoiler. C&C welcome!

    [Challenge 4][Cat B] Goldie

    One of the most frequently visited and photographed places on Farmolis is the main park downtown. It is mostly known as "The Park", but the official name is Octan's Spirit of Exploration Park. The park itself is lovely and the grounds meticulously maintained, but the attraction most people come for is Goldie. At least that is what the locals call him, he is an embodiment of Octan's vision to explore the universe and with his stern expression is ever looking forward. His spear points to where he is going, with his shield ever at the ready. The beautifully polished black lava rock provides a stark contrast to the gold. Below the base are windows into the water that provides life for the flowers that give a natural version of Octan's colors. Lit up at night it is visible from quite a ways off. The soothing sounds of nature surrounding Goldie provide for a nice environment to contemplate Octan's mission. Some have complained that the status is ostentatious and not a good representation of Octan's values, but I prefer to think of it as a shining beacon drawing ever more explorers forth to wonder what is out there. Our winged champion is on constant vigil for what is next.

    [Challenge 4] [Cat A] Early Mornings

    Sliding in before the deadline... Haven't had the time to build for AG recently, but I was pretty happy with how this turned out, especially since it only got started a few days ago! I would've liked to clean up/furnish the interior better, particularly to add a bed and TV, but that's life I guess. C&C welcome!

  25. Location: C03 Torresta I still don't see why we have to stop at this research centre of yours. I'm not interested in volcanoes. For the last time, Mom, I just need to pick something up from my flat upstairs. Then we'll get back on a train to The Core. Hmmmph. Alright, well, let's get on with it. No, you stay down here. I'll get someone to bring you a coffee and then I'll be right back down. Larry, get my mother a drink, would you? And do not let her come upstairs under any circumstances, ok? Yes sir! If I don't kill her by the end of her visit it'll be a miracle... Now, where did I leave that thing...? Here you go, ma'am. Our house speciality! Young man, there appears to be a large maggot in that drink. Yes ma'am! A fresh cup of larva java, on the house! ... ... ... ... ... It's very small in here. What the...? Damn it Larry! Your brother's flat is much larger than this. I already told you, this is just a crash pad for when I'm at the Volcanic Research Centre. I'm the First Branch Executive of M.A.N.T.I.S! I have an executive apartment in The Core, quarters on all our capital ships, and a whole mansion on Linopeia III! Yes, I was talking about your brother's crash pad on Earth. It's much bigger than this. What?? He can't possibly afford property on Earth! Oh yes he can. He's very successful. But he's never too busy to remember my birthday, unlike some people. Oh boy... His wife is lovely too. Isn't it about time you were getting married? Ugh, could this day get any worse?? Oh good, the coffee guy said you'd be up here. Damn it Larry! What do you want, Long? I just came here to tell you that you've been demoted to Second Branch Executive. Who's this? WHAT?! I'm his mother, unfortunately. Well, well, well... Your brother's never been demoted. It's just promotion after promotion for him, and... Sal, what the hell have you been eating? This looks disgusting. Oh, he's always eaten badly. I remember when I first took him to... Please let this be some kind of horrible dream... --- Thanks for reading! C&C welcome! The photos didn't come out quite as well as I wanted, but I've been at the Yorkshire Brick Show all day, and all day tomorrow, so they'll have to do. More below.
