  1. Pineapples for Peace? After getting the field camp set up for the enlisted troops, Major Brickford and his aide set about making a campsite ready for themselves. After the tent had been put up, they decided to relax a bit after a long journey. Officers Field Camp 3 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr While the Major removed his sword and hat for evening, Anthony played a tune on his lute. In the background, a redheaded Highlander that they picked up in Spudkirk was busy happily cutting firewood. Officers Field Camp 4 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Then suddenly, out of the bushes came two men looking like quite scruffy! They looked like native hunters, but there was something very odd about them. Officers Field Camp 5 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Being on high alert for things like this, all there men sprang into action! Nathaniel quickly grabbed his sword prepared to fight to the death white the Highlander and Anthony reached for their guns. Officers Field Camp 6 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr The situation was quickly diffused when one of the natives quickly sheathed his machete and then bowed in front of Major Brickford. Only one word was spoken, "Peace", before they disappeared into the bushes once again. Officers Field Camp 7 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr All the men stood around their campfire dumbfounded asking just one question... what in the world had just happened? Officers Field Camp 8 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr ---------------------------------------------------------- My entry for category C! Technically on time and technically a bit late at the same time, hopefully leadership will see fit to let it slid in? Thanks for looking and C&C are welcome and appreciated! Overview of the whole build in the spoiler below
  2. The Glittering Caverns The Carnites keep a tight reign on their plans and discoveries on El Oleonda, however, recently some careless troops let a supposed discovery slip while drinking in a local pub in one of the fledging settlements. As the story goes, two scouts were on the hunt for a escaped Loti prisoner and got lost in the think jungle. Cave 1 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr In the wandering, they stumbled upon a cave and decided to take refuge for a short time before attempting to regain their bearings. Cave 2 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr As one solider lit his torch and climbed through the very narrow opening, he was surprised to find that his torch light was greatly magnified by all sorts of gemstone imbedded into the rock! The Carnite soliders had heard rumors of caves like this, but never in their wildest dreams would they have thought to see one in brick! Cave 3 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr All they knew is that their superiors would be most pleased with such a discovery! -------------------------------------- My entry for category B. It took me a long time to figure out what I wanted to do with this entry, but I'm quite pleased with the end result. I'm not fully satisfied with how I ended up attaching the stones as it looks a little wonky, but overall it was a fun little scene to build so I'll give it a pass. C&C are welcome a appreciated!
  3. And this is what happens when you have only a few hours before the deadline, and only one partially complete build, but are determined to enter something into this category... Once back in a tavern in Bastion Captain Dracken gathered his officers in a private room with plenty of grog. Several rounds of drinks later First Mate Jakes had to ask once more question about the Fountain. "So what happened to the other guy?" he asked, "this father... Tholeua?" Before Dracken could offer his thoughts Iosefka interrupted. "They say dead men tell no tales," she began, "but truely the living need listen more attentively. For Tholeau's fate is no great enigma to those inclined to hear..." The Last Island... Truely, Tholeau had drunk of the Fountain and been restored. But youth has its own curses, recklessness prime amongst many. He went on to the next island heedless of the cost he had incurred, for his selfish use of the Fountain had angered the local spirits and roused the ghosts of all who had gone before him. On the third and final of those islands he found another cave. Of course he had to know what treasure lay on this island. But he found no treasure. Only bones, and hatred for the life he had claimed for himself. And try as he want his legs availed him not. And deep in the caves of that isle he still lays. Water he sought. Water he did find. One Last Answer "So, Althea asked, "if Tholeau died on that island how did his journal get out?" "The dead," Iosefka answered, "do not all rest easy on dark nights and wyrd tides. And Tholeau, he seek immortality above all else. Death not keep his tale untold, and so he become myth. Myth not die so quietly or quickly." "What you're saying," Jakes said, "is that his ghost carried his journal off that island." "It would not be the strangest thing we have seen." Dracken said. A very last minute category B entry, because I just haven't the energy for a second elaborate build. Some "clean" shots of the cavern and it's contents are behind the spoiler button.
  4. In the Third Book of the Second Age, the Triuri tells us that there are numerous islands in the far eastern sea upon which can be found 'waters' that provide some measure of regeneration and age retarding effects. Many of these, the Triuri warns, have dangerous costs. At the time, that revelation spurred on adventurers to find these islands. Only a hand full of were ever found by these epic explorers. All had some danger to the drinking, but the worst was on an island they called Sgian Ghuin. This happened more than three thousand years ago. During the ensuing millennia, The Truachesh civilization faded from prominence, and eventually passed into obscurity. Some records were lost, and maps not added to the Holy Text were infrequently copied. The exact locations of these known fountains were forgotten. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Ylsbeth the Starcatcher had studied long and hard to become the youngest High Priestess of the Crahaish neh Triuri. One of her focuses was on the great epics of the Truachesh High Period, and she had spent many nights using what historical records remained to plot her ancestors' travels onto modern charts. Because of the current major governments' expansion Ylsbeth has again taken to plotting the ancient epics on the new maps of Terraversa Sea. Recently the circulation of the story about Father Tholeau having found what he called the Fountain of Youth made High Priestess Ylsbeth the Starcatcher worried. She pushed the rest of the Crahaish neh Triuri to mount an expedition, to find and guard the most dangerous of the known 'fountains' from the Truachesh epics. So that is why the Island Rose was commissioned, and outfitted for a long voyage. And using the ancient accounts, the crew of Triuri faithful, and Ylsbeth herself, have found Sgian Ghuin. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Here High Priestess Ylsbeth the Starcatcher stands below the ancient Truachesh built archway, which proclaims the dangers of drinking the 'water' found here. It reads, 'Man will die if he does not drink this from the mouth of a woman.' As Ylsbeth is the only woman on this voyage, any of the crew who wish to brave the water's effects, must drink it from her mouth. Here it can be seen that the Truachesh archway isn't the only embellishment this place has seen. Another culture, much older and long gone, marked this site as well. Also, it seems that later men have tried to drink without understanding the warning. Captain Hammish Grei has decided to brave drinking the water from Ylsbeth's mouth. Ylsbeth takes a small sip herself. Even though she is still quite young, her breasts firmed up from the bit of sag she has had in the past year, her skin softened, the wear on her teeth repaired, and even the mild upset stomach from some stale hardtack went away. Holding more of the water in her mouth, Ylsbeth steps down, setting the goblet aside. She motions Captain Grei to stand where she had, and absently wonders how much it would change a man twenty years her senior. Quickly Hammish steps up, and sips from her mouth, open in offering. As he drinks deeper, Ylsbeth kisses him teasingly, then steps back. The change is near immediate, and Captain Grei now looks to be a barely a man of twenty-five. Consort Taliesin the Lightbringer celebrates their success. How he got on that ledge, and why, are a tale for another time. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Here are some empty overview shots. A good look at the 'water' flowing into the pool. And a better shot of the pool from above. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Eight more detail images can be found in this Flickr album. What do you think?
  5. In the bars and taverns of Bastion all sorts of tales are told, especially once enough grog starts to flow. One such story is that of Captain Leon Dracken and the Witch Yolanda... ...a story that begins half a century ago, at the midst of the Forty-Nine Year War, when Admiral Leon Dracken of Oleon was charged with escorting a Priest of Hades to Oleon's early colonies to 'ensure their spiritual purity and discipline'. Not an unusual task, Dracken thought. And, as he would tell himself later, refusal could have meant death... ...but the company of soldiers the priest brought with him was unusual. While Admiral Dracken remained on the ship the priest and soldiers ventured inland to wipe out the followers of the Lord of Deep Waters. The results would be recorded by history as the Blackwater Massacre. The survivors were brought onboard Dracken's ship as prisoners to be taken back to Oleon. Dracken had no doubt any fate other than public execution awaited the prisoners... ...but a storm brought Dracken's voyage to a sudden stop as his ship was battered, broken and began to sink... ...the priest ordered the prisoners remain locked up for their heresies. Dracken disagreed, violently, and as the priest bled out on the deck Dracken tried to save those below... Oleon records that both Dracken and the priest went down with the ship ensuring as many of the crew made it to longboats as possible, and their story ends there. Elsewhere, the story sometimes takes a stranger turn... ...some tell that Leon Dracken and a Blackwater witch named Yolanda were the last to a boat, and that the storm separated them from the other survivors. That Dracken and Yolanda spent days aboard the longboat before the already scant supplies ran out. Dracken was the first to pass out from hunger and dehydration... ...only to awake on an unknown island where Yolanda lead him to a cavern. And within the cave lay a fountain of strangely glowing water... "For the lives you have saved," Yolanda said, "a reward. And for the lives you could not, the burden of your guilt. A life renewed." ...Yolanda bade Dracken drink... ...The effects were immediate, and quite painful... ...And so Dracken left that mysterious isle to begin his career as a pirate. Yolanda remained with him for a time, but eventually the two were parted. Of course, that is just a tall tale, the sort sailors like to tell, isn't it? To the east the real Leon Dracken and one of his crew, the witch Iosefka, have been following Father Tholeau's journal out beyond the known seas. "Hmm", Captain Dracken says to himself, "no one here." "You could hardly be expecting someone," Iosefka says, "from the wrecks on the beach it seems no soul has ventured in some time." "Expecting? No," Dracken says softly, "but hope is the curse of humanity." "I must ask," Iosefka adds, "have you been here before?" Dracken pauses to examine the fountain, filled with brackish green water. "Perhaps," He answers, quietly, "perhaps I have."
  6. Tags: Spaceship, Cat A. Location: E02 - Jurin II M.A.N.T.I.S. Warehouse, Sector 62, Donwarr My name is Randy Hairgel, and I'm a hangar worker for M.A.N.T.I.S. I spend my days in a loader, moving supplies in and out of spaceships and cargo craft. However, what I've always dreamed of being is a Pilot, flying through the outer reaches of the Galaxy. Instead I'm stuck here with endless jokes about my last name. *SLAM* *Hangar Door Flies Open* It's the CEO and Admiral: SpacerPombe! SpacerPombe: Hairgel, see me in the special hangar. Randy: Yes sir! *Follows SpacerPombe into Hangar* Randy: You want to see me? SpacerPombe: Yes, you want to be a pilot right, well a suicide ahem.. survey mission needs a pilot to go to Jurin II. Here's your ship. SpacerPombe: Well, are you ready? I have other very important CEO business to attend to. Chogshey get down here! Randy: It's awesome! Wait, Jurin II.... isn't that the place where Octan has a system which makes every non Octan ship Crash? SpacerPombe: Exactly! Now if you'll excuse me I need to go. Enjoy your first mission! Randy: Why are the engines starting?! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHH! I'm psyched and freaking out! Entering the Atmosphere of Jurin II Randy: So far, so good. Computer: 1000000100101111100000001011111111110000001001010010101010000100000000000111110101101010001010 Randy: Was that a response? Do you speak anything besides binary? Computer: 100001001010101000000000111111101111010000000010101010101000000000111010101000101001010 Randy: Super Useful. Wait why am I falling? AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH! *Crash* Randy: Well, I guess that's not the worst landing ever. At least I'm on an Island! OOC:
  7. Location E02 Jurin II This is a rebuild of my first AG build "I Am So Lost..." Something feels different, I can't put my finger on it but it seems I am working for a corp named Mantis. Anyways, I am trying to source materials for this interesting company here on Jurin II. I sure hope I don't mess this up. I'll be using this ground seeking radar to find whatever it is a guy looks for. Maybe it is for finding dead reshirts. Nah....that wouldn't make any sense for me to be associated with redshirts.
  8. Location: E02 (M.A.N.T.I.S. command ship, Jurin II orbit). Our forces are successfully driving Octan from the planet, but the moon is too heavily fortified. It’s going to take forever to get rid of them. Time is money, Steve. You need to find a way. Quickly. Y’know… I think with some small adjustments my new M.A.N.T.I.S.TM Doom Ray© could probably destroy a small moon… Absolutely not. That would be a PR nightmare. There’s no way we could get away with blowing up a moon full of Octan personnel, tempting though it is. What if it was an ‘accident’? We’d need someone incredibly gullible to pull that off. Hmmm… I had a meeting with HR earlier. There’s a certain pilot. We were going to have him ‘reassigned’ to Project Lambda, but I think he might be perfect for this… Later, on Jurin II: Ok, since your piloting license have been stripped due to "resounding incompetence", you've been assigned to a simple driving mission. Sigh, ok.. What should I do? Just drive this truck down from here, the main base on Jurin II, to the outpost in sector 4. What? This thing? What is it, a laser cement mixer? No, it's a M.A.N.T.I.S.TM Doom Ray© truck. It's a super powerful weapon, that's why it's needed in the outpost. Still looks like a cement mixer to me. Well, since you're surely not firing it, it may well be. Now move on! Yes sir! What is this button over here? Don't touch any button! I bet it will start mixing cement! Click! No! You armed the Doom Ray©! Ok ok, I'm closing it.. maybe it's this other button? Aaaahhh! Stop pushing buttons! In orbit: I’m just saying, when I was CEO, I didn’t flounce around wearing a cape and ribbons. You were only CEO because of a software bug! I don’t see how that’s relevant… Er, Sal? Yes? I assume you somehow fixed it so the Doom Ray© could only target the moon? Um… yeah… totally… why? Because it looks a lot like it’s pointed at us… ... ... ... Looks like M.A.N.T.I.S. just lost a command ship. --- NOTE: The scenes on board the ship reuse a previous build and shouldn't be judged. Thanks for reading! This is based on msx80's hilarious build: Death ray truck. C&C welcome!
  9. Location: E02 Jurin II This is a rebuild of my third AG build: Mission Accomplished! Mission Log: Entry ??? ~ A beautiful, tropical plain, lush vegetation covering the ground as far as the eye could see. Towering pillars of rock and colossal mountains rising above the horizon, obscuring the view of the beaches and sea that fringed one of Jurin II's largest islands. But this paradise was short-lived.... A trail of smoke in the distance. A harsh, throaty laugh as the MANTIS Ravager-class speeder zoomed into view - nicknamed 'The Turtle' due to the huge front "flippers" which propelled the craft through the air. A tall figure garbed in the signature black and green of the MANTIS corporation slowed the speeder to a stop and leapt out. He surveyed his surroundings - ideal. A cruel smile on his face, he lifted a flamethrower down from the side of the speeder and loaded it. He pulled the trigger and the tropical plains around him drowned in leaping flames... In this struggle for domination, Octan could not be allowed to profit from or research the rare plants growing in this region. MANTIS scientists had taken their fill of specimens, and now they were making sure nobody else could steal that advantage. A signature move from the most powerful corporation in the galaxy - or so they thought Without minifigure/speeder: MANTIS Dragonfire: The MANTIS 'Turtle' Ravager-class speeder:
  10. This is a re-build of my first AG build. Location: F02 - Lesser Drigo "Hurry up Ender!" shouted Valentine, his sister, "We need to finish transporting these crystals back to M.A.N.T.I.S. headquarters or else we're going to miss Larva Friday!" Ender and his sister had discovered rare strain of water crystals hidden in the most unlikely spot, under a lava flow channel. They were rushing to get them back to HQ, not just so they could get their grubs, but because a former Kawashita spy had defected and had offered M.A.N.T.I.S. valuable intel if they could provide him with certain materials. One of those items were these crystals. This defector, a Mr. Graver, could be quite valuable if M.A.N.T.I.S. ever needed to react against Kawashita. OoC: Hope you enjoyed! Here's another picture:
  11. Tags: Spaceship Location:F10 - Arium Major I have been dispatched by my commanders to the Arium Major system, in order to protect our small holdings from Octan's forces. I was given an advanced prototype for the mission, which is only known by the project name: Project Exodus. Given it's classified status, i'm not entirely sure what this thing is supposed to do. We based the design on a stolen M.A.N.T.I.S. craft, which was in need of some serious weapon upgrades. Octan bettter stay away from our territory. For Kawashita! Back view: OOC:
  12. This is a rebuild of Big Sal's Experiment P0B06 Excerpt from the lab book of Big Sal: Date: 4 Janurali 3816. Experiment Code: C3B08. Lead Scientist: Big Sal. Location: Kawashita territory, Greater Direstan. Aim: Award famous Kawashita scientist. Excerpt ends. Greetings fellow scientists! Uh, who are you? I'm Big Sal! The famous mighty Kawashita scientist! Did you just say 'mighty Kawashita'? Yes! That's exactly what I said! Man, after wading through all this water, I could do with a shower! I didn't need to know that, why are you here? I'm here to inspect your project! Fill me in on your latest findings. Hmmm, I don't know about that. I'm still not exactly sure who you are? Yeah, if you're Kawashita, what's today's password? Uhhhh... Hey! Dr Wu asked you a question! Stop mumbling! Ok, you got me. I'm not really a scientist. I'm from the Nobel Prize... I mean Kawashita Statue of Excellence committee! We've been watching Dr Wu and we're very impressed! OHMYGOODNESS! WOOO! Oh, wow, I'm flattered! Yes, it's true! I'm here to conduct our final investigation, so if you could just give me all the details of your work... THIS IS AMAZING! Oh, yes, of course! So, this is our new awesomnium drill and we recently discovered the astounding fact that... Excerpt from the lab book of Big Sal: Results: The trophy was successfully delivered. Conclusions: Dr. Wu can talk forever when you let her. Excerpt ends. OoC: While not as big a base as Big Sal's original build, I tried to capture the same look and feel. I only had 3 dart cannons so I modified the drill as well. And having a smaller base (as well as no raft pieces) I had to leave out Big Sal's boat. I hope the story made up for it!
  13. Location: H08 - Sinden's Run Tags: Vehicle, Spaceship / Airplane / Submarine Log #??? – 30 Desembrinali 3815 As happy as I'm always to serve the awesome Octan Corporation™, I have been signed to do a cool awesomnium transport mission in the asteroid field of Sinden's Run©. And boy, is It a lot of fun to do! Octan's Astro Octan Mini™ is mine to command and gee oh whizz, what an awesome little space ship carrier It izz!! It's armed with a suction grip to get a hold on to anything. And when I say anything, I mean anything! So awesome!!1 I can't wait to do my next assignment when this one's done! Have I already said how awesome Octan Corporation™ really is? Let me sing It: ♬Everything is awesome! Everything is awesome when you're part of a team!♬ I'm sorry to say I could'nt make the base like I did with my original entry. I hope you Octan's like this rendition of the Astro Octo Mini!

  14. Challenge 3: Cat A Location: G03 New California Based upon: http://www.eurobrick...howtopic=111355 Thank you to Dardanel for allowing me a chance to try my hand at his lab. I hope I did it justice. // PERSONAL DIARY // Dr. Long had been looking into how best to experiment on water extraction and water analysis techniques and had asked me to spend some time assisting. I was certainly glad to help but it was a surprise that she would send me to a desert planet to work on a water project. From above it looked like just a building stuck in the middle of the desert. It wasn't until I had actually been to the lower levels that I realized just how gargantuan the lab really was. Extra Pics:
  15. Location: H05. Date: 27 Maian 3815. So this is our main xenobiology lab here on Livgorn. Wow, you managed to get all this set up already? We’ve only been in Andromeda for a couple of weeks! Yes, well, Octan’s science department is known for its efficiency. Here, I’ll introduce you to Dr Johnson. Good morning Dr Johnson, this is Big Sal. He’s a pilot who’s considering a career switch to science. Oh, nice to meet you! You too! Dr, would you mind giving Sal a brief tour of the lab? I have some other business to attend to quickly. Sure, no problem! So you're a pilot, huh? Yeah, but I had an accident a few weeks back – gate anomaly, y’know? Ouch… Yup. I was lucky to only lose an arm really, but there was a lot of nerve damage so they only managed to give me this crude thing as a replacement. I’m still a bit clumsy with it. Too clumsy for piloting? Yeah, though to be honest I’ve been thinking of getting into a less dangerous career for while. The accident was kinda the last straw I guess. Ooh, what are these? Legendary explorer Wick Nole brought them in from the swamps a few days ago. They seem to be surprisingly intelligent, though mostly harmless. Hey, Eddie, watch where you’re going with that- What? Arrgh! Oh no! I’m so sorry! It’s this damn robot arm! Hey, don’t worry about it. Accidents happen. What’s that purple stuff? Will drinking it hurt the frogs? It’s awesomnium serum. We don’t really know much about it yet, but what’s the worst that could happen? AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH! Thanks for reading! This is based on my build from all the way back in Week 2. C&C welcome!
  16. Here's my Cat. B entry - With the news of the dwarves plan to invade Avalonia from sea, a diplomat was sent to the the woodland elves who make their home in the south of Avalonia. The plan was to tell them of the plot, and convince them to peacefully stop the dwarves. But whether or not they would listen remained to be seen...
  17. Wyndor's Saga: See what happened prior to this: The Laughing Dwarf At one of the passes through the mountains that stretch along the border of Avalonia and Mitgardia, a small band of elvish guards had been alerted by their spies to the fact that reneged dwarves would be trying to enter their green land to wage war and wreck mayhem. These elves were not used to the cold weather that came down from Mitgardia and filled the pass with snow. They often spent the day huddled together waiting for the evening when the next shift would take over for them and they could continue their huddling by a fire. That day had they had seen very little activity on the road. Finally a wagon made it’s way up the trail and past the guards. “Ho there!” shouted one of the elf guards. “What are you bringing into Avalonia?” The oversized man pulled back on the reigns and brought his team of horses to a halt. “Not’in here but beautifool trees from Valholl” the man said through his beard. The elves looked the cart over and under before letting the oversized man pass. “Alright, you may continue you on your journey” they said. “And may we say, these are some most magnificent trees you are transporting. It’s nice to meet someone else with good taste.” The oversized man picked up the reigns and prepared to continue. “By the way” the elf guard asked, stopping the oversized man before he could go. “Did you see anyone else behind you on your way up the pass?” “Uh… no, I was the only trooveler I could see” he answered. “Noo one was behind me.” “Alright boys,” the elf guard turned to say, “Let’s turn in early to the fire. If there was no one behind this gentleman then it will be at least an hour before a traveler would pass by.” The elves turned to head towards the camp and left the pass. The oversized man waited till the elves were far out of sight and then took off his overcoat. “A brilliant plan Rothgar!” said the upper half of the man. Three other dwarves popped their heads out of the logs and one of the asked, “Are we there yet?” “Almost,” answered Rothgar. “We’ve made it past the hardest part. Now we just need to get to the cliff so we can fire on the Drow in time!” OoC: Hopefully you'll caught that the oversized man was really two dwarves standing one on the other's shoulders. But just in case, I'll mention that here And yes, that is a Brian Regan reference in the title.
  18. Wyndor's Saga: See what happened prior to this: Returning Before leaving Dalig Ulv, Rothgar took time to visit the statue of The Laughing Dwarf found just outside Treacleheim. OoC: I really wanted to get a different feel for my statue than what had already been done. Let me know what you think of the result.
  19. From the record of Stian Vitr's report to Erland Blar: In my earlier travels, I discovered an abandoned watchtower. This tower became a hideout for myself and my friend, your son, Tait. This morning, we rode out to the tower to enjoy our break before poleaxe training. We wanted to practice together before we were tested at the barracks by Master Einar. When we reached the tower, we noticed that someone had placed several barrels of arms inside, and it made us curious. I climbed to the top of the tower to inspect further, when we suddenly heard some one approaching. Seeing I had no time to get back down, I signaled to Tait to return with the horses. I quickly clamored on top of the thatched roof of the tower and burrowed into the straw to avoid being seen. I soon discovered who was approaching: a group of dwarves with more arms to add to their store. Hoping they would leave soon, I settled down to wait. Instead of leaving after depositing the arms, someone climbed to the top of the tower. I pushed my face through a hole in the thatching to be able to see what was going on. Four dwarves had come to the top of the tower. All four stood in a circle around the trapdoor, not speaking a word. Then, one in a green hat unrolled a scroll and began to read. "Due to the threat of an alliance between Drow and Elves, all dwarves from the Madren militia will commence attacking the Drow to prevent this alliance. In order to maintain secrecy, we will tunnel into Avalonia underground. We shall take the Drow by surprise and wipe them from Avalonia, thus preventing an attack on our homeland of Mitgardia." The three others cheered and began murmuring amongst each other. Though I was close, I could hear very little of what was said. With this news, I was anxious to report back so that something might be done to prevent this rash act of the dwarves. As soon as the dwarves left, I hurried down from the tower and ran back to Falkidalr. End of Report. Responsive action to commence. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- C&CC quite welcome. I would appreciate it if a Moderator would let me know if the slight overhang is acceptable. Thanks for looking!
