  1. Lieutenant Keeling, recently arrived from the Naval Intelligence Office in Port Woodhouse, was overheating. Brickford Landing was hot and the breeze that he'd enjoyed earlier in the day had died down. He removed his tricorn hat as Captain Keats brought him a letter to encrypt with the current ciphers. While sworn to secrecy, he was still personally interested to see what new intelligence had been gleaned from the captured Lotii scout. --------------------- OOC: Just an excuse to try out some pretty flower combos and SNOT-ed shutters. I figured this naval intel office would be a fun chance to explore a small outpost for the intelligence branch. Licensed as a medium educational property in Brickford Landing Another picture:
  2. Brickford Landing was both growing and at risk from the Lotii threat. Earlier that season they had captured a Lotii scout who had been scoping out their position. With Major Brickford away on the Island of Terraversa, Captain Keats decided the small island battery that protected the settlement was not enough security. He instructed his small group of soldiers to build a medium-sized fort a small way inland. The fort featured a tall tower from which a sentry could keep an eye on sea traffic. The fort also included a number of batteries that could support the small island battery if the need arose. Once the basic fort had been constructed, Keats was ashamed of how ugly it was. His men had quickly thrown it together and it served its utilitarian purpose: keeping the settlement safe. However, he wanted to impress Brickford when he returned to the island. So, Keats asked his men if any of them knew how to carve rock. Private Beesley spoke up - his father was a master carver in Belson and Beesley had grown up learning the trade in his father's shop. With no better option available, Keats decided to trust Beesley and excused him from his normal duties for a few weeks so he could work on improving the look of the fort. Keats was pleasantly surprised by the results. Now if only he could figure out how to keep the whitewash they were applying to the sloped walls from washing off following a heavy rain... -------------- OOC: Just an excuse to build a fort on a raised baseplate. Tried out sloped walls like @CapOnBOBS, but you can't really tell from this angle To be licensed as a medium fort by Corrington
  3. With Major Brickford away leading the expeditionary forces on Terraversa with Colonel Allcock, Captain Keats was left in charge of the fledgling settlement at Brickford Landing. When Keats heard shots to the east, he hurriedly loaded his pistol and rallied nearby men to accompany him in the direction of the sound. As much of Brickford Landing was still dense jungle, the beach provided the easiest route of travel. Coming upon two of his men, the Captain asked for a report. He learned that two unknown men in plainclothes had been sneaking along the edge of the eastern picket. Corlander forces had asked them to identify themselves and the men had fired upon them. The Corrington men returned fire, killing one of the assailants and wounding the other, who they now had under guard. Following an initial attempt at interrogation, it became clear the prisoner didn't speak much of the Corlander tongue. Bringing in a villager to help translate, Captain Keats could tell from the translated questions that the man spoke Lotii natively. What were the Lotii doing scouting out Brickford Landing? Keats immediately tripled the perimeter guard. -------------------- OOC: I wanted to bring attention back to the fact that Corrington is still at war with the Lotii, and figured this would be a fun way Also wanted to use two new KTown Bricks minifigs I got recently: a redcoat officer and a browncoat BTS:
  4. Island Battery Just off of the shoreline on a small island, the marines at Brickford Landing have constructed a small cannon battery to aid in the new settlements defense. Island Battery 1 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Though it isn't a massive structure, it is a good first response to any threat that may try to reach the settlement. Island Battery 2 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr A close up overview of the build: Island Battery 3 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr ------------------------------------------- The next phase of building has begun for Brickford Landing! To be licensed by the faction as a small fort. C&C are welcome and appreciated!
  5. Part 1: Part 2: (8 miles outside Brickford Landing) As Captain Vaughn was sent out on another patrol into the steamy wilderness, he smiled faintly. From his vantage point atop his mount he could see the rough terrain smooth into a clearing. Knowing that his force of light cavalry was only a reconnaissance detachment, he had to be mindful of avoiding engagement. So far, the Loti were a nuisance, but not a formidable opponent. He turned to Corporal Williams, who had the misfortune of walking with the squadron. He wasn’t part of the cavalry, but was attached for navigational services. “Mister Williams, would you point out the clearing on the map, might it be the one with the Loti camp?” Williams peered at his map, once satisfied with his inspection, looked over to Vaughn, “Aye, sir, the same.” Confident in the Corporal’s assessment, Vaughn addresses the squadron, “We’ll take rest there and see to it that we make ourselves scarce, if we are to make contact!” C&C welcome as always!
  6. Part 1: During a particularly unremarkable afternoon in the quiet streets of Brickford Landing, Karlton, who happened to be in the good company of Captain Kenneth, discussed the situation of Terraversa. It had been nearly a fortnight since news had arrived from Terraversa, due to a startling resistance and effectiveness of Loti raiding convoys. In the months since the arrival at Brickford Landing, little time was put to waste in the construction of the settlement. As for Karlton, he spent most days leading foraging parties and expeditions into the wilderness surrounding the settlement. A handful of Loti resupply docks for their navy were raided and razed, but it became soon became clear that the inland forest was just as foreign to the Loti as to Karlton. With command statisfied and the settlement well protected with further reinforcements, Karlton and his marines were allowed a lengthy period of rest. Diverting focus from the conversation was the faint but rapid pounding of hooves on packed earth. Almost Immediately, a courier rides up to Karlton and Kenneth. "Corporal Williams, Sir. I was dispatched with the express intent of presenting this letter" First in a series (if all goes well) C&C welcome as always.
  7. 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

  9. Brickford Landing - The Beginnings of a New Settlement Major Nathaniel Brickford was enjoying the afternoon walking around the city of Quinnsville admiring all the work that had been put into the settlement in the last year. 20200422_201845 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr The peaceful walk around the city was quickly interrupted however, as the Major's aide de camp Sargent Anthony Andrews, came at a full sprint from around the corner. "Major Brickford, you've received an official letter from the Vice President of the RSND!" 20200422_201912 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr "Well then you'd better hand it over and let me have a look". After glancing at his aide, he added, "and you should probably rest a spell while I do so". 20200422_201949 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr "Hmm... this is most interesting and exciting!" Remarked Nathaniel. "We have been selected by the Royal Society of Navigation and Discovery to lead a endeavor into the New Haven Sea in order to secure additional territories for Crown of Corrington and offer support to the settlement of Spudkirk once we get up and running". "Shall I ready a detachment of the Fusiliers for the expedition Sir?" "Certainly, and extend an invitation to the new Marine Lieutenant that has arrived in King's Harbour. Karlton is his name. We could use an extra officer on an expedition like this. I will procure a ship suitable for the journey from the docks and we will rendezvous at the barracks". 2 Weeks Later The Major and his men successfully traversed the waters of the New Haven Sea. After a brief stop at Spudkirk to drop off some needed supplies and pick up a few enlisted men, he departed for new lands. In an effort to limit the time out in the open sea, the Major has opted to go ashore in a sheltered cove on the north of Island 12. Effectively claiming the Island for the Crown of Corrington and dubbing the landing location 'Brickford Landing'. From here a base of operations will be set up to monitor the current events in the region. Brickford Landing by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr The landing went smooth and easy, hopefully signs of what was too come in the future. Brickford Landing 1 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr The first order of business was to unload the supplies and establish a beach head in the region. Also, it never hurts to plant a flag to show whose land your on! Brickford Landing 3 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Brickford Landing 6 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr In Spudkirk, the expedition picked up a civilian passenger as well. One Tobias Winterbottom. An expert biologist, zoologist and self-proclaimed ''outdoorsman''. Brickford Landing 4 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr While the Marines first protested about lugging around his suitcase chest, which has enough space for 5 men's belongings, a stern look from the Major changed their tune. Brickford Landing 7 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Shortly after landing, Lieutenant Karlton was ordered to secure the perimeter of the landing area and locate a spot close by to set up a basecamp. Brickford Landing 5 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr With a few Marines following close behind, he set off into the thick jungle to survey the area. Brickford Landing 8 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr The start of a new settlement is always an adventure. Major Brickford and his men are ready to face any new challenges that come his way on Island 12! (Island name still in Development). --------------------------------------------------- Island #12 in the New haven Sea is hereby officially claimed for the Crown of Corrington! As this is a pretty much a warzone, the troops are on high alert. Thanks for checking out my latest build! The landscape doesn't have too much height variation, I used all of my brown, tan, and most of my green on the first layer! C&C are welcome and appreciated! Thanks for looking!
