Unless school is super busy.... Entire shot of the build.
  8. Location: Mesabi Landing Type: Class 8 Ship Destroying Angel by North White, on Flickr Having been launched, the WTC's largest ship, the Destroying Angel now floated majestically in the harbour of Mesabi Landing. Destroying Angel by North White, on Flickr Agnes and the Ship's Designer walked along the deck, discussing the mighty vessel. Destroying Angel by North White, on Flickr "How is a vessel with 6 cannons worthy of the name "Destroying Angel?!?" Asked Agnes angrily. "Maybe you should have waited before naming it!"

Destroying Angel by North White, on Flickr The Majestic Ship would soon see action against the Pirates of the Brick Seas... ...except for Sinbad thanks to the reckless actions of Ansa Mesabi... FIN So, finally finished the destroying angel, which I had working on since around November. I recently finished it up and spent the day doing rigging in sails, and I will say the following. Sails are $#@%$#@%$%$#@%#@%$#@%@#%#@%@#%@#^&*&*^(^%#@$$#@^&&(&^%#$$@#$ing difficult to do. And mine look absolutely terrible. They also took me like 6 hours to do, as well as a major chunk of my sanity. So I am not going to fix them anytime soon. Otherwise, I'm mostly happy with the rigging, and the ship as a whole. I tried to follow @Bregir's suggestions for the ship, and worked hard to give her a nice tumblehouse. I also added my own little interior for when I need a conference scene when I'm fighting pirates. C&C appreciated, though the sails are awful. I understand.

"Dr. Vesper. Edmund Vesper. Please, sit down with me, I want to talk to you about a thing or two." Dr. Vesper continued. The Reckoning Chapter 2 by North White, on Flickr "Are you familiar with... the Tiberian Puffin?" Dr. Vesper asked. The Reckoning Chapter 2 by North White, on Flickr "Ah, of course. A small seafaring bird once found on Tiberia. Why do you ask?" Randall said. The Reckoning Chapter 2 by North White, on Flickr "Do you recall why they are gone?" Dr. Vesper asked. "Well, there are theories, but..." "But we all know the truth. We killed them, we cooked them we and ate them. And our cats killed them. And the rats that snuck off our ships ate their eggs. Until there were no puffins left. None at all." Dr. Vesper said cooly. "But of course that's just a theory. And Tiberia holds many cliffs where Puffins could hide still..." Said Randall happily. "Ah, you are an optimist." Said Vesper with a frown. "Yup! And I like birds!" Said Randall. The Reckoning Chapter 2 by North White, on Flickr Dr. Vesper stood, and drew his pistol. "What you are not getting is this: minifigures destroy. We take. We break things. And we forget about the consequences. I spent my life dedicated to building better ways to do this, only for them to toss me aside like rotting wood in a forest to be burned down anyway. And that is why now is the time of reckoning." "What are you doing?" said Randall in a panic. "Put that thing away before someone gets hurt!" Randall, stood up, only to be struck with the but of a pistol. He cried out, and was struck again. As he crawled away, Dr. Vesper beat him over and over until he stopped moving. The Reckoning Chapter 2 by North White, on Flickr "Yes, Mr. Randall Knox. I think the time of reckoning is nigh." Dr. Vesper dug into the back pocket of Randall's pants, and pulled out identification papers. The Reckoning Chapter 2 by North White, on Flickr He walked away smiling.

Were you followed?" An act of Valor by North White, on Flickr "Non, non, just let us in. We need food, we've been on the run for a day! We'd have been mort if it weren't for these Corrish roads."

LATER The Board by North White, on Flickr "We have reviewed your accomplishments, Captain Ansa Mesabi." Said the chair of the army review board. "We'll let you know whether you are eligible for promotion at this time." FIN Thanks for viewing my build. It has officially been 1 year for me playing BoBS. Thanks to everyone who has helped me along the way, especially @Bregir, @Ayrlego, @Maxim I, @Capt Wolf, and @Drunknok! This build is to introduce Count Mesabi's sister, Captain Ansa Mesabi. It was fun to do some action sequences. I miss back in AG where everyone was at war with everyone and we could kill as many of the enemy as we wanted in our stories. Still though, BoBS has been a great experience and I think I have become a better builder because of it. C&C appreciated.
