  1. "Oh Centurion, Stedor has extinquished their lighthouse again. It will be a dark night like always..." "Hahaha, our Centurion will not hear you. We are in the middle of a sea... Come on, let's sleep some... Aisha, it's your turn to watch out for coming lights" And so the Ulandian Navy Soldiers in the Ghuba-ya Biashara closed their eyes and started sleeping... A few hours later: "I saw something in the water!! The ship is moving!!" Aisha yelled, "Shut up Aisha, it's a shark swimming around the ship. Even in the moonlight you can see it is a shark. And beside, we are anchored" Aisha was right, there was a shark in the water. But also a whole bunch of Mermaids who removed the anchors of the Patrolling Vessels so they could move them to another territory. A guerilla against Ulandus together with Bregir for Square J15 For the glory of the High Council!! Long live the real Kaliphlin!! C&C ofcourse welcome!! Also UoP for: - Hydrology : Underwater - Landscape: Sideaways Rocks
  2. The name Mpya Stedor means "New city" ("Mpya" is swahili for "new" and "Stedor" comes from "Stede" which is old Dutch for "City") The new settlement became already quickly a famous place in Historica and after 3 years it was finally recognised as a mayor Port City! So a few hours before the Great Disturbance, Stedor was a busy tradeplace full of activity! There was even a very nice wedding going on!!! (check the movie: ) ---------------------------------------- Now: (a few weeks after the Great Disturbance) Lord Damaximus called in the Council of Stedor Lord Damaximus: => Sir Fre Poah, how is our financial status? Sir Fre Poah: => Badly Lord, it's like there is a gap in the floor and all our gold is vanishing through it... Damaximus: => Lord Tomvaximus (of Maestro): what are our revenues? Tomvaximus: => Our only revenues are the food we can sell at neighbouring cities with foodshortage... We hear the people complaining it is only fish fish and fish we can offer nowadays... All our other products are on hold... Damaximus: => How is the reconstruction of our gold mine? Tomvaximus: => I guess it will be 3 more weeks before we can start mining again and a few more weeks before the revenues will stream in... Damaximus: => Sir Gah Rydog, how is the rebuilding of our Southern Towers? Gah Rydog: => Will be a matter of days.. Normally by Thursday our fortifications are back like they should be. Damaximus: => Finally some good news... General Whisximus, Where are my troops? Whisximus: => Most of the Alleenridders and Ximian forces are still sieging Eastgate. The 1001 Tigres are on holiday at Al'Esterbroke so we don't have to pay them. The Atlarkian fleet is back in Atlarka as it is summer there and they wanted to see their wife and kids. The dragons of Drakrydar are also back home for the breeding season... => In Stedor we are using the minimum soldiers we need. The other soldiers are rebuilding the damaged parts of our city and the neighbours. Damaximus: => Tomvaximus, prepare some ships so we can send messengers to other Guilds. Tell them they can hire the 1001 Tigres as mercenaries. Make them leave our city tomorrow morning. Talking about our fleet, Admiral Bostoximus, how is our fleet? Bostoximus: => We still have 10 ships. 10 more ships are currently being repaired. The 30 other ships we once had, are lost. I am sorry my lord. Damaximus: => Council dismissed, I gonna cry some... -------------------------------------------- Lord Damaximus: => Lord Max Samu, what's up with the Ulanda thing in front of our bay, anymore news? Lord Max Samu, => our agents are doing everything they can to gain as much info as possible. It is a good thing we don't say much about it to our citizens. The first reports I get in are talking about more than 5000 soldiers, very well organised. Damaximus: => Okay, let's send an emissary to there. Hopefully they are not up to war... Max Samu: => They already sent emissaries themselves to weaker cities here in Kaliphlin. It is frightening that not one major city in Kaliphlin saw an emissary of Ulanda. The only emissary we saw was that idiot who claimed the Desert King is back. Damaximus: => I know it is frightening. That's why my messengers are not going to offer my 1001 Tigres but they are going to ask for help to our alliances in other Guilds. Max Samu: => It is indeed wise to let our citizens be unknown of the current situation. Are you going to tell your allies Stedor is bankrupt? Damaximus: => Nope. When they ask to show some money, we are going to show the money of Everlast. Thanks god that place hasn't been hit by the Great Disturbance...

    West Stedor

    West Stedor has been renovated. The wall, gate and towers may look the same as the previous ones, now they are stronger and have a better foundation. All the buildings in West Stedor have been replaced and put on a higher level. Now the ground level functions as stockage room. Avalonia, Mitgardia and Nocturnus have their individual stockageroom where their members can store goods. There are also 3 Kaliphlin stockagerooms. They can be recognised by the heralds of Eastgate (for West Kaliphlin), Petraea (Middle Kaliphlin) and Qarkyr (East Kaliplin). The buildings itself are different shops. The red building houses a bakery and a cartographer. The darkblue house has a butcher and cooper in it and under the arches people can buy fruit. The dark orange building is well know for their smiths, stonecutters and painters (most of them coming from Ruadh!). The green building is the very famous "Horses Head Inn". Under the Inn are stables. Not only the white striped buildings are a citymark of Stedor, also the mozaic roofs made of dried flowers are known in every corner of the world. As major Historican trading port, Mpya Stedor has cranes to lift heavy cargo. (note: it really works!) In the Market Area you can almost buy everything!! Some good wine? Check! Or a new fancy cape? Check! Or you need some barrels to store your food in? Check!! Let's see what the Market Area can offer you: - Ale seller from Mitgardia - Baker - Butcher - Cape maker (with spinningweel) - Cartographer - Cooper - Fish & Seafruits - Fruits & Vegetables - Inn - Painter - Stonecutter making statues - Weapons - Winery There is also a fortuneteller telling you everything you want to hear! After walking under the huge Main Gate of Stedor, you are welcomed by a very vibrating Main Square. People are meeting eachother here or saying goodbye, adventurers are dropping a tear before leaving the city, ... It all happens around the fountain under the Statue of Liberty. Another very popular attraction are the Warrior Games in front of the "Champions Guild". Many famous Historicans are watching now a game between a Mitgardian and a Jungle Of Gorr Warrior. Lord Damaximus is standing on the balcony of the "Champions Guild" (aka Alleenridders Palace), having a nice view over West Stedor. In front of him, workers are building a small temple. And if all the activity makes you thirsty? Well go get a beer in the Horses Head Inn!! Under the "Horses Head Inn" are the stables of West Stedor. Easily recognisable by the Camel wall painting next to it. In the lower right corner, you see a part of the construction site. As MAESTRO needed more space, they have converted the West Gate into their Headquarter. Here their traders and soldiers come and go with goods and gold. Different views of the city I had many positive comments at Brickmania Limburg about this part of my city. I hope you like it as well :) Thanks for watching! C&C is ofcourse welcome! Maxim I Note: I believe I am the first one using flowers as roofing technique. There are in Hungary and Poland buildings (mostly churches) with mozaic in their roofs, making it very colourfull and extrely beautifull. Note 2: For the University of Petraea I like to claim more than 3 credits because of the size of the MOC (it are smaller 3 48x48 baseplates + 1 32x80 + 4 32x32 MOCs): - Architecture: roofing (the flowers) - Architecture walls: SNOT tiled walls (the camel and doors) - Architecture roofrakes (the white roofrakes of the Horses Head Inn) - Architecture Advanced windows (the fences as windows, the double windows, ...) - General Building: Movement-enabled (the crane on the docks and the crane of the workshop) - Trade & Law: manufactering - Culture : Art Note 3: West and East Stedor will be showed together at Brickmania Antwerp 2014 (15 & 16 November) as part of a huge (8x8 meter) castle lay-out, so be sure to come to there and check this out! Note 4: the pictures were taking during Brickmania Limburg. That's why the lightening is not perfect. Anyway, thanks to Lt. Hornblower & Sebeus for holding the black sail behind the MOC!
  5. Welcome to the Nestlands Trading Post! Here you'll find paints, pigments, dyes (for hair and cloth), rare herbs, fine weapons in the Nestlands style, and three journeyman craftsmen ready to take commissions. The proprietor's name is Yhllip Prws. The three craftsmen are Joc Rud, Gwylm Kensy and Dugl Duhbgehs. ----------------------- A little history on the building: Located in the market district of Mpya Stedor, it began as nothing more than a stone warehouse for storing ale that hasn't had time to age. Some time in the late expansion of Mpya Stedor Apothecary Tolin leased the space, and renovated the exterior to be more eye catching. The north and south walls were given some low curving additions, the small windows were surrounded by a light blue paint, two columns were installed on the front corners, the doorway was widened and given an arch, and a small gable was installed with additional arch supports. Apothecary Tolin plied his trade there for quite some time, making and selling ointments, unguents, and restorative herbal teas. This all changed just before the Battle of Mpya Stedor. For a few weeks before the battle, Tolin was experimenting with a small amount of 'exploding powder' that he acquired from a strange source. He thought that he could reproduce the powder, and maybe improve upon it. Make it an effective weapon to repel the horde most knew was on its way. No one is certain how all the powder was ignited at once, but witnesses claim to have seen a blinding white flash, then a large plume of black smoke. Next the flames roared to life, causing most of Tolin's wares to ignite. The building was nothing more than a smoldering shell when the fire was finally put out. Luckily no other buildings were damaged by the fire, Unluckily Tolin's body was blown into tiny shards of bone and lumps of flesh, that were subsequently cooked by the fire. Only a few fragments of bone survived well enough to be collected for burial. Some time after the Battle of Mpya Stedor, the building and lot were purchased by the Blue Walkers Trading Company out of the Nestlands. The Company rebuilt the interior, added the large eagle head carvings, completely redesigned the roof, and repainted the exterior (preserving the original paint around the windows). Additionally, a small alter was placed in the loft where any Nestlands faithful is welcome to pray. ----------------------- Today outside the Nestlands Trading Post: It is mid afternoon in Mpya Stedor, the building's door is closed, and the windows are shuttered. Gwylm Kensy's current work, new tabletops for a restaurant and inn. Joc Rud has finished his commision for the Aslanic Order soldiers. It is assumed these large carvings are intended to be placed outside the soldiers' barracks. Dugl Duhbgehs is repairing armor for a battle camel. Lady Eddira Rendelberry has been waiting several minutes, wondering why the trading post is closed on such a nice day. She is looking to buy more hair dye. Squire Rikhard 'Redbird' Greisun spies the Lady Rendelberry waiting impatiently. He had been meaning to find time to speak with her alone, but keeping troops well prepared to defend the city leaves little time for courting. "Good Lady," Rikhard cooed joyfully, "Why are you waiting here in the sun, at this time of day? Don't you know?" "Know what, good Squire?" Eddira rejoindered, "Why Lady Rendelberry, these Nestlands men are at their daily prayers," Rikhard says softly, "They will be at it for at least an hour, or more. Please allow me to escort you to the Court Dining Hall, where you may wait with a cool drink. On my account." The Lady is about to take the Squire's hand when one of the Market Guards (a greedy sot) spies them and begins to rush over. In his head, there is an idea that the Squire is making some kind of deal with the Lady, and he wants in. However, he slows to a stop short, with a scared stupid grin, when the Squire glares at him for his intrusion on the private moment. -------------------------------- More details of the building. The carvings are a stylized representation of the Armored Eagle Goddess. They were brought all the way from Cobalt Vale, and mounted with care by expert masons. The roof is a new design intended to provide perches and roosting for the local birds. Anyone who tries to harm any birds in the vicinity of this trading post will be reported, and banned from the premisses. (OOC: Brickarms crates!) (OOC: Best image I could get of the window shutter. Lid to a Brickarms crate.) ------------------------------------- Comments appreciated. I am also seeking UoP DoH credits. Architecture: Roofing (1 of 3) Anthropology: City Scene
  6. As Mpya Stedor is being named after the Stedor, the capital city of Science in the homelands of Lord Damaximus (Mpya is Swahili for "New"), the city had to have its own University. As coastal city, it is evident to have a Naval Academy located in the University. And as homecity of MAESTRO, the fine arts of Negociations is being teached just like Tradelaws. Ofcourse the more common subjects as Geography, Alchemy, Maths and History can be followed as well. The University is located in the Eastern part of Mpya Stedor. Mpya Stedor - University & Naval Academy by Da_Maximus, on Flickr The symbols in mozaic stands for "Mu" and "Sigma", the Greek version of "M" and "S" (the beginning letters of Mpya Stedor) Mpya Stedor - University & Naval Academy by Da_Maximus, on Flickr Mpya Stedor - University & Naval Academy by Da_Maximus, on Flickr Yep, that is indeed Duke LeStrange walking out the University! Behind that door is the great hall with the huge Aula inside the mountains. There are other rooms ofcours in the building, some of them can be seen when walking on the streets. Mpya Stedor - University & Naval Academy by Da_Maximus, on Flickr The Naval Room is one of them. In this room, there is a big table where students can play naval battles for example. For example Sven Thorson & Skyrimguy are playing a naval battle Mpya Stedor - University & Naval Academy by Da_Maximus, on Flickr Professor Geshi Edeh Nis is teaching History.

  7. Even there are only 2 ways to enter Mpya Stedor through land, the city has many gates. Travellers who has crossed the desert on their way to the glorious city arrive at the imposant Main Gate. Residents of the city who are travelling through the Rakath Mountains are always more than happy to see the ancient Black Gate. The traders who are coming by see have to pass the West Gate. Those who are unlucky enough to be in trouble and who are about to get interrogated have to pass under the Amenor Gate. Well, there is also the East Gate. However its function is kinda unknown at this moment as the only thing that lays behind the gate is a piece of land surrounded by the sea. Mpya Stedor - East Gate by Da_Maximus, on Flickr Mpya Stedor - East Gate by Da_Maximus, on Flickr Mpya Stedor - East Gate by Da_Maximus, on Flickr Here is a small teaser of two upcomming posts (yep, the university is finally ready!!): East Mpya Stedor by Da_Maximus, on Flickr Thanks for watching. C&C Welcome! about the UoP: I am not sure if I can claim something with this build... Wall decoration and statues are not in the program :(
  8. Intro Mpya Stedor is founded when Lord Damaximus arrived at the lands of Historica. And has flourished ever since. Famous for this city is the trade network it has with other cities in Historica and other Guilds from other continents. The closest city is the legendary city of Berigora. Also the new town of Auner is very close to Mpya Stedor.

  9. the Gate of Amenor hides the Headquarters of the I.A.M.S. . It is called the Gate of Amenor as it also serves as the Amenorian Embassy in Kaliphlin. That's also the reason why it has the black & gold combination in it. The library has the typically white/tan combination. Inside the library, there are hundreds of books, varying from cooking books to epic story tellers. Those who want to read and have an amazing view of the bay, can sit on the balcony at the upper floor. There are 3 cameo's (Gideon, Synbiote & my sigfig).

  10. As Lord Damaximus still was laying siege at Eastgate, he decided it was time to show the world his re-organised army. As it would be stupid to give his enemy too much information, he only showed 3 or 4 soldiers of each group. But to give you a general thought of his army: it should be between 500 and 600 men Ofcourse such an army costs a lot to maintain, so that's why he prefers to work with mercenaries. Also, not all of these soldiers will fight in Eastgate as those of M.A.E.S.T.R.O., Mpya Stedor itself and Everlast have their own duties. all pictures will direct to my flickr :) The Sieging Troops The Alleenridders Alleenridders - Fifth Alleenridders by Da_Maximus, on Flickr 1001 Tigers (led by Lord Nomar Helmier) Ximian Mercenaries (led by King Mattiximus himself) Drakrydari Mercenaries (led by King Dragonius XXV himself) (the Dragons were sleeping so they could not get painted in time...)

  11. First of all, the guests are all made with pieces I already had. As my collection is not neverending, I choosed to create first the sigfigs of those who are active in the past months. After that, I started creating others So if you don't see your sigfig in this list, it just means I had not the necessary parts anymore for him. Sorry for that! The 80 Guests who could arrive: The story: Lord Dama Ehdehl Mfalme Ximus, better known as Lord Damaximus went to a trip to the far lands of Morastia (Roawia/LCC). Once arrived there, and after some adventures in Morastia, he felt in love with Lady Julia Xavier, the daughter of Consul Arturius Xavier. As Morastia is in a conflict with Lenfald, Lord Damaximus decided to sent a big army, led by Sir Nomar Helmier to there in order to help them. Not so much later, they married in the capital of Morastia (wedding will be build by MatthiasXavier). As his bride had to arrange some things after the wedding, she came a few days later to Mpya Stedor than Lord Damaximus. In the meantime, Lord Damaximus quickly visited Mitgardia (MOC by Garmadon). In the meantime, the first guests where arriving at the city, packed with gifts and beer (MOC's by Kai & Kai again, Dama, Scarst, Legofin & Kabel). As Lord Damaximus did not wanted to know what the present was he get from everyone before the wedding was over, the Treasure Master & Guards made a list of all gifts that arrived. As Lord Damaximus wanted to guarantee everyone's safety, weapons were forbidden in the city. The guards of all the guests had to celebrate in campments outside the city. Ofcourse the new couple had to shake hands with everyone. They did that ofcourse with a pleasure Here they are saying hi to that other famous Historica couple: Lord de Gothia & Lady Lena: Some more pictures showing all the guests partying & finally showing (West Inner) Mpya Stedor to you: And to finish, here one global painting, painted by an artist flying on a dragon: Thx for watching! C&C ofcourse welcome!! Also, don't forget to visit the Kaliphlin touristic areas tomorrow when you leave my city!!! Oh, you can all play the game: "guess the name of the guest!" in this flickr set:
  12. Historica is still an unsave place. Nobody knows what really happened to Victor Revolword and there are still groups of HoC-soldiers raiding villages. But in these dark times, Lord Damaximus will be married with Lady Julia Xavier, daughter of the Consul of Morastia. The marriage itself will be in Morastia, but there will be a big celebration in Mpya Stedor as well. Lords, celebrities, kings, troubadours, traders, ... from all over Historica and other places in this world will come to the city. Needless to say that in order to guarantee everyones safety, a lot of soldiers will patroll the city and the walls. As Mpya Stedor is also a (very rich) port, a lot of people will come by ship and they will all have to set anchor in the Ghuba-Ya Biashara (the bay in front of Mpya Stedor) . So to guard these ships, Lord Damaximus ordered some very fast and strong vessels. The flagship of those vessels is The Amazon. To add a little more prestige to it, the captain of the ship is nobody less then Admiral Bostoximus. Together with Henry The Sailor, he is teacher at the Mpya Stedor Naval Academy and is specialised in naval warfare. The captain of the naval troops is General Ivoximus. As their names indicates, they are both men of honour in the Guild of Ximus (otherwise they would have been called Ivo the Archer for example ) Anyway, "The Amazon": The Amazon by Da_Maximus, on Flickr The Amazon by Da_Maximus, on Flickr The Amazon by Da_Maximus, on Flickr The Amazon by Da_Maximus, on Flickr without any minifigs: The Amazon by Da_Maximus, on Flickr Admiral Bostoximus' cabin: (with bed) The Amazon by Da_Maximus, on Flickr (without the bed, now the desk can be used) The Amazon by Da_Maximus, on Flickr The countdown to the wedding can begin Personal note: I didn't really planned to build a real vessel. I was trying to make a slave-sloop for in my city, but while constructing, I saw the opportunity to make finally a nice vessel If I had the right bricks, I would have done some things otherwise, but based on the collection availabe, I am really happy with the result I know the background could have been better, but it are exams for me, so I prefer spending my breaks with Lego instead of creating a nice background C&C is ofcourse welcome!
  13. As there are some important weeks in sight (yup, this is in fact a small teaser!), Lord Damaximus decided to go to Jade Haar Sneydehr, the barber of Mpya Stedor. The reason why he had to go to the barber can be seen here: After Jade did her job: And a lord is nothing without his cape, so hereby I (re)present you: Lord Damaximus of Mpya Stedor! And of course, after he was gone, Jade had to clean the room: You can go to the flickr page by clicking the pictures! Not really a very big MOC, but sometimes you need to enjoy the smaller things as well C&C are always welcome!
  14. Sir Handoximus, one of the finest diplomats Lord Damaximus could find, is send on mission. The Golden Swan, one of the fastest vessels of the Mpya Stedorian Navy will bring him to his destiny. The Captain (Captain Drijximus) is also one of the best captains in this world, graduated at the Mpya Stedor Naval Academy (wiki) What the destination is? Future will tell! => Sir Handoximus (with the red&dark blue armsleeves) looking to the wide ocean => Remind the first flag for in the future The ship is an gilded Armada Flagship (without Cannon). I think it is one of the only official ships that also fit in a medieval world as it really looks like a 15th century vessel! C&C welcome!!
  15. Official Entry (OOC) (Story) Most important characters in this entry: Chapter I - The Fellowship of more than one thing Part 1 - Blades vs. Helmets Mpya Stedor Gatehouse Conference Room Note: this is situated before Lord Max Samu left in response to the call of MacLean LDM: It's been long enough since Revolword terrorises Historica. Our resources are getting empty. We need to get rid of him so our tradecaravans can safely arrive at the other mayor cities! Lord Max Samu, it's up to you to discuss with your men the plan! LMS: Thanks Dama, to the Black Ninja's and Ninja Assassins, as long as you are in this room, you are allowed to speak to the people inside this room. From the moment you walk outside the doors, the only people you speak to are me or your team mates! The ninja's: yes mylord!! LMS: Ok, the Black Ninja's are Team Helmet, the Ninja Assassins are Team Blade. You will do what you are trained for. To check if you understood this, Team Blade goes outside till I say you may re-enter! Team Blade: Yes Mylord! (they leave) LMS: Team Helmet, your task is to obtain that bloody helmet that can control the elementals. Your task is to bring it to Everlast, where it will be safe against other wannabe badboys. You are with 4 because you will have to work together in order to get in and to obtain it. Is there a question about that? Mr. Withaar: May we kill Victor if we have the chance? LMS: Nope, you may kill everyone on your way to the Helmet, but by killing Victor, you will draw to much attention. Without Helmet, Victor is as much valuable as a dead rat. Mr. Oranje: What about the tons of guards protecting the Helmet? LMS: That's my problem, not yours. Anymore questions? Team Helmet: No Mylord! LMS: Then leave and remember, the only ones you talk to are your partners! Team Helmet: Yes Mylord! Hail Mighty Kaliphlin! Hail Glorious Mpya Stedor! We Die for the I.A.M.S.! Well, the part of Team Blade is almost completely the same, so I won't do it too. Their task is simply to kill Victor Revolword. After the I.A.M.S.-members left, only LDM and LSM are in the room, their bodyguards outside. LDM: Why 4 in Team Blade? LMS: Because at least 2 of them will die. I don't trust one of our newest members, so I hope to get rid of him without having provoking trouble in the I.A.M.S. . If I am wrong, nobody will ever know. LDM: I see. Now it is up to us to do the most fun part. I am glad I finally can fight a good old fashioned battle again LMS: How many soldiers will you lead? LDM: 75 mounted knights, 70 dismounted Alleenridders, and then around 200 other soldiers. The 3 years of Winter started in Atlarka, so King Donkon will arrive in a few days with 30 norsemen to help us. The other 200 soldiers will stay in Mpya Stedor to defend this city and our neighbours. Sir Tomvaximus will takeover control again Probably some other Lords and sirs will join our army on our way to Cedrica LMS: You will do well my friend! I hope our paths cross eachother again very soon! Good luck Dama! LDM: me too, good luck Max! Part 2 : Embrace yourself: Winter is coming by boat! A few days later, almost hundred proud Atlarkian Warships and Tradegalleys set anchor in the Ghuba-ya Biashara. 2 of them sailed towards the Bay of Great Mpya Stedor. Once arrivde there, small rowboats left them, heading toward the inner city of the glorious city. At the same time a group of small Mpya Stedori Tradevessels headed to the Atlarkian fleet, full of provision, weapons, slaves, ... to sell to them. Once some of the small rowboats passed the 2 colossal Harbor Towers, a lot of citizens started cheering and yelling "Atlarka!". Not only because some of them have Atlarkian blood in them, but mostly because in these unsave times, every group of soldiers are welcome. And King Donkon II, he arrived with 30 brave berserkers. And their families as well. The reason? The next years will be Winter again in Atlarka. And winters, they are really cold there. Whole cities are covered in snow. So the only option is that what they already do for centuries: raiding. Only the youngsters between 16 and 25 stay in Atlarka. Once they made it through the Winter, they can call theirselves real men and from that moment on, they are allowed to participate in the raids. So a few weeks ago, hundreds of ships left the Guild of Atlarka, heading to every corner in the world. Plundering, raiding, raising, ... every small town or big city on their trip. But as King Donkon II is a close friend of Lord Damaximus, he offered his aid to Historica. Not only those berserkers, but also the promise to not raid any village in Historica (except maybe some of the isles in the west of Avalonia ) Together with his help, Lord Damaximus is hopefully one step closer to get rid of that idiot wizzard. Part 3 : A march in April Now that King Donkon II has arrived and the preparations were made, it was finally time to march to Cedrica. The sun was good for the troops (not too hot) and the wind pushed them forwards. A lot of colourfull flags accompanied them, making it a joyfull sight. It would be a matter of weeks before they will reach Cedrica! (the 45 mounted Alleenridders - note, right after this painting, Lord Max Samu disappeared to anwser the call of MacLean) Every now and then, they passed a small village or some workers rebuilding something that was once a house before the elementals destroyed it. Lord Damaximus stopped everytime to talk with the people living at those place to give them hope about the future Chapter II : The one and only tower Note: the painter went gambling in Lost Vega, so no pictures from now on off at this moment Prologue: No Queens Crossing Queenscross It was the 16th hour of the day when Lord Damaximus and his cavalry army arrived at Queenscross. On their way, they heard terrible stories about the situation so that's why he decided to lead his mounted knights to the battlefield. 60 colourfull Alleenridders and 32 heavy armored swordsmen and lancers. But against all odds, they saw only bad guys trying to save their life by fleeing. Well they stayed alive, but they were easily hunted down and taken prisoner. One of them was even one of their most feared generals, General Pastroo!! The chasing lasted until the rest of the army arrived at the ruined city. The campment doctors started running around, helping as much wounded soldiers as possible. In the meantime, Lord Damaximus went to the Forum where all the other leaders, generals and heroes where to congratulate them and to start chatting about the future actions. A few days later, they continued their trip to Cedrica. A lot of soldiers from Queenscross joined the army of Lord Damaximus. He also heard from his I.A.M.S.-spies that he would not be the only one marching to Cedrica. Part 1: Knock Knock - Who is there? - Justin - Justin Who? - Justin Army Really early in the morning, a red sun peeping far away at the horizon, the soldiers finally saw the big tower of Cedrica rising up. But once they came closer and closer, they noticed the once so beautifull blue-grey stones were now as dark as the night that was just gone. Smoke came out of thousands of spots, but too big to be normal. The whole city was burning and demolished. The closer they came, the clearer it became that they didn't just burned down random houses, but they really made it impossible to reach the central tower. Clearing the paths will last days and Lord Damaximus and his army would have absolutely no defence against the elementals who were patrolling around. Lord Damaximus cursed. He had to find a way to distract the army of Revolword very quickly. Luckily some messengers arrived, reporting that the other armies will start besieging the city in a few hours, when the sun was at his highest point. Lord Damaximus ordered to make the catapults and ballistas ready. He gave King Dragonius XXV of Drakrydar some orders so they could kill enemies with their dragons. Part one of the masterplan was almost finished! Part 2: Ninja's Don't Need No Knock Knock's Dark as the shadows, 4 Black Ninja's were silently hopping from dark spot to dark spot. One of them carrying a small sack. Only Mr. Oranje already visited the Tower of Cedrica, so thanks to his hints and to some plans, the other 3 found easily their way in the building without being caught yet. The higher they came the smaller the group as some were left behind to make sure the escape-plan would work. Mr. Oranje and Mr. Wit almost arrived at the place where Revolword was and the Elemental Helmet with him. Part 3: Licence to Sneak Dolas & Ohnsel, the 2 Ninja Assassins, looked at each other and nodded. Silently they left the colonne of marching Soldiers of the Hand and sneaked into another group. They had been doing this already since they killed 2 scouts and took their clothes outside the city this morning. With the disguise on, they could walk anywhere in the Tower of Cedrica without getting suspicious. But by group hopping, it was easier and more fun to reach the highest levels of the Tower. Only a few more to go before they would arrive at the place where Revolword was overviewing the ruined city of Cedrica. Chapter III: The Return Of The Multiple Kings Part 1: A Dance Of Blades Dolas & Ohnsel were guarding a really useless door, but nobody really noticed it. From where they were standing, they could easily see the door leading to the room where Revolword was. They only needed a victim now... Minutes went by... Only a few minutes left till the big show would start... And like he was sent out by the Gods, one of Revolwords captains just turned around the corner, completely alone. Dolas & Ohnsel silently walked to him and took him prison while putting a poisoned sword in his hands. With the necessary feeling for drama, they accused the poor captain for wanting to assassinate Revolword and dragged him accross the hallway to the guards guarding the door leading to Revolword. Getting inside his room never was so easily as the two doorguards wanted to see how Victor would kill this "traitor". While everyones attention was drawn to the captain, Dolas quickly looked around and saw a quick shadow moving. The next thing happened in a few seconds during timeframe: Dolas pushed the captain and Ohnsel came forward to act like he would give the poisoned sword to Revolword. The moment Revolword came too close, his head (with according white beard) was flying in the air. Meanwhile Dolas disarmed and killed the 2 doorguards before they even could say "huh?". The captain was to affraid to say something so before he even realised he had to warn the others, Dolas & Ohnsel disappeared. The only thing the captain saw while realising what happened, was a black shadow moving quickly before it disappeared as well through the balcony. Part 2: A Feast For Crows "What the Nocturnus happened????? How the Nocturnus could they possibly find us??? Nobody knew about our route!" Mr. Withaar was furious. They lost Mr. Paars on their way to the hide-out and some unknown archers hit Mr. Oranje. Mr. Wit: "I don't know, but we have to stay calm and wait until Sir Fre Poah comes! And more important, we have to stay low because they are in the neighbourhood." Mr. Withaar: "Someone of us informed our enemies! And where the Nocturnus is Mr. Paars or Sir Fre Poah!" Mr. Wit: "Please calm down, let's occupy ourselves with Mr. Oranje, he is bleeding like an Avalonian..." Mr. Oranje: "I am fine, I think. Where are you guys from?" Mr. Wit: "Amenor" Mr. Withaar: "Shut up Mr. Wit, we are not supposed to tell our secrets, even not against eachother!" Mr. Wit: "Oh come on, he is almost dying!" Mr. Oranje: "I've never been there. I am from Cedrica, that's why I am part of this group I think. How is Amenor?" Mr. Wit (smiles): "Like Kaliphlin, but richer, stronger and even more beautifull. There is no Guild or land that can match Amenor. But the cities are only controlled by the noble families. Most other residents are slaves until they reached the age of 45. Then they are a free man. At that age, he is already father of at least 15 kids, but none of them he will ever see. Only the kids he makes after his freedom will be his own kids and those will be born as free man as well. It maybe sounds cruel, but that's how we are raised. In 5 years, I will be a free man as well" (smiles again) "I tell you this because I assume you are not a slave like the rest of us?" Mr. Oranje: "No indeed. Our names, are they Amenori as well?" Mr. Wit (laughs really hard): "In Amenor we speak a lot of languages, but not Amenori! Our names are colours in the old language of Eilandica. 'Oranje' means 'Orange', 'Paars means Purple', 'Withaar' means 'Blonde', 'Wit' means 'White', 'Blauw' means 'Blue' and so on... Mr. Oranje: "So my name is Mr. Orange then?" Mr. Wit: "yeah. But I gonna look for a small creek to find water for you. Gonna be right back" ... Suddenly an enemy scout enters. Mr. Withaar quickly disarmed him and imprisoned him. Mr. Withaar : "Who are you?" Enemy : "..." Mr. Withaar : "Ok, I am not in the mood for this. It looks you can't listen, so you don't need this" (cuts off the ear of the enemy and is heading for the other ear) Enemy : (screams and shouts): "Aaaaah stop!! (cries) I am Avalonian, an A.A.G.!" Mr. Withaar : "aha, so you can hear what I say! How many of you guys are there and how the Nocturnus did you guys found us?" Enemy : "We're with 10. We have a rat among you guys" Mr. Withaar : "who?" (takes his knife) Mr. Paars comes in: "Daaaamn, that was one scary moment!" Mr. Withaar : "Glad you are alive! What happened?" Mr. Paars : "After I lost you guys, I tried to find another way to here, it's full of A.A.G.'s! Where is the Helmet?" Mr. Withaa r: "Here it is, we better bury it somewhere..." Mr. Paars: "I'll take care of that. Who the Nocturnus is that guy?" Mr. Withaar: "An A.A.G. scout, I'll take care of that" Mr. Paars leaves. Mr. Withaar: "So you were about to tell us who the rat was???" Out of nowhere, Mr. Oranje throws a knife, right into the heart of the A.A.G.-member. Mr. Withaar immediately realises that Mr. Oranje is the rat and draws his katana to slice the throat over of the rat. Mr. Wit comes in: "Stop it Mr. Withaar!" But Mr. Withaar didn't listened and came closer to Mr. Oranje. Mr. Wit, who really trusted Mr. Oranje saw no other way then throwing a knife in the back of Mr. Withaar, killing him. Mr. Oranje: "Thanks for helping me! But I am affraid you killed one of the good guys" After saying this, he took a small dagger and stabbed Mr. Wit. Without anyone noticing, Mr. Paars entered the room, watching the drama scene going on. Mr. Wit: "Nooooo! Why?" Mr. Oranje: "With this Helmet, the A.A.G. can take over every Guild in Historica! We can kill every single Nocturnian, burn every Mitgardian and enslave every Kaliphlinite! Avalonia will finally rule allover Historica again! My task was to infiltrate and let you guys do the work!" Mr. Wit fainted. Mr. Paars clapped in his hands, went to Mr. Oranje and whispered in his ears Mr. Paars "you Avalonian fool, you really thought we were only with 4 in here?" The last thing Mr. Oranje saw before he died were 10 Ninja Assassins, 9 of them holding a head in their hands. Sir Freh Poa: "Congratz Mr. Paars, you did your job! We get rid of a rat, a ninja who lost his mind and one who wasn't focused anymore. Time to burn this hide-out down..." Mr. Paars: 'What will happen to the Helmet?" Sir Freh Poa: "If the right person uses it, it can help restoring the villages and cities we like to be restored" Mr. Paars: "And it will make our foes think twice" Part 3 : A Game Of Thrones Lord Damaximus looks around him. Cedrica is no more. The only buildings that were left before the siege were now nothing more than a few bricks on a pile. They found the previous king dead in the cellars. But his son was alive. Long live the King of the ruins! Long live the King without home! Long live the Poor King! (sarcasm) Some Lords are loudly announcing that they will not accept the new King. Lord Damaximus neither. Historica is more divided than ever. War is almost a certitude. It is finally the chance for those puny hippies from the West to take up arms. Nobody can stop them as there is no powerfull ruler. Nocturnians can easily raid the Mitgardian cities as they won't get in trouble for doing that. Lord Damaximus looks to King Dragonius of Drakrydar XXV and King Donkon II of Atlarka. If it is true what they say, Sultan Steh of Amenor and King Mattiximus of Ximus are also sailing to Mpya Stedor. So finally the time has come to unite those 4 Guilds into one powerfull militaristic Empire. The Empire of the 4 Free Guilds as the only power they give to the Emperor is the command over their troops. And that emperor will be Emperor Damaximus of the Imperial Capital of Mpya Stedor. And maybe, Kaliphlin and Nocturnus will join very soon. And if everything went as planned, the future Emperor Damaximus will have a small thing to convince Avalonia and Mitgardia to do the same... ------------------------------------------------- The End of the first Chapter of GoH ---- & The Beginning of Chapter II of GoH --------------------------------------------------------------- Thanks for reading everything and commenting!

The windows are made from high quality gold from Amenor. In the past it came from Avalonia, but since some Avalonians (I am saying no names CBB) are blockading the traderoutes, we had to find a more valuable partner.

    Changing Clothes

    Prelude 2 of Chapter III : the Battle of Mpya Stedor Prelude 1: Evacuation of Mpya Stedor: Link "Tooooooooooooooooot" Everyone stopped doing their bussiness and looked around. How would the next toot sound? Hopefully not as long as the first one... Sir Tomvaximus walked to the balcony of the Palace, looking to the harbour, more specific to the bay before the harbour. As it was a "toot" and not a "boing", it meant that the watchtower has spotted unknown vessels. And indeed, 3 mighty war-galleys were coming closer and closer. Sir Tomvaximus tried to remember from where he recognised them. Meanwhile, the city was still so quiet, that you could hear the meermaids gossiping in their clan, a few miles further. And then suddenly: "Toot toot" The people on the streets started cheering! Reinforcements to help us!!!! Sir Tomvaximus hurried to the harbour, jumped in a row boat (he was lucky that the rowmaster could grab him, otherwise he would have fallen in the water) and headed to the greatest of the 3 vessels. When he saw the heraldry on the sails, he remembered that the ships came from Eastgate. Eastgate!!! The other side of Kaliphlin!!! *Captain Robero* "Greetings, you must be Sir Tomvaximus? I am sent by Petera Maclean, commander of Eastgate and the Gear Co. I am here to help you in your upcomming battle!!" *Sir Tomvaximus* "Oh blessed Lord! You come just in time! How many soldiers have you brought?" *Captain Robero* "Well, 70, but because they are real sailors, they are archers and not really soldiers!" *Sir Tomvaximus* "Is no problem! Feel free to use our armour and the bows and arrows from our Elite Archers! We will give them a crossbow, as they are also trained for that!" And so, 70 brave sailors from the Gear Co landed in Mpya Stedor and went straight to the Gatehouse for changing clothes: (new picture: ) C&C welcome!!!! I really enjoyed building this
  19. Prelude to Chapter III, Battle of Mpya Stedor Prelude: (link to previous part of the story) As Lloth told Lord Damaximus, the selfcalled Queen Valsharess was on her way to Mpya Stedor. Razing every little building on her way. It didn't take so long before sir Tomvaximus (who is in control of Mpya Stedor in absence of Lord Damaximus) realised that the strength of his city would be tested very soon. Luckily for him, Sultan Steh V of Amenor recently arrived with some fearsome soldiers as a gift for the city. But the other promised reinforcements from King Mattiximus (Ximus) and King Donkon II (Atlarka) were still somewhere sailing towards here. Every day, Sir Tomvaximus still hoped that the watchers would yell they are arriving. But the chance that they would be on time shrinked with the hours passing by. Sir Tomvaximus looked at the map in front of him and placed the flag of Victor again some closer to his city. Within a week, the battle will start... Evacuation in Mpya Stedor: The golden clock, high in the gatehouse tower, banged slowly. Over and over again... Everyone expected this, so everyone had already packed their stuff. But still, the tears of crying babies could be heard at Peregrinus. The fathers helped their wifes with carrying their goods to the docks. Here they kissed each other goodbye, hoping to see their partner alive again... Harbor slaves loaded the sloops with crates, barrels and women with their childs. The captains row the sloops to the ships in the bay. If Mpya Stedor would lose the battle, they can quickly sail out, to other safer continents. (click on this picture (only this one) to see it in better quality) C&C ofcourse welcome!! Some notes: *I used this MOC to test my designs for the docks in the city *First time I have no studs on the flour *The water is kinda boring, but that's because all my round tiles are incorperated in another MOC atm (see the teaser for the battle)
