  1. The Tale of Doctor Alfredson of Corrington: Chapter 4 Chapter 1 : Embarking on towards Adventure. Chapter 2 : The Voyage of the Autumn Blossom. Chapter 3 : Rehearsal in Rassilon Character list in spoiler brackets. The Khan's Stallion was not the best tavern in Rassilon nor was it the loudest however, both those titles belonged to Marco's but what the Khan's Stallion was, was close it was very near to the bandstand where Satoshi, Ragnar and Calder had listened to the Weelond Players. "Well how does one find Labourers to hire?, ." "Rassilon is a place full of opportunities, we just have to hope we find one" "Well I doubt people will just show up out of nowhere and ask for a job." Two rough looking blokes came together in front of them, one of the had come from the concert, whereas the other had just exited the Khan's Stallion, yet the men stood together and clearly had ties. Ragnar headed closer to the men and they neared him, surprisingly eager to strike up a consersation with strangers on the street. "I saw you fellows down by the bandstand, did I not overhear you looking for workers?" "You did." "Me and my friend here would be willing to volunteer for such a position and for a very reasonable fee too" "Deal!" "What, are you just going the hire the first people, you see! No background checks or anything!" "You said We should get this over with quickly." "This was not quite what I had in mind." "Trust me chaps, you won't regret it." The other ASTG marines returned bringing with them a cannon from the local factory. "Lovely craftsmanship, that will do nicely." The marine turned to face Ragnar "Yiroe said we were to assist you with your studies whilst we waited for him and the doctor to finish their duties." "Splendid, why don't we start here, find out how a tree can grow simply from sand with little proper soil, exciting no?!" "It sounds great in theory but I think that the fine people of Rassilon probably don't want you laying your, uh whats it called...?" "Quadrat" "That's it, thank you laddie, yes , they probably don't want you laying your quadrat across the street." "Not the mention the city environment will probably have an affect on your results." "Ah yes, a fair argument, I suppose, We'll head away from civilisation to carry out our field work." "Good call" Out of earshot of the Laborers Calder again addressed his grievances to Ragnar, something Ragnar and now Satoshi were becoming used to. "Do those men not look like brigands to you?" "Calder, they are just men out for an honest living, no more dangerous than a simple insect like an ant." Calm down Laddie, you seem to think everyone in this town is some sort of pirate, which is quite plainly, absurd" "They did have a skull and crossbones as the flag on their fort!" "Fair point" Satoshi replied chuckling. Little did Ragnar know that the ants you find in Rassilon are the size of a man's head with venom that will paralyse you with one bite. "Argh Aiie, Ahh!!!!" OOC: Out of the Mocs I've built for BotBS so far (including some I haven't yet published") this one has to be my favourite. I think I'll start a list of the chapters in my signature, anyway thanks for looking I hope you had fun, and as always C and C are most welcome. Bonus pictures on Flickr and in the spoiler tag below.
  2. The Tale of Doctor Alfredson of Corrington: Chapter 6 Chapter 1 : Embarking on towards Adventure.Chapter 2 : The Voyage of the Autumn Blossom.Chapter 3 : Rehearsal in Rassilon Chapter 4 : Hurriedly hiring help. Chapter 5 : Sample site 1 Character list in spoiler brackets. Whilst his crew were busy helping doctor Alfredson, Yiroe when off in the other direction with the ships physician to attend to his private business. They started their journey in Rassilon and followed ten mile creek upstream. Dotted along the riverside were several odd stautes, Yiroe and Ruri followed this odd trail in the depths of the island. "What do you know about the headquarters?" "Not much, I haven't been to the head quarters since the relocation." "Halt, you have entered onto occupied land, leave now and never reuturn' 'Stand down marine, this is captain Yiroe, he is a very important memeber of the the all seasons trade guild' (aside to Yiroe) 'sorry about that, he's new at the job and is terrified of the sea rats finding out that we're squatting on their territory.' "Thank you. Are the other captians ready?" "They are all in there, waiting only for you" He looked down at the sealed satchel, "And your delivery." The ASTG's hidden fortress on the Nest of Thieves had been built extraordinarily quickly following the ASTG's removal from the lotus kingdom. The statue that loomed over the entrance was of a four armed warrior but instead of weapons in each of his hands there was a intricately painted ornament to represent each season, there was a pink quince for winter, a bouquet of Pleione flowers for spring, a nectarine for summer and a crisp red oak leaf for autumn/fall. Lady Red Winter was in charge of the all seasons trade guild, she saw Yiroe's arrival through the open doorway. There was symbolism behind most of the ASTG's designs even the placement of the captains on the council. Yiroe stood nearest the door because he dealt with international relations, Kanjō stood next to the armoury as he was in charge of military, Josei stood by the ladder as she was in charge of relations with the nobles and people of higher classes and Lady Red Winter was deepest into the building as she led the company. "Everyone is here" he nodded at Lady Red Winter . " Yes, good. The council of the captains is now in session. Yiroe you have the delivery?" "Yes, here it is." Yiroe placed the sack onto the table, Lady Red Winter took it and asked the other captains to guess it's contents. When opened the contents were revealed as a single key.It was a key, but what does it open? OOC: Thanks for taking a look as always C and C are most welcome. I've started a list of the chapters in my signature, also there are loads of bonus pictures on Flickr. I've been very busy during June and I have a few more freebuilds and stuff already built and photographed but I might have to wait a while before I post them.
  3. The Tale of Doctor Alfredson of Corrington: Chapter 2 Chapter 1 : Embarking on towards Adventure. Character list in spoiler brackets. The Autumn Blossom was an odd ship. It belonged the All Seasons Trade Guild (ASTG),they were a group of traders from the Lotus Kingdom. It had been built in Corrington but was stylised to better to fit the style of the foreigner's small fleet. Of the four ships that the guild had in Northern Halos and it's colonies the Autumn Blossom was the smallest. It did however still retain a striking visage with an excessive number of lanterns.The vessel was staffed by a small crew of ASTG marines who were ever present on the ship and slept in shifts to ensure that there were always hands on deck. Ragnar Alfredson and his apprentice had brought an incredible amount of equipment with them, more than Yiroe had presumed.After all their cargo was loaded Calder Norrington headed up onto the ship. Calder headed up the ladder causiously. "Are you sure this is safe?" "Absolutely, It is perfectly safe ,don't fret" Ragnar laid back in the row boat and took in his surroundings. The Autumn Blossom easily dwarfed the little rowboat, and Alfredson was intrigued by the Lotus Kingdomish lanterns that adorned the vessel. After everything was stowed on-board Yiroe briefed Ragnar and Calder of the planned route of the journey, Ragnar and Yiroe had already agreed upon most of the details "We will be stopping at the town of Rassilon and then our next port of call will be Quinnsville" Ragnar nodded but Calder was aghast. "What!, we are going to stop on a pirate island and hang about in a pirate town!? Surely this is pure folly!" "I have business in Rassilon, stopping there is non-negotiable. You'll be fine, don't let the tall tales of drunken bragards upset you, Rassilion is perfectly safe" Calder was not fooled by this but he stopped his dissent nonetheless. Yiroe continued "Whilst in Rassilion, I'll leave to attend to my business. My crew will contract us some labourers while we are there, they will also pick-up some new cannons for the ship. However this shouldn't take them too long and you are welcome to their assistance if you should need it." "Need assistance for what exactly?" "To, um" Yiroe had to pause to allow his words to come to him "well, To study the habitats there, uh, is that not what you do?" "That's sounds like an excellent idea!" Ragnar was clearly a lot more enthusiastic about stopping at the Nest of Thieves than his apprentice. " I hear they have wonderful Palm trees!" This was not Ragnar's first time in the new world, however leaving the mainland was a new experience to Calder and he felt uneasy about the trip. That was not his only discomfort, as he found that the gentle sway of the boat left him feeling rather queasy. He went below deck to see the ship's physician, Doctor Ruri. "Not much we can do about this, I suggest you get some fresh air" ILuckily for Calder the ocean breeze was accessible from both below deck and up on the deck. "What's troubling you?" "Something feels off about this whole deal we've got going." "You do love to worry, don't you Calder, I'm sure everything will work out fine. What ever you think is off about this, tell me one thing that makes you suspicius." "Well for the first thing, why didn't they dock at the port, why wait for us out at ocean?, Tell me that's no suspisious!" "Oh Calder you are too cautious for you're own good, It was most likely just a measure to avoid docking fees." Calder remained unconvinced, and continued to assert his suspicions to Ragnar whose laissez-faire attitude was a result of either eccentric naivety or a genuine effort to stop Calder's growing concerns but which of these it was was a mystery to Calder. Yiroe sat alone in the captain's cabin, he inspected the payment, he was most curious as to what it was ,for that was a point that Lady Red Winter had neglected to divulge. He dared not open the bag as the seal had been especially designed to prevent tampering. The winds were generous and carried the Autumn Blossom across the open ocean towards the sea of storms. OOC: This is the second part of Doctor Alfredson's story, thought this chapter had a greater focus on Calder, I hope you all like it. C and C are welcome. (This is the first boat I've moc'd for BotBS, the next one will probably be more orthodox.). I hope that what I've done with the ASTG and the Lotus Kingdom is alright, if not let me know and I can edit the text. I've hyperlinked some of references to other peoples builds ans settlements. Bonus Images are in the spoiler and on flickr. Thanks to @Bregir for the background suggestion.The lanterns on the back were taken from the temple of resurrection set from ninjago.
