  1. Captain Nordau, most feared blackflag captain of the Brick Seas, returns to terrorize the oceans! Took him long enough. He's got a slight upgrade from the rowboat though! Whew - I definitely did not expect this to be such a lengthy project when I first started out, haha! This was supposed to be a three week build (ikr, ) back when I started it at the beginning of 2020, hahaha - and then I had the crazy idea of trying to get it to BrickWorld 2020... and then covid happened and well, three years later, here we finally are! And yes, I did make that ridiculous trip from South America to Chicago with this thing, hahaha! Oh, and in the meantime, I got an amazing offer from the generous guys at Lightailing to review their lights and sound effect boards, so yeah, that's been awesome too! Be sure to check out my full review/lighting guide on Innovalug's website! But (spoiler alert! ) I do highly recommend their stuff if you're looking for high quality custom lights that are sturdy and reusable to boot! Alright, to the pics! I know this is what y'all are here for, Oh yeah, and I forgot to mention - of course it has an interior! (Yes I'm mad - did I already say that? ) Starting from the front and working our way around back - up in first deck's fore we've got the galley, with a hearty stew going and a shark (not in this picture) dangling from the upper gun-deck for up coming messes But it was to be pork chops today! Get back here! A swarthy pirate stows away the barrels of rum in the hold below, While a petty officer keeps an eye on his private stash... At the stern we have the powder room, with kegs upon kegs of ammunition stowed away for piratical very peaceful expeditions. Not sure the midshipman ought to have a lantern in there... or about those stern cannons, but anyways! Moving to the upper deck, a swashbuckling pirate watches over the map, Not much to fear from these Imperialists though... Don't forget to make your bed (hammocks are too expensive )! Oh yes, this poor fellow stays busy - at least he's got good company! What's this? Looks like someone may have escaped - well, it wasn't that Carno governor or his daughter anyways... Cabin boy by the apple barrel. Mutineer's tip - either make the barrel too small or the apples too big, Torch 'em! Fire away, me hearties (this is actually the first deck, but oh well)! Here's the real stash - Only the parrot and the quartermaster know these secrets... The cook taking a break after a long day of work, A couple of interior pics before moving above decks - In these you can get a better look at the shark, haha. There are also a fiddler, another pig, and a sheep if you want to try to find them! What lies ahead? One never knows when you're roving on the endless seas. Where there are monkeys, there are... The governor's daughter, (Public relations with Carno isn't Captain Nordau's first priority...) Midships is... rather large, considering that this is the deck of a vessel! Meanwhile, high above... And reeeeaaally up high... And working our way toward the stern, where Captain Nordau scrutinizes everything himself, his trusty parrot by his side, A couple of mates chat together as they stare over the castle at the rolling waters far below, A closer look at that stern, what can I say (I love it! ) And, cannons firing! This looks... fun. And that, mates, is the Buccaneer's Dread! If I'm not mistaken, it be the largest physical ship in the Brick Seas yet - but I'd love for someone else to break that record before long! Hope you all have enjoyed this brief tour, and don't mind Captain Nordau plundering and raiding all your goods from now on... Yo, ho, ho, a blackflagging life for me! Phew! That was a lot of pictures! Hope y'all enjoyed them and didn't get tired there! A few stats: 117 studs at the waterline (3') 165 studs to point of bowsprit (4'3") ~58 studs crossbeam (1'7") ~170 studs tall (4'5") 40 flashing cannons (46 total) 36 crew (including skeletons, ) 72 gun galleon ~35 pounds Sound effects & 85+ lights Building time: 3 years 100+ hours of rigging A couple of days in sail making and sewing Brick numbers: I have no idea, Oh, and I almost forgot! Yeah, there's a video of that too A couple of behind the scenes and size comparison pics (I'm 5'10" for the record, haha) And, a link to my inspiration pic! Thanks for viewing, C&C welcome as always! Cheers!

  3. My micro prize class 5 is required to fly the black, so I present the Blackjack: It's a MOD of the ship in a bottle, similar to my previous El Genio, but with different style of sails and different color scheme, and some other minor alterations. I'm not sure if the dark orange works for the stern windows or not, but I wanted the overall color scheme to be subdued: Some more pics here: And the ship name will be even more appropriate once I renew my ongoing storyline with the currently-captured-by-the-Lotii Jack and Kate... All C&C welcome!
  4. "Are you quite sure this is a good idea, sir?" the mate asked the bowler-wearing gentleman. "We haven't exactly seen much success up until now... Which, by the way... How do you secure the funding?! "Never you mind the funding, my friend" he found himself being cut off. "One little cutter did not do the trick. A larger lugger did neither. But together! I have had them drawn up by the same line as the Rover and the Defiant, you see..." The Gentleman Privateer never gives up, despite a few... minor... setbacks. So hereby sistershipping the Rover and the Defiant as the Maverick (cutter) and Audacious (lugger).
  5. Maybe the arrival of the Rover cutter was not as recent as suspected, at least not judging from what has been achieved at Cutlass Cay, the hideout of the Gentleman Privateer, which was now nearing completion. The last of the guns are currently being swayed onto the battlements in final preparation of the hideout The very gentleman himself, fencing with one of his mates Birds-eye view of the hideout The gentleman privateer is always interested in a mutually profitable deal, so if any like-minded would be interested in setting up a small network of hideouts, or brokering access to Cutlass Cay, feel free to pm me. C&C welcome - I find I enjoyed building something entirely piratical for a change. :)

    Boardwalk Talk

    The infamous Captain Nordau and a representative of the Sea Rat port authorities take a walk on a Garveyan boardwalk in Freeport, and in the process a large bag of DBs and some papers change hands respectively... only time will tell where it all will go from here! But, little do they know, they are not alone - other ears are hearing every word that is said... And a shot of the infamous pirate Captain on the beach: Hello y'all! A little scene to officially inaugurate my Black Flag Captain's agreement with the Sea Rat authorities - the details of which, for the curious, are that which Captain Nordau has bribed bought the future silence of all Sea Rat port authorities (i.e., the location of the Captain's ship(s) won't be published in the KPA when he's in a SR settlement) in exchange for 5000 DBs and a Class 4 ship which he has given to the Sea Rat faction. And yep, we did get the court's approval and all, so all's fair and above board - figuratively speaking, you know Oh, and no, this is not the start of another ETWC monkey story, I just couldn't resist the urge to get at least one monkey in the scene! Was really happy with how the sea background worked out; and it was awesome getting to crack out that light yellow for the beach! Thanks for viewing, C&C are welcome as always!
  7. At an inn in Nova Terelli... The crew of the Cardinal's Shadow, enjoying their delicious-tasting drinks as they discuss the strange affairs of the last month on the Brick Seas - particularly the strange stuff with a certain ubiquitous pirate Captain... Suddenly, inexplicably, they all began to nod off to sleep, and despite their best efforts, they were all in the land of Nod within five minutes, dreaming, doubtless, of - well, we won't bother to get into that. But in case you happen to be wondering what was actually going on, shortly previously Captain Unrigged Nordau, having eluded the Nova Terelli officials (with the help of his loyal first mate, of course) - the affair in Rasillion, you see, was entirely a mistake, which, of course, the newspapers totally bobbled; as soon as he and his Sea Rat interceptors had had a good talk they had become capital friends, and he had only left them his little sloop as a gift in exchange for their help in getting him closer to Montario, which it was his goal to raid - anyhow... where were we? Right - shortly before, the good Captain, having given the officers the slip, had administered a bit of his favorite monkey-brewed potion to the crew's cups, which was, of course, the cause of the strange slumber. Then, rowing out to the ship, which was but lightly guarded in such a secure port as Nova Terelli, he had tossed the sentry overboard, and - again with his loyal first mate's most able help - commandeered the ship as his lawful prize. Well, perhaps the legality of it all might just be a little doubtful, but that obviously isn't the point... Well, there you have it! Thanks to Legostone for letting me run off with the Cardinal's Shadow in exchange for getting captured in my little Class 0 - this is definitely one fortunate pirate captain! Thanks for viewing, C&C are welcome as always!
  8. Otherwise known as, the Night's Shadow. Which sounds much more sinister... which, of course, was exactly the good Captain's intent. And if you happen be one of those people wondering why there are five oars sticking off a rowboat (as if his last boat wasn't small enough...) with only the Captain and a monkey on it, let me remind you that monkeys do have four hands. Or, if you are Captain Braunsfeld, you might argue that Captain Nordau can row with both his hands and his feet. We're getting a little off topic here, however... Just a little Class 0 rowboat from me! Designed, obviously, to be able to execute cunning raids in the dead of night... (I did not just say that out loud, ) (@Capt Wolf, hmhmm, raiding forms? ) Thanks for viewing, C&C are welcome!
  9. Previously: The Buccaneer's Dread Sinking of the Shuriken Burglars! Captain Nordau Our mysterious Garveyan smuggler whistled along as his little sloop sliced through the calm sea. It was a fine, cloudless day somewhere near Terraversa, and it so happened that just one day before, the notorious pirate Unrigged Nordau had had the good fortune to sink an Eslandolan ship somewhere in the vicinity... a ship with a chest on board... "Aha! Shiver me timbers, now what's this?" exclaimed our smuggler with a wink to no one in particular (he was the only one there), as he caught sight of a little sand bar sticking up out of the ocean, with a half-sunken object up against it, doubtless driven there by the waves and tide. "I thought so." And shifting course, he made way for the island, leaping out and drawing a pistol from his coat the instant the sloop's keel grated on the sand. He looked around in curiosity and caution. This chap was enough of a pirate, anyways, to know that you should always look twice if there happens to be a skeleton leaning up against the tree beside you. (In this case, however, it was only the remains of a poor marooned Mardierian who had been there long before the chest ever arrived). But, as the saying goes, better safe than sorry. Having concluded that the skeleton was merely a coincidence (not to mention its obvious aesthetic necessity - our smuggler was a adept at all the classic pirate stuff and probably knew exactly what was going on; a treasure chest is nothing if there's not a skeleton nearby) and that the confused frog posed no real threat, he carefully hauled the chest up onto the sand, and popped it open. "Capital, capital," he ejaculated, "the very ticket! Now, if that ain't just the thing." He slipped his hand through the treasure, quickly, before snapping the lid shut again and heaving it into the sloop. "1,000 Doubloons," he muttered under his breath... And a couple of fig-less shots: One last overview: A continuation of this story (I've got way too many going at the moment ), explaining how Captain Nordau got a hold of 1000 of my doubloons besides the 6000 from Kai. I'll be licencing this little sloop too and sending it out as a Black Flag (under Unrigged Nordau, of course), and will certainly be continuing this story when I get the time! ... whenever that might be I've also got that duel story with Titus, and the other mysterious Captain guy, and one or two other things up my sleeve that have got to get done, but...! Thanks for viewing, C&C are welcome as always!
  10. The sign-up deadline for the next Adventure MRCA and Trade MRCA is February 25, midnight, anywhere in the world. ---------------- Players can sign up for both the Adventure MRCA and the Trade MRCA, but individual ships can only participate in one or the other, not both simultaneously. To sign-up for the Adventure MRCA, read the rules here and then sign-up via this form. To sign-up for the Trade MRCA, read the rules here and then sign-up via this form. For a ship to take part in either MRCA, it must be licensed. You can license your ship under the new ship rules via this form. ---------------- NEW RULES: Raise the BLACK FLAG! When a player submits his/her MRCA orders and wishes to go "all pirate," but not have it reflect on the faction, he/she can choose a new "black flag" option on the ship's MRCA order. All ships listed on that order will then, rather than be considered Sea Rats (or whatever faction the player is from), be considered “black flag” pirates. Once a ship has been registered as a “black flag” pirate AND committed an act of piracy, it retains its “black flag” status until some external event (capture, trial, pardon, etc.) wipes its slate clean. A player won't be committed to being a pirate going forward, but each black flag ship will be. Note that this requires players to follow the honor system and continue to check the “black flag” option for the ship in subsequent MRCAs (until we have a way to track it automatically). The MRCA forms will also have a “black flag” targeting option for players wishing to hunt pirates. Note that black flag pirates will be distinct from independent pirates. Also note that the MRCA forms have not been updated yet, so if you plan on raising the black flag on a ship this month, wait for us to update the forms before you submit your orders use the ship license form. Repairing your ship You have probably noticed the "damaged" results in the MRCA results the last few months. To this point, it has had no effect on the game. Starting this month, damaged ships will incur higher upkeep costs the month they are damaged. There is no need for players to do anything, just know that your maintenance costs will reflect the cost of repairing the damage. FYI. ---------------- Help Wanted: Players who have some time the two weeks after the MRCA are asked to help out with the AMRCA. The Adventure MRCA requires some GMing, and the more help we have, the quicker we can turn things around and keep the MRCAs on a monthly schedule. Contact @Bregir or @Legostone if you're interested in helping out. ---------------- Consult this map for trade zone numbers before submitting any forms: And here are the trade values as of February 6, 618.

  11. Hello Everybody, I'm back with a new MOC. This time I'll do the AC4 ships from Black Flag Jackdaw very popular PC game series. I will share with you as you make pictures. Currently, 600-odd part. LDD design was not over yet. But it was already part of 3000. Scorpion's Soul is not up to part, I think. But Jackdaw's really a beautiful ship. And I try hard to emulate. Have a nice day lads ...
