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.

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.

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?

Overview of the whole build in the spoiler below
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!
