  1. --------------------------------------------- Gotheborg (Maxim I) ------------------------------------------------------------------ April 15th 618 AE Captain Bruno Proximus could not sleep well. He was so excited about the big day tomorrow. After years of loyal service to MAESTRO, commanding smaller trade vessels, he was now given command over the Gotheborg. The biggest vessel in the MAESTRO fleet so far. Named after the oldest fortress of Stedor, located near the harbour: Gotheburgt (translated: Fortress of Gothe, who was the son of Dama of Ximus, who founded Stedor). to A beautifull class 8 New Terraman, armed with 30 guns. In his imagination, he already could see himself standing on the stern, overwatching the vessel. In his dreams, an Oleon officer somehow managed to get tied to the mast, while an Oleon sailor was sea sick. But more important, Lord Maximilian Damaximus and his wife were also on board, approving the qualities of Captain Bruno Proximus. Such a nice dream... But it still is a dream, as the real version luckily has a rudder... --------------------------------------------- La Comète (Legostone) ------------------------------------------------------------------ While dreaming, an other new MAESTRO vessel joined the trip. La Comète, a powerfull heavy frigate with amazing details. Built by the never stopping ship warves of Jerome Monezterrel ( @Legostone ) ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Thanks for watching! For full pics of the Gotheborg you will have to wait a little bit. I hope you enjoy the teasers! Gotheborg will be licenced as a Class 8 by me La Comète as a class 6 (by Legostone)
  2. Settlement Name: Trador Ownership: MAESTRO in name of Eslandola Location: La Sombra, Nova Eslandola Archipello Mayor: Sir Yohannes Ethiximus ( @Maxim I ) Governor: Lord Maximilian Damaximus ( @Maxim I ) Settlement status: City Settlement points: 67 Trade Value: 207 db Who can own property in Trador: anyone when asked permission (note, as I will build more than I can licence, feel free to buy property from me). Who can freebuild in Trador: anyone, but discuss it first with me (for location etc) Extra: When planning building something in Trador, please advice with @Maxim I as he is going to make a moduled city.

Post in this thread and fill out the web form. Etymology: Trador comes from "Trade" and the Dutch word "Dorp" (village) - Island information Island #: 13 Claimed by EslandolaNickname: The ShadowGeographical Features: This Island has a natural bay ideal for a trading post. The island is well guarded by steep rocky coasts on most sides, and the water is deep.Rumors: More than one sailor has independently reported seeing a massive black shadow in the sea circling around the island. The more suspicious of sailors suspect this is a sea monster, or sea monsters, lurking beneath the foam to swallow their ships whole, while the more academic postulate this could be a school of fish, indicating good fishing waters, or even a pod of whales, drawn to this island for unknown reasons. Nevertheless, sailors, and the natives, have avoided this island. - Location of Trador: - Soldiers stationed in Trador 1st MAESTRO Regiment | MAESTRO | General Samu the Dragon Trador 1st Company | Trador | Lieutenant Wilhelmus La Sombra Forts protecting Trador Fort Coconut | MAESTRO | small | 1 sp | 5 value Merchant Gate | MAESTRO | medium | 2 sp | 10 value External Forts protecting Trador Fort Brickwall | Eslandola | Royal Fortress of Puerto Desafio - List of licensed properties in Trador: Art & Culture (8/8) Wellness The fountain of youth Spa | MAESTRO | Medium | 2 sp | 10 vp Culture & Festivals Preparing for the Winter Solstice Festival | Gedren_y | Large | 3 sp | 15 vp Parks Poseidon's Park (Fun at the Park) | Blackdeathgr | small | 1 sp | 5 vp Training Day | Bodi | small | 1 sp | 5 vp Trador Park | Captain Braunsfeld | 1 sp | 5 vp Artisan (10/10) Pubs The Three Flower Inn | MAESTRO | Medium | 2 sp | 10 vp Trador Soccer Field | Maxim I | Medium | 2 sp | 10 vp Golden Fish Inn | Maxim I | Small | 1 sp | 5 vp Green Door Pub | Capt Wolf | Small | 1 sp | 5 vp Beer Garden | Ayrlego | small | 1 sp | 5 vp Trador Bar | Mesabi | smal | 1 sp | 5 vp Shops Mme Bijoux Accessoires | Maxim I | Small | 1 sp | 5 vp Clothes Shop | MKJoshA | small | 1sp | 5 vp Commerce (14/14) Quays Merchant Quay | Maxim I | Royal | 5 sp | 30 vp Trador Beach Quay (Tenotclaxcan Training) | Faladrin & MAESTRO | Large | 3 sp | 15 vp Services Mme Camille Real Estate Agency | Maxim I | Small | 1 sp | 5 vp Warehouses Empty Warehouse (New Trador Soccer Competitors) | Dr_Spock | small | 1 sp | 5 vp Unclaimed Warehouse (Leaving Trador) | Mesabi | medium 2 sp | 10 vp The Apple Cider smugglers | Maxim I | Medium | 2 sp | 10 vp Education (5) Trador Agency of Exploring & Culture | MAESTRO | Small | 1 sp | 5 VP Trador Libary | Maxim I | small | 1 sp | 5 VP Trador University - Department of Chemical Engineering | MAESTRO COR | Medium | 2 sp | 10 VP | Trador School | Silentwolf | Small | 1 sp | 5 vp Factory (8) Textile Trador Textile Factory | Capt.

  5. Trador Agency of Exploring & Culture An Adventure MRCA Story INDEX Summary Chapter 1: Exploring Chapter 2: Hoping for the best Chapter 3: A journey on a strange vessel Chapter 4: preparing festivities - - - - - SUMMARY Status: Prelude Participating members Chapter 1: MAESTRO Participating vessels Arcady Point of start: Trador Characters Emanuel Alejandro Izquierdo Troops None - - - - - Chapter 1: Into the unknown "Yes!" Emanuel Alejandro Izquierdo finally received his permission letter, received by the Trador Agency of Exploring & Culture. He raised the funds necessary for charting a small vessel and now he officially passed the exams to become an explorer! Too bad his idol, Jan Zwartbaard, could not be here today, as Jan Zwartbaard was summoned in Stedor to join Lord Maximilian Damaximus on his journeys. His destination? Fortune will tell!
  6. Prelude: ... (Eslandola Colonial Council, January 25th 618 AE) ... A few days later, at dawn: A Battalion of MAESTRO soldiers marched into the harbour. Under command of General Whitedragon, they boarded the anchored Sea Rat vessels. The Eslandolan soldiers quickly disarmed the Sea Rats without any harm or causalties as the Sea Rats understood they had a disadvantage and the Eslandolans came in peace. Aboard the Misfortune's Wrath, General Whitedragon summoned a clerk.declaring the Sea Rats vessels to be detained. All Sea Rats are free men, free to roam the pubs in Fuerto Unido, but misbehaving would not be accepted. But they had to stay in Fuerto Unido for the upcoming period. Asking who was in charge of the Sea Rats fleet, a guy with white cloak and golden skull on his bicorn was appointed as the most important Sea Rat. Little did the Eslandolans know the Sea Rats dressed up a common sailor and appointed him to be in charge. They even called him Captain Whitemouse, to mock with the famous Eslandolan General Whitedragon. Back in his office, General Whitedragon sent the following letter: ------------------- A MRCA response. It is now up to the Sea Rats. The letter could be recognised as an adapted copy of a famous Corrington letter. The build itself was fun. I wanted to recreate the style some Sea Rats builders are building their vessels and Black Sails was an inspiration as well.
  7. Special Elections for the Prio Sea Seat in the Colonial Council Recently, Mehit have seen the arrival of many Eslandolan vessels and men. It was finally time to launch the reconstruction works in the Native ruined village and Eslandola prepared a bunch of good workers to help the natives. It is here, in this buzzing activity that 3 characters stepped in front of the temporary house of the chief in charge of the reconstruction with a paper in hand. The holder of the paper was well known by the Mehuãtajir people because he is their actual Chief Apulo and now is fairly newly named Mayor of the Settlement of Mehit in name of the Crown of Eslandola. The lady dressed like an adventuress, is Lady Condora, an officer of the MAESTRO Green Messenger Agency in Trador and she just announced by letter the nomination of the Chief Apulo as Mayor of Mehit. Finally, the 3rd character is a man of science and is coming to helped the people in need here in Mehit : He is known as The Doctor Ayuda, a well reknown Doctor in Fuerte Unido. So, the 3 candidates took the time to speech to every worker in the Mehit construction site this morning. "Hear ye ! Hear ye ! By this present words, we, Chief Apulo, Doctor Ayuda and Lady Condora, are proud to announce our will to run for the Seat of the Colonial Council in the name of the Prio Sea Region ! We are here to offer you the best representation we can in the Colonial Council by : Firstly, making enter more natives in the Council, in order to encounter other tribes and create at term a Great Native Alliance inside the Eslandola Realm, the only Halosian realm that integrates New Terran Natives and treats them as Brothers and Equals. Secondly, develop the Mehit Settlement by speeding up the reconstruction. It will be by gaining more attention and more money from the Council. Thirdly, develop the communication routes the Green Messengers from MAESTRO are discovering to accelerate the in and out of important letters and news to the Council and to the Capital. This will be by building more fast ships and develop shipyards in our Region. And Finally, make sure that every citizen in Eslandola colonies, being New Terran native or Halosian, has a roof upon his head and good healthy conditions to live in our territory ! We are awared about the heavy task we will face and are ready to assume this responsibility ! Made in Mehit, the First of February 618." This is my build to officially present my mayor for Mehit and to present my team to the Special Elections for the Prio Sea Seat in the Colonial Council. Here is a better shot of the team itself :
  8. The influence of MAESTRO was already for a longer time extending the Eslandolan borders. So when Corrington asked for adventurers exploring their jungle, the Trador Agency of Exploring & Culture (a branch of MAESTRO) decided to set up an office in Jameston. An office that also would be used as a MAESTRO commercial office. Lars Stefano was appointed to be in charge of the office. Lars really hoped the explorers would come back before the deadline with their findings. But as no-one ever mapped the jungle, it was possible that the explorers were somewhere completely lost in the jungle. It was a shame that Jan Zwartbaard was now somewhere in Tellvok. MAESTRO really could have used the experience of their master explorer.... ---- Hope you enjoy the build!
  9. Buying A new Ship Licence Felipe de la Manazana being absent during his Pirate chase to obtain the second half of his treasure map, It was the captain of the Lady Hawk, el Senor Oliveira Da Manzao, who was commissioned by the fleet to buy more space for new ships. El Senor Oliveira Da Manzao used his stop by Elisabethtown to get an appointment in the Shipyards office. - Hello my dear Senor. Welcomed the shipyard master. - Hello, I am here to buy you a new spot to licence The Messenger and our next ships for felipe de la Manzana's fleet. - Alright, my dear senor,it will cost you 250 Dbs. - Here there are. And Oliveira Da Manzao paid the officer. - OK, Thank you ! Let's do this paperwork then... Here is just a little build in order to open me more ship space. Hope you'll like it.
  10. Octoberfest : The One Drink ! Apple Cider for all ! During Weelond Octoberfest, The MAESTRO Trade Company invested in a small beverage commerce in order to sell its famous Apple Cider. Now the tavern is open and has reach record sales during the Octoberfest festivities ! A very good start for the company ! The advertising in front of the tavern was probably for something in here. This is what we can read : "One drink to rule them all, One drink to find you, One drink to bring them all, and in tipsiness bind you" "Apple Cider !" Probably the epicness of this slogan made raise the sales at this record. The crowded street in front of the tavern is a good illustration of its success : Will be licensed as a small commerce in Weelond. C&Cs are welcome, thank you !
  11. In a small office in Stedor --- "Enter please!" Lord Maximilian Damaximus entered the small office of the Eslandolan Naval Official. "It is me!" "Good day Mr. Me. Can I have your last name as well please?", the official replied Maximilian was speechless for a second... "Seriously? I am Lord Maximilian Damaximus, Duke of Stedor. You know Stedor right, it is this fine city you are working in..." The official replaced his glass on his nose... "Legitation please..." "Next time I'll bring a proclaimer with me, and a whole orchestra for accompanying music... Legitation please... Come on, every kid knows me here in Stedor..." "I need some proof Mister Damaximus". After searching for a while in his pockets, Maximilian finally found an official paper in his pockets, sufficent enough to proof his identity. "Perfect! What is the purpose of your visit Mr Damaximus?" "I would like to expand my shiplevels please". "No problem, please sign here and here and here and here and here and here and here and here and hand me over the money please" With a sigh, Maximilian signed countless times and handed over the money. "I would also like to buy ship rights for MAESTRO please" "Sorry Mr Damaximus, it is noon and I fear I can't help you till 1 o'clock. Please come back later" Before he even realised what happened, Maximilian found himself outside the office again. Finding it completely ridiculous, he decided a nice walk along the quays would do him well". A few hours later, he returned back to the Eslandolan Naval Office and knocked on the official his door. "Enter please!" "Here I am again!" "Name and legitation please!" "Seriously??? I was here this morning!! Have you Corrington blood in your vains or what???" Maximilian throwed the legitation and a bag of money on the desk. "Here you are and here is the money for ship rights for MAESTRO. I guess I have to sign over there and there and there and there and there and there and there and there?" "Oh no sir, we choosed for easy administration for Trade Companies. You only have to sign here" Maximilian nodded his head. This is unbelievable... Anyway, that stupid administration is done. Let's start ERAII in style! --- edit --- Once again finding himself outside the building, a messenger arrived. "Lord Maximilian Damaximus, I am here to inform that Lord Monezterrell took care of the MAESTRO administration" "Darn it, you must be kidding me..."
  12. Trador is not only known for its applecider, it has also some of the best wines of New Terra: the Casa De Flores, famous for its unique aroma. The vineyard is a very popular attraction in Trador as visitors can follow a guide around the vineyard and drink some wine afterwards. Today, the soccer Teams of Prio, Royal Garvey Engineers and MAESTRO Engineers are visiting the vineyard. Meanwhile Lord Maximilian Damaximus and his wife taste the latest production of the wine. --- Thanks for watching! C&C welcome :) Will be licenced as a Large plantation This module is to be placed behind the Trador Merchant Quay (pictures of this somewhere in the future :p )
  13. With the evergrowing economy in Trador, MAESTRO founded a warehouse in Puerto Desafio. Due to its central location, it was the perfect base to trade with the surrounding villages. --- Will be licenced as a large commercial property (Challenge 5 (Eslandola) free licence/price for participating in every category) The road was really a struggle :p
  14. Just in time for the Trador Soccer Cup, the Apple Cider Brewery of Trador opened its production line. The world famous MAESTRO Apple Cider will be brewed here, with the same recipe as the Brewery in Elysabethtown uses. The production line is one of the most modern of its time, with an advanced transportation system to load horse-cars, vessels and sloops. (it actually works :D still some helping hands needed, but it does what it needs to do, lifting barrels at every possible position in the transport line) smashing the apples refilling with apples Trador Apple Cider Brewery by Maxim, on Flickr filling bottles Outside the factory, the sloops were being loaded --- The opening of the brewery also made Trador the first new colonial settlement in the Prio Seas to reach Large Town status! To celebrate, free glasses of Apple Cider were handed out! --- Thanks for watching! Will be licenced as large factory :)
  15. A Doctor for the refugees in Puerto Desafio Since the end of the Eslando-Mardieran war on Isla de Victoria, many refugees from the ancient Mardieran colonies went to find help in the controled areas of Eslandola new territory. Eslandola is welcoming all the war victims what ever be their past. Even the former soldiers of the Mardieran Army are welcome to settle in the new Puerto Desafio colony ! And to provide the basic first aid and health support for all this growing population, a Doctor was needed ! It is Doctor Ayuda, graduated in the Great Medical University of Nova Terrelli, who decided to answer to this need. He managed to save an ancient mardieran house from destruction near the quays of Puerto Desafio to open a Hospital in order to welcome the refugees. This build will be licensed as a Medium Artisan in Puerto Desafio in order to use my reward in the Challenge V. Of course C&Cs are welcome.
  16. Previous part: another belated party Wether the Royal Engineers were inside or outside Malto, those rumours can not be confirmed nor denied. Time will tell... Anyway, the Royal Engineers helped where they were really needed. The officers turned an old estate just outside Malto to their new headquarters to co-ordinate the aid. The name "Palacio De Desarollo Regional" literally means "Palace of Regional Development". A quick build, C&C is welcome :)
  17. Previous part: "A Belated party" Jan Zwartbaard returned to Trador with Prince Azte Hek, crownprince of the Azclaxcan tribes. His hate towards Mardierians was still alive and kicking. Especially after their visit to Mehit on their way home. Although Lakor was the Azclaxcan capital, Mehit was the most important village of the Azclaxcan kingdom. The coastal village is a melting pot between the landbased Azclaxcans and the seafaring Mehuãtajir. But just like Lakor, Mehit was burned to the ground by Mardier troops. Jan Zwartbaard found some survivors in Mehit as well and promised to send help. It was only back in Trador when Jan Zwartbaard heard about the recent events in Malto. Discussing the faith of the Azclaxcans with Lord Maximilian Damaximus, the latter decided the moment came to put the MAESTRO Regiment in Trador in play. The King of Garvey, residing in his property in Trador after the coronation of Lord Maximilian Damaximus as Prince of Garvey, wanted to make up for the heavy bombardements on Malto by his vessels, so he prepared the Royal Garvey Engineers to aid the people of Malto. So only a few hours after the arrival of Jan Zwartbaard, the Colour of the Wind, Purple Reign II, Purple Rain and 2 other Xebecs belonging to Garvey sent sail to Malto to help its citizens. Filled with food, resources and supplies and strong veterans who were eager to help the people of Malto. After dropping 1 Batallion of Elite MAESTRO soldiers at Mehit, for its rebuilding, the 2 vessels continued their trip and arrived the next day. 1 Batallion of Elite MAESTRO soldiers, 1 company of Royal MAESTRO Engineers and 1 company of Royal Garvey Engineers landed close to Malto as Corrington vessels did not let the Eslandolan vessels come closer to Malto. It was a pleasure to see however how much trouble the Corrington vessels had with manouvering in the shallow waters around Malto. Luckily the Eslandolans choosed to sail in Xebecs... The denial of passage should have been the first sign of the arrogancy of Corrington, but Lord Maximilian Damaximus still trusted his red friends and thought it would just be a standard procedure... It was when the rescuers marched towards Malto that they were stopped by a Corrington Commander... "Hold on" the Corrington officer yelled. "If you take another step forward, I shall be required by duty to open fire. I am under orders to protect the neutrality of this settlement with any means necessary, and I am already stretching my authority by meeting you thus. However, my orders insist upon the necessity of maintaining good relations with Eslandola and I understand that negotiations for the status of Nova Malto are underway." Sighing and sending a distraught glance at his Eslandian and Garvey counterpart, he continues: "I will ask you the same I asked your MAESTRO captain yesterday and I appeal to your own sense of duty, in that you may understand that I cannot ignore my orders. I shall have my orderly appoint you a suitable camp site outside the range of my guns, near water, and ensure that you are well provisioned, should you not have brought the means to be self-sustaining. There, you will await negotiations under the flag of truce. I appeal to your sense of right and wrong. Please do not force me to act in what is certain to lead to a diplomatic incidence with ramifications we cannot even begin to imagine... " Lord Maximilian Damaximus was stumbled for a moment. How dares Corrington denying access to an Eslandolan village? "Dear officer from Corrington, as you said yourself, an Eslandolan Regiment is stationed closeby. I have to admit this is new information for me, but a small calculation counts a total of 450 Eslandolan soldiers close to Malto, with a full Batallion closeby at Mehit and a Royal Fortress at Puerto Desafio. That is a little bit more than your 1 Battalion currently residing in Malto, isn't it? But I have always respected Corrington and my relations I have with your wonderfull nation, so I am not going to let things escalate. However, I do have a simple question: Why are the people of Malto seeking protection to an ally of Mardier? It is Corrington who aided Mardier defending the island and who helped Mardier funding their coffers. So why are you claiming the title of "liberator of Malto" when all you did was defending and funding the ones who burned down their own city? Next to me you may see Prince Azte Hek, crownprince of the Azclaxcans, one of the native tribes living on this island. Their capital is just a few miles further and they are massacred by Mardierian troops. They have a bigger right to hate you, Corringtonlander, than you have the right to defend the victims of the Mardierian genocide. Now I have a second question as well, a bit less simple... If you are here to help the people of Malto, and you are here without any self interest, why don't you accept the help we are providing? I got 2 companies of Engineers with me to help the people of Malto. If I look around, there still are a lot of people without a decent roof, without the minimum requirements to live peacefully. One should wonder if Corrington really is helping the people of Malto for the sake of humanity, or because Corrington hopes to expand their Empire. By not letting us in, helping the people who need it the most, Corrington shows its true face to the world..." On the left, the ROYAL MAESTRO Engineers under General Whitedragon... On the right, King Leopaldis IV of Garvey with his Royal Garvey Engineers... Lord Maximilian Damaximus spoke once again "I understand you can not give an aswer to my questions yourself, but think about my words... Thanks to your denial of access, this MAESTRO batallion will have to take a longer tour to arrive at Lakor, and since we are needed there, they should better hurry... The Royal Engineers still want to help rebuilding Malto and the hinterland" And so the troops splitted ways. The last word wasn't said about this... The Royal MAESTRO Engineers (1 company owned by MAESTRO) Thanks a lot for viewing and reading! @Bregir: those 2 questions are for you, I hope you can answer them... Oh and don't play the "Corrington is a democracy blablabla", when you have put us for an ultimatum, your own words were "hoping for a fast answer"... Anyway, I am looking forward to your anwer this evening
  18. Name: Lakor Ownership: Azclaxcan tribe, Eslandola Location: Isla de Victoria, Prio Sea Map: Geographical Features: Mostly jungle on the inside, this larger island boasts an excellent natural bay on its south side at the Island's thinnest point. The north-east coast, however is very shallow, and rife with sandbars. The south-west coasts are rocky, but host naturally occurring groves of citrus fruit. In the center of the island towers a tall volcano that occasionally shakes the Island.Rumors: The Natives of this Island fear the deeper waters to the south. While they are more than happy to sail their catamarans in the northern shallow water, they refuse to do so on the southern coast. Mayor: King Azte Nek (NPC) Trade Value: 0 Town Bank: 0 Who can own property in Lakor: Everyone Who can freebuild in Lakor: Every Native friendly man. Description : In the past centuries, the Azclaxcan expanded their influence over the island, controlling everything North of the terrible vulcano. Lakor was the cultural capital of the Azclaxcan empire and it concurred with Mehit in the east, which became a mayor meltingpot of different tribes. Since Mardier controlled Isla de la Medio, the Azclaxcans had been derived from their freedom. Many Azclaxcans were forced into labour in the Mardierian cities. What once was a wealthy tribe, was now a tribe operating under the radar. During the Mardier-Eslandola war, the Mardierian forces raided their own settlements in search of gold. Whole settlements were burned to the ground. Many natives could flee in the underground holes they made to protect their riches. When Eslandolans forces arrived at Lakor, the explorer Jan Zwartbaard discovered the natives with the help of Berelli natives. Jan Zwartbaard, a MAESTRO member, ordered the soldiers to start rebuilding Lakor into its former glory. Properties: Size for EGS purposes - For now : hamlet Residences: Factories: Artisans: Commerce: Art and Culture: Educational: Plantations: Mines: Forts: Other Buildings: Ruins of Lakor
  19. In the forest that ringed a Black Spire castle, Lord Maestro's men busied them selves constructing siege weapons. Prepared in modules back in Avalonia, soaring siege towers and devastating were slowly being pieced together (almost like Lego ). Today Lord Maestro surveyed a new contraption. Adapted from an ordinary Ballista , The Maestro's architects swore it was twice as powerful. To show their allegiance was to Avalonia they had fitted it with a Dragon head, the emblem of our their guild. A close up Looking down the barrel of the beast Entry to challenge V Category B, this was an interesting build. I have only done something like this once, and you can probably see the resemblance I hope the Dragon head looks ok to you guys, because im not completely satisfied with it. I think the landscape turned out good though, that red stuff is meant to be moss/grass. Should have Cat D up soon, C&C needed and hope you enjoy
  20. Last month, Mardier vessels blockaded the ports of Elysabethtown, Trador and Fuerto Unido. Lord Maximilian Damaximus and with him, Eslandola, had to answer fast. He bought the rights of the Siren's Song, captured by Quinnsville, repainted her and quickly she quild sail to Isla de la Victoria. With her, 20 soldiers ready to fight for Eslandola. Some Corrington people may say Eslandolan Trade Companies only have ill-trained mercenaries, but this was not the case for MAESTRO. These were not just mercanaries, they are well-disciplined, excellent trained soldiers. Puny Corringtonlanders funding the Mardierian forces... Captain of the vessel is Captain Matt Lenoir. After succesfully commanding the Purple Rain for more than a year, he has now command over the Purple Reign. The 20 soldiers will be lead by Corporal Brickwall Princeton, who was eager to take revenge after the death of his good friend Brickwall Jackson... Some soldiers: Thanks for watching! She will be licenced as a class 5LA. Those who think there are a lot of similarities between this vessel and the Purple Rain: yes there are, but if you take a closer look, you will see I almost started from scratch again :p
  21. The Maestro

    A Morning stroll

    An Avalonian ranger strolls through the forest, hunting his elusive prey. Just a small build while I wait for inspiration for category B. It was nice to experiment with some tree styles, which are mainly based of SK's. Also my first build in ages that is 360 view able Hope you enjoy.
  22. The battle had gone terribly. The Drow had ambushed them and caught them unaware. They sliced through us like a hot knife through butter. Though they had smaller numbers the Drow fought savagely. Finally, after the first initial massacre, we at last gained a foot hold. Filled with a lust for revenge, the tides turned and we overwhelmed them. We had won. Although it was not with out loss. 2 out of 5 men had perished that day and many wives made widows and children fatherless. I felt anger rise within me. He would cleanse this entire island of drow before this the coming of summer and... "M'lord?" He was interrupted by a messenger, a scruffy looking fellow holding a small letter. "yes?" I asked him. " y-y-you are Lord Maestro?" He obviously did not recognize me with out my usual beard, which I had shaved off as a sign of mourning. "I believe so, you have a message?" "M'lord, the true heir to historica has returned, m'lord and he is calling all faithful to his banner. I know you may not believe me m'lord but its true, the sent me too y-" "Enough" I cut off his babbling and turned to a passing guard "Tell my commanders to meet me in my pavilion immediately". Cleansing Eolas can wait, It was time to join the king, and fight the real enemy. Not at all really satisfied with this build. The rock work is meh, the layering is meh, and the fig posing is meh :/ The story is also meh as I kinda got carried away :P Oh well, what I lack now I will (try) make up for in my next big build. Hope you enjoy :) Also, yes I did see that arrow that fell out The previous build in the saga: A heroes farewell The Next build in the saga: A chilly welcome
  23. As Quinsville became a more well-known trade port in the region, the houses became more and more fancy. One of those examples is the Mail Office of Quinsville. Here the mails are collected to be distributed all over the world... The Office Master (Dr. W. Hoclone) wakes up very early every day to make sure the mail boys will deliver their packages on time! Anyway, here is the build: --- Hope you enjoy the building :) The licencing rights are donated to MAESTRO COR ( @Tomsche )
  24. Small Palace of Trador Excitement was taking place on the streets of Trador. It received the Town status and rumours spreaded around that today, the 30th November 616 AE, the mayor will be appointed by Lord Maximilian Damaximus. Inside the newly build Small Palace, the Town Council gathered, discussing the latest events. At the first floor of the Small Palace, Maximilian and Margot took residence for the time being... Margot: So it is official now, my father lost his power... Maximilian: Yes my dear, but he still will have a function in the Continental Council. And at least, he still is our king. Margot: Do you think there will be a point in the future where the republicans will remove the crown from our family? Maximilian: not as long as there are royalists and not at all as long as I live. When I received the charter for MAESTRO, I promised your father to make sure of the continuity of the Eslandolan Crown. Margot: I hope the Fontonajo family, who is without any doubt the richest family in these new lands, will keep the things as they are now agreed upon. Maximilian: Roman is a very wise man and he has connections in every corner of the New World, but only in the New World. Your dynasty still has a lot of support in the Old World. Margot: So I am a princess in the Old World, but not anymore in Nova Terelli? Maximilian: Even in Nova Terelli, you will be treated as a Princess by most people. There still are royalists there. As far as I know, Roman hasn't conquered the Royal Fortress of Nova Terelli where your good friend the Viceroy has his residence. Margot smiles Maximilian: As long as Stedor and Trador stand, your father will be King here. Without powers ofcourse, but still... Margot: And Elysabethtown? Maximilian: He will be treated with respect. But I would not count Lady Elysabeth as a true royalist. Luckily her husband, Lord Tomvaximus, is loyal to us... Talking about Lord Tomvaximus, I hear he has arrived downstairs. My beautifull princess, I fear I will have to leave you for some hours. When leaving the room, Maximilian quickly looked around. The armour next to the balcony was a beautifull gift he received from the befriended Viking Tribe. The Royal Princess Guards he received from his father-in-law could have been puppets as well, so fiercly they were standing for hours without moving a finger. At the Council Room, Maximilian Damaximus was waiting for a few Council members to arrive... In the meantime, a musician was playing the Orchan and a service maid was looking for beverage. A beautifull shining armour received from MAESTRO Corrington was decorating the room. A few hours later, Lord Maximilian Damaximus left the Small Palace. at the square in front of the palace, he declared Sir Yohannes Ethiximus to be mayor of Trador. Yohannes made fame in Stedor as brilliant politicus. The perfect guy to be the right hand of Maximilian at Trador. And one more romantic picture with Lord Maximilian Damaximus and Princess Margot of Eslandola and those cool Royal Princess Guards. ------ Thanks for watching! C&C welcome! Made for Cat 3 of the Mini Challenge (Eslandola). Will be licenced as medium residence
  25. The Golden Apple Chase, Part I : The Ténotclaxcans, Chapter 01 : The Doctor's mission Previously : Felipe de la Manzana is an Eslandian citizen who drove crazy exploring the deep jungle of Nellisa island. This adventure lead him to thought that Apple orchards could be less dangerous than the jungle. He brought his first mate and friend, Basil, to this insane idea and together, they developed orchards and apple industry inside the MAESTRO young trade company. By chance, they encountered a castaway in a Nellisa beach while exploring. The man, named Juan de Hespérida, told them he stole a first half of a map showing the location of a Mythic Golden Apple, which can bring knowledge if eaten. Felipe tryed to follow the map but the coordinates are not clear and it is said that the island where the apple grows is never at the same place on the sea. During such a research expedition,his first vessel, The Appleseed, sunk to the ocean and Felipe was the only one to survive, Juan was lost at sea. Basil was safe, because he did not took part at this trip. He had too much to do with the Natives they encountered in the new island of Berelli : The Ténotclaxcans ! Those natives told the 2 adventurers that they knew some strange stories about apples and about monkeys and turtles too. To make clear of this mix of legend and frighting stories, Felipe asked the help of a Corrington scientist, The Doctor Gellibrand. Now, after being disturbed by some political changes in Eslandola, the 2 men are ready to follow their Quest. Felipe managed to keep safe a copy of Juan de Hespérida map and the doctor settle a crew to live with the Ténotclaxcans. Everything is ready to begin the Golden Apple Chase ! So, I am back to my story full of apples ! I made this little introduction to remind my old builds and to keep it as an intro to the real chase. The quest is really begining here ! The Doctor was quite happy this morning. His preparations have been done and one of his companions, miss Donna was already inside the camp they made along the Ténotclaxcan village. So, the troop he selected was in march and passed through the market of elisabethtown. Pinya lead the march through the busy activity of the morning. The covered market was already full of food supplies and the merchants where already at work ! Then they passed along the houses along the road : some nice commercial slot have been made for some rich Eslandolans. Here there where a cloth seller : And there, a free fortune teller : The Doctor remind the mission to Clara (Who tryed to avoid the pigs passing near her horse) : - Be clear with our mission my dear. We are mainly observer here, we don't have to interfere with the Ténotclaxcans legends ! We must be attentive to their stories and after that we must try to scientifically rely them to something real. We could find the real position of the island Felipe is looking for. It is our top priority ! - Yes, Doctor, I know. I Know this is the first rule of your ethic moral : not to interfere with the natives. You already told me that. And they got out of the buzzing city to join their companion into the jungle of Berelli. This MOC is the Main Market Place of Elisabethtown and was a part of my participation at the Brickmania event in Antwerp. I am letting MAESTRO using this build to be part of the Royal Commerce license they want to buy. it's a 64*64 studs modular build in 4 parts. Thank you for reading ! Here are more pictures of the build istself :
