  1. Name: Mesabi Landing Ownership: Wayfarer Trading Company , via the Crown of Corrington Location: Argentia, East Prio Sea Map: Mayor: Count Mesabi . Trade Value: see accounts spreedsheet Town Bank: see accounts spreedsheet Who can own property in Mesabi Landing: Anyone Who can freebuild in Mesabi Landing: Anyone Description: Pax Corlandia was a dangerous incident for all sides involved. With the Corrish occupation of Nova Malto, battle lines were drawn, and names were made. One of these names was Captain Mesabi, who was annointed Count for his bravery (or lunacy?) during the incident. After the whole Nova Malto incident, the Corrington Colonial Council decided to do something to about the troublesome - now Count - Mesabi. The solution was simple: send him to a faraway island. Isle 14, AKA Keep-Yer-Boots-On, AKA Argentia, was decidedly the right place. Littered with waste from passing ships, cacti, crabs with hats, and mysterious plants, Argentia is perhaps the most depressing of the Islands of the Prio Sea - and a perfect place to keep Mesabi from causing more trouble. Undeterred, Count Mesabi established a settlement on the barren island, naming it after himself. Newly ennobled, he seeks to make the settlement the greatest in the Prio seas, at all costs. The settlement has grown quickly, becoming a haven for exiles, outlaws, and traders from all known (and sometimes unknown) nations. The WTC unofficially controls the town, despite the protests of the Crown. However, the settlement remains a rough place, and at the same time an eldorado for those looking for adventures, glory - and profits.

  2. The words had all but been long forgotten. The phase hadn't been uttered since 443 when the great plague swept the nation's. Now in 619 we are hear the phrase again being shouted through the streets the sickening phrase. "BRING OUT YOUR DEAD!" The body collector's cart rolls through a neighborhood in Mesabi Landing today. The earthquake was cold and emotionless harshness. It cared not for age or sex or class. As the building crumbled sending rubble crashing down it claimed many lives. Now as the Landings residents try to restore their town they will ever more be haunted by the phrase bring out your dead. OoC so the earthquake inspired a bit of Monty Python to ring through my head and this build resulted. Mesabi landing (if approved) is allowed to use it towards its stud total just let me know how / when to licence.
  3. Location: Mesabi Landing Type: Repairs Studcount: 48x48 (2,304) Repairs continued in Mesabi Landing every day. Today, a street was being cobbled, whilce cleanup on the shoreline was done. Joseph Zumbro supervised the work from in front of a small pub. The pub, of course, had been one of the first buildings repaired in Mesabi Landing. Around back, the mess of the shoreline was slowly being dealt with. The newly cobbled road would help things, was the thought. But that didn't stop the WTC from trying to make some work of it before the road was finished. Next to the Bar was a stately house that had been hit hard, and been half washed out. But there was still plenty of work to be done... FIN Thanks for viewing another repair build. Originally, I was just going to have rails next to the road, but then I realized that I wouldn't have really built anything. So, I replaced where the rails were going to be with some buildings. I hope the grey building isn't to simplistic. I used grey 2x4 tiles to try and make it look like it had mason work done. I looked at several techniques for making stone buildings look interesting, but I wasn't quite happy with any of them, as they were mostly for medieval buildings. The White building uses the same siding technique as my last build, which I think works well, and the roof is based of of a build I saw a while back in GOH. The tsunami washout was inspired a bit from my time in Duluth, on Lake Superior. The lake washed out canal park almost every november or so. Anyways, C&C appreciated. Let me know any improvements I can do
  4. Location: Mesabi Landing Type: Large Artisan It was evening in Mesabi Landing. Shadows stretched across the sand as Princess Isabella, Countess Agnes Mesabi, and Mordo walked to a pub. Waterfront in Mesabi Landing by North White, on Flickr "The Count has returned to known territory, and he has an... interesting... proposal." Said Mordo, not revealing his thoughts on the matter. "Yes, but this won't change anything with our plans for Gondova, will it?" asked Isabella with concern. Waterfront in Mesabi Landing by North White, on Flickr "No, and we're agreeing to his proposal. We just need the Queen to agree. If that's even possible..." Said Agnes. "We leave for Gonda tomorrow. We take the Red Queen, The Icarus Returning, the Destroying Angel, and as many troops as we can raise." Waterfront in Mesabi Landing by North White, on Flickr The three entered the pub. The pool players took one look at who had walked in, and offered their sticks to Agnes and the Princess. Waterfront in Mesabi Landing by North White, on Flickr "Tomorrow, Namere will begin a new chapter. but tonight? We get wasted!" Said Agnes. "Didn't you say that yesterday?" asked Mordo Continuing the story is @Drunknok... Later on the same day, Princess Isabella had already left, Agnes Mesabi was still playing billard, with a WTC crowd gathered around the table. And while Agnes enjoyed herself, Mordo had some other business to do right behind the pub. Agnes playing... ... Mordo leaving through the back door. . "Listen you two, this must not fall back on me. You get paid well, and you keep your mouths shut - if you know what is good for you. Take care of that thing with the guy in the place... make it look like an accident. You know... the usual." "Aye, Mr. M.!" Later on, the crowd left one by one, Agnes Mesabi was still playing, getting more drunk by the minute, slowly losing patience with the balls: . In the end, the game was still not finished, but the evening ended well for Lady Mesabi, snoring loudly: FIN Thanks for viewing my build. C&C appreciated. Also Mesabi Landing has elevated Rails now.
  5. Location: Mesabi Landing Type: Small Commercial Adventure Purpose: To hunt down the Red Rascal Pirates of zone 35. Troops: 10 WTC Marines- Red Squad Coffers: 10 Dbs Character List "You gentlemen are some of the WTC's finest. The Smartest Captain. The most Decorated Marines. And Tony, who's just a cool dude." Said Agnes. Mesabi Landing AMCRA by North White, on Flickr "Thank you Madam." Said Tony with one of his famous grins. "Now unfortunately, We have a problem. There are pirates in the area. They attacked our ships a few months ago. And now they're based somewhere in the vicinity. Hiding..." Mesabi Landing AMCRA by North White, on Flickr "They're the Red Rascals. Former Corrington soldiers who turned to villainy. Kinda like us actually. Anyways they're lead by Big Hat Barry. They have a basecamp on one of the islands in zone 35. Here's a convenient list! Isle 14: Argentia (I think we would have noticed if they were on our own island!) Isle 15: Cacadia Isle 16: Uncharted... Isle 17: Uncharted... Isle 18: Celestia Isle 19: Garma's Key Isle 20: Uncharted... Isle 21: Uncharted... Isle 22: Uncharted... Isle 23: Ile d'Ore (Let's hope they ain't here. I don't want to deal with Oleon as well) "So, while we have our Gunboats on patrol, you fine gentlemen will search each island by row boat, to try to locate the camp, and deal with it. That clear?" Mesabi Landing AMCRA by North White, on Flickr "Yes Ma'm!" They said in unison. FIN C&C appreciated. This will be licensed as a commercial by Mesabi Landing, and I plan to use it as Agnes's office for the future. Yes, it's a modified version of the Dr. Strange Set. So, it probably looks better than most of my regular builds.
  6. The Brick Seas are a rough place, that much is for certain. The Wayfarer Trading Company did its best to make them a safer space. But despite their succes in hunting down pirates, potential dangers were still everywhere. A war between Prio and the Sea Rats had just been averted, but oerall tensions were still high. Mesabi Landing had to stay safe. So it was decided to invest in a series of large fortifications, with the first one guarding the harbour. Three others would follow, being set up around the settlement, protecting it in all directions, shielding it from any attack. This first fortress was named West Shield: Observation Point Main Battery Minor Battery Delta Storage Level Mobile Defense ======================================================================= A large fortress for Mesabi Landing, licensed by the WTC. Build sizes are as follows: Observation Point: 32x32 Main Battery: 32x32 Minor Battery Delta: 16x32 Storage Level: 32x32 Mobile Defense: 16x32 It all adds up to 64x64, i.e. the footprint of a large fort. Each build is supposed to be one section of the fort, but not in the way that they would be combined into one single structure. Imagine that each of these is exemplary for similr structures in West Shield, and that there are parts of the fort you do not get to see. As always, C&C are appreciated!
  7. Location: Mesabi Landing Type: Royal Factory A wagon rumbled along the tracks towards the largest building in Mesabi Landing, the royal shipyard. The royal shipyard by North White, on Flickr The structure was massive, and was built into the harbour, for immediate ship launch. The royal shipyard by North White, on Flickr The designers, architects, and engineers carefully studied the designs, before relaying the information to the grunts for execution. The royal shipyard by North White, on Flickr Today, 2 ships were under construction, the WTC Robin and the WTC Blue Moon. The royal shipyard by North White, on Flickr Agnes and Mordo walked towards the factory, their usual custom for when a new factory was operational. The royal shipyard by North White, on Flickr Agnes walked to the table with a manifest. "We need you to double your output. We need more money to fund this giant factory." The royal shipyard by North White, on Flickr Inside, wood was cut, and unloaded, all from other islands that actually had trees. The royal shipyard by North White, on Flickr A crane lifted materials from the rail cars to the staging ground. The royal shipyard by North White, on Flickr The ships were almost completed, and the launch was planned later that day. The royal shipyard by North White, on Flickr Finally, a ship was ready. 2 horses got it moving down the rails to the sea. The royal shipyard by North White, on Flickr Slowly, it moved down the rails. The royal shipyard by North White, on Flickr It slid down the rails into the water. The royal shipyard by North White, on Flickr And with that, the WTC had another ship. The royal shipyard by North White, on Flickr FIN Thanks for viewing this massive build I did. The hard part wasn't building it, but photographing it in my tiny room was damn near impossible. I'd like to license this as a royal factory for the WTC. As this requires a charter, I hereby apply for it. I hope that this build meets the requirements for a royal build. The footprint is 96x96, which is lower than the 100x100 requirement, but I feel this is a little arbitrary, and hope leadership would agree. If you would like it to be 100x100, I can add a 32x32 section to the factory. As for the quality, I have put my best foot forward with the pieces I have, and I hope leadership would allow for this to be considered of royal quality. If it is not, well, I'll just license 3 large factories this month. C&C appreciated, as usual.
  8. Location: Mesabi Landing Type: Prospecting Coal continued to be found in Mesabi Landing in bucketfuls. But today, A WTC explosive experts prepared another attempt to find the minerals of Argentia. More prospecting by North White, on Flickr "This is not at all safe." Said a Corrish Soldier "Relax, what's the worst that could happen!" said the Explosives expert More prospecting by North White, on Flickr A massive pile of explosives sat next to a rock More prospecting by North White, on Flickr The Corrish soldier ran, saying nothing. The Explosive expert lit the fuse, and ran. KABOOOOOOOOM More prospecting by North White, on Flickr Just another day in Mesabi Landing FIN Here's to not getting coal (or stone)
  9. Location: Mesabi Landing Type: Large Artisan It was another busy day in Mesabi Landing, the largest Corrish settlement, and the fourth largest on the Brick Seas. Hydrological Harvesting part II by North White, on Flickr The Railway intersected a busy road, where stagecoatches and wagons ferried goods and services across the massive settlement. Hydrological Harvesting part II by North White, on Flickr The Aqueduct, finally operational, moved precious water from the lake to the north to a system of pipes under the city. Hydrological Harvesting part II by North White, on Flickr As the settlement had grown, styles had changed, and plastering houses had become all the rage. Hydrological Harvesting part II by North White, on Flickr Meanwhile, in the "Where are my pants?" Laundromat, an operator sat while his assistant scrubbed clothes. Hydrological Harvesting part II by North White, on Flickr Hydrological Harvesting part II by North White, on Flickr Elsewhere, a worker took a siesta in a small residence. Hydrological Harvesting part II by North White, on Flickr Yes, Mesabi Landing was the best Corrish settlement. FIN Thanks for viewing my build. I chose to license this as an artisan, as there really isn't a category for "aqueducts." I really had fun with this build, and it was nice to show all the vehicles on a street, even though half of them are from London Escape. C&C appreciated
  10. Flying Fish Fountain ML fountain by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr On a peaceful path not far from a outdoor sausage smoker, is a serene fountain called the Flying Fish Fountain. No one is quite sure how it got that name, because of course, fish don't fly... at least not unless someone is throwing them. Then they can fly quite far... Here a WTC Marine is enjoying a perfectly cooked sausage while taking a relaxing walk next the fountain. This is my second build for @Drunknok's April WTCM rewards. C&C are welcome and appreciated and thanks for looking! It will be licensed as a small arts & culture.
  11. Outdoor Sausage Smoker ML Food Stand by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Next to a small stretch of road that is frequented by WTC Marines, a wise old cook has set up a sausage smoker! Fueled by coal that is from the local Mesabi Landing coal mine, the fire never stops and as fast as the sausages are being made, people keep coming to buy them! ML Food Stand 2 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr A simple process is used, someone shovels in coal as the cook does his thing on the grill and rakes in the money! This is 1 of 2 builds for @Drunknok's April WTCM rewards. I thought it would be a fitting build for Mesabi Landing. C&C are welcome and appreciated and thanks for looking! It will be licensed as a small commerce.
  12. Location: Mesabi Landing Type: Medium Artisan The people of Mesabi Landing, (Melanders?) were an industrious people. Fishy smell by North White, on Flickr Today, a fishing crew rowed it's way around the bay, nets in hand. Fishy smell by North White, on Flickr After catching an absurd amount of fish an oysters (but not crabs), they rowed their way back to headquarters. Fishy smell by North White, on Flickr There, they disembarked, hauling in their fresh catch. Fishy smell by North White, on Flickr Everything was brought inside the off shore building, (because of the smell of Fish) for processing Fishy smell by North White, on Flickr There, the fish were to be processed and put in barrels from the barrel factory to be used for a variety of purposes. Fishy smell by North White, on Flickr FIN Thanks for viewing my build, I hope you like this one, I had fun building it. I also tried to capture the essence of Mesabi Landing with the scenery. C&C appreciated!

    Rotating Meat

    With the cheap meat available around Mesabi Landing, it was fairly obvious that something had to be done with that. Realising that setting up just a grill wouldn't be too interesting - it had been done many times before - James Hred decided it would be best to do something nobody had done before in this city - why not cook the meat while it was rotating? This would cause an issue - all the grease would drop into the fire. To prevent that, he decided to set up the rotating part vertically. But wait, there is no vertical fire that would evenly heat the meat - the meat now has to be heated by metal rods that were heated to glowing red in an oven nearby. A pretty involved procedure, just to make some fancy cooked meat that can be cut off the roll... Here you can see a bit more of the procedure - a young boy is turning a winch, which is in turn turing a belt which rotates the meat. Another assistant picks up the glowing red metal rods and replaces the ones that have cooled down. James Hred cuts off the good meat and sells it to locals. Now, James has run into an issue - he isn't very creative at naming things. He needs help naming this new technology and hopes it can be simplified in the future - having 3 people work for this seems quite ineffective. If someone were to develop a better solution he is willing to offer a 150 DB reward if it were set up in an Eslandolan Settlement. Licensed as a small Artisan in Mesabi Landing

  17. The Reckoning: Chapter 1, A Call to Arms Location: Mesabi Landing Type: Medium Educational A wagon rattled along the new tracks that lead through Mesabi Landing. Lead by a Royal Engineer, a wagon carried coal over to the factories on the other side of town.

The Reckoning Chapter 1 by North White, on Flickr "Thank you gentlemen, for delivering this personally. I must ask you to leave now however. My work requires me." Said Dr. Vesper emotionlessly He motioned them to the door, and they exited. He reread the latter again to be sure.

The Reckoning Chapter 1 by North White, on Flickr "A reckoning cannot be postponed indefinitely..." he repeated. FIN Thank you for viewing my build! This marks the beginning of a new story I would like to tell. If @Bregir doesn't stop me. I tried to use some new techniques in this build, especially with the windows. I also finally got some slopes to use. Thank you to @Lord Buckethead for his railroad idea. Not only is it a great idea, it will be featured in my builds, as it gives me an excuse to use my rail pieces. Additionally, this build finally makes Mesabi Landing a City. Corrington is up to 4 now! Final note: Dr. Vesper is NOT to be associated with the WTC. He is not, and will not be a member of the WTC. Do not take out any of his IC actions against my trading company! C&C appreciated!
  18. Location: Mesabi Landing Type: Medium Educational Mesabi Landing was booming, and Mordo had much to do. Today he walked to a new Business, the Karst Geographers. Karst geographical by North White, on Flickr He entered the building to find one of the Geographers sitting at a desk, penning a letter. Karst geographical by North White, on Flickr "Mr. Mordo! We have the work you've commissioned! Come see!" Said the Geographer "Excellent, Agnes will be most pleased we can gaze upon our fine city." Said Mordo.

Any mayor or civil servant can request a map of their settlement for the price of 100 Dbs! Corlanders served without charge! Simply PM Me @Mesabi Thanks for viewing my newest build. I really tried to do something different with the roof this time, and also tried to detail the outside. environment. I'm not sure if this can be counted as an educational, I felt maps were knowledgey, but if leadership disagrees, let me know. I won't license this for a few days. I didn't put much story, as this is mostly to display my new map of Mesabi Landing, but I will get back into regular silliness soon. C&C appreciated!
  19. Location: Mesabi Landing Type: Medium Commercial "I can't believe he's late again." Said Pete Zanzibar It's 12:00, and he's still not here. "You haven't gotten to know him." Said Sally. WTC sales division by North White, on Flickr Joseph Zumbro strolled leisurely down the path to the Sales Division Building No. 3. WTC sales division by North White, on Flickr He opened the door and walked in. WTC sales division by North White, on Flickr "You're late again Mr. Zumbro!" Said Karren, the secretary, her face a mess of makeup, as usual. "Well, I had to get over this hangover!" He said with a smirk. "Also it's not like we're doing anything important today!" "Mr. Zumbro, we have a mission briefing!" She said in a concerned voice. "Exactly, nothing important!" He left her desk and walked over to Pete. WTC sales division by North White, on Flickr "Mr. Zumbro, I can't believe you're late again. Do you know how unprof-" Mr. Zumbro cut Pete off. WTC sales division by North White, on Flickr "You know who my aunt is. Besides, do you really care enough to do something about it? I mean it's not like you can control me. We learned that lesson." Said Mr. Zumbro chidely. Zumbro walked over to the next desk "Ugh, you're late again," Said Bradley Stevens, the team accountant. "Just because the Countess is your aunt..." WTC sales division by North White, on Flickr Zumbro picked up Bradley's Coffee and drank it. "Ugh, why isn't this a Sea Rat Coffee? Every Coffee needs liquor!" "Hey! And not only is that racist to Sea Rats- Bradley was cut off "Who are jerks." Said Zumbro "I..." "Have no good response because you're not as awesome as me?" Sally Whistled loudly. "Everyone! We have a briefing to do!" WTC sales division by North White, on Flickr The group gathered around the table. Pete Spoke up. "So, Trador. A Large Eslandolan town just a zone outside our own. Dominated by MAESTRO." "Wait, what does MAESTRO stand for again? Misfits Acquiring Esoteric Stuff, Trading, at Random Outposts?" Asked Zumbro "No, it's Mypa-Stedor... Something Something.. I don't know." Said Pete. "So what about them?" Asked Sally "Well, there are goods they sell that we don't. And goods we sell that they don't." Added Pete "Like anything involving horses?" Asked Zumbro, "Cause we killed a looooot of Horses last month." "Basically. Anyways, we need to establish an office there. And the last time we were there...." WTC sales division by North White, on Flickr "Yeah Yeah. We were pretty drunk after that soccer match. We got some neat stuff out of that warehouse though." Said Sally. "Yeah... And also probably ruined relations with them. So, do what you can." Said Pete angrily. "To destroy their water supply and orchards?" Asked Zumbro "No! To set up a company house, and to start doing business with them. You idiot." Said Pete. "So get a ship and get on it!" "Are you sure?..." "Yes!" FIN Thanks for viewing the character introduction for Joseph Zumbro. I'm trying to work on adding more characters so I'm not limited to just Agnes and the Count. C&C appreciated everyone.
  20. Dramatis Personae Part One It was just before dawn and the settlement was calm. Jessica Campell stood on the front step of the inn and surveyed what she could see of the settlement. In the pre-dawn light the settlement appeared calm. The smell of stale alcohol mingled in the air with what Jessica swore smelled like roast horse. In her pocket was her report for Governor Allcock. Carefully transcribed into a cipher known only to her and the governor, she went through the contents in her head. Mesabi Landing, 6 December 617AE As you instructed I arrived in the settlement of Mesabi Landing a month ago and it is indeed as bad as you feared. Soon after arriving I was able to find work as a bar keep in a small inn run by one of the few honest men I have met in this wretched place. Samuel Morris financed the 'Twin Palms' inn with one of your grants, with the hope that Mesabi Landing's reputation of heavy drinking would turn a neat profit. And indeed it would, were it not for the fact that the settlement is virtually lawless, and the WTC troops here come and take what they want, without the inconvenience of actually paying for anything. Indeed the entire settlement is characterised by drunken behaviour, throughout both day and night. Count Mesabi, the mayor, is absent - rumour has it that he is leading an expedition to the far south of Halos, his exit from the settlement hastened by rumours of debtors chasing him. His wife Agnes was assuming his duties, although it is said the majority of the actual management was done by a WTC officer named Pete Zanzibar, although both have apparently left for Jameston around the same time I arrived. So no one is appears in charge and the WTC troops have filled the void, their remaining officers either encouraging their behaviour or too weak to prevent it. The WTC troops are almost always drunk, and as mentioned make life impossible for honest citizens by their thievery and extortion. Rumours are that criminals of all kinds, including pirates, are free to use the settlement as long as the WTC is paid off and the WTC troops receive their cut. You may well at this point ask about the Corlander garrison under Major Mason. I have managed to befriend one of his junior officers, an officer by the name of Lieutenant Billsby. A young and impressionable officer, he paints a picture of a garrison with extremely low morale, frustrated by their apparent powerlessness to act. Major Mason has confined his men to the fort and spends most of his time muttering about blowing the settlement to Hades and beyond. Lieutenant Billsby is allowed out to buy supplies from the WTC, who of course charge exorbitant rates. I will await your instructions, although I must advise you that I am unable to intervene on my own. To restore Corlander order you will need to send a senior officer to deal with Major Mason, and I would go as far to recommend you back him with regular troops to handle the WTC. J ------------------------------------------------------- A quick build for Mesabi Landing - Governor Allcock has been worried about rumours from the settlement for sometime. I've tried to use the style Mesabi uses in most of his builds in the settlement but merged with my own. It's only a fa├žade with no interior though! Part Two will be added to this thread soon, the build is just about finished and only the story needs writing.
  21. Location: Mesabi Landing Type: Coal Mine With the discovery of coal, and people dragging their bratty kids to the settlement, Mesabi Landing had two problems. Fortunately they were able to combine the two problems. Mesabi Landing daycare and coal mine 1 by North White, on Flickr With Corrish innovation, childcare in the Landing was guaranteed at the local Daycare/Coal mine Mesabi Landing daycare and coal mine 1 by North White, on Flickr Children happily played games of "Haul up the coal" and "mine the coal" Mesabi Landing daycare and coal mine 1 by North White, on Flickr And coal was quickly produced for the settlement. FIN Thanks for viewing this build I meant to post like 3 weeks ago. I should have taken better pictures, but I took these at my house, and I'm at my dorm right now. C&C appreciated. And if you think this is dark, you should have seen the original version of this build...
  22. Location: Mesabi Landing Type: Medium Factory As acting Mayor of Mesabi Landing, Karl Mordo had to oversee the opening of new factories. Not that he wanted to be mayor. In fact the position had started to take over his personal life as well. Mesabi Landing Foundry 2 by North White, on Flickr This was the second Cannon Factory on Argentia, adding to the Island's destructive power. But what Karl really wanted was a nice nap. He grumbled as they let him in. Mesabi Landing Foundry 2 by North White, on Flickr The WTC foreman spoke. "Much like our other factory, we melt things down into a mold on a rail system. Mesabi Landing Foundry 2 by North White, on Flickr "Iron Ingots, old swords, and other useless things are all turned into cannons here." Mesabi Landing Foundry 2 by North White, on Flickr Molten Iron flowed into the mould with a hiss. Mesabi Landing Foundry 2 by North White, on Flickr Th mold was wheeled out of the factory to cool in the cooler air outside. Mesabi Landing Foundry 2 by North White, on Flickr And for the next four hours, Karl Mordo was forced to make awkward small talk with the WTC's most boring Foreman. Because he needed to verify that the same iron poured into the cannon mould would become the cannons as mandated by Corrish Law. Mesabi Landing Foundry 2 by North White, on Flickr Finally the mould was cracked open, revealing four small deck guns. "We pride ourselves on being able to recycle the mould here." The foreman said happily. Karl Mordo sighed. It was hot out. Mesabi Landing Foundry 2 by North White, on Flickr Finally the barrels were drilled out to Corrish standards, making another set of working cannons. Mesabi Landing Foundry 2 by North White, on Flickr "We'll have a third soon." Said the foreman. But Karl Mordo had already walked off... FIN Thanks for viewing my build! Sorry for the hiatus. Although my hiatus seems to be how much time it usually takes the rest of you to build something. C&C appreciated!
  23. Location: Mesabi Landing Type: Small Residence Challenge: Merrynight Mystery Minichallenge It was another day in Mesabi Landing, and Agnes was settling back into the routine of the Horse meat lunches, alcoholism, and explosives misuse. Merrynight by North White, on Flickr She continued work on a letter, until her two children ran in. Merrynight by North White, on Flickr "Merry Merrynight Mommy!" Said her daughter, Morissa. "Morissa Honey, Mommy is trying to write a letter to get some people fired." "But it's Merrynight Mom" Said her son, Kevin, "Tell us a Merrynight Story!" Merrynight by North White, on Flickr "Fiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiine. Once upon a time, I was a young girl in Belson. It was the Merrynight Ball and your grandmother was being a nag." Merrynight by North White, on Flickr "Agnes Honey, you should get back to the ball. If you want to meet a man, you need to put yourself out there. It's not like you have the looks, charm, or cooking skills to meet a man normally." Said Lady Zumbro. "Mother, I will throw you over this balcony, and tell Father you were drinking again." Said Agnes "I'm just saying I want grandkids," Said Lady Zumbro. "Mother, don't tempt me. You know I don't bluff." "I'll be inside spiking the punch for you." Lady Zumbro walked off. Merrynight by North White, on Flickr "So, I stood out there in the freezing cold, while my mother was arrested for tampering with a punch bowl." "Anyways, your deadbeat father walked up." Merrynight by North White, on Flickr "Hey, you want some liquor?" Said Captain Mesabi Merrynight by North White, on Flickr "Shouldn't you be guarding the queen?" I asked "Nah, I'm on balcony duty because 'ceremonial cannons are not meant to be used against potential assassins.'" "Wait what?" I asked, but he said nothing and handed me some Vodka Merrynight by North White, on Flickr "And that's how I met your father." Agnes Finished "That was a lame story Mommy!" Said Kevin "Yeah, you really should of used more descriptive language, or used some scene transitions." Said Morissa Merrynight by North White, on Flickr "Where the $#@% did your Nanny go?" Asked Agnes FIN Thanks for viewing my entry in @Drunknok's merrynight challenge! I thought I'd use this opportunity to flesh out the background of my characters some more. This will be licensed as a small residence by Mesabi Landing. C&C appreciated! And seriously, more people need to enter the challenge! I don't want to win this by default!
  24. [Disclaimer: Due to the size of this builds layout and the restrictions of my lightbox I could only do a few limited shots of the whole assembly. Some subassemblies had to be shot on their own. As usual: please excuse my poor photography skills.] It was another sunny day in Mesabi Landing, and the harbour was as busy as always: Some WTC Marines enjoyed a fistfight between two sailors... ... while Gonzo "Drunknok" Thompson just enjoyed a moment of rest and peace (and a bottle of rum): Some had todays work already done... ... and others still had a lot to do: The captain of the "Cranky Parrot" was discussing something with Joe... ... while another sailor was heading straight for the "Blue Dragon" right down the road: === WTC Warehouse One of the WTC Operators is taking stock: "Four Corrington suits, minor blood stains, check. Two pompous Corrie hats, check. Three flags, check. You never know when any of these might come in handy..." " ... one big barrel of beer, check. Two sacks of potatoes, check. One rat guarding the warehouse, check. Six bottles of rum, che... waitaminute! Only five bottles? Oh well, I guess Drunknok needed some inspiration for his newspaper. Fine, five bottles it is then." Harbour Tax Office When Mesabi Landig was founded, one of the first things the Crown set up was an office for the collection of harbour taxes. Little did they know how the WTC would handle things! No doubloons were ever collected here, and over time the building fell into disrepair. The Corrington red is still flying though - order must be upheld! Now the ruins are home to Steven, one of the local crabs. He is the brother of Barney, the bouncer at the "Blue Dragon". WTC Harbour Office . Guarded by two trustworthy (?) WTC Infantry... ... in this building all captains have to register their ships when coming to Mesabi Landing. One of them is doing so right now, while two more are waiting: "Welcome to Mesabi Landing. Your hat looks odd, what is it with the skull and bones?" "Arr, good lady, 'tis my families coat of arms. You see, we are honest to the bone, hence the skull and bones." "I see. For a moment I feared you were a pirate. Please note that piracy will not be tolerated here." "Of course!" "So, what are you trading with?" "Well, artefacts. Mainly made of gold, like these coins." "I see, good. Now we only need your name, and you can continue with your trades." "Umm, I think you want another of our artefacs for further examination." "I see. Mr. Smith, welcome to Mesabi Landing!" ============================================================================================================ Well, that was quite some work. Leaving out the plate with the office of the "WTC Monthly" on it, this build has a footprint of 3072 studs, and will be licensed as a large commercial property for Mesabi Landing. Building the whole thing took me about a month. It is of course modular, while I did not build any structures to support the not-water-plates (being 5 bricks above ground). The harbour sections can easily be rearranged, there are connector holes on the edges for stability. @Ayrlego @Mesabi: Please let me know if you want something to be depicted in any of these builds, for a collab or whatever you want. If not, I will take most of it apart soon. C&C are appreciated.
  25. "Nok, nok, nok..." Gonzo "Drunknok" Thompson walked around in the office of the "WTC Monthly", his peg leg making the familiar sound that gave him the second part of his nickname. The half-full bottle of rum on the table had something to do with the first part. Gonzo was busy getting the latest issue printed. He had the handwritten text in front of him, as well as most of it on the printing plate already. The process of setting up the printing plate took a lot of time, since the text had to be set letter after letter, word after word, out of little blocks of metal each with a negative cut-out of one letter or syllable. A few lines of text were still missing, and he looked for the right letters - luckily they were right next to him in a well sorted shelf. The most common letters had more blocks available in boxes at the top, the least used only had small boxes at the bottom. The finished printing plate was then coated with black ink: It was then put (upside down of course) into the printing press... ... moved over the clean paper and finally mechanically pressed onto the paper: With the printing plate done once, it was now possible to repeat the printing process as often as wanted - simply return the plate, add new ink and fresh paper, press, then start again. The "WTC Monthly" will find its way to every minifig in the Brick Seas - that deserves some more rum. Cheers! =============================================================================================================== A small artisan for Mesabi Landing. More pictures in the spoiler tag: I am not happy with how the building looks from the outside. Usually I like reduced colour palettes, but in this case the result looks like one of those 80s Lego City houses. The inside turned out okay, with a few compromises in terms of realism due to the scale. Obviously the roof is removable, but so is the back wall for even easier access:
