  1. Location: Charlatan Bay Type: Medium Factory The WTC had not been well received in Charlatan Bay. The Sight of the massive WTC Judgement had been regarded with disdain. But the WTC had a mission, to establish factories in the Colony. The First had been built by detonating a bunch of explosives in a small cave to enlarge it. There, the WTC worked on a new product. But all was not well. A drunken captain walked up the causeway to the factory, looking for blood. Pants factory by North White, on Flickr "Yah bloody bastards think you can force yer way into Charlatan after what Tyrell did? Well I think not." Said the angry, drunken captain. "Sir, please, we're not looking for trouble." Said the WTC Elite Guard. "Well Mr. Pistol Says you need to go away! Ain't that right Mr. Pistol?" Said the Captain "WTC needs to die!" Said the Captain in a falsetto Pants factory by North White, on Flickr The Elite Sighed. The Captain Cocked his gun. Pants factory by North White, on Flickr It took a quick slash of the blade to knock him back... Pants factory by North White, on Flickr Pants factory by North White, on Flickr Pants factory by North White, on Flickr "Now GET!" Yelled the Elite Pants factory by North White, on Flickr The Sea Rats dropped their remaining weapons and fled in a panic. Pants factory by North White, on Flickr Inside, work continued on the pants. Pants factory by North White, on Flickr Cloth was cut, and sewn into pants. They were piled, and then shipped. Far simpler than most factories. Pants factory by North White, on Flickr And Extra explosives were kept on hand in case of "emergency..." FIN Thanks for viewing my first reparation factory for Charlatan Bay. I read up on the colony, and really liked the idea of the tall cliffs feature of the island. So, I decided to build a cliffside factory, which probably hasn't been done recently. @Kwatchi said I couldn't have my Elites killing anyone (Even in self defense apparently ) So I hope this is a fair compromise. Technically, This is a part of lowtown, though I'd say it's about halfway up the cliff. Storywise I'm happy with it, though I don't think this will make my top 10. C&C appreciated! More pictures.
  2. Location: Jameston, Celestia Type: Medium Commercial Jameston Basecamp by North White, on Flickr Agnes awoke with a start at a table full of papers. Jameston Basecamp by North White, on Flickr "What the? How the $#@$# did I get here?" She asked angrily "Good morning!" Said Pete Zanzibar "I'm glad to see you've come too." "You didn't answer the question, you pinstriped idiot." Agnes muttered. "Well.... after you left the gunpowder factory, you walked into a pineapple tree. You then challenged it to a duel, and blew it up with TNT." Said Pete "And?" "Well, then you tried to rob a general store with a stick." "And?" "And we realized it would just be easier to buy out the store, and set up headquarters there, and let you think you robbed the place." "Oh." Jameston Basecamp by North White, on Flickr "So, anyways, the elites are all here, and we're going to go find that fabled orchard." Said Pete "Wait, who's running things in Mesabi Landing?" Asked Agnes Jameston Basecamp by North White, on Flickr Pete stopped smiling. "Him." He said quietly. "Oh." Said Agnes. "Well then, let's get this show on the road." Jameston Basecamp by North White, on Flickr FIN Thanks for viewing my entry into Challenge 6! As usual, I'm the first to post . I really tried to imitate @Ayrlego's style with this build. I probably failed, but I'm happy with the amount of texture I put into the build. C&C appreciated! More pictures
  3. Participants: Mesabi Vessels: WTC Aurora; WTC Copperhead Coffers: 10 Dbs Troops: 10 WTC Marines, 20 WTC Volunteers Purpose: To boldly go where no Corlander has gone before, the south Characters: Madin disappeared into the Horizon as the two ships sailed around the peninsula. Southbound and down by North White, on Flickr The Copperhead had been adapted into the flagship of the expedition, well most of the men stayed aboard the Aurora. Southbound and down by North White, on Flickr In the Cabin of the Copperhead, Count Mesabi, Darby, Dmitri, and Samantha studied the maps. Southbound and down by North White, on Flickr "You know, I'm just happy to get away from Agnes for a while." Said the Count. "Did I ever tell you she once challenged an Apple tree to a duel? Then she blew it up with a cannon." "Eye two am fleeing from my wife." Said Dmitri, "She is much liek your woman." "I'm still not sure why you need an accountant to travel to the new world." Muttered Darby. "Well, someone needs to count the amount of TNT we have." Said Samantha wryly. "I did. It's a lot. Why do we need TNT to discover a new world?" Asked Darby "Darby, I think you know why." Said the Count. Darby did not, but realized he would never get an answer. FIN
  4. Location: Mesabi Landing Tags: Small Commerce Yet another warehouse by North White, on Flickr Mesabi Landing had to store all the stuff it ascertained. But it was also a popular place for the WTC infantry to slack off... FIN C&C appreciated, Nothing big or interesting today. Just a quick build to help me build up Mesabi Landing.
  5. Location: Jameston Type: Medium Factory Agnes angrily stomped all the way over to the next WTC factory Gunpowder Factory by North White, on Flickr Pete Zanzibar stood outside. "Madam Mesabi! Have you come to inspect our factory!" Asked Pete Excitedly "This the Gunpowder one or the Bottle one?" Asked Agnes "The Gunpowder one, madam." Gunpowder Factory by North White, on Flickr "Perfect, just the one I was looking for. And let me remind you, I'm not drunk, I just drank enough to keep my nerves steady." Said Agnes. She dropped the two muskets by some empty barrels. "Well, I'll just show you inside, so you can see everything!" Said Pete, nervously Gunpowder Factory by North White, on Flickr "Gunpowder is made of three ingredients. Sulfur, Saltpeter, and Charcoal. We have to import in the Sulfur, but the other to ingredients are manufactured here." Pete Paused. "But, unfortunately, we have to have a Corrington officer to watch everything for safety reasons." Said Pete. "Hey now! Let's see you do this job as well as I do." Said the Corrish Officer Gunpowder Factory by North White, on Flickr "All you do is tell us how much of each ingredient gets dumped in a barrel from that cheat sheet!" Yelled Pete back "Yeah, but I'm certified to read the cheat sheet. Are you?" Said the Officer Smugly. "No... Moving on. We dump barrels of Urine into sand to make saltpeter." Gunpowder Factory by North White, on Flickr "So that's what that smell is..." Muttered Agnes. "Yes, that reminds me can we build a scented candle factory next? Or perfume?" Asked Pete. "I'll think about it." said Agnes, rolling her eyes. "Next, we make charcoal. We do this in that room over there." Pete motioned to a small room off to the side of factory. Gunpowder Factory by North White, on Flickr "And finally, we combine the sulfur, the saltpeter, and the charcoal, in a big vat." Gunpowder Factory by North White, on Flickr "And we just take the powder out and put in buckets." Finished Pete. "Great great great... Can I borrow some?" Asked Agnes drunkenly. "Why?" Asked Pete. "Agnes needs to go shoot someones." Agnes burped loudly. Gunpowder Factory by North White, on Flickr "Uh, I guess... I don't think we have that caliber of ammunition here though, we're using a different type for the advanced rifles." Agnes sighed loudly. "Why is everything so hard!" Gunpowder Factory by North White, on Flickr She kicked open the door, and left in a huff. FIN Thanks for viewing my third factory of the month. I tried to recreate the process of making gunpowder to the best of what the internet says. Hopefully it looks different enough then the last one I did. I made this one bigger and tried to fill the area fully. @Ayrlego I could probably build one more for Jameston to license. I'd really like to do a Musketball factory to end the story arc. As usual, C&C appreciated.
  6. Location: Jameston Type: Medium Factory Agnes and a WTC Elite walked to the edge of Jameston, where the new musket factory had opened. They had been told to only build their buildings on the edge of town for reasons everyone knew. Musket Factory by North White, on Flickr Two Bored WTC Infantrymen stood in front of the factory. "Woah Woah Woah" Said the First. "We're guarding this building. We don't need any of you elites around!" "Yeah, Scram! We don't take your type here." Said the Second. Musket Factory by North White, on Flickr Agnes sighed. "What is it with you grunts? Is someone jealous they aren't called elite?" "No..." Said the first sheepishly. "Good," Said Agnes smugly, "Trooper, stay out here and show them how to guard a building." Agnes entered the building leaving the three soldiers to argue outside. Musket Factory by North White, on Flickr The Foreman greeted her. "Sorry for the delays, countess. We had some trouble constructing the building." "All in good time, mr. foreman. Now, show me how this factory works." "Of course!" Musket Factory by North White, on Flickr "First, Metal is pounded into the rough barrel of the gun." Musket Factory by North White, on Flickr "It's taken over to the furnace, where it's heated, sealing the cracks." Musket Factory by North White, on Flickr "Once it's been forged, we let it cool over here." Musket Factory by North White, on Flickr "Meanwhile, we assemble the flintlock mechanism." Musket Factory by North White, on Flickr Musket Factory by North White, on Flickr Musket Factory by North White, on Flickr "Additionally, the stock is cut out of wood." Musket Factory by North White, on Flickr "All of the pieces are brought to the master craftsman at the crafting table." Musket Factory by North White, on Flickr Musket Factory by North White, on Flickr Musket Factory by North White, on Flickr Musket Factory by North White, on Flickr "And the musket is assembled." Musket Factory by North White, on Flickr "Then we just package them." Musket Factory by North White, on Flickr Musket Factory by North White, on Flickr "You see, we run an efficient and productive factory here in Jameston. And now that we're operational..." Agnes cut the foreman off. Musket Factory by North White, on Flickr "Now that the factory is operational, I can put you out of your misery and put one of Mordo's men in charge." Said Agnes, with a rare smile. "Did you just pull those out of the box there? Because those aren't loaded..." The foreman said calmly. Musket Factory by North White, on Flickr "Damnit." FIN Thanks for viewing my latest factory! I hope to get one more out before the month ends. I'll take my 200 Dbs, thank you. C&C appreciated. I hope this is accurate enough for musket production. I'm not entirely sure how the barrels were made, so that part might be a bit off.
  7. Location: Belson Tags: Ship Having been launched and loaded, the WTC Judgement Sat majestically in Belson's harbour. WTC Judgement by North White, on Flickr On the Bow were four chase guns, ready to blow the hell out of anything that tried to escape. WTC Judgement by North White, on Flickr The Figurehead held the scales of justice, and a sword, ready to judge all that crossed the WTC WTC Judgement by North White, on Flickr The Judgement was crewed by the WTC's finest, the WTC elites. WTC Judgement by North White, on Flickr She was captained by Captain Gage, a veteran of the Juniper Wars, and a staunch supporter of the WTC. WTC Judgement by North White, on Flickr The Ship had both a captain's cabin and a map room, each lit my large stained glass windows. WTC Judgement by North White, on Flickr And she was ready to take to the seas.... FIN Well, thanks for viewing my latest build. I haven't had a lot of time lately, and I've spent it touching up this fine ship. She also has a fairly decent interior as well, but I lack the parts to properly furnish it. In game, she has 20 cannons, though I only have 12 ATM. Maybe I'll spend more dough so she can be more accurate. Hmmmm..... I also need to add the sails, I just wanted to get this up for the time being. The Judgement is a Class 7 and her stats are: Range =4 Maneuver =2 Firepower =8 Crew =5 Cargo =1 Hull =7 Total Used =27 @Bregir tried to make me make her more accurate, but he failed, and I kinda just made it how I wanted. Overall, I'm very happy with how she turned out, and I can't wait to build another one. I can in no way, shape or form license or operate this ship, so I think she'll be the story only ship of Agnes. But I'm not sure, as if I build a couple large factories, I could probably afford her.
  8. Location: Jameston Type: Medium Factory The Sepoys of Jameston eyed the new factory suspiciously. They had heard the stories of the WTC, and their exploits. The WTC Infantryman eyed the horse hungrily. Bottle factory by North White, on Flickr Inside the factory, Pete Zanzibar observed the workers. Bottle factory by North White, on Flickr Glass was made by melting sand into a gooey hot pulp, and gathered on a pipe. Bottle factory by North White, on Flickr The blob of glass was put into a mould made out of a barrel. Bottle factory by North White, on Flickr Bottle factory by North White, on Flickr A worker would then blow into the pipe, turning the blob of glass into a bottle. Bottle factory by North White, on Flickr After the bottles were cooled, the mould pieces were removed, and the bottles placed in crates. Bottle factory by North White, on Flickr The large crates were loaded into a cart. Bottle factory by North White, on Flickr As Zanzibar walked towards the exit he muttered to himself. "We are literally robbing the crown of Corrington with these economic incentives. Pity this had to be built at the edge of the world though. Her sister factories will make this the manufacturing capital of the new world. But it'll be a pain to ship the goods. Yes sir, it'll be a pain to ship the goods." FIN Thanks for viewing my build! Sorry for the radio silence lately. This was going to go in Mesabi Landing, but I need the cash, so Jameston I guess. C&C appreciated!
  9. The Wayfarer Trading Company has very unique uniforms. Curious for each rank? Use this handy guide! WTC Captains WTC forces by North White, on Flickr Dressed in Clean, dark tan uniforms, WTC captains wear a Bicorne. Each WTC captain commands a ship and her crew. Currently the WTC's Vessels are: WTC Aurora Class 2 WTC Copperhead Class 3 WTC Icarus Returning Class 6 WTC Beacon Class 4 WTC Infantry WTC forces by North White, on Flickr The WTC's Infantry was created to relieve the burden of the Marines, who beforehand filled all around roles for the WTC. The WTC Infantry does general guard work, and defends their land installations. WTC Marines WTC forces by North White, on Flickr The WTC Marines are the backbone of the WTC. Trained in combat, resource procurance, and shipmanship, the WTC Marines fill all sorts of roles within the organization. WTC Elites WTC forces by North White, on Flickr The highest ranking combat soldiers of the WTC belong here. Highly skilled in combat, they make sure no foreign power or trade corporation will ever harm the WTC. WTC Specialists WTC forces by North White, on Flickr WTC's specialists fill roles that regular soldiers cannot, such as snipers, translators, and assassins. WTC Operators WTC forces by North White, on Flickr Not all combat is physical! WTC's Operators consist of salesmen, lawyers, and upper level managers. They might be more cutthroat than the elites, however. These are the WTC's forces as of October, 617 iuxta imperium C&C appreciated, the elites aren't quite finished, I need more brown arm things, and they will have red feathers in their caps.
  10. Location: Madin Tags: Freebuild Madin was a busy city, far busier than any of the new world settlements. Merchants lined the streets selling all matters of goods. Brimstone, Pistols, and Pineapples were sold on this street, in front of a small building. A fine day in Tellvok by North White, on Flickr The Count and two marines walked through the crowds, past the loud cries of the merchants. A fine day in Tellvok by North White, on Flickr Dearest Agnes, Sorry for leaving Mesabi Landing with absolutely no warning. I think you know why I left. Don't try to follow me. I'll be back soon. Madin is cool. These Tellvokians put even MAESTRO to shame. They sell everything here. Not that I'm bringing you anything. Anyways, Bye. -Count Mesabi FIN Thanks for viewing this small vinaigrette. I just wanted to show a little of what I see Tellvok as. I'm not going to call it a great, well built build. But I'm happy with my fig posing, and choice. C&C appreciated, though y'all never seem to comment on my stuff....
  11. Location: Madin, Tellvok. Tags: Not a part of EGS Count Mesabi took his new ship, the Copperhead for a spin with the Aurora.

WTC Copperhead Class 3 Range = 4 Maneuver = 3 Firepower = 1 Crew = 1 Cargo = 4 Hull = 2 C&C appreciated, I just posted this topic so I can license her without using the AMCRA topic.
  12. Location: Weelond Type: Small Artisan Weelond stopover by North White, on Flickr The Crew of the WTC wandered the streets of the festive Weelond, home of the Oktoberfest. Brought about by some ancient tradition, minifigs from around the world traveled to Weelond to eat Pretzels, and get hopelessly drunk. Street venders sold all sorts of goods, But several members of the WTC found refuge on the roof of the bar their beloved leader was visiting. Weelond stopover by North White, on Flickr "Look, I know you're holding back. You were there, you can tell me what happened. So tell me what happened, Fatsidro." Said the Count Angrily. "I've alheady told you evyhing I know." Said Isidro, visibly annoyed. "I met you hih as a couhtisy." Said Isidro "What else do you know about the group? Even a Pawn knows somewhat of what's going on." Asked the Count Weelond stopover by North White, on Flickr "Not much I just was hihed to hihe a guy who hihed Thaum. I know not even theh name. But it is they who dehstoyed the Wolf's Blood." "And?" "If you come afta them, they will dehstoy you as well." He checked the scene nervously. "And they have eyes and eahs evhywhehe." Weelond stopover by North White, on Flickr "Well, if they can hear me, then I say bring it!" Said the Count FIN Thanks for viewing my oktoberfest entry. I don't think I emanated the Dutch style well enough but whatever. It used all my colourful bricks. C&C Appreciated
  13. Location: Mesabi Landing Tags: Buying Levels Purchasing Levels by North White, on Flickr "What do you mean we're broke!" Yelled Count Mesabi "Well, um... Since Ships take a while to get to port, we're currently almost out of money." Said Darby Tyler Purchasing Levels by North White, on Flickr "Heh, zould have been born a Ezlaner." Said Dmitri, not looking up from his book "Shut it, so what do we do?" Asked Count Mesabi "Take more loans out I guess" Said Darby Sadly. "Maybe the bank of Corrington can help us. It's not like anyone's going to donate to us after all the chaos you caused." Purchasing Levels by North White, on Flickr "Well, pen a letter to the bank of Corrington." Said the Count Purchasing Levels by North White, on Flickr Dear Bank of Corrington, While we are already in massive debt to you, we'd like to be more so. We need moneys. We need moneys fast. What must we do for moneys? Sincerely, Count Mesabi CEO of the WTC FIN Thanks for viewing this build for purchasing more ship levels. Assuming I ever get the money to do so. Anyone is free to donate! The build was originally my design for Oktoberfest, but I decided it didn't fit Weelond enough. It fits well in Mesabi Landing, however.
  14. Location: Mesabi Landing Type: Medium Residence Darby Tyler walked towards the Mesabi Residence, It was a beautiful day, and the sun shone bright above Mesabi Landing. Mesabi Residence by North White, on Flickr He walked past the two Mesabi Children playing with swords, no doubt looted from somewhere. Mesabi Residence by North White, on Flickr He Passed Sgt. Sally, who was reading a newspaper. Mesabi Residence by North White, on Flickr He Passed a fight between an Oleon soldier, and Corrington one. Mesabi Residence by North White, on Flickr At Last, he reached the door to the Mesabi residence. Suddenly, a gunshot was heard. Mesabi Residence by North White, on Flickr He looked up to see Agnes Mesabi killing a Sea Gull. Mesabi Residence by North White, on Flickr The Sea Gull fell to the ground with a plop. Darby sighed. He had already eaten Sea Gull Soup twice that week. Mesabi Residence by North White, on Flickr Agnes leaped from the roof. Mesabi Residence by North White, on Flickr She landed next to Darby. Mesabi Residence by North White, on Flickr She took a swig from her bottle. "Dinner will be in an hour! Sea Gull Soup!" She said drunkenly. "Yay." Said Darby. "Is the Count inside?" "Yup! She said, and sauntered off to watch the fight. Mesabi Residence by North White, on Flickr Darby entered the Mesabi Residence, and walked through the kitchen. Mesabi Residence by North White, on Flickr Count Mesabi sat with Sgt. Eric, and the Saboteur. "Well, you did put in an effort. That at least should be rewarded." Said Count Mesabi "Thank you!" Said Sgt. Eric Mesabi Residence by North White, on Flickr "Even though you came to me with nothing, and it was complete luck that the Saboteur was brought to me. I mean the natives only come here for the fruit." "Ummm." Said Sgt. Eric "But since you're here, let's get this guy to talk!" Said Count Mesabi "No! Please!" Said the now clothed Saboteur, "Anything but that! make him go away, he's an animal!" "Why don't you leave, Sgt. Eric. You'll be paid by someone. I think you're services are no longer needed." Said the Count. Mesabi Residence by North White, on Flickr Sgt. Eric quickly left. "Darby! What are you doing here?" Asked Count Mesabi "Dmitri was getting on my nerves again. He kept going on about the 'Papaver somniferum' on the island. Whatever that means." Said Darby "Weird. But we have a conundrum. This man isn't the saboteur. The Saboteur was hired by a man named Thuam, and this man knows nothing." "Huh." Said Darby "So the question is, what do we do with him..." FIN Thanks for viewing my latest build! This one has been on my shelf for a month, while I waited for the minichallenge to wrap up. So, uh, no excuses this time. Extra Pics Here are my thoughts on everyone's entries. @Bodi, Sorry if I've marginalized your characters to much in this build. you really put a lot of work into the challenge, and I liked your builds. I really liked how you used Count Mesabi too. @Professor Thaum, would have liked to have seen you make it to Mesabi Landing. Your story left a lot of unanswered questions. I always like Collabing with you though. @Bregir Herlock Sholmes was an interesting character, but you should have made him an opium addict, like his source character. I might have to change that for you. . Your builds were great, however, and very nice. @Keymonus Your build was really the most creative. I hadn't even thought of using Varcoast or a NPC nation! Bravo! @Maxim I Good job integrating the WTC's shenanigans into the Challenge. I really liked your build too. Oh! And I'm feeling nice today, so I think I'll add a participation prize to 3rd, 4th, and 5th place. I'll each build you a small property of your choosing in a settlement of your choosing, so long as you PM me by November. Expect Shenanigans!
  15. Great work everyone, your entries were all excellent. Here's the list! @Bodi @Professor Thaum @Bregir @Maxim I @Keymonus Vote on who you think's build and story is best! Thank you all for your entries! I'll remind you of prizes 1st Place: WTC will build and license a large property in the settlement of your choosing And, you decide what really happened. Was it an Eslandolan plot? Native interference? Mardierian reprisal? Captain Mesabi? You decide! 2nd Place: WTC will build and license a medium property in the settlement of your choosing Finally, I'm disappointed in Y'all. No one said Count Mesabi did it! Also, If I missed anyone, please let me know. I just woke up... Now Vote!
  16. Location: Camp Isaac Type: Small Educational It was a sunny day on Cascadia, as Count Mesabi, and Darby Tyler walked along the path with their guide. Camp Isaac by North White, on Flickr "And here we have the Big Cat observation post. I'm not sure where Major Allcock is, but I'm sure we can find him." Said their guide, Dexter Kip. "Let's not. He's still mad at me for the whole, well, let's not get into it." Said Count Mesabi Camp Isaac by North White, on Flickr "We're so glad to have visitors! And your donation of Eslandolan rum, furniture, and carpets will do much to further our scientific causes." Said Dexter "I'm still not sure where the marines got that stuff." Said Darby Camp Isaac by North White, on Flickr "Don't worry about it. Just enjoy the jungle air! Maybe we'll see a tiger! Did you know tiger's are native to Mokolei? Fascinating!" Said Count Mesabi The three tromped over the bridge towards the observation post. Fish hung as bait from the wood and stone structure. Camp Isaac by North White, on Flickr "You talk to the man out here, Darby. You're both holding books, so you must have something in common." Said Count Mesabi, "We're going to watch for tigers and talk finances." "You made me bring the book!" Said Darby. Nevertheless, he waited outside. Camp Isaac by North White, on Flickr "You are man of Science? No?" Asked the Royal Pioneer. "Well, uh, I'm an accountant. So Arithmetic I guess?" Said Darby "I am Dmitri. I observe Cats. Birds. Living things. Science." Said Dmitri Camp Isaac by North White, on Flickr "That's very Corrish of you." Said Darby "I am Not Corrish, am from Varcoast. Not all Science types Corrish. Not all Money types Eslans." Said Dmitri "How'd you end up here?" Asked Darby Camp Isaac by North White, on Flickr "Am explorer. But Dmitri explored enough of Cascadia. You going on adventure? No? Take Dmitri with." Said Dmitri "Well, I'd have to ask the count..." "No. Dmitri come with." Meanwhile, Count Mesabi and Dexter talked. Camp Isaac by North White, on Flickr "Listen, uh I was pretty drunk when I signed up for this Royal Society of Natural Philosophy thing. So is there any chance...." Count Mesabi was cut off. "Fee is non refundable." Said Dexter "Well then I am glad to be a member." Said the count. FIN Thanks for viewing my latest build! I bought This for the parts, and decided to make a build with it, after seeing @Bregir's fantastic rope bridge build. The build is supposed to be an old Native building built over by the Royal pioneers. I don't have any big cats, so I couldn't include any, unfortunately. C&C appreciated!
  17. Location: Trabor Type: ????? The rowboat landed hard on the beach of Trador. "Why are we doing this again?" Asked WTC marine Sally "So that Count Mesabi can prove the WTC's Prowess in soccer as well as in commerce." Answered Joe, the one eyed Marine Invasion of Trador by North White, on Flickr Slowly, the WTC marines disembarked, Walking their way up to the beacon house The Customs officer greeted them. "You here for the football cup?" "No, we're here for the soccer cup." Said Biff, the squad leader "The what?" The Customs officer seemed confused. "Can we just kill him?"Asked Sally "Then we'd be disqualified. You read the rules. Murder is only allowed if their is a dispute over betting." Said Joe Invasion of Trador by North White, on Flickr Several marines groaned. They walked through the customs house and lined up, ready for the big game. Invasion of Trador by North White, on Flickr From right to left: Jackie, Joe, Sally, Kruschev, and Biff FIN Thanks for viewing my build. This concludes things for august. I'm not sure what to license this as, It's kinda a lighthouse, kinda a customs house. So, please let me know. This is my first build from my dorm, with what scraps I dragged with me, so the quality all around isn't great. C&C appreciated, and I'm glad to have participated in this challenge. More Pictures
  18. [K-X00] New Orders

    Location: Earth Tags: Assignment The Elevator in the Yamato building took Captain Mesabi to the 601st floor in just a few minutes. Another miracle of Modern Technology Captain Mesabi thought. He walked to the entrance of the briefing room. New Orders by North White, on Flickr A Kawashita Stormninja stood in front of the entrance of the briefing room. His ranking was far above Mesabi. His eyes were hidden behind sunglasses, and his face covered by a ceremonial bulletproof ninja covering. He grunted at Captain Mesabi "Business?" Asked the Stormninja "Captain Mesabi. Secret Mission." Replied Captain Mesabi New Orders by North White, on Flickr "Head inside." The Stormninja moved aside New Orders by North White, on Flickr Captain Mesabi walked into the briefing room where Mister Baxter and Mister Fischer stood in front of a holographic console. New Orders by North White, on Flickr "Captain Mesabi. You're record precedes you." Said Mister Baxter "When other Kawashita team members in Andromeda went MIA, you kept up the fight." Said Mister Fischer "Thank you." Said Captain Mesabi New Orders by North White, on Flickr "So let's go over your mission, Captain." Said Mister Baxter Mister Fischer pressed a button on the console. A blurry hologram of a space station appeared. New Orders by North White, on Flickr "This is the only image of a station located somewhere in Andromeda. It was created by the Omega Group, a mysterious group that has operated in the shadows since the first forays into Andromeda." Said Mister Fischer "We think they're developing a weapon. But that's just speculative." Said Mister Baxter "So you want me to?" Asked Captain Mesabi New Orders by North White, on Flickr "Find it. It must have sustained damage in the radiation flares, so personal on the station may have been evacuated. But again, this is all speculative." Said Mister Baxter New Orders by North White, on Flickr "And once I've found it?" Asked Captain Mesabi "Report back to Headquarters. A ship will be provided, once the portal to Andromeda is reopened." Said Mister Fischer "Ready your crew. Prepare them well." Said Mister Baxter "Thank you sirs, I'll leave immediately." Said Captain Mesabi "And one more thing. Octan will be looking for this as well. Stay vigilant." Said Mister Fischer Captain Mesabi left, his mind only on the new mission. New Orders by North White, on Flickr FIN Thanks for viewing my first entry into AG2! I can't wait for the rules to come out and for the game to wind up again. In the meantime I'll be over at BoBS.

Oh, and fun fact, the doors actually work in this build. I just felt like telling y'all that.
  19. It was another busy day in Mesabi Landing with the construction of Library of Learning. Count Mesabi was showing off the new structure to his beloved wife Agnes. Library of learning by North White, on Flickr "This structure will finally put Mesabi Landing on the map!" Said Count Mesabi "Because Libraries are such tourist attractions." Replied Agnes "I think you'll like it." Library of learning by North White, on Flickr "Who's the librarian? She's new." Asked Agnes "I don't know, she just kinda appeared when we started putting books in." Replied Count Mesabi "Huh." Library of learning by North White, on Flickr "Check out this rug! I special ordered it from MAESTRO." Said Count Mesabi excitedly. "It's a little small. There's a lot of boxes in here. Are you using this as storage!" replied Agnes "We only have like 20 books. it's a shame to waste the space." Agnes sighed. She walked over to a bookshelf. Library of learning by North White, on Flickr "This is a heavy book. A history of Corrington. Hmmm...." She hurled the book at Count Mesabi. Library of learning by North White, on Flickr The book knocked him over. He grunted in pain. "Now, let's talk about building me a house, SO I DON'T HAVE TO SLEEP ON A SHIP ANYMORE!" Yelled Agnes Count Mesabi sighed. FIN Thanks for viewing my latest build. C&C appreciated, but I do know the build could be a lot better. I kinda ran out of time before I leave for college. Which is thursday. . That and I dropped it once and had to rebuild it. Oh well.

  21. Lt. Billsby left the small rowboat and met up with the fort commander in Argentia, Major Mason. Fort Agravia by North White, on Flickr "So, you're the new guy eh? Well, welcome to hades." Said Major Mason "Excuse me?" Asked Lt. Billsby Fort Agravia by North White, on Flickr "The role of this fort is to keep the WTC from doing anything that endangers the empire." Answered Mason "And that makes this hades because?" Asked Billsby Fort Agravia by North White, on Flickr "Wait why does the fort not have front doors?" Asked Billsby "The WTC stole them, because quote: 'Build more ships or something' apparently" Answered Mason Fort Agravia by North White, on Flickr "Let's go to my office." Fort Agravia by North White, on Flickr "So, this is my office. And bedroom. And kitchen. And dining room. I hate it here. Did I mention that?" "It can't be all bad." Said Billsby Fort Agravia by North White, on Flickr "Here's a book of emergency procedures to follow in event the WTC does something stupid and or bad. Let me read you a snippet." Said Mason "Okay?" "Code 403. If the WTC is to summon a deity, extradimensional demon, spooky ghost, or the kraken, you are to destroy Mesabi Landing and it's inhabitants." "Wait how on would they even..." "Code 404, huh this is missing. Okay 405, if the WTC is to cause Eslandola to go to war with Corrington, you are to destroy Mesabi Landing and it's inhabitants." "Wait how are we even supposed to do that?" "I'm glad you asked..." Fort Agravia by North White, on Flickr "Recent developments in military science have allowed us to create new more powerful weapons, things that can really, really, do some damage." Fort Agravia by North White, on Flickr "Meet Betty. 400 lbs of Solid murderosity. We figure she should be able to destroy Mesabi Landing from here in less than 10 shots."

Fort Agravia by North White, on Flickr Fort Agravia by North White, on Flickr "Don't worry guys, I've got this, yelled a WTC marine, armed with a pike. FIN Thanks for viewing this installment. C&C appreciated everyone, let me know if this story is to ridiculous or anything, I kinda think it's pushing it so I might rewrite it.
  22. Location: Mesabi Landing, Argentia The Stockpile was built on the inland section of the Island. A WTC guard sat outside the house, because they had nothing better for him to do. Headquarters by North White, on Flickr "So, let's go over what we took. 10 Cases of wine..." Darby was interrupted "Nah, that's gone. I drank about a case, and the rest I fed to the horses." Replied Count Mesabi Headquarters by North White, on Flickr "You know at this point I'm not even going to a..." "So I heard about this place in Oleon that feeds wine to cattle." "So Naturally, you wasted 10 Cases of wine..." "Eight. No wait, Seven on the horses." "Making are only mode of transportation drunk." Headquarters by North White, on Flickr "Yes. And I think it was six cases." FIN Sorry for my absns. This was the only thing I had ready to go for BoBS for the month of July. Vacation and work really cut down my free time.

Landing by North White, on Flickr "Today, Men, is a great day," Said the Count. Landing by North White, on Flickr "Today is the day that we found the city of Mesabi Landing, home of the Wayfarer Trading Company, soon to be..." Mesabi was cut off. "Wait, you're naming the town after yourself?" Asked Darby "Well, not myself, after the Mesabi line." answered Count Mesabi "Same Difference." Replied Darby "Look, Arlinsport, Elyzabethville, Hussar's Isle, King's Harbour, Mooreton Bay, Port Raleigh, Stormhaven, and Quinsville all were named after people, why shouldn't I partake in the fun? After all, I am a count." Said Count Mesabi "Oh for Zeus's sake, would you stop bringing that up? and I don't think Stormhaven is named after a person." said Darby "Oh course it was, Stormhaven was once a haven for a person named Storm, that's why it's called that!" "I really don't think..." "I mean, who would want a haven for literal storms, that place would be awful." "No, it's a haven from storms." "Oh." The boats crashed against the surf and Count Mesabi leaped out. Landing by North White, on Flickr The wreckage of a ship and several corpses sat on the beach. "Huh, no crabs with hats. I'm a little disappointed." Muttered Count Mesabi The Troops set off into the interior of the Island, wondering exactly what might be on the mysterious isle.

  25. The WTC Beacon Rocked Heavily as it sailed towards Argentia. Heavily laden with goods taken from Nova Malto, the ship was low in the water. En route by North White, on Flickr "Ship Ahoy!" Yelled a WTC Marine En route by North White, on Flickr "Oy! Man the guns! I don't care what flag she's flying, we'll blow them to the bottom if they get to close!" Yelled Captain Mesabi from his cabin "You sure sir? She's flying our colours! It's the WTC Icarus Returning!"" The Marine hollared back "Oh." The two ships pulled along side each other En route by North White, on Flickr Captain Mesabi got over to the other ship, so he could talk to the crew personally En route by North White, on Flickr "Agnes?" Captain Mesabi asked "Well if it isn't my befated husband, Captain Mesabi, out on another one of his follies." Lady Mesabi said Shrilly. "Daddy!" the Mesabi children exclaimed. "Hello children. How are you?" Captain Mesabi asked "Did you bring us something?" They exclaimed En route by North White, on Flickr "What? No, your mother didn't tell me me you were coming!" Captain Mesabi said earnestly "Aw, you're a terrible daddy." Said Their Daughter "Yeah! I'm going to break something!" Said their Son "No, don't, uh, you can each have something we stole from Nova Malto." Captain Mesabi said "Yay!" They Exclaimed "Nova Malto was it? Do you know how I heard that you were on some Eslandolan Isle, doing gods know what? A royal messenger came to our house in Belson, and told us you were being made a Count for your actions there. Was Arlinsport not good enough for you? Just like Belson was?" Lady Mesabi asked angrily "Um..." "And do you know what it's like being the newest countess in Belson? It's awful, all the other nobility treat you like your a mega blok. So I said enough! I'm tired of raising these kids with tons of servants in Belson, and I'm coming out here to make you deal with it." Continued Lady Mesabi, "Uh, wait, I'm a count?" Asked Count Mesabi, confused "And it's the first half decent thing you've done for this family. Quitting your job as a queen's guard just to flee to Arlinsport wasn't great for our finances! Just because I have family money doesn't mean you can leave this family to the wolves." "Can we at least acknowledge We're now royalty?" Asked Count Mesabi "Once you understand just how mad I am at you." Said Lady Mesabi. Their was a certain fire in her eyes that led Count Mesabi to believe that this lecture would last a while And as the ships continued their voyage to Argentia, he found he was right. FIN Thanks for reading my story build for Captain Mesabi becoming a Count. I thought I'd introduce the Mesabi family while I'm at it. Everything is reused, and I really need to work on getting a bigger background, so I can fit more stuff in. Oh! and here's a video summing up my situation https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=czqhyVGdYiE
