  3. 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.

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.

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!

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 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!

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!

Which is thursday. . That and I dropped it once and had to rebuild it. Oh well.
  10. 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.

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."

  12. 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."

  14. 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."

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. Landing by North White, on Flickr FIN Thanks for reading my little build, just another story update before I can really start putting properties in Mesabi Landing. Hope you all enjoyed, C&C appreciated
  16. 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
  17. While scouting for his next mission, Captain Mesabi encountered a patrol.... Prelude by North White, on Flickr With a swift click, his underbarrel shotgun fired, ripping the man in half. Prelude by North White, on Flickr Nothing Would stop Captain Mesabi from his mission... Prelude by North White, on Flickr FIN Thanks for viewing my build. I'm still in this, sorry I missed campaign 2 . I'm not entirely sure if this can be scored, because it's not entirely reconnaissance. Judges, use your best discretion. And please let me know if this kind of build doesn't work. Apparently you can't do recon until level 21. Please wait to judge this build until such time as I hit that level. However long that takes...
  18. Dear Sirs, and Madams shareholders, Wayfarer Trading Company, hereby referred to as WTC, hereby launches relief efforts as part of operation Pax Corlandia. The Ship, WTC Beacon, loaded with relief supplies, has set a course for the ruined settlement of Malto. WTC will help make sure that the new settlement of Nova Malto, stays free.

Regards, Captain Mesabi CEO of Wayfarer Trading Company The wind blew Wayfarer Trading Company Accountant Darby Tyler's hair, as he leaned over the side, having finished vomiting. Nova Malto by North White, on Flickr The WTC Beacon swayed gently in the breeze. It was another sunny sea day. Nova Malto by North White, on Flickr A seagull landed on the railing. "We'll be reaching land soon!" yelled the helmsman Nova Malto by North White, on Flickr Darby walked into the captain's Cabin, where Captain Mesabi and Lt. Isaac stood. Nova Malto by North White, on Flickr "You finished?" Asked Captain Mesabi "I don't know how you people do this, I feel so ill." replied Darby "Cheer up mate! We'll be hitting land soon." said Lt. Isaac "Yes! And then we will help those poor wretches of Mardien blood, and they will treat us as their saviors! And WTC will make lots of money off this endeavour." Said Captain Mesabi cheerily "How exactly will this pay off our massive debt to Brickwolf and the bank of Corrington?" Asked Darby skeptically "Simple! it's a threefold strategy. The Queen is subsidizing this operation, WTC will have the first foothold in Malto, and grave robbing!" Answered Captain Mesabi "I..." Darby was speechless. "Oh, that reminds me, I went over our cargo manifest, and we forgot shovels." Said Lt. Isaac. "Bah! Does anything ever go right?" Yelled Captain Mesabi Nova Malto by North White, on Flickr FIN With the WTC Beacon having anchored close off shore, the First Relief Division marched its way along the road into Malto Smoke was in the air, and fallen soldiers lined the road into the city. Soon they reached the gate, Nova Malto by North White, on Flickr Nearby, a mass grave was being filled with bodies Nova Malto by North White, on Flickr "Alright Darby, make a note of that spot. We'll come back tonight" Said Captain Mesabi gleefully "Captain, even if I wasn't outraged by this, as it is not only an affront to minifigkind, the Gods, and what Corrington stands for, I'm fairly certain they took the valuables off the bodies before they buried them." Answered Darby "Oh." Captain Mesabi replied The company entered the gate Nova Malto by North White, on Flickr The acrid smell of smoke wafted through the air. The scene was one of chaos, a carriage had crashed into the gate, and had been half stripped for firewood. The Garrison was half collapsed, having been hit by cannonfire. A large bonfire took up the street, where a horse was being roasted. Nova Malto by North White, on Flickr "Did I ever tell you I had to eat horse? Was back during the war. Oleon raided our supplies, so we had to make do. So we ate horses. I tell you, there's nothing better than roast horse after a long battle." Said Captain Mesabi, wistfully "I think I have to vomit again." Answered Darby "Honestly, how is that even possible, that's all you did on the voyage over!" Replied Captain Mesabi The Residents of Malto eyed them suspiciously as they walked through the ruined city, but did nothing. Nova Malto by North White, on Flickr "Hades! They're starving!" Muttered Darby "Well, remember, you can't give malnourished people a bunch of food, no matter how hungry they are. It'll kill them. Saw that in the war, one company got separated, ran out of horses, and when they came back, they ate a bunch a food and got sick. Couple died." Replied Captain Mesabi "You're a fount of knowledge, Sir." Said Lt. Isaac. "Come on, we'll set up in the Inn." Said Captain Mesabi The three walked into the Royal Blue Inn, while the rest of the troops set up guard outside. A woman sat weeping over a coffin Nova Malto by North White, on Flickr "Let's see, maybe they have a table upstairs. If not, we'll use the coffin." Said Captain Mesabi The Woman sobbed harder. The three found a table upstairs. Darby rolled out some maps and papers. Nova Malto by North White, on Flickr "Alright, now the real work begins." Said Captain Mesabi FIN It was a week later, and the three sat at a desk, poring over papers. Nova Malto by North White, on Flickr "Men, I think we're off to a good start." Said Captain Mesabi "We've got a fort established and the city is being rebuilt. They're calling it Nova Malto." Said Lt. Isaac "I coined that." Said Captain Mesabi smugly "How did we build a fort so fast?" Asked Darby "Simple, we built over the old one, and starving people are highly motivated." Replied Captain Mesabi "Wait what?" Outside, work continued, with supplies being sorted and stored. Nova Malto by North White, on Flickr Below the three, a Mardien Chef prepared dinner. Nova Malto by North White, on Flickr And from the walls of the fort, a soldier kept watch, assuring that anyone who threatened the people of Malto, would be stopped. Nova Malto by North White, on Flickr FIN Thanks for viewing my trio of builds for Operation Pax Corlandia. I don't know what to license the ship as (any suggestions?) The Wall of Malto we be licensed as a large Artisan, the fort as medium fort. C&C appreciated
  19. Relief efforts were finally winding down, as the Settlement of Nova Malto settled into its new position as a free city. But still a few ships had to unload their precious relief supplies. Captain Mesabi and Account Darby Tyler stood on the quayside, as the WTC Wolf's Blood was being unloaded. "So the Manifest says its carrying gunpowder, alcohol, textiles and mining explosives?" Said Darby "Well, technically mining explosives are just gunpowder and textiles, but yeah." Replied Captain Mesabi So what do we do now? Are troops have to leave to make sure we don't violate neutrality rules!" Said Darby "Eh, don't worry about it." Replied Captain Mesabi "Happy Birthday!" an unknown voice cried. "You say something?" Asked Darby BOOOOOOOOOM!!!!! The Ship had practically vaporized. The Quayside was littered with splinters and broken crates and barrels. There was screaming all around. "Oh Gods! Oh No Oh No Oh No!" Yelled Darby "Pipe down, we've got work to do." Said Captain Mesabi "I think we might be on this rock a little longer than planned..." He concluded FIN Thanks for viewing my build, just a little something I whipped up before the end of the month, I know it's a little simplistic, but it serves its needs. C&C appreciated.
  20. The ships had finally started to come in, and Captain Mesabi was helping to unload the cargo from the Bad Blood Rats! by North White, on Flickr "Alright, let's open up these crates of cheese, grain, and corn." Said Captain Mesabi He pried open a crate. Rats! by North White, on Flickr A rat leaped out, than another Rats! by North White, on Flickr Captain Mesabi shoved the crates into the sea. Rats! by North White, on Flickr "You know we could have saved some of that." Said the Dock worker. "Nope. Nope nope nope." FIN
  21. Out of some sad form of pity, Captain Mesabi had donated half a doubloon to the Mardien Defense fund. This is where the money went. Mardien Militia stood on the shore of Skaford's Landing. Heroic commander Jacobus Sien stood vigilant for the Eslandola attack force. Till my dying breath by North White, on Flickr The Elsandolans launched their boats from Warships off the coast. Their elite troops were ready for landing. Till my dying breath by North White, on Flickr Shots were fired, but they all missed. Each side reloaded as the lifeboat rowed closer. Till my dying breath by North White, on Flickr A second wave of shots were fired. a Mardien was killed. Till my dying breath by North White, on Flickr With a war cry, the Eslandolans leaped out of the boat. The Mardiens struggled to reload their muskets before the Eslandolans could overtake them. Till my dying breath by North White, on Flickr A shot rang out, and an Eslandolan Elite fell backwards into the water, a cloud of blood emerged in the water. Till my dying breath by North White, on Flickr The Eslandolan leader reached Jacobus. He was busy loading his rifle. They locked eyes. Till my dying breath by North White, on Flickr With a bang, he fell. The Mardiens had failed. Perhaps on another beach, they had prevailed, but here, the Eslandolans took the day. The leader blew the smoke wafting out of his pistol. Till my dying breath by North White, on Flickr Jacobus's hat lay over his face, covering up the massive hole where his face had been. Till my dying breath by North White, on Flickr Soon, more Eslandolans would be landing. But the first battle was over. Till my dying breath by North White, on Flickr FIN Thanks for viewing my first entry in a BoBS contest! This is for Mardien, even though the Eslandolans win. C&C appreciated!
  22. Side Mission for the GBW campaign 1. Please let me know if this is tagged wrong Captain Mesabi surveyed his personal company, Pvt Heidi and Pvt Johnson. GBW1 by North White, on Flickr "We're moving out. Orders are to get with the rest of the company and head to the front lines." "Sir yes Sir!" GBW1 by North White, on Flickr They hopped into the jeep and drove away. GBW1 by North White, on Flickr FIN Thanks for viewing my first GBW build! C&C appreciated.
  23. Type: Commercial Location: Arlinsport Captain Mesabi inspected the new warehouse of Wayfarer Trading Company. It replaced the rundown mess that was the old one. New warehouse by North White, on Flickr Soldiers stood guard over the merchandise. Right now it was sparse, but as soon as the ships would come in, the warehouse would be packed. Captain Mesabi walked up to the quartermaster. He solemnly saluted the captain. New warehouse by North White, on Flickr "Everything ready for when the ships come in?" Asked Captain Mesabi "Yes Sir" The Quartermaster replied. New warehouse by North White, on Flickr "Good, I'll notify you as soon as they come in." FIN Thanks for viewing april's first freebuild! C&C appreciated. This build was built as a dual purpose build for both BoBS and GBW, so It's a little cheaty.
  24. [K-B06] Finale

    Location: B06 Sorn Tags: Exploration Icarus Returning's crew sat on the beach. It was a beautiful day. The sun was shining, and the breeze was nice. AG finale by North White, on Flickr "Captain, do you think we should actually do our job?" Asked Rusty AG finale by North White, on Flickr "Rusty, Kawashita is like Rome. And when in Rome? Do as the Romans." Replied Captain Mesabi AG finale by North White, on Flickr "So... do Nothing?" "Exactly." FIN Thank you for viewing the finale of my AG1 Builds! I've gone along way since I started. I know I'm not the best builder, but ya'll viewed and commented on me anyways. I'd like to thank the judges, and the staff. Thank you to @EpsilonEta for helping me start, @Dannylonglegs for doing my first CoLab with. I don't know where you are man, but I hope you come back to Eurobricks. Captain Mesabi and crew will return in AG2 whenever that happens. Octan may have won, but Kawashita is always the winner in spirit. Oh, and this build was originally for BoBS. So, feel free to deduct points if necessary, at this point it's like whatever.
  25. From the Logs of Dr. Abigail Joyce, Wayfarer Trade Company's chief explorer. Day 42 "It took us several days of exploring in the jungle before we found the natives. They appeared peaceful, at first. They greeted us cordially, and through an interpreter, one asked us to attend a ceremony. If it brought us closer to the Gold, we were happy to oblige." Treasure trove by North White, on Flickr "Through the jungle we went, following a past that went past a burbling stream. Further expeditions would be able to identify the many new species of plants and birds that swarmed the jungle. I must confess, however, that I was not the ideal Corrington scientist. I had student debt, and I could really use a cut of the gold to pay them off." Treasure trove by North White, on Flickr "We all gathered in front of a platform, covered in gold. A glittering chest full of gold sat above us, an alter for their heathen gods. We were so close then. I began formulating a plan in my mind." Treasure trove by North White, on Flickr "They Natives brought out a hostage, a thin man who appeared to be of Mardien descent. He seemed frightened." Treasure trove by North White, on Flickr "The Native priests threw him over the alter. Slowly, the high priest raised his blade." Treasure trove by North White, on Flickr "We watched in silent horror as the Priest brought the knife down. Our interpreter explained. The Gold must be blessed with blood." Treasure trove by North White, on Flickr "When the priest was finished, the body was cast over the side, into a pile of bones." Treasure trove by North White, on Flickr "Our interpreter told us that we would speak to the King now that the ceremony was finished. Clearly, we had to take the gold from these Heathen savages. But where were the other Mardiens?" Treasure trove by North White, on Flickr FIN Thank you for viewing the second installment of Challenge 5 part E. This is my 32x32 entry. C&C appreciated. I want to ask you guys though, am I making these to violent? I've definitely have been going for a PG13 rating because we're all adults here, but I'm not sure if people enjoy that. Let me know if you do or don't like that.
