  1. It's that time of year again: time for Oktoberfest! The annual BoBS Oktoberfest celebration features food and drink, contests of skill, games and amusements, traditional/historical costumes, food and drink (did we mention food and drink?), and more! This year the Eslandolan Oktoberfest celebration again takes place in the town of Punto Sur on Maldria in the New Haven Sea. Last year saw the settlement grow from a frontier outpost to a bustling town with denizens from all the factions of the Brick Seas. As you can tell from Punto Sur’s original trading post (and the cast of characters pictured above), the town has a Classic Pirates aesthetic. As such, all entries should have a Classic Pirates vibe of some sort, and appear fitting with a Classic Pirates port town, either in traditional 1989 form or updated for 2021 style and techniques. This year also poses a question: Where do all those partying minifigs live? We always see the visiting sailors who are ready for shore leave, but what about the locals -- the merchants and craftsmen and dock hands and fishermen? Do they live in rustic rural homes, colorful urban row houses, sprawling tropical villas, or something else? Rules: Your entry should show an Oktoberfest activity in Punto Sur, with an emphasis on the permanent residents of such a growing colonial outpost. Show residents taking part in the festivities while making a new home for themselves in the islands. Entries must be licensable properties. Players may submit as many entries as they want, but may only win one prize per category. In addition to posting your entry in the forum (ideally with a [OKT] tag in the title), please post a link to your build in this thread and in the Punto Sur settlement thread. Entries must be posted by October 31. Categories: There are two categories this year: Residences, and All Other property types (Artisan, Commerce, Factory, Education, and Culture properties combined). Identify what category you're entering when you post your entry. Entries will be judged on presentation, quality of build, story, fit with Punto Sur's architectural style (Classic Pirate, both retro and modern), and fit with the Oktoberfest/festival theme. The only size requirement is a 16x16 minimum. Prizes: The top three entries in each category will win a free property license (large/medium small for first/second/third place), to be activated by microbuild, usable only in the New Haven Sea. Builders will also be reimbursed for licensing costs for any property licensed through the EGS, or Capt Wolf will purchase (at 2x the license cost) any property a builder does not wish to license.
  2. Isabela Montegro had grown up in an Eslandolan castle surrounded by old suits of armor. Her family's history stretched back nearly a thousand years in that part of Eslandola. As a young girl she had loved listening to her father tell stories of chivalrous knights and proud kings. Now the proud wife of merchant Javier Montegro, Isabela lived in the Eslandolan settlement of Punto Sur. In order to bring a smile to her face, her husband had built their new home to look like a miniature castle. On gorgeous summer days they would sip brandy on the roof parapets. To celebrate Oktoberfest, the Montegros sponsored a local joust! Two stablehands volunteered to be the knights and the Montegros provided blunt wooden lances and suits of armor. The dragons were pitted against the lions, and much of the town came to cheer on the spectacle! --------------------- OOC: My submission to the Oktoberfest 621 competition. I may have mistaken 'Classic' in the competition description for Classic Castle To be licensed as a medium residence in Punto Sur
  3. As Ignacio took the last swig from his stein, he rushed to catch up to his friend Paolo. They'd been at the new Ayuntamiento enjoying themselves, but had decided to head for home. Ignacio had just finished his fourth stein and he was starting to feel it. "Hold up! I'm out!" He heard something rustle in the bushes off to the right. ----------------- OOC: This isn't for the competition, I just thought it would be fun We have houseguests at the moment and I haven't had a chance to start my entry yet but figured I could do something small. Finally got some of the 3x3 macaroni tiles and it is so satisfying to nest them between the 4x4 and 2x2 macaronis!
  4. At the height of Oktoberfest, things sometimes can get... a little out of hand. It is unclear if this was a "pirate raid" or "fest shenanigans," but in either case the damage was light, easily repaired, and all involved were drunk. Right after the fest tents cleared out for the night, a mob/band/party of sailors/fest goers passed the brewery on their way home. Deciding that in fact, they had not had enough to drink, they broke in and helped themselves. Morning found them still hard at work trying to drink the place dry. Yes, the normally tranquil factory, using the rich soil along the creek to grow their own hops, a picturesque place to work. Normally, alive with clockwork precision, particularly gearing up towards the high demand of fest season. The factory had been at max capacity for weeks, filling the racks with kegs for the Punto Sur festivities. But, tor the last 24 hours has been more like the fest tents on the tail end than the brewery on the front one. One report included drunken sailors trying to "cut out the middle men" and gorging themselves off half-ripe hops, straight off the vine... probably the best thing for them, they had probably had enough by that point anyway. Luckily, it appears that the most substantial costs of the whole event was the astonishing cut to the breweries inventory. The owners have claimed that even accounting for what was clearly spilled, the amount of beer consumed by the wayward sailors was, "absurd!" Though the demand is certainly high enough for their product, this temporary transfer of ownership has prompted the owner to consider selling this money maker to set up shop in a line of work with less on the job hazards.
  5. Welcome to the Punto Sur Biergarten, the location of choice for all your Oktoberfest celebrations. Drinks, food, music.....we have it all! Come in, sit down, grab a pint with your mates, and partake in all the mouthwatering morsels our kitchen prepares. Steak, brätwurst, turkey legs, laugenbrezeln, biscuits...all of our food is prepared by our owners (the Schroeder family). And to wet your whistle, we pour only the finest brews and beverages from throughout the New Haven Sea, highlighted by our home-brewed keg of Dastardly Dirk's Doppelbock. For entertainment, our very own band Das Tuba commands the stage, performing some of their hit songs "Punto Sur State of Mind", "Tubaback", and "Twilight of the Beer Gods". Set aside your worries, grievances, faction rivalries (unless someone insults your mother, then fisticuffs are permitted....as appears to be the case between a few inebriated soldiers ). Enjoy the company of friends and strangers alike, stuff your bellies, drink 'til you can't see straight, plan your next move on Terraversa, and enjoy this glorious Oktoberfest season. Once you enter our gates, you'll never want to leave! Front gate: Overall View: The Kitchen: Stage Area & Tables The Bar Area A giddy Sea Rat looks on in glee as two drunken soldiers settle their dispute with some fisticuffs. Also, a hook makes for a great sausage utensil over the hot grill To be Licensed as a Large Artisan in Punto Sur. ____________________________________________________________ I did not plan on doing a digital build for the Oktoberfest challenge, but at the beginning of the month, I started a new job, and for my first two weeks I am training at a location a few hours from home, so I am away from my bricks. However, being away from home with nothing but work occupying my day, I have plenty of time to mess around on Stud.io, so I decided to go all in for the contest. I did my best to capture the colors and style set by @Capt Wolf in his trading post build, while incorporating both classic and modern Pirates elements. I also threw in some Oktoberfest flair (at least what Google tells me its looks like, don't hang me if its wrong ), and a variety of characters seen in the BoBS universe. I spent waaaayyyy too much time on this, but it was a blast creating the scene, and a challenge to translate some techniques to digital building. Enjoy!
  6. To celebrate the opening of the new agency in Punto Sur, Seawolf Shipping Company employees are handing out free beers for everyone. Luckily a boat with 5 more barrels just arrived. Licensed as a small commerce property
  7. Many are visiting Punto Sur this year, to drink, dance and have fun. But to keep the revelers entertained, Punto Sur inhabitants put on shows or street performances. Many shows are put on, for example this one, the tale of Captain White Feather. Crowds gather to watch the tale be told, as the makeshift ship rocks from this way to that, with cast members holding up masts and Captain White Feather steering the ship, in search of the greatest reward on all the Brick Seas...... Treasure. Although very much different, Punto Sur's Street performances all have one thing in common - they are all payed by the highest bidder to advertise their drink of choice.
  8. It's that time of year again: time to pay a visit to the Weelond Oktoberfest!

  10. Our Sea Rats built an amazingly fun game for Weelond's Oktoberfest. The rules are quite simple. Drink as much fine bruhaha beverages as you can and a bit more. Then proceed to the rat maze. Once inside the rat maze, collect all the silver coins that you can while avoiding the ghosts. It's game over if the ghost slashes you. It's fun to watch but you don't get rich watching.

  11. Oktoberfest confessional booth by Ross Fisher, on Flickr Padré Verroc, Temple of Zeus Mission, Breshaun Brother Verroc, I know you and I have had our differences - you've always been more of a carrot man, I prefer the stick - but I have a request, and I believe you're the only man who can help me. It's this damn "Oktoberfest" that's causing me concern. Drinking, debauchery, gambling, carousing, cavorting; this whole event is exactly the kind of behaviour that we came to Terra Nova to stamp out! Sure, we might expect this sort of thing from Sea Rats and Eslandolans, but I have it on good information that our own countrymen will be attending this festival. We must do what we can to reestablish the preeminence of the Faith in their hearts. I believe that a confessional booth in the town square might be an appropriate response. Let them know that the gods are always listening. I'm asking you to attend in my place since I have unfinished business here on the Île Zeus. I pray this missive finds you well. Padré François PS. Our betters require you to keep a detailed record of every confession you take, with names, transgressions and details recorded. If you pass them on to me, I will ensure they reach the right people.
  12. Well it is that time of the year again - the festivities in Weelond are in full swing!!! Schoolmaster Elliot from the 'Red School' takes some of his current pupils out into the streets to witness some of the festivities (and warn against excessive drinking....) There are many sights to see, staff from the nearby tavern deliver beverages to the revellers. A street performer from a far away land charms a deady cobra with his flute playing, a baker sells loafs of fresh bread and some Eslandolan musketeers keep order in the streets. -------- Able to be licensed as a medium property - could be either commercial or artisan... @Capt Wolf let me know which you prefer for Weelond's development!
  13. 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.

I don't think I emanated the Dutch style well enough but whatever. It used all my colourful bricks. C&C Appreciated
  14. Just playing with a modular platform that allows for various arrangements of a scene, in this case an Oktoberfest interior scene that allows for various display options. Happy Oktoberfest! Miro
