  1. Brethren of the Brick Seas (BoBS) Intro Thread (Just looking for the Master Index?) What is it? Brethren of the Brick Seas is a role-playing building game set in the age of discovery/age of sail. It is the land of infamous pirates, brave sea-captains, bold explorers, cunning traders, and heroic soldiers, and it is open for all who wish to join! Through official challenges, minichallenges, freebuilds, the economic game system and the raiding and commerce system, every player has a role in the development of the Brick Seas and the potential to alter geopolitics, and eventualy history. The four playable factions interact, cooperate, compete and struggle for power, just like the players do, in a diverse world, where you can help explore (and exploit!) the riches of the new world. (For a quick start guide, see here) How do I sign up? To sign up, you first need to pick one of the four player factions: Sea Rats Oleon Corrington Eslandola Then you need to create your sig fig and post it in the relevant faction thread, and you are now an official member of BoBS! (For a guide on how to sign up and get started, check out the Quick Start Topic) Where do I ask questions? For general questions, lore questions, or history questions, ask in this thread. For faction specific questions, ask in the faction threads. Ask away! Background: The year is 617 AE (After Empire) and this is the dawn of the second era of colonialism. Only time will show what history will bring, but all three nations are looking to solidify their hold on their new posessions. Era I was kicked off with the discovery of lands across the Sea of Storms. For the first time in the history of the continent of Halos, new lands had been discovered. Even more shocking, the Halosians were no longer alone in the world. Once thought to be a flat plane, where monsters roamed the edges, the world is now believed by most geographers to be most certainly round. This was proven first with the discovery of Terraversa by the Mardierian explorer, Ardmond Basker. For 100 years the Mardierians have held Terraversa as a far off gateway, keeping all others out and not allowing the information of the world to the east, or New Terra, to permeate into the rest of Halos. At almost a 1000 miles from the next island in the Sea of Storms, the island remains a most crucial point on the voyage into the unknown. As time went on, other nations of the Madrice Peninsula began to search the seas for other islands and their potential riches. South of the Basker Islands, Corrington took Tiberia, an unforgiving rock just outside of the much more lucrative tropical zone. Oleon found LeBellan, the jewel of the Sea of Storms. LeBellan sits right inside the tropical zone, and produces sugar in vast quantities. 56 years ago Eslandola took possession of An Holli and An Toli, two smaller islands south of LeBellan, both sugar producing as well. Despite gaining footholds in the Sea of Storms, the other Madrician nations were unable to voyage beyond Terraversa. This all changed with the death of King Harln of Mardier, and the vast civil war that began in the country in 595 AE. Instead of looking to gain territory from Mardier’s mainland, the Eslandolans approached the Viceroy of Terraversa and paid him handsomely for permission to trade at the island. The Viscount took it further and allowed ALL nations to pay for the privilege to visit his island. Twenty years later, as the civil war continues, Terraversa has become a defacto independent state. The Viscount’s son, Miro Oldis, now runs the island, and his father’s policies live on. It is not certain if the Mardierians will reestablish their colony or not after the war, but it may be too late. In 597, intrepid Eslandolian explorer Cato Calrelli sailed east from Terraversa into the unknown. It was thought to be suicidal at the time, but he returned 70 days later with the news that he had found more of New Terra. He claimed the land for Eslandola, and soon the Kingdom of Eslandola was the leading nation in colonization. In 605, news circulated throughout the Madrice Peninsula that the Eslandolans had found gold on their island of Nellisa, and this set off a thirst for expansion and exploration never before seen. With Terraversa as a launching spot for new expeditions, Corringtonians, Oleanders, Eslandolans, along with some Garvans, Mardierans, and Carnovans made their way towards New Terra. Many found themselves unable to find supplies at Nellisa, the Eslandolans baring even some of their own from landing on the island. These vagabonds headed south, where a new isle was found, one with few resources, but great defensive harbors. Soon, the Sea Rats had a home. Angry that they had been dispossessed and had not found aid, many turned to vengeance on the Eslandolans by becoming pirates, and many of these pirates began to prey on all nations, and even their fellow pirate. Besides Terraversa, where the Atwi tribe lives, no new natives have been found yet. The islands beyond Terraversa have so far all had strange abandoned settlements upon them, and some sailors say that there is a whole new nation of people in these far waters, but no one has recorded seeing a non-Halosian or Atwi person yet. OW NORTH Series Map The first era, spanning the years 615 and 616 AE, marked a rapid expansion into newly discovered lands, in a race to maintain relevancy in the power struggle of Halos. Oleon, Eslandola, and Corrington all laid claims to a multitude of islands and invested heavily in new settlement and industries. In order to protect these new holdings, a naval arms race developed, and the merchant marines of all three nations grew rapidly. In the shadow of the immense wealth being shipped home from the colonies arose a rag tag group of opportunists, who styled themselves as a loose confederacy known as the Sea Rats, plundering, smuggling, raiding, or sometimes just living free outside the grasps of the empires. All factions await new souls to take on a role in the New World. Who will win in the end? Nobody knows, but for sure the sea will play a large role in deciding the fate of these rich new lands. She can be a cruel mistress to those who do not respect her, indeed, and the only guarantee in this world is that salt will run through your veins as you become part of the Brethren of the Brick Seas. BoBS Map February 617 by -Mike S-, on Flickr The Map: The map is a part of the storytelling mechanism. As you can see, it is not totally defined yet. This will change as time goes on. New portions of the New World (and some of the Old) will be uncovered through events, challenges, and other parts of the project. New islands will be claimed, older territories will be taken in war, and the map will stay dynamic throughout the story. Builders will have the map revealed to them over time, and they will help decide what lands are conquered. With that said, the first part of our story will take place in New Terra. Your character should probably have some feasible connection that would lead them to that region, or it may be hard to really participate in the early challenges. A baker back in Eslandola’s capitol city is probably going to have little interaction with things going on in New Terra. We will eventually have challenges that happen on the mainland, and different story events “back home,” but we are emphasizing the pirate theme and its nature primarily in the first part of this project. Once a firm piratical lore and history is established, more aspects of Enlightenment era politics, war making, and commerce will emerge.

  2. Skulltail - The Pirate Ship

    I think the Pirate Ship is a dream of everyone who was a kid in late 80s/early 90s. This was time when LEGO introduced the classic Pirates series. I remember staring for hours at set 6285 (Black Seas Barracuda). It was so awesome that for me it become an icon how pirate ship should look like. It is the reason behind why I like to build playable set-like ships instead of realistic ones. This is one of them Read more » Bigger photos and full story here: LEGO Gallery - Skulltail - The Pirate Ship Follow my new MOCs and articles at: Facebook | Flickr | Google+
  3. Pirate Instructions Help

    So, I've been looking for Custom Lego instructions lately, and I've come to the disturbing realization that there are almost no instructions for custom pirate ships. I'm looking because I want to learn some new techniques, and maybe even bricklink a model. Which leads me to my two problems. First, there's like no colonial era/pirate ship instructions on the web. Second, the ones I found didn't have parts lists. I don't mind buying instructions, but I won't if they aren't willing to tell me what I need to build them. I mean, lego is expensive, and I want to know how much I would have to spend to actually build the model. Can anyone help?
  4. [MOC] Mutiny of the Map

    Hi all. I'd just to like share my first Pirates MOC - "Mutiny of the Map". This was inspired by Nivremis' MOC of the island shown on a Lego pirates treasure map. That made me think about other possible scenarios around the treasure map... and this is what I came up with. A reason for mutiny! Mutiny of the Map 1 by Magma Xenoliths, on Flickr Closer shot of the "action". Mutiny of the Map 2 by Magma Xenoliths, on Flickr And the standard straight on shot. Mutiny of the Map 3 by Magma Xenoliths, on Flickr Thanks for looking.
  5. Tell me how you like it. C&C is always welcomed. Narrator: Sometime during the 18th century, in the Caribbean. On a dock. Seller: Are you the Quartermaster Mike Keys? Mike: Yes, what do you want? Seller: It is very, very important. (fake choughs) I have to talk to Captain Black . I, I have a real map, of a treasure. Mike: Oh really? Seller: Yes! It is hidden on a volcanic island, that’s why I’m afraid to go there. Mike: I can understand that. Seller: A, oh yes, ha ha, I’m afraid. But Captain Black and you are a couple of brave guys. I’ll sell the map to you for 500. Nah? Mike: Hey, look over to our ship. Seller: Why that? What’s up with it? Mike: You’ll notice in a moment. Just look, and go a little closer to the harbour wall. Just so, that’s good. Seller: Hmm…I can’t see anything. Mike: Now it comes. (Mike kicks the map seller into the water and grabs the map.) Seller: Argh! Black: Hey, what is going on? Did someone fall into the water? Mike: He probably stumbled or something. But look I have a treasure map! Black: What does it lead to? A chest of gold? I don't recognize any island on this map. Mike: Maybe we should take it to a cartographer. Black: let's do it. Narrator: Later.... Cartographer: this map looks incredibly fake to me. It doesn't have any color to it at tall. Black: Well thank you. (walks out) I think he's lying Mike: Yeah he looks shifty to Me. Narrator: later, at the soldier's tavern Cartographer: lieutenant? Brickington: yes? What do you want? Cartographer: I have a map. Brickington: Where and what does it lead to? And how did you get it? Cartographer: I redrew it from a map some pirates had. Brickington: What pirates? Redbeard? Iron-hook? Foul? Cartographer: Black. Brickington: Oh him. (sigh) well, I guess it's a bit ahead of their time anyway. Who were the other pirates? Cartographer: Well there was only one, he was the Quartermaster. His name was um Mike uh Mike Keys Brickington: give me that. (Gives him the map) And here is some coins for your trouble. Cartographer: Thank you Sir. Narrator: Later, on the ship. Black: Quartermaster! Mike: Aye aye! Black: Do you remember who I told you sold us this ship? Mike: Yes, I think it was Captain Redbeard. Why would you ask? Black: I.... Lookout: Ships ahoy! Black: Who is it? Lookout: Looks like it's Brickington on the Sea Parrot and a small naval ship. Black: Sound like it will be a fair fight. Brickington: Sargent White, get me my speaking trumpet. White: Here you go sir. (speaks into speaking trumpet) Brickington:(clears throat) I, Lt. Brickington command all of you pirates too give yourself up or face extreme punishment. Black: No. Brickington: Then we will need to use abrasive actions, fire the signal! Soldier: Yes sir. (fires) Narrator: several ships come from a bay. Black: Hoist the sails! All hands on deck! Raise the anchor! Narrator: What will happen to our "Heros" next? find out in the next exiting post!
  6. Brethren of the Brick Seas (BoBS) Introduction and Starting Thread (Just looking for the Master Index?) What is it? The simple answer is that it is a building community on Eurobricks that is open to all who wish to join. We tell stories about a maritime-oriented world where the technology level is parallel with the historical Age of Sail. There are currently four factions. Each member joins a faction, and builds to win points (Gold doubloons and influence points) for their faction, themselves, and to better their building skills. At any given time of the year there may be one or more building challenges in which a builder may win recognition and sometimes prizes for themselves. On top of this, there is also a game mechanic that allows players to earn more gold and power for themselves and their faction. Background: The year is 615 AE (After Empire) and this is the dawn of a new era. For the first time in the history of the continent of Halos, new lands have been discovered. Even more shocking, the Halosians are not alone in the world. Once thought to be a flat plane, where monsters roamed the edges, the world is now believed by most geographers to be most certainly round. This was proven first with the discovery of Terraversa by the Mardierian explorer, Ardmond Basker. For 100 years the Mardierians have held Terraversa as a far off gateway, keeping all others out and not allowing the information of the world to the east, or New Terra, to permeate into the rest of Halos.

The islands beyond Terraversa have so far all had strange abandoned settlements upon them, and some sailors say that there is a whole new nation of people in these far waters, but no one has recorded seeing a non-Halosian or Atwi person yet. OW NORTH Series Map This brings us to the present. Oleon and Corrington have both issued rewards for the first permanent settlement “Beyond the Line” (beyond Terraversa). They are willing to bring their navies to New Terra if they only have a settlement to resupply at. Eslandola is calling for its own people to venture into the unknown and find wealth and fortune in the its name. But the Sea Rats lurk in all the waters of New Terra, waiting for opportunity, and despite the world seeming more round than ever, some say those old sea monsters still exist in the uncharted lands of the East. All factions await new souls to take on a role in the New World. Who will win in the end? Nobody knows, but for sure the sea will play a large role in deciding the fate of these rich new lands. She can be a cruel mistress to those who do not respect her, indeed, and the only guarantee in this world is that salt will run through your veins as you become part of the Brethren of the Brick Seas. The Crossing Series Mapd How this works: Builders pick a faction - this is your faction until the next “open period,” so make sure to pick a character you like. You will be able to change factions with enough personal influence points (PIPs), but that take a while. Your builds do not have to display your signature figure, but we encourage it! You also may build MOCs in other faction’s territory, so building is not limited to one style. There will be an “Era” of story and challenges, which will end with winners being determined in a few different categories. The contests and stories told during an era will influence the map, the history of the world, and future challenges. When a era is completed, points will be reset, but Factions and builders will keep their “gold doubloons.” (DBs) Builders and factions alike seek fortune. This project setting revolves around two currencies that are earned by building and winning competitions. This is the economy of the project. We understand that not every builder will want to play this game, and a builder can opt out of playing altogether, or only participating in the game when they choose. Free Builds that enhance the community’s story are always welcome. Even if a builder opts out of playing the "Economic Game System" (EGS), their freebuilds will earn their faction Doubloons and Factions Influence Points. Please see the rules thread for more details on how the economy works. Factions: The Kingdom of Eslandola STATUS: Open for new members SCORE: 0 DBs | 0 FIPs The Empire of Corrington STATUS: Open for new members SCORE: 0 DBs | 0 FIPs The Empire of Oleon STATUS: Open for new members SCORE: 0 DBs | 0 FIPs The Sea Rats STATUS: Open for new members SCORE: 0 DBs | 0 FIPs What you need to do now: Take a look at the faction threads. Pick a side and sign up in the faction thread with your signature figure (sig fig). It helps to have a back story! Can I have more than one character? Yes! Although one should be your sig fig and your main character, you can have as many other characters as you wish. The world needs populated after all! A starting challenge: This is open to everyone to complete once, and 25DBs will be awarded to the builder for completing the task. Build your sig fig and place them in a setting in our world. It can be in the colonies, in the motherland, at sea, anything you would like, but make sure to show the figure clearly and demonstrate the profession you have chosen for them in some way. (IE: if you decided to play an explorer, maybe you will place them on the bow of a ship looking out to sea with a spy glass.) Any profession that existed during the enlightenment is fine, along with a few other professions that would be a reasonable fit. If you are playing in the EGS, then there are a few character traits that you may want to consider here. How are scores kept? Each month, a pinned thread will help us keep score. After you complete a build (which should have its own thread, no matter if it is a free build, a duel, or a challenge build) you need to post in this score keeping thread and use a leadership-supplied link to a webform to help us keep score. In the thread, post your name, faction, and a link to your build (and the challenge it belongs to) in the thread. Please only use one post per topic, and just edit the thread when you build something else. At the end of the month, a project leader will tally up the scores and update the “Hall of Fame and Score” post for each faction. Please be patient for updates, we are not being paid for this. Scores will be displayed as follows: Name: DBs, PIPs, (PIPs achieved this cycle) IE: Skaforhire: 5DB, 5PIPs, (2PIPs) Current faction score is kept by adding all member’s totals within the parenthesis minus any expenditures the faction has made during the cycle. What can be bought with points and doubloons? A lot. The list will grow over time with more specifics, but since we are just launching this project, here are some of the examples without specific details: DBs: Position within trading guilds, rank in certain factions, a letter of marque to join another factions war against a third faction, a licence to sail a vessel in the raiding action, gamble, etc… FIPs: A newly discovered island, win a war between factions, buy DBs for the total score, open up a new portion of the map just for your faction for a few months, etc… The Map: The map is a part of the storytelling mechanism. As you can see, it is not totally defined yet. This will change as time goes on. New portions of the New World (and some of the Old) will be uncovered through events, challenges, and other parts of the project. New islands will be claimed, older territories will be taken in war, and the map will stay dynamic throughout the story.

  7. Got these pictures from the Lego .com's 20th anniversary site last year., which sadly does not exist any more. I managed to get the Wild Western, Time Cruisers, Explorians, Pirates, Technic, Castle, 9v Train, Aqua Zone, and Free Style ones. Took me a while due to having to play a game to get all 9 one at a time, with several repeats! Links to the bigger pictures at my Flickr are in the links below. Red Alert! It's a Aquasharks' Spy Shark (6135)! Incoming Dark Forest Bandit Ambush (number 6024)! I honestly don't know what it is, but it seems like something from the Freestyle theme. Watch out for Volcano Island! (Pirates 6248) Explorien Starship (set number 6982) sets off toward the vast unknown! This model depicted here is Technic set 8628, 3-in-1 car. Time Cruisers, featuring Dr. Cyber and Timmy in the Hypno Cruiser / Navigator (6942 / 1853)! Classic 9v trains and town sets, too many to count! Sheriff's Lockup at Gold City Junction at high noon or else! (sets 6755 and 6765) These pictures are all from 1996, the year Lego .com opened for business, and are not mine at all... I just thought you guys might like it!

  9. Windmill Heist

    After all my castle builds for the Middle Earth LEGO Olympics, I decided to take a little break from the theme and do a little more with some good old Pirates. The windmill was quite fun to make, especially the windows. Pirates need food too, so when they spotted a small windmill located near the coast, a few were sent to loot it for flour. However, one of the imperial soldiers stationed in the nearby village caught sight of the thieves, and proceeded to chase them back from whence they came. Albeit, somewhat more heavily loaded with the bags of grain they had pilfered. More pictures on Brickbuilt. Thanks for looking, C&C welcome

  11. Bilge Punk Pirate Mech

    Something I created last night in the studio. Honestly, I wanted to make a gritty, steam-punk inspired airship, mixing pieces parts from the Ninjago: Skybound 70603 Raid Zeppelin, 70601 Sky Shark, and Day of the departed 70592 Salvage M.E.C. All that I got from that was another pile of bricks. Also, a pilotable mech suit for Pirates. My inspiration was the Skeleton Mech that came with Ronin's Salvage M.E.C. Honestly, I wanted to make a diving suit for my LEGO CMF Series 8 Diver. After putting it together and taking it apart and rearranging the pieces so many times, I ultimately converted the Diving suit into a fully weaponized battle suit for the Brickbeard Pirates. Looking at the build, it looks like an extremely scaled down version of Kai's 70721 Fire Mech. Another source of inspiration, is Captain Metalbeard from the LEGO Movie. By far my favorite character, and set, from the entire thing. (I have made heavy modifications to stock Metalbeard from 70807 Metalbeard's Duel, as well as build from scratch with instructions, An Evil Robot variation of Metalbeard I've come to call Steelbeard. The foot on the left leg is the only thing I dislike about the entire build. It seems flimsy as it is supporting the entire thing, and consists of two bricks. I do like the grating on the angle piece, to make it look like a boot tread though. The major difference between this Moc, and traditional Steam Punk, is that this is more in line with the golden age of Piracy. Ergo, in lieu of a Steam Boiler, this battlesuit is fueled by Rum, grog, or anything else foul smelling that can burn in a boiler. Bilge Punk, if you would prefer to call it anything.
  12. The shipwreck bay is a small portion of rockier coastline on the nothern shore of Sea Turtle Island. Many an unfortunate ship ran aground, not seeingthe deadly riff by flow. The falling tide reveals what's left of the once proud vessels. Nonetheless the Sea Rats found good use for them, refitting some of the shipwrecks for hideouts.

This inspiration came from one of my favorites series.. Black sails!!! :D And because i didn't like the end of Vane.. I decide to change it a little bit!! And the story starts..: Year: 1715 Place: Nassau Mission: Free Vane and burn Nassau to the ground! Vane is shuttled to the town square of Nassau where he will be executed. Bones and those loyal to him join the crowd, intent on a desperate rescue attempt. However, Vane makes eye contact with Billy and gives him a silent order to stand down.. But Captain Flint has a different opinion than the movie series.. Free Vane and kill them all!!! Nassau it's ours again!!! I hoped you like my creation! C&C are welcome!! :D
  16. Pirates vs EITC

    SPOILER ALERT FROM PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN AT WORLDS END!!!!!! Of course, many of us have watched "Pirates of the Caribbean At Worlds End". BUT, what would have happened if the EITC, lord cutler Beckett's flag ship, would have opened fired on the black pearl and the flying Dutchman with its massive 100 cannons, 50 on each side? Would the two pirate ships survive? Or, would it be a replay, before pirates of the Caribbean dead men tell no tales?

This is also the first adult MOC for which I have bought "my own" bricks, rather than relying on whatever (admittedly copious) odds and ends my sons had lying around at a given moment. Anyway, my creation is a fully-rigged minifig-scale (1:38.4) historical LEGO model of the 6th-rate frigate HMS Enterprize (also spelled as Enterprise), launched in 1774. I know that class is a bit "over-exposed," but the size was right (the end result is 5 feet long bowsprit to boom, just possible for me to lift), the plans were readily available on the web, and it's a lovely ship. My intent with it was to meld model and toy--it has a lot of working features and internal play spaces. In this post I'm basically just going to focus on some of my favorite pictures, rather than bogging down in a lot of text. But if you are interested there is more to see: - I have a ton of pictures on Flickr with info in many of the descriptions: https://www.flickr.com/photos/136587164@N02/collections/72157664502401642/ - I have a MOCPages page with more info: http://www.moc-pages.com/moc.php/426851 Also, I'm happy to answer any questions here. And if there are picture angles or subjects that I neglected, let me know and I will snap them while I still have my photo setup in place. I hope you will like my product, it's been about 8 months of work. Throughout that process, seeing what is being done on the Pirates board here has been a big source of encouragement!

While many Sea Rats had hired their services out to Mardier in their war against Eslandola, the faction as a whole remained swayed by dubloons, not politics. One such crew had been hired by one Sir Blake, an Eslandolian entrepreneur with grand designs for controlling the seas most feared beasts. He had the ship set sail for open waters, many leagues from the nearest island. Sir Blake had studied the effects of music upon animals and was convinced that he could summon and control a fearsome creature from the depths of the ocean the likes of which had only before been seen in nightmares. He began to play the organ and waited while the reverberations sank deep into the sea. After some time of playing he heard the cry go out "Sea beast spotted captain!" He rushed on deck and boasted proudly, "Now we shall watch as the beast attacks Eslandola's foes!" However, his boast was empty. Rather than command this creature, all Sir Blake had done was awaken and anger it. Following the source of the disturbance, the kraken proceeded to destroy the nuisance. Stunned by his failure, all Sir Blake could do was watch in terror as the crew hopeless tried to fight off the beast.
  23. [MOC] Bluecoat Ship

    Hi everyone, it is long overdue but I finally got around to constructing the Bluecoat ship we never got in the 2015 Pirates wave. I have been working on this on and off since The Brick Bounty was released but time/money restraints were holding me back for a while. This ship was created using a hybrid design of both The Brick Bounty and Brickbeards Bounty as I wanted it to look like an official Lego set. After many Bricks & Pieces orders and a few Bricklink orders, I present to you my Bluecoats new home.
  24. The Building Ships for BoBS topic can be found here The General Master Index of BoBS can be found here The list of factionleaders can be found here Interested in seeing some of these ships in real life? Check out when the next BoBS lay-out is planned here! - Foreword First of all, enjoy this index, BUT DO NOT USE IT TO BUMP TOPICS where the last comment was posted 1 month ago!!! Making indexes is very time consuming, so please do not panic if your ship can't be found in this index! You may always send me a PM when it appears your ship is not in the list, but has been posted for longer than 1 week. A ship is always made by someone. But as ships can have different owners over the time due the MCRA system, there is also the "Owner EB name" where the current owner is stated. The ship can have a different status since last time you checked the INDEX. Some examples: (the status can be found next to "licenced/unlicenced" Active: this ship roams the Seven Brickseas Inactive: it has been a while since someone saw it (meaning mostly the owner became inactive) Destroyed: destroyed in a MCRA action without a renewed licence Sistership "original name": the original ship has been destroyed and a sister ship is made. For Sale: the owner wants to sell the ship, you should pm the owner if interested. [*]All ships that appear somewhere in BoBs can be found in this list. Also the ships made by someone belonging to another faction for a certain faction. These ships are ofcourse unlicenced and they may be for sale (see status). In the Faction Index, they will appear under "Unlicenced Vessels" and are added to the "Royal Fleet". [*]The Official Lego Sets are also included in this index as they are for some people a source of inspiration. Those ships can never be licenced by a member, only by a faction, but they can be used to depict heroic naval battle scenes. - INDEX Foreword Class 0 to Class 2 vessels Class 3 to Class 5 vessels Class 5+ vessels Faction PC Vessel index: Corrington & Eslandola Faction PC Vessel index: Oleon & Sea Rats Faction NPC Vessel Index Vessels for Sale Index Naval Flag Index Sails, Rigging & Masts Index Saved for expansion Building Ships Topic Master Index of BoBS BoBS on Lego Fan Events (your chance to see those ships in real life!) - The ship types - LAST EDIT: 1 May: completely updated 19 May: the KPA 4 - results are updated in the Faction ship index. Ships build or licenced in May are not yet included. KPA results are not edited in the Ship Index. - Sails, Rigging & Masts Index to be updated further, if someone wants to make it his responsibility to maintain this Sails, Rigging & Masts index, please contact me through PM
  25. BoBS History and Background Thread On this thread you will find articles that relate to the history and background of the world that Brethren of the Brick Seas takes place in. Index: Madrice Peninsula (Where Corrington, Eslandola, and Oleon are located) Brief History of the Madrice Peninsula Jameis Farstrider's Guide to the Madrice Peninsula Religions of Oleon and most of the Madrice Peninsula Wars of the Madrice Peninsula Halos: Religions of Halos The Middle Empires New Terra: Journals of Cato Calrelli The Founding of Bastion and the Original Articles of the Pirate's Court. Maps: Madrice Peninsula and much of Halos (This post) The Crossing General Background of Brethren of the Brick Seas The year is 615 AE and this is the dawn of a new era. For the first time in the history of the continent of Halos, new lands have been discovered. Even more shocking, the Halosians are not alone in the world. Once thought to be a flat plane, where monsters roamed the edges, the world is now believed by most geographers to be most certainly round. This was proven first with the discovery of Terraversa by the Mardierian explorer, Ardmond Basker. For 100 years the Mardierians have held Terraversa as a far off gateway, keeping all others out and not allowing the information of the world to the east, or New Terra, to permeate into the rest of Halos. At almost a 1000 miles from the next island in the Sea of Storms, the island remains a most crucial point on the voyage into the unknown. As time went on, other nations of the Madrice Peninsula began to search the seas for other islands and their potential riches. South of the Basker Islands, Corrington took Tiberia, an unforgiving rock just outside of the much more lucrative tropical zone. Oleon found LeBellan, the jewel of the Sea of Storms. LeBellan sits right inside the tropical zone, and produces sugar in vast quantities. 56 years ago Eslandola took possession of An Holli and An Toli, two smaller islands south of LeBellan, both sugar producing as well. Despite gaining footholds in the Sea of Storms, the other Madrician nations were unable to voyage beyond Terraversa. This all changed with the death of King Harln of Mardier, and the vast civil war that began in the country in 595 AE. Instead of looking to gain territory from Mardier’s mainland, the Eslandolans approached the Viceroy of Terraversa and paid him handsomely for permission to trade at the island. The Viscount took it further and allowed ALL nations to pay for the privilege to visit his island. Twenty years later, as the civil war continues, Terraversa has become a defacto independent state. The Viscount’s son, Miro Oldis, now runs the island, and his father’s policies live on. It is not certain if the Mardierians will reestablish their colony or not after the war, but it may be too late. In 597, intrepid Eslandolian explorer Cato Calrelli sailed east from Terraversa into the unknown. Thought to be suicidal at the time, the voyage ended 70 days later when he returned with the news that he had found more of New Terra. He claimed the land for Eslandola, and soon the Kingdom of Eslandola was the leading nation in colonization. In 605, news circulated throughout the Madrice Peninsula that the Eslandolans had found gold on their island of Nellisa, and this set off a thirst for expansion and exploration never before seen. With Terraversa as a launching spot for new expeditions, Corringtonians, Oleanders, Eslandolans, along with some Garvans, Mardierans, and Carnovans made their way towards New Terra. Many found themselves unable to find supplies at Nellisa, the Eslandolans baring even some of their own from landing on the island. These vagabonds headed south, where a new isle was found, one with few resources, but great defensive harbors. Soon, the Sea Rats had a home. Angry that they had been dispossessed and had not found aid, many turned to vengeance on the Eslandolans by becoming pirates, and many of these pirates began to prey on all nations, and even their fellow pirate. Besides Terraversa, where the Atwi tribe lives, no new natives have been found yet. The islands beyond Terraversa have so far all had strange abandoned settlements upon them, and some sailors say that there is a whole new nation of people in these far waters, but no one has recorded seeing a non-Halosian or Atwi person yet. This brings us to the present. Oleon and Corrington have both issued rewards for the first permanent settlement “Beyond the Line” (beyond Terraversa). They are willing to bring their navies to New Terra if they only have a settlement to resupply at. Eslandola is calling for its own people to venture into the unknown and find wealth and fortune in the name of Eslandola. But the Sea Rats lurk in all the waters of New Terra, waiting for opportunity, and despite the world seeming more round than ever, some say those old sea monsters still exist in the uncharted lands of the East.
