    [GoC] Northern Garrison

    [GoC] Northern Garrison Today, mayor Richard Brickford was making the trek up to one of the garrisons of the Quinnsville Fusiliers. It was located on a northern section of what is known as the Fist. Richard was going up to meet with the garrison commander. The mayor was accompanied by a few regulars that were heading up to relieve the currently stationed regulars. The men were cooking up a fine lunch of roasted fish before they would accompany the mayor back into town. Up on the roof, a roofer was replacing a few damaged shingles. Island weather can be rough on building at times. The Garrison commander was happy to see the mayor and even happier to report that everything was operating smoothly in the Northern reaches of Quinnsville. ------------------------------------- Interior pics in the spoiler! My second entry for the Redcoats Rule! GoC project. I had quite a lot of fun building this one. This is a first time for the roof design and angled building style for me. C&C are welcome and apprecieated and thanks for looking! @Bregir @Ayrlego @Captain Dee @SilentWolf
  2. Location: Quinnsville Type: Small Commercial / Troop Raising The WTC Rising Sun had arrived after a long voyage in Quinnsville to deliver it's precious cargo. But the WTC had much to do, and troops were being loaded onboard as cargo was offloaded. [/url] Madam Dogtooth supervised the work, as she prepared for her next voyage. [/url] FIN Small dock build from me raising more troops. C&C appreciated.
  3. To: Mayor Richard Brickford, Quinnsville, Cocovia @LM71Blackbird And: Governor Jonathan Cooke, King's Harbour, Cocovia @Bregir From: Cathy Derr, captaining the Narwal, port of Fatu Hiva, île d'Or 20 December 618 My dear lords, It has come to my attention that the Mayor would like to test the defences of the Large Town Quinnsville. I would like to take that challenge as my men and woman of the Derr's expeditionary light infantry and the crew of my barque Narwal are in need of some training. I can attempt a raid on your town in the coming month, with your permission of course. But I will not disclose the exact date of my arrival on your shores as to make it a better surprise. Also I will not fire life shots, my bullets and cannonballs will be replaced with yellow paint cartridges as to indicate a hit, but not make real damage. I hope you will take similar arrangements. I look forward to your reply as to agree upon the details. Fair winds, Cathy Derr, act.Capt. of the Narwal,

    [COR FB1] Dockside Roper

    Dockside Roper On a bustling section of the Quinnsville pier is the shop of one of the local ropers. Rope-maker 1 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr The two men that run the shop are never in need of customers. Rope-maker 2 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr As fast as one can make the rope, Rope-maker 3 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr someone comes in and buys it all! Rope-maker 4 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr I guess that's what you get when you make some of the finest quality rope on all of Cocovia! ------------------------------------------ A few more shots of the build: ----------------------------------------- This will be a medium Artisan for Quinnsville. Only a few more builds before Quinnsville will reach Large City Status! As always, C&C are welcome and apprecieated and thanks for looking!
  5. Name: Quinnsville Ownership: The Crown of Corrington Location: Cocovia, west of the Sea of Thieves, in Queens Bay Map: Island of Cocovia by Christian West, on Flickr Mayor: Richard Brickford (@LM71Blackbird) Trade Value: see accounts spreadsheet Town Bank: see accounts spreadsheet Who can own property in Quinnsville: Anyone Who can freebuild in Quinnsville: Anyone Description: A Island discovered as Corrington ships journeyed past the known mapped edges of the Sea of Thieves in 616, the settlement of Quinnsville was founded by the captain of one of the exploring ships, Sir Thomas Smaugton. He was Sailing under both the flag of the Empire of Corrington, as well as the MAESTRO trade company which still holds a slight presence in the settlement. Mayor Smaugton contributed to much of the town's progress, but sadly, the Pearl of Cocovia had not seen much development since the retirement and mysterious disappearance of it's beloved mayor. Fortunately, one Richard Brickford, volunteered to step in and nurse the abandoned settlement back to health. Now under his leadership Quinnsville has quickly risen to prominence on Cocovia and is a flourishing settlement on the verge of becoming a Large City.

  6. Marine Surveyor On the docks of Quinnsville's busy harbor, is the office of the marine surveyor. QV 2.1 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr They are in charge of checking the goods and state of the smaller vessels and in unison with the harbor master keep the docks running smoothly. It takes great skill to perform this job so the harbor doesn't become a complete mess! ----------------------------------- As my first build in quite some time, I just wanted to do something simple. This will be licensed as a Large Commerce in Quinnsville for December. This isn't my best or most elaborate work but, as always, C&C are welcome and apprecieated and thanks for looking!
  7. More Marching to Quinnsville The newest graduating class of the Quinnsville Military Academy are out for some drills and exercise. These 2 companies will join the 1st Quinnsville Fusiliers Company as the 2nd and 3rd Quinnsville Fusiliers companies. This will help to strengthen Quinnsville's defenses as it continues to grow into one of Corrington's premiere settlements in the New World! Troops 1 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr ------------------------------------- Just a quick MOC to go along with the recruitment of some more troops for Quinnsville. Nothing overly special but as usual, C&C are welcome and apprecieated and thanks for looking!
  8. Quinnsville Weapon Emporium Not far from the busy city square of the bustling city of Quinnsville is a gunsmith. The Quinnsville weapon emporium is known for producing the highest quality firearms and swords on all of Cocovia. Weapon Emporium 1 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr It is a small little operation with limited production but it allows for finer weapons to be forged. Out back is where the swordsmith hammers away to perfect the shape of his latest saber. Weapon Emporium 2 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Inside the shop the master gunsmith carefully works on his newest masterpiece on the workbench with his trusty dog at his side. Weapon Emporium 3 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr A marine sergeant has been sent to put in a special order for a crate of marksman rifles. The troops in Quinnsville are being trained in all of the latest military techniques and demand the best equipment. Weapon Emporium 4 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr ----------------------------------- Another real brick build! This will be a small artisan for Quinnsville. C&C are welcome and appreciated and thanks for looking! A few more angles can be seen under the spoiler:
  9. Quinnsville Lighthouse Lighthouse 1 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr With the rapid growth in Quinnsville after getting a new mayor appointed, a lighthouse was erected to help guide ships safely into the harbor. Mayor Richard Brickford is visiting the new structure and meeting the lighthouse keeper who will be responsible for keeping the flame burning. Lighthouse 2 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Lighthouse 3 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr While the Mayor strikes up a conversation with the keeper, a Corrington solider from nearby Fort Annetta unloads some supplies for the lighthouses new inhabitant. --------------------------------------- I recently went through a huge brick purge (Getting rid of everything not LEGO) and a mass organization of all by bricks. From that comes my first build for BoBs made out of real bricks! Expect more builds of this type in the future. C&C are welcome and apprecieated and thanks for looking! This will be a medium Artisan for Quinnsville. More pic from different angles in the spoiler:
  10. Class 5 Brig, "RSND Dolphin" With the construction of the new Quinnsville shipyards, the shipwrights have been rather busy! One of the shipyards most recent additions that they have produced is a lightly armed brig. Imperial brig 3 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Even though it carries only 8 guns, they are 8 rather large 32 pounders. Imperial brig 6 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr It has a small but well lit stern, thanks to its 6 lanterns. Imperial brig 4 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Imperial brig 5 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr To make up for it's small number of guns, it is stocked with plenty of weapons in case a conflict involves a boarding. Imperial brig 7 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr The Captain's quarters, is small but includes everything one might need on a short voyage. Imperial brig 8 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Thanks for checking out my ship! I built this back in January, before I even joined BotBS, but I figured it would be a nice addition to my other ships. C&C are welcome and appreciated!
  11. Quinnsville Gunboats With tensions always high on the Brick Seas with constant threats of pirate attacks, some settlements are deploying small gunboats and gun sloops to help protect local waters. Quinnsville has recently launched 3 new gunboats for the purpose of protecting their harbor. Gunboat 10 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr They were all three built differently in order to pull on strengths of different sizes and maneuverability in the heat of battle. Gunboat 4 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Gunboat 5 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr They all feature a frontward facing cannon and the rear is protected by a quick firing deck gun for extra protection. Gunboat 6 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Gunboat 7 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr The largest of the three was equipped with a sail for longer patrols in order to give the oarsmen a rest after long durations at sea. Gunboat 8 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Gunboat 9 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr ------------------------------ Here's some little class 1 and class 2 gunboats for Quinnsville. They were a new type of build for me, and I like how they turned out. C&C are welcome and apprecieated and thanks for looking!
  12. Class 7 Frigate "Marlin" Imperial Flagship 1 - red version by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Out of the Quinnsville shipyards comes a lightly armed frigate! She features a spacious gun deck and has plenty of room for troops or cargo. (OOC) Only the first picture is done in Corrington colors. The reason for that is because I originally built it for Lego Ideas and was to lazy to render another 10 pictures showing off all the angles and features. Nothing is different except for the colors and sails. Enjoy! Imperial Flagship 4 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Imperial Flagship 5 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Imperial Flagship 6 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Imperial Flagship 7 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Imperial Flagship 8 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Imperial Flagship 9 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Imperial Flagship 10 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Imperial Flagship 11 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Imperial Flagship 12 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Imperial Flagship 13 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Like I said above, I built this model for Lego Ideas, which is why the blue color scheme. It was supposed to be the ultimate Imperial Flagship. It's true colors are the Red, White, and Black though! Anyway, thanks for checking it out! C&C are welcome and appreciated! Not quite sure on the class though, she is 9 hulls long which would put her as a class 9 or 10, but she only has the lower gun deck and the top deck. If @Bregir or someone else could clarify I would be most grateful!
  13. The fishing and trading skiffs and rowboats of Quinnsville Small Fishing Boats 1 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr In the summer months when the Brick Seas are relatively calm, the Quinnsville fisherman and traders brave the waters to put food on their tables. Small Fishing Boats 2 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Some row close to shore to net the schools of fish that swim in great abundance. Small Fishing Boats 3 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Others use a rod and reel to catch fish, but occasionally get more than anticipated... Small Fishing Boats 4 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Some of the larger skiffs can travel greater distances to nearby harbors to trade cocoa and spices among other things. Small Fishing Boats 5 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr After a hard days work, the boats are dragged up onto shore and their supplies are put into elevated houses for safe keeping until they can secure a buyer or until the seas are calm enough to travel to another port. Here is a build for me to license some class 0 boats. I also have been wanting to try out some small hull designs, and I especially like how the larger skiffs turned out! C&C are welcome and appreciated! @Bregir I would like to license all 10 of these small boats. The first two boats in the second picture are just standard rowboats, but I believe I added enough to make them licensable. There are four of the larger skiffs that have sails and one without a sail. They all feature different colors, cargo, and crews so I think they classify as all different boats as well. I think I know the answer, but are they too small to be classified as class 1 boats? Lastly, the three small brick built rowboats are all different in the same way as the skiffs. I don't plan on licensing the beach portion at all.
  14. Brickford Residence QV15.1 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr After months of walking the streets of Quinnsville, Richard and Nathaniel Brickford were relived to be able to finally write their final report to Governor Cooke in King's Harbour. The stumbled up the steps to their timber-frame house before sitting down at the kitchen table. QV15.2 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr With pen in hand they began to write to Cooke about everything they had seen and observed in the months after their assignment began. QV15.3 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr QV15.4 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Their humble abode wasn't even fully unpacked with crates and boxes found everywhere. They had been too busy to worry about unpacking it. Dear Governor Cooke, When I originally arrived at the quaint Quinnsville Station of the Cocovia Wagonway I wasn't quite sure what to expect. My first stop was the Quinnsville Public Records Building. From the books it contained and the help of the clerk, I discovered some remarkable things about the settlement. I learned about the shipbuilding industry that has been established here. So, I journeyed to the Timber Plantation not far from the outskirts of town. The work that the lumberjacks perform is remarkable! After that I went to look into how the ships are actually made at one of the Largest Shipyard in Quinnsville. Continuing from there I made my way to the Pier to check into the trading situation. It was not teeming with activity, but it seems that with some small adjustments, Quinnsville could be turned into quite the trading hub. Finally I made my way through the city and noticed a certain lack of important government building such a town hall and proper schools for the children. There are also no research centers for any of the native plants of the island. What this settlement really needs is proper leadership. Sir Smaugton laid a sturdy foundation from which to build upon, and just from me being here and people hearing that I was looking into the well-being of the area, the settlement has started to grow. While I am finished this part of my task, I hope that I can still be of service to the people of Quinnsville for many years to come. In service to her Majesty, Richard Brickford, Royal Surveyor of Quinnsville Dear Captain Jno. Cooke, RN, After arriving in Quinnsville, I was pleasantly surprised by the military might of the settlement. While the rest of the settlement still needs some tending too, Quinnsville is in no danger of being overrun any time soon. Sir Smaugton must have been a clever man to set up certain measures to keep the troops in order. I first visited the Military Barracks of the 1st Quinnsville Fusiliers. The troops were in perfect order and the building was well constructed and was satisfactory in cleanliness. Following the suggestion of the Sergeant of the barracks, I traveled to the mighty Fort Annetta in Queens Bay. The fortification itself would be able to put quite a hurting on any attacking force. Back on land, I was intrigued by a commotion on the street and to my surprise there was a parade going on! After inquiring with the locals and discovering that it was a graduation ceremony of the 1st Quinnsville Dragoons of a nearby military academy. After attending a lecture of military strategy, I am even more convinced that Quinnsville will become the strongest and safest settlement in all of the New World. I have completed my assignment and will stand by in Quinnsville while awaiting further orders. In service to her Majesty, Captain Nathaniel Brickford, Military Attaché to Quinnsville ----------------------- @Bregir With this build, I have almost singlehandedly brought Quinnsville from a level 2 town up to a level 8 city. Lots of thanks to the builds done by @Drunknok, @Spud The Viking, and @Garmadon. They helped out a lot to bring up the right stats for the settlement. As usually, C&C are welcome and appreciated, thanks for looking, and more builds to come! This will be licensed as a small residence. For some bonus pics of the upstairs and cellar, check out the spoiler!
  15. Quinnsville Chronicler QV4.1 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr While on his way home for the day after observing the building process at the shipyards, Richard Brickford passed by a old looking building. The sign was well worn but he could make out the words Quinnsville Chronicler. With his interest piqued, he walked up and opened the door. QV4.2 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr When inside, he started to look around. There was a desk towards the back of the room, so Richard figured that would be a good place to start. After sifting through some papers, he realized that this was the printing house of the now non-existing newspaper of Quinnsville! He even found handwritten drafts that were penned by Sir Smauagton himself. QV4.5 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr QV4.3 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Noticing a flight of stairs, he continued up them. Upstairs were stacks of the final edition of the Quinnsville Chronicler as well as copies still on the printing presses. QV4.4 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Dear Governor Cooke, I have but one last thing to report before I submit to you my final findings. I believe that one of the reasons that Quinnsville has been a little slower in development is because they have a lack of news circulating through the settlement. If this can be rectified, I believe that the settlement will explode with growth. My final report will be in before the week is out. I think you will be most pleased with my findings. In service to her Majesty, Richard Brickford, Royal Surveyor of Quinnsville Behold, the official building for the Quinnsville chronicler! Also, the Quinnsville Chronicler will be returning to the Brick Seas! It will most likely be just as sporadic and short as the original one, but where just here to have fun anyway right? C&C are welcome and appreciated and thanks for looking! This will be licensed as a medium artisan.
  16. Military Academy QV14.1 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Shortly after watching the spectacle on the parade route, Nathaniel made his way the nearby military academy. It was built in the same style as the military barracks and looked relatively new, which was confirmed by the 617 above the large front doors. QV14.2 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Captain Brickford was just in time to listen to a lecture on military strategy. It was being given by the headmaster, who looked as if he knew exactly what he was talking about. QV14.3 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr The cadets were listening attentively to the words of the headmaster, if then didn't they would probably quickly be brought back in line. Dear Captain Jno. Cooke, RN, I have found out that a military academy has been built in Quinnsville quite recently. The very first graduating class was just last week. The building is quite nice, and from the lectures I sat in on, the cadets are being taught the latest tactics in military strategy. I have only a few stops left in my assessment of the defenses of Quinnsville, and then I will assist my father in his duties as well. Our final report on Quinnsville shouldn't be too much longer. In service to her Majesty, Captain Nathaniel Brickford, Military Attaché to Quinnsville This will be a large educational property for Quinnsville. I built it in the same style as my military barracks so I think it fits really nicely. C&C are welcome and appreciated and thanks for looking!
  17. Fort Annetta in Queens bay QV12.1 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr After a reassuring visit to the barracks of the 1st Quinnsville Fusiliers, Captain Nathaniel Brickford's next stop was the newly completed Fort Annetta. QV12.2 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Situated on a rocky island in Queens Bay, it made the perfect spot for a defensive position. It is only accessible by boat during high tide and is heavily guarded. QV12.3 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr There is a small guardhouse before the main entrance to the fort. Behind it is a favorite fishing spot for some of the stationed troops. QV12.4 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Having been recently completed, the main living area hasn't been fully completed so the men have to sleep in the main courtyard. QV12.5 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr The basement, which will be used for the main living quarters, is currently a storage area with boxes and crates of supplies to be unboxed and set up. Dear Captain Jno. Cooke, RN, I have just finished my visit to the newest defensive position in Quinnsville, Fort Annetta. Having been recently completed, the interior is still being set up, but the guns are set up and in full working order. Before too long it will be able to adequately defend the entirety of Queens Bay along with the other small forts that are nearby. I will be heading back to the military district of Quinnsville and will update you again with my finding. So far I am quite pleased with how Sir Smaugton left the fortifications of the settlement. In service to her Majesty, Captain Nathaniel Brickford, Military Attaché to Quinnsville Another build that was quite fun! For now i'm going to leave it unlicensed until further notice, but I couldn't not make a fort! C&C are welcome and apprecieated and thanks for looking!
  18. Parade Route QV13.1 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr As Captain Brickford was making his way back from Fort Annetta, he was drawn to a commotion on a sectioned off portion of road. QV13.2 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr After asking some of the bystanders what was going on, he discovered that it was a graduating parade for the 1st Quinnsville Dragoons of a nearby military academy. QV13.3 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr These new graduates would serve alongside the 1st Quinnsville Fusiliers and together keep the Pearl of Cocovia safe! Here is a large Arts & Culture for Quinnsville! I've wanted to make some Dragoons for quite some time (as with all things military!). As usual, C&C are welcome and appreciated and more builds to come!
  19. Large Shipyard QV10.1 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Continuing on his walk along pier past the jetty and storehouses, Richard Brickford stopped by the local shipyards. This large shipyard is next to the smaller but equally busy Quinnsville shipyards, but this one produces much larger ships. QV10.2 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr On the pier is a large crane that is used for hoisting the masts and cannon onto the ship. QV10.3 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Richard quickly found the foreman and asked about the shipbuilding status of Quinnsville and the overall demand for high quality ships. He was pleasantly surprised by his response and was sure that Governor Cooke would be equally pleased. Dear Governor Cooke, After my assessment of the pier and trading status I made my way to the local shipyards. They are some of the most well structured and busiest areas of Quinnsville! I interviewed the head foreman of the shipyards and found out some valuable information. As you already know, Sir Smaugton was quite the seafaring man and before his disappearance he sent up several shipyards with the purpose of building up a trading fleet, most likely under the MAESTRO flag. He commanded the infamous Junkyard Fleet, which has since been disbanded, but apparently he had bigger plans as well. Unfortunately, after his disappearance, the grand idea of a huge trading fleet disappeared as well. Now, the shipyards just try to keep up with the demand for high quality vessels. I believe that with the right guidance Quinnsville could be transformed into quite the trading hub, but only time will tell. My assessment is nearing completion, and I should have my final report shortly. In service to her Majesty, Richard Brickford, Royal Surveyor of Quinnsville
  20. Quinnsville Pier and Storehouse QV6.1 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr After his trip to the timber plantation, Richard Brickford's next stop was the local pier. He arrived just in time to greet his most trusted employee, Ralph Clutchington, who had just came into port. For it's size the pier was quite busy. Goods were being moved and deals were being struck. Only one boat was docked at this particular section of the jetty, but it was also a slow time in trade. QV6.2 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr The lone boat that was docked was piloted by an old salty sailor who demanded to be referred to as Captain, even though his ship was no bigger than a dingy. QV6.4 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr There was a large storehouse as well a clock tower on this portion of the wharf and everything was kept in order by the lone guard on duty. Dear Governor Cooke, I have looked over the trade situation in Quinnsville. While the wharfs and docks are not filled to capacity, they are still operating at about one-third of their potential. The storehouses seems relatively full for the amount of trade going on at this time. The structures themselves are in quite good condition, which can of course be attributed to Sir Smaugton's guidance. The clock tower on the wharf is in full working order and the wooden dock is free of rot. There are some peculiar people in Quinnsville though... There is one old sailor who pilots a boat barely larger than a dingy, but demands to be called Captain. No one even knows his real name... From here I will continue on to the shipyards and see what kind of ships Quinnsville is producing. In service to her Majesty, Richard Brickford, Royal Surveyor of Quinnsville Here is yet another build for Quinnsville! This one is a section of a pier, which I may expand upon in the future. Also, this is my first time adding water effects, so I hope it turned out alright. C&C are welcome and appreciated and thanks for looking and of course, more builds to come!
  21. Episode 1 Episode 2 Episode 3 Episode 4 Episode 5 (you are here) As soon as he had heard about the Red Fandago (also known as Flynn Stewart) being found, Colonel Greybeard had gathered a band of his troop with all haste and dashed of to the docks where Sergeant Salt had spotted the highwayman. Well wait a second, allow me to correct that - the first thing he did was find a cab, and then he dashed off with the troop to the docks. But unfortunately, it took so long to find a carriage that in the end not much time was saved anyhow... Be that as it may, they were just tearing up the wharf when Sergeant Salt caught sight of the Red Fandago. "We've got him, Colonel!" he exclaimed - a bit prematurely, as Colonel Greybeard thought. Flynn Stewart was darting down the dock with all haste, carrying the last of his ill-gotten gains with him. Colonel Greybeard spotted a ship's gangplank resting up against the wood, Captain Blofeld waiting for his last crewman at the top of it and ready to depart. "Oh snap! - that chap!" exclaimed the Colonel under his breath. "We must catch this rascal - coach master, faster!" The troop leapt of the carriage and raced to the dock, reaching it just after the gangplank was pulled back and the Surprise began to move. Were they too late? To be continued... A couple last pictures without the carriage: The whole build: Next installment of the storyline - keep your weather eye(s) opened for more soon! Thanks for viewing, C&C are welcome as always!
  22. Quinnsville Public Records Building QV5.2 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr As Royal Surveyor of Quinnsville, Richard figured that the first thing he should do is make a round of all the important building throughout the Town. He first stop was the Quinnsville public records building. Inside was a massive bookshelf, that held all the information about the settlement, the surrounding area, and everything that went on since it was founded. QV5.4 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Richard decided to ask the clerk about some of the history of the settlement and some points of interest that he might want to visit. Having been there for many years, the clerk was more than helpful. QV5.3 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Dear Governor Cooke, Today I visited the public records building, and my, what a splendid building it is! Sir Smaugton certainly had an eye for fine craftsmanship. How unfortunate it is that he has not been heard from in such a long time. Inside the interior was in a slight state of disorganization, (much like the settlement itself) however the clerk on duty keeps the massive bookcase filled with the history of Quinnsville in perfect order. I was able to learn much about the settlement after sitting with the clerk for several hours and have developed a plan of action for Quinnsville. I will keep you informed as I progress through the settlement. In service to her Majesty, Richard Brickford, Royal Surveyor of Quinnsville Thanks for checking out the latest build in Quinnsville! When I license the build it should bring Quinnsville from a Town up to a Large Town. More builds to come in future so stay tuned for further developments! C&C are welcome and appreciated and thanks for looking!
  23. Ship level increase build Ship increase by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr With the new shipyard that was built in Quinnsville, there would need to be more men in order to sail the ships that were being built! Long know as a seafaring town, it was no surprise that able-bodied men willing signed up aboard these new vessels. This is just a small vignette to show my personal ship level increase. Nothing overly special and I don't believe that it would qualify to be licensed build. C&C are welcome and appreciated and thanks for looking!
  24. Quinnsville Monument QV1.3 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr While Captain Nathaniel Brickford was making his way to the Military District of Quinnsville, he stumbled upon an exceptionally crafted monument. Upon closer inspection, he realized that man on display was the one-and-only Sir Thomas Smaugton, former mayor of Quinnsville. Nathaniel had heard much about Sir Smaugton and his many accomplishments. He founded Quinnsville and led the infamous Junkyard Fleet before one day retiring and suddenly disappearing. Nathaniel figured this might be something of interest to Governor Cooke, so he pulled out his paper and penned another quick note. QV1.2 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr Dear Captain Cooke, Today I stumbled upon a monument of beautiful craftsmanship. I found out that it was built to commemorate and remember Sir Thomas Smaugton, whom you know founded Quinnsville. I believe the status and relative order throughout the settlement can be attributed much to his leadership and guidance while mayor. Given time we should be able to build upon the foundation he established and build Quinnsville into a extremely prosperous city. In service to her Majesty, Captain Nathaniel Brickford, Military Attaché to Quinnsville Thanks for checking out my latest Quinnsville build! I haven't had time to work on the larger structures for Quinnsville that I wanted to yet, so I figured I'd post an in-between build. It will be licensed as a small arts & culture. C&C are welcome and appreciated! Thanks for looking!
  25. In response to official orders from Captain Jno. Cooke RN: Following the delightful festivities at the Grand Ball of King's Harbour, Colonial Governor Captain Cooke, was impressed with the gumption of Richard Brickford and decided to appoint him the Royal Surveyor of Quinnsville. To accompany and assist him, Captain Nathaniel Brickford was also dispatched as a military attaché to the settlement, to assess the state of the settlements defenses. After enjoying themselves at the wonderful celebration so graciously hosted by the Governor of the Southern Isles, Captain Brickford and his father, Richard, set out immediately for Quinnsville to fulfill their new orders. The docks of King's Harbour were bustling with activity, with so many people having arrived by ship to attend the Ball, so the Brickford's, decided that it would be a smart decision to experience the newly completed Cocovia Wagon Way that they had heard so much about. QV8.1 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr They hired a wagon to take them all the way across Cocovia to Quinnsville. They experienced quite a pleasant ride on the freshly laid tracks, with beautiful views of the flora and fauna of the island. QV8.2 by LM71Blackbird, on Flickr After their journey, they were ready and poised to survey the settlement and landscape and report their findings to back to Captain Cooke. But that would start on another day, the first order of business was to find a residence to live in while in Quinnsville! Thanks to @Bregir for the new appointment of Royal Surveyor of Quinnsville! This isn't a super large build, but I figured it would get the job done for showing my characters arriving in their new home of Quinnsville. C&C are welcome and appreciated and thanks for looking! More builds to come in the near future!
