In the streets of Terreli, just outside the Terreli Tell-All, a commotion has startled two Eslandian soldiers. "And if we see you again, you will find that the Tell-All does not easily forget" a large man shouted at the figure lying before him. "How could you?!... This will not stand, least of all in Terreli, the capital of the greatest merchant nation ever to have existed!" As the battered man scuttled away, the driver of the carriage asked for explanation. "The culprit snuck in free advertisements for that scrupulous Corlander trade company, the WTC... Pure propaganda!" Soldiers and driver alike nodded as if nothing could be more natural than someone being roughly expedited into the streets for not following the rules of acquisition general Eslandian principles of profit. A small artisan for Terreli. @Mesabi managed to sneak so much WTC propaganda into the Terreli Tell-All a reaction had to posted... ;) I will keep a closer watch next time! :P
Having arrived in Terelli, Governor Guilder was disturbed by the mood on the streets. In some places you could find people quietly bemoaning the actions of the king and worried about the prospect of war with Oleon, but they dared not speak too openly for fear of royal reprisals. Meanwhile, in other sections of the city, hooligans were ready to denounce (or worse!) anything remotely Oleanderish. The hooliganism was troubling to Guilder; patriotism and loyalty to the king was one thing, but these were mere thugs looking for an excuse to cause trouble, while good men dared not speak. Law and order was breaking down right under the king’s nose! Guilder decided his first stop must be the MCTC headquarters. He had been unable to contact Guy Wyndzon before he left Weelond; Guilder hoped that he could discover the whereabouts of the Secretary of State (or even his uncle!) before heading to the palace. As Guilder approached the entrance to MCTC HQ, a marble building that that still managed to understate its importance to Eslandola, a distraught woman in blue was just leaving. “Oh, Governor Guilder!” exclaimed the woman in an Oleander accent. “Perhaps you can help me.” Guilder knew the face, and quickly tried to remember her name. “Ah, you’re the friend of Thaddeus Calvo, are you not? It was lovely to see you at the opening of my new residence back in May.” Then he recalled her name. “What are you doing here, Madame Villeneuve?” “I was looking for Thaddeus, but he is not here … as I expected. He’s always off adventuring. I had hoped someone at the MCTC could help me in his stead, but I have had no luck.” “Dear, what can I do for you?” “The politics of recent days have become quite difficult to bear for someone like me. I have been afraid to venture out of my room much at all. I had hoped to find passage back to Breshaun, but it appears no ships from Terelli are being allowed to leave for Oleander ports. I am afraid of what might happen to me here.” “I understand your concern, Madame. I have seen the hooligans in the street. It is a shame, and the reason I am here in Terelli is to make sure this war does not come to pass. Once my business is done here, I can transport you to Breshaun personally on my ship.” “You are very generous, governor. Thank you! But what can I do in the meantime?” “You can stay in quarters here at MCTC headquarters as my guest until I am ready to depart.” Guilder turned to one of his bodyguards. “My musketeer will escort you to retrieve your things and bring you back here safely, and will serve as your bodyguard until our departure. Will that be adequate, madame?” “Oui, most certainly!” “And I will pass word when I can to Thaddeus to let him know you are safe. If he knows you are here, I’m certain he is worried for you as well.” “Merci.” * * * * * * And here's the full build: I built this earlier this year, and it has appeared as a background in another post, but this was the perfect opportunity to use it again, and I wanted to show the whole thing this time. If I were building the HQ from scratch now, I'd work in a little more color and a little more detail, as the detail that is there doesn't show up well in white. But I'm still happy with the build. As always, all C & C welcome.
