  1. Drunknok

    [AMRCA Drunknok]

    INDEX Summary Prelude Chapter I - An unexpected diversion Chapter II - This is no moon island =============== SUMMARY Status: Chapter II - This is no moon island Participating members Drunknok Participating vessels Cranky Parrot Point of start: Elizabethville Characters WTC Operator Aryana "Pip" Irving Gunnery Sergeant Gerard "Old One Eye" Wilton and his "Black Squad" of the WTC Marines Captain Cassidy Riley and the crew of the "Cranky Parrot" Herwest Thaum Troops 1 Platoon (10 WTC Marines) ========================================== Dramatis personae:
  2. Name: Mesabi Landing Ownership: Wayfarer Trading Company , via the Crown of Corrington Location: Argentia, East Prio Sea Map: Mayor: Count Mesabi . Trade Value: see accounts spreedsheet Town Bank: see accounts spreedsheet Who can own property in Mesabi Landing: Anyone Who can freebuild in Mesabi Landing: Anyone Description: Pax Corlandia was a dangerous incident for all sides involved. With the Corrish occupation of Nova Malto, battle lines were drawn, and names were made. One of these names was Captain Mesabi, who was annointed Count for his bravery (or lunacy?) during the incident. After the whole Nova Malto incident, the Corrington Colonial Council decided to do something to about the troublesome - now Count - Mesabi. The solution was simple: send him to a faraway island. Isle 14, AKA Keep-Yer-Boots-On, AKA Argentia, was decidedly the right place. Littered with waste from passing ships, cacti, crabs with hats, and mysterious plants, Argentia is perhaps the most depressing of the Islands of the Prio Sea - and a perfect place to keep Mesabi from causing more trouble. Undeterred, Count Mesabi established a settlement on the barren island, naming it after himself. Newly ennobled, he seeks to make the settlement the greatest in the Prio seas, at all costs. The settlement has grown quickly, becoming a haven for exiles, outlaws, and traders from all known (and sometimes unknown) nations. The WTC unofficially controls the town, despite the protests of the Crown. However, the settlement remains a rough place, and at the same time an eldorado for those looking for adventures, glory - and profits.

Former Corrington soldiers who turned to villainy. Kinda like us actually. Anyways they're lead by Big Hat Barry. They have a basecamp on one of the islands in zone 35. Here's a convenient list!

Mesabi Landing AMCRA by North White, on Flickr "Yes Ma'm!" They said in unison. FIN C&C appreciated. This will be licensed as a commercial by Mesabi Landing, and I plan to use it as Agnes's office for the future. Yes, it's a modified version of the Dr. Strange Set. So, it probably looks better than most of my regular builds.

And Zeus's great Eagle tore the liver from man's benefactor every morning, so he would spend every day in agony."

"But Prometheus would have his revenge."

"It will be Icarus, rising from a watery grave, here to help fight for death of the Gods." Revoloutionary Chapter by North White, on Flickr "There's a phrase we use, 'Icarus Returning, longs for the Deep Places,' to remind us of our cause. But in the meantime, we mostly cause chaos."

  9. Location: Mesabi Landing Type: Royal Factory A wagon rumbled along the tracks towards the largest building in Mesabi Landing, the royal shipyard. The royal shipyard by North White, on Flickr The structure was massive, and was built into the harbour, for immediate ship launch. The royal shipyard by North White, on Flickr The designers, architects, and engineers carefully studied the designs, before relaying the information to the grunts for execution. The royal shipyard by North White, on Flickr Today, 2 ships were under construction, the WTC Robin and the WTC Blue Moon.

The royal shipyard by North White, on Flickr It slid down the rails into the water. The royal shipyard by North White, on Flickr And with that, the WTC had another ship. The royal shipyard by North White, on Flickr FIN Thanks for viewing this massive build I did. The hard part wasn't building it, but photographing it in my tiny room was damn near impossible. I'd like to license this as a royal factory for the WTC. As this requires a charter, I hereby apply for it. I hope that this build meets the requirements for a royal build. The footprint is 96x96, which is lower than the 100x100 requirement, but I feel this is a little arbitrary, and hope leadership would agree. If you would like it to be 100x100, I can add a 32x32 section to the factory. As for the quality, I have put my best foot forward with the pieces I have, and I hope leadership would allow for this to be considered of royal quality. If it is not, well, I'll just license 3 large factories this month. C&C appreciated, as usual.

Soon, the WTC Icarus Returning had left Poorvintia. The two watched the settlement disappear over the horizon. Escape from poorvintia by North White, on Flickr "Loti Junks facing Carnivorian warships. Who do you suppose attacked first?" Asked Maria "A question for the ages, but that is not our business. Our business is to make sure they do not claim the entire region for their own." replied Luca "Another task for the WTC." Said Maria.

I really had fun with this build, and it was nice to show all the vehicles on a street, even though half of them are from London Escape. C&C appreciated
  13. Location: Mesabi Landing Type: Large Factory Argentia, while mostly dry and baron, was home to a small lake on the north side of the Island.

His hands shaking with rage, he picked up a chair The Reckoning Chapter 1 by North White, on Flickr "They exhile me to this godforsaken isle, and then cut my throat!" The Reckoning Chapter 1 by North White, on Flickr "Oh, but there will be a reckoning. A reckoning indeed. And a reckoning cannot be postponed indefinitely." He walked to a crate. The Reckoning Chapter 1 by North White, on Flickr He drew a pistol, exhamined it and smiled. The Reckoning Chapter 1 by North White, on Flickr "A reckoning cannot be postponed indefinitely..." he repeated. FIN Thank you for viewing my build! This marks the beginning of a new story I would like to tell. If @Bregir doesn't stop me. I tried to use some new techniques in this build, especially with the windows. I also finally got some slopes to use. Thank you to @Lord Buckethead for his railroad idea. Not only is it a great idea, it will be featured in my builds, as it gives me an excuse to use my rail pieces. Additionally, this build finally makes Mesabi Landing a City. Corrington is up to 4 now! Final note: Dr. Vesper is NOT to be associated with the WTC. He is not, and will not be a member of the WTC. Do not take out any of his IC actions against my trading company! C&C appreciated!
  21. "You did WHAT?!?" Fletcher bellowed in his best quarterdeck voice, more suited to convey orders to the foretop of a 74 than for inter-office communication. Passers-by benefited from this due to an open window, but no one seemed inclined to mention it to the rear-admiral. The clerk to which the "question" was addressed hesitated for a moment, unsure if the question was rhetorical, prompting Fletcher to interject "Answer me, man!" "I... I... erhm... processed the WTC's application for a trade company charter..." he stuttered. "And then?" "...and then I sent it to Countess Mesabi of the WTC, and despatched a copy for the Royal Archives.... making it.... official... policy..." he answered, seeming to grow smaller and smaller under the gaze of the admiral. Those deep, commanding eyes under the thick bushy brows had subdued many a post-captain in his day, and a flimsy bureaucrat posed little challenge for them. "Should I... recall it? It will be complicated... and, erhm..." he continued. "Did you see the report from Mesabi Landing? It seems the WTC has managed to attract enough settlers to grow Mesabi Landing to a city." "Yes, yes, I know! Quite impressive, I must admit..." Fletcher said dismissively. "We shall do nothing about the charter. For now! But should they be caught plundering and looting again, I want that charter revoked faster than you can spell 'Corrington'. Am I making myself clear, mr. Grant?" "Yes sir, very much, sir." To himself he muttered "I sure hope you can spell..." _____________________________________________ A little build to acknowledge Mesabi Landing becoming a city and granting the WTC a charter. Will license it as a small cultural build. C&C welcome.
  22. Location: Mesabi Landing Type: Medium Educational Mesabi Landing was booming, and Mordo had much to do. Today he walked to a new Business, the Karst Geographers. Karst geographical by North White, on Flickr He entered the building to find one of the Geographers sitting at a desk, penning a letter. Karst geographical by North White, on Flickr "Mr. Mordo! We have the work you've commissioned! Come see!" Said the Geographer "Excellent, Agnes will be most pleased we can gaze upon our fine city." Said Mordo. Karst geographical by North White, on Flickr They all walked over to a table where maps lay spread out. The Second Geographer pulled out a map and showed to Mordo. Mesabi Landing Map by North White, on Flickr "I must say gentlemen, I'm Impressed!" FIN Karst Geographical is now accepting commissions! Any mayor or civil servant can request a map of their settlement for the price of 100 Dbs! Corlanders served without charge! Simply PM Me @Mesabi Thanks for viewing my newest build. I really tried to do something different with the roof this time, and also tried to detail the outside. environment. I'm not sure if this can be counted as an educational, I felt maps were knowledgey, but if leadership disagrees, let me know. I won't license this for a few days. I didn't put much story, as this is mostly to display my new map of Mesabi Landing, but I will get back into regular silliness soon. C&C appreciated!
  23. Location: King's Harbour Type: Small Cultural (Government office) Governor Cooke sat in his office reading his mail. There was a knock on his door, and a soldier entered. The request by North White, on Flickr "There's a Lady Mesabi here to see you sir." the soldier said. "Curious, send her in." He replied. Countess Mesabi entered holding an envelope. The request by North White, on Flickr "Good afternoon, Governor Cooke. As acting Chair of the Wayfarer Trading Corporation, I'd like to formally present to you our request." She said cautiously, and handed him the envelope. "Very well, Madam." he said, equally cautious. The request by North White, on Flickr He opened the Envelope, and began to read. The request by North White, on Flickr "So, Governor Cooke, What say you?" She asked. FIN Just a small build requesting the licensing status for the WTC. Sorry @Bregir, I had like none of the parts you showed me for Cooke. King's Harbour is free to license this, I'll be concentrating my efforts in Mesabi Landing this month. C&C appreciated, and I look forward to hearing from you @Bregir as to the WTC's Status!
  24. Location: Mesabi Landing Type: Medium Commercial "I can't believe he's late again." Said Pete Zanzibar It's 12:00, and he's still not here. "You haven't gotten to know him." Said Sally. WTC sales division by North White, on Flickr Joseph Zumbro strolled leisurely down the path to the Sales Division Building No. 3. WTC sales division by North White, on Flickr He opened the door and walked in. WTC sales division by North White, on Flickr "You're late again Mr. Zumbro!" Said Karren, the secretary, her face a mess of makeup, as usual. "Well, I had to get over this hangover!" He said with a smirk. "Also it's not like we're doing anything important today!" "Mr. Zumbro, we have a mission briefing!" She said in a concerned voice. "Exactly, nothing important!" He left her desk and walked over to Pete. WTC sales division by North White, on Flickr "Mr. Zumbro, I can't believe you're late again. Do you know how unprof-" Mr. Zumbro cut Pete off. WTC sales division by North White, on Flickr "You know who my aunt is. Besides, do you really care enough to do something about it? I mean it's not like you can control me. We learned that lesson." Said Mr. Zumbro chidely. Zumbro walked over to the next desk "Ugh, you're late again," Said Bradley Stevens, the team accountant. "Just because the Countess is your aunt..." WTC sales division by North White, on Flickr Zumbro picked up Bradley's Coffee and drank it. "Ugh, why isn't this a Sea Rat Coffee? Every Coffee needs liquor!" "Hey! And not only is that racist to Sea Rats- Bradley was cut off "Who are jerks." Said Zumbro "I..." "Have no good response because you're not as awesome as me?" Sally Whistled loudly. "Everyone! We have a briefing to do!" WTC sales division by North White, on Flickr The group gathered around the table. Pete Spoke up. "So, Trador. A Large Eslandolan town just a zone outside our own. Dominated by MAESTRO." "Wait, what does MAESTRO stand for again? Misfits Acquiring Esoteric Stuff, Trading, at Random Outposts?" Asked Zumbro "No, it's Mypa-Stedor... Something Something.. I don't know." Said Pete. "So what about them?" Asked Sally "Well, there are goods they sell that we don't. And goods we sell that they don't." Added Pete "Like anything involving horses?" Asked Zumbro, "Cause we killed a looooot of Horses last month." "Basically. Anyways, we need to establish an office there. And the last time we were there...." WTC sales division by North White, on Flickr "Yeah Yeah. We were pretty drunk after that soccer match. We got some neat stuff out of that warehouse though." Said Sally. "Yeah... And also probably ruined relations with them. So, do what you can." Said Pete angrily. "To destroy their water supply and orchards?" Asked Zumbro "No! To set up a company house, and to start doing business with them. You idiot." Said Pete. "So get a ship and get on it!" "Are you sure?..." "Yes!" FIN Thanks for viewing the character introduction for Joseph Zumbro. I'm trying to work on adding more characters so I'm not limited to just Agnes and the Count. C&C appreciated everyone.
  25. Location: Breshaun Type: Small Commercial "Wow! Breshaun sure is great! It's the largest city on the brick seas! And it sure is nice!" Said Captain Kelly, of the WTC Teamwork. "Yeah, and everybody here is so nice. How do they afford all this?" Said Jane, his right hand woman. Highway robbery by North White, on Flickr "Excuse me sir, is this the place where we register our profits for the KPA?" Kelly asked the guard. Highway robbery by North White, on Flickr "Hehehe. Yep! Go on in." He said with an evil laugh. The two went into the office. An Oleonese Noblewoman sat at the desk. Highway robbery by North White, on Flickr "Well well well, thank you for docking in Breshaun. Are you ready to pay the tax?" She said with an evil grin. "Wait, isn't there supposed to be a free market?" Asked Kelly. "No! Of course not! We need to fund our public endowment to the arts by stealing- I mean taxing ship's profits! Here, read this." She said. Highway robbery by North White, on Flickr "Wait what? You're holding us hostage?!?!" Asked Kelly incredulously. "No... Now give us the money! MWAHAHAHA!" Highway robbery by North White, on Flickr "At least that's how I remember it," Kelly wrote in his diary. FIN Thanks for viewing my build! Just a little poke at Oleon for having such high taxes. I'm sure they appreciate the building in their settlement as well. I'll make sure to pay by the end of the month. Is it Oleon or Breshaun I'm paying? C&C appreciated!
