  1. The Continuing Adventures of Count Mesabi! Location: Astrapi Acropolis Type: Small Cultural (Prison is a Government building, government is cultural. Also commentary on Oleon's culture ) Deaaaaaaaarrrrr Wifeee, So, today, on my long and winding voyage back to Mesabi Landing, I stopped in Astrapi Acropolis to talk to Padrè François, cause you know, I was kinda bored. Anyways, after breaking into a highly secure Oleander prison, I found his cell. He was just hanging out, so I walk up, and I'm like, 'Yo, how many times have you dropped the soap in here?' And he's like 'YOU?!?' And I'm like 'Yeah?' And he's like 'I've burned heretics in fires.... blah blah blah blah... I should purge... blah blah." and anyways after like a few minutes of this, I'm like 'Oh yeah, while I've burned churches and abbeys and monasteries, and convents...' Well, then some idiot guard walks in, apparently he heard us yelling or whatever, and he's like 'Freeze!' And I'm like 'You don't control my temperature!' And then I used my awesome fight skills to incapacitate him peacefully. Anyways, then I just grabbed his chamber pot and and threw it in his bed and left. So, anyways, I'd say it went over well. A victory for interfaith dialogues! Oh, and for plausible deniability, "Or maybe it was a dream." Love, Count Mesabi Thanks for viewing my build. Also thanks to @Ross Fisher for letting me use his character. I kinda overbuilt on this one, I was originally going to have the Count escape through the window, but changed my mind. I also made it as simple as neat and spartan as possible, reflecting Oleon's culture because it's a prison. As this is somewhat of a bizarre build, and Mesabi is a somewhat unreliable narrator, I wouldn't think to hard about how canon this is.
  2. Location: Rogian Sea Type: Class 5 Junk The WTC had been the first trading company to set up shop in the south, and had a small outpost on Kemblarsi as well. Today, a new ship was heading in to dock. Captained by Madam Dogtooth, the WTC Rising Sun was a Junk originally from the Gerlo Empire. The Junk was mostly unarmed, prefering to defend itself with speed and maneuverability. As port appeared on the horizon, it's precious cargo would soon be unloaded. What was on board could soon change the course of history in the Brick Seas... FIN Thanks for viewing my build. I'm happy with how this one turned out. (It's a substantial improvement over my last Junk for sure! ) This was an interesting build, for sure. I used Mixel joints to make the stern and bow rise above the rest of the hull, and than used some different techniques for the rest of the hull. The sails are from destiny's bounty, of course, and they look nice, especially with the colour scheme. I'm not sure if this is a class 5 or 4, and I'll be happy to downgrade it if the court so requests. C&C appreciated!
  3. Their offices in Quinnsville had just recently been set up properly, but the WTC had already establish local business opportunities some time ago. The island of Cocovia was known for its fertile grounds, especially for coffee and cocoa, so it seemed natural to claim some new land from the jungle for an agricultural venture. With cocoa already grown on a large plantation nearby, and another one near King's Harbour, it had been decided to go for coffee. Highly profitable, coffee was still yet to be grown in commercial quantities in Corrington - so the WTC might have a first mover advantage on the market! Having... acquired... the necessary seeds from an ETTC research site in King's Harbour, the first coffee trees were growing already, while parts of the plantation were still in the process of being set up. Fighting back the jungle proved to be easier said than done! .. The local WTC Operator was discussing the progress with the plantations foreman: "We need to get this up and running as soon as possible. I promised results to Mr. Mordo, and I do not plan to disappoint him." "But sir, I need more men. The conditions here are tough, and even then the trees only grow so fast. It will take time, no matter what." "I guess. Still, hasten your efforts. The sooner we can sell overpriced coffee to gullible minifigs, the better." "Will do, sir. By the way, what is it with all the gold?" "We are a royal trade company after all! It also helps with moving our income around. For tax purposes, you know. The last thing we want is to pay the Crown..." ================================= Licensed as a medium plantation in Quinnsville. A wide shot of the full build: One more aerial view: Since this is for the GoC-initiative, a shoutout to @Ayrlego, @Bregir, @Captain Dee and @SilentWolf. If possible I would really appreciate a quick response if this build is fine, since it takes quite a bit of room, and I fear our cats might soon find it... interesting. I was unable to pick coffee as a category when licensing this, which I found very odd (I picked "Tropical Fruit" instead, which coffee technical is). An oversight in the licensing form? This also might call for an update of the island bonus list. As always, C&C are appreciated, thanks for watching!
  4. 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.

  6. Location: Mesabi Landing Type: Rebuild Studcount: 32x16 (512) Mordo, and Captain Angles walked along the remains of one of the wagon roads that crisscrossed Mesabi Landing. Mesabi Landing Repairs by North White, on Flickr "If we're lucky, the town should be dry by the end of the week." Said Angles optimistically, as his boots squished through the mud. "Luck has not been on our side recently," replied Mordo, "between those idiots in the row boat that attacked Fatu Hiva, and a $&@#ing Tsunami, I'm not sure what else can go wrong." Mesabi Landing Repairs by North White, on Flickr "The Horse Meat AND the explosives was waterlogged." replied Captain Angles "Okay, I definitely jinxed it there." said Mordo. FIN Thanks for viewing my first build for the repairs of Mesabi Landing. I took almost all of @Elostirion's suggestions for this build, and a big thanks from him for his advice. I hope this build can be counted, as it's not really about rebuilding, but I'll get to that soon enough. C&C appreciated
  7. Location: Mesabi Landing Type: Repairs Studcount: 48x48 (2,304) Repairs continued in Mesabi Landing every day. Today, a street was being cobbled, whilce cleanup on the shoreline was done. Joseph Zumbro supervised the work from in front of a small pub. The pub, of course, had been one of the first buildings repaired in Mesabi Landing. Around back, the mess of the shoreline was slowly being dealt with. The newly cobbled road would help things, was the thought. But that didn't stop the WTC from trying to make some work of it before the road was finished. Next to the Bar was a stately house that had been hit hard, and been half washed out. But there was still plenty of work to be done... FIN Thanks for viewing another repair build. Originally, I was just going to have rails next to the road, but then I realized that I wouldn't have really built anything. So, I replaced where the rails were going to be with some buildings. I hope the grey building isn't to simplistic. I used grey 2x4 tiles to try and make it look like it had mason work done. I looked at several techniques for making stone buildings look interesting, but I wasn't quite happy with any of them, as they were mostly for medieval buildings. The White building uses the same siding technique as my last build, which I think works well, and the roof is based of of a build I saw a while back in GOH. The tsunami washout was inspired a bit from my time in Duluth, on Lake Superior. The lake washed out canal park almost every november or so. Anyways, C&C appreciated. Let me know any improvements I can do
  8. 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.
  9. Location: Stormhaven Type: Small Commercial Stormhaven was a small settlement, and for a long time goods had been brought directly in by Corrington. Stormhaven Waymart by North White, on Flickr That had changed when the WTC set up a Waymart in the settlement, forcing the settlement's locals to buy from them. Stormhaven Waymart by North White, on Flickr Today, a Nameren Businessman had arrived to do business with the WTC. Stormhaven Waymart by North White, on Flickr "No, I don't want a #&$#ing loyalty card!" muttered a disgruntled Marine. "But it gets you discounts!" Said a WTC lackey who was loitering in the store. Stormhaven Waymart by North White, on Flickr The Marine stormed out, as the Businessman entered. Certainly, there was something to discuss.... FIN Thanks for viewing my build! I stole a technique from @Ayrlego for the siding, which I think turned out very nicely. I wish I could of done the design for the mangroves that the other builders in Stormhaven did, but alas I did not have the pieces. I hope they look alright. C&C appreciated!
  10. Location: Mesabi Landing Type: Rebuilding Studcount: 16x32 (512) After the Tsunami, most of the water receded. however, one district of Mesabi Landing, Uptown, was reclaimed by the water. Mesabi Landing Repairs by North White, on Flickr Mordo and Captain Angles explored the waterlogged buildings by boat, while a Marine tried to make the best of the situation. Mesabi Landing Repairs by North White, on Flickr FIN Thanks for viewing my build. Again, thanks to @Elostirion for his suggestions and recommendations. The idea behind this one was inspired by the flooded district of the game dishonoured, and I hope to do more with the concept. I just ordered 100 1x2 trans blue tiles for future projects, as I barely had enough to cover this build. C&C appreciated!
  11. Location: Port Raleigh Type: Small Residence/Shiplevels With the HMS Red Angel, docked in the harbour, Captain Ansa Mesabi disembarked and walked up the hill towards a mansion now owned by her infamous brother. Ansa knocked on the door. She wasn't quite sure what to expect, as it had been at least 3 years since she'd seen him last. "Hello?" asked Darby Tyler, "Who are you?" "I'm Captain, err, Count Mesabi's sister." she said. "I figured we had some catching up to do." "Oh..." Said Darby. "This is awkward. He's literally never mentioned you." "We're not super close." Said Ansa. "Well, I'll go grab him." Said Darby. "No need, Darby." Said the Count. "I was eavesdropping, because I was bored. Tell my sister to come in!" Darby ushered Ansa in, and walked down the hallway, muttering about finances. Ansa and the Count walked into the den, and sat down. "So, what have you been up to?" Asked the Count. "Well, I was assigned a ship. Sailed it into the Sea Rat Capital. Admiralty board was not happy about it." said Ansa. "Ha! I've been there. Well, I haven't, but I remember back in the Juniper War..." The Count was interrupted. "You do realize I fought in the Juniper War, right?" replied Ansa snarkily. "Right. Go on." said the Count, sheepishly. "Anyways, than I tried to assassinate the Dread Pirate Sinbad with Strychnine poison. Turns out he's immune to it." said Ansa, referring to an unfortunate incident on a dock in Bastion. "Wait, how is that even possible?" Asked the Count. "I don't #%&#ing know, he's #&%$ing Sinbad. I just went with it, and accepted his terms." said Ansa annoyed. "They let me keep most of our ships." "What did you lose?" asked the Count. "Oh, just some WTC ship." Said Ansa referring to the class 7 WTC Judgement, which currently was being used to wreak havoc across the Brick Seas. "Not the big one, right?" asked the Count. "ANYWAYS" continued Ansa, avoiding the topic. "I've been dry docked for the past few months. Like I said, the Admiralty Board isn't very happy with me. I barely got permission to travel to Port Raleigh." "Well, apparently my wife has been causing all sorts of grief with the Government, so I guess we're in the same boat." replied the Count. "Wait, are you still married to that lady who-" asked Ansa recalling a particularly unpleasant experience involving a cannon at a wedding. "Yes." replied the Count "Even after she-" asked Ansa recalling a different but equally unpleasant experience involving the queen, a diplomat from Eslandola, and a cat. "Yes." replied the Count "Prometheus! No wonder you went all the way from the South." replied Ansa "Yeah..." said the Count. "Hey, you want to get a Drink? Those Lotti in town have a place with Sake, it's booze made out of rice." "Eh, why not. I also have that paperwork for the ship licenses you wanted. replied Ansa "Splendid! Let's get going! Said the Count TO BE CONTINUED Thanks for viewing my build! I decided to finally actually get the WTC some ship levels, and what better way to do it than to actually show the Count interacting with his family. I haven't used Ansa Mesabi much, but I thought it would be interesting to have her in the same room as the Count. I referenced the Sinbad incident, which I never fully resolved. But I'd like to give a shoutout to @MKJoshA who let me keep most of my ships, and thus kept this character from being stuck in Bastion. I've also tried to tie in some other story elements with this build. You'll notice a Tiberian Puffin, from the Reckoning Storyline, along with the Count's Golden Sniper Rifle, and a Promethean Stained Glass window. Continuity is key! Let me know what Ya'll think of this one. I tried to use some good techniques for the floors, but the walls are probably a bit bland. A lot of my pieces are tied up in my last build, which I need approved by the Court for repairs on Mesabi Landing. I've done a build every day for the last few days, but tomorrow I start my new job, so things will slow down from me, back to, well, the rate the rest of you build at. As usual, C&C appreciated!
  12. Location: N/A Type: Class 4 Ship WTC Libertine by North White, on Flickr The WTC Libertine had a long history. Built as an Oleander Snow around the turn of the century, the ship was sold to Telvoki trader, who used it to smuggle for Corrington during the Juniper War. WTC Libertine by North White, on Flickr The ship had been bought by the WTC, who kept the blue colour scheme, and renamed it. WTC Libertine by North White, on Flickr The Ship was to be assigned to Captain Angles, whose' original ship, The Checkered Past, was far to leaky to be used as a trade ship. WTC Libertine by North White, on Flickr The ship was quite well stocked, favouring hauling and smuggling over combat. WTC Libertine by North White, on Flickr But the WTC had plans for this ship... Fin Thanks for viewing my new ship! I was heavily inspired by @Captain Braunsfeld's ship, and you'll probably notice a lot of similarities. Yes, blue is super historically inaccurate as a colour scheme, but I had the white and blue hulls, and I really like how it turned out. I think the one thing I don't like is the Rigging pieces, I wish I had the long ones, but unfortunately, I only have the short one's so I doubled up. I probably won't do custom rigging on this, but I do plan to make some sails for it, at some point. I'd like this to count for Task 2 of Category 3 of the GOC. Please let me know any suggestions for her, I'm calling her finished, but if anyone has any suggestions for making her better, I will work on implementing them. @Bregir, @Ayrlego, @SilentWolf, and @Captain Dee, let me know what you guys think too.
  13. =========================================== THE THRONE OF GONDA =========================================== Resources: Characters: Maps Goals Chapter 1: Homecoming In gonda by North White, on Flickr The ships had been anchored in the bay of Gonda, since the port was officially closed to all traffic. Scratches, their rower, guided them towards the docks. "The Great whaling ships of Gonda sail no more." Remarked Delilah, seeing the wreck of a ship against the dock. In gonda by North White, on Flickr "Things have gotten worse since we left." Said Isabella "Well, the WTC is here to fix things!" Said Agnes In gonda by North White, on Flickr The crew disembarked onto the remains of the pier. Old crates and bottles were scattered everywhere. "They're late." Said Delilah In gonda by North White, on Flickr They waited in silence for a few minutes before the carriage arrived. In gonda by North White, on Flickr They loaded in, and were off, leaving the docks behind. The Palace awaited! In gonda by North White, on Flickr To Be Continued... Thanks for viewing my build! This launches my new AMCRA, which will attempt to flesh out Namere, and tell a new story in the old world. C&C appreciated!
  14. Location: Mesabi Landing Type: Large Factory Literacy rates continue to climb in Mesabi Landing, as a wide selection of books were printed in Mesabi Landing's printing factory Book Making by North White, on Flickr In a small outbuilding, Tony oversaw the typesetting onto the printing plate. Book Making by North White, on Flickr In the main building, Captain Angles made sure that all the steps of production were done according to plan. Book Making by North White, on Flickr Type was put onto each press, and paper underneath it. Book Making by North White, on Flickr Each press imprinted the words onto paper, and the printed pages were stacked in piles. Book Making by North White, on Flickr Pages were stacked in order, and bound with horse glue, and covered with a horse leather cover. Book Making by North White, on Flickr Soon, another load of books would be sent out to the Brick seas... FIN Thanks for viewing this build! C&C appreciated!

  16. Near the center of King's Harbour, a small admiralty office is located. In here, rear-admiral Fletcher is dictating official dispatches to a clerk after having read this season's reports from the fleet. "And next... To Lieutenant Lavendwood, HMS Intrepid" he says, waiting for the clerk to catch up on his notes. "Based on your recent efforts in bringing down the piratical fleets of the notorious Bluebeard, and your long time achievements in command of the King's Harbour gunboats, it is my pleasure and duty to promote you commander in her Majesty's Royal Navy effective 1st of January, 619 AE. In leiu of a suitable command (as none are currently available on this station), it is decided to rerate the HMS Intrepid to sloop of war. This may seem merely a formality, but until such a time that a suitable command becomes available, at least it will afford you the comfort of a sloop of war being allotted one additional lieutenant aboard to stand watches etc." After pausing to let the clerk catch up, he continues: "I give you joy of your promotion and shall keep you informed, should a suitable command become available." @Flavius Gratian "That will be all sir?" the clerk asks. "Not at all! Inform Captain Cooke to make all available warships ready for sail at a moments notice, should they be ordered to Mesabi Landing. And have extra contingents of marines prepare to board" "To teach those Oleanders a lesson, should they take matters into their own hands against the WTC!?" beams the clerk with a martial smile upon his face. Shooting lighting from under his bushy brows, Fletcher growls: "Have your wits about you, man! No, to take care of any piratical leanings on account of the WTC and set the settlements to rights, should they have no satisfactory explanation! WTC crews have endangered peace with Oleon and committed acts of piracy!" Sighing, the rear-admiral mumbles to himself: "At least Montoya has returned. It would seem his services might be very much needed shortly..." Flethcher's comments to the recent MRCA results. Good cop/bad cop in one and the same person! :)
  17. Participants: Mesabi Vessels: WTC Aurora; WTC Copperhead Coffers: 10 Dbs Troops: 10 WTC Marines, 20 WTC Volunteers Purpose: To boldly go where no Corlander has gone before, the south Characters: Madin disappeared into the Horizon as the two ships sailed around the peninsula. Southbound and down by North White, on Flickr The Copperhead had been adapted into the flagship of the expedition, well most of the men stayed aboard the Aurora. Southbound and down by North White, on Flickr In the Cabin of the Copperhead, Count Mesabi, Darby, Dmitri, and Samantha studied the maps. Southbound and down by North White, on Flickr "You know, I'm just happy to get away from Agnes for a while." Said the Count. "Did I ever tell you she once challenged an Apple tree to a duel? Then she blew it up with a cannon." "Eye two am fleeing from my wife." Said Dmitri, "She is much liek your woman." "I'm still not sure why you need an accountant to travel to the new world." Muttered Darby. "Well, someone needs to count the amount of TNT we have." Said Samantha wryly. "I did. It's a lot. Why do we need TNT to discover a new world?" Asked Darby "Darby, I think you know why." Said the Count. Darby did not, but realized he would never get an answer. FIN
  18. Location: Mesabi Landing Type: Large Commercial Perhaps the most important section of Mesabi Landing was the offices of the WTC WTC offices by North White, on Flickr Inside, important WTC members waited for appointments.

  19. Location: Mesabi Landing Type: Large Commercial Mordo drove the cargo wagon across the elevated railway through Mesabi Landing. As Chief Officer of Human Resources it was his job to inspect the railways that made Mesabi Landing the Awesome powerhouse of industry that it was. Mesabi Landing by North White, on Flickr He followed the rails over the bridge to the loading dock, where large ships were set to be loaded. Mesabi Landing by North White, on Flickr Meanwhile, the streets of Mesabi Landing were busy as usual, street cars and coaches traveled the many roads of the great city. Mesabi Landing by North White, on Flickr Mordo was excited to make sure the cargo got to the ship. Mesabi Landing never attracted much port traffic even though it was far more prosporous than Jamestown and Fatu Hiva Mesabi Landing by North White, on Flickr Mesabi Landing by North White, on Flickr Mordo disembarked, and unhitched the horse to lead it back around. They'd soon have to find a better way to do this, that kept the horse moving. Mesabi Landing by North White, on Flickr But business continued as usual in the landing, in small shops, and in large factories. Mesabi Landing by North White, on Flickr FIN Thanks for viewing my build. Originally the second half was a bit different, it was a lot flimsier, and then I dropped it, necessitating some improvements. I also don't really have the space to photograph it effectively, that's my couch in the background. C&C appreciated.
  20. Location: Mesabi Landing Type: Large Artisan It was evening in Mesabi Landing. Shadows stretched across the sand as Princess Isabella, Countess Agnes Mesabi, and Mordo walked to a pub. Waterfront in Mesabi Landing by North White, on Flickr "The Count has returned to known territory, and he has an... interesting... proposal." Said Mordo, not revealing his thoughts on the matter. "Yes, but this won't change anything with our plans for Gondova, will it?" asked Isabella with concern. Waterfront in Mesabi Landing by North White, on Flickr "No, and we're agreeing to his proposal. We just need the Queen to agree. If that's even possible..." Said Agnes. "We leave for Gonda tomorrow. We take the Red Queen, The Icarus Returning, the Destroying Angel, and as many troops as we can raise." Waterfront in Mesabi Landing by North White, on Flickr The three entered the pub. The pool players took one look at who had walked in, and offered their sticks to Agnes and the Princess. Waterfront in Mesabi Landing by North White, on Flickr "Tomorrow, Namere will begin a new chapter. but tonight? We get wasted!" Said Agnes. "Didn't you say that yesterday?" asked Mordo Continuing the story is @Drunknok... Later on the same day, Princess Isabella had already left, Agnes Mesabi was still playing billard, with a WTC crowd gathered around the table. And while Agnes enjoyed herself, Mordo had some other business to do right behind the pub. Agnes playing... ... Mordo leaving through the back door. . "Listen you two, this must not fall back on me. You get paid well, and you keep your mouths shut - if you know what is good for you. Take care of that thing with the guy in the place... make it look like an accident. You know... the usual." "Aye, Mr. M.!" Later on, the crowd left one by one, Agnes Mesabi was still playing, getting more drunk by the minute, slowly losing patience with the balls: . In the end, the game was still not finished, but the evening ended well for Lady Mesabi, snoring loudly: FIN Thanks for viewing my build. C&C appreciated. Also Mesabi Landing has elevated Rails now.

  22. Location: Mesabi Landing Type: Small Commercial Adventure Purpose: To hunt down the Red Rascal Pirates of zone 35. Troops: 10 WTC Marines- Red Squad Coffers: 10 Dbs Character List "You gentlemen are some of the WTC's finest. The Smartest Captain. The most Decorated Marines. And Tony, who's just a cool dude." Said Agnes. Mesabi Landing AMCRA by North White, on Flickr "Thank you Madam." Said Tony with one of his famous grins. "Now unfortunately, We have a problem. There are pirates in the area. They attacked our ships a few months ago. And now they're based somewhere in the vicinity. Hiding..." Mesabi Landing AMCRA by North White, on Flickr "They're the Red Rascals. 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! Isle 14: Argentia (I think we would have noticed if they were on our own island!) Isle 15: Cacadia Isle 16: Uncharted... Isle 17: Uncharted... Isle 18: Celestia Isle 19: Garma's Key Isle 20: Uncharted... Isle 21: Uncharted... Isle 22: Uncharted... Isle 23: Ile d'Ore (Let's hope they ain't here. I don't want to deal with Oleon as well) "So, while we have our Gunboats on patrol, you fine gentlemen will search each island by row boat, to try to locate the camp, and deal with it. That clear?" 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.
  23. The Brick Seas are a rough place, that much is for certain. The Wayfarer Trading Company did its best to make them a safer space. But despite their succes in hunting down pirates, potential dangers were still everywhere. A war between Prio and the Sea Rats had just been averted, but oerall tensions were still high. Mesabi Landing had to stay safe. So it was decided to invest in a series of large fortifications, with the first one guarding the harbour. Three others would follow, being set up around the settlement, protecting it in all directions, shielding it from any attack. This first fortress was named West Shield: Observation Point Main Battery Minor Battery Delta Storage Level Mobile Defense ======================================================================= A large fortress for Mesabi Landing, licensed by the WTC. Build sizes are as follows: Observation Point: 32x32 Main Battery: 32x32 Minor Battery Delta: 16x32 Storage Level: 32x32 Mobile Defense: 16x32 It all adds up to 64x64, i.e. the footprint of a large fort. Each build is supposed to be one section of the fort, but not in the way that they would be combined into one single structure. Imagine that each of these is exemplary for similr structures in West Shield, and that there are parts of the fort you do not get to see. As always, C&C are appreciated!
  24. Location: Mesabi Landing Type: Large Artisan "So this is Mesabi Landing... ...We've passed 3 bars since we got in the carriage." Said Princess Isabella. "And 4 Horse meat Markets!" The Yellerbelly Inn by North White, on Flickr "I'm just glad we found a taxi! This city is huge!" Said Antonio The Yellerbelly Inn by North White, on Flickr The Cab reached their destination, the YellerBelly Inn. The Yellerbelly Inn by North White, on Flickr "Here's your stop gente." Said the Cab Driver in a near incomprehensible Eslandolan accent. The Yellerbelly Inn by North White, on Flickr The Street was busy, Mesabi Landing almost was, but at least this section of the town was free of the rail shipping system. The Yellerbelly Inn by North White, on Flickr The taxi pulled up to the Inn. The Yellerbelly Inn by North White, on Flickr Antonio Paid the man, and he and Isabella walked to the door of the Inn The Yellerbelly Inn by North White, on Flickr Inside, the Inn was dingy, and smelled of cheap beer. The Yellerbelly Inn by North White, on Flickr "And... Ace means the Countess takes the Cash!" Yelled Agnes Mesabi, the other player exclaimed loudly and stomped off. The Yellerbelly Inn by North White, on Flickr Isabella sat in the chair where the other player had been. The Yellerbelly Inn by North White, on Flickr "I am Princess Isabella of Namere, the rightful heir of Gonda. And I come to you with a business opportunity." Said Isabella, but she wondered why it had been so easy to track down the de facto mayor of Mesabi Landing. "way to put all your cards on the table." muttered Antonio The Yellerbelly Inn by North White, on Flickr "Good enough for me!" Said Agnes Mesabi, extending a hand. TO BE CONTINUED thanks for viewing my build. July was a busy month for me, I recently got an apartment, and spent the week getting stuff moved in. This was the last build I did at my old place, and it sat for about 2 weeks before I finally found the time to post it. This build was my attempt to recreate @Ayrlego's "Twin Palm Inn" I think his was better though... Anyways, with a new larger Lego Space, you can all expect a new era of Lego from Count Mesabi . Unless school is super busy.... Entire shot of the build.
  25. Location: Mesabi Landing Type: Class 8 Ship Destroying Angel by North White, on Flickr Having been launched, the WTC's largest ship, the Destroying Angel now floated majestically in the harbour of Mesabi Landing. Destroying Angel by North White, on Flickr Agnes and the Ship's Designer walked along the deck, discussing the mighty vessel. Destroying Angel by North White, on Flickr "How is a vessel with 6 cannons worthy of the name "Destroying Angel?!?" Asked Agnes angrily. "Maybe you should have waited before naming it!" Yelled the designer. "This ship was built as a speedy, long range, maneuverable, gunboat. Not a Hard Hitting Warship." "Easy now-" Agnes was interrupted. "DON'T QUESTION MY DESIGNS EVER AGAIN!" Yelled the Designer. The tour continued in silence until they reached the conference room. Destroying Angel by North White, on Flickr "As you requested, a fully stocked bar, and a conferance room for directing WTC operations." "Excellent." replied Agnes. Destroying Angel by North White, on Flickr The Majestic Ship would soon see action against the Pirates of the Brick Seas... ...except for Sinbad thanks to the reckless actions of Ansa Mesabi... FIN So, finally finished the destroying angel, which I had working on since around November. I recently finished it up and spent the day doing rigging in sails, and I will say the following. Sails are $#@%$#@%$%$#@%#@%$#@%@#%#@%@#%@#^&*&*^(^%#@$$#@^&&(&^%#$$@#$ing difficult to do. And mine look absolutely terrible. They also took me like 6 hours to do, as well as a major chunk of my sanity. So I am not going to fix them anytime soon. Otherwise, I'm mostly happy with the rigging, and the ship as a whole. I tried to follow @Bregir's suggestions for the ship, and worked hard to give her a nice tumblehouse. I also added my own little interior for when I need a conference scene when I'm fighting pirates. C&C appreciated, though the sails are awful. I understand.
