  1. Location: Cocovia Type: Minichallenge build The Super Precarious Bridge had been built to cross a gorge on Cocovia Super precarious bridge by North White, on Flickr The Plans had called for them to go at an easier crossing. Super precarious bridge by North White, on Flickr But The WTC is also awesome at building bridges for some reason FIN Just another entry to @Brickwolf's minichallnege. I was originally going to use these for the supports, but it made everything look too pink, and I'm not @Bodi . I didn't really have a story envisioned for this one, which is what most of you seem to come here for, so sorry. Maybe I'll rewrite it. This entry should be considered a 16x48, but if the powers that be otherwise, I suppose it could be reduced. C&C appreciated!
  2. Location: Mesabi Landing/ Cocovia Type: Minichallenge build Mordo headed up to Agnes's office with the monthly newspaper The Office by North White, on Flickr "Um, about the hole in the-" Agnes cut him off "Candle fell on the TNT. What's the latest?" The Office by North White, on Flickr "So, first off... The Grand Cocovia Railway has stalled out. It's over budget and over time. They're opening the project to other nations in a last ditch effort to complete it." Mordo summerized "What!?! Other nations?" Agnes yelled "We built them a dock, right?" "The dock doesn't really help to further the railroad. Anyways, the Sea Rats have-" Agnes rose from her chair. The Office by North White, on Flickr "No, we have to deal with this. Charter me a ship to Cocovia. You're in charge while I'm gone." "But!" "No Buts!" ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- A WEEK LATER The Tavern by the tracks was where most of the railworkers spent their days. Traffic was busy in King's harbor, and the railroad was often delayed by passing carts. Unionist Tavern by North White, on Flickr Unionist Tavern by North White, on Flickr Inside, workers happily chatted, ignoring their duty to the railroad. A Union had formed, and while contracts were negotiated, work would not be completed. Unionist Tavern by North White, on Flickr The door opened, and Agnes Mesabi walked in, flanked by Pete Zanzibar, and two yellow jacket soldiers. Agnes fired her gun. Unionist Tavern by North White, on Flickr "Now which one of you is in charge of the union?" she yelled angrily Unionist Tavern by North White, on Flickr "That'd be me, miss, and you better watch yourself, because I know a few guys who could talk some sense into you. But I'm not the kind of man who starts fights." Said the Union leader Unionist Tavern by North White, on Flickr Agnes said nothing and walked over to the bar. "A bottle of your finest," she asked politely. Unionist Tavern by North White, on Flickr The Union leader began to walk back to the table. Agnes began to down the bottle. Unionist Tavern by North White, on Flickr Finishing it, she flipped it, turned and smacked the man on the back of the head. He fell with a groan. Unionist Tavern by North White, on Flickr "Gentlemen?" she asked. "Show this man how the WTC operates...." Unionist Tavern by North White, on Flickr The two yellow jackets began to punch and kick the man, while he cried in agony. "The WTC will be helping to assure the project is finished." Said Agnes coldly. "And you can forget your union. We don't do unions." Unionist Tavern by North White, on Flickr She turned to the bartender. "Another of your finest." She said with a smile. FIN Thanks for viewing my first actual entry into the CWW challenge. My last one wasn't up to snuff, so I'd like to offer this one, and possibly some more. I hope you don't feel we have @Brickwolf. All shares created by me are to be given to the crown. C&C appreciated!
  3. Location: Arlinsport Tags: Medium Factory Arlinsport had a moderate WTC presence. And today a new factory was opening. Hat House by North White, on Flickr "Those damn yellow jackets said their product was going to be very important if we fight a war." Said the chief inspector. "So this mission might be our last..." The oarman said nothing, but looked concerned. Everyone knew the stories of the WTC. Hat House by North White, on Flickr The inspector disembarked. The factory was located on the outskirts of the city, along the great sea cliffs that surrounded most of the island. Hat House by North White, on Flickr A WTC elite greeted him. "I'm Mary. Welcome to our little establishment!" She said with an evil chuckle The inspector said nothing, and the two walked over and into the building. Hat House by North White, on Flickr "The WTC is proud to present the crown with a place for creating Shakos!" Hat house by North White, on Flickr "We take black cloth, and make hats!" Hat House by North White, on Flickr "Then shifty pete slaps a gold Corrington logo on them!" Hat House by North White, on Flickr The two walked out. "And all this is provided to the crown, free of charge. Because the WTC loves Corrington.™" And so, the WTC actually did something slightly Corrish for once. FIN Thanks for viewing my build! This will knock out half of the factory points required for Arlinsport to advance to the next level. It is also to be licensed by Arlinsport, if that can be arranged. Originally, this was supposed to be my second Charlatan Bay build, but well, I'm not sure if we're allowed to build there. C&C appreciated!
  4. Location: Arlinsport Type: Small Commercial The Bank of Corrington's payment desk was seldom graced by anyone from the WTC, but today, there was an exception. Paying some debts by North White, on Flickr "You people, are actually paying?" The banker asked in surprise. Paying some debts by North White, on Flickr "Of course! The WTC always pays its debts. Eventually. We're always com-" The Marine was cut off "Why is the chest leaking?" The banker asked in concern. Paying some debts by North White, on Flickr "Uh.. I think we grabbed the wrong chest. Terribly sorry." The two marines grabbed the dripping chest and hurried out. The Guardsman grabbed a broom. Paying some debts by North White, on Flickr An hour later they returned to the bank, carrying a chest clearly filled with gold. As they walked in, one of the marines slipped in the mysterious liquid. Paying some debts by North White, on Flickr Gold flew everywhere, landing in the puddle and underneath chests. Paying some debts by North White, on Flickr The banker said nothing. "Well that's half of the loan sorry-we're-not-cleaning-it-up-bye." Said a marine, and the two darted out. Paying some debts by North White, on Flickr And the rest of the day, the room stank of what was probably horse blood. FIN Thanks for viewing this little build to commemorate me paying off some of the loan I took from the BoC! @Bregir, funds will transfer when I get to it. If Arlinsport would like to license this build as a small commercial, that would be great as well. C&C appreciated!
  5. Location: Mesabi Landing Type: Medium Cultural The Church of the Order in Mesabi Landing was usually where weddings were held. Wedding crashing by North White, on Flickr "Dear friends and family.... We are... gathered here.... today" The priest droned. Wedding crashing by North White, on Flickr "To.... join... these.... two in.... holy matrimony..." *BANG* Wedding crashing by North White, on Flickr Agnes walked into the church, pistol smoking, drunk as hades. Wedding crashing by North White, on Flickr "So! You's the happiest couple! Well let me tell you people about getting married....." Wedding crashing by North White, on Flickr "Madam, you should leave...." Said the groom. Wedding crashing by North White, on Flickr Agnes knocked him to the floor. "I pronounce you man! And... ah who cares." She slurred Wedding crashing by North White, on Flickr Agnes ran out, leaving the wedding guests in stunned silence. FIN So, I got a sailboat with clear sails for Christmas, and I wanted to experiment with them as stained glass windows. I'm not sure if it worked, but I'll let y'all be the judge of that. Originally I was going to make this be Agnes sitting through a boring church service, but I thought this would be funnier. Hopefully it's not to sacreligious. C&C appreciated!
  6. [AMRCA Drunknok]

    INDEX Summary Prelude =============== SUMMARY Status: Prelude 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" Troops 1 Platoon (10 WTC Marines) ========================================== Dramatis personae:
  7. Location: Zone 35 Type: Class 2 The newest addition to the WTC's fleet was the WTC Dog Days. WTC Dog Days by North White, on Flickr Designed for hauling cargo medium range, she was just another addition to the Brick Seas WTC Dog Days by North White, on Flickr Yup, nothing to see here folks. Just another free class 2 ship. FIN C&C appreciated, but I'm not expecting much today. Also I need to raise my ship levels again...
  8. 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.
  9. Location- New Haven, Alicentia Type- Large Artisan New Haven was a sort of way station for several nations. And it was here that Greenway Restaurant was located, to serve all of the different cuisines. Greenway restaurant by North White, on Flickr It was also a meeting place for Corrish soldiers, who had a particular mystery on their hands... Greenway restaurant by North White, on Flickr "Seriously, where in Hades's name are all the horses going?" asked the sergeant. "We all know it... it's..." the other soldier was interrupted by the loud clopping of horses. Greenway restaurant by North White, on Flickr The WTC Calvary rode up, loudly guffawing. Greenway restaurant by North White, on Flickr "And then they all died. Huh! That's a lot of Valets! Greenway restaurant by North White, on Flickr "Gentlemen, watch our axes and horses. There's a Horse thief running amok! And FYI we don't tip." Said the Dragoon. They both entered the Greenway Resteraunt Greenway restaurant by North White, on Flickr The two were seated by the lovely hostess Greenway restaurant by North White, on Flickr Before she could hand them a menu, they told her to order for them. "I tell you," said the first. "The WTC has really got things going on in the Brick Seas." Greenway restaurant by North White, on Flickr "And we're glad to be a part of it. But we need more members! If only more prominent members of Corrington would join us!" Greenway restaurant by North White, on Flickr The hostess yelled at the chef. "Daily Special! And make it snappy, these guys look jumpy!" Greenway restaurant by North White, on Flickr The chef sighed, and walked outside. Greenway restaurant by North White, on Flickr Past the livestock... Greenway restaurant by North White, on Flickr and over to the cauliflower... Greenway restaurant by North White, on Flickr A while later, the hostess brought the Calvary a big pot of Cauliflower soup. Greenway restaurant by North White, on Flickr They hated it, and tipped accordingly. FIN Thanks for viewing my build for @Bregir ! He won this with his awesome entry into my minichallenge like three months ago. Maybe the famous Herlock Sholmes can solve the mystery of the disappearing horses on Alicetina as well! Anyways, I hope it's up to his standards. Money will be forwarded as well eventually. This build also marks the entry of the WTC Calvary, who actually ride their horses. C&C appreciated! Also this marks 1000 posts! Let's hear another round of https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=czqhyVGdYiE
  10. Location: Outside Mooreton Bay Type: Ship The brave crew of the WTC Riff Raft sailed and rowed towards the WTC Icarus Returning WTC Riff Raft by North White, on Flickr The Corrish Marines stationed aboard leered at them as they pulled alongside, but they were happy to get off the deathtrap that was the Icarus Returning WTC Riff Raft by North White, on Flickr The exchange was quick. The Marines hopped in a lifeboat and started frantically rowing away. The WTC crew got into position and heaved the anchor, and sailed the ship away WTC Riff Raft by North White, on Flickr And so, the Icarus Returning was free to sail again, and haul mining explosives across the Brick Seas. FIN This is the build for my little class 0 "Riff Raft" It could use a little work, I know, but I'm happy with it. It will be doing short trade runs across zone 24. Also, I'm a little confused as to where to have the Icarus Returning start this TMCRA, as it technically isn't allowed in Mooreton Bay. C&C appreciated
  11. It was a cloudy day in Mooreton bay as the trial was set to begin. The trial, day 1 by North White, on Flickr Everyone in the town came to see the trial, as there was pretty much nothing else to do that day. The trial, day 1 by North White, on Flickr Tyrell was lead in in chains. The trial, day 1 by North White, on Flickr But Jake Cochran arrived late to the scene, arrogant as always. The trial, day 1 by North White, on Flickr "Hey Buddy" Said Jake The trial, day 1 by North White, on Flickr "Your shoe is untied!" The trial, day 1 by North White, on Flickr "Oh thanks!" Said the Courthouse Guard, "wait...." The trial, day 1 by North White, on Flickr Jake knocked the guard's hat off, with a mad cackle. "HEY!" But it was to late as Jake sprinted into the courthouse The trial, day 1 by North White, on Flickr FIN Please use this space to discuss the trial! We Don't want to clutter up the trial thread!
  12. Location: Charlatan Bay Type: Large Factory He air hung heavy with the screams of horses and the scent of blood as Charlatan Bay's most industrial factory worked hard to create a vital product. Horse sausage Factory by North White, on Flickr Horses were brought in on small boats to the edge of Charlatan Bay, where the factory worked hard to process them. The WTC Riff Raft brought in two an hour on a good day. Horse sausage Factory by North White, on Flickr Completed Sausages were smoked in a small smokehouse built on the remains of the captains cabin. Horse sausage Factory by North White, on Flickr But Unfortunately, the Horses had to be sheared and dehoofed before they could be made into sausages, which was the bottleneck of the operation. Horse sausage Factory by North White, on Flickr But, once they were liberated, they could be ground down into sausages. It usually took a bit of prompting to force them into the grinder, but giving them a stiff drink beforehand usually weakened their resolve. Horse sausage Factory by North White, on Flickr And so, box after box of horsausage was made, smoked and shipped off into the colonies. Horse sausage Factory by North White, on Flickr FIN Hope you liked this build everyone. The factory is supposed to be built on a wrecked ship, next to an equally wrecked building, I'm just not sure how clear that is in the pictures. I really had fun with this one, and with all my Charlatan Bay builds in general. It was nice to have a change of atmosphere with my builds. I'll probably license the WTC Riff Raft in the future as a class 0, but I'm usually pretty lazy about doing so. C&C appreciated! Let me know if I should upload better photos as well, It's midnight here, and the light ain't to good.
  13. [Disclaimer: Due to the size of this builds layout and the restrictions of my lightbox I could only do a few limited shots of the whole assembly. Some subassemblies had to be shot on their own. As usual: please excuse my poor photography skills.] It was another sunny day in Mesabi Landing, and the harbour was as busy as always: Some WTC Marines enjoyed a fistfight between two sailors... ... while Gonzo "Drunknok" Thompson just enjoyed a moment of rest and peace (and a bottle of rum): Some had todays work already done... ... and others still had a lot to do: The captain of the "Cranky Parrot" was discussing something with Joe... ... while another sailor was heading straight for the "Blue Dragon" right down the road: === WTC Warehouse One of the WTC Operators is taking stock: "Four Corrington suits, minor blood stains, check. Two pompous Corrie hats, check. Three flags, check. You never know when any of these might come in handy..." " ... one big barrel of beer, check. Two sacks of potatoes, check. One rat guarding the warehouse, check. Six bottles of rum, che... waitaminute! Only five bottles? Oh well, I guess Drunknok needed some inspiration for his newspaper. Fine, five bottles it is then." Harbour Tax Office When Mesabi Landig was founded, one of the first things the Crown set up was an office for the collection of harbour taxes. Little did they know how the WTC would handle things! No doubloons were ever collected here, and over time the building fell into disrepair. The Corrington red is still flying though - order must be upheld! Now the ruins are home to Steven, one of the local crabs. He is the brother of Barney, the bouncer at the "Blue Dragon". WTC Harbour Office . Guarded by two trustworthy (?) WTC Infantry... ... in this building all captains have to register their ships when coming to Mesabi Landing. One of them is doing so right now, while two more are waiting: "Welcome to Mesabi Landing. Your hat looks odd, what is it with the skull and bones?" "Arr, good lady, 'tis my families coat of arms. You see, we are honest to the bone, hence the skull and bones." "I see. For a moment I feared you were a pirate. Please note that piracy will not be tolerated here." "Of course!" "So, what are you trading with?" "Well, artefacts. Mainly made of gold, like these coins." "I see, good. Now we only need your name, and you can continue with your trades." "Umm, I think you want another of our artefacs for further examination." "I see. Mr. Smith, welcome to Mesabi Landing!" ============================================================================================================ Well, that was quite some work. Leaving out the plate with the office of the "WTC Monthly" on it, this build has a footprint of 3072 studs, and will be licensed as a large commercial property for Mesabi Landing. Building the whole thing took me about a month. It is of course modular, while I did not build any structures to support the not-water-plates (being 5 bricks above ground). The harbour sections can easily be rearranged, there are connector holes on the edges for stability. @Ayrlego @Mesabi: Please let me know if you want something to be depicted in any of these builds, for a collab or whatever you want. If not, I will take most of it apart soon. C&C are appreciated.
  14. "Nok, nok, nok..." Gonzo "Drunknok" Thompson walked around in the office of the "WTC Monthly", his peg leg making the familiar sound that gave him the second part of his nickname. The half-full bottle of rum on the table had something to do with the first part. Gonzo was busy getting the latest issue printed. He had the handwritten text in front of him, as well as most of it on the printing plate already. The process of setting up the printing plate took a lot of time, since the text had to be set letter after letter, word after word, out of little blocks of metal each with a negative cut-out of one letter or syllable. A few lines of text were still missing, and he looked for the right letters - luckily they were right next to him in a well sorted shelf. The most common letters had more blocks available in boxes at the top, the least used only had small boxes at the bottom. The finished printing plate was then coated with black ink: It was then put (upside down of course) into the printing press... ... moved over the clean paper and finally mechanically pressed onto the paper: With the printing plate done once, it was now possible to repeat the printing process as often as wanted - simply return the plate, add new ink and fresh paper, press, then start again. The "WTC Monthly" will find its way to every minifig in the Brick Seas - that deserves some more rum. Cheers! =============================================================================================================== A small artisan for Mesabi Landing. More pictures in the spoiler tag: I am not happy with how the building looks from the outside. Usually I like reduced colour palettes, but in this case the result looks like one of those 80s Lego City houses. The inside turned out okay, with a few compromises in terms of realism due to the scale. Obviously the roof is removable, but so is the back wall for even easier access:
  15. The WTC is proud to announce the release of its newsletter: the "WTC Monthly". Without further ado (click for large readable version):
  16. Hear Ye Hear Ye! Captain Tyrell, Rogue WTC Captain, has been detained by Corrish forces in Moorington Bay. His trial is due to commence soon, as allowed by Corrington's Laws. Corrish Law allows for a trial of the Accused's Peers, which is any seafaring Captain on the Brick Seas (I. E. You!) So, We are accepting applications for Jurors in the trial Please Post in this thread. Please post a character picture for your juror, a name, and a ship for them. I'd recommend not using a main story character. The Court trial date is tentatively set for the 20th. Stay Tuned to this topic for updates! Court Docket: Charges: Piracy, violation of Sovereign Treaties, Assault on Corish Officers, Improper Ship Docking Presiding Judge: TBA Prosecutor: TBA Defendant: Captain Tyrell @Mesabi Defense Attorney: Jake Cochran @Mesabi Jurors: TBA Defense Witnesses: Captain Cristoph Tyrell (Icarus Returning) @Mesabi Captain Caroline Carolina (Beacon) @Mesabi First Mate Frederick Hammers @Drunknok Allen Landon, Bank of Corrington Officer @Bregir @Bregir Hope I'm not overstepping my bounds here. But I thought this would be a good topic to make.
  17. Location: Charlatan Bay Type: Medium Factory The WTC had not been well received in Charlatan Bay. The Sight of the massive WTC Judgement had been regarded with disdain. But the WTC had a mission, to establish factories in the Colony. The First had been built by detonating a bunch of explosives in a small cave to enlarge it. There, the WTC worked on a new product. But all was not well. A drunken captain walked up the causeway to the factory, looking for blood. Pants factory by North White, on Flickr "Yah bloody bastards think you can force yer way into Charlatan after what Tyrell did? Well I think not." Said the angry, drunken captain. "Sir, please, we're not looking for trouble." Said the WTC Elite Guard. "Well Mr. Pistol Says you need to go away! Ain't that right Mr. Pistol?" Said the Captain "WTC needs to die!" Said the Captain in a falsetto Pants factory by North White, on Flickr The Elite Sighed. The Captain Cocked his gun. Pants factory by North White, on Flickr It took a quick slash of the blade to knock him back... Pants factory by North White, on Flickr Pants factory by North White, on Flickr Pants factory by North White, on Flickr "Now GET!" Yelled the Elite Pants factory by North White, on Flickr The Sea Rats dropped their remaining weapons and fled in a panic. Pants factory by North White, on Flickr Inside, work continued on the pants. Pants factory by North White, on Flickr Cloth was cut, and sewn into pants. They were piled, and then shipped. Far simpler than most factories. Pants factory by North White, on Flickr And Extra explosives were kept on hand in case of "emergency..." FIN Thanks for viewing my first reparation factory for Charlatan Bay. I read up on the colony, and really liked the idea of the tall cliffs feature of the island. So, I decided to build a cliffside factory, which probably hasn't been done recently. @Kwatchi said I couldn't have my Elites killing anyone (Even in self defense apparently ) So I hope this is a fair compromise. Technically, This is a part of lowtown, though I'd say it's about halfway up the cliff. Storywise I'm happy with it, though I don't think this will make my top 10. C&C appreciated! More pictures.
  18. Location: Jameston, Celestia Type: Medium Commercial Jameston Basecamp by North White, on Flickr Agnes awoke with a start at a table full of papers. Jameston Basecamp by North White, on Flickr "What the? How the $#@$# did I get here?" She asked angrily "Good morning!" Said Pete Zanzibar "I'm glad to see you've come too." "You didn't answer the question, you pinstriped idiot." Agnes muttered. "Well.... after you left the gunpowder factory, you walked into a pineapple tree. You then challenged it to a duel, and blew it up with TNT." Said Pete "And?" "Well, then you tried to rob a general store with a stick." "And?" "And we realized it would just be easier to buy out the store, and set up headquarters there, and let you think you robbed the place." "Oh." Jameston Basecamp by North White, on Flickr "So, anyways, the elites are all here, and we're going to go find that fabled orchard." Said Pete "Wait, who's running things in Mesabi Landing?" Asked Agnes Jameston Basecamp by North White, on Flickr Pete stopped smiling. "Him." He said quietly. "Oh." Said Agnes. "Well then, let's get this show on the road." Jameston Basecamp by North White, on Flickr FIN Thanks for viewing my entry into Challenge 6! As usual, I'm the first to post . I really tried to imitate @Ayrlego's style with this build. I probably failed, but I'm happy with the amount of texture I put into the build. C&C appreciated! More pictures
  19. 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
  20. Location: Mesabi Landing Tags: Small Commerce Yet another warehouse by North White, on Flickr Mesabi Landing had to store all the stuff it ascertained. But it was also a popular place for the WTC infantry to slack off... FIN C&C appreciated, Nothing big or interesting today. Just a quick build to help me build up Mesabi Landing.
  21. Location: Jameston Type: Medium Factory Agnes angrily stomped all the way over to the next WTC factory Gunpowder Factory by North White, on Flickr Pete Zanzibar stood outside. "Madam Mesabi! Have you come to inspect our factory!" Asked Pete Excitedly "This the Gunpowder one or the Bottle one?" Asked Agnes "The Gunpowder one, madam." Gunpowder Factory by North White, on Flickr "Perfect, just the one I was looking for. And let me remind you, I'm not drunk, I just drank enough to keep my nerves steady." Said Agnes. She dropped the two muskets by some empty barrels. "Well, I'll just show you inside, so you can see everything!" Said Pete, nervously Gunpowder Factory by North White, on Flickr "Gunpowder is made of three ingredients. Sulfur, Saltpeter, and Charcoal. We have to import in the Sulfur, but the other to ingredients are manufactured here." Pete Paused. "But, unfortunately, we have to have a Corrington officer to watch everything for safety reasons." Said Pete. "Hey now! Let's see you do this job as well as I do." Said the Corrish Officer Gunpowder Factory by North White, on Flickr "All you do is tell us how much of each ingredient gets dumped in a barrel from that cheat sheet!" Yelled Pete back "Yeah, but I'm certified to read the cheat sheet. Are you?" Said the Officer Smugly. "No... Moving on. We dump barrels of Urine into sand to make saltpeter." Gunpowder Factory by North White, on Flickr "So that's what that smell is..." Muttered Agnes. "Yes, that reminds me can we build a scented candle factory next? Or perfume?" Asked Pete. "I'll think about it." said Agnes, rolling her eyes. "Next, we make charcoal. We do this in that room over there." Pete motioned to a small room off to the side of factory. Gunpowder Factory by North White, on Flickr "And finally, we combine the sulfur, the saltpeter, and the charcoal, in a big vat." Gunpowder Factory by North White, on Flickr "And we just take the powder out and put in buckets." Finished Pete. "Great great great... Can I borrow some?" Asked Agnes drunkenly. "Why?" Asked Pete. "Agnes needs to go shoot someones." Agnes burped loudly. Gunpowder Factory by North White, on Flickr "Uh, I guess... I don't think we have that caliber of ammunition here though, we're using a different type for the advanced rifles." Agnes sighed loudly. "Why is everything so hard!" Gunpowder Factory by North White, on Flickr She kicked open the door, and left in a huff. FIN Thanks for viewing my third factory of the month. I tried to recreate the process of making gunpowder to the best of what the internet says. Hopefully it looks different enough then the last one I did. I made this one bigger and tried to fill the area fully. @Ayrlego I could probably build one more for Jameston to license. I'd really like to do a Musketball factory to end the story arc. As usual, C&C appreciated.
  22. Location: Jameston Type: Medium Factory Agnes and a WTC Elite walked to the edge of Jameston, where the new musket factory had opened. They had been told to only build their buildings on the edge of town for reasons everyone knew. Musket Factory by North White, on Flickr Two Bored WTC Infantrymen stood in front of the factory. "Woah Woah Woah" Said the First. "We're guarding this building. We don't need any of you elites around!" "Yeah, Scram! We don't take your type here." Said the Second. Musket Factory by North White, on Flickr Agnes sighed. "What is it with you grunts? Is someone jealous they aren't called elite?" "No..." Said the first sheepishly. "Good," Said Agnes smugly, "Trooper, stay out here and show them how to guard a building." Agnes entered the building leaving the three soldiers to argue outside. Musket Factory by North White, on Flickr The Foreman greeted her. "Sorry for the delays, countess. We had some trouble constructing the building." "All in good time, mr. foreman. Now, show me how this factory works." "Of course!" Musket Factory by North White, on Flickr "First, Metal is pounded into the rough barrel of the gun." Musket Factory by North White, on Flickr "It's taken over to the furnace, where it's heated, sealing the cracks." Musket Factory by North White, on Flickr "Once it's been forged, we let it cool over here." Musket Factory by North White, on Flickr "Meanwhile, we assemble the flintlock mechanism." Musket Factory by North White, on Flickr Musket Factory by North White, on Flickr Musket Factory by North White, on Flickr "Additionally, the stock is cut out of wood." Musket Factory by North White, on Flickr "All of the pieces are brought to the master craftsman at the crafting table." Musket Factory by North White, on Flickr Musket Factory by North White, on Flickr Musket Factory by North White, on Flickr Musket Factory by North White, on Flickr "And the musket is assembled." Musket Factory by North White, on Flickr "Then we just package them." Musket Factory by North White, on Flickr Musket Factory by North White, on Flickr "You see, we run an efficient and productive factory here in Jameston. And now that we're operational..." Agnes cut the foreman off. Musket Factory by North White, on Flickr "Now that the factory is operational, I can put you out of your misery and put one of Mordo's men in charge." Said Agnes, with a rare smile. "Did you just pull those out of the box there? Because those aren't loaded..." The foreman said calmly. Musket Factory by North White, on Flickr "Damnit." FIN Thanks for viewing my latest factory! I hope to get one more out before the month ends. I'll take my 200 Dbs, thank you. C&C appreciated. I hope this is accurate enough for musket production. I'm not entirely sure how the barrels were made, so that part might be a bit off.
  23. Location: Kings Harbor Type: Minichallege The End of the Cocovia Wagon was in Kings Harbour, built by the WTC, who had first dibs on unloading their ships. Loading dock by North White, on Flickr The WTC Beacon sat docked next to the pier, a boarding ramp attached. Loading dock by North White, on Flickr The Crew looked on in confusion. "How is this more effieicent then just sailing around the island?" Asked the lookout. "Look at my hat!" Said the first mate Loading dock by North White, on Flickr Loading dock by North White, on Flickr The multi car horse drawn carriage was loaded, and drawn away, off to quinsville Loading dock by North White, on Flickr FIN Thanks for viewing my entry to the railway. It's 48x48, or 2,304 studs. Most of which is water. And a prebuilt ship. So, uh, if it doesn't qualify, I'll understand. C&C appreciated!
  24. Named after a bird following the ship since shortly after it was put into service, the "Cranky Parrot" is a small vessel built for trade. Despite its unarguably grumpy character, the parrot has always brought luck to its namesake, which is currently sailing to Mesabi Landing. Soon to be under the command of the WTC, the "Cranky Parrot" might need all the luck it can get. Multiple elements can be removed: The anchor chain can be released.... ... and also be re-attached. ========================================================================================================= This will be my free class 2. I used a cog as a reference. The "blocky" design with this one is intentional, I will work with hinges and smoother hulls with other ships. @Mesabi: This will soon be nominally under WTC control. We have discussed this, just give the orders.
  25. Location: Belson Tags: Ship Having been launched and loaded, the WTC Judgement Sat majestically in Belson's harbour. WTC Judgement by North White, on Flickr On the Bow were four chase guns, ready to blow the hell out of anything that tried to escape. WTC Judgement by North White, on Flickr The Figurehead held the scales of justice, and a sword, ready to judge all that crossed the WTC WTC Judgement by North White, on Flickr The Judgement was crewed by the WTC's finest, the WTC elites. WTC Judgement by North White, on Flickr She was captained by Captain Gage, a veteran of the Juniper Wars, and a staunch supporter of the WTC. WTC Judgement by North White, on Flickr The Ship had both a captain's cabin and a map room, each lit my large stained glass windows. WTC Judgement by North White, on Flickr And she was ready to take to the seas.... FIN Well, thanks for viewing my latest build. I haven't had a lot of time lately, and I've spent it touching up this fine ship. She also has a fairly decent interior as well, but I lack the parts to properly furnish it. In game, she has 20 cannons, though I only have 12 ATM. Maybe I'll spend more dough so she can be more accurate. Hmmmm..... I also need to add the sails, I just wanted to get this up for the time being. The Judgement is a Class 7 and her stats are: Range =4 Maneuver =2 Firepower =8 Crew =5 Cargo =1 Hull =7 Total Used =27 @Bregir tried to make me make her more accurate, but he failed, and I kinda just made it how I wanted. Overall, I'm very happy with how she turned out, and I can't wait to build another one. I can in no way, shape or form license or operate this ship, so I think she'll be the story only ship of Agnes. But I'm not sure, as if I build a couple large factories, I could probably afford her.
