This is my entry for Round 2 of the MOC Olympics in the category 'Whateverscape'. You've seen the real title, but my alternative title is 'Guy-Jumping-Off-A-Cliffscape', or just Cliffscape. The other one, though colorful, is a bit too wordy. It started out as a cliff, then the rest was added in.
I remember it like it was yesterday... This was back when Hadron Industries was first starting out. They'd had an incident with a teleportation experiment, and they were trying to round up all the survivors. One, a psychologist who'd been offering counseling to one of the Insertion Team members, had been giving them a pretty tough time. They say he was called 'Geoffrey Wilson'. He'd barely escaped the research facility, and had made it to the cliffs. We had helicopter footage of the Disaster Response Team closing in on him, when he did the unthinkable. He'd just killed one of the DRT troopers with a monkey wrench, and the others were almost on him. He jumped. No one ever saw him come up, but because of his public ordeal he's become a symbol to the resistance fighters. To this day Hadron Industries' workers can sometimes be found with wounds that could only have been administered by a wrench...
Well, Ribbits, I haven't been able to locate a round 2 post from your opponent (other judges please correct me if I'm mistaken). So you may move on by forfeit if that turns out to be the case. Meanwhile, a nice little MOC with some good action. Well done!
For the most part, those are just defaced bricks. There are one or two megabloks/other clone brand bricks in there, but the vast majority are just 1xwhatever parts that have had something done to them. I'm not entirely sure what, it could have been sharpie or just age.
The water is MegaBlocks!!! You can tell because if you look closely that there are two different shades of blue in the water and my friend was over this morning and he said that he found a blue Megablock and you can tell it's off shade from a Lego block. Furthermore the darker blue bricks do not look like a normal Lego brick because a MegaBlock brick has their corners rounded as a Lego brick is square!~Nicky

Nice tree, but cliff looks even better :D.that guy who jumped off the cliff remindes me on Gordon from half life series. And you even made a short story about this diorama.... very nice.
Thank you, he was meant to be parody/reference to Gordon. And thanks to everyone, I'm really happy with how it turned out! This was the first MOC to be a pain in the rear though. That cliff was unwilling to be finished.
