This is my entry into the Amalgam category for the MOCathalon for the team Triangulate This!
Meet the Troll Guard. A Fantasy and Coast Guard mix.
About this creation
I'm Chuff, the captain of the Troll Guard. We used to be at war with the kingdom, until the larger trolls mutinied. After that they started tossing knights into the river. With their heavy armor, they would sink rather quickly. The King thought it would be best to create a rescue team.
While we can do night operations, the flame from the torch always goes up instead of straight forward. Weird, huh?
Yeah we've actually saved 3 knights in the past 5 years. We lost ~30, but you know it just goes that way sometimes. We drop a barrel for the knights to grab onto when we're in our raft.
Our whirly bird is the pride of our fleet though. Named the King Arthur we have the ability to rescue knights from the air when our raft can't reach 'em.
Our rescue diver chucks the tub into the water for the knight to get into.
I'm Ted the rescue swimmer. It's not all roses for us out here on the street. As the rescue swimmer, I sometimes get shot at. It's a hard knock life for us.
Ted: "Archers off the port!"
Archers: "To hell with this evil witch craft!!"
Ted: "We're NOT witches you twit!!"
I dunno, I guess they just don't understand the concept of us flying. To be honest, neither do we.
"Yeah they rescued me last year. Am I thankful? NO!! I JUMPED into the river. Have YOU ever been married to a nagging wife?!"
And there you have it. The Troll Guard keeping the kingdom's waterway safe from death......sometimes. Would we ever guard the ocean? HA!!! The earth is flat you fool! You couldn't catch us near the ocean, we'd be afraid to fall off the edge!!
Comments: Teams are still trying to climb their way to the top......Triangulate This is NOT going down without a fight!
