Sir Derith sets out to terminate a dark power rising in the heart of the Enchanted Forest. He is accompanied by his loyal companions, Nills the Dwarf, Alexandra the shield maiden.
Our heroic trio visits the Elven queen to seek aid in their quest. No one knows the Enchanted forest better than the elves.
With the aid of the wood elves, Sir Derith and his Companions were able to reach the ruins of an ancient temple in the Enchanted Forest. There, a dark sorceress had begun to raise an army of undead knights (SO original! :P).
In all truth I'm not really happy with how any of these scenes turned out, not my best work by far. But at least I got one good entry into the CCC (my castle) and I hope to do more next year. Maybe Blake will teach me the art of speed building :P
Very nice entry, Ru! I think I may have liked your castle entry a bit better but it is still very cool. I like the first shot's forced perspective it looks really great. I also like the elven throne room. Have a merry Christmas!
Ru, this is still very cool for the them you went into. It is not as big and mammoth as the castle you built, but I don't feel like you left anything important out or hurried anything up. It has a clean feel to it, with unique characters and good clean shots of it, I think that qualifies as a winner! As for rushing, I know how you feel! I got one in and I am wrapping up entry #2 over the next 2 days to try and get it in there....
Brilliant.This is some fine work.A short and slightly cliched story but a good MOC with great details.I especially like the forced perspective in the first scene and the use of an native american head in the second.I understand what you mean about Blake and feel that most castle MOCers feel the same.With my brick link order for Christmas I should have an entry in the three days after.I wish you the best of look in the CCC and a Merry CHRISTMAS!!!!!~Bourbon
In each scene you have nice details, like the micro tower in the first, the arches and towers, and the gutted pig. I felt that they were like a snapshot of a larger part of the story and, at the end, I was left wanting more. Maybe you could build on the tale in the future, at a less hectic time then the CCC. I too am struggling with my contest entries and mine probably won't turn out any better. Though this entry is nothing to sneeze at.

I won't lie; this is not a winning entry. But there is only one winner and even though your entry is great, only one awesome entry will win. But it's always good to have a reason to build.
I completely agree. I had much bigger plans for this category, but time limits reduced the grandeur I had forseen.
