The story will read with the text above each picture. Enjoy!
...the war between Mythron and Rainos broke out at the Battle of Unbinding. Now, I am a self-employed spy, Ranger, and diplomat, with no connections to anyone at the moment. After the King died in the battle,
it seemed like all the people I knew turned their backs on me.
I knew something was fishy with Bartok, but I couldn't pinpoint what it was. I spotted two of his men out on the road and I overheard something about heavy war training.
My mind was in a blur.
I really knew something was up when Bartok sent me a letter saying he couldn't meet with me that day when we had an appointment to talk together at Guaire.
I went and told the King and asked him to talk with Bartok. The King took my advice, went to Guaire, and spoke with Bartok.
When I asked the King how his trip went, he seemed discouraged and upset. He said something about Bartok built a castle somewhere in the center of Rainos for when the King would go and visit Bartok. I knew my vacation was coming soon, and asked the King if I should stay for a while longer and help sort things out with Bartok.
The King said no, so he let me go on my vacation.
That was the last time I saw him.
When I returned from my vacation 3 weeks later, I found Mythron distraught and confused, and learned that the Barbarians rebelled against the King and Mythron, and that the King was no longer alive.
I tried to help sort things out, but people started blaming me for leaving, saying I could have prevented something or another.
In one week, I traveled to each major city of Mythron trying to gather information, but was met with the same result - the blame game.
Unfortunately, I was shut away from people's conversations and trust, so I packed my things and bought some supplies from Carthal, left the big cities of Mythron, my home for so many years, and went off into the unknown.
After a few day of traveling, I found the perfect spot.
From here, I will go out whenever necessary to buy supplies, gather information on what happened during the three weeks that I was gone.
Because of my experience in stealth, I will continue my spying throughout Mythron to gather information.
I have decided to leave Mythron for a while, maybe for good. I feel rejected for nothing, and I feel that Mythron isn't handling the situation well. Someone knows, but no one is telling. I don't know why the Barbarians attacked. Sure, I don't agree with some of the laws of Mythron, but I think Mythron is a the best place to live. Maybe now, it's not.
END OF STORY
The last few pictures are of some of the builds in this MOC. I hope you enjoyed the story!
I used a Black light in order for the flames to glow. Here is the one picture without the black light on the fire.
Here is the tree at the campsite where Darvainian stays. It was blurry, so I didn't add it to the story, but I wanted to show you the other cool feature of the tree somewhere.
Here is the set-up for the canceled meeting near the city of Guaire. I'm pleased with how it turned out for the picture.
Here is the palace room I made.
These next three photos are about the markets in the cities of Mythron.
The people in the market. Notice most of them are frowning.
FNJ's comments: I had lots of fun building the parts to this story! I played around with some photo editing using GIMP. I think the photos turned out well :D I plan to use GIMP more often now that I have a better understanding of how to those functions it has.
Dude the editing was amazing and the builds were awesome to. Welcome to LOM and if you could do me a huge favor and comment and favorite my Decisive Action Builds I would be grateful! I need some points I have powerful enemy sitting on my border!

Excellent stuff. The fire is fantastic
Thank you! I wanted to make a more realistic fire. It was quite fun to make! Once you put the black light close enough to the flames, they will really glow and let out the orange-red light that real fire does! I'm glad you like it! :D

Awesome! The first few pics are blurry, but the builds are fantastic! The fire is awesome too :)
Yeah, I don't know why the second picture was blurry....the camera couldn't seem to find anything with the dark tree....I'll have to find the small tripod and see if that helps - the big tripod can't get close enough to the scene.

You might want to build a rig to hold your camera steady with your extra pieces,
I agree, the setting I tried using was flower - it seemed to focus on one thing and then blur the rest....but for most of the pictures it worked well. Some just went random. I need to find the mini tripod :/ Right now I just have a large tripod - which doesn't work for getting close up pictures. Thanks!
All of the builds were well-done, and the GIMP looked pretty smooth. You might want to build a rig to hold your camera steady with your extrapieces, though- I made one for my camera phone and it really helps keep the image sharp. I really liked the camp's centerpiece, even without the black light. I can see why you're called the FIRE Ninja Jedi.
