This is an entry to the current Universal Challenge. This MOC has some big achievements that it has made (at this point in time). It is my first build that involves a castle-ish building, it is my first time I did rockwork (I love BrickLink so much), it has the most pictures, and it has the most minifigures. Enjoy!
It was the last day before the meeting at Heartfire Inn. It was getting really hard to stay hidden from the Mythron and Rainesian patrols who were searching for outlaws. Because Bodus is outlaw headquarters, the guards were stationed most heavily there. Thankfully, not many people have been caught yet.
I had gone off a path a while ago and I just came to a shack that has some gold lying around. I reached down to grab some but was stopped by a vaguely familiar voice.
"Come with me, outlaw scum." I wondered where I had heard that voice and why that armor was so familiar.
Two more men stepped up behind him, one on his left and one on his right. Then I remembered why all this was so familiar. These were the Mythron Paladins! Mythron Paladins were the best three warriors in all of Mythron. The reason why I knew these men, except the one on the right, was because before I was accused of murder, I was one of them.
I was second in command, only to Paul. The other one of us was Joshua. He always seemed jealous of my position over him and I sometimes think he was the one who accused me of murder.
As soon as Joshua saw me, I saw confusion and frustration in his face. "There Nick is! Kill that traitor!" He said. I knew that no one except me was around so that meant my name must be Nick. It does have a familiar ring to it. After Joshua said that, Paul, Joshua, and the other man started running at me. I ran in the other direction and up the hill.
I reached a flat spot on the hill near the top. I found a ruined building that I assumed must be one of the many meeting places of the outlaws. I ran up the steps and found a dwarf inside.
While trying not to pant too hard, I said to the dwarf "Mythronian soldiers are coming for both of us. Let's fight back!" The dwarf grunted, and took a defensive position.
The Mythronian Paladins, a Mythronian and Rainesian archers, and Rainesian soldiers came and surrounded the building. Paul ran up the stairs but Joshua decided just to climb up the rocks.
Paul walked through the entrance and said "Come with us or we will kill you."
There was a clashing of swords and two people jumped up behind the dwarf and me. A voice said "We disagree with that."
I didn't have time to figure out who these people were. One of the men who jumped behind us defended the dwarf and the other engaged the other Paladin in battle. I could now see that the voice was a man clad in a grey cloak, similar to my own. He was attacked by Paul. Joshua started to charge at me and I threw my dagger at him, knowing if I missed, it would come back to me. Joshua dodged the knife and I drew my sword and blocked with it.
A few seconds into the fight, I noticed the new Paladin had stopped attacking and was jumping out of the building. I saw an opening in my own fight and attacked Joshua. He was hurt in his sword arm and he dropped his weapon.
Joshua decided the other Paladin had a good idea and he jumped out the way he came in.
Paul saw he was losing his battle and with no other allies with him, he ran past his opponent and fled.
"Thank you for helping us!" I said. "Who are you?" "I am James." The man in grey said. "These men are all except me Nerogues."
"This on my left is Samuel and on my right is David. Both valiant warriors."
"This here is Bob. He has emotional paralysis so his his face is frozen with joy. He is a wonderful swordsman and archer all the same." "I am Nick, I guess. To be honest, I had forgotten my name until just a few minutes ago. I used to be one of the Mythronian Paladins but I was accused of murder and had be become an outlaw." I said. "Are you here for the meeting at Heartfire Inn?" I asked James. "I am. I assume you are too." He said.
As we were walking out, Samuel said to me "Do you want to be a Neroguian, Nick?" "Thanks, but no thanks. I still am with Mythron, if they are willing to accept me back. May we all meet again." After saying that, I walked back to Heartfire Inn.
Whew, that was a lot. Here are some bonus pictures of the scenes figless.
I actually was inspired to build this shack when I saw Mister Lego's shack in his Universal Challenge entry.
This was very good! I definitely liked the abandoned fortress thing! Awesome! Cool adding the new group "Nerogue" in there! Once the next universal challenge is up, then people can finally join Nerogue! (yay!) Very cool story!
