LOM Order of Bartok Rank Challenge: The Black Knight Tavern
The Black Knight Tavern is a public house set on a height near the Iremore, the capital of Rainos. King Bartok founded it as a place of rest and gathering for the warriors of Rainos.
About this creation
In October, I promised to treat the defenders of Rainos who fought against the Mythronian invasion to cake on the shores of Rainos. Complications arose and ensued, so I have not been able to fulfill my vow until now. Welcome to the official victory celebration and thanks to the people who kept Rainos free!

Outside the Black Knight Tavern

As soon as it was clear that the tyranny of Mythron had gained no foothold on the shores of Rainos, invitations flew from the royal castle and both drink and entertainment climbed to the Black Knight Tavern above Iremore.

Outside the Black Knight Tavern

King Bartok I, owner of the establishment, was the next to arrive in his finest suit of armor. Close behind him was Lord Hector Darkbeard, Archdruid of Hadran.

Outside the Black Knight Tavern

"Hector! It is wonderful to see you. It's been months since we last met."

"I can see that you're trying to win your country with drink where trickery failed. When I heard the news, I had to catch the first dragon headed this way. By the way, the Troynan's new Imperator sends his regards. Anyone else make it yet?"

"No, most of the heroes are still on the coast. We have some time before they can reach the party."

Outside the Black Knight Tavern

~~~Jacob Pennington, Honorary Rainosian~~~

Sure enough, the first did not arrive until winter was underway... but when people did start to arrive, they came in a flood.

"Mayor Jaldor, I presume? Thank you for defending Red Sands; if ever you wish to renounce your Outlaw past, we will be only too willing to accept you. But, I heard you were in Carthal for the Tourney - how did you get here?"

"Thank you, your Highness, but I have unfinished business in Mythron. As for our presence here, it was a simple matter for my friend, Gorbus, to use our transport stone to bring me and several others from Carthal."

Outside the Black Knight Tavern

"Claudia, Gorbus, welcome to Iremore. It's always a pleasure to meet someone else in the trade."

Outside the Black Knight Tavern

~~~Toa Infernum, Lord of Guaire~~~

A dangerous-looking man followed Jaldor's Crimson Knights along the path.

"Your Majesty, Rego Arian at your service."

"It is good to meet you at last, Lord Arian. I have heard only the best news of your army and its exploits. Welcome to Iremore."

"It's my pleasure to escape Carthal. The master of my Tourney guild, George Marshall, is trying to make the lot of us wear the most ridiculous uniforms."

"Speaking of Marshall, didn't we send him an invitation as well?"

"He received it, but seeing as he was fighting for the other side in the invasion, he elected not to come."

"It appears that we underestimated his intelligence by a small amount. Thank you, Lord Arian."

Outside the Black Knight Tavern

~~~Adam Brunsting, General of the Dragon Clan~~~

"Hello, your Majesty."

"You've grown since the last time I saw you, Spine. How goes the campaign?"

"We had some mix-ups due to Mythronian lies, but we made it through. Everything slows down in the winter, I fear."

"That's why it's the best time for merrymaking, my lad. Enjoy the party."



In response to general complaints, here is an improved version of Spine complete with the proper classic smiley face.

Outside the Black Knight Tavern

After General Spine's Dragon Knights followed him in, no fresh faces arrived for several days until...

Outside the Black Knight Tavern

~~~Sean B., Citizen of Rainos~~~

"Well, what are you waiting for, lad? Knock on the door and ask if this is the way to Bourne! What with all of these map changes, I can't tell left from right anymore."

Last of the BKT

No sooner had the younger man knocked than the door was opened by King Bartok, who seemed to recognize the old knight.

"My gods! It can't be - Sir Maxwell?"

"Yes, and who are you? The King of Mythron?"

"Rainos, actually... but what are you doing here? I thought you must be dead."

"Not dead, betrayed. Jackson and I were heading for Bourne, but if your Majesty has free drink, we might as well stop in."

More of the Black Knight Tavern

~~~The Lost Epic, Honorary Rainosian~~~

Bartok spotted a girl in armor coming up the path behind the knight and his follower.

"You would be Kailash the Outlaw, I imagine?" he asked.

"In person," she answered. "It was difficult to make it here - do you have something against Outlaws in Rainos?"

"Not as such, no, but we don't react well to anyone wearing Mythronian armor. Feel free to stop by the Royal Armory to be fitted for a new one - it's the least we can do for your services."

Outside the Black Knight Tavern

~~~That Guy You Saw Earlier, Rainosian Adventurer~~~

The next day, a party of warriors arrived at the inn.

"Vemados of the Shadow Allegiance and company, reporting for off-duty!" the leader declared.

"Not the entrance I was expecting from a member of the stealth clan, but welcome all the same! Maybe your Masked leader will impress us when he arrives," Bartok laughed.

Untitled

~~~Caleb R., Ruler of Enalica~~~

"Er, your Majesty, the Masked is already here. We think he came down the chimney."

"Oh..."

More of the Black Knight Tavern

As the days passed, more and more Rainosians arrived to celebrate their continued independence. Ibers from Falmore, William the Scarred and his orcs...

Untitled

...delegates of the MacFiercest clan...

Outside the Black Knight Tavern

~~~Gilbert Despathens, King of Rainos and Captain of the Krak

...and finally Cedric the Bull came to the door of the Black Knight Tavern.

"G'day, your Maj., I'm here for the drinks."

"You're late as usual, Lord Cedric, but I'm glad you made it."

"Yeah, we didn't get the letter until last week thanks to some half-wit Dragon bloke in a furry hat, but we sailed right over on the clan's new flagship. Which reminds me, the man you wanted to knight is right here behind me."

Outside the Black Knight Tavern

"So you are Steven Georgeson, the soldier who helped Rego hold the seas and before that fought for the Ibers in Falmore, alongside the Dragons against Ironknuckles and in many battles for your own clan. It will be my pleasure to bestow a knighthood upon you."

"Thanks. It would be my equal pleasure to have a quick dismissal from service and a young retirement back home, but you know what my lord Cedric says about that..."

"Well, I'm sure we wouldn't want to displease Lord Cedric. We will hold the ceremony this afternoon, as soon as you are rested."





So that's how I move up to the Order of Bartok and earn Ambassador status in the Lands of Mythron and, more importantly, how the King thanked his loyal supporters for their parts in September's invasion. My next build (if all goes well) will be the actual interior of the Black Knight, and not only will it include the cake, but it might also promote me one more rank if it doesn't match the January UC. In the meantime, please enjoy a small hole in the fourth wall.

Untitled

The "tavern" started with a gable I built while distracting myself from the monstrosity of the interior. I was trying to figure out other ways to use dark tan masonry bricks, and I ended up with the best roof I have ever made. The rest followed from there, fueled by other parts of my first Bricklink order ever.

Isn't stained glass wonderful?

Masonry bricks are useful for almost everything... except, arguably, masonry.

This is my favorite shot of all, and a good place to end.

This might be the most extreme example of Tárdis syndrome that I've seen :P

Quoting Sean B Haha. I've only just discovered this! I completely forgot you were going to do a celebration MOC after the Mythronian attack. I like that you even included the face in the back of Sir Maxwell's neck. Brilliant.
Thanks! I was a little slow, but I came through. The appearance of Sir Maxwell's second face was accidental, but I'll take credit for it anyway.

No problem. I was just wondering, but thanks for telling me and thanks for the comment.

Quoting Lindel Baskin That door is very clever. The roof is wonderfully done, and the the building as a whole is great as well. Nice texturing throughout the MOC. My only complaint would be that the rockwork seems a bit flat in places, but that may have been intentional. Fantastic build, Gilbert!
Thank you. The rocks aren't perfect because I was trying a new technique, but failure is part of experimentation and comments like these help me recognize where I need to improve. Thanks again, Lindel.

Quoting George Marshall I could kinda see it from the eyes. Man, I am showing up in a lot of your MOCs recently! Perhaps I should include you in some of mine? Hmm?
Sounds good. I have plenty of avatars running around; you can abuse any of them.

Quoting George Marshall Bro, if I had known it was a party I totally would have gone! Great job nonetheless! ;)
Whoops. I'm sorry - I suppose King Bartok had your sense of valorous discretion down perfectly. At least you still made it in some form - you can't see it, but the jester in the first picture sports a familiar goatee. ; )

Quoting Adam Brunsting Awesome build, though I am not sure how spine got there. It must be an imposter! I know his hair is black! This mans is brown! No classic smiley! No awesome super old cape! I declare him an imposter! Spine is in carthal, and the rest of the gang are near Tomeu! Perhaps teleportation was invented for a few minutes and then got dis invented...
I pretended that you hitched a ride with Jaldor and his teleport stone. As for the smiley face, I just happened to receive one two days ago... one day after I posted the MOC. The brown hairpiece remains elusive.

Quoting Freeling ++ Well, I think I'm justified in attacking you. I was forced to.
Your character was forced to, but you made the person who made your character attack Rainos make your character attack Rainos, making you, indirectly, the person who made your character attack Rainos and the person who should make amends with Rainos before Rainos makes you an ally. ; )

First you would have to make up for attacking us in the UCMA, but you're welcome to switch to the side of cake.
