About this creation
LOM UC: The Travelers (Main)

Stefan stepped back and admired the work he and the other workers had just finished. "Well, it certainly looks convincing. If I didn't know, I'd think it was just a regular watermill. Still, you sure we can defend it if they do happen to figure out that it's an outpost?"



LOM UC: The Travelers (2)

It was another hot, muggy day in Santuario. Stefan had been surprised to see the jungle environment of Enalica instead of the more moderate climates of Rainos upon stepping ashore from his long voyage. Only later did he learn that the captain had decided to change the destination, in hopes of procuring gold for himself.

Stefan and a few other Mythronians he met in Enalica had spent the last few weeks building a Mythronian outpost disguised as a watermill. A good ploy, Stefan figured, but he was unsure whether it would be enough to allow them to fend off attackers once they were inevitably discovered.



LOM UC: The Travelers (3)

"Like I said, Stefan: there will be no one discovering its true purpose. The men don't come in large groups, anyway; we can easily pick off a couple men not expecting battle."

"And then what? They don't return. Any others that knew they're out here come here looking for them. Eventually, we're discovered. Dead."



LOM UC: The Travelers (4)

"Wel-" The man began to reply but stopped at a glimpse of movement. He readied his bow and hid behind the water wheel, preparing to fire.

Stefan shielded his eyes from the bright sun as he looked carefully at the approaching figure. "It's okay, it's a Nerogueian."



LOM UC: The Travelers (5)

The man walked over to Stefan. "Working at a watermill, eh? Nice to see some more practical buildings going up in this jungle - all I've seen is outposts.
"I suppose I should introduce myself - the name's Destrian. What'd yours be?"

"Call me Stefan," the businessman replied, "and this is an outpost in disguise. We're hoping we aren't discovered."

"I think you're safe here - I haven't run into any mischief yet today."

Stefan looked down at the ground, tired. "It seems like there's no rest. First I have to give bribes, then I have to go to Rainos. And when I finally get there - yippee, I didn't get there; I'm on this miserable island instead. I was hoping I'd get away from all the stress of a business life - instead I'm stuck here, trying to protect some gold. It never ends."

"You're not the only one with your problems, Stefan. Look, my cousin's going to investigate some disappearances in some random town. I don't know if he's safe, if something's happened to him...Every day, I wonder whether I'll receive a letter, telling me that he died since I wasn't there to save him. Do you have anyone in your life that you love, that you are truly close to?"



LOM UC: The Travelers (6)

Stefan thought for a moment. "I have no friends. I live to stay alive. I've made enemies with the wrong people, and as a result I have to be dishonest and unjust to survive."

"You can't live your life alone. If you have so much stress - why not find someone to help you?"

"You mean -"

"There's many people in this land like you. People with responsibilities. People with worries, people with troubles. Troubles like yours can't be solved alone. But with someone to help you..."

Stefan realized what Destrian was hinting at. "We need to form an organization - a guild - of these people. Alone we might not be able to do everything we need to, but together we have strength."

This was a pretty satisfying quick(ish) build. The hardest part by far was the extremely fragile waterwheel; the plates near the bottom are tilted by wedging levers in between the plates.

Other than that, this was mainly an experiment with hinged ground, dense foliage, and good water (which I finally have the pieces for!). I like how the angled beams on the building turned out, too.

LOM UC: The Travelers (8)

I didn't get lazy on the landscape beneath the foliage either:

Thanks for viewing!

Quoting David . Another question to go off of Bricks - Can moss and grime grow on a newly built outpost that fast?
Quoting Halhi 141 Thanks Mark! Stefan and his crew were trying to make it look old to make it convincing - who knows, maybe they put the moss there themselves...

Quoting ~ Brick One question....if Stefan just finished building the outpost, should there not be left over materials and tools? :P
"just finished" doesn't mean he finished it a few minutes ago. It could mean a few hours ago, or something.

Looking Great! Not sure why that guy is standing so weird when he comes out from behind the water-wheel, but anywho... I really want to make something with white wash in it now, but it seems to be maybe a bit too popular... The foliage is great, and the landscaping doesn't dissapoint. Well done!

Black Hammer, Fear Rises, An Unexpected Meeting and Pursuit all use rather different styles of masonry. (Fear Rises is definitely a departure from your usual, even if it isn't a major one. :P) This is the first large-scale one that uses your main style in some time. That's all I meant. :P

Wonderful work here, Halhi! The story came out much better than I thought it would, although how I'm going to tie in this guild with my main character is gunna be hard. The build is fantastic- the house is great (as always), and those diagonal beams are great. The waterwheel, as well as the water, both add a lot to the scene and are masterfully built. The foliage is also good, but something seems to be missing. Color, perhaps? Anyways, good work here.

Quoting Kai Bernstein
Quoting Halhi 141 Thanks! I personally don't see much difference between this and my usual masonry (not sure what you'd call my usual - my last four builds with stonework all featured pretty different styles...) though... And yeah, I guess that river is definitely a keeper :P
2013 Triathlon R2, Tourney R4, LOM UC Persuasion, Tourney R5 and this one all feature the sameish style. You've branched off a few times, but this is the one you've done the most of and the one anyone (I should hope) can recognize you by.
What I meant is that Fear Rises also uses pretty much the same style, meaning that only Black Hammer Inn (which I really hope nobody uses as definition of my "usual build" :P) and An Unexpected Meeting (which I threw together in a couple hours, meaning that I'm not at all pleased with how it turned out) use different styles...

Quoting Gilbert Despathens The build is absolutely awesome. I don't have any critiques at the moment, so I'll talk about something else. You said Stefan will probably be your primary character after you switch factions and become the new leader of Rainos, right? Well, I'm the old leader of Rainos, my character's name is Ste/ven/ and just take a look at the first head I gave him... Coincidence? Probably.
That's funny, I didn't even think about that.

Quoting Kai Bernstein I like this simple(ish) build quite a lot, actually. It harkens back to your older style of masonry but looks no worse off because of it. Great work all around, and I particularly like the river - it has this very robust feel to it.

Quoting Mr. Cab Nice! The angled landscaping is interesting, I might have to try that...
Thanks! This was my third experiment with that (I included it subtly in the Black Hammer Inn, although nobody noticed)
Quoting David FNJ The texturing here is very nice! The hinged landscape is nice, though kinda useless since it can't be seen in the pictures with the foliage. Still, without the foliage it is great!
Thanks! And yeah, I know, I didn't think about that until after I had already finished the hinging...
