The Dragon's Breath . This is the ship and two of the baseplates I made for a collaborative at BrickMagic that Ru and Annie Corder, Danny Holland, and Chris Stone participated in. .

The Dragon's Breath's gallant skipper, Tarven Collus, stands proudly before his powerful ship. The vessel previously belonged to his father, a fisherman on the jagged Serpent Coast, where having a swift vessel was of extreme importance, both for evading the titular water serpents of the coast, and for chasing down quick-moving fish quarries. Tarven inherited the boat and now uses it to shuttle adventurers in situations that a less stalwart skipper would blanch at.
Now for some individual pictures of the boat...
A front view.
A side view.
You know, I'm pretty sure I can stop telling you which side of the boat you're viewing. I'll just start telling jokes instead.
So a guy walks into a bar, and, having his taste buds set, orders a bowl of chili. The bartender tells him that the man beside him got the last bowl, but the bowl was full and the man who ordered it was just sitting in front of it, so the guy asks him for it. The other man said that sure, he could have it, so he passes it over, and the man begins to eat. About halfway through the bowl, his spoon touches something tough and large. He looks down into the bowl to see a large dead rat curled up in the chili. He throws up into the bowl, disgusted, and the man beside him says, "Yeah, that's about as far as I got, too."
Here's the hatch to the rowing deck.
And a picture of the rowing deck.
And a last shot of Tarven Collus behind the helm of his fine ship, sailing away.
Well, this post is certainly late, being over two months after the actual event, but as I had to leave early on Sunday, the last day of the convention, and did not want to take my creations home, leaving awkward empty patches, Danny Holland took them back to his house and I was unable to pick them up until two days ago. On the topic of the convention, I will not make a whole recap post like two of the other collaborative members did, but I will say that it was great fun, and doing a collaborative is far more enjoyable than displaying on one's own, especially with a group like we had.
Thanks for looking!
