Eurobrick Guild of Historica Challenge 3: Quest for the Fire Crystal
About this creation
After learning the wish of the High King to find the fire crystal, Lord of Lava started his own search.
Where could the fire crystal be? Such a powerful magical artifact must have some effect on the environment. Lord of Lava decides to consult his trusty friend, the Spirit of Lava.
"My most trustworthy friend, tell me, is there anywhere in Nocturnus that the flow of lava is irregular or perhaps 'disturbed'." - Lord of Lava
"Ah, yesssss. There is a place deep deep down below The Kelra Labyrinths. A place where the flow of lava is most peculiar. Demon's Pillar as we call it..." - the Spirit of Lava
As the Spirit vanishes in the air, a vision of Demon's Pillar is left in front of Lord of Lava.
The Kelra Labyrinths is a large and complex multilayer maze. To find a place deep down inside would take a large number of manpower. Quickly Lord of Lava summons a sizable group of his elite worriers, Aba, Bata, Gala... and sends them out to find the mythical fire crystal.
Aba is the first one to depart. He...
(*** Fast forward - due to lack of time and general laziness ***)
Zata finally found the fabled Demon's Pillar after months inside the Labyrinths feeding on lizards and the likes. He is equipped with the "Infinity Chain", which can extend infinitely to help him find his way around the Labyrinths.
Zata quickly spots the Fire Crystal. It sits on top of the pillar.
Zata takes out his "Infinity Chain" and climbs his way up the pillar.
"GROAAAAAAAAAAR!" Suddenly he heard an earth-shaking roar! A gigantic lava worm breaks out of one of the other path leading to the pillar
Of course, Zata comes prepared. He swiftly grabs the fire crystal and...
takes out the "Axe of Eternal Ice", which he "borrowed" from some Mitgardia "friend"
The magical Axe summons large ice bolts and temporarily pins down the lava worm
In the meantime, Zata escapes from the dungeon and returns the fire crystal to the Lord of Lava. And the fire crystal is once again found in the land of Historica.
IN-CRED-ible. An INSTANT addition to my Epic Folder! Hard to know what precisely to say: the blend of elements, a ridiculously long Laundry List of NPU creds, the STYLE, the careful artistry shown in the colorscheme preservation. THIS, good MOCers, is why I won't spread out into Vigs/Dios: there are already too many of you EPIC CREATORS out there, showing us how it's done. CHEERS!!! 5/5 (til they allow 1000/1000's)AMAZING!
Hey Li Li! You may or may not have known this, but the Elite Mechaniers group now has a forum for everyone to communicate on. We would love to have you over there. Here's our link, hope to see you! http://elitemechaniers.forumotion.com/
Simply amazing. The detail is spell-binding. Love the pillar. All the sharp pieces that you used really give it a sinister effect. The lavafall works well, and I especially love the overall evil look of this MOC. Reminds me of something out of Mordor. Great work as always.
Wow this is incredible!....just wow! I love everything about this and I love how the light reflects off of the trans orange to cause the black walls on the sides to reflect the orange as if the lava is actually glowing (best seen on the pic with Zata standing on the edge) I'd give it a 6/5 if i could!
the detailing on this model is absolutely ridiculous. and that's absolutely incredible, but the model's size and basic concept alone makes it a masterpiece. this thing deserves ten times as many "likes" as it has.
Amazing! There is so much to say about this MOC, one of which is, you definitely captured the mythological feel, along with suspense mixed in there too! Sort of reminds me a bit of Lord of the Rings. Great Job!
I just had to pick up my jaw! this moc is amazing, the detail is stunning, the choice of colours very effective. I can almost feel the heat.
The time this must have taken to build, I just can't imagine having that much patience.
I think i need some words here. Give me a moment.....no im stunned, this is just so beauyiful, i like everybit of it, but especialy the rock surroundings, and the small entrances within, and the lava-fall is awesome to, (i cant say lava waterfall hehe)
and the worm is just outstanding, i love that huge monster, and the story is awesome to, and the whole feel you get about this moc, that you are in a lavafilled cave, you really made that feeling feel real, awesome job, (where did you get that "magical axe" from ???
