ALTA-5 has many industries,
to ensure profits, technological advantage,
some corps have no problem resolving to spies.
ninja types, or disciplines
are the most common,
in this industrial espionnage buisness.
but, there are also courriers,
men with location information about
the secret envelopes,
they provide transport,
and it s not a safe job,
but, it s a very lucrative one.
men brave enough to 'pick up' the challenge,
have to travel long distances,
with unexact maps, or infos,
and be prepared to be attacked,
as often, information is already 'undisclosed'
and other factions, or corps are on it too!
the 'prefered' type of vehicle
is the motorcycle,
since the 'trend' is enveloppes [lego letters]
they don t need a big vehicle,
faster is better!
not stoping at gas station also helps.
the distances are generally
a few hours at most,
so, no motels either,
all terrain is a +
the courriers are armed with assorted weapons;
guns, dinamite, hatchets, knives,
anything they can hide, or hold in 1 hand,
needing the other to drive.
HOW IT STARTS
they meet 'the man with the enveloppe'
it contains a map, with shows the other
enveloppe s location, wich is the secret
to be transmitted to the final location.
WHY 2 COURRIERS OR MORE?
some influential people with money,
make impossible bets on who
will bring back the secrets.
sometimes, the enveloppe is.....empty!
it s just for bet,
normally, you can tell by the number of factions involved....
SO THE COURRIERS FIGHT EACH OTHER?
it depends on situations,
sometimes the best strategy to make money,
is to share it with the danger...!
sometimes it s reputation,
not all courriers are equally paid
for the same job, if it s safer,
it s more expensive...
HOW A COURRIER BUILDS REPUTATION?
by being true to his word to;
#1 'the man with the letter'
#2 other teamates
#3 other allies he might be involved with.
participate in a lot of challenges,
to build experience, and successes!
HOW DOES IT END?
the dungeon master [cyberfrank]
makes the start location,
challengers [moc players]
make their own,
makes the finish line.
it can be arranged differently,
with time, and experience,
I HAVE MORE AMBITION THAN BEING A COURRIER...
ok, if people like the character enough,
it can become a regular character on ALTA-5,
as any corp affiliated will want him! lol!
I know of the existence of these races for a long time now...
they ve been going on for ages.
but, they re supposed to be secret, something is wrong here!
this place is the sacred temple, usually deserted,
my friends know of this guy, is name is latulipe!
this black clothed guy is known as 'the man with the letter'
he gives each contestant a small copy of the map with an 'x'!
to recover industrial espionnage secret stuff!
it is the custom to offer each hero with fresh water, but, there has been fouling before...
latulipe takes none.
this is the challenger I know best...KIRK!
he s pretty good...and fast!
the girl also shows the map to memorize, lol, the waterboy is late, idiot!
kirk does nt trust the water, so the letter guy drinks to show it s safe,
I would nt trust this guy.
nobody knows this guy, but, I ve heard he sent a letter to corps,
saying he s 'action flash' and that HE d get the money...
some fool seaking a rep, and money, of course!
uh ho, something is amiss here,
the guy ;dropped' the letter...
not a good sign...
OFF WITH THE STOOL!!!
OFF WITH THE FOOL!
never seen that!
PIANO PLAYING TRAGIQUELY....
TO THE WOLVES!!!
PIANO PLAYING TRAGIQUELY...
TO THE WOLVES!!!
this never happened while I attended before!
these wolves are surely trained...
whew, just the bones are left for the crocs!
this is ODDIE, he s my friends s fav!
he s quite good in acrobatics, supposed to be pretty cunning too.
he s smooth, nice landing...
some people bet a lot on him.
there he gets the map.
PIANO PLAYING ...
OUH, he should nt have insisted with the water!
the official signs it s ok, the race is still on.
the race starts, yeah!
ouh, latulipe is on kirk s case!

ahhw, he s really breaking kirk s back!
PIANO PLAYING WEIRDLY....
PIANO...I CAN T PLAY IF YOU FOOL...
PIANO AND PERFORMER...CRRRUNCH!!!!
come on kirk, my money!
that latulipe!...come on kirk!
oddie seems to do well, away from the fight,
ah, that latulipe! won t he let go?...
kirk! drop him! mmm, they don t have weapons yet,
that latulipe must ve picked his stick from the ground!
oddie is dodging the bears!
come on kirk! my rent is in your hands you fool!
aaah, I should have betted on oddie!
that guy is going to drop kirk,
oh, no! kirk is falling...
aah, almost! come on!
that s it, I m dead!...and oddie is passing...
ah, lucky break...
get back on that bike you fool!
yeah! that s racing!
now, get me that latulipe!
lets see what he does without his stick now! lol!
the sherriffs here don t like speeders very much...
the run them over or shoot them!
mmm, I think kirk s going for the kill now...
oh yeah, show this cretin!
wow!...he s out for sure now! lol.
ah, kirk s the best, my landlord will love him...
but, the sherriff is not impressed...
arg, look how he can charge!
at last, the truck stop!
they ll be able to pick up weapons there!
there is a cache made expressely for the event,
they get paid of course.
ah, that sherriff s a real zealot...
he s flying way too high!
he s gonna turn over!
that s it!
this must be a bounty hunter in diguise, he s going for the weapon...
ahh, kirk makes sure everybody knows it s his!
oddie does nt seem to mind,
the attendant seems to care about the sherriff s fate...
if the sherriff recovers too fast, he might call in reenforcements...
kirk makes sure he forgets it...
looks like the GF wants the secrets s location, it might be theirs...
they ll find electras tough to deal with,
especially with their cheap cars,lol.
kirk s gonna get rid of them...
and oddie goes for 'close and personnal'! lol.
oups, a buystander did nt avoid him...
it s racing again!
they really fly now!
off to the desert!

Quoting Builder Allan
then, you underestimate yourself, as you had me laughing a lot with the contestant that gets blown, lol, + you have that superb black team vehicle and figures, your collection is pro, I will do as many challenges as you like allan, it s cool to coop with you, give yourself a chance, I m sure you re only getting warmed up!
Hehe.. That piano-idea makes me laugh every time i watch this :-D It's quite allright with a little pause from the race, i have a lot less time for legos these days than i'd like to have. Maybe i will find a more original idea for my next part than what i did come up with too. To be honest, i liked setting up the race but was really struggling to come up with some original ideas for events in the race. Not that i could beat that piano-idea anyway ;-)
Awesome start! I like that idea with the piano player too :-D I'll have to work hard to set up something that will compete with this. An unrelated question before i'm off to build, though: Where did you get that lime-colored tree??
Boy I thought I had a lot of free time being a retired teacher out on disability - but I think you have me beat! Go out and see Les Miserables! Have an Ice Cream Cone! go to Place Ville Marie and have a slider!
