Oh, the tiresome life of the outlaw! One can be spit-roasting rabbit over a peaceful open fire one minute and running from Imperial troops the very next!
However, I must give credit to the Mythronians for finding me. I didn't expect them to scout the northern coast; they rarely do.
Sometimes I wonder why they spend so much energy looking for me. Maybe it's the shield...?
There are a whole lot of them after me; if I look back I can only see four but I can hear the shouts of at least five more.
One object that struck me to be out of place was the Rainosian ship anchored off the coast. Rainos! The bitter enemy of Mythron. At least, they were...
I do apologize for my childish behavior when fighting the barbarians. Sometimes I become a little..."excited" during a good fight. But I must say, the fight was worth it! This shield seems to have the ability to forewarn me of danger. Today I was sitting under a tree, taking a rest...suddenly I found myself jumping up and sprinting away from the tree. The instant I did so a cannonball came hurtling toward the tree and rolled clean into the spot where I had been sitting! It really was quite extraordinary. The Rainosian and Mythronian soldiers are beginning to get closer, I must go now. Cheers!
Dwarf 1: Yo he's got de shield! C'mon man, what joo waitin' fo? Les go get 'im!
Dwarf 2: No dawg, dere ain't no way I'm chasin' him!
Dwarf 1: Man, stop whinin'! Dey gon' have yo head if we don' get it back!
Dwarf 2: Yo he's gon' get yo head if you chase 'im! I'm stayin' here yo, joo go chase 'im if joo want!
The coast. As you may have guessed, this was originally my entry for the June Universal Challenge in which Rainos and Mythron teamed up to fight against the outlaws. This was a really fun build; this was also my first serious attempt at forced perspective and I think it went well.
Better view of the ship. I'm extremely behind on the happenings in LOM, so this build is probably very inaccurate in terms of timeline (are Rainos/Mythron still allied?). I'm having difficulty juggling both parts-intensive LOM builds and time-intensive builds for The Cult at the moment.
Bird's eye of the whole MOC. Because of the little time I do have for MOCing, I think I will focus my energy on The Cult, which has already been delayed too many times. It wouldn't be fair if it was delayed still more to make room for LOM. That being said, I will not be altogether leaving LOM; if I have time I may throw in a build or two, but for the most part I'll be inactive. My next LOM build will provide me with a way out.
Quoting Gilbert Despathens
It's good to see that you're back in action. A regretful note- cannons and gunpowder have been banned by inter-factional treaty, no matter how well-built the microscale ships that carry them.
