Here is my entry into LCC Global Challenge VI, into the Vignette Category. The maximum size was 8x8, so as I was thinking what I was going to build, I realized that his was the perfect opportunity for another story tower! :D
I had a lot of fun with this build, and I hope you like it as well!
When Andar and Kole arrived at the Oakleaf Fortress, they met up with their leader, Feren, the elf who raised Andar, to plan a raid. They needed to stock up on weapons for the battle that was sure to come. Andar on the way to the Fortress had found an abandoned Lenfald castle, which was now occupied by some 30 Queen’s soldiers. Andar planned to raid it, and steal all their arms and armor. The night before, Andar quickly had the carpenter make a small 3D map of the castle they were going to raid and its surroundings. The next night he, Kole, and Feren met to discuss their plans. "We will attack by night," Andar said, "and release 3 of my Lenfald Rangers into the castle. They in turn will locate the armory, and then return with the information. We, meaning Kole, the Rangers and I will then sneak in, and out with all the weapons. It will take time, but we will eventually get all of it.” Feren stood back thoughtfully, stroking his chin in thought. Doubtfully, he asked “but how will you and your men even sneak in with all the guards?” Before Andar could reply, he continued, “I mean, even if you do make it in without alarming anyone, how in the world will you 5 guys not make any noise when you bring all that armor and weapons back up?” “Like I said, we will take a few at a time, and go slowly,” Andar replied patiently. “Do you doubt our abilities?” Feren replied hastily, “Oh no, knowing you long enough, I don’t doubt your abilities, much less those of your former apprentice. But I have not seen these…Rangers in action, and don’t know how capable they are at completing this kind of mission. I don’t even know who trained them, or how good he is.” Andar, rolling his eyes, responded quietly, “I trained them. Feren grew red in the face, realizing he insulted Andar, “Believe me, they will easily be able to complete this mission.” Feren nodded, still uncertain, but not wanting to disagree, replied, “whatever you say Andar.” Andar raised an eyebrow, “I see that you still don’t believe me. Well, here is your proof.” He uttered a short whistle, and immediately Rangers surrounded them. Feren started in surprise; to him they appeared straight out of thin air! “Where in the world did they come from!” “Actually,” Andar replied calmly, “they have been here this whole time.” Feren shook his head in amazement, “Well then, I have no doubts in their abilties now.” He smiled, rubbing his hands together in excitement, “Well, that settles it, we attack in a week. Have your Rangers ready by then.” “Of course.”
Throughout the week, the Lenfald Rangers prepared for the raid, making sure they had a decent amount of weapons, honing their skills back to perfection, and at the same time keeping watch around the surrounding lands, making sure nobody discovered the secret castle.
Well, I had fun with this story, I am not that great at writing them, but tell me what you think. :D Hopefully I will be able to build the next entry in time, if not, it will be a free build. Thanks for viewing, and enjoy!
