LOM Episode 4: Meeting
And all will be explained soon. Why Ganner is in Guaire, what happened in the forest with Bandon, why he remembers nothing, etc.
About this creation


It was midday, and Ganner walked down the cobblestone path a small marketplace in Guaire. He could not for the life of him remember what happened the two days before his journey to Rainos. Actually a lot of days, but the last two most prominently. It was as if his mind had been wiped...but by whom? And how?


He wandered aimlessly down a busy market street, slowing and looking with interest as he came upon a blacksmith shop. But before he could walk in, a voice spoke from behind him.


“Excuse me,” The Nerogue began.

Ganner spun around. They were three men and a woman. One of the men had light wavy hair and wore clothes and armor screaming “Mythron”. The second man and the woman were clearly of Rainos. The one who had spoken was a Nerogue, with dark hair an sharp cheekbones. He continued, “My name is Destrian, and we--”


“No.” The male Rainosian interrupted loudly.
Ganner stared at them. “What?”


“Rego, stop,” The woman said.
The Nerogue, Destrian, began again. “We were wondering if you had any interest in joining our team, the Average Gnomes.”
“No, I won’t have him, Elisa,” Rego said to the woman. “Not another Mythronian. They’re a penny a platoon. Dimwitted weaklings. Incompetent bunglers. I've killed hundreds myself!”
The Myhtronian opened his mouth to retort, glaring at Rego, but Ganner spoke first.


“I’m not,” he said automatically.
Rego snorted.
“Not a Mythronian, I mean. I’m an Outlaw."


Rego’s eyebrows shot into his forehead. “Really?”
The Mythronian frowned. “What are you doing in blue, then?”
"Oh, I always wear the color of the nation I'm in -- keep friendly with the locals -- and I was in Mythron recently."
The woman, Elisa, spoke up. “Even if he is a Mythronian, it doesn’t matter! If he's able, which he appears to be, he should work fine.”
“Team? What are you talking about? What is this, anyway?” Ganner snapped.
“For the Tourney, of course!” Destrian cried. “Surely you’ve heard of it.”
“Yes -- we’re one member short of the maximum for our group, and we could use you,” Elisa added. "You seem to be...er, experienced."
The Mythronian laughed. “Elisa, ‘experienced’ is being more than a little charitable, don't you think? This Outlaw looks like he’s been dragged through the stables!”

Ganner’s clothes were worn and faded. He had stubble on his chin and a bandage on his head, saturated in dried blood. His hair was tangled and his boots spattered with mud. He sure looked “experienced”.
“Well,” he said, “That’s, uh, nice of you to offer, but I don’t think I can do that. I actually need to...find myself. You see, I don’t really remember--”

“HA!” Rego, who apparently had had a change of heart after finding out Ganner’s affiliation, sprang forward, literally knocking Elisa and Destrian aside, and gave a sharp bark of laughter. “Find yourself?! What better way to find yourself than in the arena! You’ll find the limits of your strength in combat! You’ll find the edge of your wit solving puzzles! You’ll be put on the most treacherous terrain imaginable, doing the hardest tasks possible! What better way, what better place, to find yourself, than here in the Tourney?”

Ganner hesitated. “Well, I...I guess I don’t really have much else to do at this time...”


“Excellent!” Rego crowed. Now come, let me buy you a weapon. I killed a Mythronian noble a few days ago.” (“WHAT!” The Mythronian cried.) “Quite a wealthy fellow, you know. Lots of money to spare! And I’m always willing to help another Outlaw, especially one who has hair as good as mine...”



----------------------------

And that's that. Now I ought to explain a few things.
First, almost all of my masonry pieces were being used in a WIP. I had to cannibalize a third of it for this.
Second, I had two days to build this. This moc was originally going to consist of 3 different scenes, but time consumed those dreams. I was even forced to downgrade this moc - the blacksmith shop was originally to have two floor and more intricate designs - to make the deadline.
Third, the story. I also wanted to make an episode bridging the gap between Forest Confrontation and this. Because obviously a lot of stuff has happened between them. Again, though, I ran out of time. And seeing as this is for an Average GnomIIes mini-contest, this took priority. Bu don't worry, I'll be releasing an Episode 3.5 soon to explain what happened. :P

NOW, for the pictures of the build itself. :P

The cast! Ganner is my character. Rego is Toa Infernum's, Elisa is Halhi's, Destrian is Stephen Boe's and the Mythronian, Kindle, is Brick's. This was a collaborative-ish contest - Infy, Stephen and I had to choose one of three scenes to build, and I got the last. (Which is good, because I'm kind of tired of landscaping.)


Here it is. Considering the above, I'm pretty pleased with it. I tried out some new techniques - namely the diagonal beams on the right.




The path I like. A lot.


The steps, which are a stud-and-a-half long each. Figured I'd use some jumper plates to make unique what would otherwise be boring.


Above the door is a hammer and some Rainos red...we are in Guaire, after all. The masonry isn't my best, but then I was really rushed by this point.


I really love the beams here. But MAN, were these annoying. I wen't through three prototypes and countless hours trying to figure this out. The window there is actually connected via a small bar that's inserted behind the gold stud at the top. Clever, right?


Aaaaaand the back. Ha.


Parting shot.


And there you go!

Infy, you probably won -- but then you had twice as long to build and a collection twice as big, so I don't feel too bad. :P

Quoting Professor B. Well! Look who's come back from the dead! :P Nice one Kai. Really like the textures on the walls. Overall though, I think the back is the best part. ;)
Yeah...I know. :P More IS on its way...can't say when, though. :P Thanks! And, ha.

Quoting Infernum Mythron-Bane Love Rego's line about killing a Mythronian! Yeah, I was literally an outlaw for like a month, so I'm surprised anyone remembers that. :P anyway, nice work! :)
Thanks! Yeah, I tried to give Rego a very...Rego-like attitude. Maybe I was a little too flamboyant with him, though. :P

Quoting Armon Russ Ahhh the ever-cliché and ever-convenient memory loss twist! :P Anyway, you've finally posted something as well. Great work on the texturing on that path. And the tilted beams really have me staring. Your steps are pretty unique, too. Plus, your story is a nice way to introduce your fellow teammates. (Halhi will be using a girl character? Where have I seen that before? ;P) But overall, this is quite nice. Keep up the good work. And I'm hoping I'll be able to participate in the Tourney as well.
Yeah...well...it was the only solution. :P And thanks on the shop; incorporating the tilted beams easily swallowed up 90% of the time spent on this build. :P

Quoting Dark Mercenary Kydan Witress Excellent job on the house! The ground is very well detailed, also along with the house I might add lol. Keep it up ;)
Thanks, though I don't know if it's good sign that the path is more memorable than the shop. :P

Quoting Thomas of Tortuga The path design is spot-on perfect. Wow, your "interiors" are even worse than Halhi's!
Thank you, I think so too! And oh boy, if you think this is bad, wait till you see the "interior" of that blue house WIP. :P

Quoting Julia LeeP Wonderful work, Kai! The story is funny, and I really like the new techniques you used in this build, especially those diagonal beams.
Thanks! The story is actually not quite at the level I'd like it to be, due mostly to it being a draft that (because of time constraints) got little refinement. :P

Quoting Kai Bernstein That’s the same Ganner he’s always been; no change in the torso. :P And I didn’t copy anyone on the memory wipe -- it just happens to be the only way for the Tourney to fit into my story. And it’s actually extremely well explained, I have it written down and everything. It’s very unique, what happened to him.
"Really well explained-" hehe, that's the exact same way with me. It's a pity you'd have to hack my hard drive to see how it all fits together.

Quoting Thomas of Tortuga Like Infy, you also get a flow-comment as I come to things. Ganner's got a swaggy new torso- I like. Copycat on memory wipe :P I dunno if this was intentional, but Destrian's grin really makes him look like an id!ot :P (look who's talking :D) Ditto on Rego- his surprised look is @$(#& hilarious. Is Elisa flirting with Ganner? I like the sloped wall on the shop. I LOLed so hard at Halhi's comment. You need to get in LOM some more, dude! I'm looking forward to more pics of this one.

Yeah, I know, but it's the only yellow head I have that looks anything like him (or Halbert). And yeah, you're definitely one to talk. :P No, Elisa is not flirting with Ganner. She’s Halhi’s character anyways. :P I should change the dialogue so there’s no implication. Thanks! I do. So badly. :P More pictures are coming!

Quoting Halhi 141 A few little mistakes - it's a team, not a guild, and Rego is a Rainosian, not just an outlaw in Rainosian colors :P
I'll fix that about the team. And, oh. That seems obvious now. When did he officially switch again? :S
