After finding out about his true parents, Jake travelled to Carthal with a group of a few friends in hopes of finding a ship heading out to sea soon. He didn’t know why but he felt an urge to get back on the sea as soon as possible. Hearing of a captain searching for a crew in a small town near Carthal, Jake went to find the Captain.



Upon his arrival Jake headed straight to the tavern the captain was staying at, walked up to the bartender, and asked for Captain Armando. After the bartender pointed him out Jake approached a table with two men sitting at it.



“Are you Captain Armando,” he asked one of the men at the table.

“Aye,” the man answered.

“I hear you’re looking for a crew. Could you use a lad like me?”

“Aye, a young lad like ye would fit me crew perfectly,” said Captain Armando with a slight Enalican accent. “But before I be a takin’ ye on, have ye any history of piratin’?”

“No sir,” replied Jake looking him straight in the eye.

The man stared hard at him for a moment. “I can tell by the look in yere eye that ye be tellin’ the truth,” said Captain Armando finally. “What’s yere name lad?”

“It’s Jake, Jake MacArthur.”

“Have ye any sailing experience?”

“I’ve sailed across the Sea of Division and back on different ships of different size.”

“Good so ye know at least the basics of sailin’. Alright MacArthur, if I can get me a crew we’ll be leavin’ by lunch tomorrow.”

“Thank you Sir. I’ll be there.”

With that Jake retired for the night. The next day Jake awoke and went to find one of the members of his party. Knocking on the door to his room he called, “You awake, Nickolas?”

“I am now,” said a sleepy voice from inside.

“I’m going down to breakfast now, join me when you’re ready. There are a few things I would like to talk about.”

With that Jake returned to the main hall. He was feeling rather happy that morning and wanted to talk with someone. At the moment there was only one other man in the tavern. Walking on over Jake said, “Good morning, Sir! What are you doing in these parts?”

The man looked up. Jake recognised him as Jonathan Gideon. Hiding his surprise he waited for an answer which was slow in coming. After studying him briefly Gideon asked doubtfully, “You wouldn’t happen to know where a man named Nickolas would you?”

“I do happen to know a Nickolas. Was the one you’re looking for in the Mythronian army for a while?”

“Yes, he was. His full name is Nickolas Faintree,” said Gideon.

Jake thought for a moment. Gideon was a good man but for some reason, Jake couldn’t help but feel uneasy about giving him all this information about Nickolas. Pushing aside his uneasiness he said, “Yes, his name is Faintree.”



“I haven’t seen him in a while,” said Gideon trying to hide his anticipation and excitement. “Have you?”

“Yes, I saw him yesterday” said Jake suspicious of Gideon, one of the most skilled at arms in all the lands, possibly hunting the man who helped him through his training.

“Where is he,” asked Gideon?

Something about the way Gideon was talking made him think that was not the reason. Still not wanting to betray a fellow Mythronian Jake said, “Why haven’t seen him in a while if he is your friend?”

Gideon sighed. After thinking for a few minutes he said solemnly, “He’s betrayed the spy council and me.”

Jake was shocked! Nickolas betrayed the spy council! “He couldn’t have,” said Jake angrily when he found his voice. “He’s always been kind and helpful to me. How could you accuse your friend of betrayal?”

“If you know anything about the spy council then you know that the Shadow Guild is our enemy.”

“Yes I know that,” said Jake calming down a bit.

“Nickolas has been seen as a body guard for their leader.”

Jake didn’t reply. He was struggling with himself. Jonathan Gideon was a good man. He wouldn’t accuse an old friend of being a traitor without good reason. Yet how could Jake help a Rainosian find a Mythronian that he will probably kill. Torn in two, Jake sat down again. He knew the right thing to do was to help Gideon but he wanted to stay loyal to his friend. Finally he said weakly, “He’s upstairs. In the second room to the left.” He had done it. Sacrificing friendship he did what he knew to be right.

Gideon practically leaped out of his seat and started racing towards the staircase when he turned back and called, “Thank you for your help.” Then he bounded up the steps.

Jake sat in silence before leaving for Captain Armando’s ship. A few minutes after he had left, a suspicious looking man got up left. Once outside he was approached by a man hiding in the shadows beside the building.
“He be him,” the man from the tavern said sinisterly.

After the battle for Zorthan, Antero got news that some questionable characters were haunting a small town not far from Carthal. Taking his group of soldiers, he went to hunt down these men. After arriving they asked around. The people, mostly farmers and fishermen, were very helpful and before long Antero and his soldiers were heading towards the local tavern, the location that their quarry was last seen.



As they were walking up to the tavern one of the soldiers said quietly, “Look, Sir! Beside the building in the shadows there is two men, one dressed completely in black.”

Antero and the soldiers drew their swords and quietly advanced. Once they were within earshot they heard one of the men say with a queer accent, “We better be going back to deh ship and tell deh Kapitan.”



“I still think we should follo-,” the reply was cut short as the man in black caught sight of Antero and the soldiers.

Not wasting a second Antero leaped up and ran the last few yards between with his soldiers’ right behind him. The man in black turned and fled. The other man knew he couldn’t escape and drew his sword. Before he could do anything, the soldiers jumped him and pinned him to the ground. One of soldiers produced a rope. After tying him they hauled the man onto his feet and some of them headed for Carthal, and the nearest prison while others went after the their prisoner's accomplice.


What Happens Next

Hello everybody,

As you've most likely seen or heard about, this is a crossover with Andrew Spader. This build turned out much larger than I was planning and probably would have got even bigger if it weren't for the fact that part of my family (including myself) is going camping on Thursday and won't be back until Sunday and my younger brother Jacob Syrups wanted to build something for this month's UC. And I also wanted to post it either just before or on my MOCiversary (today :D).

Here's a picture of the side that I took. I had taken more but some of them didn't turn out. Also I will edit the pics that I haven't sometime in the future when I get the urge to.



Thanks for dropping by. Please leave a comment with some tips that I can use for the future or just leave a like.

Quoting Thomas of Tortuga Really nice work. The wide expanse of green really sets off the building, and the whitewash has just enough detail.
Thanks, mate.

Thanks for the comments guys.
Quoting Halhi 141 Nice build, though I agree with Armon - I think you might have done better by going smaller with more refinement - that would help both in terms of time and piece count. Good work.
I'll remember that for my next MOC. Thanks for the advice.

Wow, probably your best yet Mariner! Though I think it would've been better if you'd gone smaller on this. :P There are some parts that seem a little too big and klunky-ish as a whole. But I really like the landscaping, and great stonework! Nice work.
