LOM: Parting Ways (2)

Dwyrde's market is a small marketplace located just outside Deer Forest. Despite its small size, it is one of the most popular places for buying goods from the nearby city of Hadran. As such, the market is usually fairly busy, and going to the market is often one of the few times that Deer Clan members regularly leave the forest.

The market specializes in flowers, fish, apples, and grain.

- Excerpt from The Clans of Rainos, Volume VI: The Deer Clan

LOM: Parting Ways (5)

October, 6 AU

Halbert walked slowly through the forest, watching for dangers. He and Filberth had been traveling through Rainos for weeks now; they had finally reached Hadran the previous day. They were looking for a place where they could hide, but Halbert figured this wasn't the place - there were too many places from which people could sneak up on them in a forest, and hiding near a city wasn't a good idea - while they hadn't had any trouble yet, he knew that it wouldn't be safe for a Mythronian to be near Rainosians.

Then again, this village seemed safe. So far, he and Filberth had managed to walk through it safely; the people seemed friendly, and surprisingly, they didn't seem to mind that they were Mythronians. Still, Halbert was determined not to be so easily fooled - while the people seemed friendly, he suspected that they were merely hiding their true intentions.

LOM: Parting Ways (6)

As they approached a marketplace, Halbert heard a noise - footsteps. He turned around to see a crowd of men running toward them, brandishing swords. He drew his own sword in response, and Filberth readied his bow.

* * *


Elisa opened the door carefully before stepping outside. Against the advice of her father, the clan had voted to support the Dragons in the ongoing civil war. At first, she had thought it would be good - the Dragons were powerful, and the king seemed to vaguely support them over the Ibers. But as time went on, she realized that her father's suggestion of staying neutral may have been a better choice - frequent attacks by the Ibers made life in the Deer Village more dangerous. After almost accidentally walking right into an attack weeks ago, she had learned to be cautious when going outdoors.

The sight Elisa saw outside was shocking - a pair of Mythronians had just defeated a group of Ibers. She ran inside to call her parents.

LOM: Parting Ways (7)

Halbert and Filberth were heroes for the day. They had been surrounded by crowds of Deer Clan members, who cheered and thanked them for their success. They had met Stefan, who had gone to live with his family in the Deer Clan after the Santuario Gold Rush. They had feasted with the elders of the clan, celebrating the victory more and retelling the dramatic moments of the battle. After speaking to a girl - Elisa - in the clan, Halbert had finally agreed to settle down and live in the village with them. But something seemed wrong.

Filberth wouldn't meet Halbert's eyes. It was as though he was hiding something from Halbert, and Halbert couldn't figure out what it could be. Finally, Halbert spoke. "What's going on? Is something wrong? Is there something I should know?"

"Halbert...you said you are joining the Deer Clan."

"Yes - Stefan has family in the clan; they told me we could join. That's what you wanted to do, isn't it?"

"I had wanted to join. But after the battle, I was approached by a representative of the Dark Valley Clan - King Bartok's guards. She was impressed by my archery skills, and wants me to join them.
"Halbert, we've been friends together for so long. Over the past years, we've had so many adventures together. But it is time for us to part ways. As much as I would like to join you, I know that I cannot pass up this opportunity. I can only hope that I may see you again someday. Until then, I must say goodbye."

I'm finally done uploading mocs from last month! This one is by far my favorite of my last month builds. The building has a lot of angles, which were very tricky to work with. And unlike Mother Hulda, this building was extremely fragile, which made it even more difficult. I really love how it looks though. The color scheme is based on the colors that I used in Zelpunra's tower, and like before, I really like how it looks. Even if this moc used nearly my entire supply of olive green, sand green, and dark tan :P

Hooray, non-racist baby hands! People who saw this on flickr will know what I'm referring to. Let's see if the comments here are as weird as they were there...

Cool! Thanks! Well, So far O only have one net, so I will have to wait, but thanks for the feedback!

Quoting Hadden Kurtz Hey, I was wondering about how you achieved your roof with the net, I am wondering what your technique is? Thanks!
Each file is attached to the roof by a single 1x1 round plate so that each one can be hinged individually. The net in between the large plates and the tiles fills in the gap between the two layers.

Quoting Hadden Kurtz Ok, I think that your forbidden castle is worthy enough though, in other words I think that is my favorite build of your so far, By the way, how did you get the angles for the building in this one? I have been wondering this, obviously with a bunch of 1x1 circular flats and your 1 by flats, but what are your techniques for this? And also I am wondering about the rock work? I think my main struggle is finding a good way to do rocks in Legos, thanks again!!! :)
Interesting, I'm actually not a huge fan of Forbidden Castle, it's a bit too sloppy and rushed for my tastes (I built about half of it in 1-2 days), and I think it's also too big for Lego ideas. For the building angles, there's a few techniques I used - 1x2 hinge bricks for the stone wall, and for the upper section, I used panels that just locked into place (not very sturdy, there's much better techniques, i have an album called "Behind the Scenes" on my Flickr that shows the techniques used in some of my most complex builds). As for the rocks, it's hard, I'm still trying to get a look that I like, but basically use lots of SNOT and some hinges with various types of slopes until you get a shape that looks good and natural, and is fairly smooth without being too smooth (try to avoid too many ridges and studs, but having too few of either is also not good). ----- Edit: with regards to the Forbidden Castle thing, after looking at it, I remembered part of the issue: it's actually unfinished - it was supposed to have several more wall segments, but I ran out of time and parts. Anyway, I'm not sure that it would translate well to a set. However, I might put Hope's Blossom up there, since it's a better size and the architecture would still be good (possibly better) in a simpler style, and it would be more unique as a set; I also have a build that I'm working on now that I would consider posting on Ideas too.

Thanks, I have really high standards for what I put on Lego Ideas so I'm not sure if I have any other builds that I'd want to put on there, I might post some future builds there if I like them enough.

I see what you mean on the flat part. You could have improved it, but not a lot. And I guess we'll see on the upcoming build! I'm looking forward to it.

Quoting Kai Bernstein I half disagree with Julia. The landscaping is fantastic; I love the pond, the angles, the texturing - particularly the subtle SNOT angling on the left side. I do not like the surface of the left side, it's pretty bland and stands out as such. Those crates are awesome - that's a great technique. Wheelbarrow too. The house is good - Roof is definitely improved over previous ones. But the general design is one I've seen from you far too often - that and the colors. And the chimney is too thin. Should be 2x2 or use some SNOT to make it fatter or something. Overall, VERY nice - now it's time to add some twists to the buildings!
I know - the crate design meant that there literally couldn't be any texture in most of that side of the landscape. I definitely won't be repeating that technique because of that :P (and it didnt help that I ran out of all the colors I used) But yeah, I need to do more different stuff - my current MBC unfortunately has a very similar layout for the building, but the colors are completely different, which hopefully makes up for it :P

By the way, I do mean for you to respond to each of these. :P

Quoting Julia LeeP Wowzs. I'm just going to go ahead and say it: I honestly don't think the building is anything original. Don't get me wrong, it's completely amazing, and much better than anything I could do, but I feel like I've seen it at least once before from you :P The chimney is a nice touch, though. I really love the landscaping, here, though, despite the fact that I dislike the olive+normal+sand green combo. The textures are amazing minus that flat plate on the far left, and I really wish I could integrate rockwork naturally the way you do. I also love the way that the ground slides into the puddle so... naturally :P Anyways, noice work.
Thanks. I agree about the building - I was trying to make it original with the angles and the chimney, but it's fairly bland. Unfortunately, I ended up reusing a very similar layout for my MBC WIP, but maybe the interesting colors will make up for the unoriginal architecture. I personally love the combo of the greens (like in Zelpunra's tower), but I think it was probably a bit more successful there, since I wasn't so low on pieces, and the olive leaves here make it look a bit weird. But yeah, thanks :)

Quoting Thomas . Great work! I think the chimney would look better if it weren't 1x2 though. Oh, nice reference to Llamas' With Hats with that cart of hands. "My stomach had the rumbly's that only hands could satisfy. CARL!" :P Those brick-built crates are sweet too.
Hehe, blame Hacim Bricks on Flickr for referring to that video, which started a long discussion about whether he (and the MOC) was racist :P

That was unintentional actually :P someone on Flickr compared this to Llamas with Hats 5 and started the weirdest conversation I've ever had on a MOC :P you can see it here: https://m.flickr.com/photos/halhi141/19713265378/
