LOM#3 - The Story of the Barkeeper, Part One
My third LOM entry! (: For those of you who forgot: Elizabeth is in the inn in Digaroth, and this is Tom (the barkeeper) telling her what happened 17 years back.
About this creation
Previous episode

"It happened about two decades ago. I was still a young lad, no older than twenty, helping my father who ran this inn at the time. Jeremy, your father, was my best friend. He was the son of a fisherman, like most lads in town. He spent most of his time at sea. As Enalicans all of us knew a lot about ships, of course. Digaroth was very peaceful at the time. Until Ivanneth came. It was late October, winter was on its way. The trees had lost many leaves already, and the days were growing shorter. I was at the market square when they came.


About twenty men and women, all clad in black, wielding strange weapons. All of them wore necklaces, shaped like the crescent moon, some closer to full moon than others. None of them had a full moon necklace, but for one man. He was in front, wearing a large hood. I never saw his eyes. The group stopped on the square. Everyone fell silent as the man in front climbed the stairs and started to speak



“People of Digaroth” he said “we shall do you no harm, if you act as I command.” His voice was low and clear, yet he sounded quite young. But it had an almost magical thing to it, that made everyone in the market square pause their activities and listen. The leader continued. “First of all, my people and I shall stay at the mayor’s house. If he would be so kind, he shall stay at the inn for a while. His staff shall remain to serve us. Secondly, we would very much appreciate it if a share of the food would be given to us, for we too need to eat. And thirdly, we shall be granted the power to search every house and use your possessions as we wish. Thank you.” He was about to walk away, when a man from the crowd started to speak.



“And why would I take orders from you? Shadowface! You and your creeps don’t belong here!! Go away!! I ain’t giving you my food or lettin’ you in me house!” The leader turned back and smiled, his eyes still hidden in the shadow of his hood. A hand emerged from his long black sleeve.



He waved with his fingers, and the man screamed out in pain, clutching his chest, and fell to the ground, moaning.



His wife fell to her knees, crying, and embraced as if she were protecting him.



The leader’s hand disappeared again. “Anyone else who doesn’t agree?” the leader asked. His voice was sweet and evil now. The crowd fell silent. “Good” The leader smiled again. "





The build! I used a lot of techniques that are new to me, so tell me how this worked out, and like always, tips are appreciated! (:

Quoting Julia LeeP Oh, sweet! A girl who's in the LOM, and who has the same awesome name as myself? I'll take that ;) Too bad you aren't in Mythron... Anyways, really nice build. One thing I would say is that this build could be improved if the colors were not just mixed up, but were in clumps, sorta like what you see in nature. For example, the coloring on the road is kind of chaotic- even if you don't have the pieces to make the road one main color, try to group the colors instead of scattering them. Same goes for the whitewash: the darker colors tend to settle at the bottom, turning into white (using the colors that you used) gradually as it goes up, with a few studs of irregularity here and there to break up the all-whiteness. That aside, though, really nice build, and I'm looking forward to seeing your future ones :)
Thank you (: And I must say... Our name is just the most awesome one. :p Thanks a lot for the tips, I will try them out soon! (:

Quoting Admiral Varkov Very nice scene. The thatched roof and cobblestone path techniques are both very effective.
Thanks (: I spent quite some time trying to get it right. :P

Quoting Nathan Pownell Nice job Julia! I like the cobblestone road, but there are quite a few gaps and too many colors going on. I have to say that if you were to take out the dark tan in the street it would look a little better. Take this build for instance: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/388821 Luke uses mostly dark bley for the street, mixing in a few light bley bricks here and there. It creates more of a... Realistic look. You'll also notice that he didn't use all of his bricks sideways in the street, you can see some studs sticking up in places. The other assets of your build are good, but I think you should try and minimize the gap between the roof and the building. (Trust me, I know how hard it is to do, but it pays off. ;)) Well, I hope that helped you! I know my builds aren't flawless, but I think everyone can give a little criticism. :D Good luck with your next builds!
Thanks a lot for the tips (: I am quite new to this technique so I still have to figure it out... :p Thank you (:
Quoting Sunder • I like the olive green in the path. Good job!
Thanks! (:
Quoting Saxton ~ Very nice! I just can't decide if I like the bley cones on the, I can't think of the word, foundation? Is that it? Well, you used the techniques very well in this build, and you didn't use them too often, which is nice. I might be the only one who says this, but is sideways building on the walkway used too much? I dunno. I can still see that a lot of work went into building this. Keep it up! :)
Thank you! I'll to put some studs straight up in the walkway next time .(:
