Harold, The Traveling Castle Fig

Discussion of general LEGO topics

Postby Elephant Knight » Sat Sep 13, 2008 10:57 pm

One evening, while chatting on chat, Dan (RH) comes up to me and hands me Harold. this was a few days ago, but I was only able to get around to take pictures of him today.

Now on to Harold's story:


It was quite stuffy inside of my plastic container, and no one was rescuing me, so I decided to break out of it. after getting out I took a look at my surroundings. That was when I noticed a strange, circular device. Almost immediatly after I saw it, it started making some noise. the next thing I know, there is a watery looking substance in the ring. As I step closer, I see two people step out of that watery substance. As I greet the two people, I see another two step out of the ring.

After greeting all of them, (Note to self, the one on the far left is Castle Sigfig, the center left is SW Sigfig, the center right is Town Sigfig, and the one on the far right is Pirate Sigfig) I meet with Castle Sigfig and talked to him about 'The good old days'.

It was then we decided to go to a place where I could meet more people who know of 'The good old days'. Though to get there, we have to go through the Ring-thing, though Castle Sigfig tells me it is called a Stargate.

After we went through, (it was quite the experiance) We were on an island in the middle of an ocean. I ask Town sigfig why we don't just turn the thing on again and go bcck to where we came from. I didn't understand his exlpanation, except that it had something to do with a 'DHD', whatever that is. While the other three argue about how we are going to get back, I look towards the towards the horizon and I see something in the distance. The others notice it too, and we start yelling and shouting to get the ships attention.

We do get their attention, and they send someone to go and bring us to the ship. It was around now that I noticed that one of our number, Star Wars Sigfig was never on the island. After we boarded the ship, I learned from the captain, who was in conversation with Castle Sigfig about where we needed to go, that the ship is called the HMS Relentless.

During my journey on the ship, I learned the Pirate Sigfig is actually a pirate. Thankfully, I was able to make a comprimise before any violence broke out. The rest of the journey had only one small thing noteworthy, and it was a Pirate ship, but they did not seem interesting in taking on our ship.

It was a few days later when we were dropped off on a small port in the middle of nowhere. At least it seemed like it was in the middle of nowhere, for there was a building nearby. Town Sigfig said it was a gas station, but that did not mean anything to me. Since we were here, Town Sigfig got us something to drink. after he paid using the oddest form of currency (Paper!) we stepped outside to get our bearings. I noticed that Town Sigfig had dissapeared for a moment, and when he came back, he was wearing different clothing. He said he had to go to his job, so me, Castle Sigfig, and Pirate Sigfig watched him go in the direction of a town. After that, we left in the opposite direction, which Castle Sigfig had decided was the way we wanted to go.

For the first couple of hours, our journey was uneventful. atleast untill we saw something that floated off the ground and made a weird noise. Castle sigfig went to investigate, while Pirate Sigfig and I stayed back.

Suddenly, (I don't even know where they came from!), we were surounded! All three of us dropped our weapons and put our hands in the air whan one of the people told us to do that or we "Would get shot". I didn't see any Bows, or crossbows, but I complied anyways. They took us and bound us with some form of handcuffs, and they loaded us onto their floating vehicle. I only new it was a vehicle of sorts because it moved to a different location so we could get on it, whatever IT was, easier. After we were on they took off and we headed to a destination unknown to me and my two comrades.


To be continued!

Tehe suspense is over! You finally get to figure out if Harold escapes (Of course you knew he would, it was more a question of how and when)







Actually, the reason it took so long, was because I finally got my Camera to download the Pics of Harolds second day. Though now I suppose I should call it: "Harolds 7th day".

Anyways, back to Harolds story:



It seems as if I was unconscious because when I woke up, I was in a prison of some kind. A few minutes after we woke up, we heard a noise outside the door. Me and Castle Sigfig went towards the wall next to the door so we could ambush whoever it was, while Pirate Sigfig was going to be a distraction. We jumped the two people and threw them into the cell. Castle Sigfig took the white guys weapon, even though we had no idea what it did.

We left in the only direction available to us, but I noticed there was someone down below, so I decided to be quiet, though I do not think that they could here us for some reason.
We saw a strange door at the end of the hallway, so we went to the other possible exit. What we say there did not make any sense on what it was. Even the person looked weird. As soon as we (and the strange person) got over the suprise of each other, the strange person took off towards a device on the far wall. Castle Sigfig, thinking the white person's weapon had to shoot something, seeing as it had a trigger, like a crossbow, he pointed it at the strange person and pulled the trigger. A blast of light came out and hit the person dead on. He seemed to be dead, so we went in closer to check to see for sure. He, or rather it, for it was not a person, was dead. While Castle Sigfig was examining the body of our dead enemy, I heard a noise come from a doorway. Looking in the direction I saw that Pirate Sigfig was about to step onto thin air! Thinking fast, I grabbed him before he fell off.

After this little incedent, Castle Sigfig decided we should go to the other door we saw. When we get there, the door opens, and it leads to a little room. we go iside the room and it seems unstable. Pirate Sigfig decides that it must be a room that goes up and down, for the room isn't very level. After a few attempts at pressing some buttons beside the door, The room moves, though I have no idea in which direction.

The room stops and Castle Sigfig steps out the door as it opens. We were lucky we were prepared, as there was another two people in there. After searching the room, we find two things. First, our weapons are here and we take them, though Pirate Sigfig keeps one of the weapons we got from the white guard. the second thing we found out, was that the other door here was obviously locked, for we could not open it. We went back to the moving room, so we could see if there was another level on which we could escape.

It took awhile, but we finally got to another floor. as with the last one, we charged out and killed anyone that seemed hostile, which was everyone but us, it seems. After a quick look around, we see a door and we head towards it. it takes a fe minutes to open it, but we do in the end.

We get out, and we run as fast as we can away from the building.

None of us looked behind as we made our way away from that place.

A few hours later, we spot something on the horizon. as soon as we can make it out, me and Casle Sigfig start running towards it. Though it seems Pirate Sigfig did not share in our joy at meeting fellow Classics.

The first person I meet is Sir Kjeld. We shake hands and he leads us inside the biulding, and I must say, it is nice to see modern architecture, for a change. As Sir Kjeld and Castle Sigfig go upstairs, I set down my sword and axe so I will not be burdened by carrying them, for I feel I am in safe hands here. After I ascend the stairs, I meet another of Castle Sigfig's compatriots. after saying hello and such, he heads to a lower level, while me and Castle Sigfig take a drink. Part way through an enlightining conversation, I realize how tired I am. Castle Sigfig directs me to a bed, and I happily plop down on it, and I fell asleep instantly.

After a long, restful sleep, I decide I should head on my way, but while I was asleep, Castle Sigfig brought a few friends over from a couple other lands. After saying good bye to all of them, I head on my way.


The end.


at least, untill Brickcon, but until then, Harold will hang out with Castle Sigfig. I might take a few pics while I wait, though.

That's a great story Elephant Knight, a really great story. It had everything anyone could want in a story: action, adventure, deserted islands, drinking, pirates, travel through some sort of extradimensional portal, yelling and shouting, a gas station, and so much more.

But what happened to SW sigfig. After 'everyone' goes through the portal, he disappears. Was there some sort of extradimensional rift into which he was sucked?

Thanks for the coment. As for SW Sigfig, I think he just didn't get through the portal in time, but I will leave it up to you to figure out what happened to SW sigfig. Though if you want to know the truth, I think I forgot him when I took the pictures

Well, every Story needs a Gas Sation.

Well it seem Harold has gone lots of amazing places!!!

Would he perhaps like to come to Denmark/and LEGOWORLD in Holland?

If so please get back to me ASAP, with who I need to contact :)

Perhaps he would like to tour The Haunted Manson!

With Brickcon now mere days away, is Harold in the hands of an attendee?

If not, can his current host send him to an attendee, and we'll send him right back after the con's conclusion?

Thanks!

I think Harold is either on his way to Sweden or Australia right now. Robin Hood had him last I believe. I haven't heard that Jonas has him yet, so my bet is en route to Sweden...

I haven't seen a trace of Harold yet but if he does arrive within a few days I could make sure he gets to Legoworld at least, since I was going to send my sigfig to Aliencat anyway.

Maybe Dan (aka Robin Hood) still has him then. Dan is coming to BrickCon, so I guess there is a chance of an appearance, either at the Con or at Legoworld. How exciting for Harold! :)

OK so he's staying over there until after BrickCon, and then he's on his way to Sweden? I'm still a few people down the list but I got totally freaked out when I saw Elephant Knight had him, because on the list, I'm right under Elephant Knight, but it seems he's taken a detour. I was totally out of control I didn't know what to do, Harold coming over so soon already! I wasn't ready yet! I almost threw up a little! But now I'm reassured again, I still have time to prepare for the Great One's arrival :)

Robin Hood and EK are brothers. Hence the personal delivery mentioned by EK. ;)

Ah that figures! I guess I don't have to get ready for Harold's arrival just yet. At the moment I have no castle creation intact for him, well one partly castle one but that doesn't count, so I plan to build a really big castle after Legoworld, for when Harold gets here :D

Okay, as the person who currently has Harold, let me explain things so that we all understand. I recieved Harold, did his week with me, and then contacted Ben for further instruction. Seeing as there had been some talk of him being at BrickCon, and that his next stop was on the other side of the world, I figured I should ask what to do before sending him off. We talked, and in the end decided to keep him here in Alberta until the Con. Immediately after which he would be sent off to Maedhros who is next on the list. But since it was at least two or so weeks till the Con, we figured that there was no point in having him do nothing, and since EK is my brother and I see him frequently, I passed Harold to him to look after until the Con. So make sense? I dunno if it was perhaps the absolute best choice that we could have made, but all things considered, it's about as good as it can get. And just to be clear, this was done with Ben's approval.

Dan :wink:
I build, therefore I am.
