Man, he must have been falling close to slow motion or something! Nice story and builds anyway. :tasty:

On a side note, Maldrake is called the Silent, which presumably means that he doesn't speak...

More of the story:

Image

We now return to the fortune of Gavin of Lockwood and Joshua Navarre. Fortunately for them they were locked in a "decent" cell together. Still the food they received was horrible and neither had any desire to stay there more than they had to.
"Any ideas? I'm open to suggestions!" Joshua asked Gavin one day, about a week after their imprisonment. "How about this;" responded Gavin, "we get that boulder and toss it at the door, then we sabotage the guard and get out of here. Then, we go to the harbor, find a ship, hide in it, and away for the mountains and swamplands!" "It sounds easy…" shrugged Joshua, "but…well… what are you waiting for?!" But moving a boulder IS easier said then done and throwing one even harder! It took all of their strength to lift it and then they barely managed to get it a few inches away from were it was originally. Gavin sighed, "If at first you don't succeed, try again!" He wasn't willing to give up the idea so they tried again. With worse results! This time it landed on Gavin's foot! Gavin yelled and Joshua flung himself on the mat. However to their extreme surprise and delight the boulder rolled to the door which fell nearly on top of an astonished guard! Joshua leaped from the cot and jumped on him. He fell and dropped his battleaxe without a sound, it was done so quickly.
Gavin and Joshua proceeded to the next guard in the hallway up the stairs. Gavin had got the axe but just as they got up the stairs the guard turned. The sentinel and Gavin jumped at each other and both the battleaxes went flying providing a weapon for Joshua who was about to attack the guard. Just as Joshua swung with the axe Gavin pushed the guard into the wall and he missed hitting the guard and instead whacked the wall! Soon the guard was killed and the duo made their way to the wharf.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

At the dock there was a continual coming and going of the queens men in ships. So, it wasn't hard for Gavin of Lockwood and Joshua Navarre to climb aboard unnoticed and they found a somewhat safe place to hide in the mast top… Hours later… The captain of the ship told someone to go up and see how far it was to land as they were far out sailing through the sea of Despair. The ship was overflowing with the queens soldiers and bound for the swampland but despite the fact that this is where Joshua Navarre and Gavin wanted to go they were far from joyful.
"What now?" asked Joshua as though proving the fact that Gavin really had no plan.
"Easy! We throw him off when he gets up!"
"Do you know what to do afterward?" retorted Joshua, "We can't just stay here because by then they'll will know we're up here!"
"Why! we'll jump off, we can swim the rest of the way!"
"What!"
"Why not, we're only a ways away from land."
So they were prepared when the soldier climbed up to where they were and when the man was up, before he could recover from his shock, Joshua knocked out the axe from his hand and they locked together in a scary fight! As they wrestled Joshua, freeing himself from the strong grasp of his combatant, swung around the mast and kicked the man overboard! Then both he and Gavin dive together off the mast!

I like the different builds ya got going on here. Very nice continuation. :)

I've noticed when reading your stories, you have an interesting style, almost if a friend's telling it instead of a narrator...

Thanks and here is more story but no build:

Now we turn to yet another point of view; Areneas's. It was not till at least some days after the coronation that he learned what had happened, as, though Joshua had known about it very soon, he had told no one in the castle. He also had ruined plans, actually as a consequence of the ruined plans of William and Joshua. As he paced back and forth he realized that most Outlaws would not be in favor of the queen especially those captured, including William Navarre. He also figured that Joshua had gone to do something about his brothers capture and behind all this he knew the plan of the Navarre's which he had overheard was only to be blackened further, though it had been disturbed. He decided to pay attention to the doings of the Outlaws; the queen needed spies and he could, doubtless, use any information to his own advantage. From thence he was but a shadow lurking in the darkness!

Sorry this might seem like bumping :oops: . But here is the next part:

Image

On a bitterly cold morning while the wind hisses around the snowy mountaintops we find three lone travelers nearing the end of a most dangerous ascent to the peak of the mount of Ort Necrosis, not surprisingly named after the nearby town or Outlaws lair. "Do you not think we should turn back Captain Keeler? I believe there must be an approaching storm, and it would not be well to be caught up here in one. Beside it is clear that the mountain goat we were pursuing has escaped and night is drawing nigh." "Let us reach the top first, it would not be well to return to Navarre empty handed." When the tired men reached the top a fierce blast almost blew them off their feet. As a few drop of snow landed at their feet the Captain Keeler yelled above the wind, "Enough, let us turn back. And hurry, time is running out!" As they turned to begin the dangerous descent a crash, easily heard above the storm, rent the air. They turned and to their horror beheld a giant serpent rising out of the ice filled crater! Keeler's sword flashed out in an instant and then one of the men, losing his footing, tumbled down the cliff. As the creature brought down it's tail, Keeler waved his sword and ducked in time to avoid being crushed, then, uttering a war hoop, he slid down the slope followed closely be his friend. Thankfully, however, the serpent slithered back to its den, content to have successfully scared away the men.

Thanks dudes! Here is the next part built for CCC XI and the LC:

Image

Lord George was in a good humor. Tomorrow he and his companion were to test flight his new invention; a flying contraption, though he himself preferred to call it an "Invention". He thought that the best thing would be to fly off the peak of one of the bordering Outlaws mountains, over the dessert sands of Loreos, over the ocean, and land impressively near the queens fortress on the Island of Kings. But in the meantime plans were being made to significantly change his future…

Navarre, after having returned, received a message stating that one of the queens Nobles was going to try out an invention supposed to fly near the Outlaws border. Immediately he set out with a few men including his best General, Ralincler. As soon as they reached the border they found the machine unguarded and ready for flight on the summit of a cliff. Quickly Ralincler calculated which string they would need to cut for it to crash in a small spot with a little foliage. It was necessary for it to crash in shrubbery for their plan to work. After William had severed the precise string slightly they went to the spot were it was to crash. Swiftly they dug a shallow pit and put a net on top covering that with plucked up weeds. Then, sending the others away, Navarre and Ralincler hid to await the result…

Image

As Lord George got in the awkward and less then airworthy looking device, he thought of all he would be able to do for the queen, not even thinking that he should check that all was working well. "Adieu!" he shouted as he turned the gear, sending the thing over the cliff. For a minute it flew rather clumsily along and then the severed cord snapped sending the machine plummeting to its doom. "Is it supposed to do this?!" asked his somewhat frightened companion. "Certainly not!" replied Lord George as he attempted in vain to right the contraption. "Lets try to land there!" he exclaimed, pointing to the hidden trap. "AHHHHH!!" yelled his companion as they plunged down at top speed! Suddenly Navarre and Ralincler jumped up "Come and get me!" William called standing directly behind the pit. Then the ground gave way as the vehicle crashed right into the pit…to be continued…

Nice builds and a fun story! Still, the photos could definitely be larger; it's kind of a pain to have to click on each one for a better view and it's really easy to make them larger : when you go to copy the BB code you can choose a larger size without altering the original photo on flickr. Keep it up!

Thanks guys! Can I really make them larger? I thought that was as big as CCC allows. Anyway:

Image

Navarre, like almost all Roawians, was busy preparing for war. He had recently brought some disguises and his men were trying them out. However, William Navarre still wanted to get revenge on John of Guarmal and therefore challenged him to a dual. He figured that as he had had little fighting recently he could improve his skill at the same time as he took revenge. John accepted the challenge not knowing who he had been challenged by. A day later he arrived with some men and they assembled in the courtyard. When he saw Navarre he yelled, “Traitor! Arrest him; he is a pirate in disguise!” However William declared, “My good friend you know times are different now and a Noble is of no higher rank than an Outlaw! Besides you agreed to a dual between you and me with no interference. So turn your anger into energy. Ha!” They both charged at each other, the onlooker breathlessly awaiting the outcome. Clash! Clang! Steadily, Navarre retreated as John ferociously pushed forward. Everyone wondered why he was doing this since he could obviously hold his own. But Navarre knew what he was doing and as his opponent swung his sword at him again he dodge and ran with his back turned to his enemy. John wildly ran forward completely off guard and suddenly, as he was about to be overtaken, Navarre turned and swung his sword heavily at John. John deflected and slowed the blow with his shield but it came across William’s antagonist’s left eye throwing him backwards. As this happened Guarmals men rushed forward stopping Navarre from killing him and a melee issued. Nevertheless, Guarmals men quickly retreated taking him with them.
