Hello everyone! The second installment of Potyomkins' travels which is less story driven and more, erhm, action-packed I guess?!  :D

Anyway a quick recap; the brothers were banned from their community for reasons better left unmentioned. Once informed by a traveling salesman they decided to set course to Ærden. To get there, however, they'd first have to tackle a pretty challenging descend of a former mountain stream. So guess what we'll be looking at today?! Enjoy!



03-01 | The youngest brother, Benjamin, was visibly shaken by the daunting prospect and had chosen to stay behind, for now at least. He looked on nervously as his siblings slowly dissolved into the depths. 




03-02 | Giant boulders flanked the narrow gorge left and right, making it impossible to keep sight of each other. They'd occasionally let out a shout though, which eerily bounced of the steep slopes and made it hard to tell where it came from. But at least they'd each know the other was still alive.




03-03 | Coming around the bend, the oldest grew more confident and straddled the horse. The animal felt otherwise though and was reluctant to move his feet more than a single step at a time.


After a while the gorge leveled off a bit and they decided on a quick break to work out the logistics.

Obviously someone had to go up again and take down Benjamin along with the other two horses, of course. Then two of them would have to go up again to bring down the first wagon, rinse and repeat for the second wagon. In short it'd be pretty time-consuming so we're going to fast-forward a bit.  ;D


Yay the first mosaic! Click for full size.


03-04 | They're halfway through with the second wagon, which gave less trouble than anticipated. Gravity worked in their favor and the brothers just needed to steer clear of obstacles. Their primary concerns were the axles, if one would break they'd be literary stuck between a rock and a hard place.




03-05 | A bit further down still and the oldest brother again takes the lead. It requires a great deal of his skill to keep both the horses in check, let alone steer them in the right direction.




03-06 | Despite the inherent risk he orders to make haste soon after as daylight already starts to fade. The last thing they want is to spend the night trapped in here.




03-07 | Finally the steep mountain flanks recede and the riverbed broadens. Suddenly Benjamin, now in the lead, stops. 'Do you guys hear that?!', he yells while at the same time gesturing for his brothers to be quiet. They listen closely for what seems an eternity. Then out of the forest below arises a faint, yet familiar sound. . .

Thanks but I've gotta ask: you're familiar with the sound a Bigfoot makes?!  ???  :D 




Not much for today. First of all Vester's comment reminded me a few years ago Dedgren / David  proclaimed the 31th of August No Lurker Day. And what do you know, it's the 31th of August today, so. .



. . lurkers, come out of the shadows, go to your favorite MD and/or BAT thread and leave a comment. It'll be appreciated for sure!  :thumbsup:


The seasonal mmps then are ready. In addition I've made a Horse 'n Carriage mmp pack. Both are ready to go and will be available as soon as I figure out how to actually upload stuff to the LEX. In the meantime, enjoy the breakdown of content below.




Get ready for the dreaded invasion of unscrutineerd stuff!   ;D



Finally, there were great teaser posts recently which reminded me this MD has been in the running almost three months and I haven't posted a single teaser yet! Time to set the record straight.




Bye for now! Erik.
