[synthesizers and horns]Previously, on Adams and Eve...
"My name is Lieutenant Michael John Adams, United States Navy. We were the crew of an experimental spacecraft...""Sardaks take prisoners to great city. Grug never see inside, but many, many people. Sardaks, slaves. Many slaves. Great city has high wall, tall enough to keep out Big-Teeth. Many guards.""When we left the twentieth century, the prevailing scientific opinion was that man and dinosaur did not coexist!"
"My name is Doctor Eve Carson-""Carson, Eve. One entry found. Historical records. Medical doctor aboard the Pegasus, an experimental Earth-to-Mars spaceship developed by Suji Yamaguji and launched in the final decades of the twentieth century.""These people... their ancestors were just like us. Marooned here.""System designation, main computer interface, ark ship designated The Hopeful. Using. Experimental. Untested. Warp. Drive. Launched. April. Twenty. Second. Twenty. One. Eighty. Nine. Four thousand passengers and crew. Last survivors of a doomed Earth."
"This crystal throne on which I sit gives me the power to control those around me... to restore my wounded soldiers... to see the future, primate. A future where the Sardak Empire reigns supreme, and alone, free of the taint of lesser tribes.""You're insane! You're a monster!""I am the Emperor of the Sardaks, and I command the world."
"The crystal - the lost piece of the Sardak crystal that Urr gave me - I figured out how to use it, but I was captured by the guards and one of their captains got his scaly hands on it.""Even if you were to somehow seek your way to the treasure vault, you would search for years-""The Sardak Princess... it was almost as though she could sense the crystal I had hidden in my pocket. If I can somehow convince her to help me, I might be able to track it down wherever it is!"
"You will die beneath the blade of the Sardak Champion, as all primates before you have done, and I will use your crystal to gain power over my father the Emperor, and rise above my fated role.""Lylyth, you traitorous-! When I get my hands on you-!""Goodbye, primate. I found your company... amusing. I hope I will find your death equally so."
"It has slain the Sardak Champion!" "I'd be more worried about yourself!"
"Eeee! You said you would not harm me!""Relax, Princess. I said I'd never hurt a lady. Besides, I don't want to kill you... I still need you to help me find Grug and the crystal!"
"I thought you said the high priest's chambers would be unbarred-""The doors are not locked!""That's one way to put it. And keep your voice down. I knew I should have freed Grug first.""There is no time! The high priest will not be alone for long! He is the only one with the key to the treasure vault, and if its absence is noted, alarms will surely be raised!""No more than they already are after the send-off they gave me at the arena!">Fight>Sneak>PrincessRoll a d12 and link to this post for whatever you do, please!

Some of the pictures are slightly blurry because to get the shots looking out the windows, I raised the baseplate up on some Duplo supports to get the proper angle of looking down on the slums of slavetown so the floor was a little wobbly.

>>3788202Nicely done mate. What's your flickr/instagram or whatever?I'd really love to see more of your setups in /lg/ as well. I'm getting into Lego-oriented photography, and I'd like to get together a graphic novel kind of thing, similar to Ludgonius or what you do.Nice work quest anon

"We'd better keep this other cartridge, even if it did misfire. It might work the second time, and it would be a shame to throw it away. Hmm... this crate is in pretty good condition as well. We'd better take that back to camp... uh, Suji?""Ah, Miss Carson?""Is there something the matter? You don't seem quite yourself-""Ah, Miss Carson, I assure you, I am perfectly fine. I am just marveling at how resourceful you have become in such a relatively short period of time! Why, I remember when we first met, you told me that you had never so much as been on a camping trip!""Well... we had better get started working on the shelter. Why don't you take that meal back to the camp and put it where nothing else will find it?""Ah, Miss Carson, right away."
"Ah, Miss Carson?""Yes?""Do you suppose we will be able to visit the site of this hologram computer soon? I am very eager to see you operate it!""Well... let's worry about the shelter right now. We can go back there later.""Of course. My apologies. I have not been here as long as you have."

I can help you rescue your friend!">Lock her in the vault>Take her with you>Something elseRoll a d12 and link to this post for whatever you do, please! To roll, put dice+1d12 in the Options field!
Rolled 2 (1d12)>>3792664>>Take her with you
>>3792664>Take her with you>Something elseTrust isn't easily given, she can start being useful...by being our "hostage" if guards come
>>3792680You forgot to roll, anon.
Rolled 2 (1d12)>3792664>>Take her with you
Rolled 7 (1d12)>>3792680>>3792687whoops
>>3792693You've saved us, anon.
What kind of camera do you use to get close up and small enough to fit in the lego sets?
"Not the vault! Please, have mercy! Spare my life and take me with you!""Alright, fine, I'll take you with me, Lylyth-""Oh, Primate!""-but I'm keeping a close eye on you. We've got a saying where I come from about being fooled twice."
"Do you still not trust me, primate? Even after I saved you from the guard?""Lylyth, if you want me to trust you, you're going to have to-"
"That's far enough, slave!"
"Guards, help me! This primate captured me and holds in his hand the lost piece of the Sardak Crystal! Riches to the one who slays him!"
[metal clanging on metal]"Die, primate! Die that I may have the glory of your death!""Mister, I've seen enough of your kind die today and believe me..."
"...you can have all the glory you want!"
"Last chance to back off, pal! You saw what I did to your friend!""With his death, glory and riches shall both be m-"
[metal clanking on stone]
"What was that?""What was what, primate?""You sold me down the river the moment those guards showed up!""Only to lure them into trusting me so that I could gain the advantage!"
"Or maybe you saw that things weren't going as you had hoped and decided to switch to the winning team.""Oh, primate, you are too hesitant to trust me! We must work together, for both our benefit!""That's what worries me."
Lieutenant Mike and Doctor EveAre astronauts out of time
The Earth they found wasn't theirs at all]
A world full of wondersAnd danger great and small
Will they ever get back homeWill they find a waaaaay
Will they ever do the thingsThat words can only saaaaaaaay
That's it for now, and good thing too because my table is an absolute mess with all the set pieces that I threw together on the fly for this game! The only things I had constructed going in were the temple and the apartments of the Princess, and the quarters of the high priest that I made right before I started the game.Easter eggs and small talk to follow, but if you want to catch up first, all the previous episodes of Adams and Eve (including images) are archived on suptg, along with almost every other episode of Lego Quest from 2010-2019:http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=lego%20questThe official Lego Quest wiki has entries for almost everything that's ever appeared in an episode, and will probably have some more stuff about this setting before too long:https://legoquest.fandom.com/wiki/Lego_Quest_WikiAnd if you're on twitter, you can get notified whenever a new episode begins or an ongoing episode resumes:@EndmanOfFuturonThanks for playing, everybody!
>>3792869Night boss! See you around next time.I swear I've seen those names before...
>>3787133While the allusions, references, and outright ripoffs of several other media properties have already been mentioned in past threads, the inflection of the hologram computer (as well as some other bits) is inspired by a very dear and very low-budget sci-fi show called The Starlost.>>3787152Duplo blocks are great for lots of reasons, but primarily in this game because they fill a lot of space easily and their oversize appearance calls to mind the architecture of the ancient world, which is the look I try to emulate with the public works of the Sardak Empire.>>3787215>>3787216I checked; this is the first time Mike ever punched a Sardak.>>3787496Lylyth's sleeveless dress is made from a combination of the Star Wars Darth Maul torso, a pre-1978 minifig lower half, and a 1x2 plate to make her the same height as a standard minifig.>>3787684This shot used up every single one of the 2x6 tan bricks that I had free, and as you can see by looking in the top left corner it wasn't quiiiiiiiite enough to fill in the entire pit but I think it turned out pretty good.>>3788115Telescope in the background was recycled from a previous shoot>>3789409This scene took longer to set up than I had planned because I remembered too late that the key to running this game is to have a lot of tall plants already assembled.>>3789417I need to get some more of these large curved panels because I had to take apart another unrelated build to retrieve them for this game>>3789427Suji of course was last seen in the first episode of Adams and Eve during the intro narration>>3789640This flare gun cartridge was already suspect from earlier when Mike found it wet.>>3789787This shot is an homage to Jurassic Park III
>>3789965Mike actually rode a pteranodon (a.k.a. a Wing-Teeth) but he never tamed or named it.>>3789975No mating for these two - Mike first saw this newcomer outside the secret entrance to the Sardak city, when it was tangling with Big-Teeth. You can tell they're different species because the other one has blue arms and a stubbier, spikier tail.>>3790119>>3790122At the beginning of the first episode, I just spread a bunch of pieces around the baseplate that I thought looked like they could be part of a spaceship, but then when a player rolled really well to build a shelter I realized that I could make a cute little cabin with a couple of the round pieces, and I was pretty proud of myself because all of the pieces that were used to make it were the random parts that I had spread around before. I have some ideas for what to do to renovate it with some organic additions.>>3790855The last time we saw one of these prepackaged meals was when Mike and Eve attempted to use their last one as a sacrificial offering for the Warrior People's holiday of First-Fire.>>3791775These scenes where Mike has a 1x1 bandage on his chest were a real pain to shoot because the tile kept sliding around and revealing the sticky-tack underneath, which I wouldn't notice until I got the picture set up, taken, and onto my computer, and in a couple of cases I had already torn down the set and built a new one using the pieces before I realized the problem.>>3792038Turns out a crocodile looks a lot bigger if you give it a tyrannosaur tail. This scene was shot over and over as I kept adding more details, but since it was hard to keep everything balanced, I didn't want to lose the shot and have to start over so I wanted to ensure that I at least had SOMETHING if the whole thing collapsed.
>>3792947>You can tell they're different species because the other one has blue arms and a stubbier, spikier tail.I assumed it was just gender differences, hence my mating call suggestion
>>3792311The rare indoor public works guardian statues. I like to think that they're so low here to give those present a sense that they're being watched>>3792324This vault door went through a couple of changes but is pretty much exactly how I pictured it would be. Doesn't open very far but that's OK because you can't see the mechanism this way.>>3792335It's going to be fun re-sorting all of the pieces that I used for Sardak treasure...>>3792442I felt like I wasn't getting enough floating objects in this game so I was happy when I had the idea to dunk Lylyth>>3792453>>3792455I took a few shots in between here but I wasn't happy with how the images turned out and felt that it didn't contribute anything to the story so I cut it. Always annoying when I end up wasting time with stuff that ends up on the cutting room floor.>>3792609I went through a few ideas for a heavy yet handheld treasure before realizing that a Sardak statue would be perfect
>>3792746>What kind of camera do you use to get close up and small enough to fit in the lego sets?I use this Canon PowerShot 360HS, which I chose specifically because it had a very low lens and was small enough to easily fit into a Lego set. I had an older PowerShot that worked very well for this game so I'm happy with the brand overall.Thanks again for playing and I'm happy to answer questions or take more pictures!
