Dawn Conquest II: The Turn of Power
About this creation

First off I would suggest that you start here.







Prologue



September 19, 1392, John IV King of Europe unexpectedly died from reasons still unknown. In the days following this death a new king came to power. A prince of a small province stood before the council to take the throne. On Sept. 24th, Henry Dawn became the King of Europe and would be furthermore known as King Dawn II. Spectators were shocked when Dawn announced in this inaugural speech that he further banned every religion in Europe and that citizens must obey the “Conquest” ( a religious book written by Dawn which he kept secret until he had came to power) It stated the rules in which peasants and citizens were to obey their new God, who is perceived as ‘Dawn‘. When the other religious believers refused to obey the “Conquest” and to believe that Dawn was their God, Dawn sent out every army from every country in Europe to destroy any other religion and anyone who refused to obey the “Conquest.”


September 27, 1392

Dawn Conquest II



A light rumble of thunder could be heard as it echoed overhead. The trees swayed in harmony with one another as the wind crept through their branches. A cloaked figure began to emerge from the mouth of the ravine. His soft prayer could faintly be heard over the slight gust of wind. The heavy downpour left his robe and face soaked in a light mist. He continued down the twisted path still unaware of what was happening.


Dark images flashed in his head. He thought about what happened and tried hard to remember anything that happened that would trigger an explanation for everything that was occurring. He remembered that he was sitting in the monastery studying the word of the Bible when a large flash hit his eyes. He remembered running from the monastery and into the gardens. He tried to think harder but the image of a young apprentice begging for mercy as one of the guards brought a butcher knife down on his neck kept repeating over and over in his head. He gave up and pressed onward.


A small dim light broke through the darkness revealing a small path. At first the man hesitated to approach it in fear that the guards were the source of the light. The storm grew and trees swayed back and forth each time letting out a spray of light mist that drenched the man even more. With time he decided to approach the light. Slowly he crept through the wet leaves.


The man crept onto an overpass, he was squinting to see as the rain continuously whipped his eyes. A sudden flash of light revealed a large structure lit only by the slight glow of the moon. The man peered behind him in fear and slowly made his way down the cliff to the building.


He slowly pressed forward along the cobbled path to the wooden door of the church. In respect, he removed his pack and stretched his arms. 24 hours of constant running left him exhausted. Slowly and carefully he approached the door and lifted the latch to open it.


The door opened with a slight moan. Inside he was immediately overtaken by darkness, a faint glow of light from the candles allowed him to navigate through the halls. Once inside the main hall, he saw terror struck victims. The Monks inside were lighting candles and offering a word of prayer to the sick when they could. Others wielded swords, some for the first time.


As he made his way toward the altar an elderly man came and greeted him. The elderly man embraced him and repeatedly thanked God. The dim light of the candles revealed his face. It showed no fear but a sense of relief. The man softly said, “Marcus it’s me.” In realization of who was talking to him, Marcus found himself on his knees embraced with emotion.


A young monk bowed before Marcus and presented him with a sword. Marcus took the sword with a nod and held the handle firmly in his hand. He took a few moments to watch as the sword shone in the dim light before sheathing it in his belt. With a sharp nod Marcus dismissed the young monk and made way to his father.


Marcus talked to his Holy Father for some time. His father told Marcus solemnly about what was occurring. Every once in a while, one of the sick moaned with pain. It wouldn’t be long before they found them, and it was almost certain death for those who could not keep up with the others.


Marcus spoke with an old friend and offered him a sense of hope. Eric had tried to put together some resistance fighters to make a final stand against the brutal guards. Being a deadly assassin himself Eric would always lend a helping hand to anyone in need of it.


During the climax of their conversation some of the monks came busting through the church screaming in terror. “They’re killing everyone!” one shouted. Women were leaving their children behind to seek shelter. Those who tried to surrender would have a sword thrust through their bodies.



Guards burst through the windows spreading glass throughout the floor. They instantly began cutting down survivors and throwing torches in hope of burning the Church. Monks took to arms and fought only to be sliced into pieces.


Marcus drew his sword and listened as the sound echoed throughout the halls. He watched as the blade shone in the firelight. He found himself with an immense feeling of fear. Smoke began to rise and Marcus had to squint his eyes to see where they were. He gave a swift nod to his Holy Father and looked his enemy right in the eye. Without hesitation, he charged right into the heat of battle…


The darkness has spread and taken its toll. In desperate time, most lay down and hide, but a special few draw their swords and rise to fight. Sometimes it takes a person to look deep within themselves to find their fate, and others seem destined to make a difference. The time to take a stand is here and those who lay down and hide need to draw their swords. A new age has come and a new hero must overcome the darkness and take a stand…

Stay tuned for a behind the scenes post coming up in a few days, there I'll explain the story and give out any build credits I need to.

Quoting Chris Phipson It's been KELSOFIED! I think Mark needs to look at this for inspiration for his next build, and I doubt this took you 7 months to build! hahaha. Seriously, this is an amazing piece of work! ~ Chris.
KELSOFIED, thats a new one. BUT he needs to look at this for inspiration? Please, seriously this doesn't even come close to his Apocalypsis. Not even by a mile! I think it's I who was inspired a little too much by his first installment, because my first two installments are very similar to his. : ( So similar that I thought of actually dropping the series because I was worried of what people might think. I'm working now to simplify the 3rd installment so it will have no similarities what so ever to Mark's other installments. Oh, yes and it took me about 1 and a half months to build.

Try using correct spelling on this site, as I have no idea what you are saying. If you have trouble speaking English I'd suggest using one of those translator sites to help you out.

Quoting Dennis Price Where the heck are the dancing nuns? .
They're in your backyard waiting for you. A word of warning though, watch out for the one wearing the police cap, she is not what you think she is...

Where the heck are the dancing nuns? C'mon, it's not a real medieval MOC without dancing nus . . . and bear baiting. Nice work here. The photoshop effects take nothing away from the MOC, and you're obviously not using it to distract the viewer from substandard building. A tip of the hat to you, good sir.

Wow, the photoshopping effects are amazing. To be honest, I don't know how to photoshop. But wow, I'm just amazed at how good this is. The pictures looks like you taken pictures from a lego video game (with the photoshopping too). Also, very good story line. Really like your series stories alot. Keep it up. ~ Ghostman :)

Quoting Nufalak of Balnazzar Nice. The plot seems to be hidden from us, leaving a great sense of mystery. And Jack Fonchezzz, what music? I don't hear anything.
You got to push play on the button right above the Prologue.

Quoting Family Vuurzoon Hi Dylan, Great creation and story! Suggestion: Would it be possible to make a stop-motion movie from it?
I guess, I'm not that into movie making but I can see where that could come into play.

Reminds me of Kelso's Apocolypsis..., well, the Photoshopping effects do, anyway. Great job with the build, I love the little story at the beginning.

Nicely done on the build and a great story. I am not a fan of so much photoshopping - I find it takes away from the build, but it does help to tell the story. Thanks for sharing. Lee.
