About this creation
As he enters the crypt, he feels the cold shiver down his spine as clearly as he would a winter's wind.








No others would come with him. They were too afraid. And with good reason, for none who had ventured here had ever returned.








The demon spawn that called this catacomb home had taken everything from him. His wife, his son… his reason for living. He had come to take it back.








This foul creature sustained his everlasting evil with the blood of the innocent. Flowing here in a grotesque perversion of the serine waters from the fountain in the town square.







He had come here with one goal. The monster must be stopped. The madeness must end and the evil vanquished. The sun would rise soon, but here in this dark, dank crypt, it would do him little good. He could only rely on himself and what he had brought with him.








So close he could almost taste revenge and feel the cold steel as it sliced the creature’s flesh and released him from his living death. There he was… so close… within his grasp. A bolt from his crossbow through the heart, and sever the demon's head and it would all be over.








He had thought the evil one to be already in slumber. Easy prey… this was not the case. He would have to fight for his vengence… he wouldn’t have it any other way. He wanted to see the fear in the demon’s eyes when he struck the final blow. He wanted to hear the scream that would come from hell itself. He wanted… death.

It’s strange how men are given what they desire. For death he wanted and death is what greeted him there.








Face to face with death incarnate, he held fast. No backing down for cowardace was not within him. His grip like a vice on his sword as the Vampire rose from his coffin. The time was now.








The demon came forth, his eyes red with rage. How dare this peasent invade his sanctuary? The Vampire would not allow this tresspass to go unanswered. When he was done with this fool, he would exact his own vengence on the town for allowing the human to think he could possibly stand a chance against one so ancient and powerful as he…






Who shall overcome in this epic battle of good versus evil? You decide…






Fourth Wall Commentary: (With bonus behind the scenes features)

HAPPY HALLOWEEN MOCPAGES! It’s that time of year again when the leaves fall and ghosts and goblins run the streets in seach of treats. This is THE favorite holiday around my house and I just wanted to share some of that with you all.

This actual build only took me about 6 hours total. The issue I was having was that my daughter was sick last week and my wife was sick this week so my LEGO time was cut to nearly nothing. I didn’t think I would get this done in time for halloween but luckily, here we are.







Here’s a close up of the blood fountain. The lighting that I used for the story didn’t show this as well as I wanted but hey, that’s what behind the scenes stuff is for! The lighting by the way was done with two small candles. Kelso made it look so easy when he used that trick on his Apocolypsis part 2… notice I said “made it LOOK easy.” Maybe it’s time for Chris to invest in a better camera?





And that’s it for now MOCpages! Have a safe, fun and Happy Halloween!

Till next time true believers…

They were just sign ups in the Olympics group. But that last round was the final round for dark matches. Sorry. I'll be doing another MOCpages wide competition sometime in January though so stay tuned! ~Chris.

OK, a guy posted a link to an air craft carrier on one of your MOCs, you commented on it saying it was great, it was, but to bad it is a mega blox set, he just added a few Lego bricks to it. On the stud of the large tile pieces you can see a circle around the stud instead of a straight line- http://mocpages.com/image_zoom.php?mocid=137075&id=/user_images/30037/12485338513 It is sort of funny how nobody noticed it =P now, to review your MOC. Overall fantastic job very well done with all the detail, the pillar, the fountain of blood, and magnificent story.

Stinkin' ugly vampires! As Steef said, it does look biger in the story. The Bloodfalls are cool, and if you want trans-red cheese slopes, buy some space police. They have the red and blue. Dirty little lawn gnome? I like the sound of that! You should build a scupture!

You posted up against the Goldman and managed to get double the comments. I don't need my travel agent to tell you that you've arrived. Okay, I don't really have any such agent, just William Shatner and a dirty little lawn gnome. But this is all beside the point. You've totally outdone yourself here. You have the skills babe. Totally.

Quoting Shannon Young This is disgusting and unfit for children -- a fountain of blood, indeed! Please stick to lewd innuendo and naughty acronyms.
Yes sir! I'll get right on that with my next post, sir!
Quoting Matija Grguric Nice MOC. And only a 6 hours of building. Very fast.
Not always a good thing. Ask Mrs. Phipson.
Quoting Steef de Prouw I thought you had made some sort of moat with intricate system of bridges and suchlike (the picture after the fountain suggests this
Although I do like how this turned out, your idea about the system of bridges intriges me...
Quoting Crimso Giger You've done this in 6 hours ? Man you're fast. COOL !
See my response to Matija for this one.
Quoting Mark Kelso Hope ya had fun with those candles. When I took apart the Apocalypsis MOCs, I realized there were some casualties in the form of melted parts. Here's hoping you were accident-free! Great job, pal!
Aside from burning the holy you know what out of my arm a few times all is well. You hear that kids? Lego good, fire bad.

Quoting Heather LEGOgirl You posted up against the Goldman...
Believe me, I seriously thought about waiting a day when I saw he had posted. (Dirty lawn gnome... is that what you call him these days?)
Quoting Dave Kaleta Nice job Kels... I mean Chris. No, but you did a great job. I did keep waiting for the other shoe to drop, but somehow you kept it clean (just like the build).
Thanks Shaddix, I mean Sterling, I mean Xandegar, I mean Drake, I mean... I'm telling you people, we need to start numbering the Daves around here.
Quoting Dave Sterling ...and I see you're taking lessons from Eylar on the lighting now.
Kelso on this one actually, but thanks! I'll stick the lightbulb up there next time for ya though.
Quoting JD Luse Wow, I'm starting to look forward to your builds more than your commentary. Call me sick, but I kinda like that bloodfall. Though, trans-red cheese slopes might work better on the top.
Glad someone is... HAHAHA oh, and if I actually had any, I probably would have used them.

I had a feeling this had been visible by candlelight. You really gave the impression that the crypt was much larger than it actually was. Impressive. Unfortunately, here in Sweden Halloween is not as grandly celebrated. Still though, my Legoratory does actually have a wonderful view of the cemetery (including iron gate, old gravestones and "Autumny" colored leaves on the trees). Happy Halloween! Good day

Very cool work there. I like how you made the tombs in the walls and the blood fountain. I thought you had made some sort of moat with intricate system of bridges and suchlike (the picture after the fountain suggests this), and was surprised at seeing is was a tomb island in the end! I love it when a story and a MOC fit so snugly together that you can actually feel the suspension.

Please tell me they're going to break into a song and dance number in part two! "Just me . . . and my . . . vaaaaammmmm pire!" Great looking build -- thanks for taking up the slack by having a hero actually battling the bad guy . . . I think a sheet of typing paper in front of the flame (not close enough to catch fire, obviously) might have taken off just enough of the sharp glare in a few of your shots.

Quoting Kevin Fedde Excellent build all around. Though the one thing that could have made it over the top awesome would have been to somehow include a light under the blood fountain. That and maybe make the vampire a bit more ... sinister. That just looks like someones Hippy grandpa...

Glad you added the BTS shots; the lighting did not do justice to that magnificent blood fountain. You should upgrade the camera to better show off your ability to make small sets seem so large(I'm sure the Mrs. appreciates that)much like you did with 'Mr. and Mrs. Sterling'. Anyway, good health to you and your family and Happy Halloween!~H

Thanks Luke. It was but hopefully I dodged the bullet. They're much better now so we'll see what happens.

Chris, this is one of you better MOCs that you built. However, there are a few things that bother me, but I'll start with what I liked. The walls of the crypt were one of the best parts of it, but I think it should have been purely tiles and headlight bricks. A mix of grey and bley alternating in a brick-like pattern would have really made this stand out. Also, you could have used mulitple random 1x1 tiles and plates to add some texture. The lighting used gave it some real emotion. However, the clean, nice water is not something I expect to see in a demen's crypt. Instead of tiles, you could have used plates and bricks in a variety of colors, on thier side. I also disliked the blood fountain, it seemed very sloppy to me, although I don't have a solution for that. Despite all the critisism, this is a solid MOC. I apoligise for any spelling and grammer mistakes, as iPhones are not a good place to write an essay.

I was sooo waiting for the punchline, but it never came. I was hoping for death incarnate to pull a "barrelman" with the coffin (you know, reveal the 'member' upon opening the coffin... Oh well... But nonetheless, excellent build and story! Cool lighting technique!

  October 29, 2009
Amazing. It looked like it was built in separate sets, and it's only one instead :) Great rythm in the narration, it doesn't keep from the pics and each part is short enough to keep the page alive. Also you used that "vague" style I like so much, allowing the reader to set the story in any background they can imagine. And it looks like the Wild Ride was fatal for that poor guy with the green head :D
