There Can Only Be One
This is my final entry into the MOB Rules contest. The category is "There can only be one".
About this creation
I tried my best to warn the fools, but they wouldn't listen. I was ridiculed and humiliated when I warned the city of the impending doom. I knew that a tidal wave would soon wipe out the coastal lands. Little did I know it would wipe out the rest of the world.

The seismic activity in recent years, the gravitational pull from the moon changing, the swelling of the seas.....all signs of things to come. I used to be a respected scientist, but the world was too full of arrogant pride.

They had their beautiful beach front homes with pools and grass. Their gorgeous park with the merry-go-round and fountain. I remember walking into their courthouse and pleading to the city council to fortify the town.

"BAH! And ruin our beautiful views and property values....have you gone MAD?!"

They shamed me that day. I began building my own fortifications. If they wouldn't listen, I would show them just how mad I truly was. It took me four long years to finish my castle on top of the rock outcrop on the coast. They called me names...filthy names. But I knew that if they were too ignorant to heed my warnings, then there could only be one outcome.

The day turned gloomy as I glanced out to sea. I could feel the tremendous earthquakes, and even my chest hurt as I could imagine the weight of the moon crushing us. I watched as the sea swallowed itself...preparing for the final outcome. A vomit so foul and wretched, that I could only turn my head in horror.



There was no time to warn the city as the waves roared to a tremendous height. Luckily my calculations were correct, and my fortifications held firm. The whole world suffered that day. I am all that is left in this world. I suppose there truly can only be.....one.



Notes: This is my final entry for the MOB rules game. It's been fun, but I sure wish there were a LOT less drop-outs and DQ's.

For this one, I assumed that everyone would either go with two ideas for this topic...Highlander, or beating each other senseless in a Gladiator style death match. I wanted to take a little bit of a risk and do something a bit more unique then that.

While I did take close to 20 pics of the build, I decided to stay true to the category and give you only one pic....."There can only be one" just makes me feel that one photo should be present.

The background for my pic is the real sky earlier this evening during a thunderstorm. I was able to catch this pic right before being struck down by lightning and dumped on with rain. We had a short power outage as well, so I'm just thankful it cleared up enough for me to wrap this up. Hope you all enjoy!!

Looks great, especially the castle! And thanks for the tip on the Chrome Trooper, it's not a Cylon, but it's cool.

Quoting Heath 'kik36' Flor Quoting Shannon Young "DQ'ed for not building - FLARE" -----Round 1 MOB Rules contest. I don't fear drop outs my friend. And yes that was my smack back. :P
My non-smack-response: I was moving. I wasn't able to build. I was extremely disappointed I wasn't able to enter, I must reassure you. My smack-response: Your mom was a drop out.... in the hospital. Heehehehehehehe... I do enjoy smacking so much... nomnomnom...

I'm really liking your micro-cities! The story is great, and the wave is awesome. I really like how the black studs under the arch of the castle kind of look like a portcullis. Good luck, and I'll root for ya :P

One picture = brave. Microscale = brave. Put that together and you sir, must have a set of big brass ones to go for this in the last round. I do like it though.
