Marooner's Lagoon
About this creation
Many pirates have disappeared over the years with no explanation after being taken into custody of the Royal Navy. There have been many rumors about what actually happens to those who disappear, but none have been even remotely close to the actual process. The king wanted to make pirates disappear without murder being the way, so his officers in the Royal Navy found a secluded cove, and set up a makeshift paradise. A place that is impossible to find without directions, and a place the pirates won't want to leave once there. I give you Marooner's Lagoon. A pirates paradise hidden deep inland of an unknown island connected to the sea by a maze layout of caves. The prisoner's are taken there blindfolded, and left there to basically life a life of luxury for a pirate, the only downside was the lack of rum, but they eventually get over it.
























































Fourth Wall:

I started this almost immediately after my Brickworld MOCs had been disassembled, I wanted to use some of the techniques mentioned in the presentations: like the colors visible through the trans-plates for the water. The water was also my take on the Tweetpunk Layout in the Michigan ballroom, though I can't remember the builder's name, my hat goes off to you! That's nearly 1000 1x2 trans clear plates(Hooray for PaB!)

Hope you enjoyed my largest MOC to date!

That's very good. Some of the in water techniques are very nicely done. After grabbing a bunch of studless trans clear tiles from a LEGO store PAB I've been thinking of doing something similar to the multi-blue water effect you have there. Very nice.

That is sweet! very good indeed!
Quoting Deus Otiosus The rockwork is excellent, but the transcullent water looks a bit like ice...
That's because the water is so clear sometimes. In this case, I guess it was.
