This is my entry into the MOC Olympics category earth. I thought that this would be a pretty simple category so I went for it. It turned out to be a more popular category than I thought though. I saw a couple floating rocks like this one used for the M.O. as well. I'd like to let you know that I made this before I saw those other entries. Anyways, please enjoy!!!
Once, before history was ever recorded (if you are wondering, this is an ancient story, passed on through storytellers) there was an emperor, Emperor Wan.
Emperor Wan had an army of Ninja warriors at his disposal, and he ordered them to carry out evil deeds.
Now, this angered the gods, and they warned Emperor Wan, "If you do not stop your evilness, we will be forced to destroy you."
Of course, Emperor Wan did not listen to the gods (and he was right to do so, cause there is only 1 God.. ;)) and continued in his evil deed-making.
So the gods were forced to follow through with their threat, and sent the Samurai warriors against Emperor Wan, who retaliated with his awesome ninjas.
Now, the gods took up giant pieces of ground and started throwing these at Emperor Wan and his army.
The ninjas began to tire of Emperor Wan's evilness, so they set out to destroy him, hoping it would end the war; and the only way that they could destroy Emperor Wan was to find the Holy Floating Land, and eat the mushrooms, so that they would be strong enough to defeat him.
Meanwhile, the Samurai wanted the same thing, but they wanted it for selfish reasons.
You see, the Samurai wanted to take over China, after taking out evil Wan, and rule China with an even more evil iron fist than Wan did.
So the race was on, to find the Holy Floating Land and the mushrooms it contained.
A Ninja by the name of Wong (from Hong Kong ;) I bet no one will get that reference.) found the Holy Floating Land, and climbed to the top, where he found the sacred mushrooms and ate one.
He then grew more powerful than Wan, and overthrew him. Everyone loved Wong so much, that they made him the new emperor. He was a good emperor, and treated the people with kindness.
Note: the story in this MOC was written by my awesome fifteen year old sister.
Thanks for participating in the 2011 MOC Olympics! You received a total score of 29. I'm sorry but you are not in the top 64. Please follow this link to the MOC MIT group for more chances at great prizes!
I didn't have the time to read the story, but I'm sure it's great. The MOC is also quite cool. But was the golden 1x1 round plate or "Stud" supposed to be sitting in the middle of the entrance? Once again, very nice MOC I wonder, why nobody has commented it, yet. It must be early.
