The battle in The Strait of Division had begun! I, Avelese, have been given the command to lead troops into the strait. I have been dropped off on an island and wait. The plan is to have one of our allies' ship smash an Enalican ship off course and into the island we are at. Then, we will throw our grappling hooks over the ship to keep it steady while my men and I attack it. Now we wait....... Hold on! The there's an Enalican ship headed this way! It's going to crash!!! Men, get ready!!!!!
The battle had begun!!!!
The dwarf, Imgil, slid down the grappling hook...
And slammed into the Deserter, knocking him off the ship!
Avelese soon slid down behind the dwarf and began to fight the pirates.
Suddenly, a pirate landed on the cliff. However, the Nerogueian was prepared.
Meanwhile, the Nerogueian Captain took out a pirate...
The fighting continued.
Some Nerogueians were hit by arrows and didn't even make it to the ship.
Unfortunately, the Captain was surrounded on both sides and was speared. He fell...
Meanwhile, the Nerogueian on the cliff killed his opponent...
And the pirate fell into the water below.
Meanwhile, Avelese dispatched one of the pirates that speared the Nerogueian captain.
Another Nerogian prepared to jump aboard... But he did not know the Deserter was waiting...
And as the Nerogueian jumped, the Deserter sliced him in half!
The fighting was brutal...
Seeing his comrades die, this pirate prepared to jump down and help out his fellow pirates.
Meanwhile, Avelese took out another pirate, knocking him overboard.
Then Avelese went to take on the captain,
While Imgil was taking on another pirate.
The fighting continued...
On the longboat, the Deserter was finishing off Nerogueian troops left and right. He knocked one poor soul into the water... Where a shark was waiting!
The soldier panicked! And tried to swim away form the shark!
But alas, the shark was quicker, and soon the Nerogueian was gone....
One Nerogueian, upon seeing his comrades fall, jumped off the cliff!...
And landed on the longboat, ready to face the Deserter!
Immediately, their sword's were clashing.
Meanwhile, Imgil and Avelese were taking out pirates left and right. Imgil even took out one of the head pirates! Imgil smashed the pirate with his axe...
And the pirate flew into the air! AAAAAARRRRGGGHHHH!!!!!!
And came splashing down into the water! (Jaws music...)
Upon seeing the shark, the pirate immediately knew he was a goner...(Jaws music louder)
And he was right!
At that moment, on the longboat, the struggle continued. However, the Deserter had the upper hand!
Seeing the Nerogueian's plight, the Nerogueian commander on shore jumped into the water...
And waded through it toward the longboat to try and save his fellow soldier's life.
Deserter: I have you now! Nerogueian! (unbeknownst, the commander was closing in)
The Nerogueian commander got to the boat just before the Deserter finished off the Nerogueian.
The somewhat bewildered Deserter turned around quickly, only to be met by the Nerogueian's sword...
And with one quick slice, the troublesome Mythron deserter was finished off.
They then went and finished off the rest of pirates with the others.
Meanwhile, Avelese and the captain were in a struggle. Avelese at last thought he had the captain...
Until the captain pulled Avelese overboard! And into the water they both went!
Captain: I have you now Avelese! At least if I die I will have the satisfaction of knowing I killed you!
The captain, however, didn't know what was lurking behind him!...
And soon the captain of the ship was no more!
Avelese knew immediately the danger he was in... He had his elven-sword and shield ready, although he was not sure if it would be of use...
But then, a shout was heard and Imgil, the dwarf, launched himself straight at the shark!
The dwarf smashed the beast's head with his axe, killing it instantly, saving Avelese's life!
Avelese: Well, it looks like you have saved my life once more Imgil! For that, I am eternally grateful!
Imgil: Not a problem my Commander!

The ship deck.
Another photo of the whole build. This is my largest (and best!) MOC I do believe.
This is really great! The only things I would change are these: Don't mix fleshy with yellow, take better pictures, and finally, work on your violence. It looks strange when their legs are cut off and there is no blood.
