I have a story mapped out and 17 minifigs built to match. I just need someone to take his pictures and let me use his pieces. Unfortunately a two week extension will not help me because I will be out of state training for my new job. If I am lucky I will get a restricted done.
My restricted entry for LoR GC XV: The Battle for Fýrdraca in the Battle in the Ruins category.
Trenton and his Loreos relief troops joined with a group of surviving Garheim soldiers a few days after the first battle for Fýrdraca. Together the combined Roawian force began the journey through the jungle to meet up with the main force of the battle's survivors. Not far from the coast, where the palm trees began to give way to the jungle proper, a ruined tower, hollowed out by fire and overgrown, kept it's lonely vigil. As the passed under the shadow of that tower arrows flew from the underbrush and, with a brutal war-cry, the Lenfald and Outlaw forces sprang their ambush.

Lenfald / Bignette / Run though the Jungle: "Jungle Ambush"
The first line of defense for the Lenfel forces on Fýrdraca is the dense jungle surrounding their warcamps. Their superior woodcraft and knowledge of the geography allows them to move undetected and harry the advancing Loreesi and Garhiem columns constantly with deadly guerrilla attacks.
Under the direction of Hans Zarkan and Jaecar Talon, the area surrounding the war camps has been laced with carefully laid traps and ambush points. Sappers have dug pits in dried stream beds and other open areas, then covered them carefully with soil and vegetation. Here, an unfortunate column of Loreesi troops has stumbled into such a pit trap, while a hidden band of scout snipers lets fly their arrows to finish the job.

Garheim/Unrestricted/Battle in the Ruins Battle In the Ruins In a clearing not far from the main temple grounds and river, another smaller temple was found, presumably for certain rituals. Here, a small contingent of Outlaws and Lenfels have set up a reserve camp to support the Free Forces of Roawia should the Garhims break through.
Here, Sir Micah Silver leads the reinforcements from Grimfell in a flanking attempt on the Lenfels. Having broken through the camp in two places, the battle is leaning towards a Garhim and Loreesi victory.
Bonus Category, Best all-Lego Scene entry here. The Outlaws could not be expected to ignore the super awesome underground caves and grotto's of the ruined temples which they guarded; a ritual seemed in order, to bid the dark powers (which may exist only in their imaginations) aid their fighting at break of day:
Lenfald / Bignette / Run though the Jungle: Cliff Ambush
"Patience" I whisper in a hushed voice. We had been tracking a lone group of Loreos/Garheim men heading south, most likely trying to reunite with the rest of the main invading force. While the rest of my squad, myself included hated chasing men all over the jungle I knew it was necessary. Picking off soldiers before they could become a stronger force would be essential if we were to win Fýrdraca. "Ember, we have been waiting here for hours!" States Arya, a new member of my squad. "They will come" I say calmly. The annoyance of the squad dies down once again and the loud singing of the topical birds are the only thing that can be heard. We had gone ahead of this Loreos force in hope of ambushing them in the valley which I knew lay ahead a short distance from our current position. We had set up our camp just above a narrow ledge. And this is where we had waited. Hours ticked by. As the sun began to set doubt was starting seed in my own mind. Was I right? Would they come this way? This valley was one of the easier ways to traverse the thick jungles of Fýrdraca. Most of the valley was swamp, but there were ledges on the side of the opposing cliffs that were wide enough for people to go single file along them. These ledges provided a way to stay relatively hidden while staying away from the dangers of the swamps. Just as I was about to call it a day I heard a cough. I glance at my fellow rangers. They all heard it too. We all silently got into the positions I had given them. Once again we hear a cough, this time louder. From where I am posed I can just make out the bright red of a Loreos plume coming around a turn the ledge. From what I can see there was around 13 men, all oblivious to the fate that awaited them. As the group came closer I could see who had alerted us to their presence. A Garheim crossbowman. Red rashes streaked his face. He wouldn't be the first person to be prey of the many viruses that lurk in these jungles. The men continue along the pass, having to go sideways at a narrow point just above us. I give the signal. Arrows fly.
My first entry for Global Challenge XV with another one to follow shortly.
The KC has discussed an extension and have agreed to an extra two weeks.
The GC will now end at midnight on Sunday the 6th August - so hopefully that will give everyone a little extra time to finish(or start!) some more entries! No further extensions will be granted for this GC.
