Buff up your bricks ye scally-waggs, for today we are here to announce our very first Classic-Pirates.com Community Build!
For all of you who don't know what a community build is:
A community build is a building challenge open to all EB members. Basically, The staff/volunteers make a list of different buildings that would be in a town back in the late 1700's. Then, each person chooses a building that they would like to build.
To sum it up, You will be building a pirate era town out of LEGO.
1. The build will officially run from January 4th to March 15th.
2. The staff/judges reserve the right to revoke any entry that does not apply to the rules.
3. If you take a spot, tell us, (so you don't get annoyed when somebody else builds the same thing first).
4. Images no larger than 800 x 600 please, and a maximum of 7 per MOC unless you post smaller images.
5. Registration is open to any member, regardless of number of posts , etc.
6. Try to keep the violence to a minimum.
7. You must enjoy making MOCs (though this is a given) and be able to give, as well as take constructive criticism.

9. Registration will take place in this thread. Post your entries here, in the entry thread.
Don't hesitate to ask questions !!!
The Golden Rule of this Community Build: Have fun
Revenge! The redcoats are executing their pirate prisoners, to avenge their fallen comrades. All seems lost for the pirates as the last three of the crew line up down range of the imperial muskets. In a last ditch effort Peg-leg Pasco kicks a banana peel under the foot of his executioner and jumps off the side of the building into the churning seas below. He begins swimming for land with one thought on his mind, Revenge!
After the great Pirate-Imperial war of 1789 was over, an era of peace between the two enemies began. Laughter, beer, and many great stories were shared between Pirates and Imperials.
But anger and resentment still lied deep inside both sides. And instead of taking out their anger on each other, they found a common enemy. Seagulls. Loud, annoying, and messy, seagulls were the one thing both sides hated. And so began the great sport of Seagull Blasting, where the Pirates and Imperials would compete to see who could shoot down more seagulls using a cannon. In the background the big wigs of both sides were making bets, because neither side wanted to stop looking for treasure...

Eurobricks member Nate has constructed Port Kingston for the Pillage the Village contest! At the year 1762, the peace treaty was signed. To remember this year the date was put on the government building in Port Kingston. Nate hasn't only been working on the date in the wall, he also made a splendid ship and port buildings with it!
Eurobricks member Evildead has entered the Large division in PTV2 with his Royale Trading Post. Build on the high rock called St. Ann's Cliff. Now there is finally peace, the rest returned to the island again! With great details and much more nice aspects this entry is a very good one!
Make sure to check Royale Trading Post by Evildead in the forum!
Following a chance discovery of a secluded island tribe, local pirates struck up a bargain to turn a small part of the island into a safe retreat from Imperials. In exchange for some treasure the islanders allowed the pirates to come and go and conduct their business on the island. The pirates were satisfied with the arrangements and enjoyed their time with the natives, even accepting the strange vegetarian sacrifice ceremonies that took place from time to time.
The ship, named The Seeker, sailed out on the 6th of August and 6 weeks later it had reached the coast of an vast country. One of the sailors caught the sight of a some smoke between the trees and when the ship approached the shoreline they could see some people on land. At this moment Lieutenant Jones is on his way to make the very first contact with this unknown culture. Will they be friendly and a potential trade partner, or maybe aggressive with no interest of becoming servants under the mighty Empire? The crew on board of The Seeker with Captain Brown in command is waiting with caution.
