|Jacob's LEGO: The Tidal Delta and The Seafarers||[ Contents | News | RSS feeds ]|
Here are some ideas for a new LEGO theme. Originally I got the idea for this theme back in the previous century (1995). The cultures in this theme are described in terms of their energy and food sources.
A society in a tidal delta. Lots of water. Tides covering and uncovering areas. The people there lives in cities built in trees in the swamp. They are fishermen and alligator hunters.
Robin Hoodsets, but with more mangrove like roots. Cottages built in the trees. Hanging bridges connects the trees.
The Seafarers (there has to be a better word for this) is inspired by some east asian societies. They are living their whole lives on boats. Fishing and trading, as they move from place to place. The boats should be of a reasonable size to house a family. Something like 12 by 36 knobs. My problem here is how to make smaller sets. Maybe some small fishing boats.
On their travels The Seafarers will occassionally pass by the Tidal Delta.
Pier(just a short wooden bridge) where the boats can land. A cottage of some sort (round!!!).
