To the ends that the Councils may be enlightened, this day have I, Ishmael, arranged an exhibition of the power of the Dark Sciences.
 I present to them, an Aether-recording, taken this day in the Western Sea.
In this, you see a deserted island, uncharted, and one fourth of one league in dimensions. I have caused to be launched from Leviathan, a missile, similar to what you may know as a "Congreve Rocket", but of far greater sophistication. On that dire missile, is a Phlogistonic Bomb, weighing half a stone, one of the smaller of such devices.

Know then, that this is a mere hint of the tools we posess.  I do not deign to use such force lightly, and do not wish to provoke any, but I will respond to the sword, with the sword, and my retribution iwill be righteous.


By my hand, this day, aboard Leviathan

Indeed, that is a most devastating weapons were it to be used, which I have no doubt you will use in time of need.
But you seem to be aware of the capability's of this weapon of all people and I believe you will be responsible with it.

After all who would dare to disagree with you but the mad?But If you think you are safe now that you have this or that you are sorely mistaken. On this day every man who has witnessed this demonstration now plots against you, especially those who seem to seek alliance. where is your enemy do you even know? how could you when everyone now fears you? and because of this you must seek greater safety and greater security...but tell the truth, will it ever be big enough and destructive enough to end the nightmares of a knife at your back?

no no ...you will not sleep soundly tonight, nor tomorrow, nor ever again.

Even I am wary...but I am honest.

... properly timed a second or two after the blast to realistically make it seem gargantuan.

Ok... let me redo this with sound. I think I should also have the shock wave move the Leviathan..
 I think I should be able to put in some sound post-processing..
  FYI, be happy to render up stuff for y'all..

You might want to tweak how fast it takes the emitter to get to where its going since right now it feels like the thing's just not moving fast enough(or that there's a REALLY long way between the two ships).

Yeah, and perhaps a bit of a size tweak along its path for perspective.. I plan to redo at higher res, so I can make some tweaks...

Ok..
   The basic modelling pacjage I use is 3d Studio Max.  I create my models in it, then export (as .3ds) into my texturing and rendering package, Bryce. The particle effects (explosions, etc) are added in Particle Illusion after the render is done..
  You could get a start in modelling with several packages, Google Sketchup is free, and while its not the most powerful its a good palce to start learning. DAZ studio from DAZ 3D (www.daz3d.com) is also free, and will get you started in character modelling.
  Let me know if you have any mroe questions..
Cheers
Harold
