Lara’s Levelbase Tribune
23rd March 2004 – 23rd March 2016
The Tribune started out as a monthly online newspaper 23rd March 2004 and was pursued as a blog since 15th October 2007. That means we look back at a dozen years of LLB Tribune history, twleve years of articles about the Tomb Raider universe.
Despite hoping persistently for some for new members to join the editorial team, to bring about a few guest entries, or to keep the blog project alive and going some other way, it became eerily quiet in the team and on the outside soon after the little revival in October 2014.
The New Tribune obviously hasn’t been able to attract readers for some time now. Maybe it would have been time for another transformation, switching to a new medium, or other kinds of entries, and we’ve simply missed the right moment a long time ago? Anyway, there is little use entertaining a medium of information if there is no proper circle of recipients. After twelve years of Tribune activity, however, a closedown without a decent farewell article would be unimaginable…
Lara Croft does her tai chi exercises out in the open. Spring is coming, the trees already blossom and the last snow has melted away. Soon the sun will show his face!
We, however, will have to wait a bit longer… hopefully not for so long, though. At any rate, I realised that, as the year has proceeded, the organisational meeting of the annual Tomb Raider Meeting has taken place already. Now there’s something to look forward to!

Enjoy the first rays of sunshine when the time has come!
A surprise party in Croft manor!
Winston was very sceptical towards that idea, when he read about it while catching up on a WhatsApp discussion on Lara’s birthday after he had dealt with some organisational matters and forenoon tea. Her friends, however, were delighted and had already proceeded to talk over particulars.
The house butler was not so much concerned about the loud music and the cleaning-up operation such a party would entail. What really bothered him was the feeling that someone would end up with a GSW, if they were to come out of the dark and yell congratulations at Lara to surprise her. Experience has shown that Lady Croft does not take surprises very well, out of occupational habit, she shoots faster than her shadow.
Luckily, everything worked out just fine in the end, and they had a rather nice party – without any collateral damage, too. Lara seems to have enjoyed herself quite a bit and has spontaneously decided to spend some more days in her mansion, before leaving for the next adventure…
All the best for the years ahead, Lara!
Lara Croft is out and about in an old town, on a mediaeval market day. It does not seem to be a social outing, however, seeing as she already has her guns at the ready…
Have a joyful February!

So, yeah, the year is 2016 already. And somehow one doesn’t even want to think about snow, even though it’s January, so I sent Lara Croft into a cave. Into her very personal “natural habitat,” that is… surely there are things worth exploring there.
That is the new calendar image for you. I wish a good start into the new year to all of you! Good health, and Joy in everything you do.

And once again here comes the final calendar picture of the year. Lara Croft enjoys the snowy landscape under the open sky and the full moon. To be perfectly honest, I do not remember where that is! I suppose I took the screenshot from “Lord of the Rings Online,” which means it has to be somewhere in Middle-Earth…
Enjoy it on your desktop. I wish all of you a merry Christmas, and all the best, good health and the best of luck for the new year.

I am looking forward to the upcoming holiday, the Advent Calendars, games, y’all, and whatever nice things else the future might bring.
We celebrated Halloween the other day, and Lara Croft also has to join in, of course! In the old game “Guild Wars”, which despite its follow-up game is still heavily frequented, especialy on holidays, we just get the most beautiful moon. That is why Lara has traveled to Kamadan in Elona, to admire it. For what it’s worth, it looks a bit like a location you would expect to find an artefact, doesn’t it?

Have a nice November, everyone, stay healthy and use those remaining sunny days to get out sometime!
Now this time Lara is not in the open, but completely in her element, in old tombs. There’s something in the right corner, possibly a skeleton… Did it just move? But fear not, she is beweaponed after all.

For a change, it features a dark background this time.
Well, I wish you a nice and sunny May!
Lara Croft lets her eyes wander over a landscape near an extensive valley. The weather is not that steady yet, but as long as one keeps moving, it is warm enough to go in shorts. Somewhere over there, something wants to be found – only what it is, besides mud, snails and frogs, Lara wouldn’t tell…

SInce the beginning of the year, many screenshots have been posted and some very promising have been announced. We have selected the finest ones to present them here. Enjoy!
Shalebridge Murder Mystery by Richard Lawther
Known for the Underworld Unfinished Business-Series and many more top levels, Richard Lawther returns after more than 5 years. In Cluedo-Manier Lara will be searching a mansion and investigating a murder case. The project is supposed to enter the testing phase in a couple of months.
Lionheart by teme9
We are presented with a new project by teme9, too. There is not much information out on Lionheart yet. However, the first pictures disperse a dark ambience in natural scenery. Interested level builders can also marvel at some behind-the-scenes material at TRF.
