I like the idea of buildings that help to build your character's individual "story", but I also don't want to be handcuffed by it, as others have mentioned. I don't think there's any reason that if your main character lives in a valley, you should feel like you can't build a mountain fortress. And if you want to build a swampy, evil MOC, go for it! Just make up a story to go along with it. Maybe your main Character came across it in his travels or his supplies were hijacked by some raiders. I don't see any reason why someone who inhabits the desert shouldn't be allowed to build a frosty Nordic MOC.

My idea is to cut all ties to GoH and start something completely new and separate here. Here's a couple of my ideas:
> We use five factions, centrerd around the "classic" factions
- These would be Black Falcon (blue/yellow), Crusader (red/yellow), Dragon Masters (red/blue), Forestmen/Wolfpack (Green/red) and the last
Would be a rebel/viking/brigand/whatever themed group for miscelaneous factions. (yellow/green).
- Colors mentioned can vary, I just chose some common colours that would be easily distinctable. Blue could include dark blue, Red could
include dark red, yellow could include gold etc. etc.
> We start a Lore and Map Contest in the stories forum to decide the background we will use for our land, and which geographical shape it will take.
- I have already written lore, so we need other people to judge.
- Rules will be determined when the contest is organised.
> For each clan, we start a building challenge to determine who will lead. The leader of the clan will then elect his other ranks.
- Ranks (from high to low): Clan Leader/Guildmaster/King - Steward - Ambassador - Finance and Commerce minister - General/Field Marshall
- Lower lords (5 to 6 of those).
- NOTE: these are just suggestions. Names for the ranks or their order could be decided per Clan.
> From there on, the Clans organise building challenges about once or twice a month to gain points (similar to what they do at GoH).
Let me know what you think of these.
Teherean wrote:Also: I myself am not a big fan of orcs/skeletons/fantasy stuff, but I understand that other people are and it would be unfair to leave them out. Giving them a separate island seems to be a good solution, or a separate faction. I don't really like fantasy creatures crawling around in my MOCs, but for the people that do like them, there should be space to do what they want and still be a part of the story.
Teherean wrote:On a side note: I see no problem in combining classic elements with new elements and colours, As long as the faction stays distinct. I couldn't care less if a black falcon weilds a new-grey helmet or a blue-and-white viking shield, as long as he can be distincted as a "blue" figure and the banner colours are there, no problem. A problem would be a red army joining a blue faction. We kinda need to regulate that.
KyleKreations wrote:Wow! We have had some great stuff being discussed. Sorry if I dissapoint but I somewhat like the unique things that Fantasy can bring to Lego. I was thinking that perhaps the story for all of this could include things that explain things better. Such as:<br sab="626">Magic is all but gone now. And any who use it are a forgotten people. The many creatures that used to roam this land have now dispersed. Whether hunted down or just vanished it matters not. Any of them that are left are in dark cave,on high mountain tops, or deep underground. Although their trace will never fully leave. Ancient towers on forgotten coasts and secret pools of magic are still there, but no one has yet discovered them...<br sab="627">I don't know. Using the backstory to explain trends in architecture and culture could really help. Let me know how you like this idea!

I am in the Mitgardia Guild, though I haven't been real active in the building challenges(only having made a watchtower so far). You guys seem to be doing great at getting all the details nailed down, keep up the good work
