GLOBAL CHALLENGE III - PURGING THE MAGIC ISLANDS

GLOBAL CHALLENGE III - PURGING THE MAGIC ISLANDS


For years, the lawful rulers of Roawia tolerated the use of magic on islands isolated off of the eastern shores because the Lands were divided and we were on the brink of internal war. Now, with mutual treaties bringing the factions closer together, the King of Roawia has decided that it is time to finally cleanse the world of the vile and dangerous practics of sorcery! Together, we can rid our lands of their filth!

Join together, Lenfel, Garhim and Loreesi, and we will vanquish this evil once and for all!


Image

CHALLENGE:

This global challenge is split up in two phases.

Phase I: Every army, small or large, needs time and careful preparation before it can depart on any military endeavor. Show your character (and his/her army, if applicable) preparing for war. Think of purchasing/making armor and weapons, training, and building ships/siege equipment to go to and attack the Magic Islands.
Outlaws, you have eyes and ears everywhere, and have been alerted of the upcoming invasion. Show your character preparing for the attack in whatever way you feel best, be it preparing to fight, or getting ready to run and hide!

Phase II: All preparations made and weapons readied? Take your character and his/her troops to the Magic Islands, and take the fight to the wizards and witches! Show your character fighting with magical people or beings on the island in a battle sure to be remembered for all time!

RULES:

Phase I entries will be accepted from today through February 3rd. (PHASE I IS NOW CLOSED)
Phase II entries will be accepted from Feb 3rd through Feb 17th.
The creation must include your LCC character and your faction standard and/or colors. There are no size or base limitations.
Submit your entries in this thread, using thumbnails and a link to either the MOC forum or Flickr/MOCpages/etc.

Determination of Winners:
A “finalist” from each faction will be selected for each phase. The two finalists will both be entered into the global vote. Each voter will select one favorite from each phase among the eight finalists. Whichever faction receives the most combined votes will be awarded the Global Points for winning the challenge. The individual builder who receives the most votes will win the grand prize, and the individual builder who receives the second most votes will receive the runner up prize.

PRIZES/REWARDS:

Faction Rewards:
Each entry will earn 2.5 global points for your faction (so if you enter both phases, that is 5 points total). The faction who wins the final vote earns an additional 10 global points.

ALSO - If the winning faction is Garheim, Lenfald, or Loreos, that faction will be awarded a stronghold in outlaw territory!
If the Outlaws win, they will get a stronghold in the territory of whoever finishes in last place!
:twisted:

Current faction standings are (GC1+GC2+GC3 = total):
Garheim - 55+45+60 = 160
Lenfald - 45+30+75 = 150
Loreos - 40+40+42.5 = 122.5
Outlaws - 25+40+32.5 = 97.5

Personal Rewards:
Entry into the contest earns you 3 personal points per phase.
Faction Finalists will receive an additional 5 personal points per phase.

Grand Prize Winner receives a copy of set 9471 Uruk Hai Attack as well as an additional 5 personal points.

Image

Runner Up wins a selection of custom capes supplied by Dave Ingram of “Cape Madness” as well as an additional 2 points.

What are you waiting for? Start building to support your faction and earn some great rewards!

If you have any questions, feel free to ask them here or PM your Faction Overseer (FO)


Thanks for your patience while we put this together for you.

RESPONSES TO QUESTIONS:


Q: Can my men fight "Shadow Force" troops who have magical weapons?

A: Yes. For phase II, the sky is the limit on what your troops may encounter when invading the mysterious magical islands. Who knows what kind of fell beasts have taken up residence or been conjured by an evil sorcerer in those shadowed lands....
A twist on this could be that there are actually "good" magical beings on the island, but they have had to flee there to escape persecution. Maybe there is a fairy castle being defended by sprites mounted on unicorns who fight with flowers ! Anything you can think of is pretty much allowed.
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: How many builds can be used for each phase?

A: Only ONE build per phase. If you need more than that to tell your story, you'll have to enter them in your faction as free builds, and they will not be considered as part of your entry, nor should they be included when posting your entry to this thread, so as to avoid any confusion.
Also, only one entry per phase per person (One entry for phase I, one entry for phase II).
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: For the continuation of my character's story I would prefer to stay in the Northern Lenflad, Southern Garhiem coastal area. My question is, do we have to travel to the Magic Isle in order to participate, or can we stay on the mainland and fight?

A: You certainly could spend phase I sabotaging Lenfel preparations, and I suppose you could portray your character fighting somewhere other than the magic island for phase II, though your wizard probably won't be as effective since magic isn't as powerful on the mainland as it is on the magic islands (the reasons for this have been shrouded in mystery and speculation for generations).
The main thing is to keep the general idea of the challenge in mind when building. Voters will likely be more preferential to MOCs that fit the theme, but generally just about anything will be allowed to be entered as long as it fits the general theme.
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q1: Can we extend the deadline of phase I and just allow both phases to be posted anytime before the final deadline?
Q2: Why don't you accept entries for phase 2 right now? I might not be at home in the time when I would have to post it, so I couldn't participate.

A: The idea behind having two deadlines was so that the contest would "feel" more like an invasion. It's just a lot cooler for everyone to all be preparing at once, and then everyone all attacking at once. Also, just an idea, but if people saw something that they really liked from another builder in phase I, maybe they could integrate it into their story for phase II, for example.
If there are special circumstances that limit your ability to enter at the deadline, talk to your FO and see if they'd be willing to post your entries for you on your behalf. Alternately, you can always take your pictures early and then post them later from another computer or smartphone or something like that. If you really can't make it work, then you also have the option of only entering one of the phases. You are NOT required to enter both phases to be eligible to win the grand prize, though obviously you both increase your chances of winning and also earn maximum points for yourself and your faction if you enter both phases.
I hope that helps.

Q: So how powerful would you say magic is on the Mainland? I mean I'm not trying to raise the "Big Bad Skeli Armies of Chaos" here, just a few smoke and mirror tricks
A: Magic on the mainland is pretty limited. A few poofs of smoke and some minor illusions are OK. Some of our mages guild members have even managed short bursts of levitation. I'm not going to tell you exactly what is/isn't allowed, so just try to stay in the spirit of the rules.

Awesome!!!

Did my Shadow Force/Magical Isle backstory inspire the theme of this Global Challenge at all?

Also instead of magical people can my men fight members of Shadow Force with magical weapons?

Thanks,

Ooh this challenge will be perfect for introducing my sky city :D , thank you FO's for this awesome challenge!
Oh and I have a question, how many builds are we allowed for phase one, because I had an idea that would really only work if I could do 2 or 3 builds for it.
thanks
CCG

Edit: I have a second question, is collaborating with another builder allowed?

Oh, I see my old crusade has grown roots :wink:
Anyway, this GC looks great and well planned. Plus, who doesn't love some free bricks. I'm definitely scrapping any and all current plans to enter this.

Ok, since I'm an Outlaw, I'm entitled to move about the three factions, and right now I'm in Lenfald. For the continuation of my character's story I would prefer to stay in the Northern Lenflad, Southern Garhiem coastal area. My question is, do we have to travel to the Magic Isle in order to participate, or can we stay on the mainland and fight?

I'm sure at least a few guards and magic hunters are to stay on the main land, and I'm glad to fight there because I'm actually traveling with a wizard right now! Lucky me :twisted:

Awesome idea for a global challenge, BUT the timeframe seems a bit short... wouldn't it be better to allow parallel building for both phases as to have more time overall? I fear I won't be able to participate in this GC because I'm really busy at work the next 2 weeks, and phase 1 will have concluded until then.

Mitah, we will discuss this idea of allowing concurrent builds. However, it also should be noted that you can enter phase II without entering phase I and still be eligible for the grand prize, so that option should be available to you at the very least.

Why don't you accept entries for phase 2 right now? I might not be at home in the time when I would have to post it, so I couldn't participate. Also, I don't see (but I'm also not an admin of this contest :wink:) a problem, why you couldn't allow entries before Feb 3rd...

Nice! This sounds awesome. :D
One thing, can I use Shadow knights and Uruk Hai commanded by a wizard to fight my troops or do all the 'baddies' have to be magic related in some way?
