Oh, definitely! Kind of like the Merlin TV show (which I love). But I'm not turning all evil, like Morgana. At least, I don't think so.... But the outlaws are all ragtag, and I'm only good at building pretty palace things. Well, I'm sure I could make an effort for something else, but ragtag groups of people don't tend to decorate with intricate patterns.
A few more questions: Once you made something, would you have to keep it put together for future story development? That could be problematic for people who don't have enough bricks to leave stuff together (like me). And for the people who are developing armies for fighting... would those people have to provide the enemy soldiers too, if you want to show them in the fight? So when people are planning what faction to join, and looking at their minifigs' clothes, they might also need to consider what factions they might want to attack?
(I find it highly probably that you've discussed this elsewhere, but there are pages and pages to go through in some of those threads...)
