When Reahon Greamfor got a letter from his friend Rufus, requesting that he build some siege engines
for the upcoming attack on the magic isles, he started working on them, as quick as he could.

GC3 Phase I Entries are now CLOSED!

An excellent showing, everyone! We are a bit behind the Lenfels for overall points, but we have some really good entries and have a good shot at winning the overall Phase I!

We need to select who among us will represent Garheim in the final voting for Phase I. Please PM me your vote, and remember that you can't vote for yourself! ;)

The entries are (in order of submission):

Brother Steven:
Mikithdar Government Arsenal
Mattius: Prepare For War - Training
Sir Tharkin: Taking up Arms
Crazycrownieguy: To war we march (well first the docks then to war)
Andhe: Preparing for War - Conscription
Tastymuffins: Cavalry Tactics
Gurusql: The New Ballista
Eklund: In the Forest....in the Secret
Azaghal: Training the Wyrmcliff Militia
Athalus: The Gathering
ODSTalex: Building Siege Engines (Welcome to Garheim!)
AK_Brickster: At the Gates of Grahnhaven

Total Entries: 12

Great job, everyone! I'm really proud of the participation we've had for this GC! Remember, even if you didn't get a chance to build something for Phase I, you can still show your character kicking some outlaw butt in Phase II, so get building!

Lastly, if you haven't checked out our top-secret discussion about GC3 in the Flickr pool, be sure to check it out here: http://www.flickr.com/groups/garheim/di ... 588146346/
(If you aren't a member yet, just apply to join, and I will likely have you approved within 24 hours)

SCORES UPDATED - Please review for accuracy and completeness

Keep those votes coming in guys. So far I've only heard from two people.


EDIT:

Hey guys, I'm going on vacation until the 14th tomorrow night, so I will be only be checking on periodically, and scores probably won't get updated until I return. It's up to you guys to keep the entries pouring in and make sure you do your very best! Since I will be away from my bricks for most of Phase II, I will not be able to dedicate much time to my entry, but I do have an excellent start to it already so hopefully I'll be able to squeeze one in last-minute again.

Keep those Phase I votes coming in! It is a very close race so far!

ON, GARHEIM!!

Here's my entry!

Slikver Ayleth leads his army of Garhims into the heart of the Island of Lost Souls. They march a long way from their camp on the northern coast of the island before they encounter any signs of life at all. The army marched to the edge of the forest surrounding the central mountain and stopped for a moment, wondering where the rumored outlaw hordes and magical monsters were. Then they heard the movement in the forest. An army of orcs charges out from the brush and the Garheim cavalry charge them head on! Most of the orcs are run down but the huge trolls present a great threat! The Garheim infantry goes to join the fray but are intercepted by heavily armed outlaws supported by powerful wizards. The 4 wizards are some of the strongest on the island and use elemental magic in battle. Their fireballs make flaming trees fall on the soldiers and their wind and water spells send the Garhims flying in this epic battle.

Hey guys, so I had this idea for a way for us Garheims to share and discuss. So like once a week or so, I would create a private room in the C-C Chat service thingy, for us to just chat and brainstorm, and share whatever Garheim only info we may have. I was thinking we could do this sometime on the weekend since it seems like a lot of us are busy during the week.
Tell me what you guys think.

As the Faction Liason, I welcome you to Garheim. It will take few days for all of your "paperwork" to catch-up, but as noted in the CIC you can consider yourself part of the cool crowd (pun intended). :lol:

Currently there is a the third Global Challenge underway, the information about it can be found here. Part 1 is closed, but you can still enter Part 2 if you have the time . . .

For the two Garhim's that have entered the challenge already - thank you the MOCs are great!. I know that my MOC is almost done, but might have to wait for the weekend to get photographed. I hope to see many more entries before the end of the contest! :D

Awesome, thanks! :D I'll be sure to build an entry but I have a question : will my entry still be eligible if the "paperwork" stuff hasn't been made legit? Judging by how fast you responded (thanks again) should I even be worried about that? I going to start building now!

Yes, you can enter even if it is not approved. Here is an excerpt from the CIC first post. If you have any other questions, please Private Message me so we do not clutter up the board. Thanks. :)

Update 2012-06-09: It can sometimes take me a while to get around to approving entries. If you want to enter a contest or challenge but aren't approved yet, you can still enter and your contest points will be added once your CIC entry has been approved.

Minimum requirements:
- Correct faction banner colors
- Correct faction sigil use
- Backstory

There are no size or quality requirements, but focus on your character and try to build a creation that shows your character in a natural and representative setting. Remember that this build will define your character more than any other.

"Assault of the Magic Isle"
Image
Mattias and his men finished their training and met up with he rest of the Garheim army. Within two weeks, they had arrived on the Magic Isle. As he and his men arrived on the Island, Mattias set up camp right at the beach. Around three o'clock in the morning, Mattias roused his men. by four thirty they were ready to move. Mattias and his troops marched around the island, heading through the slightly sandy forest. He came into contact with an enemy camp at six fifteen AM. Mattias called his second in charge Tir and they discussed a plan of attack. They decided that they would charge the unfinished half of the enemy encampment.
"Charge! Go for the opening!" Screamed Mattias.
The Garhim formed a shield wall, and ran on. A small contingent of troops made a run around the enemy flank.
"Gaaah!" Cried a troop, blue magic stabbing his chest, while maroon blood shot out like shards of glass.
"Look out! Oh- Oh God! What happened to him!" Yelled a soldier, who was knocked to the ground from the force of the magic. The Garhim did catch the enemy by surprise, though. Only one magician was awakened. He was dispatched seconds after killing the soldier. Garheim had taken their first stronghold on the Magic Island, though many more will fall.

SCORES UPDATED!

Please review for accuracy and completeness.


Well, I'm back from vacation in snowy Alaska (the perfect place for a Garhim to chill out for a while :D ). Thanks to Gurusql for keeping up with the scoring while I've been gone, and it looks like we've got quite a few phase 2 entries in already, but I know we can do even better, so keep them coming!

Lastly, welcome to our new members. We are glad to have you, and I think you'll find that you've made an excellent decision in choosing to align yourselves with Garheim! We have the best organization and leadership of all the factions (if I do say so myself ;) ), and I think you'll really enjoy being a part of it.

Courage, Honor, Loyalty! For Garheim!
