See question 11

Takkata wrote:... monster fighters ... StarWars...
- Please limit yourself to the internal Castle line rather than licensed or non-castle themes. For clarification, we have always held that Ninja and Vikings were part of the Castle line (though Ninja would be out for this particular category because those sets had alternate models).
Takkata wrote:Doesn't mean it has to be a castle ... build a forest scene
- You are correct in that a 'unique castle creation' for the 'Alternative Model' does not mean that your entry has to be a castle, but instead something that fits into the castle world. Forest scene, village building, siege engine, farm, etc would all be valid sorts of MOCs. But see question 26
above on what source material you can use.

i.e. Hogwarts Shields; Fire engine logos, or space faction symbols?
See question 12
above. Purist creations are always welcome.
Is there a restriction regarding to the usage of strings
? (only official LEGO strings of course, of course!)
- Non-LEGO strings are actually okay (see question 11
), but I'm guessing you're asking here about cutting strings? Cutting strings and flex tubing has traditionally been seen as reasonably purist in AFOL competitions, as there are actually a couple of official sets (older, non-castle) where the instructions call for cutting them. So no restrictions on strings.
Lolino wrote:OK, this will not fit to this category but does it fits to Medieval Town category? The execution will take place on market so ...
- Yes, the category is not just limited to the buildings themselves. There could be lots of things happening in the village, including an execution, a market day, a fair, a religious observance, a battle, people going about their daiily chores, etc. The focus here is on the location and events in a medieval town.
Legonardo wrote:would a joust scene work for the court entertainer category?
- Yes, court entertainment is not restricted to just those entertainments happening inside the throne room, but those entertainments for the nobility. So a tournament would be perfectly appropriate.

- Seeking to earn a new title? But I was so proud of coming up with CC spriggan for you. But as to the question, yes. The CCC is less than a week old. We wanted to wait a bit to allow the first wave of questions to die down before announcing any add on.
