Challenge V: Princes of Garvey

It is the end of an era – one which began with the discovery of a few islands and rapidly transformed many of the old regimes into colonizing powers. It has seen the birth of new rivalries and the rekindling of old, and the world of the Brick Seas has forever been changed…

 

As the waves of the new seas grow more contested every day, the smaller nations look on greedily to get a piece of the pie.  The valiant (or belligerent) Duke of Prio - depending on who you ask - has become a figurehead for a new movement, a movement of resistance.  Now the King of Garvey, Leopaldis IV has begun to stir the pot.  He has entered into the Mardier Civil War by declaring a state of war, snatching Mardierian ships, and signing a treaty with Eslandola against that unruly power.  Openly taking the side of the Duke of Prio and Eslandola in that conflict, he has now begun to strike at Mardier’s settlements in the Far Islands.  A declaration of war from the Mardierians was quick to follow.  With Carno between the two nations on the mainland, however, this war, for the most part, will be fought in the far of Prio Seas.

There is an old adage in Garvey, “He who rules the waves for his king, the same shall be made prince of the people” - and now the word has come to the far islands that Leopaldis will grant a new Prince title to the person, of whatever nation, who brings him the greatest victories in the Far Seas.  Eslandola, too, has declared that it will grant special trading benefits to whoever will own its fight against Mardier, and a particular bonus to the one privateer who surpasses all the rest.

But the Mardierians will not be deterred.  King Alphonse XIII has finally taken the throne, and has the villainous rebels (more politely known as the “United Provinces’ forces”) on the run.  It looks like without further intervention from the other countries, the Mardier Civil War may come to a quick close with Mardier on top.  After that, only Terraversa lies between the King and absolute rule.  Alphonse has declared that any privateer who defeats a Garvey or Eslandolan force in battle shall be given special trading rights with Mardier, and the greatest privateer of all at the end of the war will be named ambassador to his or her faction with special privileges.

(Mardierian High Command - MOCed by our very own, illustrious, Bregir)

(Prizes for Overall Individual Winners: 

Anyone who enters at least once for Eslandola and Garvey's side will get the prize of a 20% greater gain in the MRCA whenever visiting an ESL port for the next three months after the results of the challenge are posted or a 15% greater gain on any landbased properties placed in either Garvey or Eslandolan settlements built in the same time period (but the bonus would stay in place for those properties for all the foreseeable future), and the one overall winner for this side [determined by their average of entries from all categories] will receive the honorary title of Prince of Garvey, and will get a 40% greater gain when trading in any GAR or ESL ports during the next four months or a 30% bonus on all landbased properties in ESL or GAR settlements built during the same period (again, the bonuses would not go away afterwards - just any new builds would not be eligible for the bonus).

Everyone who enters at least once for Mardier, on the other hand, will get a 25% greater gain whenever visiting MAR ports for the next three months after the results for the challenge are published or a 20% greater gain on any landbased properties placed in Mardierian settlements which are built in the same time period (but the bonus would likewise stay in place after that), and the overall winner for this side will receive the honorary title of Mardierian Ambassador, and a 50% trading bonus in MAR ports for four months/MRCAs or a 40% bonus on all landbased properties MAR settlements built during the same period (same bonus provisions as before).  But we digress...)

 

But what is at stake for the nations, you ask?  The future of Mardier, Garvey, and Eslandola all hang in the balance!  Will Mardier crush its opponents and regain its old position as the greatest empire of the world, or will Eslandola and Garvey be dictating its terms?  Find out and tell us!

(OOC:  Another digression, I'm afraid!

Overall Faction Winners:

  • MAR, if the winning side, would win:
    • The war...
    • Isla de Many Names,
    • an extra settlement on said island
    • a royal fort license to be placed in any of its territories
    • a monthly stipend of 300DBs to be paid by Eslandola as rent for the land on which Fuerte Unido is situated (the settlement, however, would continue to belong to ESL)
  • ESL, if the winning side, would win:
    • The war...
    • Isla de Many Names,
    • microbuild licenses (5 small, 3 medium, 2 large - free choice of category) to be placed in an extra settlement (if possible use one of the existing MAR locations) on the island,
    • a royal fort license (to be placed anywhere on the island, three microbuilds required, showing different parts of the fort, or one large microbuild, license doesn't count against the fort limit of the corresponding settlement)
  • In the case of no decisive win, one way or the other, the island would be peacefully (well, not really... but the war would be ended) split in half between MAR and ESL.

 

  • first ranking faction among COR/OL/SR:
    • microbuild licenses (5 small, 3 medium, 2 large - free choice of category) to be placed anywhere, which are the results of the efforts of those trying to escape the Mardierian war to settle in other nations' territory,
    • a royal fort license (to be placed anywhere, three microbuilds required, showing different parts of the fort, or one large microbuild, license doesn't count against the fort limit of the corresponding settlement),
    • 3000 FIPs
  • second place:
    • microbuild licenses (3 small, 2 medium, 1 large - free choice of category) to be placed anywhere, with the same reasoning as above,
    • two large fort licenses (not upgradable, to be placed anywhere, one microbuild required per license, license don't count against the fort limit of the corresponding settlements),
    • 2000 FIPs
  • third place:
    • microbuild licenses (2 small, 1 medium - free choice of category) to be placed anywhere,
    • one large fort license (not upgradable, to be placed anywhere, microbuild required, license doesn't count against the fort limit of the corresponding settlement)
    • 1000 FIPs

End of prize info).

 

 


This is the last challenge in Era I, The Discovery, and any member may build for either side – and it doesn’t necessarily have to be the side you think is best or right!  There is not even any need to build for the same side in each category, and each member may build a maximum of one entry per side for each category – that is, you can have a total of 10 entries, max.  Besides the usual category winners (one from each side [MAR or ESL + GAR], best build on the winning side being the winner and the best on the other the runner up of the category), there will be one overall winner for each team (the number of categories entered coming into play here), who will win the top individual prizes mentioned above.

As per the usual, other factions will still compete against one another for the faction prizes as well (whichever side you build for, it will still help your own faction here - and note that, as there is already very much at stake for ESL, they won't be contending for this particular prize, see the faction prize info above), and the overall winning side (ESL and GAR or MAR and its allies) will end up being the winning side of the war.

[Credit to the GoH leaders for many of the ideas above!]

 

Category A: The Assassin's Creep

Setting: The streets of Kings Port.

Love and death are in the air.  Panic has come over the island due to rumors that Alphonse has silenced the opposition back on the mainland.  With their own leader in pseudo-rebellion, the Terraversans worry that Alphonse’s Death Guard will make their way to the island to reclaim it once and for all.  Now is the time to make alliances and break previous partnerships.  The best way to form an alliance is through marriage; the best way to break one is through bloodshed.  Depict a romantic outing or a tragic end of life scene (or maybe both?) which affects the relationship between Terraversa and Mardier or some other nation.  The MOC may be no larger than 16 x 16, and minifigure posing will be taken into account when judging.

Due Date: February 28th, anywhere in the world

Category Prize – 

1st place - A battalion of Terraversan mercenaries, free of charge and upkeep
- and  41149 Moana's Island Adventure

Runner-up - A company of Terraversan troops, free of charge and upkeep

 

- Results -

 

Category B: ‘Till my dying breath…

 

Setting: Skaford Heights.  

Mardier’s secret colony has been discovered by Eslandolan forces, and now there is a plan for a joint all-out assault!  Builders need to pick a side and depict the Garvey and Eslandolan assault on the island.  Your character does not have to be physically involved in the attack, but your sig fig has funded this expedition to defend or attack Skaford Heights (your sig-fig does not necessarily have to be involved with or funding the same side as the one you are building for).  The MOC must depict a beach landing, a defense mounted by the Mardierians, and the death of a hero, and may be up to 48x48 studs.  At least one picture must be a close up of the Hero’s death scene (artistic license for posing allowed, of course – see Death of General Wolfe for an example of artistic license.)

Due Date: March 31st, anywhere in the world

Category Prize – 

1st place - 500 PIPs and a free medium fort (activated by a micro-build) to be placed anywhere
- and  31063 Beachside Vacation

Runner-up - 300 PIPs and a free small fortress (activated, likewise, by a micro-build)

 

- Results -

 

Category C: On Stranger Tentacles

 

Setting: The Sea of Prio.  

Did you hear that Garvey has harnessed the power of the Kracken?  Or perhaps you have heard about how King Alphonse rides on a giant Narwhal, destroying ships at his leisure?  Terrible things lay in the depths of the Far Seas, and you will be depicting one of them.  There are no size limits, but there must be a terrible sea creature, and it must be destroying a vessel or terrorizing a camp on shore from the side you are not supporting in the war.  The monster must be natively aquatic (no jungle beasts, please).

Due Date: March 31st, anywhere in the world

Category Prize – 

1st place - Cooperate with with the gamemasters in moving the Kraken in the upcoming quest!
- and 70623 Destiny's Shadow

Runner-up - Learn ahead of time the location of the Kraken (either to chase it or to run away!) for the first two MRCAs

 

- Results -

 

Category D: Yum Yum, Bumbel Tuna

 

Setting: The far seas.

The Mardierian fleet in the far seas has made their latest fortune in the fishing industry.  Tuna has become the latest craze among the elite of the mainland.  Mardier’s sailors have developed trade secrets and hidden away the best fishing spots to create a near monopoly on this most sought after fish, as the Eastern Bumbel Tuna Trading Company reaps massive profits!  The Garvian privateers seek to hit Mardier where it hurts, their wallet.  Builders depict either Garvian privateers intercepting a Mardier fishing vessel or show Mardier troops outwitting the Garvian privateers.  This MOC may be up to 48x48 studs.  The MOC must include TWO vessels, fish (brick built are fine!), and waves.

Due Date: April 15th, anywhere in the world

Category Prize – 

1st place - A life-time supply of Bumbel Tuna!!! :grin: :laugh: Reap a 300% profit next time you go on a Bounty Run (you'll have to let the automaters know after the KPA is published to triple the amount, or make sure they have already done so)
- and 41150 Moana's Ocean Voyage

Runner-up - Reap a 200% profit on your next bounty run

 

- Results -

 

Category E: The Treasure Trove

 

Setting: The New World

It is said that Mardier has been building up a massive fleet and army, which have been amassing at their ports to crush the rebels and Eslandola once and for all.  There is only one wee little problem – Mardier is, essentially, broke. 

But rumor has it that somewhere in the newly discovered islands there is a fabled kingdom of gold, where the natives of the place have far more of the shiny metal than they know what to do with – and rumor has it, too, that the East Bumbel Tuna Company has found a map leading to this kingdom, and that they mean to use all means, fair and foul, to get this gold to support the Mardierian war endeavor and finish off the rebels once and for all!  Such a sum of money could be the making or breaking of the struggling empire, but the news seems to have escaped and it is more than only the Mardierian who search for that lost treasure now!  Show either one of your characters hearing about, discovering and/or carrying off this treasure, and dealing with the natives (and it doesn’t necessarily have to be for Eslandola! – as long as Mardier doesn’t get it, that is good enough for them!), or tell us how Mardier and the East Bumbel Tuna Company managed to thwart the treasure hunters and securely carry off this store of doubloons!  But it is said that Mardier is not a nation with a track record of getting along very well with the native peoples…

This is a story category, and you are allowed a maximum of three builds to portray this, the sizes being no greater than one 16x16, one 32x32, and one unlimited build respectively.  There are no restrictions as to how you find the treasure or where this kingdom is located except that it is on one of the newly discovered islands of the Prio seas or the new Haven Seas region.  Are the natives there friendly, or are they fiercely protective of their gold?  Do pirates make off with the doubloons, do they fall into the hands of the rebels or Eslandolans, or is Mardier able to carry out their villainous masterplan?  You decide!

Due Date: May 15th, anywhere in the world

Category Prize – 

1st place - A new island (of the Prio seas, though your build could be in the new Haven seas) of your choice for your faction and 600 DBs
- and 31065 Park Street Townhouse

Runner-up - 500 DBs

 

And now get to building those MOCs!  The fate of the Brick Seas rests in your hands!

Damn. For some reason I would love to have an incentive to MOC in Mardierian settlements. I really like the idea of those. But no, Fontonajo is Eslandolan through an through, so ooc I am lookin forward to the time after the challenge when some others - of the losing side of Mardier of course - will MOC in Mardierian settlements. While I will enjoy my Eslandolan bonusses!

 

Regarding bonusses for land based properties, are they added to or multiplied with current bonusses?
e.g.: Commerce yields 20 % more for Eslandola, and challenge brings 15 % => Will that be a) 35% (20%+15%) or b) 38% (1,2 * 1,15)?
e.g.: Minopoly on Cotton yields 50% more for MCTC and 30% from winning the challenge => Will that be a) 80% (50%+30%) or b) 95% (1,5 * 1,3)?

 

Regarding the overall individual winner: How is the average calculated?
- Do all five categories "weigh" the same or is there a different factor (e.g. 10% from category A, 30% from category B, etc.)
- How is not entering in one of them calculated in? As 0 points / worst grade / ...? Or will the average of the other categories be calculated? Or in other words: Who wins? a) The person who enters a "very good" entry in all five categories or b) the person who enters a "very, very, very good" entry in only one category and misses the others?

 

Regarding faction winners:
* In case Eslandola wins: What happens to the Mardierian settlements on Isla de Victoria (de Many Names)?
* The description says "in case of no decisive win" -> could you please disclose as to how that would be decided? Or at least have this clear beforehand within leadership (though I would love to have it as public knowledge as well). Like where is the threshhold? 5% more points for one of the sides? 50% more points? 10 more entries? 15 more quality entries? Really no clue at all!
* In general to have some more knowledge about how the faction-winners are decided (regarding factions there has never been so much at stake like for Eslandola in this one, really) would be great to know. In theory what would happen if I submitted five horrible, absolutely horrible, entries for Mardier side? Would it harm them? I hope not, and am quite certain no Eslandolan would do that... but still knowing how things will be decided in general would be cool.
* Who will own the microbuild licenses? The nation? Individual players? Or up to any nation to decide?
* Do the free fort licenses include "free upkeep" as well, once there will be upkeep-rules?
* I think it might be a bit non-motivating for the non-Eslandolans to fight for FIPs for their faction, when we all don't have a clue what they might be good for. I suggest to either disclose more on how those will be used in the future or change that price. At least it wouldn't motivate me at all.

 


Licenses:
* May challenge entries be used to license ships and/or properties? Cat. D strikes me in particular, that might result in some very nice smaller WR-ships for example, which people might want to license afterwards. Cat.A might display a small residence for example, Cat. C a ship, Cat. B a fort, etc. Not that this should be the main goal, but especially for large ships I think it would be cool to know if that is allowed.
 

 

Overall I think this is a fantastic challenge, a nice disclosure on prices before it starts (great!), and a very creative way to resolve the war.

Amazing work, leadership team! Thank you!

Category D: Yum Yum,Bumbel Tuna

This MOC may be up to 48x48 studs.  The MOC must include TWO vessels, fish (brick built are fine!), and waves.

 

I'm guessing this means total maximum area up to 48x48? Would 64x32 work as well? Also, would more than 2 vessels be possible?

I will take this up in leadership. My own position is that any one property should only be subject to one type of bonus. In this case, you should build something not cotton, and something not commerce.

1 hour ago, Elostirion said:

Regarding the overall individual winner: How is the average calculated?

I think any acceptable entry, (i.e. "sufficient effort") will be better than no entry at all. No other construction will make sense.

1 hour ago, Elostirion said:

Scorched earth. The Mardierians burn their settlements, apart from what is represented by the prize of micro-licenses.

1 hour ago, Elostirion said:

The description says "in case of no decisive win" -> could you please disclose as to how that would be decided?

The Brethren Courts is gamemastering this, and it will be a subjective evaluation. We will of course look at the scores, but it will be a gamemaster-decision what the outcome is, based on the builds and stories told. This is not something we can (or want to) put on a formula, no matter how much you German's like those! :pir-tongue:

1 hour ago, Elostirion said:

Most likely, you would give Mardier 1 point per entry, rather than zero.

1 hour ago, Elostirion said:

* Who will own the microbuild licenses? The nation? Individual players? Or up to any nation to decide?

Initially, the factions, as it is faction prizes, but what the factions do with them, and how they reward the builders, is up to them.

1 hour ago, Elostirion said:

* Do the free fort licenses include "free upkeep" as well, once there will be upkeep-rules?

I will clarify this. I do not think we discussed it yet. Most likely, it will have upkeep as any other fort.

Hopefully, people are motivated by participation, moc'ing, and story-telling. :pir-wink:

However, you will soon need xIBSfor discovery, quests and adventures, ship limits, etc. So no worries, there will plenty of uses for them!

1 hour ago, Elostirion said:

* May challenge entries be used to license ships and/or properties?

I should think so, but to me, you would have to explain how it came to be in your hands, if the property or ship is not initially yours, or even Eslandian. I think we may require a small vignette to explain this, but again, will bring this up in leadership.

It's going to be Yuuuuuuuuge! :pir-grin:

Indeed. For challenges, the footprint is always a maximum. And that means that anything less than 48x48 = 2304 studs, like for instance 64x32 =  2048 studs, would be acceptable. (Someone correct me if I am wrong).

And yes, it MUST include two vessels, which an entry with 53 vessels also does. I will clarify with the courts whether microships are acceptable.

 

Also, let us know if any other questions arise! On top of this, we are already now starting to plan the next era, a new MRCA, skill-system, new ships, etc. so the next year will bring as much excitement to BoBS, if not even more, as the last year has!

One more additional question: Do those count towards any limitations per month (2 or 3 in one settlement, as recently discussed; btw. any results on that yet?) or are they independent of the normal licensing? The 2/3 per month should also apply to nations, shouldn't it?

Doing area plotting in my head, 48x48=72x32. The builds don't have to be that big, though. Fishing vessels don't really need to be very large, do they? So ships that take them shouldn't need to be either.

I'm a simple man roaming the seas for adventures. I leave all the politics and trade bonusess to you fellows.

But I'm highly interested in that tale of the kraken. Sounds like the right task for me.

Or in other words: Who wins? a) The person who enters a "very good" entry in all five categories or b) the person who enters a "very, very, very good" entry in only one category and misses the others?

  1. Likely the 'weight' of each category will be tied to the size and effort that an entry to each would require (i.e., an entry to the huge Category E would have a larger say in the individual results than one in the relatively small Category A).  EDIT: This particular is being discussed in the leadership at the moment to see whether they'll all have equal weight or based on their size as above.  We'll try to get back to you all as soon as possible with the result!
  2. They'd be averaged and subject to the multiplier based on the size/effort above.  So, it might technically be possible to win if you only entered one category, but it would certainly be singularly improbable :pir_laugh2:  Five "very good" entries would certain beat one "very, very, very good" entry - but three or four "very, very, very good" entries would likely beat five "good" or maybe even "very good" ones :thumbup:  I.e., missing one or two categories and doing an epic job in the others is not going to kill your chances of an overall win - missing four categories and building an epic entry into one probably will for the overall prize (but then, you'd probably win that category, you know! :pir-laugh:)

  1. It would likely be something anywhere from 45-55% or 40-60% = no decisive win and a split of the island - but as Bregir said, we're not going to fix a set-in-stone rule here - this is something you guys' builds and stories will decide! :pir-wink:
  2. In this case, as per the rules, Eslandola is not competing against the other three factions but only against Mardier, so the judging protocol will be slightly different than usual - but in general, the winning faction/side in each category will be decided by something like the the average of the five highest scoring builds from each side, plus one or two points for each entry.  The winning side/faction overall would be decided by a similar feature on the overall level (probably with the same percentage allotted to each category as for the individual prizes above).

In short, the judging for this particular challenge will have to be somewhat different to that of previous ones due to its rather different nature, but the general gist of it should be what I've stated above :thumbup:

I would think no, micro-licence prizes are not subject to that rule (just like the ones previously handed out).  I'll bring it up in the leadership if it hasn't already been though :classic:

Two questions about what is allowed in an entry thread:

1) Are we allowed to use extra images that are not part of the entry builds for story purposes? Example: an image of fig (or figs) acting as narrator that are not actually part of the entry build.

2) Are we allowed to edit our entry up until the end date of the contest?

1) I see no issue with this. Just make sure to specify which pictures are part of the entry.

2) Yes.

For Category D: Is it alright if the bowsprits of one or both of those vessels overhangs the base? My plan for that category depends on the answer to this. If I remember correctly it wasn't an issue for Challenge IV.

Normally, we accept "reasonable overhang".

So don't have beakhead and cabin overhang in each end. But a bowsprit or two is probably within reason.

Great! Never planned to have beakhead or cabin overhanging, but having the extra space for a bowsprit should allow me to get at least a pair of reasonably sized vessels in :D

This is probably a silly question, but do we need to declare for Eslandola or Mardier in every category?

If so may I recommend that as a requirement every entry must clearly state whether it is pro-Eslandolan or pro-Mardierian?

Also, I'm assuming that I can build one entry for a category that is pro-Eslandolan, and other entry for a different category that is pro-Mardierian?

You can build one entry for each side in each category, meaning you build 10 entries total. And yes, everyone must declare what side a specific build is for, even if you think it is obvious. :pir-tongue: (The story should of course aim at representing this too)

You may mix and match however you like, as long as you build no more than one entry per side per category. :pir-blush: Hope this clarifies it.
