Yeah, Rob had pointed that out to me today that they were the same as Nocturni colors... I thought they were red and black. I wish Lego made more colors available. I really would like a deep purple.

I think I'm going to go with yellow and gold.  I would like some more colors, but actually there are lots of combinations.  I have at least 5 colors, plus, I'm guessing that you don't have to use flags in both colors.  Couldn't you just take a flag color you don't have and incorporate pieces of that color into your build?  That's what I had to do for my sig-fig. . . :tongue:

I actually have a bunch of black and white stocked up because that was what I was going to use as my colors for the CC equivalent of GoH. Except then I went into my forced Lego hibernation as soon as that event kicked off... Come to think about it, I never did tell anyone over there what had happened. Woops

Back on topic, Black and white is cool, and I think the Yin Yang idea fits a fifth guild, perhaps they strive to restore a balance in Historica after the elemental uprising?

yes, for a clutch friend from Avalonia :)

I am not entirely sure what you are asking, or what a "clutch friend" is..  :look: Do you mean you aren't sure which entries you've seen and which you haven't? I usually try to comment on the builds, that way i can mark which one's i've definitely seen.

Ska, don't worry - if we win, we don't lose an existing member, we just get written in to the larger story.  New house sounds awesome, I hope it will make up for all the troubles earlier.  I have 7 or 8 scenarios sketched out, I would love  :grin_wub: to work with you on this one, I am sure it would totally rock.

Thanks robuko! Haha.... oh dear. I blame my sleep deprived state. I have an unexpected day at home today though (sick, blargle blargle), so it's a good chance to catch up on the forum!  :thumbup:

Yes, that would be a formidable combination, and I would enjoy working with you too.

On another note, since Gold, grey,  white, and pink seem to be the only different colors (I guess you could count sand green) not taken by the other guilds already, I was wondering what people thought would be the most efficient use of existing flags for a new guild. Right now I am leaning towards Red and Gold - as they are the most abundant. Then again, that puts red  in three different flags. I would go with blue and gold, but to me that naturally looks like the crown knights too much.  white and grey are really expensive, and the pink available is more of a hot pink than a deep pink. Too bad the friends series doesn't have purple flags! So I feel like gold with one of the other colors we are already using would be the best option. What do you all think?

Yeah, it's a shame that white flags are so hard to come by, white and gold would look pretty nice i reckon. But most colours look good next to gold, or you could even have just gold by itself.

Also, i was thinking dark blue and sand green could be interesting, or maybe green and red? Idk, just thinking thoughts...

Of course, the other option is to build your flags out of other pieces - it might give you a wider palette. I might have a play around later to see if i can come up with some decent flag designs.  :classic:

I think I might be taking a break from the Kaliphlin Times for a while. I have a few more ideas but I would like to finish a few MOCs that have been sitting around. I really need to sit down and organize my collection but not sure if I want to waste my time at it. My son will be turning 2 in a few months and loves to "play" with LEGO. However his idea of playing is mixing all the pieces. He is a fun little guy but just not too helpful to my building...
I hope to complete the ship soon but I've been working on my castle of late. Surprising how much time it consumes... When I get a bit further, I'l post some WIP pics.

Got a few ideas. Maybe, unofficial guild challenges. That might be fun. Also, I could write a column in the Kaliphlin times.

Yeah, good luck with the sorting!  I have a 10, 7, 5 and 2 year old who all think my legos are their legos...even though I have given them a very large lego collection of their own.  It actually gets easier, now that my 2 year old is nearing the 3 year mark she understands the color spectrum much better and will actually sort with me some times!

A university?  Something like what one would suppose the ancient Alexanrian Museusm (so named because of the Muses) in Egypt would have looked like?

Ohhh, I remember those ideas! The university is still my favorite too, there are so many possibles to do with that one and it is totally different from what the other guilds are doing.

It would help with our free build count too.

And I can use it as try-out for the Virgin Temple (and University) of Mpya Stedor as well :laugh:

But how will we do it?

We can say for example that the University of Petraea has a wide campus with different buildings for each subject?

For example, these are different (Medieval) subjects I can come up with atm:
edit, I added already some and put them alphabetically:
- Astronomy
- (Human) Biology
- Economic
- Geology
- Geography
- History
- Languages
- Law
- Magic
- Maths
- Medical
- Music
- Philosophy
- Sciences (Alchemy)
- Sociology
- Warfare
- ...

Other important places:
- Bathrooms
- Courtyard
- Dormatories
- Headmaster's room
- Libraries
- Professor's chat room where the professor they can chill and drink a nice Kaliphlin wine
- ...


Those who can add some subjects, feel free to do so :)
Or do you got other ideas for the university?

Then our Stormcloaks can beat the hell out of the Empire...

We maybe.. Look. I feel that perhaps a more... Versatile project should be done. Less assignment of campus buildings, more do whatever the Hell we want.
And more skyrim, And higher pay! Wait wut?

That sounds like a good list, but don't we need astronomy (maybe that goes under sciences)?  Also, magic seems pretty simmilar to alchemey - maybe just one or the other.  :sceptic:
