that's fine, some overhang is exceptable as well.

Not sure if free build points are going to the original guild or not.  Hope one of the guild leaders can answer that .

I say yes so long as you also include at least one figure from your guild.  Remember though, this is a fifth guild entry showing daily life there, so make sure the MOC displays that first and foremost.

Because Kabel entered his already, it is exempt from the one figure rule and can be a free build.

So we have to include a figure from our guild, but it doesn't have to be our Sig-fig (eg. it could be just a stereotyped merchant?)

My build has a figure from an earlier moc, but not my sigfig. As this was approved, I guess it works just fine!

Instead of using my sig-fig or some Kaliphlin in my entry, can I use a Valaryian that I am planning on using as one of Ageven's followers in future builds (and my guild still get the free build points)? Also, am I alowed to make a border around a 32x32 base (like Z often does)?

the use of the fig and the border is no problem.  As to the free points, I am not sure the contest count toward free build points but I am sure the mods or Z will be able to answer that.

I was wondering if, even under those conditions, it would still be valid. :wink:
Nice to hear about the border, I'm not sure I'll be able to but I'm thinking about giving one a go...

Contest entries for Varlyrio can count as free builds so long as there is at least 1 guild specific element in the build.  A figure or whatever.
