What a welcome surprise!    Thanks for all your work in the castle community, soccerkid6!

I had the good fortune of meeting a bunch of fellow guild members at Skaerbaek this year, and discussion there got the wheels spinning for a new GoH challenge.
And then the generosity and input of other GoH organizers led to the prompt and prizes you see here :excited:

It was great to meet you again there :classic:

This type of challenge is exactly in line with the discussions I participated in there :thumbup:

(Now I just need to decide if I’m going to build something small and hope to finish it in time, or give the harbor of Barqa a chance…?)

Hi! I've been lurking on this forum for quite some time now, appreciating and taking inspiration from all of the amazing builds here!

I've become more and more interested in participating in Guilds of Historia (even if I'm an incredibly slow builder, so not sure how often I'd be able to post), and this new challenge might be the perfect time to jump in! 

I noticed it needs to be clear 'which guild' the trading post is part of. Can I jump in with a creation of mine at random or do I need to sign up first, or do anything else?

Thank you!

You'll need to sign up for one of the guilds (which means creating a minifigure as your main story character and posting him in the right guild thread), and then you'll be all set to participate in this challenge!  Then you can build a trading post in your guild, following your guild's special characteristics.

I think (?) that you can build a trading post in any guild, not just the one you join, though the wording of the challenge is a bit ambiguous.  But who would want to build a trading post in any guild except their own, anyways? :laugh:

Maybe they would use the trading post as a front for spying on other guilds.:wink:

Thank you for the clarification! As I've read a little more into the various guilds, I'm leaning to joining one (I'll keep it as a surprise which one!), but have one more question; most of my collection of minifigs, and therefore banners and heraldry stems from the early days of the Fantasy Era. Therefore, my preferred colors would be dark blue and gold, using my small collection of crownie knights as my guards, but they seem to not be used in any of the guilds. Are they welcome to join any, and if so, which?

Crowns have traditionally been (if I recall!) the symbol of Cedrica, the capital of the guilds and thus not part of any guild at all.  You might be able to do something fun with that, like say your character originally lived in the capital but moved because xyz.

But there are no restrictions on using various sigils across the guilds--what we have are just more like guidelines, and sigils that have not been assigned to a guild are free game for placement anywhere.  I would think crownies would fit best with the look of Kaliphlin, but then, I am slightly biased. :laugh:

Things have been a bit crazy on both the work side and family side until Christmas unfortunately, so I've not had any opportunity to start a build yet. Still planning to make an entry however (I have another 130 hours or so to go :laugh:), but it will rather be a part of the harbor than the full harbor of Barqa this time.

(I've never been one to ask for deadline extensions, so I won't start now.... but I would appreciate one very much :laugh_hard:)

I won't lie. I'm glad that I'm not the only one!  I have an idea and have been collecting bits and pieces for the build, but have not yet brought it all together.  Of course, we are in the process of moving again (hopefully this is it!), so I've been a little busy!  But, fingers crossed, I should have a dedicated build space soon! :wub:

Thanks for the extension, this will allow me time to put together something a little nicer!
