  1. Agreed. Just didn’t have time to mess with much landscape and thought a smaller base would look strange. I wanted to make sure it looked like it was the only structure around. Thanks.
  2. *Your entry has earned 7 XP* When the Empire fell, the Imperial corporations and member-systems that created the Pentastar Alignment were free to enforce their vision of the authoritarian rule. Some things did improve - they were more isolationist and industrially focused than their belligerent and occult predecessor. Being a smaller empire however has allowed them to be much less inclusive of non-humans, which does not diminish the horrid history of the Empire. Once tolerated non-humans are fleeing the New Territories, including Duros Carus Baul and Neimoidian Puck Gung. Along side them are those who outed themselves as Republic loyalist in the hopes of a New Republic after Endor. In such perilous times, any sort of dissent cannot be tolerated, and the Pentastar Alignment has dedicated some of it's greatest assets to hunting down thought criminals like deserter Marcus Fimmel, mechanic Hooper Dri, mechanic Cuz Enedi, and their droid IT-18. They were not able to escape by themselves. Followers of the Force have put together unlikely allies to free these people. Former Imperials turned Followers of the Force coverts BR de Marias and ISB field officer Nagol, have already evacuated their families and now must flee with the help of Red Moon pilots Dwa Lin, Ethianpes Carey, and Jax Eht Tibbar. Leading the underground network is Clawdite bounty hunter turned spy Zaz Sikari. They meet quietly in the abandoned factory in the depths of Entralla. Factory floor inspiration from Pombe. Windows inspired by factories of fascist Italy. continued with...
  3. *Your entry has earned 27 XP* Following Lorrd, refugees from Entralla move on the Jedha before escaping to Vohai. Their shuttle is unarmed and quite vulnerable, but well suited for discretely moving as many people as possible across hyperspace. The stopover in Jedha will allow the crew to refuel and resupply before their longest stretch. Not much survived the attack on Jedha, but the Imperials that returned for "disaster recovery" maintained a fairly independent outpost that ended up being highly influenced by the Followers of the Force that quickly followed, making for a quite, unassuming ally to those escaping the New Territories. https://www.instagram.com/p/COaDjN_JvBr/?igshid=26e4iutm0pvc https://www.instagram.com/p/COaOcV5JSQR/?igshid=ir7eche7r6vc

    Episode VIII: Unknown Regions

    Holocrons Revealed! Holonets are reporting tragic news that not only is there a secret Imperial Remnant pulling strings across the galaxy, but they're also in possession of many dangerous, mystical, terrifying Jedi and Sith Holocrons! All Factions are scrambling to catch up. With such domination of the Core Worlds, their search must reach out further; but where to go? Contest Specifics: Assemble your exploration teams, probes, and shuttles to explore the far reaches of the galaxy. You will have a chance to explore planets that would be otherwise inaccessible to your Faction. Each entry title must include the name of the system they are choosing to explore. For example, "[Factions Ep. 8 - Cat. A][S12 - Nal Hutta & Nar Shaddaa - BS] Expedition to Lothal" Category A: Fig Barf - Create a team of intrepid explorers that will scout out far reaches of the galaxy. Must show a crew of 12 new characters preparing for their mission. Builds must feature the Faction capital (or whatever the equivalent would be for your Faction would be). Builds that score at least 5 XP will have explored the targeted system. Builds that score at least 10 XP will have explored the whole sector of the targeted system. Limit 1 Cat A build per builder. Category B: Probe Droids - Design and build a new, unique probe droid that will go where ahead of your crew or to the reaches of space too dangerous for living organisms. Probe droids must be unique, but still believable in the Star Wars Universe. Builds must feature the probe droid on the targeted planet. IP will not be earned on the targeted planet. IP may be earned on any accessible planet by using that planet in your entry prefix. (This may be a little confusing.) If you're wanting to explore Endex, but your Faction wants to earn IP on Devaron, you would title it "[Factions Ep. 8 - Cat. B][M13 - Devarron - CS] Probing Endex" Builds that score at least 10 XP will have explored the targeted system. Builds that score at least 20 XP will have explored the whole sector of the targeted system. Limit 1 Cat B build per builder. Category C: Exploration Shuttles - Design and build a shuttle that can reach the far corners of the galaxy. Ships, preferably shuttles, may be minifigure or micro scale. No starfighters allowed. Must include room for (but not necessarily feature) cargo, sleeping quarters, and a crew of 4-12. Ships must be a new or modified design, that fits into the Star Wars Universe. We don't want to see a bunch of regular Star Destroyers or other non-modified shuttles. Builds may be on any accessible planet and earn IP according to the regular rules. Builds that score at least 10 XP will have explored the whole sector of the target system. Builds that score at least 20 XP will have explored the whole sector of the targeted system and all adjacent sectors. Builds that score at least 30 XP may choose to post their IP on the targeted system. Limit 1 Cat C build per Faction. Episode will run from March 1st to April 30th May 2nd The Rules: Entries should be set during the Factions Era, roughly 7 ABY. All entries must be posted as a new topic in the Factions subforum, the title prefixed by [Factions Ep. 8- Category][Build Sector - Build Planet - Faction] Target Planet included in Title. For example, “[Factions Ep. 8 - Cat A][S12 - Nal Hutta & Nar Shaddaa - BS] Expedition to Lothal." Each person is only allowed 1 entry in Category A & B & C. Each Faction is only allowed 1 entry in Category C. All entries must be entered using this form: Link to Submittal Form All rules in the Core Rules topic apply unless otherwise stated in this explanation or the rules above. Each Category has size restrictions. Follow the Contest Specifics, above. The Episode will run from March 1 to April 30 May 2, 2021. As long as it is still April May 2nd somewhere in the world, you can still enter. Entries posted after the deadline will be disqualified from the episode and will not be eligible to receive points or XP. Entries will be judged according to the following rules: Your build can earn up to 50 points. The amount of points you earn is also the amount of XP your character earns. This episode/contest is open to all players of Factions, even if they joined EB or signed up for the game after the episode has begun, with the exception of the Star Wars staff, who are not eligible to win prizes. All entries must be new creations, not posted anywhere else prior to the start date of this episode. You can use creations for this contest in other forums or contests, but it should not have been displayed before the start date for this contest. You may be asked by a staff member to change your entry if it is too similar to an earlier creation. All entries must be built from real LEGO or with Lego Digital Designer. No third-party molds may be used except for minfigure accessories (if you must...). If you are using Lego Digital Designer, please remember you can only use existing colors and pieces. Also be aware that the judges will watching to make sure your LDD model could hold itself up in real-life. Post pictures no larger than 1024x768, as specified in the EB Member Guidelines. You may do a 'full-blown photo edit' with all the text, effects, background compositing, support erasing, and other effects on ANY picture. For obvious reasons, any photo editing that changes the shape, functionality, or color (not tint or adjustment, but actual color) of a LEGO piece is prohibited,. All entries are considered WIPs (Works In Progress) until the deadline passes. Until the deadline has passed, you are allowed to change and improve your MOC. The Prizes: You will receive XP equal to the number of points you are awarded from the judges. Your faction may receive exploration data, and even IP on an inaccessible system, based on the Contest Specifics, above. Physical Prizes:

    Factions - Introduction, Discussion, and Core Rules

    March 1st is here... known Holocrons are as follows... I18 - Virgillia 7 (controlled by the Triumvirate) J7 - Iridonia (controlled by the Pentastar Alignment) K12 - Kalist VI (controlled by the Triumvirate) K4 - Muunilinst (controlled by the Pentastar Alignment) L10 - Tython (controlled by the Black Sun) M13 - Devaron (controlled by the Triumvirate) O10 - Gorse (controlled by the Triumvirate) R4 - Ziost (controlled by Clan Eldar) Factions have until July 31st to battle for the Holocrons or go find their own! For extra motivation, note that once Factions restarts, the number of Holocrons your Faction collects and the amount of XP you earn will be very beneficial in the initial map set-up stage.
  8. *Your entry has earned 44 XP* On the secluded beaches of Selvaris, the Red Moon corvette finds refuge from the reaches of the Pentastar Alignment and the New Republic, alike. Though a peaceful community, some of the Followers of the Force have tolerated the Red Moon's presence among them, aware of the immense danger brings. https://www.instagram.com/p/CL2P_vkJpXY/ More notes on the build and WIP shots on IG.

    Limited Time Challenge! Updated for May 4th

    A Bright Future The build must incorporate a primary color (red, yellow, blue) in a major way. A few examples could include the yellow Naboo starfighter, an all blue 501st speeder bike, or an all red building. Deadline February 28th. Include "Bright" in your title. Work with your faction leader to make sure you're using an adequate amount of the primary color; the intention is to make builders work with a color that is not typical in the Star Wars aesthetic. Variants of the primary colors (dark red, medium blue, bright light orange, etc.) maybe be used, but only as subtle accents to the primary color.
  12. *Your entry has earned 10 XP* The Dokmar Coven practice their "primal scream" therapy in the wildlands of Ossus.
  13. *Your entry has earned 10 XP* Captain of trade, Maru Sectura of the Sorocco Guild, leads the crew's financier, his personal butler, and Kaduu driver down the green and white avenues of Atrisia.
  14. *Your entry has earned 12 XP* Lord Cailler, minerals magnate of Clan Elder who has held on to the long tradition of Mandalorian mining interests, is not above the beck and calls of his daughter and her love for nature. While visiting Atrisia on business, she was sure to drag him to the renowned botanical wonders of the planet. They are accompanied by their former Mandalorian pilot, who gave up The Way after being caught and imprisoned by the Empire, and geologist/wildcatter escort, who joined the Clan as an adult.
