    Factions - Introduction, Discussion, and Core Rules

    Please don't submit any forms or post any builds yet. Core Rules will be posted soon and all of the factions (led by builders with 150+ XP) need time to create their faction's post.
  2. It's a time of upheaval in the galaxy. The New Republic has just defeated the Empire at the Battle of Jakku. Those who fought in the Rebellion now have to adjust to being a part of a legitimate government, or find other means of employment.   Those who fought for the Empire no longer have an Emperor to follow and must decide whether to align themselves with one of the many Imperial Admirals staking a claim or forge their own path.  Those caught in the middle must adjust to a newlife and pray they can make a living under a new regime.    Add to this turmoil the news that Holocrons of the Jedi have been rumored to be surfacing in various places across the galaxy.  It is rumored that only a Jedi or Sith can unlock the true potential of a Holocron, but there are those who have been able to manipulate them enough to get at least some data. The data they've recovered speaks of an earlier age, a forgotten time. Days when Jedi and Sith fought across the stars.  Or an army of clones sought to preserve the order of the Republic.  There are many who will pay a hefty amount of credits or even kill for this data.  Now, the New Republic, the fragments of the Empire, smugglers, bounty hunters, and anyone else who has access to a starship are seeking them. Welcome! Welcome to the latest community build and contest project for the Eurobricks Star Wars forum! Star Wars Factions is a building Role Playing Game (RPG) set between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens. Specifically, it starts immediately after the Battle of Jakku, but builds from any era are welcomed. There are many different factions you can petition to join. Being a part of a faction allows you to participate in 'episodes' (challenges), build freebuilds to earn in-game XP, tags, and other rewards, as well as other aspects of the game. You'll have a main character in-game, and through your building, you can advance your character and help your faction win. Getting Started Private Message (PM) a faction leader to ask to join their faction. Each faction has it's own style, storyline, and aesthetic, so you'll need to create a character in line with whatever faction you petition to join. Faction description, requirements, and contact info can be found in each faction's post at the top of the Factions subforum. Create your character, upload a 100x100 picture to your preferred image host, and fill out the Character Creator form. You can choose any name for your character but please keep it appropriate. Players may change factions at any time, but faction leaders do not have to accept new recruits. Alternatively, when builders have earned 150 XP they can create their own faction. Introduce yourself in the Introduction and Discussion topic. Fill out the Character Creator form to have your character added to the active players list. Read up on the Core Rules here! Where to Post What This subforum, Factions, is used for this game. As such, you should only post your entries to Star Wars Factions here. The Core Rules contains the rules; questions about the rules should be asked in this topic. Players should introduce characters in this Introduction and Discussion topic and fill out the Character Creator form. All posts in this Introduction and Discussion topic should be Out of Character. Each faction will have their own way of communicating, so check with your faction and discuss your upcoming builds, Works-in-Progress (WIPs), strategies, and storylines through whatever method your faction leader proscribes. Announce your free builds in your faction topic to receive feedback, but make sure to also fill out the appropriate form to have it scored. Episodes will be announced in their own topics, and you will be able to use those topics to ask questions about and discuss the specific episode. 
  3. Each faction will have a dedicated post to explain their faction and recruit builders, so I hesitate to do that for them. If you're really itching to build, feel free to just pick whatever SW era inspires you the most and worry about fitting it into your faction later. We intentionally made this a flexible game that has room for all types of SW builds. (Considering some of your past builds, I'd suggest starting on Naboo. There's a lot of source material and it's flexible era-wise.)
  4. We're very close, finalizing rules now

    [Ep XVII Freebuild #3] Prowl Great Cain

    N.P.U! The crown, of course, but, more subtly, I really like how those profile bricks look in the doorway. Great shots throughout. Excellent bunkroom!

    [Freebuild 2.2] Checkpoint 717

    Very nice, lots of great character in the details
  11. Thank you! That sums up everything I was hoping to achieve with this one. And, yes, I'm pretty sure he dropped it.

  13. Movements: We want move left to Q9, than up to F9, go left to collect the bonus on F2 and use the remaining movements to go as close as possible to the Shield Generator. "It really wasn't my fault. My squad was on long range recon and they told me to find some supper. I was out for hours before I happened upon this great, fat wild boar. Only it wasn't a boar. Just a piglet. And after we cooked it up and the squad had their fill, the sounder came around looking for revenge. There's only two of us now, but it doesn't look like it'll stay that way for long. Lucky for me the other guys didn't let me eat yet, so I've been a lot faster on my feet. Right now I'm not sure which is going to be worse - this mad momma pig or reporting back to the platoon. I guess we'll see. :(" Endor Boar-Wolf by Ryan McBryde, on Flickr
