  1. Guilds of Historica New Member Guide

    Southern Avalonia could have those palm trees, if you wanted it to, as I imagine it being rather like Spain down there, but quite frankly (as @LittleJohn and @Kai NRG have indicated), Kaliphlin does need some more active builders right now; I won't try to talk you out of it any further. Whatever you choose, I am glad to have you here!

    Any of those three could conceivably be Mediterranean in climate, especially southern Avalonia and either the west or east coasts of Kaliphlin. Nocty could, perhaps, though that is certainly not the type of vibe they project to the outside world. At this point I think it matters more what kind of story you want to tell, the kind of character you want to be, and the larger world in which you want your stuff to happen.
  3. Old Mage's Tower

    Definitely getting some strong @The Maestro vibes off of this, with an eccentric old guy living in a ramshackle tower. That's a good thing, though it would also be great to see something new. I love the roof on the tower, especially the wooden beams coming off at the angles. I also like the angles of the multi-faceted tudor section. It might be slightly top-heavy, but I like that aspect (and besides, plaster and wood should be much lighter than the stone beneath it, and should be able to be much larger than the supporting tower). The wheelbarrow by the door is the best part, I think, though, especially the close-up picture that you have. Good to see another build from you!

    Well, technically @TitusV's land claim is actually on the border with Kaliphlin, about as far away from the Mystic Isles (while still in Avalonia) as possible... Thus you would expect him to know something about his southern neighbors, even if they are somewhat below his notice as a "stuck-up snobby Avalonian". I am surprised you didn't add something about hugging trees or wearing tights, as those also seem to be common insults hurled at those of us who like rather moderate amounts of sand, snow, and strange creatures, and prefer fertile fields and only slightly (ok, sometimes extremely) magical deep forests. It is fair to point out, however, that all of the guilds encompass a great variety of landscapes, climates, and peoples, and are not reducible to one single stereotype of person or geographic feature. In theory, at least, any race could live anywhere, and there can be snow in Kali, sand in Mitgardia, monsters in Avalonia, and farms in Nocty. And everywhere has mountains, trees (of some kind or other), lakes, and rivers.
  5. Book II - Avalonia: Guild sign-up and Discussion

    The official intro does not need to be a build, by the way. It can be simply a picture of your sigfig against a plain background, with some accompanying text (even just a sentence or two, like: "This is Bob the Avalonian, and he is a simple farmer who aspires to great deeds one day. He lives on a small pig farm near the edge of the Mystic Isles and is fascinated by the legends surrounding them.").
  6. Summoning gone wrong

    The highlight for me is the use of the lighting, but the whole vignette is lovely. The repetition of the simple pattern of the SNOT bricks and 1x1 round bricks is very effective. The green color of the windows and the summoning pit is delightfully Nocturnian. I also love the toilet paper in the troll's hand... A great first MOC in the Guilds.
  7. [MOC] Kaliphlin flying Tradesman

    It does have a vibe coming strongly from the early nineties castle themes, like a cross between the Black Knight colors and Fright Knights style with all of the dragon wings. I am not sure how well it fits into the aesthetic of the Guilds, though, as flying things besides creatures are generally seen as toeing the line (or crossing it, sometimes). I think that some lore behind it to justify its inclusion would be good (like: "The dwarves of Kaliphlin have harnessed the soul of the blackstone and compelled it to drive them through the sky through strictly controlled magics and carefully guarded secrets). The color scheme could be simplified and refined, I think, as it is a bit all over the place right now. That being said, it is a nice looking fantasy airship.
  8. Oasis Retreat

    Very nice, TM! Though it is a bit too sparse for you! Where are the extreme textures and wonky angles? The base is my favorite part of it, though the rest of it looks good, too. I do think that different leaves on the palm tree would be better, but that is small.
  9. Shinmizu Village

    Looks great, and I especially love the variety of roofs you have included here. My favorite small detail is the stone temple building, though I do find it a bit odd that it is joined to another building like it is (right at the edge of the builder transition, perhaps?). The waterfalls are a very nice touch, and it would be cool to see more of this mashup, perhaps with more and wider canals. Good work you two!
  10. Book II - Avalonia: Guild sign-up and Discussion

    I think I've got a good idea of what you are claiming. I'll add it to my unofficial map as soon as you post an official intro with sigfig and backstory. Welcome, again!
  11. Guilds of Historica New Member Guide

    @Ares, welcome to the Guilds! Avalonia is the best, don't listen to Kai...
  12. Challenge: "A safe haven"- Celebrating five years of GoH!

    I live in the States, and I am pretty sure Ecc lives in Europe, so I was not expecting to see it any time soon myself - though probably before TM in NZ!
  13. Book II - Avalonia: Guild sign-up and Discussion

    @LordBevis, welcome to the Guilds! In particular, welcome to the best guild! I look forward to seeing your stuff in action.
  14. ["A Safe Haven" Challenge, Cat. A] The City of Bandari

    Thanks, mccoyed! High praise indeed for the smithy. Please take anything you want and use it! Glad you like the figs, they are almost entirely taken from my CMF entry to the same contest, with the addition of some centaurs and aelfcats (humanoid--or elf-oid--cats, from Chima).
  15. AoM: Mill Phase 3: Firoir Watermill

    Splendid as always, SK! You have this Skyrim-inspired building thing down pat. My favorite part of the build is hands-down the arches under the gables of the roofs, particularly the larger one. The snow on the eaves is also excellent, continuing your mastery of snow. The stacked chopped logs by the ax is a nice touch, with the 1x1 quarter circle tiles on the ends. Great irregular base, too. My one complaint is that the olive and sand greens are too evenly mixed into each other for my taste; more clumping would improve the look, I think, though perhaps you experimented with that and chose to mix it together like this instead. That is minor and it does not really detract from the model, though, so don't worry about it too much... Another gorgeous model, all in all.
