    GoH Book III

    Definitely real world religions are off limits, though many churches and cemeteries in the guilds still feature crosses prominently without raising objections. Real world politics are also off limits, so no saying “I love President Trump” or “I hate President Trump”, for example (insert Putin, Merkel, Johnson, Macron, Xi, etc., depending on where you live). But in-game politics are fine, so you could say “I love King de Gothia” or “I hate King de Gothia”. But if you want to create your own pantheon of Historican gods, go for it! Just don’t expect everyone in the guilds to start worshipping them. I am sure every region has its own forms of worship and sacrifice. Aslanic religion is fairly widespread throughout, and the cult of Sana Argenta seems popular in Varlyrio, but there is no official religion or consensus of practice across any guild. I know there is an Eagle goddess in the Rakath Mountains, and undoubtedly many other deities everywhere else, too, that I don’t remember or didn’t see. So be creative! Make up some fantasy gods for your region, as many as you like!

    Rise of the Baiamontes (Full Story)

    The dragonriders of Druidham would have something to say about that, I am sure. Avalonians don’t fear dragons!

    Rise of the Baiamontes (Full Story)

    I believe he means “the” and “and”. Just kidding. I’m sure it is the coarser word for excrement and others like it, the vulgarities and rough language.

    Guilds of Historica New Member Guide

    Drow are officially black skin with white hair, but there’s room for some variation if your parts aren’t up for the challenge. Aside from Lord Garmadon and some other bad guys, not too many LEGO figs have black faces, and white hair is still relatively rare. As for the map, the one on the wiki should be pretty accurate, though it might not include everything. If you are looking at a specific area, I’d go to the guild thread where that place is located for the most up-to-date cartography.

    Guilds of Historica New Member Guide

    @Legonaut, what Grover has said is pretty accurate. I would add only a few things. First, that pretty much anything goes outside of saying “character X is the ____est at Y”, such as “Bob is the best plumber in all Historica”, since such claims are too broad and sweeping. You could say that Bob is the best plumber in the city of Toelytt, or something of a localized sort, especially if it’s your city. Or you could even say that Bob claimed to be the best plumber in all Historica, since that is only reliant on his own ego and not ascertained fact. Second, as Grover said, there is relatively little established lore in the guilds. Yes, there is the epic canonical history that has been built over the years by the challenges, but there is no set in stone lore for “Elves do X” and “Dwarves live in Y”. If you want to say that a clan of orcs is friendly and only eats kale and quinoa, while doing their sun salutations and living on a lush island off the coast of Kaliphlin, then such a clan exists. But you can’t say that all orcs do that. Third, feel free to create your own races. Did Ninjago just release a cool new beast mold? Then make a new race with it! Lots of folks have spun off new races whenever it was convenient for their stories, while still keeping the more standard races present too (in Historica, outside Nocty at least, the most common races are human, elf, and dwarf, though there are plenty of gnomes, orcs, catfolk, drow, trolls, vampires, etc., as well as half-breeds of all of them). Sometimes the new races even enter the official lore, like the evil minidoll elves. Otherwise, go hog wild and have fun building! Ask more questions when you have them.

    Book III - Kaliphlin: Guild sign-up and Discussion

    Like all old maps, there is a great deal of ambiguity about borders. No official survey teams have been sent out to precisely mark the limits of territory, and quite frankly, with all the unrest in Nocty, they’re vulnerable for a stronger southern or northern lord to scoop up some lands on the sly. You know, plow a few extra acres each year, or extend the wall a bit further than is justified by the land grant, or whatever. Heck, maybe Mitgardia and Kaliphlin should just conspire together to take over Nocty and split it 50-50.

    Book III - Avalonia: Guild sign-up and Discussion

    Glad he got some work! More like Bob the sporadically-employed Avalonian plumber.
  8. A New Ruler, a Mad Ruler Rufus had expected to be pursued – collusion with obscure groups on the wastelands, plot with enemies of the crown in the mountains, use and traffic of illegal substances – one needed only choose which. Yet, he strutted. His chin pointing to the sky, and a crooked smile carved out on his face. Rufus reached the square and glanced at his brothers, all suited in full armor, surrounding a group of weak and outdated old men. The Rego on the center, waved to one side and the other, and when his eyes met Rufus’s, he stopped. A black shadow covered the square as if the sun had been a blown off flame in a dark room. A roar echoed through the canals and panic took the cobblestone streets. An obscure creature opened its leathery wings and lurched over the houses surrounding the main square. Its deafening roar was enough to break the encirclement of guards and leave the Rego exposed. The creature opened its mouth filled with infinite chains of teeth, as the ruler squeezed himself against the terracotta walls and beneath him, a yellow pool formed and ran to the flowing waters of the Varlyrian canals. The Rego’s councilor was shrunken on the ground, and noticing his ruler stripped from all his power, saw no alternative beside to acknowledge his new superior. “All hail the new king, the Mad Rufus Baiamonte!” Rufus laughed and his eyes gleamed gold as the sun, as he saw his future sitting on a new throne, under the chant of “Mad Rufus! Mad Rufus! Mad Rufus!”. ______________________________ An entry to the collaborative category of Challenge V. My teammates are @Gideon and @Louis of Nutwood.

    Book III - Kaliphlin: Guild sign-up and Discussion

    I'm sure they do, since most roads do have names. Have they ever been named in Historican lore? Maybe, maybe not. But just as Main Street can turn into Highway 36, so too can "Westroad" in Settlement A be called "Bob's Lane" in Settlement B. Which is to say, call them whatever you please. Perhaps the road towards Eastgate is Eastgate Road, and one going south could be "South Road", or whatever is convenient for you and your story. Does that answer the question?

    Caravan along the Arkbri

    I love the river, and the cutaway bank is perfect. I am super impressed with the variations in the water color, which makes it look that much more authentic, like a real body of water with different depths. Not sure I’d want to be walking on a path right above that overhang, but you nailed the look. As usual, the foliage is excellent, and love the whip tree.

    Welcome, @Silver.Smith! Or should I say, welcome back! Glad to see a veteran of Avalonia returning to the fold.

    Whoops, my bad! It was something I was wondering, though, so thanks for answering! I'll try not to ask too many inane questions...

    I’m assuming that the LEGO logo on the studs of bricks is ok? And what about printed elements with the LEGO logo? Or were you just meaning that we can’t add the logo in post-processing?
