    Book III - Avalonia: Guild sign-up and Discussion

    Thank you. I am going to attempt to get one of the smaller challenges done before the end of January hits. Then I hope to do the intro to my story next month and finish the build that I used as the back drop.

    Book III - Avalonia: Guild sign-up and Discussion

    Just introducing my sig fig. No title at this point just a commoner/farmer. His story will be told in time as it takes place during book II and book III. Name: Niall O'Connall. Age. 17 (this is the age where his story begins. He would be closer to 20 by this point in book 3) Hails from: Remote Avalonian farm in western Avalonia. South of Burrium and NE of Helenia although its exact location is not well known as the local farms and small hamlets have long been left off any well known maps.

    Thanks for the feedback. My building time is limited so if I can begin working on my town/city diorama as well as content for my characters story whether that content reflects past present or future ideas it becomes the ideal situation. So when I see a challenge I instantly think, how can I progress or provide content for my story/town/landscape while also meeting the challenge needs. That also really helps to focus my thoughts on what I want to showcase and how.

    Thanks Henjin. I have enjoyed the stories which have led me to formulate my own. What will be unique with my story is the need to introduce characters and scenes vaguely in order to participate in contests while the full story is worked on in a more linear fashion in the back ground. So participating in a contest now may result in a vague scene, no back story as the image is set in a scene where my character is going to end up but far from where he starts. Or it may show acquaintances without backstory as these friends and comrades have not met yet. Would this be too out of context to participate in the challenges? My goal would be to tie said scene I portray in a challenge to at least make it fit the current timeline that is unfolding. It may just be achieving this by not fully immersing my story with the current events. But parallel to those events. Let me know if this kind of story telling and contest entries are acceptable before I go too far down that path. It is the only way I can think of to create a story while participating in the current book 3 at the same time.

    Book III - Avalonia: Guild sign-up and Discussion

    So my quick apologies for not getting to this sooner. I meant to join Avalonia towards the end of book 2. Life got in the way, young kids and lengthy home renovations forced the lego into storage. Renovations are now close to completion and with it comes the addition of the full sized lego room allowing me to begin my journey into building. I would say I am a collector first and a beginner builder second, but the dream has always been to collect enough to build large scale. Anyone else have those ideas books in the 90's of castles and realize they never had enough cool pieces to build any castles the same size? Anyways, hopefully tonight if not this week I will introduce my sig fig. I likely will not be able to get too into the challenges until later in the year or winter. My sig fig's story will focus likely on a story that I hope does not clash with lore from book 1 or 2. So feedback on that when it happens is welcome. I am also extremely green with eurobricks forums and flickr so you may look for many questions about posting, where to post, where to find correct challenges and building tasks so I can make past, present and future building plans. My room is being setup to accommodate a large scale town/city diorama which has been the plan since before I found Historica. I will be using Historica to focus my ideas and to gain ideas and feedback and to challenge my green abilities. Look forward to posting soon. Question 1. How do you upload an avatar or photo on here the easiest?
  6. Is there a secret part list with part numbers out there somewhere?

    Book II - Avalonia: Guild sign-up and Discussion

    Thanks Henjin. I will introduce him this week then. He is already built just his story will affect his appears fairly early on in his story development but I see no harm in introducing him early and being vague about his intro. Cheers

    Hoping to have chapter 1 done this week. We shall see I was hoping this weekend but sick kids easily distracted from building. But the moc is 3/4 done thanks for letting me know.

    Looking to claim the following area in Avalonia. Claimed as "Riin" Please let me know if any issues and if the photo is clear. My paint skills are not strong. The dot off the coast was me claiming the spec of an island as part of; if allowed. https://www.flickr.com/gp/150574863@N04/4NW3LS

    Book II - Avalonia: Guild sign-up and Discussion

    From my reading I am sensing GoH is on the verge of the ending of book 2. Is it okay to still claim land with the current map as is as well as to consider a contribution to the capital map etc in the near future or is it best to wait until book 3 for those specific things?

    Book II - Avalonia: Guild sign-up and Discussion

    Thank you for this. I familiarized myself with Avalonia's back story but not the other factions. If the Lion Knight is in direct conflict I will have to get creative then and tweak my final plan a bit but this helps thanks

    Book II - Avalonia: Guild sign-up and Discussion

    Alright fellow Avalonians. One last question before I put the final touches on my sig fig and intro. This specifically applies to keeping things somewhat close to canon. I have a theme and story that my character will be part of that goes hand in hand with creating a much larger scale diorama for me and my kids. I feel it will give me the chances to do smaller builds and gain feedback as I build up the sections to the much larger final product. That being said before finding Avalonia my plan and significant financial resouces went into structuring the final product around medieval figures that complimented and went hand in hand with the "lion knights themes". As you can imagine these themes do not share any back story I can find with Avalonia and their color schemes definitely do not compliment each other. So with that being said my question is this. Would it be considered impossible for a "domestic" force or territory that was not dark green or green at all to dwell in Avalonia? A force whose fealty is to Avalonia and when called upon can and would muster forces under Avalonia's colors; but whose home forces or defensive forces that work to secure their territorial borders share a very different sigil or colors? Basically the answers to this will impact how a character is introduced and where I take his story in my building process.

    GoH official challenges and my commitments!!

    Found this topic to be most fun to catch up on. Lends some faith I can make it work. I am taking the plunge into MoC building for the first time since I was much much younger. But with a 6 year old and a 2 year old running around it is hard. The oldest knows better of what to touch and leave alone but with the amount of space MoC building takes up "accidents" happen....the 2 year old on the other hand is a whole different story. He can run, climb a chair, reach tables....all while not knowing what he can and cant see....I now have a rogue chicken and cow somewhere in my house from my first moc I will have to try and locate. If there are others in the group that can build with young ones I am glad I will be able to still be productive. Was worried I would always be up against those who churn out big mocs in weeks lol

    @Exetrius @Faladrin @de Gothia @Kai NRG thank you all for the welcome. Could one of you folks point me to the appropriate place to ask questions about building techniques and trouble shooting? I do not want to start a topic or post in the incorrect thread.
  15. Small sets are great for figures and introducing new elements but it would be nice to see some medium sized, more technical/advanced building technique sets that have a good range of useable parts and less things like BURP/solid walls with stickers and more small pieces. Something that would really sell just for a decent ratio of color and useable piece counts.
