    I feel like a Tortuga-esque pirate colony could be interesting. Not a place to go conquering, but a location that can facilitate a number of different story beats. I feel like a Handsome Jackpot Casino from Borderlands 3 vibe could be pretty engaging. The location is partially decked out with glitzy, kitschy neon lights, almost a 60's Las Vegas look, while the rest of the spaceport is seedy tunnels in the underbelly of the casino and flotillas of bulk cruisers and fighter jets of the smugglers and cutthroats that operate the locale. I feel like it could make for a fun returning locale.

    What I’d like to see for our galaxy is an inner and outer rim, sort of like Star Wars. The inner rim are worlds set in stone, a little bit. They have named major spaceports, ecosystems, and inhabitants, as well as culture laid out. These planets are designed to be open enough that game masters have enough liberty to explore these planets and the stories on them easily enough, while maintaining a consistency to them. If you’re familiar with Age of Sigmar, think of Inner Rim planets like that games Realms: defined enough so you get an idea of what the planet is like, but vague enough for there to be room to explore. The Outer Rim is a space for game masters to go wild and design whatever they like. Over time I imagine the Inner Rim expanding to include planets from the Outer Rim. We can in game explain this as a wiping of records and space maps in a recent conflict by some hostile force, and now the planetary routes need to be charted again. Nurglings got into the wiring, I don’t know.

    I imagine there being a difference between divine and arcane magic. Arcane magic is likely drawn from the elements of the cosmos. As for why the gods don’t intervene often, it’s because they themselves still fear whatever Aurorielle fled from: hunters at the edges of the galaxy. They cannot consistently interfere, since they risk revealing themselves to greatly.

    I’ve been busy lately and haven’t been able to contribute as much as I want, so I’ll add a concept I’ve had for awhile. The gods of this setting are tangible beings. They are immensely powerful and have the power to bestow blessings and channel their divinity to their priests. This means that, in theory, these gods can be met in-game, their presence able to affect adventures. Aurorielle, one of the oldest gods, is known as the Mother. It is said she fled across space, away from war and found a desolate place in the universe. There, needing a place to raise her unborn child, she created the planets. Her child, born into the world, became the first sun. Or, something like that. ? I love the visual Kid Icarus: Uprising gave, of the gods just looming over horizons, but I also picture more intimate, direct confrontations with them.

    I feel like this is best one to choose from. It allows for characters to still fall into classic tropes for certain ancestries (elves, dwarves, halflings, etc) while allowing players to come in with their own unique characters and cultures.

    I'm going to try and get that creation story I've been meaning to write up for... awhile... finished.

    Guess who's back? Back again? Kinto's back. Tell a friend. I've been itching to get back into something on Eurobricks, and I'm willing to lend a bit of help. I'm fairly busy at the moment, but hopefully I can lend more help in the future.

    Heyo! Things are looking promising! I love Bowser's Castle, and the brick built designs for the characters look great!

    What I'm curious about is which sets will the Mario figure be included in? He can't be in all of them, he looks to expensive and sophisticated to include in all of them.

    Super Mario 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    I think that's where I'm the most interested, is in the possibility to make one's own courses. Looking over the video again, it does seem like each section with an activation tile for collecting coins or taking damage is on a round 6x6 tile that is two tiles in height, so you can connect them in any way you see fit, which makes me think the sets can all be combined together. It seems when Mario passes over the tiles, it registers with the Mario figure and tracks whatever it is you're doing, which I think is neat. The video also states "multiple sets shown", so what's being presented is what we can expect from this theme.

    Super Mario 2020 - Rumors & Discussion

    This is an incredibly Nintendo thing to release. I'm kind of enamored by it's brazen weirdness, in all honesty. I'm more curious about the actual behind the scenes negotiations between the two companies now than anything else. How did this weird little concept come to fruition? It also sounds like Charles Martinet, the guy who has been voicing Mario for almost three decades has done some voice lines for this, which is neat! I think the tech looks really cool. I have no idea how it's done, but it looks like there's room for customization in being able to make your own "levels", which I think is neat. Is it exactly what I wanted? No, but this still looks really cute. Seems that the set in the video comes with a toad house, a koopa troopa, a monty mole, a shyguy, a blooper, a goomba, Bowser Jr., Yoshi, and Mario. Still calling it as Bowser's Castle, but picturing it in this scale is... honestly kind of endearing.

    This looks incredible! I'm not familiar with the source material, but you've done an incredible job translating the source material into model form. Awesome stuff!

    I think the strength of this theme really comes down to two points: it's minifigures, and it's ability to get across locations in the series well enough. I'm calling it now: the big set of this wave is going to be Bowser's Castle. Black, dark grey, dark green, red, and orange in colour scheme. Collapsing bridges, fire ball shooters, the fire bars, a cage to put Princess Peach in: I can visualize it pretty clearly. I'm also going to predict that one of the sets will be a ghost house, another iconic locale from the series. I think ultimately if Lego can pin down what's associated with Super Mario into a set, they'll do great. But still, that potential minifigure series has me salivating at the lips. Here's hoping it's not confined simply to Super Mario and we some other Nintendo characters in minifigure form.
