    I am an AFOL who has been playing with legos for over 20 years. In college I started my own collection and having been adding to it ever since. I love Castle and Star Wars themes though will occasionally dabble in Mecha. The MK in my screen name stands for Missionary Kid. A title I am very proud of and one I hope to give my kids soon.

    Factions is Officially Open!

    Sign-ups have begun! Take a look at all 6 faction intros, choose the team you want to join, and then sign up with this web-form. Familiarize yourself with the rules, ask questions, and get to know the game mechanics! The first challenge will begin soon. But in the mean time you can start post free-builds for your team to help build up IP. For everyone who played SoNE, all your XP will convert to IP for your faction leader to use in gaining more planets.
  2. The new Lego Star Wars role-playing game, Factions, is open for signups! Check it out on the Star Wars forum. Pick your faction, build some awesome MOCs, and help your team find the holocrons!
  3. I've heard this rumor from multiple sources. I think it's a pretty verified rumor.
  4. The tan piece is the new 1x2 round plate in tan. I got it in larger number of Bricks and Pieces. The 2x2 dark tan tiles are on top of two 2x2 plates and then spaced with 1x2 tan tiles. It all rests on plates allowing for the offset of tile stacks and sideways tiles.
  5. Another build for CCC. Something different from my normal GoH build, but I feel like it fits the Kaliphlin style and aesthetic. Please share any critiques! Far away, in the land of Taabu, lived a fair princess. Her name was Selena and she was betrothed to be married to a handsome prince. But the evil Djinn of that land despised their happiness. So he sent a duo of Monkey Faeries to kidnap the fair princess. Will her guards be able to protect her?

    Factions will never have as many game mechanics as BoBS. The world is not big enough for BoBS, let alone 2 games of that sort! We will be launching the first challenge soon after everyone has had a chance to sign up for their factions. Apart from challenges, the biggest game mechanic is controlling planets and sectors with IP (XP earn also earns IP on eligible planets). You want to control planets and sectors because you want to find and control the holocrons! And yes! You can sign up for your factions now! Use this web-form to officially sign up. Introduce yourself in the appropriate Faction Intro thread and in the core Intro thread. And make a signature using this new generator! (Please note that Flickr pictures are not supported yet. We hope to fix this in the near future.)

    I can almost guaranty that whichever faction you join your MOC will fit in one way or another so get building!

    Next Faction Intro is up!
  10. Faction: CorSec Faction Leader: MKJoshA Capital: Coronet City, Corellia Planets: Corellia, Trellen, Ojom, Thyferra, Yag'Dhul, Qiilura, Bothawui Systems: M11, L14, L7, R14 History: A lot has changed on Correllia since the day Lady Proxima’s gang ruled the streets. As the Empire grew, law and order were established in Coronet City. Working hand-in-hand with the Empire’s security forces, the Correllian Security Force (or CorSec as it was more commonly referred to) was established. After the fall of the Emperor and with the rise of the New Republic, Correllia began working cooperatively with New Republic Intelligence. CorSec, already having a reputation for producing highly skilled operatives and always getting the job done, was called on by the New Republic to help establish peace across the galaxy. While primarily a security force, CorSec has grown to include other departments. They have their own in-house mechanics. As well as their own in-house medical team. As their influence across the galaxy grows, so does CorSec's departmental needs. After the Battle of Endor, Mick (or MKJoshA as he was known then) left the Rebellion to return to his home world of Corellia where he joined CorSec. His previous work with the Alliance Intelligence division made him more than qualified for the job. He kept tabs on all his friends from the Rebellion and even recruited some to come work with him in CorSec. But he was glad to be back home and working for a legitimate government. He wasn’t ashamed of what he’d done with the Rebellion, but he slept better at night now. Everyone in the Force knew his background, so when his commanding officer Corran Horn called him to meet with a representative of the New Republic Mick wasn’t surprised. Corran said, "Mick, I want you to meet Alexsandr Kallus, New Republic representative." Kallus said, "Good to meet you Mick, Commander Horn tells me your the man for the job." Mick replied, "Thank you sir, I'll do my best. What job do you need done?" Kallus answered, "We've got our hands full in the New Republic right now. I've got a batch of new recruits who need training in the kind of skills CorSec is famous for. Naturally we'll work with CorSec if you find a being you'd rather keep in your ranks. Can I count on you?" The next day Kallus brought in the first batch of new recruits. "Listen up!" Kallus shouted. "You're here to follow instructions, not mouth off. So give your undivided attention to Mick." "Alright, so here's what the training process will look like..." began Mick. It was going to be hard but worthwhile work getting these recruits up to speed. And this was just the first batch! Maybe you'll be part of the next batch? "Join CorSec!" You can sign up here in this thread.
  11. Please keep all future complaints about the Black Card VIP perks in the appropriate thread. This thread is for set discussion not complaints about how Lego has handled the Black Card program.

    Yes, this timeline works. The main contests are set between the Battle of Jakku and the new Resistance show that's airing which is set before Force Awakens. So your main character should be someone who fits in the Factions Era. But we will have plenty of opportunities for you to build in other Eras so you can have multiple supporting characters, even ones set in the past.

    Hmm, good points. They are supposed to be trees, but not having the full shot does make their inclusion somewhat nebulous.

    Keep the questions coming everyone! As goatman has clarified, if you gain 50 IP on a planet you can certainly keep gaining more! The team with the most has control of the planet and 25 more XP is needed to take it over. If that planet has a holocron on it the rules are the same. The first faction to gain 50 IP on a planet will have control of the holocron, but the can loose control is another faction gains 25 IP more. We fully expect those planets to change hands multiple times. We are charting new waters here by allowing the rise and fall of factions on a rolling basis. So eve though we're starting with 6 now, that's just because we had 6 people interested and eligible to start out as faction leaders. If things get really quiet here we could go down to 2 factions, or we could get even more than 6 going. But that's the beauty of the model of Factions!
