    Book III - Challenge II: Bread and Circuses

    You can probably submit it for scoring, but it would not be eligible for winning, and may get a small scoring penalty.

    Book III - Varlyrio: Guild sign-up and Discussion

    Prime Minister of Trade: Rogue Angel Minister of Arms: Garmadon Minster of Ward: Narbilu @Basiliscus - you would likely be vying for Minister of Agriculture or Plantations. Once you have established an example of your key business areas, you can expand to anything else relating to the other aspects of your trade. This may be related to your primary business (storage or transfer warehouses, wine merchants, glass blowers, or other things like what @Muakhah mentioned above) or alternately other trade goods under your Ministry (such as grains or vegetables for Agriculture) or other interactions that relate more to securing contracts, political intrigue or power struggles. If someone else wants to challenge you, they would try to do a better job of portraying their business under the same Ministry. Maybe they have giant pumpkin farms, and do pumpkin pie and festivals and decorations, etc. But it all comes down to how well you are showing the extent of your power throughout Varlyrio.

    We will be establishing family ranks after the end of Challenge II. This will be determined by free builds, Challenge Entries and Family members portrayed. As mentioned previously, if your builds portray your family engaging in their 'Trade', it will help you win that position (if it is available). Make sure to post you families and Challenge entries by the end of the month! (the next family rank assessment will be after Ch III or Ch IV). If you don't have a sigfig posted yet (@Andrew Spader) AND at least a free build or Challenge entry ( @W Navarre) you will NOT be eligible to have your family ranked. (Andrew - you may have posted your sigfig, but I don't remember it)

    I may be misinterpreting, but this was in reference to what can be viewed as evil, not savage, even though I mentioned how some can view others as "savages". Sacrificing the weak to save the strong can be viewed as 'evil' especially in modern-day society.

    My understanding is that Elves and Dwarves were minute beings until Tolkien converted them to the full-size humanoids they are today, but I could be wrong on this. Orcs were a completely new creation, correct?

    GoH Book III

    Nope, just a friendly reminder to all.

    Book III - Varlyrio: Guild sign-up and Discussion

    I am in agreement that races as a whole would not typically be evil in GoH, but the values and cultural norms of a race or society can make them 'seem evil'. The following mindsets likely exist in GoH and would be viewed as "evil" by some: - Viewing strength and prowess as key qualities and adopting the "might means right" or "survival of the fittest" strategies (Most wild animals) - Place little value on individual life, or embrace self-sacrifice (colony insects) - Viewing other life forms as inferior, insignificant or unacknowledged (humans vs. ants, "Civilized" vs. "Savages") Power = Right in many more isolated communities, and the Wastelands would be a good example of this, as was Feudal Europe. The wastelands are much more prone to powerful groups taking advantage of less powerful groups. There are many bandits, marauders, and other lawless folks there. In addition to human settlements, there are also gnome, goblin, lionel, minotaur, orc, etc. Pretty much anything you can think of or want. We also don't want to make too many blanket statements about the wasteland as a whole. This is a vast area, open to many different interpretations. In regards to the Drow, we have adopted Tolkiens' Elves and Dwarves wholesale, and many races from Dungeons and Dragons, why would Drow be any different? Most of world history is extremely dark, our history books just portray things more nobly (not that that's a word). Varlyrio is a bit darker than the other realms, and I think GoH can handle it. BTW, I love the Belgariad and Mallorean, but it is too rosy, and every character is the best at the world in everything they do. Still love them though. GoT is great because it does a much better job of portraying how the "good guys" are never universally good, and do bad things, and likewise the "bad guys" are never entirely bad. There are good people and bad people, but it is still all in shades of grey (other than the Mountain-that-Rides and Ramsey Bolton)

    GoH Book III

    Just a little reminder to everyone here: This is not the place to get into extended and potentially divisive discussions about real-world issues. If anyone is considering an extended defense or justification of anything that is related to RELIGION or RACISM or SEXISM or real-life POLITICS, please refrain from doing so. This is not the place for these types of discussions. It is perfectly acceptable to get into extended discussions about races and culture and politics in GOH, but these should not get argumentative in nature, and you should be able to restrain yourself if you are starting to post something that is getting you worked up, or feeling divisive. Thanks!

    Book III - Varlyrio: Guild sign-up and Discussion

    Quite a few posts in the last few hours. As Andrew said, this is not the place to get into extended and potentially divisive discussions about arguably racist roots in literature. The concept of whether there should be evil races or not is just fine. In the future, if anyone is considering an extended defense or justification of anything that is related to RELIGION or RACISM or SEXISM or real-life POLITICS, please refrain from doing so. This is not the place for these types of discussions. It is perfectly acceptable to get into extended discussions about races and culture and politics in GOH, but these should not get argumentative in nature, and you should be able to restrain yourself if you are starting to post something that is getting you worked up, or feeling divisive.

    REVIEW: 80101 Chinese New Year's Eve Dinner

    Great review Whitefang! I've been forward to this set ever since the first pictures surfaced. I love the figures and printed tiles, as well as the build overall. Now I just have to get my hands on one :)

    The Sunken Tavern

    I have never seen a similar Lego build before. I actually built this for Brickworld 2016, but just hadn't posted it yet. I'm sure someone has built with upside down boat hulls before (Someone just posted one in this forum recently) but I had never seen the other curved roof style that I used for the rest of the roofing.
  13. This dragon is fantastic! It looks very organic despite being brickbuilt, and the sails work perfectly as wings. Excellent work! Your are doing a great job representing the Mystic Isles!

    Fort Defiance (Varlyrio 1D)

    I would echo what others have said. The groundwork and terrain are excellent, if you could add a little bit of detail to the walls and roof, it would make a huge difference. Great story though, I'm enjoying your storyline progression. I also like using the dummies to portray power. Nice work!

    Gnomish Warehouse of Kashgar [VAR - Freebuild]

    Very nice clean build, I especially like the brown horn on the railing - this works great! I forget how much I like having you in my Guild because you do the massive expanding Cities/Fortresses, etc.
