    Nice figs and posing Whitefang. I wish the Spears were a little more common/cheaper. They are far superior to the old Spears, but are hard to come by.

    Book II - Avalonia: Guild sign-up and Discussion

    Your country is not disappearing, it is just becoming less specific spatially.

    GoH Book III

    Heenjin barely edged you out. Your entry was excellent! You can go ahead and name your City whatever you would like.

    GoH Book III

    Book III will be starting on August 19th. Queen Ylspeth has taken the throne, reestablishing the royal line, as well as stability in Historica. (courtesy of Henjin Quilones, winner of Challenge V from Book II) Guild Allegiance With the transition from Book II to Book III, all existing Historica members have the option to switch guilds, or remain with their existing guilds. Please declare your allegiance by posting a picture of your sigfig in this thread below. If you are keeping your current guild and character, you can the keep your current sigfig makeup, but you are encouraged to update your sigfig in the time that has passed in Historica by providing a new picture of your character. There is the possibility that one of the Guilds may be retired if there is not enough interest. If this happens, any existing members of that Guild would have the option to remain in and build within that Guild, but a retired Guild will not be able to accrue points with Challenges or Free-builds. (Please don't ask for clarification on this, because we don't know if it will happen yet.) Allegiances must be posted by AUGUST 1ST for the official Guild count. As always, members that have not pledged their allegiance by this point will be able to declare after the 1st, but members will not be able to switch Guilds once their allegiance has been posted in this thread. Historica Lore I doubt anyone has noticed this, but the lore of historica is slightly daunting to review. Members are invited to provide a brief synopsis of the history of the Guilds that covers the basics of Historica prior to Book I, The period covered by Book I and the period covered by Book II. You do not need to cover specific Guild history, only the history of Historica as a whole. Feel free to post your synopsis in any format that you would like (paragraphs, bullet points, etc.) but the one rule is this: You must be able to read the synopsis in 3 minutes or less. (Don't ask for specifics on this about reading speed or word counts - use your best judgement). The member that posts the best synopsis (as judged by the collective consciousness of the Nocturnus Pie population) will be granted the title of Historica Lore-Master. Historica Reborn There has been a very large gap between Book II and Book III. Kids, work, real life have gotten in the way, but we are ready to move forward in the vein of Book I. We have incorporated some willing guild members to support the Guilds Leaders in running Book III. These guild members have shown dedication to Historica over the past few years, and will be key to the success of Book III. The chapters of Book III will be occurring every 4 months (August, December, April) and a month and a half will be provided to complete each challenge. We will also be revitalizing some of the non-challenge events like the Age of Mitgardia, Albion-esque City building and the HSS. Avalonia will be purged of all territories, and will revert to the placement of Cities, similar to Kaliphlin, so you won't have to worry about encroaching on what members have historically done. Many devoted members have continued to post and contribute during the "dark ages" of Historica, and thanks to them, we are able to move back in to the full swing of things. We want to make the Guilds a fun place to post fantasy builds, flesh out your worlds and ideas, and make friends that share your interest in building castle and fantasy with Lego.

    Latest impact of other themes on historic themes

    Robert Howard had a very similar storytelling style for a lot of his stories, and often told a similar Conan-esque story in different settings, but it largely fell into a fantasy-type story with Technology falling more into "artifacts" of a sort. For most authors, there is a rather distinct difference between fantasy and science fiction. You will always have some exceptions, but the vast majority follow one type or the other.

    Guilds of Historica New Member Guide

    GoH is not dead. I moved last year, took over running an office, and am taking care of my 2 and 4 year olds, and am frantically working to finish my Brickworld builds for next month. I have a number of GoH builds to post from the past two years, and we will be presenting a GoH collaborative build at Brickworld. We will also be finalizing Book 3 at Brickworld, so that will be kicked off shortly.

    Gorgeous army; I also love the mounts. The dinosaurs work very well with the orcs. I picked up one of the newer Triceratops, and wish I'd picked up a few more.

    [Moc] Elves Castle Vol 2

    I like the use of the angled walls, and the greenling and general build/concept. You may want to provide a little more consistency with your use of white: more widespread or more concentrated. Right now it seems a bit random and uneven IMO. Nice build!

    Brickworld Chicago 2018

    No love for Brickworld this year? I am very excited, but have way too much to build yet (as usual).

    Book II - Avalonia: Guild sign-up and Discussion

    As Kai said, current Lion is typically associated with Kaliphlin. Leo and classic lion themes are not as firmly linked to Kaliphlin and are a little more open to interpretation. It is perfectly gine to wrap Kaliphlin into your backstory. Your character could also live on the border of Avalonia with Kaliphlin, which good some more integration potential. That being daid, you do need to somehow employ dark green and sand green into your characters heraldry as an Avalonian.
  14. Thanks for the great review, again!
  15. Great review as ways. Thanks Whitefang!
