    Guilds of Historica New Member Guide

    Not sure where to put this, but is it possible to clean up the pinned topics? I feel like this was tried once, and there is a pinned thread with links to other important threads. Maybe the free build thread can be listed in there, the challenges/commitments thread can be cut loose, etc.? I just feel like having 12/25 topics on the first page is a little cluttered, but then again if it doesn’t bother anyone else, it’s not a big deal either.

    Book III - Avalonia: Guild sign-up and Discussion

    It’s a Star Wars helmet, although I can’t be any more specific than that. I think i probably got it in the 2017 Star Wars Advent calendar, although I really don’t remember for certain anymore. Edit: Yes, I was right. It’s from this guy here: https://brickset.com/minifigs/name-Imperial-Ground-Crew

    Book III - Avalonia: Guild sign-up and Discussion

    Thanks! I know fleshier are the best. You’ll have to excuse Titus, he’s been a little confused—going as far as saying he would almost like to join Mitgardia! I didn’t mean for the helmet to be Avalonian—I was actually designing an antagonist, maybe he is from Nocturnus, not sure yet.

    Book III - Challenge I: A Time to Rebuild

    I feel like it’s pretty standard, but haven’t usually had time to build he larger entries, so as you say, it may not have standard on such a large limit. I’m mainly asking because I’ve built a crane, that does fit within the limit, but it also rotates, and when rotated and placed in a nice position for taking pictures, a corner sticks out over the edge. I also have a tower sitting on the edge where a crennelation sticks out one stud, but that can be much more easily adapted. Edit: I just looked at some of the book 2 challenges, and 32x32 limits seemed to always allow reasonable overhang. I couldn’t find any challenges with a 64x64 limit.

    Is reasonable overhang also acceptable?

    Book III - Avalonia: Guild sign-up and Discussion

    Auron of Osgard formally pledges his allegience to Avalonia. His backstory (including the story of what happend to Osric) will come soon. Also, I was working on a few figs, and wanted to ask if anyone found this particular helmet (posted in the spoiler) convincing as a medieval helmet. I think it roughly resembles a helmet that I thought was called the Hounskull Bascinet, but after having looked up pictures of that helmet, I think it must be called something else. Anyone, let me know what you guys think. Thanks!

    Book III - Avalonia: Guild sign-up and Discussion

    While we’re on the subject, my settlement of Osgard (which I think I built up to a harbor town, but has not yet even been recognized as a hamlet), sits on the coast very near the Mitgardian border. I’ll be posting my new sigfig and his story soon.

    GoH Book III

    So, I've certainly been less active lately, but I finally took the time to read this thread and get caught up a bit on the comings and goings here. I would really love to be more involved in GoH again. The biggest thing that has decreased my interest include the lack of progression lately, which seems to be addressed and headed in the right direction (Z, terribly sorry to hear about your mother--I'm glad life seems to be turning around for you again, and I'm looking forward to your future builds, including more from Project M?) I also moved this year, which means a dedicated hobby room, so I finally have a proper place to build (yay!) but until we get a bit more organized, my Lego table is dominated by my wife's sewing projects (boo!). My son who will be 5 soon is also turning into a MOCer, which means any builds I start tend to get altered several times. Since my wife likes to call me Lord Business anytime I get too upset about it, I usually let him play with my builds, which usually means I'm not overly productive when it comes to building. However, I'm hoping that once Book 3 launches it'll motivate me to finish hanging shelves (including some out-of-a-5-year-olds-reach WIP shelves) and organizing the hobby room so I can get back to building. I have an almost finished build that keeps getting nexo knighted by my son, as well as an accompanying story that I'd like to post sometime soon. Anyway, I'll be returning to Avalonia, with a new SigFig for Book 3. I'm very excited to see what the leaders have planned. Just to throw in my two cents, I'm pleased to see that the leadership for Book 3 is being selected in the way that it is. I would also fear strong personalities coming in and changing the direction of things, especially in the case of Varlyrio, and the discovery of new lands. One thing I really liked was how Mitgardia did the Algus challenge with several members helping with builds and story, as did Kaliphlin with their Challenge IV? prelude builds. I think that kind of thing may be a good idea to prevent leaders from getting overwhelmed by everything. I also think that having someone like Z overlooking things, without directly leading a guild, but instead planning and managing, while delegating tasks to the guild leaders, is a good idea as well. While I understand the desire to close Nocturnus, I would personally be against it. The Desert King's victory was won in no small part due to Nocturnus builders, so while they may not be as active in their chat, they are most certainly influential. On the topic of GoH getting official sets, and trying to get a designer into the guilds, or a guild member to become a designer, as I understand it, Avalonian member Rolli actually is a set designer these days. That being said, I really don't think we would ever get a set, but hope that eventually we will get another castle theme. Maybe a LOTR series reboot (similar to the Harry Potter reboot) to accompany the upcoming series? I'm almost done rambling now, so to conclude, I'm glad the guild is doing things the way they are right now. Yes, GoH is very inactive currently, but rushing into new things would be the wrong way to fix it. I'm satisfied with waiting for everything to be ironed out before launching Book 3, and I trust the old leaders to put the GoH reigns into capable hands, just as the Book 1 leaders did. (Sorry for the length of this post, and any spelling errors, my English spell checker doesn't seem to be working.)

    Book II - Kaliphlin: Guild sign-up and Discussion

    Avalonian challenge number 2 (at least I think it's number 2) is to describe your settlement/territory. While it is an Avalonian challenge, other guild members are welcome to it, and there has been at least one other Kaliphlinian to complete the challenge. It's the only one I know of that doesn't require any builds. Maybe you can start there if you want to describe your settlement.

    AoM: Mill Phase 3: Firoir Watermill

    Recognized this immediately as being (inspired by) the mill in Riverwood. Everything about it looks fantastic. Really great work here!

    Book II - Avalonia: Guild sign-up and Discussion

    Some great looking builds, everyone. Keep it up! I'm happy to announce were officially in our new home, with a dedicated Lego room (half of a room anyway). We still have a lot of unpacking to do, so I won't have a huge amount of building time for a while, but i have started a new project (since my large diorama WIP didn't really survive the move). Unfortunately we won't have internet for the next two weeks, which means I won't be uploading any pictures for a while, so I guess I missed out on the current challenge. Hopefully I'll be back around more often very soon!

    Book II - Avalonia: Guild sign-up and Discussion

    I guess I’ll start. It’s hard to consider myself active because I haven’t really built anything in a while, but I do try to check what’s happening every day or so. However, I’m still Avalonian, and plan to be building again soon. We are moving in January, and I’ll have a dedicated LEGO corner, so I can always build when I want (the main reason I haven’t been so active is because of space restrictions in our current apartment). I’ve got a large WiP right now, would be 6-8 baseplates when finished, but I might get distracted by some other ideas I have rolling around. I’ve also been thinking of another multiple chapter adventure for my SigFig to go on, but if I went down that’s road I’d have to scrap my large project for parts. Its great to have another new member, and I hope there’s still some others fairly active here, and not just playing BoBS, AG, etc.

    Nativity Scene II

    A very nice nativity scene! I definitely prefer this one over the one you did last year. I also built one the last two years, but couldn’t do one this year because we’re moving. But now I’ve got some good inspiration for next year!
  14. I think like a lot of AFOLs, my ideal Christmas Tree is one on top of a mountain of Lego.

    I appreciate the support! Actually, this reminds me that in addition to settlements with lords, I will also have to come up with some companions (without a settlement) that the player can enlist into their party. I probably won't be able to do a cave settlement, but I may be able to show the entrance to a cave with some buildings around it, assuming your cave city would have some buildings around the entrance. I definitely will need help along the way, especially once the game is semi-playable, it'd be nice to have some people test it out. There are a few other things I have yet to work out--maybe you'll have a few ideas for them. I'll let you know once I come up with a list. I'm finding that I'll need a lot of little villages, so really, I think any settlement that has some builds should be able to be included. I can't have everyone's settlement be a large town or city, so a lot will end up being considered villages. The biggest things I need to include a settlement were listed in my last post--lord, sigil, castle name (if applicable) etc.
