    New Custom Uniforms 

    The belts look great. A huge improvement that should also help to differentiate between the officers and enlisted men. I'm not sure to what degree you're looking for historical accuracy, but a few points you might consider (based on the coats, I assume you're going for a pre-1800 look). 1) The Queen's American Rangers wore caps, not tricorns (while the opposite would be true for most British line infantry up to 1800). You might consider switching the hats between the two minifigs. 2) Officers usually had one belt (like the ranger currently has) while enlisted men had two (one for the bayonet and the other for their cartage box). I believe this was also true of rangers, and you may consider giving your soldier the second belt. 3) If you're ambitious, you may consider painting some lace on the brim of the tricorns. I most enlisted men had white lace while I believe officers (and sergeants?) had a silver lace. Best of luck with this project, and I hope you continue to impress.

    New Custom Uniforms 

    A unique approach, and one that I think holds a lot of promise. The possibility to create proper, regimental-specific uniforms is a great advantage over standard Lego as well as the fact that you can create a proper coat that goes below the waist. You may consider experimenting are ways to get the proper cross belts as this is such an integral part of the enlisted soldier's uniform. One thing that looks off is the collar. Maybe I'm just too used to seeing it included on the torso, but here it reminds me of a noir detective's trench coat with the collar up more so than a colonial uniform. I think it may be that the edge gets a little too close to the mouth with makes the collar look too tall, but this may just be a compromise one has to make when working with Lego. I do hope that you continue to work with these and further hone your technique.

    [W-OKT] Orellana's Townhouse

    This is a very impressive introduction to BOBS. The build on its own is great, and I really like how you incorporated certain parts in uncommon ways (the bars across the windows, for example). The architectural style you used really captures the colonial Spanish design, and I’m particularly fond of the courtyard. Well done, and I look forward to seeing where Senor Orellana ends up in BOBS.

    Le Phénix

    A very nice ship with a good classic Lego feel to it. Your use of the curved and sloped parts to create the brick-built hull is a little blocky, but still very good given the parts you are using. The detailed decks are very nice, and remind me of the playability features on Lego’s official pirate ships. While the ship is largely Lego, it does look like you are using some non-Lego string for the rigging as well as unofficial sails. These are great features, and I would encourage you to continue experimenting with these as they can add lots of details without the need to spend lots of money on new Lego bricks.

    [OL-FB] Foreign Legion in Eltina

    That's a nice little build, Bodi, and I can certainly see the Classic Pirates inspiration in the design. One area that you might consider revisiting on future designs is the roof as it seems rather plain. Perhaps some more detailing around the edge would help, or giving it a slight slope. Regardless, it's still very nice.

    [COR-FB] The Defiant

    This is a very nice ship, Bregir. I like that you chose a lesser-known rig to build, and that you did such a fine job implementing it. It appears that you included many of the important details (including a pump, between the 1 and 2 guns if I’m not mistaken), and your action shot of gunnery practice was a great way to introduce us to her. While I am not sure if you are basing this on a particular model, it does appear to me that the bow is rather squat and not as pointed as I would expect to see on a ship. It looks more like the bow of a larger, heavier ship than of a fast privateer. But that could just be a result of the ship’s actual design or a limitation of building with Lego.

    Adventure MRCA

    We could use some GM input for the Travels to Terraversa AMCRA. At this point we are waiting to see what the NPC reactions will be.

    Oleon: Sign-up and Discussion, Era II

    I had no idea that so many foreigners were desperate to have their actions recognized by His Most Sacred Majesty, but I suppose I shouldn't be surprised that their own nation's paltry awards and titles are simply inadequate when compared to the glory and honors that could be bestowed by the Empire of the Light! And while no rule prohibits foreigners from applying, I think you're going to need a better argument than "I went two years without starting a war, and since I'm not currently in prison I can stop by and pick up my prize anytime."
  10. Your faction leadership would be a good place to start. If they cannot help you or if your question is of a technical nature I can assist you.

    Account Summary

    We're improving the troop spreadsheets so that it is easier to track and find your faction's soldiers. I still have to transfer over some troops from the old portion to the new. This should (hopefully) be done in a week, but in the meantime some discrepancies may exist.
  12. The Account Summary has been updated for the most recent MCRA.

    Account Summary

    It is licensed. The property report shows the owner. You licensed it in Quinnsville's name so that is what you need to search to show the results. As far as his bankers are concerned his debts are paid in full. The Order of the Faith may have other ideas, but that's between you and them... @Wellesley You should be added now. If you notice any unusual, please wait and check again in an hour or so. Adding players is intensive on the spreadsheets and it may just take a few minutes for everything to update. If the issue persists, please let us know here. Sorry for taking so long to respond. Mesabi Landing went from a city to a grand city. As settlements increase in ranking, their trade value diminishes (see the first table for the Trade Value Modifiers). This represents increased local consumption and serves to motivate players to expand and colonize more land.

    I'll add this to my to do list, but I won't be able to check until later this week.

    There's no deadline so feel free to apply when it best fits your story. As for the Order (being the Order of Saint Arltress) does not have equivalent ranks for clergy, but members of the clergy are welcome to apply. The Chevalier title applies to both civilians and soldiers, and I believe there are some historical examples of religious figures being knighted throughout history. If you're asking about the Order of the Faith, the answer is, again, no. Since this has been of little interest to players we have not fleshed it out yet. Phred is working on something, and we can try to expedite this process so religious characters have an official hierarchy.
