  1. Brethren of the Brick Seas (BoBS) Intro Thread (Just looking for the Master Index?) What is it? Brethren of the Brick Seas is a role-playing building game set in the age of discovery/age of sail. It is the land of infamous pirates, brave sea-captains, bold explorers, cunning traders, and heroic soldiers, and it is open for all who wish to join! Through official challenges, minichallenges, freebuilds, the economic game system and the raiding and commerce system, every player has a role in the development of the Brick Seas and the potential to alter geopolitics, and eventualy history. The four playable factions interact, cooperate, compete and struggle for power, just like the players do, in a diverse world, where you can help explore (and exploit!) the riches of the new world. (For a quick start guide, see here) How do I sign up? To sign up, you first need to pick one of the four player factions: Sea Rats Oleon Corrington Eslandola Then you need to create your sig fig and post it in the relevant faction thread, and you are now an official member of BoBS! (For a guide on how to sign up and get started, check out the Quick Start Topic) Where do I ask questions? For general questions, lore questions, or history questions, ask in this thread. For faction specific questions, ask in the faction threads. Ask away! Background: The year is 617 AE (After Empire) and this is the dawn of the second era of colonialism. Only time will show what history will bring, but all three nations are looking to solidify their hold on their new posessions. Era I was kicked off with the discovery of lands across the Sea of Storms. For the first time in the history of the continent of Halos, new lands had been discovered. Even more shocking, the Halosians were no longer alone in the world. Once thought to be a flat plane, where monsters roamed the edges, the world is now believed by most geographers to be most certainly round. This was proven first with the discovery of Terraversa by the Mardierian explorer, Ardmond Basker. For 100 years the Mardierians have held Terraversa as a far off gateway, keeping all others out and not allowing the information of the world to the east, or New Terra, to permeate into the rest of Halos. At almost a 1000 miles from the next island in the Sea of Storms, the island remains a most crucial point on the voyage into the unknown. As time went on, other nations of the Madrice Peninsula began to search the seas for other islands and their potential riches. South of the Basker Islands, Corrington took Tiberia, an unforgiving rock just outside of the much more lucrative tropical zone. Oleon found LeBellan, the jewel of the Sea of Storms. LeBellan sits right inside the tropical zone, and produces sugar in vast quantities. 56 years ago Eslandola took possession of An Holli and An Toli, two smaller islands south of LeBellan, both sugar producing as well. Despite gaining footholds in the Sea of Storms, the other Madrician nations were unable to voyage beyond Terraversa. This all changed with the death of King Harln of Mardier, and the vast civil war that began in the country in 595 AE. Instead of looking to gain territory from Mardier’s mainland, the Eslandolans approached the Viceroy of Terraversa and paid him handsomely for permission to trade at the island. The Viscount took it further and allowed ALL nations to pay for the privilege to visit his island. Twenty years later, as the civil war continues, Terraversa has become a defacto independent state. The Viscount’s son, Miro Oldis, now runs the island, and his father’s policies live on. It is not certain if the Mardierians will reestablish their colony or not after the war, but it may be too late. In 597, intrepid Eslandolian explorer Cato Calrelli sailed east from Terraversa into the unknown. It was thought to be suicidal at the time, but he returned 70 days later with the news that he had found more of New Terra. He claimed the land for Eslandola, and soon the Kingdom of Eslandola was the leading nation in colonization. In 605, news circulated throughout the Madrice Peninsula that the Eslandolans had found gold on their island of Nellisa, and this set off a thirst for expansion and exploration never before seen. With Terraversa as a launching spot for new expeditions, Corringtonians, Oleanders, Eslandolans, along with some Garvans, Mardierans, and Carnovans made their way towards New Terra. Many found themselves unable to find supplies at Nellisa, the Eslandolans baring even some of their own from landing on the island. These vagabonds headed south, where a new isle was found, one with few resources, but great defensive harbors. Soon, the Sea Rats had a home. Angry that they had been dispossessed and had not found aid, many turned to vengeance on the Eslandolans by becoming pirates, and many of these pirates began to prey on all nations, and even their fellow pirate. Besides Terraversa, where the Atwi tribe lives, no new natives have been found yet. The islands beyond Terraversa have so far all had strange abandoned settlements upon them, and some sailors say that there is a whole new nation of people in these far waters, but no one has recorded seeing a non-Halosian or Atwi person yet. The first era, spanning the years 615 and 616 AE, marked a rapid expansion into newly discovered lands, in a race to maintain relevancy in the power struggle of Halos. Oleon, Eslandola, and Corrington all laid claims to a multitude of islands and invested heavily in new settlement and industries. In order to protect these new holdings, a naval arms race developed, and the merchant marines of all three nations grew rapidly. In the shadow of the immense wealth being shipped home from the colonies arose a rag tag group of opportunists, who styled themselves as a loose confederacy known as the Sea Rats, plundering, smuggling, raiding, or sometimes just living free outside the grasps of the empires. All factions await new souls to take on a role in the New World. Who will win in the end? Nobody knows, but for sure the sea will play a large role in deciding the fate of these rich new lands. She can be a cruel mistress to those who do not respect her, indeed, and the only guarantee in this world is that salt will run through your veins as you become part of the Brethren of the Brick Seas. The Map: The map is a part of the storytelling mechanism. As you can see, it is not totally defined yet. This will change as time goes on. New portions of the New World (and some of the Old) will be uncovered through events, challenges, and other parts of the project. New islands will be claimed, older territories will be taken in war, and the map will stay dynamic throughout the story. Builders will have the map revealed to them over time, and they will help decide what lands are conquered. With that said, the first part of our story will take place in New Terra. Your character should probably have some feasible connection that would lead them to that region, or it may be hard to really participate in the early challenges. A baker back in Eslandola’s capitol city is probably going to have little interaction with things going on in New Terra. We will eventually have challenges that happen on the mainland, and different story events “back home,” but we are emphasizing the pirate theme and its nature primarily in the first part of this project. Once a firm piratical lore and history is established, more aspects of Enlightenment era politics, war making, and commerce will emerge. Rules Thread History and Background Thread
  2. So you've read through the vast amount of information here. Now what? This topic is for all general discussion, questions, and inquiries about the Great Brick War. We welcome all members to engage in a thoughtful and productive discussion. Please be kind and courteous!
  3. WELCOME TO BBN! The Brick Built News Channel Your Hosts for the evening (in order): Brick Johnson, John Studley, and Phil Brickman This is the place where staff members will create story lines and show events that are taking place in the brick world. Players will need to keep an eye on this thread as events may be covered that affect their country. These News Casts are independent of side builds and staff members will not receive points for any of these.
  4. Campaign 7- Failed State The RON and COAC Forces failed to secure all of the military installations in Xenor. They are both scrambling to secure the 3 remaining sites and engage each other on the battlefield. Sites Lima, Oscar, and Papa were not cleared by either side. Lima and Oscar are both clear of Nukes, but Xenor military personnel are still deemed a threat, though they have lost their leadership and have largely disbanded. In the shuffle, it is suspected that Xenor military personnel detonated a tactical nuclear weapon in the city of Haams outside of site Papa. Though small in size, the nuke did significant damage to the city. The staging COAC AND RON forces preparing to battle inside the city are now taking Nuclear Fallout precautions. Xenor military personnel have evacuated site Papa due to the engulfing fallout. Militaries from COAC and RON Nations arrived in haste to all 3 locations. The stage was now set for the largest battle of the war so far! Campaign Guidelines The 3 battlefields are: The radiated and battered city of Haams Weapons test site Lima Army Base Oscar Each player can choose which battlefield they want to attack. This does not need to be publicly disclosed until the player posts their campaign. (PLAYERS FIGHTING IN AND AROUND HAAMS MUST SHOW PREPARATIONS AND PRECAUTIONS FOR RADIATION - Post Apoc Fans, You're Welcome) Which ever side has the most cumulative points at each battlefield will capture that battlefield. The most battlefields captured wins. All builds must be posted as a new topic in the “Great Brick War” subforum, the title prefixed by, "(GBW- CP7)" followed by the Country you’re representing, and then your MOC’s Title. Example "(GBW- CP7) Filace - Broken Country" Neither side should show their forces definitively destroying the opposition. Showing successes is okay, but not total domination. The winners of the campaign will be decided based on the points awarded from judging. This means if your team doesn't score well, it's possible for your forces to be beaten back. MINIMUM SIZE BUILD IS 32 X 32 All LDD Builds must be labeled- Example: (GBW- CP7) Country - Title of build (LDD) All builds must be new MOC’s and not prior builds. Photo Editing is to be kept to a minimum with only real edits of lighting and color correction. No special effects. Players may crop one picture of their MOC onto a background picture to help with their landscape if they’d like. Pictures cannot be bigger than 800x600 Players may post a link to an offsite host such as Flickr where Higher Resolution pics are located. Be cool and share your photos in the GBW Flickr Group! Please refer to the General Rules Topic for limitations based on your Point Level.

  5. I'm rebooting my idea for a Lego themed RPG made in RPG Maker VX Ace. There seemed to be some interest here last time I mentioned it. There is a Google Code project that talks all about it here. I also created a ModDB page for the game. So far I've rendered and imported a lot of graphics, but one thing I am really missing is a good story or plot to tie it all together. I envision a story that starts in modern small town setting, but grows into a scifi or fantasy tale. Here's the latest video: More videos here:

  8. Filace CP5- Bird in the Woods Part 2 of 8 COAC Campaign Map Name: Studica Grid: E8 After the shoot down of the COAC Jets flying over Xenor, the COAC embarked on a multiheaded Campaign to rescue the downed aviators and get them back to safety. Captain Beeze's team was briefed on the situation and where they would come into play in this large Operation. /url]Great Brick War -On the Flight Line. https://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?/forums/forum/180-the-great-brick-war by Jesse Beeze, on Flickr Standing on the Flight Line the team was detailed on how they would be HALO Dropping into Xenor territory. The team was to jump from a cargo aircraft flying a commercial route to avoid detection by the Xenor Air Force. Great Brick War - CP05 by Jesse Beeze, on Flickr Once on the ground, the team would have a 4 Mile hike on foot. Great Brick War - CP05 by Jesse Beeze, on Flickr The team would be moving under cover of dark. Great Brick War - CP05 by Jesse Beeze, on Flickr Their target: a Harrier out post close to the border. The Xenor airforce built small cutouts in the wooded areas along the mountains to take advantage of the Harriers VTOL capabilities. The bases were extremely difficult to spot. It was essential to take out as many of them on the ground as they could to support the aerial aspect of the rescue and for future aerial operation in the AO.

  9. Minifig Sub Contest- While we prepare for campaign 6, we thought we would do something different. This contest is a chance for you to show off your custom minifigs that have been kitted up for battle. It can be minifigs that you've just combined Lego Parts, 3rd Party Parts (Gear, clothing, and weapons), or custom modified. There are no specific requirements as to what you should have on your figures aside from them having to do with Warfare. Each player can create one thread to submit up to (3) Entries. No more than 3 Entries per player. Players should title their topics as: (GBW) PLAYER NAME - Custom Minifig Contest For each minifig entry, players should have (3) Images - A Front Shot, Rear Shot, and an Action Shot. Backgrounds of your choosing, but keep in mind your figures are the focal point, not buildings. Pictures cannot be bigger than 800x600 Players may post a link to an offsite host such as Flickr where Higher Resolution pics are located. Be cool and share your photos in the GBW Flickr Group! Players should provide some sort of description of the fig like what they intend them to be or if it is a copy of a real world unit or character. Players should provide a Kit list of what the figs have and what brands they are. Voting will be conducted by a public poll open to the entire forum who have registered prior to February 1, 2018. The top (3) Entries will earn (3) Points a piece and their photos may be used for promotional material for the Great Brick War. So yes, it is possible for (1) Person to win (9) Points. Contest to run from February 1 to February 14.
  10. Recruiting Campaign 1 The Fight for Support We are going to run a small contest and support campaign before rolling out Campaign 5. The goal here is to help boost our membership here on Eurobricks and gain some new members. There are a lot of talented military builders out there who we still have not reached. Our goal with this project is to reach them. Due to the sizing guidelines listed below and the goal of this campaign, players are asked to focus and build extremely detailed builds. The whole point of this game has been to advance ourselves as builders so let's put that to work here and shell out some serious quality work. All builds can be used as promotional material for the Great Brick War. If players are not okay with us using your Pictures to advertise the game, do not submit a build. We reserve the right to disqualify and not include any builds from completion or in our promotion campaign if we do not feel they are up to the quality we desire. There is no team planning needed for this so start working now and don't wait until the last minute. Build Guidelines Players are to build a 16x16 Vignette - No bigger, no smaller. Players are to show their troops doing anything of their choosing in any location- No Blood or Gore All builds must be posted as a new topic in the “Great Brick War” subforum, the title prefixed by, "(GBW- RC1)" followed by the Country you’re representing, and then your MOC’s Title. Example "(GBW- RC1) Filace - Make Building Great Again") All LDD Builds must be labeled- Example: (GBW- CP4) Country - Title of build (LDD) All builds must be new MOC’s and not prior builds.

  11. Campaign 5 Through the Mountains Map Name: Studica Grid: E8 Time: 2330 Hours It has long been rumored that the COAC and RON were breaking international law and moving troops and supplies through Xenor to try and gain an upper hand on one another. The recent tumultuous activity in the Brick of Nations has stirred up a bit of trouble for all nations. Since the latest revelation of the CoST base inside Xenor being bombed by the Xenor air force, RON forces have begun amassing along the North Eastern border of Xenor in preparation for an Assault. Meanwhile a pair of COAC jets were dispatched on a reconnaissance flight over Xenor after the Filace intelligence agent was executed in hopes of spotting more RON Forces. The two jets were picked off by the Xenor Harrier force. Both pilots safely ejected in Xenor territory and are currently on the run. Efforts are now underway by COAC forces to push into Xenor to try and rescue their pilots and restore some balance of order as diplomacy has long since failed. Campaign Guidelines RON forces are to be shown either A. Coming to the aid of the bombed base they had inside Xenor or B. Attacking Xenor forces. COAC foraces are to be shown either A. Searching for the lost pilots or B. Attacking Xenor Forces. RON and COAC forces can be shown bumping into each other or bumping into Xenor forces while completing the rescue parts of the mission. Though not required, players who collaborate can improve their score. The terrain is snowy and mountainous. All builds must be posted as a new topic in the “Great Brick War” subforum, the title prefixed by, "(GBW- CP5)" followed by the Country you’re representing, and then your MOC’s Title. Example "(GBW- CP5) Filace - Broke Back Mountain") Neither side should show their forces definitively destroying the opposition. Showing successes is okay, but not total domination. The winners of the campaign will be decided based on the points awarded from judging. This means if your team doesn't score well, it's possible for your forces to be beaten back. MINIMUM SIZE BUILD IS 32 X 32 All LDD Builds must be labeled- Example: (GBW- CP5) Country - Title of build (LDD) All builds must be new MOC’s and not prior builds. Photo Editing is to be kept to a minimum with only real edits of lighting and color correction. No special effects.

  12. ~This topic is for in-character interaction only, and only open to those joining the faction. Questions and out-of-character discussion should be posted into the General Discussion topic.~ EQUALITY. JUSTICE. REVOLUTION. Fallen leaves of autumn swirled on top of the sewage as Kukulkan, the head of the Orcish Liberation Movement, made his way through the sewers under Eubric Freeport. He followed illuminated engravings on the wall that only appeared to those who had been granted access to the Wolf’s Den, the secret hideout of the notorious Wolfgang. Once he got there, Kukulkan was greeted by Ulric Wolfkin himself. The orc had made an agreement to join the Wolf King's Followers. “I have to say I was pleased when you contacted me, Kukulkan. I have been trying to get the greenskins on my side for a long time now.” “I have had my reservations towards you and your organization, but with the situation of my kind being what it is, the Wolfgang is our best bet. The Wolfgang is not what it used to be – especially now that the witch is gone.” “Ah, yes. Dear Barbie left us not long ago. I’m not surprised you knew about it, given your companionship with the Oracle. We got into a little quarrel over ethics with Barbie, and she flew off to ruin some other civilization. I admit it was stupid of me to think I could benefit from her.” “The witch was nothing but trouble, boss. I learned as much during the mission in Babeleth.” “Yarr, good RIDDANCE to HER!” “Kukulkan, I’d like you to meet Walbartan and Hodurr Thornback. They’ve proven to be loyal followers, so I have appointed them as new Wolfgang Generals. I have weeded out most of the thieves and murderers from my followers, including the old generals, so that my final goal would not be corrupted.” “Your final goal is becoming the First King of Uland, isn’t that right?” “No, in fact my final goal is to install law and order to this place. You know the history this island bears. It is crucial to the future of Olegaia and all the people that live on it. It must be cherished and protected, something the old Houses are inept to do.” “I’d like to hear what makes you think you are any more capable.” “HA! He’s got some BALLS, that one!” "I would watch my words if I were you, orc!" “I appreciate your honesty, Kukulkan. Like you have your calling to save your people, I have mine. I may come from a foreign country, but I was lead here by a higher power to do good – just like you.” “I was shipped here by a bunch of slave traders, but I get your point. And I’m willing to give you the benefit of a doubt. You have the orcs. Better not let us down, or we will show you the wrath of Tarok.” “I will not. I now have two out of the six Veterans of Heroica on my side, so I trust it will make it easier for me to get in contact with the mighty heroes you have gathered under the roof of your Hall, right?” “I suppose so. The Houses will be pissed off, of course, but with their division to Crescent Union and Sungold Alliance, they will desperately try to get heroes on their side as well. War is inevitable, and Heroica will be divided due to it as well, but nothing lasts forever. At least we orcs do not mind war.” “That is exactly why I wanted you on my side so much, Feathered Serpent.” That day Ulric’s reach over both Eubric and Heroica grew greatly, and thus choice members of Heroica were sent letters of invitation into the Wolf King’s Followers.

  13. ~This topic is for in-character interaction only, and only open to those joining the faction. Questions and out-of-character discussion should be posted into the General Discussion topic.~ TRADITION. PROTECTION. AMBITION. On a late summer's day, a great gathering took place at the Hinckwell Villa on top of the Sungold Hill. The master of the house, the wealthy merchant tycoon Heinrich Hinckwell, had invited over the representatives of two other great houses that had been in power in the city of Eubric for ages: the Bonapartes, the wardens of the sea; and the Ziegfrieds, a fabled family of wizards. On that day, the Hinckwells, the Bonapartes and the Ziegfrieds formed a pact that would become known as the Sungold Alliance. "My friends, I have a strong belief that with this pact, we will thwart the advance of Ulric Wolfkin's poison in the minds of the citizens." "That is all well and good, Mister Hinckwell, but what alternative are we offering to the people who grave for justice and laws." "Alternative? Eubric has been a freeport since the day it was founded! I say our alternative is to keep things as they ought to be!" "Lokuro, ei'ara..." "And look how well that has worked out, Commodore!" "Brothers Ziegfried are correct. While we may think everything is fine and good in our city, the people are restless and unsatisfied." "Aye, and not just the poverty. The young nobility have joined the outcry for monarchy." "If the people want a kingdom, I say we shall give them a kingdom. But not one ruled by a wolf-headed outlandish thug, but a noble and civilized king who respects the rich history and customs of Eubric." "But which one of us would it be?" "If we truly must abolish our old ways and have a ruler, I would propose my niece Attina, once she returns from her mission on the Helvetian Ocean. With her worldly experience in leadership and battle, she would make a fine leader for us in these troubled times." "I must say our older son, Lorcan, has the ambition and vision that is required of a great leader. His expertise in economy and diplomatic relationships would be a major benefit to our city." "Mother, you flatter me. I am certain father is better at all of that than me." "But both of them are so young! My husband Altair is an immensely powerful mage but also the kindest person I have ever met. He if anyone could make the people listen to him, and show that we wizards can be depended upon. Many fear magic, but it can be used to do so much good!" "We could stand here and argue about this all day long, but I have a better idea. We need the support of Heroica. With the influence they have on people, they could really work in our favor. So how about we invite those Heroicans who have shown loyalty to us into the alliance, and give them a say in this matter?" All three families agreed to Heinrich's idea, and thus choice members of Heroica were sent letters of invitation into the Sungold Alliance. JOINING THE SUNGOLD ALLIANCE: ~ If a player character has reputation with the Hinckwells, the Bonapartes or the Ziegfrieds, they can opt to join the Sungold Alliance by posting a "letter" where he or she expresses their will to this topic. ~ Once the character has joined, they will lose all reputation with the Shadeaux, the Ji Pei and the Guild of Invision, including access to the expert job classes those Houses offer.

  14. ~This topic is for in-character interaction only, and only open to those joining the faction. Questions and out-of-character discussion should be posted into the General Discussion topic.~ PROGRESS. CREATION. LIBERTY. On a late summer's night, a secret assembly took place in the Chateau de Shadeaux, located high on top of the Crescent Hill. Count Noctus Shadeaux had heard that his rival merchant, Heinrich Hinckwell, had formed an alliance earlier that day, and thus summoned those great houses that had been left on the outs into his mansion: the Ji Pei, foreign ambassadors and innovators, and the Guild of Invision, alchemists that dominated the potion business in the city. To counter their rivals, the Shadeaux, the Ji Pei and the Guild of Invision put together the Crescent Union, as it would later be called, during that night. "It is insulting zat 'Einrich does not deem us worzy ouf zoining 'is effourts tu regain 'old ouf zis city!" "But Count Shadeaux, we are as much of a threat to him and his allies as the Wolfgang. Surely you understand that. Look at us; a true menagerie of foreigners and minority races." "Hmmm, yes. We have all changed this city in our own way too, we have." "U'lalah ith right; only ve knov vhat vreedom truly meanth! It ith conthant change and adaptation! Eubric cannot remain vree in the handth ov Volvgang nor thith Thungold Allianthe!" "Exactement! Zat is why we 'ave to create an opposing force, one to be reckoned wiz! We must give zis city a ruleur who can truly change it four ze betteur." "But who would be such a leader? I would say you are a force to be reckoned with, Umbra. With your cunning and determination, nothing could stand in our way." "Do not sell yourself short, my son. You are wise beyond your years, and your military training will be desperately needed in the times to come." "I agree with your mother, Jun. You would make a fine king for us, and make Eubric a close ally with the mighty Xu." "What about our Guildmaster, hmmm? The Masked Man has been around for centuries, and with his mastermind at our helm, nothing would stand in our way." "Speculation is worthless. We need to see which one among us is the most popular - that is the only way to beat Ulric to the throne. I say we do as the others did and call the Heroicans to join us. They are not always trustworthy, but if we can convince those most loyal to our cause to spread the word, we could win over the common folk's favor." "Zo, we shall leave it tu 'Eroica tu decide who becomes our noble ruler, n'est-ce pas?" All three families agreed to this, and thus choice members of Heroica were sent letters to invite them into the Crescent Union.

  16. Campaign 4 Fighting for the City Map Name: Studica Grid: F4 Time: 0630 Hours After narrowly stopping the COAC Advance, RON forces are now trying to push the COAC back out of their territory. COAC Forces have dug in rather than completely withdrawing out of the city. Both sides have hunkered down in tight Close Quarters Combat with each side fighting from building to building engaging in small skirmishes to try and maintain control of a city block. And we're back after a much needed break so that no one would get worn out. Thanks for sticking around and we hope you enjoy this round. More to come! Campaign Guidelines Both sides are to show their forces engaging in Close Quarters Combat in a city. (Failure to do this will result in a loss of points) The goal for both sides here is to show coordination with each other across your builds. Stories should intertwine and share details. Be creative.

Nations that currently have not declared war will need to do so before submitting combat builds or find other creative ways to build something to fit in with the guidelines. All builds must be posted as a new topic in the “Great Brick War” subforum, the title prefixed by, "(GBW- CP4)" followed by the Country you’re representing, and then your MOC’s Title. Example "(GBW- CP4) Filace - Fueling up the Jets") Neither side should show their forces definitively destroying the opposition. Showing successes is okay, but not total domination. The winners of the campaign will be decided based on the points awarded from judging. This means if your team doesn't score well, it's possible for your forces to be beaten back. MINIMUM SIZE BUILD IS 32 X 32 All LDD Builds must be labeled- Example: (GBW- CP4) Country - Title of build (LDD) All builds must be new MOC’s and not prior builds. Photo Editing is to be kept to a minimum with only real edits of lighting and color correction. No special effects. Players may crop one picture of their MOC onto a background picture to help with their landscape if they’d like. Pictures cannot be bigger than 800x600 Players may post a link to an offsite host such as Flickr where Higher Res pics are located. Be cool and share your photos in the GBW Flickr Group! Please refer to the General Rules Topic for limitations based on your Point Level. Upon completion, players must also post a link to their build in the AAR Thread as well letting the judges know that it is eligible for scoring. Campaign Duration 9/20/17 - 10/29/17 All builds will not be finalized until the closing date for the campaign. Players can edit their posts up until that point. As long as it is 10/29/17 somewhere in the world, you can submit.

  18. Campaign 2 Into the Storm Map Name: Studica Grid F6 Time: 0130 Hours Forces of the elite Refnor Special Boat Service launched down river. Their Mission was to take out a small SAM Site to clear the skies for an aerial bombardment from Filace that was was to follow shortly there after. Immediately, upon coming up on the beach, the team came under fire from a defensive position at the post. The team was scattered. Some lay dead on the beach head.... Others crawled into the woods to try and regroup. The team was then engaged by a defensive force at the SAM Site's control bunker. The Toohati forces captured several of the Refnor Team Members and gathered their wounded. In the early hours of the morning the COAC countries launched a surprise offensive campaign against the RON. Tactical locations were bombarded from the Sea and the Air to make way for a ground assault. Local News Initial losses for both sides have not been reported as correspondents have been ordered off the air during this initial phase of the invasion to prevent any information from getting out which could hurt either side. Campaign Guidelines Countries that are part of the COAC are to build MOCs depicting their side assaulting fortified positions of the enemy. Countries in the RON are to build MOCs depicting their side defending an assault. Nations that currently have not declared war will need to do so before submitting combat builds or find other creative ways to build something to fit in with the guidelines. This a combat based game so if you're holding out from declaring war, you're really missing the point. All builds must be posted as a new topic in the “Great Brick War” subforum, the title prefixed by, "(GBW- CP2)" followed by the Country you’re representing, and then your MOC’s Title. Example "(GBW- CP2) Filace - Fueling up the Jets") Being that this is the first combat campaign, a strong emphasis should be placed on depicting your country's military forces, battle tactics, etc. Neither side should show their forces definitively destroying the opposition. Showing successes is okay, but not total domination. The winners of the campaign will be decided based on the points awarded from judging. This means if your team doesn't score well, it's possible for your forces to be beaten back. There is no minimum or maximum size requirement for this build. All LDD Builds must be labeled- Example: (GBW- CP2) Country - Title of build (LDD) All builds must be new MOC’s and not prior builds. Photo Editing is to be kept to a minimum with only real edits of lighting and color correction. No special effects.

  19. MapName: Studica Grids: E4, F4 Just over the border into Grid F4, Captain Beeze and his team have been tasked with moving ahead of the armored column coming in to look into a possible hardened defense location. In the days of the intercontinental wars, FIlace and Briolui held a series of fortifications together to thwart foreign invaders. This location was once one of them. Since the two nations went their separate ways, Filace gave up any claim to bases inside of Briolui. Their mission is to investigate this one of several fortifications in the area before rolling the armor in. The team chugged along on edge. Up until now, they had never really been in any sort of direct danger. Now, they were the tip of the spear. The first to wade into the dark waters. All at once the world was loud with gun fire and rockets erupting all around the team as they slammed the vehicle to a stop. The Briolui Garrison opened up on them mercilessly firing from all directions and firing ports in the fort. Screaming over the hail of bullets. Captain Beeze: EVERYBODY OUT AND OVER THE DUNE! The team scrambled for cover as quickly as they could. Captain Beeze: Everyone good? Mike: Yeah Ghost: *Nods head* Marcus: SH** I couldnt grab my gun! Mike: You can always throw rocks... Captain Beeze: Ha! The LAV should be coming up any second to pound them. They just confirmed on the radio. Moments later, and LAV25 arrived onsite and started blasting the front facing fortification with HE Rounds. Before it could do any effective damage, the LAV was targeted by antitank gun built into the fort.... and was destroyed. Exiting the rear of the LAV before it was destroyed, Chief Jones was the only passenger to survive the blast. He scurried as quickly as he could up and over the berm to join the team. Captain Beeze: What's the deal Chief? Chief Jones: One hell of a cluster. Members of the team tried to put down some fire whenever they could to avoid any chance of a charge. Captain Beeze: We're gonna need to get some support on target quick or we're not gonna be around long enough for the convoy to make it here. Chief Jones: We have an asset on standby. Let me try and raise them. *INTO RADIO* Tiger Shark 2 this is Task Force Charlie. Do you Read? Over. Skirting in and out of maritime radar patrols in Grid E4, Littoral Class Ship Call sign TIger Shark 2 secretly made its way down the river nearing the unpatrolled entrance to the Basin. *RADIO* TF Charlie, this is Tiger Shark 2. Go Ahead* Chief Jones: We have been engaged from a hardened target incurring several casualties. Target ID is EF365K. Requesting Immediate Support. *RADIO* Uh Roger Charlie. We are currently blasting shoreline targets with the guns. Standby for override and Cruise missile launch. The Chief plotted a fire mission for them calling in precisely where the Anti Tank gun was located. *RADIO* Chief, Missile is Away. ETA 1 minute. Get your heads down, it's gonna be a big one. With a deafening roar, the missile from the ship came screaming across the sky and slammed directly into the fort blasting a hole the size of a car in it. The explosion sucked the oxygen out of the air for a short second. The team was quickly on their feet making their way to the bunker to start clearing the facility.
  20. The heroes of the Crescent Union slowly assemble at the palace of the Ji Pei where they are greeted by Jun and his mother. "What a fine selection of expertise we have before us." "Indeed mother, some of the very best of the Union. Heroes, I know that a good majority of you did not agree with my position as it regards this undertaking, but I am thankful for your offer to assist and to follow the will of our community. Hopefully you will indeed discover as I have the great opportunity that lies in Xu for the excellent people of this city." "It is certainly more than some would think they deserve." "Let us get on to the details. While we have confirmation from the rulers in Xu that the land is ours to use, we still must ensure that the way between here and there is safe for the transportation of the settlers. Master Legonardo and the Tritech Corporation are seeing to the construction of new airships for the means of transportation however, because of their size they will not be able to reach the altitude of some of Vincent's more advanced dirigibles." At this point the famous inventor's assistant enters the room. "What he means to say, is with the possibility of hundreds of people on board we can't risk keeping them all up thousands of feet above the ground. We need to plot a course to Xu that is quick and relatively safe." "Ah, Dr. Gioconda, right on time. Indeed, now looking at a map of Olegaia, we've charted the best route is over Pyr, through the Strait of Seirenes, past the southern border of Babeleth, across the Jade Sea and straight on to Xu." "There's a colony of Sirens in that strait that we're going to need to deal with and then we're going to need to build a refueling station in either Salamanda or Babeleth." "I'll leave that to you heroes to sort out. Once you're in Xu, make sure that the settlement is secure and hasn't been over-run by monsters or anything." "We'll be taking the Destiny's Bounty, is there anything you heroes need before we depart?"

  21. Tragedy Before Destruction MAP NAME: STUDICA GRID: F3 The Devils Highway is a long winding patch of land that makes a perfect clearing through the jungles and canyons of southern Filace straight into Briolui. Through History and Time, this natural earthen roadway developed quite the folklore among locals. It is said that the road was carved by the devil himself to draw the war machines into hell and create a path for the unworthy to get away from it. Great Brick War by Jesse Beeze, on Flickr Tonight proves to be like any other night as the military heads off to war and the bystanders try to get away from it. Hour by Hour Heavy Vehicles.... Great Brick War by Jesse Beeze, on Flickr Soldiers...... Great Brick War by Jesse Beeze, on Flickr and the innocent..... Great Brick War by Jesse Beeze, on Flickr pass each other on the down slope to war. Tanks pound the ground... Great Brick War by Jesse Beeze, on Flickr and mortars rip through the sky.... Great Brick War by Jesse Beeze, on Flickr as the willingly damned pass by those looking to be saved. Great Brick War by Jesse Beeze, on Flickr
  22. Living Like a King Map Name: Studica Grid: F2 Rick Robbins: High above Metropolis, the President of Filace resides in his penthouse on the 105th floor of his building which looks suited for a King. Our network was granted an exclusive sit down with the president during the media black out to discuss his the situation in the world and to try and understand how a man like this makes his decisions. The President: Welcome to my home Rick. Rick Robbins: Thank you for having us sir. This is truly a marvelous place you have here. Fit for a King if I say so. I'm in awe of the gold floors. The President: Thank you Rick. It's tremendous. I had it built by the best builders in the country. Let me show you around. The President: This here is the banner from the World Unity Fair that I was honored to chair for some time. These festivals are tremendous. Huge turn outs. Really great people. Rick Robbins: I hear we won't be having one this year, its truly unfortunate. Do you think we could use a little unity in a time like this? The President: I do. I will tell you this, we have great unity right now in our country and with our allies. Nobody wants what's going on right now. It's absurd frankly. Rick Robbins: I like what you have here on the wall. These old recruiting posters from way back. What do these mean to you? The President: It means a lot to me frankly. I think there is always more work to be done, no matter what point in life you are at. I gave up a comfortable life to be President. I have a great company and employ thousands of people. I could have very easily stuck to that life but work needed to be done. Our country is in big trouble. We've been getting pushed around for too long. Rick Robbins: Do you believe that to be the reason we've seen such provocation from Briolui and Toohati as of late? The President: Sure, they've been getting away with murder, literally, for so long now. They don't realize that the days of Filace laying down and taking it are over. Nobody wants bloodshed. It's horrible. The worst decision you have to make as a President is to send your men and women to war. But we cannot allow these practices any longer. **Loud Blaring Beeping Rings out from the Panel on the Wall** Rick Robbins: What in the world is that? The President: Stay calm Rick. That's my intercom from the security office on the first floor. *Touching the Panel* This is the President. **Sir we have a breach. We believe two intruders slipped passed security and are on their way up. Can you shelter in place until security arrives?** The President: Send your team up, we'll switch to the secure radio and follow protocol. Rick, take the pictures off the wall there. Rick Robbins: Mr. President, what should I do? The President: *Turning on the hand held secure radio he pulled from the wall* Comm Check, this is the President. **We have you sir.** The President: Rick, help me move the flag structure here. Rick Robbins: Sir what if your security doesn't make it in time? The President: They will Rick. If they don't we're prepared for that as well. Rick Robbins: Mr President! I'm no.... The President: Take the gun. My safe room is right across the hall. We'll be fine. Rick Robbins: The crew had to stop filming at that point and leave the equipment behind so we could fit in the safe room. We made it there with no trouble while the President watched over us until security arrived. The intruders were apprehended, we have no information on them at this time. I thanked the President for his hospitality and he vowed to reschedule with us to continue our discussion in the future.

  24. FRAGO #001- Off Roading MAP NAME: STUDICA GRID: F3 - G3 Captain Beeze and his crew were pulled off of their checkpoint duty to investigate a nearby anomaly. With the recent news breaking on the missing drones from Spriznulo, multiple nations have organized searches and Filace is no different. Being a COAC Ally of Spriznulo is one thing and they will get the drone returned to them if we find it, but command is expecting a detailed study and analysis of the drone before it is returned. The team was relieved to be doing something instead of standing around waiting for the war to come to them. Command had received reports of a radar anomaly in the area and figured the team was close enough with their mobile radar site to check it out. Once they found a good elevation, they settled in and deployed small UAV, a comm relay, and turned on their radar site. The team sat until dusk when they finally got a hit. They packed up their gear. ] And headed out on their way vowing to return for the radar site.
  25. The Darker Side of Life Map Name: Studica Grid: H3 Throughout northern Briolui, scattered oil derricks and pump stations litter the arid lands providing the country with the fuel it needs to carry on. Jack: What do you make of all this? Chris: What, you mean us being here? Jack: Yeah, what do you think of our assignment. Chris: Well I'm bored sir. I'd prefer to be headed off to the front if I'm being honest. Jack: I got news for you kid, you're on the front lines. Any day now tanks might come rolling across the plains over there, or planes might come over the mountains. Keep your head on a swivel. Chris: Is this a delivery coming in? Jack: Yeah. He's here all the time hauling huge crates with his tiny tractor. Jack: Good Evening Abjan. Abjan: Good Evening my friends. Jack: A little late for a shipment tonight, no? Abjan: I don't ask these questions. With a war coming it, only makes sense that oil production will increase. They call me to drive you barrels, so I drive them. Jack: Okay, bring em in. Chris: *Whispering* You're not gonna check the truck first? Jack: No, we checked his truck for months. All it did was slow down production and waste our time. Besides, old Abjan is nothing to worry about. He's a relic of an old tribe who used to live up here in the North. For a long time they had a lot of influence in the area until they got cozy with some rebels. His family was killed years ago in a raid by our forces into his village looking for rebels. They were caught in the crossfire. I feel bad for him really. His business was ruined, he used to have one of the largest farms in the village. The old man barely scrapes by and lives alone to himself. Abjan: Hello George. George: Abjan. What are you doing here so late. Abjan: I don't ask these questions. They send me to deliver barrels, so I deliver them. George: I understand but, we just got them this morning. We don't even have anywhere to put them. George: I'm gonna go call this in and see why they sent you. Abjan: Do not make me use this George. I don't want to, but I will. If you stay out of our way, you won't get hurt. George: "Our" way? Abjan: We are here to take back what is ours. Abjan: For too long our people have stood by having our lands taken out from under us and our families killed by your government. We have laid down for too long and now with the support of your enemies, we finally have an opportunity to stand. Abjan: My men are redirecting your pump station to send the oil down the old pipeline which runs under our village. I have trucks coming to lock this station down. George: Just kill me now. Don't draw this out. Abjan: George, my friend. We are not going to kill you. You are one of the few with a brain, like Jack. You show respect to our people and know that your just our guests. No you are being spared to send a message to your government that we are through being walked on. They are going to be so tied down in their war, they won't have time to fight us too. MEANWHILE Jack: Something is wrong here. Chris: Huh? Jack: He's never here this long. I'm going to see why George isn't answering his radio. Abjan: GO! GO! Don't let them over here. Stop them! Jack: What the......
