Getting Started

- Do I have to post to participate?
Easy answer: No. Anyone can hang out and chat, although building and posting are the meat of the game.

- What are points and where do they come from?
Every time a player posts an LOM build, it is worth points. The only exceptions are when the build is in violation of one of the LOM's rules - for example, if it's a completely irrelevant build that someone posted to get some likes from the LOM group, if it has already been used as an LOM build, or if it is too basic to count (i.e., someone stuck a minifigure on a plate with a small number of other bricks). This is the scoring table for builds:
...Character Intro - 5 points
...Freebuild - 2 points
...Monthly Challenge - 5 points
...Rank Challenge - 3 points
...Military-Builder Challenge - Variable (rated by a staff member)
Sometimes there will be other types of builds that are worth different amounts of points. Keep your eye out for them when they are announced in the main group, but you don't have to worry about them otherwise. Finally, once you have points, they are usually yours to keep - unless you specifically choose to delete your builds and start over or decide to switch factions after earning over a hundred points, they can never be traded or taken away.

- What is a character intro?
Every member of the LOM starts out by posting a character introduction that is worth five points. This can be a picture of your main character with no more text than your character's name and faction, or it can be a detailed story accompanying an elaborate that acts as a prologue for your adventures in the Lands of Mythron. You can always change characters later, but only one build counts as your character intro.

- What are freebuilds?
A freebuild is a typical post for the LOM that is worth two points. After making your scorecard, there are often challenges to participate, but, when you have already finished all of the available challenges at a given time or just don't want to build for one, you can post a new creation as a freebuild. There is a semi-arbitrary limit of 5 freebuilds per month so that builders are encouraged to take at least a little time and prevent people from farming points too much, but most people never hit this cap.

- What are challenges?
A challenge is any build other than a character intro, scorecard or freebuild. The main types of challenges are Monthly Challenges, Rank Challenges and Military-Builder Challenges, although the staff regularly experiments with others. All challenges, however, include a prompt and reward players with more points than regular freebuilds.
...Monthly Challenges - Every month, there is a five-point challenge that the whole group can compete in at once, either a Universal Challenge (or UC) that advances the plot of the group as a whole or a Regional Challenge (or RC) that gives players a prompt to include in their personal storylines. Players may submit one entry per month, and, at the end of the month, the staff will judge all of the entries and award extra points to one or more winners.
...Rank Challenges - Some of the Rank Challenges are under revision as of April 2015, but until further notice the old system will be used. Rank challenges are different for each faction (go to your faction group to see yours!) and are worth three points each. Like most challenges, they have fairly-flexible prompts associated with them, but in most cases you have to earn a certain number of points before you are allowed to complete a given rank challenge (note: these points are not consumed). You cannot repeat a rank challenge more than once, and you generally earn your rank as soon as you post your challenge entry.
...Military-Builder Challenges - Every player may submit one build per month as a military-builder challenge, or MBC. Unlike other builds, MBCs do not have a default point value associated with them - when posted, they are reviewed by the staff and assigned points based on their quality. This is a good way to get extra points or feedback.

- What is a scorecard?
All players keep track of their own points on one of their LOM posts, often at the end of their character intros or attached to a freebuild. To make a scorecard, list all of your LOM posts in a format like this with a points total at the top or bottom:
<a href="http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/395135">Title of Build</a> | n points
As a bonus, when you first create your scorecard, you get two points in addition to points for whatever build you attached it to.

- What are ranks?
Ranks give abilities that are withheld from normal players, such as starting a guild or claiming islands for one's faction. To earn a rank, you must complete a rank challenge (mentioned higher up in this comment), have the requisite number of points and complete any other tasks which are required.

Characters and Faction Choice

- What sort of character can I play?
The LOM doesn't have classes like some role playing games, so you can pretty much make your character however you want within reason. You can also choose almost any humanoid fantasy race (from halflings to golems) and characters frequently range from untrained, comical farmers-turned-adventurers to wealthy and famous action-movie heroes with magical powers.
Some characters even come from places beyond the usual five factions: there are characters from the caverns deep below the Lands as well as others who have immigrated from mysterious lands overseas. The main guideline is to avoid using superlatives, or descriptions like "best" or "most" - nobody wants to play with someone who claims to be the "best" fighter with the "most" magical power, for example.

- Can I have more than one character?
Side-characters are necessary for storytelling. Although you can do crossovers with other players, where you feature their characters in your story or vice versa, most of the time you need to provide your own companions, enemies, and other people for your character to interact with. You may also have different characters star in their own LOM entries, as long as you choose one of then to be your "main" character.

- Can I have characters from other factions?
You may absolutely have side-characters - friends or enemies - from any faction you want. These can even star in builds of their own, although it might be awkward to complete challenges specific to your faction with only outsiders. However, you should either belong to the same faction as your primary character or have plans for your primary character to convert to your faction.

- Do I have to join a faction?
Yep. Sorry, there's no avoiding that. Still, there's a fair amount of overlap and diversity among and between the factions - you do not have to fit into a stereotype in any way.

- Can I change factions?
Yes. Although players are encouraged to consider carefully before switching once they have started building and not to switch too often, there are no consequences for players switching factions except in the case of senior players: if you have over one hundred points, then you have to lose them or leave them behind with your old faction when you switch.

- Can I be neutral or a pacifist?
You do need to belong to a faction, and your "main" character needs to align more with that faction than against it. However, it is fine if you want a character that dislikes the conflict between factions, or has loyalties to multiple factions. It's also okay to have a character who is opposed to war or violence in general, although certain challenges may force your character to take part in conflicts in a nonviolent way.

- Can I make a new faction?
To break the news gently... no, you can't. Factions are very, very big deals - the balance between them is carefully cultivated and integral to the entire game. On the positive side, this isn't to say that your character can't be part of an organization or group that only loosely fits with any of the factions: there are Rainosian players with their own private tribes and armies, a Mythronian who introduced a Ranger Corps, an Enalican who leads a Mythron-based order called the White Lotus, and a Nerogue with an interfactional spy network. While no one player can expect to create something on the scale of a faction, you can ask around and see what you can get away with.

General Rules

- Is there a building limit?
To encourage people to slow down and focus on quality over quantity, there is a freebuild and MOC-off limit of five per month. Challenges do not count toward this limit, but they do have their own restrictions: most, like UCs, RCs, rank challenges or quest missions, can only be entered once each, and MBCs can be submitted once per month.

- Can I use LDD or other drafting software?
Yes. Although not many current LOM members build their entries digitally, it is allowed for all types of builds, including challenges.

- Can I use Custom or 3rd Party Elements?
Yes. The use of custom and 3rd party elements (meaning parts that you made yourself or parts that were made by groups like BrickArms to be compatible with Lego bricks) is permitted, and is in fact quite common. There is also nothing stopping you from using elements from companies like MEGABLOX or Kre-o, though such choices are condemned as heresy by many in the community.

- Why didn't I get points for my entry?
The LOM is meant for builders of all ages and a wide range of skill levels, but there are certain minimum standards we enforce before allowing a post to count for points. Minifigures posted without any surroundings - even extremely well-made custom ones - are not worth any points, nor do simple constructions like plates or large-ish bricks with a few basic details attached count as "surroundings". In some cases, the staff may also hold certain players to higher standards if they suspect that the player is posting quick builds to farm points.

- Why was my MOC removed from the group?
The staff remove posts that seem to have nothing to do with the LOM (random castle or fantasy MOCs), or are supposed to be set in the LOM but break rules about the setting (such as MOCs set in the future or in uncharted lands not open for exploration, or that use technology forbidden in the LOM). Offensive, discriminatory, or otherwise inappropriate posts may also be removed. Admins may remove posts by accident or misread part of the post, so please ask if you don't know why it happened to you!

- Do I have to take orders from faction leaders?
Faction leaders give recommendations about what to build or what to do with your story (for example, saying that the faction needs people to defend certain locations in a UC) but these requests can be declined. If your story is clearly conflicting with the core principles of your faction, though (for example, a Mythronian player plotting to bring down the king), then you may be asked to change your course or choose another faction. Beyond that, faction leaders and other staff members have absolute authority to enforce the regular rules of the group.

- When do I need a Parental Guidance warning?
In the LOM, scenes of minifigure "gore" and violence do not require a PG filter. The LOM explicitly deals with carnage and killing, so red bricks used as blood splatters or dangling entrails are par for the course, as are most textual depictions of combat. Poop jokes and toilets, though they may be in poor taste, are also considered okay. We draw the line somewhere around nudity, swear words, reproduction, and perhaps intense scenes of suffering accompanied by vivid and horrific writing. Discriminatory or hateful posts will not be tolerated at all, and will be reported to the actual MOCpages staff immediately.

Ranks

- Do I lose points when I rank up?
No. Not including the Adventurer rank, you need 25 points for each rank you have. You need 25 points for one rank, 50 points for two ranks, 75 points for three ranks, and so on. These points are not subtracted from your score.

- Where can I find the rank challenges?
Each faction has a set of challenges for its members in its faction group. Links to the faction groups can be found on the LOM homepage. If you are not part of your faction group, ask your faction leader to let you in in the General Conversation.

Etiquette

- Understanding the LOM
The LOM is about communal building and storytelling. This means that players are writing the history of the world as much as coming up with adventures for their own characters, and can accordingly make up details about the setting from villages and small towns to bands of raiders coming to destroy them. At a higher level, the staff bind the players' stories and creations into a single world by coming up with world events and establishing a few facts that are true for all players (e.g., there are tunnels and caverns that run beneath the entire LOM; gunpowder does not exist in any way, shape, or form; etc.).

- How to tell stories in a shared world
The number one rule of the LOM is to tell your story in such a way that it wouldn't prevent other players from telling their stories. For example, there are plenty of inns or bands of orcs in the LOM, so it doesn't matter if you destroy an entire swath of inns because other players can always invent more to visit or destroy. However, gunpowder technology does not exist in the LOM, so, if your character invents that, that changes the world for everyone. Be daring, but make sure to respect other players' freedom to work with the world in the same way.
At the same time, the LOM is a social group, so try to reach out to and interact with other players. Your character is being chased by an secret organization and your faction-mate controls a team of investigators? Why not team up to work against the organization and bring it down together? If long-term partnerships aren't your thing, have your characters cross paths with each other for just a short while and go on your way... or even revisit or reference a location that another player built first, etching it more strongly onto the map. The more players reinforce each other's stories, the more cohesive the LOM becomes and the more fun everyone has in the process.

- How to ask for favors/feedback/crossovers
The key to seeking any kind of help is to be polite, state what you're asking for, make it as easy as possible for people to help you, and say "thanks" at the end. On MOCpages and in the LOM, there are a few more rules of etiquette.
...In the LOM, it's best to make requests in the general conversation thread or in an existing thread designed specifically for that sort of request. If you're advertising for another group, it's okay but typically polite to apologize for using the convo as a billboard for something not related to the LOM. If you're advertising for a new fantasy role-playing group that occupies the same niche as the LOM, it's best not to bring it up in an LOM group at all unless someone else asks.
...Include a URL if you have one. People are much more likely to help if the path is right there for them!
...Wait at least 24 hours (and up to three days) before bumping your request. MOCpages isn't a live chat, so expect the response time to be poor.
...Don't feel bad (or get angry) if a request, even once you have bumped it, is ignored. It's probably not your fault or anyone else's. Either the request was buried by other activity, or people weren't sure how to respond and assumed that someone else would. At this point, try taking your search to your faction group, a staff member, or another LOM member you respect, and also ask if you could have done anything to make your request easier for others to respond to. There could easily be some difference of understanding holding up communications that another member could help you work through outside of the general convo.
...When trying to contact a specific player, it is okay to reach them by commenting on one of their builds. There is a right way to do this, though. Here is an example of the wrong way:
Quoting ~ Newbie
Cool! Nice landscaping. Can you check out my latest build?
http://www.moc-pages.com/moc.php/379146

And the right way:
Quoting Miss_Manners :D
Great MOC! I really respect your work, and I would appreciate it if you could give me a critique on my own at some point. My latest is here: http://www.moc-pages.com/moc.php/379146 Thanks!

For a crossover:
Quoting Miss_Manners :D
Hi! I noticed that [name of other person's character] is heading into the same area as mine, and I was wondering if you'd like to do a crossover?

Note that one of the "nice" comments fawns over the other person's entry for a while, and the other doesn't really address it. If you're commenting on a creation that has been posted recently, it's respectful to give some feedback before bringing up your own business. On an older entry, this is less important, but definitely include some explanation of why you have chosen this particular player to ask for help.

- How to set up a MOC-off
We have a designated thread for that request, at least!

Asad makes a good point, in that most of the Dragon sigils have already been identified with Rainos. However, if you want to use them for your character in Nerogue, you're allowed to. Maybe your character even came to Nerogue from Rainos!

So, once I pick a faction (I'm thinking Mythron), I build a character intro MOC, and then what happens after that?

Welcome! After that, you can buidl more freebuilds to tell your character's story, or you can compete in our monthly UC contests to integrate your story with the overall LOM story. Besides that, there are lots of other ways to get involved, but those are the basics :)

You should stay in a medieval time period, with technology (swords, armor, catapults, etc) appropriate for the era. So no robots ;)

We draw the line at gunpowder - this is mostly medieval, with some Renaissance tech like fancy plate armor and cool fortifications. However, we do have a couple people whose characters have magical/mechanical arms, so there is some wiggle room to embelish on the fantasy setting. If you want a setting where robots and the like are common, though, you might want to check out The Insurgency, the other major role-playing group on MOCpages.

So.. yes !??!?!

(this may be spoilers) He later finds out that a wizard was attempting to telleport between vast distances (and somehow manged to put the portals in different time lines AND summoned them very far away). The only thing he has with him are the hands he was putting away,a box,and himself.

Could you maybe make him less of a robot and more of a minifigure with robotic hands? Also, building visibly medieval scenes (villagers, buildings, etc), would help a lot.

I think that the staff may need to discuss this. We'll get back to you in a few days.

I think the important thing to remember is how much Free would be opposed to this, and I think that is reason enough to not let it happen.

Remember his reasoning for not letting Centaurs in LoM? Well the same goes for robots. Do we really want this well constructed fantasy world defaced by 11 year olds with big spaceships (no offense TNC, you seem pretty great so far, I was just referring to the inevitable wave of LoM users who would follow your example) ? We /should not/ ever let robots, spaceships, laser guns, or anything else inside LoM. We have nothing to gain, and everything to lose.

Time travel's a stretch, but you could probably come up with a semi-magical explanation for where your character came from.
So.. yes !??!?! I can kinda summarize what i had in mind:My sigfig (Alpha) is taking a pair of Hands (robotic) to a shelf when a (magical) portal forms 3 or so inches in front of him, he walks right into it before he can processes what has happened. and he exits in a empty field with a farmhouse in the distance. (this may be spoilers) He later finds out that a wizard was attempting to telleport between vast distances (and somehow manged to put the portals in different time lines AND summoned them very far away). The only thing he has with him are the hands he was putting away,a box,and himself.
Could you maybe make him less of a robot and more of a minifigure with robotic hands? Also, building visibly medieval scenes (villagers, buildings, etc), would help a lot.
Ok, so after some thinking... If the whole robot thing dose not fly; could he be a magical entity who inhabits a suit of armor.. (then i can use the fig)(and that would fit more into the time period)(and i would not have to change the intro much)


Edit: that would get rid of the time travel to btw

Edit: i would use the same restrictions no magical objects, crazy powers,messing up the game...

It's where MOCpages' extremely sensitive comment filtering decides your comment needs to be approved by an admin/mod. The space between it being filtered and being released is comment jail.

I am willing to (within a fair boundary) change up the race,origin,powers,ability's,and so forth of alph (i really just want to keep the fig not much else matters).

Well, the fig is kinda the most offending part of this deal. A minifig with cyborg hands would be a lot more acceptable than a 9-foot-tall robot. The staff will discuss, but don't get your hopes up.

Have you looked at The Insurgency, at all? Your robot would be perfect for that group.

I have looked at the insurgency but the community here just seems more.."cool", this is for the staff: is there any way i can bring the Alph figure into the story line so he is less obtrusive? Most of my minifigs are quite old (or bad batches) because they are cracking .so i am trying to stay away from using them to much. if this is gonna be a big pain just say and ill use a minifig (id rather not but i hate to cause a problem)

edit; by the way alph stands at just below 3 inches (so you know his height)
edit: So you can forget about him being a robot. i know thats not gunna work out.
Edit: i will now wait for the staff to make a decision.

Haha, yeah, this community is pretty cool, you know, when we all get along mostly. ;) But the funny thing is, the Insurgency was actually created by three LOM members, including Thomas here. :P So it's kind of like a sister role-playing game to the Lands of Mythron, only for people who like sci-fi. I joined it at first, like many LOM members at the time, but I sort of died out along with them. I guess trying to build for two different RPGs is really not worth the trouble. :P

Okay, I need an admin to lock this thread (or maybe someone could just make me admin again and I could do it : ) ). We have a different thread for asking general questions.
