Military-Builder Challenges
 Group admin 
Once a month from now until forever, all players have the option to build one "MBC," an entry which involves a new feature for the military power of their faction. This can be a watchtower, a regiment, a ship, a supply train or another sort of military personnel, equipment or property (castles, super-weapons and superhuman soldiers are NOT par for the course). There are no monthly winners of these challenges, but the following scale gives players an opportunity to be rewarded for skill rather than speed alone:

0 points - Fig-on-a-plate or comparable quick and cheap design.
2 points - Average LOM build. Clunky and not very elegant.
3 points - Above average. Has some flaws or tries new techniques without quite pulling them off perfectly.
4 points - An aesthetically clean build that shows a respectable level of skill, detail and technique mastery. While not a masterpiece, it is probably one of the best LOM builds of the month.
5 points - Rare. An exceptional build that is probably /the/ best of a good month.
6 points - Very rare. Most likely a several-month project with many high-level techniques and a good aesthetic as well.

Any staff member can judge MBCs. As a general rule, the first staff comment counts as the score, but anyone may appeal for a re-assessment of any given MBC.

Quick review of the rules:
- Put "MBC" or "Military Builder Challenge" into your title so that we know to score your build
- One MBC per player per month
- Try not to make overpowered entries
- Still no gunpowder
- The admins dish out what points they see fit - if you want to appeal, come complain here.

It helps your faction through pride, posturing and points for the leaderboard... so it's really an ego challenge for the faction, a source of points and a challenge for you and a contribution to the depth to the Lands as a whole. Also, yes, you may do one of these every month.

What would be an overpowered entry and what is meant by that?

We're trying to keep some sanity - these entries are supposed to be regular parts of each faction's military power, not some crazy weapon of mass destruction or a fantasy version of a modern weapon. Examples of overpowered entries:

This is the Outlaw's secret weapon: The Mega Deathbolt. It shoots fireballs over a mile away, each of which is capable of destroying an entire battalion. None shall stand against it!

This watchtower might not look impressive, but inside is a mechanized crossbow that can shoot a hundred bolts a minute, mowing down anyone foolish enough to attack Mythron!

This is a dragon from the Castle series, trained to fly for Enalica. Its armor and scales are impenetrable, and it has destroyed hundreds of ships in its time.

These black-clad troops are Rainosian elites. Each of them knows fifty ways of killing people, and that's only with their pinky fingers. They have been specially programmed as part of a military experiment and have superhuman strength, intelligence and reflexes.

This craft is a heavily-armored Nerogueian attack vehicle. It is powered by a troll on a treadmill and can cross almost any terrain on its massive wheels. On top is a rotating turret that can launch Enalican fire a hundred yards in any direction.

Well, you don't necessarily need size to make a good MOC - the four point MBCs (excluding Prof B's) weren't very big, especially mine and Gilbert's. It's more quality that matters - take your time on each section, spend some time revising until you're completely satisfied, and only build as big as you can - if you find that you're stretching your collection or running out of time, try a smaller MOC.

6, but 5 and 6 can only be awarded after the approval of a majority of the staff

The fatal flaw in the legitimacy of this data is that four was the cap until your latest MBC was posted.

Oh, and for the record, they all agreed to change it before I posted the build

What can I build for an MBC that would also fit into catagory 16 of the MOCathlon? http://www.mocpages.com/group_conversation.php?id=24931&topicid=100463 I assume it is for making a natural environment and nothing man-made,and I anticipate the build I am making getting at least a 3 on the MBC scale.

Waterfall? Beautiful forest? A microscale mountain? Make a sweet custom military unit for LOM, throw them on, and that should qualify as a MBC.

Word of advice for everyone- don't anticipate. Be pumped when you get a good score, but don't plan on a certain number ;)

Honestly man, the MA comes once a year. Build for that, make it fit LOM second. We're pretty lenient about what qualifies.

I'd think this would go without saying, but a MBC must be relevant to the challenge. (ie a military feature for your faction) They don't have to be traditional features of a faction's military power (ie a tower or something), but they should be related. This can be done in the story - explaining, for instance, that a building is being used as a prison for your faction might work if you focus on that relation a bit. When in doubt, keep this in mind - the less it looks like a MBC, the more in-story relation you'll have to do.

A motte-and-bailey fort or castle would count. No, they're not cutting-edge, but any given MBC is "new" in the sense that it's a new creation that adds details and information that weren't part of the LOM story before.
