SOCCER! Best sport in the world :) it's more or less about a guy who travels through time and sees some epic things and saves people and planets and stuff.

About 2nd, 3rd, and 4th prizes in the Tourney. If you want, I could wire you like 20 bucks for those prizes. 2nd place could be Forest Ambush, 3rd place could be two mini fig packs, and 4th place could be one minifig pack.

Sorry to burst your bubble...but no one is really "sane." If society deemed it so...one could walk around with underwear on their head and get no comments. What we consider as normal is just society's mass opinion. Our thoughts of who we are can also come from family, such as how my sister considers me a geek. Which by definition is a person that is unfashionable and socially inept. So saying I'm a geek is actually not offensive....although society's mass would consider it name calling. I can say proudly that I took a Nerd Quiz...and test like 76% positive! Something I'm rathe proud of, because the definition of nerd is someone who is studious. It's sad the way that if someone plays with LEGO they are considered a nerd, as one could play with it and be quite popular. So before you say that you're sane...evaluate how greatly your opinion has been formed on society's view.

Sorry for ranting:P

Be kind whenever we can, play along with him as far as we possibly can, and just let him keep going along. Unlike most of the new members that have become problems, he's not trying to change anything about the group, just to put his own rainbow warrior- spin on it. And when he clogs up our convo threads with bolded spam, we can just start new ones :)

Uhhh....no. Freeling has to give the okay on this one, not us. It was his idea to begin with and it's supposed to start with him. If you do yours things will be unclear and people would start doing more crazy things with the black lotus even though the black lotus they all know are all fake clubs set up by the real black lotus to distract from the main one-time ultimate plan to assassinate the king. If they fail, then they are as good as dead because the royalty would all e on extra high alert preventing future attempts. No way. Freeling starts this whole thing and sets the tone as to explain that the LOM admins will be revealed through the collaborative-like story builds of the admins.

Sorry for the long post, but it's gotta be Freeling and this can't mess up. It's not your fault or anything.

Uhhh....no.

Alright, so this is Freeling's show, not mine. I understand where you're coming from, but I now have exactly two days, both schooldays, to patch my story.

*Story Update* My character has just followed the magician through a portal. This is where the posted story is at now. I have, built and photographed, my characters arriving in a sewer and fighting Coriolanus. Also, Ryan Kayton has sent his Troytonians to Carthal to help defeat the magician, as a collab which we've been planning for the past ten days. Also built and photographed is my Tourney intro, in which I come out of the sewer after my victory and am invited to join the Crimson Knights because of the fighting skills I just exhibited.

You're worried that people will make the BL do "more crazy things." What about the October UC that was entirely focused on the BL doing "crazy things?" I've seen BL vampires, BL ninjas, and even a BL Kaiju by Mr. Falcon Punch.

"If the BL magician fails, then the BL will be on extra high alert." Nobody in the royal family except the traitorous prince will ever know that anything happened, because the bomb will have been defused and they'll never believe their Troytonian and Enalican enemies' story of an assassination plot.

If this story doesn't work for Freeling, I need a totally new story for my character. If you can think of another reason why Coriolanus would go to Carthal in his portal instead of to a BL hideout or such-like, I'd like to hear it. Don't take this as being obnoxious; I'm just trying to work out my story to your and everyone's satisfaction.

The BL is still working to temporarily destabilize Mythron. Literally, they are a terrorist organization working to provide a cover for the actual transition between kings. It's not in-fighting in the Mythronian government, they hint, it's an alien force trying to end civilization. Feel free to stage a bomb scare - in fact, it would be just as good if you actually let Coriolanus detonate it to grab the faction's attention. People have been forgetting about the old BL.

We don't actually. We are just picking out different details about them from what we discussed over a couple of weeks. It's all consolidated of who they are, what they want, when they will do their deed, and how it will get done as well as what will happen after the fact in the first comment in the thread, Black Lotus Final Drafts.

The one thing we really don't know is where the king will be assassinated. But it doesn't really matter because Freeling starts this and he will decide it in his MOC - the rest will fall into place once he posts his MOC.

Think of it this way:

Dwarfs are thick, muscular, tempered (at times), powerful, loud kind of slow, and tough.

Halflings/Ilbren are small, speedy, agile, cunning, quiet, weak, and sneaky.

I personally think this could add a lot. I know I certainly would featuring them.

Alright guys, here's something that I just got.

As I believe Brick has already told you, Mythron is in a bad situation right now. We're doing bad in the story, which leads to nobody wanting to join. And no new members means that, even though our members are generally very dedicated (second most points per person of all the factions), we don't have enough quantity to do well in UCs and do better in the story.

Here's my proposed solution:

The outlaws faction is very popular since members of it don't have to be part of a faction, really- they can work alone. However, even though the outlaws have so much freedom, they all work against Mythron, generally. Which means that right now there's three factions against Mythron (Rainos, Enalica, and Outlaws) and only one supporting Mythron (Nerogue). I think that LOM needs a new faction for Mythron's side of the war. My proposed faction is basically a good version of the outlaws - a group of nomadic do-gooders that work alone but want to help Mythron in the war.

As you can see, this proposed solution will not only help with the Mythron solution, but it might also help with the excessive number of Outlaws - outlaws that only joined their faction to have freedom may consider joining this new faction.

Thanks for reading/considering,
Halhi

Personally, I see his point...but another faction won't help that much. I think we simply need to reinstate Mythron as one of the lead powers after the king is replaced. Any thoughts on the subject?

Basically, Halhi's suggesting a second Nerogue. We tried that; it helped, but the Outlaws are still massive. I agree with the plan you suggest completely - Mythron and Rainos are meant to be the lead powers, and the upcoming assassination should enforce that. I don't know if anything can be done for Rainos or even if anything should be done, but I still like the plan.

Yep, and a second Nerouge we don't need. Everything should work out smoothly after the king is killed...we get the new king, he fixes the mess, and Mythron get's higher on the scale of power.

Personally, I think your respected enough. Especially through Toa infernum's actions...he kills Mythronians in almost everyone of his MOCs.
It's actions like these that give Rainos its respect.

All right, then. I guess I have enough egomaniacal empire-builders in my faction that I don't need any flavoring. Thanks.

Rainos is fine. Mythron is the only one who needs the help.

I agree, Mythron needs help. I have a long post to write, but I'm not up for it tonight. (heh, that rhymes XD)

I'll try to write it sometime this week. This is just to let you know that I'm reading these but just not commenting yet.

To ease the wait, I will tell you that we can build up Mythron after the Black Lotus thing is over with and done. So once The Tourney is over, we can get back to doing the Black Lotus.

There is another possible consideration. Enalica COULD switch. I personally have no desire to, but it is not out of the question. If Mythron is really in as much need as we think, Enalica could turn the tides/even it out. The main problem would be explaining it. What would make the most sense is if Enalica broke off the alliance with Rainos and became independent. That would make things 2v1v1v1.


Another idea:
Nerogue has gained a considerable amount of members. Perhaps there could be some kind of incentive for players to switch to Mythron? That could balance things out.

Maybe we can work this out by giving the Outlaws a definite agenda of their own - a free Bodus or something like that that will unify them as a third power separate from any apparent alliances with Rainos or Enalica. The BL drama is also likely to close any rifts between Mythron and Nerogue when Darvainian's investigation helps to save the king's middle brother.

I agree, not all outlaws are in alliance with Rainos. This way it would basically split the outlaws, and the order of 2v2 would be restored.

I mean 1 on 1 on 1 - Outlaws on Mythron/Nerogue (the Empire?) on Enalica/Rainos (The Raiders?). That works well because each group has about the same level of activity, even if it skews numbers in the favor of your alliance.

The only problem is that the Outlaws only have cities near Mythron and Nergoue. They can't bother Rainos much just because of where they are geographically.

The difference is that I was the one who decided that you would be a good staff member. I ask the other admins before I make a decision like that - Freeling acts. Also, this is by no means a parliamentary republic - that would mean that we would have elections for staff members and the head-of-staff. This is an authoritarian system where the head of staff chooses admins, the admins choose mods and the people go with whatever we say.

Maybe the Black Lotus could do something as an incentive to get some of the Outlaws to move, because the Outlaws know that when the king is assassinated, that the Mythronians or Nerogueians are going to hunt them down at the core, causing some of them to move? I know I became a mod today, but I just thought maybe we could do this, because I know if a king was murdered I would start packing up and leaving, as the king's soldiers would start hunting down who they thought was responsible.

Thank you for your concern (although, Thomas, yours was somewhat ambiguous), but I don't plan to quit. However, I will be entering a new phase in my life in the fall, so I want to make provisions for my faction in case I don't have the time to be an active leader. At the very least, I'll run with a warning about potential time constraints. I believe that democracy not only places responsibility on the people (i.e., it's their fault if the Rainosians elect me and I can't keep up), but also that it gives them power - if they want something to change, they will have the chance to see it happen. The latter is my reason for suggesting group-wide elections sometime this year - give the players some say in who they want as admins, mods or faction-leaders and give anyone who has previously remained beneath the radar a chance to run. Well, that's about all I have to say for now... terrible ending to a speech, I know.

It would be very difficult to replace you, to say the least. But if you feel that you should, then I am not against it. I would prefer not to have elections for Enalica, simply because I am power hungry and would prefer to remain faction leader ;)

It would seem so. Honestly, I am as worried as Brick is. Supposing he does the Mythron thing. It works great, fantastic. Now me and Brick are at the same spot. We both saved out factions. I think what would worry us both at elections would be a fact that I find to be extremely true and also very sad: Most humans think very little with their brains.

The problem is, hardly anyone knows how much work is involved with being a faction leader. Also, I doubt anyone is as active as us who are already here. People would be overjoyed to see the faction group, but then they must keep active while be fully dedicated to their faction and its members.

Also, we can't just have active people be faction leaders. Their building skills need to be high up there because, honestly, many people will join a faction depending on the quality of builds that are shown 1: from the faction leader, and 2: from the faction as a whole.

Sure, it might work for some factions, but it would be up to the current faction leader if he cannot take on the responsibility of the faction he is running. Things will very quickly turn for the worst if faction leaders are elected every so often. A better way is for the current faction leader give guidance as to how to go about choosing a new faction leader. Obviously Brick and Caleb have the following summary for being faction leaders, and thus should not be possibly removed UNLESS they feel that they cannot be active enough to continue in that role. It would then be up to them how to go about choosing a different faction leader for "their" faction.

Summary for faction leaders:
1. Responsible
2. Communicate in English clearly
3. Very active (especially in staff group)
4. High building skills (which all of the current faction leaders have)
5. Highly dedicated to his faction.

Everyone's invited to join the new Band of the Grey Shield. As I mentioned before, it's about binding plot lines in the LOM together rather than competing in the Tourney, so you Gnomes and Knights don't have to feel disloyal or anything.

Should we make a separate thread in the LOM group titled "Spy-Rank" so that when people complete their faction's spy rank, they can post a link to their MOC in that thread and then state which faction they would like to be a spy in so that the whole spy thing doesn't get chaotic but rather organized?

Example scenario that is partly unrealistic:
Say I get the spy rank for Nerogue, I would go to the "Spy Rank" thread and do this:

Quoting David FNJ in imaginary Spy Rank thread
Link to Spy Rank MOC (it was approved by the faction leader of Nerogue)
----this is where the link would go----

For completing the spy rank, I choose to be a spy in Mythron. ~Brick, please invite me to the Mythron group.


What do you guys think? I think it would be a great way to keep the spies coordinated. Of course, the groups should remain as private groups.

It's up to the faction leader to determine when cities are open for claiming and how to go about claiming them as far as I know (at least, that's what I did for Nerogue)

What's the procedure for 5+ fig-on-a-plate/stock photo "mocs" posted to LOM, and then for 15+ pointless comments in the question thread? I spent about a half-hour earlier removing all of them, then posted a polite request in the group to cease and desist, but I was curious if somebody had handled this situation differently before.

For me, it not only feels like Enalica and all its color has disappeared (even Armon and Mr. Falcon Punch are absent), it's also strange to have only five admins around. Come to think of it, Caleb, Thomas and I all think alike on some level. That reminds me - do our personalities dictate the beliefs of our factions, or does it work both ways? I've always liked to play the devil's advocate, but I would have joined Mythron back in the beginning if Rainos hadn't looked underserved. Leading the faction of barbarians has changed me over the past year.

I would say Caleb is a bit civilized for a pirate, and the same goes for you an Rainos. I certainly see the evil required in you, but your too smart to be a ruthless barbarian.

In Caleb's case, he reformed the faction from piracy (which attracted no one) to something no one expected - an island power with a mix of Rainosian and Mythronian systems and a good nature all of its own.

As for Rainos, well, maybe you're right. Should we switch places and see if that fixes it?
