Introduction and previews to my Planeshift Lego Theme
About this creation
Planeshift is a free Online Roleplay Game, made by amateur programers and designers. So, there are currently many bugs and it isn't as good as comercial Ones. But its original fantasy world "Yliakum" with all his special races and places was interesting enough for me to create some fanarts with LEGO. So, let me tell you something about the contents of this fictious LEGO Theme:
Yliakum is a giant Stalactite, so the whole world is set underearth. The light and life was created by a giant crystal hanging on the roof called "azure sun". 8 levels exist between the cliffs of the world where the people live. Excluded the Kran and Lemurs, all other races came through magic portals in this world and settled here for the last 7 centuries.
You will find normal cultures like Ylians(humans), Stonebreaker/Hammerwielder Clans (Dwarves) or Dermorians(normal elves)but although special Ones like the stone humanoid Kran, feline Enkidukai, demon-like red skinned Diaboli, Ynnwn(Diaboli/Elves Hybrid), Klyros (winged reptile-like race) and many more making a multicultural wolrd. Finally we have 12 playable cultures in game and many additional semi-intelligent races like Tloke, Gobbles or Derghir and of course dangerous creatures. Their cultures are all medieval but with a modern society, althought the government consists of an aristocratic kind of parlament with no real democracy called octarchy.
The main gods are Talad and Laanx, who created the Kran and Lemurs and the inner world of the stalactite. Dakkru is the godess of the Death Realm, the Black Flame a forbidden dark god, while Xiosia is the old elvish godess. Someday other gods will be implemented.
Yliakum is devided in 8 levels, the first playable yet, with the main cities Hydlaa, Ojaveda and Gugrontid. Ways between these platforms are giant Winches, long Paths or with flying creatures. Over and next to Yliakum the Stone Labyrinths exist, where many hordes of evil monsters await their invasion of Yliakum, so the big stony entraces of the first level of Yliakum are guarded by different fortresses called Bronze Doors. Other menaces are the Onyx Dagger(criminal organisation with many rouges)and the Dark Circle(black mages serving the Black flame)More information:
The LEGO Sets concentrates on showing the important figures and monsters from the game, but also some fictious ideas fitting in the world. You can see previews of different series here:
Series 1 (Begin 2008) are my first "boxes" i ever made so my graphic skills were bad and so my sets looked.
Series 2 (Summer 2008)used improved graphic works and some interesting sets about creatures of Yliakum. There i introduced the Legoversion of the famous Ulbernaut and also other famous creatures in smaller creature'n'guy - sets
Series 3 (2009) will be the professional looking Lego Planeshift works. First time i used decals to make the minifigures more real and to introduce the more exotic races. Topics will be more buildings in Kran, Ylian and Enkidukai architecture. There will be also the first building copied directly from the game.

Very cool. I've tried to play Planeshift numerous times on my mac, but the install always fails for me. Oh well. Are you still planning on continuing this series?
Actually not. There's a new (more bugged)version of the game out now and so some new stuff but i stopped playing this summer because my guild lost its activity. Not sure when i'll give it another try. For the moment i need a break.
