-----Outdated post-----
This is a medieval theme about the Lands of Mythron. You can build locations on the map, and a story of the adventures of your character. In this land there are many things, creatures, dragons, orcs, the list could go on and on! This is a magical place with wizards and mages, (Try to think something like Lord of the Rings, no hobbits though.) Your character can also posses spells to heal himself, or to inflict damage onto others. (Try not to go overboard though.) You will need to decide which Faction you wish to join below.

Mythron - This faction is the most civilized. Their building style mostly features stonework for the castles and nobles' homes. The flag color of Mythron is blue. Official colors for the national soldiers of Mythron are blue and black.

Rainos - Described as a barbarian state by its neighbor, Rainos is a free society with little government. Rainosian warriors do what they want, typically raiding Mythron for fame, fortune, and adventure. They travel alone or in war-bands of any size dressed in any manner, and their buildings are mostly made of wood with occasional rough-cut masonry. The national colors are red and black, but these are only used when the clans unite for all-out war.

Outlaws - These are just outlaws/highwaymen/brigands, wearing whatever clothes they can come by. They don't usually carry flags. (They don't have a specific territory , or race, but their headquarters is located in Bodus to the East.) Official Colors: None.

Enalica - Enalica is the island faction of Mythron. It's main city is Worsan, located south of Mythron. Although Enalica was once a pirate faction, things where changed when a Rainosian moved to Worsan and began to rally the Enalicans to adopt a new strategy: to become raiders.

Nerogue - Nerogueians are the people who come together from all of the other factions. Their official colors are Dark Green, Dark Red, and Black. The style of the builds are a mix between polished Mytrhon and barbaric Rainos. They are free, energetic, and strong - willing to fight alongside their brethren when we see injustice prevailing. They normally ally with Mythron.

But secretly, I work with the Mythrons as a spy.
Preview:My adventure begins while raiding a ship!
-Brick Boy

Please excuse my fickle sigh up.
I need to cancel all previous information.
I will be a spy for Mythron.
I find Mythron a magical place, but I might have to leave soon.
You see, I now realize my greenery levels are very low! :(
So I will post my Avatar MOC, but will have to stay inactive.
On the bright side of all of this, I will so be getting a BIG LEGO Haul soon!:)

I am a dark necromancer outlaw, one who summons the dead. My family was killed by pirates, so I have a strong hatred for them. I live on an airship, pretty much a flying boat, which is crewed by my undead minions. I am a soldier-for-hire type, a mercenary who works for the highest bidder, so I may work for either Mythron or Rainos. When a pirate ship is beneath me on the seas, I rain fire on them from above.

(Let me know if any of that isn't ok)

Thanks!

I caved in! (well, not caved in, but you know, I finally decided to join in on the building)

Faction: Outlaws (for now)
Race: Elf

I decided to put some stuff about me here since the uploader isn't working and that I'd have it when I want to post my intro.

My name is Davainian. Two months ago, I was a top-ranking spy, archer, and diplomat of Mythron. I went out on a long-awaited vacation, during my vacation, the war broke out at the Battle of Unbinding. Now, I am a self-employed spy, archer, and diplomat, with no connections to anyone at the moment. After the King died, it seemed like all the people I knew turned their backs on me.

I knew something was fishy with Bartok, but I couldn't pinpoint what was wrong with him. I really knew something was up when Bartok wouldn't let me come see him when I had an appointment with him that was made 2 weeks prior. I went and told the King and asked him to talk with Bartok. The King took my advice and went to Guaire and spoke with Bartok. When I asked the King how his trip went, he seemed discouraged and upset. He said something about Bartok built a castle somewhere in the center of Rainos for the King. I knew my vacation was coming soon, and asked the King if I should stay for a while longer and help sort things out with Bartok. The King said nothing was going to happen, so he let me go to my vacation. That was the last time I saw him.

When I returned from my vacation 3 weeks later, I found Mythron distraught and confused, and gathered that the Barbarians rebelled against the King, and that the King was no longer alive. I tried to help sort things out, but people started blaming me for leaving, saying I could have prevented something or another. In one week, I traveled to each major city of Mythron trying to gather information, but was met with the same result - the blame game.

I have decided to leave Mythron for a while, maybe for good. I felt - and still feel at this time - rejected for nothing, and I felt that Mythron wasn't handling the situation well. I don't know why the Barbarians attacked. Even I don't agree with some of the laws of Mythron. However, I think Mythron is a the best place to live.

Unfortunately, I was shut away from people's conversations and trust, so I packed my things and left the big cities of Mythron, my home for so many years, and went off into the unknown. Now, I have one goal - find out what happened before the Battle of Unbinding.

EDIT: No one knows I am a spy, and no one knows I was a spy except for the deceased king. It just says it there so that you guys can enjoy it and understand my character more.
Also, I keep to myself.

I think I'm gonna join Mythron, because C'MON PEOPLE! WAY TOO MANY OUTLAWS! I mean, are they really that appealing? The answer is yes, Outlaws are awesome, and I wanted to be one.

But to be fair, I'm going to even the odds for Mythron a bit.

Okay, let me explain as to how we do this. This is a Medieval land. The Land of Mythron. We are at war with the neighboring Island of Rainos. You will need do decide which Faction you wish to join below.

Mythron (A noble and hardy people who would die for their king. Five cities in Mythron. [ Builds in this territory should have the Castley feel to it. Unless you are an outlaw.] There's basically Outlaws everywhere.)

Rainos (A Barbaric people who are at war with the king of Mythron. Two cities in this territory.)

Outlaws, (They don't have a specific territory ,or race, but their headquarters is located in Bodus to the East.

Pirates, (Also no specific territory, or race. Their Headquarters is on the island of Worsan to the East.) (They are a people who sail around and plunder ships, or just do whatever a pirate does.)

...
Please state below which Faction you wish to join.

I want to be a Mythron, but which faction has more of the "medieval" touch to it?

It's all medieval, but if you want the chivalric, knight-and-castle feel of the high Middle Ages, Mythron is the closest match.

Rainos is less technologically developed with few stone structures. Motte-and-bailey castles or town palisades are the primary defensive structures. Rainosian troops are also less likely to have shiny metallic or matching armor.

Nerogue is basically a split-off of Mythron that goes for a more Classical than medieval feel in its architecture, so you will see columns on the buildings. Their troops have no set uniform, only set colors.

Enalica has an indistinct architectural style. Enalicans resemble pirates or Vikings,

The outlaws have no style whatsoever.

Since you have a lot of wood pieces, I would not recommend Mythron. Any other faction can make use of wooden buildings, but Mythronian official buildings are made of stone.

You could do that if you really wanted to, but it would be best if you took a look around and made a decision. The Outlaws are low on active members at the moment, so that might be a good choice, but the defining characteristic should be personality: Would you rather be a lawless and chaotic Outlaw or a Nerogue seeking justice and belonging? Then again, you could go with the relaxed, awesome atmosphere of Rainos... But I'm rather biased.

The choice is yours, of course. I'm glad to have you in the Lands of Mythron whatever faction you choose. Especially if you bring Epic Grandma.

You have to be careful with the dark green, though, because if you use the dark green dragon knights from the Kingdoms line, people will think you are a Rainosian from the Dragon clan (we had dibs on the uniforms before Nerogue even existed).

I'd like to join Mythron! :)

About your questions in the Mythron faction group (yes, I was snooping, Mr. Cab) - We don't let people build major cities because the ones currently located on the map are set as strategic centers for an inter-factional warfare mechanism that will come into play later, but some factions such as Rainos and Nerogue allow you to create towns of respectable size. In addition, we are certainly open to non-purist parts and techniques - although not many of us personally customize our Lego, some do buy parts from third-party stores, and many of us can appreciate the ingenuity required to do customs by hand.

I would hate for you to get the idea that the LOM is completely rule-bound. Although the Mythronians didn't answer this question, we have a number of existing races from orcs to snake-people, and you can always request a new one in this thread (although our founder has a phobia of "Narnia" creatures):

http://www.mocpages.com/group_conversation.php?id=22392&topicid=88444

As for your other concern - the creation of a new badge or emblem - I am sure that most factions would be perfectly happy with that, especially Rainos or the Outlaws. Mythron tends to be the most restrictive of all factions, followed (at present) by Enalica and then Nerogue. Although ~ Brick might be annoyed by this, I invite you to switch to Rainos. We might be billed as barbarians, but I do my best to maximize the powers of my members and cut out as many restrictions as need be to accommodate their personal styles.

Finally, although we are a younger group (both in the age of the group and in our concentration of YFOLs), we are doing our best to live up to the standards set by our models. We have a long way to go before we can rival such orders as the LCC or the GoH, but I hope you stay on and help us reach that distant goal.

You have the "choose a faction" step under control, so the next step is to build a character introduction MOC. Then you can build free builds and challenge entries and interact with the rest of the group as you rank up to earn more power and feud with members of enemy factions. That's more or less it.

A time traveller... Maybe. If you decide to add one, it would be best if the character tried to blend in, didn't visibly use futuristic technology and only implied that he was from the future. Some people get a little funny if someone incorporates so much as a fire cracker. Maybe some of the other admins will have better answers.

Look dude, just because we said you couldn't make things the way you want them doesn't mean it's limiting. In the best interest of the new member, your comment will be deleted.

Did the admins even allow these so called troytanians? It seems to me as though Ryan is making a new sub faction without the admins response.

It's a small clan in Rainos, similar to Shawn Gibson's Outlaw resistance force but louder in the conversation threads. It's far from being a faction or even a guild, and it isn't nearly as big or powerful as other clans of Rainos.

A few months ago, Ryan entered a force called the Romanu clan which he claimed to be more powerful than any of the factions. After people objected, he toned down his claims and renamed it Troytanians. he has since received admin approval, even if it's sometimes tenuous.

A common misconception.... You'll notice that I at least don't feel restricted by a faction like Mythron; there's enough freedom in any faction to basically go wherever you want, do what you want, etc. For instance, my characters have basically ignored the war since they're busy with family issues; in terms of build diversity, I'd actually say that outlaws is probably the least diverse; after all, with 40 outlaws building the same sorts of things, it's hard to do anything new. I'd recommend a smaller faction like Mythron or Enalica where there's not many members so it doesn't feel like you're building the same old thing that everyone else is.

Just a bit of advice :)

The bottom line is, you can do whatever you want wherever you go. They might get angry at you (or recommend you for membership in another faction) if you join Nerogue and you wantonly spread disorder or fail to live up to their high moral standards and, if your character is a Mythronian who is disloyal to their feudal government, then, by definition, you are an Outlaw. This is a big secret that I might get in trouble for advertising, but you don't even have to wear blue or green if you join one of those societies. In any faction you choose, you can lead an army (although some might ask you to gain experience first), you can wander around taking no orders from anyone and ignoring the events of the UCs, you can make your way as a businessperson (Enalica attracts most of these), and you can be a "bad guy" anywhere except Nerogue and a "good guy" absolutely anywhere. To advertise my own faction, Rainos hosts everyone from conscientious heroes to psychopathic murders and from mayors to generals to armed vagabonds, and all members have the freedom to make up new clans and villages for any reason at all with no authority that can control them other than their own conscience (or lack thereof).

P.S. - Halhi doesn't feel restricted by Mythron because he's that kind of orderly person who gets upset if each end of his shoelaces is a different length and likes having to wear regimental blue every day of his life - TAKE THAT, IMPERIALS!

Oh ha ha ha, how clever.

Basically I'd say Mythron is the most interesting faction. I know some may disagree, and Rainos is also fairly interesting, but...

Mythron has variety. There's lots of choices - heroes, family-obsessed people, peaceful businesspeople, evil people taking advantage of the war to live some sort of mysterious life of crime without being caught and becoming an outlaw (now that I want to see, and now I'm actually wishing I had made my character like that since that would be pretty interesting), soldiers, generals, politicians, Halidran, and much more.
The builds also have more variety than the outlaw builds I see, which are generally just repetitive landscapes - Mythron builds range from normal landscapes to cave networks beneath Meids to wood/stone buildings, and much more.
And plus there's the fact that Mythron is great for anyone who wants to be a hero.

Name one primary character who is a businessperson. Thatch Gears doesn't count, by the way. Then name one evil person... oh, wait, you have Sir Kindle the Bloody...

Just because nobody's done something yet doesn't mean it can't be done - I'm going to be doing the mysterious evil person soon with a main villain in my story. And as to building variety, I was talking about it vs Outlaws.

Although might I mention that Mythronians write stories for their characters that are decent while not being novel-length.

Neutrality is rare, especially because most of the Universal Challenges involve working for the good of your own faction. Mythron and Nerogue also have a ban on independent, mercenary-style troops. If you don't want to be an Outlaw (and I can see why not), Rainos and Enalica both consist almost entirely of free-roaming people and groups with all sorts of ethics and goals. I've always tried to give the maximum amount of freedom to the members of my faction, so if you join Rainos I'll see to it that your band has opportunities to fit in.

'Kay, so I discovered this group only a little while back, and I think I would love to join. It totally seems like my type of group, both in terms of building and in terms of storyline. However, I'm in a dilemma. I took the character test, and it pretty strongly put me under Mythron's flag. However, I read this "Mythron used to spread across the whole map, but the people of Rainos decided to split apart because they didn't quite agree with Mythron's oppressive rule." and... well, you know, an "oppressive rule" doesn't sound that nice...

Oppressive rule? Could someone explain that a little more?

For my character, I've actually written a story for a competition for a fantasy/medieval set-up, much like this. I picture her as a Ranger-type (Ranger's Apprentice) experienced and fast fighter, one who sort of works alone, but is really loyal to the king.

Also, it seems like there is almost no females here. What's up with that? Are there any factions that have at least one girl in them?

Yet even more, after I join a faction, do I need to post my intro within... let's say a week? While I have explored medieval structures, I don't have any characters that go medievaly-wise (yes, that isn't a word) and would probably have to wait for a month or so.

Sorry for the long post, I just have a lot of questions that need to be resolved. But once I pick my faction, I will not change (unless something significant happens), and will be as involved as I can. Could anyone who reads this please answer my endless questions? Opinionated opinions and advice is welcome. ;)

Ah, that's cool. What about the factions? Is there any differences?

I believe Hahli covered this really well, however, I have a female friend who is going to join Rainos. Here is her page. http://www.mocpages.com/home.php/105486


So there is like... one girl who might join Raninos? Anyone else on this? Not that I have anything against boys ;), but I think it is awfully strange to have 236 members and have no (or almost no) girls...

Also, I take it that this is a mostly TFOL group?

It is a bit strange, yes. But MOCpages has about 90% more boys that girls. Don't ask me why. I don't know.

I've noticed that, but I don't understand why and I don't want to try explaining because of the risk of making stereotypes.

Anyway, I see that many other people have jumped in on the Q+A session, but I can elaborate on some of their answers.

First, there is a semi-active young lady in Nerogue - Rylie French. Abby Francis has been on the brink of joining Rainos for a couple of months now, and there is a third player called the Lost Epic who has a female Outlaw but is no longer active.

Second, Mythron has a few issues, but that's the case with every faction. Two kings ago, it had a mad tyrant for a ruler, but it has since recovered from that. Mythron also has its fair share of corrupt officials and soldiers mixed in with its honorable knights, but that can only be expected of a long-established nation. Its "oppressive rule" describes the two centuries in which it controlled Rainos, when Mythronian lords and knights tried to force the inhabitants into adopting a Mythronian way of life including such horr0rs as taxes, serfdom and paved roads. Their attempts to enforce their rule included putting down rebellions and imposing penalties for disloyalty in the style of almost any medieval conquering nation.

Third, TFOLs make up the majority of the LOM's most active players, but KFOLs probably account for the majority overall with a few people in their late teens and a couple of inactive adults. There are exceptions from this rule, however - I'm the oldest by far at my age of 402, yet I am very active; and ~ Brick, your faction leader, is 11. I think that David FNJ, the leader of Nerogue, is working on his bachelor's degree... but he also appears to be younger than 18, so I can only guess that he went through accelerated homeschooling.

Oh, thanks, that is a much more helpful. I was just about to say I'll join Mythron, but this puts me sort of on the fence. Are you from... yah, you're from Ranois, right?

Darn. Whatever. I'll join Mythron for now, I guess. I might check out other factions later, but I think Mythron fits me best.

That's pretty much it - Regional and Universal challenges (held every month) are group-wide contests that the admins judge. There are other challenges that have no winners, but still help some function: Rogue challenges open to only one faction that add some story that didn't fit in a normal challenge, and rank challenges that each player can complete to gain new privileges after gaining a certain number of points. We also have Special challenges from time to time that fulfill non-story needs, like finding someone to make a new banner or a new homepage for the group. Special challenges have winners and are scored like Regional or Universal challenges.

So when I get points, are they my individual points, or are they contributed to my faction? And do points get spent to rank up, or is it just until you get that many points? So I'm guessing you don't get to decide what you do for your faction, the leader of the faction says? I'm so confused how the multiplaying works. I'm sorry, but thanks.

No, don't do it! You're a ninja and you like Darth Maul - you should be some place where they let you seek out action and adventure on your own, like Enalica or Rainos. Just because they aren't Boy Scouts doesn't mean that they're evil. Do you know what Nerogue is like? Everyone wears green. It's like Saint Patrick's Day, all day every day! Then there are so many rules - say goodbye to independent thought or personal dreams, because it's all "We are of one mind" over there. Plus, it's ruled by an elf - who likes elves, especially if they have a dwarven personality? Please, repent for the sake of your own sanity and join a cool faction!

That's it, the rant is over. Sorry about that - as much as I enjoy pitting my faction against Mythron, which is actually a fairly-normal place, Nerogue is the one that sends tiny shivers through freedom-loving, chaotic soul. It's not for me, but David FNJ and many others are attracted to the idea. All of the factions are good for their own personality set, so I'll drop the subject and get to the important part: Welcome to the LOM!

David FNJ WOULD like Nerogue. "Just" is in his name!

FNJ is a great guy, but he is a stickler for order and rules. I, on the other hand, prefer a looser framework in which people are free to make choices based on their own common sense, morals and creativity. Between the two of us, the LOM reaches a happy middle road. That's also the key difference between our factions.

Rainos - Very few rules, many choices

Enalica - Moderate amount of rules, many choices
Outlaws - Moderate amount of rules, some choices
Mythron - Moderate amount of rules, some choices

Nerogue - Strict expectations, fewer choices

An explanation of my rules and choices divisions: Rules are what people must follow. For example, "Don't start new threads in the faction group. Wear the faction's color. Never perform an action that is dishonest or dishonorable. Fight your faction's enemies at all costs. Don't swear in the faction group." Rainos has very few of these - people start new threads whenever they want on any topics, and once even changed the faction group to a pig theme. We draw the line at starting city attacks against Enalica, though.

Choices are more along these lines: Going against traditional alliances, establishing new villages and towns, adding elements of faction history and going against the typical character of a member of the faction. Enalica and Rainos, followed by the Outlaws, have many choices. Asad, a Rainosian, was given backing to attack a neutral city to satisfy his personal storyline. Enalicans regularly help or fight people on either side of the conflict depending on their personal beliefs. Two Outlaws have become respectable mayors and leaders, although one of them worked toward that goal through honorable membership in Rainos. Unfortunately, Mythron isn't as permitting, and Nerogue certainly wouldn't let its members get up to such shenanigans.

Neroruges "We are of one mind" idea is troubling. As Gilbert of Despathens has already pointed out, you have to give up your individual hopes and dreams to be a part of this "one mind." I have noticed similarities between this phenomenon, and communism. And just what IS this one mind? Does it really have anything else to offer, except for justice? Your dedication to it could get to the point were you are so obsessed with justice, you fail to see where it is not required! Very troubling. But, I'm (almost) sure David FNJ will be able to defend his faction, and maybe provide us with some insight.

Even though I'm an ally of Nerogue, I honestly agree with you. I think FNJ was trying to make a "morally perfect" faction, but while that kind of thing is good in real life, it's bůring in a fantasy game.

Since you've expressed interest in Nerogue, you might be interested in Mythron. It's not as strict/limited as Nerogue, but it has more order and less chaos than Rainos.

Expect a full comment by Monday night :)

Tisk tisk, listening to Rainosians rants I see? I'll leave you with this to ponder - what hopes and dreams (if you can think of any) would you be giving up in order to join Nerogue? If you can name some, then answer this - what is the reason that you would have to give it up?

(If you can't name any, then ask me and I'll give you some)

Also, justice is specifically mentioned in Nerogue, but what makes you (or anyone really) think that justice is all Nerogue has to offer? None of the other factions specifically name a defining quality, yet you don't ask if ____ is all the _____ faction has to offer. Of course justice is not all that Nerogue has to offer.
For starters, check out the Justice Rock creation I made a while back to see Nerogue from another light. (Why? Because I don't have the time tonight to review it.) But like I said, I'll be back again before Monday night.

And no, making a perfectly moral faction is impossible because in this fantacy world because there is no higher power. So of course I was not trying to make it that way. The referral to the morals not good for fantasy is clearly mistaken because otherwise there would not be this many people joining Nerogue. Thus, I don't even think it is worth trying to prove the point that morals are good (if not necessary) even in fantasy.

(Replying to David FNJ) Firstly, No, I haven't been listening to Rainosian rants. I thought that theory up myself. Secondly, I have no reason to give Enalica up, and nothing will budge me. My lost hopes and dreams would include: Freedom.To have my own opinion. To go against Mythron. To be friends with dwarves. To see what's outside my comfort zone without retribution. Free building rights. To work in colors other than green, etc. Enalica's description fits me perfectly. "But you're allied with pirates! Thieves! Murders!" Tsk, tsk. This is a fantasy world, pirates don't have to be scoundrels. Thirdly, your faction's description explicitly says that you all have one cause in mind; justice. That's pretty much all it offers, besides some building styles. Sure, it says you are free, energetic and strong, but that's to help the cause of justice! Of course, there is nothing WRONG with justice, just if you take it too far. Fourthly, I did see your creation, and remain unconvinced.

You keep telling yourself that. Can Mythronians come up with new clans whenever they want? Why do Mythronians always wear blue (except for the faction leader who established the dress code, ironically)? Would a Mythronian be allowed to attack a neutral city? Would Mythronians be allowed to sail where they please, raiding or aiding based solely on their own consciences? Would Mythronians be allowed to laugh at their king's orders and do the exact opposite instead?

In Mother Rainos, the people know what it is to suffer. They know it because Mythron turned the whole island into a workhouse for two centuries, either by order of the High Kings or their negligence. I won't deny the bloodshed bit, since that's pretty common, but Rainos has its peacemongers and Mythron has its throat-cutters.

So? If he doesn't like "infinite bloodshed" (which is only a few Rainosians, anyways), then that's why he joined Enalica instead.
Oh, you must have misunderstood me. What I meant is that there wasn't really a good reason for the war in the first place - Rainos could've been much more prosperous and successful if it had decided to live peacefully with Mythron rather than starting a war that limits progress.

True, Enalica doesn't have the morals you do, we fight for whatever we believe is right.
The problem with Enalica/Rainos/Outlaws is that oftentimes, their perception of what is right is flawed. Look at Toa Infernum's character for instance - there you'll see a perfect example of a one-dimensional Rainosian with no desires other than Midnight Murder and Mischief. (by the way, can anyone guess what that last bit is from)

And look at ~Brickís character for instance- there youíll see a perfect example of a one-dimensional Mythronian with no desires other than killing Rainosians, making everyone obey the King, and finding a girlfriend.

When you look at it this way, an Enalican would, in fact, be morally superior to the loyal, obedient Mythronian.

Or discussing with others about what is right.

The Rainosians/Enalicans/Outlaws like to pretend that Mythron and Nerogue have no freedom, but they have as much freedom as any faction.

You keep telling yourself that. Can Mythronians come up with new clans whenever they want? Why do Mythronians always wear blue (except for the faction leader who established the dress code, ironically)? Would a Mythronian be allowed to attack a neutral city? Would Mythronians be allowed to sail where they please, raiding or aiding based solely on their own consciences? Would Mythronians be allowed to laugh at their king's orders and do the exact opposite instead?

True, Enalica doesn't have the morals you do, we fight for whatever we believe is right.
The problem with Enalica/Rainos/Outlaws is that oftentimes, their perception of what is right is flawed. Look at Toa Infernum's character for instance - there you'll see a perfect example of a one-dimensional Rainosian with no desires other than Midnight Murder and Mischief. (by the way, can anyone guess what that last bit is from)

And look at ~Brickís character for instance- there youíll see a perfect example of a one-dimensional Mythronian with no desires other than killing Rainosians, making everyone obey the King, and finding a girlfriend. If you want moral depth, look at Gilbert- his stories are just as detailed as anybodyís.
Thank you! I'm flattered.

Way to evade the question! LOM has no official gods or higher powers, so really, everybody is doing one of two options- doing what they think is right, or doing what someone else has told them is right. When you look at it this way, an Enalican would, in fact, be morally superior to the loyal, obedient Mythronian.

This is a medieval theme about the Lands of Mythron. You can build locations on the map, and a story of the adventures of your character. In this land there are many things, creatures, dragons, orcs, the list could go on and on! This is a magical place with wizards and mages, (Try to think something like Lord of the Rings, no hobbits though.) Your character can also posses spells to heal himself, or to inflict damage onto others. (Try not to go overboard though.) You will need to decide which Faction you wish to join below.

Mythron - This faction is the most civilized. Their building style mostly features stonework for the castles and nobles' homes. The flag color of Mythron is blue. Official colors for the national soldiers of Mythron are blue and black.

Rainos - Described as a barbarian state by its neighbor, Rainos is a free society with little government. Rainosian warriors do what they want, typically raiding Mythron for fame, fortune, and adventure. They travel alone or in war-bands of any size dressed in any manner, and their buildings are mostly made of wood with occasional rough-cut masonry. The national colors are red and black, but these are only used when the clans unite for all-out war.

Outlaws - These are just outlaws/highwaymen/brigands, wearing whatever clothes they can come by. They don't usually carry flags. (They don't have a specific territory , or race, but their headquarters is located in Bodus to the East.) Official Colors: None.

Enalica - Enalica is the island faction of Mythron. It's main city is Worsan, located south of Mythron. Although Enalica was once a pirate faction, things where changed when a Rainosian moved to Worsan and began to rally the Enalicans to adopt a new strategy: to become raiders.

Nerogue - Nerogueians are the people who come together from all of the other factions. Their official colors are Dark Green, Dark Red, and Black. The style of the builds are a mix between polished Mytrhon and barbaric Rainos. They are free, energetic, and strong - willing to fight alongside their brethren when we see injustice prevailing. They normally ally with Mythron.

...
Please state below which Faction you wish to join.
Would you please change the descriptions to describe the good and bad of each of the factions? I think that might make it easier to choose.

These replies are not necessarily directed to certain people. Rather, they are replies to statements that were made by people.


Quoting Alexander Solzhenitsyn
(Replying to David FNJ) Firstly, No, I haven't been listening to Rainosian rants. I thought that theory up myself.
Sounded the same to me :P
Quoting Alexander Solzhenitsyn
Secondly, I have no reason to give Enalica up, and nothing will budge me.
When did I mention giving Enalica up? I wasn't trying to convince you to join Nerogue. I make it a point that once someone decides, I give no further input - I'd rather encourage them in their decision. I think it's great that Enalica will have someone with strong will on their side.
Quoting Alexander Solzhenitsyn My lost hopes and dreams would include: Freedom.To have my own opinion. To go against Mythron. To be friends with dwarves. To see what's outside my comfort zone without retribution. Free building rights. To work in colors other than green, etc.
Cool, you were able to name some, but you failed to answer the second part of the question.

Anyway, Who says that Nerogueians don't have their own opinions? More on that later. Green isn't the only color we work in...and Blue isn't the only color Mythron works in...hardly, they are mainly just used for the minifigure uniforms and castle/outpost flag colors - that's it really.

Quoting Alexander Solzhenitsyn
Enalica's description fits me perfectly. "But you're allied with pirates! Thieves! Murders!" Tsk, tsk. This is a fantasy world, pirates don't have to be scoundrels.
Who says they are thieves? Not me. I've seen many a good Enalcians. As Enalica stands today as well as ignoring Nerogue, I would be choosing between Enalica and Mythron.
Quoting Alexander Solzhenitsyn
Thirdly, your faction's description explicitly says that you all have one cause in mind; justice. That's pretty much all it offers, besides some building styles. Sure, it says you are free, energetic and strong, but that's to help the cause of justice! Of course, there is nothing WRONG with justice, just if you take it too far.
I can see how that statement can be misleading if you read into it too much. Yes, that ONE cause is something that every Nerogueian has in common. It is the ONE thing that stands out from among the rest of the things that Nerogueians do. It is said as the one cause because it is the main thing that distinguishes us from others. If a country had a ONE cause of liberty, it doesn't mean that each individual person in that country has his main cause of liberty. Rather, collectively as a whole, the individuals of the country can all identify with that ONE cause. It doesn't mean that is all the country is about or that every citizen will only have the one cause/hope/dream to live out. Sure, the faction description could use a re-wording so that it doesn't confuse others. Yet, it remains as the key feature that is the common ground for all Nerogueians. We are of one mind does not mean we have differing opinions, thoughts, and ideas of how to do things. But we are all of one mind towards one another. We have a common cause, we have a common ground, and we know that we can rely on any Nerogueian that we encounter when we need it most - that's who we are. It was like that from the start - coming from the different factions all with at least that one key feature of justice (of course, justice is futile without a balance of mercy). It doesn't mean we are brain-washed as the common Rainosian would put it, rather it means we are all on the same page, we know where we stand relative to other factions and relative to each other, and from there we can make progress, overcome obstacles, and reach victory.


Going back to wanting freedom, what you're really saying is that you want to do anything you want without anyone saying it isn't right. In a fantasy world with no higher power, liberty is the same as anarchy (Rainos, anyone? - what keeps Rainos together? Uh, it's hatred for Mythron) because everyone does what he wants with no standard. The word justice means that there must be some sort of standard of right and wrong somewhere, so from there liberty/freedom can truly be established. I don't care what people say - freedom in the extreme sense of being able to do ANYTHING the person wants is really just being a slave to the whims of the current culture/society.

Quoting Alexander Solzhenitsyn
Fourthly, I did see your creation, and remain unconvinced.
What was I trying to convince you of?
Quoting Alexander Solzhenitsyn I respect your morals, and your symbolism, but a tree doesn't MOVE. It doesn't go on adventures, or have fun, or do anything which Lego is ALL about! The branches can move, but only within their comfort zone. I thought Lego was about new experiences, not doing the same thing over and over again!
As I recall, trees are in a state of constant growth - growing stronger day by day and year by year. It'll stay strong if it is firmly planted in something solid - not whimsical sways of emotion and a thought of morals that shift with popular culture.
Quoting Alexander Solzhenitsyn True, Enalica doesn't have the morals you do, we fight for whatever we believe is right. But so do you, only on a different scale!
In any world, morals cannot be defined in stone except for a higher power, but they are nonetheless necessary. But this gets into the topic of how it is impossible to create any sort of story with substance without some sort of a firm standard of right and wrong. Anyway, Nerogue at least attempts to define that standard by forcing people to think about what justice means and how that would apply to their characters if they were to join Nerogue. Why is Nerogue popular as it is? You have to think, you have to decide on something, there is a definition about who we are. We have a cause that binds us together - something that keeps us on the same page - something that is worth fighting for - something that strengthens us and allows for a path of what is right - even though it cannot be concretely defined in a world such as this (though since we are all human behind computers, we pretty much draw on what we know from the outside world which is why justice conveys a certain form of solidness to what is right and wrong even though it (nor anything really) cannot be truly defined in this fantasy world. Fantasy worlds wouldn't be able to be created without this background of morals in the first place, but anyway....) Nerogue brings a form of solidness into the picture. And whenever a standard is defined, there will be no doubt that others will come against it in some way/shape/form.



Quoting Halhi 141
Really? That's almost exactly what Gilbert says about Nerogue. I can't say I entirely disagree with him - I'm not a fan of Nerogue's contradictions myself - but still...
Hopefully what was said above would clear up these seemingly random accusations which are not defined in that comment.

Quoting Halhi 141

I guess you're not into symbolism or it is hard for you to understand it? Sure, something else could have been better, but what failed for you with the tree analogy?


Quoting Thomas of Tortuga
And as long as you don't act unjustly in any way.
When would there be an instance where you'd choose to act unjustly? If you choose to act unjustly, don't expect justice from others (which, in fact, would be just if you think about it....).
Quoting Thomas of Tortuga
Finally. Heís seeing sense!
What sense? Hopefully the large portions in this comment will help clear this misconception about Nerogue ONLY being about ONE thing.




Man, the other factions (besides Rainos which is bound only by its hatred against Mythron, because the rest is just anarchy) don't even have a clear cause that defines the bulk of who they are! Yet Nerogue is the one being picked on for standing for justice! (What injustice is this? Haha) It defines the common ground of something we each stand for - we each have separate hopes and dreams - all of which are being pursued with total freedom. That freedom is only bound by what is just, and I wouldn't want freedom that is not bound by something because otherwise anything can be just by being "justified." No bounds for freedom - no such thing as right and wrong. It doesn't get any simpler than that. Nerogue defines it. Don't even try to argue right and wrong in the context of boundless freedom because it doesn't work. Period.



Quoting Thomas of Tortuga
LOM has no official gods or higher powers, so really, everybody is doing one of two options- doing what they think is right, or doing what someone else has told them is right. When you look at it this way, an Enalican would, in fact, be morally superior to the loyal, obedient Mythronian.
Good points, except that that there is a third option - not doing what someone tells them to do, but actually coming together and defining something that does not alter based on how people think or feel. Then it is not a matter of doing what one things is right, or doing something what someone tells them to do, but rather do what they know to be right.
Nerogue capitalizes on something that is already instilled within each personal character created in this world - a sense of right and wrong. I don't care how people try and cover it up, but there is no way there can be an absence of right and wrong - even in fantasy. In Rainos it's a free-for-all, Outlaws free-for-all as well, but even more so than Rainos, Mythron is more of a duty to the king while still remaining pretty much honorable, and Enalica is somewhere in between them by weighing in other factors.



Quoting Gilbert Despathens
Can Mythronians come up with new clans whenever they want? Why do Mythronians always wear blue (except for the faction leader who established the dress code, ironically)? Would a Mythronian be allowed to attack a neutral city? Would Mythronians be allowed to sail where they please, raiding or aiding based solely on their own consciences? Would Mythronians be allowed to laugh at their king's orders and do the exact opposite instead?
I see freedom with no bounds --> A-N-A-R-C-H-Y

But at least there is hope for Rainos to break free of its state of do-whatever-whenever-because-it-is-freedom

Quoting Halhi
Haha, those building styles are just very general guidelines - I believe I've avoided stereotypical Mythronian castles, at least.

I agree - that was a well-written rebuttal. I have a few problems with it, though:
"Rainos, anyone? - what keeps Rainos together? Uh, it's hatred for Mythron"
"In any world, morals cannot be defined in stone except for a higher power, but they are nonetheless necessary."
"I see freedom with no bounds --> A-N-A-R-C-H-Y
But at least there is hope for Rainos to break free of its state of do-whatever-whenever-because-it-is-freedom"

True anarchy does not exist. Whenever two or more people band together, there are rules. It's a natural condition, but these rules do not have to be set in stone.

There are natural rights and natural laws. Natural rights are the freedom to do anything that is within one's capabilities. Natural laws are practical decisions made to survive. For example, murder is often frowned upon because it takes productive members out of society. Theft is the same - if everyone stole for a living, a society would have no production. Any of your basic rights or wrongs can be traced back to their origin as guidelines for surviving, higher power or not. Rainos allows people to choose their own natural rights and natural laws - order is flexible, but it is still there if you know where to look. After all, individual communities and clans have laws and rights specific to their own societies - if Rainosians want protection and stability, they are welcome to it.

"I don't care what people say - freedom in the extreme sense of being able to do ANYTHING the person wants is really just being a slave to the whims of the current culture/society."

Again you misinterpret the meaning of extreme freedom, which I identified earlier in this comment. Why would someone who is truly free care what society thinks? Honestly, I have plenty of days when I just don't care about certain social conventions. Thou shalt not wear a toga in public? What sort of rule is that? Freedom means the right to wear a toga every day.

"Justice! Honor! Integrity! Truth! With one mind we stand strong!"

This is the main problem people have with Nerogue. If truth and integrity are on your list, why the obsession with spies?

"We Nerogueians are now firmly established in the rock, and grounded in what we know to be true. We will never make the same mistake Mythron did. We will not leave our foundation."

This part tells me that Nerogue might grow, but it will never change. The ideas of justice it has now, it says, will be the same ones it stands by until its fall. As it happens, life changes and so do right and wrong. Look at any news website for a thousand examples of this. Will Nerogue enforce medieval ideals after every other faction has moved on? I can see it now: Nobody expects the Nerogueian Inquisition!

"Anyway, Nerogue at least attempts to define that standard by forcing people to think about what justice means and how that would apply to their characters if they were to join Nerogue."

Yep, I was right - force is FNJ's answer, people. One faction leader's character is often compared to a caped crusader, but this one's the real deal - he has the army of zealots to prove it.

"When would there be an instance where you'd choose to act unjustly? If you choose to act unjustly, don't expect justice from others (which, in fact, would be just if you think about it....)."

That depends on how you define justice, isn't it? How about the starving person who steals food in order to keep living? How about the action-movie hero/stereotypical Outlaw who is framed for a crime and fights the forces meant to uphold justice because they have the wrong guy? How about the reformed-but-still-pursued criminal who has not atoned for his or her crimes but has repented of them? How about the people who sit in front of their computers, idly building pretend worlds while real people go hungry in their own countries?

"Man, the other factions don't even have a clear cause that defines the bulk of who they are!"
Mythron: Patriotism (and blueness)
Rainos: Liberty (and whatever we want)
Enalica: Freedom (and adventure)
Outlaws: Sanctuary (and revenge)

"Yet Nerogue is the one being picked on for standing for justice!"

NEROGUE is the one being picked on? Every faction has flaws that come up in smack. Mythron is corrupt or overly-nationalistic, Rainos is bloodthirsty or chaotic, Enalica is small and burns farms, the Outlaws are homeless criminals and Nerogue is big-headed and dangerously self-confident. You lot simply don't admit it.

"No bounds for freedom - no such thing as right and wrong. It doesn't get any simpler than that. Nerogue defines it. "

Ah, yes. I rest my point about big-headed, as well as my earlier Inquisition comment.

Rainos is no Anarchy... The Outlaws are. Although there are two sides to the Outlaws. One is that Anarchy, where everyone does what they want, which is chaotic, but great for developing action-packed stories. But the other side is actually very orderly: I need only point to Shawn Gibson and his control of Elpis, or OoL and his band of fugitives. People thrown out of society who band together to form their own societies, with order and stability. In fact, when talking about Outlaws, you have to differentiate between to bodies of people: Those thieves that stay entirely to themselves, or the Outlaw organization ran by the Coordinator. The former is, granted, not very good, but the Outlaw organization does have order and a hierarchy. The difference between that and Mythron is that the coordinator wants no taxes and you are not strictly obligated to follow his commands. The people who follow them know that it is for the goal they themselves wish to achieve and/or that they will benefit from following the commands, in that they will gain in status and reputation.
In the Outlaw organization, you gain if you help the leader, in Mythron, you get punished if you don't.
Most people think of the Outlaws as pure chaos, but remember that they are an organization, and do have order.

I certainly wasn't going against the opinion of anyone specific, just reminding people that, when talking about outlaws, you have to differentiate between the collection of outcasts roaming Mythron and the organization. Traits of the former are often falsely attributed to the latter, and that is what I think shouldn't happen. :P About the overpopulation... what can I say? The prospect of a) being a bad guy and b) being pretty much your own boss in a game like LOM just appeals to a lot of people. The annoying thing is though, that even though we have so many members, the number of long-time active members in the Outlaws is no more than that of Rainos or Mythron. So for me, the "overpopulation" is barely noticeable.

Honestly, I don't think any one faction is better than the others. Don't shoot me. I don't want to be "that guy" who just has to say he likes them all.

But seriously. Think about it. It's ALL based on preference AND on creativity. Obviously, I prefer Enalica because I basically (with the help of Thomas) created it. I love the faction!

However, with creativity, I can see being in any other faction. In fact, I could see The Masked being in any faction. I was in Rainos before, so obviously that worked. I am pretty much a sophisticated outlaw, so I could easily be that. I do things to benefit my faction and bring justice to the corrupt, so Nerogue wouldn't be too bad (though a tight squeeze for The Masked). I'm the governor of Enalica, so politics as a big part of my character, and I strive for power (Mythron).

With creativity, you can really be in any faction and still love the game.

Also, creating a character is fun, I think most of us know that. But when you get to create him and mold him into a universe already in existence, it's even better. Factions can help grow a character, and it honestly doesn't matter which faction, just be creative and have fun.

That's my 2 cents :P

Yes, exactly what I was thinking. People don't join factions because they think it's the best, it's because it's what they prefer.

You can restart at any time if you want, and you don't even have to delete your old MOCs. You can keep them up and you'll still get points for them, if you like.

Except that Outlaws are indisputably inferior.

After long arguments with Asad i have come to agree with you. Not because he made me but because i've come to notice that outlaws are boring and not very fun from experience.

At least the Outlaws are a great starting point. Outlaws can reform (or worsen) and move to any faction they want. It seems like that's where half of Rainos came from.

Haha, now that's a cheap shot. (Not that it isn't true). I originally wanted to join the outlaws, but Asad convinced me Rainos was the best group for my character. Overall, the outlaws problem is there lack of organisation and the fact that so many members are dormant.

Welcome to the LOM! Mythron will need new members to come close to catching up to the best faction in the game, Rainos. I wish you luck.
