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. Permalink
I'll take the barbarians, then. Backwards people who can't do courtly ballads but excel at pagan religions and bothering the fancy folk- what's not to love? Look for Cedric the Bull sometime soon. Permalink

But secretly, I work with the Mythrons as a spy.
Preview:My adventure begins while raiding a ship!
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!:)
-Brick Boy Permalink
thanks for inviting me. I devinitely like the idea. I already took a look at LCC, but thatīs - for now - a bit too big for me.
I will go with Mythron (and I already have an idea...)
But it can take a while until I can post my intro as I dropped my camera :-( Permalink
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.
I'll join as an outlaw, but I might not be very active at first. I'm currently developing a large story with lots of detailed settings, so most of my time is going to that right now. Sounds fun though! Permalink
I shall be a king of Mythron in the City of Bodus (I hope thats ok with the Admins, if not then please tell me)I will never leave my men, and will always fight along-side them, and dressed and armed the same as them.(Lucky for me I am still alive, as I was always wanting to learn sword fighting as a child.) Permalink
Quoting IronClaw `
OOPS!!!! Sorry, I must have not seen that Bodus is part of the outlaws territory!!! Thanks for reminding me!!!
I will be the King of Carthal, so I can keep an eye out for any Pirates on the move. (I also have specially trained horses and horsemen that are good at fighting and extremely quick in moving around from city to city. In which I can send for help if I am under seige by the Pirates!). PLEASSEEEEE tell me if this is finaly ok. Permalink
the faction i chose is Mythron as i stick to castle MOCs. castle theme was always my favourite as a child and nothing has changed!!
i've added my two MOCs to the group, so feel free to have a look and any contsructive comments you have, please feel free to do so!!
im currently working on a third castle MOC, but its taking a while as im in the final stages of university and obviousy that takes priority, but fingers crossed after a few more brick link purchases, and some re-designing, i should have some pics up soon, and ill add them to the group as soon as i have them!!
so yeah, im Chris, im 28 and from essex in england, hi everyone!! Permalink
I caved in! (well, not caved in, but you know, I finally decided to join in on the building)
Faction: Outlaws (for now)
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. Permalink

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. Permalink
Quoting Mr. Cab
I will join either Outlaws or Nerogue. Could I join the Outlaws and then later switch to Nerogue?
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. Permalink

What I am looking for is rather something like a man who acts only on his own accord, robbing anything of value and doing jobs for money. Permalink

I have seem your building style and I wish to contract your services for the current Universal Challenge. If you can do a naval scene against Nerogue, I am prepared to discuss price.
Anything for a price *bows* and speaking of the price. Name it. BTW this was actually the best thing for me. I was actually planning on doing a naval scene. Permalink
Quoting Gilbert Despathens
NOT RAINOS? What is it with everyone who joined in the past two weeks spontaneously failing to JOIN RAINOS? By the way, please feel free to convert to RAINOS. Those Nerogues are way too straight-laced.
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. Permalink
Not necessarily, but it will definitely help identify you. The most important color is the dark green.
I hope this helps!
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). Permalink
Quoting Colin Long
I just joined [Enalica], how do you rank up?
You COULD join Rainos - with our freedoms and privileges, any switch to our faction is more or less a rank up from anywhere else! However, if Enalica is the place you want, the first rank has a simple challenge to complete. Permalink
Quoting Alex Rode
Too late for me to change :P Which faction do you think I should have joined?
He'll say Mythron, because he's a Mythronian. The irony is that he only joined Mythron because it was low on members when he arrived, and now he doesn't believe that any other faction should have recruits. Permalink
Quoting royalbrickcustoms (RBC)
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):
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. Permalink
