Okay I think this is a question only Freeling can answer. So I'm thinking, since this is RPG, and story telling thing, of writing a book about Mythron. I have a pretty good Idea of what i would write, and I could make Chapter Topic, where I'll post each chapter as I write it. I won't do it without your permission of course since you created Mythron, Rainos, etc. If you OK this i'd like to have the LoM members give one or two good medieval names to be used. their character's name, and one other. So just let me know if you're ok with it, I'd love writing this. Thanks! :)

Put a 2x1 plate on top - that isn't a perfect fit, but it works.

I was actually looking for a way to fill in the side gaps...I just found a really complex technique using the half plate thick section of some SNOT brackets as well as some cheese slopes to create something that looks basically identical to the normal arch, except more complex (especially due to the return of my half plate offset technique). Now hopefully I can have enough of all the pieces I used to make 5 more window arches...

Those ranks are pretty much undecided upon right now - the challenges mentioned at those points are actually optional (and really hard at that). So the privilege of adding a city comes either at 150 points or at 150 points PLUS doing some sort of generic challenge like the rest of the ranks have.

Guys, my loyalty to LOM is being tested. For me, it just all seems hollow. The worst feeling is that I can't do any thing about it. I'm considering setting up my own world, but that won't have the same social aspect that LOM does, yet while I can use my great skill of writing to a certain extent, it's limited by the dynamics of the game.

I would appreciate some moral support, and possibly a way to over come this feeling.

Hadran has acquired a reputation for being cursed. They say that anyone who claims it will soon meet a terrible end.
Actually, "they" (meaning I) do say that Hadran is cursed, but mostly it's unclaimed because I have Iremore, Toa Infernum has Guaire, Night Reaper has Grorm, Adam is more interested in taking Elpis and no one else has come forward. Rainos is perpetually short-handed, it seems... not like Mythron, which has half again as many players.

I can think of three reasons

1) It's got a pretty boring name, that would only ever suit a small, boring wooden town.

2) All the other major ideas for Rainosian cities (at least the ones appealing to me) have been taken

3) There has been, and still isn't any form of activity in West side of Rainos.


If we were to change its name (not likely) and allow me to improve and develop it in the way I see fit (even less likely, since I prefer glorious, imperialistic stone metropolises of great history)

I've seen fire pistols, fire rifles and fire cannons, so yes to your second question. To your first, I'm afraid you have to choose one faction to officially belong to for the sake of keeping track of points, but I don't see any reason why you can't have a mixed group of Rainosians and Enalicans in your band or have a group of Enalicans fighting for Rainos. A spy or diplomat rank would give you more privileges.

You're officially an Outlaw, but you can change at any time until you make an introduction. Also, each faction has a series of rank challenges that must be completed in order. You can do your first Outlaw rank challenge as soon as you have an intro up - all you have to do is show your character agreeing to join the Organization in a MOC. You won't be able to complete the next challenge until you have 25 character points, but when you have earned the points you can complete the next mission to earn a privilege: the right to form a guild of your own to fight in the yearly Tourney and invite your friends to. The other ranks come at 25 point intervals and they are completed in the same way, giving you new privileges in exchange for mission MOCs.

Ok cool, I'll have my group of men armed with Fire Rifles, better for defence then attack.

Ok then I'll stay with Enalica then, but what I meant by working for Rainos was could you like invite me to the Rainos Faction page(don't worry I'm not going to spy, plus your already in the Enalica Faction page, so if I was spying you would see it and then could just kick my out of the Rainos Faction page) so then I could take part in Rainos combate movement, you could even give me orders for my group, believe me I work better when I'm told what to do.

There are many ways to earn points, not all of which are from challenges:

Freebuilds - Anytime, up to five per month - 2 points each
Universal/Regional Challenges - Monthly - 5 points each
Special Challenges - When posted (current: design a homepage) - 5 points each
First Place in Special, Universal or Regional Challenge - 10 points
Second and Third Places - 6-8 points
Rogue Challenges - When posted - 4 points each
Rank Challenges - At 25-point intervals - 3 points each
Tourney Entries - During the Tourney - ~3 points each, 4 per passing a round
Tourney Prizes - Based on guild and personal merits - 2 to 28 points

Most people earn points through freebuilds and entries to the monthly Universal and Regional challenges. There's only a day left in this month's UC, but we'll have another up by April 2 at the latest.

Ok cool, I'll have my group of men armed with Fire Rifles, better for defence then attack.

Ok then I'll stay with Enalica then, but what I meant by working for Rainos was could you like invite me to the Rainos Faction page(don't worry I'm not going to spy, plus your already in the Enalica Faction page, so if I was spying you would see it and then could just kick my out of the Rainos Faction page) so then I could take part in Rainos combate movement, you could even give me orders for my group, believe me I work better when I'm told what to do.

There are two ways to get into the Rainos faction group if you aren't a Rainosian: By gaining a spy or diplomat rank and using it to join (even if you don't steal information) or by working with at least one Rainosian player and doing a noble deed in the name of Rainos (like Jacob Pennington, who chose to fight for Rainos in the October UC).

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.

Your points are added to your individual record, and the totals of the points earned by the people in a faction are added up to give the factions scores of their own. Ranking up does not consume points - you keep those forever except in very unusual situations in which you freely decide to give them up.

As for freedoms, faction leaders cannot force you to do anything. They can recommend courses of action or, in a worst-case scenario, suggest that you join another faction that will better fit with your choices. Faction leaders give directions at times and post activities, but you have the ultimate say over what you do. If you want to avoid all the conflict and wander around doing your own thing, that's perfectly fine... and so is taking your faction's recommendations, talking smack on the other factions, participating in every challenge and spending your MOCs fighting the enemies of your faction.

Freebuilds - Anytime, up to five per month - 2 points each
Universal/Regional Challenges - Monthly - 5 points each
Special Challenges - When posted (current: design a homepage) - 5 points each
First Place in Special, Universal or Regional Challenge - 10 points
Second and Third Places - 6-8 points
Rogue Challenges - When posted - 4 points each
Rank Challenges - At 25-point intervals - 3 points each

Quoting Bumblebee5253 . Okay, this is great, thanks. Is there any limitations on weapons/killing of characters?

Weapons -
Freeling and Harry Wilkinson are working on a list of spells, many of which are or can be weaponized. Some of the major enchantments (destroy a town, raise an army) will require high ranks due to their extreme nature, but mostly they're open to anyone.

There is no gunpowder in the LOM. Instead, some people (Enalicans especially) use pistol, rifle, musket and cannon pieces to shoot beams of fire a short distance.

Dwarves have heavier machinery than the rest of the races, more akin to steampunk than fantasy, but the machines stay below ground and dwarves are very rarely seen aboveground.

Killing-
A good rule of thumb is that you can't kill a character unless you made it up or the person who made it up gave you permission to do so. For example, no one can kill someone like a king of Mythron or Rainos without permission from the admins, and I can't suddenly kill a villain that someone else was using in his or her story.

The ban on killing characters is extended to close relatives of characters you did not create because that still has a definite impact on the other character. For example, someone once made up a son of the king and assassinated him - he was asked to change the names because the king would have been outraged at the death of his son and would most likely have started a war.

Cities are protected in a manner similar to characters. A certain rank is required to attack major cities, and smaller towns usually have creators to ask permission of.

Over the characters you create, you more or less have the power of life and death. If you're a Mythronian or a Nerogue, it's frowned upon to kill members of your own faction or your faction's ally (or, for Nerogues, anyone who might be innocent). Members of the other factions can more or less kill with impunity, although if you slaughter a hundred people per MOC other players might look at you funny.

An edit to changing of groups, I believe that you can change groups as many times as you want up until the 100 point marker? If I'm incorrect, you can correct me.

Currently, you can change factions at will until 100 points, but it's best if you don't do it too often. There is one player who changed factions twice (three times in his character's story - Mythronian to Outlaw to Nerogue to Rainosian), but he kind of ticked some people off before he settled down. Currently, the staff group is sitting on a rule that will limit players' abilities to change from a smaller factions to larger ones, but, since you're in the second-largest, this probably won't affect you.

None of the builds are mandatory, and you can pick a faction, build an intro and start building. Descriptions of the factions are on the front page, but Rainos is the best (in my opinion as the faction leader of Rainos) and the Outlaws have too many people (also in my opinion). We'll have a new challenge coming today or tomorrow, too. I'd give a better response, but I have to go. Good luck!

There are no official chapters - you build what you feel like, and usually there's a common story for your character. Most people have some sort of Great Plan for their character - they have archenemies, goals and allies that come up again and again. These story segments can come in any sort of LOM build, and some builds have little to do with the story at all, merely illustrating something in the Lands.
Also, the five freebuild limit is a strange rule - it's there, but only once has anyone reached it (and that was at the end of a month). Theoretically, it gets people to slow down and focus on quality over quantity.

After the tragic story of Beren and Luthien, the Valar offered each held elf a choice. They could live with the humans or the elves. If they chose human they would be granted many elvish qualities but will eventually die. If the y chose the elves the, in essence, become elves.

I've kind of wondered about that, too. In the LOTR, I'm fairly certain that Elrond is only half-elven, but he has pointy ears, immortality and a superiority complex like all the others.

Could you maybe ask the other staff members and see what they think about it?

This is just a question! I'm not hinting at anything (yet)! What would a child of an elf and a human be like? Like would it be a human who lives longer than a normal human, and has elflike qualities, or something like that?
Perhaps it's not even possible.
Cat + dog = nothing. (Not something in-between)
Elf + human = nothing.
That's what I think, since we're dealing with different species. I hope that helps!

How are elves not the same type of creature as humans? They look the same, except one has pointy ears, longevity and the inability to grow facial hair. Different types of dogs are much more different... and humans have bred with "separate species" like Neanderthals.

Sorry if this is off-topic, but I need some advice (if you want to redirect me, and then delete this, that's fine). I have been having a LOT of trouble with the photo uploader for my character introduction (with Java, the browser, etc.), and am wondering if others have had this problem (yes, even the old uploader won't work). I've borrowed different laptops in my family to try to work this out, but it still won't work. If others have had this problem, how did you fix it? Is there some kind of troubleshooting I should do? Thanks a lot: I do hope I can get my character introduction up soon, as the black lotus concept is quite interesting.

Yeah the issue is definitely with java, the latest update does not recognise the authentication certificates for this website.

What you need to do is go to the java control panel on your computer, if you are using windows 7 or 8 just go to the search facility and type "java control panel" and click the link.

Then select security and there is a section to add exceptions. Click ADD and then type the FULL web address including the http:// at the beginning. Now click ok and when you come back here the uoloader should work.

So in other words (this would probably work best on your mom's laptop) just manually set mocpages to be allowed by the Java Security. That's the best way to fix the problem without having to change too much.

Hope you can get it working!

If your main character joins the Black Lotus, you can join the BL's private group. If you're in the BL, that doesn't mean you necessarily have to wear black and spend all of your time going on missions - it mostly means that you are against Mythron and would like to see it defeated. The part about leaving is to prevent people from spying at will - you can't say you joined the BL, check out everything in the group and then leave immediately to fight our operatives. If you're going to spy, you have to keep up appearances... so, if you sign up, you have to wait for the month to end before you change sides.

1. Look at Freeling's Regicide MOC, he'll probably look like the previous king since Sadon's the late King's brother. If worst comes to worst, you could always just show him from a back view, or not at all.
2. Yes, I believe so.
3. There's no real official number, just show as many as you want.

Prince Sadon should be in his early thirties, with the third brother, Borin, in his late twenties to early thirties. The appearances of the kings vary - despite Freeling's assassination MOC, Rowan was typically portrayed as a man with shoulder-length brown hair and the conquistador minifigure's face. Sadon probably looks similar to some degree. Finally, David FNJ's character was once a close royal adviser, but that is about all that has been revealed of the Mythronian court.

I can't tell you why your UC isn't working, but it's best to save drafts of your posts to a Word document or similar program so you don't have to completely restart.
As for secondary characters, you can make one as soon as you want and even use the secondary character as a guild founder.

My first tip would be to make them actually fit into the Mythron setting. the basic rule of that is: medieval stuff. No futuristic or present-day things. I know the current homepage doesn't really describe mythron all that well, but this group (http://www.mocpages.com/group.php/23851) made for the homepage challenge by Halhi and Stephen does an exceptional job at explaining it all, so maybe that might help you.
After that, you could get into the building itself, but the most important thing to remember for your freebuilds is that they have to fit into the setting of Mythron. ;)

Google it and look at the first two options. Those explain it pretty well, in my opinion. Unfortunately, I don't meet the requirements needed to participate and this state will continue in the foreseeable future. This is why:

- Only Lego User Groups (LUGs) can access this discount, bulk supply
- LUGs are only eligible if they have ten or more buying members
- LUGs must hold two public exhibitions in the previous year in order to qualify for a LUGBULK order in any given year
- LUGs must also have public websites including pictures and schedules of their exhibitions

However, it does look like a great tool for LUGs. The parts selection and prices are better than Pick-a-brick, although parts must be from sets produced in the past 12-18 months and do not include licensed parts like Star Wars aliens. Finally, the maximum order per person is about $222, yet the minimum group order is about $2219, so estimate quantities as you will.

What determines "way too far"? I didn't look at any sensitive information, unless you count the "beef prices" thread. I also didn't invite anyone - that's an staff-only privilege even with this hacking system.

Iffy: Changing the text to make it have a Mythronian bias, but not deleting anything or looking into the group.

Definite no: Deleting the text (including the ASCII black falcon shield), changing the group to "Anyone can join" and inviting lots of people to the group.


I don't know how people were invited either - I've tried that before (in non-private groups) and it doesn't work, but the fact is that some people (David, at least) were invited and I trust that Brick isn't responsible for it.

Trust me, I didn't delete that shield or the text in your group! It looks like you spent far too much time getting the shield right for me to erase it. I did delete everything in Rainos, though, to purge it of lies and present less of a target. Maybe one of the Mythronian admins did the same?
I also made it so that anyone could join the group, I confess, but I have no idea how David or anyone else received invitations to join the group.

We only have one admin in the Mythron group, and I doubt Brick would do that.

I'd consider making a group so that anyone can join to be unacceptable. That completely defeats the point of having a private faction group. I'm sure that there's other faction groups with secrets they don't want a certain faction to see; how would they like it if someone without the spy rank went into the group and made it so that anyone can join?

Rainos has been public for half its history, but I see your point. I may have forgotten that point because our spy already tells us everything, and I didn't see any information more sensitive than your response to our Piglot joke. Fortunately, I didn't see anyone mentioning how they had a chance to look at all sorts of confidential threads - I think that most people who joined, like me, were more interested in the joking aspect, and I'll be able to tell you if it turns out that either the Outlaws or Enalicans have obtained private information. I'm sorry about that now.

Luckily Brick's pretty unorganized so I think the only possible info anyone could have gotten was my UC missions, not that that really matters. I think my main issue was just the idea behind it, not really the effects - if something like this were to happen in a faction group that is actually used, it could be a disaster.

OK I'll come up front and be honest - I "invited" myself. :P

Once I heard Gilbert was hacking into the group and changing stuff I just kept changing it back, and people assumed it was Halhi. I could only tell he changed it when the title changed, and then I went and changed it again. So I was defending Mythron, in a sense. :P

After a while I got tired of not seeing anything, so I changed the settings to anyone can join, I joined, then changed the settings right back. And the only text I deleted/changed was what was obviously changed by Gilbert. I hope nothing was seriously damaged, I must say I had a good laugh changing the intro back from dissing Mythron to dissing Rainos.


The only two giveaways that it was me, were that in all my stories, I've always said: 'Ranesians' instead of 'Rainosians'. Same thing as in the rules of the group. I also deleted Neroguians name from the people not allowed to join the group.
No harm was meant, and I sincerely apologize for supporting Mythron.

He wasn't the only one kicked out...but everything else is true. We'll reinvite him once Ian gets his spy rank so that both sides are even. I like the idea of the spy rank in terms of strategy, but in building challenges like this I don't like it as much...

That's kind of rude, hijacking someone else's guild group so you can have a private planning session. I would have at least asked them before kicking them.

Possibly I have no idea what the "tourney" even is?

People join guilds and their characters compete in fictional events like obstacle courses and jousts while players compete in MOCoffs. You can take a look at the last Tourney here:

Not your team - Halhi's group, the GnomIIes. In other words, they're the Average Gnomes with a new leader, no speedos and two i's in their name to signify their second-generation status. The conflict here was that they didn't have a guild charter or even a guild rank but had formed a group and started recruiting anyway. I believe that it's resolved by now.

I concur. I don't like how it seems Halhi makes up rules. He doesn't like being at a disadvantage, so he uses a guild group he doesn't own. He says he wants to wait until Ian gets his spy rank, this is how the game works. If your team is at a disadvantage, that isn't our problem until you start making things up.

You might want to reread my comment if you think that I dislike the spy/ambassador ranks.

I am in full support of them, but only for strategic matters. In a <emphasis>building</emphasis> contest like this, it's more fair to either have both sides have spies or neither sides have spies - then we can actually see who's the better builder.

What I find is odd is that despite it being clear in the attacking cities thread that they want the defending side to have the advantage, they give the attacking side the advantage by choosing the location. You already have that one advantage - don't be complaining about not having another.

I wouldn't care if you made a new group or chat thread for your work, but I don't think it's appropriate to overhaul Freeling and George's guild, kicking some of its members, to suit your purposes. I would have at least asked the potential spies first to see if they were okay with it.

I did make a new group originally - but due to a misunderstanding you told me to delete it. I suppose I probably should have told you what it was then...

The Black Lotus' mission is to topple Mythron's corrupt regime forever. What it intends to do once the faction has fallen is uncertain, but it has recruited many players from the Outlaws, Rainos and Enalica. Despite its arguably-noble cause, the group has been criticized for its often-intimidating recruiting program and its predilection for terror and assassination as weapons.

Enalica are a bit vague... Who actually are they and what do they do? (Other than pirating)
BTW, can someone answer my other question please


Well,my character(when not doing Black Lotus errands)pretty much wanders around and kills people,which probably describes Enalica(or perhaps just about everyone here).

It's all on the homepage, my friend. Basically, Enalica is focused on adventure and exploration, just like Nerogue is focused on justice.

And I would say go for it on the Mythron thing. Brick's not around, and I think they've accepted traitors before.

Thanks and Enalica sound _____y(no offense)

Don't talk like that. That's not cool. Maybe you don't think so, but at least 19 people think Enalica is the best faction, and many of them have devoted hours of their lives to their faction and to this game. Treat others and others' loyalties with respect, and you'll be far happier than if you bad-mouth other people's factions.

Time for some tough questions...
What's the spoken language of LOM called?
What's the written language called?
What does it look like (Roman Alphabet, Runes, something else?)?
Is there more world than what is shown in the maps? Is the rest of the world just water?

That's all I can think of for now.

English and its alphabet are known as Mythronian in the game, but there are other languages and alphabets used by smaller populations within the lands, including runes. The world is also bigger than the map and has many other populated islands and continents, but distance isolates the realm used in this game except in very special circumstances.

Will these areas at some point be included in the game? Are the people there advanced? Are they barbaric (even more than Rainosians maybe :P)? Are they both? Is travel between these areas possible? Have explorers from Mythron/Rainos reached these other areas? Are there records of these? Has there ever been trade between them and us? Sorry but your answer gave me more questions.

Ooooooh,I see some possibility of my eventually to be described kingdoms(see earlier in this thread about the apparent allowing of centaurs)being used in here[perhaps in my 100 point rank challenge].But yes,there are barbaric tribes-and more advanced ones,and they fight each other riding(respectively)dragons and griffins-at least in my own story.

These areas are kind of like a wild card - there there be dragons, or rather anything that doesn't fit in the world used for game play. For example, an empire on the other side of the world somewhere (which is still round in this game, even if I think a flat one would be cool) has some far-eastern aspects (see BobaFett 2's story) and the infamous Troytonian empire (Aranethon's world) existed in a distant land. David FNJ's character, Darvainian, originally hails from another land, and the official history states that members of many species, including humans, immigrated to the Lands of Mythron from elsewhere in the world in several waves. Finally, Thomas of Tortuga has identified an island/continent which will be called ā€¯Australionā€¯ by future settlers and islands to the south that have a special potion. No plans have been made to include these lands in the main story.

I believe this has been discussed before, but do religions/cults exist in any capacity in LOM? Like we obviously can't use modern religions, which I get, but what about things like the old Norse or Roman religions, without using those actual pantheons? [Ess]

I believe that it is in the sense that since there are no higher-powers, there can not be any correct religion - they are more like organized groups of people who "worship" things even though the things don't really have power (except in small ways kind of like the magic thread points out)

As a matter of fact, I'm slowly developing a voyage of exploration to a few of these distant continents. Right now, it's looking like it's going to be this fall, after a battle in Rainos in late summer. In the meantime, I'm slowly working in references to my regular builds. Oh, and just to be clear, these are part of my personal storyline, not LOM's.

Gilbert is correct about English being the main language. There are a few others, however. Islanders and some of the really wild barbarians and orcs have been known to speak gibberish. Troytonians speak either Latin or English, and the inhabitants of Orfdor speak English but write in runes. I can translate letters/dialogue for these languages, if anybody needs it. Also, I wonder if a few people in southern Enalica or Nerogue might speak Greek? :P
