Yeah, I've got one. What is this group about? Sorry, I was just invited here without warning and I think the blurb sounds interesting. I'm also good at micro building design, but I need more to go on before I commit. Please tell me. :)

It's basically a contest-based game that revolves around the story of a city called "Legopolis" (more about the story itself will be revealed in around two weeks). The general idea of the game is to try to get as many points as you can, both by entering and winning contests. Thanks for joining!

Can I come up with some of the story? I'm really good at it. I'm doing a completely novel style CYOA at the moment called 'steam'. I'd really be a big help. Please? I won't add any creations if I do. :)

Sorry, the general storyline has already been made.

So I'm assigned with building "future" MOCs with a story?

If so, I'm great with character development and stories.

Yeah, it's more "near-future" than "future" though (things like hovercrafts will exist, but architecture style is more modern than futuristic and things like time machines don't exist.)

K.

My next question; will there be a scenario that you'll put out? Or can we just make it up and start building?

P.S This is right up my alley; Least the hover cars are,lol...

Yes, there will be a general scenario; you'll see more in 2-4 weeks when the normal contests begin (the first contest is kind of like a prologue, you'll see more on Saturday...)

A bit. There are no freebuilds, and you can only build your character intro and for the challenges,

I've needed a cause to build near-future for quite some time... But with the Turney and christmas and all coming up, I'v got plenty of stuff planned out... I'll see if I find the time.

Here's a question, will this be character-based like LOM or more random, say like the Mocolymics?

This will be character based, with the challenges focusing around your character.

I'm going to go ahead and ask - what gave you the idea for this group? LOM, one of its elders or another source entirely?

In that case, I'll have to decline your offer of invite. I'm really busy, and my strengths are not in buildings (unless they're LDD). Next time you have a story-based contest, give me a shout to help out. :)

LDD is probably going to be allowed. (Plus the contests won't be too restrictive, so you'll be able to build vehicles and such instead of buildings...)

Considering that the admins have said there won't be free builds I don't see why extra plot points should be included.

Well, I have plenty of experience in that...

OK, so I saw the first challenge. And it seems kind of hard to introduce your character in that way. When will we introduce our character? On a more random note...
Is this style too futuristic?

This won't be my entry, of course, but I was just wondering...

Character intros are actually in the second challenge (first challenge has nothing to do with your character; it takes place about 10 years before the main story).
That style may be a bit too futuristic, but it's pretty open, as long as you do something that's not medieval or anything you should be fine.

There goes my entry. Would steam- or diesel-punk work? I take it that magic is not encouraged? Are we really trying to be realistic or can we go for goofy? Also, can I suggest you invite one Ryan Kayton? He likes to build cities in microscale.

1. Yes, that would work, feel free to be as creative as possible
2. Yep, keep magic to a minimum (none) if possible. There's a bit in the storyline, but very little.
3. Depends on which you prefer.
4. Will do, thanks for the suggestion.

So if I don't compete in the first round, will I be able to compete in the future? I really liked the micro-city idea, I just don't have the time.
