Dark Augusto Contest!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Join to comment
 Group admin 
Okay, it seems time we had our first contest! I believe Mike(?) brought up this idea. Dark Augusto is a great theme, but lacks a backstory. No one has ever explained the origin of DA or where they come from.

So, the idea of the contest is simple: make a MOC comic or vig(s) that explains the origin of Dark Augusto. Of course whatever you build must stick to the rules of DA. You can include EOS in your story or not as long as it's clear what the story of DA is.

Because we want as many people to enter as possible, and to give you time to think and build, the deadline will be September 1.

Please say here if you wish to enter and give a link to your MOC when it's ready. The winner will recieve an Adminship! Any questions, please ask:) Now go build!

If making me a Mod was an insult to injury, or sarcasm, I'm going to be mad :D

No. You contribute quite a bit to the group and conversation and we can always use more mods:)

SO, back to the orgignal point of this topic: what do you guys think about this contest idea and who wants to enter?

I'll consider it. so there's no backstory whatsoever? that will make it easier, less guidelines.

okay, so I had some questions about this contest, which I asked in my comment on nate's moc, but I'll post them here so they might be answered by an admin.



I'm a little confused. does this play into the contest, or is this a backstory of the war between EOS and DA? is the contest supposed to be about the creation of DA, or about our entry into the war?

About your comment Cody:

My comic explains mostly the war effort because Fed's reason made no sense. It also explains a small tidbit about there actual origins also, you just have to read very carefully. It was my first comic, so no one can be too critical about it.

My comic WILL become official, #2 will probably be up next week. Hopefully.
If you want a spoiler:

Main plot setting/plot of second: Tarkus IV slaughters scout team, moves on to
EOS base, and scene ensues like beginning of 1st Transformers.....

okay, so the contest should be about the actual orgins of DA? (DA+EOS+Transformers=Epic)

I guess. but yeah, The comic starts with slaughtering of EOS scout team Blackhawk, Tarkus IV moves on to a EOS command base, destroys a large tower, EOS forces are spread thin trying to keep Tarkus from capturing an important EOS senator and Embassador. Tarkus fails, and teleports to his capital ship in orbit, he jumps to Zelok leaving the base in ruins.....

whoa, whoa whoa! you're worse than wikipedia with your spoilers! finish the comic first. ;)

Yes, the contest is about the actual origin of Dark Augusto. Panda's comic is more about the beginning of the battle between DA and EOS, but if you wanted to tie in your entry with his story that would be cool.

Fed never wrote a story about where the DA come from. Who built them? Why? Are they just born? What's their purpose, etc. None of this has ever been answered, so I thought this contest would be a good way to explain some things.

I know he never made anything, Mood. I was just reffering to when he said, "We have made a new enemy since other war was getting boring".
That's all.

I wasn't referring to your comic. I like that you explained the war between DA and EOS.
What I'm talking about, is when Fed started this group, he never gave any info, except it's the power of machines and what they can do.
I'd like to see someone post a story (for the contest) that gives some sort of origin story.

I spent the last 2 hours last night (Went to bed somewhere past midnight) trying to make up a part of the story.
I've got how the DA was made, why they fight, and it (Kind of) ties into Panda's story.
I don't know if it's just able to serve as a prologue, though.

Sounds good. I just want to see someone come up with an origin story of some sort.

I'm glad someone finally agreed to my contest! I have built a DA mech. Here's a preview, but I will probably change the name... http://www.flickr.com/photos/40263674@N06/3743868775/
I am already coming up with a backstory. Good luck to all. 8^)

Dang man! Looks like a DA priest or something.

I took pics of it and took it apart. It was really unstable and kept falling apart if you tried to pose it. But have no fear! I have built about 90% of a new mech. It is "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger" than the other one. I just need to come up with about $40 for a bricklink order to finish him and color coordinate the armor. Donations are welcome! 8^)

That was a great 1st entry for the contest. I really liked the ideas in it.

thanks! I was hoping people would enjoy the frankenstein/terminator theme. oh, and nate, I used your robot leader's name 'Tarkus' in it, sorry for not asking (I did give you credit though)

I already talked to Ryan about it. We're gonna keep the groups separate for now. Ryan started a group to discuss the war between the groups. George, you and Aaron and whoever else wants to should join. I'll ask Ryan to send you an invite:)

yeah, since the EOS got active again, it's not really necessary to merge the groups. thanks to ryan as the new EOS admin!
