Legendary Sword

I would like to introduce a powerful magical sword in Legonia (but not an ordinary magical one)
A sword that saved kingdoms, defeated kingdoms, a reason to start war but the eventually only lends its powers for the Good
I'm not going to just include that in my moc as it is such heavy addition to Legonia,
So let's discuss,
who made the sword ? what did it do in Legonia's history already ? who owned the sword ? who did before ? when did it get lost ? who found it again ?
The last question I would like to answer with the hero I'll introduce (well, it's not he who finds it but someone else who has kept it hidden and finally gives him the sword along with a big task, whoever that 'someone else' is can be determened here aslo)

For the looks of the sword I had though of the swords from the Viking sets, they have this fantasy look.

Now if the sword doesn't fit in Legonia that's ok, I would understand, I don't want to rush things in Legonia

The next big "Event" in history would be the rush for the eastern continent for gaining power. Your sword idea could be a second thing happening on the "old" world. We're in unwritten present now, so all is possible. You want a source in history?
Well, possible backgrounds/events:
-Something with the dragon rush (elves/dwarven era)
-Dragon war (Dragon empire vs. Lion kingdom, maybe one of the kings created it to overpower his army, maybe Merlin [or did i call him Linmer? Have to check), the first blue mage himself. Powerful and legendary enough to doing so.
-History of the Ark'thol Empire is mostly open and includes many little wars, maybe the sword is a weapon of one of the gods and belonged to a high priest?
-The recent history about skelleton army and Orcs is well known and a sword doesn't fit here.

How about this,
races and creatures making the sword together, all using their speciality,
even the Dragon, who provided the heatest flames able to melt the hardest metal (in my story the dragon will claim the sword, he doesn't like lending its power)
Dwarven blacksmiths proved their incredible skills, magicans (Elves, mages, and the first blue mage himself (great idea) infused the sword with powerfull magic.
and as a final addition a mysterious light shines upon the sword, coming from the gods showing their approval and respect to the united races and creatures. What power the Gods have infused in the sword is not clear, it is probably a blessing yet a curse upon the wielder (I was thinking of this; the wielder must unite the world if it isn't, or something like that)

Ofcourse, many tribes want to claim the sword but especially the Dragon, who is the only witness of the making of the sword who's still alive, he's still furious about others taking advantage of its unique ability, the Fire so hot it can melt everything. But at the same time he fears the sword, the sword has the power to defeat him, the main reason he wants the sword is to hide it so it can't be used against him


Anyway, I was thinking of making the whole sword-making process in my creation (the story might consist out of several pages)
the first page will be the history of the sword

I could imagine a storyline which combines my new projects with yours, but there are still holes to fill:
-about 940o.C.:The sword was made from the fire of dragonia vulcania to give power over dragons, (to kill or control them? Was it created by elves to win the war or something more complex which influenced the war? Edit: good idea about the different races)
-After that war, the fire elves were corrupted by the powers of the artifact and so, the elven tribes banned them. They had to leave the continent.(happenings should be something real strange to explain why a complete race is banned/ what happened to the sword?)
-15xx o.C.: The blue mage Merlin searches for the powerful sword to serve King Torkash's dragon empire army, or he sent some people to that search. Something happened and the sword was found but never reached the kingdom. It disappeared.
-1648o.C./ 0 n.C.: The present, in the new age, the king's of the western continent discovers the east. There, the fire elves get contact to their old, long forgotten home and somehow they get a tip, that the sword isn't at the elves anymore and where it is. They may travel west to get it because they want to use it in another war or to rise their current but not that strong kingdom. Epic events are rolling on which can be told in different mocs or adventures.

Just some basic ideas, you can add more or propose something different.

Maybe a bit later,
1500 o.C.
Merlin has grown old but his magical powers and wisdom grew stronger,
he wants to use his power to do good so he organizes a meeting between skilled and wise individuals from all over, he does that very discrete, only few know about the meeting.
The meeting takes place in a cave/island/rock in the Bay of Eternity.
They combine their powers to forge a sword that would end wars and protect from evil,
it takes months (maybe a year) to make the sword.
The batking is also witness, when the Sword was finished he agreed to hide it inside his tower fortress until it was needed.
The Batking was obsessed by the sword and isolated himself from the outside world. When his Fortress was under attack, he died and the sword dissappeared,
Merlin died in the meantime but he might have left clues and notes about the sword to help others find it and understand its importance.
All other Forgers died also, except for one, the Dragon, He kept hidden for a long time and awaited his chance to claim the sword but he couldn't find it...
years passed, the dragon didn't forgot about the sword but eventually gave up searching. Later many heard the tales and searched for the sword to use it's powers for their own good, they believed the sword would make them win battles and gain control but no one found it and it became legend...

Present time !
An old blacksmith tells his apprentice about the meeting in the Bay of Eternity (most believe it's just legend). He ends his story by showing his apprentice the sword, he kept it hidded for a long time but he sensed the sword wanted to give it to his apprentice to forfill a task
Armed with the sword the apprentice goes on a quest and so on

Also possible except one thing:
The batking would never help or support any magicans because he fought them (witch wars). That's the reason why the land is cursed today: many powerful people got murdered brutally. Alternative, he could have stolen the sword and killed most of the creators except Merlin and the dragon. Merlin tried to escape or at least wrote hints of the happening.
For information: the bat kingdom existed between 1598-1629. Merlin died in the 1600's, so in the first 10 years of batlord's empire.

You can do that, but personally i would prefer something more old, so we have a long forgotten tale, which becomes actual now. If you want to start 1500 something different should happen between sword making and bat lord.

hey guys i got this great idea of how fire elves got there powers:they got there powers from dragons,at first they were jsut a small tribe of elves with no name(probably a mixture of all the elves).then the dragons gave them powers so they could become a bigger tribe of elves.and the legendary sword corrupted them(like cristian suggested).how do u guys like this idea?if u dont like it forget i even mentioned it.:)

With or without sword, i like it because it explains the firething and why the fire elves has to left the continent. Maybe they also betrayed the dragon and caused their bloody revenge.

ok, you're right, a legend should be something from long ago,
I want a wise mage on the sword, do you have any suggestions for an earlier mage ?

oh, and about the fire elves, maybe they where the only race who didn't got an invitation for the meeting and when they later found out they wanted revenge, they might find an ally, the dragon, who wants the sword very badly but doesn't want to face the one wielding it.

The main power of the sword is that it only lends its powers for the Good, for example, if an evil person would wield the sword and have evil intentions, the sword would feel very heavy in his hand, the sword would struggle,
only those with good intentions will experience the sword as 'featherlight'.
So it can't really corrupt anyone (btw, that reminds me of the story of Soul Edge)
Though a lot of people are interested in the sword because that power to do good is thought as a story to tell childred to do good, no one actually believes that

All right,
so the meeting takes place at the Bay of Eternity, let's say in 1000 o.C.
there are humans, elves, dwarves and a dragon (the fire elves weren't invited)
is there any other race I might have forgotten ?
and is the bay of eternity in 1000 o.C. ok ?

Make it 1007+, so nearly after the battles between dwarves, elves and dragons. The time would be great, because the dragon may help to prevent another war with this sword, which just can do good. So the ceremony is the first work of all intelligent races after years of being enemies.
Around that time, all cultures existed but humans had just small settlements, so make them poor in your comics, not in modern armors. They are a young race in that time.
Aside, i wouldn't use other races, they are not popular or friendly in that era. Goblins, maybe (Harry Potter figures/Yodaheads).

excellent, so the there will be dwarfs, elves, a dragon and less-mighty humans taking part,
I think a wise magician (maybe someone who had taken a neutral position during the wars, a friend of all) should lead the ceremony, since humans are still a small race the mage should probably be an elf, is that right ?

other than that I think it's settled
I'm working on another small project first and I'll probably take my time to do this though some big parts are already built

that might be interesting, how does a fire elf look ?
if I include them, they will be like this;
a tribe that is frustrated because they we're excluded from the secret meeting of all races (where the sword was made) because of that they want the sword and will form opponents to the hero (in my story)

I've already started building on the first chapter of the story and I can still include the Fire elves,

All right, the hero can start its quest,
nwo for the next part I need a castle wall (around a town)
the hero left its home (at the edge or just outside the middle kingdom)
he will cross the middle kingdom to the big river
but on the way lots of things happen

Now what's the most likely location of a huge defense wall in the middle kingdom ?
(Villagers can easely go through the gates but there are soldiers checking for smugglers)

I was thinking of Blueheaven, it seems to be the best location to find a way to cross the big river
is it possible that Blueheaven has castlewalls around it ?

Definately yes. Because i'm still planning to build Blueheaven one day as main diorama but need more bricks to do it (just build a third of the church, one ship, the fortress and some houses, not the wall yet). All main cities of the shires do have walls but ther're also many small villages i didn't mention anywhere. Blueheaven has a classic grey wall, a church, a port with many ships and an old fortress but for now you can build it how you want. Just be sure that it uses colour shemes and structures fitting to Crownies or better classic Lionknights.

a grey wall wall was my plan,

I think I'll add some more info on my first chapter, like the reason why the sword is being made (to wars after the battles between dwarves, elves and dragons) and I'll change 1000 oC in 1008 oC so it actually fits

btw, there another thing, about wizards,
how long does a wizard live ?
I don't mean to keep my wizard alive but I was just wondering because they are different from humans

Depends on their powe, i would say. At least more than 100 years (Merlin died 80 years after he became advisor of the king). Let's say, naturally 100-200 years, maybe more if they're pacting a demon or something unnatural.

ok, he died anyway.

I must make a good order in which stones the hero finds first because legonia is big,
I've written down some possible locations for the elemental stones;

-One is already in the hero's possession,
-one is with the fire elves ( but I don't know yet where exactly that is),
-one deep in an abondoned dwarven mine in the north,
-one somewhere in the elven Forests,
-one high in the Yeti mountains (I know a way to keep him warm)
-one on the bottom of a lake, maybe a bay,
btw, I noticed you updated the intro page, I had actually settled the gathering in the Bay of Eternety but I noticed you wrote Bay of Ark'tohl, so just to be sure which one do you prefer ?
whatever you say, it's fine for me.

-there's also another stone in human possesion but I don't know yet in which kingdom
-and the last stone I don't know yet, I suppose it will be in the Dragon's possesion since I want my hero to fight it

It might be a bit exaggerated
but I though about hot air balloons, like those typical steampunk creations.
Ofcourse that's quite some technology so I'm not sure it would fit well in Legonia.
It would be a very simple balloon,
It consists out of a boat with a balloon and to produce hot air there is a small stove.
btw, now that I think about it, a balloon might be an ideal vehicle for Fire elves, since they are skilled with fire, maybe the fire elves are the only race capable of handling a balloon

and that might actually fit in the story since my hero is going to meet fire elves...though I don't really think the fire elves are prepared to help the hero :p

what do you think about the balloon ?

you could have my character,inferno lord help your hero.remember,my ide was hes an outcast of the fire eles,so hes not like most fire elves.if you cant use the character because you dont know whta he looks like,you can make your own design.im still workingon what he should look like,so im open to ideas.just remember,he must have fire elf type clothes,and he is a ranger type of character(think aragorn or faramir from lord of the rings).he always changes his outfits(some say its because someone is looking for him).as for his weapons,well he always has a bow or crossbow,has either 1 sword or more,or 1 dagger or more,or a sword and a dagger.inferno lord could also join your hero,if you want.

good idea,
but it's a long way before the hero reaches the fire elves,
a lot of chapters.
Anyway, about his weapons, I actually wanted a fire elf using actually fire power, like fire bending in avatar, he should also handle the balloon using his fire control ability, so I wasn't really planning to equip the joining fire elf with additional weapons.

here are the possible characters who will join the hero;
a Forest elf (will have a bow as weapon)
a woman of the Scorpion emirates
a Fire elf
and some other characters who won't follow the hero all the time,

maybe the forest elf and fire elf will have a fight during the journey
but that's for later.
First the hero's going to the middle kingdom, over the big river, through the Elven Forest in the sands of Ark’thol desert to the Bay of eternity (and I believe there's a small mountain between the last two too)
In the Bay of eternity will rest the sword.

That's the only part I've written yet,
what will happen next isn't really decided yet.
Though I have an idea about a very wize forest elf capable of locating objects of the one who search them is willing enough and honest.
or something like that...

well, I supposed one doesn't need a bow if he can fire fire,
the main reason why I wouldn't want to give him any weapons extra is because the other characters already carry various weapons,
like a forest elf who will be using a bow mostly.

Another thing is that they would share their weapons,
there might be a point in the strory where they're going back to the Elven Forests and to prevent trouble the fire elf will use another weapon (in case of Elvish witnisses)
like a bow lend from another character.

I don't know, that female shadow elf is for later, maybe for someone else to write a story about,
the fire elf being an outcast is handy for my series because it makes it less complicated for the hero to get in possesion of an element stone,
but the fire elf must be quite a typical fire elf too, otherwise the story would be confusing with too much info.

But I do have an idea,
the fire elf won't always follow the hero, at a certain point he leaves the group and gets back to his home.
and maybe at a later stage of the series, the hero will meet him again and he'll have a Shadow elf compagnion.
but that's for later, a lot later actually,
for now I'll just try to get my hero to the bay of Eternity to retrieve the sword, that will take maybe 4 or 5 chapters
here's the plan,
Chapter 1 : Entering Blueheaven
Chapter 2 : Crossing the Big River
Chapter 3 : Meet the Great Elf (this is a very special character in the Elven forest)
Chapter 4 and 5 ; I don't know yet how to organize but one thing's sure, the hero will go from the Elven Forest to the Ark'tohl desert to the Bay of Eternity.
And this first big part of the series will end with the retrieval of the Sword.

the second big part will start with a small piece of history (more specific about the element stones which the hero will have to find)

I'm excited. The elves have elder councils, so the great elf could be part/leader of the highest or so.
In the desert they may could be catched by slave traders, sold and brought to the south to work in a diamond mine in the jungle or so, where they break out on the way (with that Emirate's girl you mentioned). The travel throught the desert would be easy and quick that way (one episode for the slavery ending in the mine and one for the escape). After that, they go aside the coast or the mountains but not through the Forgotten kingdom. (I'm still developing some stuff about for the next months)

Is there a main villain group yet or one for every region? Just mention if you plan to use some kings or higher nobilities.

In the first part there won't really be a villain group,
some creatures in the Elven Forest and slave traders in the desert,
the group won't get caught though, they will escape through the desert with a guide (the emirate's girl) so they'll have to hurry through the desert.

For the next parts I thought about several villain groups,
like a small Ork invasion (a small band of orks whose ship has been destroyed)

And there will be a human too, a rich human with a lot of soldiers at his service, he wants the element stones too.
who he is and where he comes from is not yet determined,
so if you have any suggestions...
only the first part has been written and being prepared,
the following parts can easely be adjusted

-water
-wind ( but it also stands for speed and agility)
-earth
the last 4 stones are a bit difficult,
I thought about;
-a protective power (but I don't know how to call it)
-a power that makes the sword shine and sharpen its edges to an extreme to make it able to even make the air bleed (in a matter of speaking)
the last two I haven't decided yet but Mana is very interesting,
a power within, can be very useful,

You can go on with your five elements, because the other three I'm using aren't really elements.
When the sword's power was split, the ancient elements where infused in 5 stones (each element a stone) and the remaining three stones where infused with the fysical characteristics of the sword (those where mostly caused by a certain material that had been used during the forging)

Btw, I love the trailer

Ok, sounds all good. For the mana: If the stone have power over that element, it could make the sword able to defend any magical spells. Maybe your hero will met an evil mage somekind and holds a fireblast back with it or something.

The sword itself will test its wielder's power within,

Which stone does the hero start out with, and how did the man who gave him to it get it? The 8th stone could cause the sword to break magical items and barriers, possible drain creatures or things?

The hero now has the stone of light, where it was found I don't know yet :p (it will make the sword light as a feather an let the sword glow with some mystic light, though you won't see that :p )

Anyway, actually all stones provide some kind of protection and though you can't really attack with 'protection' it sure is a powerfull ability,
the kind of protection the sword can offer is a strong one, in its full state it is able to protect against any magic, curse and cannot be corrupted in anyway.

The hero is no magician, mage or wizard, he has practically no real magic powers so he's an easy target for enemy magical creatures.
But the sword grants him magical protection and that makes him able to do great thing as a small human and present the most Powerfull magic that actually everyone has, The power within.

In the series it will become clear that the sword can actually convert inner power in other forms of magic,
this is one way the sword tests its wielder.

the sword doesn't lend its power to everyone,
like in the series a mean person will get its hands on the sword but will leave it behind because he can't carry it, it will be too heavy for him, while the hero has no problem wielding it, it is as light as a feather for him.
so the sword has some kind of will,
anyway, I won't get time to finish a chapter before februari...

I just hope, by all these powers, there will be a fitting threat, so the hero won't have it easy. I imagine Legonia filled with conspiracies and evil groups.

Nevermind, i'm sure, it will be great and wait until you're finished. It would be a great start of real Legonia comics, i may do one too one day. 2011 or 2012 because my few free time with Lego is still spent to my sci-fi comic, wich have to be finished first. So you're my main story runner now ;) Of course, new background will come from me and some mocs.

Oh, I remember you said you want to use amazones maybe. They'll have several groups of explorers seen around the world as some kind of their warrior training. They don't like men much, especially old ones because fighting the druids, aside you can use them free.

I'm finding some time lately, time to work out idea's and such,
I've practically written the first part completely,
here's in short Chapter 1;

a young man (boy) leaves for a quest and goes from his small village to Blueheaven, but the guards won't let him through the gates, appearently something happened in the city and the guards are given orders not to let any suspicious character into the city (the boy is suspicious because he wields a sword and doesn't say what his purpose is)
so the boy turns back, gets into trouble outside the city walls, saves a girl, and eventually he decides to climb the wall on a certain place where the guards can't see him climbing.
Inside the city he tries to keep a low profile, most people are acting rather strange (it won't get clear what exactly happened in Bleuheaven though) Eventually he gets in the house of the girl he saved earlier, there is some chat (maybe there's more :p ) and the boy stays for the night.

So, there's no serious action scene in this first chapter but I've prepared some very detailed builds to attract a lot of viewers.

Now there is actually one issue I haven't brought up yet,
the name of "the Hero" , "the boy", "the young man" ,...
I think I'll just call him Sebeus :p
what else ?
anyway, I can start shooting in two weeks

it is evident that all mocs in this group should be connected to Legonia.

Well, it's a giant forest with trees, plants, creatures and 4 elven tribes living in. Examples you find in the elven mocs on my page.

As Sebeus said, Legonia is an open world project, so feel free to develop it an add your stuff. The background i invented is very basic. But Legonia mocs must fit with the official Legonia background from the wiki. There are enough groups for castle and fantasy in general but what's here is working in one conjoint world (Like Mythada or Corhaven).

I like the Agami personally, but I also like the 'Templa' fish-people.

I would probably do Templa though. He'd be a part shark sentry scout. (his weapon of choice: throwing axes.)

now for a name....

How about Naden? I like it.

Still don't get it. Where's the problem of creating own characters? BTW, a sig-fig is just "your" personal character if you want to be someone in your own story/universe. So the only sig-figs i have are my avatar and my BotB character Tadith, but i create many characters in all my universes. In Legonia, these would be the celebrities like kings, mages or the gods because i am the creator of it.

And of course, you can't use the big something in a storyline. According to Wikilegonia it isn't even a real person, it's the creation's force. But to answer Sebeus, the fig of it is this:

Mh, ther're some alternates for forest elves like this: http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=973px119 but i can't search anything, experiment or if nothing looks accurate (brown/green/robe/leather/forest life wildly stuff) make him member of another elventribe e.g. Riverelves or Shiarasin. I made these because i don't have much of one torso style myself ;)

Loss of character ideas? Mh, that's bad. Normally my characters always come from the story itself. Ask yourself: What do i need?
1) Is your project action-focused make a brave soldier/ honorable paladin/ wild warrior outsider living in the forests...
2) A adventure-story like a treasure hunt always works best with normal people who aren't born as heros. Like a young boy who wants to be like the big soldiers/ a crazy thief, a knowlegde-searching traveller/monk/mage or just a feared strong-believing farmer hunting for his love and then jumping into the adventure.
3)For political and dialogue things you'll need at least 1-2 wise men, who have knowlegde about the world like a mage/ an aristocrate(middle Kingdom has many noble families)/ corrupted merchant boss etc.

Finally, give all of them strengths and weak points, allmighty superheroes are boring. And maybe less is more. Nothing is worse than a big bunch of non-characterized guys running around. A small group of different characters works best or maybe you want to focus on just one hero?

Just take a look to other succesful comics like Nufalak's work or my sci-fi project how it's done.

But you know, Legonia is just fantasy? The demon background is an important part because they'll be the villains, or better their followers because demon gods were banned long ago. If we're offend you, sorry, but you should read the religion topic in our wiki. For Legonia i use a mix of different earth religions, the big something e.g. is like christianity and sometimes more buddism (e.g. elves), the southern gods based on roman or greek mythology. The demons stand for all evil in the people and seduce them to regain their power. That's nothing different than christian mythology. And i mean, we already have undead etc. which is satanic, too. Fantasy is mostly a parable for the real world splitting good and bad behaviour into different races/factions. That's also the reason why Harry Potter isn't bad because ther're social sorcerers and those elitists hating the "muggles", who are different. Ignoring the evil doesn't help to defeat it, because it's still part of the world and so of Legonia, too.

eating spinal cords . . .
that is quite horrorfying, but I think it's good, it strikes fear with the human race,
btw, I'm not really a religious type, in my point of view religions have always been a main cause of bloody wars and pain,
but I'm not going to discuss that since mankind has this typical characteristic when it comes to their believes, everyone believes he is right :p so such discussion would be pointless.

Anyway, remember that christianity refers to mankind so demons and creatures are not part of it
and like Christian said; this is a fantasy world
