Hey, R.K. In one of your recent episodes you mentioned that some of the bombs in Old Qoter had not exploded, could some of them have exploded later?

We do indeed! Scarlet city is one and I'm sure we've had at least one more named, but I can't think of the names off the top of my head. Try checking the Planets Thread. And also remember that all of the cities on Rerador are underneath protective dome shields because of the atmosphere.

Iad' has reminded me that the other one is New Arcaldia.

As an aside, we technically have three, The Scarlet City, New Arcaldia, and, well, regular plain ole' Arcaldia. But Arcaldia is basically a giant ruined husk where nobody goes. [IAD]

Nope. You can if you want to, but you don't have to. You can drift from side to side or just do your own thing. Be a bounty hunter or something like that. Or a smuggler. As for mustard strawberries - none. I don't like mustard and I don't like strawberries.

If you still need someone, Commander Kendall Andreasson would work. She's not overly fond of people doing things that aren't ethical, but since she's the Imperium officer working most closely with The Collective (indeed, she often sits on Collective High Council Meetings) it sounds like a role she may be suited for.

It was abandoned after the Shift. During the Shift, a huge fissure opened up and spewed toxic gasses into the air. (If I remember correctly.) However, since then, people have returned to pillage and plunder etc.

There are some organized groups. A marauder group could be a ship's crew or similar to the claws of etrion. As for size, I think the claws are fairly large but a ship's crew would be smaller.

Right;

The Collective are, RK and I have decided (after Googling the term!) henotheistic. They worship Deja, he is considered their primary god, but they don't necessarily believe that he is omniscient, the only, single, god, so there may be other beings that exist (or don't exist, no one knows if Deja is real) and are equal in power.

As for the headmaster, we do have plans for him, but not much. Feel free to drop me an email at isaac.bliss4@gmail.com if you'd like to talk about him, since I don't see why you couldn't use him.

Well... at the moment this gang is the beginning of this mysterious character's army they're building against the Collective, and they'll probably be working in relative obscurity, avoiding hitting major GI outposts and avoiding publicity as much as possible until they've gained a large enough soldiers, funding, and equipment to pose a significant threat. The gang itself can be seen in episode 4 of season 1. I suspect if they were engaging in any shady deals it would be for weapons, money, ossimilium, ships, forging alliances with other gangs, etc. They'll probably resurface in my series later this month, or in February to stir up some trouble with the G.I, or with the Collective (Though I doubt it since the Collective is far too powerful for the gang to raid.)

Ah, that's quite thought out. What I was going to have them doing is trading a datapad with some info on this lady http://www.moc-pages.com/image_zoom.php?mocid=430633&id=/user_images/100638/14682360621 with some other gang for money.

Okay. This is no big deal at all in fact I find it hilarious but there's a typo in my name on the "leader board." It says Jack "Brickington" instead of Brickton. The funny thing is that I originally planned on naming my Character that when I first created him back in 2014 on the Lego Gallery but I made an error and typed Brickton. So it's a typo of something that originated as a typo. If it could please be fixed that would be great.

FB just means Freebuild (one of the different types of episode entries.) You'll find a complete guide in the FAQ thread. As for what is going on, in summary, the GI are still at war with Aurelia and the Marauders are still doing whatever they want. The Collective are allied with the GI. For a better idea of recent events though, as others have suggested, read through recent challenges and entries, as well as the Timeline, which can be found in the FAQ thread. Hope this helps!

Alright. I have some confusion regarding the planet Rerador. On the main page it says "A colonial planet of Qoter. Really evil looking planet, etc" and the faction is Neutral/GI. But just down from that on the list of Planets & moons in order from sun outwards says Aurelia. (I think you can see what the problem is.) I'm assuming this means that they both have colonies on it?

monthly challenge builds have to include your character having something to do with one of those events.

1. I'd imagine your idea is to join the galactic imperium and then change? Well just join the group you are going to change to, I think. But be whatever faction you want in your first stories until you change. But if I were you I wouldn't keep leaving and joining and re-joining the faction's Mocoages groups.

2. No clue

3. Depends. If your forcing your religion on others, that's a no no. In fact, I imagine many would rather religion not be mentioned at all. But if one of your characters works as a preist or is in a church or whatever that's ok.

When you say "strong" religious content, what exactly do you have in mind?

Questions are good! I'm glad everybody has been helping you out.

1. If you've not yet posted an intro, feel free! If you have, then you still can but we'd just rather you didn't.

2. Cyborgs are around but the public don't have a great like for them. They're still pretty uncommon and have a bad habit of going insane, so people don't trust them.

3. Don't force a religion up others but it is fine for your character to be religious / for you to feature religion in your series as long as it is justified. We actually have plans for a religious-themed arc coming up as a GC in the future!

Basically, that means that if you're inactive for over 3 months, we (the staff) can do whatever we like with your characters (if we want to) until you return to the game. So, as Kermunk' hasn't been around for more than 3 months, Max and his other characters essentially are controlled by us now. So, if you'd like to feature him, just ask. (I'll take your initial question as you being asking - so yes, you can have Max cameo in your next episode! Haha.)
