Roughly 11 meters per second... Or 36 feet per second for all the Americans... Except for myself who prefers the metric system.

is that an African or European Swallow?

Welcome aboard Mate! Nice to see some more Gallerians migrate over to the pages. And I personally recommend the Marauders, like I've said before (at some point) with the marauders you have more freedom storywise. "you can be sided with the GI one day, with Aurelia the next, and then betray them both and blow up a space station!"

But then again, same applies to the collective.

And the Collective could use some more members, if you don't mind my saying so.xP

This is important to mention, I think.*Clears throat*

If Illn means all in the Singer's language, then literally speaking the word Ill'ana means all full. With this implication, the amounts section would read thus:
Amounts:
Less Sape
More Liish
(all) Full Ill’ana
Half full Sil’ana
Empty (full) Cral’ana
All Illn
None Cran

Which leads to the conclusion that the conjugation "ana" means full. Right?

The Metric system is superior, by far. Apart from being recognised as international standard, it just makes more sense.

Also, the Imperial system originated in England, so is it really patriotic for an American to support it?

Unless you're English, in which case it make sense...

Quick question, can someone please explain the collective's religion?

Iris's would be the best person to ask about that, but I'll see what I can do. Basically, for the most part, their religion is worship the 'god' Dej'a, which translates to 'death' in their language. Some of the more fanatical ones are known as the Screamers of Dej'a. However, it's more or less faded out of Collective culture and a more agnostic worldview taken...

Erm...at least, I think that's right. IAD?

Yeah, they follow the god Deja. A priest of Deja always sits on the Collective High Council; the current one is Father Ajwain. In the Collective Colonies there is a planet that's essentially the Collective version of Vatican City, where All Father Cherwin lives, the current High Priest and head of The Faith. Everything is essentially done in Deja's name, but many in the Collective harbour doubts about the existence of a deity, and others view Deja as more of a passive thing, like death itself. Yeah, 'Wolff basically covered it :P [IAD]

I'm fairly sure they can communicate with a single non-collective human as well, one of the crossover episodes of the War of London showed Eris telepathically talk to Tank. I don't remember whether or not they can communicate back though. But yes, they can talk to each other telepathically.

Well, there are a few problems with that. One, something of that size would take several decades to build, the public would revolt because let's be honest who'd support a government Death Star? Then, Aurelia could easily blow it up before it was finished and it'd be wasted funds that could be used on fighter ship designs and battle cruisers. Plus, i thought we tried to steer clear of overpowered weapons But since it was revealed in the recent crossover that the Collective Spire is basically a Death Star style station it might not be the case anymore. So I'll let the Admins answer this one..

(On a side note the revelation on the Spire makes me wonder if it was behind the destruction of Tolterros. But only time will tell I suppose..)


Yeah the thing with the Spire came out of nowhere is there going to be a follow up to that or.. :p

No, and I don't think they ever would. Though the Spire has similar capabilities, it was built by an ancient race of people who've spent centuries traversing the universe and who have practically limitless power. As jack said, if the Imperium were to ever build something of the same scale it would be way to expensive and take far too long without facing some Aurelian retaliation.

If the Imperium wanted a Death Star they could just overwhelm the Collective (by convincing the other factions that the Collective is their common enemy, no doubt with some IIA work to frame them[Because they seem legit enough to get away with that.].) and take the Spire.

Nope! First or third is allowed, whatever you prefer. Past tense is more common, but again if you prefer present tense, go for it! The only rule is that no Insurgency episode can be set in the future (minus the obvious 80 years), and that's about it!

Yeah, as everyone has said;

1.) We try to stay away from things like this just because we don't want to be too similar to Star Wars.
2.) It would take too long to build, cost too much money and nobody would support it. Therefore, it would never get built.
3.) Yes, the Spire has a giant laser, but again, it was built an incredibly long time ago and not by the Imperium.
4.) The only other super-weapon we have in TI is the ship that destroyed Tolterros, but that vanished right after it was used and nobody is allowed to use it for future story reasons.

So yeah. No Death Stars please. Haha!

With regards to The Spire's superlaser; it isn't a Death Star gun, it wouldn't simply blow up a planet, but at full power it would hit with the force of thousands of nuclear bombs and effectively crack a planet's crust.

Well that debunks my speculation about the spire being the ship that blew up Tolterros.

Still, I assume you and IAD have something awesome involving it planned for the future...

And while I'm on the subject of husk. I was wondering, has anyone actually ever shown the reapers before in an episode?

It was a nice theory, but no. haha! And yes, we have stuff planned!

As for the Reapers, yes. This is from the Species Directory:

Species Name: The Reapers

Homeworld: Husk

Features: Yellow eyes, rotting skin, often wear facial markings.

Example: http://img.brickowl.com/files/image_cache/larger/lego-gundabad-orc-bald-with-armor-minifigure-25.jpg

Originally Created By: R.K. Blast
Appearance Created By: Geoffrey Welch

Notes: Although technically humans, after the destruction of Tolterros, the few who survived turned feral amid the nuclear waste and now these beasts are all that remain. They live among the asteroid field and pray upon any who venture inside, although there have also been rumors of cannibalism. Not much is know about them in general, as they are widely regarded as a myth and anybody who sets eyes on them usually ends up never seeing anything ever again...

So there you go. :)

Hey mate, thanks for the input! To answer your question about the lack of certain basic words, it's mostly because the Collective language has become more fuelled by intent than specifics.

This means that the sentences would be shortened. For example:

Specific sentence: "Kill this man with fire."
Words said: "Fire Death" or "Kill Fire"

Specific sentence: "Use the air to push these intruders away!"
Words said: "Air Push"

This is why a lot of the basic day to day words are missing, as they aren't really needed. The words form the foundation of the Mage's action, and their thoughts or intent provide the detail.

As for the plural possessive, I believe is may be because the language works differently than those on Earth. The 'L' plural may be specific to individuals, but the 'N' may be more specific to crowds.

Anyways, hope this helps and again, thanks for the questions! :)

It should have at least some Lego in it if it's going on mocpages

Well, I mean, I knew that.xP I'm just asking if I can get away with just having, like, two to four pics for certain episodes (Most likely the entire first season/chapter.xP). I can do it the other way, but it would take forever to get just one episode. Either this or I'll just survive between GCs till I can get more access to my collection.xP

So, is the comic book style writing required? That is, depicting the action with mostly pictures rather than mostly words. Because my life has a way of keeping me from my Lego for long periods of time.:P

As Kenbo said, some aspect of Lego should be included, but if you prefer more text over images then go for it! There's no explicit rule that the 'comic' style has to be followed, only that some Lego images are used at some point.

Old *Qoter* is an ancient underground city that used to be what Qoter was. It lies beneath New Qoter, which is the Qoter we all know and love. New Qoter is also supported by many structural supports beneath the surface. Why Old Qoter was abandoned, along with who built it, is still a bit of a mystery for the moment.

Well,*Cracks knuckles* Let's review it versus reality here and you might just see where I'm coming from.xP In the review below, I've included the real world ranks of the United Kingdom Army followed by their typical command size or appointment in brackets [] in between the ranks of the Imperium.

• Citizen: You are not officially a part of the Galactic Imperium. You can still go on adventures, take part in challenges, and fight against the other factions. You also have the option of just hanging out, having a normal job, and doing normal things. Your choice!

• Private – 20 Points: You have shown interest in the Galactic Imperium, but haven't done much in ways of joining. Show how you get recruited to the GI, conventionally or not.

[Lance Corporal- Second in command of section, leader of fireteam.]

[Corporal-Generally commands a section.]

• Sergeant – 50 Points: You have become a Private in the GI, and are now getting ready for war. Show you and other troops preparing for battle.

[Colour Sergent-Senior role combining man and resource management in company/battery/ squadron, or serves as platoon commander.]

[Warrant Officer Class 2-Referred to individually by their appointment e.g. Company Sergeant Major. A senior management role focussing on the training, welfare and discipline of company/battery/ squadron.]

[Warrant Officer Class 1-Referred to individually by their appointment e.g. Regimental Sergeant Major. The most senior advisers to battalion commanding officers. Responsibility for discipline and equipment of officers and men.]

[Officer Cadet- No official command.]

[Second Lieutenant-platoon/troop/]

• Lieutenant – 75 Points: You've caught yourself in a bit of a jam. Show yourself acting heroically in the midst of battle.

• Captain – 100 Points: You have moved up the ranks, and have developed quite a reputation for yourself among the GI. Show some of the benefits to having a name for yourself in the Galactic Imperium.

[Major- company/battery/ squadron.]

[Lieutenant Colonel- battalion/regiment.]

[Colonel- battalion/regiment.]

[Brigadier- brigade or director on staff.]

[Major-General- division.]

[Lieutenant-General- corps.]

• General – 200 Points: You have now reached the top of the line. You can't get anymore power within the GI, and you know it. Show yourself using the power you have gained for the good of the people.

[Field Marshal- Assigned rank in times of war, not normally used otherwise.]

Besides the fact that the G.I. is an amalgamation of several countries, the sheer size of the Imperium would mean that the rankings would need to be simplified.

Also, the chain of command has been updated. New ranks are listed below:

THE GALACTIC IMPERIUM CHAIN OF COMMAND:

.The Imperium Council. - The entire Imperium is controlled by the Imperium Council. A secretive group of 5 members who control everything that happens.

Here, the chain of command splits into two sections. Military and Political.

MILITARY:

.The Grand Admiral - The Grand Admiral is in charge of the entire Imperium armada. This comprises all spaceships, ground vehicles and soldiers. Everything that the Imperium has to offer.

Then the chain of command divides again into two branches - space and ground.

SPACE:

.Admirals. - There are numerous fleets of spaceships in the Imperium and each fleet is headed by an Admiral.

.Captains. - Each ship in the GI armada has a Captain who controls it, but who answers to the fleet Admiral.

.Lieutenants. - Answer to the ship's Captain.

.Ensigns. - Answer to the ships's Lieutenants.

.Petty Officers. - Ranks 2nd Class, 1st Class and Chief.

.Cadets. - Fresh recruits.

GROUND:

.Commanders. - Usually in charge of an entire Imperium base or region, they are in command of all beneath them.

.Generals. - The next step down from Commanders, but still highly respected and experienced. Usually in charge of the Colonels beneath them.

.Colonels. - Answer to the base's Generals but are still in charge of the Major's beneath them.

.Majors. - Answer to the base's Colonels.

.Sergeants. - Ranks Sergeant and Sergeant Major.

.Corporals. - Answer to the base's Sergeants.

.Privates. - Fresh recruits.

POLITICAL:

.Governors. - Every Imperium-controlled planet has a Governor in charge. They oversee the entire planet and report only to the Imperium Council. Every Governor has his or her own advisers.

.Planetary Secretary. - Every planet has a Secretary in charge of it's affairs and whom answers only to the planetary Governor.

.Senators. - Classes Junior and Senior. These make up the planet's Senate body and are the people who vote on which laws get passed into regulation.

.Government. - Each region of a planet has it's own Government. They decide what is best for their particular region, but cannot make decisions on a grander scale.

.Mayors. - Usually of cities or towns.

.Civilians. - Everybody else under Imperium rule.

Furthermore, there are certain positions that intersect these ranks, such as the IIA director which holds the equivalent rank of a Commander and the Imperial Shock troopers, which rank slightly higher than their trooper counterparts (Shock Private > Private)

Hope this helps clarify things :)

OK, cool... I was thinking that maybe instead of being rare, it's new, and scientists of the varying factions haven't found ways to minimize it into hand-held weapons? Then it would be mostly used for airborne vehicles and large tanks. Dunno, just voicing my thoughts :)

Maybe we should just consider changing the spelling at this point lol

Qoter is 80 years ahead and it's not "owned" by the Imperium but does align with it. I imagine Qoter has traded/shared some of their technology with Earth and the other planets. As for Aurelia having any territory on Earth, I was sort of wondering about that a while ago myself. I think the main armies were pushed off early on so probably not but maybe they could try to recapture parts of Earth? I've also shown Aurelian sympathizers still in South America in one of my earlier episodes. The Imperium's built listening posts around there to make sure they don't become proper Aurelians.

Kenbo basically covered it, but yeah. Remember that Qoter was a society long before the GI came along and took over from the unstable governmental system in place. But a lot of the more useful technology would have been passed on to Earth and the military already. The tech is more of a scale of how advanced Qoter was when the Shift occurred.

Indeed. After the end of The Collective War, the Imperium and the Collective collaborated on a number of projects, including the development of plasma weaponry. This has, unfortunately, come to an end at Eris's command, after the Registration Act passed into law. [IAD]

With One, read this episode of R.k, Iris and my crossover http://www.moc-pages.com/moc.php/434042. That goes over his history, though as of now he's currently deceased so...

As for the ships, as Kenbo said, the numbers don't really matter as they would've run out of supplies by now and lost all hands. However, I'd estimate it to be 25+ ships at the minimum.

Nope, because you don't have to! The only weapons that your main character ISN'T allowed to use right away is Plasma-based / Laser-based weaponry, like Plasma swords and pistols. Anything else (guns, knives, daggers, weird chain bolt pistols) is free game!

However, when you say your character is a high-ranking individual, what rank are you refering to?

We decided that a Governor's term is 4 years. They are allowed to run for as many terms as they like. If a Governor is impeached, it works the same as it does if a Governor dies on duty - the position is offered to the Governor's closest living relative. If they do not want it, then it goes back to square one and potential candidates campaign for the position.
However, just remember; that is the lawful way of doing it. However, the closest relative part has been fairly forgotten about recently.

Uh, hi. It's me again. I decided to return. I need to know more about secondary characters. I couldn't decide what faction to want to join, but finally decided on Aurelia (again). But I also want to have a character or two in the GI, and maybe another in Aurelia.

Is there any Aurelian bases on Earth or Qoter?

Or, I could have him be an undercover operative on Earth, working in the shadows against the GI...

Both planets are under GI control so Aurelia doesn't have much of a presence on them. However they can probably have a secret base or two. One is under construction in Nepal

Okay, then I'll probably have some sort of secret outpost.

You can have as many secondary characters as you want and in whichever factions you want, as long as you have one main character and that is the faction you will earn points for.

As for Aurelian bases, there are none at all on Qoter and the only known one on Earth is currently being built in Nepal, as Kenbo has said.

Okay, that makes it easy. So it's okay to have a small Aurelian outpost on Earth? It would hold my main character and a handful of men.

It would be better if you picked a different planet, really. Earth and Qoter are both heavily GI. Aurelia was routed from Earth a few years back and are only now starting to set up there again.

A couple more questions and I'm set. First, I want to have a high-ranking GI officer. Can he already be important, or should I wait to introduce him until he can have a higher rank? Second, someone told me last time I was here I had to buy laser weaponry, but I don't see any in the shop.

You can have characters of high ranks in your story - just not your main character. Your main character has to start at the bottom and work their way up.
And you can have laser weaponry, but you must purchase any plasma weapons.

What planet is the ROBKAT company based on?

pretty sure this is listed somewhere but I can't seem to find it...

(Also since I've gotten my "other project" up and running you can expect a new episode from me shortly...)

I think the shipyards are in space right? I remember RK showed an attack on them

Right, Season 3 episodes 19 and 20 of Blast's series. I just didn't remember what planet it was closest to. But I looked at the episode again and it mentioned the shipyards being in orbit around Qoter (as I thought).


Thanks for helping me sort this out Capt. I should've just checked the episode to begin with. :P

Yeah, Qoter. Haha.

No explanation needed my friend! He's just stating a theory that may or may not be a fact! Simples.

Hey, so IRL is a person who commits a crime in the US that then went to a country like Venezalua, can't get arrested by the US. Well, what is an Aurelian goes to Earth and makes his way to Switzreland. Can he get arrested by the Impuruim?

I've actually shown a very similar scenario in my episode, Infiltration, (I changed the title because honestly it was a little cringe.....). I decided Switzerland is like a safe haven with its own authorities and the Imperium is not allowed to send an armed force there (though they do anyway)

Yeah, Kenbo's episode pretty much explains it, also I felt hungry after reading the title.

If an item does not appear in the Colelctive thread, it does not exist...

You can make one up for 5 coins but first you'd need 5 coins..
