Joining factions is no longer a thing. You may write stories for whoever you want, no matter what faction they are in.

After all, you can even write stories during the periods where there were no factions!

You may add any/all of your old LOM builds to the group if you would like to keep them canon and part of your primary story. I would advise that you make a story thread and perhaps give an overview of everything you've done so far.

EDIT:

Don't add any old creations to the group yet.

As for your scorecard, you might be able to repurpose it into our new Story-cards. Please read the rules for more info.

Having small doses of religion (a small cult or something) is fine, or if you just wanted to have a "religious building" that would be fine. If you would want to put in a faction-wide religion you would have to come up with something and put it in the Ideas thread.

I believe it simply means that One part of the city is walled in for defense, while the other half is more open, allowing for trade. The outer area is most likely where most homes are, with the wealthier merchants and nobles lived; during times of distress all the people would retreat inside the walled section.

1) I need to figure out what happened to Gilbert's traveling scale... he had one at some point.
2) Probably between 30-40 soldiers and 20-30 archers.
3) I don't believe she was ever a ruler of the city, more of a ranger that defended the city and the surrounding cities. As for her creator (Julia, go figure) she has long been inactive.

1. Can builds from before the remodel be scored in order for a person to qualify for a certain building rank? If so, should those builds be added to the group, or should the person who wants them scored post a link to them somewhere (the ranks/scoring thread?)?

2. Zord is a small town created by a single member over 3 years ago. We don't have an exact location for it. Assuming 75 miles is an accurate assessment and the terrain was unobstructed we'd be talking 3-4 days on horseback or 7-8 days walking.

3. The sort of fact I would have pushed for once upon a time. It's the location of the fleet so one can assume it's relatively, large even for a Mythronian city. I believe Reese must have been confused about what you were meaning. I'll give you the estimate of a few thousand for now. Between 1000 and 5000.

4. Well that would depend if you were referring to JuliA LeeP the inactive LoM member or JuliE L.E.E.P. the LoM character.

5. I refer you to the previous.

6) The Rainosians control Falmor. It was the only major city that they conquered.
7) The 'history' you write may or may not appear on the timeline, but yes you may "fill in the blank" on what happened to your character over this time, within reason.
8) You could, though first you would need permission to use Sadon (a Major Character). To do this you would have to write out how such a relationship would be formed, and then we'll figure out if it is plausible.

No I meant sieges of the cities in general would require approval. Besides, you'd need a larger army attacking since the defenders have the advantage.

Well, I mentioned it earlier and it seemed as though it wasn't disapproved. Then I'll compromise at 2,000.:P

Any of the larger, named ones on the map already have leaders, to my knowledge; any of the smaller ones you could simply invent a councilman in that city. You could also just leave the authorities unnamed. Remember that Nerogue is very justice-driven, so that can play into your story perhaps.

I'm not sure if this helps you, some of Nerogue's smaller towns are already claimed by players. To be specific:
- Ranger Britti (Dengard)
- Reese Hawthorne (Consord)
- Joel Tyer (Galdan)
- Me (Ronck)
- Maybe a few others I missed

There are no rules relating to this. The mediums you are using are plastic bricks or words so there is no way to produce anything graphic enough to warrant concern. Just keep it realistic and/or keep any mess which might distract from a MOC to the minimum.

If your character was pre-established as ruler then you keep that in the story. Your claim to the city is as strong as your identification with the character. :P

Please shorten your comment (it contains the rules a few times over for some reason); it takes up a lot of space!

1. Yes, it refers to ranks you earn within this group.

2. No, you do not (at one point this was true, but not anymore). The only thing you need to check for is whether you are using any Major or Shared characters; you require permission to use them. Feel free, however, to pitch your story ideas to other members (through Google docs, preferably) to get input. It's entirely up to you.

3. No, you do not. In fact, we hope to improve member's building skills by providing specific critique.

I'm just gonna say I'm a little off-balance here. The RPs I lead (check my one creation so far for an example) are a bit different. So please excuse all my questions. I'll post my character soon (once I have a basic story put together for approval). I've got the basics, but I need more specifics before I submit it.


1&2. (see above) (an example of a rank is beginner architect)

3. You can just write if you want. There have been a lot of lower skilled builders in the group over the years and nothing stops you from building too but I can tell you from personal experience you're better off waiting till you're a better builder (if you're not already) before posting MOCs, you do not need to take this advice but if you do I'd recommend showing WIP pictures to builders you look up to who can then tell you how to improve until you meet a standard at which you would be comfortable posting MOCs to the group.

If it doesn't work out, I'll just come up with something else.

No. All the cities are on the map. Towns are usually reserved for more established members but you could easily get away with a small village or two. If you want a rough idea of where a village might be take a look at the map and you can have yours near to any one of the already existing cities or maybe just along one of the rivers.

And, it's just Jonny jysk.

Thanks for the advice! My MOC I built is like a 16x20, so it's fairly small. It is the ruins of a small gatehouse (the skeleton of the corners of it, really), with remnants of a dam and other stonework barely visible above the surface of a large stream. Did it accidentally catch fire, or was it burned? And what are the two people in it doing? Is the man in black warning the young knight or threatening him? And why are they both at the ruins? Sorry about the little teaser. It just gives a little about my MOC that I'll try to post soon. Oh, and how do I edit the other comment? I can't figure out how to do that...

As far as I am aware, stuff like rubber bands and Brickarms claymore swords, while not historically accurate, are allowed. Don't quote me on this though, because I don't know a huge amount about the new system.

If the bands are from lego sets then it is acceptable. Sometimes hard to find them in the right colour but they have to be LEGO or it's a no deal. It took me a long time to acquire the real LEGO scabbard pieces and often the figs wearing them aren't so posable so a lego rubber band can be practical and good looking if you do it right.

Ok, so just to clear it up, because I'm getting mixed messages here: they are allowed only if they came from a Lego set? Or I can use them because it's no different from using Brickforge accessories?

Got it. I'll do it with two main villages near one of the towns and each will have a few (2-3) small villages near them. I looked at the map and I like the city along the border of Mythron and Nerogue. The villages would be in Nerogue but close to the city, just across the border.

You don't need to submit every little thing to the Ideas thread, but any major events should be brought up there.

For example, you don't need to ask to canonize your character shopping in a market or encountering orcs in the wild and fighting them off. On the other hand, if your character became the leader of a city or attacked and killed 500 soldiers from another faction, then you need to bring it up in the Ideas thread.

It would be preferable if your storycard was a single MOC on mocpages similar to the old scorecards. You can plan the html for the page on notepad and have it really well organised into different seasons/storylines. Summary pictures like Armon's add a cool touch.

We've remodeled the whole thing! :D

Basically, the staff saw that activity was going down and decided that we would re-format the LOM so it could function smoothly with a small number of members. This meant getting rid of a lot of the RPG aspects of the LOM, which rely on a large active member base to be truly effective, such as the ranks system, the points system, and the guild system (which I'm pretty sure most people didn't even know we had :P). This meant effectively turning the LOM into a story-telling group, so we decided to also get rid of UCs, so members would have more creative freedom in writing stories, such as being able to set stories in various time periods and being able to use Major Characters to a greater degree than before.

This meant getting rid of a lot of the RPG aspects of the LOM, which rely on a large active member base to be truly effective, such as the ranks system, the points system, and the guild system (which I'm pretty sure most people didn't even know we had :P). This meant effectively turning the LOM into a story-telling group, so we decided to also get rid of UCs, so members would have more creative freedom in writing stories, such as being able to set stories in various time periods and being able to use Major Characters to a greater degree than before.

That's awesome! And a great idea. Thanks for explaining all this! It sounds like it'll work out really well! For me it was often hard to keep up because my story was not taking place at the same time haha.

Which leads me to another question. So you read my story way back when, and it really didn't follow the LOM story or history at all XD I realize that since my story kinda defied all the history and stuff (by creating an older civilization), but I began that story way before I really understood the LOM. However, I would hate to just leave it where it is. It's been taking me awhile (I hate getting older sometimes), but I've been working on the last part to my story. Is there any chance I could finish it and post it, even if my story contains things that aren't in the story (you'll know what I mean if you've read my story haha). After that I'll be done and then start following the guidelines :P

Wod there be anything on Sadons personality? I couldn't find it in his profile

Whoops we had some stuff written out that we never published. Here are some specifics on his personality:
Sadon is a proud passionate man who would do anything for his country. While he’s not the smartest man and tends to make decisions based on emotion, he is still wise in his own way. Strong and an excellent soldier Sadon has a talent for adapting to what the situation calls for, which is invaluable to a king in these dangerous times. The experiences of adventuring in other lands and fighting in the War of Unbinding make him one of the most experienced soldiers in the Lands at the age of 34 (during 9 AU). Because of this many predict him to be the best king Mythron has had in a long time.

And if you'd like a bit more, here's some history:
Born in 25 BBU, Sadon is the second son of Mythros IV Richardson. Because of the war with Rainos, the patriotic Sadon learned at a young age how to fight with any weapon he chose. As he grew older he would squire to great knights at tournaments and learn all he could from them during short times of peace. At fifteen he fought in his first tournament and by eighteen he had won his first tournament. He was feared on the battlefield and had many successful battles against the Rainosian forces. Then he met the Butcher of Rainos at the Battle of Unbinding who outmatched him in skill and strength. He suffered grave injuries from this fight but was saved by a knight who forced the Butcher back while others dragged Sadon away. By the time he recovered from these injuries his brother Rowan was king. Still seeking adventure Sadon said goodbye to both his brothers and left for uncharted lands, not to return until he received word that his brother had been assassinated by the Black Lotus. He was crowned king in 6 AU.

So who is your character before that? It's relevant to whether there is a possibility of them becoming leader.

If you remove the word LoM from the titles of the old mocs or add some sort of note to say they're no longer part of the LoM story then it's ok to start afresh. Since you have the full timeline now you could even extend events out into a more realistic timescale and have your character become leader at some point in the future. Anything specific to outlaws, ie. relating to leaders and how cities are "governed", cab will be able to help you with.
And I was just wondering how your character gained that level of authority in the story when I asked who he was.

:D Ofc lel. If your old story is appropriate to be canon it can remain so, even if you just give up and don't finish it which is totally fine unless you wanted the grand historian rank any time soon. :P Creating a new story is and has always been absolutely fine so long as it too fits the lore.

Why?


Why as in why is there unrest or why do I want that in my story? Or why am I asking the question?

Assuming you mean why I think that fits and is interesting-

-for my story, it means I can have multiple sub plot lines, which will all lead to a climax.
-my character can be part of important and past events.
-it gives a good way for my character to become city leader
-helps me write tension-filled stories, which feel like they have a bigger impact on the world.

Why it fits the story-

-The Confedoracy is in its infancy- this shows turmoil and difficulty in its formation, and shows the real struggles new countries can face.
-shows that the confederacy is not yet in complete control.
-exposes how people who once fought agaisnt (and committed crimes against) the establishment can become the establishment and be very hypocritical. No ones perfect, and all that.
-should the dictator run back to mythron, in the future his descendants could be generals or soldiers invading back bodus- aprevenge for their father when he was kicked out, it almost seems. This also ties a lot together and makes LOM feel a lot more complete and stories relevant to one another, I feel.

All of this is of course my opinion. Destory away if I miss a few points, and of course this may not fit at all or need tweaking.

So a revolt is the climax of several storylines? Sounds interesting if several characters end up there. Not sure how this relates to your character becoming leader but I'm guessing he leads the revolt? That would make sense. You have some interesting ideas there with power grabbing officials if that's a possibility in outlaw cities. When I said why what I meant was why does the revolt occur and if I understood you correctly it's to seize back power from a corrupt government?
I must inform you however that if the corrupt previous dictator of the city fled to mythron he would be executed or become a fugitive. There is no possiblitiy of him becoming a general or joining the Mythronian military at a high rank. Mythron's policy is strict adherence to the King's Law so in the years since unbinding where your story is set there would not be as much corurption in Mythron, nothing above the expected level in a nation. All Outlaws are also treated as criminals.

Okay. What about the children or grandchildren of his? If the city leader was able to escape, (or die, and his wife and kids could escape) back to mythron, where they could lay it low for 50 years (2 generations if they die young enough. :P) until they try a rise to power. That was just a little idea, I wasn't too sure if it fitted, and If it dosen't, then that's fine.

I had imagined him arriving in the city as the revolt took place, but I guess if he arrived during the unrest before the revolt started, and then he either took over the revolt, or kick started it from a simple unrest into full scale revolt.

They could always escape to another outlaw city and find power there. In Mythron they would not gain any such power. Commoners (as this is what they would be) in Mythron do not easily rise through the ranks and there are ample criminals in outlaw territory for them to have dealings with.

Okay, so got a deep question here, but would it not be wise for the Rainosians to deport the conquered Mythronians to Rainos, (where they aren't familiar with the surroundings) Rather than risk a successful rebellion? Of coarse, judging by the Timeline, large portions of Rainosian clans migrate to the Mythronian west coast, most likely to fill the serf vacuum. Then the deported Mythronians can either be imprisoned, or sold into some sort of servant hood, as they have been conquered.

Does that make sense?

Yes, that was a joke. :P In the old LOM, it was custom for the staff to wreak havoc on April first and then attempt to clean it all up in the following days before releasing an actual UC write-up abhorrently late. Any UCs, new rank systems, or other important announcements posted in the old LOM group on April 1st can presumed to be a joke.

Honestly, I found the old rule system flawed due to the fact that for story freedom you needed the perks that ranks gave you at the beginning... the LOM wiki ranks are even more confusing.

On the topic of taking our old ranks, I would advise you not to. Obviously, I can't stop you, but I think it would be more beneficial for you to write up your own ranks (feel free to take inspiration from the old ones, but I'd prefer if you didn't copy+paste them).

Also I still don't quite understand why you bring up other RPs inside an RP... seems mutinous.

We would prefer for you to come up with your own system. There is a reason we decided to remodel the LOM: the old system was no longer working, and we had lost a drastic amount of activity because of this (though of course many other factors played into that as well, but still). If you want to create an RPG that is successful, I recommend that you don't copy our system, since our system clearly hasn't been very successful for the past year, which is why we now have a new one.

Okay, so got a deep question here, but would it not be wise for the Rainosians to deport the conquered Mythronians to Rainos, (where they aren't familiar with the surroundings) Rather than risk a successful rebellion? Of coarse, judging by the Timeline, large portions of Rainosian clans migrate to the Mythronian west coast, most likely to fill the serf vacuum. Then the deported Mythronians can either be imprisoned, or sold into some sort of servant hood, as they have been conquered.

Does that make sense?


It is certainly plausible that some Mythronians were taken back to Rainos in order to be used or sold as slaves.

Well, I wasn't about to say slaves, because I figured that would have lit a fuse.:P But, yeah.

Honestly, I found the old rule system flawed due to the fact that for story freedom you needed the perks that ranks gave you at the beginning... the LOM wiki ranks are even more confusing.

On the topic of taking our old ranks, I would advise you not to. Obviously, I can't stop you, but I think it would be more beneficial for you to write up your own ranks (feel free to take inspiration from the old ones, but I'd prefer if you didn't copy+paste them).

Also I still don't quite understand why you bring up other RPs inside an RP... seems mutinous.

I never intended to copy-paste, I just liked how motivated I felt in the old system and wanted to apply that feeling in another RP.

Also, I'm sorry if it's hard to understand, but I just have an idea, and my mind will race a hundred miles a minute to get the idea working.

I don't understand how what I do could be considered insubordinate. I mean, I'm not trying to steal your members.:P I don't know, over on the Lego site we have a lot of RPs, and most of them are me and maybe eight other guys across all of them consistently.:P It might just be that we're not the jealous type. But again, I don't know.

Just make your own rp. You'd need something lower standard for the gallery so the users can understand the system anyway.

This is a medieval fantasy rpg. You build MOCs and write stories set within the defined world of the LoM. Read the rules and timeline for full info.

Anyway since it was an invasion and not a complete one at that I doubt the rainosians would be diverting resources to send mythronians to rainos. They'd more likely be forced into slavery in Mythron.

They wouldn't really be diverting resources would they? I'm no staff, nor am I a respected member of any community I've ever been in, but i would disagree. They're a bit like Vikings, Rainos- going to invade, and then maybe one or two tribal leaders think that those prisoners look good as slaves. It wouldn't nexcisarily be organised, but if I had ever so slightly lower morals and was going to an invasion I would certainly steal some Slaves.

That said I'm No staff and know an eight of what Jonny does about LOM from his position in the staff.

Well sure they can be stealing people and taking them as slaves but the rainosian forces in Mythron would be sticking around to begin with so if they wanted their slaves they'd have to keep them in Mythron.

It's a bit loose really since we're talking a magical world completely unrelated to our own.

Yes I understand however the presence of magic in the world of LoM makes it very difficult to compare.

There are many comparisons that can be made with LOTR as undoubtedly most of the members and staff are fans but LoM isn't a high fantasy so to speak.

The LOM is only very loosely rooted in real world conditions. It mixes technologies from different parts of the Middle Ages (from the 1000s up to the 1400s, if I had to hazard a guess), features a variety of fantasy creatures and sentient species, and of course there is magic, as others have mentioned. Comparisons can be drawn between the LOM and LotR, but the two are fairly distinct.

That would be a bad move on Rainos' part. How much easier would it be to rebel in a land you are well acquainted with? Just look at the American Revolution. That, and their assets wouldn't be wasted, it would be foolish for traders NOT to come and take advantage of an opening market. Several merchants would likely kill for a chance at such an ill-explored market, as supplies are limited and it would become very lucrative.

Oh, that's tough. Rainos is like a cross of Vikings and Celts, Mythron is comparable to the Roman Empire, Enalica is like Greece or Spain, as they rely heavily on their naval might, The outlaws are just what they say (and yes I feel like that's not a great description.), and Nerogue has the largest Elven population, thus their tactics are affected by this slightly. So maybe that helps, but it's really up to your own preference.

I believe that traditionally Mythron has the best soldiers, but for fighting individually, I'd probably say Outlaws or Nerogue. I'm not a staff though so...

Mythron is the well oiled war machine. Rainos is the barbarian force with a variety of warriors with different styles. Those are the two I would note.
