Journey's End

 Group admin 
Well...

We have come to the journey's end. The Lands of Mythron had its golden age, but those days are long gone. As sad as it is, LOM has come to an end. There is not enough activity to justify continuing the group, and right now the staff don't have the motivation or time to pour our own effort into creating LOM-related content.

I have locked all discussions except this one; feel free to mourn LOM here, and to chat a bit, but other than that please do not create any new convos.

For anyone who enjoyed the lore behind the Lands of Mythron, the factions, various characters created by members over LOM's lifespan, you are free to create your own stories based in this mythical land; if, however, you are trying to start up your own RPG do NOT simply copy/paste information from LOM, on the wiki or otherwise.

Thank you to the few, final souls who came on near the end, as well as to the great founders of this group and the admins from years past who kept it going for at least a little while.

Well, it's about time... This has been dead for a while. MOCPages is falling into ruin, and the unavoidable end is finally upon us. RIP LOM

Well then. Wasn't expecting a eulogy when I clicked this... It's a bummer LoM is dead now though. I didn't really see it in life all that much. I suppose most will mourn its lose though... RIP LoM.

Welp it had some great storylines and not so great storylines, as well as great builders and not so great builders. I think we all know that LOM was never the greatest medieval RPG out there, but to us . . . well, it was certainly something. *wipes away a tear*

Rest in peace, LOM.

So this might get a bit sappy, but since I've been part of this group for four years and two months now, I figure I should give some kind of statement aknowledging the monumentality of the LOM's closure.

In a way, it's sad that none of the Lands of Mythron's original members got to see the entire four years and eight months of its lifespan. But I think it also stands as a testament to the LOM's success that it continued on even after all of the original members had left. It grew above and beyond what its founders had planned and took on a life of its own, and that, to me, is amazing.

The LOM is not just the product of the efforts of a single person, or of five, or ten, or even twenty people. It is the collective product of dozens of creative minds, perhaps even in the triple digits. Just off the top of my head, I can name over twenty-five members of the LOM, spread out over the entire history of the group, all of whom affected the LOM in ways notable enough that it would not have been the same without them.

The community that arose around the LOM was complex and ever changing, and countless members left their marks in this imaginary world, posting thousands of creations and stories. Tens of thousands of comments were posted in the main group, staff group, faction groups, Tourney groups and other affiliated groups, from strategizing groups to social hangouts. It's quite difficult to really get a grasp of the full size and scope of the LOM, but it's safe to say that, with 25+ groups affiliated in some way with the LOM RPG (by a conservative personal estimate), the LOM was one of the largest, if not /the/ largest continuous operation ever to grace the Mocpages website.

From a personal viewpoint, the LOM has played a surprisingly large role in my life. My continued interest in Lego as well as the majority of my writing experience can be attributed almost entirely to the LOM, and I have spent countless hours building, writing, commenting, judging, brainstorming, worldbuilding and even daydreaming for/about the Lands of Mythron. For several years, my dedication to the LOM was complete, and not a week would go by without me interacting with the LOM in one or several of the aforementioned ways.

Of course, I'm sad to be watching the LOM go. But I also know that the LOM has had its golden age (you're welcome Armon), and now it's time for us to put the world we have built together to rest.

Thanks to everyone who made the LOM what it was.

I guess this probably looks sudden to you if you only just came on board. You're still welcome to build within the LOM universe; what "closing" the LOM really means is that the staff will no longer maintain the group in any way, meaning the LOM group ceases to hold any kind of structure. So there are no longer any kind of rules of participation beyond just being nice if you decide to hang around. Since the entire purpose of the LOM group was to give a structure on which to base one's Lego building and writing activities, the removal of this structure signifies the absolvation of the group as it has existed up until this point. However, the LOM Universe is by no means sealed; you're always welcome to add on.

Oh. That's a shame, I was about to start a series. Sorry to hear. Que ser ah, I guess.

I have had a good two years here, and this place had something that all the other groups lacked. I don't know what, just something.

It has been my honour, no, my pleasure, to have met many people in this group, some of which I will continue to admire greatly.

Well done to Mr.Cab for running the outlaw group successfully and creating one of the most fully developed, most recognisable and greatest characters, Quinan.

My greatest thanks to all of you who made this group special, the staff- Reese, Jonny, Armon, Halthi, joe Tyer, Gilbert, and the many others. Also thanks to the many members who made this place special- Tucker Marley, classical bricks name but a few.

Goodbye fellows, and rest in peace Myths of Legendorm/Landorm.

"Itís a sad principle, but time after time it demonstrates itself.

No matter how strong the cable, give it enough tension and itíll snap. No matter how great the empire, given time, it will crumble. No matter how strong the person, he will die in the end.

Nothing lasts forever; if it has a beginning, it will have an end.

Sometimes you can see it coming, sometimes you canít.

You never really think youíll be the one left when the smoke clears, the one to have to pick up the pieces and carry on alone.

But it happens.

You can ignore the signs all you want.

Everyday, it gives just a little bit more, and you know in your heart itís coming down someday. You can blind yourself to it, you can fight against it, but still, the end is coming.

Even the best, even the greatest, even they fall sometimes.

Even the most unified can be driven apart.

It takes courage to move on. It takes a lot to go through the fall and not lose yourself to it. You know you won't come out unchanged.

As sad as it is, this story, too, has to be told, if anyone wishes to really know the Lands of Mythron.

So here it is.

This is the account of The Breaking."-Quote adapted from superseaturtle's "Fearsome Fivesome: The Breaking Intro"

I regret to say that I wasn't here to see our glory.

While relaxing under the flamboa tree
Who's shade in the summer is oft welcome.

Determined to uproot us from this spot
A determination cold and bight that devours

It'd neat to incorporate the invasion into a story. Idk the relationships between the factions, but what if the battle turned into Land War I? All the factions in a massive battle (kind of like Battle of the Five Armies but it's EVERYONE). From the ashes rises a small group. Not all of them have been leaders, but they realize their differences not so large as they thought. Essentially it's a feel good happy "friendship wins" ending but it leaves Mythron in a good place to restart (should it ever decide to) and ties everything together quite nicely.

Hahahaha I read most of the timeline and didn't realize that it's been established to go on until most of us are dead. :)

Well the story has been rebooted before, how much of this was created for this new group? If everything after the invasion is the answer, then why not scrap it? I don't see a reason to regard a timeline that's only been in existence for a few short months as canon.

^^Of course if it was established in the old group that's knocked to pieces but still. Something for the Admins to consider. My idea is based on the old Mythron where the character's stories somewhat affect the timeline. I can be swept aside with no problem, but something to consider.

because we worked hard on it, thought logically about the way the overall story was going to go and published it as a framework for future LoM stories. It's the perfect guidelines for anyone wanting to build MOCs within the LoM canon now moderating the group has ended.

Without the group AND without the timeline you may as well just make up your own fantasy world to set a story in.

Easy there buddy, no need to get salty. How long has the full timeline been established? Since July? August?


Pretty much everything Tolkien had on his universe has been published by his kid and has since amassed a HUGE fan base. The Lands of Mythron is known by mayybe 600 people. (The new timeline known by less than 60) The whole group is only 4 years old, the new group about an 8th of that.

Maybe there was work that went into it, but 1. it's unlikely anyone will look for the timeline if they decide to build something LOM related and 2. There's no real history to the extra years because they weren't lived by the players (the siege of Tomeu, for example. Just reading that makes me happy like reading the Lord of the Rings.

So what I'm saying is that it's not affecting anyone except the 6ish people that wrote the story.

And as I said before, y'all could sweep it aside and that's fine, we can plan it into the actual timeline nbd. No reason to be beef jercky.

Easy there buddy, no need to get salty. How long has the full timeline been established? Since July? August?


Pretty much everything Tolkien had on his universe has been published by his kid and has since amassed a HUGE fan base. The Lands of Mythron is known by mayybe 600 people. (The new timeline known by less than 60) The whole group is only 4 years old, the new group about an 8th of that.

Maybe there was work that went into it, but 1. it's unlikely anyone will look for the timeline if they decide to build something LOM related and 2. There's no real history to the extra years because they weren't lived by the players (the siege of Tomeu, for example. Just reading that makes me happy like reading the Lord of the Rings. I don't know who the empress of Mythron is and I don't really care because the world wasn't really affected by her, really)

So what I'm saying is that it's not affecting anyone except the 6ish people that wrote the story.

And as I said before, y'all could sweep it aside and that's fine, we can plan it into the actual timeline nbd. No reason to be beef jercky.


Welp, idk why this makes me salty and I'm not entirely sure what beef jercky is but otherwise I can see what you're saying. If you haven't used the foundations of the LoM world (aka the information on the timeline) as part of the story or background to the story of your MOC then it's not really a LoM moc. The UC system was scrapped to reduce the staff's responsibilities due to time constraints in our personal lives, the future timeline we made is not something to be considered separately or disposable. Basically you can build a LoM moc or you can build a non-LoM moc, in the end either is just great but one fits the story as it has been set out and one would not so that's the simple choice one can make. Sorry for whatever part of my hasty responses provoked the use of the word "salty".

And that's what I'm saying. To a lot of people, (ie myself) this new timeline isn't LoM. It has no meaning for us. I get that the UC system was scrapped because real life is a thing (heck that's why I post MOCs every 9 months) but instituting a timeline that won't be used is... useless.

An alternate solution would be to just move everything up a few years. Since right now all of our characters are still in the present, let it go out with a bang, but then leave a considerable gap and have the rest of the timeline as written.

I've accepted that y'all don't want that and I understand your side of the discussion, but I want to let you see my view. Neither side is right or wrong. In fact both could be right. It's just who has the power to choose. (and they've chosen the path already set)

So. How can we squeeze all of us into a Rain(e?(o?)sian invasion on Mythron without messing things up? :)

Hmmm well, the point here is that the timeline is official LOM canon. It's established whether the group is still in moderation or not. You guys can technically do anything you want for a finale, but if it doesn't fit into the timeline it won't be considered canon. That's all that's being said here, I think. But if by any chance you do want to fit it into the timeline, feel free to ask questions to that end.

Well I'm afraid it simply is LoM. There's no other way to put it. Most universes have a canon storyline with lore and things like that. This is LoM's. I'm sure some people who were in LoM pre black lotus would have thought the dwarven invasion "wasn't their LoM". I know I had my doubts about some plotlines but in the end you just have to accept that's how the story goes and if you don't like it then it's just an opportunity to get creative and make up your own world to set a MOC in.

@Dude whose name escapes me and I'm too lazy to make another reply to: by make a gap I mean keep the invasion at 9AU, then have our plotline, then put like 30 yearsish between our "Grand Finale" and the rest of the plot so that thing have time to go to Cr_a_p before resuming what is written.

Meaning the established timeline with the dates as they currently are. We're not going to moderate the group unless someone randomly decides to pop by and delete non-LoM crap but we'd advise you to adhere to the timeline (which everyone else was perfectly fine with doing prior to now) if you're going to build something and try to say it's set in the LoM.

Another thing to mention would be faction affiliation/allegiance as that's of the utmost importance.

For example: Daeron took leave from his duties as he usually does when he's aggravated by the politics of Shilond County (All of Nerogue south of the Someli River.), but upon arriving at his destination, he had to confront a Rainosian Shadow scout, after a fierce duel, Daeron defeats the scout and nurses his wounds. The next morning He set out to give chase to the second scout only to find that a large Ranosian strike force had made camp on Nerogue's coast(As Mythron's coast was too heavily protected.) in order to eventually lay siege to Carthal (To halt further Mythronian naval retaliation as Carthal is the nation's naval hub.). Daeron then makes haste on the road to Carthal to warn the city, bumping into my Mythronian- alias Titus Caradion and an unknown traveling companion on his way. However, as he walks with them a horseman rides up. He finds that the horseman was a ranger from Caer Pendraig, his home, and that the village had been razed by the Rainosians as a warning to Nerogue to stay neutral(Note: It wasnít considered a great deal important by Nerogue, and it was held in the same regarded by Mythron before the formation of Nerogue.), Though they failed to reach their real target of Zord because of bravery on the part of Daeronís parents, Gildor Pendraig and MŪriel of Baltwood [both of whom were lost in the fray.] As well as the rest of the elves of Shilond who ralied to the alarm bells of their countyís only village and center of commerce [As it is closest to Zord on the Someli.] Shocked and in disbelief, he rides back to Caer Pendraig after commissioning Titus to take his message to Carthal.

Titus takes the message to Carthal, but their town leader, a mister Galord Gathergold (a very successful merchant dwarf from a faraway land.) will hear none of it. He disregards it as a threat and has Titus locked up. Now itís up to Titusí enigmatic friend to save the day. He contacts a local group who hold their new leader in high distain and together they take the town from the inside, defeating the few traitorous guards who were going to open the Gates for the Rainosians. The next morning the siege commencesÖ

Daeron finally makes it to Caer Pendraig after almost running into the Rainosian strike force in the process. He is appalled at the sight of his home, where he had lived for centuries (Heís an elf.:P), in ruin. He swears then and there to hunt down and defeat every last one of the scoundrels who were responsible for this misfortune. A monk who was spared, along with the local church building, kindly reminds Daeron that his oath is not the answer, and that the villains will be judged by the High King when they die. Not totally understanding, Daeron promises to heed his words and turns to leave. Then a thought strikes him, in all his years he had never met this Monk, and so he spins around to ask the manís name only to find that he had vanished. Perplexed, Daeron heads for Zorthan to explain the goings on and state of emergency.

The siege of Carthal is the fiercest the town has ever seen. Titus is freed from his prison and ends up leading the people to victory. Unable to get the town to rule as his own, outside of his orders, General Baidraung goes about his original mission and sends Captain Polonius and a unit of Shadow scouts (Baidraungís personal body-guard unit.) to set the docks ablaze while the rest of the army continues sieging the city as a diversion(This is why Mythron doesnít go to war on the high seas on the timeline. Because their navy was severly weakened, and the ships remaining were with the King in Enalica.). The plan worked, as soon as the docks were set to flame Baidraung retreated, the day was won! But the dockís fire burned more violently now in the twilight and Titus, as well as the rest of the defenders, silently cursed the apparent genius of the diversion.

Days later, Daeron stands before the council and retells his story. The council waits a day before responding. They award Daeron for his parentís bravery by making him lieutenant of the Riders of Zorthan. They send him to lodge in the councilorsí private hotel on campus and begin testing his abilities in order to see if they had made the right decision.
Titus is elected by the people to lead them, but declines, saying that he is too young. The people turn to His enigmatic friend then and, despite his disapproval, force him to be their new leader. Titusí friend turns out to be a very wise, humble leader, who knows what to do and when to do it, at least, more often than not (And I can have him be in this position because the point system is all but void now. Heíll mainly serve as an NPC ruler as I think Julie claimed this city but never appointed a specific leader. Heíll be like a batman- style vigilante by night and leader by day.).

Treachery on the high seas. The Rainosian forces had set sail for Rainos. As they grew nearer to their destination, their ships were intercepted by Enalican buccaneers. In the confusion, Polonius kills Baidraung and is able to escape the sea battle with only four score men on the ďAstrologer,Ē a modest-sized merchant vessel commandeered for the voyage. Polonius then pays his men to lie and sells it to the Rainosians that Baidraung was a failure and that it was he who pulled the mission to its completion. For this he is awarded the position of Ambassador to the Mythro-Rainosian colony-in-the-making. Arguing the utter unfair-ness of this post in comparison to his ďheroic actions,Ē he manages to receive the title of explorer and is sent across the Sea Beyond where he doesnít come back till we make the gap.

Daeron and Titus are free for the Christmas co-op finale now.
Daeron is affiliated with Nerogue, Titus with Mythron, and Polonius with Rainos.

Hahahaha I read most of the timeline and didn't realize that it's been established to go on until most of us are dead. :)

Well the story has been rebooted before, how much of this was created for this new group? If everything after the invasion is the answer, then why not scrap it? I don't see a reason to regard a timeline that's only been in existence for a few short months as canon.

^^Of course if it was established in the old group that's knocked to pieces but still. Something for the Admins to consider. My idea is based on the old Mythron where the character's stories somewhat affect the timeline. I can be swept aside with no problem, but something to consider.

Cab? Reese? jonnylegoboy911? Armon? What have you to say?

I see that the debate has died down, but just to add my own thoughts because why not:

From a story perspective, there really isn't such a thing as "new" and "old" Mythron. What was changed when we created the new group was the way the group functioned - the system of play, so to speak - but the story and worldbuilding stayed the same. The additions to the timeline were, in my mind, intended to be treated as UCs would be, that is to say as an overarching plot for the LOM universe within the parameters of which one can create their own stories. A five-way war, though certainly a fun idea and a spectacle to behold, would basically be like re-writing a past UC.
Granted, it's a UC that nobody entered, and in that sense I see your point that adding the war in wouldn't really damage anything because outside of the timeline nothing was established. It would be easy enough to add an extra generation of rulers into the timeline and move its events back 30 years. I personally would be willing to agree to this, since I've always advocated for the general LOM populace having more say in large-scale events, but ultimately it would be up to the entire staff (strange as that is to say since we're technically all retired now) because we are still the official the creators of the timeline. It looks to me like as of right now more of the admins are opposed to considering your proposed project canon than aren't. If that does wind up being the general staff consensus, you're still welcome to create the crossover project you're planning; it just won't be "official". (Not that officialness means much at this point.)

There was a quite a lot of time between Rowan's assassination and the last UC. If you have a problem with the completed timeline because it wasn't part of the old system you still have a ton of UCs which you can be the setting for the events in your story prior to the events that never got to be UCs.

I realize I'm a bit late to the party (funeral?) and also have been inactive for ages, but I still wanted to add a sappy & nostalgia-tinted tribute to the LOM for posterity ŗ la Monsieur Cabbie.

I still remember the day I stumbled upon the LOM in early 2014. Up until that point I had only created one or two MOCs (somehow even cr@ppier than my traumatic intro build), but I knew I instantly wanted to be a part of the LOM― it seemed like a favorite fantasy book come alive. I think I came during the beginning of an amazing period of the LOM― a lot of highly talented builders (think Halhi, Gilly, Stephen, Ian, to name a few) were active. Perhaps even more importantly than being active, they were kind and willing to dispense as much advise as I could ask for.

My fondest memories of the LOM were from the 2015 Tourney era― the Cow and Unicorn commotion that I donít fully remember, the Medium Density Fiberboards and our overly active messaging (near 3000 comments for 5 people, and thatís not including the front-page drama), as well as the immensely funny resulting group titled ďThe FDM Group and Guild Leaders' Chat for Non-MDFs and Alleged Guild Leaders (Complete With Mad Dictatress and The Seventh Circle of Hes).Ē Oh, and judging and helping for a brief period of time as a staff member was also a whole lot of fun. However, getting to know a lot of you guys― Thom, Zachie, Brickie, Cabbie, Gilly, Ian, Armon, Joe, Halhi, Stephen, Asad, OoL, etc. etc. etc.― was honestly the most fun of all― probably more enjoyable than building LEGO, although that shouldnít come as a surprise, given that I havenít build a darn thing in forever :P

From a creative aspect, as Cabbie also mentioned, I doubt I would have continued in all of the daydreaming, frenetic writing, building, staff planning, judging, etc. inspired by the LOM to the same extent if I had never joined the LOM. In many ways, I think the LOM is even to blame, in part, for the primary IRL extracurriculars that eat up so much of my time nowadays― I both help mentor writers and artists as the editor of my schoolís student-run publication, and I also help plan for school events (admittedly less exciting than LOM wars) as a part of my schoolís student council.

Of course a part of me does hope that one day when weíre all retired & wrinkled with half a dozen grandkids a piece and a shared soul-deep world-weariness that some sort of revival will take place. You know, weíll all come storming out of our dark ages clutching fistfuls of LEGO, screaming in unison and building and writing frantically. But most of me is happy to lay this world to rest― I honestly think itís nice to have undamaged memories from the past to look back on fondly. Thanks, guys.

I'm fairly certain no one will see this. But I think it's more for me than anyone else anyhow.

I am one of the original admins of LOM. I jumped aboard a few months into the game and was quickly involved enough to be the Enalica leader. And boy, did I love every second of this group.

Right now, I'm 20 years old and very rarely think back to my times on MOCpages. But when I do, they're very fond memories, often involving this group. Without it, I doubt I would be the writer I am today. Part of my love for storytelling (and my first real hint that I was good at it) came from creating the "Masked Man", which was basically LOM's Batman.

Anyhow, it's a shame to see this group finally die. Yet I am glad to see that it flourished long after I went innactive.

Rest in peace, LOM. I hope someday we all come back. But who knows. It seems that MOCpages itself is dying :(

I am one of the original admins of LOM. I jumped aboard a few months into the game and was quickly involved enough to be the Enalica leader. And boy, did I love every second of this group.

Right now, I'm 20 years old and very rarely think back to my times on MOCpages. But when I do, they're very fond memories, often involving this group. Without it, I doubt I would be the writer I am today. Part of my love for storytelling (and my first real hint that I was good at it) came from creating the "Masked Man", which was basically LOM's Batman.

Anyhow, it's a shame to see this group finally die. Yet I am glad to see that it flourished long after I went innactive.

Rest in peace, LOM. I hope someday we all come back. But who knows. It seems that MOCpages itself is dying :(

Eh, MOCpages itself at least won't be missed (especially for the growing finger of blame that's somehow been pointed at the homeschooled Christian community). We all know it's needed updates it won't ever be getting.

But do you have any writing projects going on right now? I'd certainly be interested to hear about them.

I just finished my fourth draft of a novel. Planning on sending it to publishers in a few weeks once I run through it one more time! If you want t test read it, you're more than welcome to! I'm always looking for feedback. You still have my email?

Not sure if I have the right one. I love reading drafts of people's books, though, so send it to armonruss@gmail.com.
