Thanks. I was just checking because I wasn't sure how it would work for getting points. It would only be used in freebuilds for story progression but still, thought I'd check.

I believe that they do not want any random space vehicle with an Insurgency label, so you can't add any spacecraft you want unless it is used in a story. Aside from that, I think all freebuilds have to be built with the Insurgency in mind.

Let me get more specific. Does a free build have to be a single setting or can it start in a coffee shop, proceed down a street and then end in an office? Or does the entire event have to happen in one location? Trying to finalize how to build for my story.

I don't think there's a limit to how many scenes you can incorporate into one freebuild. If a chapter of your story requires more than one, you're perfectly free to make more than one. Of course, there's always the option of turning one freebuild into several - and getting more points in the process - by splitting the different scenes into their each individual pages. :P

I want to formally apologize for our absence from this group. I speak for all three of the admins (as the others have disappeared). Thomas is on a break from MOCpages, no one knows where George is, and I have just moved accross the world and am getting settled in.

Now, to the point. We will be assigning new admins for at least temporary jobs.

I gave George and Thomas a week to respond saying something along the lines of "Either become active or choose a replacement, otherwise I will choose them". So by a week, things will be moving again.

Again, sorry for all of the wait.

IMO, I think there are no superpowers allowed, and that there shouldn't be. What you could do though is make an elaborate weapon or jetpack, anything that can pertain to power. (In some way) I mean, this is a long time into the future, and a new galaxy. Of course there will be new weapons, or even things to cloak a ship or yourself, etc. As long as the weapon (or anything else) makes sense. :P

Well the Galactic Imperium is made up of America, Russia and Europe I believe. I would imagine that the headship of the GI would be in America somewhere, probably still Washington seems how this isn't really THAT far into the future.

That doesn't really answer my first question.I wanted the capitol of AURELIA,not the Galiactic Imperium.

So you did! Apologies for that. Haha
Well the Aurelii first appeared on Earth. That's where it started before the Shift but I don't know where there main base is now although it would have to be either Zarus or Fuyorai.

Yup! As long as it's distinguishable from LOM caves, though. i.e. with some sci-fi elements inside. :P


Quoting George Marshall
May you could make the cave on another planet, with some cool plants inside or some lost ancient technology built into the cave. That would be pretty awesome.


Ok. Thanks guys! :D

I'm not sure what color of outfit my person should wear if I was part of Aurelia. Is there a dress code? Oh, can you be a commander or whatever you want, (as long as you're not the ruler or whatever,) or do you have to work to the top like LOM?

The colors of Aurelia are red, gray, and black. But it's not required that you follow the dress code. And you really shouldn't start out as a commander. You could lead your own squadron, but work your way up to a higher position than that over time.

What is sort of the "capitol" of Aurelia?And where does its leader hang out?

Also,for my UC,can I show my character hiding from the GI,but have him get captured anyway in a tie-in freebuild?

The "capital", so to say, would be located in Zarus.

Well the Galactic Imperium is made up of America, Russia and Europe I believe. I would imagine that the headship of the GI would be in America somewhere, probably still Washington seems how this isn't really THAT far into the future.

As for your second question, if it fits in with your story and the challenge description, go for it!
--Blast--

Actually, The Galactic Imperium is made up of all of Earth and Qoter. And in case you didn't know, the "headship" of the GI is a council of unknown leaders from all parts of America, Qoter, and other planets under GI control.

How many freebuilds are we allowed in one month?Are we limited at five just like in LOM?(just to play it safe,my story for this month is planned to be told in four freebuilds and a rank,league,and UC challenge[all separate])

Also,I thought Laser guns early on were allowed(besides,I honestly don't think very many people are following that rule).And is the technology listed in the FAQ topic just about Earth's stuff,or generally in the whole solar system?

BUMP. My questions haven't been answered yet,and I have another one:How long would it take to travel between the different planets,depending on engines or whatever turbo boosts there may be?

Apologies. I didn't answer your original questions because I don't know the answers. I was leaving it to one of the original staff members to answer but nobody has. Sorry for that.
Um, lasers are currently in development by the GI but are not yet available. Plus a prototype has just been stolen for the Aurelii so they are about to begin work on their own. Your question, is that galaxy-wide; the list contains the best technology currently available. So of course the better the planet, the better the technology. They're not going to have energy shields out on Fuyoria but they do on Earth and Qoter. Make sense?
As for time traveling between planets, yes, obviously the better the engine you have, the faster you'd get there. The planets are all quite close to each other, a lot closer than our real solar system's planets are. So therefore it would take less time to get to each one. As for actual times, well, I couldn't say. A rubbish engine would take you several weeks to get from one side of the galaxy to the other but a good, top grade Imperial one would take maybe, I don't know, a day?
Something like that.

I hope this helps and sorry again for the delay.

The GI is the biggest faction, both member-wise and story-wise. As for activity...I'm not sure. I think things are about equal.

But as Aurelia's [half absent] leader, I can say that the GI is the place for anyone who wants to expand, dominate and control. Those who resist tyranny and seek to fight for an actual cause alongside friends would find their home in Aurelia. :P

[I think I posted this in the wrong place before so I am re-posting here]

Hello

It seems like I should join Aurelia, as they seem to have the least amount of players, but I have some questions before I join.

1. I'm notoriously slow. Slow to build, Slow to post, etc. Would they mind having a slow player?

2. What is Bley? I have quite a bit of Blue and Grey LEGO pieces, but Bley? I don't know. Unless its Bluish Grey- the "new" grey.

3. Most of my posts would be small, vinette-style things. I'm kind of new to building anything other than vehicles.

4. The big one: I realize that aliens are cool, but what about the undead. I have an idea for a character who was a human chef, and he had a big catering event. However, the GI, acting on faulty (or was it) intelligence, bombed the crap out him and he died, horribly and painfully, in a fiery blaze. Now, as an undead revenant of some sort, he will do whatever he can to take down the GI.

As an undead something or other, he would fight on the side of Aurelia. He especially hates when innocent bystanders are hurt by the forces of the GI. He probably wouldn't care so much about Marauders unless they harm Aurelians or innocent citizens.

He powers would be a blazing, literally death-defying hatred of the GI, and also he's a really good cook. He would learn more about weapons and explosives as he went on. He could also possibly perform "suicide mission" being as how he already died.

The character couldn't be "killed," but could be destroyed physically. This would cause him to re-form some time later. If the GI was ever defeated, he would cease to exist. When appropriate, he could disguise himself as a normal human by wearing a flight suit with an opaque visor.

Let me know what you think.

Hey! No worries!
In answer to your questions;

1.) Nope! Being slow doesn't matter at all. You can post whenever you want and upload mocs whenever you choose. There is no obligation at all!

2.) Bley is blue-ish grey, the 'new' grey. So there is Dark Bley and Light Bley.

3.) Small creations are fine! It doesn't matter the size!

4.) Your idea about the un-dead. Um, I don't think the undead would be allowed. We are trying to keep as realistic as possible. I'm sure we can work something out though that would suit you. How about, working with that story, your character is very nearly killed. He gets blown up but doesn't quite die and maybe becomes a cyborg or something? He has lots of metal body parts and is only just alive. How does that sound?

Just a few more questions.



1)If, as part of my character's story progression, I featured a minor Aurelian base (on a moon or on a remote part of a planet) that was then compromised by the GI, would this be acceptable?

2)As far as I understand it, my character could not have a lightsaber, but could probably have a hologram of a lightsaber. Also, my character may or may not have a laser weapon because they may or may not have been developed yet and may or may not have seen widespread distribution yet, but they could definitely have some sort of sharp stick which may or may not be augmented by electricity in some way but if it was it would not be as efficient as a non-augmented sharp stick, but my character could definitely have a hologram of a sharp stick augmented by a laser weapon. Does this sound about right?

But seriously, the first question is legitimate. I can't wait to start posting stuff for this!

Uh... haha To your first question, yes that's fine as long as you say that it is only a small base.

As for technology. Holograms, yes. Lightsabres, no. Crude electrified sword device, yes. Energy shields, yes. Laser weaponry, no, not yet but it is currently being developed by the GI. (Although a prototype was stolen for the Aurelians.) However, they are not mass produced yet.

I hope that helps.
