Quoting Mark Legorski
I got my new race's culture ready and all, just waiting to get one piece, and once I do, I'll post. ;o) Anyone wishing to use it feel free! If anyone wishes to have the culture's write up, email me at legorski@yahoo.ca
I am very interested in this race, so where are they,who are there enemies, whats there culture and religion, and finally are they just manta figs or are they a combination of atlantis heads and torsos?

Very interesting,
it's gonna be hard for my hero to convince them to give him the stone,
though they are friendly to humans, a diplomatic sollution is needed,
I like that, since most other stones require a big fight,
this is something else,
I suppose the stone is being held in the stronghold, underwater :)
Can't wait to see your Temp'la mocs

Where are the lakelands?

Still under construction.
Mark, would you prefer a normal climate (somewhere north) or a warm one (south of Morcia)?

Map is coming soon. I settled them between 2 human kingdoms in a wild land. To the east, a sea and south a small desert.
I may have an idea to make an abandoned street through the lands, the Morica people used to sent their traders to the south selling their special minerals (like the asian silk road). Maybe there the elemental stone could original come from. Humans were sent to hide it but got attacked somewhere on the road. The Temp'la just found it later.

No need to rush and good luck. Get education, a good job and then you'll have much money to buy lots of Legos ;)

This makes it look like land-dwellers and water-wavers are different species.

Not more than the different elven tribes. But i wouldn't use the amour. If Temp'la have fishbodies that bronze plate would be too heavy. The plates are great i'm sure ther're many possible uses for them.

Ooh, I like this Idea. What about magic for the Temp'la? Would they have an area of expertise? (such as shamanism, ect. I just assumed there would be something considering their intelligent race.)

I also have another Idea for a race and subculture. It's really minor, but I think it would add nice variety.

The Kua: A frog/toad like race. They are extremely unintelligent, and are often used as slaves in most Temp'la societies. The Agami also accept some Kua into their scattered clans, but they are rarely acknowledged, just tolerated by the tempered reptilians. The Agami were also first to domesticate them for pit fighting. Above all things, the Kua are loyal to their masters, and never think to deny them unless a shiny object is involved. The Kua are known for stealing glittering items, and stashing them back in their burrows or slave quarters. When found in the wild, they live in small mud burrows, or beneath the roots of a tree in damp areas. They have a naturally slick skin and feed off of insects and fish found in swamps. Some also have poison that can be secreted through the skin. The Kua know near no magic at all, and are incapable of learning it. Some, however, have become adept at 'mudslinging', the extent of a 'casters' ability. They can sling mud, from even dry places, yet no one knows why. Some Kua can become intelligent and literate beings, but only through rigorous amounts of training by a gracious master. This is often expected for slaves of noblemen. It is at this point were question begins to draw. Some do choose to run away to join a more socially inclined society, but often fail because of their short disposition. The Kua are never used as fighters either, as the extent of their fighting ability remains with clubs and other (often wooden) blunt weapons.

The design for a Kua would be using short legs with flippers, no hair, or sometimes a farmer's cowl.

Just a suggestion, I thought it was cool. :)

Yes, my thought exactly, I just can't wait to see the face. XD

Unfortunately, there's only one fig in the "Portal of Atlantis" set which isn't very cheap so having them is not that easy. I would like to have a few of the armors anyway.

Thought about the Kua: Stingray-heads or a brickbuild face or other?

Well, looking at the original concept I intended to use various minifig faces on them like the 'merfolk' heads used in the harry potter sets, which in my opinion look more like frog faces. :) this was just the original idea though.

Harry Potter had great fantasy figs, too abd i don't have much from it and bricklink is expensive. The good thing is that Legonia can be made from different guys here. So if somebody of you can build the races we haven't pics yet, make a small vig i can add to the wiki, please.

The Temp'la was a good idea because the figs are easy to get.

UPDATE: I checked out the manta-ray faces at they do look a lot like frog faces! I'm also working on a brick built head, so I'll post the available varieties or them in a few weeks. (it's finals week: Yay! *with intense sarcasm*)

This is a plausible idea however, correct?

Well, i could write in their background, that they're related in earlier evolution, that explains possible similarity in appearance. At least, both are fishcreatures and living together mostly, so why no mixing?

Aside, we should name the Temp'la kingdom/lakelands(political) "The big clan" or something. Just to seperate the political structured lakeland colonies from Temp'la in other regions/societies. So Temp'la are not bound to their faction anymore.

I get it, but the original idea was to have the Kua be an unintelligent slave-race of more frog or toad like people. I'm posting the original idea today, so tell me what you think.

When 2 dominant races grow up aside each other, one will always be the more developed. Basic rule of darwinism. The Temp'la, maybe also the Agami would interrupt the Kua's evolution and culture development in a heavy way. That's why they're soo stupid today. Logical, not? :)

Well, who invents a race, is its god. I (aka big something) am just the canonizer spinning the world together in a believable way.
