I have loved this game, and sad that a). I didn't get into it earlier, and b). that I don't have more time now or then to contribute as much as desired. The past storyline still remains as a testiment to what a cool game this was! And I am also looking forward to the game mentioned by Mark
Greetings Ailhbe! I do believe Ferncroft is south of the border and part of Loreos. As a Lenfel, I hope you choose the great independent nation, but whichever faction you choose to join, welcome to LoR! While things are a bit slow, if you ever want to see some of the neat builds and stories, look through the older posts and Global competitions to get a grasp of the rich history of this game and amazing contributions made my a great number of builders; past builds can be truly inspiring!
The city is a smaller scale version of this. Also it will help to offset player abandonment. Should a player move on and choose to not participate for an extended period of time, the city (fief) can still flourish.
Cool!! Thank you Merc! This really helped put this into perspective for me! I really like the faction idea, as players can help each other out in game without having to do a whole build (unless they wanted to). Honestly, I really like this system, with only one possible exception.
The city idea is also good for a city AND a player's resources, as a player can only have a fief (and thus a town/city) once they achieve a certain rank. That way non-fief members can collect resources themselves.
Now for the cons about "City/Fief". Having separate points for the city AND the player might be confusing to some new players (opinions everyone?).
The other thought: do we want to require a rank level for a fief? If I am building stuff, I would want to be able to build in my "fief" even though I am many points away from being an actual lord and having a fief. What might be better would be if past a certain rank you can have an additional "fief", and later get another one past an even higher rank.
Otherwise, I like this system. It doesn't seem over complex to me personally, and though it doesn't take into account war schematics, I like this alot!
Any updates lately guys? I know if anyone has a schedule like mine, then free time has been a limited commodity reserved for relaxing, attempting to unwind, and pretending for short periods of time that life isn't as busy as it actually is
Thats cool. Interesting new pieces such as the wands, on the other hand I think the nostalgic part of me will miss the lightsaber wands and everyone being normal minifigure height, even though being short children makes sense, and overall the minifigures look more accurate to the film. Still will be neat
Based upon the ongoing discussion of new scoring system to directly affect the game. A few players volunteered to make builds and then post along with how their builds would score in the discussed rules. This is meant as a constructive observation where players can discuss and thus refine a new scoring system, and where players like me can better understand how this all works. Thanks for everyone who is able to help with this!
