Alright, so at the moment in the brikverse we've finally got something of a plot-line going on that could be used for like actual game hooks and produce some pretty interesting results, I know a lot of the akkadian/piltogg/artifax/penises/third alliance related story bits, because that's what I'm involved with, but there are probably bunches of things going on with other people's armies that could also be directly related. So, I felt that it would be nice if we could use this thread to kind of compile some story bits into something that we can work with more easily so that we can have more of an active role in the brik-universe than just a everybody is killing everybody else or there's an alliance foring and there's a war going on sort of storyline. You know? Like I feel like the game would be greatly enriched if we had some sort of springboard to launch our games off of based in an epic story. So I'll provide all of the information related to the stuff that I know a lot about, in a condensed text form, and then you guys can comment about some other stuff that's going on currently. Please don't mention things if they could only possibly apply to your army, as this section should be about the brik-verse in general, and not just about some certain faction trying to gain more planets or something.
The age of the great revolutions
These are the ancient times, with official legore, megablok and so on story-lines for official themes. This period of history encompasses all of the sets and characters that have already been provided for us, and it's chronological order is based off of the year that the set was produced in. It can make for some pretty great battles, and you don't need to do as much planning work to make it interesting, because all that's already been done for you. It isn't really necessary to describe this part of history, as any AFOL would be able to tell you a lot about it. It's a time of pureism, and worship of the great builder. "the good old days", i.e. when you were a kid and played with legos.
The age of random ass alliances and shit
this would be the whole immortal war, third alliance, allied nations, triangleists and various random battles that people have played out in any army vs. army sort of way. In this era, things are pretty simple, people just sort of build armies and then have those armies shoot or slash at each-other until one of the armies is dead. It's nothing terribly interesting, but everyone gets all hot ad bothered about what alliance they are in, and whether they star nation is pro- or anti- some sort of thing and it's all rather silly and pointless.
the age when shit just got real
This is the age where big problems start to arise, while everyone was busy shooting the shit and forming alliances, the forces of true evil began to grow and to take hold in the brik-verse. Peach mutations, and nega-verse incursions run rapid. Talk of raving penis hordes frighten space-sailors everywhere, causing entire civilizations to become peaceful and friendly. Blokbots, and self-replicating androids aim to wipe out all of minifig kind. And cults of various descriptions are a prevalent feature in nearly every civilization, brikthulu being a primary deity. Meanwhile, taking advantage of all this chaos, crime syndicates of various forms are forming all across the galaxy; space pirates, drug-dealers, mafias, assassins, and even entire secret societies are now all quite common place. Why all of this is occurring is not quite certain. But many speak of a coming Ragnablok.
