For the newbies who would like to participate in the Nehellenium Galaxy, one of the biggest complaints has been the sheer amount of backstory that has built over the past decade or so. Thus I present a "BrikVerse Nehellenium Kanon Summary in <300 Words" for your reading pleasure, summarizing all the relevant major galactic wars and backstory in <300 words with relevant wiki pages linked for further details.
Getting involved is as simple as building a bunch of LEGO figs and vehicles (don't worry if it's small or shitty, it can grow), making up some scifi star empire/faction/organization with something resembling a backstory (don't worry if it sounds stupid, you can revise it later), and posting it on the forums for everyone to enjoy. At that point you can set your BrikWars battles in an existing galactic conflict, or make up your own war, and fight other factions either you or other members have made.BrikVerse Nehellenium Kanon Summary in <300 Words wrote:These conflicts are set among empires in the Nehellenium Galaxy, and some satellite dwarf galaxies.
The ongoing Immortal War started in G.R. 2009 with the Fall of Fico when the Immortals/allies (e.g. Britannia, TTSJs) invaded the galaxy and fought the Anti-Immortal Alliance (e.g. Scythia, Assyria, USA). The Third Alliance (TA) (e.g. Bavaria, Trion, Venice) fights both sides.
The ongoing Communo-Fascist Insurgency began in G.R. 2015 when the USSSR and Space Nazis allied (in Germania-Moskau Axis) to attack the Unified Republik of Poland (URP) and Magyar. URP formed the Intermarium Coalition (e.g. URP, IM, Venice) to fight them off. Unlike other major wars the Communo-Fascist Insurgency is more regional than galactic.
Miscellaneous: The threat of M-Throne invasion looms over the galaxy.
Historical wars that ended:
- (~G.R. 2010): Triangulist-FoBoB War was fought over religion differences between Triangulists (e.g. Tyronia, Assyria) and FoBoB (e.g. Silvaria). Ended indecisively.
- (G.R. 2012-2015): AN-TA War started with the TA leaving and destroying the Allied Nations. NATO (e.g. USA, Trattoria, Praetoria) formed, fought the TA indecisively. War ended with the Treaty of Planet Versailles which reformed the AN with the TA rejoining. NATO then de-facto disbanded.
- (G.R. 2014): Denmark-Empryan War (aka 1st N00b War) was fought over peach rights between Denmark/allies (e.g. Valoros, Bavaria, Shadovia) and EPÉEN (e.g. Emeria, Emprya, Phaleks). Ended indecisively when the Space Mafia took over Emeria.
