The last time y'all wanted an epic joint culmination it resulted in a peace treaty. Snooze.

Bring on the orkocalypse! It'll be very death of superman - no build up, no sense, no continuity just a lot of rage and punching until everyone drops dead.

Maybe Mike'll make a blingee'd up foil version of the rulebook cover to commemorate it appropriately.

Too bad this is the only official Doomsday so far:

Otherwise we'd have an awesome big fig for the brootalz.

This thread would have made me burst a blood vessel but my job already makes me do that every week.

What Kastrenzo said, also kind of what Arkbrik said. I have misgivings about it being mandatory but otherwise sure why not more content.

Hey, Colette is back!  My hope is that no one has like five more years of story they need to tell in Nehellenium.  Most current storylines should have the opportunity to wrap up in the timeframe of Ragnablok (roughly a year) or be able to continue into the reboot universe.  For example, the Gold Sector Campaign can pretty much ignore Ragnablok since it's already in a bottle universe.  And the level of Kanon you want to take with you post-Ragnablok is totally left up to you.  If Trattoria wants to keep all their old rivalries and go on like Nehellenium never died, they absolutely can.

I updated the Top Post with new fluff (thanks Zahru), new expectations for the end of Ragnablok per our conversations on Discord, and new guidelines for content creation.

The community response so far has been enthusiastic and I think almost every idea presented so far could be integrated in.  I'm looking forward to your content, and also to the arrival of my stupid parts order the Buttnomikon so we can actually start this thing.

I’m not going to be able to rap up my content for while. I’m not in a space where I have space

Edit: with that being said, I can make my stuff adapt I guess

I could actually see Ragnablok being tied into my storyline, if time allows me. Glad I finished the most recent one this summer.

I mean, are you ever going to get around to finishing the Immortal War?

Jokes aside, if this is a widespread feeling then I'll adjust Ragnablok accordingly.

Before we begin ragnablok, we need to make sure that we figure out some kind of non-kanon mechanism that allows factions that do not wish to participate (why wouldn't you though) to remain as they were, although still able to be in battles.

Also, I'm waiting to begin my big forum battle (brikthulu vs brikwarriors) until the end of ragnablok; perhaps this can be one of the final battles of the event, as you had mentioned there might be. I don't exactly have the funds to get excessive cameos of different factions, so I am trying to get everyone to submit only a single character or two for me to make, and I will do my best. *hint hint please sign up here*

With regards to including ragnablok into storylines/story arcs, I think that there should be some sort of contest-like collaboration where entrants post a soap, one after the other, in the same thread for a continuous read of the ragnablok storyline. The soap should include ragnablok into existing storyline, either by noting its effects on the faction or by some other way.  :mystery: This way, we can keep this event organized and have a great way of kicking off the collaborative story arc once it begins. I already factored this in way, way back in my storyline. All the way to the beginning.  :twisted:

One final thing: I'm ok with the brootalz being one of the harbingers of destruction, but isn't my faction basically the same thing? I already went through one story arc and am about to start another; however, the darklords were literally going to be in a ragnablok story ever since I first created them. I previously was waiting until a later date to use up that arc, but hey, now is as good as ever. Whenever I get around to it.  :roll:

tl;dr:
need non-kanon mechanism
sign up for my battle
make a soap series for RB
I'm going to do story :omnom:

Why does it need to be non-kanon?  There's already a kanon reason why both "the end of the universe happens and is reborn anew" and "the universe continues on as it always has" can happen simultaneously.  Trying to keep them separate is kind of a waste of time, in the end.  These guys over here are part of Post-Ragnablok A, Those guys are Pre-Rangablok K, blahblahblah.  The payoff isn't so much in the Reward for Completing an Apocalypse, it's in documenting the process of one of many Apocalypses.

Keep it simple.  This is just one way in which the universe ends.  Time and Space are broken in the BrikVerse anyway.  In one moment, an Empire rises.  In another, no one has ever heard of it.

Quantumsurfer has said it more indignantly but yes, Ragnablok is pretty easy to opt out of.

The Brootal invasion won't happen everywhere all at once so it might never reach your faction, it might happen on some backwater outpost no one cares about, or it might be front and center.

Post-Ragnablok, everyone is free to adapt to the changes as desired, whether that's pretending nothing ever changed or turning your faction into splintered exiles devastated by the destruction.
