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


Immortal war isn’t really my thing, it was IM story stuff mostly. Again, I can make it work with whatever so no point in waiting on me. It’s going to be awhile

Battle first, make up justifications afterward. That's the BrikWars way.

Given the ramifications of Ragnablok, you may want to move this thread to somewhere other than the sub-forum whose only purpose is archiving old battles.

Anyway yeah, I like the idea. You can make up whatever reason for why it does or doesn't affect you. And having it on a countdown clock, it's a nice way of stopping what happened with New York I/II, and ultimately lead to that shitty peace treaty (I'd add a addendum that the clock ticks down by 1 every X days regardless of battles/soaps/fics). As a community, we have a track record of starting things, but rarely ending them in a satisfying way, the clock fixes that.

Not too sure if the Brootalz are a strong enough foe to carry it. Anything extra that can be thrown in? Would also help people who don't have suitable parts around for Brootalz.

If things look slow, I will probably add a time based tickdown.  Something like "one month of inactivity = one tickdown".  Alternatively I could always just run something myself  :lol:

You can definitely play with other enemies!  Skeletons, zombies, dimmies, barnacles, mobsters, etc.  Basically anyone who benefits from or creates chaotic violence.  Some people have expressed interest in pulling in some version of the Riders of the Apocalypse, and Brikthlulus would be welcome as well.  Since Ragnablok happens no matter what, the Brootalz and their allies don't have to necessarily achieve anything in particular - they are not a foe to be beaten any more than volcanoes and earthquakes are.

Darkstorm wrote: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:

Well how about we revive the DRK and have it back stronger than ever? I had plans to get around to making Phoenicia much, much more powerful, however I can still revive the DRK, since the whole point was that it couldn't die unless every darklord dies (and that will never happen) and to have a kind of literally-the-manefestation-of-darkness thing going on. I am also thinking of making them a kind of usable faction to others, obviously for only evil purposes, kind of like warhead shards and other related things.

Obviously keeping the brootalz, I think that my DRK faction is basically a perfect fit for this role, considering my intentions for them from the beginning. Thoughts?

It was all the rage for a bit and then sputtered out after my 6-month absence on the forum.

The faction was built upon the thought that I was going to have them expand very quickly, then get pushed back, then regrow into a new faction which would be my main one. At the same time, I am still planning on putting out storyline that involves ragnablok, although slightly altered now that it's happening very shortly. The DRK is supposed to have a certain thing happen to it and blah blah nobody cares yet I'll get there eventually. I was and still am only offering my faction as another to use to fight against for ragnablok. I'm not expecting the event to revolve around me or any of my participation, however, I volunteered myself upon the request of previous comments:

Anyone been in contact with Scythe over this and the Immortal War? as I am pretty sure he does have 5 years worth of stuff to do. Getting the Immortals (Or a portion of them, I'd certainly throw Omicron Legion in) as part of Ragnablok would help round out the possible villains list.

For what it's worth I do have a rough sketch of 5 year's worth of stuff for my own little Immortal War Sigma Campaign, which is why I'm slightly less than enthusiastic about this whole thing. At the same time I don't have the energy or involvement to step in the way.

I didn't realize anyone was actually even still running the Immortal War... My assumption was that the Immortals would be as concerned about the end of the universe as anyone else, so I didn't include them as a Ragnablok villain.  I also didn't want to make it Immortal War 2 or create the impression that beating the Ragnablok enemies would prevent Ragnablok.

It would be mean of me to force anyone to throw out years of planned stuff, but I can only offer you the reassurance that if your Kanon is extremely congealed you will be able to view Ragnablok as a mere hiccup.

I've been planning something epic for a long time now, and your plans for ragnablok in no way impedes my ability to procrastinate about it.
