-- Under Construction,
just going to be a little rinky-dink page to show my stuff, no point in posting it on the forums since it's already been seen months ago and nothing is new. ~Kastrenzo
Brikrigton is a mid sized world in a hostile region of space, The planet has been been the site of several invasions and internal conflicts, Including several Negaverse Minion invasions, The constant wars on this world have prevented a single entity from rising to power. and whenever a faction did rise to dominate the planet, it wouldn't be long before it either fell apart internally or was taken off it's throne by rebellions.
The earliest known religion was based on which color brik a fig would come into existence *or to be born* Under. The meanings of each color have long been forgotten, but it is widely accepted that there were originally six colors in the cycle. These would later be used for national identities, and the number would grow to 12.
The Original Colors that a Minifig would be "born under", Which later came to represent the six most powerful Nations. White, Red, Black, Yellow, Green and Blue.
And years later, an additional six Lesser Nations would develop. Using the following to represent their states. Dark Grey, Light Grey, Orange, Tan, Brown and Lime
The Brikrigton war of G.R 2013 is slated to be the largest conflict yet in the planet's brief history, however large the armies are, they are realistically in no condition to be fighting. All the previous wars and invasions have crippled the planet's industrial capability. Resulting in very few combat vehicles or other war machines ready for action. Most armies emphasize on heavy use of Light Infantry and what vehicles are available are greatly valued for their shock role.
No one really knows what is the cause of this latest war, suggestions including but not limited to "Which Color is supreme", "Which form of government is best" and "who has the ugliest hat"
Minifigs first colonized the planet sometime between G.R 1994-1996, Figs of all backgrounds and colors lived and worked together until G.R 2000, The first of three Nega invasion caused the minifigs of Brikrigton to band together and start to organize militias, Based on their Birth Color, these militias would develop into small proper armies. There would be a Nega invasion in G.R 2002 and a third in 2003. by then the people of Brikrigton had formed into a single entity, The Brikrigton Empire, it would be a short lived power, as it was intended to give equal rights to all six color castes, however it was largely dominated by the Whites.
The Color castes would squabble and bicker until G.R 2005 when the Reds and Blacks split from the Empire, and it became less about unity and more about Nationalism, A war would break out between the Loyalists and Sepratists, which would fracture the Empire even further, The Yellows, Greens and Blues would all declare their independence and pick sides in the conflict, or in the case of the Yellows, abstain from the civil war completley. The Yellow state became isolationist and began experimenting with cybernetics.
The Civil War would Last until G.R 2007, The Conflict primarily consisted of the Whites against the Black/Red Alliance. The Blues would fight with the Whites for a time, and the Greens joined the Sepratists. in time the Blues and Greens would both exit their alliances and join together. This was also short lived, By war's end. Each of the major powers had broken all ties with each other and entered a period of rebuilding and rearming. After the Civil war, a Number of minor Nations would pop up, And in the Green state, an outbreak of peach skin condition was discovered, a signifigant majority of the green state would become peach by G.R 2012
Nations of Brikrigton
The Biggest Players of the Brikrigton battlefields
The Whites are an Expansive Totalitarian state with one Minifig at the seat of it's government, The White Emperor and his inner council rule the White Nation with an iron fist. Their Empire is a massive military-industrial complex, possesing the single largest production capability of all the major powers, in turn this has given the Whites the largest and arguably best equipped standing army on the planet. However their equipment is not as high quality as the Reds, nor are their troops as well trained as the Blacks.
The Blacks are a Somewhat reliable democracy, having it's leadership elected by it's populace. The Blacks have a long standing history with the Whites and Reds Most of it bad, Having been the principle enemy of the White Empire for many years, as well as former allies turned hated enemies with the Red Union, The Blacks have built up a significant Military force, going as far as being recognized as the Second most powerful state up until the emergence of the Machine Consensus/Blue Sovereignty Alliance. Now the power balance is arguably equal between the two of them. The Black military is roughly 1/2 the size of the Whites, but it makes up for it's lack of numbers in troop training. The Blacks have the best trained military of all the Major powers.
The Reds are a Communist state ruled by a single party who advocate equality for all citizens, and who have heavy emphasis on Military strength. The Reds fought alongside the Blacks during the civil war, the Red-Black alliance was the most powerful alliance in Brikrigton's history. Going as far as being a serious threat to the Whites. Eventually the war took it's toll on both sides, and Resentment between the Blacks and Reds began to emerge due to their disagreements on governance. Namely the arguement between single party politics and open elections. The Red Union' Military is Smaller then the Black Republic by about 1/4 or 1/3 but remains a signifigant power due to their superior weaponry, Union Infantry equipment ranges from moderate to high quality, but their Vehicles are arguably better than White or Black opponents
The Machine Consensus, Formerly known as the Yellow State, were once a nation of technologically adept minifigs who had a passion for robotics and cybernetics. During the Civil war the Yellows closed themselves away and began experimenting with Cybernetic implants and Cyborg applications. The entire nation was equipped with cybernetic implants, and then it backfired. The AI used as a hub for all of the independent machines became self aware, Took control of what Yellow Minifigs it could, killed the ones it could not. And started creating a Machine Race. The situation worsened when the Whites tried to hack control of the Intelligence. And it began turning it's Machines and Cyborgs into war tools. The Consensus military wing is primarily comprised of Robotic Combat Platforms of several classes and sizes. as well as re-engineered Cyborg Minifigs created from corpses and cybernetic implants. The Consensus entered in an alliance with the Blue Sovereignty *Which is more or less the Blues answering to the Intelligence* as the Blues have seemingly put themselves on the same path as the former Yellow state.
The Blues are a fickle, confused bunch. The Blues originated as a Sovereign state fighting on the side of the Whites during the Civil war. At first they were a highly religious monarchy, after the revealing of the Machine Consensus years later, several loonies in the Blue state began to preach of the Capabilities of technology as a blessing from the almighty/s. The Blues would enter their own internal conflict, Religious Traditionalists against Technological Zealots, the Latter won. and the Blue State is now a Technology worshiping cult so to speak. The Blues leadership are under the control of the Intelligence, which in turn has made the Sovereignty an Independent, yet obedient arm of the Machine Consensus. The Blues do not use Robotics, They have a number of Implants but they primarily focus their research and development into energy and energy weaponry. Sovereignty troops are comparable to any other state's military, other than their larger number of advanced weapons, and unorthodox tactics handed down by their machine overlords. The Remnants of the original Monarchy are still alive, but have gone into hiding.
The Minor Nations of Brikrigton, all have aligned themselves with one of the great powers, with the exception of the Tans and Brown, who have foolishly tried to create their own fully independent state
