After the battle of the Nexus
20200515_192830 by Kastrenzo, on FlickrWhoa... What was that? Uh... It seems that the Humans, the Gods of Time, or Brikthulu himself had been pissed off about the dragging on of this story... Whoever it was. Haphazardly pulled these minifigs forward in time a few months so that they could stop wasting time on boring exposition, and get back to entertaining you!
The Monolith is defeated. A temporary alliance of Imperiya and Stroiteliga forces assaulted the Nexus! Basil Bob with the power of the Dramacron, sacrificed himself to destroy the Evil Crystal. The Crystal turned out to be nothing but a Macguffin and a means for Humans to torture these Minifigs with convoluted plotlines!
With his plot armor vanquished, Shulga is finally dead. Killed by Kast with his own edgelord sword!
During the destruction of the Crystal, parts of it became fused with the recentley rediscovered Imperial Throne, It's Magikal powers have been embued into the Throne, giving whoever controls it, the ability to influence the realm as a whole. Like a God.
Kast Immediately takes the Throne, but with no interest in actually using the power, he calls a meeting between the leaders of the major players of the Realm, to educate them on the path foward before he surrenders the Throne to them.
Kast sits upon the Throne, now called the Nexus Throne for it has been fused into the Realm Nexus.. Accompanied by leaders and representatives of the Imperiya, Stroiteliga, Black Legion and the Molochites
20200515_192847 by Kastrenzo, on FlickrKast: Right... I'm going to make this very simple because I have no interest in sitting on this chair for any longer than I have to, the events of the past few months have just made my head hurt and I want to go nap for a couple FOREVERS...
With our enemy defeated, It's time to decide what's next for the realm. I Appreciate that some of you may object to Charon being here.. but the fact is that they never served our Enemy, The Monolith just teleported them into the Nexus because it knew they wanted to fight the rest of you.. As far as Im concerned, that chapter is over.
You all can go back to killing each other as soon as this is over.
20200515_192952 by Kastrenzo, on FlickrKast: But we have to talk about this fancy chair. As we recentley discovered, it has some of the world altering abilities displayed by the crystal... you could almost say Godlike... I have no interest in this, but I also don't want to see this world ruined.
So I have created this... The Black Book of Laws.. In it, the ruler of the throne will add new laws that each subsequent ruler that follows him or her, is bound to follow. The first and most important, is that regardless of background, origin or ambition, whoever takes the throne has the utmost responsibility to ensure that our world continues to exist, for better or worse...
I'm also making it so that whoever takes the throne must be worthy... meaning you've got to protect your own neck, whether by fighting whoever challenges you, being smart and manipulative.. or just by being a good leader and giving people more reasons to keep you alive than taking your head... Killing an emperor is not a crime as far as the realm is considered!
and lastly, with the exception of the first laws that I'm implimenting, any further law can be repealed.. at the cost of abdication. So if you want to undo something someone else put in, you must give up the title.
Anything after these three, go wild... I don't have time for this shit anymore..
20200515_193033 by Kastrenzo, on FlickrKast: Now, that's it for my time on this ugly ass chair. but as a parting gift. each party here will be given something going forward. Now this first one may Upset some of you, but you can just kill each other if you don't like it.... Since the Throne was originally the property of the Imperiya, I'm handing it over to them for first control... Remember, whoever takes the Throne is responsible for the whole Realm, the lands of their enemies included!..
20200515_193051 by Kastrenzo, on FlickrKast: To Vaclav and the Stroiteliga, I am giving the OT Crown... This prized helmet is a symbol of great leadership and awesomeness.. No matter how successful your enemies may be, they will always feel incomplete without this Helm.
And you will command almost as much respect as any Emperor or Demi-God with this.
20200515_193128 by Kastrenzo, on FlickrKast: To Charon, and the Black Legion, I am giving a fragment of the old world, the Life Stone. A powerful artifakt that can heal mortal wounds... To literally cheat death
20200515_193310 by Kastrenzo, on FlickrKast: And lastly, to Phoenix Rix, and the Order... I give the Golden Blade.. a sacred weapon of war that can cut through any foe..
He stands up, locks up the Black Book and throws it back on the chair
20200515_195408 by Kastrenzo, on FlickrKast: And with that. I'm done here... You've all been given extremely powerful artifakts... and you all no doubt still want to kill each other for the artifakts that your enemies posess.. everyone feels rewarded, and yet everyone feels screwed! .... I'm outta here. have fun!
As Kast Leaves, he also forces everyone except the Imperiya members to teleport back to their homes to avoid a bloodbath in the Nexus

Sergachev has gathered the top Commanders and Generals of the Imperiya for an important decision
20200515_200717 by Kastrenzo, on FlickrSergachev: So with that.. I want you to know that I will -not- be assuming this responsibility, for my priorities still lie with what we've built, not with being custodian for our world. And know that I will still gladly uphold my Allegiance to the throne based on our traditions. So long as our Emperor is Just!
So now it comes to us that we must decide who will take the mantle as the protector of our realm. Doing so is as was mandated, a responsibility to protect the Realm's existence, not it's inhabitants... That's where we come in.
Who among us is willing to take that mantle?
He walks down the isle, pausing in front of one of the Generals whom he sees wearing the looted cloak of Shulga
20200515_200831 by Kastrenzo, on FlickrSergachev: I just want you to know, I find that to be in incredibly bad taste...
20200515_200904 by Kastrenzo, on FlickrSergachev: Who will it be? I hope I don't have to pass this responsibility onto the next group... You're supposed to be our best and brightest!
He sits on the steps of the Throne and an awkward silence echoes throughout the room as he waits impatientely.

A General clad in some odd armor steps forward
20200515_201046 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
He takes off his helmet and removes his mask.
20200515_201138 by Kastrenzo, on FlickrMBB: I accept this task!
Some of the Generals look at each other, their expressions hidden as they're almost all wearing masks and helmets, but the mood is obvious. Some are confused as to who this guy is.
20200515_201346 by Kastrenzo, on Flickr
He clambers on top of the throne and takes the Black Book, Immediately barking into it and yelling throughout the hall
20200515_201831 by Kastrenzo, on FlickrMBB: I AM MAJOR BOOTY BOTHERED, THE LAST SURVIVOR OF GALACIA AND LOYAL SERVANT TO EMPEROR SHULGA LONG MAY HE BE REMEMBERED. AS EMPEROR I SAY THAT LORD BOOTY BOTHERED SHALL REIGN AS EMPEROR FOREVE...
One of the Commanders immediately shoots him in the face

20200515_202003 by Kastrenzo, on FlickrLana: Okay, fuck that guy... I think we need to think this through a little more. and lay some ground rules of our own... first rule, no megalomaniac ass heads?
Sergachev groans in disgust
Sergachev: Ugh.... we're gonna be here a while...
