Plates, Sometimes called Plate Worlds or Plate Regions are compact, flat worlds that exist in a different dimension than that of contemporary Galaxies. A plate world begins and ends at the edge of a Plate world's Baseplates. Travel between plates is normally assisted by either teleportation, portal, or flight via spaceship or some other means, depending on the Realm.

Realms are the largest of the Plate world groupings. They house Thousands, to Tens of thousands of plates. And they are often subject to their own physical laws and phenomenon. Realms may be further divided into Clusters of plates that exhibit similar biomes or features. They may also be used when Plates are spread apart, much like how stars would be in a galaxy. With void space between them.

Space on the plates is limited, so Minifigs will try to make the most out of what room is availabile on their plate worlds. Often times though, the lack of available room is a catalyst for drama and war.

Cartographers, Bureaucrats and tryhards will often categorize or group large swathes of neighboring plates into Plate realms , which then are broken down into smaller groupings within the realm. Plate groupings will often, but do not always share similar features or characteristics.

Travel between plates is typically restricted to teleportation, whether magikal or tek assisted. But Spaceships can fly through Voidspace, just like regular Space, and travel to whichever plate they want. Minifigs also link many of the plates together through Voidspace by constructing one-way portals on the edges of their plates, that exit on the edges of neighbor plates and vice versa, allowing Minifigs without Teleporters and Spaceships, to travel between them, albeit at a much slower and more directed path

A grouping of Unknown Plates, some are linked together with portals, which have been laid out into a road network making travel between them as simple as driving a car

Notable Plate Realms

Monolith Battleplates - A realm of thousands of plates that was created by the disintegration and reassembly of the Gold Sector from the Galaxia Nehellenium, Known for anomalous materials and paranormal activity. Namely functional Immortality.


Plate Worlds are an alternative look at the worldbuilding of the brikverse. In laymans terms, it treats a player's table and the baseplates they put down... as the entirety of a setting. From a Minifig's perspective, the table with the baseplates is his entire world. There are no imaginary planets or cities far away. Just the physical, flat world he stands on. The lack of space and resources in a plate realm is a catalyst for the kind of violence brikwars is known for.
