IMPORTANT!!! CRITICAL READfor switch over to new Official Faction Thread, updates, LC-16 results and GC9
- GC9 is up, really this is an easy one to build for as anything involving Recovery from all this warfare and strife works well. Try to build in all three categories, but if not, at least an Unrestricted or Restricted for the team! Deadline is Dec 31st, so plenty of time left. Counts for CCC if you’re into that, there will be personal points too, but I won’t have an LC until it’s over. Click Here for GC 9 The Recovery.
- Scores are updated, including for LC-16 results. Brick Madness has become our first to pass 150 personal points and become a “Soldier” of Lenfald, my congratulations on that step. Also, we are now down to 22 members.
- LC-16 Stonewald, Capital of Honor and Strength Winners!
A hearty congratulations to both Mitah Val Karem and Sir Haymar Glen, well-deserved! While Mitah is a veteran of four LC wins now, this is Sir Haymar’s first win here at LoR; congratulate them both!
These builds (and some of the others) will be featured on our new Lenfald Official Faction Thread.
- CRITICAL NOTE: And speaking of the NEW OFFICIAL FACTION THREAD, I am creating a new one and will make the final switch-over to it this next FRIDAY EVENING. So be sure to check in next Saturday to see the improvements.
Why a new Official Lenfald Thread, you ask? Because the current structure of this one’s first post is now too odious to expand on. Basically, having everything in one post up front has led to an obnoxious BB Code stream which both limits expansion and drives me nuts at the same time. One change in the membership rolls screws the code up somewhere else above and everything then gets muddled up. There’s a wrench in the works there but… Much more importantly, it allows for expansion of key Lenfel characteristics because I will reserve the first 7 posts and be able to edit them for expansion. So the first 7 will be:
1st post: Faction Intro, Description, Geography, Map, Leadership, Example Citizens, and Table of Contents of the following: 2nd post: Major Cities of Lenfald 3rd post: Monuments, Wonders, and Lore 4th post: Culture, Orders and Armies of Lenfald 5th post: Local Challenges (Past and Current), Ranks breakdown, Membership Roll, and Help for New Members (such as setting up your signature block). 6th post: A brief History of Lenfald, with the current political situation explained. 7th post: Lenfald Introductory Challenge
So when we have a future LC for Wonders of Lenfald, the FO/FL can post the best entries into the 3rd Post to update what’s already there. If we have a later LC for Lore, then we can expand it again for additional material. And the Cities post can grow as needed. Individual monthly or GC builds can be added when they add to any of these subjects, all for a comprehensive exposition of our Province.
Why the history? It gives us a great place to put important builds like Mitah Val Karem ’s Death to the Usurper which do not fit anywhere else, and also our global storyline will soon change from open warfare to more nuanced plots, and having the history will help.
So if you are needing to do a little research on our faction, everything is up front at your fingertips, and prospective newcomers will have lots of great things to look at to draw them in.
I will have as the last post on this thread here a link to the new one, which you will need to bookmark like you did this one, and then it will be locked and unstickied on Friday night so the old thread can fall down the list.
Are there any objections to or suggestions for this plan?

Why don't you just delete this thread once you get the new one formatted? Because if new member search "Lenfald Faction Thread" in Google, they may stumble upon this, which, as of Friday, will become virtually obsolete.
Just a small suggestion, take it or leave as you may.

Wow! So thrilled I won, and hearty congratulations to Mitah Val Karem as well, The Heart Tree definitely deserved first place! Thanks to Sir Caelan Munro for hosting such an awesome contest. On other matters, here is my first free-build for November, and the latest installment of Sir Haymar's story.
....so people can see all the previous LCs and builds posted.
BN's on-target. This old thread will eventually fall to the bottom of the list, but we don't want to lose the history and previous builds.
Hmmmmmm....only NON-LENFELS chiming in on the new thread idea....SILENCE IS CONSENT. And speaking of consent, unless otherwise protested, the below picture is our new faction intro emblem, to replace the less-than-eye-catching one at the start of this thread. The Elk emblem is curtesy of Mitah Val Karem who clearly has talent apart from LEGO-building and has created all the T-shirt emblems LoR is now using. The background pic is mine from a family trip to beautiful Bavaria when living in Germany. If curious, the castle is Hohenschwangau with the Alpsee in the background....
Well, you put me in an awkward position here, since I really don't have enough time (and space to build regularly, I always have to clear my dinner table to use as building space) by your statement I must have talent . But It amazes me that your builds didn't get more votes in the last LC.
