Journal History

I reeaally apologize for my complete lack of being here. I have some boring updates on life; new well-paying job, newfound fascination with LEGOs, and new work on some projects.

Work is great and I enjoy talking with people all day and playing with the cash register, but that's boring. Moving on!

In terms of LEGO, there's this game that has appeared called Mobile Frame Zero: Rapid Attack. The jist of it is that you build companies of "frames" (read mecha) and assign certain abilities to them depending on weapons, systems, and armor you give them, then battle it out with a friend. As your frame takes damage, it loses systems and your opponent gets to mercilessly rip them off of your frame until it is just a pile of pieces. It's really fun, and just fun to build. The rules are free to download too! (though you can buy it to help support them)

We're within spitting distance of finishing the rough draft of Digimon: Encounters, and Nemonus has already had the chance to create a character! Using her as our guinea pig, we can make a few on-the-fly changes and tweaks to character creation to smooth out the process. Overall, things are looking good! And as always, we gladly accept help any of you are willing to contribute. 

And speaking of contributors, I would like to thank those who have already offered their abilities in this project. You guys are awesome:

Thanks for the fave Victor.  I post a lot of lego robots so if you want to see more you should check out my 'Toys' gallery!
Riptor25 Dec 12, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
No prob! I'll definitely do that. By the way, have you ever heard of a game called Mobile Frame Zero?
Jandyman Dec 13, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I certainly have!  It's exactly what inspired me to make robots like this.  I mean, I was already wanting to make lego robots before I found it (I'm big sci-fi micro-scale fan), but like finding MFZ has heavily influenced my style of robots.  Some I build from scratch, some I borrow the basic frame design from MFZ models.  I'm starting to get to a point in the middle now, where my own designs are getting better and I'm using more good techniques without them being directly taken from someone else's design.

However, I haven't played the game because I don't know any tabletop gamers I could persuade into investing into enough lego to play, and I don't know any AFOLs near enough to play full-stop. It's a real drag!

PS.  Did you make your animated avatar yourself?  I have a pixel-art animation section in my gallery. It's all stuff from a game I've been writing.  You should take a look!  The animation is what wows everyone when I've shown the game to others B-)

Sounds like we're in about the same situation. I've yet to play the game myself, mainly because there's nobody else around who does much tabletop wargaming. The guy that introduced me to MFZ left like 2 weeks after he told me about it lol, so now I'm stranded. I now just make frames and post pictures and stats on the forums. 

I originally started my microscale hobbying by making micro starships with the old X-Pod sets. Now that Alpha Bandit has been released for MFZ, I get to do that all over again! I'll probably post pictures of my more recent frames along with some ships soon. (Also, are you on the forums or facebook page?)

lol Yes I did! I have a bunch of little animated avatars that I switch between depending on the year (which reminds me that I need to change to my winter one). I'll have to check out your pixel animation. I enjoy pixel pictures for the same reason I enjoy microscale legos; making the most out of the least! I'll definitely have to check out what you've got in your gallery!
