IRONFALL - Faction Thread (Matt's Server)

Alright, so, like in the ROR forum, Im making this thread in here to since most Ironfallians are brikwarriors. This main thread's purpose is to discuss anything that is related to Ironfall. Allies, territory, projects, etc...

So, soon Ill be posting basic projects for the foundation of our capital and coordinates.

Now an important matter. Matt gaves us the option of being 1 of 5 races. Humans, Dwarves, Elves, Kobolds or Goblins. Since Igneitium is already dwarf, I would suggest Human or Goblin. Please discuss and share your opinion.

Ironfall has always sounded like a Dwarven name to me.

Is Ironfall the representative Brikwars faction?

Not entirely. The whole server is mostly Brikwarrior-populated, with a smattering of LoR guys, who for the most part have their own faction if I'm understanding the situation correctly.

I probably shouldn't be posting in the Ironfall thread if I'm not beholden to the faction, but I just wanted to clarify briefly.

IRL "clan", as in we're very tight.

This is exactly why it isn't a dwarven faction. Or maybe there's some other reason instead.

Well, we did share the previous server with Tempersia, which by all means it is now Dwarven Igneitium. We could say Ironfall had some influence as we still maintain good relations with our allies.

Still, I think having variety would be great for the RPing. Back on track.
The dudes from the LoR are making the Elven faction and their tree capital, I believe we have practically nothing to do with them so I guess Elves are scratched out of the list. Having already Igneitium as the main dwarven faction, making Ironfall another one would make it lose some of it's originality, sort of speak, so I guess we should choose another one. Like I suggested before, Human or Goblin seem to be good choices.

RPing and building as Humans would be easy, for that is our race IRL. They would be overall balanced, although a bit average and generic.
Now goblins would definitely be more interesting. Goblins are oftenly, if not always, described as wild, savage and dumb creatures, submissive to mightier foes. Yet I think Goblins shouldn't always be thought of like that. In some fantasy worlds, goblins are basically "mean" dwarves. They to make great constructions and craft quality items. Their numbers are probably their strength.

It's up to you guys.

Who decided that Tempersia is dwarven? On the old server the architecture of Ironfall looked much more dwarven than the Tempersian style.

I vote that we become human, so that we don't have to represent short people.

Matt did. True that, but now they are making their Capital underground, So i guess that's as dwarfy as it gets. Ironfall will also have lots of underground structures, but they shall be built upon mountains, so although they're "buried" its not really below the regular ground level, quite the opposite.

Be human. Ironfall sounds more human than goblin.
