Why not align the waist part instead of the legs alone? It ruins the printing.

I guess I could ask them. The waist printing has to align with the torso print too of course. It's all in how you do the rigging, and nobody likes rigging.

Wait, you don't think that waking up in a cloning tube because some asshole killed you the other day isn't a motive for revenge? Even if you didn't remember it, someone would eventually tell you.

In the trailers I've seen he is on some indian funeral pyre and is thought to be dead.
Either he wasnt or indian magic brought him back, I don't know.
So he wears a mask so people don't know he is not dead.


Having a black torso and blue waist and leg printing is odd.

So this has inspired me to finally codify something that's been kicking around in the back of my head for awhile now: Canon

Canon wrote:In a deeply fractured multi-timeline reality like the BrikVerse, it's difficult to tell which version of events "really" happened even when Humans are witnessing them directly. Some events have more authority than others, and the truths of today might be obliterated by even truer truths tomorrow.

Canon is the official version of reality at any given moment. Gaining control of Canon, whether at the local, universal, or inter-universal level, is more important than any victory, since victories and defeats can be erased or reversed by a simple shift in Canon.

Events, characters, and creations become Canon when they are remembered and, more importantly, become part of a continuity of other events - even if they never happened! An individual point of Canon (known as a Particle Canon) may be awesome enough to cause a Retkon - creating thousands of years of past backstory for itself out of thin air, for instance, inserting itself into other Canon stories long after they have ended, or change crucial details of other Particles' nature.

The most important factor to events having any permanence in the fractured timeline is the quality of pictures taken. Proper photography is so important that unphotographed events delete themselves from history entirely, as reflected in the scriptural admonition "Pics Or It Didn't Happen."

The more awesome, compelling, memorable, hilarious, or traumatic a Particle of Canon is, the more power it has to usurp or override previous points of Canon. It is widely believed that this was the cause of the great universal shattering in R. 1,977, as the Deadly SpaceMen created points of Canon at an accelerating rate and with corresponding accelerating awesomeness. The new Canon compounded with itself, causing metahistorical revision in infinite recursion, dividing reality itself by zero and cascading into the singularity known as the Explosive Canon Ball.

Still very rough but hopefully you get the idea.

G.R. is better than R. When did we switch to R. and why?

I got rid of the "Galaktik" because it's too specific. A timeline might be the size of a galaxy, sure, but it can just as easily be a billion interconnected dimensions of a billion galaxies each, or it might be a single yellow castle with a McDonald's set on the side. And the timeline that's half a baseplate this year might be an interdimensional cross-universe epic next year.

I still like G.R because R. is too short and insubstantial, and a little confusing to me.

I think keeping the abbreviation as an artifact of older times, ala the SAT, would be good.

If Galaktik isn't big enough then call them Great Rekonstruktions or, even better, B.R. -- Brik Rekonstruktion aka Battle Royale.
