The system of Reval is only a few sectors away from Strazzel IX where the Briktopians originated. It consists of several two-dimensional planes floating in space. Some of the planes are covered with baseplates but most of them are barren plains with a few brick constructions here and there. The minifigs do not know what these planes are made of, neither does it matter to them. They are solid, they can walk, build and fight on them.

Like all minifig civilizations of the [[BrikVerse]], the sole purpose of the Briktopians is constant warfare featuring the most hilarious amounts of wanton destruction. Where possible the Briktopians will follow the way of [[SNOT]], finesse and color coordination. Briktopia is led by [[Mirduk]], the philosopher king, and appointed Archons effectively making it an Epistocracy. The philosopher king has mastered not only the art of warfare or how to rule but is also learned about quasi-immortality. In case he is killed he mysteriously returns.

Every other minifig in Briktopia belongs to the guardian caste which means they are brought up and trained as warriors. Most Briktopians get standard training which makes them proficient users of most arms. Some receive special training and become pilots or specialists for certain purposes (e.g. for close or unarmed combat, sniping, fireworks etc.). The most talented ones, whose skills vastly exceed those of the regular guardians are given command over parts of the Briktopian Armed Forces as Strategos. They are the true heroes of Briktopia.

When they are not waging battles all the Briktopins spend their "freetime" in a virtual reality environment similar to the Maytricks.

The philosopher kings designed this virtual reality to both quench and produce the bloodthirst resident within all Briktopians. Also it serves as extra training grounds. From time to time some know it all minifigs claim that du to the nature of the Brikverse and the power of koincidence the protagonists and happenings on [[Revalus]], even the place itself is anything but virtual.

Overview

The Epistocracy of Briktopia was founded in R. 2,009 on Strazzel IX only a few months after the dark ages ended in that system. Initially the Briktopians warred against the Krude Konstruktion Kingdom which was helped by Deadly Spacemen. Eventually, in early R. 2,010 the Briktopians were forced to leave Strazzel IX in an Exodus wich lead them to the system of Reval. Some time later, towards the end of R. 2,010, it turned out that the Krude Konstruktion Kingdom was secretly funded by the Immortal Empire. Now, in R. 2,013 the conquest of Reval by the Briktopians is in full swing. At the same time the Briktopians are improving and growing their military in preparation for the upcoming Immortal War.

Reval

The system of Reval is only a few sectors away from Strazzel IX where the Briktopians originated. It consists of several two-dimensional planes floating in space. Some of the planes are covered with baseplates but most of them are barren plains with a few brick constructions here and there. The minifigs do not know what these planes are made of, neither does it matter to them. They are solid, they can walk, build and fight on them.

Reval is not uninhabitated though. Deadly Spacemen reside here. There have been sightings of the Krude Konstruktion Kingdom, Pirates and as of late even Akkadians.

Structure and Society

Like all minifig civilizations of the BrikVerse, the sole purpose of the Briktopians is constant warfare featuring the most hilarious amounts of wanton destruction. Where possible the Briktopians will follow the way of SNOT, finesse and color coordination. Briktopia is led by Mirduk, the philosopher king, and appointed Archons effectively making it an Epistocracy. The philosopher king has mastered not only the art of warfare or how to rule but is also learned about quasi-immortality. In case he is killed he mysteriously returns.

Every other minifig in Briktopia belongs to the guardian caste which means they are brought up and trained as warriors. Most Briktopians get standard training which makes them proficient users of most arms. Some receive special training and become pilots or specialists for certain purposes (e.g. for close or unarmed combat, sniping, fireworks etc.). The most talented ones, whose skills vastly exceed those of the regular guardians are given command over parts of the Briktopian Armed Forces as Strategos. They are the true heroes of Briktopia.

When they are not waging battles all the Briktopians spend their "freetime" in a virtual reality environment similar to the MayTricks. There, they relive the battles fought on a place called Revalus, putting them back into a time of medieval warfare. The philosopher kings designed this virtual reality to both quench and produce the bloodthirst resident within all Briktopians. Also it serves as extra training grounds. From time to time some know-it-all minifigs claim that due to the nature of the BrikVerse and the power of koincidence, the protagonists and happenings on Revalus, even the place itself, is anything but virtual. Those minifigs are duly executed.

Leaders & Heroes

Mirduk, Apollyon, Colonel Raszack, General Lukas

Mirduk, the philosopher king, is the supreme ruler of Briktopia. It was him who at the dawn of the Dark Ages created the ideal minifig society based around constant warfare.

Strategoi of Briktopia:

Apollyon is the most prominent hero of Briktopia. It was him who first suggested to start building superweapons. Currently he is concerned with organizing and training the Briktopian Ghost Division.

General Lukas commands the Briktopian Armored Division and the Vindicator SHDT specifically.

Colonel Raszack is the commander of the infantry and thus the main bulk of the Briktopian Armed Forces.

Military

The Briktopian Armed Forces (BAF) are currently rethinking their doctrines of land, air and space based combat. New weapon systems are under heavy development with the Immortal Conflict in mind.

The bulk of the BAF consists of troopers in auxetic armor bearing standard pulse rifles. The infantry also uses support vehicles like the Jaguar Armored Car or the Ozelot 4WD truck. There are also specialists with extra training and equipment, e.g. the close combat troopers.

The Ghost Brigades are a new organization in the BAF currently being developed by Apollyon. Not much is known so far about these mysterious warriors.

The backbone of the Armored Division consists of the Avenger main battle tanks. There are a multitude of other tanks and armored vehicles in use as well, like the Delta siege tank, the Schreck light assault tank or the Prowler.

Superweapons:
In R. 2,012 the Briktopians started using superweapons in form of the Vindicator SHDT. Construction of an Armoured Core has begun in R. 2,013 and there are plans to eventually build a SHIP, too.
