Busou Shinki with Armored Core weapons

Raven Republic members held the 3rd AC kit bash event last October 10 in forum member Trace‘s residence. Kit Bash 3 is a combination AC model assembly, painting, model mash-up, and photo-op, members try to assemble model kits, paint them, and see which one fits with another, though the actual AC kit bash hasn’t occurred yet (a true mix-match of parts resulting in an original creation hasn’t materialized as of the moment). Of course, it wouldn’t be complete w/o Japanese curry, the official food during an AC kit bash meet.

Anyway, pics of the model creations after the jump. Continue reading »

Happy Sausages

Raven Republic’s triple attraction event finally pushed through, and boy was it awesome!

When Maitreya and I arrived at Leperman’s house at around noon, most of the members were already there, with some playing Blazblue and others already playing LR. In the shadows, a few enterprising individuals had already begun harvesting prawns!

Outside, stacks and stacks of burgers, buns, and condiments were spread all over just waiting to be consumed. Super Chef Hempire brought some awesome sauces and toppings and he even managed the grill for us for pretty much the whole day. What’ll we do without you, Hemp? :(

*Special thanks to Trace-02 for the awesome Sophie image :3 *

Three events rolled into 1! On August 1, 2009 we will be celebrating RR’s 3rd foundation year, our 2nd Build Your Own Burger event, and out 5th Armored Core tournament with a highly experimental tiered randomized 2-on-2 system for AC:LR which will happen in the middle of the day. For more details, please click HERE.

This is going to be held in Sforza‘s place in Makati if he’s still around by August 1. If not, its going to be in Lord Leperman‘s place, which is 3 minutes away.

Hope to see you guys there.

UPDATE – Great success!

PACT 5 Sophie

We’ve decided to hold what will most likely be our last tournament using Armored Core: Last Raven to celebrate Raven Republic’s 3rd anniversary. BYOB part 2 will probably happen on the same day as well.

Currently, we’re still deciding on the format to use for the tournament. Help us decide by voting in the PACT 5 Format thread.

The tentative date for the event is on August 1, 2009. For other details and updates, just check up on the appropriate threads in the forums.

UPDATE: Polling has determined that PACT 5 will take a slightly different turn from our previous tournaments. We’re going to use a two-on-two format! Other rules are still being discussed though.

BYOB 06

Last March 21, 2009, RR had experienced probably its most awesome and grandiose event ever, the Build Your Own Burger event. The idea goes like this: 3 grills, 48 patties and buns, 8 sausages and buns, and an army of hungry guys bringing varieties of toppings ranging from veggies, spices, condiments, meats, and earnestly waiting to devour food.

Vigan 05

OK, I believe this is the latest update I’ve ever done. Sorry folks.

Last January 9 to 11, a number of the ravens went up north to this idyllic little slice of history called Vigan. For those of you who don’t know about this place, it’s basically famous for it’s colonial Spanish era-style houses and cobblestone streets. It’s also been named as a World Heritage Site. You can read more about it on Wikipedia.

I didn’t get to go to this one, which was a major bummer since the guys had a ton of fun. So you can join me in my misery as we read through an excerpt of Fox’s recounting of day two: Continue reading »

Mirage C05-Selena

Last December 27, some members got together and proceeded to Doom Trigger‘s abode for something different. Yes, there was still going to be AC, Tekken and good food, the staples of an RR meet, but this time, kit-building was to included into the mix.

Now I don’t know if this is just laziness on my part, or the fact that I’m updating this at 12:30 in the morning, but I’ll say this: I didn’t get to go to this one, sadly, so you’ll have to go by this thread and ask around to find out what happened. In any case, picture time after the jump!
