Wow, this is really cool! What a shame that we never saw it in action. At least we do have it here. By the way, was Tera the representative for rock or sand? Just curious as that part was vague.
(Reposted because I didn't tag Greg. Whoops.)
Yeah, as Styrofoam said, Earth. However, at the time this was written, that was a place holder for the plagued tribe, which ended up being the Iron Tribe. Though I don't know if this was also supposed to be the Sand Tribe aswell.
you could write it as fan-fic, can't you? like the half life episode 3 story?
To be clear, "earth" was originally going to be the name of the plague tribe. Then Lego/Greg decided to go with iron instead. However, later on Greg decided to also make a Earth tribe, completely separate from the one mentioned here. So technically Tera would have been a member of the Iron Tribe.
Unfortunately, Greg has explicitly stated that he will not do that in a number of different instances.
Unfortunately, no. As long as I am an employee of LEGO, anything I write re: LEGO themes or characters would be considered official. So I can't write fan fiction. Otherwise, I would.
In that case, I'd assume that Tera is also a placeholder name, since it's literally one letter off from meaning earth itself.
Any new names would be placeholder, since this never got reviewed or approved. Any name would have had to go through Legal and frankly I doubt Tera would have gotten approved - somebody has to own the rights to that name already.
Fair enough.So far, I've only seen character results use the Double R form, but there is one game that launched in 2012 and actually used the word verbatim as a title. Factoring in the initial development period, the two uses of the name likely would've been fairly close to each other.
