Haha sure this comes around as I'm rounding seventeen! Certainly lighting a fire under my shebs to get my kit done so I can be a Mythosaur ;) Great idea, and I can't wait to see this grow!

Sounds like a great idea! Just one question, though.  I know kids can apply to the corps with a store-bought costume, but if they applied with one they made, would they have the same CRLs as OMs?

No.  That only applies to children of current Official Members who are shooting for "Verd'ika Membership" in Mercs.

So I can buy this: http://www.officialstarwarscostumes.com/boba-fett-costumes/adult-boba-fett-costumes/99888574 and call myself Boba Verd'ika?  :laugh:
But seriously, I can do that?

So I could get, say, one of these http://www.officialstarwarscostumes.com/boba-fett-costumes/boba-fett-masks/993148 or use EVA foam?

Yes, you can buy a store-bought costume and enter the Verd'ika Corps.  It's a kid's club, it's not Mercs, therefore is needs to cater to what's more likely for a non-18yr old.

Same, although I may use a cheaper helmet, gauntlets, etc. until I can find a good quality one (and have enough money for it).

One comment on this. For the kids who do want to have armor that fits the official crls, the lack of a forum will make this hard. Now I understand that there are liability issues to allowing children to use forums, but perhaps you can have a different forum for each age group? For the youngest two groups have it such that parents have to post. But for the oldest since they're over 13 they should be able to post without liability issues?

I just don't really see the point if there is no way for the kids to discuss their costumes and have their quality improve.

This isn't a bad idea in my mind. The 13+ open forum would just have to be limited to armor threads and maybe challenge reports.
Just a soon-to-be Mythosaur adding my 2 cents to the conversation.

The idea of having a forum for under 13s would be a problem, not only socially, I can already see the people who dislike us commenting that the Mercs have opened a forum for kids to be groomed all over their facebooks and back room emails, but we'd have to screen the members with highly expensive methods to attempt to ensure the virtual safety of the kids, as well as the very real cost of setting up a server and maintaining it. Remember, even though the Mercs is funding it, we as a group will have little participation in it.

Or we could not have a forum.
