Alternately, have him live on a tiny island near the Mainland, and have him think it was the real deal. Lets him come from the Mainland, and keeps the actual Mainland a complete mystery, like Drahcir wants.

To extrapolate on Drahcir's point-

When you're dividing the stats, the max that you can currently put into any one stat is 12.

So for instance, dividing it into 13/4 or any more unevenly would not be legitimate.

but other than that, it's fair game to split it however you want.

I hope you don't mind if we minorly intervene there Tara- we can't let that be THE Mask of Fire, as we wanted to design this as a separate thing from the OG Bionicle Universe. You can keep the Mask, but I'm afraid it'll have to be powerless- plus we'll have to rewrite the lore around it if you don't mind.

It's up to you- I mean, broken bones tend to take longer to heal, but they are Bionicles, and their biology isn't exactly gonna be the same as humans.

We would really prefer that the mask remain powerless, both to keep a sense of balance and to set a precedent for the future.

Imagine, for a moment, that we let you spontaneously invent an item or backstory point that gave you ridiculously overpowered abilities. Two things happen: 1. People get mad that they didnít do it first, and 2. Other people start doing it too. And before you know it, you have an army of Mary Sues rampaging through absolutely any challenge your hapless admins try to create because ďermegherd i haz powerzzzzĒ (a sentence which, fortunately, no one has yet said in this rpg).

Iím not trying to be overly harsh or anything; these rules go for everyone, to try and prevent the arms race of OPness that happened in the previous Island of Botana RPG (which Iíll admit, I played a role in that race, and in stopping it). In fact, this entire system of HP and ATK was made to prevent these arms races: you root your combat in sensibly scaled numbers, and prevent excessively overpowered characters from quickly derailing the plot. It also keeps your minibosses from taking forever to kill (a single enemy in the last RPG once took over a week to kill, if I remember correctly).

That said, if every atom in your body is compelling you to make this mask magic, go ahead but stay small. Maybe it augments Pepekeís ability with his Charkam? Perhaps it has enchanted crystal lenses, functioning like a microscope? Or maybe it contains the dearly departed soul of a renowned chef, dictating the secret for the perfect smoked salmon in a language none can understand?

Again, weíre not trying to pick on you or anyone else; weíre just trying to prevent the demise of yet another rpg so early in its run.

As the doctor, (:P) I'd say Kae is fine. She only got some bandages and an aspirin, nothing was internally broken.

Tuhinga is a kid, so he recovers faster than the older characters. also rib injuries let you get back into action a little sooner than say, a femur injury. I'd say have him keep a bandage on, but otherwise be fine long as he doesn't go wild.

But it's up to you. You could even have Rongo tell them how much better you want them to be in a check-up type conversation, I'd be fine with that.

I second what Aeon said, though by all means, the mask could have a ceremonial, mystical side to it that aids Pepeke in his study of magic- that wouldn't be too world breaking I don't think.

Iím afraid our opinion of Saxton (Psithur) was rather wrong. Iíve had some private conversation with him, and heís a good guy. He likes to make jokes, some of which weíve taken the wrong way. Granted, he was rather rude to Duckie. But heís not the bad guy some of us thought he was.
I dunno. some of his mocs were kinda insulting. I guess I should try to no him better. Raymond seriously bothered me im glad he deleted it.
Okay, rant over. Just trying to clear his name. :P

He is fairly cold, but your guy uses magic which he really hates. It would be quite interesting if Chet came back because his character uses loads of magic, but her and Pontel were/are great friends so thatd be fun.

Iíll split your question into two parts:

1. Can it be a monster?
Sure!

2. Can it be a rahkshi?
Iím going to answer this once: the world of Botana and the Mainland no longer exists in Bionicle canon. Sure, weíve adopted Agori as the sapient inhabitants of Botana and Rahi as a generic term for animals, other things like Rahkshi (preferably) do not exist in the same way as they did in Bionicle.

Sure, you can have a Rahkshi. But it shouldnít just be a copy-pasted Rahkshi straight from G1. Be creative; take the source conceptóeel in a metal suitóand reinvent itóperhaps a monstrous lizard twisted into bipedal state by the Tar?

We also have a channel for suggestions like this called Bestiary. Please keep suggestions like these to those channels.

Just a quick note: I know that you're all excited for the mainland and stuff, but please do remember that a great deal of what the mainland is like has already been discussed and created by the admins. It's fine if you have ideas for monsters, NPCs, and the like, but unlike in the Island RPG you will have to run these by the admins before inserting them. Not that anyone has tried to insert something without approval yet, but just keep this in mind.

You should make a thread (only for the admins to comment in) that lists all NPCs and Creatures, and where they are located.


Example:

CREATURE: Hollow - Mainland

And then if you wanted to you could link the comment/creation about the creature.

What about animals? Not ones that would activate combat mode, just regular, non-sapient inhabitants of the Mainland? Ones we could later add to the Bestiary(or a new Mainland Bestiary).

Animals are fine Torp, works the same way as it has on Botana- make up as many as you like.

We're more talking about the inhabitants and the social structure of the Mainland- given that the admins already have very specific plans for those things.

As we become more acquainted with it, we'll be more open for players to create their own inhabitants and groups and stuff- but for now it's better to leave it to us admins ;)

Also, it looks like you're trying your absolute hardest to make him this perfect, flawless, always morally correct character which is both boring to read and a bit annoying at times.

um... I honestly was not thinking about making him perfect... sorry if it seemed that way! and the mask just slightly improves his magic. in the last comment in the actual rpg, he used too much! he exerted himself. also, the only reason he started yelling and all that was because he was already stressed out from pontel's attitude. (the character, not the person)
Im truly sorry if it came across another way... I tried to base pepeke off of myself, the way he is usually calm and positive, but if he gets stressed out...
all i'm gonna say is oof.
plus he is unconscious, a perfect agori would still be awake after that much magic.
again, I'm sorry if I caused you and the admins any trouble... If there is some way to make it up to you guys (besides leaving the group and giving you my personal info, etc etc) then let me know.

Depending on how "high tech" these guys are, maybe thats where Rakau got his legs from? (Either bought or stole them)

Just gonna weigh in with my 3 years of premed experience:

Since the larynx is surrounded principally by cartilage, itís commoressible, meaning that being choked should at worst cause some deformation, but not enough to cause severe damage or permanent voice loss, though it can damage the voice.

However, if Bokeh had instead gone for Pontel's carotid arteries, the latter would have lost consciousness within 30 seconds, with brain damage occurring after a minute of sustained blockage, and death after 4-7 minutes (depending on if other arteries/veins are also blocked in the grip. Of course, his larynx would be unaffected (the carotid are on the sides of the larynx under muscle, forcing Bokeh to use his thumbs to depress them over the larynx), and his voice would be unaffectedóof course, heíd be dead, so not much use for a voice then.


Trust me, the premed club gave me a shirt saying that Iím almost a doctor :P

However, if Bokeh had instead gone for Pontel's carotid arteries, the latter would have lost consciousness within 30 seconds, with brain damage occurring after a minute of sustained blockage, and death after 4-7 minutes (depending on if other arteries/veins are also blocked in the grip. Of course, his larynx would be unaffected (the carotid are on the sides of the larynx under muscle, forcing Bokeh to use his thumbs to depress them over the larynx), and his voice would be unaffectedóof course, heíd be dead, so not much use for a voice then.


Trust me, the premed club gave me a shirt saying that Iím almost a doctor :P

*blink blink*

Now can I have it in English?

Why didn't you make your character a doctor? That way you can give a wall of information every time someone comes with an injury.

Although, that may leave alot of people going "Uhhhhh" for awhile while contemplating what has just been said.

honestly, anger issues are awesome in rpg characters because you can make them rage about anything. that reminds me... I was playing dungeons and dragons with my friends. I was an elf, and my friend was a gnome. He was really scared of a dragon, so I slapped him. He got really mad and I blamed it on some bad guys. He attacked them... I think he killed 3 or 4 before he calmed down.

Ach, tell me about it.

Yeah, autocorrect tends not to help with that kinda stuff, given it lacks the nuance of sentence structure. A lot of it comes with experience really- reading a lot of books tends to improve your vocabulary and spelling overall.

When I'm not sure on a spelling, I tend to either go to a dictionary or try to type the word in google, and wait for the correct spelling to come up.

The same as the doc shows. Where your magic comes from doesn't matter, for game balance all magicians are ranked the same. The abilities listed are merely examples, you're character may be able to do one, two, all, or even none of them, but they are by no means the only things they can do. Feel free to come up with your own powers, using the examples as a guideline for how strong they should be, and if you're unsure about whether you can do something or not feel free to talk to me about it.

Well fudge, that was really good. I had presumed he was being snarky. Oh well, looks like Pikau will have quit a few other things on his mind for a while anyways.

Lvl 5
Hp:3 -6
Attack: 4
Charge:1
Mag:0

ooc: I get 16 or 14 points to work with right?


The number of skill points you have for HP, STR, and MAG is equal to 8+3(n-1), where n is your current level. At level 5, this becomes 20 skill points. Basically, the only rules are that HP+STR+MAG=8+3(n-1), and HP must be 5 at a minimum for n >= 5. Once youíve assigned your points as you like them, please post them in Character Stats.

For further questions, please consult the updated rules thread or ask in that channel.

Pontel Gunn
HP: 8
STG: 11
CHARGE: 2


Pontel clicked the last piece into place, pulling it around to face the giant, cranking the gun he lined it up.. and let it loose. The steel caneen ball went flying, hitting the Waiting One square in the chest with a sickening crunching and suck!ng noise. It went clear through, coming out the other side and then through the wall behind The Waiting One. The gun thankfully didn't self destruct this time. The Waiting One fell forward, smashing onto the ground, tar oozing out of his shredded body.

The Waiting One.
HP: 0 (-11)

Umm, this attack showed up twice? Is the Waiting One finished or not?

When you've been obsessed with animals your whole life and Blue was one of your favorite characters, it's a bit different. :P Show isn't worse because of it in hindsight though, so the reveal for me was harder than the fact itself.

Probably shouldn't be so invested in a blue dog from a children's show anyways. :P

Yep- it's a special move he can use to boost his attack. In terms of lore, the sword is too heavy to use constantly, but if he saves his strength, he can use it briefly to attack a foe.

Yes, you can; depends on how you want to approach it; either you can spend 2 CHG to deliver a super strong attack, or you can spend 1 CHG each and deliver two regular strong attacks- at that point it just comes down to strategy.

The biggest thing though, was the fact you controlled his character. In this RPG, itís all about interacting with other people. When someone dictates an entire conversation between two characters, it eliminates that.
