It would be nice if a third party Bionicle tabletop RPG were made. I think FATE would work best for a system. For those unfamiliar with the FATE system; It's a generic freeform system framework which can be built upon to create any number of genre-specific systems. What makes it differ from other systems is that all players play a part in creating the game world, and can influence the story out of character. Reading the core rules will help clarify the following ideas (FATE core rules: http://www.faterpg.com). Here are some system ideas: At the beginning of a campaign, probably during the whole first session, each player (including the referee, or Game Master) creates the following for the game world: 1. A world: A planet, giant robot or other celestial object. There will typically be one, with every player designing a portion of it. 2. An island. 3. A faction: A gang, corporation or other organization. 4. An event: A current event which could bring about change. Once it is fulfilled, it changes the world (or island, if it happens on a small scale) on which it occurs. All characters have a race and role which grant them benefits. For example: Toa gain elemental manipulation as their top skill, Matoran get extra knowledge or profession skills, Vortixx gain extra profession related stunts, Skakdi gain vision powers and cooperative elemental manipulation as a skill, etc. Role benefits could include: Stalwart, which can take damage for others; Mastermind, which has a few NPCs or a faction which he plays in addition to his character; Artisan, who gains two extra profession-based stunts; Sage, which has extra knowledge skills, etc. Other character creation options are the same as any FATE system's. Characters gain two stunts, have a 10-skill pyramid, and have three stress tracks: A health track, a reputation track and a race-specific track, usually tied to their special abilities: For example: Toa (and Skakdi) get an elemental energy track they must deplete to use their powers, Vortixx get a raw materials track they must deplete to create items related to their profession, Matoran instead get a bonus to reputation as they are usually more involved in a society.Non-player characters are divided into three: Full-fledged NPCs, who function the same as a normal character; extras, who are a bit simplified for shorter use and minions, who have a 3-skill list and are very simplified to be used and discarded.
We all love Bionicle, but even die hard dorks (like myself) have to admit that there are a few moments in Bionicle which are, for lack of a better word, not well thought out.Here are my top ten of those moments (these are opinion based, the intention of this topic is to make your own version of this list). [*]The Final Battle between Makuta and Mata Nui in 2010[*]The Cartoon noises in The Legend Reborn[*]The Dialogue in the second Half of 2008[*]The HUGE Star Wars reference in Web of Shadows[*]The character design of The Legend Reborn[*]Metus transformed into a Snake in The Legend Reborn[*]Kiina and Gresh in The Legend Reborn[*]The Animation in the Miramax movies[*]“That is the way of the Bionicle” ending[*]Bohrok Kal, AKA Super Bohrok, in the first half of 2003I will add in the reasons why later on.What do you think are the Top Ten Dumbest Bionicle Moments for you?
