Okay, a few things to mention, take these as addressed to yourself if you feel the need. Otherwise, just listen to Relapse being Mr. Snark. (Oh, it's sooo good to not have to try and be that anymore.)First off: Gender and the player base-- The entire player base for this game is almost exclusively male. There are only two or three women I have ever seen play in this game. One of them has yet to play. So, do the math. Actually, my theory is the basic style of gameplay, mainly one giant battle after another, does not suit most women's preferences. Call me sexist, but I'm looking at this from the standpoint of American culture indoctrination. Girls are not given Bionicle very often when the Barbies are just on the other side of the aisle waiting to be thrown into the shopping cart by some parent attempting to brainwash their child into being a "princess" like they were. Because the massive amount of senseless (yes I will use that word here), fighting in this game, perhaps a large percentage of those women who DO enjoy Bionicle from a sci-fi stand point are turned away. Or that fact that so many female roles I've seen are demeaned in some way. This may also be a reason why I play so many female characters... Huh.

I definitely agree with this one, it makes quite a lot of sense to me. Admittedly I'm a guy, but still......And I just realized that of my three current characters (possibly four), one is a female character. Which is interesting, because the "normal" male-female ratio in Bionicle is like 5/1, if even that high.

Second: Planning for characters--- I feel the need to mention here, that I don't exactly agree with the idea of just letting your characters run about without a plan. I think of a plan for my characters as more of a "Destiny" if you will. They will EVENTUALLY get there, if they don't die trying, so I don't worry about the inbetween stuff and focus more on developing their personalities with interaction from others. The last time I seriously planned something out, for Kriigata no less, I ended up spending a good hour crying when Nuju stated, quite plainly I assure you; "No." Creating the fixation of needing a character to be something perfect only leads to the eventual downfall and misery of realizing that's what writing an epic is for, not playing a game with other people.

I'm... well, this is the way I write most of my characters, to be honest. I plan some character development points for later down the road, then sit back and let the character take themselves where they will. ...That sounds schitzo, doesn't it? However, this doesn't mean that some characters can't have more long-term planning than this, as long as it's adaptable. I'm not very experienced with this RP, but I've long since learned that making long-term plans in almost any RP will almost inevitably result in them being crushed. Admittedly, I've never had a character (permanently) die, but...

Third: Well Karz, I forgot what i was gonna address next. *shrug*EDIT:THANK YOU TYLER. I was about to talk about, gasp, TillianxSkyra. I totally say "yes" to this, and actually even my concept for Bionicle anatomy... Well, let's just say they're fully compatible.

Well, uh.I just assumed that they were mostly androids with organic muscles and the like, with some being more organic than others to account for all these "sweating" references.

There's no reason not to put lasers in the palms of planet-sized robots. In fact, if I had my own planet-sized robot, palm lasers would be one of my first upgrades. It's good for self-defense if you're attacked by something big.

Guys, more evidence on the "Heuani is Mata" theory. He poked out a manas eye. Either that was a sparring match and makuta wanted to weaken his defense, or Heuani was a toa mata and kicked some @#$%.Either way, Echelon is having a bad day.

If Ira was there, he would probably jump after Echelon into the pit.

EDIT: And then die. Better not forget the dying part.

Yes, because entering the temple of Big Bad with Bigger Bad inside in order to save the guy Big Bad wants dead through closed floors, which I am assuming has attempted to be broken into, with Manas inside is a really good idea.Also, you don't just "rally" the troops for a number of reasons. Especially it not making sense. Also, I doubt Echelon is going to be down there long if he survives.

Oh, so I wasn't the only one who thought of this? Interesting. Well, presuming I'm allowed to share, here's what I actually thought of the current Makuta Servants:Heuani is either original entirely or Tahu, in all likelihood. Tahu was essentially the signature (not to mention leader of the) Toa Mata, so if Heuani is indeed a light-drained Toa Mata, then it would almost have to be Tahu.Vidar... well, I've been thinking that Vidar could potentially be Lewa, due to the signature Levitation/Air combo. But that's not much evidence to go on, so I'm assuming that he was original and moving on.Can't remember the third Makuta Follower...

You all should take a deep breath. Relax. :lol: Nuju's not all business all the time and neither am I. Anyway, I saw some more speculation on the Staff characters -- I pretty much agree with most of the Heuani ones, but you never know. I'm the process of explaining Vidar's past now, during this Epic Rundown.Any speculations on Ronkshou?
