He's in the jungle to the north-east of it, in the custody of Aparangi (Vezok's Friend) and DJ (Kughii), with Hiemalis (me) standing by. You can search for the keywords of "Peer" and "Aparangi" in Le-Wahi and you'll be caught up.

That's because he is, for all intents and purposes, dead to his fellows and his actual death has been delayed due to slow role playing.

Is this the first time somebody RP'D as an alien?And it's not magic; what I think it is is either Midi-Chlorians or an additional organ in their body that grants them control over subatomic particles that allow them to split atoms apart and reform them into their element, creating the illusion of something from nothing.

I prefer to call it "extremely powerful psionics". There's a difference, as magic comes from spirits whereas psionics comes from sheer force of will.

Attempting to explain the elements with such technobabble fails. This is a tribal setting with magic and mysticism.The Great Beings did it.

I would assume that the reason the business with Otus is confusing is because, as far as I know, the character wasn't staff-approved. ;)- Vorex

Magic is simply science we don't yet understand. A simple cigarette lighter would, a thousand years ago, be considered "magic." In the same way, elemental powers might as well be considered magical because there's no way we can understand or explain how they work.

No no no. Science is the experimentation of explanations and predictions about how everything works in order to obtain knowledge. The elements can be science, such as ...Helryx: If I want to drink water, I get water? Cool, I'mma repeating this over and over again.Of course, we can't come up with a reason how that happens.

That, coupled with the fact that in the game's setting there is no way to explain elemental energies and such, means that everything in the game is magic. Simple.

Well if more people started rping as aliens... I proposed an alien species, two actually, to Nuju but he denied them, saying something about how it would add to the game or something.But yeah, this extraterrestrial character could get interesting.On another note, after the Kumu Islets go boom, what do we do?On yet another note, why is technological process so slow on this island? *consults history textbook to see what sparked the industrial revolution*

Listen to Wotz. He is making sense. It doesn't really matter all too much. To an extent it is good to explain why things happen, but some things are better left unexplained.

Technological progress is slow? You need to get an idea of time-scales :PAnd it was the Agricultural Revolution that sparked the Industrial one, btw ;)

No.Lots of time /->/ technological advancement. That argument doesn't consider that for technological process to happen, other factors quite typically need to align (like a degree of peace while that time passes). And this is MN, so factors are a veritable ton different from Earth in the first place. Who knows what it'd take for tech to advance?
