Display of power. Kind of to show the island that they're there.

There are ways of displaying power without going to the top of the the island's most wanted list.

"Captain, just in!""Flying metal thing added to top wanted list!"Most people don't even know that airships exist. This whole thing will seem rather nonsensical.

Actually, most people don't even know airships exist period. The only people who will have seen anything like it, even maybe, are Skakdi and Vortixx. Because they come from advanced lands themselves.

... So what are the specs of the ship?

I'm going to get all the specs and the like from KNI and make a wiki page shortly. When I do, I'll post a link here, so we can all check out the specs.However, I know from my positions that it it has a super-advanced sensor suite, at least two primary cannons, and a lot of precision.

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.

There are port and starboard cannons, along with back cannons.

 

Err, Thermal Imaging Camera. Thats my second piece of tech.

 

 

Not sure if there's an armory for handheld weapons...

But why would we need it?

Kind of like 2006 Voya's guns. Except bigger. And doesn't fire Antidermis.

 

Also, just a crazy idea: What if the Jhianil has a Bow Positron Beam Cannon?

I'm assuming direct-fire then. Does it have a large damage radius, or is it a more accurate weapon?EDIT: oh, metal spheres. Ignore the question above.

Except fired from the sky.

 

 

And then we have custom tech. Lazer gunzzzz~

 

But if it were up to me, I still would have made a Positron Cannon on the ship.

Pssh, silly underachievers.  Who needs foreign tech when you can give both tech slots to the ship, and make an amazing sensor suite?  :P

I leave for one day, and suddenly Po-Koro is being attacked by some kind of flying metal demon [Airship]. Explosions loud enough to drown out the voice of an average Ga-Matoran are now blaring into the ears of a De-Matoran who, even with his what we would describe as "headphones", still has hearing about two times higher than the average matoran. This stuff just got real. >=)

Behind this sucky post count, a writer and hardcore RPer lies in wait of a reason to post...

For those who will likely ask when reading some of my non-RP posts: for me, "*shot*' = "I know that what I said was something stupid and I am acknowledging this before people think I'm serious."

Oh yeah, and my current BZPRPG character bio can be found here.

"Why...me? Oh yeah, that's right. I'm weak. I'm of a minority, a minority of people with a common trait: we hear too much. And what we're supposed to hear hurts to hear. When I'm alone in a silent room, I can hear a pebble dropping from a mile away. I can hear a motor boat being started up several yards off the coast. A whisper from outside, I can hear as if they were talking right at me. An explosion in another koro, I hear as if it's just outside. Sounds useful, right?"
"Wrong."
"It's a curse, if you ask me. The same pen dropping inside this aforementioned silent room would ring in my ears. If I stood by the same motor, I'd get a headache. The same whisper would ring in my ear like two metal beams being slammed together in front of my face. The same explosion would render me deaf for years...thank the Spirit I thought of getting me something to dampen the noise, or I'd end up like the rest of my kind..."

When in doubt, earth physics.

Normally, I would agree.  But this is first and foremost a creative story, not a scientific thesis.  The Artistic License: Physics trope exists for a reason - and the RP's concept itself stretches physics to a degree.  Let it pass, I'd say.

And we've been through antimatter before. Let's not bring it up again.

...Antimatter?  I get the feeling that Nuju wouldn't approve that.  :P

I remember attempting to get Tuck to approve antimatter torpedoes for my airship back in Derrum.

 

Fun times.

 

Anyway, we have a giant airship flying over Po.

 

And their goal is to destroy the headquarters.

 

Is anyone else seeing a pattern here?

There have been two incidents in which naval vessels have attacked Po-Koro.

 

Both times, they assaulted the Guard HQ.

 

I consider airships naval vessels by the way~

 

Well then, it'll be difficult rebuilding it ...AGAIN.

Where's Naona?

 

Also, a Positron Beam Cannon CAN work. We've seen it in Gundam Seed, which means it can. Quite simply, have it operate in a Vacuum.

 

So have the cannon always inside a vacuum, and then create a beam vacuum, slightly thicker than the beam of Positrons, and then the positron beam itself.

 

Then the moment the Vacuum is no longer there, BOOM! Everybody inside the beam dies. Everybody close to the beam gets Gamma radiation. And the flying airship accelerates from Positronic Interference.

Complicated? No. Impossible? No.

 

1. Make Vacuum

2. Make Positrons inside Vacuum

3. Remove Vacuum with Positrons not close enough to ship to do damage

4. Boom

 

Also, prediction of BZPRPG 2013:

 

Wanderers Company become Toa from the Mata's Essence Stones. They need to head to the Failsafe location in Le-Wahi for the crystals.

 

Heuani's true identity will be revealed.

 

2012 ends with the Wanderer's Company's transformation and a final showdown.

 

Rahkshi fights.
