Except that isn't falling.
And, the Airship?
It's a good idea. Just that it's hard to compete with it, without being 'unoriginal'.

ROFL. An airship?
And KNI says I come up with smite-able ideas.

We have a massive, flying ship filled with Foreign Tech.
How can we fight it in a way that involved Naval Warfare, not Toa Power Pewpewpew? (Which would be cool, if not for the fact that Tuck controls them)
We need....Either tech on the ground, tech on the sea, or tech in the sky, to match the Jhianil.
And then this goes from BZPRPG 2012 to Techno-Toa and some other cool people 2012.

Are we allowed to control random Rahi attacks?
On a really small scale?
I think so.
Yeah, I was just thinking of having a couple Brakas jump in or something of the sort.

If you interact with one of my characters and weren't already doing so, please PM me to let me know!

While I agree with Nuju that the over-scientificness of certain people's ideas <cough JL cough> is pointless, I disagree on one point. It's not because there are too many scientific minds playing the game, it's because there are too many people who THINK they know a lot about science, when in fact, they're getting it wrong ALL OVER THE PLACE.
I think there's another side to this, though. Even if someone knows their science, I don't really want to see it in the game if it's beyond high school science. Heck, even some high school science is pushing it. If you have to take a class to understand the physics of the game, then I think we've gone too far. I play this game because I enjoy writing, not because I enjoy flaunting my knowledge of advanced physics.
Basically, my point is that I don't really care if the science is right or wrong; if your average Joe can't make heads or tails of it, I think we should leave it be. A large part of the fun in playing this game is in the ability to imagine, not in the adherence to real-world rules. While science can make the game more interesting, it has the potential to kill any enjoyment when overused.
An example is EW's sinking of the Kumu Islets. Everyone understands that organic material decomposes over time, releasing methane, a flammable gas. The lighting of said gas would realistically create a situation that we just saw unfold in Kumu. It's simple, straightforward, and everyone can see that it's not godmodding. Yay for science.
The use of positrons, on the other hand, is less appropriate, because not everyone here even knows what positrons are, let alone how they behave. That kind of advanced science, whether used correctly or incorrectly, isn't a good fit for this game.
Oh, and good luck, Ghosty!

Welcome to Mata Nui.
We have magic and a tribal civilisation.
Science is in the background~

I'm wondering if he'll punch us through the walls of reality.

A gravity Implosion would be awesome as well.
But I dun want Gravity to collapse into himself.
He's a cool guy! Why so mean to him?!
Of course, how Tuck decides to kill us depends on what he feels like doing at the moment.

Ah, kids these days.
Only remember the meteor-thing.
Never the Superweapon of Mass Destruction.

It wasn't the Peers and Bad Company who blew up Kumu.
It was the heat Joske emanated when he first made his transformation into a Toa ... on the other side of the island ... months ago.
Anyway, disregarding our forced Chuck Norris jokes, anyone got an idea how to rebuild the ILF? We'll need them soon.
Like, really soon.

You know, seeing that EW is taking over the island and stuff.

There are too many scientific minds playing this game. It makes my suspended disbelief ache ever so much.
i only use physics from sid the science kid in my rping
it hasn't failed me yet

Don't argue with it. Just enjoy the Tuck smite.
It's been too long. <3
Posted Dec 05 2012 - 07:08 AM
I dunno, dude. Sid the Science Kid hasn't talked about airships yet, so I haven't really been keeping up with the argument.
From what I can discern? Airships are not troo mata nui status

We're being smited bro.
Relax, and let the death wash over you.

If Tuck has a problem with it, it's gone.

I haven't developed any possessive feelings over Ziyas yet, so she is expendable.
Posted Dec 05 2012 - 07:55 AM
Huh. Can't really say I'm surprised, though I'm a bit disappointed.
Largely because I actually took the time to make a character, and hash the details of his tech out with Nuju. Oh well. The ship was a long shot anyway, and I knew it from the beginning. Just kind of disappointed that it got approved, started to move out, and got smited.
I mean, they hadn't even done much yet. Raknar did more damage with a Bomber!Grochi.
