Well then.

 

Wow, there are half as many toa of Fire as there are matoran. Also, I guess its time to make a turaga.

On the matter of the Fowadi and Co, can we wait until the massive battle is over? I just feel like showing up now would confuse everything and make it take longer.

I disagree with the Turaga idea, 'cause everyone's going to make one(well not everyone, but you get the idea) and soon there will be too many Turaga. I mean, Turaga are pretty rare, rarer than Toa, but there are like 600+ Toa anyway. Ok, call me dumb, whatever, just listing my opinion.

Turaga are supposed to be really awesome Toa...so what if there was an Evil Turaga? Then, he'd have had a Destiny of evil. ???

Speaking of which...it's been awhile since an Anthyn post has been made. I'll make the assumption that EW's busy. That's fine and all, I'll just sit here behind this table that I dove behind for cover from a potential explosion that may come as a result of the barrage of zamor spheres that were just shot at her.

Good point. Since one of the requirements for becoming a Turaga is for a Toa to achieve his/her destiny, it stands to reason that they must have accomplished something extraordinary to achieve that status.

Well, there's also, somehow, the possibility they turned evil after becoming Turaga by some means (but in an RP where Shadow Leeches don't exist it seems highly unlikely such a thing would happen).

Why assume that beings turn evil because they are physically forced to do so? People go bad for all sorts of psychological reasons. If the only way a good being could turn evil were by physical corruption (shadow leeches, infected Kanohi etc), then there would be a darn sight fewer villains in this game.

Ah, touché'. I think I was using the logic of "evil can't achieve destinies" although that is a far stretch.

I think the issue is that you're all misinterpreting the word "destiny".

 

There is no grandiose goal implied in that statement. People like the Maru have tremendous destinies laid out before them, and many things that they will have to do before they reach them. But for the average citizen, their destiny might not be anything so glamorous. It may simply be something like interfering in a fight at just the right moment, so someone else in that fight will live to accomplish their own destiny. Plus, once they had accomplished their destiny, that doesn't necessarily mean they'll become Turaga. The Mata in canon accomplished theirs, and they stayed Toa.

 

Second, accomplishing one's destiny isn't the only way to become a Turaga. Technically, the only physical requirement to becoming a Turaga is to use up all of one's Toa Energy. Obviously that doesn't always do the trick (Like Joske, but Joske is a special case), but that's the technical requirement.

 

Between both of those things, it would be quite easy to assume a reasonable number of Turaga on the island.

From BS01:

 

"After completing their respective Destiny, a Toa can sacrifice his or her Toa Power for the greater good and become a Turaga."

 

Both completion of Destiny and a loss of Toa Power are required to create a Turaga.

 

I believe that closes the debate.

Mr. Peanuts, about that "Onu-Koronan politics" matter I mentioned earlier.

 

Where would I find the people poised to fill the power vacuum in Onu-Koro, is there a city hall somewhere, or a building that fills a similar purpose?

So what happened to that Marine "Captain Iraira" character of Kughii's? Is that squad still in the battle at Ga-Koro? Or did they just fade into temporary obscurity until the 2013 arc?

That seems a question best answered by Kughii. In a PM.

 

But since you asked here, I will take a moment to explain. Kughii's activity is somewhat limited, as he himself has stated. If they entered the battle, they are still there, but it may be a bit before they have another post.

Wait, has anyone made a Matoran of Magnetism yet?...BRB, making homeless lonely Matoran now.(Also Construct I swear I've got a post ready I've just been really busy lately)

Wait, quick question for the general populace: should the first Fa-Matoran be a lonely, homeless wanderer or a former vagabond who is now on the up-and-up? I've narrowed it down to those two options and come up with good personalities for both, but I can't seem to choose between the two.

I'd vote the second, only because you're more likely to look for involvement with that character. But either would be cool.

 

Oh yeah, also, I'm back.

I like the semi-pun of the first option (Matoran of Magnetism, lonely, would rather not be lonely so they might want to *puts on sunglasses* ATTRACT attention! YYEEAA-*shot*), but I can see more room for story with the former vagabond thing. I guess it depends on how seriously you want to take it.Of course, I'm leaning more towards the latter of the two solely because this will likely be the first Fa-Matoran in the RPG, so might as well make it a good impression.

You should certainly factor it in, but feel free to keep fighting. The Ga-Koro docks are far enough away from the beach (where the Rahkshi are in Ga) for you to maybe risk still slinging elements around.

A hundered Rahkshi at each koro, that makes 600 total. There's more toa than that in the game, so plus Skakdi, Vortixx and Matoran, we could take these armies if we all worked together. There would be losses, yes, but theoretically, these Rahkshi armies don't have to be unstoppable. :sly:

 

Too bad so many of those characters are inactive. And the characters likely won't work together, even when confronted with such a strong, common enemy. And even then so many would be killed by Rahkshi. And so much damage would be caused in the batles that there wouldn't be anything left of the villages to live in afterwards.

 

Yeah, forget what I said before. Maybe we can't take them. :giveup:
