I'm really liking this revised version. My only criticism just from skimming over it is that there really isn't much incentive to play as lower level jaegers or kaiju. Weak, stupid, not very powerful. I don't think many players will want to use them.

Yeah, it's the same reason nobody plays Matoran.

I've picked out a few bits and pieces I have concerns with, and have put my comments here in blue. 

 

3.0: Expeditions

 
One of the primary goals at the moment is to find a way out of the MU. Most expeditions are currently heading to Metru Nui to find a way out due to it having the light holes in the dome which the island’s rulers hypothesise to be easier to break through than the regular MU skin. PCs will be leading expeditions- you don’t need GM approval to go- but Dane, Ultimo and I will be posting to guide these quests along.
 
I don't see the point of including the entirety of Metru Nui if its sole purpose is just for these quests. It seems unnecessary to include such a massive location when players already have so many other huge locations to play in. 
 
4.0: Locations
 
Xia
 
Stelt
 
Zakaz
 
Metru Nui
 
The Kaiju Hive
 
Your locations are somewhat vague; can players RP anywhere on all of the continents of Xia, Stelt, Zakaz and Metru Nui? That seems incredibly excessive. 
 
The Vortixx have also been able to create giant Kanohi for the Jaegers, granting them some specialised powers. 
 
While I get that an RPg doesn't have to follow all of the normal rules, we've never seen anything in canon to suggest that Vortixx are capable of forging normal Kanohi, let alone giant ones. Why not use a similar system as in MuP, where normal Kanohi are integrated into the vehicle's system? Since all of the Toa are apparently dead, there'd be plenty of spare Kanhoi to go around.
 
Sonic booms- Kaiju with this adaptation have an oversized left claw which, when clicked, creates a shockwave with enough energy to break the sound barrier, not unlike the pistol shrimp.
 
This one came across as strangely specific to me. So the only Kaiju who are allowed to use this are left-handed ones with big claws? None of the other adaptations seem to require a specific anatomical function like this one does.  
 
Category 1
Melee-style, basic adaptations.
 
Category 1 Kaiju are smaller and have less destructive potential, although they are useful as basic soldiers and fast attackers. Category 1s are less intelligent than Category 2s. Category 1s have adaptations on the scale of electrified skin which deals an electric shock out when touched. 
 
​I mentioned this earlier, but you're not giving any real incentive to play as low-level Kaiju. With weaker species in other games, some players choose to play them for the extra challenge, but I don't feel that this game really offers that.
 
The only thing players will get from RPing a Cat 1 Kaiju is a curbstomping. 
 
Jaeger nickname: Jatikko
MK: V
Kanohi: Faxon (Works exactly like normal)
Weaponry: Twin plasma cannons on the shoulders, capable of taking down a Category 5 Kaiju; Rocket fists; swords stored in the arms, able to cut through a Kaiju’s hide with ease; “The Godkiller”- a giant hammer.
Appearance: Jatikko is loosely built, its general structure being reminiscent of Arkie with long, powerful limbs. The Jaeger is painted white and blue.
 
This confuses me a little. What use is the Faxon against Kaiju? 
 
Since the Kaiju aren't rahi, the Faxon wouldn't be able to replicate their powers.

Xia, Stelt and Zakaz aren't exactly continents; they're islands, so with the exception of Metru Nui, it seems no more excessive to me than being able to play all over Mata Nui. And yes, the entire islands are open for play, although Metru Nui won't be open for players to explore as such; we'll be keeping players within certain areas.

 

 

This confuses me a little. What use is the Faxon against Kaiju? 

 
Since the Kaiju aren't rahi, the Faxon wouldn't be able to replicate their powers. 

It's my game so it can. And are you sure the Kaiju aren't Rahi?

 

 

While I get that an RPg doesn't have to follow all of the normal rules, we've never seen anything in canon to suggest that Vortixx are capable of forging normal Kanohi, let alone giant ones. Why not use a similar system as in MuP, where normal Kanohi are integrated into the vehicle's system? Since all of the Toa are apparently dead, there'd be plenty of spare Kanhoi to go around.

That could work, although the giant Kanohi are there partially for the rule of cool.

 

 

​I mentioned this earlier, but you're not giving any real incentive to play as low-level Kaiju. With weaker species in other games, some players choose to play them for the extra challenge, but I don't feel that this game really offers that.

 
The only thing players will get from RPing a Cat 1 Kaiju is a curbstomping. 

Well, I used to have Cat 1s as being more intelligent, but Tiragath said we should swap around the intelligence scale.  <_<

Perhaps instead of having all categories playable from the start, characters could start as Category 1s and "level up" like the Rahkshi in Corpus?

 

 

 

This one came across as strangely specific to me. So the only Kaiju who are allowed to use this are left-handed ones with big claws? None of the other adaptations seem to require a specific anatomical function like this one does.  

I took inspiration directly from real life for that one, so I see what you mean, although I was trying to avoid everything being breath-based.

 

 

 

I don't see the point of including the entirety of Metru Nui if its sole purpose is just for these quests. 

That isn't its sole purpose, but spoilers so I won't say what else it's important for.

We also never saw anything to show that Vortixx can't make masks or learn how to. They can make and work with kanoka disks, it's not that much of a stretch to think that they could also do the same with masks.

Maybe adding some cityies or specific locations to the Islands would be a good idea. Maybe two cities and a Jaeger launch station for each region?

And yes, the entire islands are open for play, although Metru Nui won't be open for players to explore as such; we'll be keeping players within certain areas.

 

Let's say you got a playerbase similar in size to MuP, for example. There's no way you're going to have enough players to get solid interaction if they're scattered over all of those huge locations. Personally, I'd go with what Chumpu has suggested: put one or two locations on each island, and limit activity to those locations. 

 

You could make smaller locations: beach-side villages and the like, specifically for some of the battles, perhaps, but as it is, your locations are too big and too far spread out to really work. 

 

And are you sure the Kaiju aren't Rahi?

 

Well, considering that you pretty explicitly stated that they're Aqua Magnan beasts, and shut me down over Skype when I suggested you use the First Rahi as your Kaiju, I'm pretty confident that they aren't Rahi. 

 

Well, I used to have Cat 1s as being more intelligent, but Tiragath said we should swap around the intelligence scale.   <_<

Perhaps instead of having all categories playable from the start, characters could start as Category 1s and "level up" like the Rahkshi in Corpus?

 

If Cat 1's had something about them that made them more appealing to players, it might work. Perhaps consider making them more stealth-based: certain adaptations like the chameleon skin are limited only to that category.

I dont remember insinuating that the intelligence scale should be swapped.

 

I heartily agree with Nato/Scorp on the call for more centralized and defined islands. Big, far off places are an absolute pain as a GM.

Y60K has been edited! Changes are:

 

 

Xia:

 
The City:
Xia's islandwide city has somewhat dwindled now, keeping close to the skirts of the Mountain and away from the shores for fear of Kaiju. What is left of the city is bright and hopeful, shining steel buildings towering far up into the sky. The streets are soundly paved, and, all in all, Xia is a good place to live.
 
Xia Shatterdome:
Xia's Shatterdome is, like the city, a tall, elegant affair. Instead of the unpainted iron walls favoured by Stelt, the interior features bare but functional corridors and rooms with clean walls, ceilings and floors; to put it simply, the Xia Shatterdome is a wholesome place. The Jaeger bays are much like the other Shatterdomes, large, cavernous rooms with asphalt floors and Jaegers surrounded by networks of gantries. For reference, think of something like 
this.
 
Stelt:

 

The City:
Where Xia is no longer dirty and polluted, Stelt has become even more so. Many of the arenas which used to characterise the island are gone now, replaced with Jaeger factories. Despite these new jobs, many of the population still turn to crime for a living, preying on unsuspecting beings, murdering and stealing from them. The sky is always gloomy, filled with smoke, but the cordon of Jaegers around the coastline facing into the wider ocean break through the dusk every now and then, their watchful gazes never relenting. As Stelt is attacked the most often by Kaiju, the entire island has been placed under martial law, intended to keep the population working despite the attacks. Half of all attacks are aimed at Stelt.

 

Stelt Shatterdome:

Stelt's Shatterdome is a drab, hardened building, built many bio down into the ground, intended to shield the Jaegers in their bays from Kaiju attacks. The walls are bare metal, rusted around the edges, and the floors have a tendency to be somewhat less than pleasant underfoot. The Jaegers bays are identical to Xia's, except with fewer gantries and more utilitarian Jaegers.
 
Zakaz:

 

The City:
The city on Zakaz, centred around the lake in the middle, is a low, concrete settlement, built quickly in the days after the civil war ended. The streets are unpaved, dusty roads, and what sewers there are are in a constant state of disrepair, blocked and rat-infested. The lake has a number of floating houses built out onto it, designed for easier access to the deposits of metal at its bottom that are used for Jaeger manufacture.

 

Zakaz Shatterdome:

Built on the southern shores, Zakaz' Shatterdome mimics the city, being built out of concrete and with little hygiene inside the structure. It has a notably smaller number of Jaegers than the other two islands, tantamount to the anger issues that plague the Skakdi, meaning that none are able to pilot a Jaeger without another to help. 

 

 

All Kaiju PCs start off at Category 1, with a non-offensive skin-based ability; this can be one of the two shown, or it can be custom. 

When one of the GMs decide that the Kaiju is good enough to move up a category, their player will be notified via PM. When a Kaiju moves up a category, they gain size and another adaptation; the ones available to Category 2s are Elemental Breath abilities and sonic booms. Those available to Category 3s are EMP bursts, Elasticity and Mental Blasts. Permission to create a Category 4 Kaiju will be given out at the GMs' discretion, and Category 3s are not allowed to level up to Category 4; however, the new character does receive three adaptations as well as a unique physiology. (I'm talking extra arms, wings, etc.)

I think I got everything people said, but if not say and I'll change it. :)

Hm.... when I suggested you do something to make playing as Cat 1 Kaiju more appealing, this isn't quite what I meant.... Now you're forcing all of the players who want a Kaiju to start off as something that can effectively be curbstomped by anyone who decides to start themselves off with a MK2 or 3 Jaeger. 

 

I'm not sure how well that's going to work out, since the Kaiju are supposed to be a dangerous threat, but they're all going to be starting the game at an enormous disadvantage.

Here's an idea... Due to there being more of the lower level A player is allowed to play as more than one. Do when they are killed they are not out of the game right off. Unlike higher level Kaiju where fewer and fewer are able to reach that level.

I, for one, am happy to use a Mk. 1 Mech, providing it's fast enough to get out when things get too hairy. (and it saves me from having to co-operate with other users)

 

Also, I love the general Idea for the game, seeing as Pacific Rim is one of my favourite Movies. Let's hope this one gets approved!

I'm still going with my earlier suggestion: give each Kaiju category a different style of powers: eg. Cat 1's are more stealth based, Cat 2's are mid/long range, Cat 3's are close quarters powerhouses, etc. 

 

I think that'd work better than forcing everyone to start off at a low level and work their way up while the jaeger players can start off at higher levels straight away.

That would probably work quite well, although perhaps a level up system could be implemented for Jaegers as well, so like the Kaiju, MK Is start with one weapon, then they gain one each time they level up.

Nah, that's a little weird. Wouldn't you build as many Jaegers with as many weapons as possible if you were the person in charge of building them? A level-up system is a little funny. How about have multiple categories all suited for something different; mk.1 Jaegers are powerhouses, mk.2 Jaegers are long-range and mk.3 are speed and stealth oriented.

 

Of course, it's a little hard to be stealthy when you're a giant robot.

Starting off as a Level 1 Kaiju wouldn't be as bad if the Jaeger players also had to start off as Level 1 Mechs, though. I believe the higher level machines were created in response to the arrival of the higher level creatures in the movie anyway, so if they both start off at Level 1 and then they level up as they progress (with the Kaiju doing so slightly earlier), doing it that way would seem a little bit more realistic.

if they both start off at Level 1 and then they level up as they progress (with the Kaiju doing so slightly earlier), doing it that way would seem a little bit more realistic.

 

But aren't we already past that point? The first waves of Kaiju wiped out all of the Toa, so they built jaegers to combat them. The Kaiju should already be more powerful at this point in the war, as should the jaegers.

According to the original post, only a century has past since the first Kaiju encounter. This means that it's both entirely possible that a large swarm of Level 1 creatures could've killed off all of the Toa (since even they are most likely still exponentially bigger than a Kanohi Dragon), and that all of the Level 2 and above Kaiju could've have either A, not have existed yet in the immediate area (because, you know, it actually takes time for things to evolve), or B, just haven't made their way inside the dome for whatever reason (since they're Aqua Magnan life-forms and not aliens from another dimension, maybe the higher level Kaiju are somewhat cannibalistic hunters and are only just now showing up because all of their prey (the lower level Kaiju) are swimming off into the MU to escape them).

Either way, it could still work.

To me, it makes more sense to create different but equal "classes" of Jaeger rather than "this one is objectively better."

You do have a point, Late comers to the game would be at a severe disadvantage. We'll talk it over and revise.
