This is the discussion topic for the Matoran und Panzer. Any all OOC posts and profiles go here. To play you need to post a profile for any characters or armor you'd like. Once they're approved you're good to go! I'll keep a list of important posts and news here as well.
You can play as a Matoran, (Can use an Edd for elemental powers, mass-produced and multiple-user armor is built for matoran usage) Skakdi, (Vision power + Elemental powers in conjunction with another Skakdi) or Vortixx (Big and strong, innate technical aptitude) Custom species need a lengthy description and approval.
Self Explanatory. You can stick to boy/girl or add as much extra as you want, island culture is accepting about those things.
Matoran get an elemental power, Skakdi get an element and vision power. You're free to choose any element/vision power from canon that isn't light or shadow, or request a custom power. Custom powers need to be balanced to be approved. Gear follows similar guidelines, basic items covered in section 2.1 are good to go, high tech items will need a detailed description and approval. Matoran can list their kanohi here. Keep in mind that kanohi given to matoran are powerless.
An image or detailed description will do.
List a couple character traits, choose an MBTI type or whatever else your heart desires.
This can be a brief history or a novel, just try to stick to the game's universe. Don't go mentioning Dark Hunters or great spirit robots.
This is described more below, what this section is is any Armor your character either owns or is a crew member on. If you want to be a pirate or sailor, you could describe a ship as well. They have similar weapons and traits as Armor.
Because any cool vehicle needs a name.
Exo-suit, light, medium, heavy or Fikou.
For lack of artistic skills, I haven't drawn the Armor or described them too much. Just think WW2 era aesthetics, heck, a picture of a real life tank is fine by me.
Who are the PCs that man the Armor? This can be worked out IC or OOC in the discussion thread.
Refer to section 2.2 for basic loadouts, any custom or additional weapons need detailed descriptions.
Here is the list of kanohi to pick from and their effects, some are passive and others are active. For simplicities sake, assume you press a big red button to activate the on/off type effects. As for the magnitude of effects, just play it fair, alright? Using a Hau to block one direct hit from a heavy coilgun is fine. Four simultaneous hits isn't.
