Thanks to the power of the Techna Nui's advanced SCPU, numerous communications through the network can be simultaneously handled, processed, and sent. Important announcements will also be posted here for all Technans to see. If you have a private matter to discuss with one other person, please use private communication methods. Standard protocol applies here; spamming, trolling, flaming, and other unruly messages will be found and stopped.To submit a character, please refer to the Character Database; once your character has been approved, you may proceed aboard the Techna Nui.Thank you, and have a nice day.

Mef Man, I will have to decline your offer to interact, for a few reasons.A. Forcyte is your superior officer, and not a friendly one.B. He's currently too caught up in his work to leave the CKC.C. ...He's currently debating whether or not to give Rakata's Hacker a scare. :PThank you nonetheless,Shyyrn

Heads up, fellow rpers, my character Sylux is always free for interaction since he's a bounty hunter who won't say no to a job. So if you want someone dead or want a little mayhem to occur, just find my character.

Quick question before I actually start thinking about a profile for this...What are the limits on the Mask of Remembrance? I'm curious on that, and though it wouldn't be used on my first character, I want to know before I start any profiles. =P

The Mask of Remembrance can plant only one thought in one person's mind at a time. That thought can be at its strongest a persuasive impression, not a compulsion; thus, it can be ignored to varying degrees of success, depending on the target's mental strength.

The Mask of Remembrance is line-of-sight. As long as you can see the other person and visualize him or her in your mind, the Kanohi will work.If you mean inserting past memories into another person's mind, you can add an extra memory, but 1. such a memory would be hard to synthesize, and 2. it would only be temporary. There is a way to get around that -- I'm not saying how, I'd like the players to find out for themselves -- but I will say you can permanently "add" a false memory through indirect means.If you mean inserting past memories into your own mind, that's easier as you're accepting the past memories as true and thus adding them to your own mind.

Alright, now time to make my group of criminals... and watch as they destroy your petty city through the power of crime!Like J-Walking and stuff. Oh, and literring. Terrible people.

The Toa Techna are watching you. >:(

In any case, at least it looks good so far. Certainly has the most attention of all the RPGs.

I have a feeling the attention is due to Techna being posted before all the other RPGs. I'm glad it's getting attention, though -- the sooner players get warmed up to the game, the sooner we can start getting really into the story.

@Lev: That's the thing. $#@[)0III44@~ isn't one person-he's 4+. :devil: But really, one counter-hacker is wreaking havoc on the hackers in general-being a complete thorn in their side. He doesn't really need to bring them down if he can frustrate them enough to give up. And that's not even counting what work the Toa Techna are doing. At this rate, the (apparently measly) ranks of the hackers will be deserted/counter-hacked/blown up/incarcerated in days; I think this is a call for more hackers, if only to even the current odds xP

Here's a reminder to everyone.Your characters are not gods. NPCs are just as strong, or agile, or clever as you, or in some cases, even more. Do NOT shred them to pieces.Thank you, and have a nice day. :)

I quite enjoy your character--or at least, the fish summoner accompanying him. :D To answer your other question, Mef Man is introducing several characters to cigarettes, and the Toa Techna are establishing contact with one another.And I second what King of No Isles said.Rakata: Please remember that as of now, the Hackers do not do overt acts of violence. Sneaking into computers and uploading viruses, yes; smashing into libraries and injuring people, not so much.Your faction might be better served if you keep a low profile and try to rendezvous with other Hackers. Just a suggestion. :P-Shyyrn

Well Hubert, at least your character knows how many d8 damage a laser rifle does. :POn the subject of NPCs - typically, all players are superior to NPCs, save typically a few very powerful ones. And in this case, all of those NPCs are the Toa Techna, who are PCs. However, I assure you, if you were walking around Lunctus Castrum in Elementum-Nui and shooting guards, you'd be dead faster than you can say, "I am dead Blargh!"Of course, I think that city has more guards than this one has people. <_<Though to Rakata, why are you killing them? You are a psionics user with a mask of mind control! You have a thousand other ways to get in!-Toa Levacius Zehvor :flagusa:
