I think it's been established as sharper eyesight.

 

It's the most likely of the two traits for Lesterin of Crystal (the other is that they glow in the dark). And since Lesterin sport enhanced Matoran traits, I figured that was the best choice.

Is there a standard innate power for Matoran of Crystal? And if not, does anyone have any suggestions?


I normally see Matoran of Crystal as having a heightened degree of resistance to physical injury, keeping in line with Stone's physical strength and Iron's endurance.

Diamonds are actually really brittle. They are very hard to scratch, but very brittle.

 

Hit it with a hammer and it breaks. Hit it with a sword and nothing happens.

Actually it will.  You will get a small bend in the sword.

I always figured the Matoran of Crystals would be really shiny or something.

We're talking Jojo's Bizarre Adventure fabulous here.


That or something boringly appropriate like increased average clarity of vision.

Since the element of Crystal isn't a recognized element from the Bionicle canon we have no official "trait' for matoran of that element. As such, creators of such matoran are at their liberty to choose a suitable trait; as far as I'm concerned all of the above suggestions are fine, though I can't say I'm fond of sparkly matoran. :P

So basically, I went rogue for a month. Exams were heck, I didn't really have much time for anything, and after my last one about two weeks ago, I guess I just.... forgot about this place. I know I was meant to organise things with a person or two, and I'm really sorry I didn't get around to that.

So I guess I'm back now.

If someone could please give me a run-down of island/archipelago-wide or otherwise important events over the past month, it would be deeply appreciated.

I believe they are closed. Joske used them to acquire the crystals, but I think they're staff territory.

From an earlier time this question was brought up

 

Say, does anyone know where Friar Tuck went?

 

 

Nobody knows for sure; it is believed he was swallowed by a great monster known as Real Life. I believe he's alive somewhere in the belly of the beast, but for now he is missing, presumed Busy.

Dear BZPRPG members,

 

It's been a great, long run, and I've made some great memories with many of you.  It's been a pleasure participating in plots, making plots, and reading the work of others.  Through this game my writing has grown and progressed to where it is today.  Many thanks.  However, recently I've been feeling less an less inclined to participate as fully as I used to.  There are still stories I want to create with all of you, and many players I have yet to interact with, but now I feel I'm too spread out.  The only characters I have any real wish to keep moving are Ishi Polzin, Kriigata, Riaril, and Daikura Koga.  As for all the others, as much as I've enjoyed playing them, I feel it's too much for me to handle.  I know these other characters are wrapped up in plots, so I'm looking for interested players who will take them over and play them true to character.  The characters potentially available are:

  1. Eiyu Kwaiya, dashi librarian
  2. Hogo Kamari, menti vassal to Hogo Noshima
  3. Private Fraxn Black, Ta-toa member of the Ussalry (Heavy division)
  4. Lear: le-toa of the gukko force
  5. Vice-Captain Iraira: Kru-Toa and vice-captain of the Ga-Koro Marines
  6. Draeverian Joskiir: De-toa 
  7. The Angler: Onu-Lesterin

 

If you are interested in taking on a character, please PM me.  These characters need players who want to really get down and play their lives, not just let them collect dust like I am.   :)

~Kughii

Well, just so long as you don't leave. That'd be a severe loss, let me tell you.

I understand about the characters; I've been there myself a time or two. Not here on the BZPRPG, fortunately. :P
