We'll,, yeah I think you might be. :/

:/

Psionics was banned waaaay before Dasaka existed.

Relatively speaking, I'm pretty new. I only joined sometime last spring/summer, if memory serves.

Regardless, I now feel reeeeeeeeeeeeeally stupid. :/

It's perfectly normal not to make a connection between such things.

 

Paying attention to the profile rules is so last story arc.

 

Dasaka pretty much fill in that empty Psionic slot for characters. I doubt they were planned from the very beginning.

One important thing to note is that Menti, at best, only control one or two (in rare cases three) aspects of their "element", whereas a Toa has power over every aspect of theirs. Of course, given just how versatile Psionics is, it's not a serious issue, but it's something to take note of.

Which reminds me, it mentions somewhere that some ancient legends wielded all four disciplines. Perhaps these were true Toa of Psionics, which gradually devolved to the Dasaka we see today.

I don't think it was exactly that. Just the Heroes of Old were demigod-like in power, enough to warrant being legends.

I also have a question.. Well more so have to ask opinion..
 
I and a group of characters have been in the Po-Koro headquarters since december 19th 2013.. We have contacted lloyd yet he has yet to respond so what would you guys do in that scenario? I mean i believe nearly two months of waiting is a bit much especially when we are waiting on just one person.

  

Waiting two months is nothing.  Send him another PM.  I'll see what I can do.  Lloyd's just been super busy.

  

And it's only been a month and two weeks.
 
And Nold, if by anyone you mean 'everyone but me', then yes.

We're stuck in prison, we can't really advance to the next stage of our plan unless we escape, which is less than ideal.

That would be interesting, but Destiny would have to have a role in that, and that's something the Dasaka don't hold to the same importance as the Matoran.

I just realized something! "Toa," in the Matoran language, literally means "Hero." The Dasaka speak the same language as the Matoran. Thus, "Heroes of Old"...

I'm starting to think Makuta is trying to troll us, as in the players, with the riddle, and it is the thing that is dividing the island. The riddle, I mean.

Well, the first half of the riddle seems to blatantly point to Kentoku, but I'm not sure about the latter half of it. Though if it is about the Dasaka, whoever wrote it must have known about them...

There could be something more to it, but it could be a troll all the same.

It's been made fairly explicit in the earlier posts of the same nature that he made. Maybe that's why.

 

I'm still leaning towards the idea that one of the two is Zuto Nui, though.

It's the mask that can send things into the Legend, duh.

 

So, the question is... what's the 'replacement' for Makuta? The replacement that's said to be 'shirking' its role at the moment, but about which, the mask was not ('never') wrong, meaning that the replacement will soon be actively carrying out its role as expected?

 

Dasaka? Ambages? the Piraka? or something else?

Definitely not Ambages, for reasons plot and real world. The notable one being that he existed long before Makuta fell, the second being that he's a Staff PC.

Dasaka could be, but I still don't like the idea that an entire, centuries old civilization was conjured on a whim. Sorta invalidates their whole aesthetic.

What I find notable is that the second voice says "your mask". If we assume that he's talking about the Hiripiki, then the question is once again raised of who he is speaking to. It could be Mata Nui, as he gave the mask to Stannis, or it could be interpreted as implying that it's someone else.

I've always been under the impression that the 'two-voices-conversing' posts are Mata Nui and Makuta... but I guess I could be wrong.

 

The fact that this following sequence was said:

 


My flickering thumb has just found his claw.

Correct; I do not intend for him to open the true safe. That comes later.

 

Convinces me of it even more.

 

Flickering thumb and claw? Echelon and Antidermis (After all, leftie says "The calamity you bottled, regardless of its volume, cannot open windows."). Too bad it won't be him who opens the safe.

 

Dasaka could be, but I still don't like the idea that an entire, centuries old civilization was conjured on a whim. Sorta invalidates their whole aesthetic.

For all we know their centuries of history could've been something that played out in the Legend.

Well, it would depend on just how the legend works. If it's essentially a parallel universe, then the Dasaka could have existed there for a long time and were brought over without them noticing.

This is exactly what I fear and what I would hate.

If it played out in the Legend, that's fine. But it all depends on what the Legend is. If it's an alternate world, or multiple alternate worlds, it could very well have happened, and they just changed locale. But if the Legend is fiction and merely creates what comes out at will, that's a far more distasteful possibility.

I won't like it if they came from the Legend either way; I think it cheapens their existence for them to be the result of a newbie Toa playing around with his mask. I just find the former possibility a bit more palatable.
