If I were a betting man, I'd wager that they were either last season, or by some relatively new players. It was ruled roundabouts the start of the new season that manipulation of internals through elemental abilities wasn't legal.

 

(Granted, messes with some of my tricks)

 

(but it's a pretty logical ruling)

You're a winner! I'd forgotten that ruling so thanks for reminding. Sad to know as OP as it might be another Dorian vs. Heuani fight is now against the rules. Reading that was such a highlight from last arc.

The only couple of times I ever saw it was (I think) in a medical situation with the other happening with the permission of the player.

So, would it be completely disingenuous to reveal my character has an infected kanohi and that's why he's been committing a wide variety of criminal acts across Ga-Wahi? Or would that be acceptable for salvaging my character?

Pretty sure an infected kanohi would be noticeable right away, also with makuta -gone- even having an infected kanohi on wouldn't do anything to you, since there isn't a makuta to enforce his will on the wearer

The infected kanohi would hypothetically be painted over so the rusted look wouldn't be an obvious reveal.

 

As for Makuta being gone, well, ######.

Whoops, completely forgot about that ruling.

I just realised, even IF it isn't counted as part of the ruling, mask pulling would be autohit still, since it would take time, and the other player has to respond to feeling their character's mask peeling off.

Wait, Makuta is gone, but Antidermis still exists. Wouldn't the resident Antidermis in the Infected Kanohi cause personality changes?

No. This was discussed over and over during the 2012 arc, as were several not-actually loopholes. One Mask Per Character!!!

No because antidermis in the BZPRPG is not the essence of a Makuta. It's some kind of liquid evil that we will find out more about in due course.

Thing is, infected masks are not necessarily infected by antidermis, so really the antidermis has no purpose on the discussion of infected kanohi

On the topic of manipulating internals/the body through Elemental Powers, specifically via Iron powers: is it legal IF you have player permission for a very specific reason? For ex. : my medic character has used his Iron powers to fuse/separate armor plating for medical purposes (enhancing breathing abilities and stabilizing wounded areas specifically).

As long as you have the other player's permission to do so and it isn't used for doing something ridiculously overpowered there shouldn't be a problem with that.


In other news: 

Horde Skakdi players, Taoki talked Rhow into making a trip to the dark walk so he can learn a bit more about what makes Rahkshi-armor work. If you want to join in on a little side-adventure, just join up with the two at the great Takea =)
