Anyone else think that the Dasaka may have come from the three-finger-island (IF it exists in this RPG)? The name Kentoku Archipelago kind of brought it to my mind, as well as the fact that they landed on the Ta-Wahi beach, which is in that direction. Just guessin'.

So, about Marks. Can I make a character with one now, or no?

 

Also, someone needs to make a character with both an Anxilia and a Parakuka so they can get yelled at by two different beings only they can hear.

I used to have a banner here.

 

But that RPG is dead.

 

What now?

I dunno. That's like asking for 2 custom weapons and powers for a Toa.

This would be great, if it were done well.

Nope, I think they're closed off for now. If you're really keen on having an emotion-eater though, you might try pitching one of Tobduk's species to Nuju. Tobduk was an Order of Mata Nui agent who got stronger when he was near to anyone who was angry, and could use kanohi.  He was significantly taller than a toa, but lacked elemental power.

Marks have been closed for a while, in addition, Nuju Metru wanted me to remove it's function. The only reason he still has it is for his arc that he's in and his development. Otherwise, there's not really any point to have one right now. Sorry. :/

They were never outlawed. The plot ended and all the Marks were removed except a couple. Through either further plot or character inactivity, Utu became the only one left.

Alright, I have a question for y'all.

 

I have seen multiple references to disks that don't seem to follow the norm of regular Bamboo Disks. In particular I remember one of Toatapio's characters using something called a "razor disk".

 

Am I correct in assuming that disks here in this RPG have been upgraded to include metal or otherwise custom versions with far more efficency?

Because the plot ended. The characters got together and gave it a conclusion, and the Marks, as plot devices, disappeared. They've all served their purposes and the plot won't be returning. Thus, neither will the Marks. Rules and regulations had nothing to do with it.

Most disks, to my understanding, are still the bamboo type that were seen on Mata Nui.  Many PCs, however, have customised their disks, making them out of metal or crystal, giving them bladed edges etc.  We do not, however, have Kanoka.  Yet :P

Technically, we're not in the MU, so our environment is made up of natural materials common to Aqua Magna.  That is, if that part of canon holds any value.

Incorrect.  You are confusing the liquid form of Protodermis with molten metallic Protodermis.  The former is what the Silver Sea was made out of, the latter is what all those refineries in Ta-Metru were pumping all over the place.

Technically, the island of Mata Nui was created when the Great Spirit Robot's camouflage system malfunctioned and leaked onto the surface of his face, and hence all of Mata Nui is made of various forms of Protodermic material.

 

And anyway, this is all academic because once again, ladies and gents, this ain't canon.  Best to see what the staff have to say on the matter.

Actually, all but Nuparu were from Kolhii teams. But every Kolhii team had a member of the Chronciler's company who's now dead, and considering inter-Koro relations at the moment, I doubt there will be any league games.

No, quite the opposite in fact. With all the tension between the Koros there's definite need for a Kohlii tournament to ease the tension, the villagers will want something else to think about.

 

Then again, it could backfire by emphasizing village chauvinism and spark rivalries.

 

I still say the former is a good enough reason.

Yeah, okay, but who else would play to replace the dead Chronicler's? PCs or Canon NPCS? If the second, I'm thinking:

 

Ta-Koro: Jaller and Agni

 

Ko-Koro: Matoro and Jaa

 

Ga-Koro: Hahli and Kotu

 

Onu-Koro: Onepu and Nuparu

 

Le-Koro: Kongu and Orkahm

 

Po-Koro: Hewkii and Ahkmou Ally

 

You guys have changed my mind, actually this is a great idea. Oh and seeing the Akiri play would probably help morale.

 

Edit: Woops, Kapura's dead. Sorry.

I'd love to see inner-koro matches first.  With PC characters working up to getting on the team with the Akiri.  It could be a contest amongst the villagers for League positions, then we can pit the teams against each other. :P
