lol so much intro to philosophy in this thread lately. light is light and dark is dark. you can kill either of them with a lightswitch and they both happen at least once in twenty four hours. no need to get all "time is a flat circle" about it 

 

especially here where pretty much nobody is really light/dark anymore

Ghosthands' remark made Mr wonder something.

What exactly did Makuta want?

As there was no Metru Nui to keep the Matoran from going back to in this universe, what was the point of toying with them for however many years Matoran history goes back in this game? For fun? As an experiment? If Makuta really wanted to, he could have unleashed the Rahkshi army that appeared at the end of last arc much earlier and overrun the Koros. What stopped him from either burning everything to the ground or forcibly create a society in his name ruled by him?

Maybe he was an egotistical jerk who wanted to play with the Matoran and watch them suffer.

The BZPRPG-verse works on the anthropic principle that the prime movers work in such a way as to produce the plot, knowingly or unknowingly. The proof being that we are here to observe the plot

 

(circular logic)

I kinda get the Morgoth analogy, but Makuta, like others above me said, is not only the dark figure archetype but also the oppressive tyrant, and unless you like living in a fascist society where your rights and even your lives are at the pleasure of a being that might as well be evil incarnate, it's not a very good deal.

 

Morgoth created the orcs by taking elves and doing... stuff. He also was an opressive tyrant, and indeed not a very good deal.

 

 

Well, hello. :)

 

I just realized that the trio of guardpeople that have been interacting lately now all have T names. XP  We need to call ourselves the T-squad or something.

Moving on from this whole philosophy thingy, can regular Le-Toa (ie not Korero or Lewa) fly using their elemental powers?

Lewa was able to fly just using his Katana and mask in BC4, if I recall correctly.  Idk if that applies here though.

They -could-, but it would be really awkward. It be like throwing yourself around in a cyclone or something.

They would probably need a glider of some sorts and maybe a Miru to use any useful sort of flight.

It should probably be mentoined that I have a character that is open for interaction. He's been getting spells of willlessness lately.

Thanks guys for all the answers! :D Another question: A few other players and I are setting up a Toa Team with me in the lead. Are we allowed to say that they arrived on Mata Nui in canisters like the Mata did, or would Toa Canisters count as foreign tech/too advanced/etc etc?

What other elements can pull flight off? I like to think Gravity can, or at least 'falling in whatever direction they want'.

Magnetism is more 'Create magnetic force, affecting my body/armor, in THAT direction'. At least that's the way I've been handling it.

It would have to be attracted to or repelled from something.

You just make a magnetic force in midair somewhere above your head.

Nope. In the same way that a Toa of Fire can sustain a flame in thin air without fuel, a Toa of Magnetism can sustain a magnetic field in thin air without metal.

It is a shame that Pala-Koro died, but it does happen.  What's going on in Le-Koro/Wahi right now? Anything relatively open where I could move Tuki? c:

 

Thanks for the welcome back~

 

As for me, I'm not going to get involved in these arguments, HA!

 

And remember! Even if your Le-Toa can't fly, they can still swing from vines, and that's awesome.  xD
