Y'know, I was planning to make a wheelchair-bound character, but now I'm considering just putting her on a Ussal instead.  "Don't mind me, just a crab, nothin' to see here."


  • 0

I'd actually have something of substance to say here, but I'm too lazy to think of anything.  >_< Er, have some BZPRPG profiles, I guess?

 

I used to help Dominus Temporis with writing MLWTB back in the day, even if I was really terrible at it.  If anyone's in contact with him, could ya help me get in touch?   :)

either could be an option... Though I guess an ussal crab could make a good substitute for a wheelchair. If you think having the tech for such a devise is limited in this wilderness world. Being that a moc wheelchair may not be able to get around...

Now on-topiccccccccc, I'm still looking for some more characters to join my pirate ship, the Tarakava Bait so if you'd like a character to have a place on the ship*, PM me.

 

*No pre-existing characters allowed. I'm sorry, but I want the Bait to consist of all-new characters so that they can have some backstory with each other.

It's a chair with wheels, I think we have the tech.

well are they off-road wheels? I don't think a standard wheelchair would survive long... they'd have to steer clear of any non-city environment and forget Le-Wahi... P-Wahi... Onu-Wahi... Ko-Wahi... Ta-wahi maybe could be accessable if they have metal flooring... So yeah... I think making a character like that would be cool, though an Ussal Crab could be more feasible... Unless Boxer style implements are allowed...

The point I was trying to make was that the character has to go inside at some point, and most buildings aren't going to have walkways big enough to accomodate for an Ussal.

Considering that the current topic is about using an Ussal as a replacement for a wheelchair, I'd say that it was safe to rule out the MNOG mini crabs in this instance.

They don't appear big enough to support a Matoran.

I always sort of thought of ussals as golfish-esque, in the sense that they will grow to fit whatever size tank they've got.  So, ussals that are housepets will stay small, while ussals used on the road could get much larger...

 

I hope I didn't just create ussal-zilla.

My understanding was that a normal-sized Ussal was big enough for a single Matoran to ride on.

I think they have... and the mini Ussal is what they ride in the Onu-Wahi caves... So apparently they are quite strong for their small size...

Given that the Ussalry is built entirely around being Ussal-ridden cavalry, an Ussal that can be ridden is probably the norm. Even before we consider how many mentions there are of Ussals being used for cart-pulling.

Normal crabs are proportionally stronger than a human anyway, it comes with having muscles built and attached differently.  Now, a crab that was made of 85% metal and mechanical parts... is gonna be pretty strong.

In all seriousness... It does depend on when you were last about. The STarter Topic has a good rundown on the plot and setting if you haven't been present for this iteration of the game at all, and a more detailed one for recent events can be provided if you were around earlier, just not recently.

 

Anyone here would be glad to help, and you can PM me or another of the staffies if you've got questions you're not sure the magic eight ball that is Discussion Topic can answer. :P

You missed an entire version of the BZPRPG. Granted it was only around for a couple months before it was killed by the site going down, but still.

 

I would suggest checking out the New Players Topic as a first step. Everything you need to know should be there.
