I don't see how that's an example of strictness, considering how that person tried to kill her.

 

And shot her secretary.

OH bah humbug.  What other Akiri has dolled out such a decision, albeit part of the legal system?

Strictness would be like....heavy punishments and big limits.

 

That's a heavy punishment...

Yes, because a death penalty for treason is strict.

 

I would consider a death penalty for something like accidental manslaughter to be strict. Not for something like an attempted, pre-meditated murder + treason.

Thank you. Homeboy here gets what Grochi is trying to say.

 

Hahli - and indeed, even Ga-Koro - isn't strict. Of course they're more wary, but after the thing with the Daedra and the fact that she herself was nearly killed, what village with hopes of survival wouldn't be? It's still an open and warm place, still the same Ga-Koro as ever. In fact, when she was interrogating Verak (the only other criminal who's been brought to her thus far) she joked around with him here and there and then let him off rather easily with a short-to-moderate jail term.

 

Treason has a high price. That's a given. But it doesn't imply strictness.

That sounds like a character you'd throw in Ga.

Awesome, thanks. :)Out of curiosity, have any of the Metru-era Matoran played any significant role in the story thus far? I'm rather a fan of Tehutti, and I'm hoping he'll eventually make an appearance.

Well, the Tehutti, Ahkmou, Nuhrii people pretty much were where they were in the first series: random Matoran. So, sorry, Tehutti is just a stranger on the street. :(

Wait, he did?

Then, he might still be brainwashed by makuta...

And if the stuff Ambages was absorbing was Anti-Dermis(Or just makuta's darkness, but same concept)

Then Ambages is controlling Ahkmou?

OK, despite reading the BZRPG saga guides on the wiki and reading through some of the present topics, I'm still somewhat confused; what exactly is going on in Ga-Koro with the marines and the expedition to Xa-koro? Is it related to the arrival of the Ussalry, or are these two separate events? (And is it still possible to get into one or both of these storylines?)I'm sorry I have to ask all these questions, I really am trying to dig through the saga by reading what's already been written, but there's a LOT of material and a lot of backstories being referenced that I'm missing, so it's somewhat difficult to know where I can jump in without stepping on someone else. :blush:

The current expedition into Xa-Koro is an entirely personal agenda, you needn't worry about that one.

I believe he's referring to the Ga-Koro diving team's plan to go explore Xa-Koro. Khervos and Tuli just got there first.

Daylaria, one of KNI's characters and a high-ranking Marine, is leading a diving team to explore the ruins of Xa-Koro and see if there's anything interesting down there. If you want to be a part of that, you should ask him. (He's currently going by Shuhei Hisagi).The Ussalry's visit is a completely unrelated event and was only open to the first four Ussalry players who posted saying their character was there.

Strange thought: Aqua Magna had a moon of its own, right? I seem to recall something about moonlight on Mata Nui, but for the life of me I can't think of where. (For now I'll assume a moon unless otherwise corrected.)

I believe we have only one moon.  Some people RP with two suns, due to a relatively recent canon announcement that Solis Magna was a binary system, but that's open to interpretation by players.  I generally go with one moon, one sun.

I believe Metru Nui clearly had two moons, though that may have been artistic licensing by the screenwriters.

Metru Nui was inside the robot's head, so the twin suns (maybe twin moons too) were artificial, I believe. I go with one moon and one sun as well, because that's simplest.

All we know about the game's location is that it's an island in the middle of a giant ocean that's too far away from any other theoretical islands to travel to them.

The game started years after the loss of the Toa Mata. While locale was pretty similar, I don't think plot and just about everything else was similar to canon.
