I had a character that got an artificial limb a while back, that was an interesting process to write. I just had the arm have two hooks at the end that he could barely close and open. While he could move his shoulder, his elbow was locked in place. Here is what it looked like.

Will the crew members for the voyage PLEASE not post for a little bit. :)  I have some things to attend to, and then we can leave Ga-Wahi for the Islets.

Mata Nui was secretly an evil overlord and the Makuta was fighting for the side of good?

Echelon's personal base of operations is located deep in the bowels of one of the glaciers, so he and his assistant Aerus often use the natural tunnels in that area.

I must be exceedingly clever, then, but I assure you this is entirely coincidental -- I've never even been aware of exactly where Echelon's lair is. Now, this does open a few very tasty possibilities... <3

Drat, and I was having so much fun RPing with Helios.

 

Then again, nobody's saying that the glacier under which Ko-Koro wants to start mining operations is the same as the one where Echelon is hiding.

Takua's Mata Nui explorer states that it lies between two glaciers. But there's probably several more in the rest of Ko-Wahi.

 

Helios will be venturing into the base of one of those adjacent ones, to my understanding.

 

Echelon having his lair right next to the Koro sounds a little, well... dumb

 

And we all know Echelon isn't dumb.

 

EDIT: I checked the intro topic, it confirms Takua's version. I'm assuming Echelon's lair is somewhere in the wastes, judging from the posts about wading through the drifts that the Legacy chars posted

I have.

 

But I do believe there is a blog entry for discussion of this. It's certainly irrelevant to the current RPG.

Correct, GD.  Good deduction ;)

 

Echelon's lair is indeed located beneath one of the glaciers in the Wastes.  It was originally built into the side of the glacier, but during the timeskip the area containing the chunk of ice in which it was built collapsed, and the lair ended up deep within the glacier, mostly intact.  Echelon has since made repairs and some changes to it.  It can only be accessed via a metal door in one of the ice caves, and the tunnels around it form a natural maze, making it very difficult to locate the lair - and to return from doing so.

 

And so, you can be confident that Helios will not bump into that particular necromancer :P

If it's underground, anther entrance would be, well, down, through the ice. Once in the maze (assuming you hadn't by chance landed in the lair itself) all you'd have to do is mark your path, using your elemental powers to show where you've been and where you haven't. It would take a while, but it would by tediously simple. And beyond this, a miner could simply see Aerus or Echelon himself and follow them.Really, any competent RPer could find a way to navigate to the lair once gaining ample reason to be there.

I believe it was made quite explicitly clear that the glacier open for mining and the one which houses Echelon's base are separate.

 

Also, how would a Ba-Toa mark his path, with black holes?

Simple: he wouldn't. I'm not saying any Toa could. The vast majority, however, could. And you don't even need to have an element, realistically; if you want to go old-fashioned, you could place stones or a string.

Or flags, Ko-Koro's favourite marker. Hence why Jaa said "go to Kokkan" because he, the trader, will give Helios anything he can give so Helios can do the mission.

...Karz. I've been away for a week and didn't notice the first mention of that expedition, I'm already signed up for the Xa-Koro thing, I have a feeling Voutok hasn't done enough to really define his personality to the point of "three-dimensionality" (make no mistake, I did clock in multiple days of thought into him for the long run and he's not a cliché or "flat" character; I might just be suffering "First Timer's Paranoia"), and I can't think of a legitimate reason for him wanting to join unless a "Help Wanted" sign was posted all around Ga-Koro when he returned from the Diving Expedition.*sigh* Maybe next time.

Behind this sucky post count, a writer and hardcore RPer lies in wait of a reason to post...

For those who will likely ask when reading some of my non-RP posts: for me, "*shot*' = "I know that what I said was something stupid and I am acknowledging this before people think I'm serious."

Oh yeah, and my current BZPRPG character bio can be found here.

"Why...me? Oh yeah, that's right. I'm weak. I'm of a minority, a minority of people with a common trait: we hear too much. And what we're supposed to hear hurts to hear. When I'm alone in a silent room, I can hear a pebble dropping from a mile away. I can hear a motor boat being started up several yards off the coast. A whisper from outside, I can hear as if they were talking right at me. An explosion in another koro, I hear as if it's just outside. Sounds useful, right?"
"Wrong."
"It's a curse, if you ask me. The same pen dropping inside this aforementioned silent room would ring in my ears. If I stood by the same motor, I'd get a headache. The same whisper would ring in my ear like two metal beams being slammed together in front of my face. The same explosion would render me deaf for years...thank the Spirit I thought of getting me something to dampen the noise, or I'd end up like the rest of my kind..."
