Stay tuned tonight for a... thing... I've been working on with Nuju. Well, with his consent and input.

 

Recommended listening to prepare yourselves!

 

Okay, maybe I am exaggerating a little. The Ark/Map Room theme might fit better.

 

EDIT: Okay I lied. In my defense, I lost a lot of stuff when my browser crashed... anyway, this should happen sometime in the next day.

Oooohh... Another staff quest, maybe? Well, I might sit this one out as two of my characters are on a staff quest that Is taking far too long.

 

I'm interested to see what this is going to be like, though.

In the time before time, when matoran mistrusted one another based purely on their elemental leaning; they feared and hated those that were not like them, and believed their own element to be superior to all others. A matoran of each element was invited to a gathering, by whom is not known. They began to argue with one another, believing there to be some form of deceit. The confrontation nearly came to blows, and a mysterious Turaga appeared, saying that he had invited them. The Turaga said he had hoped to rationally talk of peace and unity, but that they had already proven they would not be willing to be rational. With a wave of his staff, the matoran's heartstones were changed, swapped with another's. Their element was suppressed, and they gained the element of another. The Turaga spoke: "Perhaps an alternate view would do good; go and live a moon's time with your new kinsmen. Then return here, and speak of your experiences."

The fifteen bewildered matoran then awoke in their new settlements, surrounded by those they had never seen before. In a moon's time, they returned, and found themselves changed. They greeted the other matoran as if greeting friends, laughing, comparing stories. The Turaga again appeared, and asked if they would be willing to embrace their Unity as matoran on behalf of Mata Nui. The matoran agreed, pledging to make a strong, unified Koro.

The Makuta would have none of this, the servants of Mata Nui pledging to unite. From the darkness he reached out, and tore the matoran's heartstones out. The Turaga was shocked at the Makuta's vileness, and labored to save what he could. He managed to salvage what he could of their bodies, fashioning amulets with the heartstones, ensuring their souls were safe. He returned these amulets to the elemental tribes, who in mourning pledged to have a dedicated wearer of the amulet, to show empathy with their kindred matoran. To celebrate this, Mata Nui created a star in the sky for each of the amulets.

Thus were the Amulets of Elemental Kindred created.

 

These amulets are very real, and carry power available to those bold enough to find them... Two expeditions are now being mounted to Ga-Wahi, to recover these unique artifacts, these pieces of living history! And, that's right, your character can sign on! Now, which one your character would be interested lies in one of two ideologies, philosophical alignments.

 

"It belongs in a museum!"

 

Aokora, the leading expert on the legend in Mata Nui, was informed by her friend, Nixie, that a new star has appeared. Bolstered by this, and the arrival of the Dasaka, the ga-matoran archeologist has convinced Akiri Hahli of the cultural significance of these amulets, and what a help they could be when used as an aid to bridge the cultures of the Mata Nuians and the Dasaka. She has need now of a good, strong group of individuals who want to share history! And, should you not be interested in that, there's monetary payment, and you might be able to convince her to let you borrow some of the treasure. Dasaka characters are welcome as well! Who knows, you just might have some unique insights into this expedition...

 

"So do you!"

 

Maeloc, an Onu-Turaga Legacy archivist, made a strange discovery when he was cataloging items in the Citadel's archives. A strange amulet, that when he wore it, suppressed his elemental powers, eventually replacing them with abilities normally available only to those possessing the element of Ice. Maeloc sees these artifacts for what they truly are: potent tools, and potential dangers. Seeing as the Legacy is taking efforts to eliminate any dangers to its regime where it can, Maeloc secured permission to mount his own expedition. Any that join him will have the plunder from the Amulet's resting place be divided up according to him... and, since Maeloc is a ranking member of the Legacy, he has been authorized to extend membership in the Legacy to those who assist in this effort. So, all you petitioners wanting to join on, this might give you something to do! And, there is a potential for unique loot!

 

 

These amulets are unique, and can change hands very easily. They could be payment, gifts, exchanges... or it can be stolen. I shall endeavor to keep a 'living list' of sorts here. Few locations are known, so it may be short now, but this will grow! As more information comes to light, I will unveil more information, such as what the specific powers are. Right now: Upon being put on, an amulet suppresses the bearer's elemental powers totally. After an hour, a small measure of the amulet's corresponding element is gained: matoran, turaga, and toa recieve the element's passive trait that Matoran have, and toa and turaga gain a small active ability, that is much more draining to them to them than a native user of the element. Skakdi and Lesterin have their elemental abilities suppressed, and they both gain the associated Lesterin ability.

  • Ice Amulet- Gives the user resistance to cold and ice equivalent to a ko-matoran. Toa and Turaga gain the ability to coat their hand in rime, and upon touching something it is coated in numbing frost. Maeloc, Keeper of Kraata.
  • Water Amulet- User can swim much better, and can hold breath for a much longer time. Toa and Turaga can manipulate up to a gallon of water.
  • Magnetism Amulet- The user gains a better sense of direction as well as an internal compass, and they can magnetize a metal object (or hand-sized portion of a normal metallic object... including a hand) as if it were an ordinary magnet.
  • Psionics Amulet- The user gains a strong resistance toward mental attacks, bordering on outright immunity (like the Dashi). Toa and Turaga gain the ability to hear Ideatalk. Lesterin and Skakdi wearing this amulet possess mental shielding, granting them great resistance toward mental attacks (including those of Dasaka!), and in general the wearer has greater intelligence.

 

Thank you to Nuju Metru, for working with me and making this possible, and Ghosthands for letting me have a Legacy character for this, and allowing membership to the Legacy.

What happened to Echelon's meeting with Larikon? I've seen both players online recently, but there's been no posts in Ko for a few days now.

What happened to Echelon's meeting with Larikon? I've seen both players online recently, but there's been no posts in Ko for a few days now. 

 

Life (specifically, revision for my upcoming exams) has me very busy at the moment, and when I do have free time I don't always have the energy for more than a short, spur-of-the-moment post—which, for things like Ko and the Mangai quest, doesn't cut it. Those posts take time and thought, so the busier I am, the less often I'm going to be able to churn them out.

"A ruby dragon, eighteen topaz serpents, three amethyst foxes, and twenty clay wagon wheels."

 

It was a slight overcharge, even for the capital, where prices tended to go higher, but not enough that someone who really desired the box would not be willing to pay for it.

 

"Or two mukau and a Husi, if the Jahagir would prefer it that way."

 

The Jahagir had a slightly thoughtful look upon her face. Reaching quickly into her surcoat, she pulled out a bag of coin, and counted them out. It was a fine, silken bag, easily worth several serpents on its own. She produced the amount Hatchi stated to the exact coin, along with an extra dragon. That dragon alone would buy several Mukau. The Astyzyar Jahagir must have been in a good mood

 

IC:

 

"Well, its rather unique, you won't find anything like it on Sado. Tell you what, between the two of us, what's three hundred dragons?  It's barely a drop in the bucket, and a bargain for this piece."

 

It seems like inflation is rather high on Iki. =P

BZPMoney. Besides, I think it was at some point established that the 'dragon' is the basic unit of Dasakan currency, the equivalent of the Mata Nuian widget.

There are several denominations of the Dragon currency, each with a different coloured core. I think the highest one, like what Yumi threw around before the party, were red at their nucleus, while the Drahons she spent for sushi were blue. All of them, however, are referred to collectively as simply "Dragons." It's a way to excuse the variation in value people give, since it's possible that characters speak with the understanding that they're dealing with a certain denomination. Hatchi may have used a mid-level coin while this merchant used a lesser value.

 

Or maybe the scarf really is that expensive. I know for a fact prices for a scarf vary wildly depending on whether you buy it at TJ Maxx or Herrods.

 

Alternatively, we can just smile and nod and accept that currency is an ethereal aspect of the game that cannot be effectively monitored or controlled.

Hence why Aokora is offering 'modest pay', instead of a concrete number. As my actual characters, the only ones I've had to think about money are Vakua (had a day job) and Casanuva (cannot hold onto money to save his life)

No srsly why was grokk in n&d? If he starts interacting with other players I'll eat my hat...

 

Also, Keeper, I really like the idea of these amulets. There's 16? Which elements do they pertain to? Or is that something we're gonna have to find out for ourselves?

He even reached GD. Somebody had better deal with Grokk before he escapes the computer.

Fifteen, actually. And yes, you will need to find out for yourselves. Fairly easy, though, they are color-coded.

 

If you can find them.

My eyes will have to take a break to recover from such horror.

 

Anyways, I'll be off to charity work from Friday to later Saturday. So interaction will be nil.


I occasionally return to BZP for a nostalgic trip back. Hit me up on discord if you need anything.

Attention, people! 

 

Do you want to play as a pirate? No? Oh. Well, that was a bit disappointing.

 

If the answer is "Yes!" then good news for you! I'm currently in the final stages of working on a- You guessed it!- pirate ship! My character, Lesora is the captain, UngluedBike will be playing first mate when he gets round to creating a character, and Iron_Man5 will be playing second mate, again when he's made a character. So PM me if you want a character on my ship*, the Tarakava Bait, saying what position you want them to hold, and I'll see what I can do! :)
