Psionics

As promised, if slightly delayed, here is in the info on Psionics as an MU element:

 

Colors: Blue and gold

Gender: Female

Prefix: Ce - (pronounced "say")

Matoran Ability: Unable to be mind-controlled or read telepathically -- by studying them, Helryx learned how to shield the minds of the OOMN members from telepathy.

Powers: A Toa of Psionics has the following powers:

* Telepathy

* Telekinesis

* Ability to do a damage-dealing mind blast (mental damage only, not physical)

* Limited mind control (cannot make someone do something that is against their pre-existing moral code)

* Creation of illusions -- so lifelike they can be experienced by all five senses, but cannot fool techological systems

* Ability to mentally mask her presence from bio-mechanical or organic life, but not from technological systems

Could you make it light blue and gold?

 

Who else would be happy with that?

I think that's kind of implied. Toa of Water are referred to as "blue," but we know they can be light blue, dark blue, medium blue, and even green or white.

Exactly, So it would only make sense for someone of psionics to be one of those shades of blue and a shade of gold. But I'm wondering, would yellow count as a shade of gold? (as it does in Mata Nui's set). Adds a bit more to their MoC-ability. :/

The prefix and Matoran ability are a very nice touch.

 

And to everyone complaining about the color - Just look at Toa of Stone and Po-Matoran. Brown, tan, dark orange, bright orange, black, gray, yellow. Just because blue and gold are THE most common colors for Toa of Psionics and Ce-Matoran, doesn't mean it's the ONLY colors they can be. (That's also my thoughts on Lightning, I mean I've got a white and yellow Toa of Lightning beside me at the moment, even though the "most common" colors are blue and yellow.)

 

Also, on the "hodgepodge of masks" comment: ANY elemental mask is possible, after all. Also, a Toa's advantages come from wielding more than one power, generally one Kanohi and one element. A Toa wearing one of the masks that holds Psionics powers is able to use their element, and some Psionics as well. Course, that means that they can't use any other mask as well. Whereas Psionics Toa could shoot a mental blast while, for example, using a Mask of Diminishment.

I think Purple and Blue would have been better, but it's all good.

 

Yay for Mary-Sues! :happydance:

in regards to the blue and gold thing...Think of it this was. THe base colours are the "skin", anything else is armor. So a ga-Toa could have gold armor, but it's not part of her natural colouring. A Ce-Toa would have blue and gold body with...silver armor. or...white armor...or something like that.

 

 

but thank you for the added information on them, Greg. It'll come in handy ^.^

Or think of a Toa of Psionics as having Gold "skin" with Blue armor. :o

Use your imagination, guys. Whatever floats your boat, it's not as though GregF will go to great pains to make an official statement just to contradict your one MOC.

Look everyone, don't think of it as a blue Toa with gold armor, think of it as a gold Toa with blue armor!...

 

...Actually, thinking about it, that would be AWESOME. :br:

 

Thanks for the new element, Greg. One of the best yet. B)

 

Plus we need a few females. :)

Interesting, sort of like a combination of the powers of OOMN members, Hakann's mental blast, and the mask of

telekinesis. Okay, short of ice, this is now my favorite element.

Brutaka is not a Toa, so I don't think that's relevant. Skopio is red, that doesn't mean we can't have red Toa.

 

Yes, you could duplicate many of the things this Toa can do wit a variety of masks, but you have to be able to constantly switch masks in the midst of battle to do that. What if, as a non-Psionics Toa, you simply don't have time to do that?

 

As for the Toa of Gravity -- actually, the potential exists for elemental masks of any of the elements. You could put on a Mask of Fire and do much of what Tahu does, does that mean we don't need Toa of Fire in story? No, because a Toa of the element is going to be better able to control it than another Toa just wearing a mask.

It's a gender joke!

EDIT: Oh, and I forgot the mask of mind control. Man, these Ce-Toa are powerfull!

Actually, their abilities of Mind Control are limited. They're kinda' like Jedi knights. Telekinesis, limited mind control/Jedi mind tricks and so forth.

 

I wish I had that giant General Grievous thing so that when I build my MOC, it can haz lightsaber. :D

I'm sorry but can someone inform me on where Psionics came from? Who has this power?

GregF canonized the element when it was suggested to him.

Wait a minute... doesn't that mean that the yellow and blue matoran who ordered the Hagah Plasma Cannon is a Ce-Matoran?

Hey who copied me! :P

Gold and Blue? It's ok, but my character had these powers since last year! And he's a male AND he's purple.

Mixed feelings.

I doubt it. I'm fairly sure yellow and blue is a toa of lightning's color.

 

~U_K~

 

Nope, blue and white is Lightning's color, according to Greg.

I'm vastly fond of the addition of this as an element; for that, I thank you profusely. The only thing I'm not fond of is the colour scheme - blue would be fine as part of it, but gold? The colour scheme for Lightning would work better in this context.

Yeah, just wondering whether the illusions were hallucinations or holograms. I guess hallucinations is more likely, so mental protection would block it.

Odd...wasn't your suggested color for lightening blue and white? What's with female characters and blue? Aren't we allowed to break out? BREAK OUT I SAY!

 

:P

 

I might of actually preferred pink...at least it was new.

 

Ah, vell. Then there's still the possibility of it being applied to plasma matoran. YAY PINK MEN.
