New bionicle thread. Shit we got done so far:>the base for the matoran rpg system> 3 skills for the rpg: melee, ride and ice craft>a wargame (not posted yet)>mata nui circle of life (and protodermis ) how rahi and matorans are born>mata nui is a bro>great beings: no sense of right or wrong>Bionicle legends: matoran hell (the repair shop) and the red star
Any request for the next skill?
Does anyone remember that point-and-click browser game from fucking years ago? It was set on an island, you needed to retrieve some item? I don't know why but I have fond memories of that game.
>>24142200Mata nui online game?
>>24142200I know what you fucking mean. I loved that shit, I can't remember if I beat it or not. You know what I remember? I remember having watched a movie in some theatres once when I was a kid, and I remember having seen the trailer for a Bionicle movie. Not the fucking stupid shit movies that are out now, I mean one involving the fucking six original Toa and not the general level bullshit that came after the Bohrok and stuff. I can STILL fucking remember it vividly in my head, but nothing of it exists. What the fuck man?
>>24142289YESSS! That was my shit.
>>24142200>>24142303Oh, and not only that, but I always went to McDonalds and got those funky little Matoran, so many of them that I could make at least like three or four of the "super" Matoran. But I lost them all somehow and all I have left is a purple little mask of what is supposed to be that one Matoran's mask in which he documents the adventures of the Toa, is the mask of the Matoran in that shitty first Bionicle game for the GBA...Man... Fucking nostalgia trips. God damn it.
>>24142289Hot damn, that was 2001? I was only six years old when I first played that.
Rolled 5, 1 = 6>>24142177I still need some drawfaggotry, if someone want to do one.
Rolled 8, 2 = 10>>24141911Old thread is here:http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/24088642
Swim skillThe swim skill is used mostly for, well swimming. It's also used for holding your breath, and fighting underwater. In many systems, the water movement skills (swim or sail) are useless unless the story is in sea. In bionicle, the swim and sail skills are always useful because most of the world is water
Why not disk throwing? If we've got melee, we should have ranged as well, right? Or was there a reason why we shouldn't last thread?
>>24144801>>24144801There is range skill. But because there was no requests, I rolled a random skill
>>24144820Sounds legit. Just started reading the last thread, are the skills in >>24088667 the same skills that were agreed on?
>>24144820Aww shit. I need your help /tg/. FastI just checked the skills, and I saw that there is no jump skill. Jump is a wind skill, but there are already 3 wind skills:-performance-ride- rangeThat leave me with 2 options:1. Remove performance. This will leave the game with only one or two social skills (depend on if sneak is used for bluff)2. Put range in another element- ice or water. I will stil need to remove one of their skills.So how much you care for performance, /tg/?
>>24144837 I don't remember agreeing on skills. Or talking about them at all. I just made them all up. And now I have a problem.
>>24142289It's available here, if you want to play it:http://biomediaproject.com/bmp/games/>>24144951Can we get a list of skills for each element so we can pick, also will there be profession skills.
>>24144951Dude just move ride as an overall skill. Wind aren't the only tribes that use vehicles or animals to get around.Ussal crabs, those bohrok things, the speed boats... it's simple as that, really.
>>24145152>the elements and skills:>fire-melee-blacksmithing-leadership>water-swimming-sailing-sneaking>wind-performance-ride- range>ice-knowledge-survival-ice craft>stone (brown)-unarmed fighting-running and climbing-stone craft>earth (black)-awareness-strength-engineering
>>24145159I think ride also functions as handle animal.>>24145165Do you need fightint and unarmed fighting? You could remove unarmed and move melee o stone, then give fire ride. Also will there be an overall proeffesion skill, so people can put ranks in things like fishing or lava farming
>>241451591.The le-matorans are the most known raiders. 2. The METAL BOXORS don't belong in the ride skill3. I can't make a non-elemental skill. 4. Other tribes also use range weapons, sail in the see and hunt. But only matorans of the right tribe can use the elemental powers of each skill.
>>24145194>>24145194Unarmed is more Martial Arts. I can't just put them together.Ride has nothing to do with fire (the fire tribe never used animals)There are Profession skills: ride, ice craft, stone craft, engineering and blacksmithing.
>Day 5 of Bionicle nostalgiaWow, I didn't expect this at all.But then again, tiki robots always make a large impression.
>>24145258So where do Ussal crabs fall under?
>>24145386Ride. Every matoran can ride, but the le-matoran are the best riders. Crabs and mahi (the cows) are the basic mounts for starting matoran
>>24145418Alright then, I can live with that.
I guess I will just combine sail and swim, and put range in water.Anyone object?
>>24145165>Meh, Bionicle thread, minor nostalgia>Glance through elements and their skills>See EarthAll of my yes. Something about the combination of extreme power, but also sophistication and wistfulness, just seems awesome. Best element, IMO.So, yeah. What do you all have figured out for this in-the-works RPG, other then names for skills? Any consensus on mechanics and dice type?
>>24145482Combining sail and swim sounds alright, although putting range in there... sounds sort of weird. It still feels more like a general skill, although le-korans did it way more, specially on mount. I can't really come up with a better solution though, so go for it I guess.
>>24145519You can read it all in the last thread. But here:The system will be skill-based and not class/level based, and will use the d20 as the main dice.There will be 6 elements, and every element have 3 skills. In every skill, after you put x points into him, you will gain to choose a new ability. So if you put x points in earth (awareness) you could choose to get a low light vision or improved hearing. After y points in a element, you get a new ability- if you put y points in water, you could see better underwater.>in character creation, you choose your element, which will give you bonus to the element's skills, and a unique ability.you can choose your equipment based on your element, and if you have the right skills, you can start with an animal are magical weapons.>the basics of fighting:>you attackyou roll range/melee/unarmed +weapon bonusthe target can block or dodge- block is melee/unarmed + weapon bonus, and dodge is (jump+awarness+run)\2.>you hitThe damge is range/melee/unarmed +weapon bonus. the target armor lower the score.if the armor is to high, nothing happend. > you damage the targetyou lower the target HP. if you remove 1\2 of the target HP in one attack, you knocked his mask off. if the target reach 0 HP and is still awake, he is now crippled/knocked out>mental and elemental attacksthese attacks are like normal attacks, only you roll the element or the power score (if mental) aginst the target element or oppesing element (if you use fire attack, you roll aginst fire or ice) or the opposing Principle- for every element, there is a Principle (water is purety, stone is creation, ice is peace, fire is courage, wind is faith, and earth is posperity). the effect change from attack to attack>in the end of a fight/skill test/when the GM want, you will get exp, and you could put those point in any skill you want. for every level, the price is 2level-1 (so level 1 cost 1, 2 cost 3....). .
>>24145548there are no coins in mata nui (as far as i know). if you want to buy something, you have to trade somthing else for it.I also posted 3 skill trees: melee, ice craft and ride, like op said
>>24145548>>24145566Seems fairly simple. I'll go ahead and skim through the previous thread and see what was brainstormed there. It'd be awesome to see this become a well fleshed out system.
>>24145566Could you do blacksmithing next?
>>24145548Will you also make some sort of a character sheet? You know, to keep track of stuff
>>24145548>>24145566Are you allowed to take skills that aren't in your element, even at some sort of penalty?
>>24145566In Mata Nui online game 2, the matorans used widgets for trading.
>>24145606I will think about it, but I want to do one skill of each element before I start doing more skills in one that I have already done one
Reposting from a few threads ago: a brief history of the Great Beings, the shittest gods>LOL GUYS LETS ACT AS GODS ON THIS WORLD AND CREATE A BUNCH OF AGORI AND OTHER CREATURES AND SHIT TO WATCH OVER>Oh man watching over all these villages is hard... let's turn some random villagers into beings of extreme elemental power and let them do the work while we go back to our science!>Oh fuck all the inhabitants are fighting over energized protodermis what do we do>Oh! Let's create INVISIBLE SHAPESHIFTING ROBOTS that kill everyone holding a weapon!>Fuck, turns out the planet is going to be destroyed anyway.. might aswell turn off the robots>FUCK WE CAN'T TURN OFF THE ROBOTS>Ah shit might aswell just let them run around>Hey, guys, let's make a giant robot. Planet is going to explode anyway so might aswell have some fun until then>Aww yeah it's working this is- FUCK THE GIANT ROBOT EXPLODED(cont)
>>24145656The only penalties are that you have to start the skill from level 0, and not level 3 like matorans of the right element, and can't reach levels 18-20
>>24145713>Right, new plan. Let's make some mini-biomechanical guys to live inside and maintain this new giant robot>Haha sweet it's working this one hasn't blown up>Right, while we work on the giant robot's AI, let's make some demi-god to keep things running>Wait fuck what if the giant robot starts dying, won't all the guys living inside it die aswell?>Oh, I know! Let's make a powerful mask which lets you bring the robot back to life!>Fuck, Dave touched the mask now everything he touches comes to life. Might aswell just lock him away for all eternity>Guys, you know those bigger biomechanical guys we made to protect the mini ones inside the robot? Well, what if they go insane like the invisible shapeshifting robots we made, and start killing everything?>LOL I KNOW LET'S MAKE ANOTHER UNSTOPPABLE ROBOT TO KILL THEM ALL AND HIDE IT SOMEWHERE INSIDE THE GIANT ROBOT>Hey guys, we've finished the giant robot's AI!>So, uh, hey, demi-god we made earlier, sorry about this, but the giant robot is going to replace you as god now, so we're going to imprison you on this island for all of eternity just to be dicks LOL BYE>Right, well, lets send the giant robot off to explore space>Alright, let's get the fuck out of here before the planet explodes
>>24145717Ah, that's reasonable.Though what about the Chronicler? He can fly, he can fight, and he can crow!
>>24145725Av-Matoran in disguise, he's allowed to defy categorisation.
>>24145644Yep. All saved on my computer.I'm writing now from iPhone, so I can't upload it.
>yfw you realise that the 2004 - 2005 storyline means that all the mystical shit hidden around Mata Nui was hidden there by the turaga to dick around with the matoran and toa
>>24145725But he don't use elemental powers, isn't he?
>>24145717I kind of want Kapura's Flash skill to be a hidden skill you can pick up.Is that wrong?
Thinking about it, any good bionicle-based rpg really needs to capture the sense of exploration that made the first online game so good.Does anyone else remember the feels of seeing "the sandstorm has cleared" and knowing you could finally get to Onu-koro?
>>24145723Sounds like a reasonable/well thought out setting and history.
>>24145777I never had any of the roadblocks because when I first discovered the MNOLG, it was still new but was complete. The only problem I had was Dial-up, same as everyone else.
>>24145799I ordered the very first kit when they announced it, Tahu/Vakama? I got to experience every little bit of it along the way. I remember rushing home after school to see if I could explore any more of the island yet. When the lava first cooled, and you got to raise the bridge to get into Ta-koro? So much excitement.
/tg/, I'm considering running a matoran quest set on Mata Nui. I posted about it in one of the other threads; it would be set in an alternate timeline inwhich, at the end of MNOG/2001 storyline the toa managed to kill/properly defeat the Makuta.I want some opinions regarding characters, because I'm not sure if introducing some characters would make it too much like bad fan fiction. What would peoples' opinions on the following characters be?:>Some of the original toa as turaga>Some of the original matoran as toa and turaga>Some OC toa and OC turagaMost characters would be OC matoran, and the player character would be a matoran (element and maybe profession decided by players) who explores Mata Nui. A character idea I want to put in at some point is a matoran magician who runs around claiming to have elemental and mystical powers, when really he just knows about herbs and stuff like light stones after studying under some turaga.
>>24145786Don't worry, pretty much everyone in an important role is incompetent.
>>24145855The bohrok still should be awakened, they were a pretty cool element. If you want some of the toa as turaga, I think they all should be, you can't break up the team. New toa could arrive in canisters, but it might be cooler with matoran having to deal with the bohrok without toa help.
>>24145873The only faction leaders I can think of who don't fuck up horribly all the time are Helryx and Artahka.Makuta Miserix did pretty well until he got beaten up by The Makuta. Then The Makuta did pretty well other than getting beaten up by toa and eventually getting killed.
>>24145855I don't think the magician thing would work all that well, people know all about things like heatstones and lightstones, it's not like they're hicks.
Have you guys seen the bionicle wiki?There's some crazy shit on there
>>24145888Yeah, I want the bohrok to be involved in some way aswell. My plan was that, in his death throes, Makuta managed to wake up some of the bohrok, but not properly, so the ones which are awake just wander around solo or in small groups, doing minimal damage but still acting as a threat.>>24145896Fair dos. When I said 'stuff like light stones' I meant more mystical materials rather than literally light and heatstones, but there's probably only so many 'magic' herbs and materials I can introduce before it stops being tiki robots and starts being wizard robots.
>>24145941Such as the red star that's supposed to reincarnate dead beings, but, due to being broken, leaves them stuck there?>>24145950You could make the bohrok be more of a threat and be the main bad guys of the campaign, by making them more focused on destruction.
>>24145774Haha.It's not even a hidden skill. It's and ability in the run skill
>>24146462so the next skill is running and climbing. which cover every form of ground level movment which you will do. walking, running, climbing, balancing yourself on a rope... all of this are part of r&r
>>24146462>Ability in the run skillSweet.Kapura was so cool with that skill.
>>24142303You're probably just thinking of the commercials.
>>24145888Don't break up ANY of the teams, not the toa nor the Chronicler's company.I want Hafu to be a toa, dammit!And I don't care what Lego says, Hafu has a mask of strength!
Shame that this game got cancelled.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rfVgyxvr5Bs&list=PL84BFEB413C88D9E2http://www.mouseplanet.com/hometheater/ht010618.htm>LEGO® Bionicle: The Legend of Mata Nui supports LEGO's largest new product launch ever - a new line of collectible LEGO TECHNIC action heroes and foes based on its legendary story of the Bionicle. The software title is integrally linked to the Bionicle building sets, bridging the gap between the physical and virtual worlds. Players may enter special codes found on the play materials packaging to the game to gain access to secret game-enhancing features. Additionally, the first 300,000 PC games produced will ship with an exclusive and collectible Mask of Time, and players also may view and print exclusive LEGO TECHNIC Bionicle model building instructions and other unique Bionicle artwork as they play.
>>24149891I'm still not entirely sure why it was cancelled at all.
>>24146676Wait, since running and climbing is a stone skill and covers walking and balance and such, does that mean that with no ranks you could actually trip over your own feet on level ground?
Jesus man BioniclesI remember I used to love those stop motion series people made on You TubeI made a bunch of my own characters (including a pretty cool ice matoran with a fuck huge mechanical arm (one from the 2005 toa and the 2004 robot dudes)) for a series but never got around to doing it
I have to say, the villains of the series were pretty awesome, up to metru nui at least.
>>24153705No, because there is no roll for walking. It does mean that you will be slow (base speed is 6 feet per round +your ran skill) and you can't climb shit
>>24160831Oh sure, just trample my dreams of an entire party of stumbling matoran because no one took the walk skill.
>>24161199>no one took Walk>everyone took DanceThings just got funky.
Rolled 19 + 10>>24161199Just put them in an Area with a small slope, and tell them they need to do a climb roll every round. It will be hilariousBut maybe, just maybe, they will kill you for being a dick DM
>>24161326I knew there was a reason I liked you, /tg/.Dance everywhere! Confuse and confound your enemies! Entice the ladies! Look styling with your amazing moves!
Rolled 41 + 10>>24161326How I play le matorans
>>24161334Now that's just too mean.
>>24161334For some reason I am reminded of this.
Rolled 36 + 10>>24147164Run skill tree:Level 4: try to catch me- when you sprint or charge, you move a triple speed instead of double. Or light lift- you can climb in normal speedLevel 8:dust cloud: when you stop sprinting, you create a dust cloud that gives you and everyone nearby +3 to their dodge.or wall warrior- you can attack enemies in close combat and block with normal score. You also don't have to roll climb again if you get damagedLevel 12: the art of traveling very quickly by moving very slowly- when traveling by foot, you move at your sprint speed. Also, in combat, you can (once per fight) do three turns in one turn. Or rock magnet- as long as you are nearby something to hold on (cliff, rope, bridge... ) you suffer now fall damage, and can stop your fall at any time.
>>24162647Level 16:rock fall- if you sprint while climbing, you can create a rockfall, which will make everyone below you (friend or foe) to roll his climb vs your. If you win, he fall. Ran other it- if there is any effect that create Illusions, you can roll your stone vs the creator chosen element to make it disappear Level 18:may the rock carry you: if they are nearby, all of you allies can use your climb roll instead of their. They also get any ability you get. Rolling stone- once you start moving, nothing can stop you. When you charge, you can roll run instead of strength for rolls like breaking walls, pushing and crushing enemies, and crush damage. Also, when sprinting in a balance check, you can roll your balance after you finish running (that means that if you get to a place that doesn't need a roll check to walk on, you don't have to roll at all)Level 19: mountain raiser- when using this skill, first make a run roll. when charging, you create stone pillars or holes in the ground. To jump the pillars, you need to pass a jump roll against your run roll you have to make when using this skill-5, or the roll-8 if its a hole (you can just take two round to pass the hole without a roll). Pillars disappear after one round, but holes stay for an hour. Or high life- everything you can do on the ground, you can do while climbing. Stone crafting, giving an inspiring speech, hunting, sneaking, dancing... You can do them all without any penaltyLevel 20: dust run-as long as you can see the destination, and can get there in one round, you can get there- even if there is nothing for you to run on on they way. When you are sprinting, nothing (beside mental attack) can harm you, and you don't trigger any traps. Or legs in the ground- you cannot be knocked down, fall from a balance or clime checks (only if someone pick you up and drop you you can fall) or have your speed slowed by normal or elemental effects (only mental effects will slow you)
Ok, I'm trying to learn to draw matorans, but I need to know /tg/, what kind of matoran do you like more?This? *snip*
>>24162848Or this? *snip*
>>24162848>>24162867I kinda like both, though I must admit that I am more fond of the original ones.They are just cuter.
>>24162848this one looks like an Infant, so it's a no in my book.>>24162867this one looks good, and there's room to add personal equipment, change some small stuff and just personalize it to your taste in general.
>>24162667List of drawing I want for my matoran rpg:1. The toa nuva as pimped out tiki warrior, and not "my face is melting!" 2. Metru nui with more elemental/tiki theme- the fire part is a giant forge, the wind part is a jungle of wires...3.If a pices of a rahi rebuilding themselves into a living rahi. Kinda like what tahu did in one of the trailers
>>24164368>>24164248Yea, that's my problem. It's the ability to customized vs the original design of mnog.The two designs aren't even that different- it's just the shape of the hands and legs
>>24164551and that the top one doesn't appear to have a torso. But I digress.Couldn't we just go with both and let the player in question pick how he wanted it to look?
>>24164592>>24164592When the player make his character, he can choose the design (there isn't any stat difference between them). But when I'm going to do the art for the matoran rpg, I want to know what kind I should use
>>24164677well, I still think that >>24162867looks best. but in the end, It's really up to you.
>>24162647>Level 12: The Art of Travelling Very Quickly By Moving Very SlowlyAwwww yeah!I'd so play this system.
Rolled 30 + 10>>24165955You will have to wait until I done with the abilities (of the skills and the elements) and then I will do an "alpha" to the game, which is a quest I made. It will be an alpha, so things will change (I will add things like weapons and armor) but you only need to wait until I'm done with the abilities (I do one skill tree per day, so it will take two weeks more or less
>>24162647>Level 12WE KAPURU NOW
>>24166777You don't fart fire, but fuck that, we mastered the art of Travelling very quickly By moving very slowly!
I still need to properly spell (and grammar) check it, the rules for ranged weapons are not done, there's only one unit stated up and there are only a few token masks, powers and weapons, but I could post an early draft of the wargame rules if anyones interested.
>>24166932Go ahead, so at least we have an idea what we should be expecting
>>24166932>>24166977Right here it is. I may change to using a D20, rather than a D100, but this is a first draft.
>>24166932Quick question, are mask powers going to be of interest at all for the player? What I mean is; are the players going to be able to collect and use masks?
>>24167004Collect, probably not unless I put in some sort of campaign system. Use, yes (although I've only written stats for the mechanically useless kaukau).Just in case you're confused this is separate from the RPG the other anon is doing.
>>24167019Maybe kaukau shouldn't do nothing. I guess a some water attacks will drown the target, so you should give it a low cost and make the toa immune to drowning
>>24167097I was considering adding in terrain rules later, and then giving the kaukau an ability, but I also wanted a mask that would cost nothing, incase the player didn't want to purchase an expensive mask on that toa. The Rau might be a better choice for this, though.
Aw, man, Bionicle. I think I have my old Makuta figure lying about somewhere. He was my first experience with a real BBEG in any setting. God, the memories.
>>24166990Yeah, you should make it d20, d10 or even d6. d100 is way too complicated for a fast game
>>24132027>Nobody trusts each other and thus might undermine the toa's attempt to save you? A'ight, I got this, there's a little guy who's gonna gather other little bros together to inspire you to unite. Unity, motherfuckas!
>>24167301I have a d20 version, they're pretty similar (pretty much every number is divided by 5) so I may switch over to using it.
>>24145165Is there a particular reason why there are only 3 skills per element?
>>24167306I am so glad to have inspired something.>>24167019Well it's only useless to the mechanics if you never go near water. But if Bionicle has taught us anything, it's that water could strike at any place, at any time!It could even strike at your very own village!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rX8gvwOAnaQ
>>24169761Unity, duty and destiny (the most used numbers in bionicle are six and three).
anyone know if there's any chance of getting the Taipu/the Matoran figures?
>>24172320If you can find a lot BrickLink is pretty useful.
>>24172396>BrickLinkthanks mang. Have this.
>>24172475THE FETISH GROWS STRONGER
>>24172600I know.Fun, Isn't it?
>>24172475>>24172629Help a guy out, get robot shark girls. I love you /tg/.
>>24172655and /tg/ loves you back.
>>24172475>>24172629I am lusting over lego bricks. I am disappointing myself. This is some new low even for me.
>>24172629Those Pohatu masks ruin it for me. There were no smooth, round ones?
>>24172700It could be worse. But I know how you feel.>>24172725apparently not. But I'm not complaining.
>>24172875I guess I will grant you your wish.
>>24172875I found the gallery!http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=516517
>>24166831Swim! Swim!Special: ta matorans can use this skill for lava surfing Swim skill tree: Level 4: flesh map- you can easily make a map for any place you have been in the lest (swim) days. Or move with the waves- your swim speed is now (6+swim)Level 8: water slicer- when firing a range weapon underwater, you can fire it for it's normal range, instead of only half. Or silent water- when your ship pass near a water rahi, it doesn't threaten the rahi. The rahi can stil attack it if he has a reason- someone taunt him, he is hungry... Level 12: slippery when wet- as long as you are in water deep enough for you to swim, you trigger no traps (you can't now if there was a trap, unless someone else triggered it). Or free pass- your ship is no longer slowed by where you sail- close to the shore, far from the shore, above a reef... Storms still slow you, however.
Isn't there a cat one too?
>>24172898Level 16: part of the waves-when moving underwater, you can't be slowed by any normal means- storms, plant life, rahi... You also don't attract predators rahi, but they can attack you. or living map- when making a map, you write helpful notes that help you pick the right way. You can know what is the best way to go in this time of the year, where is a good place for an ambush... When using one of your own made maps, you can roll your sail instead of knowledge for information about the environment. Level 18: streaming- while swimming, you can create a water stream, Which will increase you swim speed to 1.5 of its normal value, or it will slow your enemies to 0.5 of their speed (or push them back if they fail their swim check. Or jet ski- you channel the waves themselves to move your ship. When sailing in a small ship you can increase the base speed to your water score. You don't need wind or to row Level 19: submarine- you can make any ship you are sailing start sail underwater. Everyone on the ship can breath and move normally, but all the weapon still suffer the same penalties for fighting underwater. Or Sea Swirl-you can create a vortex at sea, which will affect anything that is not farther then 2*your water, and will draw them at a rate of your swim roll-their swim/run/strength roll (every time you will need to use your swim roll in this ability, use the one roll you make when you use this ability) when someone get near enough to the core (your water/3) he suffer (your swim roll/2) damage per round. This damage ignore armor.Level 20: water support- your skills are not limited by the water, but empowered by them. When swimming or underwater, you can add half of your swim skill to this skill rolls: sneak,jump, ride, run,strength and awareness. Or sea ship- as long as your ship is in the water, it will not break. Your ship HP can still get lower, but it can't get to 0. Unless you got out of the water (got to the shore, thrown up to the air...)
>>24172891Last post of these. You want more, >>24172897has the web-adress.
>>24172938So now that I did a water skill, that means that the next skill is an earth skill! So take your pick /tg/ which skill is next?
>>24172974Engineering, obviously. We need to engineer our party some robot shark girls.
>>24172320NO! That is Hafu! It will always BE Hafu! You done fucked up, Lego, just roll with it!Besides, Taipu being so strong and wearing a mask of strength is just too lazy of character creation! I liked that he had the mask of night vision and he was scared of the dark.Besides, not all strength is in the arms, it also comes from the heart. Hafu braved the bohrok to save his fellow matoran, risking his mind and body for the good of all.Fucking strength, man.
>>24172940Bad boner! We had a deal!
>>24172947Hey that's that robot from that anime.

>>24173107Oh thank goodness.

>>24173145Maybe you could help her with her "flesh map".
While it's not a fetish robot, I thought this was a cool thing. It's pretty much how I wish the reintroduction of the original toa had been; cool as fuck.

>>24173200Lewa was my favorite. I couldn't stand it when they took the axe away for a pair of katanas, of all things. Didn't he wind up breaking one at some point, too?

>>24173272You could always just help her polish her masks.>>24173248We're all abnormal here.
>>24173256The whole Nuva redesign wasn't as cool as it could have been, yeah. I still like how starkly Takanuva contrasts with the others.Here's another original idea as to the Nuva redesign.
>>24173248Not really. But I object to most of them on a matter of principle:I do not mix normal Lego and Technic.

>>24173187>>24173353Hmmm, I just noticed that is an actual CAPE thing. I wonder what set it came from? As for polishing masks, I thought you meant rub her shoulders until I noticed the Kakama-cheecks.Also, those feet are just hilarious... and is that.... is that a jewel sticking out of her ass? Is she just pooping precious stones?Same guy as >>24173248
>>24173353Is that a butt plug?

>>24173515>>24173548I was more pissed off at his tiny fucking arms.He's not deformed, goddamit, he's just hunched over!

>>24173661>only getting your porn from paheal.netYou poor soul.
>>24173613I fucking love Pohatu! Especially that Image of him.Looks like he's dancing like crazy.
>>24173674You can never be an actress, you amputee, robot bitch.
>>24173613I have this, from his movie.
>>24173685it's after Midnight here and I'm tired right now, so I'll blame it to lazyness and the conservering of energy.
>>24173666Dude! Those hips!
>>24173613Hell yeah, my first Toa.And he always was chill as fuck.Where did you get the trap bit from, though?
>>24173715Put him in a sundress and you got a good trap.
>>24173728But then he would look like a soccer player in a sundress.That is to say: not very trappish at all.
>>24173728With those massive feet things?
>>24173719it was a joke about his womanly hips
>>24173747>>24173763Don't act like you don't have weird fetishes too.
>>24173779Not even close to that. There are like 3 layers of fetishes to get that to be sexy.
>>24173779Hey, we're not insulting your fetish(es).We're just curious.
I wish Bionicle hadn't stopped releasing the little boxes and bags of masks you could get after 2003. It would be cool if you could get alt-colour versions of the masks in 2004, 2006, 2007 and 2008, other than the few released in certain sets.
>>24173845I wish they would've done that, too. I also wish they would've kept around the sets with the action features and the masks and stuff. After 2006, the little ball launchers just didn't feel the same as the cool gears and rubber bands.
>>24173828You seem mad.
>>24173845They switched over to disks and then to spinners and sphere. It seemed like a real drop in effort.>>24173904To infinity and beyond!
>>24173604>Pohatu don't gets any actionForever a stone.
>>24173884Sad that the little ball launchers were the last launchers you got to assemble yourself. 2007 and 2008 was just lazy with the gattling guns, the big silver ball launchers and the weird air pump things. And the 2007 things where you were meant to slot the squid into those weird ugly crossbow things, and then pull so they shot forwards, but the squids were made of really unstretchy rubber. Got to admit though, even though they lacked the nice self-assembly aspect, I found the flashing laser swords and the laser eyes of the 2006 sets pretty cool
>>24173673And this is bad because?
>>24173957Hey, a rolling stone gathers no moss.
I forget how old I was - couldn't have been more than about 7 or 8 - but back in the early stages of the storyline Lego held a contest. It might have been a semi-regular thing, actually - they'd post a picture of some sort on their website and invite everyone to write a short story about it. Anyway, the picture they put up that time was a Bionicle prompt. Something up in Ko-Koro, I think. Well, if there was ever a time I was going to write something for one of these contests, it was now, and I churned a story out and sent it in. Fast-forward a few weeks and I got called downstairs late at night by my mom. I distinctly remember standing there in nothing but my underwear, learning that I'd won (which come to think of it sums up my life pretty nicely). My prize was a fifty dollar gift certificate, which to someone who saved up for a Game Boy by catching crickets in the basement was like being handed the keys to El Dorado. You bet your ass that went right back into more Bionicle stuff. Huge, huge part of my childhood right there.
>>24173997Anyone have that do not fist the androids picture?because that's exactly why
>>24173960The gattling gun thing seems, to me, to be fairly fragile. I have the Lewa set (which, while fully articulated, frustrates me because there are no delicious gears) and the gun thing always makes this ominous creaking when loading or firing. Also, it just looks ungainly, so there's that.
>>24174051Well, if shes a bionicle, then twiddling her inner bits is just gonna make her arms swing back and forth.
>>241740717/10, made me chuckle, but unfortunately I'm not in the mood for a full on belly-jiggler.
>>24174051>Implying i would not make some sweet sweet safe love with them.
>>24173997Bionicles have no reproductive organs. There is nothing you can do with them.
>>24174115Fuck yes i can!
>>24174115its called "dongle play"
>>24174115It's like you don't want to find a nice Toa and build a better tomorrow together.
>>24174115Live the dream, anon! Live the dream.
>>24174115>He does not know nothing about non-vaginal sex.
>>24174115>implying I wouldnt get a mask jobSpeaking of, their faces had a socket explicitly designed to take hard, cylindrical objects. Itll be fiiiiine.
>>24174126>>24174127>>24174137>>24174165>>24174174>>24174195>tell /tg/ it can't have sex with something with no sex parts.>uproar.
>>24174206if it has a pleasure sensor, we will stimulate it
>>24174206Does the mask of water breathing help when you go down a girl?
>>24174195How would that work, a mask doesn't move (not counting the movies).
>>24174286The mask itself is not the face.Everyone in the Bionicle universe is a tiki warrior.
>>24174286He is talking about "mouth" under the mask.
>>24174304Yes, that's what I was talking about.>mask job
So, which toa of water is best?
>>24174347Looking back, those movies were terrible and the designs were... kind of bad.Also, Metru Nui; what the fuck was up with your voice actors?And Michael Dorn.... I love you and your amazing voice, but did you really need that paycheck?
>>24174206I might be wrong, but I think all the other Toa Mata had their leg pieces the other way up.Why does Gali have them that way up? Delicious womanly thighs
>>24174423I know the movies weren't very good but I still really liked themMight rewatch them actually
>>24174435Onua had his legs like her, but that's for muscle.
>>24174435Onua has his legs the same way up.>>24174449The fourth movie is pretty different from the previous three.
>>24174327Well, Onui has some slits in his.
This is one part of my childhood that i never though i'd see sexualized
>>24174468>>24174470Delicious muscly thighs
>>24174479They'd probably be too small. Toa are (apparently) 7.2 feet, if you want a sense of scale.

>>24174494Gen1 Pohatu was running around with his dick hanging out. Is this really that surprising?

>>24174666yes satan, it is.
>>24174738That's good to know, I had worries about this.
>>24174747Silly anon! I am not satan! This is written Satan you foolish mortal.
>>24174784Just pay attention to descriptions and always ALWAYS check what it's filed under. "Complete with box" is much different than "Complete".Took me a while to find a reasonably priced Kopaka who still had the cannister and the instructions.

So, getting away from the bonkles porn for a second, can we get a consensus that the 2001-2003 setting on its own would make a pretty awesome story? You could probably leave out the Nuva stuff, too, and also the maskquest (because fuck that merchandise driven shit).
Aw shit son, Bionicles, fucking sweet. Though I only had Tahu, I always thought Pohatu was the best, kicking motherfuckers to death.Also, the Bohrok were pretty terrifying for enemies. It was always interesting how the Toa got their shit kicked nearly all the time
>>24182006>>24182016I... have the weirdest fucking boner right now.

>>24182119I didn't want more.I'm not sure if that's a good thing or not, but thri-kreen legos don't turn me on(yet).Also, he'd make frightening headway if he decided to do something useful
Huh, its too bad. When these came out I was too old to play with them, except when I went over to my cousins and he showed me his collection.I would play pretend with him with these little damn bionicles because I was too old to justify doing so in my spare time and I sometimes got complimented on it by my mother for spending so much time with the kid.God I just missed all the bad ass toys...'89 here.
>>24182130Actually I'm not the guy who started posing them. I got the pictures from a thread on /toy/.
oh my god, is thjis actually a thing that is bieing done by /tg/? I fucking love you guys
>>24182119http://www.flickr.com/photos/zemata/ also, everything's here.
>>24182006>>24182016oh godI'm so sorry for posting these first, I've completely derailed this thread
>>24182566Don't worry anon, I'm sorry to.
>>24172974engineeringThe engineering skill is used to make most of the high power non-elemental stuff (like lightstones or mining drills). It's also used for adjusting, making and piloting exo-armor, like the METAL BOXORS. It's the only crafting skill that can use material from the living, but you can also use metal or protodermis (or even antidermis, if you're feeling evil or mind controlled )
>>24182172'90 here. I was just young enough to catch the first two waves (Mata and Nuva) before middle school temporarily beat all the joy out of my "loser faggot" hobbies.I couldn't stand the movie regardless, so I suppose my parting from the franchise was inevitable. I still had enough nostalgia to fuel a full perusal of the Bionicle wiki a few years back, right as the story was wrapped up. Looking at everything after the MNOLG trio, I think I got the best possible window of exposure. You missed out.
What do you choose /tg/- unity, destiny or duty?
>>24184251Destiny, of course.
>>24184251Duty. Who gives a fuck about destiny? They are robots. They live forever (or until the complete their destiny) they have time.
>>24182006>>24182016>>24182100I remember seeing this on furryaffinity and it has a porn story that goes along with it.http://www.furryaffinity.net/view/7304958/
>>24184251Unity. I might be destined to do some shit, and it may be my duty, but without unity I would be able to do absolute jack.
>>24184667Unity's probably pretty important, it's place in the solar system is taken by the planet where most of the story took place.
There should be rules for fusions. Though half those rules would be about how the pcs control them mutually.
>>24182006The fuck is that?>>24182016Oh wait.... oh no it's a....>>24182100Fuck.This design has too goddamn much going on.>>24182119>by a furryWell no wonder, furries are the main purveyors of neon nipples and dicks.
>>24184837Yep, that's one if the problems I have with the PRG- the super-matoran (or whatever it's name is) he is made out of 6 matorans, stronger then a toa, and can be made out of any matorans, even low level ones (well, according to the fluff). Even if the players could decide who is using him, it's a game breaker- it can beat even bosses at very low levelsMaybe I will just wont put it in the rpg
I have a bunch of bionicles. None of them are in one piece, pretty much all of them disassembled. These threads make me want to get back into the big bag of them and make stuff.
>>24184837Oh yeah, the matoran can do that, huh....Still bullshit. I liked the original Toa Kaita, who were billed as like mystical spirits that the Toa merely gave bodies to.Too bad it's nothing special anymore.
>>24184964Do it. Do it now
>>24185095Well, turns out I forgot to bring them when I moved out. Damnit.
>>24185194Aqua magna, where most of the story takes place, is in the same place as unityis in the symbol.>>24184950The matoran nui requires one matoran from each element. You could make it so using it means they sacrifice versatility from raw power, or you could make it a limited use thing.
Anyone noticed that, after 2005, toa pretty much stopped having individual personality?The Toa Mata had stuff like internal conflict going on, and they all had their own personalities and ideas about how to act. The Toa Metru, less so, but it did shine through at times, like when Matau got Vakama to be a good guy again after he got all depressed and joined the Visorak Hoarde as a Hordika. Then, in 2006 and 2007, the Toa just act as one big lump. They have a few lines of personality each, but they never come into conflict with each other or have their characters develop properly; only Matoro has a bit of character development leading up to his tragic heroic sacrifice. Same in 2009; even though it's back to the Toa Mata/Nuva, they just act as a big individual lump, other than three toa being in the sky and three in the swamp. Then in 2009, most of the Glatorian appear in the storyline about two times each, with only those accompanying Mata Nui having big roles.The exception to this is individual toa in special sets; Lesovikk had a great story, as did Takanuva, and Toa Ignika was quite interesting.Really, the character focus shifted to the villains after 2005, when the villains started being individual characters rather than mass produced drones (rahi, bohrok, vahki, visorak and six highly skilled but characterless rahkshi): even though they weren't the main characters, the Piraka, Barraki and Makuta had way more character than the toa they were fighting. The way the Piraka tried to keep it together but became more desperate as they kept fighting the toa and getting closer to the Mask of Life, the way the Barraki became more and more paranoid and convinced the others were going to kill them, how the Makuta started attacking and killing each other out of paranoia and fear.
>>24186030Shame that I never followed the story after the toa hordika.It might have made me appreciate the later villains more.
>>24186030Yeah, it really did devolve into paper cutouts of characters fairly quickly. Though the mata had the best characterization because of the game, the animations, the comic, and the books (which were eh). Movie, what movie?Basically, the mata got all the best writing, and afterwards they didn't need to work as hard to catch the fans.
>>24187656What do you mean by that? Like what happened to the underworld after all the matoran were put on the surface?
>>24188237I mean that I stopped buying bionicles and following the story after the Web of Shaddows saga.And I never learned more about the later villains, like the piraka, besides of the hilariously bad piraka rap video, which put me off from the series even further.
>>24188458Basically, the piraka are a bunch of thugs will love-level elemental powers. They somehow manage to overpower one of the most well equipped toa teams ever and hold them hostage.
>>24187656after the whole web of shadows thing there was nothing good or note worthy. just a lot of "meh"
>>24188542Even better, the toa team lead by Jaller was captured by members of their race and is now their slaves.
>>24188829You mean Jaller "fucked up a bohrok kal with his bare hands" Jaller? Jaller "personally led his entire guard into battle at the Kini Nui" Jaller? Jaller "I'm not going over to Ko-Koro to fuck up whatever messed with my patrol because then they'd attack while I'm away" Jaller?Fuck you, Bionicle canon. They were ALWAYS tiki-robots with magic and the matoran are NOT helpless children, they're the regular people you'd see on the streets and the TOA are the aberrations.>wrote "bear hands" originallyAs funny as that is, Jaller is even more manly because he doesn't even HAVE bear hands.
>>24188933It's the last part of this chpater if you really want to read it:http://bioniclestory.com/LatestStory/StorySerial/ReignOfShadows11.aspx
>>24189000>that chapterOh FUCK you, Greg.Fucking fuck, that's it, I'm going to write my own private canon just like I did for Star Wars. No more of this 'official' garbage.
>>24189051Guys. There is a better fluff. Just read the last thread dammit.
>>24189569I know, the best one I saw was that Mata Nui is robogod, that there is no extensive underground except where some enemies come from, and that any other islands are on the surface with other tribes of matoran (I still say tohunga in my head, but that tells you how long I've been in the fandom).Alternatively; neither Mata Nui nor the Makuta have a physical body per se, they're just spirits who can take physical form if they choose, like how the Makuta had all those parts flying about in the battle.What I mean when I said I'd make my own private canon is that I'm going to take the story and make it do what *I* want it to do, personalize it so to speak.
Sorry, no engineering skill tree today. Maybe tomrrow I will find the time to finish it.
Help mata nui. Save the planet.
>>24190666I really did not how to feel when the toa had to reactivate them to cleanse the island.
>>24191522Don't worry, it wasn't all in vain. It's not like Makuta took over and made the infected comet ball salesman turaga of metru nui.
>>24191651I laughed out loud
