Do we get to choose a type of Matoran right away? (e.g. Medic, Ranger, etc.)
Or do we have to earn points to choose?

Question: How many matoran can we make? Could we have multiple characters that we can use individually on a mission? I have two already made and I really want both of them to be in this.If I understood correctly, these mission mocs are going to include other matoran, so it makes sense to me. Anyway, let me know what you think.Thanks.

Also, couldn't we invite more people, especially people like Chronos Omega and others? Just suggesting.

Good idea, but I'd doubt they'd oblige.

Only one can be your main character. A side character could probably appear as often as you want, though.

I have a question regarding my, I guess, "representative MOC" for this RPG. If I were to make a Le-Matoran, can I have him be part of the North faction? Or does he have to ally himself with the South? I know it seems like a dumb question, but I'm looking for some clarification.

That's actually a good question. The answer is no. Just make a good backstory as to why he would be in the North ;)!

At the moment, you only need one Matoran. I would wait to use any of them for any future missions.

The theme of my character (currently under construction) is that he is a traveling merchant who is trying to avoid conflict. He has a particular attribute that would make him desirable for all three factions; however, he is trying to avoid them. Part of his story is that he was captured by a faction and forced to enlist in their military; however, he eventually escaped. He did not finish his combat training, so he is not as battle-hardened as other members of his class (one of his major weaknesses). I would like to list his faction as "Formerly [insert faction here]." Is this okay?

I'm not sure. My original character concept was a mercenary that floated through the factions, but they suggested that I have her work for only one faction, even though she retains her original role. You could do something like that for your character.

Perhaps he gives supplies and discounts to people of the region(s) of his preferred faction. Maybe occasionally doing favors for the faction if the circumstances are right.

Hi guys. My problem is that I have two character concepts that I want to play equally, and if we're not allowing multiple characters each, I need help deciding.

First up is Taotu, a young, but wise Ga-Matoran. Healer class, with the catch that she's an empathic healer, so will take on another's pain to heal them. She is devoted to the three virtues.

Second is Kanapa. Av-Matoran. Flirtatious, hedonistic and arrogant, Kanapa was a famous musician and performer before the war, and now uses his flamboyant but powerful Light powers to turn the tide of battle... if he feels like it.

I'd rather have Kanapa, but I'm aware that there aren't many Healers so far, so Taotu might be better for you guys. Which should I go for?

Hmm, that is hard. Which faction do you want? It seems the first should be a southern and the second should be a northern. I like the first one I think.

I'm wondering how they work in the grand scheme of things, such as missions and interactions with other characters. Are they essentially the same as the major characters, or must they be supporting characters for the major ones? I understand that the major characters essentially represent the builder. Other than that, I'm not certain how they are differentiated.

You realise TF2's heavy is the same, right? Have a look at the TF2 comics where he's portrayed. The Heavy is one of the most intelligent characters. A laconic (strong and silent) type who likes to get the job done and makes himself out to be less intelligent than he really is. In battle, he's wielding real power and he knows it, but you have to be cunning in order to be in the right place at the right time with a weapon like his.

Technically, for now, you're only supposed to have one main Matoran. If you have made any others, I would suggest saving them for any missions that require more Matoran.

Ok thanks for replying.

A few more questions but these are centered more around the lore of Nambu Nui:

1. Are there any Toa? I would assume not as they probably would never let this happen but just thought I'd ask. And actually, the idea of the Toa splitting and fighting amongst one another sounds like it could be very cool and it could play up the corruptness of Nambu Nui.

2. Which Wahi or Nambu are in each faction? I'd be happy to help make a map of Nambu Nui to help with this if you'd like.

3. How many years has the conflict been happening? If the conflict is just beginning it could open a lot of possibilities for the story to progress as the game goes on but if it has been going on for quite some time, the game will most likely continue on the same path and could possibly be more likely to die out sooner. Hope that made sense.

Anyway, I thought I had other questions but either I didn't or I don't remember them...

Thanks for asking these questions! I would be happy to answer them! :D

1. There are absolutely zero toa in the story so far. They will probably be added later down the line. (I actually have an idea for them but we wont implement them just yet.

2. These Nambu belong to the following.

North:
Ta Nambu
Po Nambu
Onu Nambu
Ga Nambu
Ko Nambu

South:

Le Nambu

Bandits:
Dotted around in hidden places in each district. (especially in hidden caves in Onu-Nambu.)

I didn't think there would be Toa but no harm in asking right?

Wow, the South seems pretty much outgunned. Do you have a general shape in mind for what the island should look like?

That is a great question, actually. I think maybe somewhere down the road when a faction gets a lot of participants we could have some sort of event (?) between two leaders of specified factions. Maybe the winner could take something (?) Eh, I'll talk with them in the staff group.

It's OK =P it mostly made sense. We wouldn't want it to be too confusing like in LOM BUT, if all the Nambu were assigned to a builder in their respective faction, a MOC-off could be held between the attacker and the owner where the winner takes the Nambu for his/her faction.

It would be really cool if the MOC-off were up to the popular vote (i.e. no judges). Still even that might get confusing...

I am really interested to see how people create environments for these stories. I have never seen anyone try to recreate an environment out of technic parts. the scale is just too large, at least to me. What are people doing about that, because I sure don't know what to do.
I also am against the idea of toa being introduced because the entire Bionicle franchise was based off the toa. I think we need to give the little guys a chance to do something for a change. POWA TO DA LITTLE PEOPLE!!! Anyway. I agree that the less complex this thing is, the more people will want to be a part of it. Good luck figuring this all out though!

Yeah that will definitely be difficult but I think it will be a fun challenging part of the game. Who says the environment has to be Technic? It's all LEGO elements. Obviously, nobody would play the Toa but it would be interesting if they were split up and fighting against each other. But I agree, the Matoran should be the main characters.

Eh, it's very simple actually. If you're willing to learn ;).

It's a great program, once you learn how to use it, and it's free.

It can do so much, really, it can do a TON of things.

For the one who does not understand acronyms, what does GIMP stand for?

EDIT:Just looked it up. Woah, that might be a little out of my league! Can I change backgrounds with this program?

It is very similar to photoshop so I think you can change backgrounds but I'm not sure as I've never tried.

So I was reading the faction descriptions, and I am wondering if my interpretation of the factions is correct.

So, the North is controlled by a class of aristocrats who wish nothing more but to maintain their positions of power by seizing complete control of the island. The aristocrats control all regions except Le Nambu. The description appears to imply that the aristocrats maintain control through high stringency. Would it be appropriate to describe the Northern faction as militant? If so, what color is their military uniform? It would help with the creation of some future characters.

The South is a (small?) group of rebels assembled by those who both despise life under aristocratic rule and are courageous enough to oppose the aristocrats. They are comprised mostly of the downtrodden lower class and those whom sympathize with them.

The Bandits oppose both ways of life. This is rather confusing to me, seeing that the South wants naught but equality. The only logical way I've been able to explain this is that they are an anti-establishment group whom oppose government rule, period. Is this safe to assume?

One last question, how is Nambu Nui divided? Where are the general locations for each region (i.e. North, South, East, West, central, etc.)?

Thanks in advance!

That is pretty much correct. As for the North's military uniform's color, there really is no specific color, though I would recommend using a little bit of black, as that is the main color of Rotu, the faction leader. :)

According to the map I made, the six elementall-affiliated regions of Nambu Nui placed similar to Metru Nui/Mata Nui, although only half of those regions have a notable population, which consists of Matoran of many different elemental types in each region.

How would you describe the cultures of the major groups of Matoran (Po, Onu, Le, etc.)?

Ta-Nambu is primarily uninhabited, save for a few political exiles who have a nomadic lifestyle within the Nambu.

Ga-Nambu is the true hub of the North, with strengths in fishing, shipbuilding, and trading. Mostly inhabited by poorer Matoran, but these Matoran are mostly accustomed to their lot and see the North as their main giver of their livelihood. They might switch their cause to the South in the future (which will require a renaming of the faction.)

Le-Nambu, as a heavily forested region, is (or was) a center for hunting and woodcutting, with the wood being sent to the shipbuilding ports in Ga-Nambu in exchange for Po-Nambu minerals. The people there are well-educated, but still humble and frugal, despising the aristocrats of Onu-Nambu who have their hold on the Northern government.

Po-Nambu is largely uninhabitable, the only true settlement there is a huge camp of slaves and political prisoners who mine for precious minerals in the Den of the Dead.

Onu-Nambu is the home of the those who exercize their minds more than their bodies -- the philosophers, tax-gatherers and historians. However, it is most notably the home of the aristrocrats who rule the island, who have a disdain for the "lower" Matoran of other Nambus. Some of the learned and calculating Matoran here have become the heads of the bandit web of the island.

Ko-Nambu does not have a major habitation, but it is considered a region for winter sport. Bandits have a significant presence in this region, and this region may be the first to be completely ruled by the Bandits.

This question is probably best answered by the faction leaders. What ranking system(s), if any, does each faction use? For example, one based on the US military's system would include ranks such as Private, Specialist, Sergeant, Lieutenant, etc. One based upon the Roman Legion's system would include ranks such as Munifex (private), Evocati (veterans), Centurions (captains), Legates (lieutenants), etc. Of course, fictional systems would be pretty neat too (seeing how removed the Matoran culture is from our own).

Not until we've reached a point in the story where a large amount of faction inhabitants (and/or members) are displeased with their faction's leader.

It'll depend on how the "war" between the faction leaders plays out as well.

It would be interesting to see how an internal power struggle would play out, but it's reasonable to think that this may be a bit much at this time. The war has just begun after all.

I always imagined them as a sort of mishmash of all kinds of matoran. Perhaps there are fewer Onu Matoran and a bit more Le Matoran though. Anyways, I was wondering if they had any sort of uniform or motif (much like how the Northern military's attire includes a lot of black).

Le-Matoran compose most of the South's army. But, after three Nambus became virtually uninhabitable, there would have been a large influx of those Matoran into the more populous Nambus. In partical, the Ta-Matoran would be a main presence in the bordering Nambu, and the Ta-Matoran are some of the most passionate of the Southerners. Other members of the six main types have a good showing in the South's armies, but it's mostly Le-Matoran with a decent chunk of Ta-Matoran.

I'm curious as to what the "hospitable territories" are like. It appears to be a relatively general term which could apply to other territories on the map such as the forests in Le Nambu, unless these forests are too thick and dangerous to be habitable. If that's the case, then wouldn't they fall under "inhospitable territory"? These labels are a bit confusing in this regard.

The jungles of Le-Nambu, while difficult to live in, are incredibly supporting of life, both Rahi and Matoran. In the inhospitable territories, the environment itself is harmful to Matoran -- Ta-Nambu and Po-Nambu are both incredibly hot and dry, and Ko-Metru is incredibly cold.

Where my confusion lies is that there are both "hospitable territories" and habitable forests labeled separately from one another. Logically speaking, anything labeled differently from hospitable territories can be assumed inhospitable and vice versa unless there is a specific geographical/ecological attribute which makes them distinct from other presumably-habitable regions. Sorry if my numerous questions are bothersome; I just wish to thoroughly understand the world you all are trying to create. ^_^'

Ah, I see. By "hopsitable territory" in that sense, I meant things more in the sense of grassland or plains, areas without a lot of geographical content but that were livable.
