I'm not sure I want to be appoining moderators just yet. After our first contest, I may offer that as a prize :) I'm expecting that the more popular giant builders on here WON'T necessarily be the best at matoran.

Maybe who has the most cute rahi/matoran/agori?
under 4" and maybe a piece limit, that could either be a large quantity or a small quantity.

Here is a quickly made one: http://s1036.photobucket.com/albums/a442/swatdem23/Matoran/?action=view&current=Matoran4.jpg I don't care if you want it or not,use it if you like, but I just thought might look better than just a matoran. :)

I think ToaTiome's Hahli Stars is great, but it doesn't really give the right message. This isn't a Stars group. Nightmare King already made that. I only allow star versions of MOCs.

If you have the time though, maybe find/make a picture of the Isle of Thorns itself? It's c-shaped, with a saltwater lake in the middle, after the central part of it was removed. It has a main city, but I've never said where, and a lot of it is either beach or woodland.

So, it kinda wraps in a circle, but has a chunk ripped out on it side?

Yep. The chunk is Korrothis. Gringat made the whole region airborne. It can dock in Lake Silgarn when it needs to, too.

You know what, now I can't help but think how cool it would b if there was a huge gateway, or something. I guess it depends on how wide it is though. Would you rather have a top-down view, like the Mata-Nui Island, or something else?

When Korrothis rose into the sky, they had to take Ga-Korroth with them. That includes a port, so, yes, it's connected to the sea. Except at low tide.

Hey Gringat, I was having an idea for the Isle; Do you think that there could be some sort of Black Market located in subterrainian Tunnels that run throughout the Planet where crimelords and cut-thoats live and die.

Whoa, that was some imagry o.o, but anyway, i was thinking that would be a way for most people (like the BARON) to get tech (his arm, for example). Also could be the source of epic conflict/story development :D! (I was Mainly thinking of some sort of Blackmarket-Lord kinda thing for the BARON, cause then his name would make sense XD)

Not -underground- as such. A black market could thrive on the Isle of Thorns anyway though. The amount of immigrants it has, there is a lot of room for crime and smuggling across the sea to take place. Not all of the matoran there are good guys.

As for the underground caves, the Shadowcaverns run underneath the Isle. There's no chance of underground smuggling, since the Ak-Matoran and the Ja'kat under there are at war: A war that is bubbling up to the surface not Korrothis is airborne. Look at Phana for more info: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/195861

Mmkay, i see. So maybe some smuggling between Korrothis and the Isle? Or maybe just within the Isle itself; Either way, could i put "Baron of Crime" as his status? Plus, it would make some major drama if we do a BRC Topic here with a kinda Oral History of the Thorns (GREAT TITLE!!).

The Isle of Thorns and Poliaz are both really close to each other, and right at the lowest tip of the Northern Continent, between there, Stelt and the north coast of the southern continent. If any smuggling takes place, it's likely that Stelt is involved (Dark Brotherhood place)

He wasn't really made for going into a story but I have Phirset here: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/169433
Do you want him in the story or do I just make another? If so what role should he take??..


He looks fine for the story, although note that, as a turaga, he'll be able to use his mask to see in the dark.

I haven't written this up yet, but the starting role for all the characters coming in is that they are either visiting or coming to live on the Isle. Perhaps Phirset is coming to speak to the Isle's council: They have no turaga here.

Sounds good, maybe he could be finding a refuge because the last island that he lived on was swallowed up by some sort of dark force or something...

So yeah... just some thoughts.

I'm doing it now, he can be a turaga right? Any ideas where his homeland could be?


Turaga are matoran. Toa are as well, but there's a height restriction ^^;

On RACE, put Turaga in brackets. And his mask would not be powerless.

so then can i have a curious matoran that journeyed into the shadow caverns and found a fragment of a toa stone that made him a sort of "missing-link" ?like this:

NAME: Petrov
RACE: Matoran/toa
ELEMENT: Sonics
HOMELAND: Poliaz
KANOHI: corrupt mask of Melodeath(noble): when the mask power is used it will kill a target by sending very loud, very quick, violent waves of sound into them, however as a noble mask it only distorts the targets senses, making sight seem blurred and slow, noise deep, ect.
bio would be added later, and just because he wears a corrupt mask doesnt mean he`s evil ;)

Him coming from Poliaz is fine, but If he comes up from the shadowcaverns then he can't arrive with the other matoran on the boat. Then again, you know how a BRC branch works, by now XD

Put him in the Character Bin, and write the bio. :)

Can I make a couple small changes to Phirset and maybe make a bionicle that he has tamed and can now ride around on? I was home a bit today and already got Turaga Phirset looking better, I just thought it would be cool for him to have a pet or something that he managed to save from his home land...


If you can write up the beast's bio in the character bin, then I will try and inject him/her/it into the story as soon as possible.
