Welcome to Round 2!

After a long delay with the judging we a back and rolling.

(Intense music)

The match has begun.

The members of the carbon tribe rush down the field in a frenzy to beat the ta-koro team.

Suddenly! A wild Rahi appears!

Your task for this round is to build a MEDIUM sized rahi. Not too big or too small. It should be the appropriate size for one Toa to be able to fight and not be a one sided battle.


Your element for this round is!

Arsenic!

Um, did I mispell my name in the entry? My name is Ziontyro, not Ziontyco. I would appreciate it if you would spell it correctly in the future. Still it's no big deal. I'm glad that I got through into the next round.

Since people will be asking... color schemes!
Arsenic comes in three colors: metallic grey, black, and yellow.
Grey arsenic is the most common, but let's be honest, after a bunch of all-black round one MOCs, we need some color to spice it up.
I'm probably not the most qualified person to give info about elements, but I'll try. Hopefully Nat will show up and give us some better info, LOL.

In addition, white could represent arsenic oxide.

I've taken some time to compile some arsenic-related information for everyone. Hopefully this helps during your builds!

My Toa of Arsenic, Anorex:
http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/162508

Some of the University of Nottingham's PEriodic Videos about Arsenic:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a2AbKwAvyos
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rQ8jHM8QhU8

Arsenic is close to "Gunmetal" in shade, but can be lighter, even white. Arsenical ores can be green, yellow and orange, and Realgar (Arsenic Sulphite) can form into beautiful deep red crystals, so I know I'm going to be using a lot of my trans-red bohrok eyes in mine!

Arsenic burns. The flames are usually pinkish.
It is also sometimes mixed into fireworks to make "Red Explosive".

As for how to focus on the element, arsenic is deadly poisonous because it can replace phoshorous in the body and stop cells from functioning. In the past it has been used as a herbicide, pesticide, rat poison and in assassinations. Arsenic is used in some forms of lead shot for old fashioned guns, and the Victorians used Copper arsenite as a green dye in wallpaper. It also has applications in making electrical components.

I haven't quoted myself anywhere. What are you guys talking about?

Also Keetorange should be perfectly fine. Realgar (As4S4) comes in a ruby red crystalline form and a keetorange/yellow powdery form. It's a common ore for the metal. Look it up on google images.

Wow i on 15th well i need to step up my game aka MOCing with less brain power.
Plus i bet the next round is going to be the most over use of all Toa and i just wish the Glatorian and Agori get more love.

I have to say I'm rather disappointed with this topic, but only because the color scheme for arsenic is sop similar to fluorine (which was last year's round 2 element). However, I am happy to make a Rahi that isn't midget-sized. I've been planning something original.

Anyway, complaining here isn't going to get Caleb's attention- if he hasn't judged it's quite unlikely that he has looked into the group at all. I've tried Skype to no avail. Ill try one more attempt to contact him, then I suggest you continue on to round 3 without his scores, Phos.
