First topic message reminder :


Not the best-sounding message to send to you all, but it’s all I have.

Know that a virus is infecting Techna’s SCPU. Know that I can save the SCPU by downloading the virus into my own body. Know that in my last moments I am thinking of you, fellow Toa Techna.

Hunt down the hackers. Stop them, no matter what the cost. I know you are limited to imprisoning them because of the Toa Code in your hardware, but even so you can make their lives as hellish as possible. For me.

Good-bye.

* * *

I’m Torch, Toa of Plasma and deputy leader of the Toa Techna -- well, now leader, I suppose, as our former leader, a Toa of Electricity, Ion, died to save Techna’s mainframe. He downloaded a virus into his own body, and the massive misinformation overload killed him.

But I digress. If you are receiving this cybernet message via your brain implant, you are a denizen of Techna. Read on -- or listen on, it doesn’t matter -- for a review of our current crisis. Your help combating this threat will be invaluable.

And if you’re a hacker... well, be warned: We will find you.

* * *

HISTORY of TECHNA

Fifty years after our population of Spherus Magna, we finally gathered enough technical knowhow to examine the technology within the damaged Matoran Universe. Together with the Glatorian we copied detailed designs and brainstormed how to recreate them ourselves. I was a Matoran then, rather young compared to most; even so I helped construct the first working quantum computer.

I was also one of the first to suggest examining Matoran and Toa themselves. In doing so we discovered how to meld organic and mechanical parts together into one body. Ten years later we created the first synthetic Matoran, one of Fire.

A mere year after the first S-toran (as they were called), we (the Matoran, Toa, Glatorian, Agori, etc.) happened upon a grand plan: to take the Matoran Universe and recreate it into a grand spaceship. Some jumped for the idea; others didn’t. With what help we had, we worked for two centuries on the spaceship.

One thousand years afterward, now one hundred thousand years ago, we finished it, called “all aboard who’s going aboard,” and launched it into space. The starship was dubbed the Techna Nui.

In a large room within the spaceship Techna Nui is the city we call Techna.

During our time in space we have discovered how to create synthetic elements and Kanohi, how to create customized species, and how to link us all together using Techna’s SCPU (Supervisory Central Processing Unit), thus allowing hover-taxis to be driven automatically without crashing, and allowing the Techna Nui to fly itself through space. Now no one remembers who’s a Matoran and who’s an S-toran. I like it that way.

Just recently our SCPU was hacked. The Hackers want us floating dead in space, because they don’t believe we should be influencing the rest of the universe, insignificant as we are. The Technans believe we should continue onward. Some don’t know what to believe.

This is where you come in.

* * *

ABOUT TECHNA

There are three main districts in our space-city: the Science District, the Information District, and the Denizens District. Citizens can travel between the two as they please, via either hover-taxis or protodermis transport chutes. It’s impossible to enter offices without the proper IDF (Identification Frequency), which can be edited upon promotions and / or job switches.

All of Techna is defended by hovering Automated Defensive Robots, ADRs, armed with energy ball launchers. The robots have arms but no legs and are about as large as a Matoran. When an alarm sounds, ADRs will immediately converge on the area. So don’t try sneaking into places you can’t be. Also, various food business (as well as empty buildings reserved for food businesses) are scattered throughout both the Science and Information Districts.

SCIENCE DISTRICT

The largest of the Technan districts, the Science District’s offices deal exclusively with technological advances. Scientists work within closed chambers, working on advanced computer programs and new weapons, masks, and armor.

-Technology Tower:
This is the single manufacturing plant of Techna. It takes up the very center of the Science District, a large cubical base from which extends a skyscraper-like structure. Only scientists with the highest possible permissions may enter.

-Computer Knowledge Center:
Most of the programming for the SCPU is done within this small tower to the lower-left of the Technology Tower. Entry permissions are the same as those for the Technology Tower. It is believed the SCPU virus was uploaded from here; thus, security is doubled.

INFORMATION DISTRICT

The Information District includes many database libraries with information on everything from how to create a homemade chocolate cake to how to program in MCL (Matoran Code Language); not all libraries are accessible to the general public, however. There are also cyberprinters based here; many a Technan has gotten popular through publishing a book on the cybernet.

-Security and Defense Library:
This is accessible only to those accompanied by one of the Toa Techna. It includes a complete listing of all previous misdemeanors, including those committed before the Techna launched. It also includes complete schematics for Techna and its defenses.

HOUSING DISTRICT

This includes one hibernation chamber for every citizen. While in this hibernation chamber characters are plugged into a computer, which allows them to move about in a highly-realistic virtual bedroom they may customize any way they wish.

* * *

CHARACTER CREATION

This is the interesting part. See, it’s possible for citizens of Spherus Magna to contact us via a technology called “quantum entanglement”. Don’t know it? Look it up. We can create a body on the Techna Nui for someone and then, using quantum entanglement, download that someone’s personality into the body.

All one needs to do is fill out this form and send it to the Character Database:

Name:
Gender:
(Male / Female / None)
Species:
Kanohi:
(if applicable)
Powers:
(if applicable)
Implants:
(robotic arm, x-ray eyepiece, arm blaster, shoulder disk launcher, etc.)
Alignment:
(Hackers / Techna / Neutral)
Bio:


Note that one can’t be a Makuta, a Great Being, a member of Botar’s species, a Baterra, or any Rahi. They can, however, be a Glatorian, Toa, or any similar species; they can even create their own, within reason, of course. Kanohi not allowed are the Mask of Time, Mask of Life, Mask of Light, Mask of Shadow, Mask of Dimensional Gates, Mask of Creation, and Mask of Undeath. Certain implants may be accepted or rejected based on the approvers. Custom Kanohi and elements are allowed with approval.

Note that Techna has its own custom Kanohi and elements. In addition to the normal elements, Crystal, Nucleons (control over protons and neutrons), and Data (ability to adjust data and data flow, and act as a sentient database) also populate Techna.

Special Kanohi include the Mask of Engineering (enhances engineering abilities), Mask of Logic (speeds thought processes tenfold), Mask of Hyperspace (creates a hyperspace storage pocket), Mask of Remembrance (plants memories within other’s minds), and Mask of Time Perception (speeds up or slows down perception of time, including user).

All characters have a brain implant that allows them to communicate with others mentally, either via audio or text (like how you’re receiving this message).

This should be all the information you need to catch the hackers -- or, if you are a hacker, go to ground. It doesn’t matter who you are; know that the hackers aren’t winning this fight. At least, in my opinion.

Torch out.

* * *

GAMEPLAY and RULES

These rules are to be followed to the letter. The first two times you break the rules, you will get warnings, both in PMs and in edits to your offending RPG posts. The third and fourth times, your character will be involves in damaging mishaps that set back your roleplaying. The fifth time, you will be permanently banned from the RPG.

Remember to use IC (location goes here) before every in-character post, and OOC after every out-of-character post. For example:

IC (Science District):

“Some place,” remarked the newcomer to himself, gazing around at the buildings.

OOC: My character is open for interaction!


1. All forum rules apply.

2. No god-modding. “God-modding” is when you make your character do something ridiculously over-powered -- for example, calling an asteroid down from the heavens.

3. No auto-hitting. “Auto-hitting” is when you damage another character without giving the other player a chance to post, saying the character dodged.

4. Listen to the RPG staff. They are RPG staff for a reason. Thus you cannot disobey them without reason. The local RPG staff will be playing as the Toa Techna; you can recognize them that way.

5. Remember: You’re playing this to have fun!

Klax barely had time to speak before an unsuspected turn of events took place. Torch raised a fist, grinning while he did it, and Klax knew what he was about to do, but before he could even react, a Toa stepped out of nowhere, and the words, "You're out of line, Toa!" came from the mob of people. He heard the horrible noise of a breaking mask, and a groan of pain, along with running footsteps.

Klax realized that there was a Toa on the ground in front of him, clutching his head in pain. The Matoran made his way out of the crowd, wanting nothing to do with what had just happened.

Torch wanted to tell Gust what was going on. But, somehow, he couldn't. Couldn't, he asked himself, or wouldn't?

Either way, he submitted under the crushing weight of fear on his lungs. That same weight forced the words unwillingly out of his mouth, the thought processes behind each word coming to Torch a second after each left his mouth.

"I... I need to know where you are," came the words. For once, he passed over how Gust had called him "babe". "Tell me." His voice had an urgent edge to it, an edge that Torch didn't want. "I, well, need... Gust, I need help."

Think, darn it, THINK! Torch kept repeating to himself.

He was running now. "Which direction? North? -- south? -- east, west?"

THINK! roared his mind.

He took deep breaths -- no small feat considering he was running at top speed. Calm down. CALM DOWN.

And then he slowed. Calm down. Stopped.

He was free.

More deep breaths. "Gust?" he said. Calm. Down. "I... I still need help, but... Just be armed. Please. I don't -- I don't know what's wrong with me."

Gust broke out in a run and started making his way back towards the bakery. He spun, barely avoiding a Toa and calling out a "Sorry!"

Normally, that wouldn't have cut it, but Gust was easily the most liked of the Toa Techna for his laid-back and joking attitude, so he was let off the hook easy enough.

He drew his gun, which he had actually just bought, and ran towards Torch's position.

"I see you," he said into his link, making his way towards the Toa of Plasma.

There was the Toa Techna of Air, emerging from the crowd like a glimmer amidst shadow. Muscles that Torch hadn't even known were tense relaxed; his shoulders no longer felt so stiff, and his heart didn't beat as though it were compresssing a lifetime's worth into a single hour.

"Thank you," he said. "I... think it's passed now. But" -- and here his old self reemerged -- "don't you dare let down your guard. Here's what happened in a nutshell: I felt violent impulses, they weren't my own, and then my body carried them out without me controlling it. Hackers, maybe -- if so, I hope they rot in the worst hellhole in the universe." Torch looked around. "Darn it, I really ought to apologize to that Matoran I clobbered... no, wait, scratch that, I'll contact him now."

Talking helped keep the fear at bay. Gust was easygoing enough that he wouldn't mind. Now all Torch had to wait for was the minute he couldn't come up with another topic of conversation.

For now, though, he'd apologize to Klax. That might help dissapate some of the fear, too.

Activate communicator. Contact Klax.

Searching for Klax, replied the implant in a smooth voice that Torch somehow heard and yet didn't hear. A powerful thought, perhaps. One "Klax" found. Matoran. Contact?

Yes.

"That's the scary part. I don't know what happened."

Somewhere in the middle of that sentence the fear came back. Torch gulped, fought the rising tempo of his heartbeat in vain--

In a rush the commanding impulse came back. Gust. Dead. Now. At least, that was the gist of it; the Toa of Plasma caught no more as he spun, his fist flying toward Gust's face. He didn't even turn off his communicator, so powerful was this other force over his body.

What this other force didn't realize was that Torch had a powerful force of his own. That force rose up as his stubborn will, driving through the fear like a plow and slowing Torch's fist enough for Gust to easily evade it.

Gust moved as quickly as the wind he could control. Torch's punch flew wild; he had just enough time to register that his feet had left the ground before, a second later, he slammed hard into the metallic street of Techna and rolled over. The impact knocked the breath out of him. That, combined with the sudden rush of adrenaline, battered the fear back down to a managable size.

"Karzahni," he grunted, getting up slowly, making sure to adequately stretch his muscles as he rose. "That hurt. Gust, if you do that every time I go off, I won't have to worry anymore."

Fine? Keep dreaming. You'll never be fine after that.
You become more MINE by the moment, but you Gust, you DIFFER from the rest. I feel no FEAR from you. Never the less, even you will feel the cold touch of FEAR when I am through.
It's not REAL. The hackers have created an ILLUSION around you.
You MUST break free! DESTROY THE ILLUSION!
DESTROY IT ALL!

IC (Science District):

Somewhere in the back of Torch's mind, he felt the impulses rising again, scrabbling for a hold on his body. The fear rose again -- yet, what was there to fear? Nothing, realized Torch, letting the impulses slide off him. Naught remained of them save for the ideas they left, the mental version of footprints across his subconscious.

An illusion? Highly unlikely. It would be near-impossible for such an illusion to blanket not only Torch, but the rest of the Toa Techna, all skilled enough programmers and computer technicians to nullify most viruses. Not only that, the massive amount of information being fed into the SCPU would have immediately sent it into standby, and thus warned the Toa Techna.

Besides which, even if there were an illusion, why should he destroy it all? There was no sense in fighting that which was not there; and besides which, Torch might hurt real people doing so.

Another scrabbling. Torch's nervousness gave way to cold reason; though the impulses remained, they had no hold on him now. They were apart.

"Gust," he said to the Toa Techna of Air, "please continue to watch me vigilantly, but know that I'm making definite progress towards combating this... hack, or whatever-it-is. Ain't over yet, though." The Toa Techna of Plasma grimaced. "Not yet."

"Just keeping you focused."

IC Klax - Science District - Alleyway:

Klax walked about, attempting to find a way out of the dark maze he had accidentally wandered into without thought. He couldn't retrace his steps, because he had no recollection of even walking into the alley. "There's gotta be an exit somewhere, and when I find it, I'm writing a complaint about this weird maze between buildings," the Matoran said, walking onward around corners and through more alleys.

Sadly, he was only driving himself deeper into the maze, but he did not realize it. He wasn't equipped to face the problem, either, as he didn't have a mask of engineering, or a visual implant to aid him in his escape, so he was stuck to wander it, and hopefully find an exit soon.

"How do you 'hack' a living being?"

IC (Science District):

"Like Gust said," Torch explained, "it's complicated. But I can give you a brief overview."

Taking a deep breath, the Toa of Plasma thought back to the brain-imprints he'd received based on technology. Theoretically, these imprints lasted a lifetime. In practice, they were as liable to fade away as any memory. "See, each Technan's brain implant carries a special ID; however, these IDs aren't broadcast in any way. Rather, they're stored away within the implant, affecting other, lesser ID codes that determine permissions. To get to the main ID a hacker would have to get a program into the SCPU that orders -- not asks -- a user's brain implant for its ID.

"And what's more, there's a built-in scrambler that mutilates the whole ID if any copies of it leave the implant: a security measure that we had to include before anyone agreed to launch the Techna Nui. The hacker would somehow have to unscramble the ID, which would undoubtedly take a very, very long time, seeing as the ID could be lengthened or shortened, but always completely randomized. Heck, I don't even know if these IDs use numbers, letters, or both." Torch looked over the straw-hat Toa and realized something: "Hey, I didn't catch your name."

"What." Akren said, having no knowledge of such things, by virtue of not falling within the groups stated, and being pretty much a normal toa. Well, biologically normal, anyway.

"Name's Akren, Akren Tokaillo. Nice to meet you, mate." the straw hat-clad toa said with a friendly grin, extending a hand in greeting.
