The Makuta, one of the most powerful species in the Matoran Universe.
They were creators of Rahi, enforcers of order, the protectors and the bane of the Great Spirit Mata Nui.
At the beginnig, there were 100 of them. 85 male and 15 female ones. Yet just a handful of them is known ...
And here's my idea:
As I know of no list of all the Makuta, neither official nor inofficial, what about if we make one? All 100 Makuta, as a Brotherhood as it was at the beginnig, everyone of them with his or her own story. And of course accompanied by a MOC of the Makuta.
One person alone could'nt hope to achieve that in a reasonable amount of time, I guess, but as a community ... There's hope.
But of course we should follow at least some guidelines in both, storys and MOCs (and here is my personal opinion of what these guidelines could be):
we should follow the main G1 storyline at least to some extend, so
--> all Makuta except Miserix are dead or no longer Makuta (lost most of their powers and can't create Kraata and don't consist of antidermis any longer) by the time Teridax dies
--> 5 Makuta were hunted down, as they took Miserix' side when Teridax took over the brotherhood
--> 1 Makuta was killed by Toa Zaria, a Toa of Iron
--> 2 were kept alive by Teridax when he had taken over Mata Nui's body, to create Kraata, however, he killed them at some point before he died
--> wear Masks or have heads that look like masks (Makuta wear Kanohi)
--> use no gold pieces (Makuta as users of shadow should'nt have golden parts, gold is most often associated with the element light)
--> have a certain scale to them. They should be about G1 Titan sized. After all, they are very powerful beings, but should'nt vary too much in size from one to another.
--> be in their "original" form (humanoid, as I would guess they were created in that form)(meaning they should'nt be mutated or stuff like that)
--> have a "good design" (it's hard to describe that, but I'm sure you all know what I mean)
If you have additions to that or don't agree with some points - feel free to say so.
As this project is supposed to feature exactly 100 Makuta of which 85 are male and 15 female, also regarding the "official" Makuta, we should make a list of which Makuta we want to have and who builds them.
So you can reply to this topic naming the Makuta you are going to build/ allready have built as well as the Makuta's gender and I will put you on the list (If the Makuta is one from the "to be assigned" list, please let me know, too).
At first, I think revamps of all official Makuta except for Icarax and Teridax, as they are allready Titan sized, should be included (which does'nt mean, that Teridax and Icarax could'nt get a revamp if someone wants to do it). Also Miserix should get a humanoid form.
Which leaves us with this list so far:
- 1) revamped Teridax - Payinku

To be assigned:
- 0 Makuta loyal to Miserix and/or Mata Nui
this means, that your Makuta either died before Teridax declared the Plan or joined him (and died later)
I think everyone should be allowed to cover as much Makuta as he or she thinks he can accomplish. But let's start out with no more than 3 Makuta per person. Also have an eye on the guidelines (which may perhaps change a bit).
As every one of these Makuta MOCs is a, well, MOC on its own, they should be posted seperately from this topic to have a better overview (their names are nonetheless listed here)
Just name your entry to this project The Brotherhood of Makuta - "Name of your MOC"
Oh, and here's another idea to give all our MOCs some commonalities:
The first lines should be a quick overview over the Makuta:
Assigned region: none
Kanohi: Denkai, Great Mask of Heat
Then there follows the "main" picture of the Makuta preferably in some cool pose.
After that the story of the Makuta (Doesn't need to be there if he's an officialy known one like Teridax or Kojol)
Followed by his or her Equipment.
Then you can add more pictures like front and back view etc. as well as your personal commentary to your MOC.
If you want an example of what I would consider a perfect entry, have a look at my Makuta (linked above).
Please don't upload pictures of your finished MOCs on this topic and wait for an OK from me, before you imply that your MOCs are part of the Brotherhood Project. Otherwise it could get a bit difficult to get exactly 100 Makuta near the end.
There's also no need to link your MOCs below, as I will do so on the list, when they're finished.
If you haven't got a reply from me or if your MOC didn't show up on the list after two days, you're welcome to remind me. After all, it can happen, that I overlook someone.
