Technology (BZPRPG III)
Technology describes advanced equipment, typically manufactured through some industrial process. There are two main categories of technology in the BZPRPG III: Foreign Tech and Native Tech.
Foreign Tech, called such because it typically originates from outside of Mata Nui, ranges from crude fireams to hyper-advanced electronics. In character creation, these items must be pre-approved by staff before playing. Characters of certain species hailing from outside of Mata Nui can start out with foreign tech, although all characters can use foreign tech if won fairly from another character in combat.
Foreign tech distribution by species:
- Skakdi: One FT item (Two on Zakaz)
- Vortixx: Two FT items
- Lesterin: One FT item or Kanohi (2 FT items or One FT item and one Kanohi)
Native Tech describes commonly available technological items that are mass-produced on Mata Nui, particularly in the economic boom following Makuta's defeat.
