Orrrr I'm giving you a teaser just to DRIVE YOU MAD WITH SUSPENSE!
“Let’s just put the guns down,” Voltex said. “One of you is a Traitor... that’s fine. We can work past it.”
“The guard,” Pupwa said.
“The guard,” the Le-Matoran repeated. “At the hub of motors, when you met with the Automaton. Do you remember?”
“Yeah,” Voltex said slowly, remembering the irritable Matoran that had nearly refused him entry. “Wasn’t the greatest service I’ve ever received.”
“It was me,” said Pupwa. “I am the guard.”
“You were the... but I thought you were from BZ-Koro...” Voltex said, confused.
The Le-Matoran shook his head. “Was lying – cover story. I work for the White Council for much money, very profitable. Take out targets, hired for Xaeraz to kill.”
“You’re not making any sense,” Voltex said.
“The White Council hired him to kill Xaeraz,” Zakaro translated, his gaze fixed on Pupwa’s.
Pupwa nodded. “Supposed to kill when drawn out, but won’t happen. You do it, Voltex.”
“Wait,” Voltex said, realizing what was about to happen. “Don’t shoot! Don’t shoot each other!”
Before either of the Matoran could fire, the door was slammed open, revealing the familiar form of Voxumo. Voltex sagged in relief, gesturing towards Zakaro and Pupwa. “Thank Tohu you’re here! They’re about to kill each other!”
The Ko-Matoran glanced from Zakaro to Pupwa and then swung the scythe.

BZ-METRU, FEB. 11 – Notorious criminal mastermind “Xaeraz” escaped from custody late last night after being caught last week for vandalizing the BZ-Metru Bank and being arrested on a number of charges including first degree murder and suspected terrorism. Xaeraz levelled the entire villain containment centre in the Ga-Metru, freeing thousands of criminals in the process. Reports are estimating that forty guards were killed and an additional sixty more were injured.
The Turaga issued a statement earlier this morning reminding Matoran to report any sightings of Xaeraz to the Vahki enforcers and Metru Police Force, with additional warnings to stay away from the wanted criminal.
BZ-METRU, FEB. 12 – In response to the recent increase in terrorist activity and the escape of wanted criminal Xaeraz, the Metru-Nui Turaga have announced a news conference to be given on the island town of BZ-Koro in three days time to address the issues of security that are plaguing the country.
BZ-METRU, FEB. 13 – Late last night, a message was discovered scrawled onto the walls of the Coliseum, warning the Turaga of Metru-Nui to cancel the upcoming address in BZ-Koro. Three witnesses were interrogated regarding the responsible party’s identity, but all three died of unknown causes before questioning could be completed.
The Turaga have stated that the message will have no effect on the timing of the speech, although it was later announced that only two of the previous six Turaga announced to be attending will be present at the conference hall on Saturday.
“Still looking at those scraps of paper?”
The Matoran glanced up from the numerous paper cuttings strewn across the table of the cafe, located right next to the window. Grimacing, he offered the seat across from him to the newcomer, who accepted it.
“Voltex, you’re worrying about nothing,” the newcomer (a Matoran of Lightning) said. “Nothing is going to happen at this conference.”
“You don’t know that, Blade.” Voltex said absently, still inspecting the scraps of various articles. “I met Xaeraz once... it was terrifying.”
“The security at the conference is going to be top of the line, though,” Blade said.
“Security all over the country is top-notch right now and he’s still finding ways to blow up our biggest prisons,” Voltex said, pointing towards a clip detailing the destruction of a series of holding cells in Ko-Metru three weeks prior.
Blade grimaced before changing the subject. “Did you accept that application to the Metru-Nui Police Force?”
“Of course not,” Voltex said, laughing nervously as he adjusted his Volitak.
“But gravity! That’d be so useful for law enforcement!” Blade exclaimed in mock surprise.
“So is lightning,” Voltex noted, “but you didn’t accept it either.”
As Blade mumbled something about Toa being lame under his breath, a Matoran cloaked all in black stepped up beside them. Flinching, Voltex scrambled to gather the newspapers, dumping them all unceremoniously into the pack sitting beside him on the floor. The cloaked Matoran said nothing, instead handing two sealed envelopes to the seated Matoran and then vanishing back into the crowd.
“What are these?” Blade asked.
“Must be an invitation of some sort,” Voltex said, “or we’re the targets of an assassination.”
“...should we just leave them?” Blade asked, before realizing that Voltex was already opening his. “Voltex! What if they’re poisoned?!”
“Oops,” the other Matoran said, not caring at all. “They are invitations, actually. To... the conference....”
Voltex sighed and flopped back into his seat as Blade tossed his unopened envelope back onto the table. Their gazes met and Voltex sighed again. “Should we go?”
“It’s dangerous to refuse the wishes of the Turaga,” Blade said. “They aren’t the most benevolent of rulers.”
“Then it’s settled,” Voltex said, standing. “Let’s go to that conference and die.”
The two stood to their feet and shook hands before exiting the cafe and heading their separate ways.
There you go - what was the point of this teaser, you ask? Merely to announce the title of the epic, which should release next week:
Bionicle Mafia Uprising: Book 1 - Isolation
Yes, some of you will die in the story.
I promise nothing with regards to personalities, or deaths, or really anything beyond using you as a character - but I do promise that there are only 6 spots left (all spots taken now). (yes i took a spot for me go away)
Sign up in the comments if interested.
I plan to have them facing realistic scenarios, so that could include being lost, being left behind on a trip, losing pieces, etc. No prior reading or knowledge would be necessary, as it's designed to be standalone.
Then he says that a lot of the posts are like the speech Darth Sidious made to the Senate in Star Wars Episode III, and the church in Dishonored (I haven't played this, so I dunno if this part is correct).
I asked him why and he says this:
It sounds like they are proclaiming themselves as being this 'amazing' group that will help everyone, while in reality it never lives up to that and often contains a certain level of corruption....
That's a pretty funny description to give to the clubs on a website for a children's toy, don't you think?
What a Link
We're not teaching university science classes here, we're playing a text based fighting game where the objective is to beat your opponents into oblivion.
Get back in your grave, you.
*Slaps with tombstone*
Also, what pay are you gonna get as iBrow's slave?
Chro suddenly developed arachnophobia.
explain it with a convoluted quadruple negative.
Although everyone should go sign up for that game now.
And tell your friends.
And your moms.
Maybe not that last bit.
Poor Lhikan. Demoted from riding on top of an awesome Rahi to being packed in with a bunch of batteries as an afterthought.
However, this does not mean we no longer want to kill the rest of you for evading death. In fact, we would like to destroy you all, because we feel like it and we're the bad guys, the latter of which we only just realised.
...You guys didn't realize we were the villains all along?
You thought I was a good guy? ? ?
MY NAME IS RIGHT THERE
None of us are actually competent. We run around like headless chickens, if headless chickens were capable of wielding assault rifles and broadswords.
I'm gonna bluff you guys so hard you won't even know that I'm bluffing
Or maybe you will
It'll be a quadruple bluff
It's linked to Voltex's everlasting, endless fury.
How is Chro's arms still on fire though? I bet Burnmad has something to do with it.
