Extermination is Coming


Release Date! (BZP Story Update) + PREVIEW

Posted by Strange Festive Voltex , in BZP Library Dec 11 2014 · 165 views

A Matoran with sleek black and silver armor sat at a wooden desk, staring at the lit computer screen. Checking behind him to make sure that the door was shut, he let out a small sigh and turned back to the screen, tapping the microphone perched beside the keyboard to make sure that it was functional. Satisfied, he opened his mouth and began to speak.
“Journal entry one-zero-one,” he said. “Let’s recap.”


He blinked, and then he and Blade were sitting across from each other at a desk in an office, Voltex having evidently tried a futile attempt to bring the computer terminal online.

“Blade, there’s... something I need to tell you,” he said slowly, tapping the underside of the desk nervously. The words seemed to leave him of their own accord.

“What is it?” Blade asked.

“I’m the Detective,” Voltex started, causing Blade to burst into a smile that seemed disturbingly sinister.

“Don’t worry about it,” the Vo-Matoran interrupted, waving his hand dismissively. “I’ve suspected that you were the Detective ever since we found your equipment.”

“No, it’s not that,” Voltex muttered, fiddling with the Repulsor Arm. “It’s... Xaeraz made me the Detective for a reason, Blade.”

The Vo-Matoran’s gaze narrowed. “And what are you ‘truly doing’, Tex?”

He took a deep breath, inwardly battling against the words that were preparing to tumble out of his mouth - he failed, and continued to speak. “I work for the White Council.”

That’s not true though, he thought blearily. What’s happening?

“You must be lying,” Blade breathed, his mouth hanging open. “How much do you know?”

His throat was dry.

“I-” Voltex coughed before speaking again, unable to stop himself. “They wanted to get rid of all of their enemies in one stroke, Blade. Anyone that could pose a threat to their rule, eliminated all at once.”

Blade shot up and Voltex just barely held back a flinch as the Vo-Matoran stalked towards him, shoving his finger into the Ba-Matoran’s chest and causing Voltex to stumble back.
“You disgust me,” Blade snarled, pushing him to the floor, his voice laced with lethal sarcasm. “Why are you here, Tex?”


Voltex shook his head wearily. “I don’t really care what you decide to do, Burnmad. I’m not even certain that I can lead a war anymore. Too many Matoran are dying on my account - dying at my command. How many did you lose just to reach me?”

“We… aren’t entirely sure,” Burnmad said.
“No? Because Portalfig gave me the numbers before he left,” the Ba-Matoran repled. “He said you’re missing nearly fifty. Almost half a hundred Matoran lost in an attempt to contact me. I’m not so sure that can be counted as a victory, Burnmad - or that it should have been done at all.”


“In a few hours, I leave to lead a small team of only three Matoran, including myself, to try and infiltrate the Coliseum. If we are successful, we may be able to win this war within the week. If we are not… well, I doubt I shall survive to see another sunrise."

Extermination begins TOMORROW, DECEMBER 12TH.

Here's how it's gonna work:

Dec. 12 - Prologue releases
Dec. 19 - Chapter 1 releases
Dec. 26 - we're all busy, NOTHING RELEASED
Jan. 2 - i'm away visiting family, NOTHING RELEASED
Jan. 9 - Chapter 2 releases

After the release of Chapter 2, it'll be a weekly thing; every Friday a new chapter shall be released. It's just those two weeks where nothing shall be seen.
Don't worry though, Chapter 2 will be a fun chapter to come back on.


Regarding Raffles

Posted by Strange Festive Voltex , in BZPower Dec 10 2014 · 93 views

When there's more than one prize (for simplicity, let's say there are two) in a raffle... could the same member theoretically win every prize in that raffle?
That'd be some seriously miraculous number crunching

RUMOR: Amiibo Discontinued (Smash Files 65)

Posted by Strange Festive Voltex , in Smash Files Dec 07 2014 · 218 views

Not all Amiibo, mind you. But three in particular. Those three are the Wii Fit Trainer, Villager, and Marth - rumors circulate the internet hinting that these three might be gone from shelves forever once the current stock is out. Now, had I been thinking, they would have been the first three I purchased; however, I was not thinking, and so only Wii Fit Trainer was included in my first set. That said, at the first sound of shortages, I rushed online to look for both Marth and Villager.

I might never get the GCN adapter, but if my goal is to collect every Smash Amiibo, then I need to be on the top of my game. I managed to find Villager and Marth on ebay for decent prices (read: no more than two dollars above regular, before shipping), and they arrived yesterday alongside Kirby and Fox (I bought the latter two from a retail site though). So, this situation is obviously frustrating; I don't understand why Nintendo wouldn't even stock enough Amiibo figures and GCN adapters to at least last through the end of the year.


It'll be money back in my pocket when I return my GCN controller

Outline Revisions! (BZP STORY UPDATE)

Posted by Strange Festive Voltex , in BZP Library Dec 04 2014 · 152 views

Posted Image

So I spent a lot of tonight revising the outline for Extermination, mainly with the second half of the epic, and I must say, the odds are not in anyone's favor with regards to survival.

That cast of 40+ characters?

At this point in time, a grand total of not nearly as many as you think will survive. The final battle in particular is rather... bloody, to say the least.

I do believe that this will be the final draft of the outline; as far as actually writing it goes, I'm nearly finished Chapter 3, and anticipate that I shall be able to have as far as Chapter 5 finished by the end of this weekend.

Also, please vote for Entry 5 here!

Oh man that thing is beautiful. Too bad it's over $500... I don't have enough to spend that much on it. :(


Go and vote!

Posted by Strange Festive Voltex , in BZPower Dec 02 2014 · 92 views

The new youtube banner contest voting has opened, so you should all go and vote! Of course, I must advise that voting Entry 5 would be the wisest option, but really, whatever wins is going to be plastered across social media, so... select whichever entry you think represents both Bionicle and BZPower best.


HUNTED (BZP Story Preview!)

Posted by Strange Festive Voltex , in BZP Library Nov 28 2014 · 163 views

The following is an excerpt from EXTERMINATION:

He was kicked onto his back by the figure, towering above him. The Ba-Matoran raised his ruined right arm to shield himself, as a pair of glowing red eyes and the rough outline of a Kanohi Mask appeared in the shadows billowing out from the figure’s cloak.

“Who are you?” Voltex asked weakly, coughing. “Who… sent you… here?”

“I am the Shadow,” the figure said, taking aim even as Voltex desperately tried to pull his broken body out of harm’s way, “and I was sent to restore order.”


“White Council… rebellions… always making a mess of the universe.” The figure said darkly. “A mess that I’ve got to clean up. Your greatest fear… you truly believe that you are the center of the universe? That you alone may throw this universe out of balance? Do you believe that so many should fall at your command?”

Voltex’s head hit the ground hard as he collapsed, weak and out of breath.
“As if they had never existed.” The figure said, pointing the rust cannon right at him. “Your punishment, then, is to no longer exist.”


The above is but a small portion of a scene that I've had in my head for a long time - and that I just finished writing. We'll see if the final product stands up in the eyes of you readers, but I like to think that it's a pretty big moment.

And perhaps... it might be exactly what you don't expect?

So Walmart.ca has the Gamecube controller adapter back in stock! Hurray!

...but they don't accept Paypal and I lack a credit card. Back to the drawing board.

In other news, if any of you live in Canada and do have a credit card, I will gladly pay you for both the adapter and shipping if you're willing to buy it and then ship it to me once it arrives. :)

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? ? ?


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

How is Chro's arms still on fire though? I bet Burnmad has something to do with it.

It's linked to Voltex's everlasting, endless fury.
