MAFIA EPIC - Teaser

Posted by Sir Voltex the Blue , in BZP Library Feb 26 2014 · 192 views

The BZPower Times:
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

Mafia Epic - IMPORTANT

Posted by Sir Voltex the Blue , in BZP Library Feb 17 2014 · 561 views

Quick question for those who signed up: I'm writing all of the characters as Matoran (since that is what makes the most sense in this weird world I have created), and so I am here to ask you what element you would each like to be if you have any preferences.

What about you? (SIGNUP) (closed)

Posted by Sir Voltex the Blue , in BZPower, BZP Library Feb 14 2014 · 592 views

Since so many of you graciously expressed your interest in being used as a character, I've decided to go ahead with it: an epic based on the Bionicle Mafia series of games.
 
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.

Interest Level?

Posted by Sir Voltex the Blue , in BZP Library Jan 20 2014 · 130 views

Just thought I'd try and gauge interest here before I actually post something that nobody will read; is there anyone that would be interested in reading an Epic about the lives of Bionicle & Hero Factory sets in the real world?
 
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.

Funny Descriptions

Posted by Sir Voltex the Blue , in Reviews, BZP Library, BZPower Feb 09 2013 · 136 views

So I'm just chatting with one of my irl friends whilst browsing BZPower, and we're flipping through the different library clubs (ECC, SSCC, CCC, Ambage, CFE), and in the middle of looking through different posts, he stops me.
 
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?

Name Change - The AfterWords: Preview 3

Posted by Sir Voltex the Blue , in BZPower, BZP Library Nov 30 2012 · 82 views

I have changed my name to yet another new-but-not-really-new name!
Also because I hatehatehate two entries within a close time period, the third AfterWords preview is included here too. Here Furno plays a little prank on Takanuva Stars.
 
“What is it?” Takanuva Stars asked.
 
“I’m... I’m really scared right now.”
 
“What do I care?” Takanuva Stars asked. “Keep climbing, we’re seriously right there.”
 
“No, you don’t understand! My jetpacks, I can’t control them! They’re about to turn on!”
 
“Your jetpacks can turn on?!” Takanuva Stars cried.
 
“Yes!” Furno wailed. “They’re turning on right now! You’re gonna be blasted into oblivion! Jump while you still can!”
 
“But it’ll be painful!”
 
“I don’t want you to die!” Furno cried. “Jump, save yourself!”
 
Takanuva Stars nodded, saluted the hero, and pushed himself off of the wall. He never knew what he was planning to think on the way down, because the fall lasted all of two seconds before he smacked onto the floor front first.
 
“Oh snap... and crackle... I’m fairly certain I heard a pop.” Takanuva Stars groaned.
 
From above there came a sudden violent burst of laughter that, after a few long seconds, clearly wasn’t going to stop. Takanuva Stars slowly stood to his feet and glared up to where Furno was in the exact same spot as before, laughing so hard he could’ve sworn that the Hero Factory set was about to begin crying.
 
“Oh holy Tohu, that was hilarious!” Furno gasped from above, his chest heaving as he struggled to stop laughing. “I can’t – I can’t believe you fell for that, Hahaha!”

The AfterWords: Preview 2 - CENSORED

Posted by Sir Voltex the Blue , in BZP Library Nov 27 2012 · 90 views

This preview brought to you by the iBrow Voltex Censoring Committee. Needless to say, I am hiding someone's name and hints to their name from you. Have fun!


“You name was CENSORED?” Rocka questioned. “I don’t get it.”

“Well, there were two others by the name of CENSORED, but... they’re gone now. So I just go by CENSORED these days.”

“What happened to the other two?” Rocka asked.

“Rocka, how about we shut up, eh?” Evo suggested. “Quite frankly, I don’t think CENSORED wants to talk about it. Look at CENSORED, CENSORED’s sad now. And you, Rocka, are boring me to tears. I suggest we venture down into the darkness now before we’re caught, so that we have the opportunity to come running back up screaming like maniacs later.”

“Evo, you know what?”

“Yes Rocka?”

“You have a way with words that immediately makes me want to kill myself.”

“I try my best.”

Rocka sighed and decided to inspect the miniscule details of his launcher to avoid continuing his conversation with Evo. Out of the corner of his eye, he could see CENSORED struggling (and failing) not to giggle as CENSORED turned around and began to descend into the basement.

The Afterwords: Preview 1 - Red vs. Blue

Posted by Sir Voltex the Blue , in BZP Library Nov 25 2012 · 60 views

Coming up over the next few days until the release of The Afterwords on December 7th, I'll be treating the three readers of this blog to previews of scenes from the first season.
In this first preview, we get a delicious sample of the Rocka & Evo combination and witness Rocka win out in a subtle argument about the show "Red vs. Blue".


Evo sighed and shook his head, plopping back down on the couch to continue watching the last few scenes of Season 6. Rocka chuckled and hopped over, poking Evo in the back with his crossbow and then jumping down to the floor with a very clear air of victory about him. Evo mumbled something unintelligible under his breath, and Rocka paused.

“Would you care to repeat that for my ancient, withering ears?”

“I said that someday I’ll find a way to beat you in one of those arguments.”

“That is extremely unlikely, considering I’ve beaten you in all 16 of them so far.”

“...I’m just gonna finish my show.”

“You do that. Let me know how it works out for you once you’ve hit Season 9.”

“What’s that supposed to mean?!”

“Well, everyone who’s seen every season agrees that Season 9 sucks.”

“Nothing could be worse than Season 3.”

“At least Season 3 had a plot.”

“...oh dear lord, you have to be kidding me.”

“You know Evo, for once, I wish I was kidding. You’ll have to suffer through it on your own this time I’m afraid.”

“I think I’ll finish this later. I need a bagel right now.”

“See what I mean, fatso? Your solution to every problem – go to the fridge.”

“No it isn’t, stupid!”

“Give me one time it wasn’t.”

“Rocka, how often do you find peanut butter and bagels in the fridge?”

“...I’m just gonna let that one go.”

Stay tuned; Preview 2 coming tomorrow or alternatvely Tuesday!
