DAY 3: Snark is Real

And now it's time for DAY 3!

Tough love.


SIRIEN

"The Snarker"

Created by Inferna Firesword


Some people would tell you that the Ce-Matoran named Sirien is rude.


Sirien would helpfully inform you that those people are wrong.


Having worked as a weapons supplier during both the Destiny War and the Reformation War, Sirien has learned how to negotiate with everything from her fellow Matoran to beings as powerful as (and sometimes more powerful than) the Makuta. Highly intelligent and pragmatic, she demands respect from all who would converse with her, and expects them to hold themselves to her own lofty standards. She is calm and unfazed in all but the strangest of circumstances, and is both snarky and sarcastic to the extreme.


Unfortunately, since the Reformation, society has not had much use for weapons manufacturing - and with a personality hard to get along with, Sirien has struggled to find an occupation that can hold her attention. At the moment, she works as an employee of the Ko-Matoran Makua in both his personal bookstore chain 'Threadbare Books' and the New Atero Library. She has not had the job for long, but its tedious nature already has her itching for action... and an adventure with a Mad Great Being might be just what she needs.

FROM CHAPTER ONE:


Bronze poked the dark bronze and cobalt Matoran in the shoulder six times before she finally reacted, her eyes narrowing into a glare as her gaze shifted from the open book on the counter to him.


“What?!”


“Hello!” he said, smiling and holding out his hand. “I’m Bronze! Who’re you?”


She ignored his outstretched hand in favor of pointing at the name tag on her chest. “Do you know how to read?”


“Nope!”


The Ce-Matoran slammed the book shut and stood to her feet, the stool she had been sitting on scraping the floor as it was pushed back. Without sparing him another glance she turned on her heel and stalked away. Bronze remained where he was for two seconds before rushing after her.


“Wait, come back! I need to ask you something! If I don’t Lady Araina will get mad! Well, you know, more mad then she is already, I guess. Great Beings are so moody sometimes, it’s just like-”


He was cut off before he could continue by a hand pressing against his mouth and shoving him headfirst into the nearest bookshelf. Bronze blinked and shook his head to clear it as the hand was removed and the Ce-Matoran stepped in front of him, poking him hard in the chest.


“Did you just say Great Being?” she asked, her voice dangerously low.


Bronze nodded, grinning. “Yep! She’s my boss! Sorta. She doesn’t say boss but it’s kinda like she is the boss because she tells me what to do and then I do whatever it is?”


“A Great Being,” the Ce-Matoran repeated, bemused. “In New Atero?”


Bronze nodded again, trying and failing to remove the Ce-Matoran’s finger from where it was now stabbing into his chest. “Ow. Yes. She brought me here. We’re looking for some Matoran. I think she went to find the mayor? Yeah, something like that. I wanted to go but she said I had to get us some librarian named ‘Sirien’, whoever that is, and then I got lost for awhile because I didn’t know what a library was but some nice fellow pointed me over here and now I’m here and do you know where this ‘Sirien’ is?”


A look of disbelief was his only response before the other Matoran drily replied, “I’m Sirien.”


He blinked. “Oh.”

What's a BZP Story without BZP characters?


BRONZE

"The Living Mask"

Created by BronzeJet Kanohi Kakama


Every mad being needs a companion, and for the Mad Great Being Araina, that companion is the Ta-Matoran that she has named Bronze. Formerly an ordinary bronze Kanohi Kakama, Bronze was given life after being picked up by Araina ten years ago. With a living Kanohi Mask in her hands that she did not wish to carry, Araina constructed a special bronze, red and o range Ta-Matoran body for him. Bronze has been traveling with (and working for) her ever since.


While the Mad Great Being's often disjointed, rambling thoughts can seem incoherent to most other beings she comes across, Bronze has learned to understand what she means to convey and often serves as a translator... which will undoubtedly prove to be a godsend to the rest of the crew.

While the primary cast of this story is rather small - six characters, to be precise - I am in need of other characters to help populate this world... which is where you all come in! Simply fill out the form below and post it in the comments.


While I cannot promise you an appearance, I will try; just keep in mind that any appearances will be smaller compared to what I've done in the past (but in return, I will try to make each one unique).


NAME: [Quite obviously, really!]
ALTERNATE NAME: [Not to point any fingers, but calling a character by some of your display names might be weird! I can still make it work if you want me to, however.]
SPECIES: [You can choose either Matoran or Agori!]
ELEMENT: [Likewise, you can pick from the canon Matoran elements, or the canon Agori elements!]
OTHER INFO: [Other stuff you want me to know! What is your character's gender? Any recommendations for their personality? Any personal history I might try to include, or a favored tool/weapon? As well as any other good stuff like a specific mask, or colors, maybe.]

STAY TUNED!

Tomorrow you'll meet the next member of the team... and perhaps I'll even give you a teaser of their first encounter with the Mad Great Being!

7 DAYS OF OBLIVION: Day 1: Madness

Posted by Lucina , in BZPower, BZP Library Jan 03 2016 · 635 views

As promised to a few of you, here is the official announcement of ...

Posted Image


Due to a set of unfortunate circumstances (that may have perhaps been unavoidable, since we are online), I was hired on to keep on giving after BZPower's Secret Santa (protip: we should make sure the staff turn it into an annual thing).


Of course, there was only one route to take - write an epic! This particular epic will star a select cast of characters created in part by certain BZPower members. Gathered together by an insane Great Being, they will find themselves in a deadly race to find the Mask of Life, hunting down a mysterious and deadly foe before they can end the newly reformed world....

Of course, what better way to start it all off than to introduce you to the Mad Great Being herself?


ARAINA

"The Mad Great Being"

Created by An/a Blade


Long ago, the Great Being Araina helped her brethren to build the Matoran Universe and create the Matoran. Unfortunately for her, towards the end of the project she had the misfortune of coming into contact with the Kanohi Ignika, Mask of Life - the Mask cursed her, causing everything that she came into contact with to suddenly spring to life. Deemed as mad by the other Great Beings, she was locked away within an ancient fortress deep within the jungles of Bota-Magna.


There she remained until sixteen years ago, when she was freed by a mysterious robotic warrior; she has roamed the planet of Spherus-Magna ever since... until now.

FROM THE PROLOGUE:


He coughed. “You… said something about a Great Being inside of me?”


They shrugged, waving the issue away. “Oh, yes. That nutter. Really, if any of the Great Beings deserved to be called ‘mad’, it’d be him, not me. He managed to override your coding by essentially inserting a small portion of his own soul into you. Made you stop being you and start being him. And then when you broke through, came here and stopped him. Unfortunately, he found a way to transfer his thoughts into you as memories to preserve himself, because both of you are too clever for your own goods. You’re a ticking time bomb.”


“Thanks,” he muttered. “I’m really feeling your appreciation.”


The near-blinding grin he received in response suggested that the Great Being seated in the cell with his staff had long since lost the ability to perceive sarcasm. “Thank you! I do appreciate you! That’s why I brought you here, of course. Because you’re you, and that means you’re lugging him around too. Or, you know, a part of him. It works!”


“What works?!” he cried. “Why did you call me here?!”


“To let me out, of course,” the Mad Great Being said, sounding confused. “Did I not explain it already? You have a bit of a Great Being inside of you. Just grab the bars, picture him in your head, and he’ll be deleted in exchange for freeing me!”

STAY TUNED!

Tomorrow I'll introduce you to the first member of the Mad Great Being's team - and I might have a way for some of you to get involved as well!

do yourself a favor

Posted by Lucina , in BZPower, BZP Library Jan 01 2016 · 331 views

and go read (and follow) Soran's The Road to Home.

It is going to be a fantastic CYOA Comic and is a brilliant idea. Jealous that I did not think of the idea first (even though I don't have the artistic skills to make a comic on my own anyway)

Seriously though go read it and follow.

when you try to make a topic poll but then the poll subjects you to a rude hand gesture before not even bothering to show up at all because I guess it hates you or something??

well guess what, poll

still holding firm with the display name

have successfully overcome the temptation to change my name twice; first to Sharkface which I did on steam instead and kept telling myself was enough until I forgot to change it on BZP, second to Neo but then Tyler took the name and solved all of the problems

anyway, that concludes today's exciting adventures in lucina-ness

gonna go challenge some fates now
