Seneca's Keep


Metals Sale

Posted by Inferna Firesword , in Metals Jul 15 2012 · 192 views

Well, considering that I'm heading to college in a few months, I figure that I might as well give the stuff that I made and don't use new homes. I'm keeping my bronze Kirop and Decepticon belt buckle, since they're coming with me to Western, but four pieces that I've made are up for grabs.

I'll post this pictures and brief descriptions here; if there's enough interest, I'll move it a Seller's topic. I don't have prices in mind just yet; I'm mostly testing the waters.

Item 1: White Bronze Korahk-Kal Ring

This ring was made in my second year of metals class; I think the ring size is 8. It fits on my index finger decently enough. Every once in a while I have to treat the inside of the ring with clear nail polish so my fingers don't turn green when I wear it. :P

Item 2: Silver Three Virtues

I originally made thisto be a medallion; however at the end of things it's rather unweildy as a piece of jewelry and will probably be better off as a paperweight. The design is silver plate suspended inside plastic; unfortunately the silver seems to be tarnishing, and I can't clean it because its completely encased. :(

Item 3: White Bronze Galohk-Kal Shield

This is a holdover from a ring I made: the ring itself was too big for a person it was commissioned for, but I recovered the shield. I haven't actually done something with it -- there's no hole drilled into it -- but it could be altered to be a necklace of some kind.

Item 4: Ancient Bronze Megablok Spartan

This piece was made recently, and shows why minifigs should not live with metal artists. The loop shown in the second picture was added by me to let him become a pendant; the leather string will come with him if anyone takes him in.


I Have To Ask

Posted by Inferna Firesword , in Metals, World Wide Web, BZPower Jun 26 2012 · 219 views

I've got a bunch of metals stuff lying around that I made over the last three years, and I'm thinking about selling them.

Would anyone be interested?

Assuming you have wi-fi in that trunk of yours (or were let out), I've got news for you.

Your commission is cast and nearly ready to be shipped. =P

Still needs a little cleaning work, but I like how it came out. Also, it's friggen huge on my finger.

Hope you like it; it's practically the only thing that went the way it was supposed to this week.


Transform And Roll Out [Metals]

... or, the other Transformers belt buckle I've recently finished. xD

It looks a little different from the Decepticon one because I used a different method to carve the wax (the Dcon one was carved by handtools, while this one was carved using a machine), but I like how this one came out.

(Not for sale, btw.)


So While The Forums Were Down...

Posted by Inferna Firesword , in Writing, Metals, School, Life May 03 2012 · 173 views

I did stuff.
  • Pestered Mark about the second buckle, a Hau I'm casting (which I might sell at BCon, assuming I get down there this year), and various other things
  • Played Borderlands with one of my real-life friends
  • Finished the final section of my senior project and started pulling together my notebook
  • Got a package from Watashi Wa in the mail (TransNeon Miru ^^)
  • Worked on a commission from Swert
  • Got hit by end-of-the-year stuff like a ton of bricks
Just six more weeks until I graduate ... at long last.

(Oh, and Ak might be coming to Seattle over the summer! ^^)


My Tribute To The King Of Puns

(aka: DeeVee's finished commission xD)

A pair of '01 Kakamas, cast in yellow bronze (once again Mark decided to ignore my instructions for white bronze >_>), held in my hand to better show their shininess.

Expect these arriving in your mailbox soon, DV. ^_^

(title reference: Here)


Decepticon Buckle

Posted by Inferna Firesword , in Metals Apr 12 2012 · 185 views

Posted Image

Behold, what I've been working on since January.

It's not as shiny as it actually is, since the lighting in my kitchen is lousy, and there was a lot of black petina on the metal that I couldn't completely get rid of. I'll probably keep the black, since it makes it look more sinister.

Btw, the gash on the bottom right side was unintentional: when I was cutting it away the bottom sprews, I let another student take over for me when I went to rest my hands, and when I came back he had cut into it instead of along the side.

Incidentally, lest you think this is merely nerd art, I advise you to think again. It's functional as a belt buckle and a declaration of your Transformers allegiance. ^^

(Not for sale ... yet.)


Metal Spartan Minifig

Halo, Metals Class
1 down, 299 more to go.

There's a loop on his back that you can't see in this pic, where I'm planning to put a chain/leather string and wear him as a necklace; I'll link a picture once I do so.

*prepares for imminent Halo fans wanting to buy it*

(I'm considering selling him, though I haven't decided just yet. I'll let you know if I do sell. :P)


Metals Update

Decepticon Symbol Belt Buckle: awaiting casting

Autobot Symbol Belt Buckle: in early creation stages

DeeVee's commission: ... not too great.

Apparently when I emphasized to Mark that I wanted the Kakamas to be in white bronze as opposed to regular yellow bronze (last time that resulted in Zarayna's Matatu being in the wrong metal), he took that as an indication that I wanted it in a special metal, and attempted using copper on it.

To put it bluntly, it didn't cast right at all, so I don't even have the masks in another metal. On top of that, when I complained to him that it was a commission piece, his reaction was "... why didn't you tell me? I would've taken it seriously then."

Mark. You're a teacher. You should take every piece seriously. -.-

So yeah, basically I'm back to square one on the commissions and getting more Kakamas. Sorry, DeeVee. :(


Reopening The Commissions

Posted by Inferna Firesword , in Metals, BZPower Nov 07 2011 · 102 views

Since Swert just plugged me, I feel obligated to repost the commissions list. Please note that I need to make some adjustments to the lists, since Mark now has a 3D printer (so making rings, weapons, and previously-forbidden things could be easier now). Thanks for your patience. =)

There are a few things I will flat-out refuse to do. Avoid at all costs:
  • any rubbery pieces (i.e. Inika masks, Skakdi heads, etc)
  • Launchers/Launcher ammo
  • Ehlek claw (tried already. Epic fail)
Now that the list of doomed items is done … on with the rest!


  • White(resembles silver)
  • Yellow (resembles gold)
  • Ancient (resembles copper)
Silver (limited supplies)

Kanohi/Other Set Pieces
I only do these in bronze; please specify if you want yellow, ancient, or white bronze in your piece. If I don’t have a certain piece in my possession (mostly referring to masks), you’ll need it sent to me on the condition that you won’t be getting the plastic version back. (If you do want it back, it’ll cost more since I need to make a copy.)
Price Range: $10-17

Put in their own separate section since they take more time (bendy silver pieces don’t burn out very well), I can do these in bronze and possibly glass. (Please specify what coloration you would like for either: yellow, white, and ancient for bronze, and the variations for glass.) Again, if I don’t have the piece, you’ll have to mail it to me, but chances are you’ll get that one back.
Price Range: $20-25

I only do these in white bronze, since it’s too expensive for me and Mark to make silver ones. I have a set selection of things you can stick on top; the list will expand as I make more molds for them. I’ll need a ring size for this, so PM with your size when you send in the info; if you don’t know, I’ll tell you how to find out.
Decorative Pieces: Nuparu Inika claw, Gahlok shield, Kohrak-Kal shield, Tahnok shield
Price Range: $25-35

Give me ideas, and I can probably try and make them reality. This area can extend beyond Bionicle, but try to make them realistic.
Price Range: ? (it all depends on the piece)

I will only take three commissions in a certain period, since I have other personal projectsI’m working on at the same time. The sign-up works on the basis of ‘First come, first served’ – no reserving spots for yourself; if you didn’t make it on, wait until the next commission session.
If you make it on the list, PM what you want done, along with the details. I’ll keep you in the know as I work on it, and once I think it’s ready, I’ll send a picture or two of it. If you agree, we’ll settle the price, and then we can send them along. I’ll cover the shipping; my mom’s Paypal will be the method of payment.
Thanks. =)

These halls have seen much. From tales of heroes and friendship to tales of villains and death, from stories familiar to the ones out of our world, they have seen them all.

Enter Seneca's Keep if you dare. These halls ring with the laughter, screams, and sobs of those that enter our realms and listen to our words. Many leave in the end, but there are those that fall so under our spell that they never set foot in the outside world again.

They still haunt the Keep -- you may see them out of the corner of your eye, pale and wane from lack of proper sustance. They will not harm you, so long as you do not give them reason to, but take their tale as a warning. Delve into our otherworldly plots with caution -- immerse yourself too deeply, and even we Seneca will not be able to prevent you from becoming part of the Keep and our stories forever.

Join us at your own risk.

The Toa Seneca And Their Wares

Who We Are: "Seneca" means "place of stones" in a certain Native American dialect. This relates to the Amaja Circle on Mata Nui, the story-telling pit where the Turaga used stones to represent various points of a story. In some way -- be it through Role-Playing in the RPG forum or CoT, writing stories in the Library, or creating comics in the Creative Outlet -- we all tell stories to others. By ourselves and with the aid of others, we bring these tales to life. We are the Storytellers. We are the Toa Seneca.

~La Pantoufle Seule ~: OOC: ME TO THE RESCUE. -fanfare plays while I jump off building-



Alex Humva: Zarry has the powers of prediction, guys. Listen to him, lest you become a fly on honeypaper thats on fire with a nuke aimed at it.

Shot by a PHYSICIST!: *Spittake* Three point five? That does it. I'm moving to Washington.

Japoro (in an arguement with Kagha about the possiblity of AeolusxAmph in H&H): You say she wants to dump me for some loser air toa?! I KILL YOU FOOL!

Akaku: I'm not scared of Inferna -- just fearfully surprised.

Sir Kohran: If your parents think you're too old for Lego, simply ask them what you should be into instead, then enjoy the bewildered silence that follows.

Me: On a weird scale we're all normal, but on a normal scale we're all weird.

Half-Dragon: Seems like everyone and their archnemesis has a legacy. Me? I don't even HAVE an archnemesis, let alone a legacy. Does that make me shallow or just really lucky?

Akaku: I like to pretend everything is going well whilest in reality its nothing short of the apocalypse.

AlchemyFox: All love is tragic... Unless you're Shakespeare. Then it's just plain "Whaaaaaat?"

Necro: A lie is just a great story that someone ruined with the truth.

Varderan: Violence makes the world go around.

Along with pretzels and assorted hair products.

Kagha (about something I told him from LST): ... DEATH?

Amph's gonna die?

*runs into basement, pulls out hammer, and runs after Inferna*

Kagha in KG: Anyway, curse you all and your stupid fast-moving RPG. ><

(My personal statement) "Interjection: Silence, meatbags!" - HK-47

Mangai (in my profile): @ Personal statement: Oh, yeah! HK RULEZ

Too bad I never played KotOR, or its sequel XP

Me (in his profile): Actually, that quote came from a MMO trailer that follows KOTOR II. =P

Mangai (in my profile): CARKITALL

Oh, well, now I have proof that I am unawesome for Zar. Thanks! :P

More Quotes

Alex (in KG): YAY-*Choughhackwheeze*

Necro: Wait.

If guitars are universes, and I play with and own multiple guitars, does that make me a God?


Alex (in Starscape): an era when Natsirt claimed to be guns

King of Shadows (in Starscape): BEST ERA OF ANYONE'S HISTORY ANYWHERE

Peach 00 (in PM): Always loved the Song of Double Time on Majora's Mask. Watch, we'll figure out somebody on the planet has an ocarina and is the source of why the year is going by so fast. :P

Myself (in an AIMRPG; as Toa of Psionics Kalima): "Who's he?"

Akaku (in the AIMPRG; as Toa of Undeath Akuji): "He ... He is part of everything ... He is the age in a being, the disease in a society, the bullet in a gun... He is what gives this world balance. He is the one who looks after the fallen, and either sends them to the pit or the realm of the great beings ... He is among all of us, even now, especially in my kingdom ... especially in me."

Why Inferna Shouldn't Play Rpgs

Rockhound (in the BZProvince Discussion Topic, fighting Xom and Kagha over my character): We really should get all three of us together and brawl it out. Winner-date-'Ferna. :P

Kagha (in KG): Lol, Xom, Inferna can only have so many romantically involved characters. XD

Rockhound (in KG): Says who, Kagha? :P

Xomeron (in KG): If by "So Many" you mean Infinity. In BZProvince, she had four people chasing after her character at once! My character included.

HN (in KG): OOC: Inferna, I am not going to IC six guards all fighting two people. xD
And Inferna, wouldn't that mean that you're fighting Mark? o_o; Do you want me to take Mark.
-i didnt give Inferna an idea I DIDNT I DIDNT-
-in denial-

Me (in KG): OOC: Thanks for the ideaaaa.[/singsongvoice] :evilgrin:

Me (in KG): OOC: Hint to HN: Don’t give ideas to the evil genius co-Moderator. :P


Akaku (on AIM): (If people are flirting with you in RPG's again, I will note I now fully reserve the right to yell at them XP)
