Another year has gone by, and so it's time for another top five. 2019 was better than usual for films; I feel like I saw a really diverse set of movies, more diverse than I usually do, and almost all of them in the cinema too. As usual, there are a few films I did not get to, which I'll give honorable mentions to now:
How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World - while I doubt it would have made my top five or even come close, the first film in this trilogy remains one of my all-time favorit
It's that time again - a new campaign will be starting soon, over on the BZPGOT Discord! This time it's an all-new story, an all-new threat, with all-new locations... and featuring all-new characters! It's a new beginning, for a new generation: the EDGE OF DAWN.
If you sign up, your character might even get featured in a nice piece of cover art (or more!) - such as this cover piece done recently for us by none other than @Akaku: Master of Flight!
But what is EDGE OF DAWN? Well, i
As you all know (or don't, I don't actually know who reads this), I hosted a series of games known as BZP's Game of Thrones. Those games finished, but the world that was born from them didn't - and for the last several months, I have hosted a series of smaller campaigns, making use of the wider world (and borrowing heavily from Bionicle's own lore, alongside other fictions and myths) to tell some standalone stories with smaller casts.
So I thought it might be nice to go into the general plo
At long last. Way back in 2016, I first started work on what would become BZP's Game of Thrones. I had no idea if the game would work. I had no idea if people would want to play. I had no idea. This series has basically defined my time on this site (or my time associated with it) for the past several years, which is a little crazy to think about. There have been spinoffs from other members; I've hosted smaller side games; I wrote a freaking fake history book. There will be further stories

Been a few years since I last did one of these I think. I will of course give a quick shoutout as per usual to the movies I didn't get a chance to see yet but think that I would enjoy: A Quiet Place, Ocean's 8, Christopher Robin, A Simple Favor, Assassination Nation, The Old Man & the Gun, Bad Times at the El Royale, Widows, Creed II, Bumblebee, and Anna and the Apocalypse Anyway with that done, let's get on with the show. #1: Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse God, this was a tough one
10 years ago, after months of numerous failed attempts to sign up (I'm not entirely sure how they failed, only that they did), dinky little 12 year old me, hunched at a computer running Windows XP in Winnipeg, tried one last ditch effort to join this site. He succeeded, and named himself "007lewa". Yeah, not the most iconic of names. From there, he dove headfirst into the Comedies forum, where he did his best to brute force his way to prominence with true gems of entertainment (as far as a
Click the banner to join BZPGOT Season 3! Despite the title, I've done my best to make sure that this season can stand on its own, so new players don't necessarily need to be worrying about being up to date will the prior two games or their associated lore. Any returning plot points will be re-introduced as though they were new, although this season will mainly center around new conflicts and characters. I hope you'll come and join! (And feel free to PM me if you have any questions!)
-Qendroj City- -Luroka Qendroj- In what had once been the council chambers for the Mask Maker Pulse Vatten and his Guardians, Luroka sat rigid in his seat at the round table. Onua, the hulking Toa of Earth, stood beside him. Two figures sat across from them. One, a figure clad in rusted navy armor, was unfamiliar to Luroka – but the other, a Water Protector wearing armor with the sigil of House Vatten, was all too familiar. “Why are you here?” he asked at last, breaking the silence. “
Check the map of Okoto right here. Capital: Daggerfall “As Strong as Stone” Located at the junction between what used to be the old territories belonging to House Maran, House Archean, and House Galum, Daggerfall is a melting pot of different Stone house cultures. After ascending to the throne following the War of Five Kings, King Vinheim Maran turned Daggerfall into the greatest political arena on Okoto, and the city’s military strength is second only to Grave’s Peak in the north and Silodas
