  1. I've thought of this before, and I don't think I can come up with a better element than Iron (meaning metal in general, of course, but sounds cooler). After all, this is Bionicle, where metal is in everything. Besides for water and air, metal is so fundamental to the Bionicle universe that it ought to be a correspondingly important elemental power -- that is, one of the six main ones. And who better to make the switch than Pohatu? Certainly the only other option would be Onua (since Pohatu's and Onua's powers encroach on each other, one ought to change to make the distinction clear), but Earth is more encompassing than Stone, so Stone powers might as well be absorbed into Earth powers and Pohatu might as well be the Toa of Iron. Not only is that an improvement for Pohatu, but also for Onua, who formerly could only make earthquakes but now has some material to work with. Also, I've toyed with the idea of Kopaka being the Toa of Crystal (which encompasses Ice powers and makes the distinction between water and ice clear), but for some reason I can't make the change as easily inside of my head as I can with Pohatu becoming the Toa of Iron, which seems quite natural.
  2. Alright, I'm still not sure how I feel about it, but as a starting point, can everyone at least agree that romance should never be the plot's driving force?
  3. Back in this topic I asked you guys what you didn't like about G1. Now, I want to know what you did like about G1. What made it special? Where did it shine? If one moment contained the essence of all that was good in G1, what was it? Thanks in advance for enlightening me!
  4. Of all the potential topics of discussion, this is one of the few that I honestly don't have an opinion on. That's why I want to hear your opinion: should there be romance in Bionicle? To what degree? Is romance even compatible with the Bionicle theme? As always, your insights are very much appreciated!
  5. Okay, I think I see some consensus on the errors of G1: - Bionicle is a fantasy theme, not a science fiction theme - Sudden, total changes in setting are confusing - The dead ought to remain dead - A 5/1 male-to-female ratio makes no sense - A consistent set of themes is essential yet somewhat lacking - Alternative universes are convoluted and unnecessary - It ought to have an ending, not a cut-off - Complex builds are cool (so what's with the Inika?) Does this look right? Is there anything that anyone would like to add? Thank you all again for your valuable insights!
  6. There's no way around it: for all of its high points and our nostalgic fondness, the G1 story line was imperfect at best and a downright mess at worst -- thus is why we all have head-canons. Although I have my own thoughts about where G1 went wrong and ways to improve it, I have recently become very interested to hear what my fellow BZPers have to say about it. So, to you I pose a question probably as old as Bionicle itself: Where do you think G1 went wrong? What would you do to fix it? Would you have liked to see G1 go in a different direction altogether? Thank you all for your insight!
  7. Like Regitnui said, it is probable that EP existed relatively close to the surface of Spherus Magna. After all, we know that a lot of EP came to the surface before the Shattering and it is unlikely that it got there all the way from the core. As far as I know, it has never been officially declared that Spherus Magna did/did not have plate tectonics. However, even though this image clearly shows that Bara Magna has no plate tectonics, looking at the mountains and ravines of Bara Magna, it is very possible that Spherus Magna did. In fact -- and this is just a theory -- it could be that after the Shattering, much of Spherus Magna's molten mantel could have been taken by the more habitable planets of Bota Magna and Aqua Magna while the rest cooled down and solidified into Bara Magna. Without a fluid mantel, there is no plate tectonics, and if plate tectonics are important to support life, that could explain why Spherus Magna was flourishing while Bara Magna was dying.
  8. I would like to clarify: Bionicle Story Group's (BSG) original purpose was to continue producing Bionicle content. By about the second week, we unanimously decided that we wanted to create an original generation of Bionicle rather than continue one of the previous generations. Also, with our story premise finished, we will begin to focus on updating this topic much more frequently in the future and try to provide as many details on our progress as possible while keeping the story itself a secret. For now, we are unsure of the kinds of information we should release to the public, so we are erring on the side of secrecy. But rest assured: discussing public relations will be a top priority for BSG over the next couple weeks.
  9. For some reason my computer won't let me quote, but that's actually a really good idea. In fact, Slack is pretty well suited for that sort of thing. Count me in.
  10. Lately, I've been thinking a lot about G1 and how it could be made more reasonable, teleological (why?), and cohesive (in terms of theme) as well as improving the story as 15 years of hindsight would enable one to do. I would definitely be willing to work with other people on it, but is that one of the intentions of this group(s), or is it strictly about the continuation of G2?
  11. If the area around your avatar is white, that's probably because the background of all the posts is white, so that's what you'll see if the area around your avatar is set as transparent. Not exactly sure if I understood the question, so just let me know if I didn't.
  12. I suppose I should be more specific in that I meant, "Why were matoran designed to cease functioning when not wearing a mask?"
  13. So, there's a lot of mask-wearing in BIONICLE: matoran, toa, and turaga all wear them. But why do matoran have to wear them? Why is it that when they don't wear a mask they pass out? Was there ever any canon explanation given? (Actually, I'd be perfectly happy with someone's personal head-canon on the subject as well) Thanks in advance!
  14. Traditionally, people post to play games in the G&T section. So, I would recommend putting it in the Comics subforum.
  15. 1- you send me a pm, like I said on the first post. 2- individual resources don't have much impact; your region will only suffer if it stops receiving all of the others. The masks are there as trophies of a sort. 3- wars technically aren't possible since there aren't that many people. Open warfare is probably a good way to have other regions team up on you though. 4- no Cool, I think that's all the questions I have. Thanks!
