As usual, this story is not a sequel to any of my other epics, past, present, or future, so feel free to jump right in! The Review Topic Chapter 1 - The Wave Atilucen woke up to see a huge wall of water coming right at him. He stumbled backwards in the manner of an upside down crab across the rock had been lying on, but the water was coming much too fast for him to do much before it came down on top of his body. He felt his helmet hit the rock below him, and the pain jolted him to alertness. The current pushed him backwards, away from the shore. Frantically, he swam for the surface, yelling in pain as tree branches clunked against his armor. Sand swirled around him. His head broke the surface, and he snatched a breath. He grabbed onto a tree, struggling to keep his head above water. Then he struggled to hang on as the water rapidly reversed direction, trying to pull him out to sea. Gritting his teeth, his arms wrapped around the trunk, he managed to maintain his grip until the sea returned to its normal boundaries. That’s when he fell unconscious. * * * “Get up!” a voice yelled. Krakua groaned and rolled over. He was standing in front of his De-Matoran brothers, hands poised to begin. All he would have to do is strike the downbeat and… A horrible sound rang in his ears. A collection of the most bizarre notes imaginable, all strung together in the most horrible tune imaginable. His audience turned to mock him, laughing at his cobbled together De-Matoran band. “Toa Krakua, professional laughingstock!” “Look, they can’t even carry a tune!” Shuddering, he curled up beneath the podium in front of him, waiting for the jeering to stop. Just stop. “I said get up!” an enraged voice yelled. A hand shook him roughly, slamming him into a wall. A jolt of pain brought him back to consciousness. The bizarre notes still rang in his ears, a cacophony of sharply dissonant tones, as his eyes beheld the leering face of Tobduk. He tried to get up, and accidently hit said leering face with his Hau. The titan retreated a step to allow the Toa of Sonics to stand up off his bed. “Sorry,” said Krakua. “Move!” Tobduk said, grabbing onto Krakua’s arm and pulling him forcibly out of the room. Krakua wondered what he had done to earn Tobduk’s wrath now. Was his training not progressing well enough? He hurried to keep up with the Order Leader’s strides as he practically pulled the Sonics Toa into a run through the stone hallway of the fortress. That’s when he heard a rush of something that sounded like…water. A huge thunderclap as the wall to the left of him collapsed and he was carried away in a rush of water. “Krakua!” Tobduk yelled. But it was no use, as the Sonics Toa could not swim. The water had knocked the wind out of him, and all he could do was close his eyes and wait for death. * * * Krakua was on his back. And he was breathing air. Alive. The awful chords had ceased – the only sound in his ears was the roar of the ocean. He carefully tuned down his delicate audio receptors to avoid further distraction. “I decided to spare your life,” said Toa Helryx. “There is a great evil on the many waters I must defeat. My brothers have made many things wrong, and I must fix them.” Helryx? “It’s good to see you again.” Krakua said. But the Toa of Water was already walking away. He shook his head. What was going on? Could he have imagined it? Helryx had gone missing just before the universe ended. But why did she suddenly show up now? No, he was alive. He knew he was alive. He felt all of the pain from being battered about. Was Helryx behind that wave? He wondered. Is she trying to destroy us all? “Krakua!” a voice resounded from behind him. Tobduk. But where is he? The Toa of Sonics found that he was lying on a rocky outcropping, a triangle-shaped spit of cliff that connected with the general cliff edge that marked the ocean. He got to his feet, looking down over the rocky beach below. That’s when he saw the top half of Tobduk’s form lying on the rocks. Krakua shuddered, and looked around frantically for a way down. “I’m here” he said, loudly. But there was no way down that Krakua could see, and no response from below. * * * Somewhere else, green lilypads bobbed peacefully in a pool, decorated with beautiful pink flowers. A thin stream of water fell into said pool, making a small gurgling noise. A vent near the bottom let the water escape, so that it did not overflow the pool. The pool and the wall behind the water were made of clear glass. ROAR BANG CLAP SHING BEEP BOING CLAP ROAR SHING DONG… The room shook, and water splashed over the edge of the pool and across the floor. Images flashed; a picture of a Bota Magna dinosaur roar, a hunter’s gun, a sword, an insect, and then the dinosaur again. A pair of eyes watched this whole thing absently, strained, a stream of being coming from the agony of stillness. Not real. The stream dried up. Review Here.
Backstory: The Baterra are rising again, and the Order of Mata Nui are the only ones who can stop them. Secretly harnessing the power of the Mask of Creation (known simply as the Artifact), the various agents of this hidden organization have been forced to pass it around different fortified strongholds, but the Baterra seem to be unbreakable. A special tournament was devised to find Matoran creative and adaptable enough to carry the Artifact from one castle to the next. It consisted of specially-chosen Matoran fighting each other with self-designed weapons. System: The premise of the game is to create weapons and tools with the attributes you are given and defeat your opponents. The players have a lot of freedom here, so please keep it logical. Speaking of attributes, here’s how they work: At the start of each round, all of the contenders will find themselves in front of a chest full of materials and supplies. I will PM you and tell you your attributes, consisting of an attack type and element. These are determined by me rolling a die, with no bias whatsoever. The attack types are as follows: Melee (Blade, Blunt, and Claw) and Ranged (Firearm, Grapple, and Grenade). The elements are Fire, Water, Ice, Air, Earth, and Stone. There is also a chance of getting an Extra attribute - Gravity, Psionics, Speed, Electricity, Vacuum, or Overload. This is where elemental boosts come in. If a weapon’s element corresponds to one of your boosters, you may receive an Extra attribute. (1 boost = 100% Extra; 2 boosts = 50% Extra each; 3 boosts = 33% Extra each) This is also determined by rolling a die. Judging: Unlike other games, this one relies heavily on me judging your ideas. You don’t have to write an entire essay explaining your weapon, simply an in-depth few sentences will do the trick. (I’m a sucker for technobabble.) Of course, there is the simple ‘logic’ element - a gravity-enhanced fire grenade would probably beat an earthen club, even if said club has every detail masterfully described and explained. I will write a combat scene for each attack at the end of the 24-hour waiting period. Play: First, sign up for the game by choosing a spot. Then, PM me a profile with your in-game name and 1-3 chosen elemental boosts. The game will begin once everyone has PMed me their profile. Each round, I will PM you an element and an attack type. I expect you to reply with a short description detailing a weapon that fits said attributes, along with who you would like to attack. I will judge the winner based on how creative and well-suited to the situation your weapon is. Example: If your attributes are Blade and Sonics, you can do something like this - The sonic vibration sword is a large, curved saber with a silver protosteel blade and hilt. Intricate mechanisms inside the weapon’s blade emit powerful bursts of sound when the sword is swung in arcs, channeling sonic energy through the various vibrating components housed in the weapon. Rules: BZPower rules apply. No spamming, flaming, or bad language. Please don’t complain about outcomes. Have fun! Arsenal: ROUND ONE ROUND TWO ROUND THREE FINAL ROUND Spots: 1. Arzaki (Arzaki) 2.

So I was wondering, has anyone ever built any of the fan created canon characters from the contests, like Tahtorahk or Krakua? I have all the pieces I need to build Tahtorahk, but for Krakua, I am missing only the hand pieces. The real problem is the lack of instructions. I would also like to build some of the Rahi from the Rahi Beasts book, a lot of those would require instructions...
