Woah, it's hard to wade through a plot so thick!...I've lost my edge.Anyway, great plot development, Frustro was a villain, and the image of Incommodo sprinting through the police station was strangely funny in my head. Also, Incurs-whatever has appeared.And will The Eye appear in the RPG?

Thankyou. Consider this the rollercoaster, and Part II the ghost train....Yes you have.Thankyou.Now, with a plot as thick as this, can you be sure of that?...Okaaaayyyy...Incurso and The Eye are the same person. Except Incurso/The Eye is a Toa of Ice in BZPRPG. I made him a Toa of Earth here so he could sink through the ground.

Yeah. Although, admittedly, the part leading up to the end will be a surprise. I can guarantee that I have a few tricks up my sleeve.42.(Besides, I haven't made THAT many. I actually made less than I had planned, seeing as The Eye/Incurso almost had an air rifle. XD)I have read all the stories. No-one complains about my references and lives. So it's a very good thing you aren't complaining. :)

Read newest chapter. Arkrak seems slightly more incompetent and less similar to any of his incarnations, but I foresee his attempts at flirting with Nikarra.

Whispers is a different story. Part II will have the imaginative name of 'Dark Mirror: Part II'. XPBut Whispers is connected to the epics, more so to Part II of DM than Part I, but it's still connected.

I thought it was pretty good. I mean, it wasn't amazing. But compared to the Green Lantern, it was actually fun. But, yeah, it's interesting to see the plot progressing. Nobody and Myself are certainly weird characters. In a good way, of course. :P

I love the fact that there's nothing special about Pirok or Proditor, despite the fact that Pirok was your old username and Proditor has 'died' on multiple occasions XDAnd it looks like something's telling Incy what to say. Maybe this is to do with the Whispers? Or Nikarra?Pulse and Ignotus survived.Something from a previous chapter: I have to imagine this guy:

“Speak, fool, and be done with it.” One of the beings, a male Vortixx, snapped at Reichenbach.

as Sentraken, due to his pointless insults, short temper, arrogance and lack of importance in the story :P
