Updated 9/20 (see below)Hey BIONICLE fans,I know many of you have been asking for some BIONICLE news or story updates for quite a while now (over a year!). Well, today, the wait is finally over... somewhat.I have been communicating with Greg Farshtey outside of BZPower for a few weeks now to try to come up with a way to deliver some news. Still working that out as he's been very busy, but at least I got something for you guys!We finally know who the disguised Great Being is (remember the being Orde was referring to in The Yesterday Quest, Chapter 3?)! If you do not wish to be spoiled and want to wait for Greg Farshtey to write a chapter (lol good luck), then do not click the following spoiler tag:
Spoiler
-------------UPDATE [9/1]: I asked Greg two very important questions people were wondering about concerning the disguised Great Being, and here are the answers in the following spoiler tag:

-------------UPDATE [9/20]: What is the undisguised Great Being's motive? Click the spoiler tag to find out:

Excuse me a moment, I need to pull up my The Legend Reborn clips... Ah, there it is. As Kiina said...YES! I was RIGHT! Whoo-hoo! -boogies- I was right, I was right...Ahem. Yes. Thank you very much for getting us this information, Erebus! I'd already guessed it'd be that being, but it's quite wonderful to know that I was RIGHT! Hmm-hmm-hmm, hm-hmm-hmmmm...

I too am saddened that (as far as I'm aware) the prize thing can't happen. As much as I'd love for it to happen, I understand that none of us can prove our ages.I'm wondering when BS01 will be updated with the news.

Unrelated to the GB, though, I'm glad to hear that there's at least some hope of the story continuing in the future, even if it won't be any time soon. Thanks a ton, Erebus! ^_^

I'm wondering when BS01 will be updated with the news.

As soon as I can figure out how to structure the page without changing the tone (or changing the style entirely to make it consistent). Metax is a prime example of how weird it can get (and even now, I think the page is so-so).

Aha! I was rooting for him! Thanks, Erebus.If my opinoin means anything, I think this fellow's BS01 page should be left alone untill we have it revealed in a story update.Has Greg said anything on his sitution? I know he's too busy for writing, but you'd think he could at least give us a "Hello! Sit tight!"Hope he's doing well.

Can you tell him thanks from us next time you get in contact with him? I remember last August a lot of people may have sent him PMs thanking him, so please tell him that we miss him and he'll have a very warm welcome when he returns!Thank you!Posted Image

Right. So....what is the significance of this? Like, I don't really get all this. A character we knew is a different species to what we thought he was. Great. This did always seem like a twist for the sake of having a twist. And given that the story is probably finished, there's no point in this.I just don't get the excitement at such a pointless and lazy attempt at a twist.- Tilius

You said 'lol good luck' about the prospect of Greg writing another chapter, which makes me think it's not likely. But I do hope we can get some more information from him. Like what he intended to happen in the stories, if they're never going to be finished.
