Well, now that the big rabbit is out of the hat, it's time to start wondering: What are this GB's plans? TYQ chapter 3 ended simply with the ominous tone that the GB's plans need to be stopped. What are those plans? How will he reveal himself?And, of course, all of these questions can be easily summed up in one: When do we get the next chapter?

I'm pretty sure that I was on the same side as you on my first post. (And I already knew that Helryx wasn't the GB when Greg told us.)So basically, we both agree that Helryx isn't the GB. :)

That's a fun coincidence! We're working on a system for random factoids like that on BS01, and it's always good to keep in mind (I think KZN02 has a list somewhere). Obviously the meaning is retrospective, but I do enjoy amusing coincidences like that.Anyhow, after the reveal that there was a secret GB in the MU, Greg started a contest on BZP to guess the identity, and he would pick a winner (of the contest, not necessarily the character itself) based on the reasons provided. The contest was eventually abandoned, but the lingering plot thread remained.Personally, when we were deciding what to ask Greg, this is what stuck out most in my mind. It's not entirely important without context, but it's a bit of closure that I appreciated.As for how we got in contact with Greg... meh, if ER wants to say, he can, but I think it's better off leaving it as a mystery. He's sort of done with BIONICLE at this point, so the last thing I'm sure he needs is a bunch of people asking him about it.

I'm actually quite speechless. A very interesting twist on Greg's part. Never would've seen good, old riddle speaker as the hidden Great Being. Now all that we need is the identity of the trigger man who killed Tren Krom and Karzahni. Then Bionicle can finally die peacefully, because for all our sake, finish the story already!

So with secret divulged, will we actually get anymore? Because if he has no power and time to write serials, he should really just reveal who the killer is and more because waiting that long for an answer is ridiculous. End the story so people like me can continue it in their own way.

This. I hope that he will just name the Murderer and maybe give a short synopsis of what was planned. I think then that BIONICLE, for me at least, can finally feel like it has definitive closure. This was a huge step though.-Star

Yeah, I'm going to have to agree. It's not the most satisfying ending by far, but I'd prefer knowing all the variables over waiting for who knows how long until there's an update. At least then I know that if there is an update my personal continuation won't be completely wrecked if my current guess as to the murderer is is incorrect.I wouldn't reaaally mind the other loose plot threads being left to dangle because they're inviting me like a cat's invited by a twitching line of yarn; the identity of the killer is like a missing thread I need before I can start my own attempt at continuing where the braid left off.... okay this is my last post for the day I swear, where am I even getting these metaphors...

True. However, that seems highly unlikely considering that his last chapter was nearly a year ago and he's far too busy to make another. Ending it now with whatever spoilers he has left would just bring Bionicle to a good close, at least, for the time being.

I don't think Greg has the authority to end the story. One, Lego left the story going so that they could possibly revive it in the future (there have been several reasons that both BZPers and Greg have speculated as to why this may be). Two, Greg is not allowed to reveal the "true nature of the Great Beings" so he's not just going to reveal everything now. That lends itself to the probability that Lego doesn't want to give Bionicle up, IMO.
