Cool stuff. 

 

Seraphimon, BZPower is not dead yet...

 

But decreasing membership has resulted in the formation of a very small, but tightly knit community here.

That could be good or bad depending on how you see it..?

Anyway, I would like to say thank you to the MNW Crew for another detailed and helpful edition of the Mata-Nui Weekly. As always, keep up the good work. :thumbsup:

Hey team! A little while ago I realized that I had started putting a lot of pointless Rama-war history into Le-Koro's NPC posts. As I don't want to clutter up those, I thought I'd start a little writing project.

 

___

 

Bionicle: Moirai

                                                            By Alex Palm

kongurisefall-rise-gifmadefastest2dark.g

 

     Bionicle: Moirai follows some of the original defenders of Le-Koro during their war with Makuta, including Kongu. Kongu is the newest addition to one of the oldest teams of Le-Koro. who's made a name for himself as a capable warrior and Le-Koro's fastest leaf-runner. Struggling with ideological battles and the constant threat of death by the Swarm, Kongu's friend and fellow soldier Karata is searching for a last-ditch solution to the problem on everybody's minds:

 

     They cannot survive much longer.

 

___

 

Please check it out the topic for the project itself, including a larger explanation of the narrative as well. And if you'd like to discuss it, please leave your comments in the discussion topic. It'll update as I finish chapters. :)

 

Thanks fam, <3

Are there any banker type characters out there that would be willing to do any large, possibly risky, investments?

Banker characters huh?

 

Don't think there's any of them floating around.

 

Give me five minutes to churn out a generic Hubert-type banker character.

Well first, Hubert brings up an excellent point.

"Civilised" is an extremely subjective word. In my case, a dominance by one gender, strict caste system, a general self-rightousness in their superiority, and et cetera seems... A bad place to live in, compared to Mata Nui. But even that's subjective...

I think uncivilised might be too wibbly-wobbly in terms of definition. Sorry, I don't know how to speak my thoughts properly a lot of times, and I'm struggling to find words to describe the difference.

One thing I can say is that I like how the two cultures of Mata-Nui and Kentoku are juxtaposed. One values the individual's actions more than the society as a whole while the other is a strict duty-bound society with close to no encouragement for "striking out" on your own so to speak. Unless you are a Datsue.

"Bad" is also quite a subjective term.

 

From your perspective, the situation on Kentoku seems "bad" (something I disagree with), in comparison to the "goodness" of the overly anarchic society of Mata Nui.

 

I'd consider both of them pretty "eh". 

 

I'm actually the result of a duty-bound society with greater emphasis on family over the individual.

Both aren't paragons of virtue, because they lean on the extremes.

But given the choice, I would wish for someone to be on Mata-Nui than on Kentoku, mostly because of the caste system..

I dunno. Just my view. Like I said. Subjective, and I'm not a good judge of good or bad. :P

Then you could be nothing but an insect to the society despite your sea-faring expertise, or treated as a servant forever(as evidenced by Fanixe's latest post, if I remember correctly).

Now, being in a duty-bound society ain't bad on its own, but Kentoku's is too restrictive.

Then again, it isn't their fault. They(like my progenitors) would prefer order and hierachy after decentralisation leads to chaos. And I agree.

But Kentoku's system... Well it's not all bad, but still.

But I was comparing them to each other. Of course, if we were to compare the two locales to real life, well... Who wouldn't want elemental powers? :P

On the other hand mad Skakdi don't roam the real world(I hope) so...

That said, Mata-Nui is starting to look a little gloomy too.

At first I was laughing so hard at this, but then I realized something: it's so perfect! 

 

I mean, think about it.  The Dark Walk is supposed to be this big and scary place where bad things can happen and danger lurks in the shadows.  We're finally seeing some of that danger explode out of nowhere and take someone overwhelmingly off guard.  As much as I pity Greisk I also can't wait to watch how he either dies/become enslaved/or meets his doom.  Good character development.
