Here is the review Topic!
It has been a while since I made an epic on BZP, the last several ones did not make it unfortunatley and I'm not sure if I can stand another one dying again... Yet my will is strong and I wil ltry one last time, hopefully coming close enough to at least scratch the wall of epic history. So here it is, and enjoy!
Chapter 1 ~ ~ ~ Intro
He walked home after a long day, he sat at his desk in the dark, dank hut and overlooked the blueprints over and over, looking for the smallest flaw in the plans. Once he was absolutely sure that it was perfect he carefully rolled the fragile paper up and stuck it into his pack. He layed down on his bed and fell asleep dreaming about the finished product of the numbers and lines on the sheet of blue grid-lined paper.
The next morning he awaked to a bright sunlight and got out of bed. He thought for a moment on why he was so excited on this morning then he glanced at the rolled up blueprint in his pack and remembered.
*Today is the day that I finally produce the prototype for that new kanohi...* he thought. His name was Websnake, he didn't know why he was named that, but he never really bothered to find out.
He grabbed his pack, hung it over his shoulder, and set off. Before he walked out of the door, he gently tucked the blueprint into the pack so nobody would know that he was one of them... He was in truth a worker of KanohiTechINC, the secret underground factory from where all the kanohi originated. He was the architect of the prototypes, one of the most important positions in the factory. His job was to create the "molds" so they called them, the ones used to create the real things. He stepped in front of the tunnel marked "dead-end" and he walked into it. He looked back, making sure no one was around to see him go in, and he reached the back wall. He looked back again, just incase, then pressed a stone on the ground into a hole in the wall. The middle of the tunnel behind him closed up, to ensure he wasn't being followed, and the wall he was facing opened, revealing a brightly lit underground cavern. In the middle of the cavern was an immense building constructed of tritanium, the strongest metal in the world that can only be found in this cavern. No one but the workers know about all this, and what is planned is that no one is to find out unless the time so calls for it. He wondered why no one suspected the large vacant lot in the middle of the city he lived in was there, and why no one was allowed to build housing or stores on it. But he knew the answer already, it was because this building is specially designed to come up from the ground when it is eventually revealed. He walked into the building and stepped into the Miru powered elevator and stopped it at the floor he worked on. He walked through the long hallways until he found his office. The office he worked in almost all day was literally huge for it's seemingly small size. It was filled with almost every tool you could possible imagine to get his job done. He took out the blueprint from his pack and unrolled it onto the large drawing board, he clamped the four corner clips on it to hold it steady, and closed the window to prevent the drafts from rustling the paper around. Once he ensured the paper could not be moved he sat at a large table. He hit a button on the side of the chair, at first, nothing happened, then a large telescope-like instrument came out of the ceiling near him. It was called a magniscope, a magnifying glass and a telescope combined. He moved the table so he could see into it while sitting down, and he aimed it at the blueprint. He opened a drawer on the table and grabbed a hunk of flexiclay. Flexiclay was a special type of clay that would not harden and dry until placed into the oven. He opened another drawer and took out a ruler, knife, and texture tool. The texture tool, or Textool so he called it was a handy piece of equipment that could change its flat knife like side into almost any texture. He stared deeply into the magniscope paying attention to the sizes and curves of the drawing. Then he began to carve out the shape of the mold using the knife and textool with great care and expertise. Time passed as the block of flexiclay became more and more like its intended shape. Finally he hit the button on his chair and made the magniscope go back into the ceiling, he unclipped the blueprint from the drawing board and placed it in a frame to later put with his other blue prints. He took a flat pan and very carefully slid the flexi clay onto it, making sure he didn't lose any of the form. He carried the pan to the oven in the wall, he opened it slid the mold into it, closed it, then set the time for it. He anxiously waited for the 30 minutes to pass as the flexi clay hardened in its support piece. When about 10 minutes were left his friend came in to check on how he was doing.
"Hey Web, how's that new kanohi mold coming?" Morgoth said.
"It's almost done, about 9 minutes left before it is fully hardened. How are you doing on that broken down molder?" I said.
"I tell ya, it's a major pain in the butt, the thing acts like it has a mind of it's own and will NOT cooperate with me no matter what I do!!"
"Well good luck on getting it fixed, try asking Tesseract to help you, he has a good engineering skill you know..."
"I thought of that, but I know how busy he is, I didn't want to disturb his hard work, but I will give it a try anyways, thanks."
He left to go talk with Tesseract and I looked at the timer, 4 minutes to go.... He walked over to the frame of the blue print and picked it up. He walked over to the large rack at the back of the room that was holding all of the other blueprints he made. He placed it with the other ones and walked over to the table. He put away that tools after washing them off and rolled up the scraps of flexiclay and placed it back in the other drawer. The beep rang out as the times hit zero and he eagerly walked over to the over. When he opened it he saw what he dreamed about, the kanohi mold, perfectly shaped like in the blue print, another masterpiece of his work. He brought it to a large box on the side counter and laid the mold into it. He closed the box and hit a button that said Copy and Shrink. There was a brief flash from the edges of the box and then a small *ding* rang out. He opened the box and inside was the original mold and ten smaller copies next to it. He pulled out the original and brought it to the cabinet displaying all the other molds he made, he placed it in the empty space he made for it and labeled it 'Kanohi Otaku, Mask of Plasma' Under the label he noted : Color - Purple. He then took the ten copies and places them in a small tin box and walked out of the room, making sure to lock it behind him. He arrived at the heart of the factory, the Creation room. In the center of the room was a very large machine. This machine gives the kanohi its power. Some say that it is blessed with the will of mata nui himself. Others say that it contains every element of power in the universe. Whatever it is, it's the only one like it in the entire world. The process in which the kanohi are made is very simple, though it takes a bit longer than it sounds. There are ten machines, each receives a copy of the mold and they place it inside of it. It intern makes a wireframe version of the mold. The wireframe is unreal, in that is actually acts like a glass, but it cannot be touched physically. The wireframe travels from the small machine to the huge one via a series of conveyor belts. The wirefram arrives in the big machine, where it is filled with color and power essences. It comes out as a wearable kanohi that gives the user it's designated power. The wireframe does disappear in the process by the way. This is how the kanohi are produced. He walked over to the small machines and came to the first of the ten matoran working them.
"Hey, here is the new mold for the Kanohi Otaku, enjoy!" I said to him
"I'm glad to see your still making these wonderful molds Web, this here IS a tough business, so to speak" replied Devilman.
"I'm surprised too, but with my skill I don't think they would even think about firing me anytime soon..."
I walked to each one of them having a short conversation with each, and then I waited while Devil put through the first wireframe. My boss came in just as it started moving on the conveyor belt and stood behind me while I awaited the arrival of the first two copies of it. One was for me and the other was for the boss. I at the time didn't know he was behind me, as I was too caught up in my eagerness. They came out, perfect in every way, a brilliant shade of purple. I picked up both of them, I felt the heat emanating from them as I turned around. I saw the boss standing there, I handed him his copy. He took it gently, inspecting it inch-to-inch. He finally looked up at me, a big grin on his face.
"Well, Web, I see you have successfully created another terrific work here, I thank you for such a great effort on this team." he said
"Thank you sir, I hope that each time my work will become better and better, as I create more." I replied
With that he walked off still amazed at the fine craftsmanship of my work.
I held my own copy, I ran my hand down the smooth surface of the mask. It looked like a cross between a Hau and a Kakama, and it looked fantastic. I walked back to my office and placed my hand on the high security door at the back of my office. The door unlocked and I entered into a beautiful display of brilliant kanohi all over, I placed the new kanohi in its place, label and all, and started to walk out. I saw that Morgoth had entered again.
"So Web, how did the mask turn out? Did the boss like it?" he asked quickly.
"It turned out great, the boss loved it!" I said with happiness.
I walked into the room and grabbed the kanohi, I brought it out and handed it to him.
"Woah," he said, after looking at it, "It feels like it has a fire burning inside it, yet it is VERY nice."
"Thanks, I'll make sure to get you a copy once I make another trip to the Creation Room." I replied.
"Really? That would be great, thanks web!"
He ran out to get back to his work. I looked at the clock and realized it was lunch break soon. He locked the kanohi room and exited the office with the feeling of achievment fresh in his mind.
To be continued....
I hope you like it!
