  1. Past hour
  2. IC: Vrill [Wise Man's Archive, The Backroom] The Cy-Toa contemplatively cocked his head to the side for a moment, poorly hiding an irritated yawn. He didn't need to look to Muirtagh - his gaze only drifted to the table's contents that Cyrix had been eyeing, all the while the gears turning in his head. If Cyrix didn't know why Vrill was doing what he was doing, there was a snowball's chance in Ta-Koro that he knew what Vrill was doing. Him being seen leaving the Sanctum? Plausible. But at the very least, this meant Cyrix hadn't been snooping in on Korzaa's office close enough to hear Vrill's tasking. That was what he needed to know. Even if Vrill's intuition was wrong (not that it ever would be) Fenn could verify it all later in more detail. The wonderful conundrum of bringing a Rode user along was Vrill needed to be extra careful of which truths he withheld - while he was about to lie to Cyrix's face, and could continue to do so all day, the agent was careful about his wording so as to not spin the wrong lie in front of his partner. After a small, disappointed sigh, Vrill looked Cyrix in the optics and gave him a straight answer. "You know why - the widgets." Vrill had been on one end or the other of enough interrogations to know that spinning Kane-Ra dung about innocence only locks the 'gator (As they sometimes called each other in the business) in more. Sometimes, you gotta tell them what they want to hear. Plainly speaking - Vrill had admitted to nothing, but perhaps that admission was the first step in getting Cyrix to make another slip.
  3. IC: Vekus - Spineless Bay Vekus was not pleased with her letter. She looked up at the messenger, his face impassive, before looking back down at the letter. She sighed aloud. Whatever the Broker’s judgement of her, she knew she was not… compromised. At least, not in this instance. After all, she reasoned, folding the letter and tucking it away. If he was truly doubtful, he would not have sanctioned this. "What are my orders?" she asked the other agent of the Broker. OOC: @GhosthandsVekus ready for new assignment from NPC agent.
  4. Today
  5. OOC: DOUBLE POST BECAUSE NEW SOFTWARE DOESNT LET US DELETE POSTS AND I POSTED A DRAFT ACCIDENTALLY IC: Kalzok - Squal Outskirts Kalzok smiled. The Broker was a reasonable man, after all. He thanked the messenger, a scrawny runt of a Skak, with a single mitt of currency. The kid smiled a toothy grin and disappeared. Kalzok got to his feet and packed his stuff, before exiting the abandoned hut for good. In the days since he'd waited for the message, Kalzok had toured the Squal, taking in the old sights and sounds of the benighted town. It was a rotting, decaying, broken mess; its zealots were as zealous as ever, its deprived as poor as ever and its 'fixers' as incompetent as ever. The processions in the past week had led to clashes between rival Nakihl cults that resulted in dozens of casualties. Home sweet home. Alas, it was a home he would have to leave. And soon, Kalzok told himself, as he hurried south, away from the shanty-tropolis and back to the coast. He took one more look back at the Squal before hurrying away from the angry mob of Nakihl attendants on the horizon, looking to avenge their casualties on one of the men who'd caused it. OOC: Kalzok to Westside to meet Broker
  6. OOC: sorry for the delay, but I'm finally free! @Visaru @Palm IC: Klidarg "Well? Who's first? Don't tell me you're too scared to fight?" Klidarg called out to the Skaks. Inwardly, he smiled at the blade-wife's plan. The leader of the Skakdi in the clearing, obviously bristling at the N'ashka's challenge. He dropped his makeshift spear and unsheathed a weapon from his back. Klidarg was surprised to realise he recognise it: a replica of Crescent Scythe, Nektann's legendary weapon. "I am Reekla, scion of Nektann:Dii. Chief and Warlord of this warband. I accept your challenge, Ash;tak. May the ancestors favour the worthy, and the defeated find a place in Kino-Ur," he repeated the customary challenge. Klidarg continued to keep an eye on the ambushers from behind, his bow still drawn. "Compatriots," Klidarg whispered. "If you are in need of my bow... call me." The Kaiakan felt a pang of excitement and even devious pleasure in the possibility of... unfair assistance. Enough that he almost forgot how unlike a Kaiakan this behaviour was. Almost.
  7. IC: Cyrix - Wise Man's Archive Backroom, Ko-Koro He's goading you, don't fall for it. Don't get into the weeds. He needed to set the theme. He sighed, pacing the room to close the space, as well as catch a glimpse of what the two had been working on. "Syzygos, I'm looking out for the interests of Ko-Koro." Truth. "I clocked you leaving the Sanctum. There was no record of you, or of anybody fitting your description, visiting the Archives; you're not a regular, I know them. You visited this library, agreed to enter the employ of Priicu, lingered here, and then left for Onu-Koro. And then, I presume, to Po-Koro," he said, glancing at the Fa-Toa. He had realized it as he moved; black underpinnings, and not much in the way of a harness for the axe on his back, not unlike his fellow Kalta, Casanuva. "And now you're back." Truth. "I know what you're doing. All I need to know is why." Lie. OOC: @BULiK @Goose

  9. Of those three, I had previously given a vote of support to only one of them (Working Mini Golf Course), so it was pretty easy for me to decide witch one to vote for in that poll. I look forward to seeing which one will win to become an official set.
  10. IC: Muir (Wise Man’s Archive, Backroom) Muir tried to enjoy the reprieve from doing the talking – Vrill, it seemed, had finally taken back the helm of his own investigation. But the room was a powder keg, and that well-honed Guardsman instinct refused to allow the lawyer to let his guard down. He wasn't quite sure what he had expected of Cyrix, or indeed what he made of him; but then, there was the benefit of observation. He was quite sure he'd get a chance to cross-examine once Vrill was done. In the meantime, he'd just try not to think about how badly he needed a smoke.
  11. You know it's a great birthday when you're at a go-cart event and "Move Along" from The All-American Rejects comes on. :D

  12. IC: Vrill [Wise Man's Archive, The Backroom] "The Sanctum?" Vrill appeared almost confused by the question. "Was there some kind of... security incident?"
  13. IC: Cyrix - Wise Man's Archive Backroom, Ko-Koro He let the pause settle into the room. Far more than any of the other Koros that Cyrix had visited, the silence that Ko-Koro fomented was unique. The three in the room could even hear any customers in the library leaving across the hall, and it was scarcely but a whisper and a scraping across the floors. "... What were you doing at the Sanctum before coming here, then leaving Ko-Koro earlier?" OOC: @BULiK @Goose
  14. Yesterday
  15. IC: Jolek Highwind An hour passed, and the lone hunter returned to the village gates, his paltry catch in hand and none walking by his side. A common sight for every guardsman and guardswoman on gatepost rotation. An empty grin and wave of the free hand later, and they allowed their roaming comrade back into the cage upon the lake. OOC: I'll be away for a few days, but the amnesiac punch guard is off duty and Open for Interaction.
  16. IC: Vrill [Wise Man's Archive, The Backrooms] "Questions..." In an unexpected turn of events, 'Syzygos' spoke. His diction was precisely slow, tone surprisingly aloof. Like Cyrix's own words had reminded him of some trivia long forgotten. This wasn't Vrill. "You said you had questions?"
  17. My favorite Billy Joel song is "The Ballad of Billy The Kid". After that Piano Man, then The Down Easter Alexa. My favorite album is The Stranger. What I like most about him is he has always written all his own songs, plays the piano, and puts all of himself into his performing. I've been a fan since 1974.
  18. The Book of Boba Fett theme sounds like something that would fit a lone Toa like Lesovikk I also feel like Making of a Cyborg fits early Bionicles mysteriousness.
  19. IC: Cyrix - Wise Man's Archive (Back Room), Ko-Koro When the Po-Koro toa's mask lit up, Cyrix met his gaze. Some sort of sensory augment kanohi. He wasn't scanning him for hidden weapons like an Akaku user would, despite the shape, and there were no rapid eye movements he'd associate with someone with Perception. He thought through the possibilities; Elda to see if anyone else was hiding possibly He doubted it was a Rau. It likely wasn't a mind-affecting mask, given that he could both tell it was on and that he was having these thoughts and didn't recognize any of the telltale signs like Vakua's Suletu; if the lawyer wore a mask of Truth, it would be ironic. Knowing this island, that gave it a pretty good chance. Be careful with what he said; give him nothing. Same deal as normal. "Convenient. Well, Mr. Po-Koro Lawyer, I'm acting in my capacity as guardian of Ko-Koro; I'm investigating your client, but I have no official warrant from the Sanctum." He shifted his right hand lower on his arm, closer to the lodestones behind his shield. "I'm pretty sure that takes care of at least one of your questions." Truth. His man, 'Syzygos', was there. He was looking at the door before he entered, so he had to have been expecting him; some sort of alternate detection? Perhaps that Arthron was being put to use, but the door had been closed. His armor was unusual; it didn't look to be metal. As he spoke, Cyrix shifted his weight to his other foot and cocked his head as he finished, seeing how the black-clad Toa's armor reflected light differently. It was all wrong for any metal he knew, more like... glass? Or crystal. He was familiar with it from when he had rescued Soraph, but this one didn't look like a Dasaka. Something Casanuva had told him when recovering was that he had briefly traveled with a Toa of Crystal that had altered her armor to mimic a Dasaka. His eyes darted back to the Po-Koro lawyer as he finished speaking. OOC: @BULiK @Goose
  20. IC: Vrill [Wise Man's Archive, The Backroom] After the brief flurry of conversation, Fenn and Vrill returned to their own studies. They each had much to think about. Vrill numbed his mind with a final review of his copy. A second pass, seeing the evidence he had already copied with fresh optics. He occasionally corrected a mistake. Vrill knew all about those. He wondered how many of his he could ever correct. People were never as easy as words. For all its incongruities, even language followed a set of rules. The same couldn't be said for those who spoke it, or the actions they performed. For a brief moment, Vrill tensed as he felt a sliver of empathy at the thought of a Toa who had failed so greatly being given a second chance. Like a cramp, eventually the sharp twinge of pathos subsided as Vrill refocused himself on his work. He finally compared the last page with his last tablet. 'United in Duty, bound in Destiny, this is the way of the Bionicle.' 'United in Duty, bound in Destiny, this is the way of the Bionicle.' Duty... Exhale. Look up. Push feelings down. Let senses rise in their place. One with the structures around him. Something new. Vrill felt a new lightstone and heatstone. Someone was in the lobby. The Cy-Toa closed the book in front of him. The crystals were moving closer. Vrill stretched his neck with a satisfactory pop. He looked to the door, waiting for the footsteps to arrive and for Cyrix to follow. "Cyrix, Toa Kalta. I have some questions for you." “Funny, we could say something similar.” "He's my lawyer," the obsidian-armored Toa said. The face behind the crystal arthron-shaped Kanohi was blank, his gaze only deviating from being locked with Cyrix when he initially glanced at the Le-Toa's equipment.
  21. Looks pretty; well done, OP! Where did you get this kit?
  22. Has anyone mentioned "Bring Me To Life" by Evanesence yet? Pretty much the most bionicle song out there and so classic!!
  23. IC: Ushadra "Echelon's ambitions led him to rise above the shadows where our strength lies," she agreed. Her image stepped off the ground and proceeded to hover alongside Eisen, her true footfalls muted with her power. A playful use of her power, but also one that kept her alert and practiced her skills, power warmed up and prepared for trouble. "Ahh, 'scout', how I love the word," she sang softly, her smile ever etched onto the image she showed, slightly widening at the prospect. "A task so uniquely suited to my skills. Do elaborate, partner of mine; I am at your behest."
  24. IC: Priicu - Wise Man's Archive, Ko-Koro old town @Keeper of Kraata@BULiK@Goose The Matoran librarian sat still, eyes closed and steadying his breathing in Ko-Koronan meditation for a moment, finding his usual stoicism returning. He debated whether or not he should be observing the goings-on in the back room, and ultimately arrived at the conclusion that, yes, he should. It was his library, and he wanted truth. He left his desk and hung the "sorry, we're closed" sign on the door, then called quietly to Osru, the De-Matoran who worked for him along with Saat. Easily heard by the Sonics-aligned individual in the silence of the library, he was soon joined by his employee. "If anyone is still in the library, please have them leave due to an emergency. If they bought a day pass, refund them. When Saat returns, inform him that the two of you have the rest of the day off." When Osru expressed his concern, he reassured him, "It's more to put my mind at ease than anything else. Toa Cyrix may have to issue an arrest, and I would rather there be nobody in his way if it comes to that." Accepting the half-truth, the Matoran and his boss soon had the library empty, and the front door locked, leaving Priicu alone with the Toa. Satisfied, he hastened to the back room, making a little extra noise so he wouldn't take anyone off-guard. OoC: This whole process would have taken 5-10 minutes, so continue posting without waiting for me, until I decide to insert- or else have to open the door for Niici.
  25. IC: Caana (Hanaloi, Forest) Caana smiled, warmly. The Dashi’s enthusiasm was charming. “They are – were – family heirlooms. To hear them tell it, the Tonfa were carved from the wings of dragons, and the armour harvested from their scales.” The Ronin’s tone betrayed her skepticism; neither looked anything like they had come from a Kanohi Dragon. “The staff, on the other hand, I claimed from a defeated Rahkshi.” OOC: @Mel @Keeper of Kraata
  26. IC: Muir (Wise Man’s Archive) "Maybe they were afraid of creating an army they couldn't control, empowering subordinates who could make a power grab. Antidermis isn't loyalty, it's corruption and decay - that cuts both ways." Vrill paused. "... or maybe they just didn't have enough antidermis or time to make their next move. Didn't want their Patero to go off at half pressure." “Neither option adds up for me. Those seem like exactly the type of mistakes Makuta’s followers are known to make – after all, the invasion of Ko-Koro was itself a product of hubris and a failure to think ahead. No, we’re missing something… with any luck, the answers are in these pages, but I’m beginning to think that the only person with the information we need might be the very man we’re investigating.” Still, Muir continued reading, undaunted. Much simply refreshed that which he already knew – how Infection worked, copycat cases such as the well poisoning in Po-Koro some years ago. The latter interested him; it didn’t have the same reach as Ahkmou’s plague, despite the more effective delivery system. A benefit of Po-Koro’s past experience, or evidence for his theory? He had only begun to examine the accounts of Ko-Koro’s invasion and occupation – strange, he thought, that the descriptions of Echelon were so different from others he had read – when Cyrix’s footsteps alerted him to the Toa’s approach. "Cyrix, Toa Kalta. I have some questions for you." “Funny,” Muir said, glancing up from his work. He had activated his mask the moment he noticed Cyrix's presence. “We could say something similar.” OOC: @Keeper of Kraata @BULiK
  27. Thank you for your contribution.
  28. IC: Cyrix - Wise Man's Archive, Ko-Koro Cyrix narrowed his eyes as he glanced at the back room. A lawyer from Po-Koro? This was certainly getting complicated. He wondered if Niici had picked up on his hint about meeting him here. The Le-Toa noticed that Priicu was stiff, his words clipped and quiet. "Don't worry, I'm not going to escalate." Unless I have to, he mentally amended. "And if they try anything, I have backup. And if one of them is a lawyer, he'll know better than to try anything... rash. Thanks for the heads up, by the way; I'm going to talk to them." He knew he couldn't entirely trust what they had told Priicu, but still, a Po-Koro lawyer was an odd cover story. He was likely either desperate for a lie... or simply telling the truth. The implications of the latter were most unusual. Syzygos had likely visited Onu-Koro, and Po-Koro was one trek away. A patent lawyer to aid industrial sabotage? Possibly. But again: why a toa? He'd have answers, even if they were false ones, soon enough. Cyrix eased on his Volitak to make his approach silent, only ceasing it once he had started entering the back room. Glancing between the two toa, he relaxed and crossed his arms. "Cyrix, Toa Kalta. I have some questions for you." OOC: @ARROW404 @Goose @BULiK
