  1. I went into seeing Into the Spiderverse with no expectations (neither high nor low, just a general Spidey fan), and I was blown away and thrilled and absolutely loved it. I'm not one to usually notice artistic style, but everything about it was "Wow!". Great soundtrack, got some genuine laughs, I really liked it. I'm also a sucker for old pixel-y fantasy RPG computer games, so I've played some of those on and off through the years. (Pokemon Insurgence, Pokemon Zeta, Aveyond, and some old Bionicle fan games from the archive here). Like others in this thread, I've been following MCU and Star Wars, although the MCU is getting pretty cumbersome to follow and I haven't seen much past Shang Chi. I also have picked up DnD and my husband is prepping to run his first homebrew this fall, so that's exciting IDK if baking, knitting, and teaching count as franchises I've gotten into, or just "real life", but the immersion into the craft feels analogous to how "into" the Bionicle universe I was, back in the day.
  2. You know what? I completely forgot that this wasn't the same alternate universe where alternate Tuyet was in charge. What do you think stopped Teridax from taking over the Great Spirit Robot after Mata Nui's death?
  3. Very dynamic poses, and I didn't expect to like the black and brown together so much - very menacing effect! Super cool!
  4. I really enjoyed this. I thought your portrayal of each of the characters was well done and completely believable. Makes me want to go back and read the whole Island of Doom arc. I also liked the little bits sprinkled in about how the Matoran are each working through what returning to the forgotten Metru Nui means to them - that they have thousands of years of personal history in the place, but they don't remember it. Must be a bit trippy, and those were great details to add. Great work, and I'd love to read more from you!
  5. Every time this artwork floats to the top of gallery forum again, I find a new little bit to love - amazingly detailed and I love both the art style and the wry humor used to work in all the references and easter eggs. Really stellar stuff.
  6. Happy belated! You bring creative consistency and very sweet positivity to many members here, myself included. I hope you know how appreciated you are
  7. I can't say anything new that hasn't already been said - I agree that the effect logically would be/should be temporary, especially that emotions are pretty naturally temporary. What jumped to mind with the wording of that power specifically was Axonn's ability to cure insanity. Although that's not a temporary effect, it seemed similar in that it regulates a state of heightened disequilibrium. Perhaps both provide a sort of jolt or emotional reset of sorts.
  8. Hi Mushy! Beautiful work as always - I especially love how perfectly the blue matches Jasmine's blue! As someone who just got back from the arts and crafts store looking for a specific shade of fabric, I am amazed. That's an awesome dream of making your own extravagant bridal gown, and I'd say you're well along on the way to achieving that dream
  9. Word. And I agree - if I could have expanded content on Lhikan's team and the Toa Hagah (pre-mutation), that would be sweet. I think Jovan's team and Lesovikk's team also would be interesting, both set in an earlier MU and the fact that they purportedly had non-traditional elements represented. But character-wise, I'd definitely like to see more of the Toa Mangai. And that said, now that I think about it, I'd also love more stories of the early Toa Mata on Daxia and in Karda Nui. I think there was a bit about how Dume chose to stay in ruined Metru Nui to slowly fix the city with his little Kiril while everybody else migrated topside. I think that says something, whether it be dedication to the city itself, or his idea of recompense, or dodging leadership responsibility, or what have you. I definitely agree that how he ran Metru Nui was very different than how the Turaga Metru had their Koros set up, but how much of that difference in lifestyle and governance stems from geography? Smaller villages of Matoran who are largely focused on survival and have limited technology and contact with one another seem easier to govern than the paragon metropolis at top of the world. I'll have to go back and read the story parts about the Kanohi Dragon and stuff, I remember really liking it. I know I'd like to interpret his refusing help from the Dark Hunters as a matter of principle and maybe common sense (the Piraka don't strike me as particularly savvy ambassadors to forge an alliance? but who knows, maybe Dume was just racist against Skakdi). Of course, how I'd like to interpret things only matters so much, and you may be totally right.
  10. Chaotic Neutral half-orc Artificer (artillerist subclass), if I had to choose off the top of my head and with limited DnD experience. Maybe not the most efficient combination, but I think the Artificer class covers Avak's penchant for fighting with gadgets and weapon mods, and it gives him access to some spells, since the Skakdi species have eye beams and some kind of mind power that varies on individuals.
  11. Thank you! Haha, I do plan to get back to finishing the entire story when life calms down eventually (hopefully?). Knowing that people are still finding the content interesting and ideally, entertaining, is really nice to know and good motivation to pick it back up
  12. Absolutely loving the Mer-toran design. I don't think it's anything I'd tried imagining, and it's 110% cooler than anything I could imagine. I also like the story implication that the Mutagen effects are so dramatic that no wonder the Matoran down there had kind of lost all hope of going back to their old "normal". Love content like this, keeps the characters fresh and alive for us all
  13. This is so cool! I've always liked the big franchise mosaic projects I've seen - to see this translated into a franchise closer to my heart is awesome! Thank you and best of luck keeping up the great work!
  14. This round was so much more difficult! Jaller & Hahli are the only sets I have (Mahri & Matoran forms), so obviously I love them. But based on how they're bracketed (Nokama Metru/Jaller Mahri/the other one) Nokama always wins for me, no matter how cool I think the underwater Arthron is (and in my favorite colors, no less!) Reading in the Legends of Metru Nui books, when new Toa Nokama saves the day and rescues all the boys on her team who didn't listen to her in The Darkness Below was embarrassingly formational for me back in the day 😍😂
  15. This is fun - I voted no based on the conlang project from outofgloom (see some of his work here on his blog) that expands Matoran into its own, functional language with its own grammar and such. While he doesn't use the circles and dots writing transliteration, it is a complex system of roots and stems and grammar that I've not yet learned. That said, at one point I did know the circles/dots transliteration for our English alphabets, but frankly, writing so many circles was annoying and very impractical, orthographically speaking. Writing that way is one thing, but reading fluently is another.
