  1. In SKE in January 2020, Knichou is Knichou. This is during the playthrough of that game. By the end of SKA, Knichou has become Artahka's vessel in full. Moving again into SKE with an eye for details regarding the changes caused by Great Spirits, we see once again Knichou is Knichou, and simultaneously he is Artahka's vessel. This is the power of ascendant wishes. EDIT: I have begun collecting and running the data for the trilogy. Here's a little peak behind the curtain:
  2. Thank you Smudge for those really kind words. I never thought someone would say SK would be in their mythological canon of Bionicle. I'm honored. Snelly, please know that the loot from Skyra's Far Shore Adventure is coming once I have time to get it written up and posted. Questions round up: Xemnas, you asked if I'll run another game on BZPOWER. The short and honest answer is I don't know. Stay tuned, I guess. Same goes for you too Daniel, but it looks like Bulik might have a little treat in store (lovely hype trailer btw). Nuparu's mask is purple because he's from a different reality. For more about his connection with the vahki and Ehlek's Flying Fortress, check out Nuparu's first lines of dialogue in Escapement. Believe it or not, a large majority of Escapement contains heavy spoilers or seeded clues for future reveals in Rebirth and Apocalypse. The Great Spirit Artahka is Knichou. It's a little more complicated, but that's the easy answer. Definitely not something I expected to happen, but a joy to watch occur. There were several riteborn that were scrapped due to a consistent player request for less time on expansions and more time on posting in the IC topic. Also, I reduced my dedicated weekly time spent GMing SK from 40 hours to 20 hours to 5-10 hours. PMs, interaction requests, planning, reading, and approvals take time. Please use design elements from Six kingdoms games only with my prior written permission. These design elements include any original rules posted in the Rules topic for Escapement, Rebirth, and Apocalypse With that said, please feel free to use the base rules minus any expansions for the character profile system in any future games you may want to run on BZPower. Minions seem useful, enjoy them if it suits your future needs. If you haven't taken the Post Game Survey, please do so. It means the world to me. Be back soon with more answers. Also, hey there Caedast, Whira, Whisper, Sorilax, Miserix, and Icarax. Hope you're doing well with your newfound sense of identity.
  3. POST GAME SURVEY HELLO EVERYONE! It's time for the honored tradition of survey taking! As a treat, this one's just about SKA, but keep an eye on this topic for a chonky survey about the trilogy as a whole. If you played SKA even a little bit, we'd love to hear from you in the survey linked above.
  4. IC: Reliable Narrator | Kini-Nui The Makoki Stone was completed. The land returned to it once was, and then more lush and green, more fertile and blue, more alive than ever before. The winds of Whisper's change carried the knowledge controlled by Caedast, and Whira held the dreams close and safe of those within the Time Between Time. Sorilax flowed through it all, the binding for the unending tapestry of life. And The Drawer Opened. The light was blinding. Tren Krom had arrived at last... IC: Great Spirit Icarax, Mata Nui Ascendant The aspect looked at the large, curved display in front of him and let out a deep sigh, and reached for the coffee cup next to the keyboard. As soon as the cup was in hand, Icarax noticed it was empty and promptly put it back on the table. It was too late now to get a refill anyway. Rest was needed and it was earned. They felt very tired, eyes burning from looking at the screen for so many days in a row now. But it was done, everything was there, and in time too. Icarax felt rather satisfied. This was what they’d been working for for so long. They made doubly sure that the automatic save feature backed the document up to the cloud, then saved a copy to a USB drive and closed ‘SK: E/R/A’ and switched over to excel, where a massive spreadsheet was waiting. Nearly every cell was filled with information, most of them dates, and most of them had been checked off. Some were marked in red, for things that had not made it to fruition in time, others in yellow for the ones that had, but were delayed. The majority was in green. Green was also the color Icarax chose for the last remaining cell to not be checked yet. The aspect selected the fill tool and moved it to the cell, coloring it green as well. Status: Complete. They closed the spreadsheet as well, then quickly typed up a mail. “Hey boss, Just got done with the story. Everything’s ready for your presentation tomorrow. I left a copy for you on your desk. I think we’ve got a winner on our hands this time. Cheers, Iccy” Then they closed their workstation, placed the thumb drive on another desk in the area, grabbed their messenger bag and headed out, bidding the Rahkshi standing security that night in the reception goodnight.Icarax felt good. I wonder what tomorrow will bring... End of an E/R/A To learn what happens next in the game of Six Kingdoms, you can enjoy Six Kingdoms: Escapement here.
  5. Your wish, Great Spirit Whisper, Mata Nui Ascendant of Change, is granted. You are as you wish: a mortal beauty or an immortal terror. You are a Great Spirit of Change, and you shall live within every moment of The Truth. Sincerely, The Gms. EDIT: Six Kingdoms has Officially Ended. Thank you all for joining me, Vezok's Friend, and Eyru on this journey. This topic will remain open for the near future to communicate regarding Six Kingdoms, to let the Great Spirits have a little chat in their office, and to generally celebrate! Cheers, UN.
  6. IC: Grime | The Legend He recited the final words, passed the final trial and rites of the Winding Walk, but not alone. She was bound to him again, and he was bound to her. They shared their knowledge and walked hand in hand from the darkness of the deepest night to the brightest light of The Truth. Grime was himself again, renewed with purpose, bound in apostasy, and forever the pilot destined for the stars. “You have your wish now,” Grime said as he raised his hands towards the light in the darkness. Miserix wished for what she could, bound now by those who’d ascended before and guided by her vessel. She was his pilot, and he was her pilot. He was her ark from the Mangaia, and she was his from the Time Between Time He remembered the day so long ago on the beach. Strangers wandered up and seemed confused. They called him by a name he gave, a random name chosen for no real reason. Then they fought each other and left him alone with his drink and the waves lapping at the surf. He died soon after. He liked that name. It was the first time he remembered being called something other than the dirt beneath one’s heel. He held it in his mind and found it all the more compelling. From the storybook of memories he took the name and claimed it as his own And from within The Legend Miserix claimed her wish once more: May we find the end in the beginning, and the beginning in the end.
  7. You wish, dearest Sorilax, is granted. You shall be the Great Spirit of The Living Legend. You shall know all life, and touch it with your intent. You shall bring those to you who endeavor in your ways, and shall forever learn what Life means in all its endless stories. You shall be the living energy that is The Legend. Welcome Great Spirit Sorilax, Mata Nui Ascendant.
  8. IC: Reliable Narrator | Kini-Nui Skyra was there. And with a mountain of loot. Nuju, however, was not. He floated in the Far Shore, lost in the junk and the dust of The Truth and stuffed away in the back corner of the drawer. He could do nothing. He could not escape. He’d been banished to the horrible little hole he’d crawled from, and sat in eternal hatred of Stannis, the Lizard King. He would crawl back to the living one day. He’d done it before, and he would always do it again. HE found his way through the cycles to return from death, to seduce those to explore and collect those items that might keep him forever real. But for now, he was dust in the darkness of a forgotten filing cabinet, left slightly ajar by a very sleepy Game Master. OOC: @SnellyCongratulations on returning from your Far Shore Adventure. You may have missed a prompt or two, but you got back and that’s what matters right? Just in time for the next cycle...
  9. IC: Reliable Narrator | Mi-Kiri, Elemental Temple of Light Sorilax watched the death and he felt the passing of the world into a new creation. He felt life budding and blossoming. He was that life. He watched the golden light of the Ignika as it radiated throughout the temple, and he stepped into his impossible machine forever passing from one fractal's point to another as he achieved the only wish he'd truly die for: life. OOC: congratulations @Kal the Guardian on completing your Grand Wish.
  10. IC: Ehlek | Ehlek’s Flying Fortress, The Asylum They teleported to the mental signature and immediately Vashni unleashed her most potent mutation. She didn't see the space around her or the horrors of the asylum that Ehlek made his abode. She felt blood trickling down her face. Blood from her optics and audio receptors, and in her mind was only a single thought: Lizard. And so there were many, many lizards. They exploded from Ehlek, and multiplied across time and space as the Makoki Stone sustaining Ehlek’s life sustained theirs. They wandered throughout realities with broken knowledge of The Truth, cursed to obfuscate so that only Caedast, Mata Nui Ascendant of Knowledge, might reveal the way of the cycles in time. OOC: @Snelly, lizard is it.
  11. We grant your wish, Great Spirit Caedast, Mata Nui Ascendant of Knowledge and Control. All that is known shall be known, in this Cycle and the next. All that transpired will be remembered. New things can be uncovered, there will always be mystery in the world, but no longer will there be the ignorance of the past: for you shall carry it. You shall stand at the center of all timelines, and you shall be arbiter of all knowledge in all cycles.
  12. IC: Grime | The Winding Walk, Step 3 “You never loved me as I loved you,” said Grime. Miserix did not recoil. He reached out his hand and felt the shadows of her true self. “I have given you all I have, twice. Thrice. I have suffered for centuries, forsaken my name, died and lived, and died, and lived all for you. So what was it for?” “To see it all over again as it should be,” Miserix replied. “To birth us as many times as it took. As many arks as were needed. To survive.” “No,” Grime said as he gripped her form and pulled her close. “Not this time. This time, it’s my way. You will be mine this time. You will make us free this time. You will flee forever, keeping us save. No more Tren Krom. No more disasters and chaos by your whim. You will birth our age of glory. You will carry the legacy of the pain we’ve endured into a new time. And in return I shall save you. I shall let you in me, and I will let you breathe through my lungs again and hold my muscles in your hands so that I dance as your puppet. But you will be mine this time, or you will linger here and see no birth again.”
  13. IC: Mantax, Ehlek, Nuparu | Ehlek’s Flying Fortress The claymore of Patiwairutiki crushed through the skull of Mantax, embedding him into the walls of the power generator core of the fortress and shattered the glass pane of the room where Vashni, Nale, Aurax, Otis, and Hiripaki were trapped. The electo-magnetic energy increased in its frequency and power without the protective glass, and the laser walls were EMPed into disrepair. One more, Kilo had cut the head off the beast. Vashni felt her head splitting in pain as she searched for the sneaky little technomancer, but she found him! He had hidden himself somewhere in the Asylum, she realized, for she felt Knichou’s mind was closer to her than Ehlek’s. But Hiripaki found him first: she found his location and began a violent cyber war against the barraki, locking the partially machine warlord in a duel that took all his concentration. Hiripaki knew if she let up, even for a moment, she would be completely and utterly destroyed. She'd never faced such an opponent, not even Caedast her Welcome One. OOC: @EmperorWhenua, @pokemonlover360, @Tarn, @BULiK, @Snelly, @Toru Nui
  14. IC: Reliable Narrator | The Legend Stannis stood there on the sixth step. He recited the stanza, and said his prayer, and the world about him paused. He knew then of The Truth. He stood within the threads of fate and felt them with his hands. He saw the tapestry, and the tapestry saw him for what he was and always would be: a wanderer. But the tapestry of fate needed a little nudge. It needed one thing Caedest alone could provide: control. ooc: @EmperorWhenua
  15. IC: Kanohi Ignika | Mi-Kiri Life, Creation, and Time. They were there. The components of the impossible machine Sorilax glimpsed in the chaos prior. He looked at them, and his duplicate came to the mask and overtook it as he’d done moments before. The Mask knew they were different, but the offer remained for they were also the same: A life for a world. Sorilax’s life for a world made renewed. The kanohi Ignika offered an incredible reward for a terrible price. What was the weight of a life against the remaking of the world? He had created the entry point to the impossible machine. Perhaps this was the last death the world would know... @Kal the Guardian, that is your 6th milestone completed. Should Sorilax confirm the sacrifice of his life, then I believe that's his ascension? IC: Nuju | Timeline C "Skyra... What are you doing," Nuju said calmly, but there was a strange malice in his gaze and he stood up from where he'd been sitting. It didn't make him much taller. OOC: @Snelly, @Tarn, @~Xemnas~, @EmperorWhenua
  16. IC: Miserix | The Winding Walk of the Mangaia Stannis passed her in pilgrimage, and she scowled as best a shadow with three oily eyes could scowl. She watched him leave in fury, unable to stop him, and unable to learn from his actions. Time spiraled for her. It had been spiraling for so long. A matoran approached in the infinity of stars. He had walked the first three steps alone, alive, and in bitterness. “Hello,” said Grime.
  17. IC: Nuju | Timeline C "That is unfortunate," Nuju said with a sigh and looked at Skyra. It was her time to shine again. OOC: @Snelly, @Tarn, @~Xemnas~, @EmperorWhenua
  18. IC: Nuju | Timeline C - The Great Telescope Nuju nodded and retracted his hand. He started the the Stannis of this world and considered what was different. The answer surprised him: not much. "Stannis of this land, I will spare you the trouble of deceit. I wish you ill intent. I wish to take your mask back to where it belongs and destroy it so you may never access the Time Between Time again. You have caused ruptures and rifts throughout realities. You have destroyed timelines with brazen disregard for the lives of those who exist within them. I have hunted you for a long time. I will ask nicely once, and please understand I mean this with the utmost respect for your world that has fallen apart when I say this: give us back what was stolen. Return the mask of The Legend." OOC: @Snelly, @EmperorWhenua, @Tarn, @~Xemnas~
  19. IC: Irnakk, Great Spirit of Nightmares | Irnakk’s Tooth As Jojax crawled the the erupting volcano and roared their triumphant return, they then immediately did the first thing no one would expect but everyone immediately would realize they should have expected: The tahtorak attacked the mountain With a roar and blasts of psionic energy Jojax began leveling the sacred mountain of the Skakdi, until with an equally bestial roar the god of Nightmares at last appeared upon the plane of the Time Between Time. “You! Have! Made! Me! Mad!” Irnakk yelled. He stood the height of his foe, and his chains of flame whipped outwardly towards the destructive tahtorak. “You are my toy! You serve me! Attack them, destroy them,” Irnakk said and pointed to the south towards the valley of the builders and their sacred temple of Kini-Nui. It would be a day’s travel for a matoran to walk from Irnakk’s Tooth to Kini-Nui, but for a tahtorak? Not long at all. OOC: @Smudge8
  20. IC: Nuju | Timeline C, The Great Temple Nuju greeted them all in turn politely. At last he said; "Stannis, may I see you mask?" He held his hand out expectantly. OOC: @Snelly, @Tarn, @~Xemnas~, @EmperorWhenua
  21. IC: Nuparu | Ehlek's Flying Fortress, Asylum Pre-Processing "You are kind," Nuparu said with a sad smile. "That is new to me. I'm sorry that you don't understand, but I don't either. You all think I am some amazing engineer, and maybe one day I can be, but all I know is I just finished my apprenticeship and then I was snatched by machines that look like you and brought here. I've been recycled so many times. I don't even remember now everything I used to know. All I know is that I don't know. Take me with you, please" Nuparu said as he looked between the turaga and the vahki squad mother. "Wherever you're going has to be better than here." OOC: @BULiK, @Toru Nui
  22. Congratulations, there are now 5 Makoki Stones (4 real, 1 proxy) in the wall. That means the map goes back to this (minus the elemental temples)
  23. IC:Reliable Narrator | Kini-nui Young Mazor slotted the Krom Sphere in the Wall of Prophecy, and strangely it worked! With an intense burst of energy the sphere began to fill a section of the missing space, as if a proxy for a piece that should be in the place it now rested. Katrin Nuva Proxima brought her fragment to the wall as well. It fit! The world became a little more normal as mountains returned and oceans receded. OOC: @Smudge8 Hey apologies for missing this until now, but at that time the island would have regained one map’s worth of territory. The Krom Sphere was always a proxy option. Also The Ultimo scorp nice job getting that makoki stone fragment back to Kini-Nui… again. XD
