Happy Birthday to GSR
Toa Imrukii posted a topic in Completely Off TopicToday is GSR's birthday. Let us all wish him a good one! And from me. Happy Birthday GSR! Have a great day dude.
Just a quick question here that I hadn't really thought of before. It might've been answered in canon somewhere, but I don't remember; what is the purpose of Rahi in/on the GSR? Most "highly sentient" beings (Matoran, Toa, etc.) serve various purposes, but I can't really think of any for Rahi, especially since some Rahi endangered some of the "highly sentient" beings. Any thoughts?
G2 And The Sci-Fi Turn
Pohaturon posted a topic in Bionicle DiscussionThis topic is somewhat inspired by the one about what G1 would have been like if the story never left the island of Mata-Nui. So in G1, the first three years, despite being about Biomechanical beings which, let's face it, almost every young 'un incessantly called robots, was more of a fantasy affair than sci-fi. You had a tropical village, primarily melee weapons based on medieval technology, a tribal society, mysticism and ancient artifacts. Yes yes, you can have all that in a sci-fi story as well. I'd like this topic not to debate the range and definition of the terms sci-fi and fantasy, so let's stick to the very basic definition of sci-fi = technology and futuristic stuff/ fantasy = mystical/old-tech stuff. Anyhow, G1 took a decidedly Sci-Fi turn in 2004 and never really ditched it until 2009 with the more... "primitive" Bara Magna setting. Metru-Nui introduced all kinds of cool technology in '04 and '05, the highly industrialized depiction of Voya Nui in '06 and freaking semi-auto ranged weaponry also is a bit more on the Sci-Fi side, '07 had high-tech submarines and do I need to even speak of '08? So seeing as there is a pretty good chance G2 isn't going away in 2017, let's, for the sake of discussion assume it sticks around for at least as long as G1. Now, so far G2 has opted for the more fantasy-oriented theme of the early years of G1. However, what if it stays here? What if G2 never makes the switch to sci-fi? Would you be interested in seeing a longer saga with a more low-tech fantasy atmosphere to it? We know there is an airship that Ekimu uses, but that can still err on the side fantasy with some stretch. Now, it would certainly make travel between the other islands easier. While we don't know how large the planet is, it is safe to assume that with that level of tech (let's assume the "elemental blasters" are like magic and stuff), traveling to another continent by boat would be a lengthy affair. Either way, I'd love to see G2 evolve into having a larger scale story spanning various islands that were mostly isolated up until then, and the contact between them leads to tension/war. In the meantime some over-reaching enemy is gathering which threatens all islands, and the goal of the Toa is to create a stable alliance between them to face the coming attack. We could see a diverse range of cultures and set designs, with a wide range of non-Okotoan species. Would you prefer if G2 took a similar sci-fi turn as G1, or do you like the low-tech tribal atmosphere of early G1 and current G2?
sunflower posted a topic in General ArtThis this took way too long to complete, glad it's finished, though. And yes, the text does say something. Drawn completely in photoshop. I've always loved the science fiction aspect that the later story of Bionicle took on, and with the up and coming generation, I suppose this could be thought as homage to the story we had before. (Clicky for the link, warning, file is over 9 mb in size.) And here's a version without the text. C&C appreciated.
It's somebody's birthday today!
