The Story So Far
fishers64 posted a topic in Games & TriviaFrom VERSUS 2's Team MEGA-ORB (Pulse, Kopekemaster, ShadowVezon, Unit, Vrokorta, and possibly other contributors), this is: Welcome, fellow weavers of extravagant tales of Bionicle lore. The Bionicle story team has convened all of you to write the next Bionicle story. Unfortunately, there is a catch. The story must be typed out in sections, and each of the continuing sections must be voted on by the entire group. Rounds: Part 1: Submit your continuation In this part of the round, any member who stops by this topic may type up a paragraph to continue the story after the The Story So Far (see below). Your paragraphs may be serious, wacky, comedic, or anything else you want them to be - the sky is the limit! You will have 24 hours (from the time on this post, etc) to submit your paragraphs. Part 2: Vote on the submitted paragraphs After the paragraph-submitting portion of the round has ended, you will have 24 hours to vote for which paragraph will be added to the The Story So Far. Evaluation of the paragraphs and providing reasoning behind your vote is encouraged! -Rules: ---Has to be a paragraph, so it has to be more than just one sentence, but not be something fifteen sentences long. ---Has to be written as a story, so no role-playing. Characters, if any, do not belong to anyone. ---Cannot simply disregard previous stuff without a good explanation. ---Don't be a sore loser. ---Don't plagiarise. ---Please distinguish your paragraph submission from the rest of your post/commentary. The Story So Far: The Toa who had no name stepped onto the final jutting rock of the ledge, looking out over the plains of Po-Wahi. They had no name because they had left it behind, abandoned it because they no longer deserved one. They were merely a traveller, now, an observer of the way things went on around them without participating themself. That was the plan, the intention. To observe, but not to interfere. It had been so long since they had last acted they had forgotten most of themself, now reduced to a mere observer. They heard the wind breeze over the sand, they saw the sand move along with the wind, they felt the sand flying into their body as it was carried by the wind. A sandstorm was coming. It was time to move, to travel onwards. They jumped off the ledge and landed lightly, flattening the dried shrub below them with a soft crunch. ------------------------------------ What will happen next? Go! 24 hours starts now.
Voltex posted a topic in Games & TriviaBack in 2009, a BZPower member named Zeero first hosted a game called The BZPower Challenge. It was popular enough to garner two sequels, although the third never really got started. It was one of the more unique games in the forum, but the likes of it had not been seen since - until I revived the concept last year with a little game called VERSUS. Yes, the all-caps is necessary. When VERSUS ended, I knew that I would want to revisit it someday, to improve and expand upon it. That day has finally come. HOW IT WORKS After all of the spots have been filled, the game will begin with a “Round Zero”, in which a series of 50 trivia questions based upon either Bionicle or BZPower itself will be asked. The first player to answer a question correctly will receive two points; the three players with the highest number of points at the end of the round shall be named as the Captains of three teams. The Captains will then enter into a group PM with myself selecting their team members one by one from the remaining players. The player with the highest score after Round Zero will begin drafting first. Once the teams are decided, the game will begin in full with team-based challenges beginning in Round One. Each round, I will judge the results of the challenge and decide a winner – the losing teams will then be forced to vote out of their members, eliminating that player from the game. At a certain point in the game, all teams will be dissolved and the game will become a free for all. After this, the final player to complete each task will be eliminated from the game. Once only three players remain in the game, I shall gather all of the eliminated players to vote for the winner. THE RULES 1 - Do not contact me about the game outside of BZPower. 2 - Twists may be activated during the game; said twists are not described in this post because they are a surprise! 3 - Feel free to ask any other questions here. 4 - Other BZP rules apply, as usual.

The Dangers of Desperation
fishers64 posted a topic in Short StoriesAurora, otherwise known as “The Cat”, considered the situation in front of him. He had not learned how to hack into the New Atero computer mainframe and rise to the top of the local crime ring by taking foolish chances. And this one could be a really bad one. In front of him were two Matoran, Hue and Kan, who had built one of Spherus Magna’s finest superweapons. It was a gun that combined the powers of plasma and shadow. According to them, they were trying to sell the weapon to one iBrow Voltex in exchange for a favor. What The Cat was trying to conceal was that Voltex didn’t trust the pair to deliver, and had hired The Cat to steal it. Except that another pair of thieves, hired by the evil villain XT4, had stolen it before Aurora could get there. Further complicating matters, the Hero Factory was fast on the trail of XT4. If the Hero Factory found the weapon before he got to it, the chances of him getting it were slim. The Cat didn’t know how much time he had left. “Please help us” begged Hue. “We’ll do anything. We just want to go home.” “You see” said Aurora. “XT4 has a vault, which is where he keeps his valuables. He has a routine – he’s also overconfident. His vault is dangling over an active volcano and surrounded by an electric force field. So just step on over here…” The two Matoran obeyed, and the Cat flipped a switch. In a swirl of light, the two Matoran became one. “That will do nicely,” said The Cat. * * * “This is Tahukan the TaVo Matoran” said The Cat. “He will be of use on your mission.” The addled Matoran nodded. Some lingering affection for Voltex, in Kan, combined with the disdain of Hue to cause confusion. Voltex was a friend? He looked at the Cat, who had turned back to his computer screen and was running a new program. He decided that he was a dangerous enemy, and one best avoided. He followed Voltex out.

The Spherus Magna Hat Wars“I said, listen up!” yelled Atakus, slamming his sword into the metal table with a loud clang. The large group of Rock Agori in front of him plunged into dead silence. “Please, Atakus.” The owner of the factory, named Amicala, whispered. “Don’t be so harsh.” “You want the thieves caught?” said Atakus, quickly turning to face her. Amicala nodded weakly. Atakus turned around. “Last night, the specialized head coverings we were making for Agori and Glatorian disappeared. Or, if you prefer, the “hats”, as you prefer to call them, are gone. That means that somebody walked into this factory, took all of our hats, and made off with them.” “Perhaps to sell out to one of our competitors?” said one Agori innocently. “Nobody enters or leaves this factory without me knowing about it.” said Atakus, glaring at him. “And nobody entered or left this factory that isn’t in this room. That means…”Atakus gestured with the sword for emphasis, “one of you made off with them.” The Agori looked at each other nervously. “And that means that nobody is leaving this room until I know who did it.” Amicala looked heartbroken. “Atakus, the factory” she said. “Who will run it?” Atakus glared. “You want more things to be stolen?” Amicala shook her head no. “Then help me.” Seeing that no Agori were moving to confess, Atakus opened the only door to the room, let Amicala through, and slammed the door behind him. He locked it using the seven locks he had rigged especially for this occasion. “Is that really necessary?” Amicala said. “I am going to get to the bottom of this.” Atakus said, turning around and sighting down his sword, “and I will use any means possible to achieve my goal. Do I have to repeat myself five hundred times? I used to work for Stronius, and those days were glorious. Now my job is being threatened by a bunch of scarabax in Tajun!” A TV flared to life on the factory floor, “Today, Tajun’s Textiles, the number one source for Agori clothing and accessories, posted its third week of increasing profits.” A shot of Tajun’s fancy logo appeared on the screen, completely with some Agori partying. “Meanwhile, its leading competitor, Amicala’s Articles, posted its third week of losses.” Cut to a gloomy shot of Amicala’s factory. “Desperate, the Roxtus clothing manufacturer has turned to a desperate new innovation – the hat!” A concept drawing appeared on the screen just as Atakus smashed it. “Meanwhile,” another TV added, “the Chief Executive Agori of Tajun’s Textiles, Mentum, remains unconcerned.” The shot cut over to Mentum, who was seated on a plush chair no doubt purchased from his large cache of funds. Atakus tried to smash that screen, too, but Amicala blocked his way. “Tajun is already fully equipped to ride the new hat revolution.” Mentum smiled confidently, gesturing with his left hand. “Whereas Amicala’s hats are standard, boring, practical white things, Tajun’s upcoming line will offer hats in a wide variety of colors and designs.” Pictures of colorful, decorated hats floated by on the screen. “But’s that not all that we have to offer. Introducing the Hatpile™. Why just have one trendy design when you can have many? Show off any combination of your favorite styles. Only at Tajun’s Textiles. Your latest source for-“ Atakus jumped over Amicala, driving his sword into the screen. The energy in the sword hit the screen, crackling and hissing as Atakus pulled it out. “See?” Atakus raged, walking down to the factory floor. “We’re losing money, out-innovated, out-marketed” – Atakus gestured to a machine loom – “and our equipment is terrible. Tell me, why are their six pedals if there are only four directions?” Amicala gave him a blank look. Infuriated, Atakus kicked the machine. It sparked and clattered to pieces. He stomped past Amicala and back into the room with the Agori workers. “You” he said, gesturing to the Agori who had made the bright comment earlier, “will be fed to the Spikit.” Two Bone Hunters loyal to Atakus grabbed the Agori and hauled him kicking and screaming out of the room. Amicala grabbed a schedule and shoved it in Atakus’ face. “Palduk is innocent,” Amicala insisted. “He wasn’t even assigned to work that shift.” Atakus ignored her. “Anyone else who wants to steal anything will meet the same fate. Now get back to work.” Nobody moved. Atakus cut an Agori’s armor loose with his sword, the energies badly frying his skin. “NOW!” Everybody rushed to obey and ran out of the room. “That was easy.” he said to Amicala. Amicala looked at him. “That was awful. You’re fired.” Atakus turned around and pointed his sword at the Agori’s throat. “What did you say?” “Nothing.” whispered Amicala. “Nothing.” * * * Less than a half hour later, Atakus heard screams and the distant sound of munching. For a minute, he assumed it was merely the Spikit doing its pleasant work, but the sound persisted enough to be annoying. He got up from his post, muttering something about putting a blade through a certain Agori’s neck, and marched back into the factory. What he saw was a nightmare. Small white creatures, each with two stubby legs, and two grooved hands, were clinging to the Agori workers. They were eating their clothes. More of them littered the clothing piles, the threads, and everything in between. Atakus picked up one of the creatures, which was big enough to fit in the palm of his hand. “I was just in the middle of cooking socks for dinner, too.” it said, trying to get his attention. Atakus crushed the creature to death, and ran to the deserted section where the hats had been made. Sure enough, there was no thread, no cloth, and no sign of finished hats. Mystery solved. By the Great Beings. Atakus walked calmly back to the room with the TVs. He set his blade across the two destroyed screens, and ran into the room with six locks. The factory filled with electricity. The Agori workers slumped to the floor, the white creatures lay still. Atakus emerged from his hiding place, and picked up one of the creatures. It stirred, an idiotic smile on its face. Atakus smiled. While he didn’t know anything about making clothes, he had picked up a thing or two from Stronious on how to plan a raid. He quickly gathered up the little white creatures, and placed them in a metal box. Two Bone Hunters found him as he mounted his Spikit to leave. He had a special gift for Tajun’s Textiles. And thus the hat wars were lost to history. * * * My apologies to Sumiki. This work does not mean any insult to him and his hats. I hope to have a banner for this soon, but the competition I was doing this for left me on the clock. The phrases lent themselves to story concepts I wanted to try out, so that’s my excuse. Commentary and Criticism appreciated. I expect much criticism.
