Or maybe they're called Vulcanus, Tajun, Tesara, Atero, Roxtus and Iconox. Could be, don't you think?



I like that idea alot

No, those villages were named that before the ELs.

No, the ELs existed before the villages did. Most of them were named after the Shattering.

Why would they name the villages after the ones who were responsible for the destruction of their homeland?

I never said the Agori named them after the ELs. Just that the ELs existed before the villages.

Hi, Mr. Farshtey. I have a couple (well, actually they're more) of questions.

1.Could a Toa of Air control gases as well?
1b.If so, all gases, or only specific ones?
2.Could a Toa of air control antidermis in gaseous form?
3.Could a Toa of Water control antidermis in liquid form?
4.Is there something that Glatorian and Gaori would need daily to survive that Element Lords don't?
5.In a movie trailer, Mata Nui is seen striking some sparking thing in the back of Tuma, which weakens him. Would you describe that as a malfunction in one of Tuma's mechanical implants?

Thank you for your time.


1) I don't think we have let them do that, no
2) No
3) No, because it's not water or liquid protodermis. Antidermis is too far removed from both chemically for it to fall under her purview.
4) No
5) Haven't seen the movie so can't comment on content in it


I think it's a malfunction, it's the only reasonable answer.

Hi, Greg. I hope you have a good day, with not too many questions to answer. I have a few questions for you:Geography of Spherus Magna

  1. Did the Great Sea (Aqua Magna) cover the South Pole of Spherus Magna?
  2. Is the following statement correct of false? If you would compare a usual map of the whole Earth (Europe in the middle, Amerika to the left and Asia to the right) and a map of the whole Spherus Magna, you have:
    1. The Northern Frost in place of Arctis (The North Pole)
    2. Bara Magna place of Africa
    3. Bota Magna place of Europe
    4. The Great Volcano in place of north-western Asia
    5. Aqua Magna instead on Antarctis, at least a bit of South Amerika, and Australia
    If false, how much is not correct?

    Other

  3. Which of the following villages existed before the Core War? Atero, Roxtus, Tesara, Vulcanus and Tajun
  4. How did the Great Beings change the Zesk and Vorox to have stinger tails etc.?
  5. Did the Sand Tribe agree to do be changed by the Great Beings, or were they forced to?
Thanks .


1) I personally see the Great Sea as being southwest of Bara Magna, but I have no idea if that is how Denmark sees it.
2) I'm sorry, I don't really have time to do this right now.
3) They all did.
4) Tinkered with their genetic make-up
5) I think they agreed, not realizing what they were getting themselves into


Nothing very interesting, except 5.

No, those villages were named that before the ELs.


I asked that some weeks ago and Greg says he doesn't want to do the "one name means three or four things"-thing again.
#8209
EL is not on Aqua Magna. Most likely, there would be some structure of his under the sea, possibly having been discovered by escaped Pit inmates by now

What about the actual original Pit itself? Is it possible OoMN discovered that and turned it into the Pit? Explaining why they made a prison there?


I'm not following you. The original Pit, the one originally guarded by Hydraxon, is inside Mata Nui. No EL was ever inside Mata Nui. And the outside Pit -- out in the ocean -- had no structures. The only structure was the one the Barraki built, which got crushed by Mahri Nui.

Riiiiiiight. XD In fact it would have to be quite far from there, yeah...
#8210
Dear Greg,

1. Did the Jungle Element Lord rule the jungle Tesara is in?

2. A while back you said Iconox was made after the shattering and Tajun, Tesara , and Vulcanus existed before the Shattering. Is this True?

3.Did the Water tribe have a navy?

4. To the west of Tajun is a ocean of sinking sand. Did that area used to be the Great Sea?

5. Does the Water EL also rule the river dormus?

6. Did the Northern Frost melt after the Shattering?

7. you said part of the sand EL domain was the Bara Magna desert. What is the rest of his domain?

8. Did the Fire EL rule the Iron Canyon volcano besides the Great Volcano

9. Did the Rock and Sand tribe have any vehicles during the Core War?

10. Were bone hunters raiders during the war?

11. Were spherus Magna Villages during the core war like Metru Nui?

Thanks Greg


1) It would have technically been under his control, but his main focus would have been a vast forest located in a different part of the planet
2) Iconox was made later, I would need to double-check the latest on Tesara
3) Transport ships, certainly
4) No. The Great Sea is the world the Mata Nui robot is on
5) Yes
6) No
7) That was the major part of his domain, as there were no other deserts
8) That would have been an area of influence, yes, hence the Vulcanus settlement being there
9) Not that I am aware of, no
10) Yes
11) They did have larger cities, yes, though we don't know if they were as sophisticated as Metru Nui, since Metru Nui is basically a mechanical brain

Dear Greg

1. on the map of Bara Magna that came out in the January 09 magazine there is a place called the sea of liquid sand was the Great sea once that place or south of it on SM?

2. On the map it shows that the skrall river leads into the creep canyon did the water that went through the creep canyon go into the great sea on SM?

3. You once said that the Plagued tribe lived on Bota Magna on SM, did they live in the forest part of it?

4. Did Bota Magna have swamps in it on SM?

5. during the shattering the skrall were cut from their homeland. Was their homeland the forested mountains on Bota Magna that the Jungle and Rock element lords ruled?

6. If no to #5 where was the skrall homeland located on SM?

7.Did the element lord of ice or water rule the south pole of SM?

8.is this how SM would of looked liked? (should be circle not a diamond shape sorry)

1) That was not the Great Sea. The Great Sea is Aqua Magna.
2) At one time, ages ago, yes. Now the water does not extend down that far, the river becomes sand fairly early
3) Yes
4) Not that I am aware of
5) Yes
7) Hasn't been confirmed that there is a south pole
8) Roughly, yes, except again for the south pole thing

hello Mr. Farshety i have questions i have been waiting to ask youspherus magna:1 is Bara Magna+EOP+?=spherus magna?Matanui:these are for a fanfic i am making2 when he returns to his body, will he bring the bara magnans to live in him?3 how would he feel about every one knowing that they are inside of him?4 would he erase their memories of this fact?4a if not, will he interact with his inhabitants?5 can he turn matoran into toa, toa into turaga, and turaga into toa?thank you for answering.
1) Can't answer it2) No. The Bara Magnans would have no desire or need to live inside him. They are not nanotech like the Matoran are, it is not their world.3) I doubt he would care. They should know what their role is, after all.4) No4a) He never did before, not sure he would or not5) Only in the sense that if he creates a Matoran, he can determine his or her destiny. But if a Matoran is not destined to become a Toa, Mata Nui cannot make him one.
1 what i mean is, we know that bara magna is the biggest of the three pieces, but is EOP the second?2 doesn't matanui have enough resources for them? there are barely any resources on Bara magna4a i mean, like, talking to them, getting nuparu to put special devices on the out side of him(making him have one of the things on his eye that many toa of ice have) etc.5 what about turaga to toa (or at least making turaga so they could do the things that they could as toa)?
1) Not something I have worried about yet2) Not a question of resources. It's a question of them not being meant to live inside of a machine. Would you want to live inside a machine?4) No, not likely5) Only the Ignika can turn a Turaga back into a Toa. Otherwise, it cannot be done. And you cannot give a Turaga a Toa's power, because the Turaga's body would not be able to handle it.
1) now that you have answered what i ment to say(eop is part of spherus magna) can you tell me how close iam with this theory: the third fragment is a giant forest.2) for a previous question about bara-magnans immigrating into mata nui you had responded,
2) Not a question of resources. It's a question of them not being meant to live inside of a machine. Would you want to live inside a machine?
if they did not see them selves walking into a giant mechanical mouth and were just teleported onto an MU island, what would make them feel like they are inside a giant robot?PS. i would love to be inside of Mata Nui . :P
1) I can't answer this2) If you were teleported inside of the Houston Astrodome, could you tell you weren't outside?

Hello Mr. Farshety I have questions i have been waiting to ask you.

Spherus Magna:
1. Bara Magna+EOP+?=Spherus Magna?

Mata Nui:
These are for a fanfic i am making

2. When he returns to his body, will he bring the Bara Magnans to live in him?

3. How would he feel about every one knowing that they are inside of him?

4. Would he erase their memories of this fact?
4.a: If not, will he interact with his inhabitants?

5. Can he turn Matoran into Toa, Toa into Turaga, and Turaga into Toa?

thank you for answering.


1) Can't answer it.

2) No. The Bara Magnans would have no desire or need to live inside him. They are not nanotech like the Matoran are, it is not their world.

3) I doubt he would care. They should know what their role is, after all.

5) Only in the sense that if he creates a Matoran, he can determine his or her destiny. But if a Matoran is not destined to become a Toa, Mata Nui cannot make him one.


1. What I mean is, we know that Bara Magna is the biggest of the three pieces, but is EOP the second?

2. Doesn't Mata Nui have enough resources for them? There are barely any resources on Bara Magna.

4.a: I mean, like, talking to them, getting Nuparu to put special devices on the out side of him (making him have one of the things on his eye that many Toa of Ice have) etc.

5. What about Turaga to Toa (or at least making Turaga so they could do the things that they could as toa)?


1) Not something I have worried about yet.

2) Not a question of resources. It's a question of them not being meant to live inside of a machine. Would you want to live inside a machine?

some questions on the glatorain1]can glatorian reproduce somehow? can they duplicate or something?2]can they remove there helmets?3] are they sorta prototypes of toa?4]what is their purpose?5]i forgot what their called but those things the skrall are running from are they glatorian too?6] what are the sisters of the skrall are they glatorain and why do they use there minds as weapons? do other glatorian know how to do that too?
1) There is reproduction on Bara Magna, but it's not something we bother to go into since we have no "Bara Magna child" sets or any reason to include that in story.2) Yes3) No, they are more like inspiration for Toa. Toa are mainly mechanical and created by the Great Beings. Glatorian are mainly organic and were not created by the Great Beings.4) Survival. In this case, by working for villages so they get food, water and shelter.5) No. The baterra are machines.6) The sisters of the Skrall are female members of the Skrall race. They are not Glatorian -- Glatorian is a job title, like boxer or gladiator. And they use their minds because they have psychic powers.
i dont mean to be annyoing but if glatorian is a title what is their race called?im just curious
We haven't given their race a BIONICLE name, because we haven't needed to for story.
interesting
hi Greg i was reading some Bionicle things about the great beings was there more than 2 of them? becasue it said that the mask of life cursed one GB to bring everything around him to life and he went made from all the voices around him and was locked away and then 2 great beings took the ignika to the MU realy the question is:1) was their more than one great beings?
1) Yes. We know there had to be more than one, because we know one was cursed by the Ignika and we saw two others in a novel bring the Ignika into the Matoran universe. There were others besides those three, as well.
wierd do they have another species name? have they got any individual names? to?
1) Not that we have revealed2) Yes. The recent Empire of the Skrall chapter named one of the Great Beings, Angonce
kewl
#8216
Hey Greg. A few questions about Kanohi.

1. Is the Kanohi Garai that Hewkii Mahri wears in normal Garai form, or did the Ignika stylize it?
2. Why isn't a Kanohi Komau considered an immoral mask? It robs the target of their free will, something I'd consider immoral. Numerous Matoran wear them, and Onewa seems fine wearing it. Any reason?
3. Would a Mask of Weather Control hypothetically be able sense weather patterns? (A point for my epic)

Thank you for your time.


:t: :j:


1) None of the Mahri masks are really normal, because they all have tubes coming out of them, for one thing
2) Well, if someone is about to kill someone, and you use the mask to make them stop, aren't you committing a moral act? You just saved someone's life, and did it without killing or even physically harming the person who was going to commit the murder.
3) Yes


Sending replies to 1&2. 3's interesting, though: if there was a Mask of Weather Control, it would be able to sense weather patterns. Sorta like a Dermis Turtle... :)

1. Vakama encountered a being made entirely of fire within a lair of Makuta Teridax in BIONICLE Adventures #6: Maze of Shadows. I do not have the book with me, so I cannot remember what was explained about this being, but I believe Vakama identified it as a reflection of his own destructive power (or something like that). Here's the BS01 page on the entity. My question is, based on my recollection, was this entity an illusion set up by Teridax to make Vakama question himself? (If you have to look it up that's fine; I don't need a quick response so feel free to put this off as long as your busy schedule requires.)

1b. If not, can you give us any more info on the nature of this being?

2. Regarding the Force Blasters used on Bara Magna vehicles, are the spheres they launch similar in nature to the so-called "force spheres" in the Matoran Universe chute system, or are they totally unrelated?

3. Will you be giving Sahmad's tribe an elemental title in story? If it helps, Sahmad's armor is orange and black, and Telluris's is yellow-orange, dark gray, and yellow (since I know it's difficult to tell from pictures).

Thanks in advance.


1) No, it was not an illusion, but beyond that, I do not have more info to give. What exists on the character was in the book.
2) Unrelated
3) I don't have plans to at the moment. Doesn't mean I never will, but I have other priorities right now


Nothing good there. Maybe another time.

doesn't really matter and isn't really important. 'Reproduction' in the Matoran Universe is basicly Matoran building more Matoran. We've always known there was reproduction on Bara Magna.

well seeing as they can't exactly get built it would imply so, but that is all we need, that is all we will get, and there is nothing left to discus.

That's about it."



"1) Well, the overall storyline is put together by a team of which I am one member. I then put the flesh on the bones.
2) By reading a lot and writing a lot
3) The BIONICLE books stopped selling really well a few years ago, in part because a lack of advertising for them meant fans didn't know they were out.

1a. where does it take place?

2. On a tv ad for The Legend Reborn it said a free bionicle gift came with it does this have a 2010 ad?

3. Is Boto Magna 2010's location? or does he go up north on Bara magna to find the truth
about the giant robot on Bara Magna and find a way home and defeat Makuta?

4. Is Mata Nui in next year?
4a. Ackar?

Oh. My. Goodness.

A 2010 POSTER IN BIONICLE 4 .
#8230
I know that is going to be awesome. I hope you see a teaser of the 2010 sets.
#8231
I know you must have a lot of questions flooding in, so i will try to keep this short.

1. If something happened to you, like your quite, or were fired, or something of the sort, who would replace your job?

2.Do you ever receive/build BIONICLE sets?

3. In tlr the skopio also has treads, did the great beings add on treads to this species, or was this just artistic licences?

4. How exactly is the mask of dimensional gates fused to Vezon, is it attached to his face like a mask, on the back of his skull like thi ignika was, or does he look the same and it is just the power of the mask that has been infused with him.

5. Sorry but i am a little confused, do new sapient species like Matoran and Vortixx come into being constantly in the mu, or are the people who started out there the only ones there?

6. Are the snakes from which Vastus extracts venom from rare, or are they a common animal for Tessera?

Finally, I would like to right a thanks. You have taken a fairly simple and generic storyline for kids and turned it into an incredibly detailed and epic saga that all ages can enjoy. The world of BIONICLE is on of the most complex and realistic, not to mention dark, story lines in history, rivaling even the STAR WARS expanded universe . There are times when i think the potential for BIONICLE is restrained by LEGO, but these moments are far and few between. BIONICLE has hundreds of complex characters, locations, and things that almost always have back story and complete detail, that isn't needed at all but just gives us so much more and such a more realistic and powerful experience. You alway exceed expectations, and give fans what they want.
Not only that, but you truly interact with your fans like no author i have ever seen before. You communicate with a large part of your fan base every day, and you answer questions, but you also let us add to the storyline. We have written canon stories, created masks, toa teams, several characters, explanations, as well as little details like the fact that Venom uses snake venom, or all sorts of other things. WE have also made pictures of characters, designed weapons, and done so much to the story. You have made us, your fan base, part of the story, and really put us into a world that you have created.
Not only that, but your witting style is amazing. You still do write these books with 8 year olds in mind, so there will not be a lot of unnecessary descriptions, or length, or advanced vocabulary (even if I'm still not quite sure what Clairvoyance means.), nut you still manage to have stories that appeal to adults with dark turns and unsettling characters. Your witting is compelling and keeps one turning pages. That and a lot of BIONICLE is done in a god's eye view. With things like general explanations, and guides, alot of the story is told in an entierly different style of writing than normal stories which I really like . You have inspired all of my writing and i strive to improve and be more like you every day.

Thank You,
Redge the Bat.

5) It is possible for new beings to come into existence within the Matoran universe, yes. We know that, for example, in Metru Nui, if the Turaga saw the need for more workers to do a project, more Matoran would be brought into being.
6) Common
7) Thank you, K. I have to agree with you that the potential for BIONICLE is enormous. It is tied to the toy line, so if the toy line were to go away, I'm not sure if there would be an official way to keep the story going. But I think a lot could be done with this story, even if someday there weren't toys.

Finally, I would like to right a thanks. You have taken a fairly simple and generic storyline for kids and turned it into an incredibly detailed and epic saga that all ages can enjoy. The world of BIONICLE is on of the most complex and realistic, not to mention dark, story lines in history, rivaling even the STAR WARS expanded universe . There are times when i think the potential for BIONICLE is restrained by LEGO, but these moments are far and few between. BIONICLE has hundreds of complex characters, locations, and things that almost always have back story and complete detail, that isn't needed at all but just gives us so much more and such a more realistic and powerful experience. You alway exceed expectations, and give fans what they want.
Not only that, but you truly interact with your fans like no author i have ever seen before. You communicate with a large part of your fan base every day, and you answer questions, but you also let us add to the storyline. We have written canon stories, created masks, toa teams, several characters, explanations, as well as little details like the fact that Venom uses snake venom, or all sorts of other things. WE have also made pictures of characters, designed weapons, and done so much to the story. You have made us, your fan base, part of the story, and really put us into a world that you have created.
Not only that, but your witting style is amazing. You still do write these books with 8 year olds in mind, so there will not be a lot of unnecessary descriptions, or length, or advanced vocabulary (even if I'm still not quite sure what Clairvoyance means.), nut you still manage to have stories that appeal to adults with dark turns and unsettling characters. Your witting is compelling and keeps one turning pages. That and a lot of BIONICLE is done in a god's eye view. With things like general explanations, and guides, alot of the story is told in an entierly different style of writing than normal stories which I really like . You have inspired all of my writing and i strive to improve and be more like you every day.


How beautiful. :)

I did too. Greg is a great author, and the bionicle world has evolved out of the seemingly constrained limits of a toy line backstory. It's been the story thats kept me buying the sets, not the other way around. I salute him :usa:

Same here. I bought Takanuva (my first non-blue set) because I liked the character, I bought Toa Ignika because I liked the concept of his character, and I bought Toa Mata Nui because he's MATA NUI .


P.S. How exactly do I get the "posted by (such-and-such) at (such time) on quotes?

Greg took a brake from here after a member started a topic about how he didn't like Geg style of writeing, and it grew from there.
