Yeah... it's cool to know a char's real name.
#3762
It would've been nice to know... :(
#3763
But not knowing just adds to his awesomeness, since he's so powerful, that he can keep his name a secret. Knowledge is nice, but many people won't like it because it's not what they want it to be, just like Teridax received such flame for not being Makuta enough. I think it's better to just not know, TSO is fun to write, just as MoMN was.

Hi GregF

Some questions:
1- Is that light dimension that Brutaka mentioned ''the journey of Takanuva'' dimension?

2- Any chance we'll see Lesovikk back this year?

3- During the raid of Arthaka, did Kojol took the Kraahkan with him?
3b- Also during that raid, what was that blizzard?

4- Is the Avohkii made out of protosteel?
4b- Kraahkan?

All for now


1) No, it is not.
2) I don't know yet
3) Um, no, why would he?
3b) If you read Bionicle Legends #8, Artakha controls the weather effects on his island
4) No
4b) Yes
#3765
Hmmm... why doesn't the OoMN use those light beings to eat the Makuta?
#3766
"An immense heat swept through his body, his blood boiling and white-hot flames flickering behind his eyelids. As soon as the heat had come it disappeared, replaced by an icy cold so deep that Tahu couldn't even shiver. Within a fraction of a second, he felt himself sinking into warm, welcoming water, deep and pure. Then the water evaporated away into a howling wind that swept him around and around -- until he landed on the hard earth and felt himself sinking down, down, down into the stifling depths. Finally he hit the hard surface of a stone cliff, and behind his still-closed eyes it was as if he could see right through it until it held no mysteries. Then the stone, too, fell away. For a long moment there was nothingness."


1. The above is from Beware the Bohrok. I know you didn't write this, but was the EP transformation the Nuva went through intended to reference the 6 elements they wielded?

2. Did all 6 Toa feel that, or just Tahu?

3. Does this confirm Toa have blood and eyelids?

Thanks,

~:l::a:~


1-3) I wouldn't pay much attention to this, since it refers to "blood boiling" and Toa don't have blood. This is an author having fun without really knowing enough about the universe.


So I guess those books are even less canon than I thought.

Hmmm... why doesn't the OoMN use those light beings to eat the Makuta?


I would expect that they can't survive outside of their own dimension, at least not long enough to be used as a weapon.
#3768
Who says they won't. We have a war coming in the summer, we may see some Makuta falling in there. The OoMN probably didn't do it before to prevent being revealed. There's probably not too many Olmaks, so that would hinder that attack.

Maybe, just maybe there is a way to reveal the OoMN secret at THAT time, but NOW they WILL get revealed

It seems too easy. Once they have a fixed position for Destral, an Olmak-wearer can teleport in and unleash the lightspawn in an instant, or at the very least throw a few Makuta in.

I think this would be better continued in one of the Official topics.
#3771
They are in another dimension, Madara, and besides Brutaka, there's no one we know of that could get them into the main universe, which would be kind of dangerous - introducing an organism from another world into your world can be quite risky. And maybe they even attack Matoran or Toa or OoMN members, since they also have shadow sides to drain .

To add to above quote: And what would happen if Brutaka was killed, and his Olamak lost.

Anyway, a quote.

1) How old do matoran get?

2) Let's say i have a mask of mind reading. And i hid outside you house and scanned your mind. If you had loads of mental training, like a OoMN member would have, would you be able to sense my presence in your head?

That's all .



1) Well, we know are still alive after 100,000 years
2) Oh, definitely
#3773
A very real possibility in these days.

Never try to mind-read a OoMN member . :P

This one is awkward ^^U but it cleared some things for me:
Hi Greg, hope you're doing fine.
Here are some questions:

1) Spoiler
2)Was it also one of the reasons he kept true to his word?
3)Were all the Rahi that Makuta Teridax used against the Toa Mata (the Tarakava, the Muaka,the Kane Ra, the Nui Jaga, the Nui Rama and the Nui Kopen) created by him?

...And that's all for now...I hope those questions will not sound too noobish..

Regards,

Merovingian107

1) Spoiler
2) No
3) Doubt it.

Hey Mero, MC9 spoilers aren't allowed 'till tomorrow. :)


Man, so sorry...I have just fixed it...

Hi Greg. I've got a few questions, and I hope they're not more you can't answer.

1 ) Did Teridax create the Nivawk?
1a ) If yes, is that why he kept it as a pet and could understand its language?
1b ) If no, did another Makuta create it specifically for use by Teridax? Perhaps in bribery?

2 ) A Rahkshi Kaita is said to be able to be made from Rahkshi of any three powers. However, the two we have seen take their names from the type of Kraata that controls them. Does this mean there are only 42 possible Rahkshi Kaita, that multiple types of Rahkshi Kaita can have the same name, or that there is a different naming system used by Makuta and others who have to deal with identifying so many different Kaita?

3 ) I know I was probably more than a little obnoxious in asking so many playset questions before. However, one of them I was very curious about, and it would be useful on the wiki. Are the air bubbles carried by the Toa Terrain Crawler and its mini-sub for the sake of potential air-breathing passengers (since I'm pretty sure the OoMN wasn't sure who would end up using it, or if they were they didn't know that they'd have been transformed by the Ignika into water breathers)?

4 ) Perhaps was the Toa Terrain Crawler kept in some section of the Pit for emergency transportation prior to the Great Cataclysm, and after it escaped it was caught again by Axonn? I can't imagine how else it would have gotten to Voya Nui's lower levels otherwise, since until the Great Cataclysm there was no water separating Voya Nui from Karda Nui. Unless a member of the Order delivered it to Voya Nui after the cataclysm had taken place, knowing that it would now be needed...

5 ) Did Roodaka intentionally give the Rahaga their new spinner powers (boomerang, snare, etc.), or was it a careless/unpredictable aspect of their transformation?

Thanks in advance, and I hope I'm not bugging you again with questions you can't answer.


1) Probably
1a) Why not? Lots of people have pets, and in this case, he had one that could spy for him.
2) We don't know that keeping the kaita straight is a problem, because outside of that one comic, we have never seen any Rahkshi kaita. It may simply not be an ability they use very often.
3) Again, not something I have worried about since I didn't need to for story.
4) No, that wasn't the case. It was a sea creature Axonn modified.
5) Their spinner powers are dictated by their internal will, that's not something she could change. She can change how they look, not who they are.


I sent another PM to him and hope to get a reply soon.

So does this mean Axonn ceated it like the Makuta created rahi?

No. Axonn found it and simply modified the rahi.
#3778
Remember, Axonn spend 1000 years on Voya Nui when there was water around. He's also an order member so he's pretty capable of doing such a thing (modifying the rahi that is)
#3779
Hey Greg. In the latest chapter of TMC, "A number of small settlements on the northern continent had fallen to him before Teridax confronted him."

Does this mean there is a northern continent to accompany the better-known and larger Southern Continent (i.e. Voya Nui etc.)

Thanks.

Triggy


You can't have a southern continent if you don't have a northern one. If there was no northern one, wouldn't you just call the southern one "the continent?"

Hmm.

Yeah... I sent him a PM as a reply to something he sent me, but he never replied. I wondered if he was busy, but even today it has not had an answer....
I'm half afraid to send him another in case he DID get it, but... whatever-no biggie.
#3783
Okay, I just have some questions that have been bugging me

1.BL10 SPOILERS

2.I will understand if you can't answer this, but, could you tell me if 2009 is going to be taking place before, after, or at the same time as the present-day matoran universe storyline?

2) 2009 picks up right where 2008 leaves off.

3a.Is the Kanohi Olmak a hard-to-find/make mask in the Matoran universe and Brutaka has one of the few in existance, or is he just the only bearer we've seen thus far?

3) There aren't a lot of them

3b1.Why hasn't Brutaka's mask been repaired yet? Is it just because he has been too busy?

3a) He's been busy

3b2.Did the Order, or atleast Brutaka, suspect that something may go wrong in Takanuva's transit to Karda Nui?

3b) Even if they did, there wasn't much they could do about it.

3c.Kingdom of the Great Spirit SPOILERS

4.What is the storyline reason for Takua's toa name being Toa Takanuva instead of Toa Takua like with other teams of toa that we've seen that transformed from matoran to toa? Was it because he was a toa of light, or something else?

4) I always say it as a tribute to the Toa Nuva, who were his heroes.

5.Will the fact that, in the last few years, there have been more and more characters questioning how much Mata Nui's life is worth compared to other's (Nuju after Matoro dies) have an impact on the storyline, or is it just to tell kids that, sometimes, sacrifices must be made for the greater good?

5) The latter.

Thank you for your time.

2. So he meant that as in time as well, not just story-wise
3. Well, Brutaka is even more of an oddball now ^^
3a. Not surprised
3b. Guessing that's a no.
4. Not really surprising
5. Just wanted to make sure...

At any rate, I think we should just shrug our shoulders, take a breath, and think of more questions we desperately think we need the answers to. :P

On Topic:
Greg says that the thing that changed the Mistuka is right in front of us, yes?
So why don't we start listing things it could be, then someone can ask Greg about them. Not that I feel he would tell us before it's officially released, but I think guessing is fun.
