  4. voporak1: why velika wants rule them residents of Spherus Magna?

  7. PointlessQuestions: You stated some years ago that you knew Takanuva's destiny, but wouldn't reveal it because it might pertain to future story. As the story is indefinitely on hold at best, can you now reveal this information?

    Greg Farshtey: My plan was to have him play a major role in a Great Beings' civil war, between Velika and like-minded followers who felt the GBs should dominate Spherus Magna directly, and other GBs that wanted no interference with the society at all. That assumed that the story team did not have other plans for the character, but if they did not, that was my intention for him.

  8. kyle7475: I've heard that Tahu is now the most powerful Toa due to him using the golden armor. But how exactly did the golden armor make him more powerful, aside from granting him heat vision? Did it boost his elemental powers like his Nuva transformation did, but to a greater extent? Did it give him even more Rahkshi powers than heat vision? After all, to be honest it seems like he's actually weaker now that he's in Mata form. He can't use a Kanohi Nuva, his elemental powers are weaker (don't know for sure), and he lacks Nuva body armor (though he does have his Adaptive Armor suit).

    Greg Farshtey: But the armor absorbed all the powers of the Rahkshi he used it to destroy. We only showed heat vision in story, but he has other powers.

  13. Fippe_: the member Erebus wrote that he has been communicating with you (outside of BZPower, of course) and he posted that you told him that “The Great Being was already named Velika before inhabiting the Matoran body.”
    So if Erebus hasn't been lying, as far as I understand that statement creates a contradiction to the statement in this Chat (“He assumed [the name] as a Matoran.”).
    I just want to know, if “Velika” is his real name or a pseudonym.

    Greg Farshtey: I probably did give him that answer, but in retrospect, it doesn't make sense given that it is at least POSSIBLE that some of the earliest creations might have known some or all GB names. So if he wanted to keep his status undercover, it wouldn't have made sense to use his real name, especially since he had no way of knowing that the GB would lose all contact with the MN robot.

  14. PointlessQuestions: If so, do they all have a set power? Or does it vary between individuals, as in the case of Frostelus and other sapient beings? (For that matter, are the Protocairns still sapient?)

    Greg Farshtey: Yes, they are sapient. Their Rhotuka has a sort of a "short-circuit" power - it temporarily blocks the signals between the mind and the body in a target, causing an opponent to collapse.

    Greg Farshtey: Yes

    PointlessQuestions: If there does exist an Earth Tribe on Spherus Magna, in which sorts of regions would they reside? Would it be reasonable to assume that they had some dominion over subterranean tunnels, or is that off-base? Out of Bara Magna and Bota Magna, would they have greater numbers on Bota Magna?

    Greg Farshtey: Yes, Bota Magna, but I see them more as being farmers than cave/tunnel dwellers

Tying into this, did the Earth Tribe ever have an Element Lord of Earth appointed to it, or were they not part of that system?

  18. PointlessQuestions: In Sahmad's Tale, Chapter 7, Annona fought the Golden Being in the Skakdi fortress and drove the Skakdi mad by feasting on their dreams. The Golden Being then accidentally granted their maddened wishes, which dissolved the fortress and caused strange creatures and things to appear all around. My questions pertain to that event.
    What happened to the Toa Mahri during all this? Were they freed from the Golden Being's brainwashing due to the confusion it went through? Or, if they were not freed, how did they respond to their masters being driven mad?

    Greg Farshtey: Since the dream of their serving the Skakdi no longer existed for that period of time, it is very likely they were freed during that battle.

  19. PointlessQuestions: There appear to only be six chambers in the laboratory where the Element Lords were created. Was the Element Lord of Earth created elsewhere? Or was the Earth Lord perhaps created in the central chamber of that laboratory, from which all the others branch off?

    Greg Farshtey: The element lords were created in "shifts," not all at the same time, so they were not limited to six.

    Betrifft: Elementarlords

    PointlessQuestions: Several sources mention only six armies fighting in the Core War. Did the Earth Tribe join forces with any other tribe, or were they out for themselves?

    Greg Farshtey: The Earth tribe did not fight in the war. They are extremely tied to nature, plus they may have run across EP before ... regardless, they seemed to have a pretty good idea all of this was not going to end happily.

  21. keemaxim21:After some search, you actually have said both on this thread. The first one, page 170:

    Also, does the Red Star revive rahi?

    I am going to say no, because the Makuta determine how many Rahi are needed and Rahi are specialized as species but usually not as individuals. Having too many Rahi of one type could end up being a problem, so having an automatic return program might not be the best idea.

    And page 288:

    And about the new rahi thing... how does that work? are rahi brought back too?

    Yes, Rahi are brought back,

    So which one should be considered accurate?

    Greg Farshtey: Not a preferred theory, no, but I do think we can take as a given that Velika was responsible.

    Firox555: have the other GB's thought about where Velika went? They probably would have missed him after a while.

    Greg Farshtey: He probably made a big show of going into exile so they wouldn't be concerned about him

    Firox555: Lastly, what exactly is Velika's moral situation? Is he bad through and through, like Teridax, or is he just confused, or (I find this idea interesting) does he genuinely believe that he is doing the right thing?

    Greg Farshtey: He definitely believes he is doing the right thing. Conquerors usually do. He feels that a lack of direct control by the GBs caused the crisis, and he is determined to remedy that.

Since then, however, Greg ruled their relationship uncanon, stating that beings in the MAtoran Universe are incapable of love beyond that of a friend caring about a friend (despite the fact that these two "friends" nearly kissed). I would like to ask why you decided to make it non-canon after it being canon for years.

    Greg Farshtey: Simple. What was in the online games was not approved by the story team, nor was there ever anything in story bibles saying these characters had this relationship. So it was not "canon." It was done to add some characterization into the game, but logically it made no sense, so I felt no obligation to maintain something that was illogical.

    Greg Farshtey: No. In that universe, the GBs programmed their creations to be like that from the start.

    eevee435: If the Great Beings do not have counterparts, does this mean they created all the alternate universes?

    Greg Farshtey: Alternate universes are created automatically when decisions are made. Under this theory, if you decided to go plau basketball today, well, your life might be changed forever. You might gain something incredible, or lose out on something great because you weren't home. So an alternate universe gets created in which you decided NOT to go play basketball. When we use them in fiction, it is usually some dramatic, pivotal event that went a different way and that is when the alt. universe split off from the main one.

How did Kabrua find out about the treatment of the Bara Magna Vorox?

    Greg Farshtey: Ah, very good question. Here's a hint -- although the GBs had lost contact with Mata Nui, Velika never lost contact with the remnants of Spherus Magna. So he knew a great deal of what was going on through agents loyal to him that no one else in the MU would have known.
