These are the writings of Nagi Gluhapi, an agori survivor of the reformation of Spherus Magna, who was isolated on a small moon now orbiting the planet, which as since been named Doran by those who inhabit it. This is his story.
About this creation
I do not remember the reformation of the planet very well. I do not remember the events leading up to my arrival on Doran. I awoke from what seemed like a deep sleep to find myself lying on a soft and cool surface. I was shocked to find myself looking out at a vast ocean, stretching to the horizon. I had never seen such a sight before, since I had spent most of my life in a dry desert land with occasional forests or brush that were also void of much water save a few small rivers. Getting up from where I lay, I cautiously approached the small waves that were crashing on the shore. Touching the water with my bare metal, I was delighted by the sensation. I was so excited by my discovery that I laughed out loud with glee. However, I quickly stopped when I heard the raspy noise that came out instead. I tried to speak, shout, even scream. Nothing. I had lost my voice. Stricken dumb, for what reason I did not know. I began to reconstruct all of the memories I had before I had woken up in this strange land. I had been on a spirit quest at the time of the reformation. I was in a dense forest when the sky became darker than normal. I dismissed it as a cloud covering the sun, but came to realize what happened when a massive thundering roar erupted from all directions. That was when my sight went black. And now here I was on some tropical shore alone. For some reason, I had been stripped of my armor, which would have been uncomfortable if I had not been alone in this place. Luckily, I found my short blades partly buried in the sand near where I had awakened earlier.

As I began to wander down the shoreline, I came across an interesting sight. The shore was covered in strange wreckage which seemed to be drifting from a large wooden boat that was smashed against the rocks. Taking a metal hook, I fashioned myself a spear which I could use to catch fish. I also came across a worn but usable metal hammer and a torn patch of fishing net. These tools would come in handy. I could have used my powers to help me swim out to sea to fish, but I did not want to risk showing my powers out in the open where someone could be watching, especially since I had lost my voice. So, dragging a peice of the wrecked sea craft onto the beach, I began to work. I was not very experienced in building canoes or large boats, but I had built many crude rafts which I would use to transport the many large rahi I would catch on my frequent hunts. As I worked, I would occasionally hear a low buzzing sound somewhere in the forest behind me to the east. In my time, I have seen, hunted, and killed many Rahi of all shapes, sizes, and species. However, the creature that eventually appeared above the tree line was something even I did not expect. A large bright yellow and green wasplike Rahi had found me with its small, beady red compound eyes. I expected an aggressive charge at full speed, but instead the large insect descended to the beach and hovered just above the ground. I slowly stood up from my partly finished raft and calculated the time it would take to reach my blades before the Rahi got to me. I noticed now the large blade like stinger now pulled forward under the body in preparation for attack and killing its prey. I would have to use all of my natural speed to make sure I would strike first. Hopefully, my powers would not be necessary. I needed to be the first to attack.

image

Leaping from my spot, I rolled forward, grabbing my weapons from where they lay. The insect responded to my movement, charging at me with stinger ready. In one fluid movement, I dodged the incoming stinger while simultaneously stabbing the Rahi through the side, stopping it in midflight. The insect let out a screech, and desperately attempted to escape into the trees with green blood dripping from the seemingly fatal wound. I decided, for some reason, to not chase after the creature but instead returned to my work. Soon, the raft was finished and after trying out my makeshift oars, which had originally been sails of some sort, I shoved off to get some food for the night ahead. I was succesful in catching a strange looking red fish with large blue eyes and no teeth. I would eventually learn that these were called tahu rays, named after the great toa hero, and were a delicacy to those who inhabited the former planet Aqua Magna.

image

Unfortunately, I was too focused on the fish catching to notice the fast moving yellow and green blur heading right for my raft until it was practically upon me. I was utterly shocked. What an incredible creature to be able to function after receiving what would have been a fatal wound to a normal Rahi. My blades were out of reach on the other end of the boat with only a few seconds before a long stinger pierced my chest. Without a moment to lose, I grabbed the metal oars attached to their maneuvering arms and flipped them forward and leaned back just as the creature reached the boat. The insectoid collided with the two large metal blades, knocking the raft backwards due to the force of the impact. Letting out one final screech, the Rahi breathed its last. This was my first day on Doran. As I enjoyed a hearty meal of tahu ray that night, little did I know that my adventures in this new land were just beginning.

So, I used my aquired 10 points from the previous mission to add two armor peices to the legs. I also added some blue studs to the swords to max out my 4 part weapon limit. Also, I added a ponytail to the head.

image

The Tahu Ray! I didn't want to make a fish head, so...there you go!

image

The fishing spear and the net come together to form a napsack for storing the hammer or other things.

image

image

Even holds the blades!

image

The boat came from a larger one that I had originally built for the LOMU RPG, but never got to use, so I shortened it for this mission.

I will let the rest of the photos speak for themselves.

Quoting Kermunklin the Giant Evil House Head First of all, while your story is interesting and well-written, I feel it would be better broken up into several paragraphs instead of the huge chunks of texts you have. Other than that this MOC is super-cool. That Rahi thingie looks great, and either you found a miniature, Bionicle-sized beach, or else you have tremendous photo-editing skills. Very cool!
I organized the text according to the relationship between the pictures.Thank you, and these are edited photos, yes. No model beaches were used in the making of this post.

Quoting Lord Glazed Donut The backgrounds are very good, especially the main pick. Do you have a greenscreen?
No. I wish! it would be so easy to take photos then! No, I just use a editing app on my Ipad!

Yes, and 3 points for writing the rules, plus 7 equals 10. I will post my points to the points thread if I haven't already. Time is kinda tight you know!
