Chapter one! Sorry I couldn't post this last weekend, so I'm posting this a bit earlier to make up for it! It's a bit short, but that's because it establishes some preliminary lore that's important. Don't worry, next week's is longer and has fighting!
About this creation
Long ago, when the Great Beings created the universe, they first created three original toa to aid them in the monstrous task ahead. First was Mato, toa of matter. Mato was assigned to bring the planets, stars, and creatures to existence. Mato was convinced that he was tasked with the most important aspect of creation, but the truth was that all our roles were equally important, and without any of us, nothing would have been finished.
Second was Yiang, toa of energy. Yiang brought all creatures to life, created the elemental powers and artifacts of power, and started the burning of the stars. In truth, I believe Yiang was really the most important if anyone. Yiang was always a good thinker, and generally knew what to do, because he knew the workings of the universe inside and out.
Third was I, Temus, toa of time. I created the intricate timestream that intertwines throughout our own universe. Once the universe was finished and working properly, the Great Beings held a council without us. They discussed the ultimate power they instilled in us. From what I head from Mata Nui, we came very close to being exterminated that day, but the vote swung in our favor. That is to say, we were stripped of almost all our powers and banished to separate corners of existence where we would be unconscious until the time came when we were needed. I was put into suspended animation until you two awoke me. What is the grave peril that awaits this world?
Vanu: We don't actually know.
Tumpus: What? Then why are you here? Are you grave robbers?
Vanu: No! An old turaga sent us here with coordinated and a time. When that time came, a blinding light lit up the desert, and this chamber opened up. So, we didn't even know the world was in danger.
Tempus: Was the turaga by any chance name Raxus?
Vex: Hey, Yeah! How did you know?
Tempus: He was the first turaga, blessed with infinite wisdom, but forced to never speak directly. Usually he speaks in incomprehensible riddle, but I suppose coordinates and a time is riddle enough. We have to go see him.
Whoa! Did you guys see that? Some shadow flew by? Was that a bat?
I saw it too. Big bat if it was one.
It was no bat. I can slow down my perception of time down a bit, and I can tell you it was no...
Destrin (landing): Hello, toa.
???: No, I owe nothing to them anymore. They betrayed me, as much as the Beings. I won't even call them Great. I will do as you say...
Fourth Story Commentary: That was fun to shoot, not so fun to edit. Tempus's pic I just magic wanded and changed the background, but since Yiang and Mato are white, that was impossible for me to do within 20 minutes each! Next week's chapter is cooler :D and I already have pics for it. Also, I made entries for the top contest, and build the drawing. I don't expect to get close to winning the top contest, but I don't see how I can lose build the drawing ;D Stay tuned!
Thanks for reading!! Don't forget to rate and comment!
Short, but still a very fantastic beginning! The photo editing was greatly done, what program do you used for it? Also, the beginning really makes me want to read more. And of course always nice to see Vored (Vex) in there!
