Legend of the Toa is total conversion mod for TES V Skryim set in the popular Bionicle universe, originally created by Lego. For the first time in the history of Bionicle, this mod will give the players a chance to experience the unique and entrancing world of Bionicle in an open-world environment. The mod will focus on the first year of Bionicle and will feature the big and mystical island of Mata Nui, with its diverse landscapes, ranging from lush jungle to vast deserts, snowy mountains, huge caverns and lava rivers.
The player will be able to create and take control of his own Toa, one of the six legendary warriors, who were sent to Mata Nui to protect the Matoran, the innocent inhabitants of the island, from the great evil endangering them - Makuta.
The mod will offer everything you would expect from a Bionicle mod for Skyrim: The completely free to explore island of Mata Nui, unique elemental powers for each Toa, masks of power and an epic quests to save the island!

I noticed that many of you asked the same questions, and not to respond to everyone, I will answer directly to most of them.
Seeing how they are many open questions about the mod you are all probably asking yourself, here is a FAQ to answer most of them.

  • Question: Are you going to do only the originial Toa Mata team and the island of Mata Nui or are you going to include as much content as possible?
    Answer: The development of a total conversion is very time consuming. As such, we have choosen the first year of Bionicle specifically, seeing how it seems to be the most obvious choice and the easiest to implement into Skyrim. While it is not currently planned to include other islands like Metru Nui, it may happen after we have reached our current goals. As such, there will also be no Bohrok or Rakshi in this mod, only content from the first year of Bionicle.
  • Question: How many Kanohi Masks will be available in this mod?
    Answer: We will atleast have all the 12 original masks from the first year of Bionicle, however, you can expect to see some variations and different masks in this mod, too!
  • Question: How will loot work? Can you pick up masks from slain Rahi?
    Answer: Loot will work like it does in Skyrim. When you see an item on a Rahi, you can take it from is corpse.
  • Question: According to the canon, Toa are not allowed to kill anyone. Will this be taken into account in this mod?
    Answer: Not entirely, no. For the sake of gameplay, Toa in this mod will kill Rahi just like the Dragonborn kills bandits in Skyrim. However, it has yet to be decided if the player will be allowed to kill matoran or turaga.
  • Question: Will this mod feature voice acting?
    Answer: We do not plan to implement traditional voice acting into this mod. We will, however, do voice "acting" In the style of hte unreleased game "Legend of Mata Nui" and the "Mata Nui Online Game", which means that instead of actual talking, you will hear mechanical sounds that somewhat resemble speech.
  • Question: When will this mod be released?
    Answer: Currently, the mod is still in early development stage, as such, the mod will be released when it is finished. We cannot provide a date for that, though. As for now, the Bionicle Weapons plugin is the only content from this mod that is publicly available.
  • Question: Do you take ideas from the Bionicle movies and the other Bionicle games into account for this mod?
    Answer: Yes, when it makes sense. You can be sure that this mod is created by loyal Bionicle fans that have been with Bionicle from the beginning.

This FAQ will be updated when it makes sense!

Okay, I'm officially interested in helping with this.

I'm not sure exactly how experienced of users you are looking for for your team, but I'm pretty handy at working withe Creation Kit. I'm just really getting into quest design, but I have lots of experience already with fiddling with leveled lists, item integration into the world, and I even have a bit of papyrus experience.

If you want me to help, you can shoot me a PM or something.

EDIT: I'm also curious, how are Kanohi masks going to be integrated? I'm assuming they'll work like helmets in Skyrim, but I'm curious as to how you'll obtain new masks and if they'll also give you their respective mask powers.

Are you planning to ever put this up to the Nexus mod site? You know, when it's done. It would get much more popularity there.

For now we taking story just until Mask of Light quest. We don't planning making Metru Nui and/or other Bionicle Universe locations now. And we absolutely will never make Bara Magna and giant robots. It would be too complicated task to us. Sorry.
