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!

This is a good idea. Are you taking cues from the MNOLG in terms of area design? Because that would just be icing on the cake.

Those models look great right now. Will there be female variants for the one female in the group, or are you sticking with toy accuracy, for lack of a better word?

Also, last I checked there were quite a few decent modelers floating around in the BIONICLE fan sites, or at least have some models that I'm sure they could donate. Plenty of voice actors too, I think (unless you're going with the silent squeaking of the MNOLG, that'd be interesting).

Thank you for comment. Yes, we will use MNOLG as reference, along with other games, videos and movies about Bionicle.

At this moment we're not planning female variant of the body. We will use original toy parts proportions.

Probably we will find and contact them when we needed. For the voice actors, we don't need them, cause we planning use mechanical voice as from first unreleased game. That's why we need talanted sound editor.

Finally, someone shows Bionicle some real appreciation! I really hate it when people say that Bionicle is nothing more than a little kids toy (or was, considering that it was discontinued). If you ask me, Bionicle had a story that was as big as Star Wars or Lord of the Rings,really fun online games, and was a really fun toy to play with. Keep up the good work guys. I can't wait till release!

More re-purposed than discontinued, it's being carried on as Hero Factory.

Don't even get me started on that little kids toy with a totally lame story! It is not worthy of being Bionicle's successor in my opinion.

Bohrok hasn't full analogs in Skyrim. If we find a good animators, then make the second chapter of the mod with Bohrok and Toa Nuva.

God, does this bring back memories. I was a huge fan as a kid, I owned every set from 2001-2007 (i.e. right after the cord holding up Voya Nui broke). I actually won a couple of LEGO Magazine design contests and had my creations featured in it a couple of times, that was the coolest thing as a kid. Used to hang around BZP all the time, back when Greg Farshtey used to hang around there (does he still do so?). Even though I "aged out" of them in 2007, I was still quite sad to see that they had been discontinued.

I wish you the best of luck, and if you need any advice on the project, feel free to contact me at eljhhck@gmail.com. I have a TON of experience in the Creation Engine and previous Bethesda titles (check out Alton, IL for FO3 and Ethas: Embrace of Destiny for Skyrim), and although I won't be able to help directly, feel free to shoot questions my way.

Thanks for the good luck. It's very pity that you can't work with us. You could greatly move the project. I will write to you if I have any questions.
