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!

Our project is not just started, but we have slow progress due to lack of experience in our team. So we need some help.

You and you team have done a great job with the character models, the masks and added abilities such as wind gust. A question I would like to ask is how far in the future could we expect a toa race and armor plug-in? And if so, then could you give us a set time period or date?

No. We will move to next years (2002 and 2003), and will make assets from further years (2002-2006). No expended universe.
