You can post prompts for me, if you like, and I'll almost certainly write a few at some point or another. :) I mostly like to use these prompts as kind of warmups before I start writing in one of my novels. As for others, sure, but they'll have to make their own topics for that sort of thing.

Prompt = Herakles meets Thor. They go fishing... for what, I don't know. Something big and scary perhaps?

Will the actual nature of the world's cosmology be explored later on, and perhaps even explained? Like, I'd love to see if the world views from the different mythologies are somehow combined. I hope Yggdrasil is a part of it, for sure.

Guess that makes Hero Factory the biggest failure Lego theme yet.
I mean, if they couldn't even sell it with the Bionicle brand you KNOW it sucked ass.

That was both due to the fact of LEGO being lazy with story, not so much with the CCBS. However, some of the designs they did for thew BIONICLE sets were even horrible. As a diehard BIONICLE fan since 2000 (it started a year early in Europe) I've followed the stories and sets for a long time. I know the behind the scenes of why it failed this time. General laziness and not even knowing where the story was going at any given time. It was a shame, really. The G1 storyline was so epic, jam-packed with lore, and ripe for expanding upon in a Legend of Korra kind of way. So you din't have to dump the prior backstory on anyone, at least not at the same time. And not all of it.

Many BIONICLE fans are now saying, though, that a normal system line version would probably sell better today. I don't know about that. And I would think it a little sad if that was what we got, honestly... I wish the story could continue in comic form, like how G1 Transformers is doing now, even alongside the newer Transformers series. At least to tie up loose ends and finish the online serial stories.

Can we come up with prompts for you (and others, if they want to attempt them as well?)

In Topic: Nova Refuge Official Q&A

Reason I asked question number 2 is that I've seen many authors fall into a trap where travelling distances suddenly make no sense or are too inconsistent. Here's just hoping that won't happen. And even if it does, it's no big deal. It's the story that counts.

EDIT: V.Metallic, Scorp posted a Nova Refuge short story this exact year. It's still alive, just, these few years are the years of Wulfgard. It's like when a producer or actor takes some time off from a beloved franchise to work on something else.
