Mr. Farshtey, can you please answer my question please?

this off the bio wiki from yesterday quest
“I don’t know,” said Orde. “I had to break contact before I learned who he was. But he’s been waiting over 100,000 years to return here, concealed in another body … and I saw flashes of what he has planned for this world. He has to be stopped, Gelu … if there’s still time.

1) Wouldn't it be more likeley for Va- to be time, Ig- to be Life, and ??? to be creation?

Of the 80+ books that you have published, which of them, if any, are non-LEGO?

At the risk of breaking the rules (no side conversations), I'll explain my reasoning a little more, though it'll be my only reply since I don't wanna push my luck:
From what I've noticed, there's no rule stating elemental prefixes have to be derived from a Kanohi name. As far as I can tell the only ones to do that currently are Light (Av, Avohkii) and Shadow (Kra, Kraakhan). Most prefixes outside the main six are based on other words, such as Psionics (Ce, Cerebrum), Jungle/the Green (Bo, Botany), and Lightning (Vo, Volt).
Ultimately I felt prefixes like Vi or Ge would sound better rather than ones derived from Ignika or whatever word will never be used for the Mask of Creation, while still retaining relevancy with their origin words. Va (Vahi) sounded better to me than Te (Tempus), however.
That said, here's hoping these get accepted someday.
As a side note that was meant to be a reply to alienduck but it looks like I wasn't able to add quotes. :/

I had three novels published in the early '90s and wrote or co-wrote a number of roleplaying game books.

I would say, given his behavior, that the largely benign rule of the GBs was something he had lost patience with. They created things, but then failed to take responsibility for their creations or intervene forcefully enough to stop disasters. I think Velika intended to take a .... firmer hand, and was eliminating as many powerful wild cards as he could.

Greg,what would happen if a revived being on the Red Star was killed? Would he/she/it be revived a second time? Would it keep on happening as long as a body is left to recover?
2013-08-30 15:28 UTC–5Permalink
That is actually a great question, Daler, and I have a weird answer for you. No. The red star's sensors were programmed to sweep Mata Nui -- not its own interior. So if a revived being is killed WHILE ON THE RED STAR, the machinery won't know it and they will not be revived, The only way revival would happen would be if someone set things moving manually.

Thank you, Greg! Wow. Okay. So, if the revived being was killed and then taken to the remains of the Great Spirit robot, would he/she/it be revived? Also, how would one set things in motion manually? Would they take the being to the revival machinery? Again, thank you for that wonderful answer.

Greg, I read in a previous post of yours that you never liked the idea of Vakama turning evil in 2005. If you didn't like the idea:
A) Why was it used?
B) Who (if anyone) would you have liked to turn evil instead?

What is the written language of the Great Beings? In their lab on Bara Magna, they had Matoran writing on the walls. Also, do the Agori use the Matoran writing system?

How would the toa nuva deal with a swarm of kirikori nui(locust rahi) if the swarm invaded their home to eat the vegetation?

I have a fallow up question on this, could it be possible the kestora where killing off some of the ebings in the red star when things stoped working? It seemed to hint that in the story.
