Bionicle based post-apocalyptic plot?
So, after playing too much fallout, messing with Bionicles too much, I came up with a plot idea. It'd basically be a alternate version of the story of the Bionicle (post metru-nui), with different protagonists and a different history.
In long, here's the idea:
Mankind had marveled at its latest invention, Protodermis; an organic substance, an artificial lifeform of sorts that clung to machinery. This allowed for the creation of living machines, creatures that could operate far beyond the capacity of standard computers.
However, the golden age was cut short by a nuclear war, which wiped out more than 98% of humanity, and killed most naturally occuring life on Earth.
But, like the mass extinction before it, it allowed new species to rise up from the ashes. The Biomechanical creations of humanity took many of the ecological niches that existed before, creating a robotic ecosystem.
And then, on the island of Mata Nui, they found...Mata Nui. Project MN was designed to head a project to regrow organic life on Earth, reversing the damage caused by the mass extinction. But, not all of the Machines supported this idea; one in particular, Makuta Teridax, decided to kill Mata Nui and hide his body underground. He succeeded.
And now, 300 years later, the Matorans have formed six societies on this island, keeping mostly to themselves. However, recently, the Rahi have been acting very odd...
And so, our heroes have to investigate and see what's going on.
