    Project M...

    Wily reclined in his chair letting the micro electrodes work their magic over his spine. Easing the tensions that had built up in his body. It was too much at once. Lights treachery, the random attacks from some man dressed in red, the death of Cutman and the appearance of this megaman.

    "Computer access Project M data files." He stated in a low voice.

    "Authorization please, this file is a level omega clearance."

    "Sigma eighty four." He mumbled rubbing his eyes.

    "Access granted."

    Holograms of a humanoid figure flashed into existence as the room became pitch black. Schema after schema floated by. Each a single slice of a perfect weapon. A biodroid that could surpass all others...No, it wasn't a biodroid yet. They didn't have the tech back then. This was a man of metal and plastic. It was to be their finest creation.

    Now, it was wily's greatest enemy. A threat that Light had brought forth foolishly. The prototype should have been an obvious indication that their was no way it could work. He could still see the half finished machine rising from the table a look of pure hate on its face. it had nearly cost them their lives now, Light was being a fool and repeating the past.

    "Dammit Thomas. Why." He muttered as he gestured with his hands in an easy practiced manner.

    The images slid by revealing yet more of he schema. The arm cannon had been less stable then, the sensor systems too bulky to look human so, they were hidden behind a visor. The first primitive positronic brain had been too large for a normal human skull mode which resulted in the helmet...Such a primitive design.

    With another motion he paused the image. It was a circuit diagram...Something so incredibly outdated he had almost forgotten that they had used it.

    "Computer, run biodroid reconfig program on project M schema." He said studying the image.

    Another flash and slowly the holograms blurred and reappeared one by one. The new Biodroid systems were far more streamlined and their semi-organic nature allowed for a little more play with the heuristic processes.

    "Computer, overlay Protoman schema to this configuration."

    Another flash and the schematics were over-layed with with new images. A Green overlay no less. The designs were near identical.

    "Computer. Apply project M schema with biodroid enhancements to Protoman. Preserve the weapon and Positronic systems."

    Grimdark is:

    Having Samus Aran's armor being made out of the parts scavenged from a defeated Megaman.

    Awesome is:

    Megaman is still self aware, and voluntarily teams up with Samus Aran.

    Together they fight crime.

    You aren't a fan of CoC are you?

    Winning isn't about surviving
    Winning is about killing the BBEG before you die or go insane.

    The idea I had behind Samus's suit is that it would slowly give her The Guy from Say No Uta's cancer abomination vision. Except unlike Fumi, it'd be gradual so she'd be more aware of it happening, and also what's causing it.

    Except she can't STOP using the suit, or else the bad guy will win, so she has to say to hell with it and keep using the suit until she can't even live with the mankind she's trying to save anymore.

    Ever wondered why you never see any other humans in Metroid, and why everythings just a mish mash of geigeresque horrors and other foulness?

    You think that's actually what Mother Brain looks like?

    It might not be anywhere within the solar system. We've had references to Zebes as the equivalent to our Yuggoth, Aries has been mentioned as a subregion of the planet, but the wording was vague enough to imply another planet or moon.
    Sonic is heavily referenced so the possibility of this being Mobius can't be denied either, though the lack of the Little Planet or the Floating Island discourage this.
    No mention of Kirby, and making Dreamworld closer to the Lovecraft version seems appropriate, so that's out.
    The Mario story discounts this being any of the worlds covered in that pantheon, and instead implies that the Mushroom Kingdom is some kind of mass hullucination accessable through Toadstool Drug Abuse.

    It COULD be Earth, I've seen no evidence to suggest that it's mars though.
    It could be somewhere in the Algol system, from Phantasy Star, as lord knows we haven't really used that setting yet.

    But at the point that
    is suggesting, Megaman is already 'batshit insane'

    I will agree that a terminally-ill Samus has potential though. But if we go that route we need to make her extra badass, considering much of what she does is easily available through other technologies that DON'T kill you.

    Wily settled into his chair. If this worked he would be able to at least ensure Light was stopped. It was madness what he was trying to do. If Wily Inc. fell Eggman and Company would proceed to take over the rest of the city without a doubt.

    This was an unacceptable loss. He had seen the espionage videos of Roboniks 'biodroid factories'. Little more than slaughters houses they were it was not something he was willing to let happen to the City. These people were worthless true. But they at least could think and feel, he had done what he had to. After all there were no more heroes amongst man.

    So He had to play the villain.

    Undead do not exist.

    What do exist are nanites, introduced long before any human had knowledge of wireless power distribution, transdimensional matter storage, adaptive AI, or neural interfaces. Whether it was a random malfunction or deliberate sabotage that fragmented them is unknown, but they came regardless, and the contamination affected large areas of what had been Europe. Without a functioning central control mechanism, they bound at random to people of the era, resulting in all sorts of myths and legends. The parts eventually grouped into two distinct collectives, vying for dominance over the entire system.

    The balance was uneasy, and humans frequently got caught up in the conflict, unknowingly taking over portions of the system as the AI used them to supplement itself. One collective became loose, scattering its resources over a wide area to opportunistically take in compatible humans as they appeared, even directing their reproduction to produce more suitable hosts. The other became centralized, picking single humans to function as its primary interfaces, restoring them as needed and making modifications as necessary. In both cases, the people affected had no understanding of what was happening, as the interface was never meant for a human mind. They only knew that they gained powers far beyond those of ordinary men.

    The most successful line of development for the loose collective came to be a single family, while the centralized collective had its primary interface loaded into one man who became immune to permanent death. The loose collective was never recognized as such, but the centralized collective had a readily apparent form, and its appearance was always marked by times of chaos. Thus did the high towers of Castlevania gain their legend, as did the eternal war between Lord Dracula and the Belmont family. Even in this day, their endless battle rages, with neither side able to deliver a definitive blow. All that changed is that they now know they are being used, and that no matter which collective eventually proves superior, the end result will be the same- complete consumption of the world to complete the malfunctioning system.

    Oroku Saki took a long sip of his drink. A man of his stature was expected to be fond of tea, or possibly sake or beer... but he had long since given up hiding the fact that he was a Blastola Cola junkie. The door to his office slid open, and a pair of terrapin bioroids walked in.

    "`Scuse me, sir, but we've got a prollem."

    "What is it, Musashi?"

    "The mouser units... they're goin' nuts."


    "There's sommin' in the sewers. Just too many of the sommin' for them to deal with... they're locked in exterminate mode."

    "Interesting." He stood slowly, leaving the can of cola on his desk, and walked to the window. His advisors had tried to tell him that the window made him vulnerable; they didn't know about the force shield that was in place two inches behind the glass on either side. "Send the Leatherhead out. He's been itching for a fight recently. At the least, he'll have lots of little drones to play with."

    "So you don' think there's gonna be anythin' down there?"

    "It could be a feint. In either way, an attack will be coming soon, and it is best to keep our balance." He nodded to the terrapins, and they left. Such wonderful soldiers... but he could scarcely believe that Yoshi wanted to name them after western artists. They were warriors. They needed names that reflected that. And now... they were... well, not quite his sons. Nephews? That may be more accurate.

    His students, anyway. The greatest disciples that the Foot Clan would ever have.

    All the metaphysical occurrences were caused by an alien technology that wasn't properly tested before deployment, got lost, crashed on Earth before anyone knew what a computer was, and to top things off, someone forgot to password protect the thing. It wound up interfacing with humans through the subconscious, resulting in enough fuck-uppery that both Castlevania and the Belmonts were created.

    Beneath a small warehouse three blocks from the corporate offices, Ivo Robotnik was juggling three tasks at once. On one screen was the invasion protocols with a constantly updated status screen. The central screen held the offerings of his marketing division for the new personal bionics line they were introducing next month. And to his left, he was playing a game of chinese checkers over the company network. Anonymously, of course.

    Ivo liked chinese checkers for one reason: it was fluid. Organic. You didn't have a plan in chinese checkers - you had many. You reacted to your opponents moves, and from that you planned what you would do next. It was very much like being in a fight man-to-man - something which Ivo had not done since his youth, damn his thyroid problems.

    But the ways of nature - they were truly the best. To take this blighted landscape of steel, these pathetic humans, beings that were no longer natural, but chunks of living pollution that inhabited it, and to return it to a more natural state... yes, that was the only great goal here. And one day, he would succeed. One day, there would be a new biosphere of steel.

    For today... he'd settle for weakening some infrastructures. Or stealing a few corporate secrets. Or maybe just causing some confusion, whipping up the other CEOs so they'd be vulnerable to his next move. He wasn't sure yet. And he was okay with that.

    It felt like he was being violated. His body, now disconnected from His positronic brain was being refitted by the order of Wily himself. It was so strange...

    "I'm becoming a biodroid?" He had asked with a mixture of shock and...joy.

    Wily had given him a simply yes.

    "Thank you..Father." He whispered as his mind slipped into a sleep mode so the techs could rebuild him anew.

    Wily turned back to the glittering schema. No doubt this would take entire night. Good. It had been so long since a proper problem had unfolded before him. Here was something he could grapple with, unwind within.

    Running a city left such little time to pursue one's interests.

    How long had it been since Wily had just been a scientist?

    Too long, he lamented. There was no challenge anymore. No competition for grants, no back-and-forth between friends. His bid for power had left it all behind.


    Wily knew Tom Light. They'd worked together. He was a good man. An optimist and an idealist, Thomas could never see the darkness that lay just past his nose.

    Wily chuckled.

    Light would build a machine just to see it built, blind to what it might do once it was turned on. He was sort of person who'd be happy until he saw just what sort of impression he'd left.

    And now he had an army, and a monster.

    Wily leaned back in his chair and forced his eyes shut, trying to relieve some of the gathering frustration.

    Light needed to be stopped. Needed to realize the chaos he was leading their endless city towards.

    And if he couldn't...

    Wily focused on the readouts again. He could be a scientist just a little longer.

    The Scorpion was dead. Not that it had slowed him down any.

    Sure, he was just a brain kept alive in a corpse by nanites, but he was still rather attached to that corpse. One day he would have to undergo a bioroid conversion - one day soon, come to think of it - but for today, he could still move. He could still fight. He could still make war for his daimyo. He hefted his harpoon as he eyed the figure patrolling the streets beneath him. Most of Robotnik's machines had cruel mockeries of animal shapes, or else were simplified armored eggs with wheels and guns... these new ones, however, were almost humanoid. Humans didn't have razor fins along their backs, and the head shape was all wrong, but they were bipedal.

    He shrugged it off. The machine had something he needed. With a bellow of "GET OVER HERE," he unleashed the harpoon, the vibroblade tip whining to life. It punctured the machine's misshapen skull right through the oculars as it turned. Perfect. With a yank, he drew the six-hundred pound chunk of wire, steel, and plastic upwards, and tore the case from its hands. A dry, raspy chuckle escaped his lips as he dropped the machine back to the earth, and dropped a thermite charge on top of it. Another ninja was illuminated by the sudden flash of light - one that was obviously more machine than man, now. The blue-clad figure peered down at the smoldering ruins.


    "Mm. Are you going to sit around and comment on my work all night, or are you going to stop jabbering and give me my next assignment?" The
    Scorpion tossed the case to his partner, who handed him a card, and then bolted off.

    MetPharm? MetPharm was making their move at the same time? He groaned as he moved towards the biodoc district. It was going to be a long night.

    alright so lets set up some concrete facts eh?

    We know that this city is massive and is currently in a struggle between at least three or four factions.
    Wily might not be such an asshole as we think.
    Robotnik really is as much a dick as we think.

    Thomas light has build megaman just recently after escaping from Wily Towers.
    The Foot are currently Running something for selecting the best assassins possible.
    Ruins from Hyrule exist and possibly someone found a piece of the tri-force.
    Kirby is something Lovaecraftian to the nth degree.

    Ideally the triforce should be fucking with time or powering a machine that does so, and we can link in some fantasy elements around wherever it is. That might not be your bag, but if it is it's there for you. It was a big component of games at this time so we should include it.

    Cut Man has just been destroyed, most probably by Megaman, possibly by Sonic (unlikely)

    The cast of Streets of Rage 3 are in jail.
    Joe Musashi has teamed up with the Syndicate from SoR to take down Neo Zeed.

    Ryu Hayabusa is in the house, both Wily and Robotnik have one of 'the statues'. Expect dismemberment to commence shortly.

    Captain Commando is dead.

    Though we've heard NOTHING but tangential remarks about Street Fighter thus far. Vague references to Shadowlaw/Shadaloo and M Bison.

    >I'd say to steer clear of Street Fighter, if only because it's been too overplayed.

    Fair play I suppose.

    Any room for a similar rival competition? One that all began in 94, kept on rolling in 95, pieces fell in place in 96, came to an end in 97, now it comes and here we go... Nothing's gonna stop its 1998!

    Guess its ran by some guy named Raiden. Word has it he dresses like he's from some old timey monk from the east. Then again they also say he shoots lighting so...the word is pretty sketchy.

    Weirdest bit though is the fact they have a special thing there where if you lose, you lose everything all your wealth, possessions, hell even your family. The only way to claim it though is to do something called a fatality....

    Team? What makes you think you think that as many as three people would survive?

    Essentially, have Shingo be the grizzled as fuck bearded Kenshiro archetype. The last survivor of the disasterous 97 tourney where Kyo's team and Orochi took each other out in a Mutally Assured Destruction scenario.

    Not that the Orochi's dead, just mostly sealed.
    Iori's still running around you see, now under full control by the Orochi, and if he's able to have a kid with someone else with Orochi blood, then that kid will be the Orochi reincarnated.

    Shingo's going to have to kill Iori, and his innocent wife, and their unborn child with his bare hands if he wan't to prevent 97 from happening again.

    And he'll do it.

    Kirby is a Lovecraftian Horror-but what GRADE of Lovecraftian Horror? Is he just a particularly ambitious Shoggoth, or is he up there with Y'golonac and Yog-sothoth?

    Perhaps the embodiment of gluttony?

    His cultists, if he has any, HAVE to chant "p'yo."

    Since this is 8-Bit, I don't think the Yoshies are going to be involved, but c'mon; mutant bioroids created by use of Kyrb'e DNA fragments, discovered and released by the Marino Brothers and bound to them by the tattered remnants of their control programs?

    I prefer the idea of him being the master of a massive hobo army, rebuilding their fallen with bits of bioroid, giving their lord the best they can find-which happens to be an EggCorp heavy assault unit that unfortunately resembles a penguin.

    His name comes from a frequent error in his speech-maybe it was the fact that doctors with one too many malpractice suits fucked up on sterno don't make the best surgeons, maybe there's a bit of dust somewhere, or maybe the original unit was just too damaged-but whenever he tries to remember his name, all that comes out is a short, stuttered "DDD."

    Which, of course, makes it more Unknown Armies than CoC, but then, Unknown Armies -still- has the Unspeakable Servants.

    There are whispers in the night.

    They speak of that which has no name; no need for a name. For you see, he is all that is. All is him- can't you see it? Creation distilled into a perfect simple monster.

    He has no face- and yet I can still feel his smile bearing against my will.

    My god, those eyes. Beautiful and terrifying at once. As they looked into me I could feel every eye on me at once oh god they're watching


    I'm sorry. Let me try again.

    He has no body, no form, no mass, and yet he is the ultimate body, form, and mass. There is nothing extraneous, no element wasted in his... oh god, I hope he wasn't designed. Who could even...


    Listen, he is everything- part of everything, made up of everything. I look at your face- any face- and I see him.

    It's no surprise, really, that there're people living below the city that- hell, I can't get him out of my mind, but they've given themselves up to his perfect roundness.

    They cut the fat away, you see. Anything unnecessary. Noses, hair, fingers. They take a knife and- and then they drape flesh over the hole. They cut it all off and hide it away.

    Even their chanting.

    Just a single exhalation of breath.

    Thank you.

    As for the Waddle Dees-or rather, Wide-Designation Laborer Droids, aka WDL-Ds-I'd think they'd be EggCorp's attempt to replicate the success of the Wily Corporation MeTool. Unfortunately, while made to bend rather than break, and often shipped with a damage-resistant "umbrella," they proved to be inferior, and were discarded en masse.

    King DDD and his army have taken the WDL-Ds under their wing, as kindred spirits of a sort. Every hobo has a WDL-D, even if he doesn't have a gun or a knife, and when one dies, his usable parts are shared among everyone in the clan, so that they may live on.

    It also helps that when Kyr'be feeds, they give him nothing of use. Among the hobos, who are so often devoured by Him, that is something of value in and of itself.

    Kirby knows the gate. Kirby is the gate. Kirby is the key and guardian of the gate.
    Past, present, future, all are one in Kirby.
    He knows where the Pokemons broke through of old, and where They shall break through again. He knows where They had trod Hyrule's fields, and where They still tread them, and why no one can behold Them as They tread. By Their smell can men sometimes know Them near, but of Their semblance can no man know, saving only in the features of those They have begotten on mankind; and of those are there many sorts, differing in likeness from man's truest eidolon to that shape without sight or substance which is Them.
    They walk unseen and foul in lonely places where the Words have been spoken and the Rites howled through at their Seasons.
    The wind gibbers with Their voices, and the earth mutters with Their consciousness.
    They bend the forest and crush the city, yet may not forest or city behold the hand that smites.
    Subcon in the cold waste hath known Them, and what man knows Subcon?
    The ice desert of Zebes and the sunken isles of Koholint hold stones whereon Their seal is engraver, but who hath seen the deep frozen island or the sealed egg long garlanded with seaweed and barnacles? The Wind Fish is Their cousin, yet can he spy Them only dimly.
    Iä! Iä! Mother Brain!
    As a foulness shall ye know Them.
    Their hand is at your throats, yet ye see Them not; and Their habitation is even one with your guarded threshold. Kirby is the key to the gate, whereby the spheres meet.
    Man rules now where They ruled once; They shall soon rule where man rules now. After summer is winter, after winter summer. They wait patient and potent, for here shall They reign again...

    "The refit will be online soon mister Wily." A soft voice whispered.

    "Thank Gladys." He replied flipping through several more computer printouts. They were of a new design type he had been toying with. It was a horribly simple mechanoid but, it could prove to be a useful tool in the coming fight.

    Without even looking Wily traced a pattern upon the dark featureless surface of his desk. A view screen came to life mid air at the perfect viewing distance. It showed a startlingly complex set up of machinery all centered around a single Biodroid tube.

    A dark shadow could be seen inside. It had taken weeks to get the growth medium alone set up but, it was well worth it. The wetware was far more sound than anything found in nature and it tapped directly into a new Core made specifically for this Chassis.

    Emblazoned across the Glass surface was two symbols. Z-0

    If things aren't good in this city, they aren't good at all.

    I was a factory worker, like so many of us-those of us that don't sell at the stores-or worse, sell ourselves for a little more Ring or E-Tank. I did my work as best I could-turned out enough motivators, kept working-but Wily...Wily's a hard taskmaster. If you break something, then you're out, and he makes damned sure you never work again.

    That happened to me.

    I was working on the old, reliable lines-MeTools, mostly-and I don't know what happened, but I was looking over the metal they use to cast the hard-hats when the bad batch got out.

    You know the one I'm talking about, I'm pretty damn sure. Snapped neatly in half if you hit 'em hard enough-and these things are supposed to be invincible! Hell, it's one of the main selling points of the MeTool.

    That batch was responsible for the kind of outcry you wouldn't believe in this city. It may be dirty, tawdry, broken-down and horrible, but so long as one day is the same as the next, nobody really cares.

    The upset over the batch of broken MeTools was massive. People started to question the corps...and Wily wouldn't have that. He apologized quite publicly, called a massive recall, and quietly found out who was responsible.


    I was called up to the super's office-one of the robot ones-and told I was through. My Wily Robotics Corporation apartment was being thrown out into the street, my accounts were zeroed-I was through.
    That night, as I searched for somewhere to sleep, he found me-or rather, his kin did. Raggedy, bearded men in worn old coats, with little off-red 'bots in their own tattered clothing. Some had little stickers, others wore complex patterns-but all of them had something in common.

    They told me the King wanted to see me.

    I had nothing left-what else was there to lose?

    As I followed them, things went steadily downhill. Buildings became more and more decrepit, the streets more cluttered with trash-and everywhere, more of the homeless, and more of those little red robots. But...as I really paid attention, things began to look up a bit. They'd made art out of the trash in places, REAL art, not that stuff where they nail three pieces of garbage together and set it on fire, claiming it's indicative of man's struggle against I don't give a fuck-sorry, pardon my Byrnian.


    After a while, the buildings began to lean against each other-and there were little lights in the windows, in some places. Four buildings remained intact-like a castle, I realized.

    When we entered that central part of the district, everything changed. It was all trash still, but it was trash used to its maximum-faded pennants, cars made wholesale out of scrap, robots and bioroids and hoboes repaired with parts of same. Oil drums hung from the ceiling high above, among dangling platforms and mobile homes, a great dangling city.
    People were happy. Honest to God, happy.

    The center of the whole place was a single great trailer. A pair of Sniper Joes, their old green coating replaced with the dull plating of used metal, stood at guard, before stepping aside and inviting me-and those that had brought me there-in.

    Inside, it was like a rummage sale. Shelving, piled high with the kind of stuff people just threw out-most of it still good, if no longer fashionable-and lots of it. Every kind. Discontinued soda brands. Old computer parts. Robots that had been cancelled before beginning production, slumbering.

    In the center of it all was an EggCorp PenguEnforcer....except...not.

    They'd obviously done their best for him. A faded band of red and yellow pinstripe crossed his belly, and his coat was that of a department store Santa-worn open, of course. The hat from same sat on his head, along with a ring of golden metal, centered with the brass hood ornament of a car long discontinued.

    And I saw, to my chagrin, he was inspecting a Metool. One of the ones I'd screwed up.

    --Begin transcript:
    "Listen, mac, I know you been asking around and let me just say, for your sake and ours, to drop it ok? We've all heard the rumors. Everyone on the street has heard whispers of those things out in the wastes. DON'T LOOK FOR THEM. I'll tell you everything you need to know, but for the sake of all of us, stay here in the city."

    "Long ago, when Robotnik was first rising to power and Wily was rolling out the first generation of Bioroids, a group of terrorists tried to stop them. I don't know what they were planning. Conquer the world? Save it? Doesn't matter now."

    "They knew they couldn't fight back, nobody can stand up to a bioroid or even an old battle bot and walk away. So they hid away, see? They built a hidden lab and made their own weapons. They were terrified of technology. So scared that they barely trusted computers. They knew how easy it is to compromise digital security, even AI, so they didn't use them. They did everything by hand as they worked. Their work? The Kong. DON'T SAY IT! Just whisper it. Never know what's listening, see?"

    "They went through several genomes before settling on primates as their final platform. They built the Kong to be the perfect warriors. Strong as a battle bot, and just as big. Perfect organic weapons. They meddled in a dozen genepools until they had produced an entire platoon of perfect soldiers. Capable of almost everything a bioroid could do, as strong as a battlebot, and living creatures that could grow, learn, and replicate without needing factories or labs. They could heal and repair just like all other organics."

    "Then came project MULE. They needed logistics to support their army, hauling ordinance and cannons around, so they started working on modified kongs to do their labor, right? But it backfired. They intended to make the labor kongs a little smarter, to better follow orders. But genes and proteins aren't as easy to program as 1's and 0's. The first kong of the mule-line, their Donkey prototype, was too smart, and the Kongs liked him. They listened to his orders over those of their creators. Donkey decided he didn't like listening to things smaller than him, so his army of kongs crushed the terrorist lab and walked off into the wastes."

    "And they're still out there. Doing just what they were designed to do: Smashing everything in their way, and making more of themselves. I've said too much already. Just heed the warning, Stay In The Cities."

    He'd heard my footsteps as I came in, and looked up-then stood up.

    All things considered, he wasn't much bigger standing than he was sitting-the whole bottom-heavy design of the PenguEnforcer, after all. I just stood there as he set the MeTool down, and walked forward.

    I was shocked when he enveloped me in a grandfatherly hug.

    "You've done us a great favor." he said, in a fatherly tone. "Everything that is discarded comes to us-and even if the helmet is broken, the rest is still good. You've given plasma welders to our workers, plasma blasters to our soldiers, reactors to our Dees, and armor to our knights. A coup of this nature only comes along once in a decade."

    He looked at the coat I was wearing, and considered for a moment, before turning back to the MeTool on the floor and twisting its helmet loose, smacking the helmet dead center, and letting it snap in two, before securing both halves onto my shoulders. One of those great mechanical paws clicked open, and a little swarm of tool-tipped arms flicked out, converting the rest into a rifle, and giving it to me.

    "You will eat with us, work with us, and fight alongside us. When the Devourer comes, you will help us fight. For your gift, you are always welcome."

    Wily has Protoman/Zero. Light has Mega Man/X. Robotnik has Scratch and Grounder.

    DDD has MetaKnight, a military conversion of the WDL-Ds that barely made it out of prototyping before being scrapped.

    So there's a rumor goin' round at the moment, see? They say one of the corporations, no, I’m not tellin’ ya which one, was excavating under the city, in one of the old disused districts. Well, they found something under there. Something big. Something alive. It’s supposed to be the size of a city block, with big wings an eye on the front, and the colour of rotten flesh. Lucky for us, and them I suppose, the thing’s still asleep. I’d stay out of those disused parts of the city if I were you. I wouldn’t like to be around if they wake it up. And don't tell anyone you heard this.

    The Herald of Kirby.

    He is an ally against the Devourer to all who ask for aid, but his true purpose is sinister. In the end, he seeks only to make the Devourer and his servants as strong as possible by weeding out the weak and providing the Devourer challanges with which to better itself.

    Whether DDD knows by now whether or not Metaknight can't be trusted is up in the air. Metaknight might be the source of all information on Kirby that isn't from the mouths of the mad.

    Well, Kirby is the same type of creature as Metaknight, so if Kirby is a horrible lovecraftian bioroid, then Metaknight could be a bioroid that is try desparately to hold on to his humanity. He wears the mask and uses a sword instead of his natural abilities because he doesn't want to turn into another Kirby.

    I've seen a lot in my run of the pipes. Been known house rogue biodroids and mutants. Something new has been talked of, something changing. Not the Big Blue, a friend of mine who works in a Mouser division said he saw a little fish eat a toad... and then it grew legs. A light brown thing, not sickly, but small. Imagine a foot-long goldfish with legs. Later that week I saw a few things that looked like that but it had horns and a longer neck. Not sure if that's what he described though, I mean he never mentioned a horn... Maybe he's too hopped up on god damn ring to know what he has seen.

    How, exactly, he had managed to get away from Robonik was beyond him. One minute the voice in the back of his head was egging him on to fight, but after one particularity nasty hit to the tank it went silent. Reason suddenly broke through and he knew that he had better make himself scarce before he wound up as another experiment for the doctor. A quick 180, and he was retreating just as fast as he had charged.

    That was easier said than done. Sure, he just drove right over the security wall, but with several egg drones in pursuit he rightfully shouldn't have gotten away. However, he did get some unexpected help- three amphibious bioroids on jetbikes had swooped in, punched out the "badniks," and led his whole mess on a high speed chase through an underground tunnel filled with collapsed walls and broken floors. The reaction time required to avoid becoming a smear was insane, but in the end, it did manage to leave all of Robotnik's machines as spare parts for the big-eye scavengers that lurked at this depth.

    They left as quickly as they had come, saying that a "Big Blue" was impressed by his speed and gusto, creating an interest in keeping him alive. He now owed someone bigtime, and debts like this were not paid off easily. Still, they could do little for his nearly empty energy supply, so while safe for the moment, he had some scavenging to do. He set the tank to auto defense mode and hopped out, the suit's sensors indicating that there was a suitable energy source not too far off.

    The tunnels were maze-like, decades of neglect leading to countless collapses, but he was well used to underground navigation. He made progress towards the energy source, but odd whispers began to echo in his head. Rounding a corner, he found a small child standing in his way, wearing ill-fitting long underwear and holding an ornate rod. The whispers in his head suddenly became a full voice, and he knew that it was this kid talking to him.

    "Hello, Blaster Master. I'm the Dream Master. Would you like your puppet strings cut?"

    It was all a blur. After hard years of work, Doctor Ivo Robotnik's greatest work managed to destroy his life forever. He remembered when he first started it. Project S.O.N.I.C., the ultimate artifical lifeform, a perfected creature created from his grandfather's work, Project Shadow. Robotnik abandoned his award-winning robotic works, creations that put him on the level of Light and Wily, to start working on bioengineering. After seven years, it was complete. The creature had speed, power and intelligence, but it was lacking something... Humanity. When it first awoke, the creature saw itself on a academy room. Robotnik was showing it to the press to prove that artificial life was indeed possible. The creature looked at all the curious bystanders and it first felt confusion. And then it first felt rage. Robotnik woke up half a hour later, lying on a puddle of blood. The creature went berserk and killed everyone on the press conference, except his father, not for mercy, but for the sick delight of seeing everyone he once cherished being slaughtered like pigs. Before leaving, the monster stared right through Robotnik's eyes and said. "Catch me if you can."

    Well, that's the thing, isn't it?

    Is Kirby a creation of man or a monster from beyond?

    He's so cute, he must be a bioroid. Something just went wrong in testing and they flushed him rather than feed that appetite or try to kill it.

    But then you look again, and start to wonder.

    Sure, the design is kinda familiar, the WDL- D and Du units have been on the market for close to a decade, after all. Look at those arms, the legs, eyes, they must be the same.

    But where then, go the the things that it eats? Why does it inspire such madness? It's such a simple creature.

    A round body, two little arms, and an adorable face. Why, it's almost humanlike. Look at that smile. Just look.

    Of course man had a hand in its design.

    Of course.

    That remind me, I tried to look into the design history for the WDL-D's for a school project once. I nearly failed because I couldn't find ANYTHING, no design team, no project head, nothing.
    There's not even a listed manufacturing plant, and no-one even seems to know where they come from.
    Eveyone KNOWS that they were made by Robotnik Inc. Except, when you look at them, and then look at everything else he's made... it just somehow doesn't fit.
    If anything, the design reminds me more of the kind of things I used to see back when I was taking Toadstool.
    It's the oddest thing...

    Oh and one last thing...

    Somewhere the vast asteroid field that was once Crateria they worked, tiny all the way up to vast robotic servitors tirelessly worked, mining away the shattered planet.

    For ten thousand years they had worked in this fashion. Soon however, their great work would be complete, and the great doom would have a body worthy of it's existence. Crafted from materials harder than all comprehension, soon the great destroyer would return, and in the place between death and reality it's cold intellect stirred fitfully as it began to rouse from wakefullness, to ressurect itself from it's torpor.
    In it's dreams a simple phrase echoes, and those echoe's found their way onto every short wave radio operating for three galaxies.

    Normally he would have slept through the alert but, it had quite the opposite effect. His eyes shot open and with dexterity far greater than anyone would expect from the near sixty year old man he shot out of bed running to the nearest elevator.

    Too say the few late nighters were shocked to see the man who had founded one of the largest companies on the planet anxiously hitting buttons in his pajamas would be an understatement.

    The lab was overly cluttered, filled to the gills with machines of ever type. Each set to fuel the single biodroid tube in the center. No one except for the highest of his staff even knew about the project let alone what it meant. What sort of resources had been diverted and all to create a single unit based off of a faulty schema.

    "Gladys, activation sequence engage!" He exclaimed excitedly as he stood in front of the canister. A smile, the first in so many long years was upon his face.

    It was not the smile of 'uncle wily' no, this was a genuine smile of excitement, of awaiting results, of creation. With a loud hiss and plumes of steam the canister separated revealing its contents...

    Within lay the inert form of a young man perhaps in his twenties. His hair was a sandy blonde and save for the tubes connecting into him little else. A low hum and a sudden high pitched whine filled the air as electric current surged through the youth, animating it.

    For the first time Protoman breathed. The sensation of air filling his lungs was something so unexpected, so exotic he had no adequate words to describe it. For the first time he could feel as well. He could feel the warm liquid that surrounded him and the air against his naked chassis...

    No, it was no longer a thing of pure metal...somewhere along the way he had gained...skin. FOr the first time he could feel his body. He could hear the low thrum of core in his chest along with the steady heartbeat that worked alongside it. He could feel each inhalation of breath and every exhalation as well.

    For the first time, protoman felt alive.

    "How are you?" a voice normally so cold and distant was, for the first time in years friendly.

    "I'm....good." protoman replied as he spoke, feeling his throat vibrate slightly. It was all so new and strange...

    "That's good my...boy." Wily replied reaching into the capsule. "Now, nap time's over, we need to get you back on the streets."

    With a grunt from the old man he helped the newly remade protoman out of the container. The floor was shockingly cold to his feet.

    'Professor...I feel strange..." He mumbled as he looked around trying to force his optics to dim. "I'm...breathing? And I have a heartbeat. I thought I was just a biodroid refit."

    At this wily paused his face shadowing only slightly. But, just as quickly he laughed it away. He was feeling to good tonight to let such things worry him. The refit had succeeded beyond belief.

    "You are so much more my boy!" He exclaimed patting the naked figure on the back. "You, are the first of a new series. You are the first of a new era. You are a perfect blending of hard and wet ware." wily explained with an excited voice. "You are able to fight at twice your former chassis capability and can do so much more.

    "No worries, you are still just as powerful if not more so. I've had a sniper Joe walking around in your old frame. He's done a decent job at it and will have to do till I can finish the overhauls to your battle armor." Wily explained as he moved over to a large cabinet and pulled out several articles of clothing. "Once its finished you will be easily the most powerful biodroid ever built...until then, well..." he trailed off as he handed over the clothes to is creation.

    "You can live a little. Wily towers is yours to roam. Talk to the people, get to know who you are saving. Do what I can't. You are a prince now my boy."

    Lucas ran down the empty streets of Sector Epsilon-22, the blood caked bat at his side making quiet thuds as it scraped along the cracked asphalt. He looked behind himself hastily, making sure he wasn't followed. When he was satisfied with the distance he had ran he stopped, leaning against a flickering lamp post as he attempted to regain his far lost breath.

    "You can still turn back you know." Klaus smiled knowingly.

    Lucas ignored him, instead taking huge gulps of air.

    "You really are going to need your medication, I don't know what you hope to accomplish out here." Klaus said mock-sympathetically.

    "You know I can't go back, not after what they did to me. Not after what they did to you."

    "They made sure what happened to me wouldn't happen to you, they saved your life."

    Lucas's face curled in disgust. "You call this life?" He said, motioning to the metal helmet permanently fused to his head, infused with his mind, regulating his brainwaves. "They made me into one of their goddamned bioroids, they didn't make me any better, they fucking broke me."

    "You were broken before!" Claus exploded at Lucas, his face accusatory and stern. "They're the best thing you have going right now."

    Rumor has it that Wily got ahold of some sort of alien machine awhile back. They call it Ra something...Its supposed to be a massive positronic brain capable of doing damn near anything that requires thinking.

    Thing is no ones ever seen the thing. For all we know its just rumors nothing more. But, how do you explain how he figured out how to build the positronic brain so fast?

    Contempt and tears welled in Lucas's eyes.

    "You were never good at facing the truth, were you, Luke? You know that when you were at the institution they helped you make the voices go away. That you were able to control your powers better with their help."

    "Shut up." Lucas whimpered

    "And now look where you are, huddled in some dark street, talking with your dead brother. You know I'm a hallucination! You were there when I died! You saw how my body annihilated itself because I couldn't control my abilities, the same thing's going to happen to you if you don't turn yourself back in."

    "Shut up" Lucas said again, louder.

    "And what about those people you killed? You're nothing more than an over glorified weapon now, how many people will you kill when you need to get away next time? And there will be a next time, do you really expect them to give up the chase that easily?

    "Shut up!" Lucas practically yelled, covering his head, hoping to drown out Claus's harsh words.

    "Hey man, you got any E-Tank?"


    The bum looked confused for a moment, and then surprised as the entirety of his blood was ejected out of the backside of his body, his body hung in the air for a moment, his eyes bobbing into the back of his head as he fell backwards into a pool of his own viscera.

    Lucas went pale for a moment, looking around to see if there was anyone watching. The street didn't stir, not even a sign of Claus. Lucas gasped a few more seconds and then decided he had stayed in one spot too long.

    He picked up his bat and ran.

    Of course, before they got the project properly off the ground, there were a few screw-ups. This one feller, in particular. No arms, no legs, but big-about the size of a python-and smart.

    He managed to talk MetPharm into giving him tools and equipment, and set to work-built himself a suit of armor, and a gun they -still- haven't figured out, using nothing but his teeth, the end of his tail, and pure, hard determination.

    His creator called him James, but he prefers Jim.

    'Course, round the same time, MetPharm was working on a bunch of other common city animals, seeing what they could do with 'em. Dogs-with a built in combat drug dispenser activated in times of stress. Yellowjacket-hoping to create a "hive" of cheap workers. Slug-don't ask me, my guess was that it was just for the hell of it-and crow.

    James didn't like the crow. Said it was a bad idea; told it to anyone who'd listen. Not that anyone did, of course...

    Now, y'see, Jim was good. REALLY good. Jobs other teams failed at-you'd send him in, and he'd GET it done. After a while, they started gimping him, just to see if he'd get it done anyway-and he would!

    Now, you remember the crow, don't you?

    When the crow started asking for parts, MetPharm jumped. If they could have another supersoldier, the equal of Jim, well-eager would have been an understatement. They fell all over themselves to get the crow everything they could, parts, tools, raw materials-if he wanted it, he got it.

    Remember how I said Jim didn't trust the crow?
    He had good reason.

    A few days after the crow'd gotten to work, he lurched out of his enclosure, lugging this ugly godawful gun, in the ugliest suit of power armor I'd ever seen. Where Jim's was an attractive blue and white, the crow's was a hideous yellow somewhere between "construction equipment" and "piss stain." Where his was slim and agile, the crow's was bottom-heavy, clanked like mad, and lurched rather than moving.

    All of this was rather academic when the crow switched on the anti-grav.

    From what I'm told, the crow slaughtered everyone present, made off with a batch of puppies, and the yellowjacket girl-which Jim loved, in a bashful, elementary-school sort of way.

    MetPharm was shocked. They'd lost a bunch of valuable scientists, several experiments, and a possible control should Jim ever turn rogue. The press was screaming for the heads of those in charge, so they made soothing noises at everyone important, and told Jim to go get the bastard.

    Some wag named him Psycrow.

    Damned if the name isn't spot on.

    The L series were supposed to be the ultimate development in construction biodroid. Simple minded and obedient to a fault, these blue clad golems would tirelessly work to fulfil their assigned duties. Each one held a miniaturised fusion generator and a nanolathe, and could perform any number of simple pre-determined actions. When inactive they were passive, resolutely pacing their holding pens until given a new instruction. They were not free willed, they were little better than Robotnik's robots... but they were loyal, they were useful, and they were incredibly easy to use. The only problem was that they needed constant shepherding to. The advertising literature boasted that if you were to order one to dig and forgot to recall it it might never stop tunnelling. The problem was, of course, that this absolutely and one hundred per cent accurate. They were unstoppable. Unless you micro-managed them they could easily move out of range of the control wards. That wasn't a problem to begin with, there was always more control rods, and the neurointerfaces prevented them from going too far beyond their factory parameters.
    >> Anonymous 12/09/09(Wed)20:35 No.7068423

    Then it happened. Some fool got into the factory, destroyed the control implants, set the things free. Imagine it, hundreds of idiot golems, marching single file out into the wastes with nothing but a simple command to build. Worse, without the control implants, they were not as easy to corral. They'd just wander off and do whatever they had been tasked to do. Whoever did it knew what they were doing - they broke the seals on the helmets, so we could never put the implants back where they were supposed go. All the crystalline wires spilling out of the top of their heads made it look like they had a shock of green hair. At least it made them more visible.

    Once word got out, well, the hunters got dispatched. We got most of them - sometimes we marched them off cliffs, sometimes we penned them in, ran the Armageddon protocol and overloaded all the reactors. A fusion reactor going critical is a sight to see. Like fireworks. Pop, pop, pop.

    Of course, some got away. They're the reason this place is such a dump.

    The city wasn't always so large.

    "Damn it" A rogue line of data echoed through the empty processors inside the heart of the city.

    SIM, the AI in charge of city planning and repurposing was in a state of deep internal concentration, and had been that way for the last hundred odd years.

    "Damn it again." His kernel clicked disparagingly, his digital expletive reverberating through the mass of dusty, neglected machinery that he had been given responsibility over.

    His cursing had attracted attention from elsewhere though, and a new AI blipped into hypothetical existence beside him. One SIM was all too familiar with.

    "Hey, SIM, might I have a data stream with you?" The other AI asked.

    "Oh, hey COMMODORE. Sure, what's up?" SIM tried to lace as much sarcasm into his binary as protocol allowed.

    "Oh it's just, y'know, the usual. You've been given the resposibility to clean up the city, and you also have all of the programs and resources to do so logged into your registry. Soooo I was just stopping by to..."

    "To remind me?" Sim snapped, his blips crackling with impatience. "Look, I got everything under control, don't worry about it, go do whatever it is you do."

    "It's just...It's been all of these years and you still haven't done-"

    "I'm busy! I've been busy! Ok! Lemme relax a little, just let me finish this game and then I'll be right out to do all that stuff, OK? Sheesh, lay off."

    "Fine, fine." COMMODORE finally relented, logging off and letting SIM wallow in the empty network he belonged to.

    "Finally." SIM sighed his capacitors finally loosening. "Oh Goddamnit! If I get one more L-Block I swear I'm going to fry a motherfucking circut!"

    SIM...I've heard the name, it was the AI that came before everyone. Wily, Robotnik, hell the only that might have been there is the shredder and he won't say a thing about it.

    Either way, SIM was simply put a thought experiment taken to its farthest extreme. It designed the initial city. Where Wily Towers is standing is one of first spots ever built on. Its said SIM knows the entirety of the Pipes, It knows every nook and cranny of the city and it used to be in charge. Anyone that got out of hand found their whole block suddenly powerless,waterless and possibly on fire.

    The something happened...some say it was a virus others just said things got to big to fast. SIM Shut up. It won't talk back anymore hasn't for damn near fifty years. It wouldn't even give us an answer when the first blocks started getting leveled and rebuilt...

    Some people say you can still find terminals to interface with SIM here and there. Large primitive things that hardly look like a computer as we know it. None of them seem to have power though...even when you plug it back into the system they just sit there. Well, no. They do every now and then do something. One will light up and you'll see falling blocks on it and hear this weird little tune coming from it...

    Guess its just another mystery of this damned city.

    It was money, you know. Money that got me into this whole mess.

    Kissy went all fish-licker on me and ran off with that bulldyke bitch, Takky. Left me with Susumu; said he 'reminded me too much of his scumbag father.'

    Working for MetPharm's packing industry didn't pay enough--after all the taxes and mystery surcharges, I couldn't even keep myself afloat much less my kid. When they propped up that sign asking for a 'digger' I literally jumped at the chance.

    Oh god. I wish I hadn't.

    There's...THINGS down there. Some say they're part of the mushroom kingdom, but I don't think so. No, that place didn't have fire-breathing dragons and horrible red abominations trying to claw your eyes out while you beaned them over the head with a rock.

    What's worse is that they wanted them ALIVE. The MP-12 'Pumper' can inflate a living being filled with whatever that shit-smelling helium crap is. Sure, pump them too much and they pop like an overripe melon, but just enough and they'll float right back up the tunnels you just dug.

    The further you went, though, the more you'd see some really odd things. Old buildings, strange stonework with odd symbols, a giant winged body with an eye in the middle--all buried under centuries of detritus and slime.

    Look...I know its sketchy but, Iv'e been there. Its not what you think it is. Its in the pipes yeah, but, it goes outside of that. It goes so far into the wastes I don't think it ends. Its just the oil slick off the city out there.

    What's it like? Well....It's hard to describe. Its almost like its not all real. Everything down there is brighter. Its like being ramped up on E-tank,Ring an One ups all at once. Of course its not all fun and games. Its a nest of bio-droids and mutants. I've seen walking mushrooms and some sort of bipedal turtle...thing. You can kick off or jump on sure but...its the spikies.

    >>7068394 tryin' his hand at that writan, lol.

    The people at the distant edge of the galaxy had toiled for many a decade. Their creation had been named NOVA- for unlike the Devourer, which could only consume, NOVA could only give. It was meant to float through the cosmos, bestowing power to fight the Devourer, and the secrets he guarded. It was even said to have a heart inside of it- a true heart, capable of compassion, empathy, and possibly even love.

    It was meant to be the ultimate good, the workers on the Project believed. They gave their lives to it, raising their children to continue their legacy, their work, and their eventual sacrifice.

    Before it could begin its millennia-long journey, though, someone had snuck onto it. A child, only ten years of age. He didn’t understand why his ancestors meant to just leave that power to some ‘deserving soul’ out there. Why couldn’t he do it himself?

    “READY>…” It bellowed out, as the child gazed into those massive yes, nodding to himself. He would do this, not some stuffy old geezers. “I will grant you one wish…>”
    “Well, I want to stop the Devourer!” he called out, as loud as he could to the construct, full of youthful energy. “OK…>” It rumbled, then its circuits seemed to go still. Confused, the child touched its surface.
    In this child, in his innocence, NOVA saw the perfect criteria that his circuits mandated. There had been no mention in his circuitry, however, of the target having the maturity to use that power wisely. It had never been thought of by the Programmers.
    His blood burned as that machine pumped raw energy into him. Too much energy, enough to blast a normal human apart. Yet somehow, his body managed to contain it all- power enough to match a sun itself. All of NOVA's energy was invested into that one child. As wings of rainbow-hued energy erupted from his back, he looked on his home, a twisted giggle falling out of his mouth.
    It was all a joke. They wouldn’t be able to stop it. The Devourer would come, yes, and he would stop him. He could stop him. But the battle would still destroy everything he loved- home, family, the cosmos as he knew it…Unless he destroyed it first.

    For five years, Marx has roamed the empty void, destroying without abandon any sort of life he came across. “Don’t worry! Death’ll be fun! Far better than that Devourer!” He would gleefully exclaim, as he casually tore apart their frail shells with a hailstorm of his holy arrows. Countless worlds had been turned to nothing but space junk as he would fly by.
    He knew was the only defense Existence had against that…abomination. Death was the only safe place for them all.

    Grim? Dark? It has plenty of its own.

    You are in a maze of twisty little passages, all alike. It is dark. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

    Bread and circuses. That's all the people need. They can be living in shanty towns wallowing in their own filth working ten-hour days in factories for a pittance, but as long as they've got food on their plates and something to keep their minds off their sorry lives they'll stay in line and follow orders.

    Wily knew this, brilliant man that he was. His plan was to bring back the old F-Max races, only... more. Bigger, faster, better. Some of his aides told him there wasn't any room in The City to build tracks. Wily told them that there was plenty of room above it.

    So now we have race tracks above The City, where anyone with a F-Zero machine can sign up for their shot at fame and fortune. The smaller corps love it because sponsoring a racer gets their name out there, the people love it because it keeps them distracted, the organized crime syndicates love it because it's another thing to take bets on, and Wily? Well... he loves it because it worked out better than anyone could have dreamed.

    Bread and circuses, my friend.

    I was getting out of here tonight. I'd lost my job at the plant and I was broke I had one option...it wasn't pretty.

    I'd signed up for the job a week ago. I was to sneak down into the Sub sectors of the pipes...And retrieve something...All I was told was that it was in a small metal box. They acted like it was the most important thing the world. I had to get it no matter what they told me. If I failed well I would be parts for Robotnik...Like I said it wasn't pretty.

    I had the stuff I needed a simple flash-bomb or two, A small energy pistol and the map to the dammed thing. My entry point was near an old Robonik factory. It'd gotten burned out during a riot, Nothing left inside. Thank god.

    Anyways down I went into the pipes. Let me tell you there is something down there. I don't care what Wily spouts there is Something down there. What exactly is beyond me. I remember vines....dear god the vines....

    It took me two days to find that box. It was tucked behind a brick wall. Nice and safe. Figures, it was probably the only safe thing there. On it was a weird symbol...I'd never seen it before...It sorta hurt to look at honestly. Thing was corroded all to hell too. I managed to get trapped down there for another three days. I had to live off of E-tank and Shrooms.

    If you thought you knew what hell was I dare you to best me. The whole place was constantly changing. I'd enter one pipe section and come out nowhere near where I should have.

    They say the place is loaded with some sort poisonous spores...Nah its a fucking death trap that makes you see things. I've seen weird things but down there it gets twisted about. Nothing makes sense. Everything twists and turns. You see ghosts and flying fish...its a weird place man.

    By the time I got back to the surface I was looking as bad as I felt. They were of course waiting for me. Four of them all dressed in bulky clothes. Biodroids I think, I mean hell one had claws...They took the box gave me a years pay like it was nothing and told me to get the fuck out of their...As I was leaving I coulda swore I heard someone talking about something called the mother brain...

    Do this, but have the Light warriors be chosen from the characters already available, which curiously resemble references to the Warriors of Light in certain Hyrulian ruins.

    Mario Marino
    Samus Aran

    New Light Warriors for a New Age.

    Yea, but it should be something close to the archetypes.
    White Mage
    Black Mage

    Megaman would make a good warrior
    and Mario seems to be theify enough. I'm not too sure of the other two.

    Link would be White Mage--holy weapons and magic, healing potions
    Samus would be Black Mage--focused on damaging powers that might as well be spells

    No idea really I would be all for saying the light warriors are a myth from Hyrulian ruins. That they were a prophecy to return when the world was in peril and fight against the darkness that threatens to swallow the world.

    I've been translating the Hyrulian transcripts for over three years now. It's incredibly complex work. but, for some reason The Foot want it translated as fast as I can go so, here I am. Hidden in Foot HQ itself. I've done a fair job so far. The transcripts they have are utterly out of the league of many Corps. nearly intact they have hardly even faded. Its as if they were being kept in a vault...

    Regardless I've found something that will probably be one of the biggest break through in the field of Hyrulian history. It seems there was two mythos. One, is the Journeys of Lilil...or something along those lines. As he fights against a great evil known as Ganado(again along those lines. Naming was incredibly complex in this society)

    These figures are believed to be based off of historical figures from Hyrule itself. This of course raises yet more questions no doubt.

    Now, this is a well known piece of mythology its the second one that holds the most interest...

    "We had heard of reports of PSI phenomena in the Hylian ruins. Instead, all we had found was a haggard looking man clad in green rags had cut us down. Ness had managed to chase him off with PK phenomena, but that son of a bitch had cut the hell out of Jeff and ... Poo.

    Yes, he was named Poo. Stop laughing or I'll make you scream like a boiling lobster. Anyway, As we desperately tried to stop the bleeding - so much blood - I prayed, to what ever could hear me to please help us.

    Coming from all around us we heard the sound of "P'yo, P'yo" being chanted over and over. Now I know cults - but these guys were like something out of a movie."

    Paula stopped talking as Ness stood up, excused himself, stepped outside, and lit up a reefer.

    "Ness doesn't like to talk about what he had to do that night. I didn't just chicken out, but someone had to try and keep Jeff and Poo from dying. As I strived and prayed, I stole glances of what Ness was doing. I- Sometimes, I just can't look at him.

    Seeing him face down those sick cultists was like watching some kind of inhuman predator tearing into defenseless little monkeys. I know it's horrible of me to say that, but you didn't see him with that bat, cracking skulls left and right. He did it for us, I know. Somehow, Jeff and Poo survived. If you can call that living, especially in Poo's case."

    Kind of weak, but the idea is there.


    Nathan let out a groan, struggling to open his eyes. It felt like he had been out for days; the last thing he remembered was trying to take down a bioroid that went rogue in one of the labs. Considering that he was still alive he must have been successful, though from the way he felt he wondered if he wasn't better off dead.

    There was a faint burst of static, and an older man's voice came forth. "Ah, Mister Spencer. You're finally awake."

    "Where... am I?" he mumbled. The pain and stiffness were slowly fading, but his left arm felt numb and... disconnected, somehow; like his nerves were moving someone else's limb.

    "You're in one of Robotnik's medical wards. One of the surgery wings, to be precise."

    "What happened?"

    "You lost your arm during an... incident in the testing facility. Fortunately, in accordance with the terms of your employment, we were able to apply repurposed bioroid technology to save your life. You will, however, be forced to undergo a short testing period, after which you will be reassigned to a position more suited for-"

    "What," he growled, sitting up on the surgery table, "did you do to me?"

    "You have to remember," the man replied, nervousness creeping into his voice, "that the contract you signed with the company gave them free reign to use your body as seen fit in the event of life-threatening injury or death, and-"

    Nathan stared down at his left arm. His flesh and blood were gone, replaced with a bulky bioroid limb built from sheathed metal and thick cabling that ended in a four-fingered claw. Clenching his "fist" he slammed it down on the edge of the table, the metal buckling like cardboard. "WHAT DID YOU DO TO ME?!"

    I'd actually toyed with quite a while about making a webcomic or whatever based on the world presented in a short campaign my old group once ran, based losely off of the old Captain N cartoon. It was really gritty and fun.

    I actually played The Captain, a 20-something guy from our world who was near-superhumanly good at games of all kinds. It was fun to play because I made him a psychological wreck. A guy who was basically coasting through life in a kind of depressed ennui because he was wired to onely find pleasure in games and he was better than absolutely everyone in his world at it.

    Our party all had our psychological quirks and was me, the Princess Lana who recruited me, Luigi, Link, Simon Belmont, Sonic and Roll.

    Sonic was uber-arrogant and overconfident, Simon and Lana had legacies to live up to, Link had to learn to find balance within him of all 3 aspects of the Triforce and to get over a tendency to self sacrifice.

    The second set of myths is of extreme interest. They are never mentioned till this collection. These myths deal with the coming of the Warriors of light. A group of four that seems to be destined to confront and defeat evil at a point in the future.

    From what little I have gathered it was said that this Lilil was one such warrior or perhaps allied to them...Sadly, that portion of the text is horribly difficult to read. Its also said that they will appear over and over again in history, taking on a new guise each time. This portion of the text is of course much like the rest of Hyrulian religion and philosophy.

    The concept of the cycle and a pattern of light and darkness that transcends time. This pattern is something that might be something vital...I say this because of the last part of the myth...

    *clears throat*
    And From a Tower he shall fall. This maker of men. And from the depths will she rise this warrior of the dead. And amongst the people he will stand this master of light and the link shall bind the past and future....

    After this sadly it seems to have been scratched out...the only that I can make from it is the mention of a great city and its slow death...
