Place Your Bet is the sequel to Distant Relatives.
Several individuals from the Unified Nation of Ottzello and United Republic of Cyrannus got together to toast to the death of Nexatru, one of the more villainous individuals in the Confederacy of Allied Systems, nevertheless, they had been invited to a huge party in the Loktia Resort. Some of the Republic's leaders, including the president, attended, while Zr'Ahgloth, the Kralgon Emperor and Tuolog represented UNO.
Loktia is a region of space somewhere between the middle and outer rim of the Cyrannus Galaxy. There is little there, asides from the Loktia resort, a hugely beautiful space station, home to the galaxy's darkest crime lords. The station is home to gambling, illegal gladitorial combat, drug trading, and much more. Its past is largely unknown, although it has been in position of some of Cyrannus' richest. Past owners have all died from assassination. The current owner, for this reason, has not revealed his/her name.
Apollo's first impression of the station from the interior was that it must have costed an incredible fortune. Everything was perfect, fine, and represented Cyrannus' finest arts, foods, materials and craftsmanship. Not a single person around looked like the sort of person who'd have been seen as a criminal. However, as he walked towards the restaurant in which they'd toast to Nexatru's death, the criminals became more apparent. Several people gave Apollo glares and weird looks, but with Zr'Ahgloth looking threatening as he walked onwards, they knew not to start a fight.
The reached the restaurant, were greeted by butlers, and set down. They were all given a drink, all drank it, and watched as a hologram of Nexatru appeared.
Nexatru's hologram - Hello there, friends and enemies! If you're watching this, I must be dead. Oh well, I must cut to the chase. You all drank the wines I gave you. Tasted lovely didn't they? Well I must let you in on a secret. I put poison in that.
Apollo dropped his drink, and glass smashed. The others looked at each other, and realised that they'd been tricked; at this point of losing themselves in the moment, The System was not actively preventing poison.
Nexatru - Yes, I had to. If you want to acchieve the antidote, you must represent my team in the Loktian Gladiators. You must be aware of it, surely!
All were aware besides Apollo.
Kralgon Emperor - Loktian Gladiators. Several of the crimebosses back in the Ottzello Sector visit it. So it happens in this galaxy? Wwell, we're in a hell of a situation.
Nexatru explained what was at stake here, how much courage and strength they needed to win, and the other contestants they were up against.
Apollo - We must achieve that antidote. Also, it'd be good to look into this station...
Tuolog - With war in Cyrannus, there plenty of ways to use station like this.
Apollo - Indeed.
Zr'Ahgloth - IMMA BEET UP DA GUY WHO POISONED ME
Kralgon Emperor - He's dead you moron!
Zr'Ahgloth - WAT DA HELL
The group was escorted to their new appartment in the station. They'd have a tough challenge, and how long would Apollo be away from the Republic with the war occurring?
Your New HomeEdit
Kralgon Emperor - This is our new appartment?
They had walked into a luxurious appartment, with a lot of room. In one corner, there was technical equipment everywhere, weapons and armour, reminding them not to get too comfortable.
Apollo - It's great!
The Kralgon Emperor sat down in a chair. He was surrounded by some of the most high-tech equipment, perfect for the cmbat situations they were about to go through. He connected himself into the hardware.
Kralgon Emperor - Ok, so for of us. One must be Technical Support, some must be fighters, and there must be a Medical/Food Support.
Apollo - It looks like you're already technical support.
Zr'Ahgloth - HUR I WANNA BE DA FIGHTA
Kralgon Emperor - Of course you'd be the fighter. It'd be stupid not to give you that role. As for medical support.. either Tuolog or Apollo.
Apollo - I'm not a fighter. I suppose I could take the role as a medic.
Kralgon Emperor - You'd have to be the chef as well.
Apollo - That should be fine.
Zr'Ahgloth - MAN I DONT WANT DIS LITTLE DOOD SITTIN ON MA SHOLDA
Kralgon Emperor - Tuolog will be your eyes and ears, adn at the moments when Essence is permitted, will assist you immensely there.
Zr'Ahgloth - WAT DA HELL MAN I GOT DESE EYES AN EARS HERE WHY DOES I NEED HIS
Kralgon Emperor - Because *cough*yourssuck*cough.
Apollo - Dn't you play that role, Kralgon Emperor?
Kralgon Emperor - Not really. Tuolog has to. With our System, it's easy for Tuolog to see what I see when needed, so we can easily view the map. Tuolog can view what these arena maps can view without even needing to do that; he has strong mental power, as well as essence to help him.
It was all sorted.
Voice - Greetings contestants! You are up for your first battle... hehehe good luck...
The team were up for a ride. The first of their 5 battles before the final battle, which would win them the antidote.
Zr'Ahgloth and Tuolog were marched onto a small capsule.
Tuolog - Prepare yourself.
Zr'Ahgloth - I WANNA KILL DEM
The ship took them onto the arena, where they heard the crowds roaring.
Zr'Ahgloth - HUR HUR AR DESE THE PEEPZ WE IS FIGHTIN
Tuolog - No. They spectating.
Zr'Ahgloth - WIMPS

The crowd cheered.
Zr'Ahgloth - DESE PEEPZ AR PROVOKIN ME MAN I WANNA EET DEM
Tuolog - Stay here. Concentrate.
Announcer - This round- let's keep the challenge nice and basic? A plain old fight to the death. They will be fighting Tralkikianoe, some Cyrannian mercenaries and some of the most vicious wildlife around the galaxy!
Zr'Ahgloth - WE IS FIGHTIN GEEKZ HUR HUR HUR DATS EASY
The crowd cheered loud, then suddenly several capsules full of those mentioned arived on the arena.
Tuolog - Attack now.
Zr'Ahgloth - YEH MAN IMMA BATTA DEM
Zr'Ahgloth jumped on the enemies, started to kill them. Then, the Kralgon Emperor spoke to them using The System's radio-like communication.
Kralgon Emperor - Well then, I'd suggest Tuolog directs the mercenaries and Tralkik to fight each other; the wildbeasts he can do himself. Zr'Ahgloth remember, don't jsut attack, defend Tuolog! Lose him and yu're dead!
Zr'Ahgloth - SHUT UP MAN I KNOW
Tuolog started to chant in his weird, guru-like fashion, and made them fight each other. The crowd gasped.
Beast breeder - Hurr, if my beasts are the only things that gon' fight you.. ATTACK!
Several wolf-like creatures pounced at Zr'Ahgloth, who punched most in the face until there were too many.
Zr'Ahgloth - IMMA SHANK DESE DOG PEEPZ MAN
Zr'Ahgloth grabbed his shanka and started to attack.
Tuolog - I see you controlling.
Tuolog fired Gyronic blasts at the breeder. He was exhausted from the effort with Essence, but kept going.
Breeder - Arrgh damnit!
He ran off the arena...into the pool of lava surrounding it. He was supposedly killed.
Tuolog - Heheheh. *starts to attack the other creatures*
Zr'Ahgloth - *kills more creatures* HUR DESE EINT A CHALLENGE MAN
Anouncer - *to himself* dangit, this might give us bad publicity... *to everyone* It's wild out there!
Zr'Ahgloth - OI TUOLOG CAN I KILL DAT ANNONCA DOOD
Tuolog - Maybe later. Concentrate.
Zr'Ahgloth - SIK
Zr'Ahgloth killed more. After a while, everyone on the battlefield was dead.
Announcer - Congratulations, Team URC! You are one of 3 teams to survive this round, and you aren't an old contester!
Zr'Ahgloth - YA MOMS OLD
Kralgon Emperor - Ha, we broke a record. Oh my god... watch out!
Tuolog - Something big coming... get ready.
Zr'Ahgloth - NUFFIN IS BIG ENUFF FER ME MAN
They heard loud footsteps.
Zr'Ahgloth - HUR HUR I WANNA SEE WAT IS DIS
The huge door on the opposite end of the arena was smashed, and a huge beast came out and roared, as did the crowd.
Zr'Ahgloth - HUR I FOUGHT ONE OF DESE BEFOR PEECE OF CAKE
Kralgon Emperor - It's outfitted with some biological and technological implants to improve its performance, speed, and healing. You better watch your back.
Anouncer - It's... Dudecrusha! Our oldest boss, Dudecrusha is an epic creature from the planet Groodrub, which is currently located in Borealis.
Zr'Ahgloth - OI DAT NAME IS FAMILIAR...cant remember wat is it tho probably sum pizza hut
Tuolog - That your homeworld.
Zr'Ahgloth - DATS DUM MAN I IS BETTA DAN DIS DUDECRUSHA
The breeder was on the beast's head attached in a suit.

Breeder - But have you killed THIS 'Epic Peep'?
Zr'Ahgloth - WELL NO SINCE ITS ALIVE NOW BUT IMMA FIX DAT
Tuolog - Hmm. You should not understimate Loron strength.
Anouncer - *to himself* Mocking us and our organizers? Damnit this won't go down well... *to the crowd* Well, let's see how little we have estimated you!
The dudecrusha charged at a phenomal rate, trips over and falls onto the crowd, crushing several to death. the rest of the crowd cheer as dudecrusha jumps over the lava and back on the arena to fight Zr'Ahgloth.
Zr'Ahgloth - OI STOP SHOWIN YORSELF COM FITE ME
The beast pounced on Zr'Ahgloth, but trips up and falls flat on his face. The crowd gasped, and Zr'Ahgloth got up and spit; the ground had been shaken, but he was missed.
Zr'Ahgloth - HUR DAT HARDLY HURTS
He jumped on the beast and starts to shank it. Tuolog fired Essence blasts at the beast's head. Dudecrusha roared loudly and slammed his fist down on Tuolog, who dodges as Zr'Ahgloth punches at the beasts' head and killed the breeder inside.
Tuolog - Now then let's see what you capable of.
Tuolog invaded the beast's mind.
Zr'Ahgloth - I IS DA BEST MAN
Zr'Ahgloth threw the breeder's body at the lava. The beast roared, struggled, and eventually became under Tuolog's control. Crowd cheer for Team URC, while the anouncer's jaw dropped.
Anouncer - ...it seems Team URC are victorious...
The crowd cheered louder the before.
Tuolog - Big beast fun to control.
Zr'Ahgloth - IN YOR FACE
Kralgon Emperor - Well, I couldn't have done it better myself. Get back to th appartment, and well done!
They were taken onto the capsule, and sent back to the appartment.
Apollo - Excellent work there. We showed them who's boss!
Zr'Ahgloth - I IS DA BOSS MAN
The anouncer stepped in.
Anouncer - You sure are... hehehehe.
Zr'Ahgloth - OI IMMA EET DAT GUY

Zr'Ahgloth charged at the anouncer, and was electricuted, knocked ou for a minute.
Tuolog - What you want?
Anouncer- I just poppd in to see, guys? What's wrong?
Kralgon Emperor - If you are here to taunt us, be sure to know Zr'Ahgloth will be back up in a few moments.
Anouncer - No, no, no, no no. In fact I was about to ask you the same thing. What's up? You realise ratings were down 1 star on that last fight?
Tuolog - We winning was not in plans, I suppose.
Anouncer - Well, yeah. I just wanna say, y'know, go easy on my boys.
Kralgon Emperor - Why should we?
Anouncer - *to himself* Cos, if you don't, I got more ways than just an arena to get rid of you... *to them* I'm asking you as a friend. Cos round here, yuo aren't gonna make many...
Tuolog - I see what you think. You will backstab us.
Anouncer - *to hmeslf* Hell ya! *to them* Hell naw! If I backstab you, it'd make us look worse than you've made us look already.
Zr'Ahgloth got up.
Zr'Ahgloth - WAT DA HELL WAS DAT
Anouncer- Nothing, nothing, nothing...

Anouncer - But you see I could say the same to you...
A shadowy figure stepped in.

Anouncer - Oh and, y'know them collars you're all wearing? Well... think of your System. It's the same concept; well, it doesn't cntrol, besides the fact that step out of line one time and I'll use it to electricute you.
Zr'Ahgloth - LOSA IMMA BREAK DESE
He tried to rip the collar off... and was electricuted on the spot.
Zr'Ahgloth - OW MAN DATS DUM
Anouncer - It can also self destruct, blowing your head off. Example:
Apollo's head was completely blown off.
Kralgon Emperor - Oh what the hell. When the Republic finds out...
Apollo - When the republic finds out what?
He shrieked when he saw the corpse of clone of him, with a blown off head.
Zr'Ahgloth - WAT MAN IM CONFUSED
Anouncer - That's right. You can't trust us... you never know when we'll replace one of your guys with a clone for a few seconds...
Zr'Ahgloth - GO TA HELL
Anouncer - Hell? You're in it... mwahahahaha. Well, not literally, but still!
The Kralgon Emperor got on his computer and discovered that they entire thing was being broadcasted across the network...
Tuolog - You cruel. You pay for this.
Anouncer - Yeah I know, I'm gonna go over budget at this rate thanks to your team, and it's already starting to cost more of a fortune than what we earn...
Zr'Ahgloth - IMMA CRUSH YOO MAN AN ALL YOR PEEPZ
Anouncer - We'll see about that tomorrow...
The screen was turned off, and the team ate then got to bed.
Media are a weapon...Edit
The alarm clock sounded on them, and they all woke up.
Zr'Ahgloth - WOOP WOOP TIME TA KILL SUM MOR PEEPZ
Kralgon Emperor - We're not on at the moment you moron! We have to eat first!

Kralgon Emperor - Wait a sec-
The screen turned on.
Zr'Ahgloth - I LUV PIZZA MOR MAN
Apollo - Shut up! We're watching something!
Speaker - You are now watching Zaarkhun news!!
Tuolog - Zaarkhun?
The screen changed froma logo to show two human presenters.
Speaker - Hello, I'm Harris, and here's my assistant Harriet. The big headlines recently:
Harriet - Falrik Zaarkhun's brother Henrik has taken over from Zaarkhun at the moment, people are wondering how Falrik has a brother who lives in the present but this news will never get public. Interview coming later.
Tuolog - I remember Zaarkhun clone on Tralkik base. I wonder what he up to giving brother control over Consortium...
Harris - Looks good, but we need to know the REALLY big headlines as Zaarkhun Games has, once again, broken internationally... and intergalactically! Yes, what everyone else is hearing is just a drama show is in fact real fighting. And lately the newest team have broken through...
Zr'Ahgloth - dese ooman talkas is gettin on ma nervs alredy
Kralgon Emperor - It seems Zaarkhun controls this place. And I though we already had enough of him in Ottzello...
Apollo - Fill me in on who Zaarkhun is?
Tuolog - Biggest crime lord of Ottzello. Once was body of Vyro'Ralzan leader Zargoth.
Kralgon Emperor - Hell, we've gotten into something big.. anyway, let's listen some more.
Harriet - ...but now that Team DCP are no longer participating for Ayrai'Shikua related reasons, who's gonna be the big team? Team URC?
Harris - Looks like it. And trust me, Team URC are a bunch of bad boys...
Pictures of Apollo murdering Asgord appeared.

Harriet - I mean look at them, the poor, poor kids... ANd let's not forget what Tuolog did-
Pictures of Tuolog trapping several humans on a poison gas-filled world appear*
Tuolog - They make us look bad. They understand we are threat to their plans.
Harris - But, oh my! Look at this Kralgon Emperor bad boy!
Picture of his attacks in the Second Ottzello Galactic War appeared.
Kralgon Emperor - Well...these are true but still.
Harriet - It's almost depressing how he turns on his own like that... by the way those pics were taken last week and depict what the Emperor does in his spare time.
Kralgon Emperor - What?! Those insolent little...
Harris - It's really sad. But the worst of all is Zr'Ahgloth... *sniff sniff* I'm gonna cr...
Harriet - It seems Zr'Ahgloth is the guy who is so strong that he beats up little kids for fun. Of course, all of UNO let him do it, and he takes pride in stealing candy from innocent little Xhodocto kids... *snif sniff*
Zr'Ahgloth - hur hur hur hur i is da best
Everyone stared at Zr'Ahgloth.
Kralgon Emperor - They are lying about you, idiot!
Zr'Ahgloth - meh dats pretty much wat I do
Tuolog - You wish you steal candy from a Xhodocto, Zr'Ahgloth.
Zr'Ahgloth - ILL DO IT ONE DAY MAN
Harris - Well, it seems there's a dark side to these so-called "do-gooders". When we announced it on the net, hehehe...
The camera cut to Henrik Zaarkhun.
Henrik Zaarkhun - Yeah, you've learnt the truth boys! There were a couple people however who didn't believe it was them... so of course we've roughened them up and dealt with them now.
Harriet - Well, funny we asked the audience what they though of Apollo. We got the following responses:
Little girl - Apollo is sooo *cuts to a different voice* evil and diabolical... I hate him and I will destroy him!;;
Kralgon Emperor - ...pathetic.
Young teenage Ottzel - Yo man, Kralgon Emperor is *cuts to a different voice* the most crule individual in the universe!

The team watched as a team consisting of several of Cyrannus' most wanted people fought in the first round.
Apollo - You're up next.

Tuolog and Zr'Ahgloth were taken on to the arena, heard a huge roar from the crowd as everyone cheered their names.
Zr'Ahgloth - hur hur da peepz like us now
Tuolog - Concentrate.
Anouncer - Ladies and gentlemen!! You are watchihng the most realistic gladiator drama in the universe, and next, let's hear it for Team URC!
There was an enormous cheer, and Zr'Ahgloth beat his chest.
Zr'Ahgloth - GIMME PEEPZ TA KILL
Anouncer - Though this time, there will be a tough challenge up for them.
Kralgon Emperor - Guys, it looks like they're preparing a sort of obstacle course...
Tuolog - Obstacle course? Hmm...
Anouncer - Tonight, we're preparing them the most fierce obstacle course. They will have to run, jump, as wel as use intelligence, cunning and bravery to survive to reach the end boss!
Zr'Ahgloth - DATS DUM MAN I WANNA KILL PEEPZ NOT GO TO SUM OBSTACLE THINGY
Several platforms appeared, leading up to a higher point up the arena.
Anouncer - Begin!
Their flamethrowers activated, and deactivate after a few seconds before reactivating.
Zr'Ahgloth - HUR HUR HUR DATS EASY I CAN PASS THRU DAT WIF NO SCRATCHS
He charged through but ends up at the top pillar on fire, so Tuolog used Elemental energy to help him get better.
Tuolog - You resistant, but not invincible!
Zr'Ahgloth - SHUT UP MAN I IS INVINCIBUL
Anouncer - Ouch, that looks like it hurted!
Zr'Ahgloth - YA MOM HURTED SHUT UP
They kept going. The next are several round, spinning platforms. Zr'Ahgloth jumped on one.
Zr'Ahgloth - WOAH MAN IM GETTIN DIZZY
He span so much, he was thrown off to the other side of the room, smashed against it, and fell on to the platform below him. Tuolog struggled to hold on to Zr'Ahgloth's shoulder.
Kralgon Emperor - Phew, that was a close one.
Tuolog - Watch what you doing!
Zr'Ahgloth - SOZ MAN I GOT DIZZY
Anouncer - And now, rock climbing!

The crowd cheered.
Zr'Ahgloth - WE ROK MAN

Zr'Ahgloth - DERES A ROLLA SKATE MODE? SIK!!!!
Tuolog - Oh no...
Zr'Ahgloth set it, fell off the side, but was warpd back up by Tuolog.
Kralgon Emperor - You idiot.
Zr'Ahgloth - YA DAD

Person sitting beside him - Don't reveal your identity idiot!
Roshisiz - Meh, I'm getting old.

Tuolog - I feel familiar presence...
Anouncer - What's the hold up? It seems people from the crowd are holding our two big boys up! Get down, guys! C'mon!
Zr'Ahgloth - SHUT UP MAN IM GOING
He started to climb down, slipped up and fell, warped back up by Tuolog.
Kralgon Emperor - The rail! Grind on it with those boots!!
Zr'Ahgloth - HUR MAN I CAN NEVER HAV FUN
He grinded on the rail. Several buzzsaws appeared on the rail, bu Zr'Ahgloth jumped up to avoid them. Several hovering Tralkik appear alongside to try and shoot him.
Kralgon Emperor - Use your dual machine pistols to take them out! With the System, you aiming should be perfect!
Zr'Ahgloth - SIK MAN I HAVNT USED MA GUNZ YET
He started to fire, and Tuolog fired too. All Tralkik were wiped out, and they reached the ground of the arena, to a huge round of applause.
Anouncer - We have winners! Now then, let's see who they'll be up against...
Zr'Ahgloth - FINALLY SUM PEEPZ TA KILL
Zr'Ahgloth - WHERES MA OPPONENT MAN I DUNT LIKE WAITIN
Snniper shot was heard, and Zr'Ahgloth looked to his left to find Tuolog flat on the ground, not moving.

Anouncer - Well, look here. It's Mr K!
Zr'Ahgloth - IMMA CRUSH YOO
Anouncer - Mr K has been a champion at Zaarkhun Games for a good while now. Once a bounty hunter wanted throughout the Quadrants, the Milky Way and many other places, now he works hear, and earsn his bounty by hunting contestants. This will be a tough battle for Zr'Ahgloth now...
Mr K - You read for this, big bug?
Zr'Ahgloth - YA MOMS A BIG BUG GO TA HELL

He fired his machine gun in Zr'Ahgloth's direction. Zr'Ahgloth dodged while firing his pistols. Mr K dodged too.
Mr K -It seems you're a lot better than I thought you Loron are... damn that System of yours.
Mr K fired missiles, and Zr'Ahgloth jumped away while firing.
Zr'Ahgloth - DA BOYZ DA BEST
Mr K - Ha, that hardly even hurt!
Mr K continued firing both weapons.
Kralgon Emperor - Zr'Ahgloth, listen! Mr K's weakness seems to be his strength in close combat. If you can provoke him enough to attack you at close range, you could well beat him.
Zr'Ahgloth - dats sik man *to Mr K* HUR HUR YOR BOOLETS CANT HURT ME MAN I BET YOO CANT FIGHT PROPA WIF YOR FISTS

Tuolog - Emperor, we need to talk.
Kralgon Emperor - What is it?
Tuolog - I feel presence in arena. Roshisiz's presence.
Kralgon Emperor - Oh?
Tuolog - He was in crowd, watching fight.
Kralgon Emperor - Hmm, if we get a chance, this is the best place to kill him without causing attention outside. I don't know what he could be up to. And this place sure doesn't seem like Zaarkhun to me...
Tuolog - Someone else with him too. Cannot say who was though.
Kralgon Emperor - Hmm, probably just one of his associates. Anyway, let's see how Zr'Ahgloth is getting along with his ego.
Zr'Ahgloth - ...SO I SMASH HIM AN DEN I ATE HIM HUR HUR HUR

Thug 2 - Things round here... you either bet throughout the competition, or don't bet at all. We can't *not* bet for either victory, can we?
Thug 3 - There's one way we can stop you- we're gonna have to remove you from the competition.
Zr'Ahgloth - OH YEH? WAT AR YOO GONNA DO DEN?
They slashed his throat, but Zr'Ahgloth's skin resisted it. The entire bar gasped and went silent, watching what happened next.
Zr'Ahgloth - DAT HARDLY HURTS MA LORON HIDE
Zr'Ahgloth crushed two of the thugs.
Thug 3 - As if that didn't kill him...
Tuolog - Watch yourself Zr'Ahgloth!
Zr'Ahgloth - YOR NEXT
Zr'Ahgloth attacked the third thug, who chucked a smoke bomb.
Zr'Ahgloth - ARGH MAN I CANT SEE
Thug 3 strapped a bomb to Zr'Ahgloth's back.
Zr'Ahgloth - OI WAT DA HELL WHERE AR YOO I WANNA EET YOR HED
Tuolog turned the bomb off before it blew Zr'Ahgloth up.
Zr'Ahgloth - COWARD PEEPZ TRYIN TA BLOW ME UP
Zr'Ahgloth spotted the thug, grabbed him, and ripped his head off.
Kralgon Emperor - And I though we were here to rest.
Anouncer - *walking in* There's no rest round here, mate.
Zr'Ahgloth - YOO AGEN
Zr'Ahgloth charged at the announcer's direction, and was electricuted. The anouncer signaled everyone in the room to get on with what they were doing before while he chatted to them.
Kralgon Emperor - What is it now?
Anouncer - Sit down.
Zr'Ahgloth - YA MOM
Anouncer - Guys! Guys, guys, guys, guys, guys!
Kralgon Emperor - What do you want?
Anouncer - Y'know the other day I was telling you you were bad for our competition?
Zr'Ahgloth - HUR YOR SCARED OF US NOW I BET
Anouncer - Lemme tell ya something; people earn money offf this through one way; the betting. They bet someone's gon' win, lose, etc.
Kralgon Emperor - Let me guess. You are losing a ton of money, huh?
Anouncer - Quite the damn opposite! Everyone bets against you winning, we earn money off them! You're earning us more money that way than ever!
Kralgon Emperor - Oh really? By the way, I want to know what's with the lies in the news, where you claim we are mindless murderers. Really? That was the worst voice editing I've ever seen.
The anouncer was taken aback, as if offended.
Anouncer - Lying? I was building up your bad boy image!
Zr'Ahgloth - I DUNT NEED DAT I IS DA BADDAST BOY EVA ALREADY
The Kralgon Eperor gave his 'you wish' look.
Kralgon Emperor - Everyone knows Apollo is the nicest person in this galaxy. Murdering Asgord children? He helped save them from extinction.
Anouncer - Exactly. Picture this; you're running a show that earns money off the bigest, baddest, meanest people ever beating each other up, and get higher ratings when the occasional do-gooder comes on and gets the hell beaten out of them by one of the most feared bounty hunters. And they think it's all dramatized, which of course it's really happening.
Kralgon Emperor - Anyone with half a brain can see through this.
Anouncer - Yeah but, anyone who does see through this gets hushed up. And you wouldn't believe how few people do...
Tuolog - You disturb me.
Anouncer - Well think about it. You're running the show and then suddenly you get given... 2 of the bigest do-gooders, and 2 of the most famous bad-guy-gone-good. Wat do you do? Expose a dark side of them, but exxagerate it. This way we still earna lot. Anyone who doesn't believe it gets the hell beaten out of them.
Zr'Ahgloth - dats a sik plan BUT IMMA STILL KILL YAS WHEN IM FREE FROM DIS COLLAR THINGY
Anouncer - Y'know yesterday I was thinking 'damn, they're gonna cost us too much money!' but now look? We're making fortunes outta you guys!
A businessman walked in.
Businessman - Hey guys!
Kralgon Emperor - Huh, what now?
Businessman - I wanna, y'know, exoand the merchandise for you guys. I mean a combat show is one thing we could go further...
Anouncer - Where all the BIG money is!
They all looked unimpressed.
Tuolog - We not your pawns.
Kralgon Emperor - We don't really need this. We are, after all, the leaders of our own nation.
Businessman - Oh, you want us to give you a bigger profit?
Zr'Ahgloth - AR YOO STOOPID DIS IS A DUM IDEA MAN
Anouncer - I should mention this'll all happen after the fighting, as well as during.
Zr'Ahgloth - I WANT MOR FIGHTIN MAN ALL YOO GOT IS PROPA WEEK WAT DA HELL
Anouncer - We'll be able to afford that if you sign this deal!
Businessman - My partner here tells me that you don't have any choice on the matter. It's this or die. Zr'Ahgloth - WAT
Zr'Ahgloth charged at them again, and was electricuted.
Anouncer - If we weren't about to make millions from you signing this deal I'd have made it explode...
Zr'Ahgloth - IMMA MAKE YA MOM EXPLODE
Kralgon Emperor - *to Tuolog* So? What do we do now?
Tuolog - We have to accept. No other choice.
Kralgon Emperor - *sigh* Fine. We accept.
Businessman - Great! For the kids, we'll make some action figures. For older audiences, signed posters, etc etc. Just the kind of merchandise people will buy!
Anouncer - Zr'Ahgloth, write your rap songs about us too. That gets us free advertising.
Zr'Ahgloth - yeh imma rap on HOW MUCH YOO SUK
Anouncer - You can. But I won't release it. Write a rap song about how awesome we are and our products or we'll kill you.
Zr'Ahgloth - LOSA
Meanwhile, back in the apparment...
Apollo - What have they gotten up to?
He walked towards the bar and hears some whispering on his way.
Apollo - Huh?
"Dude why didn't you kill em?"
Apollo listened out clearer.
"You should know you don't fight Loron like that! Even their neck skin is tough! Damnit, we lost 3 of our best now, as well as a hell of a lot of cash!"
Apollo approached the source of the sound, hidden.
"What do you mean they've gone to Zaarkhun's advertising room? Follow them in!"
Apollo - *to himself* Looks like they got in trouble...
Apollo ran into the room and gots in.
Anouncer - Ah! You're just in time! Smile!
Apollo was drugged, making him smile, and a picture was taken. He was then knocked out.
Zr'Ahgloth - DAT SUKS MAN YOO SHOUDL HAV STAYED AT DA APPARTMENT
Zr'Ahgloth was drugged to sleep too.
Zr'Ahgloth - huuur gimme...sum pizza...
He fell to the floor and slept.
The Next MorningEdit
Apollo - All right guys, we're up for another fight!
Zr'Ahgloth - HUR I WANNA SMASH DIS PLACE DEY DRUGGED US LAST NIGHT
Kralgon Emperor - Drugged us last night? What are you talking about?
Zr'Ahgloth - BLUD R U DUM?
Kralgon Emperor - You must have had a weird dream. Oh looky, the show's on again.
Zr'Ahgloth - hur I dunt like dis
harris and Harriet appeared on the screen.
Harris - You are now watching Zaarkhun News! Our top story tonight, we ahve an interview with Team URC themselves!
Zr'Ahgloth - OI DATS DA PART WHERE DEY DRUG US
Apollo - Let's just watch...
Harriet - So, Apollo, how do you feel about this place?
Apollo on TV - It's like Heaven! Here I can smash all the people I want and I don't have to lie about it the next day!
Zr'Ahgloth gave his 'I told you so' look.
Zr'Ahgloth - SEE?
Harris - I bet you love imagining all these people as just puny little Asgord, don't you?
Apollo - Yep! I slaughtered them at home, here I do it on live TV!
An Asgord is brought into the room, and Apollo stabbed it.
Zr'Ahgloth - HOW CAN YOO NOT REMEMBA DIS
Kralgon Emperor - It seems they've had their hands on our System technology...
Harris - So then, Tuolog, what do you do on the station? Tuolog on tv - Nothing much. I just give people bad looks and beat them up if they give me one back. I love drinking all the illegal drinks if I can get them from anywhere. Oh, and I tkae drugs which boost my performance. How else do you think we won?
Zr'Ahgloth - SEE MAN IM RITE DIS TIME
Tuolog - You are right...
Harriet - And of course, big man Zr'Ahgloth! What's your secret to winning?
Zr'Ahgltoh on TV - TUOLOG GIVS ME DA DRUGS MAN DATS DA ONLY REESON WE IS WINNIN COS WE DRINK DA RITE STUFF AN EET DA RITE STUFF YEH WE BOUGHT IT FROM LOKTIAN FOOD.COM
Zr'Ahgloth - WAT DA HELL
Krlgon Emperor - They're using us to sell their products!
Apollo - This is unacceptable!
Kralgon Emperor - It's clever though. They make us look badder and advertise their own product. For free.
Harris - And Kralgon Emperor! What do you have to share?
Kralgon Emperor on tv - Nothing. I just destroy people like I destroy my friends at home... Kralgon Emperor - Why am I wearing that shirt? Of course, more free advertising...
Zr'Ahgloth - DATS A DUM SHIRT AN DATS A DUM AD IMMA SHANK DESE PEEPZ Tuolog - I not watch any more of this.
The TV was turned off, but switched itself back on again to a new screen.
Henrik Zaarkhun - Well, hello guys.
Zr'Ahgloth - WAT DA HELL
Henrik Zaarkhun - Yeah, it's me.
There was an awkward silence.
Tuolog - What you want?
Henrik Zaarkhun - You're making us millions, y'know.
Kralgon Emperor - We'll see how much money survives when we blast you, like we did to your brother.
Henrik Zaarkhun - You actually bought that cheesy story? Hahahahha, I thought you were cleverer than that.
Zr'Ahgloth - WAT YOO ON BOUT
Henrik Zaarkhun - Oh nothing... Anyway, toda's theme is all about robots. You up for it? Kralgon Emperor - I'll go, instead of Zr'Ahgloth.
Zr'Ahgloth - WAT DA HELL MAN I WANNA KILL GEEKZ TOO
Henrk Zaarkhun - You wn't be killing hem, you'll be driving them.
Zr'Ahgloth - wat? meh dats borin Kralgon Emperor - So I'll go. Right, we're off!
The Kralgon Emperor and Tuolog arrived on the arena.
Tuolog - We ride on robots now, right?
Kralgon Emperor - Yep.
Anouncer - LADIES AND GENTLEMEN!! TEAM URC!!
The crowd roared.
"TEAM URC! TEAM URC! TEAM URC!"
Anouncer - Our boys here will have to control giant death robots to fight other giant death robots, including the last boss. Now, BEGIN!
The Kralgon Emperor looked at the robots. They were armed with electric weapons, death lasers, missiles and heavy machine guns.
Kralgon Emperor - Hmm, this shouldn't be hard.
Tuolog - I control Tralkik before, this easy.
Tuolog began his normal essence chanting.
Kralgon Emperor - So, I get in this large robot, you remotely control that one?
Tuolog - Sounds like plan.
The Kralgon Emperor got in his robot, while Tuolog hopped in with the Emperor, remotely controlling his own.
Anouncer - Wow, that robot wasn't meant to be controlled by contestants!
But back in the crowd, someone had noticed who was going up for the team...
Roshisiz - ...My son?
Tuolog - I feel presence again.
Kralgon Emperor - We need to focus on this.
Several capsules appeared, full of warriors from an unknown race.
Anouncer - The Katorians, people! A barbaric race still in the Tribal Stage, at a large amount they can cause damage. Reminds me of that contestant, Zr'Ahgloth, which is why I chose them. Shame good ol' Zr'Ahgy won't be here.
Zr'Ahgloth - *on radio* WAT DA HELL
Tuolog - Let us begin.
The Katorians charged at the giant robots, who kicked and crushed them.
Anouncer - Gory! Of course, at this stage, they don't even need to use the robot's weapons to kill their foes.
Kralgon Emperor - It's better to spare ammunition on greater threats than this.
Tuolog - Agreed.
After a while, the Katorians were dead.
Anouncer - Clearly, that was no challenge for 2 death bots. Now, what next?
Giant Tyranites walked onto the arena from the capsules.
Kralgon Emperor - Are these what I think they are?
Tuolog - Tyranites... Zr'Ahgloth - WHERE DID DESE GUYS GET DEM FROM Kralgon Emperor - From Zaarkhun you moron!
Zr'Ahgloth - OH YEH HE MADE DEM I FORGOT
Tuolog - We found bigger threat very fast.
The Tyranites roared and gave the robots a threatening stare.
Kralgon Emperor - Eliminate these things!
The robots fired their machine guns at the Tyranites. They were firing large bullets incredibly fast. Two of the large Tyranites went down, but 5 more were still around, and 2 reached them.
Anouncer - Robot wrestling!
Kralgon Emperor - Get away from me!
His robot throws a Tyranite on the ground and started to crush its head. Tuolog's robot punches the second Tyranite repeatedly. The last Tyranite shot poisonous shards at the robots, one of which penetrate's Tuolog's. But Tuolog wasn't inside it, so no poison hit anyone. He fired missiles at the final Tyranites.
Anouncer - And... they've killed the Tyranites!
Back in the crowd...
Roshisiz - Well Zaarkhun, you helped me out by testing these Tyranites here. I know their weaknesses now.
On the arena, Tuolog and the Kralgon Emperor were celebrating their moment.
Tuolog - That not so hard.
Kralgon Emperor - Indeed. Still, this just worries me more.
Tuolog - Why?
Kralgon Emperor - It means they have worst things to use against us.
Anouncer - Now then... massive Tralkik tanks! Sentient tanks might prove a problem for our guys...
Kralgon Emperor - Tanks? Let's prepare the missiles for these ones.
The tanks' fire destroyed Tuolog's robot.
Tuolog - Uh oh.
Kralgon Emperor - Damnit!
The Emperor fired all his missiles at the tanks, pressing buttons as quickly as possible until his missile ammunition ran out. Most were destroyed, but one.
Anouncer - A lucky move. But what happens next? Tune in after the short commercial!
Everything turned off for a second, and the crowd went out to eat for 15 minutes.
Kralgon Emperor - Hmpf.
Back in the appartment...
Zr'Ahgloth - WAT MAN I WANNA SEE DA PART WEN DEY GET BLOWN UP BY DA TANK
Apollo - Whose side are you on?!
Zr'Ahgloth - SHUT UP MAN IT WUD BE FUNNY
On the arena, Tuolog had noticed one person left behind.
Tuolog - Wait- I see one person in crowd.
The unknown figure walked down, clapping them. They could only make out that he was a Kralgon.
Kralgon Emperor - Who is that?
Roshisiz - Son, long time no see!
Kralgon Emperor - Hmpf. You. Give me a reson to not crush you with this robot right now.
Roshisiz - The fact that it's deactivated?
Kralgon Emperor - It won't be in some minutes...
Someone else walked down.
Henrik Zaarkhun - Not how I pictured a family reunion...
Tuolog prepared a Gyronic blast.
Tuolog - You Zargoth's pawn. You brough Kolossus back. Caused us enough problem.
Henrik Zaarkhun - Now now, you must know that violence is useless.
Tuolog - You caused violence to us long enough.
Henrik Zaarkhun - Me? Hahahhaha...
Roshisiz - You're really buying into this, aren't you?
Tuolog - You cause my death once. Now you know how it feels like.
Tuolog fired the blast at Roshisiz. He was electricuted, and his blast hit a shield.
Roshisiz - Of course they need a forcefield around here, after Dudecrusha killed so many people...
Henrik Zaarkhun - You really believe I'm Falrik's brother?
Kralgon Emperor - Who are you then?
Henrik Zaarkhun - You already know me. I'm two people you hate, in one body.
Roshisiz - My genetic experiments and hours of biology put both the Nex Prophet and Nexatru in one body!
Henrik Zaarkhun - We used Zaarkhun's body, and we've posed as a front of the Zaarkhun Consoritum. That way, soon as the worse comes to the worst and we are spotted for our ilegal activity, we have someone to blame.
Roshisiz - It is nothing short of pure genious!
Kralgon Emperor - Why go through all this? Seems like a waste of time to me.
Henrik Zaarkhun - A waste of time? It earns cash, fool.
Roshisiz - We've told you too much of our plans. And besides, the crowd are about to come back in a minute...
Tuolog - Money irrelevant for your superiors. You lie.
Henrik Zaarkhun - As Roshisiz put it, I'm not telling anything else. Oh and, you realise your robot's about to get blown up soon as the game turns back online
Kralgon Emperor - We'll see about that.
Computer - Game beginning in 60 seconds.
Henrik Zaarkhun - I'll be seeing you... assuming that robot doesn't blow you to smithereens!
Kralgon Emperor - Let's see who will be blown up when this ends.
He and Tuolog got back to their robot.
Anouncer - 'Ladies and gentlemen!! The game begins again!
The Tralkik tanks charged blast, but now Tuolog didn't have a robot to control. He stopped it with his Essence powers, and crushed it.
Tuolog - I have plan.
He took control of the tank, which he repaired using Gyronic time reversal, and controlled with Psionic.
Anouncer - Interesting strategy going on here. But now it's time for the final boss!
Tuolog - Now I have new robot to control!
Kralgon Emperor - Let's see what's coming for us now...
Clanking of metal can be heard.
Kralgon Emperor - Looks like the enemy is a robot.
A huge swarm of robotic spiders came out.
Anouncer - Is it... Arachnobot?
In the appartment...
Zr'Ahgloth - *watching* OI DEYZ FIGHTIN DA CHIKZ MAN DATS GONNA BE FUNNY
Apollo - This isn't your 'chikz' idiot!
Back on the arena:
Kralgon Emperor - So, we are fighting a swarm of spiders? This is gonna be easy.
The Emperor prepared his death ray, then a huge, giant, robotic spider comes out, and made a metallic roar.
Anouncer - Arachnobot! A long-time Boss, Arachnobot is everyone's favourite robotic spider and well kknown for taking out big things. Oooh, looks like our team is in for a challenge!
Kralgon Emperor - I'll take on Arachnobot, use the tank to destroy the smaller spiders.
Tuolog - Understood.
They attacked. Arachnobot climbed on the ceiling and fires a laser at the Kralgon Emperor, which nearly hits his cockpit.
Kralgon Emperor - Argh damnit!
He fired his death rays and missiles at Arachnobot. Arachnobot quickly dodged by moving around.
Zr'Ahgloth - WAT DA HELL MAN I HAS TA LOOK UP DIS BOTS WEAKNESS
Tuolog used the tank to run over the smaller spiders while firing at Arachnobot's direction.
Tuolog - Let's try to fire where it will go and not where it is.
Kralgon Emperor - Good idea.
He fired his missiles again, and Arachnobot created more smaller spiders and dropped mines down. It continued to avoid them.
Zr'Ahgloth - OI MAN ITS TOO FAST YA LOSA
Tuolog - I have idea again.
Tuolog tried to take control of Arachnobot, which laughed it off and went unnaffected.
Tuolog - Didn't work...
Anouncer - Was that a metallic laugh? What are Team URC doing?
Zr'Ahgloth - OI YA DUMBOS YA GOTTA ELECTRICUTE DA WALL YEH DEN IT CANT CLIMB
Kralgon Emperor - That...actually sounds good.
The Emperor's robot fired electric shots at the wall. Arachnobot fellsdown and crashed on the floor, but then got up. Tuolog's tank ran around, distracting Arachnobot, while the Emperor used up one last electric shot, disabling Arachnobot. A shot from Tuolog's tank destroyed it.
Anouncer - Team URC wins yet again!
The crowd cheered. Back in the appartment:
Zr'Ahgloth - hur hur hur I is da smartest
Apollo - You looked that up on the internet. Really smart, Zr'Ahgloth...
Zr'Ahgloth - SHUT UP MAN DUNT TELL DEM DAT
Seearching for daddyEdit
Kralgon Emperor - Tell us what?
Zr'Ahgloth - uhh how I wanted ta be dere beatin dat big chik instead man
Tuolog - Don't be sidetracked. We need to find Roshisiz. Zr'Ahgloth - KRALGON EMPERORS DAD IS HERE?
Kralgon Emperor - Yes. We better head off!
Apollo - Let's see if someone at the bar knows where he is.
Zr'Ahgloth - hur dey betta not drug us agen
They all walked into the bar.
Bouncer - Oh, you again. Get in.
Zr'Ahgloth - HUR YEH WE WILL GET IN
They went around asking people, but then Zr'Ahgloth went telling boastful stories instead.
Zr'Ahgloth - ...AN I SAID MAN I SHOULD BE DERE I LIV WIF DESE CHIKZ ALL DA TIME I KNOW HOW TO BEAT DEM PROPA
The same thugs, each of a different species, were back.
Thug - Y'know, I still haven't forgotten the time when you beat us up.
Zr'Ahgloth - hur hur yeh I rememba dat AN I WILL DO IT AGEN IF YOO PROVOKE ME
Thug 2 - You're lucky the medics here are excellent, or my broken bones wouldn't be repaired. We could barely afford it...
Thug 3 - I know where your Roshisiz guy is.
Thug - But if you want to know, you'll have to do a little something for us first.
Zr'Ahgloth - NEXT TIME DERE WONT BE BONES TA FIX...
Zr'Ahgloh paused a second.
Zr'Ahgloth - oi wats dat bout roshisiz?
Thug 2 - So we can lead you right to him, if you do this little job which should be no match for your 'badmanness'. Interested?
Zr'Ahgloth - hur hur hur imma impress da kralgon empra an tuolog RITE WAT DO I HAV TA DO
Thug 3 - There's a rival of ours. He ran off with our boss' girlfriend. That, and he's rich. Like our boss, he's a Basileus.
Thug - Rob him, and his girl. And make sure you break more of his bones than you did of ours. Kill him if you like; there's no laws round here.
Thug 2 - Think you got what it takes?
Zr'Ahgloth - I IS DA BEST LORON DERE IS MAN DATS EASY AS EETIN PIZZA
Thug 3 - That's what I thought. He should be over in Heaven.
Zr'Ahgloth was confused.
Zr'Ahgloth - wat? heaven?
Thug - Yeah. The big bar round here. You know? The one that's got all the best music, the dancers, the best drinks?
Thug 2 - We stopped going there cos of him.
Zr'Ahgloth - SURE I KNOW MAN I WUS TESTIN YOO
Thug 3 - I sincerely doubt that. Get the job down, bring my back his phone, his girl, and his cash. I'll show you were Roshisiz lives. And his name is Don. Yeah, he did make the name up himself. His girlfriend's call Thinia. We dunno if that's a Basileus name or not.
Zr'Ahgloth - SIK
The Kralgon Emperor, Apollo and Tuolog had been watching all of this.
Kralgon Emperor - What do you have to report?
Zr'Ahgloth - eehhh nuffin man I wus just dere tellin sum of ma stories now I need ta go outside I wanna errrmm SEE DA STARTS YEH MAN SEE DA STARS Kralgon Emperor - Tell us, it's important. And I wanna hear it from Zr'Ahgloth.

He pointed at the thugs.

Zr'Ahgloth - YEH MAN IMMA GO AFTA DA GUY NOW
Apollo - Where is he?
Zr'Ahgloth - sum bar called heaven i know dats a lame name but meh
They headed off to Heaven.
Kralgon Emperor - 'That guy dancing over there looks like Don.
Zr'Ahgloth - HUR HUR IMMA RIP HIS HED OFF
They walked up to him.
Zr'Ahgloth - OI YOO
Don - What?
Zr'Ahgloth - YA MOMS DUM GIMME YA MONEY AN YA CHIK
He pointed his pistol at his neck, and shoved him to the wall. The bar wemt silent, the dancers quit dancing and several people join the guy.
Don - Bad idea, punk.
Zr'Ahgloth - YOO CALLED ME WAT YA LOSA
He shot his neck, but the shot failed to do anything.
Don - Try shooting me, it don't hurt. I'm bulletproof!
Kralgon Emperor - Gah, bullet proof armour.
Zr'Ahgloth - HUR DATS NUFFIN
Zr'Ahgloth grabbed him.
Zr'Ahgloth - IMMA ETT YAS INSTEAD DEN
While this was going on, Tuolog and the Kralgon Emperor talked to Thinia, who was also a Basileus. Apollo simply sat and watched everything, he wasn't used to the underworld.
Thinia - What are you doing here?
Kralgon Emperor - We are doing a job. And we need you to come with us.
Thinia - Damnit, I don't know how I got into this mess.
Kralgon Emperor - Cooperate and you shall not be harmed. Your boyfriend, however...well, not much will remain from him.
Thinia simply cried.
Kralgon Emperor - Ugh, Tuolog do something or else we may have to kill her.
Tuolog - I feel bad for this.
Tuolog did his Essence chanting, and she fell asleep. However, he was also doing something else with her mind...
Thinia - Huh? What's this?
She found herself in the arena, and heard big footsteps approaching.
Thinia - Hello?
The noise got quieter, and her boyfriend, Don, entered the arena.
Don - Heya!
Thinia - I'm scared.
Don - Scared of what? Everything is fine here!
A tentacle came out of Don's back, and Don gave a weird grin. Thinia screamed and ran off to the end, then saw the lava. She turned back to her boyfriend.
Guy - Oh come on, what's the problem?;;
His Basilieus body became red and blue, and more tentacles started to appear.
Thinia - What the hell are you doing? What happened to you?
Don looked at his back.
Don - Oh? You mean these?
He began to get bigger.
Don - This the usual.
His body exploded in fire, becoming...
"Wait, I know who I use. I saw him. Lord of Nightmares himself..."
He became Shu'rimrodir.
Thinia - Oh my gosh...
Shu'rimrodir - Don't be scared? Why don't you come here and give me a kiss?
The lava started to get nearer, and she screamed.
Shu'rimrodir - Bahahaha! I'm so happy you chose me other your previous boyfriend. I'm much better than him anyway.
She feels nervous. A crowd gathered.
Shu'rimrodir - They all agree with me, you see!
She looked at them, and tears formed in her eyes.
Shu'rimrodir - Now, let's GRAAAAGHHH!!
A blade hit him from behind, and the crowd vanished.
Thinia - ...?
Shu fells dead, and her old boyfriend is there. The Thug Boss.
Thug Boss - This is the last thing I'll do for you.
Girlfriend - What is it?! Help me, I'm scared...
The lava lowers, Shu's body and the rest of the crowd disappeared, and the Thug Boss came closer. Thinia curled up to herself, not sure whether to get away from him or to get nearer. He got very close to her, and hugged her. She embraced him, and a tear formed in her eye. She smiled.
"Aww, this cute."
"Hurry up, willya?"
"PUT ME IN DA DREEM MAN I WANNA BEET DEM BOF UP"
"No. She had enough."
Thinia woke up.
Tuolog - You now know not cheat on people again, ok?
Thinia - Of course not.
Kralgon Emperor - Did you got the guy's phone and cash, Zr'Ahgloth?
Zr'Ahgloth - YEH I GOT IT MAN DIS STUFF IS SIK CAN I KEEP IT
Apollo - You can buy your own, idiot!
Zr'Ahgloth gave them to the Emperor, who turned to the Thug boss ad gave them.
Kralgon Emperor - Our friend here's sorted it out; I doubt she'll ever leave you for someone else again.
Thug Boss - Good. I'll place a bet for you winning in tomorrow's game, betting all the money we got left. Don't let me down.
Tuolog - *to himself* Maybe I can mess with Zr'Ahgloth's dream. This funner than controlling Tralkik.
Before Zr'Ahgloth had a chance to yell at Tuolog, the Thug stepped in.
Thug - Roshisiz is right this way.
Zr'Ahgloth - DATS SIK NOW WE KNOW WHERE DAT LOSA IS
They led him to Roshisiz' appartment, and entered through the window. The appartment was huge, and was obviously for VIPs.
Roshisiz - And what are you doing here?
Zr'Ahgloth - HUR HUR LEMME EET HIM HE LOOKS TASTY
Zr'Ahgloth was electricuted.
Zr'Ahgloth - AW MAN
Roshisiz - Heh, I have control over your deadlocked collars too. I ssume you're here to work out what we're planning, blah, blah, blah.
Zr'Ahgloth - START TALKIN LOSA
Roshisiz - Well, I'll be honest. You're here so we can use the media against you.
Tuolog - Speak.
Roshisiz - So not only are you here so we can use media as a weapon, but we can kill you.
Kralgon Emperor - Yes, that's marvelous news. "Roshisiz kills Team URC, everyone's most favorite". Way to create a reputation.
Roshisiz - But you see, everyone thinks we've "exposed your true nature". Not only does that help with the Confederacy's influence growing, and GTFO's, but means we can kill you and be treated as heroes.
Kralgon Emperor - And get the Republic, UNO, and all of ours allies against you.
Roshisiz - But you realise of course that your deaths will be an accident...
They were all growing impacient, only Zr'Ahgloth spoke this for them.
Zr'Ahgloth - ARGH MAN I DUNT CARE JUST START TALKIN ALREADY
Roshisiz - All right, this station is a subspace compression wave. It'll be put to the centre of Cyrannus, blow up, destroying the core worlds, and most of the Inner Rim. It'll be detonated as a suicide act from Apollo, who did so while on a drugs high. And UNOL's greatest will be aboard.
Kralgon Emperor - Have you ever heard of the Thirteenth Tribe? They would never allow this to happen. Also, drugs high? No one will fall to that.
Roshisiz - Well, I'd like to ask if you've ever heard of Apocalypta? They're the ones who turned this entire station into a big weapon.
Kralgon Emperor - Uh...You got me there.
Zr'Ahgloth - YOR DUM MAN WHEN IM FREE IMMA KILL YAS
Roshisiz - You won't be free though...muhahahaha!
Zr'Ahgloth - HUR YOR CHEESY LAFFIN DUNT INTIMIDATE ME YOR A LOSA
Roshisiz - Well, I'll be off soon. Don't tell Henrk Zaarkhun I told you this, will ya son?
Kralgon Emperor - Hmpf.
Zr'Ahgloth - HUR YEH WE WONT CUS HE WILL B DED
Roshisiz - Good luck with that. And I don't know what to call him. Prophet Nexatru? Anyway, I'll get going.
Zr'Ahgloth - YEH RUN AWAY
Zr'Ahgloth and Tuolog entered the arena.
Anouncer - LADIES AND GENTLEMEN!! TEAM URC!!
The crowd greeted them with applause.
Anouncer - But today, there will be nothing in the arena.
Zr'Ahgloth - WAT DA HELL
Anouncer - No, instead it'll happen onj Planet Ellinintine!
The duo wer teleported onto the world, right next to a large Desert Buggy, which was armed with missiles and a machine gun.
Anouncer - They must hunt down 15 Griok Piggies, an endangered race which are incredibly valuable, make fine meals, and make valuable trophies.
Tuolog - Illegal hunting for money? You people make me more sick every day.
The duo set off to look for them. Tuolog's senses allowed him to discover Griok Piggy tracks. After a few minutes, however, they'd only killed 3.
Zr'Ahgloth - IM BORED MAN CAN I EET DA PGGYS
Tuolog - No idiot. Wait- there some close.
They discovered a den of 5 piggies.
Zr'Ahgloth - IMMA SHOOT DEM
Zr'Ahgloth fired the buggy's machine gun, killing them. There was a huge roar from a beast nearby.
Zr'Ahgloth - WAT WAS DAT
Tuolog - We disturb wildlife.
Tuolog loaded them into the buggy.
They kept going, and found 2 more, which they killed and collected. However, the roar came louder.
Zr'Ahgloth - WAT MAN BRING IT
Tuolog - They can't hear you or speak your language...
And the two came across 3 more, which they killed and collected. But this time, the roar that came was followed by load footsteps of approaching creatures. As soon as they collected the Piggy's corpses, they looked around and saw 3 creatures of the same species as Dudecrusha.
Zr'Ahgloth - OI ITS DUDECRUSHA... WAIT 3 DUDECRUSHAS
Tolog - STEP ON IT!
Zr'Ahgloth stepped on the accelerator, but the beasts came charging after him. Zr'Ahgloht drove, while Tuolog was in the back, with the cargo and equipment. Tuolog tossed down a mine, kiling one of 3 in an explosion, while the other 2 dodged.
Tuolog - Zr'Ahgloth, shoot tree ahead!
Zr'Ahgloth shot it. The tree fell down, but the buggy drove straight past. It landed, however, on one of the creature's heads. The final creature continued to chase them.
Tuolog - How do we kill this one?
Zr'Ahgloth - OI WE STILL GOT MISSILES
Tuolog nodded, and got in the turret. He turned his gun on the final creature, killing it with missiles, while barely hanging on. The buggy breaked when it was dead, and Tuolog let go and flew into a tree, where he slammed his head and fell down to join Zr'Ahgloth.
Zr'Ahgloth - OI MAN WE RAN OVA SOM PIGGYS PUT DEM IN DA CARGO
Tuolog nodded, and did so. They turned on the communicator, hoping to speak to the Anouncer, but instead 'Henrik Zaarkhun' came on screen.
Henrik - Have you collected them?
Zr'Ahgloth - YEH MAN SHUT UP
Henrik - Good.
The buggy was teleported away, but they weren't.
Zr'Ahgloth - OI MAN YA FORGOT US
Henrik - Oh did I? Well that's too bad.
Tuolog - What going on?
Henrik - You see, you died in that explosion your mine caused, and now you've lost this game.
Zr'Ahgloth - AR YOO DUM IM TALKIN TOO YA RITE NOW
Tuolog - Why?
Henrik - You know why I kept you... Everyone voted for you losing, and when you won, we took all their money...
Tuolog - So now they bet we win and you get rid of us.
Henrik - That's right. Have a good time in the jungle full of bloodthirsty endangered creatres!!
Zr'Ahgloth - HUR MY HOMEWORLD WAS WORS DAN DIS wat was its name agen
The two wandered around, then recieved a transmission.
Kralgon Emperor - Zr'Ahgloth? Tuolog? DO YOU READ?
Zr'Ahgloth - SHUT UP MAN I DO
Kralgon Emperor - Good. A ship's coming down to pick you up. It'll be about 5 minutes.
Tuolog - Hehe, I cannot wait to see look on Henrik's face.
Tehy wandered for a minute, but then heard rattling in the trees.
Tuolog - Someone there. It a Loron.
Zr'Ahgloth - SIK NOW I GOT SOMONE TA BOSS AROUND

Zr'Ahgloth - TALKINS BORIN MAN LETS FITE
Jol'kiar rolled up his sleeves. He was very old fashioned about how he fights, but knew all the best tactics. Zr'Ahgloth would find Jol'kiar more of a challenge than he knew...
Jol'kiar - DEN BRING IT
Jol'kiar jumped and kicked Zr'Ahgloth several times. Zr'Ahgloth fell back a bit, before charging up to Jol'kiar and punching him in the face. Jol'kiar grabbed Zr'Ahgloth's arm and threw him against the ground.
Jol'kiar - HUR YOO FITE LIKE A CHIK
Zr'Ahgloth - YA MOM
Zr'Ahgloth got up, jumped back and dived in the water.
Jol'kiar - WAT DA HELL YOR RUNNIN AWAY
Jol'kiar looks around, but then Zr'Ahgloth grabs his leg from underneath and pulled him in. Jol'kiar kicked Zr'Ahgloth in the face and started to claw him underwater. In retaliation, Zr'Ahgloth punched one of Jol'kiar's eyes.
Jol'kiar - AW MAN MA EYE
Jol'kiar jumped out of the water. Zr'Ahgloth pulled him back in, and got out himself. Zr'Ahgloth left Jol'kiar to the pirahnna like fish, before Jol'kiar managed to eat them all and climb out.
Jol'kiar - HUR HUR HUR YOR WIMPY TRYIN TA LET DA FISHES KILL ME
Zr'Ahgloth - SHUT UP MAN GETTIN DA FISH ENT WIMPY ITS JUS BATTLE TACTICS YA DUMBO
Jol'kiar - YOO KNOW NUFFIN BOUT TACTICS YOO IDIOT
Zr'Ahgloth grabbed Jol'kiar by the arms adn smashed him against a rock, then kicked him. Jol'kiar jumped over Zr'Ahgloth, then headbutted him into the same rock. Zr'Ahgltoh punched Jol'kiar's jaws. The two didn't notice as Tuolog began chanting...
Jol'kliar jumped back, then charged at Zr'Ahgloth and kicked him between the legs.
Zr'Ahgltoh - WAT DA HELL DAT ENT EVEN HURTIN
Jol'kiar - EH WAT WAT DA HELL
Jol'kiar turned around and noticed Tuolog.
Jol'kiar - OH I GET IT
Jol'kiar charges at Tuolog's direction. Tuolog turned into a rock, wich Jol'kiar tripped over and fell into the river full of pihranna-like fish again. Jol'kiar eats the finshes again, jumps out of the water and threw the 'Tuorock' at Zr'Ahgloth's head. The 'Tuorock' turned back into Tuolog, and Jol'kiar was lifted 10 feet in the air.
Jol'kiar - OH WAT NOW
Zr'Ahgloth - OI TUOLOG I APPRECIATE DA HELP YEH BUT ITS JUST ME AN HIM DONT GET INVOLVED AT ALL
Tuolog - Aww. That boring.
Tuolog turned into a rock, which he'd stay as for the rest of the battle. Meanwhile, Zr'Ahgloth picked up a tree and smashed it on Jol'kiar's head. Jol'kiar grunted, picked the tree while Zr'Ahgloth was still holding, and swung it, throwing Zr'Ahgloth away.
Jol'kiar - YOO SUK MAN YOO NEED TA RELY ON YOR IKY LEETLE FRIENDZ TA FITE ME
Zr'Ahgloth fell into the river full of pihranna-like fish, and after struggling, ate them. He picked up three differetn trees, and chucked each one at Jol'kiar. Jol'kiar punched the trees in mid-air, destroying them with ease.
Jol'kiar - HUR HUR HUR FITE ME PROPA YOO LOSA
Jol'kiar couldn't see Zr'Ahgloth...
Jol'kiar - YEH RUN AWAY
"HUR DUDECRUSHA OH WAT DA-WAIT-WAT DA HELL-WOOOOOOO"
Zr'Ahgltoh came back, riding on a creature similar to the ones that had chased him.
Jol'kiar - WAT DA HELL AR YOO DOIN NOW YOR JUST BEIN STOOPID
The creature knocked Jol'kiar in the water.
Zr'Ahgloth - HUR I BET YOR SIK OF DEM FISHES NOW
Jol'kiar jumped out of the water and hit the creature with a uppercut in the jaw. Zr'Ahgloth, however, had alread jumped off, creeped around Jol'kiar, ad after Jol'kiar executed his uppercut attack in the jaw, strangld him from behind.
Jol'kiar - HUR YOR NOW FITIN LIKE A SNEAKA. GETIN MOR AND MOR WIMPY EH?
Zr'Ahgloth - hur i jus gettin started
Jol'kiar - FINE DEN LETS SEE WAT HAPPENS
Jol'kiar swung Zr'Ahgloth and threw him in the water again. Zr'Ahgloth, rather than being attacked by the fishes, simply swam around eating them. He got out of the water, punched Jol'kiar and tripped him up. Afterwards, he picked th creature up and smashed it on Jol'kiar, who was now weary.
Jol'kiar - HUR NOW YOR MAKIN ME MAD
Jol'kiar strafed, grabbed Zr'Ahgloth and started to bash his head against a wall repeatedly. Zr'Ahgloth elbowed Jol'kiar in the stomach, punched him and kicked him on the floor. While on the floor, Zr'Ahgloth slammed his foot on Jol'kiar's neck. Jol'kiar had little strength left.
Jol'kiar - HUR YOR JUST LUCKY *he jumped back* I DUNT FEEL LIKE WASTIN MOR OF MA TIME FITIN A UNLORONLY LIKE YOO. ALSO YA MOMS DUM.
Jol'kiar ran into the woods, disppearing.
Zr'Ahgloth - YA MOMS MOMS DUM
Tuolog transformed back into a non rock. The two heard...applause?
Zr'Ahgloth - oh ma days man dat guy was very tuff fer an old man...oi is dat an applause?
Tuolog - I hear too.
Several cameras appeared in view, and an applausing sound came out of them. A screen with the Anouncer came on.
Anouncer - Congratulations; you beat another boss!
Zr'Ahgloth - OH WAT DA HELL MA YOO HAD ANY IDEA HOW HARD WAS DAT IMMA EET YA MOMS MOMS MOMS MOM!!!!!!
Tuolog - Huh, it interesting plan...
Anouncer - Team URC has survived being stranded out on an alien world and fighting one of their old enemies guys!
There was an enormous cheer from the crowd, and the two were teleported back on the space station.
Tuolog - I really fall for that.
Zr'Ahgloth - IM ANGRY MAN I WANNA SMASH STOOF
Anouncer - I bet you're all confused... TEAM URC PASSES YET ANOTHER CHALLENGE!
The crowd roared and chanted their name.
Anouncer - And we have a guest here today.
Henrik Zaarkhun flew over in a hovering chair, sitting next to the anouncer. The crowd cheered him on and he waved at them.
Zr'Ahgloth - im too tired ta care man
Henrik Zaarkhun - Well down Team URC. I think I must give you credit; you've got much futher than anyone expected. ARE YOU ALL BETTING THEY WIN?!
The crowd roared in response.
Tuolog - I have to admit. He very intelligent.
Henrik Zaarkhun - Well then, tomorrow's your last game. After that, you'll be doing the ULTIMATE CHALLENGE!!!
Roar came from the crowd. The Kralgon Emperor whispered to them via the System's communicator.
Kralgon Emperor - We really need to talk.
Tuolog - What is it, Emperor?
Kralgon Emperor - After this, meet up back in the appartment.
The Plot ThickensEdit
They all returned to the appartment.
Tuolog - What happened?
Kralgon Emperor - Zaarkhun was lying when he said about the betting.
Tuolog - Really?
Kralgon Emperor - Yeah; by this point,the people who betted against you are all broke. They've hardly got any money to bet, so Zaarkhun's not losing much on the betting thing. He was just trying to make it more dramatic, for higher ratings.
Zr'Ahgloth - hur hes a dumbo
Apollo - He must be a very clever dumbo.
Kralgon Emperor - I'm really confused as to what's going to happen...
Tuolog - Planets destroyed, that what happen.
Kralgon Emperor - Planets being destroyed? Why?
Tuolog - You forget what Roshisiz said?
Kralgon Emperor - Who knows that Roshisiz was telling the truth?
Apollo - Some of our research into this history of this contest says that, in this competition, to test the mental strength as well as physical strength of the contestants, they sort of play with the minds of the contestants.
Tuolog - Oh by the way, if you see fight, you should also notice Rogue Loron are back.
Kralgon Emperor - Yeah, I've heard Zaarkhun had a deal with them.
Zr'Ahgloth - BAK TO DA RESEARCH FINGY BUT DAT WAS AWAY FROM DA FIGHTIN DOES IT STILL COUNT?
Kralgon Emperor - Of course it does, they even do it away from the fighting on purpose so it seems less of just a mind trick. Zr'Ahgloth - MAN DIS PLACES SOOOOOOOO DUM WHEN WE GET OFF I WANNA BLOW IT UP WIV A BIG BOOM Kralgon Emperor - If we get off this place, that is...
Tuolog - Go to bar.
Zr'Ahgloth - yeh I still wanna get dat old loron boy off ma hed
They walked into the bar as usual, but no one was inside.
Zr'Ahgloth - well dats even mor borin
Anouncer - Oh hey, you're here!
Tuolog - Ugh, him again.
Anouncer - You probably got a LOT of questions, don't ya?
Zr'Ahgloth - OI I JUS REMEMBERED DAT TIME WHEN YOO DRUGGED US WAT DA HELL WAS DAT
Anouncer - Drugged you? Hey, I was just filming you all, getting you famous! Getting you popular!
Tuolog - With lies.
Anouncer - And? So what if I did exaggerate the truth a bit? Building up your image! I mean c'mon Zr'Ahgloth you had the best sngle ever thanks to us!
Zr'Ahgloth - SHUT DA HELL UP DAT SUKED LOADS MA MOOSIC IS FAR FAR BETTA DAN DAT
Anouncer - The charts say otherwise, so do the critics.
Zr'Ahgloth - I BET NONE OF DOSE WERE LORONZ AN WATS WIV DA ROGUE LORON I HAD DA FITE?
Anonuncer - 'Yeah, we've had a deal wtih Da Rogue Boyz, so we got to clone Jol'kiar.
Zr'Ahgloth - I FOUGHT A FAKE ONE? OH MA DAYS IM FED UP
The anouncer sighed.
Anouncer - C'mon guys! I'm helping you!
Tuolog - 'You want to help? Set us free.
Anouncer - No, no, no no no no no. I can't do THAT...
Zr'Ahgloth - GO TA HELL DEN
The Kralgon Emperor slapped the anouncer.
Kralgon Emperor - Drop the act. Get a hold of yourself.
Anouncer - What act?
Tuolog - I know what act.
The anouncer was lifted 10 feet in the air.
Anouncer - W-what's going on?! I'll electrocult all of you!
Tuolog - You not do that. You start talking.
Zr'Ahgloth - WATS GOIN ON MAN IM CONFUSED
Kralgon Emperor - You know what's going on? The anouncer isn't who he pretends to be...
Anouncer - Huh? What do you mean?
Tuolog - You no anouncer. You a slave. You Zaarkhun's slave, you not want to work here... you just have no choice.
The Anouncer dropped to the floor.
Anouncer - Ok... yes.
Zr'Ahgloth - HUR IM NOT SOOPRISED
Anouncer - But guys, you gotta get me outta here! I been scared since th first day.. you know how I joined here? I was just a tourist... then I got kidnapped. I aint no real comentator, anouncer or whatever my role is meant to be... it's all an act to keep me safe!
Tuolog - Why not ask our help before?
Anouncer - Because, aside from this time since you've managed to stop the signal, I'm being watched completely.
Henrik Zaarkhun walked him, with his eyes glowing purple.
Henrik - Wrong. I watched you that whole time. Please, carry on.
Tuolog - You monster.
Henrik - I'm a very rich monster.
Zr'Ahgloth - I GOT MOR BLING DAN YOO SHUT UP
The anouncer was electricuted, and incapacitated.
Henrik - Yeah all thanks to me. Night night, guys!
They were all drugged, and each fell asleep.
Zr'Ahgloth - awww maaaa....noot ageeen...*sleeps*
Next morning, they all woke up.
Kralgon Emperor - I smell something fishy...
Zr'Ahgloth - soz man it wus me
Kralgon Emperor - Yeah, those fish you ate yesterday STINK!
Tuolog did not look amused.
Tuolog - Be serious.
Kralgon Emperor - Ok, ok... something's up. Check the news?
Apollo - That would be the best idea.
The news turned on, to Zaarkhun games.
Harris - Wow. We have some MASSIVE stories for y'all.
Harriet - As usual, it's related to the Team URC.
Harris - It seems they've all been getting involved with the gang life on this ship. Zr'Ahgloth robbed one of our richest residents, Tuolog mentally tortured another, and of course the Kralgon Emperor was trading in drugs. Apollo's been having an affair, too; he's been caught this night with a Libertan girl.
Apollo - What? No I didn't!
Harriet - My... what will Giane think? Well, this is beng broadcasted all around the Gigaquadrant, so she'll find out.
Harris - She already has...
The screen showed Giane.
Giane - All I gotta say, Apollo, is... #*&@ YOU!
Harriet - How do you feel about being cheated on, Giane?
The Kralgon Emperor didn't look amused.
Kralgon Emperor - Fake.
Giane - Damn I feel... I feel...
Harris - We can all imagine. Anyway, by the sounds of things, no one's going to vote for Apollo in his next year of presidency...
Harriet - Meanwhile, Zr'Ahgloth was caught robbing one of the residents, and Tuolog torturing the other.
Tuolog - I don't want to remember that.
Tuolog left the room.
Zr'Ahgloth - hur hur dat time was sik
Apollo and the Emperor facepalmed.
Harris - Well, these bad boys are up for something big...
Suddenly, Tuolog and Zr'Ahgloth were teleported into the arena, recieving huge applause.
Zr'Ahgloth - WAT DA HELL
Henrik - Ladies and gentlemen!! Our old anouncer's currently in hopsital. Zr'Ahgloth's had a fight with him, and beaten him to near-death.
The crowd gaspd.
Zr'Ahgloth - SHUT UP MAN IT WAS YOO WHO DID DAT
Henrik - Ha! Trying to lie your wait out for this one, Zr'Ahgloth?
The crowd bood Zr'Ahgloth.
Zr'Ahgloth - YOR DA LYIN ONE YOR A LYIN CAT FOOLIN EVERYON IN DA NOOS COM FITE ME PROPA
The crowd went silent.
Henrik - Quit lying, dude. And get on with the challenge!
Zr'Ahgloth - YEH DATS RITE YOR AFRAID OF ME
They were warped onto a beach, of a water planet.
Tuolog - Don't waste time, Zr'Ahgloth. You won't be able to challenge him.
Zr'Ahgloth - I WANNA KILL DAT GUY MAN I HAVNET HATED SUMONE DIS MUCH SINCE DAT COPYCAT DUMBO
Henrik - Our villains here will dive down, and look for the rare treasure of a crashed starship underwater.
Zr'Ahgloth - YOR DA VILLAIN HEER GO TA HELL
Henrik - At the end, the superhero- the Boss- will face them to fight for the treasure. It all happens underwater, folks!
Zr'Ahgloth - STOP HIDIN BEHIND DESE BOSSES AN COME YOO FITE ME
Henrik - Now, begin!
Tuolog looked confused.
Tuolog - Huh. We have no clue what we looking for.
Zr'Ahgloth - GET EVERYTHING DAT LOOKS SHINY
Tuolog - ...No. Look for underwater sunken spaceship. You know what URC ships look like, don't you?
Zr'Ahgloth - do we kno if its an URC ship?
Tuolog - It most likely one.
Zr'Ahgloth - den lets go
The two got on their diving gear, and dived down, looking for a large spaceship.
Zr'Ahgloth - any site of it man?
Tuolog - No.
Zr'Ahgloth - HUR I SEE IT RITE DERE
Tuolog - That's just a coral reef, idiot!
Zr'Ahgloth - YA MOM
After ages of searching, Zr'Ahgloth got bored.
Zr'Ahgloth - hur dis mor borin than huntin piggies
Tuolog - Wait- I see something. You see it?
Zr'Ahgloth was glad to have something to do.
Zr'Ahgloth - yeh i fhink so
Tuolog - That URC ship for sure. Dive down, get inside.
Zr'Ahgloth - OK MAN
Zr'Ahgloth and Tuolog entered by the hangar. They get in, and climbed to the bridge, where the treasure would be. The opened a door, and water came rushing out.
Tuolog - I not like this.
Zr'Ahgloth - WAT MAN ITS JUST WATA NUFFIN TA WORRY BOUT
Tuolog - Not the water, idiot...
They reached the bridge after climbing, but then a cage fell on them.
Zr'Ahgloth - WOAH WAT DA HELL
Zr'Ahgloth grabbed the cage and tried to throw it away. The cage, however, had somehow stuck to the ground.
"Name's Bigg Hardman."
Zr'Ahgloth - WAT DA HELL WHOS DERE
Bigg Hardman stepped out of the darkness, and looked at them.
Tuolog - Who are you? Survivor from crash?
Bigg Hardman - This ship's been here for a whle, so no. I'm here to help you. Imma let you out of the cage, if you co-operate. Zr'Ahgloth - FINE MAN
The cage came off. They could see Bigg Hardman more clearly, and saw that he was an Inalton.
Zr'Ahgloth - EY HE LOOKS LIKE ONE OF YOGTAMS BOYZ
Tuolog - How did Inalton end up in Cyrannus, underwater in URC ship?
Bigg Hardman - Hush it. Continue this way.
They walked up stairs, and saw not only the treasure, but a way out.
Zr'Ahgloth - DATS SIK BUT WAT YOO DOIN HERE?
Bigg Hardman didhn't answer.
Bigg Hardman - Watch out- something's coming!
Zr'Ahgloth - HUR WAT NOW
Zr'Ahgloth and Tuolog prepared themselves. A huge submarine loaded right on their exit, blocking it. Something came out... a tiny bird.
Zr'Ahgloth - HUR HUR HUR HUR HUR
The bird turned into... an identical Tuolog.
Zr'Ahgloth - HUR HUR HUR...WAIT WAT
Tuolog - What is this?
The Tuolog clone turned into a Tralkik.
Tuolog - Tralkik!
Zr'Ahgloth - OH MA DAYS ITS DA GEEKZ
Zr'Ahgloth punched the Tralkik, smashing its head off.
Zr'Ahgloth - DED MAN
The submarine started moving...
Tuolog - That not the boss... the submarine is a Tralkik.
Zr'Ahgloth - DA ENTIRE SUBS A GEEK? DATS DUM MAN IMMA SHANK IT
Zr'Ahgltoh climbed on the submarine and started to claw at its head. Tuolog then took control of it.
Zr'Ahgloth - TAKE DAT GEEK
The controlled submarine Tralkik rode around, and then they saw something larger...
Tuolog - That the big submarine Tralkik... it huge.
Zr'Ahgloth - DATS A SUB TOO? OH MA DAYS SHOOT DAT SHOOT DAT
Tuolog lifted the room off the ship, and it rose overwater.
Zr'Ahgloth - OH MA DAYZ MAN DA HUGE TRALKIK SUB FINGYS RISIN TOO
The Tralkik got to the top of the water.
Zr'Ahgloth - OI DATS IT IMMA KILL DAT GIANT GEEK
Zr'Ahgloth jumped into the Tralkik submarine and started to smash it. The Tralkik kept shooting at Zr'Ahgloth, but with Tuolog's help remotely, Zr'Ahgloth dodged. When Zr'Ahgloth dodged, the shots hit the Tralkik.
Zr'Ahgloth - HUR HUR HUR YOO MISSED LOSA
Zr'Ahgloth jumped on the submarine repeatedly, trying to make a way to inside it. Tuolog telepathically told Zr'Ahgloth to stop; the bit he was clawing at self destructed. This meant the submarine was only half its original size. Zr'Ahgloth grabbed what appeared to be the head of the thing, and smashed it on the submarine, blowing it up completely.
Zr'Ahgloth - I WIN MAN I ALWAYS WIN
Tuolog - Check this out... Bigg Hardman left it.
The note read:
"It's Yogtam. Come to room 89 on the space station next time you get the chance!"
Zr'Ahgloth - YOGTAMS HERE? DATS SIK
They were teleported back on the space station.
Henrik - Well done, Team! They've got the treasures, and destroyed the king Tralkik.
The crowd cheered them massively, chanted teir name, as if their reputation hadn't changed at all.
Zr'Ahgloth - HUR I STILL WANNA FITE YOO
Where've You Been?Edit
They got back to the appartment.
Kralgon Emperor - You seem excited. What is it?
Tuolog - We need to go to room 89, fast!
Kralgon Emperor - Errm, ok...
The four ran off, using the maps to locate the room, and got the elevator down to room 89. They knocked on the door.
Tuolog - It us! Open door!
The door was opened, and they were greeted by Yogtam.
Yogtam - Inside. Now.
Valzo - Sit down here please.
Zr'Ahgloth - YOGTAM AND VALZO OH MA DAYS!!!
Zr'Ahgloth bear hugged both, much to everyone's surprise. Yogtam, however, wasn't impressed.
Yogtam - Get down.
Zr'Ahgloth - OK MAN I CANT BELEEV IT THO
They all sat down.
Yogtam - 'You got a lot of talking to do. What the hell's been going on?
Kralgon Emperor - This place is a gigantic trap! We have been forced to fight against our will (ignoring Zr'Ahgloth of course) while Roshisiz and Henrik Zaarkhun get money from lies they make up from us.
Valzo - Yeah about the lies, we need to extract each of your DNAs.
They did this, using a syringe to extract some.
Tuolog - Why?
Yogtam - You know them lies? It seems they've all been delivering some drug, or Psionic Essence or whatever, which has been persuading EVERYONE that them lies are 100% true. The entire Republic hates Apollo, and a few planets even turned to the CAS because of it. And in UNO, even the System hasn't been able to control the uproar... in fact we're the only 2 who don't believe the lies.
Valzo - I knew you shouldn't have trusted Nexatru's Death Will... Which reminds me.
Valzo injected them with the antidote to the poison.
Zr'Ahgloth - HUR I FIND MOR REESUNS TA BLOW DIS PLACE UP
Yogtam - With your DNA, we can find your exact memory, and thus can prove it's not true. Sadly we can't us th System to do this, we're not sure why. We have the Salsetthe to thank for me & Valzo not believing, by the way. As I said they're using some sort of drug, as well as Psionic, yes? Wel you know, the Salsetthe repel Essence and they don't accept anything drug-related. So when they checked up on us after the move to Borealis, they just said "You might not want to believe the lies," told us how everything's fake and all that, so we rushed off here to help you out.
Valzo - Damn them for stealing Tuolog... If he weren't gone, we'd have been able to see through it anyway. The Ioketa have had a sort of... disorder without Tuolog fro some reason. They're all hibernating.
Tuolog - Slackers.
Zr'Ahgloth - BY DA WAY MAN
Zr'Ahgloth pointed at the deadlocked collar that electricutes them.
Zr'Ahgloth - CAN YOO GET DIS OFF US?
Yogtam - No we can't. But guys, you gotta get off this station. I can't help you on how, you just have to. And we must be off too, before we get caught. But one last thing.
Valzo - You should head down to the bottom floor, in the containment cell chambers.
Yogtam - You'll see when you get there... He's in cell 9D.
Kralgon Emperor - 9D, got it.
- The group headed off to cell 9D. On the way, they stopped to hear the news playing in the station's city complex.
Henrik - Well hello there, I'm taking over from Harris and Harriet as your news man, as they're in trouble for letting in 2 imposters in this station... Anyway, we've reports that two of UNO's other leaders, Valzo and Yogtam, were caught dealing in illegal drugs.
Tuolog - We have no time for lies!
Kralgon Emperor - Indeed, we must move on.
They took the elevator down to the containment area, and heard whispers coming from Cell 9D...
Zr'Ahgloth - I HEAR SUMFIN
It was the largest of the cells, and seemed to contain 4 people.
The team gets closer to see who is there.
"Open this door, willya? The code is 8769."
Kralgon Emperor - Right.
He inserted the code. The anouncer stepped out, and they could see Harris and Harriet.
Anouncer - Guys! What took ya so long?
The anouncer had a black eye and was bruised badly, as well as electricuted.
Kralgon Emperor - Nevermind that, we need to get out of here.
Anouncer - Yeah, I mean look at me. And Henrik got to the people from the news too. He's made enough money out of you guys... tomorrow's battle will be tough.
Tuolog - Who's that in back?
They could slightly see a shadowy figure sitting slumped at the back.
Zr'Ahgloth - OI YOO LETS GO
The figure stood up, and they could see that it was Falrik Zaarkhun. One of the other clones.
Falrik Zaarkhun - Well, well, well. Look who's playing hero now. I still got the memory of my 'father', and the time you-
He pointed at the Kralgon Emperor
Falrik Zaarkhun - killed him.
Kralgon Emperor - Hmpf. Why would they trap you?
Falrik Zaarkhun - Obvious, isn't it? They wanted to pose as the Zaarkhun Consortium, so you can blame it on us if you ever get out. Well we're not behind this. At least, not this year.
Zr'Ahgloth - YOR DUM MAN OI PEEPZ CAN I EET HIM I DUNT FHINK HES OF ANY USE
Apollo - Get back to the appartment. We need to talk.
Falrik Zaarkhun - Hold on a sec-
Falrik Zaarkhun disabled everyone's electric collars.
Zr'Ahgloth - WOAH MAN I WUS ABOOT TA CRUSH YAS SOZ
Falrik Zaarkhun - I built those things, I know how to un-build them. Anyway, let's head off. Prophet Nexatru- I don't dare call him Henrik Zaarkhun- can't see you now.
They sneaked back into UNO's appartment.
Falrik Zaarkhun - So then, Nexatru-remember him?- we were working together, if you remember. My father happened to tell him about me and the other clones. He caught me, and used my DNA to make a new body for him when he dies. Then, if he dies, he can pose as my brother, as the body he creates using my DNA looks enough like me to look like a brother.
Zr'Ahgloth - WAT MATTAS NOW IS DAT WE CAN FINALLY CRUSH HIM MAN NO MOR ELECTRIC SHOKS
Falrik Zaarkhun - I wouldn't be so sure; if I remember correctly, he had other ways of securing the place. You gotta catch him by surprise.
Kralgon Emperor - We can think of something.
Falrik Zaarkhun - No need, I already have.
Kralgon Emperor - Oh? What is it then?
Falrik Zaarkhun installed fake collars to them.
Falrik Zaarkhun - You go in, you fight as normal. When you defeat the final boss, Henrik will take you to some recruiting zone. There, you'll get him to talk. Make him tell you everything he plans, and Harris, Harriet and the anouncer here can film him and broadcast it to the entire First Gigaquadrant. I'll also step in the video and prove that Zaarkhun are innocent. Meanwhile, there's somethnig I need you for, Apollo.
Apollo - What?
Falrik Zaarkhun - Buy this station.
Apollo - Hmm?
Falrik Zaarkhun - Trust me, you can use it. It's currently secretly contrlled by the Confederacy. If you expose it, then the price will go down quickly. And come on, look at this place! Not only is it worth a hell of a lot, but it can spread the Republic's influence in this sector.
Apollo - Sounds good. I can turn this place into something good, and not some crime hole.
Falrik Zaarkhun - Indeed. I'd want it myself, but I got plenty other places to use. Oh and all I ask from you lot in return is for us just to leave each other alone.
The group looked at each other for some instants.
Tuolog - We agree.
Falrik Zaarkhun - Great! So then, we'll all go with the plan. Do it right tomorrow, ok?
Zr'Ahgloth - YEH MAN WE IS GONNA BATTA DEM
They all went to sleep, and woke up right in the arena, with Zaarkhun, the anouncer, Harris and Harriet gone, however. Al four of them were right in the middle.
Anouncer - Ladies and gentlemen, I'm back!
The crowd roared, and chanted Team URC's name.
Kralgon Emperor - Let's play along until the boss is down.
Tuolog - Hmm, play along til after that. Remember get 'Henrik' to talk.
Anouncer - They've all been thrown right in the middle of the very final battle.
Zr'Ahgloth - IMMA BATTA WATEVA COMS BRING IT ON
Anouncer - As this is the last battle, we're all going to leave it all up to the audience to decide what happens. So then, chose which 2 heroes you want to go up!
Zr'Ahgloth - ;;ME MAN CHOOS ME YOO KNO I IS DA BEST
The crowd selected, and chose Apollo and the Kralgon Emperor.
Anouncer - We haven't seen these two fight yet... good choice crowd!
Zr'Ahgloth - WAT DA HELL
Anouncer - Now it's up to the crowd how they will fight...
The crowd selected, and they chose to give the two random weapons.
Anouncer - Oooh.. random weapons! These guns function and respond completely randomly. Yep, they're totally unrealiable!
Apollo - Great...I'm a really bad fighter, and now this.
Anouncer - And you can already see the Team's gonna have tough time! So then, now it's up to you to chose who they fight...
The crowd selected, and the most popular vote came in. The Anouncer's eyes widened.
Anouncer - Oh my god...
There wasa huge silence.
Kralgon Emperor - So? Go on!
Anouncer - I can't believe the audience chose this... They must really have faith in the team if they want them to fight these guys...
Apollo - I'm getting worried now.
Anouncer - They're gonna be fighting....*gulp*...
Zr'Ahgloth - OH MA DAYS SAY IT ALREADY
Anouncer - They're all gonna be up against...urm... LORON!
The crowd bood.
Zr'Ahgloth - WAT
Anouncer - Ok, that wasn't the most popular result. The most popular result was...err...
Henrik - You're not trying to lie UNO's way out of this, are you?
Anouncer - ....They're fighting Zanu'Paxka....
The fighters gasped.
Kralgon Emperor - Demons? You have got to be kidding me...
Anouncer - So then, we're gonna send out a Vi'Navitum signal that ticks off Kamik enough to send a bunch of Xhonet to fight our Team... All I can say is... it was a pleasure having you on this show.
Apollo - Seriously? Is there really an option like that?
Henrik - Of course there is, it's Krassio design. But the Krassio are gone now, so it's used for entertainment.
Kralgon Emperor - Do you even know what a Xhoustoe and a Xhonet are? Ugh, this is suicide even for you. Henrik - You mean that this place is gonna go down? I'm sure it will. At least it's entertainment for all the people watching... and imagine the station being destroyed by demons! We'd earn millions, and it'd be so great for our ratings...muhahahahha!
Zr'Ahgloth - SCREW DIS MAN IM GOIN AFTA YOO
Zr'Ahgloth charged up to Henrik, but was knocked down by a forcefield. Before Zr'Ahgloth fell into the lava, Tuolog warped him back up.
Anouncer - HEY GUYS ONE LAST OPTION! WHICH OTHER TWO DO YOU WANT TO FIGHT? Oh look, there's only two left. So it seems all four of them will be fighting the demons. Now then....*gulp*...let's sound the horn, shall we...?
Henrik - Get on with it!
Even Zr'Ahgloth looked worried.
Zr'Ahgloth - I FOUGH DESE PEEPZ BEFOR MAN I DUNT FHINK WE HAV ANY CHANCE
The horn was sounded, sending a message in a strange sound. Everyone's heart was beating fast.
Kralgon Emperor - We can only hope this message fails...
Henrik - Wait for it... will they take the bate... take the damn bait...
A portal opened up in the arena, and a Xhonet came out.
Zr'Ahgloth - OH MAN DA FLIPPIN XHONET ZANU'PAXKA ONE APPEARED
Zanu'Paxka - Which one of you is sending your pathetic messages to try and get us to entertain you by fighting? That was obviously a fake message.
Zr'Ahgloth - IT WAS DAT HENRIK DOOD MAN YOO SHOULD TOTALLY KILL HIM
Xhonet - For disgracing us like that, I will destroy everything here!
The Xhonet pointed at the team.
Xhonet - Starting with you...
Zr'Ahgloth - HUR I BATTARED YOO ONCE I CAN BATTA YOO AGAIN
Apollo and the Kralgon Emperor both recieved their random weapons.
Anoucer - Remember guys, you vote on which setting the weapon is. Please vote only the good stuff...
The crowd voted for a pistol.
Anouncer - We're doomed... soon as they're dead so are we...
Kralgon Emperor - A pistol?! You idiots! If we don't win, YOU ALL DIE!
Henrik - That's right, the Team dies, crowd and space station next. The perfect entertainment!
Anouncer - Urrm... begin...
Tuolog examined it.
Tuolog - It seems this Xhonet only have Demonic Energy. He not have Chaos.
Apollo - Well, here goes nothing...
Apollo fired at the Xhonet.
Xhonet - Was that meant to hurt, tiny thing?!
The Xhonet stamped near Apollo, who ran off.
Tuolog - My go!
Tuolog fired blasts of Gyronic at the Xhonet, and Zr'Ahgloth jumped and started to attack him the fastest he could. The Xhonet was taken aback. It kicked Tuolog, who only just managed to avoid falling in the lava, and chucked Zr'Ahgloth into the lava, for Tuolog to teleport him out.
Zr'Ahgloth - YOR LUCKY I DUT HAV MA SIK GUN HEER LOSA
They continued fighting, and started to cause a little damage to the Xhonet, when...
Anouncer - All right! Now you get to change the setting of the gun, cast in your votes!
The votes came in.
Henrik - Damn, that's a hell of a gun...
Anouncer - This gun... is banned... you know that? It was banned for being too dangerous...
Kralgon Emperor - We'll take it!
Henrik - Too dangerous? Illegal outside this sport? That's superb for our ratings, nice choice!
Anouncer - The crowd chose the Dark-o-ray. An illegal gun based off stolen Junction technology, it fires the same dark energy that the Junction uses to fight against foes. We're not sure whether this'll kill just the Xhonet, or everyone here....
Zr'Ahgloth - I REMEMBA DA JUNCTION BOYZ DEY HAD SIK GUNZ
Henrik - Heh, these kind of weapons are weapons you only find here, people!
The team looked at each other.
Kralgon Emperor - This weapon may save us...
Apollo - ...or kill us.
Zr'Ahgloth - SHUT UP MAN FIRE AT DA XHONIE BOY ALREADY
After a bit of silence, brokn by dodging the Xhonet, and Tuolog using his energy to stop it...
Kralgon Emperor - All four of us vote; is it worth the risk? And hurry up with the vote, because that Xhonet is getting powerful...
Tuolog - ...I...Can't...Weaken...Much...Longer... I say fire gun. It worth risk.
Apollo - He can't look into the future with how busy he is weakening the Xhonet, so we aren't to know... It's worth the risk. Go for it.
Zr'Ahgloth - JUST FIRE DA FLIPPIN GUN
Kralgon Emperor - Fine! Here we go!
They fired the gun at the Xhonet. The Xhonet was trapped in a dark energy bubble, which kept getting smaller and smaller, curshing it.
Apollo - It...it worked!
Tuolog, with the last of his effort, used all his Psionic energy to finish off the trapped Xhonet. They had won.
Zr'Ahgloth - WE WON MAN WE IS DA BEST DERE IS
Henrik - ...
Anouncer - ...
The crowd let off an enormous cheer.
Zr'Ahgloth - AN NOW I WANNA KILL DAT HENRIK LOSA
They were all teleported away to some room, which was Henrik's private office.
Henrik - I... don't know what to say after that. You're champions...
Tuolog - Now it time for you to say everything.
Henrik looked excited.
Henrik - It is, it is! I got loads to talk about, for a start record deals for Zr'Ahgloth, make-up deals for Apollo, and oh Tuolog, wannabe a Yoga master? And Kralgon Emperr, my god you are gonna go far in the jobs I've picked for you! But overall, how do you feel about, as well as all tem jos serving as our new Bosses on Zaarkhun Games?
Zr'Ahgloth - YOR PLANS MAN WE WANNA KNOW YOR PLANS
Henrik - Oh of course! My plans are for you all to take over as the new Bosses. You get to kill cntesants, hae more fame than ever, be more rich than ever, live in this luxurious appartment for free. Imagine it! Cars, money, women, all the things you ever wished for, and you have the most fun jobever-beating the hell outta people!
Tuolog - And brainwash people to believe everything.
Henrik - Oh yeah, your reputation... I mean c'mon, who wouldn't like to be known as the baddest baddass in the galaxy?
Zr'Ahgloth - ITS NOT FUN IF YOO DUNT EARN DAT
Henrik - You will be earning that in this job, yknow!
Apollo whsipered to the Kralgon Emperor.
Apollo - Are they recording this yet?
Kralgon Emperor - No, they won't be til Zaarkhun comes in.
Henrik - You do realise, however, you don't have a choice on the matter.
Zr'Ahgloth - OH YEH?
Henrik transformed into the Nex Prophet.
Nexatru Prophet - Thanks to prisoner Falrik Zaarkhun for this body... Yeah I've already told you that I'm the Nex Prophet and Nexatru. Call me.. Nexatru Prophet. You probably got a lot to ask me...
Kralgon Emperor - How and why did you brough us here?
Nexatru Prophet - Remember I faked that will for me? From when you killed me that is. I only brought you here so that I can use you. And I had specific reasons for chosing each one of you. Apollo, I need you away, so that my friends at the CAS can use you. Kralgon Emperor, I needed you away because of your importance to UNO. Zr'Ahgloth, without you, UNO has no real 'muscle' behind them, and Tuolog, without you, the Ioketa hibernate, That way, there's no one to detect that we're using Psionic to brainwash you all to believe the lies.
Zr'Ahgloth - YOO SUK MAN
Nexatru Prophet - You must realise I'm doing a good thing.. Thanks to us, the CAS will win, and peace will prevail. You'll be rich as hell, and be the baddest baddasses ever. And UNO will join the CAS, when they realise they have no way to fight anyone. Doesn't that sound perfect to you?
Zr'Ahgloth - HUR LOSA WE WILL STOP YOO
Nexatru Prophet - How?
In his usual fashion, Falrik Zaarkhun walked out.
Falrik Zaarkhun - Easily.
Falrik Zaarkhun pointed a gun at Nexatru.
Falrik Zaarkhun - You realise, of course, we've been recording this entire thing...
Nexatru - And so what if you have? I didn't get to finish; this entire space station is a subspace compression wave. It'll blow up the entire Inner core of Cyrannus, if I'm feeling nice enough not to destroy the enitre galaxy.
Zr'Ahgloth grabbed Nexatru by the neck.
Zr'Ahgloth - IMMA KILL YOO NOW
Falrik Zaarkhun - For posing as the Zaarkhun Consortium, you deserve nothing more than death!
Zr'Ahgloth crushed Nexatru's neck, killing him.
Zr'Ahgloth - oh man killin dat dood felt guud
Falrik Zaarkhun - I think we're done here.
Apollo - Let's get out of here.
"Warning! Warning! Self destruction imminent!"
Kralgon Emperor - Oh damnit... it's travelling in hyperspace to the Inner Core, where the wave will activate...
Zr'Ahgloth - DAT WAS TRUE? OH MA DAYS MAN CAN WE STOP DIS?
Tuolog - I can try.
Tuolog tried to use his mind and essence to get into the centre of the space station and turn it off.
Tuolog - I going to need you each to help.
Kralgon Emperor - Right.
Tuolog - Kralgon Emperor, you hack into the security and deactivate it, ok?
Kralgon Emperor - Doing it now.
Tuolog - Apollo, your mind needed. Your diplomatic mind good for talking to this station.
Apollo - All right.
Tuolog - You see we need diplomatic mind to talk to station, that the second bit of security. Now for third... Zr'Ahgloth.
Zr'Ahgloth - WAT MAN
Tuolog - Go over to the big computer downstairs, and smash it to pieces.
Zr'Ahgloth - SIK
Zr'Ahgloth went and smashed the computer, recieving an electric shock.
Tuolog - I in! Now then...
Tuolog - There one last security...
Kralgon Emperor - What is it?
Tuolog - It seems like the machine...
Tuolog laughed his head off.
Tuolog - It requires 5000 sporebucks to activate.
Zr'Ahgloth - WAH MAN DIS MACHINES PLAYIN WIV US
Apollo inserted 5000 Sporebucks into it.
Tuolog - That easy.
The station stopped, changed direction and turned off.
Kralgon Emperor - Great, it's working.
Tuolog - We did it!
Zr'Ahgloth - WE IS DA BEST MAN
Apollo - There's one last thing to do...
Apollo walked up to the station's market.
Kralgon Emperor - I think he went to buy the station...
Tuolog - Good. It will be better place under URC's control.
Apollo walked back, shaking his head.
Apollo - It's already been bought out...
Kralgon Emperor - What? By who?
Apollo - By Zaarkhun...
Zr'Ahgloth - CAN WE BLOW IT UP NOW?
Apollo - We agreed to leave hm alone idiot!
Zr'Ahgloth - AW
Apollo - At least what happened around here would expand our interest further. And Falrik is much better than Nexatru...
Tuolog - I wonder what happened to Roshisiz...
Kralgon Emperor - We'll go after him later. But either way, I'm glad this is all over.
Tuolog - Let's go home now. I need to wake up those slackers.
Here is the basic story if uyu don't want to read the whol e thing. Warning: if you are intending to read the whole thing, there are major spoilers ahead!
Apollo, Zr'Ahgloth, the Kralgon Emperor and Tuolog, from the URC and UNO respectively, went to the will of the dead Nexatru. As part of the will, they were poisoned, and they were told to go to Loktia Resort in the Mid Rim of Cyrannus to achieve the antidote. To achieve it, they had to patake in an illegal gladiator sport.
The sport's news lied about them on a universal scale, making them seem villainous, and using some drugs and Psinic energuy, everyone believed that the sport's lies were true. The games were sad to be run by Zaarkhun Consortium.
Eventually, it was revealed that Zaarkhun weren't behind this, just Nexatru and the Nex Prophet using a clone of Falrik Zaarkhun as a body and posing as Zaarkhun. The team killed Nexatru, and word got out that they were being lied about, helping to spread the URC's influence.
The 4 returned home, back to take control of their empires. After a while, everything was back to normal. The Loktia Resort was, in fact, in good hands; the next Zaarkhun Games would happen soon, and would be as genuine as an illegal combat sport can get. The station was still a crimehole, though, but that was no biggy; at least the URC knew where crime was at, and the CAS had no control over the station.
It was a fitting happy ending. Or was it...?
Tuolog - Let's go home now. I need to wake up those slackers.
The shadowy figure watched as the 4 of them walked away. He reached out for the communicator on his ear, and began talking.
"Yeah, the 4 of them have gone. They'll be going back to their normal lives now. Nothin' gained, nothin' lost. Well, we've gained a hell of a lot of cash, and taken it all from Nexatru. Like I was gonna let him carry on, anyway. That's right, Roshisiz, they never did get their hands on the station. Zaarkhun wanted to buy it, but he was 5,000 sporebucks free. Y'know what he did? He charged Apollo and pretended it was some sort of security thing. Hah. Now that he's bought it, he's in full control of it again. Victory for us. No, Roshisiz. It seems no one found out that I was the anouncer. And no one discovered those two humans I 'made' for the news. Ah, I'm a master of biology.
"The show will run on as normal. No, a shame, no one's reputation was tarnished. The CAS' was, however, now people see them as more corrupt than before. I doubt Zillium will be happy. All I say is that I don't believe in peace. Heh, guess that makes us even then. Did I tell you I provoked the Rogue Loron to come in the show? And yeah, they did get a Xhonet to come in. Ha! Uhh yeah, I think that's all I have to report. Yes, I did manage to place tabs on the 3 UNOL members, I even placed them on 2 others. When I strike next? I dunno, but I got plenty of funds now. Yes, we did agree on sharing the cash, and I'm fine with it.
"That's all. I'll be right there. Kol Daren out."
