PostSubject: The Adventures of Wheatley and Zerdark: Koopa Island Edition   Mon Aug 01, 2016 9:04 pm

First topic message reminder :

A small ship begins to approach an unfamiliar harbor. The man at the helm yells to wake his sleeping passengers. "Oi! Wake your asses up! We've got land! Land ho! Lan-" "Aaaaaguh!" A thud is heard as Wheatley collides with the man's head. "Oww..." "Ey!" An un-amused Zerdark stands in front of the door to the captain's room. "Would you stop your screaming you drunk cyclops? I'm trying to catch up on sleep..." "What're ye talkin' about? It's got to be way past mornin' now!" "Well someone kept me up all night with their sea shanties and partying." "Aah, don't pretend like you don't love em!" "Tavish. You wouldn't stop for hours. I only got to sleep sometime after 4 in the morning. You know how I know this? I threw my watch at the wall in frustration and it must have broke. For all I know it could have been even later." "Eheheh...sorry laddie." "You're paying for that watch by the way. Now if you pull this crap again, I'm drowning you in the saltwater and sailing myself home." "Ooh, that's just the crankiness talking! Come on, have a drink with me! That'll cheer ya right up!" "No. No it won't. What'll cheer me up is finding that island I described to you. I specifically asked for your help because of your past experiences sailing. I swear if I made the wrong decision-" "What'd ye think I got ya up for? We're coming up on it right now!"

The ship begins to dock at the harbor, where a bunch of Koopas begin to gather. Zerdark just looks at them and sighs internally. "...You've gotta be fucking kidding me." "What?" "This is what I was worried about? They're adorable. I was expecting battle hardened warriors, not a trip to the aquarium." "Oh, look at all the turtles! I've never seen em that big before!" "Tavish, you stay with the ship. I'm gonna go look around." "Ooh, you mean it? Maybe we can take one home with us!" "I somehow doubt that'll go over well. Besides, do you remember your pet goldfish?" "I was only trying to hand-feed it, I didn't think I'd electrocute the thing!" "You don't even have hands!" "Well...alright, I see, point to you. That might have been a flaw in my otherwise flawless plan. Just a small one though." "I'm not getting you another pet." "Aww...okay then." "Now then, let's get moving. With any luck, maybe these people have built an inn nearby." "You just want to sleep? But we just got here!" "I see an opportunity to nap, I'm taking it. Why do you think I told Tavish to stay behind?" "Ah...fair point."

"He instated me as a governor, and I designed this district to be friendly and accommodating to the ghost community. Also, my father, King Boo, has a mansion in Forever Forest. He serves as a liaison between King Bowser and the ghost community at large. Bowser's pretty great at that. He listens to the people, and hires his advisors and governors to represent groups of the population. The bureaucratic system is beautifully integrated. King Bowser may be a Koopa himself, but everyone flourishes under his rule. For more information, I suggest you go explore the other districts of the city! King Bob-Omb governs the industrial section, and it's just to the liking of the Bob-ombs. They feel right at home and have all the amenities paid for. General Guy may be the King's most celebrated military leader, but he also governs the colorful Toybox region of the city. You'd really be surprised seeing how the Shy Guys thrive. And as for the plazas... well, the commercial and public areas of the city are under the rule of Don Pianta. He's... a little unusual as a governor. He doesn't represent the Piantas anymore, but he used to be head of the Pianta Syndicate, based out of Rogueport. He specializes in security, if you know what I mean. The Pianta community as a whole thrives in Delfino Plaza, which is the second most populous area on the continent. It's even larger geographically than Koopa City, and serves as the capital of tourism."

It sounds like she's reading off a brochure... which she is. After she finishes, she hands the brochure to Zerdark.

She turns to address Wheatley now. "And as for you, I've never seen a subspecies of Boo like you before! I'm obligated to give you this pamphlet detailing your new status, but it sounds like you're pretty familiar with yourself by now. Still, if you have time, why don't you head over to Forever Forest and talk to my father?"

"Oh, well this will definitely prove useful. Thank you." Zerdark seems satisfied with the information presented and places the brochure in his robes. "This Kingdom is definitely interesting...I wish I could have brought the family with us. Oh well, maybe another day." "Wait...Boo? Is that what I'm supposed to be?"

"Is it? I... can't quite tell," Bow admits. "Nonetheless, I do recommend a visit to my father. He's welcoming to all spirits and ghosts, which you do appear to be."

"He is definitely a spirit or ghost of some description, that much we're sure of. But we never did learn what exactly he is." "Yeah, that's right. I just showed up one day in his bedroom around...how old were you, again?" "Twelve." "Several tens of years ago!" "Decades." "Right! So anyway, I just show up, in this child's bedroom, no idea where I am, or what I am, but his family just kind of...took me in! It was quite astonishing really, the hospitality that is, very welcoming. We've been best mates ever since! Had a whale of a time!" "I still wish we could find out what exactly you are though...maybe this King Boo can help with that."

"Interesting..."

Another Boo, with a mustache and grey hair, appears. "Ah... Lady Bow, do not forget... You have a meeting with the King in half an hour..." He vanishes again. "Oh, don't worry, I haven't forgotten."

She turns back to Wheatley. "No memories of a past life?" she inquires.

"Nope! No memory at all, which is a bit unsettling, if I'm honest."

"Perhaps not, but a ghost King would have all sorts of information and experience at his disposal...thank you very much Lady Bow. You've been very helpful." "Yeah, very helpful! Now we have a lead, which is more than before, where we were stumbling through the dark! Literally, actually, now-now that I look...around. There doesn't appear to be much light, in this place...that's quite- it's alarming, to say the least."

"Yes, Boos tend to prefer dark environments. (And Doopliss too for some reason.) I do my best to ensure this area of the city is shielded from the sun. If you're looking for brightness, I suggest any other district of the city."

"I actually find it strangely comforting. If nothing else, it certainly beats having the sun constantly beating down on my head. And in the event I need to protect myself, it's far easier to conceal my tricks in the darkness. I can't help but appreciate the tactical advantage." "J-Just don't get murdered! You keep saying I can't die, so...don't you die! That'd be pretty bad, very much bad, to say the least." "Hey, I've survived this long. You know me, I'll be fine. By the way, I've been eyeing those knives for quite a while...and that bat would make the perfect gift for someone I know..." Zerdark casually tosses a bag of gold in Doopliss' direction. "If you'd be so kind as to prepare a bag for my purchases, that'd be delightful." "R-Right away Mr. Moneybags! Heh heh..."

"Thank you for your patronage! I assure you, we frown upon unwarranted murders occurring in our streets. As head of security, The Don makes sure that the only murders that happen are the ones he orders." It goes without saying that Bowser or Kamek's approval is always given before Don Pianta brings his foot down.

"I have a weakness for trinkets such as these I'll admit...if I'm ever in the area again, I'll have to come take another look. Perhaps it could be said I have more money than sense sometimes? Oh well, it hasn't gotten me killed yet. As for the Don, he certainly sounds impressive...to keep a lid on the murder rate like that is no small feat. He has my respect."

"It helps that nearly everyone who dies becomes a Boo anyways, and would be able to file a case against their own murderer. Unless said murderer was the government itself."

"Is that how it works here? ...Very interesting. Not to mention incredibly efficient. I imagine murder trials here are quite swift. Would it be too morbid if I wanted to attend such a trial? This has me very curious...mother and father would definitely be interested in the legal system here as well. I'll have to tell them all about it next chance I get."

"Well, you see, they don't happen very often... The Don is also the judge for such trials, and the penalty is always death too. A far more common crime is cheating at the casino. And in the Stock Market. And, well, graffiti. Which is why we count on tourists like you to make sure to report all suspicious artwork to the nearest patrol."

"Eye for an eye, hm? Sounds fair to me. But cheating at the casino? That's just...low. If you're going to gamble, do it right. The card table is not to be desecrated with dirty underhanded tactics! ...Ahem. As for graffiti, that's just distasteful. Though now that you mention it, I do remember seeing a crude drawing on the side of what I think was the bank. I'd...really rather not describe the drawing in question."

Another Boo appears in the room. Seems like he was there the whole time, just invisible. "Report filed. Thanks." He disappears again.

"Well, I have to go prepare some files for my meeting... Thank you for visiting! You're, uh, free to stay and chat with Doopliss if you want...."

"Ah, of course. Don't let me keep you; I'm sure you're quite busy. I have everything I need, so we'll be heading off now." "Aww...you're not gonna spend more money?" "Perhaps next time. There's still plenty more for me to see after all.. Maybe I'll go play at the casino before we go find King Boo..." "Oh...well, come back soon! Your money's always welcome here, slick. I'll have some new items in stock that'll knock your pants off! Maybe even literally!" "...Please don't." "Agh, killjoy."

Several days later, Wheatley and Zerdark find themselves at the gated entrance to Forever Forest.  Wheatley attempts to push the gates open, but fails. "Ngh...! Gate's not opening!" "Let me try..." Zerdark tries pulling instead, but that also fails. "See? I'm not lying!" "Hmm...well I suppose I could always try-" "We have been expecting you..." Two Boos above the gate make themselves visible. "King Boo requests your presence in Boo Mansion." They open the gate and disappear. "Oh! Well that was helpful!" "Hmm..." The two head into the forest, only to be met with many different possible paths and turns. "Ohh...maybe this wasn't such a good idea, sir. What if we get lost?!" "Well obviously if that happens, I'll just hold onto you and you fly us out of here." "Are you out of you- I don't have enough anti-gravity for both of us! You want me to crash back down?! Madness!" "Relax, I'm only joking. Though your point is still valid." Another Boo makes himself visible and heads down a path before turning invisible again. "Well that's either a trap or our hint. I like those odds." "Well what if it is a trap?!" "Well then I guess I turn into a Boo and can fly myself back home." "I don't think the wife'll be too happy, about that...not happy at all." "Neither will my parents or the children for that matter. I guess we'll just have to be extra careful, won't we?" "Ah ha! Now that's the language I speak, good old safety! Safety in not dying!" "That said, let's follow the Boo. If this King Boo is seriously requesting our presence, I doubt he'd do anything to obstruct us on our way."

The two end up following the Boo through the forest, and end up at the front gates to Boo Mansion, just like Zerdark had thought. "See? I told you we'd be fine." Two Boos appear at the top of this gate as well. "King Boo...welcomes you to his mansion. Head on through." The gates open as lightning strikes. Coincidence? It's certainly enough to frighten Wheatley who hides behind Zerdark. "It's just thunder. Besides, that means lightning which is your element. Wouldn't that just make you stronger?" "Oh, well I like the sound of that! A stronger Wheatley, big and strong! With big bulging muscles! Electrified metal muscles! The best kind. Well, other than the brain, of course. Biggest muscle in my body, my brain. Second biggest, my muscles." "Mmhm. Let's just head inside, shall we?"

They head inside the mansion, where they find several Boos of various colors and sizes just kinda...hanging out. Some are reading, some are playing tag up near the chandelier, some are admiring the artwork on the walls, and others are gathered around a table playing poker. "Ooh, these are my kind of ghosts! Think we have time to join them for a round?" "I dunno, that King Boo might get mad, you know. Don't wanna keep a King waiting..." Zerdark sighs at this. "I guess you have a point there..." Just then, a Boo butler appears. "Ah, you must be King Boo's guests. He is expecting you in the meeting hall in a few minutes. Shall I take you there now?" "Please do." The butler leads them down several long hallways before eventually leading them down into the basement. He stops just in front of an oddly shaped door with a spade shape on it. "King Boo is just inside. Whenever you're ready, sirs." He disappears, leaving Zerdark to pull the door open and head inside with Wheatley.

Inside appears to be...nothing. Just a huge empty room, but with a mirror covering the entirety of the opposite wall. Zerdark walks up to the mirror and stares intently at his reflection, which begins to shift into the reflection of...Robin? Before Zerdark has time to question this, a distinctive cackle can be heard coming from behind him as another shape takes form in the mirror, which causes even Zerdark to flinch. "Eeeheehee! I am King Boo, spookiest of all the spirits! I know who you are, Zerdark Gavin of Drachurst!" "What the...how?!" "Eeehee! You can't hide anything from the king of all ghosts! I know everything about you...I just had to do a little digging. But don't worry, I have no interest in your country, your king, your wife, or even your daughter living in the woods..." "Ngh...!" "Heehee, the look on your face is precious! But feel free to relax, I'm no liar! Of that you can be assured! After all, I'm a ghost! What use do I have for lies? I just wanted to have a more educated position in our discussion." "Well...if what you say is true, then I can safely assume you know why we're here." "Precisely! Come on out, Wheatley! I don't bite!" Wheatley comes out from Zerdark's shadow as King Boo eyes him. "Hmm...yes...well you're definitely cute enough to be one of mine!" "Ahm...what?" "Wait, so is he a Boo or not?" "To tell the truth..." He raises his arms above him in a comical shrugging motion. "I'm not sure! I've never seen a ghost like him before, but he kinda looks like one of us. I don't find any other ghost types cute either, so he must be close enough! I have to wonder how you got separated from the rest of us though...and with no memory?" "Nope, nothing." "Most troubling...though even among us Boos, memory loss isn't that uncommon. Which is why I offer a place to call home among society for these poor lost and adorable souls! Though it looks like you already beat me to that with Wheatley here, huh Gavin?" "I guess I did." "Not many living folks would do that for a ghost down on their luck. Especially not a mortal child with their own problems." "Oh, I didn't do much..." "Are you quite sure? What was it again Wheatley said you two were...?" "He's my best mate!" "Yes, that. You offered a poor spirit down on their luck companionship. As I said, not many would do that. Most would chase us out with their accursed flashlights and vacuums! But not you! For that, you have my respect and appreciation mortal. Boo-kind...welcomes you two. You Wheatley as a one of a kind Boo, and you mortal, as a friend to Boo-kind. Boo Mansion and Forever Forest is open to you two. Come by anytime!" "Wow...that's so nice! Isn't that incredible, sir? We've been accepted!" "I will send word to everyone that you two are to be treated as one of us. And to you Mortal, I grant a gift." A Boo Butler appears and offers a crystal ball to Zerdark. "Take good care of this crystal ball. Use this, and some of your new brothers and sisters will come to assist you wherever you may be. Consider this as me returning the favor. After all, I'm sure you don't want to die anytime soon! Though when you do inevitably die, we will welcome you just the same! And I'll be waiting! Eeeheeheeheeeeee!" King Boo disappears, leaving a wide-eyed Zerdark still processing what just happened.

Zerdark and Wheatley leave King Boo's chamber and head back up to the foyer where a large group of Boos are waiting for them. "Hey, it's the new guys!" "Uhm, new guys?" "Yeah, you two! Come play with us!" "Play? Well, uh, sure. Why not? Sounds like it could be fun! What about you, sir?" "Well I kind of wanted to get going so..." Four Boos fly up from under Zerdark and start carrying him around the manor. "New friends!" "H-Hey! Put me down!" "Oh...dear...wait for me!!!"

Wheatley and Zerdark end up spending more time at the manor than they had originally intended, as the Boos were quite eager to get to know their new friends. Zerdark was flown to room after room to get acquainted with each individual Boo and take part in various games.

"So I just...hit one of you with this hammer?" "Right! Pick the one you think holds the coin bag, and it's yours!" "I had my doubts, but it sounds fun in theory...alright, let's try it." "Alright! Everyone move!"

Zerdark ends up playing several rounds with the Boos, resulting in several head injuries that healed in no time flat. "I didn't even know you could hit ghosts." "Can ya maybe hit a little lighter next time...?" "Er, right. Sorry." "Heh, just kidding! You can't hurt us too badly, we're dead! Just don't go waving any flashlights at us."

They then get taken to a room where they play poker. "Okay now this is my game!" "Ah ha! Don't count me out of the game yet, for I hold all of the cards! And they're all full houses!" The Boos give Wheatley a weird look before Zerdark whispers to them. "Just smile and nod. Let him have this one." They end up playing for a while, with Zerdark winning the majority of the matches. Next they enter some sort of art studio.

"Is this really necessary?" "Hold still! King Boo will want this to be perfect!" Zerdark sighs as Wheatley lightly bounces up and down above his shoulder. "We're gonna be art! Let me tell you, I am a really big art enthusi...enthus...fan! Really appreciate all that. Oil paintings, finger paintings, that macaroni piece we did back in the second grade...love it, it's just dynamite." "I think you just went backwards in art quality..."

Eventually, a loud clock chimes as it strikes midnight. "Aaagh! Does that thing have to be so loud? ...Wait, it's midnight? Couldn't tell really, it's like it's always dark round here." "Well I don't really want to be doing too much traveling at night...don't suppose we can stay the night?" "Why of course! We have plenty of beds we're not using! Go ahead, just pick a room, pick a bed and fall in it when you're tired." "Oh, well that's rather nice, innit?" "Yeah, thanks. I'd like to just go to bed now..."

Zerdark ends up walking down a hall and opening the door to one of the guest rooms, only for a Boo to scare him immediately upon entry. As the Boo is laughing however, Zerdark digs through his robes for the Bowser mask he bought days ago and puts it on. When the Boo looks up at Zerdark again, it gets scared and flies into the wardrobe, leaving Zerdark to smirk to himself about his revenge. "No other tricks? Good, I'll be going to bed now." "N-no fair..."

A few days later, we find Wheatley and Zerdark doing some sightseeing at Glitzville. "Is...I'm sorry, is that a pig monster? In front of a hot dog stand? Isn't that, you know, a betrayal of his species, or something? I thought cannibalism, was frowned upon in this world's society, you know, generally speaking." "Well you see I...huh. I actually don't have an answer for you this time, that's just weird." "See? I knew it! That pig must be some sort of...self hating monster! Or, or, he's betrayed his entire species, sold them out, just so he could live! It's genius, and horrible!" "Let's just stay far away from that guy. I don't want to end up on the menu over our conspiracy theories here." "You DO know I can hear every word you're saying, right?" "Waaaugh! It heard us! How?!" "Well we are ten feet from the stand. I've had my fill of cannibalistic pigs today though, let's check out the souvenir stand instead." "Ooh! I wonder what sort of toys or hats they have! Something to bring home to the missus? Or maybe the kids! Morgan loves toys! Morgan does too, I think. Probably."

They leave a very insulted hot dog stand owner and head over to the souvenir shop, looking over all the little figurines of various fighters in the Glitz Pit. "Ooh, look at this one sir! It's a golden chicken! I've never seen one of those before!" "Huh. How about that." "That's Rawk Hawk, the current reigning Champion of the Glitz Pit." The shopkeep says as he walks over. "Also he's not a chicken, and he'd probably pound you into the dirt if he heard you say that." "Well...what is he?" "I dunno. He's the only one of his kind I've ever seen. We just call him Rawk Hawk." "I guess he's a hawk then. A really big hawk. Must be tougher than he looks in this figurine if he's a fighting champion. So how long has he been Champion anyway?" "Almost a year now. He was ranked just behind the previous Champion before he went and disappeared." "Disappeared?" "Yeah. No one knows where he went. The first Champion of the Glitz Pit, Prince Mush. There are all sorts of rumors floating around the place since he disappeared. The higher ups in charge of Glitzville wanna keep a tight lid on things though, so you didn't hear it from me." "A disappearing Champion? That's awfully convenient for the one right behind him..." "Yeah, some thought the same as you. Nothing came up in the investigation though, so most agree that Rawk Hawk's innocent." "But nothing came up in the investigation? Nothing at all?" "Awfully suspicious, isn't it? I wanna keep my job though, so I don't go pestering management about another investigation. I hear some other rumors that some fighters sneak away to investigate on their own in secret. Not everyone's buying the official explanation for what happened." "Well I don't buy it either. Come along, Wheatley." "Huh? Where are we going?" "This case interests me and we have time. I have an idea..."

A few hours later, Zerdark is escorted backstage in The Glitz Pit to the manager's office. Only something is much different about him. Mainly, his outfit. He now appears to be wearing some sort of costume. A black trench coat and a matching hat. When he enters the manager's office, the manager is the first to speak. "Who in tarnation are you?! This here is Grubba's office, who let you in?!" Zerdark then lowers the pitch of his voice and speaks in an over the top manner. "When evil walks the streets, one man lurks in the shadows. Shielding the innocent, judging the guilty...that guardian is me, The Silver Shroud!" "HOO-wee, we've got ourselves an up-an-comer! That definitely do change a thing or two, I always got time for new fighters. An' you already got yourself an identity, that speeds things up greatly! I think the crowd's gonna like you, we haven't had a super hero persona in the ring for a while! So I'll give you a shot. Just sign this itty bitty contract, and you're in. Zerdark silently signs the contract. "And we're done! Good. Now, just head on outside and one of our security guards'll show you to your new locker room. Someone'll explain how things work to ya, so don't worry your head none. Happy fightin'!"

Zerdark exits the office and Wheatley flies out of his hat. "I can't believe that worked!" "I can't believe I have to keep up a super hero persona, but it was the best way to get accepted. I can probably get away with only being in character in the ring from this point forward though." "So...we're really doing this, then? Because, uh...can't really see the point, if I'm honest." "I'll explain later when we're alone. Just trust me on this." The two are then escorted to the Minor League locker room by a security guard who gives them a brief overview of how things work. When all is done, Zerdark and Wheatley stand in the locker room surrounded by the other athletes, who look at the costume. A green Bandit speaks up. "So you're this 'Silver Shroud' character I heard about. So what's the deal? You some sorta hero? Tryin' to one-up ole Bandy Andy? I got news for ya, no hero's gonna compete with my master thief gig I got here!" "Cleftor no like hat guy." "Now now, we can afford to give the new guy a better welcome than that." A yellow-shelled Koopa walks up to the Silver Shro-Zerdark. That guy. "I'm King K, just another minor leaguer like you. Good meetin' ya man. You seem like a stand up dude. I think I can hang with you. Now maybe I can introduce the others properly, y'dig? This lean machine over here is Bandy Andy." "Heh. Nice to meet you I guess. I'm not in here too often, but gimmie a shout if you see me. Oh and I should mention, you can take a quick rest in the bed if you need it. It's not like the cushy bed in the Champ's room though, so don't get your hopes up." "Okay, and this guy in the corner is Master Crash." "Nice to meet you BOMB." "Yeah, my man's got speech issues. But have some patience with him, he's a good guy and has good advice. Sometimes. Anyway this last guy here with the sweet purple kicks is Cleftor." "Grack! Cleftor no want make friend with hat!" "Yeah, dude ain't the friendliest guy in the league, but you get used to him. Anyway, that's the core Minor League crew. Ya need something, just ask. Oh yeah...and you and me eventually gotta square off if you wanna climb through the ranks, so good luck man." "Well guess I should get started on that, huh? May as well put on a good performance while I'm here." Zerdark walks up to the console and contacts Grubba. "Well pardner, already fired up for yer first match? Well I got something easy here to get ya started. Ranked number twenty in The Glitz Pit, The Goomba Brothers! Now they ain't nothin' to worry about, you'll do great. Just play up that performance you gave me in my office. That stuff is GOLD! Alright, knock em dead! Not literally though, we ain't prepared to handle a scandal like that!"

A few minutes later, a costumed Zerdark heads up to the ring. "Aaaaand here they come, folks! In the red corner, we have a newcomer making his debut! Yep, give it up for The Silver Shroud!" "This ring is tainted with evil in the blue corner...I am the cure!" The crowd cheers while Zerdark thinks to himself. "(I can't believe this crap is working...)" "Them's fightin' words coming from The Shroud! Now let's meet his opponents! Give it up for The Goomba Brothers!" Five regular goombas hop up onto the ring. "Alright, get yerselves ready to...BAAAATTLE!" The bell rings and the Goombas all charge at The Silver Shroud at once. However, he swiftly dodges all of them. "The Silver Shroud cannot be felled by weak attacks like yours! Death comes for you! And I...am its shroud!" The Silver Shroud extends his arm and fires a blast of frigid air at the Goombas, freezing them in place. Still very much alive, but unable to fight. "HOO-wee! I think we've got ourselves a winner! Give it up for...The Silver Shroud!" The crowd cheers as The Shroud waves at the spectators. "(I still can't believe this shit is working...)"

Zerdark heads back to the locker rooms and is greeted by King K. "Hey man, I caught that last bout. The crowd's really eating up that hero act your pulling!" "Hey, thanks. Let's just see how long I can keep this up for." "I hope you can, the audience really eats that sort of thing up. The more people you draw in, the more money we all make. We all benefit, so thanks for spicing things up around here." "Hey, I may as well put on a good show while I'm here. By the way, where are the others at?" "Cleftor left for his match a while ago and Master Crash stepped out to get something to eat. I dunno about B-Dog though. Like he said earlier, he's not around here often. He just kinda wanders around the Pit. If you can find him though, he might have some interesting tidbits for you." "I might just go look for him then, thanks." "Anytime Double S Money." "...Please don't call me that."

Zerdark spends a few minutes wandering backstage only to hear a voice behind him. "So I hear you're lookin' for me." Zerdark turns around. "Heh, I knew it was only a matter of time. You want information? I can give you the skinny on all the things goin' down here. So whaddya wanna know?" "So you deal in rumors then? What do you know about the disappearance of Prince Mush?" "Oh man! You're here for that? That's some real vintage info there. I might be willing to divulge what I know, but...not here. The walls have ears y'see. Meet me behind the WaBucks in fifteen minutes." "Understood."

Zerdark heads there immediately. After fifteen minutes, sure enough, Bandy Andy arrives. "Woah, you got here before me! You're serious, ain't cha? "This case interests me, and I pursue my interests relentlessly." "Case? You mean that Silver Shroud getup ain't just for the show or somethin'? You some sort of hero or private investigator?" "...I guess you could say something like that. Though this case merely piqued my curiosity. I'm not working for anybody if that's what you're asking." "Hmm...well if you wanna know, here's the scoop. Prince Mush, the first champ. He's on top of the world, right? Nothing can touch him. Lots of adoring fans, bringing in big money for the Pit. Then up and outta nowhere, the guy just disappears without a trace. No note sayin he's callin' it quits, and he ain't the type to just leave without sayin' goodbye either. We all knew him, nice kid. Really sentimental too. Always talkin' about how much this place meant to him and stuff. So there's no way he just disappeared on his own free will, no matter what the police reports say. You wanna know what I think? I think someone set poor ole Mush up. Made him disappear. Now I ain't naming names, but it was awfully convenient for the guy right behind Mush in the roster..." "Rawk Hawk..." "Hey you said it, not me. Still, the benefits are undeniable. He shoots up to the Championship in an instant and gets all the glory for nothin'. Of course, there ain't no proof he did anything. In fact, no evidence of anything ever surfaced. Reeeeeal suspicious if you ask me." "Quite...no evidence? If foul play is at work here, we're definitely dealing with one crafty and dangerous individual. Hawk's the only one with a clear motive, but nothing came up, right?" "If you ask me, I think people were paid off." "Truly?" "Of course. Money makes the world go round, man! Ever hear the old saying? Money talks-" "And bullshit walks." "Exactly. Throw enough coins at the right people, they'll make your problems go away. I don't like to bite the hand that feeds me so I don't go sayin' this openly, but I think someone high up paid people off. To keep things quiet. Make the investigations go unnaturally smooth-like." "The management definitely would benefit from keeping a tight lid on this kind of scandal..." "Exactly. Mark my words, management's not to be trusted. There's somethin' fishy going on around here and management's too lax about it. Wanna know why I slip away? I've been making my own investigations. I got contacts. I get info. But nothin' conclusive so far." "Maybe we should work together? We both clearly want to solve this mystery." "Heh, I figured you'd suggest somethin' like that. Tell you what. If I find out anything else, I'll let you know. You let me know if you find anything too, k?" "Got it." "Good. See ya back inside, Shroud."

Zerdark decides to head back inside and register for another match. Using the console in the locker room, he contacts Grubba. "Heya there, son. All ready for another match? Alright, you'll be going up against The KP Koopas! Now listen son, just like before you'll be going up against a team. Only these guys are no pushovers like them goombas. No one's gonna wanna see The Shroud take a beating, so try not to get too badly injured in the next match. Let's keep this hero train of yours on track, okay? Knock em dead!" The console shuts off and King K walks over to Zerdark. "Looks like we'll be squaring off in the ring next. Good luck out there, man." A security guard walks in. "Hey, match has been set. Get to the ring." "Well, let's give them a show."

At the ring, Grubba's there with a full crowd. "Who's ready to see some action?! We've got a good show planned for ya today. In the blue corner, we have the Shell Machines of Doom! Yep, a fight to the finish with the KP Koopas!" Three yellow-shelled Koopas walk into the ring, King K among them as the leader. "And in the red corner, fresh from his victory over the Goomba Brothers in his debut battle...The Silver Shroud!" Zerdark slowly walks into the arena, taking in the cheers of the audience. "Yo Shroud, meet my peeps! I told you we were gonna have to square off, now don't hold back!" "You dare suggest that I would hold back against an opponent? Justice has come for you and your cronies on this day, and I am its shroud!" "Looks like our fighters are ready to go, so let's get ready to...BAAAAATTLE!"

The bell rings and one of the Koopas immediately retreats into his shell. It begins to spin in place quickly before it launches at The Shroud, who swiftly dodges out of the way. The Shroud then jumps toward one of the other Koopas and delivers a sharp uppercut, knocking him out. King K meanwhile runs up to the Shroud, attempting to deliver a sneak attack, but he performs a sweeping kick that knocks King K to the ground. "Many have attempted to sneak up on The Shroud to no avail! The shadows are my domain and you cannot hope to turn them against me. But I can turn your strength against you!" The Shroud grabs hold of one of King K's legs and spins him around, eventually throwing him into the first Koopa that attacked him. After a relatively longer fight than the last, The Shroud stands victorious over a pile of three knocked out Koopas. "He's done it again, folks! We have our winner! Give it up for The Silver Shroud!" The crowd's cheering intensifies as The Shroud himself speaks. "The Shroud has bested this villainous trio, but he's not finished just yet. I will not rest until I've completley purged this place of its evil inhabitants! (In a way, I'm not lying on this one...)"

Back at the locker room, Zerdark is paid for his performance and is approached by Bandy Andy. "Hey, I caught your last match. Not too shabby there, rookie." "I may be new to show-fighting, but I've been handling myself out there for a long time. By the way, you think K's gonna be alright?" "Yeah, don't worry about it. He's been through worse in the ring. He'll be back in a couple hours with a smile on his face. Speakin' of worse in the ring, you'll be going against my team next! Sorry to say your little winnin' steak's gonna end here." "Hmph, I wouldn't count on it. I expect you'll put up a good fight though." "Oh you can count on that. Until then though I'ma step outside. I got 'things' to do. See ya later Shroud."
