You and your friends catch up to TTN as he enters the Collectables forum. You have to be careful following him, because the forum is not very busy. Collectables hasn’t been busy in years.
But TTN doesn’t linger by the half built huts, and presses forward through the forum. He walks to the far end, which has long been abandoned. No member ever ventures down that far into the forum. There is scary stuff back there, long forgotten, and the four of you hesitate.
But then Blue points out that if TTN really is hiding something, what a better place to hide it in? Biting back your fears, you press on.
As you move forward, it rises out of the forum. It’s a giant building, one you’ve never seen before. You see TTN enter through the main door of the building in the distance.
“I wonder what he’s doing in there,” Krahka wonders.
“I guess we’ll have to go check it out,” Sumiki says.
You sneak forward cautiously, taking care that you aren’t sighted. Instead of entering through the front doors, you sneak around and find an old service door, which you enter through.
Inside, you hear the sound of machinery running. You realize that it’s a giant factory. But what is it producing?
The four of you sneak forward and glance down into the main chamber, where the machines are running. You look down at a nearby conveyor belt and gasp. There are slimy slugs on it.
“He’s producing kraata!” Krahka whispers. You all know what kraata are; in the story, they are slugs made from the essence of a Makuta, and they control the Rahkshi. Furthermore, a kraata can be attached to a mask and infect it. Kraata in BZP-Koro could be used to control members against their will.
“So that’s how he’s doing it,” Blue says. “He’s using the kraata to take control over members. As soon as he’s built up a big enough following, he can storm the administration and take over BZP-Koro using force of numbers.”
“That’s the plan,” says a voice behind you. You all spin around and sight TTN standing behind you, with a wicked grin on his face.
“I had to remove the BZP Reports, who were starting to nose their way into my operation,” TTN says. “But I wasn’t expecting any members to get wind of this, like you did. But that’s okay, because I have a solution prepared, just for you.”
With startling speed, he throws four kraata at you. You duck down just in time, and the kraata thrown at you sails above your head. But your friends are not so quick; they each get hit in the face with a kraata. TTN begins laughing, not realizing that you haven’t been kraata’ed yet. But he’s soon to notice.
You may just have enough time to free one of your friends. But who?
