OOC: Awesome ending, everyone! Even if I wasn't here to join in. This truly has been one of the most awesome and long running RPGs I have ever played in. Congradulations, Parugi, you finally finished it. See you all in the next Parugi Production!IC / Searcher Chasm / With everybody:Swerv looked at Draxion, who just stared, slack jawed, at the mask of night. He went over patted the Rahkshi’s shoulder, “Kovian promised you a new one.”Draxion gave him a silly lop-sided grin, “Ehjoras is safe, that’s what matters right now.”“Uh… ha,” Swerv said, stooping to pick up the two halves of the mask, “I’ll see what I can make these hunks of metal into for you.”Swerv laughed, “At least the Brotherhood isn’t kicking us off the island like last time.”Draxion’s face went slack and he stared at the ground. Then he looked up at Swerv, “Older Brother.”Swerv shook his head, “Nothing that snake can throw at us could possibly be worse than what we just went through. Besides, Vronx is here to keep him in check.”Draxion frowned, “Hopefully.” The frown quickly disappeared, how could it not? They were both alive. Everyone was alive! What more could an augmented Rahkshi ask for? “We sure do have a knack for finding un-killable friends.”Swerv nodded, looking at the large group gathered. There were so many beings here, like the Vortixx and Turaga standing off the side awfully close to Unpredictable. So many friends and helpful acquaintances. “Yes,” the robot said to Draxion, “We sure do.”IC / Citadel / With Waiter:“No, I can hear you just fine.“What?”“Yeah, interference from all the crazy energy that is just bouncing around everywhere.”Brother paced, fine tuning his communicator, “What about now? Ah, good.”“Yes, this island is ripe for the taking. Prime real estate. The whole island is basically destroyed. Now is the time to buy.”“What?”“Yes, of course I’m taking everything I can of the factions that have been dismembered.”“No, right in the center, a destroyed citadel with an excellent basement.”“Well, obviously the townsfolk would object, but they’re either dead or hiding in the hills.”Brother stopped pacing to look at what was left in the Citadel. Big, bold words had been branded onto the building. They read: Property of Endless Boundaries. In fact, several buildings around had the same brand on them.“Oh, no, all the papers are gone. We have squatter’s rights, even if it is because no one else is here at the moment.”“Yeah, but just wait; I hear there is an even deeper basement. Remember Dreamland?”“Yes, my memory did finally recover. Dumb side-effects.”“Oh, the Toa of Iron,” Brother grinned evilly and looked at the Toa’s slumped form, which he had dumped on the street at his feet, “He’s no problem. I am a scientist, and that annoyance is brain dead. I’m surprised he’s still breathing.”“The Director attacked him mentally or something. In defending, Mr. ‘Waiter’ probably did more damage than if he had just accepted the Director’s control. Stupid Toa.”“What? Yes I’m sure. He’s as far gone as that second batch out of Shifting Sands. Remember them? I was certain a few of them would have made it out with some sort of brain function. Oh well.“Are the construction crews on their way?”“Good. We have no time to waste. Talk to you once I get things rolling here.”Brother shut off his communicator and looked down the street, reaching inside his cloak and activating a homing beacon. Seconds later, heavy machinery began to appear outside what had just recently been KNPD HQ. And it continued to appear. There was a lot of opportunity in this broken land.As the machines started up, Brother grinned, hissing in delight. He gave Waiter a good kick in the ribs, just to top off this awesome moment. Lyxek was probably alive out there, and Brother hadn’t nabbed any keys, but he had gotten what his ulterior motive had been all along. Another island for Endless Boundaries to sink its teeth into.And the thing was, the masses thought they were a good company. In fact, all these machines cleaning up City would probably be welcomed by the populace. After all, Endless Boundaries was here to help. And own the entire island, but that would come in time.Brother was sure of it. Sure of it with another swift kick to Waiter’s bruised ribs. Life was sweet.
