The Day of Chaos - 2
"What do you think are the odds of surviving this journey?"
"Well, there are evil androids that can cause
mass destruction, four leaders of this evil corporation that have 'your going
to die' written all over their faces, Dr. Sloth and his mutant minions, a mad
scientist that really should have pasted away a long time ago, and chaotic weapons
that will disintegrate any person in seconds. In short, I would have to say
that we are all doomed for all eternity," said Bain.
"Can you stop complaining about how your going
to die in here? Is being devoured by evil beasts not good enough for you?" asked
"When I die, I want to die in style!" said Canken.
"Feel free to panic at anytime you want," said
"I will keep it in mind," said Gin. At the end
of the hallway, we discovered another door leading up a staircase. After the
long climb to the top, we finally emerged into the next room. It was another
hallway and we repeated the process. When we reached the other end, we entered
once again. It was an empty round room made of metal. There stood, on the middle
platform, three shadowy figures. When I was finally able to make out what they
looked like I noticed something familiar about them. Magnus the Torch, Flaming
Meerca, and someone who was suppose to be dead. Anaconda!
"What took you so long?" asked the mutant Grarrl.
"How are you still alive?" I asked.
"My special ability is faking death," said Anaconda.
"It comes in handy sometimes. Shall we get started. I will explain the rules."
"Is this a game?" asked Canken. The floor in
the middle disappeared leaving a small path outlining the room and one more
path of floor leading straight across with a platform in the middle. Below the
platform was the third floor field which disappeared revealing the second floor
field. The rest of the fields disappeared. At the bottom was a pit of lava.
"Since you seem so interested you will go first,"
said Anaconda. "The rules are simple. You will receive a baton and a weight
will be attached to your leg. In order for one of you to pass through us you
will have to defeat one of us in a duel. You will be going against me this time
and probably for your last time."
"How do we win?" asked Canken.
"One of the opponents have to fall off the edge,"
said Anaconda. "These other two are being paid to do this."
"Let the match begin," announced Magnus the Torch
as he threw them batons and Flaming Meerca attached weights to their legs. Canken
and Anaconda started battling. They kept striking, but kept blocking themselves
after every attack. Canken started to look tired and lost balance after Anaconda
hit him in the side. He was holding on by his legs. "You will have to wait until
he gets back up," said Magnus.
"I am not going to wait!" said Anaconda as he
hit Canken in the leg with his baton. The starry Scorchio held on for his life,
but lost his grip and started to fall.
"Fly!" I yelled. Canken started flying, but kept
falling downward at a slow pace, because of the weights. All of a sudden, two
Cobrall Daggers appeared on the wall.
"I've got you!" said a man who was standing on
them. It was the Dark Ninja again. The daggers fell out of the wall and the
Dark Ninja disappeared into thin air along with Canken.
"Where did they go?" asked Anaconda. The starry
Scorchio appeared on the other side next to Magnus the Torch. The Dark Ninja
appeared in front of Anaconda.
"Now you are going to have to deal with me!"
said the Dark Ninja as he drew out one of his swords.
"If it is a fight you want you will have to wait
your turn," said Anaconda.
"What are you talking about? This is my turn!"
said the Dark Ninja as he jumped into the air. Anaconda broke the chains that
held the weights and they dropped into the lava pool. The mutant Grarrl jumped
off and landed on a secret platform that opened from the wall below the top
platform. The passage was sealed. "Are you going to let us through or am I going
to have to fight you?" asked the Dark Ninja. The Flaming Meerca attacked him,
but he dodged it and hit the Meerca with the handle of his sword. The Flaming
"I am not getting paid enough to do this!" said
Magnus the Torch as he jumped into the lava. The door at the other end opened.
"Well, are you going or not?" asked the Dark
Ninja as he disappeared again.
Come on! You heard him!" I said.
The next part of the hallway had doors covering
the walls on all sides. A gray Shoyru emerged from one door to the next one
across from it. Then he disappeared. Seconds later, he reappeared and all the
doors opened. Out walked about ten guards from each door.
I think that we have found where the soldiers
sleep," said Bain.
"Should we start running now?" asked Canken.
"Well, we could always let them beat the stuffing
out of us instead," said Gin as I took out my Shoyru Battle Sabre that I received
from Slasher and attacked one of the guards. He fainted.
"There is no way that we can defeat all of them!"
said Bain. We ran back into the last room we were in. The floor had been closed.
Then, I noticed a small panel with a screen next to it. The guards started to
enter the room. I approached the screen. It said "enter password!"
"Great! Now we're doomed!" I said. All the guards
were gathered up in front of us now.
"That is why you have me!" said a voice. All
of a sudden, a green Shoyru appeared in front of the panel. He typed in something
and pressed enter.
"Access approved!" said the screen as a sign
saying "Warning: Opening..." appeared.
"Barry!" I said in excitement as I recognized
him. The floor started opening again and the guards were trapped. Most of them
started to fall in. Once the floor was open, there was about ten guards left
along with Chameleon standing at the doorway. Bain rammed into the last ten
guards and they fell in.
"You have become trickier than before. I am surprised,
but you will never make it to King Cobra," said Chameleon as he disappeared.
"So I see that you got into a file you weren't
suppose to get into," I said.
"Sure did! BurnDragonX is on the next floor,"
said Prototype_Barry. The five of us went to the next floor and walked to the
middle of the building. In the middle was a stone with ancient carvings on it.
We start examining the stone.
"You would be surprised to know what kind of
power that stone really has," said a voice. We turned around to find Viper standing
there with a new staff. "This staff is called the Staff of Evil Souls. It has
twice the power as the Staff of Lost Souls. Everything is the same except there
is no monster to summon as it has already been released," said Viper.
"Viper, your an evil witch!" said Bain. The Shadow
"I am glad you remembered me," said Viper as
she attacked him. "Taste the power of 'Rain of Terror!'"
"Get out of the way!" I yelled.
"There is no where to run from this attack!"
said Viper as a dark wave of energy formed around Bain and exploded. He fainted.
"Now for the Devastation Wave!" said Viper as
wave of flames hit Canken. He fainted, too.
"How can that attack defeat the defence representative
with one hit?" I asked.
"The stone triples my power!" said Viper.
"We will have to destroy it then!" I said.
"It won't work! The stone is too powerful," said
Viper as she launched another attack and hit Barry. He fainted and I took out
my Shoyru Battle Sabre. I attempted to attack her, but something held me back.
"You won't be able to defeat me with the stone
around," said Viper. All of a sudden, there was a flash behind Viper and the
Dark Ninja appeared. He raised his sword and quickly pulled it downward. Viper
fell to the ground in pain.
"Her weak point is her back," said the Dark Ninja
as he disappeared. I attacked her when she got up and she fell over again. Once
again she quickly got up and dodged my next attack.
"You will pay for that!" said Viper. "'Spirit
of Evil' emerge from your hiding place and take your pick of bodies."
"What are you doing?" I asked as the Usul started
to chant. The staff lit up and a shadow flew out of it. The shadow disappeared
into Bain's body and he stood up.
"Destroy him!" commanded Viper. Bain attacked
me, but I dodged it and hit him in the head with the handle of my sword. He
fainted and the shadow emerged. I used a light attack on the evil being and
he disappeared. "Restore!" said Viper. The shadow reappeared.
It must be the stone that helps it regenerate.
Viper doesn't look as if she has even been attacked. Yes, it must be the stone,
"Give in to my power and I might let you live,"
said Viper. I drew my sword and attacked the stone. It split in half and turned
to dust. "No way! Dr. Livingston was the only one who knew the weak spot," said
"Well, I was just guessing. Looks like you are
out of luck," I said. The shadow disappeared and her shield of energy deactivated.
I attacked her with my blade. Viper, the Shadow Usul, was finally defeated.
She dropped to the floor and disappeared. "I wonder where she went," I said.
She left her staff behind. The problem was that it was made of dark magic.
"So, I am guessing you are going to think about
that all day," Gin said five minutes later.
"I haven't figured that out yet," I said.
We rested for a couple hours and then continued
our journey when the others had awoken. The next part of the hallway had three
doors in it. Gin, Canken, and I went into the one to the left. Bain and Barry
went into the right one. The third door at the end of the hallway was probably
another stairway. It seemed that we had picked the right door once we saw what
was in the room.
"Another dungeon. Well, aren't we lucky? I guess
an evil villain's base can never have enough dungeons," complained Gin.
"Actually, this is just what we have been looking
for. BurnDragonX should be in here," I said. We started searching for a mutant
Lupe. Once again, there were soldiers captured and put in cells. "Wait, these
are our soldiers!" I said. "How did they get our soldiers in here so fast?"
"They must had brought them in from the roof,"
said Gin. Just then, I saw him. BurnDragonX was sitting in a cell at the far
end of the dungeon. I approached him and he looked up at me.
"How do I get this cell open?" I asked. There
was no response. "Maybe the keys that Commander Garoo had will work on these
cells too," I said. I put the key in the lock and turned it around. There was
a click and the door opened. "Need any help?" I asked. There was still no response.
Instead he lunged at me in a frenzy of rage.
"He sure seems glad to see you too," said Gin.
He attacked BurnDragonX and the mutant Lupe got off of me. He stood still in
"There is something wrong with his eyes!" said
Canken. I looked at his eyes to find that they were completely white.
"It's a trap!" I said. Ransackian soldiers and
mutant minions started entering the room. There were about twenty of them. I
attacked a Ransackian soldier and he fainted.
"We will take care of the soldiers. You go play
with BurnDragonX!" said Gin. I attacked BurnDragonX with my Shoyru Battle Sabre
and made a direct hit. He used Shroud and I used Night Vision. With another
attack with my sword the mutant Lupe was defeated.
"That didn't take too long," I said. Gin and
Canken were finished fighting. "Those were the weakest soldiers I have ever
fought," I said.
"Forget those weaklings! We need to find that
wimp, King Cobra," said Gin as he started to unlock all the cells. When he had
finished Gin, BurnDragonX, Canken, and I returned to the hallway where we found
Barry and Bain waiting for us.
"No luck," said Bain. "It was just a laboratory."
"That is probably where Dexter experiments on
Neopets and other creatures," said Barry. We continued to the next door to find
another stairway. After we reached the next floor there was another hallway
with nothing in it. We entered the door at the other side and went up another
stairway which took us up to the middle of the roof of the building.
"I thought you would never make it," said a voice.
All six of us turned around at once to find a mutant Krawk and about one hundred
soldiers. Ten of them fell over in a straight line. Behind the line appeared
the Dark Ninja with his sword drawn.
"Who is this clown?" asked Bain.
"The mutant Krawk is named Diamond Back," said
BurnDragonX. The Dark Ninja disappeared again.
"This would be so much easier if I had my Lost
Desert Daggers," I said. Barry took out a Faerie Slingshot and the rest of our
allies drew their own weapons. BurnDragonX didn't have any equipment and I only
had one weapon to choose from. I drew my sword and attacked one of the soldiers.
Everyone else attacked the small army of men at once. The second row fell and
the third row attacked us. When we were attacked by the last row Barry fainted.
We attacked back and all of the soldiers were defeated except one. Diamond Back
attacked me with his staff. I dodged it.
"It is called the Ancient Staff of Onyan. Your
lucky I can't find my sword," said Diamond Back.
"That is a weird name for a weapon," said Canken.
The mutant Krawk started chanting and a ball of explosive energy appeared in
front of the staff. He launched the attack and it hit Canken. The Starry Scorchio
fainted as he flew ten feet backwards barely hanging over the edge of the building.
"Anymore stupid comments?" asked Diamond Back.
Bain charged toward the mutant Krawk. He started chanting again and attacked
with a wave of electricity. Diamond Back launched his wave at Bain and he fainted.
"Scatter!" I commanded. The mutant Krawk produced
multiple attacks and we dodged them.
"Stand still and accept your fate," said Diamond
Back as he randomly fired in every direction.
"What's the matter? Can't you shoot me?" I asked.
"You have really bad aim!" said BurnDragonX.
"I will show you bad aim!" said Diamond Back.
"My petpet can shoot better than you!" said Gin.
The mutant Krawk was really mad now.
"Why won't you die?" yelled Diamond Back.
"Go back to using a Rainbow Gun!" said Gin.
"Die!" yelled Diamond Back in a frenzy of anger.
A huge wave of energy appeared in front of the staff and was about to attack
us with what would surely doom us all when a dark figure appeared behind the
mutant Krawk. The Dark Ninja squeezed his shoulder and he fainted. The Shadow
Techo disappeared and the attack exploded on it's creator. The explosion sent
us flying backwards off the building, but we grabbed onto the edge just in time.
When the smoke cleared, all three of us pulled ourselves back up.
"Dr. Livingston, are you there?" I asked. There
was no response.
After everyone was healed, we entered the elevator
on the roof. On the control panel, I noticed a button that had the letter "B"
on it. Canken pressed it and the elevator descended through the shaft below.
A minute later, the door opened.
"This must be the basement," said Canken. We
entered the room. It was a dark room that stretched about four yards in distance.
Then something rose from the shadows.
"Finally we meet! I have been waiting for you,"
said a voice as a body appeared. It was a Desert Shoyru with two items. One
of them looked very familiar. Next to him appeared Dr. Sloth and Chameleon.
Behind him appeared Brainiac, Experiment, and a Draconian Shoyru. "I would like
to introduce myself. I am King Cobra, leader of Ransack. I am also aware that
you have met Dr. Sloth and Chameleon, too," said the Desert Shoyru. "Some modifications
have been made to the three behind us. Brainiac is now Mastermind, Experiment
is now Experimental, and I would like for you to meet Android_Barry."
"My first experiment wasn't called Prototype_Barry
for nothing," said Sloth. "I was very disappointed when Prototype_Barry turned
"You are just in time for Ransack's most important
event in the history of Neopia," said Cobra. Chameleon approached him with a
familiar scroll and started chanting. I also noticed that the grey Shoyru was
holding the Staff of Evil Souls. In Cobra's hand appeared a stone. He made the
items touch on both sides of the rock and they disappeared. On top of the rock
appeared another item.
"Wait, that is the stone that Chameleon stole
from us!" I said. "From what I have heard in the past would help concluded that
the stone was meant to merge the two Chaos weapons together. That must mean
that it is the Stone of Revival."
"Very good!" said Cobra. "You have destroyed
half of my army and I am prepared to do anything to get rid of you. We will
finally see who is the most superior."
