DO YOU HAVE A PROPHECY

KEVIN

Why would we break in to the

competitors’ side of the arena?

ORA

If we go through the audience

entrance, we won’t be able to get

to Isten.

KEVIN

Alight. Let’s say we do somehow go

over this huge wall or sneak past

the guarded gate and manage to find

Isten. What are you gonna’ say to

him? ‘Why did you steal the

Prophecies? Why are you a lying

liar?’

ORA

More or less.

KEVIN

Ugh!

ORA

We need to find him and get the

Prophecies back. It sounds like,

they only have to prove they have

one, not turn It in

And...I want to know why he did any

of this. It can’t be all about

money.

KEVIN

Can’t It?

KARRAS

Isten needs me. I need to get in.

FORMOSA

Perhaps our answer is over there.

KEVIN

Is that Jonathan and his friends

from the caravan?

ORA

How did we beat them here?

FORMOSA

They must have spent last night in

Dawnwallow and only now checking in

to the tournament.

ORA

Maybe... maybe he would be willing

to add some companions!

ORA (CONT'D)

Jonathan! It’s good to see you!

JONATHAN

Nora!! How are you?

ORA

It’s...Ora.

JONATHAN

Ora... right... thats uhhh... Wow,

I’m lucky I remember my own name

after last night.

TARESA

The pub we went to found out

Jonathan was competing and offered

free drinks. Probably thought they

could affect the odds by having a

hung-over participant, but Jonathan

here has a stomach of steel.

ANCELIN

Ugh. If only we all did.

ORA

Jonathan, we were wondering if you

could include us in your crew. You

know, bring us with you into the

fighters’ side of the arena.

TARESA

Ah, so you didn’t have two

prophecies.

ORA

They’ve been temporarily misplaced.

JONATHAN

Well, you seem like nice folks, but

I don’t know you all well enough to

vouch for you.

ORA

Well...How about just me? I’ll go.

KARRAS

No. I’ll go.

ORA

Karras, I need to get in there and

talk to Isten.

KARRAS

I need to talk to Isten.

ORA

Look, I know you’re close to him,

but he stole from me! I need to

find him!

KARRAS

You’ve been with him a few days;

I’ve been there a year. I need to

find him.

JONATHAN

Ummm...look...

ORA

No! We can figure this out in a

minute.

KARRAS

No! If you leave, you may take no

one.

KEVIN

If It makes anyone feel better, I’m

fine with not finding Isten.

KARRAS

We fight to decide.

ORA

I’m fine with that. I beat you

once, I can beat you again.

KARRAS

But I couldn’t use my bow then.

JONATHAN

HEY! Hey. No fighting! They ban

people for fighting outside the

tournament.

TARESA

Though I would bet money on The big

man.

ANCELIN

What odds? I’m thinking Ora stands

a better chance, she seems faster.

JONATHAN

Enough! I’m not gonna’ take either

of you. If I bring you in I take

responsibility for ya’ and neither

of ya’ are worth me getting

disqualified.

ORA

But...

JONATHAN

You are not gonna’ to find anyone

willing to take strangers in to

their care. You have nothing to

offer! Now, get out of our way.

KARRAS

(Grunts.)

ORA

Fine.

TARESA

Good luck to you all, nice seeing

you again.

ANCELIN

Best of... Ugh...oh....I think - I

think I’m going to throw up.

TARESA

Aww. Let’s get you some bread.

ORA

Ugh. Why did you do that?!

KARRAS

(Grunts.)

ORA

We might have been able to get in!

KEVIN

Whoa, whoa, Ora...

ORA

What?!

KEVIN

It’s been a long day, let’s not...

ORA

Oh, great! Now where are you

going?!

GARION

Whoa! Whoa.

Out of the way, you crazed dalcop!

GARION’S MAN 1

Stand aside! He who stands in the

way of the Chosen One shall

move...or be moved!

KARRAS

Take me on your team.

GARION AND HIS MEN

(Laugh)

GARION’S MAN 2

We said out of the way, big man!

GARION

I don’t know you friend. And don’t

much care too. (Chuckles)

KARRAS

Catch.

GARION

Stones?(Chuckles) Hardly seems a

fitting gift.

GARION AND HIS MEN

(Laugh)

KARRAS

Throw them up. Throw them up in the

air.

GARION’S MAN 1

We’ve no time for this.

KARRAS

Throw them.

GARION

Well, you heard the dalcop. Alright

men, on 3. 1, 2, 3.

GARION’S MAN 1

Mother of light!

KEVIN

HOLY BOLDER OF ROCKS! Did you see

what he just did.

GARION’S MAN 2

I ain’t never seen a man move so

fast...

GARION’S MAN 1

Much less a man his size...

GARION

That’s not bad, not bad at all.

Never hurts to have a big man

around as a deterrent...but uh...

can I trust you?

KARRAS

I can heal your horse.

GARION’S MAN 2

Mine?

There’s nothing wrong with my

horse.

KARRAS

He is limping.

GARION

Just a bit, he twisted his ankle is

all. It will heal.

KARRAS

Wrong.

GARION’S MAN 2

What that?

KARRAS

You are wrong.

GARION’S MAN 2

Say that one more time. The Chosen

One is never wrong.

KARRAS

(grunts)

GARION’S MAN 2

‘Ey! Get away from ‘im, he don’t

like people touching his...

KARRAS

You were wrong.

GARION

Yes...Looks like I was.

GARION’S MAN 1

The Chosen One...

GARION

Oh, drop the Chosen One crap!

(to Karras)

I’m impressed. You can join me, on

this condition: while you don’t

strike me as the trouble making

type, you cause a single problem in

there and you wont live long enough

to cause another. Understood?

KARRAS

(Grunts.)

GARION

Alright then. Let’s go.

GARION’S MAN 2

Lead the way, Boy-o!

GARION

Oh, and what was your name?

KEVIN

Karras!

KARRAS

It’s Karras.

KEVIN

Karras!

GARION’S MAN 2

Do you know them?

KEVIN

Karras! ho ho ho. That was amazing!

I can’t believe It, I mean oh...

Like oh...I knew you were...

KARRAS

Ugh!

KEVIN

Oof. Hey, what was that?

KARRAS

We just met.

ORA

Where are you going?

GARION’S MAN 1

Out of the way of the Chosen One,

spectator!

ORA

What?!

KARRAS

He said out of the way!

BIRD

Caw caw.

ORA

Ewww... UGH.

GARION AND HIS MEN

(Laugh)

GARION

I think that bird likes you. It

suits you well.

GARION AND HIS MEN

(Laugh)

FORMOSA

Are you Okay?

ORA

Yeah.

KEVIN

I always heard It was lucky to get

pooped on by a bird.

ORA

Well It doesn’t feel lucky!

I think we were just abandoned...

KEVIN

I noticed that too.

FORMOSA

Well...What should we do now?

ORA

We still need to get in.

FORMOSA

We should find a place for Spirit

before we try again. The three of

us may be able to sneak in, but It

will be harder with a horse.

ORA

I think I saw a stable just outside

town. Hopefully we have enough gold

for them to house her.

FORMOSA

Gold? It won’t be that expensive.

KEVIN

Are you sure? It cost us everything

we had the last time we stabled

her.

ORA

Well... we told them how much we

had...

KEVIN

Then we conveniently had just

enough...oh...

FORMOSA

I’ll take Spirit and get her

settled at the stable. You two come

up with a strategy to get us

inside.

KEVIN

So, any ideas?

ORA

If the Gatekeeper simply understood

our situation, he’d have to let us

through.

KEVIN

Sure. Thats the Gatekeepers oath...

“I swear to protect this town...

unless I really pity the people...

ORA

Alright. What’s your bright idea?

KEVIN

Bribery?

ORA

Eh. We don’t have that much money.

Oh, we could throw sand in his eyes

and make a run for It.

KEVIN

Well then the five other guards

would come after us. Not the

mention the other fighters.

ORA

I wonder how high are these walls?

KEVIN

Look, you can read and write, why

not write out our own Prophecy?

It’s not like It has to be

consistent.

ORA

Parchment and ink would be more

expensive than bribery.

HOLFRED

Make way! Make way for Lyanora!

Defender of the weak and the weapon

of justice! She who shall remake

this terrible world into a thing of

beauty!

KEVIN

Is that how you’d have announced

Isten?

ORA

More like, “He who sings terrible

songs and refuses to set up camp.”

HOLFRED

You two! You are unworthy to gaze

upon Lyanora. Bow. Bow to the

Chosen One!

LYANORA

Holfred, do not make presumptions.

All are worthy as children of this

forsaken land.

There is no need to bow.

KEVIN

I wasn’t going to bow anyways.

(MORE)

LYANORA

I see you both carry swords. A

noble weapon, though I prefer my

spear. One day, It shall pierce

through the very heart of our

miseries and the black blood of

sorrow will flow out of this land.

HOLFRED

You are so wise, Chosen One.

LYANORA

Are either of you sword-wielders

competing?

Or perhaps you have joined with

some false One who proclaims their

own divinity.

ORA

Well...We’re not fighting in the

tournament, if that’s what you

mean.

KEVIN

And what’s this about divinity?

LYANORA

Ah, you’re spectators. Are you

believers, here to seek the Chosen

One?

KEVIN

You could say that.

ORA

Yes, but we are still seeking a

champion.

LYANORA

Very well. If you can, watch my

bouts closely. May my acts of

valiance open your eyes and hearts

to my claim.

ORA

Wait! I need to get through that

gate. Could I join you?

LYANORA

Seeking to be part of my faithful

without having faith.

LYANORA (CONT'D)

I appreciate your spirit, my child,

truly - and earlier in our journey

I might have embraced you as we

traveled along the road of life,

but alas...now is not that time.

ORA

So no?

LYANORA

Be well. Live fully and without

compromise.

Remember to watch for me in the

arena; may my deeds sway your

hearts!

HOLFRED

Be honored that Lyanora deigned to

speak to you. To be in her presence

is to know more warmth than even

the sun can provide.

KEVIN

Well, that was interesting.

ORA

Maybe if we keep asking competitors

if we can join, one will agree.

KEVIN

Or maybe-

ORA

Oh, hello there! I was wondering if

you needed another person to

help...

KEVIN

For Light’s sake.

SCENE BRAKE

FORMOSA

I boarded Spirit.

ORA

...but if you’ll just hear me out,

I think you’ll realize how valuable

I can be.

FORMOSA

I take It you weren’t able to get

in.

KEVIN

She’s decided joining a group is

the way to go.

FORMOSA

Well, she’s certainly enthusiastic.

I’ve been puzzled by why you stay

with her. You’re not a believer and

you criticize almost all her ideas.

You don’t seem to be looking for

fame and fortune...

KEVIN

I wouldn’t turn down fortune.

FORMOSA

But you’re not looking for It.

KEVIN

What? She’s a friend! Isn’t that

reason enough? Besides, she

promised she’d teach me how to

fight. And where else am I going to

go?

FORMOSA

You are no stranger to the forest.

You could...

KEVIN

(yelling)

Hey Ora! Over here!

ORA

Formosa, welcome back! Good timing,

too, I heard that the tournament is

going to start after lunch, which

means we don’t have much time to

get to Isten.

KEVIN

I take It you didn’t have luck

getting us into a participant’s

party.

ORA

Can you believe most people ignored

me?

KEVIN

Yes.

FORMOSA

Time is pressing. What’s the plan?

Do you want to keep asking to join

a group?

ORA

No. It’s not working. We have to

try something new.

KEVIN

Oh! I have an idea: I’ll seduce the

FIGHTER SIDE GATEKEEPER.

I take It from your expressions

that you’re not thrilled with the

idea. But if a few kind words can

get us through, then it’s worth a

try.

ORA

Wow...we are really reaching the

bottom of the barrel...

KEVIN

Look, are you willing to do

anything to get in there?

ORA

Yes.

KEVIN

Don’t worry, just follow my lead.

FIGHTER SIDE GATEKEEPER

You again? Did ya’ get a Prophecy?

KEVIN

Wow. It must be tough to have to

stand out in the sun all day

looking after all these uh... These

amateurs. Am I right? Especially

for someone as tall and strong as

yourself. You look like you’re

someone who knows their way around

a sword. I bet you’d probably win

the entire tournament if you

competed...

FIGHTER SIDE GATEKEEPER

I repeat, did you, get a Prophecy?

KEVIN

But not you, no, you’re so noble!

To think only of othersFIGHTER

SIDE GATEKEEPER

No Prophecy. No entrance.

ORA

Oh well, Umm...you seem

so...ummm...handsome? Won’t you

just... ha...-

FIGHTER SIDE GATEKEEPER

No.

KEVIN

Hey, Flirt!

FORMOSA

You, are not hideous.

FIGHTER SIDE GATEKEEPER

Please.

KEVIN

(smokey voiced)

If you let us through, you can have

a beer with any of us you choose...

Or...all of us???

FIGHTER SIDE GATEKEEPER

(Laughing)

I’m going to need more than beer to

forget the lot of you.

KEVIN

Okay wait wait. Maybe this will

change your mind about letting us

in? Hu, Hu? Think of It as a bag

full of tiny Prophecies written on

silver coins.

FIGHTER SIDE GATEKEEPER

Ha haha. You’d need five times that

amount for me to let ONE of you

through, much less the lot of you.

Move along.

ORA

Do we have five times that amount?

KEVIN

We don’t even have twice that

amount.

ORA

Looks like another opportunity’s

just arriving.

(MORE)

FORMOSA

Hmmm. A covered wagon. Probably

bringing in supplies.

ORA

If we could just get inside...

FORMOSA

It will have to stop while they

admit that group to the arena. And

with so many people, they’ll block

the Gatekeepers view of the

wagon...

KEVIN

This seems like a bad-

ORA

It’s now or never! Quick!!

KEVIN

Ugh...

FORMOSA

I don’t think the driver heard us.

ORA

We need to hide in case they

inspect the wagon.

KEVIN

Where? There is nothing but crates

in here, there’s not even space toto

get behind them.

WAGON DRIVER

(from outside)

Woah, there. Woah.

ORA

Shit! Just try!

WAGON DRIVER

(from outside)

Hello there, sir. Always a

pleasure. Another load of supplies

for the tourney here.

FIGHTER SIDE GATEKEEPER

Sure, sure. Let’s just have a quick

looksee...

Seriously?

FIGHTER SIDE GATEKEEPER (CONT'D)

I can see you, you’re all in plain

sight! All three of you get out!

And if you try to get past me

again, I’ll have you all arrested.

WAGON DRIVER

What’s going on back there?

FIGHTER SIDE GATEKEEPER

No, Just a few stowaways. You’re

cleared to proceed.

WAGON DRIVER

What is the world coming to,

Heya!

ORA

Well...we could pick a wagon that

has stuff we can hide under...

KEVIN

They’ll be on the lookout now.

FORMOSA

Well, any other ideas?

ORA

How high would you say these walls

are?

SCENE BRAKE

FORMOSA

Here. I found some rope. Now what?

ORA

Oh. Great, throw It over that

branch.

FORMOSA

Ugh!

KEVIN

I still think we should get further

away from the gate.

FORMOSA

Ugh!

ORA

If we go too far, we might end up

climbing over to the spectator’s

side. Besides, we’re out of sight

so we should be fine.

FORMOSA

Ugh! Got It.

ORA

Great.

I’ll go first and then you follow

me.

Oh no.

Ah! Oof

FORMOSA

Look out! The branch!

ORA

What happened?

FORMOSA

I don’t know...the branch was thick

and healthy...It should have held.

ORA

Okay, backup plan. Climb the wall.

KEVIN

I love your confidence, but...

ORA

When Formosa and I reach the top,

we’ll secure the rope and you can

climb up. We can even pull you up

if we have to.

KEVIN

Okay, now that’s just insulting.

ORA

Kevin, you’re the look out. I doubt

you’ll see anyone out here, but

we’ll be completely exposed while

we’re on the wall.

KEVIN

I still don’t know why...

ORA

Ready?

FORMOSA

Ready.

I’m impressed. I didn’t think you’d

climb so well without a rope.

ORA

There are cliffs about two hours

out from my home. Godrick and I

used to climb them all the time.

Sometimes, we even raced.

FORMOSA

Are you proposing a race?

ORA

I am now!

KEVIN

Caw! Caw caw!

Hey! Hey! Hey!!

FORMOSA

Sounds like we’re going to get

company

GUARD

You there!!

FORMOSA

Hurry.

GUARD

All of you! Stop right there!!

KEVIN

I’m gonna’ run for It. I’ll find

you after!

ORA

Kevin!

GUARD

Stop!

FORMOSA

(to Ora)

Hurry! We can meet up with him

later.

GUARD TWO

Come down! Now!!

FORMOSA

But we won’t get the chance if

we’re imprisoned!

FIGHTER SIDE GATEKEEPER

Oh good, when I heard there were

idiots trying to climb the wall I

was hoping It would be you.

ORA

Ignore him.

FIGHTER SIDE GATEKEEPER

If you don’t come down, I’ll have

to kill you. If you do come down,

I’ll only throw you in prison.

ORA

He’s bluffing.

FIGHTER SIDE GATEKEEPER

Oh am I?

Archer, if you please.

FORMOSA

By her stance, she’s experienced.

She won’t miss, not at this range.

ORA

Fine!

We’re coming down!

FIGHTER SIDE GATEKEEPER

Congratulations, you’re officially

arrested.

FORMOSA

Get off of me.

ORA

Don’t worry, Kevin got away. He’ll

be able to help us.

GUARD

Ugh! Here’s the one who ran off.

KEVIN

Oh. Hi, Ora.

ORA

Damn It.
