THE TERRAN TERROR

KEVIN

I don’t get It. Why would anyone

fight those things? That one had

wings... WINGS!

ORA

I have no idea, these people are

crazy. I hope everyone drops out.

But Formosa, you were...

KARRAS

Amazing...

ORA

Formosa?

DRUNK FAIR GOER 1

Oh, OH. Is that her?!

DRUNK FAIR GOER 2

HA HA! It’s got to be! She’s even

bigger than she looked.

KARRAS

Ugh.

DRUNK FAIR GOER 1

Excuse me! Miss! Miss...uh... Miss

Terran? Miss Terran hey. HEY!

I just want to say, I need to say,

you are incredible. You’re

incredible!

DRUNK FAIR GOER 2

Oh yes. Yes you were. You, come

here, I you... Come here, you

were...I mean, we come here every

tournament. Every tournament.

ORA

Every one?

DRUNK FAIR GOER 1

It’s a, it’s hilarious! All these

freaks and their “We found The One”

bull shit. (Laughs)

DRUNK FAIR GOER 2

(Laughing)

The last night. The last night is

the best.

DRUNK FAIR GOER 1

Oh yeah.

DRUNK FAIR GOER 2

Everybody fights, everybody's

punching, and we just sit on, we

just throw horse shit at them.

DRUNK FAIR GOER 1

Yeah!!1 Thats what we do. Oh yeah.

KEVIN

How very decent of you.

DRUNK FAIR GOER 1

Oh, come on! Come on. You guys

don't follow this Prophecy stuff,

right? No way! You’re here to get

picked.

LITTLE GIRL

Mommy look its the tall lady!

ORA

What do you want?

DRUNK FAIR GOER 1

Oh, I’m sorry! I’m sorry. We’re

rambling.

LITTLE GIRL

Come on mommy hurry!

DRUNK FAIR GOER 1

I don’t want to throw off your

fight or nothing.

GIRLS MOMMY

Alright, alright.

We just wanted to say you were so

good and if, if we were prophet

followers, we would follow you.

DRUNK FAIR GOER 2

I mean, It would have been better

if you had-a killed your, ah, your

opponent.

DRUNK FAIR GOER 1

Well, yeah, but haha, you know....

FORMOSA

Huhgn!

DRUNK FAIR GOER 1

Ugh!!

LITTLE GIRL

Hehe, I like her a lot.

DRUNK FAIR GOER 2

Hey, Whoa! What’s your, what’s your

problem?!

KARRAS

Grrrrr.

DRUNK FAIR GOER 1

Terr....Terran dung!

ORA

You should go...and quickly.

KEVIN

They say don’t meet your heroes.

DRUNK FAIR GOER 2

Let’s go, lots go get a drink.

GIRLS MOMMY

Comon, let, lets go

ORA

Formosa?

LITTLE GIRL

Bye tall lady!

ORA

Formosa, are you Okay?

FORMOSA

Ugh!

KEVIN

Well, we did It. The Prophecy is

with the others. Now we just have

to find It, right?

KARRAS

Shhh...

KEVIN

Sorry...

ORA

Formosa, you know you don’t have to

fight the currupted, right?

KEVIN

No one doubts that you could beat

It, but...

FORMOSA

HUU!!!BE QUIET! BE QUIET! BE

QUIET!! BE QUIET!! BE QUIET

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!

They were the ones.UGH!

There was no reason UGH.

It was all for a game! WHY?! UGH.

What is wrong with you people?!

KEVIN

Us?!

FORMOSA

You people living in towns and

villages. Destroying everything

whether you need to or not! They

laughed. I saw them Laughing as

they watched the Naturae kill

people. Kill children. And they

made It happen.

ORA

But you can’t blame us for that.

FORMOSA

OH YES I CAN!!

But I don’t....

I blame myself.

ORA

What? This isn’t your fault.

FORMOSA

My father....he was right. My whole

life we were taught to respect the

world. That we’re just travelers in

nature’s home. And the Naturae are

just that...part of nature. We

defended ourselves when

needed...but only when needed.

KARRAS

That’s good...

FORMOSA

My father always said to respect

nature, but that those monsters

were not nature. They were

something else. These were created

out of the evil of man. To wipe

them out would be to save nature.

Looking at what I have seen...he

was right. And I never believed

him.

KARRAS

Humm...

FORMOSA

What...what is this? What’s

happening?

ORA

(Chuckles)

I think it’s a hug.

KEVIN

Believe me, you get used to It.

ORA

Look, we don’t have to be here any

more. We can get the Prophecies and

leave before anyone knows It. You

don't have to see those things any

more.

FORMOSA

No. Those things destroyed my

family and I will destroy them.

KARRAS

No, you don’t have to...

FORMOSA

Yes I do. I won’t allow them to

exist. They destroyed my life and

the lives of thousands throughout

time. I will avenge everyone who

has ever come face-to-face with

them. I was always taught peace was

the way, and It destroyed

everything!

ORA

But there is another way! If we get

the Prophecies then...

FORMOSA

Then what? Why is your quest better

than mine?!

ORA

They are the same thing! You could

go fight one of those things and

maybe you kill It. Then what? There

are maybe hundreds more...and

that’s if you don't get killed!

FORMOSA

And I will take them with me!

ORA

Or we can follow the Prophesies and

maybe restore the world. If we find

the Chosen One, maybe all the Lusus

Naturae will go away. Maybe all the

Vigiles will go away. Maybe we can

have our lives back. Too many

people we know have died. I don’t

want It to be one more.

FORMOSA

I won’t stop...

KEVIN

Ahhh!

ISTEN

You won’t what? Win? No kidding. Or

were you going to say something

else? Liiiiike, “I won’t be friends

with Kevin any more?” ‘Cause that

would be a good plan too.

KEVIN

No one asked you to be here. You

should leave!

ISTEN

Careful, with your stupid words

little man...

KEVIN

I’m not scared of you.

ISTEN

Those are words that you may have

to back up.

ORA

What do you want, Isten?

ISTEN

I just wanted to come congratulate

the talk-of-the-town here.

Everyone’s talking about “the

Terran terror.” It even

overshadowed me...in some circles.

I think you might even have some

converts. They think you’re The

One! (Laughs) Which is hilarious...

KEVIN

And why is that hilarious, you

Crocodile rectum?

ISTEN

Quiet, the adults are talking.

However, looking at you, It looks

like the contest is getting to you.

Hey, why do Terra make awful

fighters? Huh? Huh? Anyone? Because

every time they step on a blade of

grass they have to stop and

apologize. (Laughs)

Nothing? Really? I guess you heard

It before.

KEVIN

For someone who claims to be The

One, you sure are a big pile of

dung.

ORA

Really, Kevin?

KEVIN

What? He started It!

ISTEN

Well, I don’t want to over-stay my

welcome.

ORA

Too late.

ISTEN

I wanted to come and congratulate a

fellow fighter...as well as Karras.

KARRAS

M-Me?

KEVIN

Don’t listen to him, it’s a trick.

ISTEN

Yes, I wanted to congratulate you

on being exactly what I always knew

you to be. You didn’t sell the

Prophecy? And you didn’t fight? I

always had to take care of things

myself.

KEVIN

You never did anything yourself!

ISTEN

Is that right? Ha! How’s Spirit

doing, anyway?!

ORA

What does that mean?

ISTEN

(laughs)

Oh Karras, you really lived up to

every expectation I had of you

being a complete waste of space.

And do you take up a lot of It.

FORMOSA

Get out.

ISTEN

Oh, I will. It brings me no joy to

spend time in the presence of such

people.

ISTEN (CONT'D)

Oh, but before I go, I thought I

heard - and I’m sure I was

completely wrong - the idea for you

not to fight?

ORA

So?

ISTEN

Well, I’m sure that would do

wonders for your fans. You would

walk away a legend. The one who

would not kill.

FORMOSA

Great...

ISTEN

You know...It would be a shame to

never have fought you and shown

everyone how It looks when you are

knocked off your pedestal. That is,

if you lived through the next

round.

FORMOSA

If I were to face you, I would be

throwing away the name of “the one

who did not kill,” believe me. But

I don’t fight for your enjoyment.

ISTEN

That’s very true. Meh, too bad. I

was just talking with a few

travelers that I ran into on the

road about you. They will be so

disappointed. Come to think of It,

they were very interested in my two

Prophecies and where I got them.

KEVIN

You stole them! That’s where!

ISTEN

Yes I did. I’m ashamed of myself.

Actually, the travelers I met were

Vigiles, maybe I should go turn

myself in to them right now...of

course, they would want to know who

I stole them from. They said that

someone had stolen one from a bar

in Shadow Run. They were hoping to

run in to them again.

ORA

What did they look like?

ISTEN

Well, if my conscious gets the

better of me maybe I’ll turn myself

in, and then you can be sure I will

point them right to you so they can

let you know justice has been

served. Good night.

KEVIN

Well...that was...

ORA

...and what was his crack about

Spirit?

KARRAS

(crying)

FORMOSA

Karras?

KARRAS

I’m sorry.

KEVIN

Okay, that’s It! Next time I see

that guy I’m going to push him into

a pile of horse shit.

ORA

Karras, you know all that stuff he

said was just him trying to get to

you.

KARRAS

Yeah well, It worked...

KEVIN

None of It was true. You know if

you were a waste of space and fat,

I would be the first one to tell

you.

KARRAS

(crying)

It was my fault.

FORMOSA

What was...?

KARRAS

I did not stop Isten. I knew his

plan and I did not stop him.

ORA

What plan?

KARRAS

The only reason Isten let you

travel with us was to get your

Prophecies.

KEVIN

I wish I could say I’m surprised.

ORA

Shut up, Kevin.

KARRAS

(crying)

But, I would not help him. He

wanted me to steal them, or to

distract you. But, I

refused...I’m... I’m not bad...I’m

not bad.

ORA

See, you did nothing wrong. You

didn’t help him.

FORMOSA

But he didn’t stop him.

KARRAS

(balling)

KEVIN

Hey, look, you can’t blame yourself

for that walking pile of frog guts.

KARRAS

But Imogen...

ORA

Oh no...

KARRAS

I knew what he was up to when we

stopped. In the hilt of his sword

is a gem, inside the gem is the

blood of a yellow wisp.

FORMOSA

What... The blood of a wisp?!

How... how is he still...? How did

he manage It?!

KARRAS

Thomas. He traveled with us. He was

a little slow. Isten had him catch

that wisp.

ORA

Why is this such a big deal? What

does a yellow wisp do?

FORMOSA

Each wisp represents a different

element, and a yellow wisp

represents wisps. They are an

element all in themselves.

ORA

Oh, so It can tell when other wisps

are around, like the blue one goes

to water.

FORMOSA

...who taught you about wisps...?

ORA

Isten took me to a wisp’s wheel...

KEVIN

Really? Why did you not tell me

this?

ORA

You know about wisps?

KEVIN

I have heard about them I’v never

seen one for myself.

ORA

Yes you have, that thing that made

Spirit bolt? That was a wisp. And

also the reason I did not have a

chance to tell you. You were a

little busy hanging on for dear

life.

KEVIN

Ya’ know, one day you’re not going

to have a good excuse for something

and BAM! Point for Kevin.

ORA

Uh, Sure.

KEVIN

But that thing was a wisp? It was

like...all black...

KARRAS

It was captured. They lose their

light after a while when they are

confined. But, it’s the blood of a

wisp that glows and sings. If you

remove It from a wisp and imbue a

gem, It will last the life of the

stone. The blood is what makes the

gem glow.

KEVIN

So the one he gave to me...

KARRAS

Was used up as far as he was

concerned.

ORA

Oh, that’s why he had me catch one?

To replace...

FORMOSA

You did what?!

KARRAS

He used the one he gave Kevin to

make Spirit bolt.

KEVIN AND ORA

What?!

FORMOSA

Horses know, wisps are nothing to

trifle with.

ORA

What do you mean?

KEVIN

This is why you keep having things

happen to you in the forest.

ORA

What are you talking about?

KARRAS

I’m so sorry.

FORMOSA

A wisp is part of the forest, It is

nothing but kindness and light and

beauty. It represents goodness.

When you capture It, the forest

takes its revenge.

KEVIN

The falling down, the branches

breaking, all the random bad

luck...it’s not random. The forest

is angry!

ORA

How do you know this stuff?

KEVIN

What? Oh, just stories. I thought

It was all fake but... ya know...

moving dancing forests...

ORA

Oh, so the forest just stays pissed

at me?

FORMOSA

But the stone... to catch a wisp is

one thing. Ora, you have seen what

the forest does. But to take the

blood - to kill that part of the

forest - how is Isten alive?

KARRAS

Thomas did not know better...Isten

convinced him he was doing

something great.

KEVIN

What happened to Thomas?

KARRAS

(crying)

A day later he went for water and

we never saw him again.

ORA

The forest killed him?

Karras. Isten fooled all of us.

KARRAS

(Grunts.) Yeah... Yeah..,

KEVIN

It’s true.

I mean, you know... I never thought

he was The One, and never trusted

him, and no one believed me but,

Ow...

But I never thought he would do

anything like this. He got me to do

his dirty work without me even

knowing It.

KARRAS

So... so you’re not mad at me?

ORA

Nah, that’s too much work, and you

know how lazy Kevin is.

KEVIN

Hey! If I wasn't so tired I would

be offended by that.

ORA AND KEVIN

(laugh)

KARRAS

(laugh)

You are my best friends now. You

are my best friends!

ORA

Oh, Okay big guy.

KEVIN

I think I liked the crying better.

ORA

Alight, now the important things,

what do we do?

FORMOSA

Tomorrow morning, I fight the

monster and I kill It.

KEVIN

Is...No one going to argue that?

ORA

I would... but I don't see another

way. If she doesn’t, Isten will

tell those Vigiles where we are. We

could run...

FORMOSA

No, we don’t run. Even if we were

not threatened, I would stay and

kill the monster. They are a

violent curse on nature.

ORA

But, it’s so dangerous.

KEVIN

Karras? Thoughts?

KARRAS

I am worried for the Lusus Naturae.

Did you see Formosa fight? I am not

scared for her at all.

KEVIN

Well...I guess that was easy.

ORA

Easy...right...

FORMOSA

Hey, and the good news is you

already know how to follow the

marked Prophecy.

ORA

I do?

FORMOSA

I marked It with a wisp.

KARRAS

Where did you get that from?

FORMOSA

In a place like this, you can find

anything.

KEVIN

Oh great!! Now the whole forest is

just going to uproot itself and

come after us.

FORMOSA

Not so much. The Terra are close

with the forest, we know how to ask

It for favors when we need to, and

not just take them.

ORA

Well...I guess that’s all good...

but, umm....I’m a little... not

scared but...ya’ know...I’m worried

about pissing off the forest

more...I’m already bruised up.

KARRAS

Well... what if you make It up to

this wisp?

KEVIN

I can’t tell if that’s brilliant or

stupid...

FORMOSA

He’s right.

KEVIN

Brilliant is It.

FORMOSA

You have to do something selfless

and kind in order for the forest to

forgive you.

ORA

And releasing a wisp is doing that?

KEVIN

Oh. That’s not too big of an ask.

ORA

I’m a little uneasy about that. I

made It angry by accident, I’m not

that sure if I should fix--

FORMOSA

At the very least it’s a start.

You’ll have to wait till night so

as not to been seen, and to see the

glowing more easily...

ORA

Okay...I think we have a plan...

KEVIN

Well...good, I guess...

KARRAS

Come on, all! We are together, It

is a happy night!!

FORMOSA

You know what! You are right!

KEVIN

Look at this guy, cheering everyone

up. He's like a big fluffy ball of

fun.

ORA

(Laughing)

Well, let’s get some sleep cause

tomorrow’s going to be a very, very

long day.

KEVIN

There is one more issue actually

that we need to deal with.

Formosa...

FORMOSA

Me? What about me?

KEVIN

Well it’s just...you know...Formosa

smashed my bed...

ORA

Ohhh, right! uhhh, I already solved

that.

KEVIN

Really? How?

ORA

I solved It for me. Your bed your

problem.

KEVIN

What?

ORA

Good night, everyone.

FORMOSA

Good night.

KARRAS

Good NIGHT, friends!

KEVIN

Hummm... That’s about right....

SCENE BRAKE

ANN

How ya doing there, buddy? Here,

have some bread.

LINUS

Ugh, I don't think I can.

ANN

You going to vomit again?

LINUS

Ugh, I don’t think so. I don’t

think that I have anything left.

HAL

Amateur. Serves you right for

trying to out-drink the fighters.

LINUS

I don't know how Isten is going to

fight today. He's got to be feeling

worse then I do.

ANN

I doubt It. He was giving away most

of the drinks when you weren’t

looking. Why do you think the whole

bar was on your side? The more you

drank, the more they drank for

free.

LINUS

That NO GOOD....ohhhh nooooo I

should not yell...someone just chop

off my head.

ANN

You’ll be fine after you eat. The

veterans around here call this

bread the fixer. They are no

stranger to bad mornings, believe

me.

VORLAUF

Sit up strait, for hope’s sake.

HAL

He's not feeling great this

morning.

VORLAUF

I don’t care, there are eyes

everywhere and we are

representatives.

LINUS

Yes, sorry, of course.

VORLAUF

Eat your bread and pull yourself

together.

ANN

So, what’s the morning news?

VORLAUF

There are seven left.

HAL

ONLY SEVEN!!

VORLAUF

Eight got picked up from other

crews, four dropped out due to

fear, and apparently one ran off in

the middle of the night.

HAL

Coward.

LINUS

Why? I can’t blame them too much

for dropping out.

VORLAUF

If you drop out people tend to have

an opinion.

HAL

If you get picked up by a crew most

people understand that, and if they

don't...well, you are usually good

enough that they leave you alone

anyway.

ANN

If you drop because you’re

scared...not so much. They tend to

have to put up with a lot of

heckling, but will still get

honored at the end of the

tournament festivities. If you run

away...you can’t handle anything,

and should never show your face

again.

LINUS

I’ll be interested to see who’s

still in.

HAL

Anyone you’re looking at specific,

Vorlauf?

VORLAUF

I don’t know yet...but I have this

feeling that something is going on

here...and I don’t know what.

what we all want. That’s what we

all deserve. Justice.

SOLDIER

Alright, let’s go!

Here’s your spear.

FORMOSA

I have my axe, I don't need It.

SOLDIER

Ha. Look, take the spear. You need

all the help you can get. Take my

advice, and the advice of the

catchers. The moment that gate

opens, take your shot. You only get

one. The more damage you can do

before It gets close to you the

better. They told me to tell

everyone that. The first guy, hit

its head, second guy hit its

side...you decide what’s better. I

couldn’t care less.

KEVIN

They...didn’t take the other ones

away? They just leave the bodies?

SOLDIER

You ever try and move one of those

things. Now you three wait here,

only fighters in the ring.
