What’s wrong with all you lunatics?
YOU ALL BLASPHEME!
We follow the one true prophet.
Our champion was unjustly defeated
by a bloviating fraud.
You are both stupid as dog turds.
It’s just a game.
I do love a good riot, however.
We’ve got to get out of here.
You will be judged for your
This is the best tournament ever!!
Help! Somebody help!
I’m...bleeding? I just want to go
All that’s happening is the true
champion fulfilling the Prophecy.
Which...Prophecy... Which one,
which one do I choose?
Uh...is this normal?
I have never seen everyone charge
the arena before. Look, the stands
are almost all empty at this point.
(Laughing) But, that dark
cloud?...I... I don’t like this...
It’s a sign!!!! For the chosen
I see him.
Well...he’s dead...he landed on his

This is all wrong. Where is
SQUIRE OF ZELENNE
No champion but ZELENNE! We are
nothing without the Prophecy...
...This dagger stands as proof of
our Prophecy’s testament.
SQUIRE OF ZELENNE (CONT'D)
No man, no matter his skills in
combat, will thwart the will of
what has been written. And, so It
No...No, It can’t be...PLEASE!!
It can’t be!! No...no...I just saw
you... you were...
You...You were just...You were
You...you’ve killed our squire...
What? No, I...how...?
He must be...He is the One...
Isten has Risen!
HE IS THE ONE!
Yes...Yes, I hear It Karras. I
don’t care. I want nothing more to
do with that tournament.
But... but you can’t, you can’t
just sit here all night.
It doesn’t matter, Karras. I just
want to be left alone.
How can you say that!!!!
Hal, he could not have been dead!!
Look at him!!
YOU SAW HIM! Stabbed, impaled,
penetrated. Outside object on the
inside! Inside objects on the
So what are you saying?! Eh?!
Well he certainly looks like he’s
got the crowd’s attention.
SHUT YOU GOB! Where is Vorlauf?
Alright “Halbert”, you need to calm
down. Why don’t you go punch
someone in the face? That always
makes you feel better...or getting
punched, I never remember which.
You have been told to shut your
Look, I’m just saying, we met
Isten, right? He’s a Fribble. He’s
a squirmy, lying, cheating,
Ooooo, nice word.
...little rat muffin. Would you
really put It past him to pull
something like this to be “The
Chosen One?” Come on.
Okay...that’s a good point.
If this were magic A) there’s no
chance Vorlauf wouldn’t detect It
with his... what ever he has. And
B) I mean... SOMEONE else would
dictate It to right? .
Who are you? “Duplicitous?”
Arguments I can get behind? I’m
liking this Ann.
That was a ‘ad hominem’ compliment,
I’m not sure It works like that,
but, if this new Ann says It, then
I accept It!
WHAT DID YOU JUST CALL ME?!
Look! All the other champions!!
...they...they all got up...
I don’t think this is a trick...
WHERE IS VORLAUF?!
I’m sorry. I don’t like what’s
Me neither. I’m as much of a
monster as every Vigile I’ve sworn
to protect my people from. What
kind of protector am I? I’m an
No! Isten is an imposter.
I’m a worst kind. The kind that
didn’t even know they were one...
Isten is the kind that is also a
pile of horse droppings.
Yeah...You have a point there...

somehow won the stupid thing. Can

Yes! Yes! He is dumb!
In his way, yes, very dumb.
At least someone is enjoying
themselves...It sounds like
someone’s been chosen.
We should look for Ora and Kevin.
They’ll find us.
What about the loud boomings?
Even more reason to stay put.
Hey, let us see who won!
Karras, I really don’t...
I told Kevin I would try and get
you to the tournament to cheer you
What? Why did you do that?!
I wanted to cheer you up...
I know, but...
Alright, let’s go find Ora and
Kevin. It’s been longer then I
would have expected It to be
Don’t get too excited. The moment
we have Kevin and Ora back we are
YES YES YES YES!!!
Move! Excuse me. Move, move. Move.
Oh great Zelenne! I knew It! It was
you! You were brought back for you
are the Chosen One!
Oh what will you have us do?!
Master? Oh master, please forgive
Your might was never questioned.
He is whole once more!!
UGHH..... Mas... master...?...Why?!
I don’t see Vorlauf down there, do
Linus will find him.
I still think this is some trick.
Really? Well it’s a damn good trick
Do you find It a little strange
that we are still sitting here
watching? Everyone else seemed to
have the foresight to run away...
It seems like the safest place. All
the Risers are down there...
killing everyone. Vorlauf knows we
are here if he’s looking for us.
Plus, this is the best goddamn
tournament I’ve ever seen. I
mean...the guy won, got
backstabbed, then returned and won
again. If that guy isn’t the
prophet then I’d almost say these
Prophecies were all bullshit.
It is bullshit, Hal.
Oh, come now! Isn’t It more fun to
believe It? That’s a hell of a
You don’t believe this shit!
If you did you would be wigging out
Yeah...I guess you’re right. But
I’d love to be--
Did you find him?!
Ugh. Never even a little helpful,
Honestly, man, can you not just be
useful for a bloody moment?
Still think it’s a trick?
What do we do?
I THOUGHT I ALREADY HAD!!!
AAA UGH! Everything...everything is
getting back up. Nothing dead...is
staying dead! Not just the
tournament people. Once they kill
someone, that person gets up!
Pull It together! Let’s go, follow
NO! We can’t go that way. The
stadium doors are funnels to get
We gotta’ find Vorlauf!
We have to jump the wall into the
forest. I don’t think there’s
another way out.
Don't be stupid. How do you expect
us to get back in, huh?!
I THINK THEY HAVE BIGGER ISSUES
THEN TO KEEP US OUT, YOU TOADTONGUED
WASTE OF SPACE!!!
Come on, this way...
Help us!! Please help us.
The prophet raises the dead! He is
punishing us for not believing!
Kill him again! It will stop the
Kill him again!
No! I am the Chosen One! I am here
to protect... This is the doing
We must...We must not run!
Run you fool!
We must not fight! He will protect
us if we believe!
No!! I am...
DEAD LUSUS NATURAE

Ora...Ora... wait...I can’t...I
Sorry. We can rest for a minute,
but we’ve gotta’ find Formosa and
I know...I know.
So, so what happened back there?
Did that guy recognize you?
Yes. From both the bar and the
fight with Godrick’s family.
He has a very twisted view of the
world, let’s just say that.
Well, don’t worry, looks like you
took him out.
I...I don’t know what happened?
Ha. You beat the essence out of him
is what happened.
No. No, I didn’t. Something else
happened, you heard the explosion!
It was not me! I mean...at least I
did not mean to...I think?
What? What are you talking about?
I DON’T KNOW!! All I know is that
Vorlauf was about to kill me and
then, somehow, a blast saved me. I
didn’t “DO” anything and there was
no one around.
It was...It was just like...magic?
wisp that Formosa sent was
protecting you. That could be,
He...He killed It. Without even a
Well, there ya’ go! She said that
they are magic and you shouldn’t
kill them, right. Maybe It explodes
when you do or something! Maybe the
forest sent an exploding bird or
something. Who knows... I don’t
think It was you.
Maybe...but that would have been
really good timing. It was more
like...like when Godrick and I...
DEAD LUSUS NATURAE
That does not sound good.
No, It does not. We can worry about
things later. We’ve got to go find
Formosa and Karras.
Great Isten! Help us. Make It stop!
I did not do this! But I...
...would not concern yourself with
why at the moment!
It all started with you!!
You rose and then you rose everyone
else! You are The One!
I can take care of these over here.
And why should I not concern myself
Because we are all going to die!
Make It stop!!
There! Over there! A break!
Don’t leave us!
Where are you go....AAAAAA!
NOO!! You coward! Stand and fight
Run, you simple fools!
DEAD LUSUS NATURAE
Isten! Over here! I know what to
do! There’s a way out!
Where?! Where do you see It?!
Over here! Come back to us!
Yes, over here!!!
I don’t see anything.
What is...? UGH...
It started with you. It must end
with you. It must! It has to end!
Demons of Hell!! Your leader is
dead!! Return there!! PLEASE LEAVE
AAAAAH! What...how...where is your

is of the dead!

Oh no....everything killed becomes

What makes you think he’s here? He
could have gone anywhere.
The flash of light.
I don’t know what that means.
Ignore It. It’s a bunch of Malarky.
That first flash of light we saw
during the fighting. If It was
magic, Vorlauf would have headed
for It. I think It was in this
See? Utter horse shit.
Fine. What do you suggest?
VORLAUF. IT’S ME, HAL. YOUR BEST
Would you shut up?!
At least I’m trying!
Ughhh, yes! Shut up!
What happened here?
Glad you’re safe, Vorlauf!
I found you! See, Ann? My calls
What about them?
Ugh.... Move... Damn
Where is she?
Ann’s right there, Vorlauf. Damn,
you really musta’ taken some licks.
I was one breath away from ending
that girl who I’ve now met three
And she took the Prophecies? Who
She did, but that’s not my concern.
What did she do? It’s not like you
to lose a fight.
Someone or something saved her.
Did you see who It was?
Because they used magic.
You don’t think it’s the same...
Can’t be sure. But, we have a job
to do now, don’t we, now?
The first thing I’m gonna do when I
see Ora is hug her.
Great plan. But, we gotta move fast
because I don’t know what’s
happening at the arena, but--
DEAD LUSUS NATURAE
Hey, I...I thought that thing died.
