FIND THEM

KARRAS

Wait! You’re too fast!

FORMOSA

What happened?

KARRAS

What are those?

FORMOSA

I...I don’t...It’s a--

KARRAS

No!!

SPECTATOR #1

AAAAAAKARRAS

Oh no...He’s...he died... He’s dead

he died..

FORMOSA

Karras get back.

KARRAS

That grandstand is so talk. It’s as

tall as an old tree. There is no

way he could have survived that.

Why...Why did he do that?!

FORMOSA

I don’t know...

KARRAS

What is...?

FORMOSA

KARRAS! LOOK OUT!!

KARRAS

What is that?!

RISEN

(growl)

FORMOSA

Risen! Kill It!!

KARRAS

What did I do?!

FORMOSA

Karras! It’s Okay!

KARRAS

What did I do...

FORMOSA

Risen are the dead reanimated by

magic...I can only imagine that

what It was...it’s not your fault.

You saved us.

KARRAS

How...how do you know?

FORMOSA

I don’t, but like you said there

was no chance they could have

survived that fall. I’d heard

stories of them, when I was a

child. My father used to tell us

scary stories, stories he learned

from his father. We thought It was

all in fun...but...

KARRAS

What...What do we do...?

FORMOSA

Do you see Ora or Kevin anywhere?

KARRAS

No...I... No no I... But I don’t

know how I would see anything here.

FORMOSA

Damnit. I can’t tell where the wisp

went...and It does not seem to be

coming back.

This might be It, Karras.

KARRAS

It?

FORMOSA

We may be on our own.

KARRAS

Nuh-uh. Ora is brave, and Kevin

will keep her safe.

FORMOSA

Kevin? That’s nice of you, but...

KARRAS

He won’t let anything happen to

Ora. He’ll find us.

FORMOSA

Kevin can’t stop...

KARRAS

He is stronger then people think! I

know that!

FORMOSA

Alright...well, we’ve gotta get

someplace safe first.

FORMOSA (CONT'D)

Look! There! The watchtower by the

entrance where we came in! We can

be safe and look for them. We’ll

have a good view of the whole arena

from there.

SCENE BRAKE

ORA

Okay, we made It...See? There.

There’s the arena.

KEVIN

Great. Wonderful. I WIll take your

word for It. Just please...let me

rest.

ORA

Come on. We can’t rest, don’t you

hear all the fighting??? We gotta’

go show people the Prophecies.

Kevin

What? Why?! I thought... I thought

we were going to use them to figure

out what was really going on.

ORA

We are, but this proves that this

tournament is all fake!

KEVIN

They don’t care Ora. Lots of people

already think that!

(MORE)

ORA

They’ll care. Every one of these is

different! When they realize

whoever won is a fraud. They’ll

care because they’ve been tricked.

KEVIN

I don’t think so.

ORA

What makes you so sure?

KEVIN

Because being wrong publicly is

hard and when you can avoid It you

do.

ORA

What are you talking about?

Kevin

Nobody wants to be proven a fool...

especially in a big public way. And

if some jerk - you, in this

instance - comes along with a bunch

of “stuff” and “evidence” or

whatever--

ORA

Iron-clad proof.

KEVIN

Proof of what?!

ORA

That...well...that they might not

be the Chosen One! They might have

made up their Prophecy!

KEVIN

You see? Even you aren’t sure how

to feel. I mean, you show these

things to everyone and the response

probably won’t be, “Oh, you’re

right! We’re dumb! You’re smart!

KEVIN (CONT'D)

All better now!” It’ll be like,

“Bullshit, I’m still right and even

if I’m not you can’t disprove It to

my satisfaction so, really, all

you’re doing now is being difficult

and making me feel bad and I’d

rather feel good so a FIGHT TO THE

DEATH IS THE ONLY LOGICAL

SOLUTION!” So, ya’ know, that’s

why.

Ora is genuinely stumped.

ORA

But...that’s so...childish.

KEVIN

...I don’t know how to respond to

that without you hitting me.

ORA

Oh, shut up!

KEVIN

Ah. Well at least now you get It.

KEVIN (CONT'D)

If I have learned anything, it’s

that no one likes to be wrong and

everyone likes to say “I told you

so.” It’s power. Welcome to the

foundation of every issue that the

world has.

What do you think is going on over

there?

ORA

Oh no...

Kevin...

KEVIN

Okay, I’m getting up.

ORA

No! I mean, yes! Get behind that

cart!

KEVIN

What? Which one?

ORA

Grab the chest! Move!!

DEAD LUSUS NATURAE

(Roar)

KEVIN

Oh no!

CROWD

(yelling)

DEAD LUSUS NATURAE

(Roar)

ORA

That’s...that’s the Lusus Naturae

Formosa fought.

KEVIN

I...I saw It die.

ORA

Did I do this?

KEVIN

What? No! What?!

ORA

But, the explosion...magic...I did

magic! Maybe this is a side effect.

If I did magic, maybe the explosion

at Godrick’s...! Maybe I brought

that back by accident...

KEVIN

You are spiraling. Stop! Just

breath. Doesn’t matter at this

point, right? Things are coming

back to life, we need to find

Formosa and Karras.

ORA

OH NO!

KEVIN

Wait! I’ll help.

ORA

WE HAVE TO FIND THEM!!!

KEVIN

Damnit, Ora! Wait up! I’m coming!

ORA

Well, come on!

KEVIN

Where are we going?

ORA

Some place where we can be safe and

see what’s going on.

SCENE BRAKE

FORMOSA

Is the trap door open?

KARRAS

Yes.

KARRAS (CONT'D)

Do you see them? I don’t see them.

Do you see anyone?

FORMOSA

I don’t see them yet. Just a lot

of...slow movements...over there. I

think we’re safe up here unless

they find us. Then we are in

trouble, so let’s stay still.

KARRAS

Good plan.

FORMOSA

Shhhhh!!!!!

KARRAS

Sorry. Good plan.

FORMOSA

We don’t have a lot of time.

SCENE BRAKE

SPECTATOR #24

AAAA!!

RISEN

GURRAAAA!

SPECTATOR #24

HELP!!

ISTEN

UGH!!!

SPECTATOR #24

Some ‘Chosen One’ you turned out to

be.

ISTEN

Maybe if you’d refrained from

attacking me...

SPECTATOR #24

Oh for lands sake!----UGHGHHGHG

RISEN

(growl)

ISTEN

NOOO!

ISTEN (CONT'D)

See?!

DEAD SPETATOR #24

(Growl)

ISTEN

Oh, no!

I never wanted It to come to this.

SCENE BRAKE

KARRAS

I...I hear something.

FORMOSA

Shhhhh. Me too.

What is that?

(whispering)

Do you hear tha...?

Its the ladder! They’re here. We

can take them out one by one so

long as they come up through the

trap door.

KARRAS

Punch or stab?

FORMOSA

Pick your favorite.

SCENE BRAKE

CUT T

HAL

HAAA!!

ANN

AAAA. Where is she?!

VORLAUF

ARRRGHHHHH. Beast!

Ah-ha!

HAL

Ugh!!!

LINUS

Thanks...

HAL

Just keep your eyes open.

LINUS

I am! It’s just every time I take

one down, they get back up a minute

later.

ANN

You have to slow them down. Take

off a head or a leg!

Then they can’t get to you.

VORLAUF

Stabbing only seems to slow them

down momentarily, if you’re lucky.

HAL

Vorlauf, do you, do you see her?

How do you even know she’s here?!

VORLAUF

She has friends here. I know It.

Keep looking!

SCENE BRAKE

FORMOSA

When they come up, whack ‘em on the

head. Maybe we can take out a few.

KARRAS

Okay.

FORMOSA

If whoever’s down there doesn’t

come up in a minute, we’re gonna

have to meet those things on our

way out.

KARRAS

I hate them.

FORMOSA

Good. Good.

KEVIN

Ugh... AAAAAAA oof...

FORMOSA

Kevin!

KARRAS

Kevin?

ORA

Kevin?!

FORMOSA

Ora?!

KARRAS

Ora!

ORA

Formosa?

KEVIN

Ooooo.....awww. It’s... It’s just

so... so good to see everybody.

KARRAS

Kevin!

KEVIN

Carl...

KARRAS

No. Karras!

KEVIN

Isn’t that what I said?

Ora

Karras take this!

FORMOSA

You should have said who you were.

ORA

We didn’t know you were there. Here

Kevin, let me help you.

KEVIN

AAHHH! Watch the leg...ugh!

KARRAS

We were trying to be quiet.

KEVIN

Next time that we don’t know if

what’s on the other side of the

door will kill us we will all yell

out our names. How’s that?

KARRAS

I am sorry, Kevin!

KEVIN

It’s alright...you can make It up

to me when I get up there.

KARRAS

How?!

KEVIN

Just don’t hug me.

KARRAS

DEAL!

FORMOSA

Shhhhh.

KARRAS

Deal.

FORMOSA

Karras, see if anyone else is

coming.

Are those...?

ORA

Yes, every single Prophecy from the

tournament, this year and looks

like previous years maybe too.

KARRAS

Good!

FORMOSA

How’d you get away?

ORA

Well, I...I don’t really...

KARRAS

Look...It’s Isten!

ORA

That’s not Isten, it’s just a dead

guy. They’re all undead now,

Karras.

FORMOSA

Are you sure?

KARRAS

That looks like Isten.

KEVIN

I don’t know, he would have been

right in the center of--

ISTEN

Karras!

KEVIN

Well...there goes our silver

lining. It’s Isten.

ISTEN

Karras! You made It!!

KARRAS

You are being too loud!!!

ISTEN

I’m coming!

ORA

Oh, come on! He’s bringing them all

right to us!

FORMOSA

They’re headed this way. We have to

get out of here.

ORA

Where are we going?

FORMOSA

I dunno’. But, we are not sticking

around here to see how many we can

fight off.

KEVIN

Soooo, back down?

ORA

Back down.

FORMOSA

I’ll go first. Karras, bring the

chest.

KARRAS

Got It.

KEVIN

Ora, you go first...it’s going to take me a moment.

ORA

Okay! See you down there.

How does It look?

FORMOSA

Well...Let’s find out.

KEVIN

What’s the plan?

FORMOSA

We are going to have to run...

ORA

Everyone ready?

KARRAS

(grunts)

KEVIN

Uh-hu...

ORA

On your call, Formosa.

ISTEN

It’s you!

EVERYONE

(Screams)

KEVIN

WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT?!

KARRAS

SHHHHHHHH!!

ISTEN

(Laughing)

I’m so glad to see you!

ORA

It’s not mutual!

FORMOSA

We must go...NOW!!!!

ISTEN

Wait. Karras, I’m coming with you.

I know I...

KARRAS

No! Ugh!

ISTEN

Oooff....

SCENE BRAKE

VORLAUF

(grunting)

KEVIN

WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT?!

VORLAUF

The tower...

There you are...

RISEN

(Growl)

ANN

Vorlauf!

HAL

Where are you--?

VORLAUF

It’s her!!

SCENE BRAKE

ORA

Kevin. Doing alright?

KEVIN

It’s getting better. Don’t think

any lasting damage. Just going to

take me a-a minute.

ORA

Where are we going?

FORMOSA

There’s the houses of the people

who actually live here. Real walls

at the very least.

KARRAS

This chest is getting heavy.

ORA

It’s important. Once we’re clear of

all this, maybe I can go through

all the Prophecies and figure out

what It all means.

FORMOSA

Hey, where is Isten?

KARRAS

Who?

KEVIN

I have always liked you!

KARRAS

Really?

KEVIN

Well...not always...but long

enough.

ORA

Formosa, I have to tell you...

I did magic.

KEVIN

Ora! No!!

FORMOSA

What?! No. You can’t do magic.

ORA

I did! I mean, I think I did.

That’s how I got away and got the

Prophecies.

KARRAS

You did...??

KEVIN

You think you might have. You said

It yourself you don’t know.

ORA

Damn It, Kevin! You weren’t there

either! Fine, I might have, then!

This may be my fault...

FORMOSA

There is no way that...

ORA

Uff. What?

KARRAS

Ora, you Okay?

VORLAUF

There...STOP!

ORA

It’s him...

FORMOSA

We’ve got to get out of here!

VORLAUF

ANN! HAL!! IT’S THEM!!

ORA

-- shit! Go back!! Go back!

KEVIN

Not unless you want to join the

dead!

FORMOSA

Through the tents!!

VORLAUF

AFTER THEM!

ANN

Look out!!

RISEN

(Growl)

VORLAUF

AAAAA!

HAL

Got It! Cheeky bustard.

VORLAUF

HURRY!!

LINUS

I...I Can’t!

ANN

None of us can.

VORLAUF

AFTER THEM!!

SCENE BRAKE

FORMOSA

Look! There is the entrance! We can

just run to the forest.

KEVIN

Oh thank goodness! We can get out

of here!

ORA

WAIT!!

KEVIN

What?! What is It?!

ORA

Oh no! I...Formosa...

FORMOSA

What?! What’s wrong?!

ORA

Where is Spirit?!

SCENE BRAKE

ISTEN

Oh no, where did they go?

Damnit! I can’t believe I’m doing

this.

SCENE BRAKE

VORLAUF

Where did they go?

ANN

I...I need to stop...I need a

minute.

HAL

I hate to agree with Ann, Vorlauf,

but I must. We got away from the

dead guys...

VORLAUF

But where did the girl go?!

LINUS

For the love of the

land...oh...(Vomits)

VORLAUF

They can’t have gotten away...

COME ON.

SCENE BRAKE

FORMOSA

This way!

KEVIN

We better hurry, we’re being

followed.

FORMOSA

It’s not far. It was right outside

the gate.

KARRAS

Ora, I’m sorry! I didn’t even

think... I should have thought.

ORA

I should have, too. We just have to

find her.

KEVIN

If I die ‘cause of this horse...

KARRAS

What?!

KEVIN

I uh...nothing.

FORMOSA

There! It’s right up there!

Kevin, help me with the door.

ORA

Spirit!

SPIRIT

(Whinnies)

ORA

Thank goodness you’re safe.

KEVIN

Ora, I hate to be the bearer of bad

news. But like I said...we’re being

followed.

ORA

Release the horses!

KARRAS

YES!

KEVIN

Where are they going to go?

KARRAS

I do not know. But better than

being dead. HEAY! Go, get! Get out

of here Heya!

ORA

Spirit, you have to run!

You have to go without me. You have

to get to safety.

KARRAS

Wait!

ORA

What? She has to go!

KARRAS

Here, the prophecies. Put them in

these saddle bags.

ORA

Oh great idea!

FORMOSA

They are getting closer. We have to

go!

KEVIN

Where?

FORMOSA

There is a house around back where

the owners of the stable live. I’m

guessing they’re long gone. It’s

not great, but It has real walls.

ORA

Okay thats all of them.

Spirit, look at me.

SPIRIT

(blows)

ORA

I will be fine. I can’t leave

everyone. Go.

SPIRIT

(Whinnies)

KEVIN

Ora, we have to go!

What?!

SPIRIT

(Growls)

KEVIN

This is not my fault, you dumb

horse!

SPIRIT

(Neighs)

KEVIN

Alright, alright. Alright

FORMOSA

Everyone, THIS WAY!!

KARRAS

Ora, are you Okay?

ORA

She will find me again...she always

does.

KEVIN

Hey, in here!

FORMOSA

Karras, you watch the door. Kevin,

watch the windows.

ORA

Kevin...what if, what if this is my

fault and they are following me

some how?

KEVIN

It’s not.

ORA

Why don’t you believe me?

FORMOSA

Ora, there is no way that you could

have done any of this without

knowing you could do magic. I grew

up with the magic of the forest and

I thought risen weren’t real.

KEVIN

Here they come!

KARRAS

Shhh!

KEVIN

Karras! Let me help! Ora, the

window!

ORA

I got It.

KARRAS

I think they hear us.

KEVIN

Look out!

ORA

I’m on It!

Ora stabs the thing through its head, and It pulls back. Ora

shuts the wood slats over the window.

FORMOSA

There! There’s a board next to the

window. It locks them.

ORA

I see It.

ORA (CONT'D)

Come on Ora...if you can do magic

this would be a really good time.

KARRAS

Uh...should...I get that?

ORA

Hello? Who’s out there??

FORMOSA

Look, look. Under the door. It

looks like there’s a bright

light...

KEVIN

Is that...good?

FORMOSA

No idea...

ORA

Go ahead, Karras... No wait, wait.

Kevin, you open It. Karras, get out

your bow.

KEVIN

Ya’ know...I think this is a sign

from the world that I should take

up the bow...

ORA

Just get the door...everyone ready?

KEVIN

Okay...

ELIZABETH

Took you long enough! I opened my

door for you faster then that...

and no one was trying to kill you!
