Title: Just another day at HLP...
Post by: Unknown Target on July 02, 2002, 10:08:37 am
Scene One: EXT. Space
Fade from black. We see a starfield in front of us, and we start to move towards it, gradually going at a faster rate. Begin credits and music. We fly past multiple stars and nebulas as opening credits are fading in and out again. We suddenly see the dim outline of the VBB Station (Arcadia-class). Continue to roll credits and play music. We continuosly fly closer to the station, but pause about a mile out, as the music and credits stop. We stay like that for a few seconds, making the audience wonder what's going on. Suddenly, we see a flash of light, and a twin pair of thrusters burning intensly. Suddenly, more flashes and thruster glows appear, gradually becoming faster and more common. Suddenly, one flys towards us, passing just beneath the camera. The camera shakes as we play the flybye sound effects. Just as it leaves our FOV (Field Of View), we see numerous small explosions erupt on the Arcadia. Suddenly, a monstrous explosion rips the station in half. The two halves of the station begin to drift at apart, and suddenly a humongous explosion, complete with a colossal shockwave, erupts. We mute sound. Begin playing a solom, emotional music track. We cut to a 50-degree angled side view of three escape pods, flying as fast as they can away from the station. The station is out of our FOV, to the right of the screen, but the shockwave is approaching fast. The camera is bobbing up and down, trying to stay focused on the center pod. We see that the pod has a black scythe and a numer: 00494832, outlined against the white pod body. We cut to slow-motion, complete with motion blurs, as the shockwave overtakes the last two pods. Camera is still bobbing up and down. They get destroyed, and the shockwave continues on. In the distance we can see other pods have made it, but we continue to try to stay focused on the one pod. The shockwave manages to catch up, but only knocks out one of the engines, sending the ship into an uncontrollable death spiral. Continue to play music, but keep extrenal sounds muted. The pod gets knocked downards at incredible speeds. As the camera snaps downwards, we stop slow motion+blur, and follow it downwards. It is moving so fast, it doesn't take it long for us to lose sight of it. Fade to black.

Scene 2: INT. Day. HLPBB, General Discussions.
The scene opens to fish-eye view from the ceiling, looking down through a slowly turning fan. We see a gaggle of newbies, goggling at Setekh's renders, asking passerby where they could get the program that made them. Numerous discussions are taking place. We see an admin walk through, looking left and right for perpetrators, HLP hammer of justice dangling at his side.

Thunder: (Voice-Over) "When the Volition board was operating, we were our best hope for Moding. When it exploded in the cataclysmic event that sent shockwaves through the community, we became the last, best hope for Freespace."
Cut to black.
INT. Freespace Source Code Forum. Day.
Fade from black. We open to silence. A few machines can be seen in the background, along with some human sighloettes. All is lit by a bluish glow. Slowly, laboratory clicks and beeps can be heard. Suddenly, voices can be heard. A figure appears from behind the camera. It is Kazan. We follow him from a behind-the-back view. He walks towards the center. He pauses, and puts his arms on his hips. Suddenly, he looks to the right, and shouts at something. He runs over to the right. Before following him, we pause for a couple seconds. We see what he was looking at. It is a giant holographic display in the center of the room, with a double helix floating inside. the camera snaps to the right, and follows Kazan over to where he's shouting at Inquisitor. Numerous parts and components can be seen scattered over the floor.

Kazan: No, no, NO! Red goes here! Black goes THERE! What are you taking this all apart for! I'm trying to get out of here and you're taking everything apart!

Inquisitor makes some wookie-like groans and yelps

Kazan: Don't get smart with me, asshole!

As theycontinue to argue, we pan around the room, and we see r0nin playing with some Robotech toys in a corner, and WMCoolmon is fiddling with some high explosives. We see a troll cursing out a senior forum member in another corner, and zoom in.

Troll: Yuasshole!Youcoldn'tprogramifitwasshovdupyourass!

Bobboau: That doesn't even make any sense.

Troll: Shutupdipsht!

Suddenly, the door slams open, and we see the silghouete of Thunder framed against the outside light.

Bobboau: Thunder, finally, what took so long?

Thunder: Sorry, Bobboau, I had some problems withe the elavator. Now, where's that troll?

Bobboau: Over here.

Thunder walks over to the corner, and eyes the troll curiously. Suddenly, he grabs the handle of his hammer. The troll's eyes go wide. We cut to a close up of the troll's eyes. We cut to Thunder. We cut to the handle. In slow motion, he pulls it out. We mute all external sounds. When he pulls it out, we here an echoing click resound.

Troll: NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!

The hammer ignites, and, still in slow-mo, Thunder swings it down. External sound and regular speed return as the hammer connects, and troll is vaporized. Thunder walks outside, and the door closes behind him. We can here him whistling the tune to David Bowe's "I'm a Spaceman,"
Fade to black as we  zoom in on the door

And here's the next chapter.
[NOTE: This thread will probably be moved and renamed something else in the near future, due to the fact that the original (and unchangable) topic header is now inadequite to describe what this thread is about. In an effort to get more readers, I'm going to change it to better describe the story.]
Aaannnyyyywaaaayyysss....

INT. Docking bay 5. Day.
Fade from black. We open to see a general mess. Everything's charred and blackened, while shotgun holes riddle the walls and other areas. Numerous newbies are lying unconscious, strewn about the floor. Sounds of yelling and fighting can be heard in the next bay. We pan around the room, hearing and seeing some fires crackling in the distance. We stop panning, and focus on an escape pod. Wait a few seconds. A door bursts open, and we snap to it, and see wEvil, replete with flowing cape, walk into the room, flanked by Black Ace and Skippy.

wEvil: Black!

Black Ace: Yes, master?

wEvil: Has the package arrived?

BA: Yes, it is over there.

He points, and we pan the camera up along his arm, to see what he is pointing at. It's the shuttle. As they are walking to it, we pan out from them, and rotate the camera around the shuttle, still focusing on the group. We see burn marks on one of the engines.

wEvil: Skippy! Was it towed in without any...problems?

Skippy: A simple drone was inspecting the tractor beam, but we eliminated it.

wEvil: (in insidious Venom-like voice) Gooooooodddd....

He runs his hand over the shuttle's hull. He runs his figures over the chipped image of a scythe and a number: 00494832.

Thorn: Darkage! Begin cryogenic thawing immediatley!

Darkage: Yes sir, but it shall take awhile.

Thorn: That is acceptable. We have...
cut to a close up of his eyes, one is partially hidden in the shadows
...all the time in the world.

Screen wipe to:
INT. General Discussions. Day.
We see Kamikaze and Razor trying to decide which was better: Total Anhilation, or the Command and Conquer series

Kamikaze: I'm tellin' ya, Razor, C&C is way better that TA! Westwood practically made TA, because they revolutionised the RTS industry!

Razor: Not so! All they do is package the same game with new graphics and manuel, and sell it as Command Conquer: Yet Again! TA was so much better, because of it's originality!

Kamikaze: Riiiighhttt...and I suppose you think Elvis is alive too, right?

Razor: Shhhh! Don't say it so loud!

While the argument is going on, we pan over to see Thunder and Shrike discussing the current state of the board.

Thunder: I'm telling you Shrike, we should beef up security! The boards defences are 30 years old, and don't even get me talking about the bathrooms in the Independance War forums!

Shrike: Alright, Thunder you try footing the bill!

Thunder: Now, now, don't get hasty there, I'm simply saying...

His voice fades out as we also fade out the view to:

INT. TAP Forums. Night.
Fade from previous scene. We can here construction efforts in the background, and the sounds of drilling. We pan across the room to see a gaggle of contsruction workers hammering away at the pod

wEvil: (out of site) What is the delay! I expected this to be at least open two days ago!

Analazon: I am sorry, your evilness, but it is taking time. The pod was sealed shut in the cataclysm that destroyed the VBB.

Suddenly, in the background, we hear a shout and a groan of metal. WE snap to a view of the side of the pod, where a worker has pried open the shuttle's main cargo door. Inside we can see the two frozen bodies of Alpha_One, and HemroidFrogButt.

wEvil: The day has come! We will bring HLP to it's knees, and let the rule of the trolls begin!

a cheer erupts from the crowd, as we fade to black

What is wEvil's plan? Will he succeed? Stay tuned, and comments are welcome!

For the fans :D ;)
Part 5+6, coming later, because I know this one was kinda short....




---------------------
--------Part 3
---------------------



Fade from black. We open up to see:

INT. GD. Day.
We see a giant Shivan in the corner, eating some newbies. Next to him is the charred remnants of some cattle prods. We see CobaltStarr walk past, then do a double-take of the situation

CS: Carl! I thought I told you to leave them alone!

We see Carl glance at the prods

CS: What, did they mistake you for a cow again? I mean, geez, you'd think they'd learn by now.

Carl grunts

CS: Well then, I was just going to Freespace Moding, you want something?

carl groans and tosses a slab of meat at him.

CS: That's right, you're probably full. Well, see ya!

As CobaltStarr walks away, we pan across the room to see Ace Pace, Analazon, and Infested_Larvae talking to wEvil. We cut to a close up of each of thier faces. We focus on each as each person is talking.

Infested_Larvae: So what did you want us for, Evil?

Ace Pace: Yea, I've got this kewl campaign I was wanting to play back in the main lobb--

wEvil: Silence fool! I talk not of petty games, but of the total domination of the HLPBB!

Analazon: Hey, whoa, man, you can't do that! That's against the rules, right?

We cut to a close-up of wEvil's eyes. We see him shoot a look of pure venom at Analazon, making us wonder what might happen to him.

wEvil: Maybe it is, hmmmm?

Ace Pace, seeing this, interjects:

Ace Pace: So, ummm, Evil, what did you have in mind?

Infested_Larvae: Yea, I'm in! When do we start?

wEvil: You just wait, my friend. Just wait...

---------------------
------Part 4
---------------------

We cut to a close up of wEvil eyes, as we fade to black. When it is completely black, we see a flair of red light, shaping itself into wEvil's eyes. We think it really is his eyes, until the rest of the screen gradually fades from black. As we zoom out from the lights, the room begins to materialize.We see it is only an empty cob-webbed forum, with junk scattered everywhere. The eyes turn out to be elavator position lights. They grow brighter and brighter, in tune with the noise coming from the shaft. Suddenly, when the lights are almost blinding, the noise stops, and the door opens, a la Babylon 5-type swing. Two men in battle armor step out, machine-gun-mounted flashlights in hand. They swing the lights back and forth.
 One of them shines it directly into the camera, whiting it out. When the soldier swings his rifle away, we see we have moved somewhere else in the the place. One of the soldiers puts a hand to the side of his head and holds it there. We here wEvil's voice crackle over the radio. We begin zooming in on the soldier's helmet, where he is holding his hand.


wEvil: (in grainy, staticy voice) Is it clear?

Soldier: Yes, there were a few forum lurkers, but we took care of them. They're feeding the Vasudans now.

Keep zooming into soldiers head.


wEvil: Excellent, this abandoned forum will serve as our base of operations for now. Secure the area, I am sending construction crews now.

now we have entered the soldiers helmet. We see a small microphone and zoom into it. Suddenly, we stop zooming and pull out, revealing that we are in the cryogenic farm's controll room, overlooking the farm. We see that the two trolls that were recovered from the pod are almost thawed out. wEvil is holding the microphone. Continue zooming out until we stop just past his sholder.

wEvil: Black...?

Black Ace: (off-screen) Yes, sire?

wEvil: I want you...to make me a moderator.

Black Ace: (Obviously stunned) But sir! That won't go over too well, people will get susp--

wEvil: The people will know nothing. We will issue a statement that I am taking over the project that used to be hosted on the forum we are now using and say that I am being given the powers to suit such a position.

Black Ace: As you wish, sire.

We cut to black

Part 5: Coming soon! Again, comments welcome!

DAMN IT! I have to re-type the entire thing now! Please, don't be surprised if this is a little short, or if it isn't as good. Bear with me here.

---------------------------------
----------Part 5
---------------------------------

Fade from black. We open to:

INT. Forum Control. Night.

We open to see the room in severe dis-array. The HLP staff are lying around the room, all in different stages of sleep. Suddenly, a slow, methodic beeping starts. We pan around the room towards the beeping, and eventually focus on Griffon, asleep at his console. We see the beeping reflect off of his face from the distance. Cut to 50 degree, downards-angle close up of his face. All we can see is his face, the far wall, and the console he's resting on. He wakes up slowly, obviously in a daze.

Griffon: Hey? Wha? Honey, I swear, I didn't--oh.

He gets up wearily, and stretches his back. He walks over to Thunder

Griffon: Thunder! Thu-Thunder! Hey!

We see him reach for a box of stale chicken McNuggets, also lying on Thunder's desk. He whacks Thunder over the head with them.

Thunder: (Startled) AHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!! ATTACK! GET DOWN! MAYDAY!!! YAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!

Thunder leapes towards him. Griffon falls over backwards to dodge his blows. As Griffon is in mid-fall, and Thunder's in mid-air, where Griffon used to be, pause time. Begin camera half-rotation. Stop rotation when this is done, and fast forward time to 2X it's normal speed. When they hit the ground, return time speed to normal. We pan around to focus on Thunder, lying on the floor

Thunder: WhoWhatWhereWhy?!

Griffon: (on the floor, out of site) Relax, Thunder. We picked up something on the sensors that I thought you might want to see.

We see Thunder get up to walk over to the console. We follow him with the camera, eventually resting on a back view, so all we can see is his back and sections of the console. Griffon gets up to meet him. He settles in the same position, next to him.

Thunder: Well, what is it?

Griffon: (Nods, and taps screen) Well, it seems that we have sensor contacts here and here, in the Technological Superiority forum.

Thunder: Well, yea, duh. Don't you read announcments? What's-his-name, uhhhhhhh....Wedgie, was it? He's taking over the project there. Even been given full Moderator privelages.

Griffon: It's, erm, wEvil. Sir.
Anyways, I heard that, but that isn't the thing that I'm worried about.

Thunder: Oh, and what is?

Griffon: (Taps screen wherever he's pointing.) Well, it seems that we have contacts here, where they should be.

Thunder: Annnnnnnnndddddd........?

Griffon: (Getting a little nervous) Well, we also have contacts here, here annnnddd....here. Where they shouldn't be.

Thunder: Ahhhh...I see them. Well, it's probably nothing. Lurkers, most like.

Griffon: But sir!

Thunder: (laughs) You worry too much, Griffon!

Griffon: I worry just the right amount, sir. (winks, and smiles)

Thunder: (smiles back) Alright, I'll gether a couple people and send them in, if that'll make you feel better.

Griffon: It would sir, thank you.

Thunder pats him on the back, and begins to walk away. We follow him with the camera, until we're a little away from Griffon's body, but on a flat horizontal plane. We can still see Thunder through the gap created by Griffon's still stoopched form. Thunder pauses

Thunder: Oh, and Griff?

Griffon: Yes, sir?

Thunder: Remind me to demote you for whacking with those nuggets. Now I have to go take a shower. Gah, that's the last time we order take-out from there!

Griffon: (Grins) Aye, sir.

Screen wipe to:

Post by: Unknown Target on July 03, 2002, 10:13:21 am
We have screen wiped from the previous scene to:

INT. General Discussions. Day.
We open to a worm's-eye view of the room, facing a tall platform, suspended above the floor. Numerous people are blocking the view. We can overhear snippets of conversation.

Senior Forum Member: So, have you heard? Tech Sup is being revived!

Newbie: What's that?

SFM #2: Really? By who?

Newbie: Who?

SFM #1: wEvil I think. He's even got full moderation powers!

Newbies: What's a moderation power?

SFM #2: Wow!

Newbie: Wow? Does that have to do with MODing?

SFM # 1+2: Grrrrr..........

Two shapes flash past the camera from the left, and sounds of shouting and a scuffle can be heard. We continue to stay in our current view. Suddenly,  what we can only presume to be the newbie's head slams down in front of the camera, with Razor(who is SFM #1) and Icefire (SFM #2) on top of him, pinning him down.

Newbie: Arrrrrrrr! Gerhoff! GERHOFF!

The newbies face is looking directly at the camera, but it's also being flattened against the floor.

Razor: (Out of view) So, whaddya say, Ice? Should we roast him? Or feed him to Carl over there?

IceFire: You know, I am kinda hungry...

Razor: Roasting it is, then!

Newbie: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Suddenly, a figure appears behind the newbie on the raised platform. It's Griffon

Griffon: Attention!

No one pays attention

Griffon: At-Attention! Hello!? Ah, forget it!

He looks over his sholder and calls out to something behind him. Slowly the figure walks forwards. We zoom in on the platform, just in time to see this mysterious figure reveal himself from the shadows. It is...daveb.
The room quickly falls silent. We pan around to look from the two figures' backs, looking out into the forum room.


Newbie: (In hushed whisper) Who's he?

Icefire reaches over his head, and pulls out a small, cylindrical object. Igniting the object, he forms a large bludgeon, and knocks the newbie out with one hit.

Griffon: I'm sure...(he glances at the now-unconsious newbie)...most of you know who this is here?

A silent murmer goes through the crowd

Griffon: Good. Now, to business. Will the forum militia task force please report to the briefing room? Thank you.
 
We rotate the camera so it's facing the front of these two figures, and pan outwards, so that we are just behind Razor and Icefire. They look at each other as we screen wipe to:

INT. Forum Military briefing room. Day.
We screen wipe to a fully seated table, with multiple people sitting around it. They are: Icefire, Razor, venom2506, Zeronet and Gortef. They have obviously been there for awhile, as they are looking around nervously. Suddenly, a side door opens with the Babylon 5-type swoosh, and in walk Thunder, Griffon and daveb.
The latter is obviosly a curiosity, as all eyes follow him when he walks in. We pan the camera around to follow them, and as Thunder seats himself at the head of the table, the other two take up flanking positions behind him.


Thunder: Thank you all for coming.

A rustle goes through the crowd.

Thunder: Now, down to business. It seems that Griffon...

Griffon nods

Thunder:...has informed me that we have reason to believe that there are un-sanctioned activities taking place in the TechSup forum at this current time. As such, we will mount a small, secret expedition into the "belly of the beast," so to speak.

There is an outbreak of voices and arguments in the crowd

Thunder: Quiet, hello, he-hello? Quiet, QUIET!!!!!

No response from the now extremely loud voices. daveb steps forward.

daveb: (in normal voice) Quiet...

The room suddenly falls silent.

Thunder: Thank you, daveb. Now, if we could hold our tempers in CHECK...

Sheepish looks follow this.

Thunder: We could get along with the proceedings. Now, Griffon has a plan for this expedition, Griffon?

Griffon: Yes, well, umm, hello!

Irritated looks from the gathering

Griffon: (adjusts neck piece) Ummm...yes, well, uhhh. Now, um, my plan is to...

Zeronet: Spit it out!

Griffon: Humph! Anyways, the plan is that you will go in...

His voice fades out as we also fade out to:

INT. Cryogenic Farm. Day.

We open to an outside, front view of the cryogenic control room. Everything is bathed in a greenish glow. Inside are the figures of wEvil and Infested Larvae.

IL: They are free, sire!

E: So...I, the chessplayer am now about to make my first move. Is the commnode almost complete?

IL: Almost, sire, almost. Would you like to meet our guests?

E: Yes, bring them in.

A small side door swooshes open, and HemroidFrogButt, Alpha_One and a beaten, battered Analazon enter. The latter is being held up by two security gaurds. wEvil walks towards Analazon, and bends over, so he can speak to him.

E: Ahhhhhhhh....yes. Hello, Analazon. So nice of you to drop in.

A: Grumph....damn fu--

Suddenly, a gaurd behind him shocks him with a prod.

E: Now, now, there is no need for that. Let our guest speak freely. It is only good manners that we should let him, is it not?

A: (breithing heavily) I'll....get you. You can't run...I'll COME FOR YOU!!!!!!!

He is obviously exhausted by the effort, and slumps back again.

E: (laughs) I don't think you are quite in the position to "get" anybody, Anny!

He straightens, and walks over to where Alpha_One and HemroidFrogButt are standing. Facing them, he speaks

E: Well...welcome again to the land of the living, Alpha, Hemroid.

AO: We are pleased to be here, and I thank you.

HFB: Yea, wll, I tink yu stupid!

AO: That's his way of saying thanks.

HFB: Yea.

E: Well, then...first thing's first. Men, take Anny--

A: Don't...call...me....that...

E: Well, take it back to his...quarters. Alpha, please accompany me to the briefing room. Hemroid, you can come too, but afterwards, you are attending a spelling class.

HFB: Yea.

Fade to black.

So, what do you think? Please keep commenting, I like reading your comments a lot! ;) :D

Still looking good dude - and it seems this actually has a story as well now! At the start I was worried it was going to be aimless comedy but aimless comedy with a plot of sorts is actually much better!

Oh, and give Griffon more of decent part in the next one, he doesn't just stammer you know ;)

Also... the rest of the staff! Introduce some of them - HLP isn't just me and Griff (who isn't on the staff BTW) anymore!.

Even so - good stuff.

INT. Militia Ready Room. Day.
Fade From black. Our view is being blocked by some long, cylindracle objects. Voices can be heard in the background, as well as sounds of shuffling and movements of clothes. Suddenly we here daveb's voice:

daveb: Alright people, listen up. The plan is to enter through the air shafts.

Zeronet: Boy, I know a couple girls who would love getting shafted like this.

A small laugh ripples through the assembaly

daveb: Hardy-har-har. We're going into territory that is presumed hostile. Everybody, be on your gaurd, and watch each other's backs. No one gets left behind.

Gortef: It is not wise to quote Black Hawk Down when going into combat.

Fantomeye: I agree.

venom2506: Cyclops! I didn't know you were coming.

Fantomeye: Well, I am. You guys need someone to babysit you. Oh, and venom?

Our view is still obscured by the objects.

venom: Yes?

Fantomeye: The eye at the end of name does not automatically make it ok for you to call me cyclops.

venom: It doesn't?

We here Fantomeye groan.

daveb: Alright, enough chatter people, let's move! Go go, go, go!

Every time he says go, we hear running, and one of the objects is grabbed away, gradually clearing our view. We soon realise that the objects are guns. When the last gun is grabbed, we pan the camera around and lock it on the last soldier. He follows everyone else into a dark tunnel, and we go with him, and our screen is completely blackened.

INT. TS forum, sector 2942.

We pan to the left of the blackness, and it turns out it is simply a crate. Once we pass the crate, we begin a slow ascent above them, and see two workers welding together a large object, hidden in the shadows. A lone figure walks up behind them. We cannot see his face, only hear his voice, but it turns out to be wEvil.

wEvil: Is it ready?

Worker 1: Yes, we are only adding the final touches now.

E: Goooooood........ Command of the creatures when they arrive will be transfered to Alpha_One, so map it to his nureal pathways, is that understood?

Worker 2: Yes, sire.

The figure turns away, and his cloak twirls around behind him. He walks out quickly, and the workers return to their work. Fade to black.

Fade from black. We see we are in a small, squarish tunnel. Figures can be seen crawling along, with beams of light waving back and forth, coming from the sides of their heads.. We soon realize that they are the marines.

Fantomeye: Hold up...

We cut to his point-of-view (POV), with his helmet interface also being shown. We see a map of the air shafts being super-imposed on a green background. The background is his visor. Cut to outside view again, we see him tapping something on the side of his head. Each time he does so, we cut back to his POV, showing what he's doing. He's re-sizing the map. We can see a flashing red blip on the map, and when he finally does about two taps, we see crosshairs, flashing and growing larger and smaller.

Fantomeye: There's our objective. Men, set your heading for Z-minus-2309. Remember, return fire only, we are not here to engage the enemy.

venom: Roger.

Gortef: Roger.

Zeronet: Roger.

daveb: Roger.

Icefire and Razor: (in a long, dissapointed voice) Roooooooooggggggeeeeeeeerrrrrrr..........

Fantom: Let's go.

They begin slowly crawling forwards. Fade to black, and fade in again, this time at a different location. We are now facing forwards in the tunnel, and there is a grate, with light coming through, about 2 feet in front of us. We see a line of people crawling towards us. They are obviosly the marines. The leader, Fantomeye, holds up a fist. The group stops. Slowly, we see Fantomeye peer over the ledge of the grate. We move the camera forwards, and begin a gradual upwards slope, until we're looking directly downwards. We obviously can't see anything, and neither can he. We hear shuffling, muted voices, and then we here:

Icefire: Finally!

We see a figure advance forwards, and he starts to do something to the grate. He attaches something to it, and backs away. All we can see are four lumps on each side of the grate. We hear Ice chuckle, and a button click. The four lumps explode, albeit quitly, and dislodge the grate. We pan the camera downards again to it's previous spot, and see a figure nod to another one.

Fantomeye: Go ahead, daveb.

daveb: Roger.

The second figure moves forwards, and pulls the grating out. He attaches a rope to the side of the grating, and let's himself downwards. Suddenly, we hear numerous weapons cocking. we zoom down the rope, and situate ourselves behind daveb's slowly rotating body. Locking the camera on his back, we pan around the room with him, and see that he is surrounded by enemies.

daveb: (under breath) ****!

He tugs three times on the rope. We cut back to the camera's previous positon, and see Fantomeye

Fantom: ****! He's caught, and requesting support. Ice, Razor, set explosives on opposite ends of the tunnel. Detonate them, and crawl through, to try and get him out. I'll fire from here. Zeronet, Gortef, go with them, gogogogo!

The figures scatter up and down the tunnel, and we focus on Icefire and Gortef crawl down the passageway. Ice sets the detonators.

Ice: LET'S PARTY!

We cut to a close up of his detonator, and mute all external sounds. Cue slow-mo. We hear the click of the detonator. We cut to a close-up of the hammer on Fantom's gun, and it draws backwards slowly, and goes forwards. We hear a click. We cut to a close up of daveb's pistol, mounted at his waste. He pulls it out and aims it at an enemy soldier's head. We zoom in on the hammer. We here the click of the hammer. Cut to 2X normal speed and we see the man drop, and everyone in the group open fire at daveb, who quickly drops to the floor, and spins around, firing off his pistol at all sundry. Cut to Gortef and Icefire. We see them drop to the floor also, and in the distance, we can see the other team do the same. Both teams blast a group of badguys who were standing around. Suddenly, fire erupts from everywhere. One of the bad guys aims a bullet at where Fantomeye was hiding, and empties about thirty rounds into the shaft. Cut to slow mo, and a horizontal view of the holes. Blood starts to drip through them. Cut to Razor and Zeronet and normal speed. They are both hiding behind a stack of crates. While Razor is giving the smackdown to everything that moves, we see Zeronet laying on his back and screaming into his radio.

Zeronet: Situation compromised! Situation Compromised! Mayday! Mayday! Mayday!

Cut to:
INT. Forum Control. Day.
We open up to a view of the controll room where we can see all of the desks, and we are sort of at a horizontal angle. We can hear over the static Zeronet's hurried message, and weapons fire can be heard in the background. Thunder stands up in front of the camera and scratches the back of his head. Sighing, he walks over to the radio operator. Leaning over to him:

Thunder: Signal a retreat.

Cut to
INT. TS forum, sector 2942.
We open again to the last position we left. Except now one of Razor's arms now hangs loosley by his side, and an empty, smoking weapon is lying on the floor. He is currently blasting away with his pistol. Suddenly, Zeronet grabs his limp arm.

Razor: OW! ****! Watch it man!

Zeronet: Sorry Razor, but we've got to high-tail it out of here. I'm relaying the retreat order to everyone else.

Razor looks at Zeronet in disbalief. We can hear Zeronet relaying the message, and Razor turns back, and begins to blast away. Suddenly we hear him scream, and his head falls over into Zeronets lap. There is a bloody hole in it. Zeronet looks downwards and yelps. The sounds of weapon fire gradually become more sporadic, as Zeronet drags Razor's body out of the place, and back into the air shaft. In the distance, we can see that Gortef and Icefire have also made it.
Cut the camera to an over-the soldier view from daveb, after everyone has left, and the weapon fire has stopped. dave is currently being gaurded by multiple enemies. His arm hangs limp next to an empty pistol. Numerous dead are lying all over the place, a testament to his handiwork. Suddenly, the gaurds in front of him part, to let a cloaked figure pass through.

daveb: Who are you?

The figure just stands in front of him and doesn't answer.

daveb: WHO ARE YOU?!

The figure crouches down. Slowly he takes off his mask, but before we can see his face, we cut to a close up of daveb's eyes. While we can't see him, from his voice we know it's....Alpha_One

AO: Oh I think you know me.....daveb.

daveb: No...NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here we go:

Fade From black, we open to:
INT. Left Hospital Wing. Day.
When we open, we see two stretchers at an above angle, and as the stretchers are being pushed towards the camera, we keep movingbackwards to keep them in the same position. One of the stretchers is covered by a body bag. Numerous IV lines are hanging from the mobile IV stands, each reaching into the other stretcher's occupant. IceFire, Thunder and Zeronet are running next to the stretchers, each trying to keep up. Zeronet is standing next to the body bag, and trying hard to look tough, and unfased, however, we can see through it.

Thunder: (Panting) How's Gortef's condition?

Nurse: (Pushing Stretcher) He's going to be ok, he just took a bullet to the leg. Nothing to o serious. He was just knocked unconcious.

A visible sigh goes through the rest of the crowd. Then they look at Razor (in body bag).

Nurse: (seeing this) Took a bullet to the Cerebral Cortex, I'm sorry, but there's nothing we can do.

We cut to a close up of Zeronet's eyes. We see a single tear fall from his cheak. Cut to black.

Fade from black:
INT. TS forum. Day.

We open to see a large, round object. It is the object we saw in earlier scenes, but it now completed. We rotate the camera around, and we see a large control room. Zooming in, and stopping just outside of it, we see Infeted Larvae and Alpha_One.

IL: (turns to face Alpha_One) It is time. Are you ready.

Alpha_One nods and reaches for something lying on the console in front of them. It appears to be some sort of headgear. Putting it on, he looks outwards towards the sphere. Continue with our current view. Deaden all sounds (do not mute), but keep talking at normal levels.

AO: And so....the time has come.

IL: Yes, and you shall rule the coming era. But now, we must continue with the plan.

Infested_Larvae reaches for a michrophone on the desk. We cut to a view of the sphere. Some odd protrusions can be seen from this angle.

IL: (over intercom) All workers, evacuate, all workers evacuate launch deck!

Infested_Larvae sets the microphone down, and after a few moments, the door starts to open (we cannot see the control room, we are still looking at the device). The pod slowly gets pulled back a few feet, and then it is catapulted forwards, into space. We cut to an outside view of the hanger, looking directly down at the pod. The pod flies towards us. When it is supposed to hit, we cut to black.

INT. General Discussions. Day.
Fade from black. We open a little ways away from a gaggle of forum members. We move the camera forwards a bit, until we're standing right next to the group, where we can hear some snippets of the conversation.

Member1: So, as I was saying, Padme is waaaaay cuter than Leia!

Member2: No way man, Leia, in Return of the Jedi? Huuuuuuhhhhhh...hooooooooot.

Member3: Well, personally, I prefer R2-D2.

The other two members look querly at him, before resuming their conversation. Suddenly, another member shouts at them and starts to jog towards them. The other members are clearly confused about this. It turns out that the person is TheVirtu.

Virtu: Hey, guys! Did any of you see where the hell Razor went?

Member 1: No, I haven't seen him in awhile!

Member 2: I haven't seen a lot of people for awhile, either...Wonder where they all went...

Member 3: Probably to my happy place.

TheVirtu, and two other forum members look at him oddly again.

Member 3: (looks at them) What?

Fade to black.

INT. Forum Control. Day.

CobaltStarr: (leaning back in his chair) Hey, Thunder! Yo!

Thunder, still brooding at his desk after what happened last time, wearily gets to his feet, and approaches Cobalt. We follow him with the camera, situating it behind him.

Thunder: (sighs) What is it now?

Cobalt: Well, it seems I've got some incoming jump signa--

Thunder: What?! (He shoves Cobalt out of the way) There hasn't been a signature here in years!

Cobalt: (Somewhat Ruffled and indignant) Well, there's one there now. Actually, there's more than one.

Thunder: Those aren't just any signatures...they're Interplay ships.

Dozens of shocked gasps ripple through the crowd. Shuffling of chairs can be heard.

Thunder: Now let's not panic! First, we have to figure out what brought them here.

We snap the camera back and forth as each successive person speaks.

Cobalt: I think I found it sir. I'm reading interment energy fluctuations, coming from an object about 2 clicks out.

Thunder: Roger, I see it. Carl!

We hear a toilet flush and out steps Carl, with a toilet paper sheet wrapped around a single claw. He grunts inquisitevely.

Thunder: I need you to arm all external weapons, and destroy the source of the energy readings, check?

Carl grunts and walks over to a console. The lights flicker a bit as the weapons are being revved up. Carl nods to Thunder.

Thunder: Fire!

Cut to Carl. He presses a button and is greeted by total darkness. The weapon panel totally shuts down.

Thunder: Damn it! SHRIKE I TOLD YOU TO UPGRADE THOSE WEAPONS!

Shrike: What? You try to upgrade to upgrade to the new quad-directional pulse cannons! They're expensive as ****!

Thunder: (sighs and rubs the bridge of his nose) Alright. (Puts hands on side of hips) Issue a warning, get everyone alerted. Bring up all internal weapons.

He shoots a look at Carl. Cut to Carl shaking his head, and Thunder sighs again.)

Thunder: Well, ****. Ok, this is the first place whoever did this is going to come for us, so I suggest we leave. Windrunner, issue the report.

Moniters in the room hum to life as Windrunner is speaking. He issues the statement and gets off quickly. The moderators and admins get to the elavator, and we follow their backs towards it. The camera is a little away from them, so we don't get in with them, so we keep moving in until we are about to enter the capsule, when the door shuts, completely blackening out our screen.

Except that I was the one pushing for vB because it had the best functionallity, even though I would have to pay for it.  It was funny the first time because we were talking about how much it was before we did the upgrade.

alright, my creative and comedy juices are frozen in my veins right now, so I can't post anything today. Probably not tommorow either, because I'm going SCUBA diving, and then there's the fourth of July celebrations.


So expect the next part around the 5th. But that's not the reason I'm posting. I was thinking that, due to the immense quality of everyone on HLP's skills when it comes to Light Wave and rendering, why don't we make this an actual movie.

Well, I had Kier help me install it on the old dynamic server... for free.  Actually, he's writing something into vB3 partially due to the trouble he had getting it to run on our old server. ;)

Who says I'm not nice to you guys :D :p:

INT. General Discussions. Day.
Fade from black. Raise camera from ground level to eye level as we do so. Pan around slowly. We see general pandemonium ensue, with forum members running too and fro, hastily gathering junk materials and stacking them up against the doors. Numerous barricades are forming all around the room, all facing towards the front door. We see Thorn stacking up .pof files, in order to rig another make-shift barricade. Monitors above are playing Windrunner's message repeatadly. We cut to a close up of the monitor, so it almost fills the entire screen as he's talking.

Monitor: Reports were flooding in at the time of this message that the enemy, whoever it is, is overrunning our forward positions with ease.

We cut to a corridor, and see a barricade hastily constructed across it. We cut to a close-up of one of the soldier's faces: It's Corhellion. We hear footsteps in the distance. We pan and move the camera around till we are looking at an over-the-sholder view of the hallway. They are obviosly agitated, and are moving about a little on their knees. Suddenly,  numerous large shadows start to appear against the wall. They keep growing bigger. Cut to a view of Cor's face. A single bead of sweat is starting to form on his chin. Suddenly, we hear him speak, and we cut the camera to a side view of his face, so we can just make out mikhael beside him, and an0n farther down.

Cor: Wait a minute, guys, this doesn't make any sense!

mikhael (other soldier): What doesn't? They're coming for us, and we blow them up?

Cor: Well, they would expect us to face this way, towards them, so that means...

We cut to a close up of his face. The sweat bead falls downards.

Cor: That they're behind us!

All three whirls around, and we cut to a ground level view of what was behind him. A massive force of enemies can be seen. Corhellion and company open fire down the corridor, shredding the enemy. The sweat bead hit's the floor in front of us. We cut to a 55 degree horizontal angle view as each person talks.

Cor: an0n! Cover our front! We don't want to get stuck in here!

an0n: Roger!

mikhael: (fires a round off into a troll that got particularly close) I think that's going to happen anyways, sir!

Cor: (Begins looking around. He looks up at the ceiling.) There!

He fires a burst up into the roof, and a chunk of it falls down on top of mikhael.

mikhael: What are you trying to do? Kill me!?

Cor: Sorry man, but we gotta jet! Give me surpressing fire!

mikhael: Roger!

an0n: As you wish.

Cor jumps up into the hole and crawls into the shaft. Looking downards, he calls to mikhael to follow him up.

Cor: COme on mikhael, get up here!

mikhael: Coming, coming, keep your pants on!

an0n: (fires a round off into a marauding former forum member) Actually, take them off! The sight may kill the creatures!

Cor: Veeeeeeeery funny, an0n! You're turn!

an0n: One sec!

an0n reaches into his jacket and pulls out three four small objects.

an0n: FIRE IN THE HOLE!

He clenches the four objects in his mouth, and pulls a pin out. He tosses two down both ends of the corridor, and jumps up onto the ledge. We cut to a view of where the grenade landed. It bounces and rolls in between the legs of a troll. The troll looks down and grunts. Suddenly, an explosion rips out of the grenade. We cut to a side view of an0n's legs. It's taking him a while to get up.

Cor: Damn it! I told you to lose a few pounds!

an0n: I did!

They pull him up just in time, as the explosion travels through the tunnel and destroys everything in it. Cut to:

INT. Docking bay 22. Day.

We open to a view overlooking the hanger bay, from an upwards slant, looking down from the ceiling. A shuttlecraft emerges through the forcefeild that was gaurding the bay from the coldness of space. The shuttle touches down, and a figure emerges. He is clad in a black business suit, shades, and is carrying a briefcase. wEvil approaches him.

wEvil: Ahhhhhhh......greetings! I am wEvil, and you are?

Figure: Agent 427, Interplay public relations.

wEvil: Well, well. I do welcome you to our cozy little home. Alpha_One!

AO: Yes, sire?

E: Tell our...guests what we need.

AO: Yes sire.

Alpha closes his eyes, and begins a deep trance. The agent cocks his head to one side, as if listening to something.

Agent: As you wish.

Cut to black.

I know how that is. My senior year I made Battalion XO and we barely had two companies. Hell to be legal for the RFI we had to form them into a single company.

Least when I went back to visit after AIT they were back up to 3 companies...and 5 the following year

More coming soon!

INT. Squad War Forum. Day.

Fade from black. We open to see Blue Lion and Warlock sitting behind a barricade. Behind and in front of them, numerous other people are rushing about, trying to construct their own defences before the coming onslaught reaches them.

Blue Lion: So, anyways, have you heard?

Warlock: Heard what?

Blue Lion: You mean you haven't heard! My God, man!

Warlock: Heard WHAT!

Blue Lion: That the forum was supposed to get re-paint--

Warlock lunges for Blue, when suddenly, pounding is heard on the door. We cut to a front view of it, and indentations are seen being made on the door, in time with the pounding sounds. Cut back to a view of Warlock and Blue. They reach for their weapons and hunker down. Slowly, we begin zooming in on them. All other activity has stopped, as everyone is staring at the main door. Begin zooming in the two.

Warlock: Hey, blue?

Blue Lion: What?

We get really close to them now. Stop camera, and wait.

Warlock: Just telling you, if I don't make it through this...

Blue Lion: Yea?

Warlock: You can't have my Freespace 2 CD's!

As sooon as he says this, we hear an enormous explosion. Cut to an over-the sholder view of the two. Smoke and darkness conseal what is beyond the door. Warlock and Blue open fire, and slowly we see the shape of people emerge from the smoke. Begin zooming the camera in on the door.

Figure 1: Attention! Siece and desist! I am Interplay agent number 505, Technicale support.

Warlock: Support this, asshole!

He fires off 3 rounds into the agent's chest. We see sparks where the bullets should have hit, and we hear the spent casings clang against the floor.

Agent: That was...not wise.

He reaches inside his suit, and pulls out a pistol. Carefully aiming it, he fires a single shot at Warlock's head. The bullet connects, and we hear Warlock (who is still off-screen) scream out with pain.

Blue Lion: Warlock!

We cut to a close-up of Blue Lion's eyes. He his looking down at his fallen buddy. Slowly, he turns his eyes towards the agent. We cut to an angle view of him. He hoists his weapon onto the barricade's side.

Blue Lion: DIE YOU ****ING BASTARDS!

We see him open fire, and him screaming with anger. We cut back to a worm's-eye-view of the agents. We move the camera back as they walk towards it. We see bullets bouncing off their chests. Slowly, behind the first agent, we see dozens more emerge, with pistols drawn. They begin firing away at targets off-screen. We can hear the screams of the other forum members. Slowly, the first agent aims his pistol at where we last saw Blue Lion. He fires, and we cut to black.

INT.TechSup forum, control room. Day.

Fade from black and pan around the room as we do so. Freeze when we see HemroidFrogButt and wEvil talking to each other.

HFB: Yu caled me, sire?

E: Yes...I have an assignment for you, my dear friend.

We see HFB eagerly rubbing his hands together. Suddenly, we hear a noise behind them, and we snap the camera to it. It turns out to be a door opening, and through it walks daveb, head down, hands shackled behind his back. He has a large bullet wound in his shoulder, and he's being prodded along by a gaurd. Suddenly, he wheels around, and kicks the gaurd in the chin. The gaurd falls, and he catches the falling stunprod behind him in his hands. He jumps up and flips, moving his hands from behind him to in front of him, by moving them under his bunched up feet. He lands, and looks right at wEvil. We register a moment of surprise, but it passes.

daveb: (still holding prod) Ahhhh...wEvil. How good to see you.

wEvil: Not as glad as Hemroid will be.

daveb: (eyes go wide) Not---

Suddenly, Hemroid appears behind him out of the shadows, and elbows him in the back of the neck. daveb drops like a stone, and HFB goes back to stand at his place next to wEvil. The gaurd gets up in the background, rubbing his chin.

HFB: Sorry I took so long, sire.

wEvil: You are forgiven. You!

The gaurd snaps to attention.

wEvil: Take our resident celeberaty, and lock him in the interrogation room, we will be down shortly.

The gaurd gives him a crisp solute, hoists daveb up, and carries him back down the corridor. We follow him down, and our screen is completely blackened out by the darkness of the corridor.

INT. Interrogation Room. Day.

Suddenly, we see a bright light flare in the middle of the screen. We pan to the left, and see it is a dangling lamp, with daveb on a chair, staring up into it. The rest of the room is totally dark, but we see shadows of wEvil and HFB flash by, just out of view. Footsteps are heard.

wEvil: (out of view, in the shadows.) Greetings, daveb.

davib: (groans) Whaddya want....?

wEvil: I want to know where the power generators are.

daveb: You mean you don't know?

wEvil: No. I am not permitted to access that high level of security. Besides, the admins destroyed all records of it.

daveb: (chuckles weakly) Why do you want me, then? What makes you think I know.

wEvil: Why, we got it from Analazon.

daveb: He told you?

wEvil: No, we brain-screened him. It's quite painful, if you want to know, and it kills the scannie, after about ten minutes or so.

daveb is suddenly very serious. Raises head, and seemingly follows wEvil around the room, all though we can't see him.

daveb: You going to do this to me, then? You know, of course, that I won't tell you a thing, right?

Suddenly, the footsteps stop, and wEvil lunges from the shadows at daveb. We cut to an over-the sholder view of daveb. wEvil grips the sides of the chair tightly, and shouts into his face.

wEvil: Stop answering my questions with more questions, fool!

daveb chuckles slightly. Then wEvil starts to squeze the bullet hole in daveb's sholder. We hear daveb groan. From the indications on wEvil's face, we see that he is squezing progressively harder. Suddenly, he let's go, and steps back into the shadows.

wEvil: Forgive me, daveb. I seem to have lost my...composure. Hemroid!

We cut to a front view of daveb. Suddenly, HFB steps out of the shadows behind daveb, and injects something into him. We cut to daveb's POV. It is swirling and misty, obviously from the affect of the drug. We hear wEvil and HFB discussing out of view, in the darkness.

HFB: Wy dunt we jst brain-scan hm?

wEvil: Oh, he will talk.

wEvil steps forwards into the light, but the view is still indistinct. daveb's head starts to drop to one side.

wEvil: He will talk.

daveb's view blacks out, along with ours.

Don't worry,  this is just a lull before the action-heavy storm ;):

INT. General Discussions. Day.

Fade from black. We open to find that all barriers are finally constructed. We raise the camera to eye level with Thunder and Griffon standing on the platform. Thunder raises a hand, and we pan around to a back view of them. When we get there we see all of the forum members raise their heads, waiting for his command.

Thunder: Attention! Will all forum militia please step forth to the front of the room!

Numerous people emerge from the crowd.

Thunder: Thank you. Weapons will be handed out to you shortly. You are to acompany me to the source of the attacks. Griffon?

Griffon steps forth and clears his throut.

Griffon: Erm, thank you, Thunder. By extrapolating the time and placing of the attacks, we have determened that the source is the Technological Superiority forums.

Murmering can be heard from the crowd. People begin to shift about.[i/]

Griffon: Forum militia, please report to the briefing room. Thank you.

Fade to black

INT. Militia Briefing room.


Fade from black. We open from a cieling view of the room. This time, there are over 20 people at the table. Others can be seen standing in the shadows. Suddenly, a door swooshes open, and out steps Thunder, along with Griffon.

Thunder: (Takes seat) Alright people, we don't have a lot of time, so I'm going to cut to the chase. As you very well know, something is working it's way up from the Tech Sup forums. Judging from very reliable data, the Freespace MODing forum is next. Maeglamor, that's where you come in. Take a squad of 10 down there to protect it.

Maeglamor: Only ten?

Thunder: You won't need any more than that, but I'll tell you why later. CP5670?

CP5670 looks up. A bottle of rum is sitting next to him. Thunder frowns. We cut to a camera view beside Thunder's arm.

Thunder: Ummmmm...CP?

CP5670: Blip, whiiiir, zip-pop?

Thunder: Please, don't drink now.

CP5670: Boink!

Thunder: Alright, you're going to take another squad of 10 to the Freespace Source code forum. Secure it, and don't let anything get past.

CP5670: Zip-Zop, poink!

Thunder: Now, Thorn, I need you to take a squad of 20...

Thorn: Why that many, sir?

Thunder: Because you're going to lead a strike at an already-controlled area. You're going to go in through the Third Twighlight forum, and capture it, so that we can get at the enemy from behind.

Thorn: But how? We'd have to go through over 5 enemy areas to get there!

Thunder: More on that later.

Suddenly, there is a knock at the door. Thunder wheels around. We follow his gaze with the camera.

Thunder: Identify!

We hear Carl grunt behind the door.

Thunder: Come. What is it you need, friend?

Carl hands Thunder a piece of paper. We can't see what the paper says. Hold current view.

Thunder: Who typed this for you? Skippy?

Carl shakes his head.

Thunder: Styxx?

Carl nods.

Thorn: (out of view) What is it?

Thunder: It seems to be a request that we allow him on the expedition into enemy territory...

Thorn: How did he know?

Thunder: (Grins) Admin privalages...

Thorn: Ahhhhhhhh.....

Thunder: (turns to face Carl) But what could you do?

Carl turns to a wall and raises a claw. He punches through the wall, and his 6-foot arm goes all the way through. We cut to a view just above his arm, and when he pulls it out, we see he still hasn't gone through the solid-metal wall. We cut to the back end of the table, looking directly at Thunder.

Thunder: (Gapes) I see...Well, you're in!

Maeglamor: (leans over table) Sorry to interrupt, sir, but you said you'd tell us why we need only ten men each?

Thunder: (Seemingly shakes himself out of a daze) Ahhh...yes. Kazan?

Kazan suddenly steps out of the shadows, and turns to face the group. His gaze clearly makes them uncomftorable.

Kazan: Due to recent advances in weapon technology, we have been able to create some types that were thought to be previously impossible. Our research has only been hurried when the Interplay agents arrived, as they seem to be immune to normal bullets.

A gasp goes through the crowd. They begin to talk loudly.

Kazan: However....(the crowd is still talking extremely loudly.) HOWEVER... (the crowd quiets down) We have managed to create, you'll like this, Unidan.

A figure at the end of the table nods.

Kazan: We have succeded in creating the first man-portable ion cannon!

Unidan jumps up and lets out a whoop of joy.

Unidan: My dream has come true!

Chuckles go around the table. Unidan looks around, surprised.

Unidan: What? (he sits back down.)

Kazan: (Chuckles) We also have created a new type of bullet. It's the same caliber as your normal one, but due to the insane amounts of explosives that WMCoolmon has managed to stuff into it, it's about as powerful as a howizter. Three of each will be issued to your squads.

Thunder: Thank you, Kazan. The squads will be divided into Red, Blue, and Gold. Red gaurds the Freespace Moding forum, while Blue gaurds the Source code forum. Gold, you're the one that's going in.

Thorn: But...?

Thunder: Ahhh...yes, the way you get in there, right?

Thorn nods.

Thunder: I'm really not supposed to tell you these except in dire emergencies.

Everyone in the room coughs.

Thunder: (Smiles) But I think this counts. Anyways, we admins have special...privalages. We are allowed to use secret passageways that can only be unlocked using a special keycode.

Thorn: Then why don't we go right to the tech sup forum?

Thunder: They seem to have weilded them shut. This suggests that they have an admin onboard. I've done a roal call, and the only person missing is Black Ace, which means he's probably allied with them, so we'll have to watch out for sneak attacks.

Squad Leaders: Roger.

Thunder: Alright, let's do it people. Suit up!

Cut to black as the attendees begin to file out.

Yeah... I should start making more again. I've had writers block for a while. Also nowadays, I get a little scared when I make a new one with the thought "Will this be as funny as the last one? Will they all think I've lost my edge if it isn't? Have I jsut been lucky?" running through my head. :D And when things you make are in demand, yeah its a great feeling, but in the end it just becomes daunting when youo always try and keep it good and/or make it better. I think Unknown Target knows what I'm talking about. :D
Title: Just another day at HLP...
Post by: Unknown Target on July 08, 2002, 05:22:18 pm
Lol! I do, I certainly, certainly do!

Anyways, here's the next one, sorry it took so long (is this part long enough for ya?:D):

INT. Forum Militia Ready Room. Day.

Fade from black. We pan up and rotate from the floor as we do so. From our viewpoint, we can see numerous members of the defense force getting ready for the upcoming battle. We see Thorn painting a large Fleet Command symbol from Homeworld on the front of his vest. CP5670 opens up his locker and pulls out a large gun that is bigger than he is, replete with swinging ammo belt. darkage is off in the corner, polishing a large sword. Maeglamor is busy discussing battle tactics with Thunder. Griffon is handing out the new weapons.

Griffon: Unidan!

Uni: Yea?

Griffon: I've got that new ion cannon for you...

Uni: Really? GimmeGimmeGimme.

We see Griffon behind himself and pull a huge gun out of a bright red sack.

Griffon: Here you go young man. Next!

The forum members continue to file forward to recieve their weapons. Suddenly, the door swings open, and everybody stops what they're doing to see who the new arrival is. It is...RKIF-DragonClaw.

RKIF: Thought you guys could use some help on this one, so I brought in some vets.

From behind him emerge Gortef, Zeronet, and venom2506 appear. Thunder walks up to them all, arms waving.

Thunder: DragonClaw, it's good to see you, but these guys...they can't go out! They're supposed to be in the hospital, being monitored!

We follow Gortef as he walks around the room, and stops. He reaches into a laundry basket and pulls out his vest. It has three bullet holes in it. He shakes the vest, and out fall the bullets. He turns to face Thunder, and we cut to a view also looking at Thunder and the other three men.

Gortef: You didn't really expect us to stay in there, did you Thunder?

venom: Yea, seriously! I mean, the nurses were cute, but they made us **** in these little pans!

Zeronet: (nods) Besides, sir, being monitored for what?

Thunder: For anything! You know the rules: Any soldier who has come within close proximity to any enemy must be monitored for signs of bacterial infection, and/or chemical agents, for at least 48 hours!

venom: Relaaaaax, Thunder. We made sure we didn't come down with anything before we left.

We follow him with the camera as he also walks over to his locker. He dials in the combination, and tries to open the door, which doesn't budge. He sighs and gives it a football-athlete kick. It blips and pops open. He turns to face Thunder.

venom: Besides, you didn't think we'd let you have all the fun, did you?

We cut to black.

INT.Third Twighlight Command Center. Day.

Fade from black. We begin zooming into a platform overlooking a huge construction effort. The platform resembeles a ship's bridge in design, if not in instrumentation. We see two figures are talking inside of it. We continute to zoom in, and eventually stop. One of the figures is PhReAk. He looks down at the blinking display in front of him. He suddenly stands up straight and turns to face the other figure, who we realize is HemroidFrogButt. We cut to an over-the-sholder view of HemroidFrogButt as they begin to speak.

PH: Sire!

HFB: (Still gazing at the construction effort out the window) Ys, what is it, PhReAk?

PH: Sire, we've picked up something on our motion scanners!

HFB: (Snaps his view to PhReAk) Wat? Are yu sur!?

PH: Yes, sire, intermenent contact. Exact coordinates are unknown, but whatever they are, they're in the southern sector.

HFB jogs towards him, and knocks him out of the way so that he can see the display clearly. HFB mutters under breath as he stares at the console. Suddenly, he stands up, and regains his posture.

HFB: (Smoothing his cloak) Ys...yes, I se. Set gard patrls on hiyest alert!

PH: (Salutes crisply) Yes, sire!

We cut to:

INT. Third Twighlight, Southern Sector, admin tunnels. Day.

We see a long line of marines walking through a barely lit tunnel. Beams of light are waving back and forth as the marines turn their heads to scope out their environment. We can only identify a few of them, as the outline of their weapons and their hushed voices give them away.

darkage: The admins actually use these tunnels?

RKIF DragonClaw: I don't think so, the cobwebs suggest that the radiometr--

darkage: Oh shut up, Mr. Science!

RKIF: Hey, at least I'm not the winer!

Suddenly Thorn turns his head around to look at them both.

Thorn: Both of you, shut up!

They walk a little farther, and suddenly we hear a loud thunk. Thorn stumbles back a little ways, into the outstretched arms of the two.

Thorn: (Rubs head) Well, I think I've found the end of the tunnel, so to speak.

He slowly reaches out for the handle. We cut to a close up, side-view of the handle and his hand reaching ever closer to the handle. We cut to a view of his foot, and see it slip on a particularly smooth part of the floor. We cut back to the previous view of his hand, and see it grab the doorknob for support, pulling it downwards and opening the door. We cut to an over-the-sholder view of him. Scrambling backwards, Thorn kicks out at the door to open it, and regains his foothold. Standing warily up again, he motions for the squad to follow him. We cut to an over-the-shoulder view of about the third man in line, and lock the camera. They slowly walk out of the doorway, moving rifles up and down, checking for contacts. We see numerous bodies of the soldiers move by our viewpoint. We cut to a worm's-eye view of Thorn, as he signals for the squad to halt. He looks around. Suddenly, a bullet pings off the floor near his foot. We snap the camera around as he looks for the shooter. They're hiding behind large construction machinery.

Thorn: Get down! Everybody, take cover! Split into your assigned groups!

We cut to a normal view, and see everyone scatter towards whatever shelter they can find. Bullets start pinging all around them. We cut to DragonClaw and darkage, sitting behind a bunch of barrels.

darkage: ****, what're we gonna do?

Dragon: (ducks as a bullet ricoches just inches from his head) How the hell am I supposed to know?!

darkage: Ok, then it's up to me to make the plan!

He hunkers down behind the crates, and slaps the side of his head, holding his hand there. While Dragon is intermentanly firing off rounds atthe enemy, darkage starts to radio a broadcast. Between weapon fire, we can hear what he's sayng.

darkage: Thorn!

Gunfire interupts him.

darkage: Th-Thorn! Hi! What the hell do we do?

Gunfire goes off again.

darkage: What? Ok...roger that! I'm relaying it now. (He starts typing something onto a wrist-mounted keypad)

Upon hearing this, DragonClaw gets down on his knees, and turns to face darkage

Dragon: Well? Whadda we do?

We cut to CP5670 and venom, who are going on full auto behind a stack of crates. CP5670's gun is so big, he has to rest it on one of the crates, while venom is trying out the new-model grenade ammo. Suddenly, he turns away and touches the communicator in his helmet.

venom: Alright, CP, I got it!

CP5670: Bork?

venom: The plan is for me and you to lay down surpressing fire, while darkage and Dragonclaw engage in close-range combat. Everyone else is supposed to try a flanking maneuver.

CP: Tink-toink, zonk!

Venom hoists his gun back up onto the crates. He pulls back the hammer with a satisfying click.

Venom: Alright boys!

He takes aim.

Venom: Let's give 'em hell!

He opens fire, and swivels his gun back and forth. We cut to a view still focusing on them, but farther away, right next to where darkage and DragonClaw are hiding. They start to sneak out, and we follow them with the camera. Bullets are ricocheting all over the place, and the continious roar of gunfire can be heard. Slowly, they slip behind a stack of crates, and we pan the camera around to a front view of the two. DragonClaw nods to darkage, and he returns the gesture. We cut to a camera view that's right on the side of the crate they're hiding behind. We see him peak behind the crate, and look around. Suddenly, a muzzle gets pointed right at his face.

Dragon: (Grins and moves eyes up the barrel of the gun.) Uhhhh...hi!

He ducks behind the crates as a hail of bullets start to slice into it. We cut back to a close-up of his sholder, slightly out, so that we can see dark behind him.

Dragon: ShiiiIT!

He hunkers down and covers his head as the wood chips start to fall down on top of the pair. darkage calmly pulls down his visors and looks up at the splinters falling onto his head. He looks down at his vest, and pulls out a small flap. Inside are multiple grenades, each painted a different color. He picks a pink one with happy faces on it.

Dragon: (Seeing this) DOUBLE ****!

He hunkers down even further as darkage tosses it over his sholder, and also gets down. They're met by a huge explosion. We mute all sounds, and hear the voice of Thorn eminate from their headsets.

Headset: Go, go, go!

We return the sound to normal, and see the two rush out behind their cover, Dragon blasting away at all sundry, and darkage swinging his sword around like mad. We follow them with the camera as an enemy soldier pops out of the grenade smoke, and tries to bash Dragon's head in with his gun. Dragon blocks the blow with his own weapon, and delivers a kick the the chin, sending the enemy soldier flying backwards. We cut to darkage as the same thing happens. He blocks the blow with his sword, then moves it so that he sends the gaurds gun flying. He jumps up in the air, with his leg coming down into the soldier's head from above and to the side, darkage rotating his body to give it extra force. We pause time and do a Matrix-like 180-degree rotation. When we stop, we return time to normal, and darkage slams into the enemy.

DragonClaw: (looks at darkage and grins) I wish I could do that.

Dark grins back, and they begin to start battering their way through the seemingly endless enemies. We cut to Thorn and Gortef, standing in front of two big, double-blast doors. Gortef is busy testing out the new ion cannon.

Gortef: Are you sure we should do this, sir?

Thorn: (ducks) Yea, all I'm doing is locking the door using this DUMB-AS-AN-ASS door!

He punches a little vidscreen where a little animated teddy bear is dancing around.

Thorn: OW! ****!

Gortef: Very nice, sir, but what's to (pauses to fire off another shot) stop them from unlocking it?

Thorn: I'm locking it using an admin code that Thunder gave me, should take awhile to crack, so it gives us some time to bring in some reinforcements.

Gortef: (Fires another shot) Roger that.

Thorn: There! I got it! All teams, report in!

We hear all the teams gradually report in that the area is secure. Thorn smiles.

Thorn: Roger that. Unidan?

Unidan: Yes, sir?

Thorn: Get some help in here, we'll hold the fort until they arrive.

Unidan: Rogero!

We cut to black.

Oh, so it wasn't interesting before...? :p

Anyways, it seems that I might be able to type some more today, so I'm going to post this here set-up portion, but don't worry, the next part is going to come soon ;):

INT. Location Unkown, air shafts. Night.

Fade from black. We open to see three figures slowly crawling along a tunnel. Their flashlights wave back and forth as they crawl along. Suddenly, they start to speak, from their voices, we realise they are Corhellion, an0n and mikhael.

Cor: So...anybody know where we're going?

mikhael: Not a clue. I thought you knew?

Cor: Well....

an0n: (Turns head sharply to face him) What!? You mean you don't know!

Cor: I thought you did!

an0n: Never mind, let's just, uhhhh...keep following this tunnel.

Cor: No one knows!

Suddenly, we hear a creaking sound. The procession stops.

mik: Oh no, don't tell me...

We hear multiple loud snaps and cracks and the group sinks a little.

Cor: Yep.

mik: Shiiiiiiiiiit.

The thin alluminum snaps and the group falls straight through. We pan the camera up over the hole so that we're looking straight down into it. We can't make out anybody because of the dust, except some dark, blurred shapes. Slowly, as the dust clears, we see the three in various states of disrepair.

Cor: Status check, everyone.

mik: I'm fine here. Except that my leg feels kinda funny....

an0n: That's my leg! Arrrrh, get your ass outa my face!

mik: Oops! Sorry an0n!

Cor: Quite everyone, do you hear that?

an0n: Hear what?

mik: Yea, I hear it, too. Sounds like machinery.

Cor: I'm going to go and check it out. Stay put you guys.

mik: Roger.

an0n: Check.

We cut to an outside view of the door. Slowly, it creakes open. The barrel of a gun pokes through. Slowly, the rest of the soldier also moves through the opening. Something makes a loud noise offscreen, and he quickly points his gun at it. Relaxing and standing up straight again, he motions for the rest of the team to follow. They move through, and we pan the camera around. The other two stare up in amazement at the spectacle.

mik: Wooow...

an0n: Shiiit...

Numerous screens are flashing maps of each area of the board. Security camera views can also bee seen, and people moving back and forth in front of them.

mik: What is this place?

Cor: (off screen) It's the weapon room.

We snap over to him and follow him with the camera. He rests his gun down against the counter, and begins jogging back and forth,  adjusting knobs and levers. He talks to the other two while he's doing this.

Cor: (slightly out of breath) One of you...get on the horn with...Shrike. Tell him to get Windrunner. I think...he was...in charge of forum security. Tell him...that we need guidance...on how to fix this...****. Whoooo!

an0n: Roger that, I'll do it.

mik: So what do I do, sir?

A console sparks in front of Cor as he's doing some work on it.

Cor: Ow!

He pulls his hand away and starts to shake it. Turning to face mikhael he nods at the offender.

Cor: That should answer your question.

mik: I see...

He gets down on his back and crawls under the desk. Pulling out a small compartment, he gets to work.

an0n: (Off-screen) ****! Radio's fried! I'm gonna have to jury rig something for an antennae, so we can use our headsets.

We snap over to him. He looks around.

an0n: Anybody got any ideas?

When no one replies, he nods to himself, and begins to search around the room. We follow him with the camera.

an0n: Looks like we're going to be wrecking a couple things then. Anybody know any good jokes?

We cut to black.

INT. General Discussions. Day.

We open to see numerous people working on our own Construction effort. Guns can be seen rolling off the an assembly line, and Dark_4ce is drilling newbies off in a corner. We cut to a front and above view of the whole operation. Dark is pacing back and forth in front of them.

Dark: You maggots! You disgust me! I outgha just send the whole lot of you to the trash compactor right now!

One of the newbies starts to shift uncomftorably. He turns to whisper to another member. We cut to a side view of the two, and when Dark_4ce spies them, he heads right over. He gets in the newbies face and starts to yell at him, spitballs flying.

Dark: (Shouting incredibly) Oh! So you don't think what I'm saying applies to you, does it? Well, let me tell you one thing, you rotten little pu-

A hand taps him on the sholder. Dark turns around, and we pan around to an over-the-sholder view. It turns out that the hand belongs to vadar 1. Dark salutes crisply.

Dark: Yes sir?

vadar: Relax, I think you're taking this training a little too seriously.

Dark: Sorry, I guess I've been watching a little too much Full Metal Jacket, sir.

vadar: (Chuckles) Don't worry about it. Anyways, it seems that you're little posse here might get some combat experience after all.

Dark: Excuse me, sir?

vadar: (hands him an envelope) Red and Blue are going to reinforce our main battle group.

Dark: I thought that they were on gaurd duty in the forums...?

vadar: Not anymore, they're going to meet the enemy. It's you that's on gaurd duty now, captain.

Dark: (Salutes again) Yes, sir!

We fade to black.

Never mind. I'm just too busy to write another part today:(. You see, my campaign has been lagging for awhile, so I've decided to devote all my available time to it for a couple days.

(BTW, Thunder, not sure if you could, but until I'm able to sit down and write a long one, could you put this as a sticky, so when I actually sit down to write, I'm not bumping a topic that's on the third page;))
Title: Just another day at HLP...
Post by: Mr. Vega on July 10, 2002, 05:58:27 pm
This also needs to be stickied. Otherwise this just a bump-up thread. Sorry.

Like I said: I have to take a break for awhile. I need to do stuff fore my campaign, and Infested just assigned something for me to do in his. I asked if this could be put as a sticky (so it's not at the back of everything, and I forget about it, as well as most of you), for when I eventually (I will, don't worry;)) have enough time to get some more parts put it.

Are you happy now?

INT. Temp Mechanics. Day.

Fade from black. We open to a bird's-eye-view of the entire room. The admin tunnel's door is banging back and forth, still open, and people can be seen milling around, re-calibrating weapons, etc. Groups of people are walking out of the tunnel and settling down. Two figures walk through the entire establishment. They are speaking, and we hear them sort of in a voice-over style. When we hear them, we recognize them as Thorn and Maeglamor. We follow them with the camera.

Thorn: Thanks for the help, but we were expecting the newbies. Whose gaurding the forum now?

Maeg: The newbies, Shrike had us transfered down here. He thought you guyscould use some more...experienced help.

Thorn: (chuckles) That we do. Where's CP5670 and his squad?

Maeg: On their way, but CP says he's gonna be late. Gotta crunch some figures.

Thorn: What could be more important to this? (Gestures towards the rest of the room.)

Maeg: Well, apparantly, he's computing how badly his girlfriend will trash his car after he tells her that he really is not Dave.

Thorn: Ouch. That is pretty serious. Well, we're going to attack in a couple minutes, so let's get everything set.

Maeg: Alright, let's give 'em something to write down in the books.

They give each other high fives, and walk away to their respective squads. Cut to:

INT. Weapon Control Room. Day.

We pan around the room. mikhael is fiddling with something, Corhellion is watching the monitors, and an0n is hunched over moving all around the room hurridly. Suddenly, he stands up straight and slaps his head.

an0n: Of course!

His other two companions snap towards him to see what he's talking about. In the meantime, he's running over to his weapon, and begins to dismantle it. We follow him with the camera and pan around so that we're looking from a 60-degree angle. Corhellion is standing behind him, while mikhael is still trying to fix a stubborn component. It sparks and he murmers a string of omens.

Cor: Ummmm....buddy, mind filling us in?

an0n: Well, remember...

He grunts as he pulls a particularly stubborn piece apart.

an0n: ...how in weapon training class, they said that each gun had a transfuser rod in it?

Suddenly, he pulls reaches inside the molested mass of metal and pulls out a long metal rod.

Cor: Yea, it's to transfer the energy from the charger to the cycler. I still don't see your point.

an0n runs over to the radio station and begins to pull it apart, until he comes to the busted antennae/transmitter. As he works, he explains to the two what he's doing.

an0n: Well, if it's made out of the metal...(pauses to adjust something)...that I think it is, it can also conduct radio frequencies and send them out over a very large distance...

mikhael stands up in the background and dusts himself off. He glances back behind him at his handiwork, and proceeds to speak:

mik: I see what you're saying! If it can do that, we can jury-rig it to the radio, and hopefully broadcast!

an0n: Right, now, let's see, ummm, how did they teach us to remember how to do this?

Cor: (Obviously lost in what's going on) Oh, I at least remember that: the leg wire is connected to the, shin wire, the shin wire is connected to the, live wire, the--

mik and [/b]an0n[/b] look back at him.

Cor: What???

an0n sighs and gets back to his work. mik shakes his head and proceeds to adjust some knobs and buttons on the console.

Cor: What???

Suddenly, an0n gives a yelp, and Shrike appears on the monitor.

Shrike: We thought you guys were dead! What happened!

Corhellion runs over and nudges an0n out of the way.

Cor: No time to explain, Shrike. Just get us to Windrunner.

Shrike: Check, hold on...

An image of Windrunner appears on the screen.

Wind: What?

As Corhellion explains the situation, we fade to black.

INT. Temp Mechanics. Day.

We open to the same view as last time, except now everyone is standing in front of the main doors. We cut to a soldier's perspective view, and can see Thorn and Maeglamor fiddling with the lock.

Thorn: Now let's see...was it two, no three turns to the le-or was it right?

Gortef: You forgot the code?!

Thorn: No, no, this is a temporrary setback, ummmm...now was it left or right?

Maeg: (Chuckles) Thunder thought this might happen. It's right.

Thorn: I knew that.

Glances are exchanged in the crowd.

Thorn: I knew that!

Maeg: (Becomes very serious) All right, people, get ready. Thorn?

Thorn: Check. Ready...set...

A click is heard, and the door slams open.

Thorn: And kick some ass!!!!!!!

A hail of bullets erupt from the door, soldiers are cut down left and right. Shouts and curses can be heard. We're still in teh soldier's-POV as we erupt through the door. Suddenly, in front of us, dark shapes begin to emerge. We look to the left as venom2506 shouts out:

venom: Agents! Watch out everybody! Switch to the big guns!

Unidan Charges forth through the crowd and bursts through the front. He gets down on one knee and begins to blast away with his ion cannon. Venom is busy giving the enemy a lesson in pyrotechnics, and everyone else is just blasting away at all sundry. Suddenly, the enemy stops firing, and begins to retreat. We turn our "head" to the left, and hear Zeronet exlaim to a fellow soldier:

Zeronet: Hey, I think we got 'em on the run!

Suddenly, a loud screeching is heard, and a large footsteps. From around a bend, a man in a giant, mechanized, HAZMAT suit steps forth. More walk out from behind him.

Lead Figure: Hello marines. How lucky of you to have gotten this far....

A murmer sweeps through the crowd. Suddenly, we hear Thorn gasp aloud.

Thorn: That voice...it's Alpha_One!

More gasps can be heard.

Figure (Alpha_One): Ahhhhhhh....correct you are my dear, dear friend. Now, of course, you and your punt freinds will be annhilated.

We cut to:

INT. Freespace MODing. Day.

We open to see an agitated crowd, all pointing their collective guns at the main blast doors. Thumping can be heard outside. The group is getting very agitated. They begin to squirm. Suddenly, the thumping stops. The group exchange nervous glances. There is a huge explosion, and the door flys backwards. The marines yell a war cry and let loose. We cut to a soldier's POV. Bullets are zining past. Cut to slow-mo. Now the bullets are going past, Matrix-style. They're pinging around the soldies, and constant weapon fire can be heard. Cut to normal motion as a giant ion beam slices forth through the mess and obliterates a large section of the enemy. We cut back to:

INT. Passageway between TechSup and TemMechanics forums. Day.

Continuos weapon fire can be heard. Mecha suits and dead bodies litter the floor. Orders can be heard, as they are streaming from the mouths of the commanders. We cut to darkage tangling with one of the suits, sword drawn. He swings and the blow is parried by the mecha's arm. The other comes in and slams him in the chest. He goes flying back into the wall and slumps down. A huge hole is evident where he hit. We cut to a view of Maeglamor and Alpha_One going toe-to-toe. A huge mech is lying in the background, it's pilot straps open, and a large hole in it's leg. It is obviously Alpha's. As the two are exchanging blows, they twist and turn, firing punches at one-another, blocking and swiping. Maeglamor lets loose a slide kick, trying to trip his advisary. But Alpha jumps upwards, and seems to hang in mid-air for a few seconds. He comes down with his feet, trying to crush Maeg's head, but he swiftly rolls away and gets up. We cut back to Freespace MODing. Numerous dead bodies are hanging over the barricades, as a seemingly endless stream of enemies continues to pour forth through the passages, Darkage is involved in a fight with an agent, as the agent uses his arm, and he uses his spent gun, both as swords. Parry, block, parry. The agent jumps upwards, and we follow him up with the camera. He flips over and lands beside Darkage, and swipes at him with his arm. Dark twists his torso around and blocks it deftly. We cut to:

INT. Weapon Control Room. Day.

Corhellion is obviously stressed, as he is looking at the monitor which assigned to the Freespace MODing forum. He turns to face mikhael.

Cor: Almost done?

mik: Almost, hold on...there! But I can only get one system up and running, so which room is it going to be?

Cor: Initiate the automated defences in the Freespace MODing forum, hurry!

mik: Roger!

We cut to Freespace MODing. The enemy obviously is winning, and the weak defending force is being pushed ever farth backwards. Suddenly, a hole opens up in the cieling, and a large, double-barreled cannon pops out. A loud cheer goes through the defending party, as the cannons begin to cut through the enemy swarms. Slowly, they are the ones that begin to retreat, as the newbies follow up with a double-whammy, firing their weapons off at anything that isn't on their side. We cut to:

INT. Corridors. Day.

The good guys are winning here, as is evident by the masses of enemy bodies laying on the floor. However, Alpha_One and Maeglamor are still going at it, and are moving unevenly about the surrounding chaos. Cut to slow-mo as they perform amazing feats of acrobatics, until they finally settle over darkage's limp form. Cut to normal speed as Maeg bends over to pick up the sword lying by his hand, and stabs it through Alpha_One's heart. All we register on his face is shock as he grips the sword, and slides off the end, slumping to the floor in a dead heap. Maeg stands back up and drops the sword on the ground with a resounding clatter. The sounds of weapon fire in the background has ceased, and a resounding cheer goes up. Maeglamor bends back down over darkage's form, and starts to tap him on the cheek.

Maeg: Come on, speak to me, man! You OK?

darkage: Ow, that smarts!

Maeg: (Laughs, and hoists him up) Let's go, man....

We fade to black.

INT. Temporary Forum Control Room. Day.

Fade from black. We open to see numerous forum members rushing back and forth, carrying papers and shouting out reports. We pan around the room,
eventually stopping on the form of Windrunner, huddled over his workstation, giving directions to Corhellion and his crew. We continue to pan, and now stop on Delphinia, who is busy
recieving status updates. Suddenly, the door swings open behind her, and out steps Shrike. Delphinia hears the door open and whirls around in her chair. Shrike walks over to her, and leans over her sholder.


Shrike: Status update on the squads, Delphinia.

Delphinia: Sir, all squads have taken heavy casualties. Red, Blue, and Gold encountered some heavy resistance from some mechanoids, but I hear they handled it, albeit with an astounding amount of losses.

Shrike: And the newbies?

Delphinia: Still under fire, sir, but thanks to Windrunner's efforts...

She jerks a thumb behind her in Windrunner's direction

Del: Corhellion and his posse managed to get the automated defenses running in that sector, so the newbs shouldn't have any trouble holding the enemy back. But sir...

Shrike: (Nods) Yes?

Del: We got a report from Maeglamor. It seems that, during the fighting, he encountered a Alpha One. I was told you would know him...?

Shrike: (Suddenly goes into a daze, and moans out) Alpha One....?

Del: Yes sir. He also wanted me to tell you that he managed to eliminate him. However, he is also asking for additional forces.

Shrike whirls around. We cut to a table-top view of an especially large HLP Hammer of Justice lying on a console. Shrike's hand comes out of the side of the screen and picks it up. He continues walking, and we can eventually see his back as he is walking away.

Shrike: (Back still turned) Tell him Thunder, Griffon, and I are heading down there right now. We'll be there in about...

We cut to:

INT. Tech Sup Forum Control Room. Day.

We cut to see an arm with a watch on it, and we hear a voice. It's wEvil.

wEvil:...10 minutes.

We pan around so that we are up against the glass of the control room. wEvil, numerous subordinates, and Hemroid Frog Butt are all standing together and discussing.

wEvil: We'll have that long to fortify our inner and outer defenses. However, thanks to Alpha One getting himself killed, we'll have to use someone else as a host for the Interplay hive mind...

HFB raises a hand

wEvil: Yes, what is it?

HFB: Sire, wy dont we jst mind wipe one of the prisonrs and use one of thm?

wEvil: Excellent idea! But who should it be...?

He begins to pace, obviously in deep thought. Suddenly, he snaps upwards. He has obviously decided.

wEvil: Hemroid!

HFB: Yes, sire?

wEvil: Bring me...(we cut to a close-up of his eyes)...daveb.

We cut to black.

INT. Temporal Mechanics. Day.

We fade from black, to open up on a view of total decimation. Small fires can be heard crackling in the distance. Numerous bodies, both enemy and friendly, are lying scattered on the floor. Some members of the squad are gingerly walking through the mess, stooping down at random intervales to take something off of the dead bodies. We cut to a close-up
of this grim procession. Eventually, we realize that the objects are actually dog tags. We cut to a frontal view of Maeglamor. He walks up to Alpha_One's dead body and gives it a little kick. Thorn jogs up behind him. Maeglamor turns to talk to him. In the background, we see the entrance to the now closed admin tunnel.


Thorn: Hey, Maeglamor.

Maeg: Oh, hey Thorn. How much more time?

Thorn: (Glances down at his watch) Should be arriving any minute now. Something bugging you, man?

Maeg: Hm? Oh, it's nothing.

He gives Thorn a sheepish grin.

Thorn: Oh, please. I know you better than that. Seriously, what's up?

Maeg: Oh, I was just thinking.

Thorn: C'mon, about whaaaaaaaaaat????

Maeg: This Alpha and I were best buds in MODing school. He was actually nice back then.

He chuckles.

Maeg: Ahhh, yes, dreams, dreams, dreams. He dreamt of becoming a great MODer, and I dreamt of becoming a forum moderator. Sadly, only one of us achieved those dreams.

Suddenly, the admin tunnel slams open, and the pair turn to look. Out steps Shrike, Thunder, and Griffon. They are each decked out in black battle uniforms, and Thunder is replete with a flowing cape and lightsaber. Griffon is chewing a cigar, and has a mingun longer than he is, and Shrike has a HLP Hammer of Justice so big, it would frighten small children.
Thorn turns back to face Maeglamor. He grins.


Thorn: Ahh, well, you win some, you lose some, but, for right now? Let's just go kick some ass.

They both break out laughing, and turn their backs to the camera, as they begin to walk away. We move the camera upwards, and fade to black.

INT. Interoggation Room. Day.

We fade from black, and the room is still the same: all black, with the center lit by an overhanging light. But this time, we see daveb strapped to a large table, with a very complex and ominous machine by his head. We rotate around the room, always focused on the table and it's occupant. daveb is obviously straining against the restraints around his arms and legs. Suddenly, wEvil can be heard.

wEvil: Ahhh...yes, hello again, daveb.

daveb Seems to be following him with his eyes.

daveb: (Pissed-off tone) What do you want, and why?

wEvil: So many questions, so little time.

We continue to rotate.

wEvil: Well, you might as well know. You see, we're going to erase your very being, and make you our little puppet.

daveb snarls.

wEvil: I am very sorry we had to do it to you, but, unfortunately, all our other...patients, have become, oh, how do you say it? Vegetables.

He laughs. Suddenly, the machine hums to life, and a scanner is situated over daveb's head. Lines of light begin to go up and down over his head. We cut to a close up of a single eye.

wEvil: (Off-screen) Good-bye, daveb.

Suddenly, daveb's eye goes wide, and stays that way for a few seconds. Then it relaxes and closes. wEvil begins to laugh madly, as we fade to black.

Post by: Unknown Target on July 28, 2002, 12:23:32 pm
This one is short, but it's really only to keep you from killing me...;)


INT. Temporal Mechanics. Day.

Fade from black. We open to see the entire HLPBB Milita at ease in military-parade style fasion. We pan around and see Thunder pacing back and forth in front of them.

Thunder: Men....You are about to go through that tunnel, and meet hell.

An uneasy shifting goes through the crowd.

Thunder: I won't try to sugercoat it for you. That stuff is for institutions like Delta Force. You are the Hard Light Productions Milita. The elite of the elite. You will triumph over this threat.

At this point he stops in front of them, and turns to face them all.

Thunder: Make us proud, soldiers.

Suddenly, the admin tunnel door blasts open behind them. We rotate our camera to face it in unison with the soldier's heads. Numerous weapons cocking can be heard. We cut to a view of the door,
about 10 feet away, and slowly begin to zoom in. We can't see anything, because it's totally dark behind the door frame, and the mist from the explosion is very obscuring. Cut to a on-the-wall view of the right-hand side of the door.
A giant robotic hand grips the doorway. We cut to a view of the soldiers, and see that they are very tensed. We cut back to the previous view. Another hand grips the other side of the door. Slowly, the shape of the body is pulled through. In the cockpit, we can see...
Kazan. We cut back to a view of Shrike, lifting his head from the crowd of other soldiers, and relaxing his weapon. The other's do the same.


Shrike: **** Kazan, we nearly shot you!

Kazan: I knew you wouldn't, though.

Shrike gives him a menacing look.

Shrike what are you doing down here, anyways.

Kazan: I thought you might need some help, so I, erm...borrowed, this mecha, to come down here, and give you some.

Shrike: Well, it's appreciated. We were just about to move out, would you like  to join us?

Kazan: (Grins) Certainly...

Screen-Wipe to:

INT. Technological Superiority Forum Control Room. Day.

We open to see wEvil standing in front of a doorway. This doorway also shrouds what lies beyond it in black. Suddenly, Hemroid Frogg Butt's voice eminates from the gloom.

HFB: Would you like to see him now, sire?

E: Yes...bring him in.

HFB: As you wish...

Sounds of clothes shuffling can be heard, and from the gloom steps...daveb.

E: Ahhhh....yes, my good buddy, daveb. I suspect your stay was a good one?

daveb only gives him a stoic glare.

E: (Unfased) Yes, yes, I see. (Chuckles.) If you would, please?

He indicates an odd contraption on a desk. It is the same headgear that Alpha_One wore. daveb looks at wEvil. Then at the contraption. He pauses a couple seconds before going to it. The audience wonders if he is really under wEvil's control. Suddenly, he walks over and fits the headgear
over his head. He turns to face wEvil again.


wEvil: Yesssss....excellent. It's all coming together now.... daveb!

daveb gives a crisp salute.

wEvil: Tell the agents that thier former master was...elimanated, and that I am transfering all control to you now.

daveb gives a nod, and goes into a meditation for a few seconds. He nods again.

wEvil: Now then, tell them to gaurd and barricade the main entrance from Technological Superiority, as we are expecting some...guests....

He starts to laugh evily, and as we fade to black, and his laugh fades with us.

INT. Technological Superiority Tunnel. Day.

Fade from black. The tunnel is still barely lit, but we can see the forms of a mass of soldiers walking through it. We cut to a front-view of them, in military parade fasion. All of them are wearing a face that looks like they are seriously pissed. We cut to a side-view of Thunder and Shrike, talking to each other.

Thunder: Alright, one more time: the plan is to split the squad into two...

Shrike nods.

Thunder: The first part, Alpha team, goes around the front.

Shrike nods again.

Thunder: And Beta team is the actaul assault team, and they go around behind.

Shrike: Yes, and you'll be accompanying them, I'll go around the front with Alpha.

Thunder: Alright then, let's hop to it. The end of this tunnel should be right about...

We see two gigantic double doors. Off in the corner, there is a smaller set of doors.

Thunder: There. Alright, Shrike, what now?

Shrike: Go round up the troops, and take Beta through those smaller doors. Turn at the first right, keep going down, turn right again, and there it is, you can't miss it.

Thunder: Check.

He turns to face the troops gathered behind him. Suddenly, it seems as if he just noticed something as he turns his head to face Shrike.

Thunder: Ummm...Shrike?

Shrike: Yes, Thunder?

Thunder: Who gets Kazan.

Shrike: Oh, that'd be me.

Thunder: Oh, ok.

He turns to face the crowd, and as he starts to yell out names, we fade to black.

Post by: Unknown Target on July 30, 2002, 11:50:29 am
Here you go;) I think I should get some sort of special title for writing this, you know :D :p



INT. Technological Superiority. Day.

Fade from black. We open to see numerous agents, mech, and humans, setting up defensive positions around the main doorway. We zoom slowly inwards upon the door, until we come almost up against it. The door slowly opens, and we can hear numerous weapons cocking from the "bad guys'" side. We cut to a behind-the-back view of the entire assembaly.
The door opens up, adn we only get a few seconds of view time, but see nothing. Suddenly, the enemy team opens up, and the room beyond is filled with a hail of bullets, totally blo0cking out our view. The enemy continues firing until it's almost defening, and suddenly they stop, out of ammo. We cut back to a close-up of the doorway, and as the smoke clears, we come to the realization
that there is nothing in there. Suddenly, we hear numerous war cries from above and we snap the camera to look straight upwards. NUmerous figures begin falling towards us , doing death-defying flips. We cut to a front view of the top of the door, and see Shrike leap diagnolly across, spinning horizontally. We follow him down by moving the camera as he takes out two pistols and begins firing off at random. We cut to slow mo, and he seems to stop in mid-air. We pan the camera
360 continuos degrees around him, and his bullets are flying outwards, Matrix-style. Suddenly, we cut back to normal time, and he goes flying across the chasm, he hits the other side of the wall, and backflips off of it, eventually landing next to his comrades. Another loud thump is heard, as Kazan hits the floor behind them. They begin to open fire, and we cut to a soldier's POV in the enemy lines. We look to the left, an see numerous humans being cut down from the hail of bullets, and explosions are sending agents flying up and everywhere. Mechas are being
cut to pieces, quite literally, by the heavy cannon fire coming from Kazan's guns. We cut to a soldier's POV from Shrike's team, as they let out a whoop and begin to charge forth. By now, the enemy seems to have recovered it's senses, and returns fire. Soldiers are screaming out in pain as they are hit in various parts of their anatomy. Each side's bullets are now indestinguashible from each other. We cut to a view of Shrike, as he turns his back to the charge. Slapping one hand to his head and bending over slightly, he starts to speak. We cut to:


INT. Back Entrance to Tech Sup. Day.

Now another group of soldiers are walking slowly upwards through a dimly lit tunnel. We cut to the leader, Thunder, as he also bends over. We can hear his radio crackling:

Radio(Shrike): It's all yours now, Thunder, we ahve engaged the enemy, I repeat, we have engaged the enemy.

Thunder nods to himself, and turns his head to face the crowd. He twirles his finger in the air, and we hear numerous weapons cocking and powering up. They begin to move forward again. We cut to:

INT. Tech Sup Control Room. Day.

wEvil is sitting in a Captain Kirk-style chair, and sipping what appears to be a large mug of hot chocolate. Suddenly, Hemroid Frog Butt bursts through the door.

HFB: (Panting) Si-sire!

E: Yes, yes, what is it, Hemroid?

HFB: We hve engaged th-th enmy!

E: Of course, that was to be expected.

HFB: But sire!

E: (Annoyed) What!?

HFB: They are attacing from the reer!

E: How is that possible! How could they get over there!?

HFB: We dont knw! But theyr coming this way!

E: Scramble all available forces! Prepare for an attack!

We cut to a close-up of his eyes.

E: We're going to give them a thrashing they'll never forget!

Cut to black.

INT. Rear Entrance to Tech Sup. Day.

We open to see Thunder and his squad running up through what appears to be a supply depot. Crates and boxes are scattered everywhere. Random gunfire can be heard as the militia members find some enemy entrenchements. Suddenly, Thunder stops, and turns to face his comrades. They, too, also stop, and wait for what he has to say.

Thunder: My friends...we are about to--

A single gunshot rings out, and Thunder bends backwards from the waist. He lets out a grunt, and falls to his knees. From the crowd, Thorn runs forward to catch him. Bullets begin to rain down from all locations on the assembaly, but we stay focused on Thorn dragging Thunder away from the battle by his sholder harnesses. We follow him through the crowd of boarders, and numbers of them begin falling, before they finally find some cover and duck behind it, to return fire. We cut to an above-view of the two comrades. Thunder is resting on the floor, and Thorn is tending to him. We are rotating the camera, but keeping it in it's current postion.

Thorn: (Turns head to other boarders) Medic! Hey, we need a medic over here!

Thunder: (Weakely) No...need for that, my friend.

Thorn: But, you're hit! Bad, too, that sounded like a 50-caliber shot!

Thunder: (Grins) You know, I wear body armor like everyone else...

Thorn: Bu-But!

Thunder tries to get up again, but lets out a loud cry of pain and falls down again.

Thunder: Ok, so maybe I'm not A-1 Supa, but..go join your buddies. All I need is a gun.

Thorn nods and hands Thunder a large-looking pistol.

Thorn: Here you go...just remember-if you die on me, I'm going to kill you.

Thunder: (Chuckles) Hehe, yea...

As Thorn runs off, and starts barking out orders, we cut to a side view of Thunder's face. He starts to breathe deeply and slowly. Slowly, he shuts his eyes, and we fade to black.

I can do the scroller! :D

*Music plays*
The center of the screen starts sparkling; as the sparkles fade away, the HLP forum logo is revealed.
In silence, "32 days ago, in a forum far, far away..." fades in in green letters

*The tension in the audience can easily be sensed*
"HLP WARS" appears with a fanfare
*Cheers erupt from the audience*
EPISODE IV: A New Forum

   It is a period of flame wars. HLP members, striking from a "hidden" forum, have won their first flame war against the evil Galactic Coporation.
   During the flame war, HLP modders managed to obtain secret tutorials for the Corporation's ultimate weapon, the PaySpace, a popular space sim with enough cloaking devices to render an entire game useless.
   Pursued by the Corporation's redtaping lawyers, Project leader Thunder races home aboard his T3 line, custodian of the stolen tutorials that can save HLP's members and restore sensibility to the forum...


*The viewers again grow silent*

The camera pans down to reveal two ships fighting- a large Vasudan AWACS, which is being pursued a huge briefcase. Both are firing bullets that seem to move  in slow motion. Suddenly, a missile launches from the large briefcase and slams into the AWACS, disabling it and blasting the array to pieces. The Vasudan ship is drawn up towards the large briefcase, which is even now opening to receive the ship.

CUT to corridor of the ship

Several hardened forum members are in the corridor, obviously preparing for battle, checking their weapon gauges. Their look is clear- that of fear, and determination to do their duty-even if it means death. Then, movement near the door attracts their attention. A clipping error appears at the upper-left corner of the door and spreads to replace the entire doorway; with a flash, it disappears. The audience sees the first of the boarders.


HLP EXTRA #1: Nooobs!
N00btrooper 1: WHY WONT MY BEAMS FIRE!?!??!???
HLP EXTRA #1 falls to the deck, dead or unconscious
N00btrooper 2: WHATS THE SHIP LIMIT FOR?????????
HLP EXTRA #3 collapses
N00btrooper 1: HOW DO I USE BEAM-?
HLP EXTRA #2: Do the tutorial!
N00btrooper #1 stumbles back

I was bored, and in the mood for writing something...and the scroller got a little long :o :nervous:

A clipping error appears at the upper-left corner of the door and spreads to replace the entire doorway; with a flash, it disappears. The audience sees the first of the boarders.


HLP EXTRA #1: Nooobs!
N00btrooper 1: WHY WONT MY BEAMS FIRE!?!??!???
HLP EXTRA #1 falls to the deck, dead or unconscious
N00btrooper 2: WHATS THE SHIP LIMIT FOR?????????
HLP EXTRA #3 collapses
N00btrooper 1: HOW DO I USE BEAM-?
HLP EXTRA #2: Do the tutorial!
N00btrooper #1 stumbles back

I was bored, and in the mood for writing something...and the scroller got a little long :o :nervous:


I LOVE IT!

We pan the camera 360 continuos degrees around him, and his bullets are flying outwards, Matrix-style. Suddenly, we cut back to normal time, and he goes flying across the chasm, he hits the other side of the wall, and backflips off of it, eventually landing next to his comrades.
Bwah ha ha!  I have Matrix-Fu!

Wait till they see what I have in Nodewars.... The words 'pistol' and 'meson' come to mind. ;)

Srry about the delay. I really wanted to get this one out, though, because I took so long past the original date. So it probably sucks, is too short, etc.



Fade from black. We open to see our embatled Alpha team, who are currently locked in a major engagement, taking a beating. In the background, numerous members are lying dead or wounded. We cut to a close-up
of a soldier in the crowd, hacking his way through a seemingly impossible-to-beat mass of foes. He socks an enemy in the face, knocking him out, and then whirls around, taking out his pistol, shoving it into another foe's mouth. We cut to a close up of the figure's eyes. They look seriously pissed, and we cut to a close-up
of his mouth. It curls into a grin, and we hear a gunshot, followed by a spray of blood. We cut back to a normal, view, as he hacks his way through the swath of "bad guys," taking them out with shots from his pistol, and karate swipes to the throaght.  Eventually, he reaches Shrike, already embroiled in a fierce kung-fu battle with an enemy commander.
Shrike tries to land a blow to the commander's solarplexus, but he jerks backwards just in time, and let's loose with a Sunday punch to Shrike's chin. He gets knocked backwards, but recovers with a sumersault over his head, and finishes his foe off with a kick to the spinal cord. We rotate the camera to see our figure's awestruck face. Shrike spits out some blood, cowboy-style and wipes his chin.


Shrike: Oh, hey there hotsnoj.

hotsnoj: (recovers from shock) Oh, yea, hey there.

Suddenly, a enemy mecha looms over Shrike, seemingly appearing out of nowhere, and hotsnoj yells for him to get down, letting lose with a barrage of pistol fire to the mecha's chest. We cut to slow-mo, so that we can see the bullets moving, and cut to the bullet's POV. As the bullet moves into the mecha, we see that the outer layers of armor have already been pierced. The bullet continues through the last fiew layers, until it reaches a large tank.
On the tank is a large warning symbol, stating: WARING: Flammable contents! The bullet punctures the tank, and we cut to an outside view of the mecha, as it explodes in a fiery blast. Pieces are raining down upon the two embattled veterans, as they run away as fast as they can.


Shrike: (panting) So what was it you wanted to tell me???

hotsnoj: (also panting) Oh, nothing. Wait, oh yea, Thorn called, he says he's under heavy attack.

Shrike: Really? Anything else?

hotsnoj: Nope, that's it.

Shrike: Boy, I sure hope Thunder and his team go easy on them...

After this statement, we cut to:

INT. Back Entrance to Tech Sup. Day.

We open up to see an incredible amount of carnage, strewn upon the floor. Cannon fire can be heard, and so can the anguished screams of falling soldiers. We cut to see Carl whacking away at the enemy with his monstrous claws. He pins one up agains the wall and starts to *****-slap him. The pinnee is knocked unconcious, and Carl throws him into a crowd of assailants, pinning them all to the floor. Then, charging up his weapon as bullets ping off his heavily-armored body, he blasts away at enemies like a mad-shivan.
We then cut to Thorn, blasting away with an over-sized minigun. We then cut to a bird's-eye-view of the battle, and can see cannon fire flying back and forth, explosions rocking the scenery. A stray rocket finds it's way to an alcove of boarders, hiding behind a stack of crates. The boarders go flying, and the crates break into numerous pieces, sending shards over the crowd. We cut to a soldier's POVs, as the shards fly over us. We rotate the camera as if it were a soldier's head, and see Thorn standing on top of the dead body of a mecha suit, yelling out orders. Due to the battle, we can't hear him. We then cut to
to a view of Gortef, surrounded by a throng of foes. We rotate the camera around him, just outside of the circle of enemies. We cut to a close up of one of the enemy's guns. The hammer cocks backwards. We cut to a close-up of Gortef's eyes. We cut to the previous rotating camera view, except this time, we're inside the circle. They begin firing, and we cut to slow-mo. Gortef bends over, Matrix-style, and starts doing all sorts of impossible moves. In the background we see that the bullets he dodges impact on his other foes, cutting them down. After everyone of them except one is left we cut to normal time, as Gortef charges at him. We zoom in, and we reach his face, and we continue onwards, still looking at his body.
Gortef winds up, and smacks him down with a Roundhouse punch. He stands up, and wipes his brow.


Gortef: Too easy...

We cut to black.

No, no! Now that Shrike started the thread, he should be the one writing the next parts!:D


BTW, don't expect another part for a little while, my creative juices are frozen, so to speak, and I struggled to get that one out. This explains why there was no plot advancement in that last part.

Anyone ever play Dungeon Siege? It's gotten me hooked, that's why the story updates have slowed. Don't worry, though. Next part should be up tommorow or the day after.

Post by: Thor on August 07, 2002, 09:39:48 pm
Yes, Dungeon Seige rocks!  But unfortunately, I got sidetracked with a little campaign idea, so I've yet to finish.  Maybe I'll play some more latter.  I should mention that I don't usually play RPG's, there to confusing, but Dungeon Siege just made sense to me.  But I'm too much of a space jockey to give in to the likes of Everquest.  Pay.... Each month?  For something I just spent $60 on?  @#^#& &!&$ &$^& *$&  NO!

Good work, by the way!

Post by: Unknown Target on August 09, 2002, 08:12:11 am
Two of these might go up today, but I'm not sure. We'll just play it by ear, but I think this one is good enough on it's on, lol ;)


Fade from black. We open to see a dead enemy soldier, lying on the ground. A foot comes down from off-screen and steps on his head. We pan up the

lag, and see Maeglamor, surveying the carnage. In the distance, darkage is polishing his sword. He looks up and walks over to Maeg.


darkage: Hey Maeglamor, whazzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzuuuuuuuuuuuuppppppppp!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Maeglamor: (Turns head to face him) You've got problems, you know that?

darkage: (Grins) Yep. So, when's Shrike gonna tell us that we can move out?

Maeglamor: Pretty soon. He says that we're just waiting for Corhellion and his crew to get the wep systems up in this section,--

We start to fade to:

INT. Forum Weapon Control room. Day.

Maeg: (From previous scene)---but it's taking awhile.

The room comes into full clarity now. We see Corhellion still monitoring the situation through the vid screens. kajorama is off fixing something

in a corner. an0n is on a chair, furiously typing on a keyboard. Suddenly, he lets out a trememndous shout.


an0n: THIS IS THE ****ING LAST STRAW!!!! DAMNIT!

Corhellion: (Turns to face him) What's wrong?

an0n: I tried to install some new gunnery software, but it gave me a ****ing blue screen of death!

He then leaps upon the desk and picks up the chair, and starts hammering at it.

Corhellion: an0n, wait, stop!

In between smashes, an0n lets loose some choice words.

an0n: Take---this---you---****ing---piece---of---****!---When---I---get---through---with---you...

Suddenly, the console hums to life, the blue screen disappears, and a little badly-animated dog appears on the screen. A speech bubble appears over his

head.


Bubble: Installation Complete.

an0n hops back down from the desk and wipes his brow. He turns to face his companions, now staring, wide-eyed, at him.

an0n: (Grins) See, I told you I would get it.

The other two roll their eyes and let out some long-winded groans, and get back to work. We cut to:

INT. Forward entrance to Tech Sup. Day.

We come back just in time to hear the room's weapon systems warming up. Numerous turreted guns start to pop out of the cieling. We cut to a floor view,

and see Shrike, standing among his counsels, look up and smile. He looks behind him at his troops, assembled and ready for battle. He truns forward

again, and waves his arm forward.


Shrike: Move out!

As a triumphent cry goes out among the rallied troops, we fade to:

INT. Back Entrance to Tech Sup. Day.


Fade from the previous scene. We open up to see the troops assembaling for their own march. Thorn is at the head of the pack, shouting out orders.



Thorn: C'mon, let's move it, people! Let's go, let's go, no stragglers here. Hey! Stay in a line!

Suddenly, a battered and worn soldier runs up from behind the crowd, out of a side door, behind the procession. Panting, he stumbles up to Thorn's feet.

Thorn looks down, startled. The group behind them stops.


Thorn: Su-tehp! I thought you were with Alpha group.

Su: (Panting) I..I was. Shrike...sent me...to...tell you. We...won. Are...advancing...now.

Thorn: Ok, so that means we'll have to watch our fire more carefully. Go and join our ranks for now, till we get there.

Su: Yes, sir!

Su-tehp stands up again. And Thorn is about to turn around, but, suddenly, it seems as if he just remembered something. He turns to face

Su-tehp again.


Thorn: Su?

Su: Sir?

Thorn: Why are you out of breath?

Su: Uhhhh....erm. I ran all the way down here, you know, around the forum, etc?

Thorn: Why didn't you use the areo-lift?

Su-tehp looks back over his sholder, and leans his body over backwards, so he can see the door he just came from. He then looks at an elavator-like

door right next to it.


Su: Uhh...I dunno. I thought, you know, it would be cooler if I was painting, and my clothes were torn. Like Braveheart!

Thorn rolls his eyes and turns his attention back to the route ahead.

Thorn: Let's go!

We fade to black, as the soldiers start to move out.

INT. Tech Sup Control Room. Day.
Fade from black. The scene here is one of surprising calmness. wEvil is standing in front of a row of consoles, daveb at his side. On the

videoscreen to their left, we can see that they are looking at Alpha team's advance, and on their right, Beta's advance. wEvil turns to daveb.


E: Well, it looks as if this is the end. Muster all of the Interplay ships around the HLP station, and begin firing sequence.

daveb nods.

E: Very well. Hemroid!

HFB: Ys, sre?

E: Prep Project Tango. I will be there shortly.

HFB: As you wish.

As he is turning to go, wEvil looks back over his sholder at Hemroid Frog Butt. We cut to a close-up of his eyes. They are in a viscious glare.

E: Oh, and Hemroid.

HFB: Ys?

E: I want you to be in the final defense of this sector. You already had your chance at immortality.

He walks away laughing madly, and we fade to black.

Whew! What do you guys think?

We fade from black, and open to see the long line of boarders from the Beta team trudging forwards towards the inevitable. We cut again to Alpha, doing

the same. Another cut, and this time, we come to where the evil battlements of wEvil are preparing for the final assault. The last cut brings us to

wEvil, standing in front of a console. On the screen is:


Screen: FORUM SELF-DESTRUCT
   PLEASE ENTER PASSWORD

A blinking cursor following it. wEvil starts to tap out at some keys, and hits enter.

Screen: DESTRUCTION SEQUENCE INITIATED:
   SILENT COUNTDOWN, 30:00 MINUTES.
   HAVE A NICE DAY.

Below this now we see a large smilie face. We cut back to wEvil, as he grins and starts to walk away. We overhear him muttering to himself.

wEvil: I love Linux.

We fade to black.

INT. Back Entrance to Tech Sup. Day.

We open to find the procession still marching. Suddenly, they stop, and we rotate the camera to look out in front of them to see what's wrong. It turns out

that it is two large, metallic, double-doors, barring their way. A nervous anticipation runs through the crowd as we finally realize that this is the entrance to

Technological Superiority. We cut to Thorn and Maeglamor, along with Tiara, decked out in high heels and a combat dress, looking

like something sent from God, all standing around a largish contraption set on a table.


Thorn: (Hits a button) Ok, we are here.

A 3D diagram of Tech Sup leapes out of the contraption. We can see the light waves coming from the base, each going to it's assigned point in the image.



Thorn: And we want to get...(hits another couple keys)...here.

A second dot appears on the slowly rotating image. From where it is, and the general shape of the image around it, we can tell that they want to get to the

control room.


Tiara: But that won't be easy, right? Not even Shrike and Thunder combined into some super-powerful, God-man, with big, bulking muscl-- (she looks around

at the stairs directed at her)--um, right. Yea. I meant that it, uhhh...won't be easy.

Thorn: (Chuckles) Exactly, that's why Shrike and his team are going in through the front (he hits some more buttons) here.

Another light appears, this time at the front of the image, near the forward entrance.

Thorn: (Smoothes jacket and stands straight up) Any questions...?

Maeglamor: Just one...what do you propose to do with all of these people? They are still HLP boarders, even if they dipped into the dark world of evil. But

there's still a place for them here. Just think about an0n. He's quite evil, but we still accept him.

Thorn: (Hoists his backpack onto his shoulder) We'll let them decide that.

He turns to face the crowd.

Thorn: Alright people, let's get these doors open, we're moving out!

A loud cheer goes up from the crowd, as they start to try and hammer the door down. We cut back to Maeglamor, as he sighs and packs up his gear.

He looks up, smiles, and begins to cheer too, running to go help in the effort. We cut to black.


We do the same thing as before, cutting to each team as they begin to start to hammer down the door. We then again cut to the now-prepared defenses of

Technological Superiority. Behind them all, we can see daveb, with his agents. Once again, we cut to wEvil, and stay there. He's standing

in front of a technician, and behind him we can see a smallish craft, only big enough to hold one person.


Technician: (In a real southern accent) Weeeeeeellllll....she's a-ready, sire, but ah'd like to run a few mer tests, ya see?

wEvil: I see...

He looks down at his watch, and we cut to his POV. From it we can see that he had a timer going, and there are 20 more minutes left on the clock.

wEvil: Well, run them if you must. I have a few things to take care of, anyway.

Tech: Aye, sire.

As wEvil turns, his cape billows behind him. We cut to a close-up of his eyes, and hear him mutter to himself.

wEvil: We will meet again, dear admin. Yes, we shall.

Fade to black.

INT. Front Entrance to Tech Sup. Day.

Fade from black. We open to see Shrike and his team burst through the great double-doors of the forum, even louder than before. War whoops soon

follow, as they charge inwards, with bullets zinging over their heads. A loud cry goes up from the crowd, as one of them finds it's mark. Still, they press

onwards, and the wounded soldier is pulled out of the stream of people. Above the chaos, we hear Shrike'sp/b] voice.


Shrike: OPEN FIRE!!!!

The one-sided sounds of the enemy's guns are suddenly drowned out by the roar of returning fire, coming from the attackers. Kazan can be seen

squishing enemies under his colosal feet, all the while blowing stuff up with his trememdous cannon. We cut to Shrike, blazing away with his gun. It

runs out of ammo, just as someone is about to pounce on top of him.


Shrike: ****!

He whirls the gun around in his hands, gripping it by the barrel, and giving a Babe-Ruth swing to the guy's face, sending him flying.

Shrike: Yea, baby!

He then tosses the gun on the ground and draws out the HLP Hammer of Justice, and leaps into a smaller part of the battle. We then cut to:

INT. Back Entrance to Tech Sup. Day.

We cut to a view of the door from the inside. Thumpings on it can be heard from outside. All of a sudden, they stop. Seconds tick by. Suddenly, the door

blasts towards the camera, and through it pour the forces of the HLP forum, all guns blazing. We cut to the trenches of the enemy, as bullets fly over them

like rain. They stand up and let out a yell, and begin to return fire. The two sides charge towards each other, and we cut to Tiara, wielding an

enormous axe. She lops off a few heads, and throws the axe off-screen. We follow it with the camera, and see it implant itself into an enemy. We rotate

back to Tiara, as she pulls off some bad-ass moves. She leaps up and cartwheels over an enemy. We slow down time at the apex, so that she's

perceptably moving, but slowly.  When she passes the center, we fast-forward time 2x, as she lands and gives a karate kick to the back of the guy's head.

We cut to darkage, whacking away with his now bloody and dripping sword. Suddenly, a figure emerges and starts to walk towards him. The battle

seems to move away from them now, as the two figures draw together in the space. The rest of the world is still fighting, but they are still. We pan around

them with the camera. Mute all external sounds except them.


darkage: Hello Redfang.

Redfang: Yes...it is...nice to see you, dark.

darkage: Well...

Redfang: Yes...

They both draw their swords and leap towards each. Just before they strike, we cut to the previous battle with Beta team.
Now, the battle seems to be about even. We cut to Warlock, kicking some major ass with his mech-arm-turned-club. He whacks a guy away, and then

leapes on top of him. We cut to the soldier's POV, and see Warlock's fist coming at us. When it hits, we cut to black.

For, once the script is finished, we can start on the actual movie. Anybody want to put forth suggestions on how we may do this? (If there's another way from CG).

HMMMmmmm.... Now thats not a bad idea... But  my skill in drawing people isn't up to scratch, and this would make quite a long comic book. But if there would be a group of guys working on it, it would be quite easy to do.

But I personally would opt for a an animated version of it. Like using the Unreal Tournament engine or something. I've seen films, and they work wonders. :D

Actually, I just looked into some more stuff. Maybe using SOF2 would be better. MORE GORE! :D :headz:

Can I suggest that you at least give one scene a try? And remember, pretty much all the people you'd be drawing would be in combat armor/gear or something along those lines... and I'm not gonna touch with an LRBGreen what attire you should depict Tiara in... :doubt: ;)

I'll give it a go... :D But don't expect it anytime soon. I'm very particular when it comes to ACTUAL hand drawing and I rarely show people my work. But I'll pick some scene with a fair bit of action and try and draw it.

And while you're doing that, I'm going to try and look up some programs that I (or we) could use to get the whole thing animated.

BTW, expect the next part sometime tommorow, if nothing interferes. If something does, wait till the next day, etc.

Well, here it is: THE END!

But, just remember that, even though we're finished with the script, we still have the movie to do!;)

Fade from black. We open up to:

INT. Front Entrannce to Tech Sup. Day

The battle is still going strong, however, the HLP Militia is really starting to win now. Bullet fire can be heard, but now it's growing more sporadic.  We  cut to the a smaller battle in the center of the room, between venom2506 and Stealth.
venom leaps over top of him, doing a flip in mid-air. He lands with his back facing Stealth, and as starts to whirl around, Stealth plants a kick right in the center of his back. venom Goes flying forwards into a wall. He recovers quickly, and lashes out with a random roundhouse punch in Stealth's direction.
He dodges it easily, and pulls back with his left arm to let out a punch. We cut to a waste as his right arm reaches down at the same time, to pull out a knife.  We cut back to the previous view as venom dodges the fake left-handed punch. In doing so, he gets up near him. Stealth twirls his hand around and grips his arm, pulling him towards him.
Drawing his knife, he sends it through venom's gut. We cut to slow-mo as he bends forward at the waste. Cut to a side-view of his head. His mouth is open, his eyes wide. A clump of blood mixed with spit flys forward out of his mouth. Cut to normal speed as he slumps to the ground on his knees, clenching the knife in his gut. Cut to a close-up of Stealth's stony face.
Cut to a close-up of Venom's face. He's gasping for breath. Suddenly, he starts to breath more normally, but more softly. He grins and lifts his head slightly. We cut to a view of his solarplexus, oozing blood from the knife wound. He starts to slowly pull it out, and as he does so, the blood slowly starts to stop. Eventually, when he pulls it all the way out. He's not bleeding anymore, and
the blood around the wound is now caked into his vest. We cut to Stealth's face, and he registers a surprised look, as venom2506 lunges at him with the knife. Stealth is obviously taken by surprise, and stumbles backwards with less surety in his steps, as he struggles to dodge the knife swipes at his head. Each time it comes extremely close, but he pulls his head back just in time to miss it.
Suddenly, venom trips his advisory, sending him crashing to the floor. As he brings the knife up for the final blow, we cut to wEvil, talking with daveb, in his old and now abandoned headquarters.


wEvil: daveb! The time is near! How much time till the Interplay ships aquire a target lock and the weapons are charged?

daveb: (Speaking for first time) 10 minutes, sire.

wEvil looks down at his watch. 15 minutes are left on the clock.

wEvil: Very well. Come with me, daveb. We are going to tell the rest of the forum how their lives will end. Let us go to the battle scenes, and tell the soldiers who have fought and lost their blood, that they will soon lose their hope. That their sacrifices were indeed, in vane.

daveb: As you wish.

As they walk out, we fade to black.

INT. Back Entrance to Tech Sup. Day.

We open here to a bird's-eye-view of the entire battle, or what's left of it. Here, the HLP Militia has nearly totally won. Sporadic gunfire can be heard, but that is all. Suddenly, two figures emerge on a podium in front of the crowd. The entire room stops to look at them.

Figure 1: Greetings, noble militia members, and servants of my own. You have all fought well!

Total silence follows this. From the voice, we find out that the figure is indeed wEvil. He begins to walk down the steps to the floor, the other figure in tow.

wEvil: Yes...you have indeed all fought well. But, alas it is in vain. For, you see. (He looks at his watch) You all have only have ten minutes to get out of a three-forum radius to Technological Superiority. Even then, this entire forum will die. daveb!

A hushed silence runs through the assembaly at this name.

daveb: (Other figure) Yes, sire?

wEvil: Tell them how they will die.

daveb: (Nods) Yes, sire.

We cut to a worm's-eye-view on the floor, as we slowly zoom up to his face as he begins to talk.

daveb: I have arranged the Interplay ships around this forum, and, as we speak, they will commence firing in 5 more minutes. First, all of the molecules in your body will superheat to nova proportions. As your body melts from the inside, you will feel the ultimate in agony. Finally, when the final blast comes in, you will all die as your body melts down with the force of a small nuclear reactor. Unfortunately for you, there's nothing you can do.

Suddenly, two voices shout out from off-screen, behind all of the boarders.

Voices: Not if we can help it!

Everyone in the room is surprised, and turns around quickly, and we follow their heads by rotating the camera. Standing in the archway are two silghouets. We begin to zoom up  closer. They walk towards us, and faintly become more and more visible. The other boarders quickly realize who they are, and gasp aloud. Standing in the doorway,
framed against the outside light...are Thunder and Setekh.


Thunder: Everyone get out of here, now!

Setekh: We shall handle this...problem.

We are now already far in, looking at them close up. Suddenly, Setekh turns his head quickly in the direction of daveb. We cut to a close-up of his eyes. They go into slits.

Setekh: Call off the fleet, daveb.

We cut to a front view of daveb and wEvil. daveb nods his head, and begins to go into a trance.

wEvil: No! Don't! Don't do it!

daveb snaps his head back up.

Setekh: Do it!

wEvil: NO! Do not listen to him!

daveb, caught between conflicting orders, doubles over and cries in pain. A clump of blood flies from his mouth. He lets out a scream of pain. He slumps to the floor on his knees, still doubled over. We cut to a close-up of his eyes. The lids close. We cut to his mouth.

daveb: (In whisper) Goodbye....friends.

He stands back up. He goes into a trance, but suddenly, he screams again, this time louder and more furious than before. He slumps to the ground, dead, as explosions from outside begin to rock the forum members. We cut to Thorn and Maeglamor.

Thorn: What did he do?

Maeglamor: (Lowers his eyes) He must have self-destructed the Interplay ships.

Thorn: (In whisper) So...he gave his lives for us, by destroying the ships, but how?

Maeglamor: He must have been under influence for so long, that parts of his conscious mind were in the minds of the Interplay agents. When he killed them, he destroyed his own mind.

Thorn: My god.....

We cut back to Thunder and Setekh.

Thunder: (Turns to face the crowd) GO! Get out of here! We'll make sure wEvil stays busy! Radio the other team and tell them to get moving!

As the other forum members hurry to comply, a voice can be suddenly heard behind wEvil.

Voice: I've got loads of spare time, too.

A figure emerges from the shadows from behind wEvil. It is Hemroid Frog Butt.

HFB: Lets du it!

He pulls out a large gun from behind his back. Setekh pulls out one of his own. wEvil and Thunder both ignite their lightsabers. wEvil's is the perfunctionary red, but Thunder's is a deep orange. By this time, the room is completely deserted, save the four combatants.

Thunder: Let us finish this!

He lunges for wEvil, and an explosion from the cieling rocks the entire room. More explosions begin to rock the entire forum, as the combat rages between the four foes. Setekh fires a shot off at HFB, but he easily dodges it, and fires off some of his own at Setekh, who blocks it with his own weapon. We cut to
Thunder and wEvil, locked in combat with each other. Thunder lunges at wEvil, and as they leap and jump, jostling for the correct position, more and more powerful explosions are rocking the forum. Pieces of the cieling start to fall downwards. One falls right in front of Thunder, blocking our view of wEvil. We cut to Setekh. His ammunition is all gone, and he's using his weapon now as a bludgeon. Suddenly, he sees an open spot, and swings at wEvil's head. Just before he connects, we freeze time. Fade to black.


EXT. Space. Day.

We are moving slowly through space. Wreckage can be seen floating around. We turn to the right, and there is the HLP forum. We begin zooming into it.

Shrike: (Voice-Over) The enemy...was vanquished, and all of his support was crumbled.

Fade to:

INT. Wreckage of Tech Sup. Day.

Shrike: (Voice-Over) We searched long and hard through the wreckage of the Technological Superiority, but found no remains of Thunder, Setekh, or wEvil and Hemroid. We can only assume that they were vaporized in the impending explosion.

Fade to:

INT. HLP Jail. Day.

We zoom outwards from the wall as Shrike is talking. Harmonica music can be heard.

Shrike: (VO) All members of wEvil's little gang were rounded up, and put in jail, and each was given an extended sentance, depending on their involvement.

Fade to:

EXT. Space. Day.

We move forwards through space, and spy a little object in the corner of the screen. We zoom forwards slowly. We fade in and out, each time getting closer to the object.

Shrike: (VO) But, as for the future....

We can now recognize the object as being earily similar to the thing that wEvil was talking about earlier. We fade out, and when we fade back in, we are inside of it. A long tube can be seen, with a sort of gas flowing all around it. We zoom in closer. A figure can be made out inside of it. Now, we are right in front of it. Continue zooming. We recognize the figure as wEvil. We fade out, and fade back in to a close-up of his eyes. Continue zooming, slowly.

Shrike: (VO)...who knows?

Suddenly, wEvil's eyes snap open. We fade to black as we continue to zoom in. When we are totally black, we roll credits and play end music.



SPECIAL THANKS:

bluvorlorn: For the inspiration with outstanding RBB movie.

darkage: For being such a great fan, and inspiring me to keep writing this story.

The HLP Community: For all of their support. To tell you the truth, I never thought that this would last this long, or even be this popular. Thank you!

Good work UT.  Final Page count was 52.  If you want, I can post the script up on my site in its entirety, for easier access.  I can't wait to actually see this thing as a movie. Here's a suggestion though, How about we start a second thread for disscussing the movie, as this one is nine pages long.  Good WorK again:D :D :yes: :yes: :eek2:

I don't know either how my and darkage's battle continued, I guess I lost and died or then I were put in a jail. :doubt:

I might write a sequel later, but at the moment I'm too busy trying to get this to be an actual movie. I can draw concept art and help out with the playing, but I don't know how to do the complex models this thing requires, plus, I don't know how to animate the entire thing. Anyone want to help?


EDIT: Here's the link to the archived RBB movie. You may notice I got a couple jokes from their, most notably the newbie training part :D

ME! ME! ME! I can help in all sorts of stuff. I can edit using Premiere, rotorscope images, do pointless fancy things, edit sound. I love video and film as much as I love Graphic Design, and I've has experience before in this area. I even made some comercials for the internal TV network at a mall! :D So if there's serious talk about making a movie, count me in! I'm still trying my best in figuring out how to do those story boards though. I could draw them, but like I said, they'd be too pritty and time consuming. So I've been trying to learn how to use Poser in order to atleast get the basic idea into picture format. But we will need someone who's good in actual character texturing/clothing/weaponry and backgrounds IE Corridors, rooms, etc.

Yeah, count me in.

So I'm going to compile this thing. Then I'm going to have 1 version that has all of the curs-words removed, a normal version, a version where all of the inside FS jokes are removed and replaced by Pop-culture references, and another of the same, but without cursowrds, what do you think?
