«Scene: Paxia Arena»
«You»: I wonder what this top-secret meeting could be about? Hello is anyone there?
???: Shhh! TOP SECRET!
«The eight clan leaders enter. If you are part of a clan:»
«Your Clan Leader»: Welcome fellow «Your Clan» member!! We detected a group of elite Chaos Drakel on Paxia and we do not know why they are here!«If you are not part of a clan:»
Geoto: I sense you are not a clan member yet, but we need every bit of help we can get! We detected a group of elite Chaos Drakel on Paxia, and we do not know why they are here!«You»: You can count me in. I will look for those Drakel and find out what they're up to!
«Optional Full Heal»
«You»: There is the Glacius clan base. Hmm... and THRE is something that might be a clue! Hehe...
«You see a Drakel Air Raider shivering in Ice»
«You»: What happened to you? And where is the rest of your group?!
Drakel Air Raider: I-- I ran out of--f--- fuel---and crashed. Our captain left me. The mission-- was too imp-- important--
«You»: What mission is that?
Drakel Air Raider: T-- too cold-- to-- re-- remember. *shivers*
Okay, I will defrost you and then you can tell me!

The half-frozen Drakel air raider, ironically named the Blue Baron, tells you that his elite unit of Chaos Drakels have come to Paxia seeking a lost remnant of technology that may have been the basis of Drakel engineering. He points you to the northeast, in the direction they ere last headed...
«Optional Full Heal»
«You»: Whoa there, big guy! What is that metal thing behind you? Let me guess-- its a popular club and you are the bouncer?
Drakel Bouncer: This does not concern you. Turn around and I will allow you to keep breathing.
«You»: Maybe we can talk about this. I just want to know what Chaos Drakels are doing here. Tell me and I'll let YOU live.
Drakel Bouncer: Threats will get you nowhere. I have no emotions. I have no fear. I do what I am told.
Go Through Him! (Fight!)Go Around Him! (Hack his robo-brain with a stat roll!)
Are you smart enough to hack this cybernetic Drakel's brain and get him to let you alone??
Stat Used: Intelligence
«Fail and you have to fight the Drakel. Succeed and you proceed»
Abandon Quest! (Chicken!)
**«Glitched! Takes you to the stat roll»
«You»: This thing is big. I wonder what it is? Some parts of it look like things Drakels can make-- but other parts look to advance even for them!
Captain Marakos: Your observation is quite astute, Human!
«You»: What IS this thing? And why are you trespassing into Paxia?!
Captain Marakos: We are the Chaos Drakel! We answer to no one-- not even the Drakel who split from the K'elds following the recent civil war! I have come here as part of an ADVANCED team--
Captain Marakos: --to find and reactivate ancient technology!
«You»: So this thing is ancient technology? It looks-- well-- not that ancient!
Captain Marakos: It is 5000 years old, and we have just removed tons of rock and soil to unveil its BEAUTY!
Captain Marakos: The language found within is so old as to be utterly ALIEN to us, but our engineers have find a way to reactivate it. All I have to do is send a signal--
Captain Marakos: --and this massive war machine will bid the doing of the Chaos Drakel Corps!!!! PAXIA AND ITS CLANS WILL SINK INTO THE SEA!!!!!!
«You»: Pardon me. You will not be doing any island-destroying today.
1 BATTLE«You»: What do you have to say for yourself now??
Captain Marakos: Only this--
«Marakos sends a signal to the machine»
Captain Marakos: Say hellllo to my little friend!
«The machine goes berserk and starts firing.»
«You»: Ahhh! You tricky lizard!
«You cast Fireball on Captain Marakos»
«You»: How am I supposed to stop this thing from blowing up all of Paxia?!?
«The machine stops»
«You»: Whew-- the power of positive thinking!
«The Shiny Boy mech appears»
Shiny Boy: You are quite mistaken! The Mecha's salvo was simply a wake-up call!
«You»: Who-- what are you?? And what do you mean??
Shiny Boy: It does not matter who I am right now. What matters is that you know--
Shiny Boy: -- this mecha just reactivated FIVE mega-cannons buried across Paxia!
Shiny Boy: Before long the cannons will begin the bombardment of clan bases.
Shiny Boy: I will refurbish as many Shiny Boy power suits as I can. Then it will be up to YOU--
Shiny Boy: --to help lead and organize the clan armies in a war against Chaos Drakel and--
Shiny Boy: Their new mecha technology from 5000 years in the past!
«You»: Are you sure you have the right person?
Shiny Boy: No, but you will do.
«You»: I hope I get at least a cookie for this.
Shiny Boy: In fact, I DID bring you cookies- from 5000 years in the past!
