| Frostval 2009 Deleted & Extended Scenes
Like everything in AdventureQuest these scenes are something of a parody. In this case a parody of DVD Extras themselves! Thus in the style of such extras the following is the storyline developers "commentary":
So epic was the story of Kabak that in the process of relating it to you cuts had to be made in order to make the material more approachable to the uninitiated, that is to say the player who plays either more casually or is new to the game.
Some of these cuts were in length to fit, others represent content that would have slowed the flow of the quest down, had they been revealed in game.
The scenes that follow represent these cuts and early work included an expanded and alternate introduction flashback sequence where the hero learns more about the origins of Kabak. In some places these deleted scenes may appear to introduce points of >>>[missing words]<<<
Some of you, the ones who obsess over things like canon and fanon, may wonder then which version of these contradictory events are true. As the New Year will reveal however, Lore is a larger and stranger place than any imagined. Each version of events may be true in its own version of Lore.
Largely it is assumed that where seeming contradiction exists the events are closer in our own version of Lore to the original release.
Where no contradiction but only expansion exists the expansions are deutrocanonical. They are part of the canon and story of the game but are considered to hold less weight and importance than the events originally shown.
«Scene: Isle D'Oriens, Library»
Ryuusei Cartwright: You really do make some excellent baked goods, Ardendor.
Falerin: It is a gift.
«You enter the scene.»
«You»: Ryuusei Cartwright, your vile evil has gone too far! Helping Kabak use his giant winch to steal all of Frostvale is beyond the pale!
Ryuusei Cartwright: ...Whatever are you talking about? Who in the worlds is Kabak?
«You»: Don't play innocent Cartwright; I found a green and black astromorph device. Clearly it was involved in the magic Zorbak and Kabroz used that blew that hold in Glaciar's domain.
Falerin: Ryuusei and I have been meeting together for days, comparing recipes and baking Frostval treats. He has been under my observation the entire time.
«You»: But... But I...
Falerin: Really, «You»... Breaking into my library! When someone finally just wanted to have tea!
«You»: But.... I found this...
Ryuusei Cartwright: The coloration of this is all wrong. I could almost imagine that this is where that stolen device went, were it not for this odd configuration.
Ryuusei Cartwright: Hmm... wait... yes, this is the stolen device.
Ryuusei Cartwright: Oh, but what have they done to it? This is horrible! This sort of alteration is highly unstable.
«You»: But if you are not responsible, Cartwright, then how did this happen?!
«You»: How did that crater create Kabak? Are Zorbak and Kabroz gone for good?
«You»: How did Kabak construct that entire winch to steal the very town of Frostvale itself?!
Falerin: All good questions but lets address one at a time shall we. Abode trace this please.
Abode: Here is a tale from far far away a tale of e(v/b)il a tale of hayt.
Abode: Why a tale so dark that in Frostval they say.
Abode: That Zorbak and Kabroz's hearts shrank 1.4 sizes that day!
«Scene: Flashback - Glacius, before the blast»
Kabroz: You simply lack any sort of foresight at all. Not only have you repeatedly failed to end the accursed holiday, your meddling actually made us have it twice in one year!
Zorbak: Bah, that merely was an unforeseen complication of Mu Glen's involvement. Besides, the Khandie Khain issue has been resolved...
Kabroz: No it has not. Though I have plans for that too. For now however we need to address the holiday and how to destroy it, rather than save it as you so nobly did...
Zorbak: Meh. I did NOT... besides, what can you possibly do that I have not? I have everything prepared.
Kabroz: I have acquired one of these.
«The scene zooms in on Kabroz and Zorbak, and Kabroz shows a green and black Astramorph device.»
Zorbak: Stole it you mean. That Astramorph device looks even more pathetic and low quality than usual.
Zorbak: It is hideous. Completely lacking quality. I tell you the standards for content have gone down tremendously.
Kabroz: Are you done insulting its manufacture? You of all people know not to judge a book by its cover. Or do I have to remind you.
Zorbak: Remind me of what?
Kabroz: The bright and flowery pastel book of ultimate necromantic doom.
Zorbak: That is entirely different.
Zorbak: By being bright with flowers and unicorns and butterflies on the cover. None expects what waits to consume their very soul inside.
Kabroz: ... I do love that book.
Zorbak: Yeah it is great. I think we're getting off topic. I am not having my body altered by some alien device...
Kabroz: No, not you... Think grander, you fool. I have altered the device.
Zorbak: Now the truth about why the manufacture is so shoddy comes to light.
Kabroz: (Ignoring Zorbak's slight) The original alters things into what they truly wish to be. This device alters things into what WE truly wish them to be.
Zorbak: Meheheheh... to reshape beings into the ultimate anti-Frostval warriors. Well, lets see it in action!
Horn appears on his head.
Kabroz: Hmm... The frozen zombies were better. Cold based rather than darkness based. Corpsicles!
Kabroz: This is disappointing, I think I need to make some adjustm...
Zorbak: This!? A wolf with a deer antler strapped to his head? THIS... this pathetic attempt... This is your idea of the ultimate anti-Frostval beast?!
«Zorbak shoots a dark bolt from his staff at Kabroz, who throws the Astramorph device when hit.»
Zorbak: I swear Kabroz. You get far too much credit.
Zorbak: Meh! You're the brighter one.
Zorbak: You're the evil one!
Zorbak: You're the more scholarly one!
Zorbak: You're the yellow one!
Zorbak: You're the... Uh oh... is the device supposed to have that crack in it and glow and smoke like that?
Kabroz: You broke it you idiot! It's going to explode! It is a good thing you have me. I'll cast a spell to repair it!
«You replay Part I of the Frostval 2009 Saga from this point on, including all battles, and cutscenes, all the way till the end. When you press "Continued!"...»
Kabak: Oh, but this is perfect. I am a whole greater than some of its parts.
Kabak: A creature of pure e(v/b)il squared. What delightful punctuation that was! Demons would show envy. Now to that hero I had better be prepared. For I am sure he is coming to get me.
Abode: Kabak was vile, vulgar, and mean,
Abode: tasteless, and tacky, and not very clean.
Abode: A wicked, fused moglin with a misanthropic streak,
Abode: He would attack the Frostval holiday where he found it most weak...
Kabak: Now... where is it they defeated them year after year... the delivery. That is the rub. The delivery... they always stop me at the delivery. So, rather than stopping the delivery...
Abode: For years, Zorbak's conniving had long been expected. For years, each and every one of his plans been detected.
Abode: But in Kabak, at last, a true diabolical plot had been perfected.
Kabak: Let their deliveries to Battleon go through. I will not stop a one. Let their deliveries go through, but here comes the fun...
Kabak: When none come to stop them, they'll know not what to do. They simply cannot imagine that such a thing will be true.
Abode: His plan was dastardly but simple I fear. They'll rest easy at night in their beds full of cheer...
Abode: And it's then, so much later, that e(v/b)il Kabak and his Winch would appear!
Kabak: Kabak said with diabolic glee.
Kabak: The buildings, the presents, and even the trees. The whole town of Frostvale dug up... it's a cinch. I will just use my giant undead Winch!
Kabak: I will send my armies to end it all. I will send them and their holiday will fall. Now where to start my goals quite grand, where to launch my diabolical plan. Hmm..
«You replay Part II of the Frostval 2009 Saga from this point on, up till the cutscene which shows the giant Winch chomping down on all the presents and leaving only one behind in Battleon. The scene then switches back to the library at Isle D'Oriens.»
«You»: This is terrible and now that he has constructed that winch. There is no way I can get to him to save Frostval in time.
«Ryuusei Cartwright raises his staff, which begins glowing blue.»
Ryuusei Cartwright: Oh, I do not know about that.
«The scene slowly transits from the library to the Frostrail Turbo Express.»
Ryuusei Cartwright: Well are you coming?
Ryuusei Cartwright: Why, to Frostvale of course. What did you think? We can fight Kabak, break the magic that fused him and restore all of the gifts in a wink.
Ryuusei Cartwright: To Frostval, dear «You», you need not distress-- for this is the Frostrail... Turbo Express!
Ryuusei Cartwright: The thing about trains, it doesn't matter where they're going. What matters is deciding to get on.
Abode: And so they set out on that magical train to save the holiday from the vast evil crane to rescue the city upon the Frostrail to turn Kabak's plan into Frostfail.
Abode: Ouch... I mean wow... these puns hurt my brain. And talking like this could drive Fizzle sane.
«The background instantly changes to the spot where Frostvale once stood.»
Abode: So swifter than eagles, the little train that could, raced through Greenguard to where Frostvale once stood.
Abode: What they found was not merry, what they found was not nice, for where Frostvale once stood was nothing but ice.
«You»: Can we do this without the Abode's bad poetry?
Ryuusei Cartwright: Poetry?
«You»: Why is the Abode even here? I could see it back in the library but... wait... you don't hear the poetry?
Ryuusei Cartwright: No. Ardendor?
Falerin: I hear nothing.
Falerin: Don't look now but those Zombies look a bit unhappy to see us. Were I not already, I would not want to be us.
Ryuusei Cartwright: I think perhaps Kabak has grown annoyed and even a tad sick of us. I am supposed to be a master of the Cold but this is ridiculous.
This scene represents an alternative mid war confrontation between Kabak, Falerin, Ryuusei and the Player.
Kabak: You are too late, there's nothing to do, for Frostvale is gone and that annoying holiday too.
«You»: Not so fast my e(v/b)il friend, We're here to stop you, To your plans put to an end and send your winch to the pit. ...Oh, for heaven's sake, now I'm doing it!
Ryuusei Cartwright: That was a bit off...
Falerin: Indeed, the meter is all wrong and the cadence felt forced.
Kabak: You haven't the chance... Let's look at the facts. Starting right here with my sleddog named Maxx.
«You»: Your cute little doggie sure did the trick. Instead of attacking; my hand gave a lick. Your loss is apparent the battle complete; you know that this shall end in your defeat.
Ryuusei Cartwright: I <<Missing words>>
Falerin: A little it still needs work on flow and timing.
Ryuusei Cartwright: Still not everyone can be an c. c. zardlings, or a Robert Frostzard...
«You»: Are you really sitting here and cri.... crita *Laughter* Sorry. Are you really sitting here my friends to criticize? While the fate of the holiday in my hands lays.
«You»: Kabak you're finished. It's over just quit. Or else I will have to do it by force; use my fists to end it.
Kabak: I pity you if you think this means my plans are undone, that you have put an end to my Frostval fun.
Kabak: You cannot stop the winch. Nor can you beat my crane. And now my friend, here comes the pain.
This was the originally scripted end of the first war.
Proceeding Frostval Delivery.
«Scene: Frostrail Turbo Express»
«You»: We cannot possibly make the deliveries on time. What time is it anyway?
Ryuusei Cartwright: It's a minute to midnight.
«You»: Hey! It's been a minute to midnight for twenty minutes!
«The scene fades to white.»
THE END Play again!
Coming in January 2010.
