«You»: There you are!
ElBhe: Don't do this, SeekRat! You have no idea what you're unleashing on Lore!
Seekrat: You're the second shadow creature to tell me that.
Seekrat: Unfortunately, you're both too late! The ritual has already begun!
ElBhe: Oh no!
Seekrat: Bwahahaha! Look above you, hero!
«Scene pans upward, revealing a Shadowy storm»
ElBhe: What have you done?
Seekrat: I have opened the gate to your home, ElBhe. And brought a few of your friends over from the other side to visit!
Seekrat: All it took was a little help from your family...
ElBhe: ... What!?
Seekrat: MUWAHAHA! Your "Litter" has made it easy to channel the power of the Other Side!
Seekrat: And just wait. Once I have harnessed the power of The Old One, I will lead this great shadow army to conquer Lore!
ElBhe: You'll pay dearly for this, SeekRat! Nobody take my family! *hiss*
«You»: Wait... "The Old One"? Is that a shadow creature with a really big shadowy beard?
ElBhe: The Old One is a powerful and ancient being whose very presence could destroy this universe!
ElBhe: His mere presence drives rational beings insane!
«You»: ... but the SeekRat already is insane.
ElBhe: Er, right... more insane, then!
SeekRat: I wish I could stay and gloat, but there is more of the ritual to complete for me to obtain The Old One's power.
«You»: How is this happening, ElBhe? I thought shadow selves couldn't survive outside of a body!
ElBhe: It's the aura emanating from that portal. The Old One's power is seeping into Lore, allowing the creatures to venture into Lore as far as He allows.
«You»: So if we can fight through these monsters and get to the SeekRat before it's too late, we can send them all back?
ElBhe: Exactly. And we can save my family in the process. Everyone wins.
«You»: Then we'd better get started!
The Other Side-- Unleashed!
The Seekrat is bringing creatures from the Shadow Realm to Lore! Only you and your fellow Guardians and Adventurers can halt the incoming rush of Shadow creatures and put a stop to the Seekrat's plans before the ritual is complete!
«Above the following options is a clock counting down to 12:00:00 AM on May 24, 2011.»

Twilly: That mean ol' Seekrat is kidnapping kittens! What's this world coming to? Twilly thought it was supposed to be the other way around!
Twilly: If you need to be healed, I can help you.
Heal me please
Let me handle this!
Twilly: There you goes! All healed up!
Optional full heal after the second battle
When 50% of the Shadow creatures were defeated...
«Scene: Dark Jungle, where SeekRat speaks to the Litter.»
You may skip this cutscene at any time.
Seekrat: ... so, wait. You're... um... EffAay, right?
YewVhe: WRONG! Could you be more wrong? I don't even look slightly like him, scaredy-kitten that he is.
YewVhe: I'm much more beautiful, and I'm more charming, and I'm more cuddly, and intelligent to boot!
YewVhe: You're supposed to be a hyperintelligent BURP? I just don't see it, you look like that librarian who always tells me to be quiet in the library.
YewVhe: You know what I think? I think you're really dumb, and ugly, and...
Seekrat: I GET IT, I GET IT, YOU'RE YEWVHE. SHUT UP NOW.
Seekrat: Now just stay here. If I have to chase you down again, I'll throw you all in a cage built with flashlights, I swear.
EffAay: MEOW! We'd better do as he says...
ElDhe: The SeekRat's holding us hostage? This is SEWIOUS... er... SERIOUS! And very dramatic!
ElDhe: Camera-man, be sure you get my good side!
EssEll: You don't have one.
ElDhe: You're just jealous of my natural talent!
EssEll: Drama queen!
ElDhe: Food fanatic!
EssEll: That's not even an insult!
Seekrat: ... I'm starting to regret this decision... this "Old One" better be worth it.
After 100% of the Shadow creatures were defeated:
4 BATTLES Seekrat: This cannot be... my army...
Full Heal after each battle
ElBhe: You've lost, SeekRat.
Seekrat: Not yet, I haven't! Try to stop me!
Battle with ElBhe's help!
Battle with Wandy's help!
Battle with Eselgee's help!
Battle with Robina's help!
Battle with Artix's help!
Battle by yourself!
«You»: He's running away again!
ElBhe: Let him go for now. We need to close the gate!
«A large Shadowy, round portal opens in the gate.»
ElBhe: Oh no! We're too late!
«The Old One exits.»
The Old One: O hai.
The Old One: Im in ur uneevers, bloweding it up.
«You»: What sort of strange, incomprehensible language is that? No wonder he drives people mad!
ElBhe: ... yeah, perhaps I should handle this.
ElBhe: *ahem* d00d!
The Old One: Wut?
ElBhe: Can u, lyke, not blowed up dis plaec?
The Old One: Y I no can has boom?
ElBhe: Ees kewl heer. Do not want esplodedness.
The Old One: O, rly?
ElBhe: Ya, rly. Do liek. U shud visit sum day.
The Old One: Kk, I chek meh skeduewl. Bai nao!
«The Old One leaves and the gate and portal disappear.»
«You»: I'm glad you were able to communicate with that thing.
«You»: If you hadn't been able to speak to it, it might have destroyed all of Lore!
ElBhe: ... I feel dirty for talking like that. Never make me do that again.
«You»: Can shadowkittens even get dirty?
ElBhe: Want to visit my litterbox and find out?
«You»: ... I'll pass, ElBhe, but thanks for the offer.
«You»: I'm just glad that everything worked out okay.
ElBhe: Of course. The Old One being an ancient and mighty power is a running joke from our universe. He's no threat.
ElBhe: I merely pretended to be frightened. It's part of the "lulz", as The Old One might say.
«You»: ... you had us fight an entire war because of an inside joke?!?
ElBhe: Hey, The Old One started that joke. And you can't blame me for your violent tendencies.
«You»: ... I'm feeling my violent tendencies starting to make my weapon arm twitch.
ElBhe: Yeah yeah, save it for later. We both know you and I are buddies, after all.
«You»: ... right... best buddies. *twitch*
ElBhe: Now, where's my family? If that rat harmed them...
ElDhe: Over heeeeeere!!!
«The Litter enters.»
ElBhe: I'm so glad you're alright!
YewVhe: Yeah, he said we annoyed him so much that he couldn't stand being near us anymore! Can you imagine that? The outrage!
YewVhe: I think we make great company! We're all such likeable kittens, and of course, as snuggly as I am...
«You»: I'm guessing that's YewVhe.
YewVhe: Well of course! Obviously, you recognized my flawless beauty and...
«You»: Yes, whatever you say! Now please, stop talking! You're worse than The Old One!
ElBhe: It's good to have you all back.
«Scene fades, then Scene changes to another part of the Dark Jungle, where there is the SeekRat.»
Seekrat: They may have foiled my plans this time, but I shall have my revenge yet!
Seekrat: I didn't leave empty-handed, at least...
«The SeekRat's eyes glow red.»
Seekrat: «You»'s interference has weakened the power I have obtained, but in time, I can strengthen it...
Seekrat: And then you shall PAY, «You»!
