«You can skip this cutscene at any time.»
«Scene: Near a crop field. You enter the scene.»
[link=]Farmer[/link]: Oh, it's you, «You»! I have to be honest, I expected those BURPs again.
«You»: So did I. That's what I'm worried about.
Farmer: Why? Isn't it a good thing that the BURPs haven't attacked us this year?
«You»: I'm not so sure. It used to be that the BURPs attacked us every other year, when their population had peaked.
«You»: Then more recently, they started attacking every year. We figured that Pestilence had grown in strength, and was sending them to attack us more often.
«You»: But this year... nothing. And that has me worried.
Farmer: You should be happy! This is finally a chance for you to relax and enjoy the festival!
«You»: Yeah, maybe.
«The scene fades to black and switches over to a conversation between Famine and Pestilence.»
[link=]Famine[/link]: Are you sure that you haven't simply lost your touch?
[link=]Pestilence[/link]: Quite certain. The creatures do not respond to my calls. They are gathering in the forests as if to attack, just like every other year... but they will not obey me.
Famine: This is not good. Could our powers be waning?
Pestilence: I can't be certain, but I do know that our actions keep things in balance. This disobedience could cause problems much more serious than we ever imagined.
«The earth rumbles.»
Pestilence: What is that?
«Pestilence and Famine proceed to find the source of the rumbling, only to find themselves confronted by BURPs and BlackWhisker.»
Pestilence: What is the meaning of this?
[link=]BlackWhisker[/link]: This? This be mutiny, ye landlubbers.
«The scene fades to black. Back at the fields, ElBhe speaks to you and Kosefira. A bunch of fruits and vegetables sought after during Harvest Festival lie beside ElBhe.»
[link=]ElBhe[/link]: ...so, one more time. You go in search of these... what are these things?
ElBhe: ...right, these 'fregetables'. And you gather up this precious food so that you can give it away to a goddess who doesn't eat any of them?
Kosefira: Uh, yes?
ElBhe: What a ridiculous holiday.
«You»: You're just upset because Lorian holidays tend to end with you getting chased off by the unwanted advances of some cute animal.
ElBhe: You're a terrible wingman, you know that?
«A farmer enters the scene.»
Farmer: «You», come quickly!
«You»: Oh, have the BURPs finally started attacking?
Farmer: Yes, but they're not attacking the fields.
«You»: Then... where are they attacking?
Farmer: They're attacking the forces of Pestilence and Famine.

Return to Camp
Visit the BURP war camp
[link=]Shogun Akunezu[/link]: So you and the Battleonian forces have come after all. We have no need for your interference in this matter. This is our war. Fight Famine and Pestilence!
«You»: And it's being fought in OUR countryside!
Shogun Akunezu: Well, despite your people's interference, we will have our chance at freedom soon enough.
«You»: Are you kidding? Your foes are demipowers. Your armies can't hope to win.
Shogun Akunezu: Oh, I assure you, we have not even begun to fight.
Shogun Akunezu: Deploy our new hardware to the battlefield, at once!
«In the battleground, as mobs run amok, a W.H.E.E.L. runs over a Crazy Cornelius standing in its way. The scene then switches to a B.I.R.D. that blasts a FlibbityGibbit flying around.»
Pestilence: How cute. They believe they can face us on equal footing by bringing new toys to the fight.
Famine: Then they have underestimated their opponents.
«You return to the war camp.»
Fight the BURP Army!
«Regardless of choice, you undergo the following battles:»
4 BATTLES «When Famine's and Pestilence's war meter hit 100%, a new cutscene "Visit the BURP war camp" was released, along with a reset of both war meters back to half of the amount they had when the cutscene was unlocked. After Famine's and Pestilence's war meter hit 100%...»
Optional Full Heal after battle #2
Full Heal after battle #4
6 BATTLES «You arrive at Famine's and Pestilence's lair to find all the BURPs utterly defeated.»
Optional Full Heal after battles #2, #4 and #6
«You»: I'm too late....
Pestilence: Nonsense, you're just in time. Are you responsible for this silly little rebellion?
«You»: No, but I have to be honest, it would have been nice if they'd won.
Famine: Then we don't have the time to deal with you. We need to figure out what is causing this, and quickly.
«You»: Not so fast. You both have a lot to answer for.
Famine: Fine, then I'll make a quick snack out of you, and THEN we'll be on our way.
1 BATTLE: Famine «Everyone vanishes from the scene. Serenia enters.»
1 BATTLE: Pestilence
«You»: Serenia? What are you doing here?
Serenia: I have come to warn you, «You». What the BURPs say has me concerned.
Serenia: It seems that my brother, Famine, as well as Pestilence, have lost control of the BURPs.
Serenia: This could indicate that their powers are waning. And if that is true, it could result in a dangerous shift in the balance of power in Lore.
«You»: What could cause them to lose their powers?
Serenia: I'm not certain, but be careful, «You». Change is coming, I can feel it.
«The scene fades to black. Over at a mysterious lair, the BURPs are speaking to someone...»
Shogun Akunezu: We failed, master. Pestilence and Famine still live.
???: On the contrary, you've done splendidly.
Shogun Akunezu: ....you are not angry?
???: I did not send you into battle against them expecting you to succeed.
???: I was merely testing my theory.
Shogun Akunezu: Your... theory, master?
???: Indeed. And it was a success. Their powers are waning, just as planned. With enough time, they will be powerless.
???: And when that time comes, I will crush them both with my own claws.
Shogun Akunezu: Yes, their powers wane.... but now «You» and the Lorians know this, as well. They may try to stop you.
???: «You»'s interference was inevitable. Whether it happened sooner or later has no influence on my plans.
???: «You», like all heroes, can't see past the end of his/her pointy beating stick. Adventurers are an easily understood lot of creatures.
???: But unfortunately for them, I have had too much time to prepare. Too much time hiding in the shadows, secretly moving my pieces into place.
???: Change is now inevitable. And «You» will either embrace that change... or be destroyed by it.
«The scene fades to black and the BURP War 2014 shop opens. Once you leave the shop:»
