Act 2 - Scene 2

[Lights up on a Kirbyland scene. Liquid, Ybbald, and Silver are being chased by a spike wall. They eventually escape by climbing up a vine wall until it passes]

Silver: What is this? That's the third one that's chased us! Kirbyland was never this dangerous.

Ybbald: It just makes it more fun!

[Liquid says nothing. His skin has a grayish tint to it]

Silver: C'mon, Liquid, we need to find that Unhealthy Fruit.

[Set change to Kirbyland Unhealthy Fruit tree]

Silver: This is it, isn't it?

Ybbald: I think so.

Liquid: This is...it.

[Liquid steps forward and grabs one of the Unhealthy Fruit]

Silver: Wait, Liquid! Don't touch it, you need this!

[Silver brandishes a metal container of some kind]

Ybbald: Too late.

[Liquid says nothing, but as he holds the Unhealthy Fruit, his skin turns grayer and grayer]

Silver: Liquid, drop the fruit. You look like you're dying.

Ybbald: No time for that.

[As Ybbald approaches Liquid with the clear intent on forcing the Unhealthy Fruit out of his hands, roots from the Unhealthy Fruit tree shoot up and wrap around Ybbald]

Silver: Ybbald!

[Silver begins running towards Ybbald]

Ybbald: Silver, it's no good. Run, find a way out of Kirbyland.

Silver: But...

Ybbald: Just go!

[Silver turns and exits stage left hurriedly]

[Set change to Kirbyland, spike wall foreground shoots up, Silver enters stage right]

Silver: Damn. I can't get out of Kirbyland this way, there's no way around this spike wall. It seems like someone or something doesn't want anyone leaving Kirbyland...or maybe getting in. I'll have to find another way out. Maybe the Underground? I think that's the only way out of here besides this.

[Silver exits stage left into what looks like a cave of some kind. Blackout]

End Scene 2

Act 2 - Scene 3

[Dim lights come up on a cave scene. Yoshi, Tervez, and Pokota enter stage left]

Pokota: This hasn't been too bad so far.

Tervez: Well, we wouldn't have had any trouble at all if Yoshi hadn't insisted on checking that side passage.

Yoshi: I thought it looked interesting! I didn't know it was just a deathtrap!

Tervez: Whatever, just remember, we're not here to explore, we're here to get a sample of that Unhealthy Fruit, and if we can rescue Liquid, Silver, and Ybbald while we're at it that's fine too.

Pokota: Why haven't we had any trouble in this passage? I remember plenty of people dying when they tried to get through, not even getting more than a few minutes walk down. Kwiftee tried it a couple times before he left, I remember, and I think Ark did too before he left. But we're already a day's walk down and we haven't had any problems.

Tervez: I've been wondering the same thing. It would seem to me that unless we're very lucky and most of the traps here have faded over time, either someone really wants us to get into Kirbyland, or someone wants to make sure that we waste time if we find an impassable deathtrap at the other end.

Yoshi: Didn't someone make it through this back in the Beta age?

Tervez: Yeah, someone did, but none of us were around then. Either way it doesn't really count, Kayin changed a lot of the landscape during the Beta age.

[They continue walking. There is a set change to another cave scene, and Yoshi trips and falls down]

Tervez: Yoshi, you okay?

Yoshi: I tripped on something, but I think I'm good. Hold on, let me look at it.

[It appears to be a large red button of some kind]

Pokota: I don't think I've seen anything like this before.

Tervez: Neither have I. We should just leave it, it may be dangerous.

Yoshi: It looks like a fun button to press to me.

Tervez: Don't even think about it. Remember what happened last time.

Yoshi: Yeah, but...

Pokota: What might happen if we press it?

Tervez: Most likely we'd die. It's possible it might open a secret passage or a teleporter or something, but it's most likely a deathtrap.

Yoshi: A secret passage? That'd save us a lot of time.

[Before anyone can respond, Yoshi jumps on the button, pressing it down. A click is heard, a door opens in the rock wall center stage, and a vertical spike wall begins coming across from stage right]

Tervez: Dammit Yoshi! You're going to get us all killed!

Yoshi: No look, a secret passage!

[He points]

Pokota: Let's go!

[They enter the secret passage just before the spike wall kills them. Blackout]

Nah, they're metroid seeds. And me without my cresta magics, too. One quick Spiral Blizzard would take care of them... but what are they doing so far from Tourian?

Act 2 - Scene 4

[Lights come up on the Mod Board, a well-hidden building. SilentLoner and dsk are inside as Kitty enters]

SilentLoner: Kitty, what took you so long? We were about to go looking for you.

Kitty: I was checking a few things. On my way back from checking Kirbyland to make sure Rag wasn't there, I met some of the Regulars...Silver, Ybbald, and Liquid.

dsk: So what?

Kitty: They were looking for an Unhealthy Fruit tree. They know there's one in Kirbyland.

SilentLoner: An Unhealthy Fruit tree?

Kitty: That's what the Regulars are calling those corrupted Delicious Fruit trees that are around the Fortress. And now they aren't just around the Fortress, like I said, there's one in Kirbyland.

dsk: What's it matter? We checked those a decade ago, they're harmless.

Kitty: Not anymore. Three Regulars vanished when an Unhealthy Fruit fell on them.

SilentLoner: Who were they?

Kitty: Koppis, OLDGREG, and Yule.

dsk: Not too much of a loss.

Kitty: dsk, shut up. Kayin told us to protect the regulars and only to destroy the ones that were irredeemable. Just because Koppis and OLDGREG have spammed in the past doesn't mean we don't protect them. Besides, how can you say Yule isn't a loss?

dsk: It was dry humor.

Kitty: Oh. Well anyway, I did some searching around of my own. It's times like these where I really miss Regulars like Venser and Kwiftee who were good at figuring out this sort of thing, but that can't be helped now. What I found is that these Unhealthy Fruit trees are spreading. I couldn't get close to the Fortress, but I could see that the negative energy from the place is much larger than it used to be. The sprawl is bigger, too; Unhealthy Trees are growing pretty far out from the Fortress, not just close to the walls like they used to.

SilentLoner: But what are they?

Kitty: I'm not sure. We've known for a long time that something dark was living in the Fortress, but what it is, I can't imagine. I wish now that we had dared to check it decades ago, we might have been able to stop it. But now, I doubt that even if we had Rag helping us we'd be able to make a dent in whatever it is that's creating all that negative energy. What I'm guessing is that the grey skies and the Unhealthy Fruit trees are just a manifestation of that energy corrupting the Delicious Fruit. As the power inside the Fortress grows, so too does the power in the trees. That's why they were harmless before but now they do...something.

dsk: That's a great theory, but how does it help us?

Kitty: There's one more thing. What really worries me is the Unhealthy Fruit trees growing far away from the Fortress, like in Kirbyland. Most of the others are in inaccessible areas, far out of reach, but the problem is that the negative energy is primarily around the Fortress. Corrupted trees elsewhere tells me that maybe the Worldcore has been corrupted.

SilentLoner: The Worldcore? You've talked about it before, but what is it, exactly?

Kitty: The Worldcore is basically what makes Kayinopia run. Every Delicious Fruit tree, every spike, every deathtrap, it's all controlled by the Worldcore, although indirectly. It keeps the landscape alive. It's tremendously powerful, and filled with Kayin's genius.

dsk: So where is it?

Kitty: That's the problem. Kayin told me about it, and even showed it to me, but he never told me where he put it...he gave me some cryptic clues about where it is, but I don't understand them. He said "a core should be at the core", and he told me right before he left that he "put it in the safest place possible."

SilentLoner: Well, what's the center of Kayinopia?

[SilentLoner pulls a map off of a table, but Kitty takes it out of his hand]

Kitty: Don't bother. That won't work.

SilentLoner: Why not?

Kitty: Because I know there are still many areas of Kayinopia that have yet to be discovered, so we wouldn't be able to figure out the real center unless we knew all of them. Plus, I already tried calculating the center, and there wasn't anything there I could see.

dsk: So we're fucked?

Kitty: No, I think there's one thing that can find the Worldcore.

SilentLoner: What's that?

Kitty: Often, as Kayin was creating this world, he would write in a book. And he kept writing in it as he was here. But it wasn't just a journal; it was like a...prophetic book. It wasn't just a book, it was more than that. It had power. It was like one of his other artifacts. But he told me he was leaving it behind for someone to discover.

dsk: So you think this book might tell us where the Worldcore is?

Kitty: Yes. But more importantly, I know who has the book, even if I don't know where they are.

SilentLoner: Who?

Kitty: Kwiftee has it. On the day he left Hometown those years ago, I remember a book slipping out of his backpack. He put it back in, but I saw it. It was too old to be anything besides Kayin's book.

SilentLoner: But that doesn't help us at all. No one has seen Kwiftee in years, just like Venser, Arkhanno, Evan, Angrystu, Amber, and all those other Regulars that left.

dsk: Well, Amber came back for a while, even though he left again.

SilentLoner: You get the point.

Kitty: That's true, but I think I have another lead. See, when I went to the Admin Board to check on the status of the Bosses, two things were out of the ordinary. First, Dracula's energy level was high, and Mechabirdo 2.0's system messages were strange. They were messed up, but it wasn't that some were just missing - they were modified. The only person I know who could possibly have done that is Venser. As for Dracula's energy level, I'm not sure what to make of it, but the Mechabirdo 2.0 change is more important.

dsk: You think Venser was messing with a Boss?

Kitty: Exactly. And since Venser has been gone even longer than Kwiftee, he may know where Kwiftee is - or at least where to start looking.

SilentLoner: When did the messages change? If we can't catch Venser before he vanishes off the known areas of Kayinopia, we'll never find him.

Kitty: That's a problem. They changed yesterday.

dsk: Yesterday? He could be miles away from Mechabirdo 2.0 by now.

Kitty: Maybe. Or maybe he's still close. That's why you, dsk, are going to go look for him.

dsk: Just me? Shouldn't we all go?

Kitty: No. Silent and I have different missions.

SilentLoner: What's my mission?

Kitty: You are going to warn Hometown first that they should stay in Hometown. I know we tell them that all the time, but the Unhealthy Fruits are not safe. After you do that, I want you to look for the Unhealthy Fruit tree in Kirbyland and get a sample somehow. Liquid was given some kind of container, but I don't know how well that will work. Just get a sample, and if you see the Regulars looking to get a sample, you can help them too. That sample may tell us some things if we analyze it.

dsk: So what are you doing, Kitty?

Kitty: I'm going to see if I can convince the Bosses to give me some of Kayin's artifacts. Some of them will be extremely helpful to us.

SilentLoner: You really think they'll give them to you?

Kitty: Probably not. It's against Kayin's orders, but Kayin's orders were also to assist me when possible, so I may be able to convince one or two of them.

dsk: If I'm going to be searching for Venser, I'd better get going.

Kitty: Good luck, dsk. Come back in a few days if you can't find him.

[dsk exits stage left]

SilentLoner: So you want me to just warn Hometown? Should I tell them anything else?

Kitty: If you think there's something you can tell them that might help them, go ahead, but your main objective is to get that sample.

SilentLoner: Very well. Good luck to you, Kitty.

Kitty: And you as well, Silent.

[SilentLoner exits stage left. Blackout]
