Dungeon Crawl! << Grief-Bringer >> Masters Never Quit

(In the Munce Home-Cave, the Munce are in an uproar.)

Munce: Not good! Not good idea at all!

Munce: Is bad idea!

Murt: Truce meeting with Geckles is trap! Tricky Geckle trap!

Jay: Guys, it's not a trap! The Geckles aren't your enemies!

Lloyd: The Skull Sorcerer is your enemy, and the only chance we have to defeat them is to work together! (The Munce continue fighting.)

Nya: It's no use. They're not listening!

Murtessa: You must make them listen!

Nya: Oh, it's you.

Jay: Nya, be nice!

Nya: She attacked me with a giant spiked club, Jay. Remember?

Jay: Yeah, but if you hold every little thing against a person, you won't make any friends at all.

Nya: (sighs) Make them listen how?

Murtessa: Munce are proud, strong. They respect only power.

Nya: Hmm. (She uses Water to get their attention.) Alright, you Munce. Listen up! We are going to that truce meeting, and there will be peace, if I have to fight every last one of you! Is that clear? (The Munce agree.) Good. Now let's get this show on the road!

(In the Geckle Strong-Cave, the Geckles are arguing as well.)

Groko: This meeting is a trap! A treacherous Munce ambush!

Garpo: Hear, hear!

Ginkle: I propose we ambush them!

Kai: Order. Order in the court.

Zane: I do not believe they're listening.

Kai: Ugh. (He uses Fire to get the Geckles' attention.) Thank you. Now, I propose that we trust the new Munce queen, whoever she is, and go to the truce meeting!

Zane: (He throws a pebble at Kai's head.) Hear, hear! (Kai frowns at him.) I am attempting to follow Geckle parliamentary procedures.

Groko: What if you're wrong?

Ginkle: Yeah! How do you know?

Gulch: We could settle the matter by slug.

Kai: How do you settle a matter by slug?

("Slug" turns out to be a slug race.)

Gulch: On your mark, get set, slow!

Ginkle: Go, Brown! You can do it!

Garpo: Go go go! Brown for the win!

Zane: What is the purpose of this?

Gulch: It's simple. If the gray slug wins, you're right, and the Munce can be trusted. If the brown slug wins, you're wrong, and the Munce cannot be trusted. Only the slugs know.

Gleck: Please, I am Gleck. I must speak to you most urgently. (He takes them out of the other Geckles' sight.) I believe you. I do not think the Munce are evil. I do not think they stole our blade. But, nobody listens to me. (Kai notices his necklace.) I'm only Gleck.

Kai: Okay, uh, Gleck, don't take this the wrong way, but you're the little purple creature Cole saw in the palace, aren't you?

Gleck: Yes. I did not mean to scare him. I was looking for Gilly. I heard that the Elemental Master of Earth was invited to Shintaro, but I was wrong.

Zane: Gleck, may I see your necklace?

Gleck: Will you give it back? It is my most prized possession, given to me by Gilly herself.

Zane: Of course, I promise. (Gleck hands him the locket.)

Kai: Hey, those are Cole's parents! Lou, and - and - ah, what's his mom's name again?

Zane: Lilly.

Kai and Zane: (gasp) Lilly is Gilly!

Gleck: You - you know her? Oh, joyous news! Will you tell her the Geckles need her help again? Please!

Kai: Ah, Gleck, I'm not sure how to say this, but the woman you called Gilly passed away a while ago. (Gleck's lips tremble at the news.) I'm sorry.

Skull of Hazza D'ur: A meeting between Munce and Geckles. They plan a truce. And disobedient voices resonate through the mountain.

Vangelis: What? Who is to blame for this?

Skull of Hazza D'ur: The Ninja. They yet live. You know what must be done. (Vangelis transforms into the Skull Sorcerer and flies down the pit, to a tomb guarded by Awakened Warriors.) Wake up, skulls!

Skull Sorcerer: Open it! Bring the bones back to life, Hazza D'ur. Bring back Grief-Bringer!

Skull of Hazza D'ur: Rise. Rise! (The Grief-Bringer comes back to life.)

Gleck: Oh no! The brown slug is winning! That means the Munce cannot be trusted!

Kai: We have to do something, Zane! Use your powers, make an ice slide for the gray slug!

Zane: That would be cheating!

Kai: It's not cheating, Zane. It's a white lie!

Zane: A white lie?

Kai: Yeah, it means we're doing it for a good reason! To stop a war. To defeat the Skull Sorcerer! (The brown slug is almost past the finish line.) Oh no!

Zane: You are implying that a lie can be good if done for a good reason? I do not accept that supposition.

Kai: Ugh. Zane, what about the time you impersonated Clutch Powers to get into the Explorers Club?

Zane: Clutch Powers was hospitalized and unable to go himself. It was necessary.

Kai: Right, we did it because we had to! Because there was no other way. Argh, we're running out of time! Ugh. It's over. It's all over!

Zane: Very well. I accept the necessity of a white lie. (The gray slug screams as it is propelled all the way past the finish line)

Kai: Wow. Wow, wow, wow, what a race. Well, the slugs have decided! Meeting's on.

(Kai and Zane lead the Geckles to the meeting in their Hero suits.)

Zane: I do not see the necessity of this armor.

Gulch: Merely a precaution. Just in case it is an ambush. The slugs are never wrong, but I suppose there's always a first.

Kai: What do you know about this new Munce queen? What's she like?

Gulch: I have no idea, except the Munce consider her very fierce and very ... ugly.

(Nya is being carried by the Munce on the way to the truce meeting.)

Nya: Is it really necessary for them to carry me?

Murt: You are queen of the Munce. Very important position. Yes, it is necessary.

Lloyd: Hang in there, Nya. Just a little further.

Nya: Kai?

Kai: Nya? (They embrace.)

Lloyd: Guys!

Jay: Boy, are we glad to see you!

Zane: Lloyd!

Geckle: Protect the chancellor!

Munce: Protect the queen!

Kai: Whoa, whoa, easy, guys! Stand down.

Nya: Yeah, relax. It's okay.

Gulch: You know the Munce queen?

Kai: Yeah, it's my sister. And she's not that ugly.

Nya: Excuse me?!

Kai: Uh, long story. Gulch, Gleck, relax, guys. Nothing's gonna happen, okay? (The Grief-Bringer roars in the distance.)

Gulch: That sound!

Murtessa: No! It is not possible!

Nya: What? What is it?

Gulch and Murtessa: Grief-Bringer!

Nya: Run! (The Geckles and Munce scream as they run away.)

Lloyd: Get them to safety!

Nya: What about you?

Lloyd: We're gonna try to slow it down. Come on, Zane.

Zane: (He uses Ice to block the Grief-Bringer's attacks.) I - I can't hold it!

Nya: (They halt in front of lava.) Oh no!

Kai: Oh, what do we do now?

Gleck: It's easy, like this! (He grabs a rope and swings to the other side.)

Kai: Well, if Jay can do it, how hard can it be? (He slams into the rock face.) Help!

Nya: Grab my hand!

Zane: Lloyd! I cannot hold it much longer!

Lloyd: On three, let it go! Trust me. On three! One, two, three! (The ice shatters, and Lloyd blasts the Grief-Bringer with Energy, then collapses.)

Zane: Lloyd! (The Grief-Bringer reassembles itself.) We must run!

Nya: Come on! Swing across!

Skull Sorcerer: Look at them, fleeing like rats. But they cannot escape.

Skull of Hazza D'ur: Grief will come to you all!
