Quickening their pace, struggling to keep up with the crate man, darkness became thicker and the air grew mustier with each twist and turn.
The only light source is a faint glow at the end of the tunnel.
Nearing the end, they hear voices. Moving slowly and cautiously, they peer around the corner to see what lies ahead.
A vast chamber filled with white-armored soldiers and a cloaked figure sitting in a chair meet their view. Krizt is tied up and surrounded by guards, her eyes pleading for help.
“We need to get her out of there,” crate man's voice low and urgent to the rest, eyes flashing with tenacity.
The group nods, preparing for battle. Sensing them, the dark figure turns his head, his eyes glowing red under his hood.
“So you’ve come to challenge me,” he sneers. “You’re brave,” rising from the chair, “But you should've stayed away,” snarling, brandishing a wicked-looking blade.
Rez and crate man step forward, at the ready. The others notice that he's not imposing as they thought. He seems weak, almost frail, like he's been drained of his energy.
The group charges on, the battle unrelenting. King Palvaxius proves to be more than a match for them.
Krizt’s cries grow louder as the struggle rages on. Just when it seems like they have the advantage, they are disarmed. Raising his sword, the King is ready to strike the final blow.
Accepting their fate, crate man releases a last burst of energy, knocking Palvaxius to the ground. Stunned, the group rushes towards Krizt.
Met with the colossal army of troopers, they exchange blows and laser blasts.
Thinking they have won, Palvaxius appears again, his cloak billowing around him, blade glinting in hand. He's wounded, but far from defeated.
The group braces themselves for the final showdown, knowing that this fight will determine the fate of their world. As they prepare to face their greatest challenge yet, a sudden explosion rocks the cavern, everything goes dark.
