A green glow starts coming from below ground inside the Palace, and several Shuigang Soldiers come to investigate. Suddenly, the unknown ship comes out from under the floor and charges through the palace. As it destroys several columns, it deploys Shade Elites which overwhelm the soldiers. A helicopter comes and fires numerous rockets at the Shade Elites, until Lord Brevon reveals himself. The soldiers open fire on him, but has no effect, much to their shock. Brevon brandishes a poison covered knife.
Brevon: My turn.
The screen turns black as Brevon rips through the soldiers and helicopters. He and his Troops are then seen marching forward towards the King of Shuigang, who is seen sitting on the throne.
King: How did this happen? Our walls are impenetrable!
Brevon: Your floor isn't.
King: Well then... if death is what you seek, then I will gladly provide it!
The King stands up from the throne, brandishes a large axe and leaps down towards Brevon. He destroys at least on Shade Elite, but Brevon easily dodges the attack. The other Shade Elites then fire several shots at the King, wounding him. Brevon walks forward to the King and brandishes his knife.
Brevon: There's no reason to be hostile, your majesty. In fact, you should be proud. Your son is moments away from inheriting the throne.
The King's son, Prince Dail, is revealed, being held captive by the Shade Elites.
Dail: I tried, father!
King: What do you want with us?!
Brevon: How shall I explain this... I'm gifting your son with my knowledge. It will make him the most powerful ruler your world has ever known... and he will answer to no one but me.
Brevon beheads the King as Dail helplessly watches in horror.
Dail: No... MURDERER!
Dail dashes towards Brevon in anger, but the Warlord easily grabs him by the throat.
Brevon: Prepare the snatcher.
The Shade Elites leave the throne room as Syntax, a Robotic AI, comes towards Dail.
The screen turns black as a pulsing sound is heard, causing Dail to scream in pain.
Magister: A crisis has befallen our world. For centuries, we have depended on the Kingdom Stone... but it's strength is fading. It cannot keep up with our growing demand for energy. The prince of Shuigang, poisoned with madness over the death of his father, has spread machines across the land to steal energy from other kingdoms. Tensions are growing, and I fear that war may be inevitable.
The screen fades black, then turns white, going to the Game's Title screen as the Main Theme plays.
