The Screen descends to show the Kingdom of Shuigang, and an unknown ship flying towards the Palace. The Scene then changes to show the interior of the Palace, where the Soldiers are investigating a strange, green glow coming from out of the floor. Suddenly, the unknown ship breaks out of the floor and charges through the Palace. As it breaks through several columns, it deploy a squad of Shade Elites to attack the resisting Soldiers, overwhelming them without difficulty. A Chopper flies in to provide air support by firing missiles at the Shade Elites, until Lord Brevon, the leader of the invading forces, reveals himself. The Soldiers fire on him, but their shots had no effect, much to their shock. Brevon grins as he brandishes a poison-coated knife, ready to make his move.
The Screen turns black as Brevon rips through the Soldiers and Choppers without difficulty. He and his troops are then seen marching through the Palace towards the Throne Room, where the King of Shuigang is waiting for them. The King stands up from the Throne as Brevon and his troops approach him, surprised by how easily these invaders have broken through his defenses.
How did this happen?! Our walls are impenetrable!
Your floor isn't.
Well then. . . if death is what you seek, then I shall gladly provide it!
Brandishing a large axe, the King leaps forward and attempts to attack Brevon. He destroys at least one Shade Elite, but misses the Warlord, who signals the other Shade Elites to fire on the King, wounding him. Brevon then walks up to the injured King, brandishing his knife.
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 shown being held captive, and the King is immediately stricken with fear.
I tried, father!
What do you want with us?!
How shall I explain this. . . I'm gifting your son with my knowledge.
It will make him the most powerful ruler you world has ever known. . . and he will answer to no one but me.
Brevon takes his knife and beheads the King without mercy. Dail helplessly watches in horror as his Father is killed right in front of him.
(gasps) No. . .
Dail attempts to attack Brevon, but the Warlord easily grabs the Prince by the throat.
Prepare the snatcher.
As the Shade Elites leave to seize control of the Palace, Syntax, a floating Robotic AI, enters the Throne Room and approaches Brevon and Dail. The Screen turns black as Dail screams in pain under a pulsating sound.
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 demands 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 fade to black then to white, going to the Game's Title Screen as the Main Theme begins to play.
