********************************************
*         Shaolin Temple - China           *
********************************************
Scorpion: You will fail. Hahahaha.

Scorpion runs...

After finding Scorpion...

Scorpion: The map is mine Sub-Zero. Fight!

********************************************
*           Lin Kuei headquarters          *
********************************************
    Successful in his mission, Sub-Zero 
    escapes from the Shaolin temples... 

         And returns to the secret 
          Lin Kuei headquarters, 
          hidden high above the 
        mountains of northern China. 

Sub-Zero: Grandmaster, in honor of the Lin Kuei, 
          I bring you this sacred Map of Elements. 

Grandmaster: Once again, our most cunning assassin and 
             thief is successful. At ease, my 
             Lin Kuei warrior.

Quan Chi: Greetings, I see the ninja has been 
          successful in retrieving my map... 
          as I have forseen. 

Sub-Zero: Let's get something straight... 
          I am not a ninja. I am Lin Kuei. 
          Scorpion was a ninja! 

Quan Chi: Ah yes, your Japanese counterpart. 
          It's unfortunate that you happened 
          upon him in your battle with the 
          pesky Shaolin monks. 

Sub-Zero: Scorpion was tipped off... he knew I was 
          breaking into that temple, and if he weren't 
          there - there wouldn't have been a battle! 
          You are responsible for this sorcerer! 

Quan Chi: I admit... I also retained Scorpion's 
          services. In case you failed, I needed 
          some assurances. 

Sub-Zero: Well, your peace of mind almost cost 
          me this mission. 

Grandmaster: Enough! Quan Chi... what about our 
             payment? 

Quan Chi: Oh yes, I almost forgot... In this bag 
          are bones of your arch nemesis, 
          and leader of Scorpion's ninja clan, 
          the Shirai Ryu. 

Grandmaster: And, this is the skull of the leader 
             of the Shirai Ryu? 

Quan Chi: It most certainly is... I stripped it of 
          its flesh myself. 

Grandmaster: Ho! Our ancient foes have been vanquished 
             in one transaction. 

Quan Chi: I've personally made certain that every 
          last remnant of their clan has been 
          eliminated... forever. 

Grandmaster: You see Sub-Zero... you can trust a 
             sorcerer sometimes. 
             Now you will use the map on your 
             next mission. Quan Chi has once 
             again retained your services. 

Sub-Zero: Fine, give me the details. 

Quan Chi: This map you stole... it shows the way 
          to a temple which predates man's 
          recorded history on earth. 
          For thousands of years, 
          the Temple of Elements has been 
          hidden in what are now known as 
          the Himalayan Mountains of Nepal. 
          This map is the only evidence 
          of its existence. 

Sub-Zero: Fine... I get to the temple and then 
          what? What's inside? 

Quan Chi: A small amulet... worthless to you, but... 
          let's just say it has great sentimental 
          value to me. 

Sub-Zero: If it's so precious, why don't you get 
          it yourself? 

Quan Chi: I cannot enter the temple until the four 
          elements within its walls have been 
          defeated. 
          And I am not on the best of terms with 
          the gods of your realm... especially 
          your god of thunder 

Sub-Zero: Tell me about these elements. 

Quan Chi: They are the four elements which 
          compromise the very existence of your 
          realm... Wind, Earth, Water, and Fire. 
          With your mastery of the element of cold, 
          you have an advantage that no other 
          human has... the ability to defeat 
          the elements. I have forseen this... 

     Sub-Zero scales the gorges of the 
       massive Himalayan Mountains. 

      There he discovers the entrance 
       into the Temple of Elements. 

********************************************
*           Temple of Elements             *
********************************************
  Sub-Zero ascends the staircase leading 
  to what he believes to be the ancient 
        amulet he is looking for.

     As he approaches, he studies the 
     inscriptions that trace its edges 
     and prepares to take hold of the 
      ancient artifact, never before
     touched by the hands of a mortal. 

      But, before he can get to it... 
     An unexpected visitor manages to 
      take hold of the amulet first.

Quan Chi: The amulet... I have Shinnok's amulet! 

Sub-Zero: Who's amulet? 

Quan Chi: He is my deity, ruler of the NETHEREALM 
          and soon destroyed of your Earth realm. 
          This is definitely Shinnok's amulet! 

Sub-Zero: What are you talking about? 

Quan Chi: This amulet is the key to Shinnok's power 
          as an Elder God. When returned to him 
          he will retain his powers and be freed 
          from the confines of the Netherealm. 

Sub-Zero: ...Destroyer of all realms?? I think you 
          are insane. That amulet isn't worth 
          the bronze it's molded from. 

Quan Chi: Believe what you will, Sub-Zero. 
          Good-bye... ninja. 

       Sub-Zero watches as the energy 
           dissipates into nothing. 

       Then, suddenly, a blue bolt of 
    electricity strikes the ground with 
      thunderous fury. A new shape 
            begins to form...

   But this time it's the god of thunder, 
                  RAYDEN. 

Rayden: Do you realize what you've done?? 

Sub-Zero: I was just earning my living. 

Rayden: Your clan's ignorance and greed will 
        cost this entire realm. You must 
        now set things straight. 

Sub-Zero: Quan Chi could simply be a lunatic 
          sorcerer. I've never heard of an 
          elder god named Shinnok or of a 
          place called the Netherealm. 

Rayden: Well, you'd better start believing in 
        both, because you're going to the 
        Netherealm and you're going to 
        bring the amulet back. 
        We must act quickly. I have no 
        dominion in the Netherealm... You 
        are reality's only hope. 

Sub-Zero: I'll do it, Thunder God... but only 
          because I have no choice. 

Rayden: Then stand back... 

      Rayden prepares to open a portal 
     into the Netherealm. Lightning and 
     warped space converge as he points 
      his staff at the center of the 
          portal's surging energy. 

Rayden: This is a portal into the Netherealm. 
        Once through, follow Quan Chi and 
        try to get the amulet before he 
        gives it to Shinnok. 
        I also offer this advice... beware the 
        Brothers of the Shadow. 
        The Netherealm is a place for lost souls. 
        If you fail, your soul will join theirs... 
        and so will the souls of this 
        entire realm. 

    Sub-Zero charges through the portal. 

********************************************
*             Prison of Souls              *
********************************************
   Captured and now imprisoned, Sub-Zero 
     peers out of the bars of his cell 
          and ponders his escape. 
   He fails to notice the shadowy figure 
         of a warrior behind him. 

Warrior: Escape is not possible. 

Sub-Zero: Who are you? 

Warrior: I am a dead man. But somehow you 
         have retained your mortality, which 
         would mean you are vulnerable 
         to death. 

Sub-Zero: Wait... I know your voice. 

Scorpion: Yessss... I am Scorpion. You killed 
          me in cold blood. 

Sub-Zero: I had no choice. If I had not stolen 
          that map I would be the dead one. 

Scorpion: But my clan and family would still be 
          alive! 

Sub-Zero: What??

Scorpion: It wasn't enough to kill me... you 
          had to destroy every last remnant 
          of my being... you are responsible 
          for the massacre of my entire clan! 

Sub-Zero: You're mistaken... Quan Chi is responsible 
          for their deaths! 

Scorpion: Words will not save you Lin Kuei 
          warrior... prepare for your final 
          battle! 

********************************************
*           Bridge of Immortality          *
********************************************
     High atop a tower, overlooking the 
        prison's crushed gates, a lone 
     figures watches as Sub-Zero makes 
            his way to freedom.

     Her name is Kia, and she spies the 
          mortal through binoculars. 

Kia: Well, he's definitely a mortal. His soul 
     is still contained within his body. 

    She is joined by her fellow warriors - 
    Jataaka and Sareena. Together they are 
          Quan Chi's personal assassins. 

Jataaka: A mortal can't exist here with his 
         soul intact! 

Kia: Unless Shinnok allowed it to be. 

Sareena: I'll inform Quan Chi. The two of you 
         continue to track him. 

     Shinnok's fortress looms over the 
             Sea of Immortlity. 

     Within its walls, Quan Chi is well 
        aware of Sub-Zero's plight as 
        Sareena enters his sanctuary. 

Quan Chi: Approach, Sareena.
 
Sareena: Sir, a mortal has escaped from the 
         prison of souls. He is headed 
         toward the Sea of Immortality. 

Quan Chi: A mortal? 

Sareena: Yes, a mortal... with the ability to freeze. 

Quan Chi: Alert the Keepers and send a full 
          garrison to intercept. Make sure 
          that he does not cross the bridge. 

Sareena: The Keepers? But he is just a mortal. 
         Certainly I can dispose of him myself.

Quan Chi: Do not question me Sareena... 
          and more importantly... 
          do not fail me. 
          We have toyed with the ninja long enough. 

********************************************
*                 Fortress                 *
********************************************
    Quan Chi waits patiently as Sub-Zero 
         teleports into his chamber. 

Quan Chi: Welcome to my home, Sub-Zero. 
          If you're still looking for the amulet, 
          you can find it at the pyramid's 
          apex... around Shinnok's neck. 
          You've arrived a little late. 

Sub-Zero: I was busy. 

Quan Chi: Don't you realize why Rayden sent 
          you? The Netherealm is a place 
          for evil beings. 
          You could not exist here unless you were 
          tainted with evil. You belong here. 
          Join my Brothers of the Shadow and 
          worship our lord, Shinnok. 

Sub-Zero: Never sorcerer! 

Quan Chi: Then, so it shall be... ninja.


After Quan Chi is defeated and if a fatality was not performed 
on Sareena...

Sub-Zero: Why did you help me? 

Sareena: You are still mortal... that means 
         you can escape the Netherealm. 

Sub-Zero: There won't be anywhere to go if I 
          don't get the amulet back. 

Sareena: Take me with you... I've waited an 
         eternity to escape. 

Sub-Zero: You don't understand. I can't leave 
          without the... 

      At that moment a searing beam of 
    energy cuts through Sareena's chest.

    She screams with pain as she falls 
            into Sub-Zero's arms. 

Sub-Zero: Sareena! 
          Who are you, old man?? 

Shinnok: It is I, Shinnok, Sareena was dealt 
         with as I would have dealt with all 
         my children of this realm. 
         But you, Sub-Zero, will be treated 
         as a bitter enemy. 

********************************************
*                  Ending                  *
********************************************
     Light and warped space converge as 
      the silhouetted form of Sub-Zero 
       comes bursting through - with 
         Shinnok's amulet in hand. 

      He lands with a thud onto the 
      rocky floor at Rayden's feet. 
    Smoke billows from his body as he 
   struggles to get up. Out of breath, 
        he does his best to speak. 

Sub-Zero: Here... the amulet. 

Rayden: Impressive, Sub-Zero. Perhaps you will 
        reconcile your reckless past after all. 

Sub-Zero: That's it? Not even a thank you? 

Rayden: Thank yourself for undoing a problem 
        you created. 

Sub-Zero: One question? Quan Chi told me that 
          you sent me because my soul was 
          tainted with evil... is that true? 

Rayden: You are a superb warrior, Sub-Zero. 
        But only you are in control of your 
        destiny. 
        Not even the gods can alter your chosen 
        path of life. 

Sub-Zero: Was that a yes, or a no? 

Rayden: That was a yes... 
        But only you can change it. 

     Mist all but covers the Mongolian 
    ruins as the sun struggles to rise 
            from its slumber. 

Sub-Zero: I vow to serve and obey the Lin Kuei

Grandmaster: Welcome back, my warrior. I have a 
             new undertaking for you. 
             It seems your recent exploits have caught 
             the eye of yet another sorcerer. I'd 
             like you to meet the retainer of 
             your services.
             His name is Shang Tsung. He would like 
             you to compete in a small tournament... 
             called Mortal Kombat.
