“It seems the zmobies have gotten out of me control,” scowled King Daggerbeard. Looking through his glass far-away-looky-thingy, he could see that by now they had swarmed across most of the islands, and he wasn’t exactly the biggest fan.
“No matter, shouldn’t be too long before me plan is finally in motion.”
He paced the room a bit, distraught that neither Banner nor Stripes were around to continue the conversation, and all of the guards had been sent off for some last minute chalk-repair for his plan to come to fruition. Annoyed, he kicked over a chest of assorted junk, but strangely sought comfort in its contents – a small beaten teddy bear missing both of its eyes skidded across the ground and King Daggerbeard quickly scooped it up.
“What’s that, me good pal Grand Arbiter Thadeus, the Bear of Blind Judgement,” he inquired, making sure to address his old friend only by his full, official title, and not his common nickname ‘Teddy bear’, “what exactly is my plan ye ask? Well let me tell ye!
Long ago, when I sailed across the open sea, I believed I had truly found me peace. Hard to believe, friend, but back then, people called me Cap’n Bloody Daggerbeard, deadliest pirate to have ever sailed the open sea. Only captured once, but I escaped shortly after stabbin’ the guard through the heart with me beard! Anyways… life was simple, until I finally found the mother load of all treasures, and well, long story short I settled down but me men kept fightin’ over the gold and well… I realized then that me heart didn’t belong to no shiny piece of gold, but to the sea – also haikus, but mostly the sea.
So I came here, ye see. Just north of this here isle is the sunken remains of the Great Waken, a large mythical beast said to bring about the floodin’ of the entire world, or at the very least all of the islands possibly contained within the game of Everything Islands. In short me friend, it brings about piece, and it brings about The End.
Would’ve had the beast resurrected sooner, but some barnacle lovin’ scallywag been kicking over the chalk dust on the ritual lines, and some other minor setbacks got in me way. But no longer! With the people of the isles busy with the zmobies, and fascinated with a carnival they don’t quite understand exists only in a place within themselves and beyond death, nothing can get in my way now.
At least, I don’t think it can. But we’ll see… I know, me friend, that look in yer eyelessness. It’s not over ’til it’s over, but we’ll see…”
