I just got round to finishing s.2 Ivory Cape.
As the gently undulating heroes have another clunky conversation, Vivica pops up to utter the immortal line:
“What exactly is our goal?”
If anyone can screenshot this, I would dearly love it as a Moderator meme that I can drop on off topic posts
But it also got me thinking.
i) I really hope you guys haven’t slaughtered your way across a third of a continent without an actual OBJECTIVE
ii) if you guys don’t know, then perhaps we can invent one for a big reveal!
Here’s some ideas:
it was all a dream… classic lazy film writing. Derric wakes up to find that Atlantis was just a dream and it’s another wet Monday morning. He goes to work, double-hatting as forum moderator and ham mulcher at the Stronghold.
It was Richard all along! And he’d have got away with it too, if it wasn’t for you pesky kids! Vivica pulls a rubber mask of a stegodon to find it was actually Richard and the whole thing is an insurance scam. Somehow.
Heart of Darkness. à la Apocalypse Now, our heroes are whittled down until just Elena remains and becomes an acolyte-prisoner of Colonel Kurz/the Dark Lord. She witnesses bizarre and bloody rituals, eventually butchering the Dark Lord only to replace him as head of the lemur cult as her grip on sanity finally evaporates.
