Years went by since the first Mortal Kombat tournament and the fighters of Earth Realm have endured many hardships, from the battle against emperor Shao Khan to the rise of Onaga our fighters have both increased and dwindled in numbers now we’re down to five. The first of the team is of coarse Earth Realm’s on guardian Raiden god of thunder, Kung Loa of the temple of the Order of light, and two unlikely candidates Sub-Zero of the Lin Kuei and Scorpion of the Ninja Clan Shirai Ryu. This is Earth Realm’s final hope, and there is another to help in their crusade for justice.
Chapter 1: The new order of justice and new aura of darkness
Enter Kung Loa returning to the temple from his journey to find the order of light’s newest member. It is dawn and Raiden appears to greet Kung Loa and the new comer.
Raiden: Aw Kung Loa, welcome back I see you have found him; welcome new comer I hope you find Earth Realm to be very welcoming. The monks of the temple are very excited to meet the last of the chosen ones.
Kung Loa looks to Raiden as though he needed to tell him something in private. Raiden nods his head and looks towards the new comer.
Raiden: Well why don’t you make yourself comfortable and Ill have one of the monks show you to your chambers, and I say again, welcome.
The newcomer bows and is escorted away by a monk, and now Kung Loa and Raiden are alone.
Raiden: I know what you are going to say, and I know it’s peculiar but he is part of the prophecy.
Kung Loa: I’ve had it! All this time you’ve been telling us about the prophecy, how we can restore order and how I can save Lu and the others, but now I’m not so sure, I’m so confused after my journey and the newcomer, Dekuto, is a Tarakatan, a Nomad, one of Baraka’s people, but he’s so different and I think you know why. Care to explain?
Raiden: Yes, I do know but I will start by explaining a little of the prophecy to you, if you don’t mind.
Kung Loa: sigh…Go ahead.
Raiden: Thank you. Now of course you know the first part of the prophecy the great elements that balance the realms, fire, water, air, earth, ice, thunder, wood, and metal.
Well with those elements come great virtues, freedom, courage, honor, faith, wisdom, loyalty, riotousness, and justice. Well in ancient times there were warriors of an Outworld tribe called the Akoku Oroga in their language it means spirit keepers. During this time there was a war, Onaga the emperor versus the rebels including the Akoku Oroga also a band of rebel nomads, Dekuto’s ancestors who joined the Akoku Oroga. They taught Dekuto’s people the power of their elemental spirit and a direct descendent of Dekuto was chosen to be one of the warriors along with yours, Sub zero’s and Scorpion’s ancestors.
Kung Loa: Wait. You mean to tell me that my ancestors were Outworlders!
Raiden: Well, yea… After the defeat of Onaga, Shoa Khan came to power, depleted of energy the Akoku Oroga tribe disbanded, all except for the Tarakatans fled to Earth realm and prophesized that their descendents shall rise and bring justice to Outworld once again. That’s where you and the others come in, you must uncover your elemental powers, restore order to Outworld and prepare for the next great evil to rise from the shadows and reveal its terrible wrath.
Kung Loa: uh yea speaking of great evil, Noob Saibot and a horde of fierce unworldly creatures occupy Outworld. I think the evil has revealed itself.
Raiden: Not entirely.
A great noise rattles through the temple as Noob Saibot former Harold of the nether realm, and brother to Sub-Zero breaks through the main door of the temple.
Noob Saibot: Surrender Raiden or we will destroy the temple along with these pathetic temple monks.
Raiden: what is the meaning of this? This is a crime against the will of the Elder gods themselves. You will pay dearly.
Noob: Sorry but the rules of the Elder gods no longer apply. HAHAHAHAAAAAAAAA!!!
Sub Zero rushes upstairs.
Sub-Zero: What’s going on up here...? Noob…
Sub Zero looks to see his brother and former comrade standing and demanding control of the temple, he immediately freezes the ground Noob is standing on, Noob Slips. Raiden summons an illuminating force of energy and hurls it at the horde of beast like warriors that accompanied Noob in the raid. Now Noob is tied up by Kung Loa, and the horde retreats to dark shadows from which they came, back to their dark master that spawned them, and to inform him of their defeat.
Deep in the dark thickets of Outworld a dark sorcerer plots to takeover Outworld and the other realms using ancient forces of energy. Right now it seems that the forces of light have the upper hand but Lord Zoga has a few tricks up his sleeves.
Lord Zoga: What! So the prophecy is coming to pass, the four warriors have been brought together… no matter I will still prevail, with a little help of course.
Lord Zoga chants and uses his dark energy to reanimate the most destructive warriors in all the realms.
Lord Zoga: Rise spirits of the Nether Realm return once again to the plain of the living. Rise Quan chi! Rise Shang Tsung! Rise Shoa Khan! Rise Onaga.
Lord Zoga has just brought back the most dangerous warriors in all the realms. What plan I s he conjuring up against the order of light find out next time in chapter 2: Resurrection and Destruction.
