Copyright March 2011

You are now arriving at the planet Lacudra in your personal spacecraft, named Varney. It is an expensive spacecraft, with luxurious goth style interior, to match the unusual outer shape, which looks like a giant vampire head, flying through the darkness of space. When you reach Lacudra, you will hide your spacecraft and meet your contact by shuttle. Then, you will head out for the underground city called the No-Sky-Zone AKA Skyless. Skyless is made up of a vast network, of underground tunnels ruled by violent gangs. Your mission is to bring back the abducted Parker Peridot, daughter of CEO Nathan Peridot. Reward money is 20 million credits, enough to buy a capsule home and retire.
Skyless is a dangerous place, but your confident because you are a martial arts expert, belonging to the order of the Dark Combat Monks.
There is a cobra with a skull face on your knife handle. This is your specialty weapon, the Cobra 200 Lightning Knife, it has a hyper charged blade, that crackles a destructive, electrical discharge upon impact, combined with it's razor sharp edge, the lightning knife is feared throughout the galaxy. You smirk as you lay in your coffin bed, because you know this is gonna be one heck of an adventure.
Go to 2

On planet Lacudra...
You meet your contact, a young blonde warrior girl named Tiffany. You almost burst out laughing, because her butt crack seems to be permanently on display. She knows the tunnels of Skyless like the back of her hands. She has heard rumors, of how deadly a knife wielding Dark Combat Monk is. Studying you, she notices the demonic cat face on the back of your dark purple robe. Says it gives her the creeps, as she takes you down to one of the many entrances of Skyless. You ask her if she's armed, she smiles and opens up her purple princess back pack, you see brass knuckles, a telescoping baton, tactical flashlight with an impact crown, and a survival knife complete with compass and sharpening stone.
Do you:

A) Make sure nobody is following you. Did I mention you hate being followed?
Go to 34

B) Time is of the essence, ask her to take a short cut, even if it's risky.
Go to 67

C) Follow her and hold my breath cause she just farted big time!
Go to 12

You take out your public credit card, and offer it to them as a distraction. 5 million credits makes them drool and vulnerable, so you gut open the first guy with your lightning knife switched off. Before they can react, you switch it on, slicing up the second guy into a gurgling mess, the third guy barely gets a scratch, but the electric current makes him scream in pain, the last guy runs for his life. You stop yourself from chasing after him, you want to hunt him down, using logical reasoning, you try to shut down your killer instinct. You've been trained to become a killing machine, but sometimes the off switch is difficult, so you take a moment to meditate, if not you'd end up killing Tiffany, just to be evil.
Go to 17

The backstabbing pirates blast their harpoons through your boat, sinking it rapidly. Right before she completely sinks, you utter the words, "Smile you son of a bitch", and toss a Kunai (Ninja dagger) at Captain Orion, who easily dodges it. Treading water, You see the Captain standing there victoriously, he aims his Blunderbuss right at you, then gives a devilish laugh and commands his crew to take off. Leaving you at the mercy of the river. In the past you had faced a tough space pirate before. A man with a hook gauntlet hyper charged with electrons like your lightning knife. He, Ghostbeard was quite the adversary, but this Captain Orion has presented a whole different set of problems. Echoes from the Captain's singing fades by quickly... through the mountain range I go/ the stars and the moon/ they tell me where I'm going...
Go to 41

You analyze the situation, and the strategic options appear inside your mind like a Chess game. Only problem is that he has more pieces. You tell Tiffany that you can't win, you toss your trusty knife aside and stand there unarmed. Taunting you, the masked monk asks if the little one is a pet and if she will deserve his special attentions, he comes in for the kill... just as you expected, you take a cut in exchange for the clinch, from there you score a take down, now in grappling range, much too close for him to use his powers on you. You roll the both of you over to your knife, snatching it quickly twisting it into him, finishing him off. Now that you survived, the fear sets in, because you realize just how close you were to getting killed, you look down and see that you have acquired the mystical ninja mask, the most valuable artifact at your monastery.
Go to 16

The grotesque, death harlequin-esque Leader whooshes his guitar weapon in multiple arcs and spins showing off his skill. You don't flinch and you tell him that you have a saying back home, "If your coming on, come on!"
He responds with, "Ahhh, finally a man worth killing."
The leader begins to pass the guitar weapon from one hand to the other with a most diabolical grin.
Pushing the keypad buttons on the forearm of the gauntlet, the hand opens, revealing a super bright, magnesium flare from the palm, temporarily blinding the hulking leader. You aim and fire the gauntlet at him, a rocket propelled palm strike hits him on the chin, lifting his muscular body off the ground, for a devastating KO.
You have defeated the leader of the Neon Fools and rescued Parker, but now that little fart factory, Tiffany is missing. On your portable communicator, you contact Elizabeth the CRU (Computer Robot Unit) on your spacecraft. You ask Elizabeth for the quickest way out, her advice is to get on the underground river canal, which should be the most direct route back to the surface.
Go to 35

You agree to the bout, you pull out a Chinese ring dagger for the occasion. He points his Randall made sub hilt fighting knife towards you, The Captain confidently takes a fencing stance, with a devilish grin on his face, he awaits for you to make a move. You are quite familiar with his knife fighting style of Pirata. You decide to neutralize his swash buckling sword based style, with the space gypsy style of knife fighting called Mulani Tshurii (Ghost Knife). The Captain has good form, he lunges in with speedy slashes and stabs. Unable to counter back with your knife, instead you frustrate him with numerous low kicks. Furious, the Captain takes out a small metal canister and drops it, you and Tiffany take cover thinking it's a bomb, it explodes like a Pandora's box, unleashing streams of brilliant fire streaks. Only sound and flare, a party canister. The Captain leaves in his theatrical pirate boat, and thanks to his men, he now has Parker in his custody. You hate being tricked. He calls this bout a draw but promises, that next time he will finish you off.
Go to 42

Deciding to keep Parker, you tell the Captain he has no deal, but your not satisfied with losing Tiffany. Suddenly without a moments notice, you jump aboard, slashing away with your trusty knife, electrified bodies splash into the water. You snatch Tiffany, and she quickly manages to sneak in a kick to the balls of one of the Nebula Pirates. Captain Orion was thinking along the same lines as you, for he takes over your ship and makes off with Parker. You try to chase after him with his boat, but you realize too late that he was one step ahead, he had blown out the motor on his boat. You and Tiffany row your way to the ledge. Now you have to pursue them by foot. Tiffany lets out a fart of hot air.
Go to 64

The base of the Wasteland Amazons is shaped like a Dimetrodon dinosaur. It is actually a moving mecha. Nastia Queen of the Amazons takes pilot of the Dimetrodon, from inside the cockpit, you get to see an epic clash of the titans. As the Dimetrodon goes head to head with the monster minotaur, but it is no match. Nastia transforms the dimetrodon into a robot, but to no avail. The head of the dinosaur-bot, pops off and transforms into a mini-bot, attacking the monster minotaur separately, trying to find a weakness. You call Elizabeth, the CRU aboard your spacecraft. You tell her to navigate the Varney down here. In no time, you see your ship, the giant vampire head, hovering above, as it docks with the Amazon's robot forming a new head. Thanks to your flux-capacitor, your spacecraft can transfer more power into the dinosaur-bot.
Do you:

A) Break down the monster minotaur with hand to hand skills so it doesn't have time to fight with tricks.
Go to 45

B) Use the evil laser eyes technique, even though it will render your spacecraft powerless momentarily.
Go to 31

Crimsonia is deeply impressed by your fighting skills, not only will the Wasteland Amazons grant you, and Tiffany, safe passage through their zone, Crimsonia has vowed to travel along side and help you succeed in your quest. Delighted and grateful, you ask them for the whereabouts of Captain Orion's base. They tell you that Captain Orion has no base, he has many boats, and he could be on any one of them. They warn you that under his dashing gentleman demeanor, he is a very dangerous rat, who is highly skilled in Piratan, a very practical pirate knife fighting style, based from sword fencing, consisting of dirty & lethal moves. Captain Orion is also well known for being the only Skyless citizen with a working firearm, a modern Blunderbuss, it fires anything you shove down the barrel, such as sand with jagged rocks and glass pieces. A most feared and practical weapon, in this day and age where bullets are extremely expensive and scarce.
Go to 64

Struggling, your dinosaur-bot catches him with the legs, in the guard position, energy levels are dropping from the core of your dinosaur-bot, it must have been from the throw. The monster minotaur continues to rattle your dinosaur-bot with punches, inside the control room feels like a devastating earthquake, Crimsonia's boobs are punching you in the face, Tiffany has her butt pressed against Crimsonia's face, she cuts the cheese and it's just chaos. If the minotaur continues to pummel your ship, you will have to detach it before it gets smashed to bits, and the dinosaur-bot will not operate as powerfully without your vampire head spacecraft.
Do you:

A) Go for an arm lock, it's your last chance. The guard is a good position to break his arm from the bottom.
Go to 46

B) USE THE LASER EYES! It's now or never!
Go to 31

She tells you to move quickly, because the entrances are always hostile, and her gang the Cosmic Warriors can only secure it for a brief period of time. As you enter, it's a good thing she has a flashlight, because the tunnel is pitch black. She lets out a juicy fart, and then points a remote control towards a large, dark, broken hole in the wall, where you see a mechanical monster of a thing. Its a three-headed mechanical hound named Cerberus 112. She sets the Cerberus 112 on standby mode, which changes the lifeless green eyes to a menacing red.
Do you think:

A) Poseidon could take Zues.
Go to 71

B) Zues is the most powerful of gods period.
Go to 36

The muscular leader of the Neon Fools, snickers when you pull out your lightning knife. He says he's gonna beat you to a living death, and wear your cloak as a diaper after he's done with you. You tell him that if he needs a diaper that badly, to just ask. He laughs psycho-hysterically, and menacingly stares you down. He looks over to his punk clown ho, and licks his lip as if to signify this will be over soon. Swinging his electric guitar weapon, he charges at you with fast combos, he has too much of a reach advantage. He bashes you on the forearm, you hear the bones snap. He drops the pointy part of the guitar on your head and it's all over.
The End, owned by Guitar Weapon!

Through your communicator, Francisco tells the latest news, the CEO's daughter has been abducted by the Neon Fools, she is being transported to their base, the Fun House. Hurrying to the Fun House, you and Tiffany pass through a creepy maze of mirrors, in which you eliminate two more of the Neon Fools, with some help from Tiffany, who kicked one of them in the balls, so hard you could hear them crunch. Rapidly climbing up a lowering stair case, you see the Neon Fools running and jumping through an obstacle course about 20 feet in the air, relentlessly right on their tail, up ahead you see them make a mad dash and spring off a platform, like insane acrobats, leaping through one of five holes in a wall decorated with an evil clown face. Daring you to pursue, they turn on the lethal traps consisting of flames and blades. Tell Tiffany to stay put, you pump yourself up and go for it. Barely making it through the correct hole, it sends you down a big slide, with a circular saw at the end. Hurling yourself off the slide, dodging the saw in the nick of time, you finally get to catch your breath.
Go to 15

The room is dark, suddenly a spot light hits a life size marionette, dangling with chains. Creepy music begins to play as it begins a surreal robotic dance, you feel like your in a nightmare. The dancing stops, and the marionette jumps down from the stage, it is the leader of the Neon Fools. He has a skull clown face, menacing muscular body, he glares at you, and then exhales wicked intent. He tosses you an axe handle, and calls you a worthy adversary to make it this far in the Fun House. He has a large weapon shaped like an electric guitar with spikes, perfect for bashing heads in.
Do you:

A) Get rid of the axe handle and use your knife on him, after all it's your specialty.
Go to 13

B) Using the hi-tech gauntlet is not cheating, this is a street fight.
Go to 6

Tiffany asks you what it's like to be a legendary Dark Combat Monk. You tell her that the monastery has a big library, and you spend all day transcribing, studying, and exercising various disciplines. New comers must take a vow of silence. You start to remember the things so secret you can't tell anyone. The summoning of a demon... then torturous training you had to undergo, to tempt it into striking a deal with you, and ultimately defeat it. The dark gifts you gained were your lethal skills, your conditioned body, and the desire to kill. Oh, the prices you had to pay for these dark gifts...
Go to 21

The two of you proceed further into Skyless, the tunnels now actually have lighting, and there are homeless looking people walking about. A fat, bald man with a mighty mustache, wearing pointy genie shoes, approaches you. He smells like old socks wrapped in lindenberger cheese. You notice that he has a black cane with a skull handle. With a thick middle eastern accent, he explains how it has a secret way to unlock the hidden sword inside. He wants to trade it for Tiffany. Since you don't look satisfied, he throws in a weeks worth of food ration.
Do you:

A) Ignore the dumb ass.
Go to 26

B) Take the sword cane from this loser.
Go to 38

You reach a large open area, that use to be part of a subway, called the Food Court, an open market where you can buy, sell, trade just about anything you want including information, which is why Tiffany brought you here. There are many locals walking around like tourists at a flea market, some have new items, others are munching on, corn dogs, frito pies, fried pickles, and takoyaki (grilled octopus balls). You watch a guy trying to trade a Steven Seagal energy drink for a Yu-Gi-Oh Exodia trading card.
From the corner of your eye, you see a bizarre character approach you, a man wearing a professional wrestling mask. It is a silver mask with tear drop shapes for the eye holes. He gives you a metal suitcase and disappears. You open the suitcase later to find a hi-tech gauntlet with a small screen pad with buttons on it. It also has a letter that says:

This is a prototype of the latest war gauntlet.
It has many functions that you should find useful
in the rescue of my daughter.
I have also hired the UWN
(Underground Wrestlers Network) to aid you.
Just bring her back to me safely!


Nathan Peridot

P.S. Zayt nisht meshuge!

(End of letter)
Go to 20

You pull out your shank, a homemade rusted metal knife, and you tell him that you are from the Hell Cat troop of the order of the Dark Combat Monks and that you declare a shank fight. The Dragon Lord accepts, grabs a sword and breaks it in half forming his shank. Shank fight is the traditional and honorable way between two outlaw warriors to settle things.
He just stands there as you circle him carefully.
Bursting into action, he's on you so fast, he jams your defensive footwork, your lucky that your able to take slash with your hard to cut robe acting like second skin. Your leather bracelet also comes in handy taking a cut for you. It turns into a ground fight with him on top, as you resist with all your might, his shank slowly sinks down towards your throat, your arm with the shank is totally pinned down, slowly but surely, the inevitable blade is coming for your neck. Explosively you bridge him off of you, as he gets up, you sever his hamstrings and finish him off with a Rear Naked Choke Slash. Soaked in blood, you calm down your breathing and take in this moment. For you are the only one. Surge of powerful electrical force hits you in your enlightenment. You feel the earth spinning as one tiny gear, part of a vast whole universe.
Go to 23

She finds a robotic computer "watch dog" named Francisco. You use your public credit card to pay him and with lots of cute lil ati-tute, Francisco tells you that Parker the CEO's daughter has been taken to Castle Wraith. Castle Wraith is the lair of the warlord known as the Dragon Lord, a mysterious man who hides his face, behind a helmet shaped like a dragon's head. He warns you that the Dragon Lord is immortal, and nobody messes with him, he suggests that you should give up your mission. You've heard of the Dragon Lord before, a perverse Samurai of unknown origins, feared throughout the galaxy, he has even quarreled with your brotherhood a few times. His Castle will be protected by a legion of fanatical followers called the Dragon Mongers. Crusaders dressed and armed in medieval attire, they call themselves the second coming of the Knights Templar.
Do you:

A) Head for Castle Wraith, cause your not afraid of anything.
Go to 30

B) This job is too much for you, go scout for some stupid, fearless warriors in a hostile tavern.
Go to 47

Trying to get some sleep, you and Tiffany, lay down on cardboard boxes next to cold concrete walls and floors, you look up at the ceiling and it says in graffiti, "If your an outlaw or just don't like the way society is, come on down to Skyless, our semi-anarchy state should please you."
You paid an old man named Hattoo to keep a lookout, and warn you if anything suspicious happens. Hattoo likes to dance for money, his cup was pretty empty, so he was more than glad to work for you. He sings the lines "Life stinks, life stinks..." as if he's on a broadway show, tapping away, he has some moves. After a few hours sleep, the two of you head out towards Castle Wraith. Your completely surprised to see a huge castle this deep down in the underground tunnels. It looks as magnificent as it does frightening. There is a sign that reads, "Beware of Dragon".
Do you:

A) Go in disguised as a guard.
Go to 56

B) Yippie-ki-yay, sneak in through the air vents.
Go to 33

You un-hood yourself, and say, "My name is Dumot Lamont, commander of the hell cat troops, loyal servant to the Dark Combat Monks, here to rescue Parker Peridot, and I will accomplish my mission, in this life or the next."
As you pull out your knife, the Dragon Lord removes a portion of his head ornament, the spine support/tail part which becomes a jagged club like weapon. He's swinging it around like a home run hitter and you run all over the place making him chase you. After a little while your strategy has worked, he is getting tired, his movements become slower. Your getting tired too, but nowhere near the amount the Dragon Lord is. After he makes a desperate big wide swing which you easily dodge, your able to rush him in and finish him off. You want to remove his helmet mask, but Tiffany tells you to hurry back up into the vent before the guards come in.
Go to 23

You and Tiffany crawl back deep into the ventilation system away from all the rooms, isolated and safe, the two of you decide to wait things out, before heading out of the castle. There are too many guards crawling about like angry ants. Tiffany has a bad gas problem, making it 10x harder to be hiding in this super small vent. You start to sweat really bad when she mentions something about possible diarrhea, 10 min. later she mentions possible explosive diarrhea, you both start to sweat really badly. After spending what seemed like an eternity in the vent, you finally see the chance to run off and hide in a busy area.
Go to 14

With Parker, just the three of you escape the battle royal, and sneak off into a tunnel. Running down the tunnel, soon you find yourselves in a maze. Going left and right, your really lost. Every tunnel way looks the same. It feels like you've been running around in circles like a lab rat.
Parker suggests to climb the walls and head upwards, instead of running around the maze, since Skyless is right under the Herlock-Sholmes metropolis.
Suddenly you are greeted with blinding lights, a custom Toyota RAV4 facing at you guys, its mean lean driving machine that runs on vegetable oil, armed with numerous long spikes welded on the hood and roof, it's the post-apocalyptic dream car. Its license plate reads DRGN SLYR. Looking like a giant porcupine, the car roars its engine, skidding its tires, it comes right at you. You have no choice but to turn left, leading you straight back towards the Castle.
Go to 61

You run for the window and hurl yourself at it, using your whole body like a cannon ball, but to your humiliation, you bounce off the glass, and roll back into the room, laid out on the floor, ready to make a snow angel. The Dragon Lord looks down on you, laughing in a most wicked tone. He slowly walks over to the wall, and presses the emergency button, tons of armed guards rush in. You can see Tiffany hiding behind the vent, being afraid for you. The Dragon Lord offers you two pills. A blue one and a red one. Take the blue one and you become one of his men. Take the red one, full of venom and... well, you know...
Do you:

A) Take the blue pill.
Go to 65

B) Take the red pill.
Go to 66

As you navigate through the busy area, looking for a place where you can get some info on the latest whereabouts of Parker Peridot, the fat bald mustached man strikes you in the back of the head with a black jack. You see a huge, muscular man, wearing a metallic, phantom of the opera style mask, grab Tiffany. Everything fades to black. You wake up tied to a cross in an alley, and you hear the fat, mustached bastard, taunting you as he takes out a machete, he slices a cut diagonally across your torso. Silently uttering the Kujikiri, a ninja mantra under your breath, they are astonished that you didn't even flinch.
Do you:

A) Even though you can't move at all, try something, anything, got to escape now!
Go to 52

B) Wait patiently for the right time to get back at these jerk offs.
Go to 70

You stand face to face with the awesome, frightening, giant robot monster minotaur. You can just imagine the Dragon Lord looking down on you with his over confident wicked grin. He has no idea what your about to do, nor does he care, since he thinks he is invulnerable at this point. You hear from his built in speakers, "Behold, the awesome power of my giant robot, Muteki!" You switch your knife to on, and grasp it with the gauntlet and launch it to the left eye of the giant robot monster minotaur. It bounces off the eye and just as quickly as all of you hope is shattered, he picks you up with his massive hands and crushes you, and splats you down against the ground, a drop of 50 feet at 80 miles per hour.
The End, Death by Monster Minotaur Giant Robot!

You announce to them that you have come here to chew bubble gum and kick ass, and right now your all out of bubble gum. A big African cannibal catches your eye, you tell him that he looks like a bubble gum eater, and that he better have some extra bubble gum. The big African cannibal comes up before you. He begins to slap his belly and it seems like he is psyching himself up for battle. He slowly reaches for your face with a hand size that could palm a watermelon. You slice his arm with your knife and he wails like a crazy woman. You stab him in the belly and rip it open. Most people don't understand that a knife wound isn't a clean slice, the skin explodes open and the aftermath looks like a shark attack victim. Now, several gangs are pissed off at you. The Buffalo Humpers, the Neon Fools, the Vomit Heads, and the Hobo-bobos gang. You damage as many as you can, but you get surrounded and beat up.
Go to 70

The Vomit Heads are a strange gang, dressed in military fatigues. They have their own code of honor and ethics they follow. Most of them carry firearms not for shooting, but to be used as impact, and custom blade weapons.
One of them has an Ingram MAC-10 machine pistol with a jagged barrel end. You see another guy carrying a custom Uzi.
They begin to surround you, one of them hands you an AK-47 assault rifle with the triangle front sight modified into a blade. A tough looking blonde guy with a crew cut and a scar on his cheek, steps forward with an M16 assault rifle that also has a triangular sight blade. He charges at you with brute force, strong but he also has stamina, he gives you a good match, even though you outclass him in skill. Despite his aggressiveness, your able to neutralize his force by being soft, in the end you cut him deeply on the arm and he surrenders. You accept his defeat, to praise him as a warrior well fought, in front of his gang. They decide to let you pass. Tiffany leads the way deeper into the tunnel.
Go to 12

As you head for the Castle, you notice how there are less and less people the further you go. There is a sign that says, "Only a Ninja can defeat a Ninja". Then you meet a person that makes you nervous real bad, wearing a dark purple robe just like you, it is another Dark Combat Monk. Hood over his head, you see glimpses of a spooky face, it is the silver Hannya (female demon) mask that you know too well. This cursed ninja mask forged by Rokurokubi, grants the user super human powers, such as night vision, and slow motion vision. However, this legendary, demon mask is possessed, for it whispers negative thoughts, making anyone who wears it, into a blood thirsty psychotic killer. That's why for the last 200 years the Dark Combat Monks had it locked up for safe keeping. Looks like somebody didn't want your troop to get credit for this mission. You automatically know that it was some high-ranking member in your order.
The masked monk slowly pulls out a Kerambit style lightning knife... the curved blade looks like a giant claw, designed to maximize edge to cutting surface area, and the tip easily hooks and rends flesh.
Do you:

A) Use the hi-tech gauntlet to attack his crotch!
Go to 62

B) Accept the reality that you cannot win in a contest of strength against this guy.
Go to 5

C) Try to bribe this guy, after all your from the same order.
Go to 54

You charge all the energy, from the vampire head, to shoot concentrated, red lasers from the eyes, to sever an arm. Crimsonia mentions how now she regrets not installing the booby rockets on the dinosaur-bot. The minotaur uses a bolo saw to remove a leg from the Amazon's robot, then the minotaur launches a flying fist that luckily misses, the Amazons transform their robot back to dinosaur form. The headless dinosaur tackles the minotaur and immobilizes it. The Varney finally restores it's energy from the laser eyes and flies off to take Parker home.
Go to 57

You walk in with a sign that reads. "First one that touches me dies." You and Tiffany sit down at the bar, two guys approach you, one is a tall dirty Cro-magnon looking guy wearing a chained collar, the other is a big fat African who looks like a cannibal with stars and a moon painted on his body. A third fat guy with many scars on his forehead, appears out of nowhere, they call him the Butcher. The Butcher tells you that they are part of the gang known as the Buffalo Humpers, formerly known as the Barbarian Humpers. You ask them if they would be interested in your mission. They are the craziest most dangerous gang around. But even though totally crazy, they aren't suicidal. They recommend that you seek some other gangs.
Do you:

A) Visit the Cyber Sirens. Cyber Sirens are beautiful but deadly assassins. They are the courtesans of Skyless, politically very powerful.
Go to 50

B) Visit the Wasteland Amazons. Wasteland Amazons are like ghosts, rarely seen, extremely hostile and not much is known about them.
Go to 42

The two of you make way to the air ventilating system of the Castle. Tiffany leads you through the claustrophobia inducing, maze of vents. Once you reach the very top floor of the main tower, the penthouse, you see her through the vents, your mission objective, Parker. Parker is a nerdy but beautiful brunette girl who's been brought up like a princess. You see Parker face to face with the Dragon Lord. They seem to be having some kind of argument. Apparently she refuses to give him his daily enema, after he leaves in anger, you call Parker over to you. She stacks a chair on the table to climb into the vent. As she does, the Dragon Lord returns, outraged by what he sees, and snatches her back down with such brute force, that it rips her dress off, you also end up falling down into the chamber. He throws Parker into a wall, that encloses her in a glass prison and then disappears from your sight, as the entire wall pivots around. Tiffany's still in the vent, and the CEO's daughter is nowhere to be seen, your now face to face with the Dragon Lord.
Do you:

A) Challenge him with your knife, if you beat him, your one step closer to being the best knife fighter in the galaxy.
Go to 22

B) Put on your ninja mask and use your hi-tech gauntlet.
Go to 48

C) Challenge him to a shank fight! SHANK FIGHT! SHANK FIGHT!
Go to 19

D) Run! To the chopper! Wait, there is no chopper, so just run!
Go to 25

You quickly notice the Vomit Heads hiding nearby, they've been watching with their binoculars, and they don't like an outsider like you, that smells of trouble coming into Skyless. And they definitely don't care for Tiffany who sports a patch of the Cosmic Warriors on her leather vest. After all she is a lieutenant, one of the highest ranking, she's probably on their most wanted/hated list. As they try to ambush you two, you spit a poison red mist right in the eyes of one of them. It will blind temporarily, but cause a lot of pain and agony.
Do you:

A) Run through them, they will never catch you, cause your in way better shape than any of them!
Go to 58

B) Teach these punks a lesson. Ask them to make my day.
Go to 29

You find a boat, operated by a small piggy robot named Boo. You pay Boo to take you and Parker to the nearest entrance of Skyless. Boo is driving happy as can be, he likes getting customers and he likes his job. Soon after, a miniature but fully functional pirate ship is chasing you. Boo says it's the ruthless gang called the Nebula Pirates. They are lead by the infamous Captain Orion Hotoriguez. Captain Orion... you know this man, a space pirate, swindler and scum of the galaxy. Charismatic in all the wrong ways. You really don't care for this kind of guy at all!
Go to 63

She then leads you to a two way passage, the one in the left is clear, while the right one is nearly blocked off by many wooden planks. Entering the passage to the right, she explains that the other passage is booby trapped with multiple pitfalls. The two of you continue on, stepping over and ducking things, after you pull aside a hanging net, the passage way opens up to a wider area. Suddenly you notice, glowing neon colors moving about, you know that this is a fear tactic by some gang. She calls them out, four guys dressed like punky evil clowns show themselves, they are the Neon Fools, and they have no intention of letting anyone pass, without paying a substantial amount of dough. You see a nunchuck, jo staff, bokken, and escrima sticks, weapons you are all too familiar with.
Do you:

A) Time to get busy with the knife, and unleash the demon inside you.
Go to 13

B) Pretend to give them your public credit card and attack them.
Go to 3

You put on the cursed ninja mask, he can't touch you, because now you can see all of his moves in slow-motion. You blast the gauntlet to his middle head, and nail him in the abdomen with your switch blade shoe, slice and dice him with your lightning knife, you even impale the bastard with your skull cane sword, yet nothing seems to work. You jokingly wonder if garlic and crucifix would work better. Tiffany repeatedly ball kicks him, sticks the survival knife into his back, and repeatedly brass knuckle punches him to the crotch, the mighty Crimsonia stabs him countless times with her spear, but to no avail.
Do you:

A) This dude is more invulnerable than a werewolf! Forget trying to kill him, just look for a way to escape.
Go to 68

B) If it bleeds, we can kill it! He has to have a weakness somewhere, keep attacking him!
Go to 70

You take his sword cane and tell him to beat it. He tries to stab you with a butterfly knife, but you kick it out of his hand, he starts tapping the tip of his shoe, loading the hidden weight into the tip, you point to your shoe and make the switch blade pop out, he gives up cursing. You take his public credit card and a large shank, upon closer examination, this random piece of metal shaped into a knife, is actually well made, in a mission like this, you never know when it will come in handy. The graffiti on the wall says, Greed is for amateurs. Disorder, chaos, anarchy: now that's fun!
Go to 18

You start your speech, "I look around and all I see are dirty lazy stupid gross stinking useless gross perverts, I know I said gross twice and I meant it both times, anyone want to make their life useful for a change and go save a life?"
They tell you to get the hell out. Drinks are thrown at you, a hairy Cro-magnon looking guy tries to take Tiffany, she uppercuts him in the balls with her brass knuckles, and hammer fists him in the face, with the crown of her tactical flashlight. Raged, the Cro-magnon head butts a wooden table in two. You take out an empty public credit card, telling them it has 5000 credits, slowly backing out, you tell them, they can have it in exchange, for letting the two of you walk out in peace. You reach the double doors, and toss the card out to the middle, big desperate guys make a run for it. A brawl ensues. Safely outside with Tiffany, you take out the one pineapple grenade you have, and toss it in. Grenades are extremely expensive, and astonishingly rare, but oh well, you did society a favor. KABOOM!
Go to 30

They are trying to get close enough to board you, but Boo's boat the SUPER-8 has Blue Wolf turbine thrusters and easily out maneuvers the pirate ship the Mary Queen. Frustrated, Captain Orion changes tactics, using his megaphone, he threatens to make Tiffany walk the plank. You tell Boo to stop the boat. You really don't want to give up Parker, but you can't let Tiffany die. Parker wants to be with you, but not at the expense of Tiffany, she begs you to consider, and offers herself for the safety of Tiffany.
Do you:

A) Trade for now, with Tiffany on your side, you can go get Parker anytime.
Go to 4

B) Keep Parker, forget Tiffany.
Go to 8

As you both swim for the ledge, three beautiful women, magically appear swimming along side you. They assist you to safety in such a serene moment. As you all get out of the water and onto land, they swarm you with sensuous comfort, their soft silky hands run up and down your chiseled body, each one of them tries to lock eyes with you, charming you, they give you a change of clothes, and offer you some tasty dried fruit. They seem very affectionate and sweet but you notice they are hiding something, and they reek of malicious intention...

A bunch of masked wrestlers jump the Dragon Lord, they are the crew from the Underground Wrestlers Network. You see a guy wearing a white suit jacket, silver mask, and an elbow pad with a big spike protrusion, he jumps off of a gargoyle with a magnificent flying elbow strike, aimed directly for the neck of the Dragon Lord. As the masked man is flying down, his mask brilliantly flutters, changing rapidly from one mask design to the next, covering 20+ different mask designs, forming a shiny optical illusion, and a great distraction that has the Dragon Lord mesmerized. The elbow cracks the armor with one blow, and a three headed Dragon Lord appears from underneath, he was wearing an over body suit. The shiny masked man tries his flying elbow again but totally misses, falling a long way down, setting the record for the hardest suicidal belly flop you've ever seen. The Dragon Lord tosses a man wearing a tiger mask over the balcony, as the three of you run towards the action.

You dodge his rib cracking side kick to grab his head for some knees, but he military bench presses you up over his head with super human strength. He slams you down hard and barely misses your head and neck with a double foot stomp. You spring up and try to tie him up again, he launches you off your feet with an inch punch. You take out your lightning knife, he takes out his nunchaku but then he says, "You know this bout is a draw man, I leave you in peace my brother."
Finally, you return to the Wasteland Amazon base. Before you can rest, a giant robot beings to attack. The mechanical skyscraper looks like an evil minotaur with a glowing brain, and skeletal spiked ribs. The voice of the Dragon Lord thunders across the cavern base.

But being that this is a Cobra 200 Lightning Knife, the most powerful close range weapon in the galaxy, and would run a 200 volt electrical current directly into you for an instant heart attack, you've got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well do ya, punk?". The mustached bastard drops his spade.

A huge amount of commotion can be heard going on outside. There are screams and things being destroyed at great speed. Parker looks out the window and quickly comes back to you. She tells you that it's Project Lucifer, sent by her father to bring her back. She gives you a special item, a halo ring, she says its a weapon from her father's plant, which puzzles you, because Nathan Peridot is not suppose to be a weapons manufacturer.

The graffiti on the tunnel walls are beautiful. Then you notice a Spanish style galleon with a jolly roger approaches you.

As a kid I grew up reading Gamebooks, I thought they were the greatest thing in the world. I wanted to do a tribute to that, but for adults. I never did a project like this before so it was very challenging. It took me about 8 weeks to complete. I really didn't know what kind of theme to do at first. I thought, Dungeons and Dragons type fantasy would be great, I also wanted it to be post apocalyptic future, I was also thinking about a gothic Transylvania type setting, but space sci-fi kept calling me back. And it was the choice I went with because I realized that I could do any of the other stuff in this one. Instead of mythical monsters I could have robotic monsters. I could replace magic with advanced technology. I knew I didn't want any aliens, cyborgs or mutants, no plagues or diseases, because I didn't want anything really gross in it. And I knew I wanted lots of martial arts, based off of real stuff, tons of weapons, tons of knife fights. I wanted to make it campy because ultimately it had to be entertaining. Some movies are very well made but not necessarily entertaining. Perhaps they make a statement that bothers you, makes you think. That's not what I wanted to do here. I was shooting for a low budget martial arts action flick type of story. Cheesy comedy, with interesting characters, essentially exploring an underground world.
I wanted it to be a choose your own adventure book, where you go from paragraph to paragraph rather than from page to page. Simply because I thought that would be easier for me to write. And each paragraph I tried to put in at least one of three things, comedy, an homage, or factual information. As much as I could, I tried to make each character even the side ones something special as opposed to bland-generic. In many of these choose your adventure books, the main character is bland, a generic character because its you, but I didn't want to do that here, the main character in essence is a ninja + vampire, and that resulted in this dark combat monk idea. There is a total of 3 women that he meets that will help, Tiffany, Crimsonia, Isabella, and they reflect the 3 brides of Dracula. Parker is your princess in distress and the equivalent of Mina to Dracula. Captain Orion is your nemesis, and I imagined Captain Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Caribbean. A good villain is super important, the Dragon Lord walks around in his armor like Darth Vader, and that already works. His real name is Ardred which I made from combining two major villains from classical literature, Prof. Moriarty from the Sherlock Holmes novels and Mordred from King Arthur. But in addition to that, I thought, why not have one that morphs. Morphing will make him extra unique and memorable. The morphing comes from the Japanese Godzilla films. At first he's just normal Dragon Lord, then he is Mecha Dragon Lord like, Mecha Gojira. And then a 3 headed version like King Gidorah and of course the centaur version comes from Godzilla Final Wars, Kaizer Gidorah which was Monster X morphed. After having the main character and main villain set, location was really important to me. I loved the underground network of tunnels idea in Ring of Fire 2. So I took that and made it a 100x bigger place. I wanted a castle in the story for sure. Then a haunted fun house came to mind. The whole water stuff didn't come until almost half the book was completed, but I love the water, ocean, marine biology, so it was nice for me to include that. You start the book by entering Skyless, and then after traveling in a maze like tunnel, the middle was the food court or getting to the castle, now the ending of the book to me was also important, I imagined a climactic battle with swords on a cathedral but that just didn't go well with the story, plus there were already so many weapon fights throughout the story that one more wasn't all that special. In many of the kids TV shows in Japan, I remember in the end, they always fought in giant robots. I thought, what a great ending that would be. So thats why I did that.

Thanks for your interest and support!
