"Our guests must be weary from the journey.
See to thier rest and refreshment first."
"I shall make preparations at once."

With that crisp reply, Proto takes his leave.

You exchange uneasy glances with your
companions, doubt and disquiet apparent
in everyone's eyes. Finally someone musters
the courage to ask the question aloud:

"You're prepared to welcome us as friends?"
"Why wouldn't we, after searching for so long?
While we kept faith, we never allowed ourselves
to hope too much. We never imagined we would
really find survivors."
"Survivors?"

Instead of replying, the king divulges
his people's objective.

--

"Animata has driven our world to the
brink of unprecedented catastrophe.
Won't you join our fight to stop it?"

--

"You are kindred, fellow citizen of this world.
To us, you are beacon of hope."

Concluding thus, the Oxsecian king
welcomes you with open arms.

Not long ago the Oxsecians were bitter enemies.
Now they surround you--but they're disarmingly
friendly. Eerily so.

Still, here you can finally settle down and rest.

Unable to resist that temptation,
you decide to stay a while.

--

"Maybe we've gone back to the past..."
"Time travel? Don't be absurd."
"Supposing an explosion accompanied by
a tremendous shift in mass somehow triggered
a distortion of--"
"I am sorry to interrupt. I have a request."

It's Proto. He's been entrusted with a
certain assignement.

--

"A supply run to the bridgehead..."

According to Proto, the troops stationed
there are setting up a critical operation as
a foothold in the campaign against Animata.

"Well, no point in just sitting around here,
after all. Let's lend a hand."

And so you join the Oxsecian ranks."

The scars of battle are everywhere.

"Barely outside the castle and
this much fighting already?"
"A vanguard should be awaiting us.
Let's make haste."

As the sun sinks toward the horizon,
the alien beasts' madness only grows with
the darkness. A rank odor arises as well.

Proto keeps a sharp lookout.
An unsettling presence looms.

"It feels like we're being cornered..."

Taking the lead, Proto forges ahead in
an attempt to dispel the air of unease.
The rest of you trail behind like magnets.

But you're already surrounded.

No matter how many you sweep away,
they keep coming like endlessly propagating dust.
No matter how many fall, more rise to take
their place.

There's no avoiding them, either.
the alien beasts prowl even the most
roundabout paths, patiently waiting.

"A village...?"

You've come across a cluster of crumbling,
dilapidated old houses--a perfect hiding place.
The party dashes into a creaky building with
a roof just barely hanging on.

"You do know the way, right?"

You've veered wide of your intended route
while trying to escape your predators.

"I will calculate it now. One moment, please."

Proto makes contact with a satellite
and maps out an optimized route.
Then a cry of surprise escapes him.

The rickety roof has been blasted away.

Your predators have found you. And they're hungry.

The party makes camp as night falls.
Proto shares a bit of gossip in hopes of
lightening the mood. Everyone snaps it up
at once.

"What? The king is expecting a child?"
"It is due any day now--all the more
reason I hope to report this mission
a rousing success to His Majesty."

You hardly hear Proto's commendable words.
Everyone is distracted by the same thought:

"Say... How do Oxsecians give birth, anyway?"

The Oxsecian castle...

"This mission has no more hope of success
than the others, I fear. Which brings us to
the matter of Operation Neogenesis--"
"Not yet."

The king's reply is swift and sure,
unfazed by his advisor's gloomy projections.

"We don't know yet that the mission has failed."
"Still, we must make a decision sooner
or later, sire."
"If it comes to that, it is our last resort."

The king stands lost in thought, eyes closed.
Opening them slowly, he murmurs:

"If we must leave this world behind...
Neogenesis is a fitting name indeed."

He awaits word from Proto and his team.

--

Meanwhile, Proto and his team stand
heartsick at the sight before them.

You've arrived too late.

The Oxsecian field of operations is
utterly decimated. Nothing remains
but smoking piles of rubble and death.
There's nothing to be done.

"Annihilated... All of them."

Proto utters a sound of inexpressible grief.

"What now, Proto?"
"I must convey the news to His Majesty.
It will be painful, but it is my duty."

The party decides to set up camp
for the night a short distance away.
You'll set out for the castle in the morning.

--

The earth rumbles.

"The sky's changing color..."

The horizon blazes red, bleeding crimson
into the atmosphere.

And savage alien creatures appear once more.

Waves of red light gush from fissures in the
earth and then vanish, writhing skyward like
enormous scarlet serpents.

"Was Animata's light always this...creepy?"

The light oozes into the atmosphere,
permeating it and gradually engulfing the planet.

You glance up at the sky, now painted
a striking gradation of deepening blues.
Then that lovely gradient fractures,
splitting straight down the middle!

The Oxsecian ship, 10 seconds before destruction...

"We surrounded ourselves with systems and
machines back then, too..."

The faintest of memories flickers.
But her voice is the only part that lingers.

Like ice thawing and cracking after a long winter,
the king's stern features soften into a smile.

--

Your companions are all back and accounted for.
The bizarre phenomenon you encountered is
new even to Proto. He relates all that has
happened to the king.

The king listens with a look of agony.
It seems there's no longer any way to stop
Animata's rampage.

There are few options left.
The Oxsecian king must make a choice.

--

"Gather the people."
"You've decided to proceed, then, sire?"

The royal advisor's voice is a mixture of
chagrin and resignation.

"Aye. This world has no place for us anymore.
We've lost."

The Oxsecian king grits his teeth,
steeling himself. Then...

--

Operation Neogenesis is hereby authorized.

--

It was the very day the king issued his decree.
A piercing, innocent wail split the air.

A flurry of activity broke out at once,
a whirlwind of hurried footsteps and
breathless commotion spreading
throughout the castle.

Then someone raised a cry in a ringing voice:

"Her Royal Highness Princess 36AIS is born!"
