Productions, I just wrote this a while ago and thought I would publish it on my
site. At this in INCOMPLETE and probably never to be completed (come on its terrible and written around 1998!)

at a scene of a mystical castle surrounded by dark gloomy clouds. Zoom in to see
a vague face light lighting upon her face.
VOICE: A thousand years ago Rayden and his mortals beat the evil Shao Kahn, when
Shao Kahn attempted to take over earth against the Elder Gods rules. After this
vicious attempt, warrior monk, Liu Kang in Mortal Kombat, destroyed Shao Kahn
and then the earth rested, restored to its full glory along with the other
realms Shao Kahn had destroyed. Outworld was left in all its horror, with slaves
tortured, unknowing of the growing evil underneath its shores.

protector of earth, his normal outfit and hat.

See ya tomorrow mum (over shoulder)

walks down the steps and on to the path when Rayden steps in her way.
I've been waiting for you, your realm is in danger
Agh! I have no money for you, get away from me (paths him
RAYDEN: Enough! (Lightning from finger) Thereís no time
Whoa! Who are you?
I am Rayden Elder God of wind. We must go now, you realm is in grave danger.
Evil lurks in Outworld, an invasion is eminent.
Realm? Outworld? Invasion? What are you on about?
Thousands of years ago an order of the wisest men from the Far
east received visions of a dark realm known as the Outworld. It was a world
ruled by chaos and a vicious emperor known as Shao Kahn. They learned that ravel
between earth and the newfound realm would someday be possible. If the
conditions were right, the conditions being the unbalancing of the furies
-negative and positive forces which keep our unstable universe from collapsing
in on its self. Knowing that an Outworld invasion was eminent, the wise men
appealed to the elder gods. This was the reason that the elder gods created a
tournament known as Mortal Kombat. For nine generations Mortal Kombat was ruled
by Outworldís finest prince - Goro. The earth was on the brink of destruction
when a new generation were victorious in defending their realm. The warrior monk
Liu Kang, would become the new champion but his victory was short lived as he
and his comrades find themselves lured into the Outworld to compete in a second
tournament. Little did they know the tournament was just a diversion. A
scheme devised by the dark emperor to break the sacred rules set forth by the
elder gods and witness the reincarnation of his former Queen - Sindel on the
earth realm its self. This unholy act gives Shao Kahn the power to step through
the dimensional gates and reclaim his Queen, thus enabling him to finally seize
the earth. These are the trilogy of events comprised of Shao Kahnís final
attempt at seizing the earth.
What does all that have to do with me?
You Kunra, are the chosen one, you must be trained and become the protector of
the earth realm.
Okay, whatever, Iíll rephrase the question, (slowly) what can I do?
at first, Kunra follows Rayden into the darkness.
to a scene where a 20 year old man is waiting on a street at dusk for a late
Damn buses, always so late, I canít believe I actually have to catch them, if
only I didnít get caught speeding so much.
comes a black convertible with another 20-year-old man inside.
JOSEPH: Hey Sniper, like waiting for buses do ya?
SNIPER: Piss off Joseph itís your fault Iím here.
JOSEPH: My fault? You were the one who was caught, not me.
Get in Iíll give you a lift because you make me feel guilty.
SNIPER: (getting in the door) Your not feeling guilty just cautious that I might tell
them about your secret stash.
along a blue and green cloud is seen past the reflection of Sniperís head in
the revision mirror.
JOSEPH: Looks like a little stormy weather ahead (sticking
his head out of the window)
SNIPER: Keep your eyes on the road
JOSEPH: Sheesh bro, what have they done to you?
clouds surround the car and Joseph pulls over and tries to wipe the fog from the
JOSEPH: What theÖ (pauses because a figure forms from the cloud. The Figure is a beast of
some kind with four arms. It growls menacingly.) Sniper,
lets get out of here (looks
towards Sniper who isnít there, so he looks out the window again to see that
the clouds have gone, he speeds off with a wheel spin.)
is now seen waking up in a cell, in a dungeon of some kind. A person in a
monkís robe appears holding a plate of food, we notice it is Raydenís hair.
SNIPER: Where am I?
RAYDEN: (put the plate down) You are in the eternal palacesí pit.
SNIPER: Why? What did I do wrong?
RAYDEN: You have done nothing wrong, she sees you as a threat
SNIPIER: A threat to what?
RAYDEN: The occupation of earth
SNIPER: The what? Occupation of earth? Yeah right I believe
you (turns away and
pulls a funny face)
RAYDEN: You must believe me if you want to escape
SNIPER: Okay, whatever. What do you want me to do?
RAYDEN: Concentrate on turning the bars into nothing, then
walk through them.
SNIPER: Do what? Walk through the bars?
RAYDEN: You can do it you just need to believe in yourself.
SNIPER: (puts on a doubtful face the takes a deep breath and walks into the bars
and hits his head very hard, rubbing the forming red mark) Ow!
RAYDEN: You can do it, try again.
SNPIER: Do that again? I donít think so (still
rubbing is forehead)
RAYDEN: Do I have to do everything? (walks
through the bars and takes Sniper away)
a chamber in a castle full of monks walking everywhere. Two females approach,
Sniper looks at them appraisingly, still in shock from what happened.
1ST FEMALE: Who do we have here Rayden?
RAYDEN: His name is Sniper, take him to Kunra
SNIPER: Hey I didnít tell you my name, take me home
2ND FEMALE: Why take him to Kunra, we will look
after him (runs her
fingers up Sniperís chest, who flushes at her)
brushes the two aside.
RAYDEN: Why must I do everything? (Starts
walking down the corridor motioning for Sniper to follow, Sniper compiles and
the 1st female blows him a kiss)
SNIPER: You taking me home now?
RAYDEN: No, we need your help
SNIPER: Okay then, who were they and where are we?
RAYDEN: They were servants of Tracia, the evil sorceress who
was trying to put you out of the picture. He
stops at a large stone door
Kunra, I have to speak to you
KUNRA (from within): Wait a sec. (Moments
later the door opens and Kunra looks at Rayden.) What can I do for you Rayden?
RAYDEN: I have someone for you, meet Sniper (pushes
Sniper into the room) Sniper
is one of the warriors who will help you in defeating Tracia.
KUNRA: RaydenÖ(Rayden disappears in a puff of wind)I
hate it when he does that (sits
on the bed) I
suppose you are wondering why you are here?
SNPIER: Yeah, first Iím with Joseph and some weird beast
with 4 arms, then a lonely in a monks robes says I can walk through bars then he
zaps me here
KUNRA: He actually told you that? Wow, I didnít things were
that bad, you are the one who can go through the un-openable basically, you also
have great strength.
SNIPER: I thought youíd be okay but youíre just as loony
as him (gets up to
leave but crashes into an invisible wall, he turns and notices Kunraís hand
KUNRA: See what I have leant already, and Iíve only been
here a week.
SNIPER: You did that? So I CAN walk through bars, wow! When
will I learn?
KUNRA: Soon, time is running short, Tracia is preparing an
invasion as we speak, get some rest, Iíll see you in the morning.
walks away in shock and turns suddenly Can
you tell me now?
KUNRA: No, sleep in there (a
door opens to reveal two more beds and Sniper walks in and the door is shut
behind him, taking a deep breath he goes to walk through the wall only to find
an invisible shield in front of it) Go
to sleep Sniper, youíll need rest for what we have in store for tomorrow.
SNIPER (grumbling): I wish I never got into that car.
Morning sun shines through a room filled with ancient weapons. Kunra walks in
(sun shining on her face) and picks up a large sword, she then leaves the room:
has a blank expression on her face. The camera follows Kunra from behind (about
2 metres) down the deserted corridor and into Kunraís room. She then turns
around (looking directly into the camera) and wheels the sword and starts
attacking an invisible person (camera retreats to doorway but still on Kunra)
and starts yelling, ďDie will you, just die!Ē Sniper who has awoken from the
commotion opens his door looking tired and when he sees Kunra, looks surprised.
SNIPER: (from the door yells) Hey Kunra! What are you doing? (No
reply she still keeps on fighting) KUNRA!
wakes up and drops the sword and has a confused look upon her face.
KUNRA: What is going on? (Asks
emerges from the door and puts his hand on her shoulder. She jumps and quickly
looks around, when she realises it is Sniper she sighs in relief.
KUNRA: You scared me, every morning I wake up and find a
weapon in my hands and feel very energetic and I donít know why.
SNIPER: Sleepwalking maybe? But you woke me up with all your
screaming you know, so it would be good if you didnít do that again. I thought
someone was killing you or something. At lot of help I would be in my PJs.
KUNRA: I donít know why I do it. I canít remember
anything at all. IÖ

RAYDEN: Why do I always come in here and see a weapon at your
KUNRA: Iíve been asking myself the same question, maybe I
keep on sleepwalking but I have never sleepwalked before.
face crinkles into a concerned frown and turns to leave
SNIPER: Hey you going to tell my why I am here?
RAYDEN: Kunra will have to do that (disappears
KUNRA: There is something about that man that scares the hell
out of me but another part that wants to embrace him like a leader, I just
donít know which feeling to trust.
SNIPER: He does seem a little freaky with the whole lighting
and disappearing thing. Now without seeming too self centred, why am I (emphasising
the I) here?
KUNRA: You have been chosen like me to (Making
66 and 99 marks) ďsave
SNIPER: To save the world, you are as loony as lightning man.
KUNRA: You saw what I could do and look out the window, we
are floating in clouds somewhere, I donít even recognise the world underneath,
itís not earth Iíll tell you that.
goes to the window and looks out and jumps back in shock Whoa!
Youíre right, where exactly are we?
KUNRA: Rayden didnít tell me that either.
SNIPER: Heíd better tell me then (storms
out of the room in a hurry)
KUNRA: No he wonít (opens a small book and starts writing in it)
is walking down a small narrow street that is very dirty and condemned - like
ďwrong side of the tracks.Ē He moves to a gate, which is hanging off of its
hinges, and starts walking up the worn dirt track to a small tin roofed house
with one of its windows boarded up and the screen door hanging only on one
SIMON! I thought I told you to tidy your rooms
did mum but Simon didnít
Clean your room
mum, just after I put this engine together
looks to his left and sees the swinging chair lying on its side on the ground
overgrown with vines. He knocks on the door and a girl about 18 comes her hair
in braids with dirty overalls on.
RACQUEL: Yes, may I help you?
RAYDEN: I must speak with you and your brother immediately
RACQUEL: Simon! Come here, someone is at the door for you.
SIMON: (outback) Okay, Iíll just wash my hands
RACQUEL: I would offer you to come in but we donít have any
chairs anymore, not since the Ö (looks misty eyed) well you know. So weíll have to sit on the step (motions
towards the step in which they both sit about Ĺ metre apart.) So, whatís your name? Iím Racquel, my brother is
RAYDEN: I know, Iím Rayden and it is most important that I
speak with you two.
SIMON: So who is this most important guest?
RACQUEL: His name is Rayden and it looks like he has
something important to say. Sit down (pats the spot next to her, which her twin brother takes) So
RAYDEN: You have been chosen to do a very important job, but
you must come now and Iíll tell you when we get there.
SIMON: And leave my engine, sorry buddy, no important mission
RACQUEL: Simon, look at his clothes and his face, he must
have come a long way to see us, who would do that if it wasnít important? The
engine can wait, it should hopefully be here when we come back.
SIMON: Okay, you tell mum, Iíll tidy up out the back. (He
gets up and leaves and so does Racquel, Rayden stands and waits for them. A
little while later Simon comes back with the engine strapped to his shoulder and
with Racquel following behind)
SIMON: Iíll take it with me then
sighs and looks to Rayden.
RAYDEN: Okay, close your eyes first itíll make this easier (they
do so and he opens a portal and they all step through, the engine is left
to Kunraís room Ė nobody is in there, but lying on the bed is an open book.
Rayden walks up to it and sees the words ďIím lucky to be the chosen one,
but I feel so alone, different and separated from the rest.Ē He shuts the book
to see the words ďKunraís journalĒ on the front. He veers around to see
Kunra rush in and snatch the book away.
KUNRA: (angrily) Canít I even have some privacy?
RAYDEN: I apologise, it was just lying there open on the bed
KUNRA: How can it be I left it locked in the draw, who
couldíve found it and opened it. The only person I can think of is Sniper (she
goes to confront the man)
RAYDEN: No, he has been in the gym all morning, it couldnít
have been him. Weíll figure this out later, I have people I need you to meet.
KUNRA: (mumbles) Who couldíve read my journal then?
two females from before emerge out of the wall (they are Reptiles) and look at
one another in delight.
1st FEMALE: Tracia will be very pleased with us in
getting this information
2nd FEMALE: Yes, she will surely promote us, as
poor lonely Kunra will perish quickly (she grins then leave the room, the other female follows her)
the gym where Sniper is busy doing weights in the circuit area.
RAYDEN: Sniper, come (motions
we have people to see
SNIPER: Hey, Kunra (yelling across the room at the girl)
this gym equipment is really great, just look at the death machine over there (motioning
KUNRA: Yeah I know, but I donít know how to use it, could
you show me later?
RAYDEN: Later, yes, I have someone for you to meet (starts
walking towards the door on the other side of the room which the pair follow
room is large with a wooden table in the middle and a wall full of books. In the
distance at the end of the room Racquel and Simon are sitting reading some
SIMON: Yo, Rayden these books are neat, where'd you get Ďim
RAYDEN: Iíd like you to meet Kunra and Sniper (motioning
towards the pair)
And Iíd like you two to meet Racquel and Simon (they all look at each other)
RAYDEN: Iíll leave you to get to know one another better (leave
the room and the four walk towards one another)
RACQUEL: Do you know why we are here, my brother desperately
wants to get back to his engine before it disappears
SNIPER: You from that part of town? Wow, Rayden must be
SIMON: Hey, just because we happen to live there doesnít
mean that we are less than anyone else
KUNRA: Okay, now itís a little more complicated then a
simple answer but Iíll try my best. Iíve been reading up on things whilst I
have been here. Sit down, Iíll explain some more.
motions towards the chairs, which Racquel sits on and leans forward, Simon turns
his backwards and sits and Sniper fills the remaining seat, with Kunra at the
head of the semi-circle.
KUNRA: We have been chosen to save the world to keep it the briefest,
but it is a little more complicated than that, Iím beginning to understand my
part in all of this, it is kinda freaky but you get used to it
SIMON: I left my engine to talk to some loonies, great.
RACQUEL: No she is right, I donít know how I know but I
feel it is right, sit down Simon, listen, itís important.
SIMON: Okay, your hunches are usually correct (smiles
wirily at her) Sorry,
KUNRA: Iím glad you feel that way Racquel, itís a start (a
loud crash open the door in the room and someone launches into the room and in
surprise Racquel rushes with extreme speed to stop them from falling over, then
drops the person in shock at her speed and walks back to her seat after the
person at her feet disappears.
RACQUEL: What just happened?
KUNRA: I needed to test your reflexes. Your power is speed, I
read all about you three in that book (pointing
at the book on Racquelís lap)
but it only has a picture of me though. It says that we are the four chosen ones
to stop Traciaís invasion of earth realm.
SNIPER: Iíll say, you shouldíve seen what Kunra did to me
when I didnít believe her, lets say I had a little bang around the head.
RACQUEL (opens the book): So we are them(points at the four figures in the picture)
KUNRA: Yes, Racquel you are the girl on the left who moves
with great speed, the one with the whip, Simon you are the male beside her with
the tiger striped pants, you can turn into animals and you Sniper are the other
male with the spear, and you know that you can walk through the unopenable.
RACQUEL: What about you Kunra, what powers do you have?
KUNRA: Well my picture doesnít say anything, I have many
powers most of which I donít know yet, at the moment
Ouch how horrible! Oh well - it was a bit of a laugh right?
