The Sword of Osiris



Valley of the Scorpion

CASSANDRA
I sense great evil in this place, why would he insist on coming here? Mathayus! Mathayus, are you in here?

MATHAYUS
Cassandra! Please, help me!

CASSANDRA
He's in trouble! Stay where you are! I'm coming! Who are you? What have you done with my husband?
MENTHU
Ha! Ha! Ha! Your husband is fine. I'm afraid it is you who is in danger! Will you come along quietly?

CASSANDRA
I'm not going anywhere until you show me Mathayus!

MENTHU
HA! Resist if you like! You'll only bring me greater pleasure! Ha Ha Ha! I've worked up a healthy lather!

ISIS
Menthu! Stop toying with this girl and let's be gone! The Arcadian is approaching!

MENTHU
Do not concern yourself with him, Isis. This girl however is much more important. She alone can interpret your markings, and reveal the opening to the Dunes of Natash!

ISIS
Is this true girl? Do you have the gift?

CASSANDRA
I don't know what you're talking about.

ISIS
Enough!

CASSANDRA
Gasp! Those marks! What are you!?

ISIS
My body is a living riddle. Tangled within these markings is a map to the Scorpion Stone! Together we will collect it for my master, and he will rule with unequalled power!

CASSANDRA
Never!

MENTHU
I'm afraid she's telling you the truth my dear. I will soon rule supreme over this world! Come Isis! She will be broken along the way!

CASSANDRA
No! Mathayus!!! Mathayus!!!

MATHAYUS
Cassandra? What in the world is happening? I've got to get to her quickly!
Looks like I'm too late.

CASSANDRA
Mathayus!

MATHAYUS
Cassandra! Is that you? I can hear your voice but it's so faint.

CASSANDRA
I am now only a voice inside your mind. You must listen carefully to my words. An evil man named Menthu is using me to locate the Scorpion Stone. I fear that he will find it, and when he does he will unleash a terrible power.

MATHAYUS
Then I will hunt him down and defeat him!

CASSANDRA
Your physical strength will not be sufficient. Only the legendary Sword of Osiris can defeat Menthu. It is crucial that you find it!

MATHAYUS
And what of this Scorpion Stone? If it poses a threat, shouldn't it be destroyed as well?

CASSANDRA
I believe you will find an object buried just below your feet that the enemy fears. It is called the Hero's Gauntlet.

MATHAYUS
Yes, there's a metal glove here. It seems to be missing six emblems on the wrist.

CASSANDRA
Those missing emblems are the RUNES of OSIRIS. You must find all six of them, and fuse them with the Hero's Gauntlet if you wish to destroy the Scorpion Stone's magic.

MATHAYUS
By my oath I will find the legendary sword and defeat Menthu. Perhaps if fate smiles upon me I will find the six Runes and destroy the Scorpion Stone as well!

CASSANDRA
Please hurry. My future and the fate of the world lies with you!

MENTHU
Isis, bring forward our friend.

CASSANDRA
Release me! You must know I will never help you!

MENTHU
That may not be the case my dear. You are aware of the present I left for your husband at our first meeting? A Hero's Gauntlet I believe.

CASSANDRA
How did you know?

MENTHU
You told him that I fear the Gauntlet? It is a trifle. A lesser magic when compared to the might of the Scorpion Stone. However, it is very useful in persuading you to join my cause.

CASSANDRA
Explain yourself now!

ISIS
What he means is that the Gauntlet is killing your Mathayus. Only the power of the Scorpion Stone can reverse its effects now.

CASSANDRA
You're lying!

MENTHU
Then why not contact him again? Tell him the truth! Either way you must help us gain possession of the Stone! The choice is yours.

CASSANDRA
I...

MENTHU
Ha ha ha!

CASSANDRA
I will help you. But you must promise to spare him.

MENTHU
It will be as you say. Isis!

ISIS
Yes.

MENTHU
You know what must be done!

ISIS
Yes master.

MENTHU
That is it! The Scorpion Stone! Its power belongs to me now!

MATHAYUS
Hold it you fiend! Release Cassandra!

MENTHU
I'm afraid your life has reached it's end Arcadian! Ultimate power is now mine!

MENTHU
I was so close to victory.

MENTHU
What is this? That glove has managed to reveal the fullpower of Osiris' Sword! No matter! I will rule the world with the Scorpion Stone in one hand and the Sword of Osiris in the other! I have underestimated you Arcadian. You have put an end to my mortal body, but my plan will not fail! Isis! Use the Scorpion Stone to regenerate my flesh!

ISIS
Fool! The power of the stone was meant for me, not you! I was born with the markings! It is my birthright!

MENTHU
What! NO, you must not!!!

ISIS
Behold the true power of the Scorpion Stone! What is happening!?

ISIS
The stone! It's burning! Consuming my flesh! AIEEEEEE!

MATHAYUS
Cassandra! Are you all right?

CASSANDRA
Fine. Are you?

MATHAYUS
Yes. Menthu was a master of deception, but in the end it got the better of him.

CASSANDRA
It appears that both he and Isis were destroyed by their own lies.

MATHAYUS
The battle may never truly end, but I will fight well knowing that another evil has been laid to rest.

CASSANDRA
I will never allow the enemy to separate us again. From now on I will battle by your side!

MATHAYUS
Let us bid farewell to this shattered land, and begin the long journey home.
