Jawson Bog (Kid’s Hallucination)

Prosper Bluff

Don’t know where he’s gone.  Might be gone for good for all I know.  Wherever he is…It’s somewhere I’ve never been.  Somewhere I never want to go.

Hanging Gardens

The dead welcome him with open arms.  Kid pops them good.  That a Survivor?  No ma’am.  It’s a lonesome ghost of a Gasfella.  What do you say to a Kid who’s seen too much?  I’m Zulf of the Ura.  Pleased to make your acquaintance.

The Bastion

Now the Kid sees something stranger still.  Did anybody else survive?  Sure enough, he finds…Peckers.  Lunkheads.  Wallflowers.  Pincushions.  Vineapples.  Swampweeds.  Anklegators.  Now the Bastion can send him even farther.  Into the Wild Unknown.

The Sole Regret

Kid sets foot inside one of Caelondia’s famous watering holes.  He has the nerve to flash the Shield he stole.  He’s a petty thief.  The Security’s just going to have to straighten him out.  Kid succeeds where the Calamity failed.  Would you look at what he did to poor old Rondy the Bartender?

The Rippling Walls

Proper story’s supposed to start at the beginning.  It’s so simple with this one.  Now here’s a Kid whose whole world’s all right, snoozing there on a rock in the sky.  He wakes up…I’m just fooling.  He sees what’s left of the Rippling Walls.  Years of work, undone in an instant.  He sees what’s left of Pyth the Bull.  The Gods, they’re all undone.  He sees what’s left of his lifelong friend.  His friend, he’s come undone too.  He sees…what’s left…undone.
