    I. About This FAQ
    ========================================================================================
    
    I wrote this FAQ because many non-Playstation owners on Mortal Kombat message boards 
    wanted to know about the story in Mortal Kombat: Special Forces. This FAQ tells the Story
    details given in the manual, a description of each FMV sequence, The complete script of
    all the transmissions that occur in the game, and a short description of each level.

    II. Story From the Manual
    ========================================================================================
    
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    A. Manual Introduction
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    One of the earliest stories that established the Mortal Kombat universe was the
    relationship between Jax and Kano. Jax, a Special Forces agent, was hot on the trail of
    career criminal Kano, when he was led into the Mortal Kombat tournament.
    
    Kano represented the criminal underworld and Mortal Kombat was a supernatural event that
    caused all of these things to collide. But, we've only hinted at their shaded past.
    
    What events caused Kax to despise Kano so much? How did Kano himself come to be involved
    with Shang Tsung? Why is Jax so bent on stopping Kano's gang. Is it the Black Dragon?
    
    There's a story to be told here and one that will allow new elements of gameplay, while
    remaining true to the myths that make up the Mortal Kombat universe.
    
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    B. Jax's Bio
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Jax has a new mission. It's a mission He's always wanted to undertake, and the disdain
    for his nemesis Kano is much too great to ignore any longer. 
    
    Kano represents the criminal underworld and Mortal Kombat was a supernatural event that
    caused the chasm between these two powerful rivals.
    
    Jax will be forced into hand to hand combat, as well as vicious gun battles as he hunts
    down Kano. Join Jax in his search for Kano, destroying his henchmen along the way. Get
    ready, another battle has just begun.
    
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    C. No Face's Bio
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Due to his vast knowlege of explosives and incendiary devices, be prepared for an
    explosive battle.
    
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    D. Tasia's Bio
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Beware of this Ninja Master. She's as deadly as she is beautiful.
    
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    E. Jarek's Bio
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    One of Kano's most trusted allies, Jarek is quick, mean and full of surprises.
    
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    F. Tremor's Bio
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    He's the guardian of the Gateway. His powerful style, coupled with his blind loyalty to
    Kano makes him a deadly adversary.
    
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    G. Kano's Bio
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Yes, Jax's longtime nemesis is a ready and capable opponent. Kano will use any means

    III. Transmissions, FMVs, and Other Story Details
    ========================================================================================
    
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    A. FMV Intro and Transmission
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    The camera zoomed to a wanted poster with Kano's face on it. The camera showed a wall of 
    the Special Forces prison light up then explode. Kano and his Black dragon members walked
    out. It then showed the Special Forces running to their truck to chase after them. Next 
    it cuts to a scene with Jax driving in his purple car. He soon receives a transmission 
    from a woman named Gemini.
    
    Transmission 1
    
    Gemini - Jax, we have an urgent situation that demands your attention. 
    
    Jax - What's the problem Gemini?
    
    Gemini - We have a breakout at the Special Forces maximum security facility. A group of 
    highly dangerous superhuman criminals have escaped the compound and are at large. The 
    list of escaped prisoners is as follows: no face, tasia, jarek, and tremor. They are 
    apparently hiding out in an abandoned warehouse on the south side of town. There is 
    something else you should know - the prisoners received help from an outside source. 
    
    Jax - It has to be Kano.
    
    Gemini -  You guessed it.
    
    Jax - Gemini, tell operations eta sixty seconds to the warehouse. Inform Lt. Sanchez not 
    to infiltrate the warehouse until my arrival.
    
    Gemini- Affirmitive. Oh wait, hold on Jax- I have a transmission from Lt. Sanchez... I'll 
    patch it through.
    
    Lt. Sanchez - Jax, we have just arrived at the location and we are awaiting your orders.
    Wait a minute... what the?!(Gunshots and screams can be heard) It's a trap!! Let's get 
    the hell outta -transmission interrupted-
    
    Jax arrived at the warehouse and saw that a bunch of cars are blown up and his friends 
    were dead. He threw his arms up and said, "Kano, you're going to pay for this."
    
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    B. Level 1: Warehouse
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Jax arrived at the warehouse and saw that a bunch of cars are blown up and his friends 
    were dead. He threw his arms up and said, "Kano, you're going to pay for this." He then 
    went into the warehouse and fought members of Kano's gang and solved puzzles. He 
    eventually came across one of the escapees named No Face. He used bombs and a blow torch
    to try to defeat Jax. Jax was to strong though, and eventually defeated No Face. He then
    contacted Gemini again.
    
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    C. Transmission 2
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Gemini - Jax, I was trying to get through to you... are you all right?
    
    Jax - Yeah, I'm OK. I just had a little fire to snuff out.(A picture of No Face appears 
    with an X over it and says No Face status: TERMINATED.) What's the situation back at HQ?
    
    Gemini - (While the following is being said a Black Dragon logo comes up and beside it
    says: The Black Dragon: wanted for: terrorism, smuggling, extortion, murder.) Well Jax,
    the deal is these bad boys have more in common than we though. Turns out that they were
    all card-carrying members of Kano's little club, the Black Dragon. Isn't that the gang 
    that gave you so much trouble some time ago?
    
    Jax - Sure was... any sign of the escapees?
    
    Gemini - No, our troops have swept the area, but they seem to have slipped by us. We were
    hoping you would be able to track them down. Being the man on the inside...
    
    Jax - There is an exit ahead of me - I'll see where that takes me. I'll update you when I
    can.
    
    Gemini -  Be careful you don't scratch those big metal arms of yours... Gemini out.
    
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    D. Level 2: Sewers
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Jax walked through the door and it eventually lead him to a sewer. He traveled through
    the sewer solving puzzles until he came upon one of the members of the Black Dragon,
    Tasia. She was a ninja who teleports and uses swords. She wasn't enough to overwhelm Jax,
    who finally defeated Tasia.
    
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    E. Transmission 3
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Jax - Jax to Gemini-do you copy?
    
    Gemini - Yes Jax, I'm here... any news?
    
    Jax - Awwwhhh yeah... I just got in a close shave with a twin bladed honey. Too bad I had
    to take her out, though. That Tasia sure was a looker... (A picture of Tasia appears with 
    an X over it and says Tasia status: TERMINATED.) 
    
    Gemini - Uh, Jax... the mission, remember? If you can manage to concentrate for a little 
    bit, Jax, I've got some news for you. It turns out that the Black Dragon has tried to put 
    on a respectable face... One of the thugs let it speill that the Black Dragon is using 
    one of the corporate buildings downtown as a cover for their base of operations, but he 
    won't say which one...
    
    Jax - Well, Tasia sure wanted to stop me from going any further, so I've got a feeling I 
    must be very close to their hideout... I'll contact you the next chance I get. Jax out.
    
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    F. Level 3: Garage and Black Dragon Office
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Jax continued on. He came upon a garage. He gathered clues to find the key to the Black 
    Dragon office. He eventually found the key and entered the office of the Black Dragon. He 
    solved a few puzzles, and eventually arrived at the roof of the office. He fought his way
    through the roof and stumbled upon a doorway where Jarek waited. Jarek was very fast, but 
    was still no match for Jax. He defeated Jarek and then contacted Gemini again.
    
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    G. Transmission 4
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Jax - Gemini, I have just transmitted my location coordinates to you via the Black 
    Dragon's com-link. Have you received them yet?
    
    Gemini - That's affirmitive on the pickup location, Jax, and it's about time! What's it 
    take for
    a girl to get a phone call. Did you happen to run into any more of Kano's henchmen?
    
    Jax - Nothing I couldn't handle-Just some punk with a sharp toy. (A picture of Jarek 
    appears with an X over it and says Jarek status: TERMINATED.) Gemini, I'm going to upload
    the coordinates from a map I found. Seems like Kano is up to something big... I'm fonna
    have to take a little trip and meet up with him at the lost city of Sin Kiang.
    
    Gemini - ETA on air transport pickup is five minutes. Next time Jax, don't wait so long
    to make contact. I was getting a little worried... a woman doesn't like to be kept
    waiting. Gemini out.
    
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    H. Level 4: Sin Kian, Temple, and Gateway to Outworld
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Jax traveled through the lost city and eventually came upon an ancient cave. He solved 
    puzzles to exit the cave and came upon the gate to the outworld. Tremor was guarding the 
    gate so he had to fight him to be able to go through the portal. Tremor was no match for 
    Jax. Jax then received an incoming message from Gemini.
    
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    I. Transmission 5
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Gemini - What is your cuurent status, Jax?
    
    Jax - You're not gonna believe this... Kano has found an ancient gateway... it appears to
    be some sorty of portal into another dimension. God only knows where it's gonna take me.
    
    Gemini - What? Are you out of your mind? Jax, you can't be thinking about going through
    that portal. It could be a trap... You might not be able to get back!
    
    Jax - There is no time to wait Gemini! Knowing Kano, this must be a means to his dream of
    world domination... This is a risk that I've got to take. 
    
    Gemini - You must have a cast iron head to match your arms. This is clearly a suicide 
    mission. We need to get our experts over there to assess the situation. This is one ride
    even you're not big enough for, hero-I can't let you go in there alone.
    
    Jax - Gemini, I'm really touched by this show of concern. People are gonna start talking.
    You know. 
    
    Gemini - You are impossible! Don't you realize that our communications will be cut off?
    Our satellite systems weren't designed for interdimensional travel. 
    
    Jax - Look, Gemini. There is no time to wait for backup. I got this far on my own, and I 
    am right on Kano's heels. My sole concern is to stop him from executing his plan and to 
    bring him to justice. Look, don't worry your pretty little head. I promise I'll bring you 
    back something nice...
    
    Gemini - Just make sure you bring yourself back, and we'll talk from there. Gemini out.
    
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    J. Level 5: Outworld and FMV Sequence
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Jax then ventured into the Outworld. After exploring and fighting the warriors of the
    Outworld, he came upon another portal. He entered it and found Kano in a room with a
    mysterious glowing red jewel.
    
    It showed a FMV sequence when entering the portal. It was a conversation between Jax and
    Kano. The following is the script of what was said in the FMV:
    
    Kano - Well well well... If it isn't that pesky Special Forces grunt, come to seek 
    revenge for all his troops. I'm quite impressed. You have managed to defeat all of my
    Black Dragon members. Pity, they were all looking forward to restarting out little gang.
    Little did they know they were only pawns to slows you down and in that respect they
    succeeded. You're too late Jax. I have already reached the Eye of Shitian, and soon, you
    will know its power. And, hahahaha, delicious irony. You shall be the first to serve me.
    
    Jax - The only thing I'm gonna serve you is a steel fist to your face you delusional
    maniac. And after you get your pounding, I'm gonna haul your butt back to prison back
    home on Earth; Where you won't have the aid of this overgrown lightbulb. Sorry to burst 
    your bubble Kano, but the only thing you're gonna lord over is a porcelain thrown in a 
    four by four room.
    
    Jax and Kano then fought. It was a tough fight for Jax, but he eventually came up
    victorious.
    
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    K. Ending
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    A FMV started. Jax walked up to the Eye of Shitian and said, "I know exactly what I'm
    gonna do with this thing. He lifted it over his head and it let off a bright light. After
    the light disappeared, a portal opened. Kano laid at Jax's feet. Jax then sent a
    transmission to Gemini.
    
    Transmission 6
    
    Jax - Jax to Gemini, come in...
    
    Gemini - Jax! Well, sounds to me like someone has made it all the way back home.
    
    Jax - Awwwww yeeaaahhh... 
    
    The End!
