1 - Version History
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Version 0.5 (01/06/2008) - I have managed to establish the script. Before
uploading it to GameFAQs servers, this draft version was sent to a verifier
for quality assurance.

Version 1.0 (01/08/2008) - Criticisms were taken to heart; adjustments were
made and it was given a final set of spellchecks. This resulting version was
sent to be hosted.)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2 - Introduction
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It's been a long time since I last contributed a file to the GameFAQs server.
What I've done here is adapted another game script, this time for the then-
latest title in the Spyro the Dragon series of games. The latest two titles
seemed to have a strong and detailed storyline, and I felt happy to make a stab
at adapting this particular game.

Unlike prior games I've adapted scripts for, there was no other means to re-
play game scenes other than to go through the story again. This means a lot of
video footage was recorded myself and various notes taken during gameplay were
also of note here.

With that said, I hope you all appreciate the effort. Thank you.

All you do here is hold CTRL and press F to bring up the Find box. Type in the
code corresponding to the scene you're looking for, and you should get there
in no time. The cutscenes are branched into two types - standard scenes, and
"intermissions" - either cutscenes without dialogue, or areas with unique
spoken lines in-game.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

(The game begins with various drawn images layered on top of one another. Two
moons amongst a cloudy landscape and the scene of a mountain range near a
barren forest are seen to begin with.)

~SIERRA ENTERTAINMENT presents~

(More of the landscape is seen, going deeper into the wasteland.)

~A KROME STUDIOS production~

(A path is then seen out of the forest, leading straight towards one lone
mountain in the distance.)

~THE LEGEND OF SPYRO: THE ETERNAL NIGHT~

(The mountain itself looked like no ordinary mountain ever shaped; it had
malicious carvings all around it and its tip to be the shape of a dragon's
head, pointing towards the sky.  A huge purple beam of energy is then seen
being cast directly into its mouth from above.)

Cynder:     "My master returns."
Spyro:      "We're too late!"

(The source of the purple light is then seen to be coming from Convexity, an
air lock where a being known as the Dark Master was sealed away, prevented from
causing destruction towards the world. Spyro - the titular hero of this tale -
was seen combating Cynder - a vicious black dragon that stood to be at least
four times his size - in a battle to determine whether the Dark Master would be
freed - the fate of the world. Eventually, Spyro overcame her with a
concentrated burst of energy - a fury attack - that spawned a wide amount of
the battle area. It eventually weakened Cynder, leaving her to turn into her
original form; a dragon hatchling. He stood over the scene with his travelling
companion, a dragonfly named Sparx, close by.)

Spyro:      "She IS just like me!"

~Starring ELIJAH WOOD~

(The ground began to rumble and the portal that sealed the Dark Master then
began to pull a force of gravity towards it.)

~BILLY WEST~

Sparx:      "We gotta get out of here, NOW!"
Spyro:      "I can't leave her behind. I've got to save her!"
Sparx:      "What? Save the beast that's been trying to KILL US?"
Spyro:      "Yeah, but that wasn't her fault! She was being used by the Dark
            Master."

~KEVIN MICHAEL RICHARDSON~

(The gravity pull soon brought Cynder towards the stairs of the portal,
bringing her straight inside the light. Without a moment to spare, Spyro
released his grip from the floor and went into the portal with her.)

~MAE WHITMAN~

(After two seconds of tension, he re-emerged from the portal, carrying Cynder
with his paws and flying away from the scene.)

Spyro:      "Now we can go!"

~and GARY OLDMAN as Ignitus~

(Spyro's face was shown to be confident as he flew away, but his face soon
dropped when a whispered voice soon came into his hearing range.)

???:        "S-s-spyro... S-s-spyro..."

(He turned back, looking at the battle area with a more melancholic look. And
after that, the scene was black.)


1111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111
PART 1 - Dragon Temple
1111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SCENE 1 - Some Night Huh?                                             CODE 1NGT
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(The scene quickly re-emerged at a Dragon Temple at night. It turned out that
the flashback was a dream that Spyro was having.)

Sparx:      "S-s-spyro..."

(Spyro awoke with a start, looking around at a calm evening sky ahead of him.
From his right, Sparx made his re-emergence.)

Sparx:      "Hey Spyro, some night huh? Beautiful."
Spyro:      "What is it you want, Sparx?"
Sparx:      "Huh, why do I have to want something? I'm just ready to begin the
            best day ever now that the evil-psycho-she-dragon is gone."
Spyro:      "What? Cynder? What do you mean, Sparx?"
Sparx:      "Whoa, calm down big fella. My gosh, you're awfully tense. Hmm,
            haven't been sleeping much? You should listen to Volteer tell one
            of his stories. That'll put anyone to sleep."
Spyro:      "Sparx, what happened?"
Sparx:      "Okay, are you ready?"

(The scene fades to black and fades into a flashback showing Sparx moving his
way towards the Dragon Temple interior.)

Sparx:      "I get up to get some fresh air... since I don't sleep much myself
            these days with, uh, the female-of-fright hanging about. Lo and
            behold, there she was sneaking out into the garden."

(The scene then fades back to the present.)

Sparx:      (shivering) "She gives me the creeps dude. Hear my teeth?"

(Sparx's teeth then clatter amongst the tips of his fingers, expressing his
fear.)

Spyro:      "Come on. We have to find her. It's dangerous for her to be outside
            the temple at night."

(Spyro makes his walk towards the interior, but Sparx soon zoomed in front of
his face, stopping him in his tracks.)

Sparx:      "It's dangerous for any of us to be outside at night. Besides,
            Ignitus said you have to wait til your powers return..." (whisper)
            "...cause you're weak."
Spyro:      "No time to argue. Come on."
Sparx:      "Ah..." (cough) "You'd be helpless without me..." (cough) "I'd
            better come with you."

(Sparx catches up with Spyro and they both go through the Temple together.)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SCENE 2 - We Mustn't Wake Them                                        CODE 1WKE
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(Their progress was halted when they came into another room, where the
Guardians were seen sleeping together.)

Terrador:   "Hmmmmmph..."

(With the obstacle at hand, Spyro tilted his head towards Sparx.)

Spyro:      (whispering) "Quiet. We mustn't wake them."
Sparx:      (shouting) "What? I can't hear you over all this snoring!"

(With not a moment to lose, Spyro tiptoed his way across the room to the exit
at the other side, being careful not to distract anyone in the process.)

Cyril:      (mumbling in his sleep) "Yes of course..."
Volteer:    (mumbling in his sleep) "In the truth of the matter..."

(Finally, Spyro reached the other side; he turned around, waited for Sparx to
catch up, and then they left the room together.)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SCENE 3 - I Don't Belong Here                                         CODE 1BLG
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(Finally, Spyro managed to catch up to Cynder.)

Spyro:      "Cynder, what are you doing out here? It's dangerous."
Cynder:     "You shouldn't have followed me, Spyro."
Sparx:      "That's good enough for me. Let's go. Seeya! Huh."
Cynder:     "Please, don't make this harder for me than it already is."
Spyro:      "I'm just trying to understand."
Cynder:     "I'm leaving, Spyro. I don't belong here. After all I've done, all
            I've put you through... I can't stay."
Spyro:      "Cynder, nobody blames you for what happened."
Sparx:      "Huh, I do. Speak for yourself."
Spyro:      "Sparx..."
Cynder:     "No, Sparx is right. And every day that goes by, I'm reminded of
            it. Spyro, your place is here. Your destiny is here. But mine is
            somewhere out there for me to find."
Spyro:      "Cynder... I don't want you to go."
Cynder:     "Goodbye Spyro..."

(Cynder then runs away, leaving the scene. Spyro then shakes his head with
disbelief now that she had made her departure.)

Sparx:      "Now, can we finally get some sleep around here? I've been only
            sort of half-sleeping with one eye open for weeks now, alternating
            eyes of course. It lessens the strain but I tell ya, it's taken a
            toll." (gesturing at one of his eyebrows) "Hey, was this twitch
            always there?"

(He then drew his attention to Spyro, whom at this point had both of his eyes
half open, struggling to stand on all four feet.)

Sparx:      "Spyro? You OK buddy?"

(Spyro didn't answer. Instead, he collapsed on the floor as if he faced a
fainting spell.)

Sparx:      "Hey, I wanna sleep too, but I didn't mean NOW! Let's at least get
            inside - it's... it's dark out, man, and I don't like it."

(Sparx then zoomed his way towards the dragon, trying to bring him back onto
his feet.)

Sparx:      "Hello? Anyone home? Yoohoo!"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SCENE 4 - Make It Stop!                                               CODE 1STP
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(Spyro regained his senses, but he didn't find himself at the Dragon Temple.
Instead, he saw himself in a strange area with floating rocks and stars around
his field of view. He went to the end of the platform he stood on and looked
down at the abyss below.)

Spyro:      "Hello? Is anyone there?"

(An aged voice is then heard from nowhere.)

???:        "Do not be frightened, young dragon. You are not alone."
Spyro:      "Who are you? What is this place?"
???:        "I have summoned you here so that you might be warned. The
            Celestial Moons are counting down and time is running out."

(With an uncertain glance, Spyro took several steps back towards the center of
the platform. Not long after he stopped, he then heard several whispers around
the empty space, steadily increasing in volume until it became an unbearable
display of noise.)

Spyro:      "Make it stop!"

(Time froze in front of him, causing the rocks nearby to freeze in mid-air.)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SCENE 5 - Manipulation of Time                                        CODE 1TME
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(Spyro used some of the rocks to cross over to another platform, and as he did,
time unfroze.)

Spyro:      "How did that happen?"
???:        "The purple dragon can wield many abilities that others cannot,
            including time itself. Learn to master this ability, and you would
            be able to see things almost before they happen. But... use
            this gift sparingly, only when circumstances demand. Manipulation
            of time is not to be done without the utmost care."

(Spyro nodded with understanding.)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SCENE 6 - Feel the Fire                                               CODE 1FRE
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(Eventually, he reached a platform with a red light casting out of it. He
glided towards it and leant his head towards the glow.)

???:        "You seemed to have abandoned your true calling. It is your destiny
            to harness the powers of the elements. Yet, you possess not."
Spyro:      "I haven't been able to use my abilities for some time now."
???:        "Yes. Right now your powers lay dormant within you. Let's see if we
            might not awaken them."

(Spyro then stepped into the light and allowed it to channel through his body.)

???:        "Clear your mind Spyro, and feel the fire that flows through your
            veins. Allow its heat to consume you, and breathe with it. Now,
            rise up and release the firestorm within you!"

(Within the confined space, Spyro unleashed a fire element fury. It resulted
with his body being engulfed by flames, albeit causing no harm to him
whatsoever.)

???:        "Excellent Spyro! You're a natural. But now that a primal fire
            rages inside you, show me you have command of it." 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SCENE 7 - Seek Me Out                                                 CODE 1SEK
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(After several tests concerning combat with the element of fire, Spyro found
himself inside a temple at the end of the passage of platforms. Blue kelp was
seen waving around in the air in the hallway leading to the interior, which was
seen to be a large room with a blue projecting light in the middle. He headed
directly for that light, looking into it like he did with the fire platform.)

???:        "You have done well... and now, it is time for you to return. But
            be careful Spyro, the enemy approaches."
Spyro:      "Wait! You still haven't told me who you are!"
???:        "You shall know me as the Chronicler. Seek me out..."

(An image of a great tree in a forest is seen through the viewing pedestal.
And then, the scene faded to white.)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SCENE 8 - The Temple is Under Attack!                                 CODE 1TMP
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(The scene then restored itself to the Dragon Temple's guardian, where Sparx is
still seen around Spyro's side, trying to get him back onto his feet.)

Sparx:      "Hello? Hello, hello, hello? Anyone home? Hello? Hello?" 

(Spyro then awakened, bringing his head up, standing back on his feet and
observing his surroundings.) 

Spyro:      "Something is happening Sparx. I can't explain it."
Sparx:      "No kidding. While you were catatonic, this whole place has been
            hooting and howling. Listen."

(The sound of explosions were heard from the distance.)

Spyro:      (whispering) "What is that?"

(A bomb then landed its way not far from the pair, causing them both to stumble
back - Spyro rolling backwards and Sparx landing chest first into one of the
nearby dragon statues before falling to the ground on his back.)

Spyro:      "What's happening?"

(Spyro looked up, and above the mushroom growths at the top of the Temple's
garden he witnessed a flock of Dreadwings flying their way towards the scene.
More bombs were thrown, this time sending down boulders to seal the path from
the Temple that they initially used to get out.)

Spyro:      "The Temple is under attack! The others are still sleeping; we need
            to get back!"
Sparx:      "Are you crazy? Do you want to run towards the danger?"
Spyro:      "We're going to have to find another way in. Come on!"
Sparx:      "Ugh... I liked you better when you were sleepin'."

(And so they both ran towards another path to find a way back to the Temple.)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SCENE 9 - Ugly Ape Guy                                                CODE 1APE
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(Along their way, they found themselves at an entrance to one part of the
Temple interior. Several bombs dropped to the floor, and a selection of Ape
mercenaries were seen standing nearby. They all marched to the tip of the
platform they were on and stopped, with the leader looking on at the pair
using one of his hands above his eyes as a means of focus.)

Leader:     "The purple dragon!"
Sparx:      "Hey, ugly ape guy! Ooh ooh ooh! Now that we've exchanged
            pleasantries, can we fight?"

(The leader ordered the two to charge by gesturing with his sword, causing one
of the nearby soldiers to leap into the scene. The other didn't budge,
preferring to stay on the platform so the leader shoved it into the scene with
its shield.)

Sparx:      "Or at least you two can fight and I'll watch."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
INTERMISSION 1 - The Crumbling Floor                                  CODE IFLR
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(After the battle and a switch puzzle outside, the duo found themselves facing
an unstable floor. On one part of the passage, three ape soldiers jumped on,
ready to attack... only to have the floor crumble beneath them and leave them
to fall down the pit.)

Sparx:      "Up! Didn't see that comin'."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
INTERMISSION 2 - Dining With Spiders                                  CODE ISPD
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(The passageway soon took the pair outside again, where another Dreadwing bomb
opened up another passageway. A group of spiders were then seen advancing to
any apes foolish enough to come near them, devouring them as soon as they could
approach them. The sight left Sparx to shrug towards Spyro.)

INTERMISSION 3 - One Ape and Its Dogs                                 CODE IDOG
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(A later encounter saw another string of dreadwings coming towards another part
of the temple. Separating them from their entrance that time was a larger ape
leader with a pair of hound monsters near it. They both charged towards Spyro
and Sparx, obviously with no choice but to battle them.)

INTERMISSION 4 - More Dining With Spiders                             CODE IMRE
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(The path continued its way towards another part of the gardens, where more
dreadwings are seen flying with bombs ready to launch towards the ground and
more local spiders seen defending their territory by feeding on any ape soldier
that comes near them. The sight left Spyro to use one of his wings to cover
his eyes.)

SCENE 10 - We Need Your Help!                                         CODE 1HLP
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(Spyro then found himself at a rocky platform near the entrance to the temple.
There, he saw several ape soldiers fighting Ignitus at a nearby balcony. He
tossed one enemy over the side, only to be greeted with four more from behind,
in which he countered with a stream of fire from his mouth and one of which
getting kicked into a pillar. Six more soldiers then made their arrival,
causing him to jump into the air as they landed by means of bombs. A fireball
was then seen landing towards the ground, causing them to back away and give
Ignitus room to land. He used a tail whip to counter two of which, turned
around and noticed another one of the apes from behind; it quickly ran away
from the red dragon. From behind him, six more soldiers landed and he continued
to fight them, using fire to cause them to back away. But all too soon, the
apes had him cornered on the path between the Temple and the balcony.)

Spyro:      "Ignitus!"
Ignitus:    "Get down here, young dragon!"

(Just after he finished his sentence, one of the apes lunged towards him,
knocking his head back.)

Ignitus:    "We need your help!"

(Ignitus then focused on attacking the enemies around him by means of using his
head to melee them. During that time, Spyro glided his way down towards the
balcony. From nearby, an Assassin wearing thick armor and riding on a Dreadwing
paid attention to the action.)

Assassin:   (muffled) "Focus your attention on the purple dragon!"

(Spyro made his landing and turned around to face Ignitus, still with apes
surrounding him. From behind the purple dragon came more apes through the bomb
transportation; upon noticing him, the apes surrounding Ignitus then departed
and made their way towards him instead. Ignitus quickly aided by using a fire
fury to not only wipe the platform clear, but also knocking over several
pillars, separating the two dragons.)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(After fighting more apes, the Assassin came flying into view.)

Sparx:      (terrified) "You're on your own with this one, fella."
Spyro:      "This one? How is that different from the last one? Or the one
            before that?"
Assassin:   "Prepare to die!"
Spyro:      "Huh?
Sparx:      "He said something about preparing to die. Either that or he wants
            you to repair a pie. Yeah... no... yeah."

(The duel with the Assassin commenced.)

(Spyro easily overcame the Assassin, but he didn't perish.)

Assassin:   (still incomprehensible) "You haven't seen the last of me!"

(And so the Assassin flew away from the scene and the attacks on the Temple
came to a stop.)

Sparx:      "I'm just gonna assume you said it was great meeting you and have a
            nice day... in which case we thank you."

(Ignitus managed to re-emerge from the temple, looking out to the scene ahead.)

Ignitus:    "Is everyone alright?"

(Spyro and Sparx made their way across the pathway towards the red dragon.)

Ignitus:    "Where's Cynder?"

(Both dragon and dragonfly looked towards each other, before turning to Ignitus
ready to explain everything.)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SCENE 13 - Tales of the Chronicler                                    CODE 1CHR
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(Spyro and Ignitus were seen at the Pool of Visions, the latter trying to sense
her location.)

Spyro:      "See anything Ignitus?"
Ignitus:    "No... I can't see where Cynder has gone... just Darkness..."
Sparx:      "Wait. Cynder... Darkness... aren't they the same thing?"
Ignitus:    "What's this? Something is coming into focus."

(Through the pool, an image is seen of Spyro standing in front of a giant
tree.)

Ignitus:    "This is peculiar. I see you... at the base of a great tree...
            amidst a lake of midst and gloom..."
Spyro:      (excited) "A tree? I've seen that tree... in my dreams! Only..."
            (somber) "They usually feel more like nightmares."
Ignitus:    "Young dragon, you've been keeping secrets. What is it you see in
            these dreams of yours?"
Spyro:      "I'm sorry Ignitus. I thought they would go away. But they only get
            worse."
Ignitus:    "Relax, Spyro. Think."

(Spyro then sealed his eyes shut as he recollected his thoughts.)

Spyro:      "I keep seeing... a mountain draped in shadow... a face of stone
            between two moons and darkness."
Terrador:   "The Mountain of Malefor."

(The Dojo room illuminated with a flash of lightning upon the mention of the
location.)

Sparx:      (looking excited) "Whoa! Am I the only one that thought that was
            weird?"
Spyro:      "There was another, but it was more like I was seeing into the past
            and the future all at once. And there was a voice calling himself
            'the Chronicler'. That's when I saw the tree."
Terrador:   "Impossible!" 
Sparx:      (still looking excited) "Yeah, no kidding! There isn't even a
            storm."
Cyril:      "The Chronicler?"
Sparx:      "What? Don't encourage him."
Volteer:    "I don't believe it either! I've not heard that name in ages."
Ignitus:    "Nor has anyone. But there is no way that Spyro could have known.
            This is fascinating."
Spyro:      "Who is the Chronicler?"
Ignitus:    "The Chronicler is an ancient dragon of immeasurable wisdom, though
            I've only heard stories. In fact I've had my doubts as to the
            legitimacy of the tales. Yet now, I am left to wonder."
Terrador:   "As are we all. But if it is true, it is unsettling that the
            re-emergence of the Chronicler would coincide with an attack on the
            Temple, not to mention these other visions that Spyro was having." 
Ignitus:    "Yes, very. Tales of the Chronicler are often interwoven with tales
            of doom."
Sparx:      "Oh goody! I was afraid we might have to spend the rest of the
            night without any more doom!"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SCENE 14 - A Good Hiding Place                                        CODE 1PLC
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(All five dragons and the dragonfly were seen outside the temple, looking out
towards the Celestial Moons and their position in the sky.)

Volteer:    "It was only a matter of time, Ignitus. We've all felt it. A great
            evil is on the horizon."
Ignitus:    "Perhaps, but we mustn't rush to judgment. This evening has brought
            about many unexplained things."
Cyril:      "We may not have time, Ignitus. The Celestial Moons are almost at
            an eclipse, this we know for certain. We must prepare for the
            worst. The Night of Eternal Darkness draws nigh."
Sparx:      "If 'nigh' means soon, I'm outta here."
Terrador:   "Your instincts, though faint of heart, are true. We are no longer
            safe here. This recent attack is likely the first of many. The
            forces of the Ape King know of Spyro's existence and will not rest
            until they witness his demise."
Sparx:      (mimicking Terrador) "Demise..." (chuckles) "Hate to be you!"

(Sparx turned around to face the guardians, noticing that they were all giving
him a cold stare.)

Sparx:      "What? You guys need to lighten up!"
Ignitus:    "I'm afraid Terrador is right. As uncertain as things are, none of
            us can remain idle and... watch our worst fears unfold before us."
Sparx:      "Exactly. We need a good hiding place."
Ignitus:    "Volteer, you and Cyril must go to the mainland to learn what news
            you can.  Terrador, make haste to the Shattered Vale and warn the
            inhabitants of that region that darkness is spreading in Malefor. I
            shall stay back and search for Cynder. These are dangerous times
            for a dragon to be wandering about."

(Spyro looked up to Ignitus with a melancholic glance.)

Ignitus:    "May our ancestors look after us and keep us safe in these dark
            times."
Spyro:      "What should I do, Ignitus?"
Ignitus:    "Young dragon, you must travel by another path and seek out the
            tree from your dream. If the stories of the Chronicler are true...
            there may be hope for us yet. And I think I know where to begin."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(Various drawn images are seen of the dragons dispersing across the region;
they eventually focused on Spyro flying his way along a meandering river
towards a forest in the distance.)

Ignitus:    "There is an Ancient Grove within the forest at the end of the
            Silver River.  It is a secret place untouched by civilisation."

(The depths of the forest are revealed, along with traces of the river's flow
through it and various monsters hiding among the trees.)

Ignitus:    "The waters there are poisonous as well as the creatures who are
            nuturfied but you shouldn't encounter any real danger. Trust your
            instincts."

(The final image showed Ignitus waiting at the Temple's balcony.)

Ignitus:    "I shall be waiting for you here at the Temple when your task is
            complete."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(It didn't take long for Spyro and Sparx to make their arrival at the Grove.)

Sparx:      "Oh yes, lovely. He always sends us to the nicest places."
Spyro:      "Come on Sparx, it's not that bad."

(They both look at their surroundings. Various glowing shifty eyes were seen
hidden among the silhouettes of the surrounding flora.) 

Sparx:      (terrified) "Well sure, if you'd ignore all the evil beasts and
            visions of doom and eternal darkness, which sounds lovely by the
            way! Oh, and the fact that we now get to frolic through the magical
            creepy forest in search of some stupid tree! What's not to love?"
Spyro:      "You're psyched. Let's go."

(And so, they both start to venture their way through the forest.)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SCENE 3 - A Wrong Turn                                                CODE 2TRN
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(After a brief amount of time travelling, the pair found themselves near a
clearing.)

Spyro:      "What are we doing here? I'm not even sure what I'm supposed to be
            looking for. I think we're lost."

(Sparx, however was seen paying more attention to a set of butterflies hovering
around the scene.)

Sparx:      "Hey, have you tried these yet? Hmmm... they're delish."

(He then proceeded to eat a pair as they flew towards him.)

Sparx:      "Mmmm... come on, try some."
Spyro:      "Sparx, don't eat that. You don't even know what it is!"
Sparx:      (belching) "Nonsense... they're perfectly edible."

(They both advanced further into the clearing, only to come to a stop when a
voice was heard nearby.)

???:        "Alright, maggots. Time to spread out."

(In front of them, they both witnessed a flock of dog-like pirates wandering
nearby.)

Leader:     "Don't bother snaring anything smaller than a Skurvywing. Skabb
            only wants prize fighters this time, and double the bounty for the
            one who captures Arrrborick!"

(During this time, Spyro and Sparx took hiding behind a nearby tree root.)

Spyro:      "Hey, this isn't right. Ignitus said this place was uninhabited.
            We must have taken a wrong turn."

(Spyro then proceeds to head back the way he came.)

Sparx:      "All those in favor of turning back?"

(In the middle of Sparx's sentence, Spyro faced another fainting spell. The
sound of his body colliding with the floor attracted the pirates' attention.)

Leader:     "Aye! It came from over there. Go see what it is."

(Sparx then hovered his way towards Spyro, his face showing concern for not
only the dragon's move, but also for a coming reaction from feeding on the
Grove's butterflies.)

Sparx:      "Oh..." (burp) "Not now!"

(Unable to hold himself together, Sparx released his grip from around his mouth
and unleashed one loud and lengthy belch.)

Sparx:      "Buuuurrrrhhhh!"

(The pirates then came closer towards the root; Sparx had no choice but to
hover towards them.)

Sparx:      (sheepish) "Uh... so... how is everyone today?"
Minion:     "Ha ha, the little bug isn't much bigger than a bog-rat!"
Sparx:      "Hey, who are you calling a bug you crazy-eyed mangy drool mutt?"

(Sparx's reaction just caused the minions to jump on the spot with rage.)

Sparx:      "Uh-oh..."
Leader:     "Get him!"

(The minions started to chase after Sparx in retaliation.)

Sparx:      "Mommy!!"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SCENE 4 - The Power of Ice                                            CODE 2ICE
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(The next vision that Spyro saw was the same mystical area in which he first
met the Chronicler and regained his fire power. An immediate difference was
felt as he stood on all four feet - a chilled draft strong enough to make him
shiver on the spot.)

Spyro:      "It's cold here..."

(He quickly gained his composure and glided his way towards the same platform
where he obtained the fire breath from, only this time the pool of light had a
blue aura shining around it and snow drifted around it.

Spyro:      "Chronicler? Are you there? I've done what you've asked of me, but
            I'm afraid I'm lost."
Chronicler: "As long as the spirits of the ancestors are with you, you are
            never lost. Calm yourself Spyro, and cool your thoughts."

(Spyro stepped into the light, channelling its energy through his body.)

Chronicler: "Do not let your fire control you. There are other elements at play
            here. The power of ice also moves through you, just as the chilled
            winds whip through your wings. Let it... expand!"

(Spyro then performed an Ice Fury within the confined space, resulting in him
being covered with a chilled aura around his body.)

Chronicler: "I knew you'd remember. Life seeks out balance, young dragon, and
            one who can master fire and ice is truly powerful in the shifting
            face of danger." 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SCENE 5 - Now What?                                                   CODE 2WHT
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(After facing several tests with his new power, Spyro eventually made his way
to the same temple where he departed the area from before.  He instantly made
his way to the blue projecting light in the middle.)

Spyro:      "Okay. Now what? What is it you want me to do? I think I'm entitled
            to know what's happening."
Chronicler: "You already know what is happening... of the great evil that is
            awakening. But there is more that you must understand."

(The viewing pedestal projected a vision in front of Spyro.)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SCENE 6 - The Well of Souls                                           CODE 2SLS
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(The resulting vision was one of the Mountain of Malefor in its full glory.)

Spyro:      "I've seen this place before. It frightens me."
Chronicler: "This is an evil place, Spyro. It is called the Mountain of
            Malefor, asylum to the wandering phantoms and lost spirits of those
            who had turned to darkness. But to the spirits themselves and the
            black hearted, it goes by another name."

(At the tip of the mountain came a group of apes, led by their monstrous king -
an armor-clad creature with a glowing green eye, a broad staff in his hand and
gray hairs showing elsewhere.)

King:       "The Well of Souls!"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SCENE 7 - First Catch of the Day                                      CODE 2CTH
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(Spyro then awakened, only to find himself at the edge of the river, far away
from the clearing that he was in before.  He brought himself up on all fours
and looked around for any trace of Sparx.)

Spyro:      "Sparx? Sparx? Sparx, where are you?"

(Almost instantly, Sparx made his appearance from behind a tall rock, with the
group of pirates still chasing after him.)

Sparx:      (panting) "Spyro, I'm outta shape."

(The pirates then slowed down and stood directly in front of the pair.)

Leader:     "What have we here? Arrr first catch of the day!"

(Spyro and Sparx turned to each other, knowing what must be done in order to
vanquish the pirates.)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SCENE 8 - Give Me a Sign                                              CODE 2SGN
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(After much pirate combat and exploration of the Grove, Spyro and Sparx found
themselves at a thicket deep within the forest. Standing right in the middle of
it was a lone willow tree with a red aura surrounding it.)

Sparx:      "Is that your dumb tree? It's beautiful. Can we go now?"
Spyro:      "This feels like the right place, but... I'm not sure what I'm
            supposed to do here."
Sparx:      "Wonderful. I'm gonna go wait over there... you know, give you a
            few minutes. Or maybe there was a lily pad you forgot to sing on or
            a rainbow you can talk to..."

(Sparx hovered away from the scene, leaving Spyro alone as he continued to
glance at the tree.)

Spyro:      "Hello? I'm here. Give me a sign or... something."

(The tree then sunk into the river with a roar; that soon caught Sparx's
attention as he too witnessed the scene. From the tree's place came a titan
formed entirely out of wood and leaves, standing at a monstrous height in
comparison to the dragon and dragonfly.) 

Sparx:      "Uh, it's my turn to pass out. You're on your own, buddy."

(True to his words, Sparx drifted towards the ground, obviously doing a fake
faint.)

Spyro:      "Oh brother."

(Spyro was left to focus on the wooden monster, which then proceeded to pound
on its chest and roar at him. There was no choice but to fight it.)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
INTERMISSION - To Higher Ground!                                      CODE IHGH
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(After one phase of the fight, the monster pounded on its chest and kicked
Spyro to a platform above the water. It tried to send its fists down towards
the dragon, but he quickly evaded by stepping onto more platforms positioned
higher from each other, the second one in which he jumped on having him to
hang onto the edge and pull himself up. Eventually he reached a wider clearing
high above the river, and when he turned around to witness it, he was greeted
by the monster's face.)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
INTERMISSION - This Doesn't Look Good                                 CODE ILGD
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(Further depletion of the monster's energy caused it to temporarily bring its
head down... only to re-emerge and climb onto the same platform that Spyro was
on.)

Spyro:      "Waaargh! This doesn't look good!"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SCENE 9 - No Need for Remorse                                         CODE 2RMS
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(Finally, the monster was weakened. It was left to hop on the ground, clutching
one of its feet in pain, before falling from the platform into the water. At
the same time, Sparx re-emerged from his "fake faint".)

Sparx:      (exasperated) "What the... oh, you killed it! We came all this way
            so you could kill it?"

(It didn't take long for Sparx to hover his way towards Spyro's position.)

Sparx:      (mockingly) "Spyrooo... I am the mighty tree... calling you from
            across the voiiiid. Journey hither and vanquish meeee."
Spyro:      "Yeah, I don't think I was supposed to do that. Wait... you don't
            suppose that was the Chronicler?"
???:        "Alas!"

(The call caused the pair to turn in the direction of a group of pirates along
with their captain - presuming to be Skabb. It donned a parrot on each of its
shoulders, referred to here as Scratch (the brown one) and Sniff (the purple
one).)

Scratch:    "It's the purple dragon who's been wandering lost in the Ancient
            Grove. You've been quite a nuisance to us."

(Skabb reacted with a series of roars and a hyperactive nod from his head.)

Sparx:      "Whoa! What's with the gurgling nitwit?"
Sniff:      "If I were you I'd shut my mouth... I won't say it again!"
Spyro:      "Sparx, maybe you should stay out of this one."
Scratch:    "Yes, mind yourselves. To answer your earlier question... no! That
            isn't the Chronicler, whoever that is. That was Arborick, and he
            was going to be the main attraction in our tournament! And now it's
            ruined."
Spyro:      "Gosh. I really feel bad about that."
Scratch:    "Oh really, no need for remorse... you'll do just fine."
Sparx:      "What does he mean by that?"

(Several drawn images are then seen, showing Spyro getting knocked out cold
from an overpowering sword attack by Skabb.  The group then took him inside
their boat on a pole, his legs tied around it and his body left to hang upside
down. The boat then sailed towards a larger vessel, where it is assumed that
this would be where the "tournament" will happen.)

(The scene then shows Spyro and Sparx inside a prison cell; the former was seen
pacing around the room while the latter...)

Sparx:      (singing) "Swing low, sweet chariot, coming for to carry me home,
            wawawawawa..."
Spyro:      "Sparx, must you do that? 
Sparx:      "Well, maybe I must I do that. And you know, it might just be crazy
            enough to work." (singing) "Come on Spyro, put that sorrow behind
            you and clap your hands with me!"

(Spyro reacted with a shake of the head before continuing to pace the room.)

Sparx:      "Let the joy come pouring down and rain on me and you. Hmph hmph
            hmph... can't you feel it? Hmph, hmph... can't you just feel the
            love in the room tonight? Hmph, hmph..."

(Spyro was left to pace his way towards the door of his cell, and as he looked
out to the corridors, he ended up noting a familiar mole come into his view.)

Spyro:      (excited) "Mole-Yair!"
Mole-Yair:  "Spyro? Is that really you old friend?"
Spyro:      "It's me. Where are we? Can you get us out?"
Mole-Yair:  (whispering) "You are on Skabb's ship, and will likely be made to
            compete in the arena fights, like the other prisoners. I, too, am
            prisoner here, as are many of my kinsmen. But we moles are too
            frail to make for worthwhile entertainment, so we are made to serve
            grog to the scavengers."
Spyro:      "Mole-Yair, you have to get us out."
Mole-Yair:  "Shhh! We'll talk later. Someone is coming."

(Mole-Yair then left the scene back the way he came. And from the other side of
the corridor, Skabb made his appearance with Scratch and Sniff in tow as well
as several minions nearby.)

Scratch:    "I trust your living quarters are to your liking?"
Sparx:      "I don't know. My room mate could be more fun though."
Sniff:      "I thought I told ya to be quiet, fool!" (at Spyro) "And You, get
            ready to fight! It's hurtin' time baby!"

(Skabb then made his departure from the viewpoint of the pair.)

Sparx:      "I really, I mean, more than really, hate those birds."

(The minions then approached the door to the cell, ready to escort Spyro out.)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SCENE 2 - The Blundertails                                            CODE 3BLN
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(Fellmuth Arena was a packed circular one, with minions filling the decks
above the fighting area and Skabb occupying a throne directly opposite the
arena entrance. The crowd was cheering madly, ready to embrace whatever would
happen down below.)

Scratch:    "Fiends and felons! Scoundrels and swindlers! Welcome... to the
            first event of the evening! Tonight we bring you a very special
            battle, sure to quench your thirst for brutality!"
Sniff:      "Enough of this jibba jabber! Let's bring on the pain!" 
Scratch:    "Introducing a creature both rare and powerful... a creature of
            might and magic! Prepare yourselves and feast your eyes... on Spyro
            the DRAGON!!!"

(The arena gates were opened and Spyro and Sparx stepped towards the fighting
area.)

Sparx:      "Wow! If we weren't about to die, I'd say this is pretty neat."
Minion:     "Oh, he's no dragon! Just a whelpling!"
Spyro:      "I've got a bad feeling about this."
Sparx:      "Ah, that's the butterflies in your stomach. Huh, trust me, I
            know."

(Finally they were settled onto the playing field.)

Scratch:    "And his opponent... you've seen them before, and loved them! We
            offer you none other than the twins of terror themselves, the
            Blundertails!"

(The Blundertails arrived into the arena, shown to be two pirates each riding a
scorpion with a cannon mounted onto its tail. One of which swiped its pincers
towards Spyro, whom quickly jumped back before he could get hurt.)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SCENE 3 - This Is No Puppet Show                                      CODE 3PPT
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(The fight was over not long after it started - Spyro overcame the Blundertails
and the audience applauded his efforts.)

Sparx:      "Great crowd, huh? I wonder if I can get 'em to do the wave..."
Scratch:    "Well done, well done indeed. Step forward, little dragon, and
            receive your glory."

(Before Spyro could make as much of a step towards Skabb, he suddenly fainted
once again.)

Sniff:      "You waiting for someone to move for you boy? Don't just stand
            there, this is no puppet show!"
Sparx:      "Oh no, not again!"

(Sparx then hovered around the fighting area as the audience started to
retaliate with frustration.)

Sparx:      "Don't worry! There's nothing to see here! It's all under control. 
            And allow me to entertain you with the healing power of love while
            we wait. Um... um... Swing low... I don't hear ya, come on. Swing
            low, sweet, what's the matter with you all? You stink!"

(Sparx retaliated by folding his arms with disgust, but he quickly showed panic
as one of the arena cannons launched fire on him. He barely dodged it however.)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SCENE 4 - The Power of the Earth                                      CODE 3ERT
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(Meanwhile, Spyro faced another vision; he made a return to the same mystical
area where he re-obtained his fire and ice breaths and came to a stop at a
pool of light, which was seen glowing with a green aura.)

Chronicler: "You've come far, young dragon."
Spyro:      "What? Ignitus said you would help, but you've only led me on a
            path to nowhere."
Chronicler: "Our path through life is not always the path we choose. Sometimes
            our paths are chosen for us... and it is out destiny to follow it.
            Wherever it may lead."

(Spyro responded with an understanding yet insecure shake of the head before
stepping into the light.)

Chronicler: "Be steady Spyro, and use the power of the earth to feel your way."

(Another fury attack was unleashed, with a rupture of clovers and small leaves
surrounding him as he pulled it off. The energy was unleashed, leaving his
body to have a green glow around it.)

Chronicler: "The power of earth and nature is a mighty one, for as the earth
            moves, so does everything with it. Be mindful as you wield it."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SCENE 5 - Open Your Eyes                                              CODE 3EYE
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(After a series of tests concerning the earth ability, Spyro soon found himself
once again at the temple right at the end of the path.)

Spyro:      "I want to know what is happening. I've done what you've asked of
            me and followed your path."
Chronicler: "Yes, but a time will come when you will have to choose your own
            path... and you are not ready. Open your eyes..."

(Spyro halted feet away from the viewing pedestal and another vision was
shown.)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SCENE 6 - The Night of Eternal Darkness                               CODE 3DRK
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(The vision showed several drawn images of the apes advancing towards the
Mountain of Malefor and the Celestial Moons coming closer together.)

Spyro:      "Why are they going towards it?"
Chronicler: "It is their calling. The black hearted creatures of this world
            cannot resist its temptation. The Well of Souls beckons them as the
            Night of Eternal Darkness approaches."
Spyro:      "What is the Night of Eternal Darkness?"
Chronicler: "It is the night when the Celestial Moons come together in a great
            eclipse... that shrouds our world in darkness. The Well of Souls is
            the pinnacle of its terrible shadow... stirring the spirits of the
            deceased from their eternal rest and permitting them to roam freely
            within the halls of the mountain... if only for a short while. And
            soon, the Night of Eternal Darkness will be upon us. Find me... in
            the Celestial caves of the White Isle."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SCENE 7 - Time to Bruise                                              CODE 3BSE
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 
(Spyro awakened back in his cell, only to be greeted with Skabb at the door and
Sniff flying inside.)

Sniff:      "Get up, lazy fool! It's time to bruise, not time to snooze! I...
            you know, I-I can't even look at you. You disgust me."
Sparx:      "Hey... you and me both, pal-y."
Sniff:      "Don't touch me!"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SCENE 8 - Ravage Rider                                                CODE 3RVG
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(The arena was packed again for the next fight, and Skabb, Scratch and Sniff
have already taken their positions to witness it.)

Scratch:    "Are you ready for more?"

(The audience provided a loud cheer in response.)

Scratch:    "Then without further ado, please give a hAAAArrrty welcome... to
            Spyro the Dragon!!!"

(Spyro and Sparx both made their arrival into the fighting area.)

Scratch:    "And his opponent... needing little introduction..."
Sniff:      "The captain of crunch... the prince of pain himself..."
Scratch:    "The one and only... RAVAGE RIDER!!!"

(Ravage Rider was shown to be a small flying vessel standing to be roughly
twice Skabb's size. Cannons and flamethrowers were seen armed onto its sides.)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SCENE 9 - We Totally Rule                                             CODE 3RLE
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(Once again, Spyro overcame the battle and they were greeted to a brash
applause.)

Sparx:      (to Spyro) "We totally rule. Maybe now we can ask for a room
            upgrade!"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SCENE 10 - Fan Mail                                                   CODE 3FML
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(All too quickly, Spyro and Sparx were thrown back into their cell.)

Sparx:      "Can we at least order some room service?"
Spyro:      "Sparx, we need to get out of here. Something terrible is going to
            happen."
Sparx:      "I know. If I don't get some food I am gonna freak out!"

(A brief pause for thought occurred.)

Sparx:      "I got it! Why don't you shoot some sparkly magic outta your face
            and blow the gate up?"

(Spyro responded with a shake of the head. But before anything else could
happen, Mole-Yair appeared at the door.)

Mole-Yair:   "Spyro, you are in danger. I have a message for you from another
             prisoner. Here, take it."

(Mole-Yair gave Spyro a scroll for him to read.)

Sparx:      "Yahoo! Fan mail!"

(Spyro then proceeds to read it.)

Spyro:      "Dear friend, there are whispers going about the ship... Word of
            your captivity has traveled quickly. Many of the prisoners are
            uneasy. They say that the Ape King himself has placed a bounty on
            you... and all of the dragons. These are dark times. But know this,
            you have allies. I look forward to the day when we can meet. Hunter
            of Avalar."
Sparx:      "That was thoughtful. I particularly like the part about the dark
            times and the danger."

(Just then, a minion appeared in front of the door.)

Minion:     "It's show time..."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SCENE 11 - The Executioner                                            CODE 3EXC
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(And so, it was another return to the arena for Spyro and Sparx.)

Scratch:    "Guests of the arena! We have exciting news for you regarding one
            of our combatants. Shall we bring him out?"

(Spyro and Sparx advanced to the fighting area.)

Scratch:    "There is a rumor about that this little purple dragon may be of
            great importance. What say you, dragon? What greatness can you 
            offer?"
Sniff:      "The only thing great you'll be showing us is GREAT PAIN!"
Scratch:    "Bring out the Executioner!"

(The Executioner was shown to be a gladiator clad in yellow armor and red
tunic, and holding a crimson-tinted sword in one hand and a shield matching its
armor in the other. It pointed its sword towards Spyro and laughed at him
mockingly.)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SCENE 12 - A Bonus Match                                              CODE 3BNS
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(Not surprisingly, Spyro overcame the might of the Executioner and won another
battle.)

Scratch:    "Well, well. It appears we are amongst greatness. This little
            dragon has defeated everything we've thrown at him."

(The audience started to howl loudly.)

Scratch:    "But fret not, oh faithful fans. Tonight, we have a special bonus
            match!"
Sparx:      "Cool, a bonus match!"
Scratch:    "Spyro the Dragon versus... the former queen of conquer herself...
            Cynder!"

(Spyro turned around and saw Cynder at the arena entrance. His first response
was a shake of the head with disbelief.)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SCENE 13 - I Want Out                                                 CODE 3OUT
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(Cynder advanced into the arena, ready to make her assault.)

Sparx:      "AAH!! I told you she was evil. Heheh... look, my eye's twitching
            again."

(True to Sparx's words, one of his eyes was seen twitching with tension. The
audience, however, were amused by the clash of the two dragons, both seen
circling each other.)

Cynder:     "Just like old times, huh Spyro?"
Spyro:      "Cynder, I'm not going to fight you."
Cynder:     "Relax. I'm just trying to put on a show for the crowd while we
            figure out what to do."
Sparx:      "Don't trust her. She wants to eat me!"

(The sound of a roar was then heard over the arena. Several dreadwings were
seen flying towards the scene dropping a stream of bombs, causing the arena to
be shrouded in a cloak of dust.)

Spyro:      "W-what's happening?" (cough, cough)

(Sparx proceeded to head around the sides of the arena in panic.)

Sparx:      "I want out... I want out..."

(All too quickly, Sparx soon found himself looking directly at the face of a
passing dreadwing.)

Sparx:      "I want in... I want in!"

(Rubble started to fall around the arena. In that time, Spyro tried to search
for Cynder amongst the dust.)

Cynder:     "Get away from me! Help!"

(He finally noticed her, but she was being carried away by a dreadwing.)

Spyro:      "Cynder!!"

(Before he could react, Sparx returned to his side.)

Sparx:      "Spyro! This way! There's an opening!"

(And so they both leave the arena together.)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SCENE 14 - Things Just Got More Complicated                           CODE 3CMP
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(During their escape from the scene, the pair found themselves at a landing
outside the ship. Down below were dreadwings flying away, and ahead of them
were leaking gas pipes placed between wooden planks gracing the ship's lower
deck.)

Spyro:      "I think things just got more complicated."
Sparx:      "Good. I was afraid that escaping the burning ship would be too
            easy."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SCENE 15 - The Chamber Gates                                          CODE 3CHM
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(During their traversal of the ship, the pair found themselves approaching
Mole-Yair, whom at the time was seen standing outside a cell containing his
'kinsmen' inside.)

Spyro:      "Mole-Yair, the ship's under attack! We have to get off this
            thing!"
Mole-Yair:  (panicked) "Spyro! Please, my companions are still being held
            prisoner and the chamber gates are locked! We'll need to find a way
            to open them.
Spyro:      "Okay. Sit tight. I'll come back for you."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SCENE 16 - Merci Mon Frere                                            CODE 3FRR
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(Spyro opened the chamber gates by sealing various gas pipes above the prison
doors, causing a machine nearby to explode. All the prison doors were opened,
allowing Mole-Yair and his companions to escape by a small boat nearby.)

Spyro:      "Okay Mole-Yair, you're safe. Get far away from here. 
Mole-Yair:  "Merci, mon frere, thank you very much. I hope we can meet again,
            perhaps under better circumstances, hmm?"

(Spyro responded with a nod.)

Spyro:      "Good luck Mole-Yair."

(The boat departed, taking Mole-Yair and his party away into the distance.)

Sparx:      "Hey, that guy just gave me an idea! Why don't WE get off the
            burning boat?!"
Spyro:      "Not yet. We need a map to a place called the White Isle, and I
            think I know where we can find one."
Sparx:      "You know I hate you, right?"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SCENE 17 - A Score to Settle                                          CODE 3SCR
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(Upon further exploring the burning ship, Spyro and Sparx found themselves in a
treasure horde on a lower deck.)

Spyro:      "Whoa, look at all this stuff."
Sparx:      "Oh, sure. Take your time. Look around. It's not like we're about
            to plummet to our DEATHS in a heap of FLAMING..."
Spyro:      "Alright, you've made your point. Let's find the map."
Sparx:      "One step ahead of you buddy."

(Sparx gestured to a sea chart on a nearby desk, but before they could look at
it properly... a familiar figure came into earshot - Skabb and his parrots.)

Scratch:    "Well... if it isn't the purple menace. We hope you weren't...
            thinking of leaving." 
Sniff:      "Yeah! We've got a score to settle, CHUMP!"
Sparx:      "Hey! Who are you calling chump?"
Sniff:      "You, fool! You!"
Scratch:    "It's astounding, the amount of trouble you've managed to cause."
Spyro:      "You've only brought it on yourselves."
Sniff:      (to Skabb) "You gonna let him talk to you that way, doodle-brain?"

(Amusingly, Skabb reacted with a childish nod.)

Sniff:      "Shut up, fool! Fire the cannon!"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SCENE 18 - We're Going After Them, Right?                             CODE 3AFT
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(Skabb tried to attack Spyro, but the dragon overcame every attack thrown at
him and weakened the pirate captain. But not long after knocking him down, he
came back on both feet. He used his cannon arm to blast open a nearby window.)

Scratch:    "This is where we part ways."
Sniff:      "So long, CHUMPS!"

(Skabb jumped out of the window and somehow flew his way away from the scene.

Spyro:      "What the...? How is that even possible?"
Sparx:      "We can't just let them get away. We're going after them, right?"

(Spyro turned to Sparx with a raised eyebrow.)

Sparx:      "Wait... did I just say that out loud?"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
INTERMISSION - Tailing Skabb                                          CODE ITLL
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(Spyro and Sparx were seen chasing after Skabb as they went through the pirate
fleet. But the chase soon came to a stop when one of the ships fired a set of
cannons towards the dragon; he rolled away from one, swerved from another and
completely slowed down to evade a third.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SCENE 19 - I Quit All the Time!                                       CODE 3QUT
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(The pair finally caught up with him on a circular deck among the fleet.)

Sniff:      "SUCKA, you just don't know when to quit!"
Sparx:      "Then you don't know us very well. I quit all the time!"

(Spyro turned to Sparx with an irritated leer.)

Sparx:      "Sorry... I thought that was gonna sound cooler..."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SCENE 20 - That Felt Good                                             CODE 3FGD
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(After a final bout, Spyro managed to weaken Skabb to the point that he
staggered his way towards the edge of the platform and fell from the edge into
the waters below. But Scratch and Sniff managed to keep dry and hovered their
way towards the platform's edge.)

Sniff:      "That ain't nothin'. We don't need him to take out this punk! I
            pity the fool that messes with us! Welcome to the world of hurt!"

(Sparx retaliated by punching Sniff, causing him to fall from the pedestal he
was on and fall to the floor before passing out.) 

Sparx:      "Hooo-aah! That felt good!"

(Scratch reacted by fleeing the scene before the same could be done to him. His
reaction left Spyro to turn to Sparx, who just responded with a shrug.
Finally, they both left the scene and the fleet altogether.)

Sparx:      "Did... did you see me back there? I was like... BAM! And he was
            all... oof! Which reminds me... where are we going?"
Spyro:      "I didn't get a very long look at the map, but there's gotta be
            some sort of landmark."
Sparx:      "Sure. I'll just keep my eyes peeled for the flashing sign that
            says SPOOKY MOON TEMPLE."

(Suddenly, Spyro started to face another fainting spell, causing him to drop
from the sky towards the water.)

Sparx:      "Oh no... Please tell me you're just pulling over to go to the
            bathroom!"

(Concerned for his safety, he hovered down towards the water.)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
INTERMISSION - The Passing Turtle                                     CODE ITRT
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(In a series of illustrations, Spyro was seen crashing straight into the water,
now completely passed out. He could have been left to sink deep into the ocean
had it not been for a passing whale-turtle creature nearby. It surfaced above
the water with the dragon on its back and sailed towards an island on the
horizon.)

SCENE 1 - Spirit of Electricity                                       CODE 4ELC
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(As the turtle surfed across the ocean, Spyro faced a vision of himself back at
the mystical area once more. The pool of light at the start of the path had a
yellow tint this time around.)

Spyro:      (to himself) "Something's not right."

(He then approached the pool.)

Spyro:      (louder) "Why is it so dark here? Can you hear me? Is anyone
            there? I want to know what has happened to Cynder!"

(From above the archway leading away from the area, a lightning flash was
seen.)

Chronicler: "A flash of lightning is born of the sky and its tempers, young
            dragon. You must learn to control your own emotions if you are to
            tame the free spirit of electricity."

(Taking the words into account, Spyro stepped into the yellow light.)

Chronicler: "Surrender to its erratic nature. Allow its energy to charge
            through your body and anticipate its movement... then unleash it...
            willingly."

(He then unleashed an electric fury attack inside the confined space, resulting
in his body giving out electric sparks when done.)

Chronicler: "This power is accentuated by your impulsive nature. Trust your
            instincts, Spyro."

SCENE 2 - Maybe I'll Just Take a Peek                                 CODE 4PEK
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(Several tests were underdone with the electric power, and after he was done,
Spyro made his way towards the temple at the end of the path.)

Spyro:      "Okay, I've completed your test. What do I do next? How can I find
            you? Are you there?"

(No response.)

Spyro:      "Great, now the voice inside of my head is ignoring me. Maybe I'll
            just take a peek."

(He looked into the viewing pedestal, where another vision is seen.)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SCENE 3 - The Traitor Returns                                         CODE 4TRT
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(Inside the mouth of the Well of Souls, Cynder was seen being taken towards a
group of apes, tied to a chain. Obviously leading the apes at the other side
of the room, was the Ape King himself.

King:       "So... the traitor returns!"
Cynder:     "You can't go through with this, Gaul!"
Gaul:       "Hahaha! Nothing can prevent this. We are merely here to welcome
            our Master back into the realm and join him at his side. But fear
            not, Cynder. You've been such a faithful servant, I'm sure he'll
            take you back. And if not, you will have the honor of being the
            first to perish by his hand. Long have we waited! Long have we
            suffered! "But soon, our Master will return... and his coming shall
            bring forth a new age of power for the Apes... and we shall have
            our revenge!"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SCENE 4 - I Think We're Here                                          CODE 4HRE
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(Meanwhile, the whale-turtle had already dropped off Spyro and Sparx at a
deserted beach. The sky itself was tinted a dark blue.)

Sparx:      "Goodbye, freaky little turtle monster! Goodbye, goodbye, thanks
             for everything!"

(At this point, Spyro awakened and brought himself back onto all fours.)

Spyro:      "What happened?"
Sparx:      "Well, let's see... you've been hearing voices in your head and
            have led us all over the place... which is good because we're
            having so much fun."

(The pair then proceeded to walk towards the back of the beach.)

Sparx:      "And now we're stranded on an enchanted island and I just can't
            wait to see what happens next!"

(They both stop at the opening to a cave.)

Spyro:      (somber) "Wait... I think we're here."
Sparx:      "Oh, goodie."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SCENE 5 - Sacred Threshold                                            CODE 4THR
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(After getting through the cave and passing the surrounding areas, Spyro and
Sparx found themselves at the entrance to a temple, bearing a large courtyard
and two dragon statues near the front door.)

Voice:      (echoed) "Sacred Threshold... Hallowed Ground... Pathways
            Unfold... Lost is Found... Prove your Worth with Quick Desire...
            Ice and Earth, Electric... Fire..."
Sparx:      "What the... now I'm hearing voices."
Spyro:      "What does that mean?"
Sparx:      "How would I know? Wait! I'm having a thought!" (pause) "Nope,
            nope, yeah... nope... never mind. I lost it. I got nothing."
Spyro:      "We must have missed something. Come on. Let's look around."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SCENE 6 - Expose Your Heart                                           CODE 4HRT
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(A series of tests concerning Spyro's breaths were undergone. Before long, he
encountered a white pool of light inside the temple.)

Spyro:      "Hold on. I think we found it." (yelling) "Hello? Is anyone there?"
Sparx:      (to Spyro) "Hey, if there is... could we... you know, not wake it
            up? Because everything we've met so far has tried to kill us."
Voice:      "Expose your heart to summon ghost... then face alone what you fear
            most."
Sparx:      "I knew it! This place wants us dead! We should've turned back
            while we had a chance!"
Spyro:      "I need to do this, Sparx."

(Spyro walked closer to the light.)

Sparx:      "Yeah? Go ahead. Expose your heart and see what happens."

(But before Spyro could step into the light, Sparx quickly zoomed in front of
him.)

Sparx:      "Wait! Don't do it! You can't leave me behind in the whacky moon
            temple... with all the whispering walls and the crawly thingies!
            They wanna make me part of their freak show!"

(Spyro didn't listen. He stepped into the light and was transported to the top
of the temple, where he came face to face with the Elemental Dragon - a dragon
that mostly resembled Cynder's adult form but instead of having black scales,
it continuously changed color.)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SCENE 7 - The Chronicler                                              CODE 4CHR
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(After battling the dragon - and overpowering it - another door inside the
temple was opened. Spyro and Sparx approached its entrance.)

Sparx:      "You go first."

(Spyro did just that. As they both approached the room, they were greeted by a
giant hourglass in the middle of the room and hundreds of books stacked upon
shelves gracing its walls.)

Sparx:      "Ooooh... what's this?"

(Sparx flew over to the hourglass.)

Sparx:      "I think it's a magic wishing lamp." (whispering) "Hello? Genie?
            You in there?"
Spyro:      "This is incredible! The entire history of the dragon race... it
            looks like it's all here."
???:        "It is. Well, most of it."

(At the sound of the voice, Sparx backed away from the hourglass.)

Sparx:      (in awe) "Did you hear that? It spoke to me!"

(From the other side of the room, there came a gray, aged dragon donning a cuff
around its neck, a navy cloak around his body and a belt with a pocket storing
scrolls.)

???:        "The records in this hall date back to the beginning of time...
            nearly."
Spyro:      "The Chronicler!"
Chronicler: "Yes, Spyro. It is I... and I've been waiting for you."
Sparx:      "Oh, well... I hope we didn't keep you waiting too long. We got a
            little held up back there... with the, uh... well, you know...
            RIDDLES OF DOOM!"
Chronicler: "It was a necessary evil. I had to be sure, Spyro." (pause)
            "I haven't had any visitors... in my solitude... for over a
            thousand years."
Sparx:      "Shocker! Try getting rid of the psychedelic dragon outside!"
Spyro:      "You've been here for that long? 
Chronicler: "Oh yes. But I have my books... and I watch and wait.... and listen
            for things to come... and then add them to the books of time. You
            are also written in the books, though... many pages are still left
            incomplete."
Spyro:      "I am? Can I see?"
Chronicler: "Of course you can. This one is yours. Look."

(A book floated down and opened up in mid-air. Spyro approached it and began
reading it.)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SCENE 8 - The First Purple Dragon                                     CODE 4PRP
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(Various drawn images are seen in the book, the first of which showing an image
of Gaul and those following that concerning a past raid on the Dragon Temple.)

Chronicler: "You've seen this creature before."
Spyro:      "Why is he in my book?"
Chronicler: "It was Gaul who led the raid of the temple the night of your
            birth... when Ignitus rescued your egg..."
Spyro:      "...and when they took Cynder's."
Chronicler: "Yes... that was most unfortunate."

(Another image showed a younger looking Sparx playing in mud near his parents.)

Chronicler: "Oh! And look, here is little Sparx."
Sparx:      "He-hey! Nobody needs to see that... ever."
Spyro:      (interrupting) "Wait. Can these books tell the future?"
Chronicler: "In parts. Though, just glimpses of the future really."
Spyro:      "Then I want to know what will happen to Cynder."
Chronicler: "Spyro, you don't und-
Spyro:      (interrupting) "Please! I must know!"
Chronicler: "Very well... but hers is a darker tale."

(Spyro's book was returned to the shelves, and Cynder's was brought down. They
opened it and witnessed several images of the apes torturing Cynder with dark
energy from her hatchling form to her quick adult growth.)

Chronicler: "Spyro, you must understand, when she was taken by Gaul, she was
            poisoned and corrupted, made to do the Dark Master's bidding. Her
            entire life has been spent in shadow. She knows no other way. And
            when the Dark Master returns... she will concede."

(An image of a demonic dragon was shown, presumably being the Dark Master.)

Chronicler: "No one can resist the temptation... not even the strongest among
            us."
Spyro:      "I don't believe that."
Chronicler: "Spyro, let me tell you another story."
Sparx:      "Oooh, oooh, oooh! Can I pick the story this time?"

(The next image on screen showed one of a small dragon being surrounded by
elder ones in a temple environment.)

Chronicler: "There was once a dragon, long ago, whose raw power was far greater
            than anyone had ever seen or... could imagine."

(Several images after that showed the dragon mastering several different
elemental powers.)

Chronicler: "At first, he mastered fire... which was odd because he was not a
            fire dragon. Then came ice and wind... and other abilities none
            thought possible. Is this story sounding familiar?"
Spyro:      "It was a purple dragon... like me."
Chronicler: "The first purple dragon... In the beginning, he was encouraged...
            and secrets of elemental mastery were passed onto him willingly by
            the elders. But his power... was limitless... it knew no boundary.
            He consumed... everything."

(The next set of images showed the dragon leaving the temple, establishing a
fortress on a mountain and an army, and using that army to mine gems.)

Chronicler: "When he would not stop, he was cast into exile. And from his new
            fortress within the mountain, he built an army... not of dragons,
            but of apes... and taught them to artificially harnessing the power
            of the gems... our life force."
Spyro:      "You're talking about the Dark Master..."

(The next few images showed one of the Dark Master looking over a cliff edge, a
pit forming within the mountain and its resulting form, and a full body-shot of
him.)

Chronicler: "Yes. And in his dark seclusion, the sheer weight of his malice
            cracked the very foundations of the mountain, splitting the earth,
            creating a pit of despair... where the lost souls of this world
            could reside."
Spyro:      "The Well of Souls!"
Chronicler: "Created by the very beast who now seeks to escape it."

SCENE 9 - The Plan                                                    CODE 4PLN
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(The previous tale left Spyro in concern as he looked back towards the
Chronicler.)

Spyro:      "B-but you said that the eclipse would only allow the spirits to
            escape for a short while!"
Chronicler: "Yes, but if there was ever a spirit powerful enough..."
Spyro:      "Then how do we stop it?"
Chronicler: "There is no stopping it. It has been written."
Spyro:      "Then why have you called us here? I don't understand."
Chronicler: "To ride out this storm... where you'll be safe... and live to
            fight another day."
Sparx:      "Well, that sounds pretty good."
Spyro:      "What about the others? What about their safety?"
Chronicler: "I fear the worst for the others."
Spyro:      "And Cynder? Am I supposed to sit here and do nothing, while she
            joins THEM?!"
Sparx:      "Let me field this one... YES!"
Spyro:      "No! You keep talking about choosing a path. But what about Cynder?
            She was never given a choice. I have to try... I'm going and you
            can't stop me."
Chronicler: "Then... I won't. Young dragon, I've waited far too long to watch
            you leave here stricken with grief and doubt. You'll need a clear
            mind and a pure heart if you are to withstand the evil that
            consumes that place."
Spyro:      "I know this is not the path you would choose for me. But I have to
            walk my own path... and do what I know is right."
Chronicler: "So be it, Spyro. I will show you the way. But you must hurry. The
            dark hour of the eclipse is near... and haste will be your only
            ally."
Sparx:      "Alright then... well... uh, just so I know why I died, the plan is
            to wander into the land of darkness to face an army of evil
            creatures that will want to kill us so we can try to rescue another
            evil creature that has already tried to KILL US!? I'm pumped!
            Let's... let's do this!"

INTERMISSION - The Underground Passage                                CODE IPSS
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(The next sequence was marked by illustrations. In order to leave the scene and
reach the Mountain of Malefor, Spyro stood in front of the hourglass in the
middle of the room. It then levitated in the air, revealing an underground
passage underneath the Temple. He and Sparx ventured down there, flying through
the resulting tunnel towards a light at the end of it.)

SCENE 1 - You Don't Need to Come With Me                              CODE 5CME
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(Spyro and Sparx made their arrival at the base of the Mountain of Malefor,
where a harsh snow current was seen drifting its way towards the ground and
flashes of purple lightning were seen in the distance.)

Spyro:      "Sparx, you don't need to come with me. I won't think less of you
            if you stay behind."
Sparx:      "No way... and miss the opportunity to live out my worst
            nightmares?"

(Spyro responded with a subdued nod before walking towards the fortress.)

Sparx:      (to himself) "Yeah, boy... what am I saying?"

(Sparx then decided to catch up to his companion.)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SCENE 2 - Time to Feel Some Pain                                      CODE 5FPN
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(During their exploration of the fortress, the pair found themselves on a
balcony, coming face to face with the Assassin once again.)

Assassin:   (muffled) "Mwahahahaha! Time to feel some pain!"
Sparx:      "Ahhhh! He wants to steal my brain!"
Spyro:      "Actually, he said it's time for pain.
Sparx:      "Really? Whew!" (quietly, to himself) "For a second there I thought
            I lost you, buddy."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
INTERMISSION - The Statue Room                                        CODE ISTT
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(After defeating the Assassin - again - Spyro continued to explore the
mountain. But not far from the summit, he found himself approaching a giant
room with green crystals, candles, glowing liquid pools and a statue of the
Dark Master at the end of it. This was it; he was almost there.)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SCENE 3 - A Horrible Pit of Despair                                   CODE 5PIT
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(After reaching the exit from the room, all that remained was a short ascent
towards the mouth of the mountain. Upon getting there, Spyro looked down
towards the pit and the streaming purple energy pouring into it.)

Spyro:      "What is this?"
Sparx:      "It looks like the entrance to a horrible pit of despair, of which
            we will probably never escape. But we should probably go inside
            to be sure."

(Staying true to his word, Sparx zoomed towards the pit.)

Sparx:      "Wooooo!!"
Spyro:      (to himself) "He's so weird."

(And then, Spyro descended into the pit as well.)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SCENE 4 - The Nightmare Never Ends                                    CODE 4NMR
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(Carefully, the pair floated their way towards ground level. Upon landing,
Spyro observed his surroundings.)

Spyro:      "Where are we?"
Sparx:      "The better question is... what's that smell?"

(They both looked ahead, and saw a purple beam casting straight through the
floor ahead of them. They both approached it, but they were soon stopped by
green gases bursting out of other nearby crevices.)

???:        "Hahahahaha! The purple whelpling!"

(Once the room was illuminated, the pair got a clear glance of Gaul and various
ape soldiers near him.)

Gaul:       "It's fitting that you should be here tonight, as we bear witness
            to the dawn of a new age and the failure of your pathetic race of
            dragons."
Spyro:      "I wouldn't miss it, Gaul."
Gaul:       "Then please, have a seat."

(Using his scepter, he zapped a green energy beam towards Spyro, causing him to
flinch with weakness.)

Gaul:       "Hahahahaha! Foolish dragon, you are no match!"
Spyro:      "I've made it this far, haven't I?"
Gaul:       "Yes, you have been quite elusive. Had I but known that all it
            would take would be your miserable amity for Cynder."

(During his line, Sparx zoomed towards a nearby ape.)

Sparx:      "Psst! What's amity?"
Gaul:       "How tragic really... that she should be the one to destroy you!"

(As Gaul spoke, Cynder swept towards the scene and knocked Spyro around the
arena by means of a surprise attack.)

Sparx:      "Ahhhh! The nightmare never ends!"
Spyro:      "You don't need to do this, Cynder."
Cynder:     "Just like old times, huh Spyro?"

(Before she could respond any further, she edged closer to him.)

Cynder:     "Same as last time. Line me up with his staff."

(Both dragons circled each other for a short while, and when Cynder was aligned
with Gaul's staff, she jumped above Spyro and swept towards him. But he
retaliated by catching her with his other hand.)

Gaul:       "This isn't over!"

(Gaul then threw Cynder towards a nearby wall, leaving her to fall to the floor
and pass out. Spyro dropped his jaw in shock and a nearby ape went to approach
him, ready to fight.)

Gaul:       "Don't touch him! The whelpling is mine!"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
INTERMISSION - The Final Battle                                       CODE IBTT
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(Gaul jumped down from the pedestal he was on with a colossal thud. Spyro
looked on at him with a fearful glance as he saw his opponent withdraw two
large daggers from his back, ready to fight with. The ape released a guttural
roar and the dragon maintained an action stance. The battle commenced!)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SCENE 5 - Your Time is Over                                           CODE 5TME
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(Gaul was weakened down with nothing but melee attacks, but he didn't seem
ready to give in just yet.)

Gaul:       "Your time is over, dragon!"

(They both took action stances before making their next reactions. Gaul jumped
into the air and slammed both of his daggers inches away from Spyro's feet,
causing the floor around them to collapse and for them to fall another floor
down. The ape's scepter also fell alone, its crystal shattering upon landing.
The sight caused the ape to lower his head to the floor. Right at that moment,
the Celestial Moons made their alignment, causing a brash surge of power to be
hurled straight towards Spyro. Gaul brought himself back up onto his feet, only
to witness Spyro facing a change underneath the light. Though still vague, he
reacted with another guttural roar as the dragon emerged from the light with
darker scales and glowing pupil-less eyes. This was the transformation to his
"Dark" form.)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SCENE 6 - Finish Me!                                                  CODE 5FNS
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(Further combat between the two left Gaul weakened further. That left him to
stop at the edge of the arena.)

Gaul:       "What are you waiting for, dragon? Finish me!"

(There was no reaction.)

Gaul:       "Hahahaha! Coward! Hahahahahaha!"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
INTERMISSION - Gaul's Last Stand                                      CODE ISTN
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(Spyro finally reacted with a fury attack. It first begun with two gust-like
attacks, causing Gaul to be pushed back slightly. And finally, the resulting
fury revealed itself - three ripples of energy that first weakened Gaul
further, then turned him into stone, and finally shattered the remains. The Ape
King was no more. Content that the fight was over, Spyro flew his way back to
the upper level.)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SCENE 7 - What's Happening Down There?                                CODE 5HPP
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(Back at the top level, Cynder - now recovered from the earlier throw -
approached the edge of the floor with Sparx hovering near her.)

Cynder:     "What's happening down there?"
Sparx:      "Spyro? You okay buddy?"

(Spyro then flew up into the light, still maintaining his Dark form.)

Sparx:      "Aaaaaaahhhhhh!"

(Sparx hovered back as he witnessed his form. Eventually, he returned to
Cynder's side, she too showing anguish over the transformation.)

Cynder:     "Oh no!"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SCENE 8 - Ride Out This Storm                                         CODE 5RDE
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(Cynder made her rush towards the edge of the light, still upset over Spyro's
appearance.)

Cynder:     "Spyro, stop!"

(Spyro then glanced over to Sparx.)

Sparx:      "Whoa! Calm down man, it's me!"
Spyro:      "I... I can't..."

(Cynder then leapt into the light and pushed Spyro out and onto the floor
nearby. His appearance then reverted back.)

Sparx:      "Spyro..."

(Spyro looked on at Sparx with a melancholic glance; he then maintained the
expression as he looked towards Cynder landing near him.)

Spyro:      "What have I done?"
Cynder:     "You're okay, Spyro. You're with friends."
Spyro:      "I'm sorry. I... I couldn't stop."

(Just then, the room started to cave in, many of the first few rocks instantly
showering near its entrance.)

Sparx:      "Uh-oh! That's our only way out!"

(The rocks started to pile together as Cynder made her rush towards it.)

Cynder:     "Come on! Now's our chance!"
Spyro:      "Just go!"
Cynder:     "Get up, Spyro! We're not leaving without you!"
Sparx:      "Usually I would say ignore her, but she's making sense this time."

(Spyro brought himself onto all fours, but it was all too late. The falling
rocks completely sealed the passage.)

Spyro:      "Oh no... we're trapped!"

(Spyro, Sparx and Cynder all shared grim facial expression, now that they now
know that they would never escape from the crumbling mountain. But...)

Chronicler: "Ride out this storm... and live to fight another day..."

(The words expressed from the Chronicler prior to coming to the fortress stuck
to his mind. Action was ready to be taken.)

Spyro:      "Get close to me! Now!"

(Sparx and Cynder reacted to Spyro's words, huddling tight towards him. He
somehow formed a cloud of energy that soon transformed into a crystal, freezing
them into place. Meanwhile, the fortress started to collapse into rubble, and
from where the mouth of the mountain once was, a thick black cloud formed above
it. The Mountain of Malefor was presumably no more. Cue end credits.)

(The final scene is shown as an illustration. Sparx, Cynder and Spyro were all
seen, sealed away inside the formed crystal in the ruins of the mountain.)

Chronicler: "Young dragon, all our hope now lies with you. When you wake up, it
            will be a different world. But know this; you are not alone. You
            have allies."

(The image then zooms out, and the last thing shown on screen is an armed
archer making its way towards the crystal. The tale is over, for now.)

5 - Email Policy
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As with most script writers, I can accept certain types of email from the
people that have approached the file. Thus, here's an Email policy if you want
to contact me in any way.

Bear in mind that I will accept the following -

*Any errors that slipped by my fingers.  Just be careful which version of the
script you see first...
*Emails only in HTML or Text format - I find them easier to digest, aye?

However, I will not accept the following -

*Emails asking for help to beat a certain part of the game.  This is NOT A
WALKTHROUGH!
*Nonsense emails. I'm not buying a 200lb snail from Sri Lanka... -_o
*Chain letters. Argh :(
*Emails with executable files. I'm worried if they have viruses inside them
or something.
*Spam (repeated messages). Please, get a life!
