Major Natalya pants in a corner at the back of the Four Rums. She is trapped now. There are no bodies to sacrifice now, no more corridors to flee down.
Image

Nova swords clash violently!
Blueguy: At last, the great Major Natalya. Finally, a worthy foe!
Image

Natalya: You think you mock me, minifig? Many have tried to kill me, but all have failed. I was here before all the others, and I'll be here long after them, too.
Image

Blueguy: Things have changed, Major. See this? This is the Ragnablok Edition of the Rulebook, twice as powerful as the 2005 edition and 100% more finished than the 2010 edition. No Quantumsurfer can stand in its way!
Image

A deft flick of Blueguy's wrist and Natalya's OT Nova Sword falls from her hand.
Image

Natalya: I can't believe it... No one has bested me in combat before. Truly, you are the chosen one. Slay me. At least I die honorably.
Image

Blueguy raises his sword to behead her.
Image

Natalya: :busted: I won't let you kill me, fucker!
Image

Blueguy and Natalya struggle, neither able to overcome the other's strength.
Image

Kommander Ken watches, quietly rooting for Natalya.

Kommander Ken: Damn it, I was just about to get off this shift...

The last keg of Maniac Beer.
Image

Kommander Ken stands guard with some of the last of the Quantumsurfers.
Image

Blueguy approaches them, his hands bloodied by the murder of dozens of Quantumsurfers.
Image

Ken: I never thought I'd die fighting side-by-side with a bunch of weebs.
Image

Green: What about side-by-side with a friend?
Image

Ken: Aye, that was what I had hoped for.
Image

Ken: COME AT ME, YA BLOO GIT!
Image

CLASH!
Image

SHPEW!
Image

Zee: Oh
Image

Archduke: Zee! Noooo!
Image

HURK!
Image

Ken: Maniac Beer, you're my only friend now.
Image

Blueguy's face beam blows through the keg, disrupting Ken.
Image

Ken: Is this the end, then?
Blueguy: It is necessary.
Image

KA CRASH!
Image

Ken: Ninja_Bait!
N_B: Stand back! I'll finish this.
Image

Blueguy: You think you can stop me? Already most of your compatriots have failed. With the Brikwars Rulebook, I have all the power of a Quantumsurfer!
Image

N_B: You can't even comprehend the power of a Quantumsurfer, let alone match it.
Image

Blueguy: I comprehend enough! I comprehend that the Quantumsurfers are evil! I comprehend that they must be destroyed to save the Brikverse!
Image

N_B: The Quantumsurfers are all that stand between the Brikverse and destruction. Are you strong enough to stand in the chasm in our place?
Image

Blueguy: You underestimate my power!
Image

N_B: Don't try it.
Image

Image

Blueguy: Damn you! Who the hell do you think I am?! I'm the fucking chosen one!
N_B: You may be that. But you have no idea what that means.

Blueguy: I still don't understand. What are you showing me?
N_B: To you, your life has been your own - a series of choices and decisions you made. But the truth is that you, and every minifigure, only exist because Quantumsurfers lay the seeds of ossum in you, and the Dice confirm and feed that ossumness. We call that the Rule of Cool. Once, you were just a cool mercenary. But then you won the most important battle of Ragnablok by the luck of the dice, and your destiny was changed forever. That is how the Brikverse is supposed to work.
Image

Blueguy: So if that's working, why is there Ragnablok? Why is the Brikverse getting destroyed?
Image

N_B: You believed that the Quantumsurfers brought Ragnablok to punish minifigkind. That's only partially correct. The Quantumsurfers did cause Ragnablok, but to save the universe, not destroy it. You see, there is another rule of the Brikverse. Everyone is the Boss of Their Own Toys. Slowly, that rule was corrupted and began to override the Rule of Cool. You see, there are two sides to that rule - on the one hand, Quantumsurfers are allowed to guide their Kanon, but on the other, they can shut down anyone else who tries to do something with their stuff. It is an eternal struggle within our souls, to bring battle to each other, but also make sense of the madness that forms the Brikverse. We created Nehellenium to explain why so many factions could fight each other. Once the factions were on a map, we had to have politics to go with it. And with politics we had stagnation. No one could make meaningful moves against anyone else, because Everyone is the Boss of Their Own Toys. Collaboration sputtered along until it dried up completely. But the very fabric of the Brikverse hates stagnation.
Image

Blueguy: So Ragnablok was the only way.
N_B: Let the past die. Slash and Burn. You understand now. The Brikverse will die and be reborn through Ragnablok. New stories can flourish without the burden of old kanon. New heroes like you will rise and fall and the natural balance will be restored.
Image

Blueguy: What I need to understand is my place is in all of this. If I am just a minifig, why give me this power? Why let me believe Ragnablok could be stopped?
Image

N_B: The dice spoke, and gave you this power. I couldn't stop that. But it became apparent that it had to be a minifig. If any Quantumsurfer used Ragnablok to take control of the Brikverse, we'd end up in the same old place. We can't help it - it's already happening to some of the realms that noped out early. And so it fell to you.
Blueguy: How can I protect the future of the Brikverse? That power isn't within the Rulebook.
N_B: No, it's in this. Your whole life has been determined by the luck of a dice roll, made by some human in a basement somewhere. Today, as the Brikverse dies, you must roll the die yourself. Roll it for yourself, and for all minifigkind.
Ninja_bait hands a tiny die to Blueguy.
Image

Blueguy: I can feel the power... Is it safe?
Image

N_B: It has never been done.
Image

Blueguy: Nothing has been able to stop me so far. A tiny plastic cube does not scare me now.
Image

He rolls the die.
Image

A 4... A 6...
Image

The die lands.
Image

The map of Nehellenium shatters like a pane of glass.
N_B: FUCK
Image

The Human Ninja_Bait implodes in a violent flash of light.
Image

The Horsemen of Ragnablok emerge as the shards of Nehellenium converge on themselves.
Horsemen (in unison): At last! You have all brought the Brikverse to its final breaking point, and Our time has come! There will be a new world, yes, but it will not be renewed, oh no. We shall take our rightful place in control of the Brikverse, and impose the forces of Stability, Peace, Authority, and Poop upon it. All shall fall into tedium and ruin. No longer will there be Ragnablok. There will be only the BrikPockalypse!
Image

Blueguy is coughing blood, hurt by the explosion of NB. He stands, preparing to face his latest, and last, foes.
Image

Blueguy: Guess it's just down to you four and me.
He looks at the screen, at the shattered Brikverse, then back to the horsemen.
Blueguy: How will you take over the brikverse when you're so outnumbered?
Image

He leaps into the nexus, knowing only that he must fight one more time to save the Brikverse.
Image

He must hold the Horsemen here, at the Konvergence, lest they escape and unleash the true power of the brikpokalypse. He must hold them here for eternity.
