A calm pond surrounded by trees. A soft humming of a flying dragonfly is heard, the dragonfly lands on a stray of reed. A perch slowly surfaces, ripples the water with it's fin. Aims to leap at the dragonfly as a pikes opens it's jaw under it. The pike swallows the perch.

2 EXT. PLAINS – DAY.

The sound of battle is heard as we follow a trail of hoofs. Scattered dead bodies of warriors, a broken emblem of the Kzuria kingdom. A white mantle stained with blood.

The dead king Gesthal pierced by several arrows.

BARKEEPER

Yeah, the rumour says so. Soon the way to Thornwood will be shut. Sure lord WESTER will be pissed.

BRASKA rests his arm against the table while holding the cup in front of himself, watching the liquid as a big, brute painted blue burst through the door. A large yell shakes the tavern and BRASKA sighs.

BRASKA

Here we go.

BRASKA puts down the cup then draws his sword before turning against the brute, now reinforced by more ravaged bandits.

BRASKA

LAWRENCE sighs, tosses a bone to the floor.

You wish of me to join them? EMETHYS shakes his head slowly.

EMETHYS

No, enter the labyrinth. Find the princess.

LAWRENCE sits down by the fireplace. BRASKA snorts LAWRENCE of as he turns towards the fireplace.

BRASKA

She can be the ugliest princess around, but she is our only hope.

LAWRENCE sighs.

LAWRENCE

By the ancient I hope this goes well.

A crackling is heard from bushes nearby and a batch of bandits leaps out screaming. BRASKA pulls his sword from his waist as HYJNIR sits up.

HYJNIR

BRASKA

I seek a lost princess.

HESTER nods, smiles widely.

HESTER

No princess has been lost here for ages. But if one is, the labyrinth should be your target. But be wary traveller, danger still lurks in the labyrinths dark tunnels.

HESTER's face turns pale and he coughs.

Sure the boss does not want a new sword?

HYJNIR picks up a bronze shield from the ground.

HYJNIR

King GESTHAL gave it to him.

LAWRENCE picks up two lonely herbs laying in the pile then looks at HYNIR.

LAWRENCE

You only bought two?

HYJNIR nods.

HYJNIR

Yes, no need for herbs when you can heal us.

LAWRENCE sighs shaking his head.

LAWRENCE

I'm a mage, no healer or monk.

VIK runs of while BRASKA's eyes meet HYJNIR's.

BRASKA

Where is LAWRENCE?

HYJNIR

Shopping, we forgot some.

BRASKA glances over at the bar crowded with people.

BRASKA

Well be off as soon as he arrives.

VIK stops at the table setting down three cups before sitting down beside HYJNIR.

VIK

The labyrinth is a dangerous place, few has entered in recent years. Even the kings knights does not enter.

BRASKA nods to insure his interest.

VIK

But you see. The labyrinth is filled with treasures, and my friend in the tent right beside this tavern is interested in.

KING looks over at his advisor's, smiles.

KING

Yes, only those chosen by the king has right to enter the labyrinth.

KING rises from his throne, waves and a advisor sneaks up to his side. KING whispers in the advisor's ear before looking at EMETHYS again.

KING

EMETHYS bows.

KING

Will you accompany some guards to deal with them?

EMETHYS shakes his hooded head.

BRASKA, HYJNIR stands looking at the open gate. LAWRENCE standing behind them looking down along the road leading to the village.

HYJNIR

It have been open for some time, but no fresh footsteps are leading in our out.

LAWRENCE

Some riders are approaching us, guess we better get going.

HYJNIR nods agreeing. BRASKA takes a step towards the gate then LAWRENCE and HYJNIR follows him.

24 EXT. FOREST – DUSK.

A butterfly flutters between the trees, a bright flower appears afar and the butterfly heads for it. Suddenly it gets caught in a spiders web. It twitches, turns and struggles but becomes even more stuck. A black spider appears, runs up to the butterfly and bites it.

25 INT. LABYRINT TUNNEL - ???

BRASKA tiredly leans against a wall while HYJNIR sits down, takes of his shoes and begins to massage his feet. LAWRENCE looks ahead at a crossing of two tunnels then backwards against a long tunnel with torches on both sides.

LAWRENCE

Know where to go BRASKA?

BRASKA shakes his head. HYJNIR makes a yawn loudly.

HYJNIR

I'll sleep some, wake me when your minds are made up.

LAWRENCE turns towards BRASKA.

LAWRENCE

Shall I use my view spell again?

BRASKA leaves the wall and walks closer to LAWRENCE.

BRASKA

No use, better rest up and tend to our wounds.

LAWRENCE

How about I cast egress and well be back in town. We can attempt again tomorrow.

BRASKA

Time is running short. Well press on, the princess must be somewhere inside this labyrinth.

A youngster clad in white robes and with fair long hair, pendant around the neck, MIKLAS, steps out of the crossing in front of them. MIKLAS walks towards the group.

MIKLAS

There are no princesses here if there was I'm sure I would have found her.

BRASKA and LAWRENCE looks at MIKLAS with suspicion.

MIKLAS

The name is MIKLAS I'm a a scholar. I have been exploring this labyrinth for a long time.

MIKLAS looks at BRASKA, LAWRENCE and HYJNIR.

MIKLAS

So you are searching for a princess?

BRASKA

Yes, you sure she's not here?

MIKLAS nods.

MIKLAS

Once a evil named Dark Sol trapped a princess within this labyrinth. The writing on these walls says she was saved by three heroes. No princess here remains.

MIKLAS looks around as doubt slowly enters his face.

MIKLAS

But I cant be sure. MIKLAS smiles. I haven't been to the labyrinth proper.

BRASKA smiles as his eyes brightens with hope.

MIKLAS

But to gain entrance to the labyrinth proper we need to complete four trials.

The light in BRASKA's eyes fade while MIKLAS turns against a wall, brushing it with his hand.

MIKLAS

I'm far to weak to complete them alone, but together we might make it. MIKLAS looks straight at BRASKA. We might find the princess.

BRASKA sighs and looks at LAWRENCE. LAWRENCE nods.

BRASKA

Show us the way.

25 INT. DARK CATHEDRAL – NIGHT

EMETHYS leans down before the darkness. Heavy breaths are heard.

ZOOL
(irritated)

You have not dealt with BRASKA. Tell me... why?

EMETHYS raises his hooded head.

EMETHYS

The door is closed behind them, there is no way out for lord BRASKA and his men. EMETHYS giggles. And NENTHYS lies in ambush.

A pleasant noise is hear from within the darkness.

ZOOL

That whelp is a fine one.

A heavy door opens afar the cathedral, no light enters from the corridor. A dark figure dressed in a black armour and a mantle with a hood that hides the face, ALATHYS. ALATHYS kneels down in front of the darkness without giving EMETHYS a glance.

ALATHYS

Queen THARMYNDA has retreated.

ZOOL rises from within the darkness and the noise of his armour is heard.

ZOOL

Prepare our forces to invade Thornwood dear ALATHYS, you EMETHYS will deal with the king.

26 INT. LABYRINTH PROPER FOURTH FLOOR – ???

BRASKA, LAWRENCE, HYJNIR and MIKLAS looks at a old and rusted cell door. Al is silent around them.

MIKLAS

This is where the princess was kept.

MIKLAS walks forward into cell, looks at writing on the wall.

MILKAS

Here one of the heroes fought his own father in order to save the princess.

The group turns around as the sounds of footsteps are heard behind them. At the corridor crossing a dark figure, NENTHYS stops, slowly looks at them.

NENTHYS

No princess here, it's what the walls say.

The group draws it's weapons.

NENTHYS

So eager to fight.

NENTHYS raises her arm and her pale blue hand slips out of the robe.

NENTHYS

You will never leave alive... darkness!

A thick darkness occupies the entire labyrinth.

NENTHYS
(giggles)

I have a gift, a present for you...

Wriggling noises are heard as a group of Vyper closes in on them. LAWRENCE leans towards BRASKA.

LAWRENCE

Egress?

BRASKA nods

LAWRENCE

Egress!

The party disappears.

NENTHYS

My master.

27 INT. TOWN SQUARE – DAY

The group appears out of nowhere and panted in relief.

MIKLAS

That was close. Who was that one?

LAWRENCE

Ain't you the scholar here?

HYJNIR

We would have won!

BRASKA looks towards the sky and the dark clouds approaching from far away.

BRASKA

She knew we where coming.

BRASKA looks on MIKLAS with suspicion.

MIKLAS

Maybe they believe the princess was there to?

BRASKA raises his eyebrows.

MIKLAS

Come to my place, we'll speak some more.

28 INT. COURT ROOM – DAY

EMETHYS bows before KING.

EMETHYS

My sleep was disturbed this night, ye, I feel the presence of foul beasts. I ask of you, dear king, to... die!

EMETHYS

I claim this castle for my king.

A hoard of Trolls and Minotaurs break trough the gate behind EMETHYS and engages the royal soldiers.

29 INT. ALCHEMIST – DAY

The group stepping into what seems to be the empty alchemist shop, LAWRENCE grows uneasy, then LYRISSA suddenly appears from behind the counter. LYRISSA looks chocked at BRASKA a long while before LYRISSA smiles, jumps over the counter into his embrace.

LYRISSA
(happy)

Lord BRASKA.

BRASKA holds the girl stroking her hair.

BRASKA

My princess.

LAWRENCE takes a step back and sneaks out the door without anyone noticing.

BRASKA

Finally.

MIKLAS smiles as HESTER enters the room from the storage room.

HESTER

I said they would come in time of darkness.

BRASKA looks over at HESTER.

HESTER

She has spoken well about you lord BRASKA.

BRASKA
(a little upset)

You knew.

HSETER nods.

HESTER

I knew, but I needed you to fetch MIKLAS back. He is the one with the answers you need.

BRASKA looks around.

BRASKA

Where is LAWRENCE?

All begins to look around. LYRISSA turn towards HESTER.

LYRISSA

Please tell lord BRASKA about the darkness.

HESTER nods, gesturing towards the storage room.

30 EXT. VILLAGE EDGE – DAY

LAWRENCE stands looking at the castle far away while he chews on a piece of herb.

LAWRENCE
(mumbling)

BRASKA will kill me, if I knew, I would not have done it. I didn't know what she looked like. LAWRENCE smile. But if I knew. I would not hurt to explore her dungeon.

LAWRENCE sees a Troll walking out of the castle.

LAWRENCE

There is a severe lack of cuties in this town. Not my fault the only hot one around is a princess, she should wear a sign or something.

A small red-headed girl, in blue robes holding a big book, LUCCA, steps up to LAWRENCES side.

LUCCA

Is that a Troll?

LAWRENCE nods remaining in his own thoughts. LUCCA looks up at him.

LUCCA

Are they dangerous?

LAWRENCE nods.

LAWRENCE

A little, cast slow then some high level blaze. Muddle works fine to.

LUCCA's eyes widens and a smile graces her lips.

LUCCA

Thanks, ill remember it. See you around.

LUCCA walks off down the road towards the forest.

LAWRENCE

I'll better head back before they begin to worry. (LAWRENCE eyes opens in chock.) Trolls, girl, princess, darkness!

LAWRENCE runs into town.

31 INT. ALCHEMIST STORAGE ROOM – DAY

All sitting on barrels and boxes listening to MIKLAS.

MIKLAS

The labyrinth was once the prison of a evil by the name of Dark Sol. The three heroes rescued the princess and after gathering the shining arms and received blessing from the water spirit they defeated Dark Sol. Peace was restored to Thornwood, one of the heroes, Milo, is my ancestor. He became counsellor to the king, the hero Pyra became a student under the wizard Xern. But the last hero, he who goes under many names. Became a lord of Thornwood, married the princess Jessa. MIKLAS pauses a short while. Jessa and her husband went of on a ship to the far kingdom of Guardiana, but they newer made it there. This kingdom has since fallen into decline.

They hear LAWRENCE breaks through the door into the alchemist shop.

LAWRENCE

BRASKA, they have invaded the castle.

LAWRENCE stumbles into the storage room. LYRISSA looks at him with a pinch of disgust.

LAWRENCE

Come on!

They all scramble to leave the storage room.

32 EXT. CASTLE GATE – DAY

BRASKA stops at the sight of all the trolls lumbering against them with evil grins on their faces, HYJNIR smiles widely and takes his axe from his waist. LAWRENCE takes a deep breath.

LAWRENCE

Bad, huh?

BRASKA nods while turning towards HESTER.

BRASKA

Take LYRISSA and warn the villagers. We'll try to save the king. BRASKA moves his gaze to MIKLAS. You are coming with us.

HESTER

Let's go.

LYRISSA and HESTER runs towards the village followed by MIKLAS gaze.

MIKLAS

What if the village is attacked? There will be no one to protect them.

BRASKA closes his eyes in a moment of inner discussion.

BRASKA

We have no choice.

33 INT. LABYRINTH DARK SOL CHAMBER – DAY

NENTHYS bows before man dressed in a black armour wearing a skull like helmet and a wide dark blade at his waist,ZOOL. standing who is standing at the centre of the chamber looking at the dark sky through the broken ceiling.

NENTHYS

Master, in this labyrinth the ancient Dark Sol was sealed, from this chamber the the magician Melvyl gained the power of Dark Sol. Here Dark Sol was defeated by the three heroes. A short pause. I know not if his spirit lingers here. But you master might be able to summon him.

ZOOL closes his fist.

ZOOL

Well, I'll be sure to give it a try. You can join ALATHYS in the invasion of Thornwood.

NENTHYS bows even deeper.

NENTHYS

Yes master.

34 INT. CASTLE MAIN CHAMBER – DAY

BRASKA, HYJNIR, LAWRENCE and MIKLAS looking back at a corpse

littered corridor as the door closes in front of them. LAWRENCE sighs in relief.

LAWRENCE

Not as tough as they look, but there is a loot of them.

HYJNIR laughs.

BRASKA

We have to push forward, the KING may be in danger.

They all turn towards the exit of the monster free room, begins walking but stops as a darkness begins to gather before them. EMETHYS appears. EMETHYS points at BRASKA with a pale finger.

EMETHYS

The king is dead, soon will you be.

A bolt of lightning leaves EMETHYS's finger and strikes BRASKA. BRASKA grins taking a step back.

BRASKA

You puny one. What are you scheming?

EMETHYS laughs.

EMETHYS

To serve my master.

BRASKA runs towards EMETHYS with his blade held high, a awesome strike sends EMETHYS to the floor in serious pain.

BRASKA

Don't underestimate a lord of king GESTHAL's.

MIKLAS walks past BRASKA giving HYJNIR a tiny wave.

MIKLAS

Let's interrogate him.

The four of them walks up to EMETHYS who is trying to crawl away. HYJNIR closes his fist around the neck of EMETHYS and lifts him of the floor, then MIKLAS removes EMETHYS's hood. EMETHYS's face is pale, old, and has a tiny beard.

MIKLAS

Advisor Enne? To think you'll betray your king.

EMETHYS smiles excusing his pain.

BRASKA

Who are you serving?

EMETHYS is struggling to get some air, opens his mouth to speak.

EMETHYS

I'll never tell you. Master will save me.

As the last word leaves his lips a force snatches him from HYJNIR's grasp. A terrible force begins shaking the castle as ALATHYS and NENTHYS appears before the group, a moment after EMETHYS appears between them.

EMETHYS

See, my master looks over me and defends me with his hand.

NENTHYS draws a blue dagger from inside her robes.

EMETHYS

You'll die by his blade.

NENTHYS stabs EMETHYS in the side and EMETHYS sinks to the floor as blood begins to sip from his mouth.

ALATHYS

Master ZOOL is now lord of this land. Bow to him.

ALATHYS and NENTHYS disappears as EMETHYS corpse remains.

The king is dead. Killed by his own advisor.

HESTER
