WildStar speculative script 2

This would be a series of cutscenes that would play alongside a quest in the now-defunct WildStar. Purely speculative. They’re meant to introduce the characters, their motivations, and make oblique references to the players following them around.

SCENE I

 

Title: Get Analyzed

Concept: The party enters the Analyzer Chamber.

Characters:

Solomon – Gerban Researcher

Ludovic – “Young” Kassian Noble

Karina – Mechari officer

FADE IN:

INT. ANALYZER CHAMBER – DAY

The party enters the chamber.

LUDOVIC

(to Solomon)

There is no one here. Are you sure you’re following–

Solomon hops in excitedly, and dashes for a
control panel at the far side of the room.

LUDOVIC

(to Karina)

What in in the Prime’s name is wrong with him?

KARINA

Machines excite him. It could cost him dearly, if he’s misled us to come here.

SOLOMON

I *have* been following your imbecilic uncle. He walked into this Analyzer chamber.

Solomon manipulates an unresponsive control panel. It beeps chidingly at him.

LUDOVIC

Exactly how are things analyzed here?

KARINA

Laser dissection. Eldan creations are -very- thorough.

LUDOVIC

Eldan creations are unnecessarily violent.

Ludovic glances at Karina for a moment.

LUDOVIC

Present company included.

KARINA

I’m just expeditious, as per my specifications. Your fear is approvingly noted, nonetheless.

Ludovic kneels to pick something up from the floor.

LUDOVIC

I just don’t want to get “analyzed”.

SOLOMON

Kassian fool! I am in complete control. Any moment now, I will have a veritable treasure-trove of data… Wait, what subroutine is this?

 

The control panel beeps decisively.

LUDOVIC

Solomon, is there any sign of my uncle *leaving* this room?…

The lasers’ lenses begin to glow. A hum fills the chamber.

SOLOMON

Cancel current task, you stupid, rusted-over contraption! CANCEL TASK!

Laser beams cut across the floor, slicing the control panel in half. It explodes, throwing Solomon back. Karina evades another of the beams. Ludovic protects himself with an Aetheric bubble-shield, deflecting a beam into a wall.

LUDOVIC

(Screaming)

Get behind me!

Karina dashes across the room, chased by lasers. She snatches Solomon from the ground and teleports with a spell back to take cover behind Ludovic’s bubble.

KARINA

We still need him. Our hirelings and I will disassemble these. Try not to get deconstructed.

LUDOVIC

(Still screaming)

I can’t keep this up forever!

Karina jumps on top of the bubble, bounces off of it. The lasers follow her as she closes in on their source.

FADE OUT.

SCENE II

 

Title: Family legacy

Concept: Ludovic and Karina discuss their mission
during an elevator ride.

Characters:

Ludovic – “Young” Kassian Noble

Karina – Mechari officer

 

FADE IN:

INT. ELDAN ELEVATOR INTERIOR – DAY

The elevator rises slowly. Ludovic, Solomon and Karina stand in it.

KARINA

Why are we looking for your uncle? You don’t intend to bring him to Dominion justice.

LUDOVIC

You want me to talk about this in front of the hired help?

KARINA

They’ve been hired to kill anything that stands in our way. I doubt they’re interested in gossip.

Ludovic walks to the elevator’s glass door, crossing his arms.

LUDOVIC

And you are? It’s just… complicated. If I don’t find my uncle, dead or alive, my family will lose everything.

KARINA

If dead is an option, bribing a magistrate to declare him so would be more efficient.

Ludovic glances over his shoulder at Karina.

LUDOVIC

Weren’t you created to enforce the law?

KARINA

I was created to serve the Eldan’s chosen. Dominion law is useful, but it’s far from absolute.

 

Ludovic turns around again while the elevator still rises.

LUDOVIC

We can’t afford to. We owe too much to too many people already… We need proof. I can’t go back empty-handed.

KARINA

So here you are instead, without retainers, or proper equipment, risking your own life to save your family’s social standing.

LUDOVIC

It’s the only choice we have.

KARINA

That may be true for your family, but it isn’t true for you.

LUDOVIC

If there is no other choice for my family, then there is no other choice for me. Understand?

The elevator arrives to its destination. Ludovic walk through the door.

KARINA

Perfectly.

Karina walks out after him.

FADE OUT.
