    eek Mag-EvansCave: The Monster at the End of this Book

    Drilled into the side of Mt Enn, is a secret1 formidable fortress that used to be the base of the Nexus's most fabulous supervillain2. There were rooms and hallways full of terrible monsters and hideous half-breeds3 concocted through twisted experiments, ginormous statues made in the vain super-villain's image4, deathtraps5 at every corner to keep out unwanted visitors6, and enough fancy laser guns, and loyal robot minions patrolling everywhere7. Every so often, the heroes8 would break in, make threats, abscond with some loot or tech, and walk away from the inevitable explosion like the badasses they are.

    Not this time.

    This time the hero9 was handed the keys, given the passwords to the off-dimension bank accounts10, and notified which bedtime stories are the favourites of each fearsome monster11. The loyal robot minions already know and love her12. The deathtrap escape level has been reconfigured to Small Child, then reconfigured again to Very Small Child13.

    And then Magtok left the Nexus.

    Sunny did not take it well. But all good sulks14 must come to an end, and she is now, finally, ready to reopen the MagEvans Cave.15

    Enter at your own risk.



    1. The MagCave is a sort of public secret, like Area 41. It's a rather isolated locale, obsessively watched over and guarded by a quarter-mile of security cameras. It's simple enough to find if one knows where they're going, and nearly impossible to locate if you're looking for "That cave by those mountains somewhere, maybe at the bottom"
    2. At least according to at least 12 meter high trophies on that one really big shiny wall of trophies over there. Nobody is sure who actually awarded those...
    3. Don't call them hideous half-breeds. That's offensive. With the change in management, they are no longer required to disclose their race. Hideous creatures is the preferred epithet.
    4. They make excellent centrepieces for a child's indoor treehouse set.
    5. Moderately escapable.
    6. Not that they ever did.
    7. Unless it would get in the way of someone's plot.
    8. Or rival villains.
    9. Alleged.
    10. Not nearly all of them.
    11. They all like "The Monster at the End of This Book"
    12. Allegedly.
    13. Luke Evans Goodfellow insists that he is a Three-Quarterling, and very tall for his age.
    14. And boy can she sulk....
    15. Though it never really fully closed. The residents in the table below have had access all this time, and the Magbots have had a skeleton crew about the place while they all started taking accrued vacation days16.
    16. Even running on a skeleton crew, it will be years before accrued holiday leave, sick leave, mental health time, and so on, is properly applied for the Magbots.

    Wenomir comes up to the Cave. The last time he was here, he was attacking the place. But it was owned by someone quite different at the time. How things have changed.

    The warrior marches to the front door, assuming that he was noticed a long time ago.

    He probably was. But not by the Magbot who is kneeling near the door taking up the tulip bulbs for the winter. Once it does see Wenomir, it flings its hands in the air, dirt flying everywhere. "Don't shoot - stab - whatever! Definitely don't stab! Magtok isn't here!"

    Wenomir raises his hands in a conciliatory gesture.

    Magbot keeps its hands up. "Doorbot, open up! Open up, for the love of the gods! I've got a wife and kids!"

    "Oh you so totally do not," Doorbot argues back. "You're a big fat liar."

    Wenomir sighs heavily. The owner might have changed, but Magtok's spirit lives on in those damn contraptions.

    "That's what the heroes always say, but they don't always have the most expansive definition of 'anyone', do they?" Gardenbot says.

    "Gardenbot is right. 'Blowing down the doors' is a maxim for your ilk." Doorbot says.

    Suddenly the door opens. "Your elk? You have an elk? Can I see your elk?" Standing at the door is a young threequarterling looking up and up and up at Wenomir, then looking all around to try and find the fighter's mount.

    "Do I look like-"

    Before Wenomir has to admit the fact that he does look like someone wont to go on a decapitation spree first and ask questions later, he's confronted with a really small child. Right, Sunny and Carl had a child, didn't they? Wenomir's never met him, but he remembers that much. What was his name again? He goes down on one knee so as not to tower over Luke.

    "My ilk, not elk. It sounds similar, but it's not quite the same thing." He's not sure what an elk is, come to think of it. Some big swamp animal? "I'm here to talk to Sunny Evans. She's your mother, isn't she?"

    "Yes, Sir. Where's your ilk? Can I pet it?" Luke asks, reasonably enough.

    "Luke Evans Goodfellow stop talking to this horrible dungeon-crawler and run to your safe room! You know the rules!"

    "Aww, Doorbot! That's the Boring Room!"

    Before Doorbot can convince a very little boy who very much wants to meet an ilk to do something as dreadful as go to the Boring Room, Gardenbot snatches Luke up and uses him as a Human Three-Quarterling Shield.

    "See? I told you I had a son! You can't hurt me, or my dear, dear boy!"
    Far from being alarmed, Luke thinks this is jolly good fun, and a wonderful reprieve from Doing As He's Told.

    "My ilk isn't here, I'm afraid. I don't know why-"

    Then Luke is snatched up by the Gardenbot. Wenomir pinches the bridge of his nose. Riddle damn it. One thinks Sunny would have done something about them by now.

    "He's not your son. I know whose son he is. I've met them both. Now please let me talk to them. Or I'm going to stand here and complain for as long as it takes. I can do that."

    In the midst of this uproar, Sunny herself arrives at the massive entrance hall. "Can someone tell me -"

    "Evans! Evans! Adventurers are trying to loot the cave and capture our young to sell into slavery! I've been holding this one off! Hurry! Use the De-Personifier on him before it's too late!"
    Gardenbot yells, not-so-discreetly shifting Luke so that the whole 'human shield' thing isn't quite so blatant.

    "Hello, Sunny," Wenomir says, levelly. "What happened is that I came here to speak with you, and the doorkeepers went into panic mode. Don't know why, I'm not even armed. Then your son stumbled into the scene."

    Vestibule

    Sunny deftly snatches Luke away from Gardenbot. "Gardenbot, how many times do I have to tell you? There is No Such Thing as a Depersonification beam, and you are not allowed to greet visitors. Now go to your room."

    "Well there should be," Gardenbot sulks, and shuffles off.

    "No backtalk!"
    She balances Luke on her hip and turns to Wenomir. "Why don't we take this conversation inside?"

    "Lady Evans, I must protest! This man is a Known Threat who has wreaked havoc on this premises on other occasions!" Doorbot protests. "We have only his word that he's unarmed!"

    "He has two arms." Luke points out.

    "Yes, let's," Wenomir says. "Look... doorkeep. If I did want to attack the cave, this would be an incredibly stupid way to go about it. So why don't you listen to your employer?"

    Vestibule >> Sunny's Workshop

    Sunny doesn't reply to Doorbot, but as they walk down the corridor, Luke calls out, "Bye, Doorbot!"

    Her workshop is a clean, white space, with all the trappings of a modern computer engineering lab. There is a line of powered down Magbots near the back of the room who all clearly need work done.

    Sunny gestures to a free chair and sits down on another, while Luke sits in her lap and listens to Grownup Speak.

    "Are you well?"

    Wenomir considers what to say for a moment, before going for total honesty.

    "I'm not. Vigil fell, we lost several members, Kr is dead or missing, and I can't go looking for her because I'm needed to straighten out this mess. Which is what I'm here about."
