%AMB% a busy pub. chatter, glasses, music

Whisperwind (slightly drunk): "Comrades … COMRADES! May I have your attention please. I would like to bring out a toast. May all human knowledge be free, and may Ironforge become great again! To the opposition, and our allies. Cheers!"

Everyone: "Cheers!"

%SND% everyone clunks their glasses and beersteins together

Patron1: "Alright, Whisperwind, now you gotta share the story, what made this such a great day for us?"

Whisperwind: "Were you not at the execution this afternoon?"

Patron2: "Some of us still have to work to earn a living, you know?"

%SND% everybody laughs

Whisperwind: "Fair enough, fair enough. With today's execution, we killed two birds with one stone!"

Patron2: "I thought she was a pig!"

%SND% everybody laughs

Whisperwind: "Yes, and she was the most important informant for the Institute in this town. They are now officially deaf AND blind!"

%SND% everybody cheers

Whisperwind: "But what is even more remarkable … I got the lady to do the deed herself. In person!"

%SND% everybody is impressed

Whisperwind: "*laughs* I've finally managed to convince her that the gun is the only thing that keeps her in power. She's all in. I just started a little operation, that will hit the leaders of the Institute where it hurts them the most. I can't tell you the details, but these guys are so deeply ingrained in their own ideals about peace and pacifism, they don't even have guards on their city wall. You could just walk in, and then do whatever you want. Like … let's say … kidnap their children. And then walk out again. And nothing's gonna stop you! Can you believe that?"

%SND% everybody laughs and cheers

Whisperwind: "That means, we will soon have exclusive access to the blueprints to create our own human weapons! The forge is fired up!"

%SND% everybody cheers

Whisperwind: "In just a few days, I will be the Lord of Ironforge! With our new weapons, we will be the superior power of all the lands! We will crush the Institute, we will conquer the holy mountain, and we will unite the lands under our rulership, and THIS, my friends, THIS CITY will be the new capital of the world! THE OPPOSITION WILL MAKE IRONFORGE GREAT AGAIN!"

%SND% everybody cheers

Whisperwind: "What a time to be alive! Innkeeper! Drinks! Drinks for everyone!"

Patron3: "Hip Hip!"

Everyone: "Hooray!"

Patron3: "Whisperwind!"

Everyone: "Hooray!"

Patron3: "Ironforge!"

Everyone: "Hooray!"

%AMB% AMB-3301 - Palace at Night

%ACT% Goldeneyes sits at her desk, wrapped in a blanket, unkempt and without her makeup on. She wears a bandage around her left arm. On her desk sits a GIANT cup of tea. The teacup says "keep smiling" and has a smiley face on it. There is some steam coming from the tea cup. Goldeneyes has a quill in her hand, and some paper in front of her.

%ACT% While the following happens, Potami appears through a secret passage behind Goldeneyes without being noticed, and slowly tiptoes up to her.

%ACT% Goldeneyes writes on the paper

Goldeneyes (to herself): "Dear Mom, I'm sorry you couldn't make it to our wedding on such short notice, but I hope that …"

%MUS% MUS-3301 - Dear Mom

%ACT% Goldeneyes hesitates

Goldeneyes: "Ah, screw it. I'm not sorry, and she knows it."

%ACT% Goldeneyes crumples the piece of paper and throws it away

%SND% SND-3301 - Crumple 1

Goldeneyes: "Dear Mom. I am so glad you were not at my wedding today, because someone almost killed me."

%ACT% Goldeneyes hesitates

Goldeneyes: "No. That's going to scare her to death."

%ACT% Goldeneyes crumples the piece of paper and throws it away

%SND% SND-3302 - Crumple 2

Goldeneyes: "Dear Mom. I wish you were here right now, because this is my wedding night, and my bloody new husband is not."

%ACT% Goldeneyes headdesks

Goldeneyes: "No. No no no. Too honest. Way too honest. Damn, why is this so hard?"

%ACT% Goldeneyes crumples the piece of paper and throws it away

%SND% SND-3303 - Crumple 3

%MIX% Tani: ON

%ACT% Goldeneyes blows the steam off the giant cup of tea

%ACT% Goldeneyes takes the giant cup of tea, and takes a sip

%SND% SND-3304 - Sluuuuuurp

%ACT% Potami appears from below at [2] and points the gun at Goldeneyes from behind

Potami (softly): "Hello, Princess!"

%MUS% MUS-3302 - Surprise

%ACT% Goldeneyes does a classic spit take and coughs

%SND% SND-3305 - Splatter

%ACT% Goldeneyes jumps up, throws the blanket off her, and turns around

Goldeneyes: "BY THE GODS!"

Potami: "Please, not so loud. We're in enough trouble as it is, and yelling will just make it worse."

Goldeneyes (frightened): "Are you going to kill me now?"

Potami: "In cold blood? Like you killed my mother?"

Goldeneyes (trembling): "Oh, that wasn't cold blooded, believe me. It was the worst thing I ever did in my life. They told me I had to give people a taste of my power. I didn't want to, but they insisted. I drank myself senseless until I thought I was ready to do it. I had the gun. I thought it would be easy. Just pull the trigger, and be done with it. But it wasn't that easy. Not at all."

Potami: "You can't imagine how much I've been waiting for this chance. So many sleepless nights filled with thoughts about killing you. But you know what?"

%ACT% Potami un-cocks the gun

Potami: "I changed my mind."

%MUS% MUS-3303 - Changing Minds

%ACT% Potami turns around the gun, and offers it to Goldeneyes

Potami: "Here. Take the gun. I don't want it anymore."

%ACT% Goldeneyes ignores the gun, but breathes a sigh of relief

Goldeneyes: "Does that mean you forgive me?"

%ACT% Potami lowers the gun

Potami: "No. I will never be able to forgive you. But hate is a treacherous guide. It turns you into a beast, sweet revenge dangling in front of you like a carrot held by whoever rides your back."

Goldeneyes: "If you didn't come for revenge … why are you here?"

Potami: "To make right what I did wrong. To save many lives, including your own. And to save Ironforge, my home. And if you have just a shred of good left in you, you'll help me."

Goldeneyes: "You're very brave. And well spoken."

Potami: "I practiced my speech the entire way from the Cat House."

Goldeneyes: "The Cat House?"

Potami: "Yes. The Cat House. Whisperwind is not on your side. It was him who gave me the bullets to shoot you. He knew I was ready to do it. 'We have a common enemy' were his exact words."

%MUS% MUS-3304 - The sad truth

Goldeneyes: "That can't be true!"

Potami: "I swear it is. From the very beginning, he was planning to get rid of you as soon as he's the new Lord of Ironforge. But it didn't work out, and he is on his way here right now to personally make sure his face will be the last you'll ever see."

Goldeneyes: "And how are you supposed to know about all this?"

%MIX% Jyanon: ON

Potami: "Because I was there when he confessed it to his favorite whore."

Goldeneyes: "YOU'RE LYING!"

%ACT% Greenfield bolts in [7], then bolts the door.

%SND% SND-3306 - Door
%MUS% MUS-3305 - The sad truth

Greenfield (out of breath): "My Lady, my Lady! The Lord just ordered the officer of the guard to take you into custody! I locked all the doors, but that's not going to stop them for long. You must flee while you still can!"

%ACT% Greenfield looks at Potami

Greenfield (dumbfounded): "And how on earth did you get in here?"

Potami: "This building has more holes in it than a piece of Coldlake cheese. And my mother knew them all."

%ACT% Greenfields runs for the door, and locks it, then runs back

%SND% SND-3307 - Door Lock

Goldeneyes (angry): "Whisperwind, you son of a whore …"

Greenfield: "I never trusted him."

Goldeneyes: "And I wish I had listened to you earlier. Is there anyone else left on our side?"

%SND% SND-3308 - Crashing noise, a door being broken down.

Greenfield: "Unlikely. He's the Lord now. No one will dare disobey him."

Goldeneyes (hopeless): "That means we're lost."

Potami: "No we're not! There are still a few friends around who will fight with us, and you are going to lead us there!"

Goldeneyes: "Who, me? How?"

%SND% SND-3312 - pounding at the door

Goldeneyes: "But this will be your end! You know you don't have to do this!"

%MUS% MUS-3307 - I'm not smallfield

Greenfield: "Maybe, but I'm not a Smallfield, I am a Greenfield, my Lady! My decision stands."

%SND% SND-3313 - Increasing Pounding

Goldeneyes (whispering): "Greenfield, you're the most honorable man I have ever met. I will make sure your name will always be remembered."

Potami: "Stop talking and follow me!"

Goldeneyes: "Alright, alright!"

%ACT% Potami runs off to [2], Goldeneyes follows her
