In my travels of the many possible futures, I discovered another place much like Rustbolt, but different. In this other time and place, very little is alive, everything is machines.
They are all gone. King Mechagon won, he activated the Mechoriginator.
Everyone is gone.
> What happened here?
A hologram of King Mechagon appeared in the middle of Rustbolt declaring victory. Then he activated the Mechoriginator.
There was a large blast... fire and panic everywhere!
Most of us were O.K, but those without mechanization were not so lucky.
> Did it reverse the Curse of Flesh?
I believe his research was corrupted, his device flawed. It didn't reverse the curse of flesh as Mechagon planned.
It ignited the skies and burn the flesh of most every living thing. Those of us mechanized enough survived.
> Where is Prince Erazmin?
Clockwork Giants and spiders began attacking Rustbolt soon after the attack. We all fought the bots till our gears gave out.
My legs broke and I was unable to protect Prince Erazmin. He was taken prisoner.
I think King Mechagon wanted him alive.
