Deception TV Series
10/13/2015 08:54 AM EDT
Hi there, I found this thing that I wrote up around about the time Armageddon was released and thought I might as well upload it here to show you guys for the hell of it, since it was obviously intended for this site back when I wrote it. Back then I thought it would be a cool idea to have a TV series based around Shujinko's adventure in Deception, since his quest crossed over with the storyline of so many characters (a whole show about Shujinko? Ugh). I wrote episode summaries for 5 entire seasons. I removed a lot of storylines, added in some unrelated ones and changed or made up a lot of others. For example, there is only one Sub-Zero and Noob is a separate character. I also compressed Shujinko's story, so he doesn't age much throughout it. Scorpion and Sub-Zero have of course been given a lot more focus than they had in Shujinko's story. Having said all that, it's quite canonical despite the false chronology and Shujinko being forced into all of the events. Anyway, it's a long read, hopefully someone else finds it as amusing as I did...

E01 Damashi:

Open with the story of the One Being. Shujinko and his dreams of being an MK champion are introduced. Bo Rai Cho trains Shujinko but says he is not ready to venture outside of the village walls. The village is invaded and held captive by the Shirai Ryu and Shujinko's parents are killed (For ultimate dramatic effect). Damashi visits an emotionally wounded Shujinko and grants him the power to absorb the abilities of other fighters. Shujinko defeats the Shirai Ryu and saves the village and Bo Rai Cho decides that Shujinko is now ready to venture outside of the village. Damashi informs Shujinko that he has been chosen as Champion of the Elder Gods and sends him on a quest to gather the six Kamidogus.

E02 Lin Kuei:
Shujinko adjusts to the outside world and spends many years training with Bo Rai Cho.
Damashi learns that the Lin Kuei also seek the Kamidogu and may have located it, so he instructs Shujinko to use Bo Rai Cho's warrior medallion in order to capture their attention and join their ranks. Shujinko steals the medallion and finds the Lin Kuei temple. A battle ensues with Sub-Zero.

E03 Scorpion:
Having joined the Lin Kuei, Sub-Zero trains Shujinko, who impresses the clan with his ability to emulate Sub-Zero's ice powers. The Lin Kuei are contracted to steal a map from the Shaolin temple. Shujinko is conflicted, but remembers that he is ultimately serving the Elder Gods. At the temple, the Lin Kuei encounter Scorpion, who is killed by Sub-Zero.

E04 Temple of Elements:
Quan Chi destroys the rival Shirai Ryu clan as payment for the map. He again enlists the Lin Kuei, this time to retrieve the amulet from the Temple of Elements. Shujinko and Sub-Zero battle their way through the temple, defeating the amulet's protector, Fujin, and retrieving the item for Quan Chi. The Lin Kuei reports that they have located the Kamidogu.

E05 Red Dragon:
The Lin Kuei secure the cave in which the Kamidogu resides, but the Red Dragon clan have been tipped off as to it's whereabouts. The Red Dragon and Lin Kuei battle for posession of the Kamidogu and Hsu Hao is killed. Instantly and horrifically. Sub-Zero instructs Shujinko to escape with the Kamidogu. Shujinko steals the Kamidogu and uses it to open a portal to the Nexus, as instructed by Damashi.

E06 The Netherrealm:
Damashi explains the Nexus and Shujinko opens a portal to the Netherrealm. Shujinko tries to adjust to the realm and to the realisation that all of the myths were true. Shujinko is attacked and captured by Netherrealm denizens, led by Sareena, before being rescued by Ashrah.

E07 Demon Slayer:
Ashrah explains the story of her heavenly kriss sword and the pair work together to hunt down and slay demons. Among these demons are Sareena and Reiko. Ashrah learns that Shao Kahn has sent an assassin to kill her for murdering his Netherrealm allies. Shujinko parts ways with Ashrah to continue his search for the Kamidogu.

E08 Soul Stone:
Shujinko discovers Ermac near death in the Netherrealm wastelands. Ermac explains his origins and informs him that he needs to find a soul stone in order to maintain the magic bond which keeps him together. Shujinko finds the soul stone and carries Ermac to it, where he replenishes his energy. The two are discovered by Ashrah and a fight ensues. Ashrah slays Ermac and ascends from the Netherrealm. The soul stone is destroyed in the battle and Shujinko retrieves the Kamidogu from within. Shujinko travels to the Chaosrealm.

E01 The Brotherhood of Shadows:

In the Chaosrealm, Shujinko meets Havik and aids him in a battle against the Brotherhood of Shadows who have asserted control over a cemetery and the souls within. Havik explains the ways of chaos and that the Brotherhood of Shadows is in violation of their way of life.

E02 Chaos:
Havik, impressed by Shujinko, enlists his help in also freeing the sacred water supply from the control of Seido. Shujinko learns about the ongoing battle between the realms of Order and Chaos.

E03 Labyrinth:
In gratitude, Havik informs Shujinko of the whereabouts of the Chaos Kamidogu. Shujinko braves the Labyrinth, battling chaos denizens and finds the Kamidogu.

E04 Outworld:
Shujinko enters Outworld. He saves a civilian and interferes with the affairs of the emperor, which attracts the attention of Reptile. When Reptile is defeated, Shujinko asks to see the man in charge. (I figure that since Outworld is such a large part of MK, it needed a few episodes to introduce it and it's denizens).

E05 Shao Kahn:
Shujinko informs Kahn of the Kamidogu and his service to the Elder Gods. This intrigues the Emperor. Kahn tells Shujinko about the city of Lei Chen, whose Overlord has been resisting his cause. He claims that the city has information about an artefact matching the description of the Kamidogu. Shujinko heads for Lei Chen and Kahn orders Reptile to pursue Shujinko in secret.

E06 Mileena:
Stationed outside Lei Chen is Mileena and her troop of tarkatan warriors, who are plotting to invade the city and overthrow the Overlord, Zeffeero. After initially displaying hostility towards Shujinko, Mileena later enlists him as a messenger to negotiate a deal with the Overlord. When Zeffeero refuses to give up his own life to save his people, he instead tells Shujinko of the Kamidogu's location and asks him to take it to Seido and trade it for the assistance of the Seidan guardsmen.

E07 The Living Forest:
Shujinko braves the Living Forest where he discovers the Kamidogu. Reptile makes his presence known and attempts to steal the Kamidogu. Shujinko kills Reptile. Damashi reminds Shujinko of his quest and tells him that he cannot use the Kamidogu as a bargaining chip.

E08 Order:
Shujinko heads to the Realm of Order to enlist the help of the Seidan Guard. In lieu of a bargaining chip, Shujinko offers Hotaru control of the city in return for his assistance in Lei Chen. Shujinko trains with the Seidan guard in preparation for the mission.

E09 Overlord:
The Seidan guard arrive in Outworld and impose their dominance over Lei Chen. Zeffeero objects to the takeover and is killed by Hotaru. The tarkatans attack and meet the heavy resistance of the Seidan guard. Shujinko is captured by the tarkatans.

E10 Baraka:
Shujinko is held captive at the tarkatan camp by Baraka. The tarkatan horde continues to battle with the Seidan guard until the tarkatans are forced to withdraw. Eventually, Shujinko is able to escape capture and Mileena and Baraka are killed. Damashi informs Shujinko that the MK tournament will soon begin and the Elder Gods are granting him the chance to participate.

E01 The Blind Swordsman:

Back in Earthrealm, Shujinko meets Kenshi at the tournament auditions, who explains the story of Sento and his hatred for Shang Tsung. Shujinko and Kenshi train and practice together.

Damashi then informs Shujinko that he cannot fight in the MK tournament and must return to the Netherrealm to regain the evil taint as it is essential to his quest.

E04 The Festival Of Torture:
Shujinko returns to the Netherrealm.
(Some story possibly involving the Brotherhood of Shadow and maybe Shinnok.
We need some time to pass here while MK1-4 occur, so there's a montage of Shujinko travelling through Netherrealm, acquiring an evil taint).

E05 Vengeance:
Shujinko encounters Scorpion in the 5th Plane of the Netherrealm. A battle ensues but eventually Scorpion decides to let Shujinko help him track Quan Chi. Scorpion explains his backstory. They find and attack the sorcerer but he is able to escape.
