Where do we go, where do we go now? (Timeline thread)
04/25/2015 07:21 PM EST
Reference!
Anyway, so what of the timeline? With both timelines we have MK 1 - 4 but then we diverse. In timeline A we have Deadly Alliance wo revive Dragon King which causes armageddon. But what will happen now? Maybe in Mk 11, we will have Reiko and Havik becoming the Deadly Alliance who are trying to revive Shao Kahn? There are many loose threads in story but I think the question is "is that a good thing or a bad thing?" we king Kitana and Liu Kang, Queen and King of the netherrealm. Havik, I think, is King of thr Chaosrealm. Maybe we have a all out war between Raiden, Kang, Kotal, Havik, Hotaru and whoever is in control of Edina? Maybe Rain and Tanya are the kings and queens. So many different paths from here. the question is, which one do we go down?

Also, the title is referencing Guns and Roses.

Reiko, Noob Saibot and Havik should become worthy looming threats hidden within the Chaosrealm. They combine their magic to capture, free and "perfect" Smoke so he becomes a powerful sub-boss in this alternate timeline.

I support and expect this to happen.

I'm not overly educated in the whole timeline but I defintely see the Edenian plot line with Rain, Tanya and more being present. Followed by the trapped Revenants, Raiden, Liu Kang and Kitana, and Outworld and Kotal Kahn taking toll.
Not to mention my main interest, Shang Tsung... He will return. Almighty. I fear for characters in relation to him such as Ermac and Erron Black in their endings and what will occur with them.

Can the Chaosrealm have a king? I mean, the whole idea of a king is someone who governs and rules over others, but doesn't that go against Chaosrealm beliefs? Also, if Shang Tsung does come back, I really hope they'll actually let his shapeshifting ability play a part in the storyline? I mean, there's so much they could do with it. Manipulating the good (and the bad) guys from within their own ranks, turning friends against one another, making false alliances between enemies to cause their downfall... The possibilities are endless. Shang really got the short end of the stick in MK9, so yeah, he deserves more of a spotlight in the next one, should they go with Ermac's ending (or some other means) and revive him.

I know that many will find this very unlikely, but with all the setup for Kotal Kahn invoking new MK tournament against invading Raiden, we actually can finally get a protagonist who isn't from Earthrealm.

And I think that it can actually be,of all people, Li Mei. smile

Yes I'm is reaching far, but when you actually think about it that could actually work, if they can be brave enough for such a bold move and surprise us.

Yes, there wasn't anything interesting about her story-wise and now she is practically a blank state, which could actually be one of her strengths.

Imagine this:

She is recruited by Kotal , who recognized her fighting potential and she is given to Bo Rai Cho for training, who eventually shapes her into champion like he did with Liu Kang.
Li grows during the story mode along with well established characters and eventually defeats the main treat (Raiden?).

She is introduced wisely in MKX so that she wouldn't feel totally unfamiliar to people in next one and therefore would work better that completelly new character..

I think it would be very refreshing. What do you guys think?

Hopefully not Li Mei, but yeah, having Outworld be the good guys for once would definitely be pretty cool.

Well I would see Kotal hosting a Mortal Kombat tournament in Outworld.

Raiden takes the four young fighters to compete. However, something goes wrong deep down in the thunder god's soul and what's affecting his personality. The corrupted jinsei takes toll as it grows bit by bit.

Liu Kang and Kitana's kid shows up from the future, competing in Kotal's tournament. He's not fighting for any of the realms, but for his own time to change.

Ermac's souls being drained by Shang Tsung can be the perfect opportunity to bring King Jerrod within Ermac and explain more about Erron Black.

There's also Reptile, if he ever gets his own chapter, he needs his fallen realm & race back to life!

From the antagonists I would imagine leading to a Deadly Alliance story:
- Shang Tsung
- Noob Saibot
- Raiden
&
- One of Onaga's acolytes: An alchemist, a new sorcerer who Shang allies with. (But he has his own goal in bringing the Dragon King back to life and reclaim Outworld)

Cameos:
- Havik
- Reiko
- Shujinko

I don't think were done with "Time Altering Events" just yet. The Shao Kahn achievement from story mode and the woman from Jade's ending say hello.

what would be cool is if Shang Tsung becomes the new hero of outworld against Raiden. Raiden would make a pact with the Netherrealm, just as Shao Kahn did in MK9, Kotal Kahn would need outworlds best fighters to defend realm. Goro, Shan, D Vorah, Ferra Torr, (hopefully Motoro and Kintaro, i know its wishful thinking) vs Earth's Champion. It could be a way to kill of the kids and get this thing back on track.

I do not want rehashes. I would rather have the game move on and not repeat themes and ideas from 5-7

I don't think the kombat kids would fight for dark Raiden tbh, I think they'd know he was out of control. Honestly I see them hiding out in Outworld helping Kotal however they can. I do see Scorpion and the Shirai Ryu fighting for Raiden considering Scorpion's ending. Raiden would have to find a new "Champion" too, someone from Earthrealm, hell maybe it could be Kano's son haha. Edit: ooooh or Shujinko or Shang Tsung idk I feel like they would fight for him. Shang wants a powerful boss because he's a coward underneath his smugness, and the MK tournament would give him long life again. And Shujinko could go down the "deception" route again, maybe with Raiden doing the manipulating this time.

I can see the next game's story starting out with The Kombat Kids fighting off Netherrealm and Outworld forces thinking that they are the good guys but halfway through the story (about the time that... Kitana is brutally killed by Raiden) they find out that Raiden is the actual bad guy and spend most of the time trying to find a way to beat him.

The story ends with either a purified Raiden or a dead Raiden and 2 dead kiddos with the other two standing there when Mr Dragon King returns with a newly resurrected Mortal Kombat 9 and 10 and 11 dead guys and girls.

MK12 is a massive clusterfuck where Shao Kahn wins in the end.

What if Shang Tsung comes back next game as Ermac. After draining all the souls, he leaves Ermac's body in the catacombs and assumes his identity. Meanwhile there is a split between the Earthrealmers, after they attack Outworld, only to learn Raiden is off the deep end. Jaqui, Takeda,Cassie, Scorpion and Sonya agree to help Raiden. Fujin, Bo' Rai' Cho and Kung Jin do not agree, and are forced to flee to help Outworld, where Bo recruits Li Mei.

It would be a three way war, Earthrealm, Outworld, and Netherrealm facing off.

Raiden assumes control of Outworld and Kotal and Co are forced to flee into hiding. Kano and the Black Dragon join forces with Raiden. Raiden then pressures Sub-Zero to pick a side or die. This forces Sub-Zero and Frost to flee to Outworld, where they (once again) discover the tomb of Cryomancers.

Netherrealm is holding it's own against Raiden, as Liu Kang and Kitana use the revenants to fight for them. Kano gets Sonya killed which spurs the Kombat Kids to come their senses. The three turn on Raiden and help Kotal, Fujin, Reptile, Takeda, Bo, Li Mei, and Kung Jin.

Shang Tsung uses his powers to bring back Smoke and recruits Erron Black, D'vorah,, Noob, to help Raiden defeat Liu Kang's forces.

Kotal and company attack Raiden as he is about to deal the killing blow to Liu Kang. Shang Tsung steals Kangs soul, as chaos ensues. Noob defeats Kitana and claims Netherrealm. Raiden nearly kills Fujin. Kung Jin defeats Raiden, as Sub and the others fend off the Black Dragon and the Outworld supporters of Raiden (new characters), and the revenants. Shang Tsung reveals himself and kills Raiden taking his God powers, and preventing him from reforming. He helps Noob take control and they form the "new Deadly Alliance," with Havik being a supporter of theirs. cue MK12.

I really like the idea of noob and Shang forming a new deadly alliance in the next game. It's not that at fetched both are scheming arseholes and both are certainties to return in the next game.

Perhaps that soulnado in mk9 threw noob back into out world from earth realm where the essence or spirit of Shang called to him and together they planned to lure ermac to that cave where Shang took all of his souls hence reviving himself (just like ermacs MKX ending). Then noob and Shang team up set up a war between earth realm, outworld and netherealm then come in at the end to pick up the pieces!
