Plot

 
Plumbers' Academy
November 9, 2012, 4:16 PM EST

[Zon is walking down the hall when Paper comes from another hallway, turns the corner, and begins to walk next to him.]

[Paper]: Hey Zon...

[Zon is silent for a moment.]

[Paper]: Zon?

[Zon]: Oh, hey Paper...

[Paper]: Are you okay?

[Zon]: Yeah...

[Paper]: It's just that lately you've been acting suspicious...

[Zon stops in place.]

[Zon]: Okay, I'll tell you, but only you...

[Paper]: What happened?

[Zon]: About three weeks ago, some kid came to the Academy. He called himself the Ringmaster and he had two rings on his hand... I guess I have to tell you that I found this ring over the summer...

[He takes out the Ring of Fire.]

[Zon]: Jack, Ben, and I found this... Brian found one, too, and there's a fifth one out there... He's been searching for them... The Ringmaster that is...

[Paper]: There was an attack that we didn't know about?

[Zon]: Hey, quiet down. We can talk on the way...

[Paper]: The way where?

[Zon]: The way to the Magisters...

[They walk off as Rob and Aevan come out from around the corner.]

AftermathPanel1

[Rob]: What did he say?

[Aevan]: Something about rings and their master...

[Rob]: Secrets that we don't know about...

[Aevan]: So... there are probably a lot of thing we don't know about...

[Rob]: Well that is a lot too many... We've got to figure this out...

[Aevan]: Can't we just ask... Besides, if it's really important they'll tell us...

[Rob]: Yeah, but I want to practice my stealth skills... We haven't had many of these missions in a while...

AftermathPanel2

[The next page shows Paper and Zon arriving at the Magisters office.]

[Zon]: Hornbok...

[Hornbok, walking out with Kruto]: Yeah?

[Zon]: We have a bit of a problem...

[Hornbok]: What's wrong?

[Zon]: A few weeks ago there was a breach at the academy and this guy named the Ringmaster attacked me, Brian, Jack, and Ben. He wanted this...

[He holds out the ring.]

[Paper]: Apparently Brian has one, too...

[Kruto]: I've never seen anything like this before... And this was on Earth...

[Zon]: Yes, now, the Ringmaster had two more rings, but he claimed that he needed to find the fifth. All I want you to do is search for it...

[Hornbok]: I think we'll be able to do that...

[Paper]: Thanks... we'll stop by later to check...

[Paper and Zon leave.]

AftermathPanel3

[Kruto]: These recruits keep getting into weirder and weirder things... At least we had heard of the prophecy even if we didn't know anything about it...

[Hornbok]: Well, let's take a look at this...

[He goes to a computer and looks up "ringmaster's rings." There are some search results but very few seem credible. He clicks on one and gets taken to a news article about the Ringmaster being spotted on an alien planet showing off his Ring of Air.]

[Hornbok]: He was seen a few months ago when he found the Ring of Air... Looks like he already has the Ring of Earth in this photo...

[Kruto]: So it's Fire, Water, Air, Earth and...?

[Hornbok]: Energy, that must be the missing one...

[Kruto]: Well, we can find it, right?

[Hornbok]: Definitely... It's not even hard...

AftermathPanel4

[Paper and Zon are walking back down the hallway towards the barracks when Rob and Aevan approach them.]

[Zon]: Hey guys...

[Rob]: Why were you at the Magisters office?

[Paper]: That's private...

[Rob]: I knew it, you are hiding something!

[Zon]: What...?

[Rob]: What are you hiding? Tell me!

[Rob clenches his fists.]

[Paper]: It's nothing to be worried about. The Magisters already took care of it...

[Rob]: I think I have a right to know...

[Aevan]: Rob, I told you that you don't have to do this!

[Rob]: Just tell me...

[Zon]: I don't have to!

[Rob jumps at Zon but Brian comes from out of nowhere and knocks him back. He separates the two groups.]

AftermathPanel5

[Brian]: WOAH! Calm down... We can finish this very quickly...

[Brian takes out the ring.]

[Brian]: They were showing the Magisters one of these. Zon found a red one that controls fire. This one controls water, and a few weeks ago a kid named the Ringmaster came here and had two more that controlled Earth and Air... There is one more out there that controls energy... That is what you told them, right?

[Zon]: You're lucky it is... heh heh...

[Aevan]: So the Magisters took care of it?

[Paper]: They are right now...

[Rob]: It's good to know that... Now I don't feel like secrets are being kept from us...

[Paper]: Now we just have to tell the others...

[Paper, Zon, Aevan, Rob, and Brian are meeting with the two Magisters.]

[Brian]: So what did you find out?

[Kruto]: The rings are obviously of alien origin, which means they may be harder to track...

[Hornbok]: We'll still be able to, it will just take longer...

[Zon]: Any history behind them?

[Kruto]: Nothing... but we're still looking... Ivada said he thought he had heard of them before, so he's going to head to Trafania to ask his the elders of his village...

[Paper]: And we're all set to tell the others...

[Hornbok]: Tell them whatever you want to tell them...

[The next page shows all the recruits standing in a line. Paper, Zon, Brian, Aevan, and Rob walk out in front and then turn and face the recruits.]

AftermathPanel7

[Aevan]: We have a bit of an announcement to make...

[Brian]: This past summer, I found this ring in my hometown of Sigara.

[Zon]: And I found this ring in my hometown of Center City.

[They each hold out their rings.]

[Brian]: While you may not have found out about this, a few weeks ago, a child came to the Academy looking for these two rings...

[Paper]: He was already in possession of two other rings and claimed that with these two, there would only be one he didn't have...

[Rob]: The Magisters are working on locating the last ring, but in the mean time, we will need to be prepared for anything! The Ringmaster will return to try and get the rings, so we have to be ready!

[Aevan]: ...Thank you.

[The 5 recruits walk off.]

[Paper]: Could it possibly have anything to do with the Elite?

[Zon]: I doubt it, and I'm actually really surprised we didn't hear anything about them this whole year so far...

[Brian]: If I know the Elite, we will hear from them soon. Just as we'll be ready for the Ringmaster, we have to be ready for the Elite...

[The last panel shows the 5 recruits walking away from the hallway where they talked to the others.]

[The End]
