Book 2: The Teraport Wars
Part II: Filling the Tub of Happiness


Narrator:Lieutenant 'Elf' Foxworthy returns from the surface...
Elf:I got the contract. We're gonna get paid by the 'bugs' to start and finish a gang war.
Petey:Were there any problems?
Elf:The naive little snots tried to tell me that hiring mercenaries to take out their rivals would be cheating.
Petey:Naive indeed.
Elf:I mean, if nobody cheats, who will the mercenaries of the universe work for?
Schlock:That would be so unfair.
Narrator:On the surface, In downtown chuba...
Scab:She was totally hot.
Chuba Gangmember1:Chuk, man, I still can't believe you're gonna pay them to wipe the nags.
Chuk:You heard her. They need the money, and if we won't hire them, then nags might.Besides, We've got money. It's just like buyin' a better gun, only you get the hand to hold it, too.
Chuk:See? Scab agrees with me.
Scab:Totally, totally hot.
Chuk:Anyway, the nags are goin' down. I bet scab's new mercenary girlfriend could take them all on herself.
Scab:Hot, man.
Narrator:Across town, the nags meet.
Phil:Yo, Gig! Them chuba bugs is callin' us out!
Gig:Chill, phil.
Gig:The bugs may think they're tough, but I hired us some military assistance...Mercenaries.
Narrator:The game is more interesting when everybody cheats.
