Couples used to walk the Sundown Path. Kid ain't here for pleasure, though. But then, somebody gets to the Core before the Kid. Floor starts giving way under the lightest step. A single panicked Squirt could bring the while place down. Fragments of the old world rain from the sky. Stray valuables are lying everywhere. Kid thinks twice about risking his hide for them, though. Well, the Path ain't exactly open to visitors no more. See, the Path was intended for leisurely strolling and such. Sky Bridges linked the Path together. One of them Bridges whips the Kid along. Air travel always was an iffy proposition. Quick and careful's the only way to go. The Calamity changed everything, even where the wind blows. Well, if we mastered the winds in the old days, we can do it again. But the question is, who else could have taken the Core?
Well, ain't no survivor stole the thing. Scumbag ate it by mistake. Tough break, unlike the Kid, that Core ain't coming back. Know they used to ship live munitions down the path? Fine time to find them. He's wise to toss those things plenty far away. Even Gasfellas need some shut-eye from time to time. They get real cranky when you wake them up. In all his toil, Kid keeps coming back to an overwhelming question, who else could have survived the Calamity?
