The game, Wolfenstein Never Ending was never made. But here is the story and the outline of the game as tribute. If you think this is a long read, read the shorter version. But think about how long it took me to write and edit this whole document, plus the short version!
If you want to listen to some of the soundtrack of TLR or this game, just give me a shout at my forum or email. The music is pretty good!
Whether you have realized or not, a lot of this game is based on The Last Remnant. It is an epic game, in my opinion, and horribly underrated. It just did not get a lot of media coverage, and I don’t know why. It was made by the same company that brought people Final Fantasy and Kingdom of Hearts… The game’s strengths? Art direction, KICKASS MUSIC, and extremely unique combat system. I’d buy the game for the music alone, even if hated the game.
At any rate, the story in this game is not a replica of The Last Remnant, rest easy. The story had elements taken from Wolf3d, Sod, RTCW, Wolfenstein, TLR (The Last Remnant), and my imagination. I combined many things, and had to change the story a lot to make things fit. This story is made to honor TLR and Wolf3d, to provide enjoyment to readers, and hopefully get people to mod Wolf3d. Ok, enough BS. Let’s get down to business. The weird looking words above a paragraph mean the song being played during a battle or cut scene. From some points in the game, the game ends a chapter or part, and the world map is shown, showing the areas BJ has beaten now. The song “The Known World” is played.
The story to end all stories. The power of remnants cannot be denied. The good is no longer only good, and the bad is no longer only bad. Only the player can decide if bj is, after all, the savior…
Opening Suite – The Assault
A cut scene is played, showing BJ running away from Nazis in one area, since he got overpowered. He runs to another part of the Nazi Base, to retrieve documents. The words, Wolfenstein Never Ending pop up, as cool as can be, when the time is right, and the player is suddenly given control afterwards. BJ escapes and reports back to authority. The next day, BJ gets a new assignment, and this time, many people think this would be BJ’s last. The mission involves infiltrating Castle Wolfenstein, retrieving documents that may or may not prove the existence of a mutant operation running by a diabolical man known as Dr. Schabbs. You are then to eliminate the threat, and take care of a chemical warfare. On your way to retrieve the documents, Hans is waiting for you. He is dispatched. BJ infiltrates Dr. Schabbs lab, and kills him. Along the way, he meets some new experiments that have been cooked up. Actually, some of the technology seems a bit too advanced, you tell yourself. How are Nazi reinforcements pouring in, seemingly endlessly? Why are Nazis armed with futuristic technology? You aim to find out. But orders are orders. You are to go stop the chemical warfare, and that’s what you need to do. You find and destroy Otto, Gretel, and Fatface, one after one, since they were all located in a conference room. Before leaving, you were ordered to retrieve documents left on the table of the discussion room. You do so. Back at the base, you find some disturbing news. The document says something about “Black Sun energy”, or whatnot, and mentions time travel. It seems obvious that this could be connected to Hitler’s ability to supply all bases with fresh troops in the front lines. What could be causing this? Well, nothing ends it all like going straight into kill Hitler, and that’s what you’ll do, right? Before going, a few things happen.
Something about that Guy
First, BJ goes to sleep, and he gets the dream where two mysterious figures popped up. One man in a white dress and a fan stands, talking to someone else. Then, somewhere else, a city is working normally. A seasoned female soldier stands deep inside the city, holding up a small flower, looking at it. CJ is seen, staring at this woman. Suddenly, the woman readies herself for battle.
“Get ready!” she says.
All a sudden, loud pounding is heard at the closed city gates. Two guards standing next to the gate panic.
“I don’t know, man! This is my first day on the job!”
“What do we do?”
The gigantic gates of the city get blown apart, as both guards get blown away and they instantly die. A fist is seen inside the gates. Apparently some man launched his hand into the gate and it blew up the premise. The hand turns around. The gate lifts. A man in crimson robes holds up the gigantic gate with one arm. He lifts it up. With a flick of his hand, the gates propel into the air, and fall onto the ground a few seconds later. This man is no ordinary man. Most soldiers dare not confront this man, and simply escort people into the cities. A voice is heard, “He’s a monster!” as a man knocks over a sign, running away. Deep inside the city, the female soldier drops the flower, and kisses her arm. She draws her sword and runs forward to the man in the crimson robes. Then, the man in the robes is seen, his left hand throwing back the head of a soldier, which is face-first in his palm. The man walks up to meet this woman. The man draws his sword. A swordfight begins. The woman is obviously a very skilled swordsman, and she tries her best. Despite her best efforts, she is fighting a losing battle. The man seems to play with the female soldier. His hits, when hitting the ground, cause a minor crater to form, to his powerful blows, yet he seems to be using no effort. The female soldier suddenly managed to hit the man. The man feels his face with his hand, and looks at his hand. There is a trace of blood. The man’s face hardens. The woman taunts the man. The man continues the swordfight. He seems to be hitting harder now. The woman struggles to keep up. Through a crafty and quick move, the woman managed to catch the man’s sword off guard, and quickly tries to slice the man’s neck. The man blocks the sword with two fingers, almost instantaneously. The woman stares in shock. The man punches the woman. The punch is so powerful, his hand got injected inside the woman. She is now fatally wounded. She staggers back, and collapses on the floor. The man then holds up his hand. A gigantic sword in the background of the city comes to life. The man seems to control the sword.
“The Valaria Heart…? Why you….!!! Ughh….”
The man looks at the women without saying anything. The gigantic sword (taller than the city) flies upward to the sky and launches itself next to the man on the ground. The dream shifts. The camera pans upwards and a body is seen. And it’s a corpse. And it’s the woman that got killed by that man. Someone yells out and grieves.
“Why??? I’ll kill that bastard myself! Emma!!!!!!!”
The dream ends as BJ quickly jolts up.
“Just a dream...” you tell yourself.
Reunited at Last/Family
As BJ gets up, he sees his brother, CJ. (I can't come up with a better name, LOL.) BJ continues to walk, and he walks to the air pilot, whose job is to land BJ near the area supposed to carry the Sod. They exchange some words. Apparently people think BJ’s skills are legendary, and even though it seems like he has a knack for not dying no matter how many times he got shot at, he just might die this time. BJ says, don’t worry, that's what you guys said would happen last time, blah, blah, blah.
“BJ! So nice you see you.”
“Likewise. It’s been so long…”
“Ready to kick some Nazi ***?”
“As always, as always.”
New Traditions, Old Methods
“Well, ain’t nothing like blowing stuff up… It’s been hard since dad died, though.”
“Let’s not think about that. Optimism is good.”
“The world is being sabotaged by Hitler, BJ.”
“Ha! And I’m going to end Hitler’s life! More reason to be optimistic!”
The City of Heroes
“I suppose so… But do you really have to be gone for so long?”
“What can I say, Nazi *** kicking takes time.”
“Well... if you ever need my help, I've got your back.”
“I am counting on it.”
“Yeah… well, you better report to the flight person. I’m sure he has got words to say before you embark.”
“BJ! It is an honor!”
“Let’s skip the formality, ok?”
“Yes, yes. Your resume is more impressive. OSA, huh? Interesting. I suppose we all have our own secrets.”
“This mission ain’t no cakewalk, BJ. You gotta capture that god darn Spear…”
“That is a mouthful…”
“Not only that, you must stop any developing weapons the Nazis may have on their sleeves, and finally, destroy Hitler for good.”
“Let’s take it home, then. You can start by flying me over there.”
“That’s the spirit. Now, you go and don’t come back dead, yes indeed!”
“That is an order I would gladly follow.”
During the flight, BJ looks out the plane. Cloudy night sky. He starts to get nervous about the upcoming mission, and starts to think about his dream. He begins to think about the man in crimson robes. He mouths the words, “It’s time to awaken.” seemingly absent minded. He turns around, and there the crimson man is. “Yes…It’s time to awaken! Remember your true self!” The man walks closer and closer to BJ. BJ starts to get scared. He runs over to the pilot, asking for help. The pilot looks back, and sees nobody. He thinks BJ has gone a bit coo-coo. BJ looks back. The man is gone.
The Conqueror’s Message
Somewhere, in some other world, a world flourishes. This is obviously another planet. “People” of different races exist; men with four hands, men who are huge, etc. Among this hustling and bustling, men trade and exchange words. All that suddenly comes to a stop. The man with the fan in BJ’s dream appears in the street. He holds his fan. Men depart like the Red Sea, scared of this man.
“The Conqueror’s force comes to show his fellowship to you all! His promise will be apparent to the world! We have the jurisdiction of the God Emperor. Move along! Seize the Ark!”
An army behind this mysterious man comes forward. Men run away. When the “Ark” is seized, the man with the fan chuckles.
He holds out his hand, and a blue flame erupts above his hand. He holds it out, and it expands into a gigantic inferno, lighting the whole city on fire. The man with the fan conjures up some pathway, and walks off.
“The seizing of the Ark is complete, my lord. The time to cross over is soon. Are you sure you want to meet him?”
Without an audible reply, the man walks off. An officer walks up to the man with the fan.
“Are you sure what you are doing is the right?”
“It is not my place to question these things. We are merely doing what the Remnants desire of us. Move along.”
BJ infiltrates the area holding the spear. He fights the original bosses of Sod. He then goes the holding area for the Sod. IT’S NOT THERE! Instead, there is a teleported. He touches it and is transported into Antarctica. He runs around, and eventually he discovers that Hitler hid the spear deep in ice. An Ubermutant is guarding it though. At the spear, BJ fights the Death Knight again. Eventually he gets the Spear and…. He is transported into part of the dimension of hell.
Accepting the Challenge
The AoD awaits.
“BJ, I have longed for this day. It is fated that I defeat you, this time around. Prove your worth, human!”
BJ beats him. And now, in order to end the war, he must beat Hitler. He throws the Sod into a river. But wait... what did the Angel of Death mean by “this time around”? Has all this happened before? It all seems oddly familiar, yet the answer is just out of his grasp, like a forgotten dream.
BJ makes his way toward the bunker. After some resistance, he enters. He finds that the bunker has been changed into a lab. Only this lab is special. BJ reads some of the reports. Black Sun energy is energy generated from Hell in another universe. The Nazis are using crystals from that dimension as power. In attempts to create some super soldier, people have been used as lab rats, subjected to large quantities of Black Sun energy. Some man named Deathshead is in charge of oversight for this program. BJ glances over at the pods, and one experiment breaks loose from his pod and attacks BJ. BJ destroys it, and keeps going. He goes deeper and deeper underground, past radioactive sewer sludge. He eventually finds a gigantic barrier. He disables it and goes past it.
After a while, he finds a giant door. He opens it and walks. WHAT? It’s outside? He is way down in the earth? How is this possible? Things get frantic as a gigantic soldier, the Ubersoldat, marches in. (Perhaps a super duper version of the Supersoldat from RTCW?) The soldier is big, but BJ is more awesome. He beats it. He continues down. BJ eventually finds Hitler, in this screwed up place that is outside while being inside the earth at the same time. BJ dispatches Hitler. Suddenly, the door way the man with the fan used to walk away from the city engulfed in flames, appears. Out comes the man with the fan.
Slipping Through Your fingers
“Who the hell are you?”
“I am Wagram, the king of the former empire of Glenys. I have observed you, BJ.”
“I bet you have. You have one minute to tell me your intentions before I blow you up. Hitler was not as fortunate.”
“Ahh… Hitler. His blatant disregard for the rules… his abuse of the power of Black Sun… has allowed me to come here. Hitler has tried this before… mind you. Why do you feel as if this has all happened? Because it has. He won the first time, against you, BJ. God had to step in and rewind time… Hitler took the world by storm.”
“Well, you see, there are things even God may not do. Hell keeps God in check… and I am the curator of Hell… The reverting of time allowed me to send an agent here to ensure that upon Hitler’s death, I may cross worlds…”
“Another world? Now you are talking crazy!”
“BJ, you still have a chance to live. I will spare your life. I will ensure a great existence for you… if you join my side. I am not at all the bad guy, mind you. It’s the perspective… each person has their own perspective…”
“Hitler had a perspective too; with his own jacked up perception of the world. What exactly do you want with the world? What do you want with me?!”
“BJ, the world has been abusing the power of Remnants for far too long. In my world, it led to the downfall of Glenys… and its unfortunate residents… Over here I see Hitler desperately using the power of the Spear of Destiny, one of the chief Remnants of all universes. This cannot be allowed.”
“Yes, BJ. Open your two little beady eyes and see your true crusader. I am here to punish this world for their sins. To that end, I shall provide. Another will soon come to ensure that Remnants will never fall into the hands of men… no longer, no longer…”
“What did you do to Hitler?”
“He is merely a result of an experiment… Unfortunately, it showed the negative consequences of our goals… Alas, one must make sacrifices to achieve their true goal.”
“You don’t decide who to experiment on, nor do you get to decide whether we sin or not!”
“Yes, I do.”
“Your confidence suggests that you have an ally. Who is it? That man in crimson robes, perhaps?”
“By now you should have received the response from God. Or lack, thereof.”
“No, “God” must be a good entity. He must be…”
“As I say, everything from perspective, son.”
“I’ll teach you not to call me son again!”
BJ gets angry and runs up to Wagram. Wagram restrains BJ in flames. CJ pops up, seemingly out of nowhere, and tries to rescue BJ. Wagram is too powerful for him, and he consumed CJ in flames. Wagram says that CJ is “just as naïve as David”. This actually doesn’t explain much. Wagram, seeing that BJ is so determined to stop Wagram, fights him. During the fight, it seems like Wagram was holding back. He seemingly changes his mind about fighting BJ and tells him to stay away from divine will. As Wagram leaves, BJ runs back to CJ and talks to him, and tries to revive him.
“BJ, listen to me. Lissss-ten…huhhhh….”
“Shut up and breathe!”
“The C-conquer-or… he m-must be stopped…”
“What? You’re speaking nonsense. You’re going to be fine, CJ.”
“I’m di-eing, BJ. I feel so cold…”
“When we get back, dinner’s on me, alright? Just work with me here.”
“B-J, take heed on my dying wor-ds… the Conquer-ror must be st-stopp-ed…Ughh….uhh…”
CJ dies and BJ goes in a fit of sadness and rage.
A Son’s Loss
BJ feels hopeless, and runs back to base. There is a problem in that. THERE IS NO BASE. On his mission, BJ’s base gets nuked. Of course, back then, no one knew what atomic bomb was. It was devastating. BJ feels lost and alone. He wanders around, hoping to find Wagram. He calls up a small group of soldiers to help him beat Wagram.
The Young Marquis
In another universe, a man sits on his throne. 4 of his bodyguards stand before him. The man is revealed to be named David. He knows about the existence of CJ and BJ. He seems intent on helping BJ and CJ. He says that he must strike now that Wagram is gone to the other universe, and that he will not tolerate giving in. It is revealed that the city he is the king of is the city of Athlum, and that he owns a something called the Gae Bolg, and that his city owns something called the Valaria Heart. David says that he will send the Gae Bolg to BJ when the time is right. He feels emotional to BJ for some reason. BJ doesn’t even know who this man. “What am I doing, sitting here?”
Slipping through your fingers
At the spot of BJ’s dream, stands Wagram. He stands alone. BJ confronts him. Wagram says that there is no hope for this sinning world unless they begin to obey the rules.
“Before men so much as crawled upon this earth, Remnants existed, bringing harmony and balance. They were divine creations, made to be worshipped by men. That changed with one who could control them all. Over time, men grew more and more audacious, treating Remnants as nothing more than beneficial tools. So foolish are men. Now comes a Remnant that can express his wishes and desires. We must obey, and listen to all he has to say, at whatever the cost. That is the only role of such unworthy creatures! Men must learn to fear the power of Remnants once more.”
“Who is that other man in my dreams?”
“You of all people must understand, BJ. It is the Conqueror. He is now seizing remnants so humans will not abuse them.”
“What if the Conqueror is planning something terrible, like taking over the world or something?”
“Don’t you hear me, my boy? Whatever the cost.”
BJ figures that apparently, men were sinning by not worshiping Remnants. He decides to fight Wagram again. Wagram looks at him and shakes his head.
“Hmh… This is our cue.” Wagram says to himself, his fan in front of his face.
“If you don’t surrender, I will have to force you to stop. Under the laws of the USA, I will have to take you in.”
“I tire of this talk, BJ. Enough! Be gone!”
“No, you will answer me. I don’t let people hurt my brother for nothing! You won’t be running away this time!”
“Do you think I will not harm you just because you are BJ?”
“Both of us are men of reason. And one can surely understand… the impracticality to obeying all laws. But I will leave, if that is what you wish. I shan’t dare put you out. We merely got off on the wrong foot.”
“No! Your story seems plausible at best. You will come with me and I will confirm your intentions. If you don’t, you will rue the day you touched my brother!”
“You do not take my word as fact? Perhaps I will convince you… BY FORCE!”
Remnant of Fear
“Mystic magicks bound to my call. Within the void, envelope all!”
He strikes the ground with his fan, and the black symbol of magicks appears on the ground. High up on the sky, the same symbol is shown. Flame appears out of nowhere, encircling the symbol. From the ground, a foul creature appears. It is the Gates of Hell.
BJ eventually defeats the Gates of Hell after a very challenging fight. Wagram then opens up a portal, and out comes the man in crimson robes. It is revealed that he is the Conqueror. The Conqueror talks to BJ. He says that even if BJ opposed his plan, he cannot stop him. The Conqueror vanishes. Wagram then looks at BJ intently.
“If you think you can manipulate the Conqueror, then you are as arrogant as you are foolish.”
Wagram leaves. BJ then goes on his trail, running to a Black Sun worshipping spot. On his way, he meets Nazis guarding the area, and zealots. This is weird, since Hitler is dead. He continues onward. The Black Sun worshipping spot is after a series of sewers, and they are extensive. After a long trek, BJ sees a man. It is David.
Bonds of Friendship
“Who are you?
“Whoa, don't be so trigger happy, BJ. My name is David. By now I'm use Wagram has talked you up about his little crusade across universes...”
“Yes he has. Why are you here?”
“There are as many universes as there are grains of sand. Each represents a different version of the world. When the world was created, God made humans as images of him... and Remnants, the projections made to rule over humans. In each universe, all the people on a planet... well, most of them... are just mirror images of the same person across universes.”
“BJ, I am your brother, as a mirror image across another universe.”
“You are him but you are not him?”
“Precisely. Look BJ, I would love to sit here and chat all day, but my city is under siege. When the time is right, I will send my most precious weapon to aid you in combat... That is, the Remnant, Gae Bolg. You'll need it. This Wagram figured popped up and ransacked my city, so I'll do all I can to help you.”
“So now you leave?”
“Yes. One last thing, BJ. Wagram's power stems from hell. He will summon the Apocalypse to try to bring down the Devil multiply the Conqueror's power. Stop him by...”
And David disappears. After all, David didn't cross universes, he just sent video link through universes. Guess Wagram's army is closer to David's city than he assumed.
BJ takes a short rest. He dreams of the Conqueror… he activates a device… his power reigns supreme… men are tortured somehow remotely, although this connection is unclear…
A Special Girl
Wagram is seen, walking to the Conqueror. He speaks to him.
“My lord, what shall we do with this BJ figure?”
“He has shown every sign of being against us and our efforts… Perhaps… it is time for him to disappear from the picture altogether…”
“Enough talk. Do what you can to spare his existence. That is all.”
“Yes, my lord.”
Eventually BJ makes his way onward and finds the place to house 3 monsters. BJ solves this by raining a shower of lead on them.
“Impressive.” Said Wagram, but he isn't here...?
All a sudden, some supernatural stuff begins to happen, and a monster begins to appear from the ground.
“David actually dared to use a Remnant against ME? Of all people...! Then, I must punish him. You first though. In the core of your planet, Earth, is Remnant locked away by the intense heat and pressure. Let's see how the Cyclops does with David's Gae Bolg... *Laughs* But you see, here is the kicker. All I need to do is brain wash Cyclops to destroy good instead of preserve it. And now he is my little agent. Let's see you talk your way out of THIS, BJ.”
The Cyclops appears.
Out of Control
Eventually, BJ wins.
“Now, a real man would face me instead of conjuring up pawns to do his work. Why are the Nazis helping you?
“BJ, is your skull really that empty? I am LORD Wagram. Deathshead is the mirror image of Schabbs... just as David is to CJ. Deathshead was sent here to ensure that upon Hitler's death, a phenomenon would accord allowing me to walk across universes. So I did. Deathshead had the whole Nazi army brainwashed.”
“Just for the Sod? The most powerful Remnants of all, is that it?”
“There is one Remnant above all. He is made as a neutral Remnant. Then, the Scepter, a Remnant made to conjure up Hell, was formed. To balance out the bad, the Spear of Destiny was made, to do good. But that's not how the Sod is being used here, is it?”
Seeing as BJ is rendered speechless, Wagram says: “You beat the Gates of Hell. There is potential in you. I can help unlock it. It's not too late. Join me... otherwise... Enjoy your feast today, for you shall starve tomorrow... Goodbye, BJ.”
BJ eventually camps outside, confused and lost.
“BJ... I'm so sorry; I didn't realize that Wagram would use the Gae Bolg like that...”
“Look, I hate Wagram as much as you. He caused Emma to die... She's like a mother to me... I will avenge this, OK?”
“I don't even know where to go now...”
“The fight will show up at your doorstep.”
The fight did show up at BJ’s doorstep. In the middle of USSR, some strange phenomenon spawned, and BJ went to check it out.
Enter the Seven
BJ goes around the shores up a mountain, and finds six bases guarding something in the middle. In the middle, a gigantic beam of light extends upward to the clouds. BJ goes in. Each base is guarded by a guardian chosen by the Conqueror, although one base features two girls who are twins. Each person gives up a great fight. BJ has to hurry to reach the middle before something horrible happens. BJ eventually reaches the center.
“I believe you’ve been warned about this. Continued association with the Conqueror will be harmful to your health. “
“You still have a chance to escape with your lives. Get out of here.”
“And if I refuse?”
“As you wish. I SHALL WIPE YOUR VERY EXISTENCE FROM THE THIS EARTH!”
He gets out his fan. He chants, “The binding oaths of magicks old, summon your being and your soul! From whitest heavens you shall soar! To darkest earth your home no more! Coooommmmeeee forth!” He closes his fan and aims it at the sky. The clouds whiten, as Armageddon descends to earth! Wagram’s fan is the scepter!
Wheat from the Chaff
Eventually BJ lives through Armageddon.
“I am most impressed. You potential far exceeds my expectations.”
“What was that thing??”
“That, BJ, was the Apocalypse. The icon of sin. Its goal is to die. To die is to bring about the Devil into this universe. Eons later, the Apocalypse will regenerate, ready to wreak havoc onto another world.”
The sky turns blood red. BJ does not see the Devil himself.
“Take heed, BJ. Leave the Conqueror be. Your life may be in jeopardy if you don’t.”
“Wagram! You coward! You just summon some monster and run off like a little girl!”
“If I ever see you again, BJ, I will ensure your demise. Consider yourself warned.”
“What’s so special about this place, anyways?”
“The Sacred Lands stretch across multiple dimensions and universes, and are the birthplace to all Remnants. I'm on my way there... Now, you will have to excuse me…”
“I’ll take you down right now! Don’t you dare run from me!”
“All in due time, BJ. You too, Marquis of Athlum. I despise your treachery. When the powers of Remnants sweep multiple worlds, you will know. The divine judgment that is me will come and haunt you.”
“That’s not even what the Conqueror wants!”
“Hmm. Who is to say that I am only loyal to the Conqueror?”
“The Conqueror will strike you down. And after that, I will strike him down.”
“Hmmm… you have mistaken me. You have no idea, BJ. Let’s leave it at that. My loyalties are still with the Conqueror... Heh. I am merely doing what the Remnants desire of us.”
“You dare deny the Conqueror? Don’t you dare question me, either! I will split your fragile existence on a whim. Your life is no longer of any consequence. The Conqueror can back me up on this one. All you are now is a nuisance. You still can switch sides, BJ, but I know you won’t. If that is so… expect considerable ramifications that will result, even after my supposed death…”
“We’ll see who gets the last laugh, Wagram.”
“Don’t follow me. This is your last warning.”
Wagram bores a hole into the ground, and disappears. The Conqueror appears near the hole. He looks at BJ. BJ charges in a pent of rage. The Conqueror blocks all of BJ’s attacks. He does a few attacks to BJ, but BJ gets back up. The Conqueror teleports to behind BJ, and gives him a good whack. “Foolish boy.” he mutters. Then he teleports away.BJ runs back to where he threw away the Spear. He grabs it, knowing this might increase his ability to fight the Conqueror. BJ finds that place Wagram opened up and runs down. He finds some aqueducts, with some puzzles he must solve. He eventually reaches the center of the aqueducts.
In the center of the giant room is a depression. And standing in the middle is the Conqueror. He moves his hand a bit, and a red sea of aura appears, as if the room is flooded with it. BJ comes in just in time to see the Conqueror in a sea of red. The Conqueror spots BJ, and shakes his head. And just like that, the Conqueror descends into the depression. BJ runs up to the depression. He feels a bit of a tingling. Then, all of a sudden, as if consumed, a green sea of aura appeared, and just like that, BJ descends into the depths of Hell, on hot pursuit of the Conqueror, himself.
“BJ.... BJ, can you hear me?”
“Yeah. Speak your mind.”
“I cannot extend my image down into the depths of Hell. You are going to be alone, BJ. Very alone. But you have no choice. To reach Elysion, the birthplace of Remnants, you must cross part of Hell. No man has ever laid his eyes on that place since the world dawned. Good luck BJ, for not just your sake, but ours too...”
BJ goes into the depths of Hell. Hell seems like it's some underground place, although that's not the case, since it's in another dimension altogether. Lava, dead bodies, and crazy people are everywhere. He eventually reaches a large door, up at a cliff, seemingly leading to nowhere, floating in midair. BJ opens it, and walks into it.
All of a sudden, he finds himself standing at some platform. This area is fantastic. There are platforms everywhere, and as BJ moves, platforms descend and ascend by themselves. These long platforms glow with text written on the platforms. BJ continues his journey. As he continues, it begins to get dark. Mystical towers are seen, glowing with light. The light turns on, and off, on and off, glowing with mostly orange. BJ eventually finds another odd looking door. He opens it up.
The Ageless Mage
It is the Conqueror, looking at a machine far off.
“Conqueror! What are you up to?”
“You now wield the power of the Spear. How can anyone know you won’t abuse its power?”
“What are you doing here?”
“If you have not awakened by now, then you are no longer necessary.”
“I turned Hitler and Deathshead into their current conditions. All for the best. BJ, you must know why I am doing this. When one Remnant is overused, it will trigger the calamity known as the Collapse. All men and Remnants alike will be destroyed if this happens. There will be nothing left in all universes. The death toll will be calamitous. I am merely doing what saves more lives. Even if you… cannot do it.”
“Men can learn to stop abusing Remnants, especially if it means their death.”
“I see people destroy worlds for greed alone. Their immense greed swallows planets whole, and when all is destroyed, they consume their selves.” He shakes his head.
The Conqueror disappears further into this area, near a machine. BJ runs towards it, but two men are at the door.
It is Wagram and Deathshead.
“My young BJ, you and I both know that the Conqueror would prefer it if you bid a hasty retreat. Leave now or I will have to deal with you… personally. I hope to not have more blood on my hands, BJ.”
“Tell me about Hitler!”
“Hmph. His abuse of remnants led to his eventual downfall. He cannot unlock the true power of the remnants! He is merely fuel for their fire… You see, only Remnants or those of the Marshall bloodline such as I may control Remnants to their full extent. Hitler is neither of those things.”
“I will find the Conqueror, even if it means going through you.”
“As I said… not going to happen.”
“BJ, BJ, BJ! I finally get to chat with you in person once again. You must be so short minded as to think that I would just ally with Hitler. HA! I know you, BJ. *** headed and naïve. But you also have a tendency to show up at the worst possible moment, so we have taken certain precautions.”
“Class is in session. Prepare to get schooled!” yelled Deathshead.
“Hmmm... indeed. Ready yourself, BJ! I won’t back down. This fight is to the death.”
Wagram summons the AoD. Wagram then appears on top of the gate and watches. Then, as the battle starts, the screen turns whitish like in TLR bosses. Eventually, Deathshead is dead. The AoD, up until now, have been invincible since Wagram was shielding it. Then, when Deathshead dies, Wagram jumps down from the gate. He seemingly unleashes some dark power, risking his life to increase his power. He then summons a monster from hell, and launches a gigantic inferno at BJ. Aod's shield collapses. It is now Wagram + Aod vs BJ. With the extreme power that comes from the 3rd most powerful Remnant in all universes, BJ eventually wins, and the gates open.
The Warden and the Activator
It is the Conqueror. BJ walks up to the Conqueror, time is slowed down and the scene is dramatized. The Conqueror is standing as he does in original cut scene of TLR.
“What’s your game, Conqueror?”
“I desire to release Remnants from the hands of men.”
Time for Release
“The beings of this planet have become far too accustomed to using Remnants as their tools. At this rate, they will push the power of Remnants beyond their limits. They will destroy all existence.”
“Ridiculous. Do you really think so little of us?”
“Do you really think your trust in mankind is founded?” asked the Conqueror.
“My duty is to prevent that eventuality.” , said the Conqueror, walking down a set of stairs.
“Who… what really are you?”
“Merely one warden of the Remnants.” Said the Conqueror, walking down the steps of stairs, his body pulsating with orange energy as he walks down the stairs.
“Warden...? ...So, there’s something in Elysion that you need to release the Remnants, is that it?”
The Conqueror sighs. “You should know. This was not originally my task to complete! With the activation of this machine, all of the world’s Remnants will be freed!”
“While we are answering questions, maybe you can answer me this! Why did you brainwash Hitler and Deathshead?”
“I desire to learn to what extent releasing Remnants would affect this world. Thankfully, I found that Remnants merely consumer lesser life forms. Like men.”
*Shows Hitler and Deathshead going crazy.*
“People consumed by Remnants? Then… if all of the world’s Remnants were released…”
“Well, do you finally understand?”
“I understand that you don’t really give a damned about people’s lives! But me? My friends and family are something I wouldn’t trade for the world. I’ll protect them, no matter what!”
The Conqueror shakes his head.
“As you wish. I won’t hold back.” He closed his eyes, and then opens it. His pupils are dilated, and orange. An orange aura temporarily appears, and he spread out his arms.
“Come.” He said, in a low voice, his face showing murder.
And just like that, BJ pumped up with the power of Sod, faces the man that swallowed a city, whole.
Nisus – First form
Schismogenesis – Last Form
BJ eventually does a crapload of damage to the Conqueror. The Conqueror then sees that he cannot defeat BJ by himself, so he calls in the Devil. He binds himself to the Devil. Now the Conqueror is at his true potential. The Conqueror staggers as if weak, and then regains his focus, groaning loudly. A red aura appears, persisting. He now levitates. Now he becomes bullshittingly overpowered. He binds himself to the Devil that was summoned by Armageddon. Eventually, BJ finds some way to beat him.
The Final Sacrifice
The Conqueror lays on the ground, bleeding and worn out. His sword flings from the sky, piercing the ground near him. BJ is seen, kneeling, obviously worn out as well. He pants a bit, savoring his victory. The machine behinds the Conqueror begins to start, even without his own command. BJ realizes that the machine might activate by itself. BJ hesitates, thinking about what to do. The Conqueror begins to get up. This bastard never dies, does he?!?
BJ runs up to attack the Conqueror. The Conqueror magically has the sword come to his hand, and battles BJ.
“So long as humans go unchecked, you are a weapon. That’s all you are! You cannot stop me, BJ... You don't understand... I am your mirror image in another universe! This is divine will! You and I... we are Remnants. Why would you betray your own kind? You can still save lives, BJ. Do you not see that this is for the greater good?”
The fight is uphill for BJ, and the Conqueror managed to get BJ caught off guard, and fatally wounds him. BJ is thrown backwards from the hit.
BJ heroically gets up and runs toward the Conqueror. His true Remnant glow appears, and he glows green as opposed to the Conqueror’s red.
The Conqueror attempts to activate the device, freeing all Remnants. BJ runs toward the Conqueror… The time is slowed down. Clips of BJ’s past are shown; this includes his chat before he begins his final mission, his fight with the Aod, his encounter with Hitler, and Wagram, and the Conqueror… Sound is played, as the player hears what the Conqueror said in the past. Everything feels like a blur, yet time is slowed down. BJ makes it to the Conqueror. BJ smashes his hand, with his last burst of power, into the Conqueror. BJ's hand is lodged inside the Conqueror, but he lacks the strength to pull it out. BJ sacrifices his life to stop the Conqueror. The Conqueror’s red aura shines around the area, but BJ’s green aura soon fills the room as well. It’s almost as if the Conqueror is the opposite of BJ, yet he is the same.
“……Such… power… and you chose to be used by humans?”
“But me? My family and friends are something I wouldn’t trade for the world. I’ll protect them, no matter what… even if it means reversing the process… goodbye, all Remnants…”
A voice is heard; it is David…
“You’ll die, BJ. It’s not worth it. You’ll die.”
“I know. Because I’m a Remnant too, right?” said BJ.
“You’ve all done so much for me. I can’t just let you all die! People will find a way to live without us.” Said BJ. “David, I’m sorry. I’ll never see you again.”
The Conqueror groans loudly. BJ then melds inside the Conqueror himself. Both BJ and Conqueror scream in pain. The device in Elysion begins to spin out of control, and the clash of red vs. green can no longer be ignored. BJ’s green creeps up everywhere, overpowering the red. BJ beings to die, his face softening, his body slouching. The Conqueror stands still, not able to move. The place explodes. The Conqueror dies.
Journey’s End (By Donna Burke)
Hell is gone. There is no more sin. There is no more war.
In Wagram’s world, men are astonished at the Remnants, all fading into the void. Not even the Conqueror has any say. David walks through Athlum, obviously sad. His bodyguards keep men from getting close to him. David stops midway on his walk. He looks up at the sky. His bodyguards look up as well. The missing Valaria Heart must be gone forever. Some phenomena of Remnants disappearing are seen. It then shows from different places, Remnants disappearing. Children and men stare up at the disappearing Valaria Heart. Across the countless forests, Remnants, both discovered and undiscovered, disappear into oblivion. Through the seas, magical figures are seen, floating and swooshing around as Remnants cease to exist. David Nassau is seen, feeling his eye patch that was used to power the Gae Bolg. David cries.
A quick video of BJ’s start, fighting all the bosses in the game. A few clips of Wagram talking to BJ, his summoning of the Gates of Hell, and the Conqueror invading Athlum is shown. Between each scenario mentioned, the video switches or pauses by showing more Remnants disappearing, with magical figures floating about.
The madness of Hitler and Deathshead are shown. As the music fades, Hitler’s mad face begins to fade as well.
As this song, “Journey’s End”, is played, subtitles for the lyrics are shown.
The credits come on, as the Finale music is played. It starts by showing the main people that took part in making this game, with the text showing up and the disappearing after a set amount of time. Then, as all of those are shown already…
The credits roll up, up showing many people’s names. This long list of names includes everyone IN the wolf3d community, both in Wolf3d Haven AND DHW. The background to the text is a picture of The Last Remnant’s Cover.
After all is shown, every possible person I can think of has been given credit, artwork and pictures without any sounds are played. (BTW, the player cannot skip the credits.) Pictures of the people who took part in making the game are shown. A few more pictures of the main characters only (in the game) show up. After that, banners of Wolf3d fan sites show up, including DHW, Wolf3d Haven, and such. Banners for the tools used in making of this game are shown. The background turns pitch black as the banners scroll. Some BS’ed copyright crap is shown. Then, afterwards, a very short version of the story of this game is shown, summarized into a few phrases. Then, the screen goes black. The Finale music finishes playing. A short video appears, with Wagram saying:
“My goals have been met. I would run, if I were you. Unless you truly wish to die…”
And the screen fades back to black, and the game ends.
What? What the hell was that last line about? You may know, you may never know. Better keep it that way.
Then, the last screen is shown.
.....................The Conqueror and bj are one in the same.
...........................................................Set apart by time and space,
...............................................................................but they’ll be one again.
The game ends without showing any other screen or high-scores.
Why were there two BJs? Why did God make BJ? What truly is different from the Conqueror and BJ? How did CJ know about the Conqueror? Is Wagram still alive? Why did God make remnants? Will Hell launch a full scale assault after this? Who really are BJ’s parents?
That, my friends, is another story for another time.
THE END. YOU HAVE BEATEN WOLFENSTIEN NEVER-ENDING.
You have unlocked the Hardcore Difficulty Level and Extra Missions!
The true question is, is BJ really the good guy? The Conqueror is here to save Remnants first, humans second, but he is, after all, probably saving more lives that way. By leaving Remnants unattended throughout multiple universes, some idiot is bound to overload a Remnant. And when that happens, all is lost. Who do you think is the good guy?
The Conqueror is BJ's mirror image, as David is to CJ, and Deathshead is to Schabbs. Both the Conqueror and BJ are Remnants. Because of this, BJ was able to utilize the Sod to its full potential, allowing BJ to win.
From the description I put earlier, you might think that I would give the Nazi fights and levels less priority, but that’s not true. It just that, more of the story progresses per event after Hitler dies.
And finally: English is not my first language, but I hope you understood and enjoyed the story.
