Thousands of years ago an order of the
wisest men from the far East received visions
of the dark realm known as The Outworld. It
was a world ruled by chaos and a vicious
emperor known as Shao Kahn.
They learned that travel between Earth and
the new found realm would someday be possible
if the conditions were right, the conditions
being the unbalancing of the furies - negative
and positive forces which keep our unstable
universe from collapsing onto itself.
Knowing that an Outworld invasion was
imminent, the wise men appealed to the Elder
Gods. It was for this reason the Elder Gods
created the tournament called Mortal Kombat.
For nine generations Mortal Kombat was
ruled by Outworld's finest warrior - Prince
Goro. The Earth was on the brink of its
destruction when a new generation of
warriors were victorious in defending
The warrior monk, Liu Kang would become
the new champion, but his victory was
short lived as he and his comrades find
themselves lured into The Outworld to
compete in a second tournament.
Little did they know that the tournament
was merely a diversion. A scheme devised
by the dark emperor to break the rules set
forth by the Elder Gods and witness the
reincarnation of his former queen Sindel
on the Earth realm itself.
This unholy act gives Shao Kahn the power
to step through the dimensional gates
and reclaim his queen, thus enabling him
to finally seize the Earth.
These are the trilogy of events which
comprise Shao Kahn's final attempt at
taking the Earth.
