004 – Humanity’s Final Day

Splatoon3-Shiver /

"The years passed with prosperity. The population of Alterna grew like a rising tide. The scientists, now the elders of their kind, believed they had done all they could to advance the civilization of Alterna. They began selecting new leaders to succeed them, entrusting to them the world they helped build. Humanity’s new leaders inherited both the brilliance of their predecessors and their unquenchable thirst for innovation. This new generation, born and raised in deep Alterna, would prove to be every bit the match of those they were to succeed. They soon grew restless at the sign of the liquid-crystal sky, believing they deserved to behold the reality that existed outside the cavern. The elders-who knew what awaited outside the safe haven of Alterna-issued stern warnings to the brash young scientists. Nevertheless, the young scientists pressed on with their plan: the construction of a massive rocket ship to escape Alterna. Sadly, as the boosters were ignited for the first time during a launch test, tragedy struck. The energy from the rocket boosters overloaded the cavern’s liquid crystals. A violent and terrible chain reaction ensued. Without warnin, the stone walls of the cavern began to shatter, raining debris down upon humanity. Alterna, the last civilization of once-prosperous humanity, was no more. And those few who escaped the carnage would soon follow it into death."

005 – Fresh Intelligence Awakens

Splatoon3-Stay-Fresh /

"As the innter walls of Alterna collapsed, thousands of tons of rock and liquid crystal plunged into the waters below. As these crystals washed to and fro among the flotsam and jetsam of humanity’s former colony, they broke into microscopic fragments. Because they had repeatedly absorbed and reflected humanity’s wishes over so many years, the crystals retained those…feelings. Little by little, the squids, octopuses, and assorted sea creatures that thrived in the waters of Alterna absorbed these crystals into their bodies. This process continued until, one day, the marine organisms began to feel something. Something…fresh. These fresh impulses bore a strinking resemblance to humanity’s massive desire to return to the Earth’s surface. Spurred by these impulses-and whatever else may have been floating in the polluted waters-the sea creatures begin to evolve rapidly. Each species developed pulmonary respiration, mobility, and other traits consistent with land-dwelling creatures. They began to adapt. Their intelligence grew at a remarkable pace across generations. Some species even gained extraordinary camouflage capabilities. A point of no return arrived. The sea creatures of Alterna set foot on dry land and never looked back. Like humans, they strove for the surface. Of course, survival on land was harsh. But the creatures were presistent. Soon, they found the tunnels that humans had used to escape the apocalypse. With the path forward now clear, these fresh, fledgling beings left the ruins of Alterna behind and set their sights on the surface world."

006 – The Land of Fresh Beginnings

Splatoon3-Absorbency-And-You /

"The beings that had emerged from the water soon emerged from the cavern of Alterna itself. From there, they flourished quickly. It wasn’t long before they had explored every corner of the world. This epochal event gave great significance to the crater above Alterna and it’s surrounding territories, now referred to as the Splatlands. The region would, from that point on, be known as “the land of fresh beginnings” among the creatures that now thrive on the surface. These newly evolved beings, having scattered themselves across the globe, soon gave rise to distinct cultures and unique ways of life. Out of all species now roaming the Earth, squids and octopuses soon distinguished themselves via intellegence and “fresh vibes,” so to speak. It wasn’t long before they became the apex species of the planet. Now…I must fast-foward a bit. Five thousand years later…a peculiar individual was born. This quid quickly rose to fame in the Splatlands due to some…unique characteristics. Yes, this individual was embraced as a prophet, gifted with numerous revelations for modern cephalopod civilization were laid. That invdividul squid is now widely known as calabrated as the progenitor of the modern-day Inkling."

Log.exe 007 – Return of the Mammalians

"Recall, for a moment, the first apocalypse that devastated the human race. Those who escaped into the caverns of Alterna were not the sole survivors. There were others who escaped via a giant rocket ship-the Ark Polaris. Launched in the nick of time, this ship was laden with many of Earth’s species that had been placed in a cold sleep. The mission was simple-find another planet to replace the Earth. Considering the circumstances of its launch, the Polaris had a smooth voyage…until it reached the edge of the solar system. It was at that point that debris struck the vessel, damagin its navigation system. The crew was able to turn the ship around and head back toward Earth, but the efoort was in vain-there was not enough fuel to attempt a landing. The Ark Polaris drifted aimlessly for 10,000 years. Eons passed. The once-stable orbit of the Polaris decayed over time until the ship found itself in the inescapable pull of the Earth’s gravity. Reentry was not kind to its inhabitants-all perished, save one. Bear #03, an experiment subject who had retained consciousness within his cold hibernation, survived. For 12,000 years he had dreamed. And plotted. Fully awakened, Bear #04 came to a terrible realization. He had not landed on a new planet at all. He was back on Earth. And yet, it was not an EArth he knew. This Earth, it seemed, was dominated by sea creatures. Not a single mammal to be found. In the course of his search for even a single fellow mammal, Bear #03 used navigational equipment from the wreckage of the Ark Polaris to discover Alterna. It was a wasteland, of course, but a few of the liquid crystals that had once covered the walls and ceiling remained. With knowledge built during his thousands of years of dreaming, he repaired some of Alterna’s facilities and began researching the crystals… This research bore fruit when Bear #03 compounded some of the liquid crystals with his own fur. The experiment created an entirely new substance with one terrifying property-it could transform any living creature into a mammal. Bear #03 realized the implications immediately. He could restore the planet to a mammalian paradise! He began stockpiling Fuzzy Ooze, as he called it, within Alterna’s still intact rocket… For such a venture, he would require the acquisition of thousnads of Golden Eggs. These were used in the creation of the Fuzzy Ooze, although the exact details have never been recorded in my memory banks. But Bear #03 had a plan. He founded a corporation that would go on to employ locals to collect his Golden Eggs under the name Grizzco Industries. Mr. Grizz, as he was now known, would pay handsomely for them… With Fuzzy Ooze production peaking thanks to the assistance of unsuspecting Inklings and Octolings, Mr. Grizz took the final steps to set his plan in motion. The rocket was loaded… It wouldn’t be long now."
