Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge

by Clavius

Part 30: LeChuck's Fabulous Getaway Fortress

To the seedy underbelly of LeChuck's fortress!

What horrors lie in store beyond this passage...

Only the video will tell.

Finally, a little luck navigating these unholy impossibly designed death-holes.

But OH NO, he's going the wrong way!

Ooh, tough break.

Well shit, now we'll actually have to figure it out.

This reminds me of something... But what...

Aha! So, rib top, leg middle, hip bottom.

Take this, asshole door!


And then head rib leg.

Arm head rib.

And finally, leg hip arm.

Hahaaa! I have deciphered your elaborately designed and incredibly convenient living area!

Sounds like a wager to me.


I don't think I should hammer that.

Well maybe this here deadly deadly explosive will do the trick.

Oh you're no fun.

Okay, I think I have it. First I'll need to use the wood polish in the keyholes and let it solidify while I bide my time. Once this is complete I will create a mould using the monkey's paralyzed flesh. Then, by using the matches on some of these books I will create a forge to melt down my existing keys and resolidify the metal in the moulds I have created, thus allowing me to unlock and pass through this tremendous door!

Oh right...

Oh sweet Jesus tell me I can bring this, the mightiest of awesome thrones with me.

No. No time for sitting on thrones right now.

I have this sudden overwhelming feeling of shame and stupidity.


You have finally been caught. I have searched every island... Sailed every sea... And now you are mine. What do you have to say for yourself?

You're so full of crap. You looked nowhere!

You spent all this time sitting on your throne. Didn't you.

Although to be fair I would have done the same.

Take Guybrush down to the torture chamber and get the machine set up.

Yes sir.

Hey... What's a little root beer between friends...

Silence! There is only one thing more painful than being ressurected from the dead and crammed into a rotting body. Do you know what that is? It is what is about to happen to you.

Can't we talk this thing out?

You see that candle over there. When it burns through the rope... The bag will fall onto the bellows... When it is compressed it will fire a single lead bullet... Which will ricochet off that pan, then off the shield behind me, bounce off that other shield... Finally striking the green balloon... When it pops it will cause that lever to fall... Releasing that ratchet on the chain wheel... And sending you down into the pit of acid.

Wow, it'll almost be worth it just to see...

Do you know what happens next? I will then take your bones... Still alive and in great pain... And make them into a chair.

All will be revealed in a few moments.

Why do adventure games cost so much?

Scanned VGA art is very expensive.

Well, we're boned.

I've got a bad feeling about this...

A bad feeling!?! LeChuck's got you hanging in chains over a pit of acid and all you've got is a bad feeling?!?

Gee... I feel even worse when you yell at me...

Just leave me alone.

You're my new hero, Wally.

Well, if I'm gonna die, I'm not going without a little booze to take the edge off!

Oh hello. It's candle spitting time!

Dammit Wally! You're in the way!

Oh you suck!

Okay seriously, you're starting to piss me off.

Well, I'm out of ideas.

Guess I'll just hang out here and wait for death.

Oh... shit... I think I broke it. Thread over guys sorry. Move along people nothing to see here.
