Alt name: When Hell Freezes Over

As the name suggests, this is a direct sequel to the penguin quest Back to the Freezer. It continues the theme of time travel and focuses on the dangers of tampering with history. I was inspired by the movie Back to the Future, Part 2

Warning: Spoilers!

After we sabotaged the penguins’ weather control device, they spent a long time getting it back to the iceberg. They’re working on fixing the TARDIS and trying again, according to Gordon. Chuck says Gordon discovered something big about the TARDIS, something that could change everything and would look into it. We haven’t heard anything from him since, and it’s been weeks since then. You can see where this is going. Time to head back to the iceberg

After linking up with Gordon in the interrogation and convincing the Interrogator to step out, he tells the player to get to the bunker RIGHT NOW. One of the penguins, Emperor Wing, found a piece of the De-Lore-Ing. He thinks it’s part of a teleporter of some kind, and he’s not entirely wrong. They’re trying to attach it to the TARDIS, so they can teleport the device to anywhere on Gielnor. The piece breaking off is why the time machine kept malfunctioning in the previous quest. For now, they don’t know what it is, but if they figure out how to make a time machine of their own, the consequences would be immeasurable. Gordon tried to contact Chuck to warn him but got caught. He’s been in a cell ever since. Thankfully they didn’t get anything out of him

When trying to enter the bunker without the De-Lore-Ing, the player will comment that they think they’ll need it for this and won’t enter. A cutscene ensues while entering, showing the TARDIS fully repaired and with several new gizmos attached. The player tries to sabotage the device, but something happens. Something about the modded TARDIS is reacting to the De-Lore-Ing in your inventory. In a blinding flash of light the player gets sucked into a portal.

The player lands in a strange and cold world, completely covered in ice and unrecognizable. The De-Lore-Ing is severely damaged, preventing them from returning to the present. They find themselves stuck in their penguin suit, unable to get out. After a bit of exploring, they find themselves in a large city that they realize, horrified, is Varrock. They traveled 30 years into the future, to a world conquered by the penguins. Emperor Wing is living up to his name, ruling this frigid world with an iron wing. His mechanized soldiers, inspired by the player’s clockwork penguin suit, enforce his will

After many fights and tracking down the resistance, the player eventually manages to the repair the De-Lore-Ing with future Gordon’s help. The player intends to come back with help, but Gordon insists they have to destroy the device, prevent this from happening. He modifies the De-Lore-Ling to act like a bomb, detonating in a massive explosion if it gets close to the TARDIS. The player reluctantly agrees and returns to the present day. Back in the bunker, they find Wing preparing to make his own jump through time with his newly-completed time machine/weather control device. Horrified, the player realizes Gordon was right. Under the guise of helping with the finishing touches, the player rams the De-Lore-Ing into the roof of the TARDIS, drawing Wing’s attention. He realizes they’re the saboteur the KGP has been looking for and is furious. The player tells them all to run before making a break for it themselves. The bunker explodes in a flash of light, destroying the TARDIS, the time machine, and everything else

Upon returning to Chuck, the player is having trouble remembering anything after entering that portal, but Chuck assures them they did the right thing. By destroying the bunker, they not only destroyed the TARDIS, they also prevented the penguins from building another one, or other weapons like it. In the end, mission accomplished

Unfortunately, despite this crushing blow, the war isn’t over. The penguins will be out for blood for this. Chuck tells the player he’ll contact them when the time comes for the final mission
