The motley band of adventurers got to the throne room just in time to hear the last words of the incarnation fall from the Prince's lips.
They tried to attack, but blue energy swirled around him as the cosmic forces began to flow into him. He began to laugh, maniacally.
"Yes, yes, all the knowledge of the ancients, flowing through me! I know all! BWAHAHA!!!"
There was a flash of light, and the Prince stood there, before suddenly kneeling down and apologizing to the corpses of his parents, then helping wounded.
Thus began the reign of King Andos the Perfect.
