For ages it was a competition of honor and glory. Noble warriors from around the globe
were invited to take part, each seeking to win the title of Grand Champion. But that was
a long time ago... before the tournament was currupted by the evil demon Shang Tsung, a
warrior who took not only the lives of his opponents, but their very souls...
With the aid of his pupil Goro, a half-human dragon, Tsung began a domination of the contest
which has lasted for centuries. Today, 500 years later, the contest begins anew as warriors
once again gather to partake in Mortal Kombat.|
