Up: Game 1  Up: Game 1 Outline

One of those days...

"...the killer rabbit from Monty Python and the Holy Grail...Oh Sh-"

Just as the rabbit gets ready to lunge and tear your face to shreds, it explodes in a ball of fire, knocking you to the ground. Trying to figure out what in the name of Uncle Fester happened, you look around the ship corridor, and you see a single man in what looks like wizards robes standing nearby, his finger pointing at where the killer rabbit once was.

"How did you do that?" You ask, rather stupified at the moment.

"I.....am an Enchanter."

"By what name are you known?"

"There are some who call me......Tim"

"Well, thanks Tim," you say, standing back up and looking out one of the many windows of the Star Destroyer, thinking maybe you can figure out where you are. As you look out at the stars, your vast knowledge of useless sci-fi trivia slowly returns to you from the deepest abyss of your mind, and just in time it seems, as you see a gigantic tunafish floating by in space. Now normally, most of this day would have caught you off guard, and the floating tunafish would have only made you totally crack, but thanks to that before-mentioned knowledge, you merely think to yourself:

A floating tunafish? Eh, why not? Happened to the SDF-1 Macross...

Then your eyes are greeted by what looks like a pod of dolphins, and you almost swear you could hear a bunch of high-pitched dolphiny voices saying "So long and thanks for all the fish."

Yeah... you think to yourself, It's going to be one of those days...

No sooner is that thought thought out, that there is a blinding flash of light, and a giant ball of yarn appears out of nowhere, quickly turning into a spaceship that you recognize as the Heart of Gold, as it gets closer to the Destroyer. In fact, you realize that its headed on a collision course for the very window you're standing at. Now, normally you'd panic, but your sci-fi knowledge assures you there is no need to move.

Only a few feet away from your window, the Heart of Gold suddenly veers to the right, and crashes halfway through the wall of what is supposed to be one of the mightiest ships of the Galactic Empire. The hatch of the ship opens and Zaphod Beeblebrox: President of the Galaxy, stealer of the Heart of Gold, and all around moron, stumbles out the door. A few curses towards Eddy, the ship's navigation system come from Zaphod, until he notices you and Tim.

"Hey, you guys need a lift off this piece of junk ship?"

Ford steps out of the ship holding up a small glass.

"We've got Pan Galactic Gargle Blasters!"

So, what will you and Tim do? Will you remain on the piece of junk Star Destroyer? Or are you up for some crazy adventures and having the feeling of your brain being smashed out by a slice of lemon wrapped around a gold brick from a Gargle Blaster?
