New Stream Idea - Play Me a Story

Introductory Statement: As we explore more of the station, we run across a somewhat familiar, mechanical face.

Foreboding Clarification: But not all is quite as it seems, as the droid knows far more than he is willing to reveal.

List of Queries Culminating in an Irrelevant, Unrelated Query: Do we trust him? Can we at least work with him? What does the station look like from the outside?

Clumsy Concluding Invitation: Find out in this episode of Press Play!

Due to technical difficulties, Link finds his final battle with Vaati put on hold. In the meanwhile, a begins his own heroic quest by herding animals and putting on a performance for children. This will end up being a pretty boring adventure, unless something crazy occurs, like a bunch of monsters kidnapping the children and turning Link into a wolf; but what are the odds of that happening?

As we work on escaping the station, we're confronted by a Sith with VERY dry skin. Furious at the lack of moisturizer on board, he attacks, and Kreia decides to hold him off while we get away. This doesn't bode well, given how things have gone when other characters have offered to do the same in similar circumstances, but there's little other choice.

Eventually, we make it to our ship and meet up with Kreia, who managed to not die! The Sith make one last attempt to blow us up along with the station, but we escape and are finally free! Now we are no longer trapped, but can go where we wish and explore the wider galaxy! We decide to start with Telos, where we're immediately placed under arrest and imprisoned. Great.

We work with Midna to escape and discover that an evil force from a realm of darkness is trying to invade our light world. Fortunately, we have some friends to help us out! Between bratty imps, legendary skeleton warriors, human-bird hybrid things, glowing animal spirits, and a monkey; Link has more comrades than ever before!

We're at least temporarily cleared of charges, so it's time to explore Citadel Station! We encounter both the Czerka Corporation and some Ithorians competing for a terraforming contract; through threats, espionage, and even assassination attempts! Who knew ecological work involved so much intrigue?

Where've they gone?
Scattered through the trees
To try to gather them all up
Will take a lot of keys!

Hey, hey, they're the monkeys
And I think they'll help us get around
We're not beating this dungeon
Until everybody's found

You know they want us to
Help them to find their crew
Even their fallen boss is
A good friend when we're through!

Hey, hey, they're the monkeys
And people say they monkey around
But with their crazy swinging
They aren't gonna let us down

They really seem quite friendly
And when hardships come our way
If we all work together
We'll beat this dungeon today!

Nothing keeps Link in shape like playing lots of sports. From Skeleton Fencing, to Bulblin Jousting, to Goron Sumo; Link can win them all! ...after a few practice rounds, of course.

If we could also organize the 50m Zora Freestyle and Bomb Put events, we'd be all set to hold the Hyrule Olympics!

As the battle wages on between groups trying to secure a contract, only one being can save the day. Only one droid can infiltrate the enemy's office, convince an astromech to go on a rampage as a distraction, and retrieve the data we need. B-4D4 is the hero we never knew we needed!

What it was could not be seen: it was like a great shadow, in the middle of which was a dark form, of man-shape maybe, yet greater; and a power and terror seemed to be in it and to go before it.

It came to the edge of the fire and the light faded as if a cloud had bent over it. Then with a rush it leaped across the fissure. The flames roared up to greet it, and wreathed about it; and a black smoke swirled in the air. Its streaming mane kindled, and blazed behind it. In its right hand was a blade like a stabbing tongue of fire; in its left it held a whip of many thongs.

‘Ai! ai!’ wailed Legolas. ‘A Balrog! A Balrog is come!’

Gimli stared with wide eyes. ‘Durin’s Bane!’ he cried, and letting his axe fall he covered his face.

‘A Balrog,’ muttered Gandalf. ‘Now I understand.’ He faltered and leaned heavily on his staff. ‘What an evil fortune! And I am already weary.’

'Don't worry,' said Link, drawing his sword. 'I've got this.'

Our quest becomes more difficult as we have to track down Ilia, jump off a burning bridge, fight a monster-bird, and then ride the monster-bird! It seems that all the troubles are piling on Link all at once! But you know what they say: when life gives you a giant, red-hot lemon-looking rock, drop it onto some frozen Zoras.

When we first arrived at Citadel Station, we had just escaped some Sith hunting us, and ended up imprisoned by people who really shouldn't be our enemies. Now that we've made it to the surface of Telos, we discover we're being hunted by assassin droids!, we escape them and end up imprisoned by people who really shouldn't be our enemies. It's nice to see the story taking such a bold, new path.
