Okay Azoth, you talk to the Blue Knight.
BK: G'DAY GOVERNOR. NICE DAY INNIT? WELCOME BACK, BLOODY FINE BEAUT OF A RIG YOU GOT THERE NOW.
You ask him what's going on.
BK: OH NOT MUCH YOU KNOW HOW IT GOES. WHAT'S GOING ON WITH YOU?
You ask him who he is. He looks confused.
BK: EH, BEEN OFF THE FIRM FOR A BIT NOW SQUIRE? WELL LET ME HAVE THE PLEASURE OF MAKING YOUR ACQUAINTANCE AGAIN. NAME'S DODGETT. HEH HEH, NOT DODGE-EY
. MICK DODGETT, PRIVATE FIRST CLASS IN TH' BLUE KNIGHTS. OL' STRABO'S SECURITY FORCE, CAN'T COMPLAIN, CAN'T COMPLAIN. KEEPS THE DRAUGHTS FULL AND THE WIFE FAT AND QUIET, EH GOV'NR? HEH HEH.
You go for the door.
BK: LET ME GET THAT FOR YA, BRUV.
He opens the door. Looks like this guy is a cop, in metallic blue full plate mail with a dragon emblem on the breastplate.
Inside, you see a little reception area has been set up. The guy's got a card table and a plasma-screen TV. On the TV is a breaking news report.
The local news is showing footage taken by a cellphone camera of a young girl abducted by three strangers. The little girl is Princess Onze! The news says that the Princess has just been kidnapped by three mercenaries near Tzalbourg, on the main island across from Gorgos. On the bottom is a scrolling news flash:ROYAL FAMILY ISSUES REWARD FOR RETURN OF PRINCESS ONEZ: 20,000 GP
It then cuts to footage of a large dirigible landing in a field, and five cool guys get out... it's the Chums of Charon! A message on the screen says 'LIVE FROM THE PARADISE FAIRY ISLAND... THE CHUMS OF CHARO!'.
A reporter interviews them, and the Chums say that they're off to save the Princess. Fans can read all about it in the next comic book, ha ha. They get back in their airship and fly off.
BK: OH THOSE CHUMS, RUDDY GOOD WORK, INNIT? RUDDY GOOD
. DID YOU READ THE LAST ISSUE, 'THE CHUMS OF CHARON AND THE DARING ESCAPE FROM THE MINES OF TITAN!'? FANTASTIC WORK, THAT.
Anyway, a large albatross circles overhead a few times before landing, clumsily. It's got a huge helmet on, with all sorts of wires and antennae. KT, it drops something in your hand. It's a package and a note.Dear the Mr Boss,Hello from the smely caves!! It is me Mr Stavos Vanilli with my latest new inversion. It is something I think you will be find the liking of this.
