TREY: I personally know a few people who are here tonight who don’t know what’s going on right now so let me convey this to everybody. Picture if you will, here we are in this vast green forest laid out behind us, a huge mountain off in the distance. We’re in Gamehendge right now… Somewhere in the distance, the sounds of the people of Gamehendge, the Lizards, everywhere in the distance.

Ok so you have the forest out there, Colonel Forbin, the hero, right now is climbing up the mountain. As he climbs up the mountain, he can hear the sounds of the villagers playing the didgeridoos down in the forest below as he goes up the hill to find the great and knowledgeable Icculus. Of course, he’s going to find the Great and Knowledgeable Icculus because the Evil King Wilson has taken the Helping Friendly Book, the book that all these people use to base their lives on, stolen it from them and enslaved the people and put them in slavery.

He’s keeping the book in the highest tower of his castle, the Helping Friendly Book. So Colonel Forbin is climbing up the mountain, and he’s going to find the great and knowledgeable Icculus. As he climbs, he can hear the sounds of the dogs off in the distance, and he hears the didgeridoo, the sounds of the wind in the trees in the distance, the dogs barking.

As he gets closer and closer to the top of the mountain, as he comes up, he starts to sense the mountain shaking and vibrating until rocks begin to tumble down all over him. He’s hanging on for dear life. Now as the mountain begins to crumble, it changes shape and out of the top comes this face, this great presence, the great and knowledgeable Icculus.

Icculus looks down at Col Forbin and says, “I will help you so i am going to call my friend, the Famous Mockingbird. The Famous Mockingbird is going to fly down and land on my shoulder, and i will whisper into his ear, ‘Go Famous Mockingbird, fly to the castle of the evil King Wilson, steal the Helping Friendly Book and bring it back to all these innocent people of Gamehendge.”

So here he comes now, the Famous Mockingbird...
