"Oh, Pokey, we need to get out of this swamp before we both get eaten!"
"Mike... I hope you're alright!"
"The crystal - the lost piece of the Sardak crystal that Urr gave me - I figured out how to use it, but I was captured by the guards and one of their captains got his scaly hands on it.""But how will you convince the Princess to aid you in finding the crystal?"
"Do you find me appealing, primate?"
"Wait a second, that's my knife!""Do not be concerned... my esteemed Princess. We will dispose of this vermin."
"I hope you know where you're going, Pokey-"[nearby sound of thunder]
"I REALLY hope it doesn't start raining. That's the last thing we need. If this flare gun didn't already get wet, that'll do the trick.""HENK.""That lightning's getting pretty close. Let's keep count and see how far away it is. Oh, there's a close one! Alright, let's see now... one... two..."

Rolled 10 (1d12)>>1561821Pokey turns around and accidentally hits the Sardak with his tail.
"You can't treat a woman like this! I have rights!""You are a female? I could not tell..."
"Could not t- believe me, buster, men... HUMAN men... can tell I'm a woman! Where I come from, men are always asking me out on dates!""Disgusting primates, always rutting and breeding like vermin!"

"Ugly brute! If you have cost me that strange primate I will have a mind to take a sword and-"
"No sign of him... and there's no way he could follow me through those streams. Looks like I'm in the clear... and those storm clouds are starting to break up!"
"But I'm not out of the woods yet... or the swamp, anyway..."

"Like they say, nothing ventured, nothing gained... and I'll take whatever I can gain right now."
"There... it's just ahead..."
"Looks like it's in that clearing... doesn't look like there's anyone around. Probably safe to move in for a closer-"
"What in the world- these structures are just like the ones in the Warrior People's sacred place..."

>>1562562fffffffffffffwelpNice job making me hooked on wondering what the fuck the story is here. And thanks for running, as always.
"I wish the Sardaks had invented tranquilizer darts..."
"Unnhgh... looks like you're back in the slammer, Adams... I wonder if they'll give me a last meal before I meet their 'Sardak Champion'..."
"Solid rock... a man would need a jackhammer to-"[metal clanging noise]"Primate!"

Rolled 1 (1d12)>>1562661Demand to be released
"Forget the visitor, I demand to be released! You slimy lizards can't get away with this!"
"You need to learn some respect, scum! Our whips will show you the proper way to address your appointed guards!"
"Leave us.""But-""I said to leave us."
"I wanted to thank you, Primate...""Thank me? Lylyth, you need to help me escape from this place somehow-""No, primate, there will be no escape for you. You will die beneath the blade of the Sardak Champion, as all primates before you have done, and I will use your crystal to gain power over my father the Emperor, and rise above my fated role."
"Lylyth, you traitorous-! When I get my hands on you-!"
"Goodbye, primate. I found your company... amusing."
"I hope I will find your death equally so."
That's it for now, but I'll be back in about eight or ten hours and we can keep playing!This last scene took a lot longer than I wanted because I shot the whole thing and then realized that Lylyth had a big wad of sticky-tack on her face in every shot...AHEMIf you liked this game, you can read almost all of the last seven years of Lego Quest over on suptg:http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=lego%20questThe Lego Quest wiki has writeups for Mike and Eve and even Pokey:http://legoquest.wikia.com/wiki/Lego_Quest_WikiAnd if you follow me on Twitter you'll get a tweet when this episode starts back up or when a new one begins:@EndmanOfFuturonGoodnight!

"Where's that two-bit emperor of yours? Couldn't make it to my big day?"
