- "Alas, Poor Yorick"
Fight Choreography by Mike Tyson
Ator has come a long distance to fight the high priest of the evil spider cult, a powerful magician and expert swordsman. In fact, it's his old master -- the guy who taught him! Uh-oh. The fight begins. The high priest raises his scimitar. Ator raises his magical, mirrored shield to deflect the first blow and *KA-POOM!* His opponent explodes instantaneously in a puff of smoke and flame. End of fight.
- Deus Ex Machina
Beware the Walking Dead
Ator and his female companion are on their way to seek the treasure-cave, but first they must cross the land of the Walking Dead. Ooo, spooky. They talk about how dangerous the Walking Dead are and that they hope they don't have to meet -- The Walking Dead. Wait, there they are! Shuffling figures with tattered armor and rusted weapons. The Walking Dead, oh no! Our heroes run for it, since nobody can hope to defeat...The Walking Dead. They run, run, run. The Walking Dead walk. The good guys run. The Walking Dead walk. Like Pepe Le Pew, the Dead seem to have no trouble keeping pace with their quarry. Ator and his friend rush down a mist-filled hollow. The Walking Dead start to follow, then, halfway through -- poof! They vanish. Ator's only comment: "They've disappeared. Let's go." Huh. How 'bout that.
