Dread is the term they use – who’s they?
We’re all in this together, even if we’re apart
I’ll double back on myself all the time
You could listen to this, but you don’t have to
I just broke into poetry
Right, brain, rhyming, not poetry
Poetry-Based Pies (PBPs)
My brain has left the building
Sometimes it takes years between listens for someone to get it
I don’t even have a rocker to be off of
It’s important this show stays free in some form
Journey Into the World of Friends
What better place could there be to journey into than friendship?
I almost forgot I had to do this
The first role is friendship
I was blown away when I saw Antonio in the latest Indiana Jones movie
Some Sort of Joy Whoop
I was in a packed matinee showing in the 3rd week
Scooter and a squad of retirees
Antonio Introduces the Show
LVC slowly awakes
Slowly piecing things together
In a giant round tube, created by Grenada
Kind of friends, brought back together
Baron of the Boil also brought them back
We were building a campaign, but now we’re in the campaign
The Years of Honey & Rose & Bread Things
Maybe the Baron knew why the water became an issue
What is Vindul?
Is there more than one mage college?
BB’s son is with Vindul
Florence the Supreme Being
We literally journeyed into the World of Friends
Then we met Mary Bear and repaired some of the ride
BB failed to strongarm Vindul
If we can’t get BB’s son, we’re supposed to flood this area
I don’t understand how the freshwater locks play into this
BB is trying to dig out the water to access the power source
These ride characters can’t leave the area
Grenada found a note
Different runes for different powerful properties
If all the runes activate at once, all the locks will be undone
The runes are charging at the moment
Heading into a pretend hot air balloon
A key to the security room
Is this a boondoggle?
The animatronic’s music was beautiful and made me want to save them
Zel feels very strongly about these characters
It’d be great if we could just sneak in and get the key stealthily
Eleanor takes over
What’s the plan?
Grenada leads, Zel, Mary Bear, Watta, Eleanor – that’s the order
A lot of echo-y noise
The room is very dusty
The canal in the room is drained
All sizes of rocks and sand
Friends stuck together, moving as one sentient being
Mary Bear gives insight
These are Changed Friends, courtesy of Vindul
Vindul is changing the flow of the water
We need to find the balloon
Part of the roof has fallen in
Two bridges over the canals
A not friendly being is on that bridge
Another Ogre Type is not that far from the balloon
LVC checks in
Is there a way to sneak in on the east side?
I have a couple aches from sleeping in this tube
Watta shares Zel’s concern
We probably have to keep going forward
Mary Bear respects their feelings
LVC feels more than frustration
Throwing the Lanterns of Jackals
A way to express feelings
Mary Bear remembers a storage room
A storage room for holiday clothing
Grenada could stealthily get to a new part of the roof
A bridge underneath us
A rest area where non-friends are repairing each other
Does Watta know any levitation spells?
60/40 chance of victory in direct dance-off
Let’s do a Halloween disguise
Dressing up as non-friends
3 different sets of distractions
But I’m not sure how we meet up after that, or where we go
Mary Bear might be able to get the bigger toys to work with us
Or we could go through the drain
Through the drain back to the Handy Halls
Grenada and Watta climb away stealthily
The rest of them are dressing up
Zela and LVC slowly open the door
Watta is creating a wind distraction
Mary Bear is hugging some friends lying here
Mary Bear is talking to the friends
LVC is gonna sneak, in disguise, to the bridge
Maybe LVC will even sing the song
Watta and Grenada are ready to go
Walking like Franky
Uh oh, Watta just fell down
Grenada is grappling hooking to the balloon basket
LVC has to deal with 2 guards
Uh oh, toys are throwing rocks now
Everyone is trick or treating now
Grenada has the key
I’ll just keep yelling Pumpkin Smash
Backing into this room
LVC pulls Watta out of the canal
Cut off from Zel and Eleanor
Vidul will figure out what’s happening at some point
They’re heading towards the drain
Grenada is through the roof and gone
We didn’t figure out a meeting place, oops
Our costumes worked! Now they don’t know who’s who
Let’s try to get to the roof
Head towards the upper northeast corner skylights
Zel and Eleanor are on their own
No one saw them get down into the handy halls
Activity on the other side of a door
Let’s rest and evaluate things
Door is secured
We’ll reunite and will be well soon
Zel and Eleanor hold each other off to sleep

Episode 1204 – Pumpkin Mash | Journey Into the World of Friends Ep7
[START OF RECORDING]
SCOOTER: Friends beyond the binary, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, and my patron peeps, it’s time for the podcast, my patron peeps, my regular listeners, my Apple Podcast supporters, my new listeners…welcome to the show if you’re new. We got people that list…we got people that are listening to this, people that are sleeping to this, and a lot of people that are getting ready for bed and winding down, because it’s Sleep With Me. Oh, and especially brain bots. Brain bots are parts of us that are in our brains, or they could be feelings, physical sensations, that tend to keep us awake. They’re moving around. They’re always…they’re never in sleep mode. Brain bots; we don’t have sleep mode. We turn on, but we’re…during the day…whenever it’s quiet, we activate, but we’re never asleep; brain bots or other things that brain bots are a metaphor for. What’s a metaphor for?
So, welcome to Sleep With Me, the podcast that’s not here to put you to sleep. I’m here to keep you company because the deep, dark night can be really lonely for a lot of us. I’m here to take your mind off of stuff, whatever stuff is keeping you awake. It could be physical sensations, thoughts, feelings, whatever it is. I’m here to keep you company in the deep, dark night, to be your friend. This show is very different. It does take a few tries to get used to, so see how it goes. I’m so glad you’re here. We got some support coming up; that’s how we get to put the show out for free twice a week, then there’s a long, meandering intro meant to ease you into bedtime, and then there will be a bedtime story. So, I’m so glad you’re here. Welcome to Sleep With Me, the podcast that puts you to sleep. Thanks for making it possible, my patron peeps.
INTRO: [INTRO MUSIC] Hey, are you up all night tossing, turning, mind racing? Trouble getting to sleep? Trouble staying asleep? Well, welcome. This is Sleep With Me, the podcast that puts you to sleep. We do it with a bedtime story. Alls you need to do is get in bed, turn out the lights, and press Play. I’m gonna do the rest. What I’m going to attempt to do is create a safe place where you could set aside whatever’s keeping you awake. It could be thoughts, things on your mind, thoughts, thinking thoughts about the past, the present, the future. So, thoughts, it could be physical sensations, changes in time, temperature, routine, it could be feelings, whatever’s coming up for you. I’m here to take your mind off of stuff and keep you company so you could fall asleep. I do that for a couple of reasons, right?
One; I know how it feels tossing, turning, mind racing, trouble getting to sleep, trouble staying asleep. I know how that feels. I know the frustration or the negative anticipation. I don't know if that’s what you call it, but where you’re like…you know, what’s it gonna be like tonight? Dread I guess is the term they use. Who’s they? The term I use. But so, I know how it feels, and I might not know exactly what you’re going through. The reason I list a bunch of different things is because I want you to know you’re not alone, because I don't know if you’ve had this experience; you’ve been in a house full of people, you’ve had a roommate, you’ve had a partner, you’ve had a guest over, you got a pet, whatever it is. But when you can’t sleep, it does feel lonely. Sometimes…I live alone sometimes.
Sometimes my daughter’s not there and my dog’s not there, and it can feel lonely then, too. But the thing…this podcast is a reminder is that we’re together alone. I don't know, it’s pseudo-digital or whatever, but we’re all together and we’re in this together. Maybe all of us are a little bit different facet of that. What I mean by that is I might not know exactly what you’re going through, but I can probably relate to how it feels and say, yeah, that’s tough. That’s not easy. Even if I can’t, there is someone listening right now who can. So, that’s what I mean. We’re together and we’re alone or we’re lonely and together or alone…whatever…however you want to say it, 'cause I’ve never figured out a way to say it that makes any sense. But you get the gist of it, right? The other reason I make the show is even more important, which is you.
You deserve a place you could get some rest. You deserve the rest you need so your life is more manageable. You deserve a bedtime you don’t have to dread, that you could look forward to or at least feel neutral about. That’s what I want to provide for you, because the thing is if you’re getting the rest you need, your life is better…that means the whole world is a better place to be in, and that is true. It’s also important that it’s your world, and that’s important. Our world needs you, and it just needs…it doesn’t need you all at once being perfect or whatever. It just needs…it’d be nice for you to be in this world a little bit more rested, right, and it’d be nice for the world to have you here a little bit more rested. So, those are the reasons I make the show. What I do is I send my voice across the deep, dark night.
I’m gonna use lulling, soothing, creaky, dulcet tones, pointless meanders, and superfluous tangents, which means I’m gonna go off topic, I’m gonna get mixed up, I’m gonna forget what I was talking about, then I’ll…just like right there, and then…so, that’s what pointless meanders and superfluous tangents…is where I double back, say, what was I talking about? So, there’s that. Creaky, dulcet tones means my voice is just not traditionally soothing. This is a podcast you don’t really listen to, but you can listen to it. You could listen to it, but you don’t have to. So, that’s a little bit different at first. You’re kind of barely actively passive…you’re almost pass…a lot of people say active or passive is ‘either or’ or ‘neither nor’. But I’m just a bore that maybe one day you’ll barely adore. Sorry, I just broke into poetry there, or rhyme.
Yes, correct, brain; my brain said, that is not poetry. That was rhyming. Thank you. It was…could I say it was poetic rhyming? No, definitely not? Was that iambic pitameter? What do you call a pie-eating contest where you’re eating poetry-based pies? Not iambic pitameter. Okay. What do you call poetry…what do you call a pie made by a poet? Okay, my brain has now just left the building. So, what was I saying? Oh, this is a podcast you don’t…obviously…you say, there’s something to what he’s saying; it just never gets there. I’d say, iambic pitameter…I don't know tameters. That’s where…but if I knew what iambic…whatever. You know what I’m saying. So, this is a podcast you just barely listen to, like a friend talking that you’re not really paying attention to, but I don't care. You could say, oh, that’s funny, almost, Scoots.
That’s great. Yeah, I don't…I’m picturing poets eating pie now. Okay. So, it’s a podcast…kinda pass…a podcast you don’t…I don't know. Just like sand going through your hands, a out-of-focus picture…or a abstract painting out-of-focus I guess would be more accurate. Also, this is a podcast that doesn’t put you to sleep. When I first started making this podcast, there wasn’t really sleep podcasts. Now there’s a ton of them. But this is a sleep podcast that doesn’t put you to sleep. I’m here to keep you company while you fall asleep. That’s what never worked for me about other sleep audio; it didn’t put me to sleep, and I kept thinking about that and I couldn’t get over it. That’s why these shows are over an hour. No pressure to fall asleep.
There’s people who listen to this show who can’t sleep at all or who need a break during the day. So, I’m here for them to the very end, but that also means you don’t…I’m here for you even if you’re not listening to me. So, that’s really the…it’s a conundrum. I’m here to be your bore-friend, your bore-bae, your bore-sib, your bore-bud, your neigh-bore, your bore-bor, your Borbie, your bores, your bore-bruh, your bore-bestie, your friend, and just keep you company while you fall asleep, to take your mind off of stuff, to be a friendly presence. Now, the other thing about that is that most people don’t like me at first or don’t understand and they get frustrated, or they get here and they’re skeptical. So, if you’re feeling that way, that’s very understandable, because this show is very different.
It takes a few tries to get used to, and that’s what just lots and lots and lots of people over the past ten years have told me; it took a few tries to get used to the show. Sometimes that’s over a year…years of…sometimes someone listens twice…this is not a common occurrence, but I’d say maybe 5% of listeners say, I’ll never listen to that man again. He’s not even…he doesn’t even have a rocker to be off of his rocker. Then a few years later maybe someone else recommends it or they try it again and they’re in a little bit different space, and they say, oh, now I get it. He was serious. We don’t listen to him and he doesn’t put you to sleep, and that’s what really works about the show. So, give it a few tries and see how it goes.
You really have nothing to lose, and here’s the other thing; not only do you have nothing to lose if you give this show a few tries. If it doesn’t work for you or you’re already 100% sure — and that’s pretty common, too — that you don’t like me or the show or that it’s not for you, sleepwithmepodcast.com/nothankyou has other sleepy stuff on there. So, give that a try, alright? There’s other sleep podcasts and other stuff on there you could check out to put you to sleep, so check those out. What else do we got? Sleep With Me…it doesn’t put you to sleep, most people don’t…oh, structure of the show also throws people off, so I’ll tell you about the structure of the show. It starts off with a greeting; friends beyond the binary, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, and then I say a few other things so you feel seen and welcomed in.
You say, I might check that podcast out. Then there’s support, ad support, so the show can be free, because honestly, there’s a lot of work that goes into this podcast and there’s a lot of people that get a lot out of listening to the free show, and that’s important to me, is as many people benefiting from the podcast as it can. Then there’s the intro which is meandering. I go on and on and on. The intro isn’t so much meant to put you to sleep but to ease you into bedtime and introduce you to the show and to be a buffer before the bedtime story. You could use it as part of your wind-down routine, your getting-ready-for-bed routine, your in-bed-getting-comfortable routine, or you could fall asleep, or you could skip it and start the show at twenty or thirty minutes.
But for…as you become a regular listener, you’ll kinda see what works for you. But for most people it’s something that eases them into bedtime. I tuck you in in a little bit. Then there’s support again, and then there will be our bedtime story. Tonight will be our episodically modular series, Journey Into the World of Friends, about friends playing a game together or…well, they were creating a game and then they kinda became a part of the game. But they’re really journeying into the world of friendship. What could be a better place to journey into the world of? So, that’ll be a nice story, then there’s thank-yous at the end. So, that’s the structure of the show and why I make the show. I’m really glad you’re here. I work really hard. I yearn and I strive, and I really hope we can help you fall asleep. Thanks again for coming by, and here’s a couple ways I’m able to do this for free twice a week.
Hey everybody, this is Scoots. I almost forgot that I was supposed to introduce our podcast here, our episodically modular series, Journey Into the World of Friends. What could be more sleepy than friends playing…building, playing, and now fully-immersed in a…I think that’s what’s happening…in a game, a roleplaying game. They’re playing roles, but their first role is friendship, and they’ll kinda set everything up because they usually have a meeting. Yeah, so…yeah, let’s go from here to our…whoa, boy. Sorry to slow things down even further, but talk about an adventure in friendship and friendly faces. My dial of destiny was the…all hands on the clock were pointed towards amazement, because he’s so humble he didn’t…he doesn’t hype it up.
I thought I was blown away when I saw him on the challenge, but when I saw Mr. Antonio Banderas on…in Indiana Jones…and honestly, I guffawed and I made some sort of joy whoop. I think some poet once called it that. I don't know who it was, but I think they had a better term for it. But some utterance, an involuntary utterance of joy, came out of my mouth. I’m not kidding, Antonio. Good thing I was going to a matinee that was actually full. So, great news; this is in…I couldn’t be there the first two weeks; I’m sorry. But I wanted to make sure you got that third-week bump. My theatre was packed. I guess it wasn’t tech…well, I can’t remember if the ticket was a matinee. It was 4:45 PM and it was me and a squad of retirees hiding out from the heat, man. But you brought the heat.
If you ever want to go swimming, holy cow, you are…anyway, so, by the way, I’m saying that in the Indian Jones Dial of the Destiny…you got Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Antonio Banderas in addition to a huge…I mean, Harrison Ford and an amazing cast. So, holy mackerel. I’m not speechless, 'cause I can’t be speechless on a sleep podcast, but here’s Mr. Antonio Banderas. The friends beyond the binary, the ladies, the gentlemen, the boys and girls, it’s time, tick, tock, for your destiny to be dialed in to friendship. Journey Into the World of Friends. Yippee-ay-ee. Thank you, my friend. That was very kind, and all the listeners, thank you so much. That’s Mr. Antonio Banderas, and this is Journey Into the World of Friends, everybody.
Okay, okay, what in the name of me being Your Grace…? Okay, everybody else is still slowly stirring. At least I’m cuddled here with Grenada of Darmok, and we seem…okay, just piecing things together. Your Grace, Lord von Chill, is piecing things together, everybody. I’m going to stay in character as that’s how I’m able to handle what’s happening. We are in a giant, round tube that we used a pulley system created by Grenada of Darmok to climb up into, and then we tested it to make sure it was secure, and then we realized we would need a night of rest before we headed in and also to kinda let things calm down. We did make our way towards this next room. Let me actually review things. This is Your Grace. I see you’re all…no one…I’ll just review things. I’ll try to give us a little recap, a full recap, okay, while everybody’s waking up.
Thank you, Grenada of Darmok, for that…that was not a careless whisper in my ear, but…okay, so, we were…we are adventurers, a party of adventurers. Some would say we’re friends, though we’ve…we had gone our separate ways after another adventure. We were brought together once again by Watta, our wizard, bold and intelligent, keen and cunning, Watta, and…to take on…well, we were also brought together by the Baron of the Boil. That’s where it gets complicated. Originally we were building a campaign to practice friendship and adventuring for other adventurers, and as part of that campaign we were called together by the Baron of the Boil, the beloved leader of Florida, the state of sun, who was…had finally taken over control of the water flow from the north to the south to make sure it was mostly freely distributed.
The Baron had come out on top. But then, after years of…good years, you know, whatever they call them, years of honey and rose or whatever and bread and things, the water flow started to deteriorate and no one knew why. But maybe the Baron…now I’m realizing maybe the Baron of the Boil had an idea or an inkling. ‘Cause it turned out, Vendul, old…what do you call that? A foundling of…is that what Vendul is? Nobody knows the…Vendul part…cool-blooded part, warm-blooded, possibly, a wizard also, a powerful, powerful wizard, very well…went to the best mage college. I don't know, Watta, is there more than one mage college? University; excuse me. But my family owns a few universities, Watta. No, I’m kidding. That’s a underestimate.
Anyway, so, Vendul, it turns out, was behind this water flow, but we didn’t really know more. So, we ventured here to the park, the Land of Leisure, on a mission from the Baron of the Boil, because the Baron of the Boil’s son had gone on an adventure, ostensibly to stop Vedul and to restore the free flow of water. What we’ve learned since then is the Baron of the Boil’s son fell into the hands of Vedul. We don’t know the state of that…the Baron of the Boil, though we do know the state of two adventurers, at least, from that party, who are — depending on how you view things — with one or three or four of the Florences, maybe the…Florence the Supreme Being, who I know…I realize is…Eleanor, is one of the…a supreme being.
We found a note…oh, so, we went into the Journey…we journeyed into the Journey Into the World of Friend…we journeyed into the World of Friends, 'cause the old attraction based on friends that sing a famous song, rebooted twice…attractions I guess spread around the globe, but this one in the World of Leisure is where we were. We also had a mission…if we couldn’t fulfill our mission…I may not be remembering everything correctly, but to…oh, 'cause there’s also a well of magic, which we are familiar with. Otherworldly…no, not magic; okay. Otherworldly power underneath the park here. That’s why all the parts of this attraction have come to life. All the characters in the attraction are alive and sentient, and it’s very complicated how that happens, but probably something like a well of…a soul well.
We met Mary Bear who was helping…we helped repair some of the parts of the ride, and we…Mary Bear begged us not to set the…oh, 'cause…so, we were also tasked with…if the Baron of the Boil tried to strong-arm Vedul…that did not work. So, if we could not defeat Vedul and get the Baron of the Boil’s son, we were to set the things to flood this area so that the well of otherworldly magic could never be accessed and that eventually it would also restore the free flow of water. Because here on the other side of the park, powered by the sea and giant seawalls…I don't understand that part, but…are these locks that control the freshwater flow that have been shut off or something. Now, we learned…the reason they were shut off is 'cause the Baron of the Boil is trying to dry out the water and dig out this power source.
I’m really going on here. But this is what we need to know. Plus, everybody’s still waking up or falling back asleep, and…which is great. Nobody needs to wake up here at all. Nobody needs to. I’m just running through this and…because I guess I’ll take lead this week. They don’t…nobody calls me Your Grace or My Grace for nothing. Okay, so, that was what our plan was; defeat Vedul, save the Baron of the Boil’s son, save the world. If we had to set the area to flood, we would do that, too, and we were willing to up until recently, where our party kinda split on…hey, these are sentient…these are ride characters that are sentient. They can’t leave the area. They’re somehow physically connected…they can only exist within their attraction.
So, if we were to flood the area, this attraction and other attractions which we can presume have gained some sentience as well…so, we were debating that when Grenada of Darmok found a note on one of the Baron of the Boil’s adventuring parties saying, hey, we put these runes into this thing or this magic device and already started the process of…I guess they’re runes that…I don't know. Watta, you kinda explained it to me. There’s different runes for different properties, powerful properties, and if all the runes activate at once, then that would cause the undoing of all the locks and the entire area. So, they’re pulling magic, I don't know, from the air or something. So, they’re charging, I guess. We talked about this late into the night while everybody else was sound asleep. It put me right to sleep, eventually.
Thanks, Watta. But those runes had been activated by the Baron of the Boil’s son’s party, and now we say, well, should we deactivate it? We don’t know what to do. I guess in some sense now we don’t have to choose. We still have to complete our two missions, ideally, and then we could shut off the thing. If we don’t shut it off…either way, it sounds like the world’s in great shape now. All will be well, as Emma Otter once said. So, what we’re doing now, why we’re sleeping in…this is from climate control, is what they called these back in the before-time. This giant tube we’re in is in the ceiling of Journey Into the World of Friends, and we’re going to navigate it into the next room.
Hopefully my voice isn’t carrying, but I think your bodies are in the way, so…and I’m not…I’m using my indoor voice, my quiet indoor voice, anyway. But so, we’re gonna go into this next room which was…which I guess is the finale of the ride, Watta was explaining to me, and somewhere in that room is a…and Mary Bear said, probably still up in the ceiling is a pretend hot-air balloon. In the basket of the hot-air balloon is a key to the security room underneath this attraction. I guess we’re in a little bit…is this part…is this one of these boondoggles…is part of the adventure. Is there a more efficient way to do this adventure than getting this key and going to the security room, then we still…? I mean, we do have time, but Mary Bear made it clear that that would be…we’re gonna need more resources if we want to defeat Vedul.
Also, we learned that these sentient beings can produce beautiful music and dance, and that touched my heart and made me want to fix thing…complete all our missions and not save the world at the expense of these sentient ride…friends; sorry. Thank you for correcting me. At our friends, even though…they’re called friends. Zell feels very strongly about them because as I know, Zell sleeps with stuffies, and these are like little stuffed animals. A little bit bigger than stuffed animals; the size of a child. They are aged, but they are still cute. So, we’re gonna go into this room. Ideally…perfect; we’re in the ceiling. It’d be great if we could just sneak in with stealth, get the key, and go from there. I think that’s everything. Is there anything else I’m missing? Oh, what else? I think that caught us up.
Oh no, yeah, there was…Vedul’s…they…some of Vedul’s minions came because they saw Mary Bear and they knew Mary Bear had been in another place. So, Mary Bear is starting…what do they call that? A word-of-mouth to let other toys know…oh, Mary Bear’s behind us? Oh, hey, Mary Bear. Oh, 'cause you’re gonna go in the room and…okay, Mary Bear is wearing a vest and a alpine hat, looking like an alpine…are those Lederhosen? Okay, they are. So, Mary Bear is gonna spread the word to the other friends. Sorry, sometimes I call you toys, but I know you’re friends, Mary Bear. So, that’s our plan. Oh, so, that’ll help create a distraction for us. It’s also a clock for our friends. Now Vedul’s gonna know the friends are up to something. But as far as we know, they don’t know we’re here. I think that’s everything.
So, does anybody have anything…? Okay, go ahead, go ahead, Eleanor. Yeah, so, what’s…what should our plan be? Well, I’d say if we go…I’d say, Grenada, why don’t you go first and we’ll slowly follow behind at a distance? Maybe I’ll go last just…and Mary Bear, you could be in-between us. Mary Bear, why don’t you…why don’t we go Grenada, Zell, Mary Bear, Eleanor, Watta, and I? How does that sound to everybody? Okay. Grenada, why don’t you…? Okay, so, yeah, I’m proceeding…okay, good…okay, so far, so good…very stealthily, and…the first thing I notice is a lot of noise, echoey noise; banging, hammering, clanking, raised voices, like a hum of activity. Okay, now I’m at a junction, and we’ve seen these junctions in other places where we had to climb over it, but I’m gonna look down in this junction and see what I can see.
Okay, I can’t get a full…the room is very dusty and it…I can’t get a full view of the room. I just looked down and came back. Don't worry; I’m not talking while my head’s down there. But what I can see is that the canal that runs through the center of the room is drained. In the canal, the part I can see, is full of different…some big rocks, some small rocks, some piles of sand, and there’s friends working on the rocks, but there’s also…Mary Bear, maybe you could help us with this. There’s friends that are…friends stuck together but they’re moving around like they’re one sentient being, one of which is very, very large. Mary Bear, could you help us?
Yeah, this is Mary Bear; those are changed friends, changed at the hands of Vedul by some sort of magic process where…it’s called the Voltron, and that’s what Vendul does, is Voltron the…or it might…Vedul says something like, Voltron mighty morphin’ something else. There’s different size…one we call a giant friend which is many, many friends into one body, and most of those friends were taken from other rooms that are a little bit more empty now. Then there’s big friends which are not as big as the giant friends, and those friends have…Vedul also has…not total control over them, but an influence over them.
They kind of just are what we’ve been told when we’ve…I’ve tried to secretly communicate with them, is that there’s just a dull buzz. So, they just do what Vedul says, which is…and then there’s ones that are about the size of all of you, which we just…we don’t have a name for them. You’re kinda like human-sized friends but that’s too long, so we just say ‘those friends’. So, the three different-sized friends are actually…yeah, someone said they’re moving in and out of this room. They take these giant rocks that outside of the attraction Vedul is extracting from somewhere using other non-ride beings. But because were so plentiful, they bring the rocks in and then we change the sizes.
So, the larger friends carry the rocks and then they bring them to a northern part of the ride where apparently…so, Vedul’s using it to re-flow the water and dry out areas, and then also taking rocks as they dig out…someone’s actually said…I believe someone who is…has become a friend who was one…and actually, they’re a seal. They said that this is not rocket…I don't know, core of some…quarrel. So, that’s what’s happening, is they’re changing the size of rocks to fit what Vedul needs the rocks for, or making them into dust which also Vedul needs, 'cause Vedul’s trying to change the flow of the water. Okay, that’s interesting. Thank you, Mary Bear. Okay, so, we can’t…Grenada, you can’t see the balloon, huh? Okay; no. So, we need to find the balloon. Grenada, why don’t you go down the…?
Mary Bear, you said the balloon…right now we came in the east side of the room, right? I can’t remember; is it in the south? Or where is the rock? I wrote it down somewhere…we were discussing our ideas. Okay, so it should just be north of us, right? ‘Cause we’re already in the room. So, why don’t you take that junction to the right, Grenada, and see where that goes, and then come back? But don’t do anything, okay? Okay. Okay, Grenada, you…okay, so, Grenada’s back. Okay, Grenada, what do you see? Okay, good news; not great news. So, I went a bit further and not that far down…and that’s kinda why the sounds are so clear…there’s a…the roof and part of the attraction has fallen in, and…but I can see the balloon. But the balloon is right above…so, there’s two bridges over the canals.
I got a better view now that I know what I’m looking at from Mary Bear. So, there’s two…so, on the west wall is a giant opening, and that’s where some of the rocks are coming in. Now, not that far from the giant opening is a ramp down to the canal where they’re working on the rocks, and a ramp up, and then there’s a bridge, one bridge going north to connect out another giant opening where they must be bringing the rocks out, and on that bridge is some sort of being, maybe something not friendly. So, let me see, I did try…it’s dark in there. Yeah, so, on the bridge, the northern bridge, are two…a little bit bigger than us…I don't know, orgs? Ogres? I don't know.
Then there’s also a giant and human-size and mid-size of these large friends, then there’s kind of a peninsula, right, where the northern bridge comes out of, and on the peninsula there’s also…at each…there’s a up-ramp and a down-ramp on either side of the bridge; one going down on the left side of the bridge, the west side, and one coming up on the east side or the right side of the bridge, and they’re kinda curved because there’s big rocks. There’s also two orgs or ogres or whatever, and they’re mostly encouraging the hard work of the friends. Then on the other side of the bridge near the big opening is another ogre type not that far from the balloon. Like, from…if they looked up, they could easily see the hot-air balloon, though a lot of times they do have their back to it.
Now, below us…I can’t see what’s below us, and I could just barely see that there’s another bridge to the west and below us. So, there’s probably other…and there’s activity there, too. Okay, Lord von Chill here; so, this is not…huh. So…oh no, what do you mean…? Okay. Well, let’s…so, at this junction…huh. Not sure what we should do then, because we have to get…it looks like we need to learn more. Grenada, what if you went to the…? So, this kinda thing falls apart, our tube falls apart up there, you’re saying, where the roof fell in. Could you see if there’s any way for us to sneak in on the east side? So, on the right side and…so that you could…could you and…I don't know, Eleanor or Zell try to get it in there and see if you could see what’s under us and see if you could stealthily get in that room? Yeah, we could do that.
Okay, so, let’s…I just gotta say, though, before we try, I do have a concern that I haven’t spoken about. This is Grenada of Darmok, and, you know, Timba when the walls fell, but…or Timba…the thing is that this is very strange, right? We used to be making this game. Now, as far as I’ve been able to tell because a few days have passed at least in the game, we’re actually here. This room seems to have quite the level of peril so I’m just wondering what’ll happen to us, because we haven’t really been involved in any trouble, right? I mean, a minor amount of it. I do feel…really, my…from sleeping in this tube, I have a couple aches, you know? I’m just…I guess I’m baffled. I don't know if that’s the right word. Does anybody else feel that way? This is Watta; I’m…I understand how you’re feeling.
I feel frustrated, yeah, and I share your concern. Does anybody else…? Yeah, this is Eleanor; I also…yeah, I also…I’ve been in touch with the Florences, so I have a little bit of comfort with this, but yeah, I don't…I just…this is Zell; could I just add, I’m feeling the same thing, but I kinda feel like we’re passed…we’ve passed a point, you know? Where…and I’m not…Grenada, Watta, Eleanor, I totally understand…Mary Bear is actually staring at us while we’re talking about this. So, I think we’ve passed a point of…so, I don't know what to do. I’m at a loss, too, but alls I know is we have to probably go forward, because now, as we know, there’s not…doing nothing’s not an option, so…Lord von Chill, I guess everybody’s saying how they feel. Okay, Mary Bear, how are you feeling?
This is Mary Bear; you know the situation we’re in, so I’m having trouble relating to your feelings, but I can respect them. Lord von Chill here; I feel more than frustration. I feel like…pumpkin crashing is how I feel, if I could put action to my feelings. What’s pumpkin crashing? Pumpkin crashing is when you take a pumpkin…you know when they celebrate the All Hallows Eve, right? Oh yeah, Mary Bear knows about it, even. So, All Hallows Eve is this thing…have you all celebrate…? You’re familiar. Okay. You’ve seen the films or you celebrate it. One of the things we would do is go up to the ramparts and…'cause they had the lanterns of jackals, right?
We would throw…at the end of All Hallows Eve, at the strike of the end of the night and the beginning of the day, we would throw the pumpkins off the ramparts, the lanterns of jackals, and we would say, pumpkin smash, pumpkin crash. It was relieving, but it was also…it was part of our family’s belief system. Anyway, I don't…we don’t have…I don't want to get into that 'cause there’s even stronger feelings there. But it was a way to express my feelings. Mary Bear, go ahead. Yeah, it just made me think of something. There’s a storage room that…I think it was one of those junctions back there. It’s actually in the wall between the two rooms where they would store the…'cause this would have a overlay of…for Halloween…they would dress us up for Halloween and for…what do they call that?
Christmas holiday…for Christmas and Hanukkah and Kwanzaa, they would dress us up and we would celebrate…and New Years, and they…all that stuff was stored in a storage room in-between the two buildings. It’s still there, because sometimes I go there when I’m looking for extra parts. So, I don't know, maybe the storage door…I didn't even think about it because you’d have to go…you could get in, but then you’d have to go down the…between the two walls. But you could make more noise, probably, 'cause the walls would dampen it. There should be a door into this room from the storage room. The door for our room is blocked, so I would have…that’s back when I was better at climbing, but I can’t climb anymore. Okay. Okay, Lord von Chill here; I’m thinking of an idea.
I’m thinking we should…okay, here’s what we’re gonna do. Grenada, can you go see if you can into the room and just do some more scouting for us? Then I’m formulating a plan or options, if everybody’s okay with that. Okay, Grenada’s…oh, you’re already back, Grenada. Okay, yeah, so, Grenada of Darmok here; so, I could…I did stealthily get in. I was able to get from this conduit to part of the roof and do that fairly quietly. I don’t think all of us as a party would be able to do that, but I could see the rest of the room. Underneath us is a bridge. There’s a rest area against the eastern wall with a lot of friends. That’s where they rest, or…and it looks like they’re repairing one another, maybe, Mary Bear? Mary Bear is nodding enthusiastically. So, that’s where they go when they’re not working with these coral or whatever.
There’s also other orgs or ogres or whatever keeping an eye on stuff. Not on the resting ones, but more on the work activity. I could also see the balloon. So, I think that me and someone else that’s very nimble or has powers in case…do you know any levitation spells, Watta? I think we…I think I…okay, tell us more of what you’re thinking. Well, Lord von Chill, what was your plan? Okay, that was my plan, was…here’s the thing; we got a couple options. I was running some numbers in my head, and you’re saying there’s between six and eight ogres or orcs. You’re not sure. Either way…and there’s probably one that’s…you said there’s a couple that are bigger, right? Now, so, the best-case scenario, if we were to charge in…if the larger friends were passive, we would still barely…we’re at a 50/50.
I mean, I say 60/40 for us chance of victory if there’s…no one else comes for backup and none of the friends do anything. Maybe 70…I mean, I’m pretty confident, but I’m still saying best-case scenario, it’s 70/30, but we’d still…even at 70/30, we’d need some rest. With those giant openings and stuff, I just don’t see that happening. Now, of course I’m concerned for Grenada of Darmok. I have strong feelings for Grenada of Darmok and of Watta. But if you could get there, we could go down…I’m thinking…this is what I’m thinking; All Hallows Eve. Now, this isn’t normally a plan I would come up with, but Scooby that wrote the other adventure, always had…it was part of…Space Whales and Trick-or-Treating; I think that was one of their autobiographies.
We go down, we dress up like friends, like we’re amalgamated friends or whatever it is; large, human-sized friends, and we act the part. Now, Mary Bear goes and helps some of the friends and maybe spreads the word. So, we’ll split up. I’ll go by myself to the lower bridge. Zell and Eleanor, you sneak…if you can…this would be just best-case scenario, right? If you could get into the canal, then get towards the main bridge, right…but from the canal…huh. It’s gonna be…it’s gonna take some risk. But that way, everyone would be looking down to the south, right? Okay, no, I’ll do the first distraction. I’ll just trick-or-treat on the bridge. I’ll get in the room if we can get into the room. There’s a lot of assumptions here. But this is also a flexible plan. I’ll create a southernmost distraction on that bridge.
During the first distraction, Watta and Grenada, you get as close as you can and see what way you’re gonna get to the balloon, right? I could tell, Grenada, you want to use levitation or whatever that thing is with the hook. Grappling hook; you love that grappling hook. So, after I’ve created my distraction and the orcs or the orgs start to react to it…but I’m not gonna try to do anything. Then Mary Bear, if you could create a distraction…if not…so then we’re creating three different sets of distractions if we can, while you’re getting the keys. Now, the next thing would be us getting out of the room and meeting back up, and I don't know what we would do or what…I don't even know where we should go next, actually.
Or we start and we work our way…we deal with everybody in the room, hope the toys…Mary Bear, do you think you could get the bigger toys to work with us? Not sure. Okay. Hopefully they…okay, so again, 70/30, Mary Bear says, that they would be passive. So, that’s not worth the risk. ‘Cause I was gonna say we could just power through it then go through the large northern hole into the next room, but Mary Bear, you said there’s some sort of underground thing? What about getting to the roof? Is that possible, Grenada? Do you think that’s possible? It could be possible. Okay, so why don’t we do that? Okay, so how would…? You two would get to the roof…okay, so then I guess we have a couple other options.
We could go back through…okay, yeah, I guess we would either try to get to the roof, try to get out back through the storage room, and…or Mary Bear…okay, go ahead, Mary Bear. There’s also…yeah, you could go through somewhere maybe covered by rocks, but it is in a…is the drain for where they would drain the water out of. Now, that’s the drain that…same drain you saw in one of the Handy Halls, where there are beings down there. But the worst-case scenario; you could try to go through the drain, and that I can…I write out a map for you to get to the…where you need to go to get to…access the security room. But also, yeah, some of the light is provided by these clear, plastic domes. So, I think Grenada and Watta could get to that room as well, or you could all get there. Okay, so, let’s try it, then.
What does everybody think? Okay, so let’s do some basic maths. Okay, okay, so…okay, so…oh boy, I shouldn’t have looked at the math before we acted. Okay, but we have to go. Okay, so we’re gonna go down. Grenada, can I give you…? Yes, see you soon. Watta, best to you. Okay, so, they’re going out and trying to climb and get ready. Okay. Now we’re going down, now we’re dressing up…okay, this is pretty cool. There’s a lot of stuff we could dress up as. Okay, now…okay, getting this door open is unexpectedly difficult, and it’s gonna take Zell and I a bit of repeated effort. That is a lot of noise. Oh, I’m hearing some other noise, though. So, Watta must have known…Watta’s creating some sort of wind noise. Okay, so…okay, we got the door open.
Okay, let’s slowly…okay, nobody noticed except for the friends…oh, Mary Bear, go ahead. Mary Bear is hugging some of the friends that are lying here. Oh yeah, and we’re kind of shaded from the caved-in roof from view. That’s why the friends are laying around. Mary Bear is talking to the friends and nodding to us and nodding and thumbs-upping. Half-halfing me? Okay, yeah…oh, by my costume. I forgot I was trick-or-treating. Okay, so, Zell and Eleanor…okay, yeah, let’s hug. Okay. Yeah, no, this is…friends. We’ll do this together. It’ll be okay, as Emma Otter said. So, I’m gonna go down and go…the bridge comes across to here, so I’m gonna go down…sneak…walk down to that bridge. I’m watching how they’re moving; very simply. I’m gonna walk and then go up to that guard on the bridge and say, hey, I’m trick-or-treating.
But I’ll try to use a friend’s voice. Maybe I’ll even sing the friend song. Welcome to the World of Friends. Come on in, or whatever it is. Then you two head to the…when I get down there…this is perfect; you’ll be able to fall right into the thing, the canal, up against this part of the roof that fell in. Okay, it looks like Watta and Grenada are ready to go. So, I’m gonna go. I’m gonna…I’m trick-or-treating. Just gonna walk here like Frankie, right? Let me put my arms out like I’m Frankie. Oh yeah, I’m a friend. I’m trick-or-treating…trick-or-treating. What am I doing? I’m trick…get back to work? Trick-or-treating. Trick-or-treating. Is there something wrong with this, friend? Okay, call…trick-or-treating. Yeah, call over the other worker or the other guards. Trick-or-treating. Okay, Zell and Eleanor are in there.
Okay, and they’re…okay, they’re at the bottom…oh boy, that’s not good. Watta just fell down. Now everybody’s looking over. Watta looks okay. Grenada threw the grappling hook and got the…hooked on the basket, but…oh, there goes Eleanor and Zell. They seem to be trick-or-treating. Now, at least…oh, now I’m…better roll the dice, 'cause these two guards are attempting to deal with me. Luckily these two are just entry-level, so this is not gonna be too much of a…ooh, ouch, but…okay, Eleanor…I can do both things. It seems to be that…okay, they’re…okay, they’re focused on…oh, now the…okay, now the toys are…oh wow, they’re throwing those rocks. So, Mary Bear…oh, everybody’s pretending to trick-or-treat. That’s a trick.
So, this is working. I’ll just keep…I’m not gonna move down here, 'cause they’re…now I have three…well, two dispatched and one more headed towards me. Eleanor and Zell are okay, and it looks like Watta is just…okay, Watta has…is one-on-one. Oh no, Grenada’s now in the basket of the balloon and has the key. Okay, and now Grenada’s using…okay, Grenada’s helping Watta. Okay, they only have one to deal with. Okay, so, we didn’t have a symbol, so I’ll just make a pumpkin smash. I’ll just keeping yelling that very loudly; pumpkin smash. Oh, now everybody’s yelling it. I’m backing up towards this room here. Okay, I’m the only one. Hi, Mary Bear. Thanks for starting that…okay, so, I’m gonna have to go back in here and…oh, there’s…okay, Grenada’s going to the roof.
Okay, Watta, yeah, let me…Watta jumped in and is coming around. Watta, let me pull you out of the canal, here. But we are cut off from Zell and…what do you call it? Sorry, Eleanor. Okay, so, what if we…? We could use range. Oh, Thunder Wave; that’s a great idea. I’ll nod with my head and say, pumpkin smash. They could go through the bottom there. Oh, okay, whoa boy, this is good; the large…now, at some point, Vedul’s gonna know what’s happening. But actually, I was…splitting it three different ways is great. Okay, they’re headed towards the drain. Okay, so, we will keep…I’ll keep using my bow and arrow, my trusty bow and arrow. Okay, Grenada’s through the roof and gone, and hopefully totally safe. We didn’t really come up with a meeting place. That was a hole in my plan.
I mean, the next room, which we all have…oh, Mary Bear gave us mats, at least. Okay, so…okay, they’re…okay, now…it is a bit chaotic here. So, they don’t…oh, they didn’t realize…okay, our costumes worked, so they didn’t realize…okay, so this is good. Now they don’t know who’s who. So, let’s get outta here. Mary Bear, you gonna be okay? Just do our part; okay. Yeah, I don't think we should…we can’t get to the drain. There’s too many ogres. So, we should…they’re gone. Okay, let’s go, Watta. We’ve made our getaway, and we’ll…okay, Watta, let’s…yeah, let’s close that door up. We could…good thing we left these ropes here. Maybe we could try to get to the roof and meet up with Grenada. Hopefully Watta and…I’m sorry, Watta. Yeah, okay…yeah, I could help you climb. No worries.
Yeah, I did take a couple…yeah, so, do you have a…? Oh, you do have a potion. Thank you. Okay, so, we’re climbing up. So, do you think we could get to the roof? ‘Cause Grenada said not sure. Oh, Grenada’s…I can see Grenada. Okay, they don’t see us 'cause it’s so chaotic down there. Okay, thank you…oh, there’s the grappling hook. Okay, so, we’ll climb across? Okay, Watta…oh, you’re gonna levitate because you fell last…oh, you did levitate. Wow. Okay, I’m gonna go. Oh, I’m swinging, okay. I’m holding…now I’m rappel…is this…? Oh no; it’s going up. Okay, I’m climbing. Hello, Grenada. So good to see you, Watta. Let’s have a group hug. So, we’re on the roof. We could make our way towards…we’re supposed to head…this roof is pretty empty. This is the only big hole in it.
We want to head towards the upper-northeast corner skylights. Yeah, hopefully they’ll find us. I wonder what Zell and Eleanor are doing right now. Okay, Zell, we’re in here. Now, the good news is I don't think anyone noticed us getting in here because of the large rocks and the fact that the giant friends were throwing rocks. I think they were follow…because we didn’t really engage that much. They were more focused on Watta and Lord von Chill. But do you think we should put some distance…? We could follow this path from Mary Bear for a ways. Okay, so, we’re gonna head this way, and then I believe we’re gonna go right here. No; left here. No, I believe left. Thank you, Zell. Thanks, yeah. Okay, at the next junction we’re gonna turn right. Okay, now there’s a door, and I hear activity on the other side of the door.
No, not talking. What if you go back…? ‘Cause we came through the other door that was open. Could you go back and seal that door and then put some noises on there? I think we should rest and evaluate things, 'cause we still have a little ways to go. But I don't think we should go through this door if they’re not gonna pursue us right now. You know what I mean? Okay, so let’s rest. You got that door secure? Okay, we’ll hear anybody coming. Okay, and we have it distant from us. Okay, so let’s rest here, then. I’m sure they’re all fine and I’m sure this is gonna work out great, so let’s rest together. Goodnight, Zell. Goodnight, Eleanor. Okay, yeah, we can…let’s hold one another. Yeah, I think so. This is a condition for holding, 'cause all will be well.
