TREY: So, there he goes now, Colonel Forbin, climbing up the mountain, trying to find the Great and Knowledgeable Icculus. As he climbs up the mountain, he feels the whole mountain start to vibrate and shake like there’s an earthquake going on, as he gets closer and closer to the top, climbing up higher than anybody’s ever gone before. As it shakes, big huge boulders start to fall down and tumble down around him, and as he looks up he sees that where the boulders are falling out, it’s leaving sort of indentations in the mountain that make the whole top of the mountain look like a face.
So, one boulder falls out and leaves an eye socket and another, until the whole face starts to take the shape of an old man with a big white beard. The face itself looks down at Colonel Forbin and says, you know, “Colonel Forbin I know why you’re coming up here. I’m gonna try to help you.” He looks up, and the mountain has actually become the spirit of this guy Icculus. So Icculus calls his friend the Famous Mockingbird, who comes flying down out of the sky. He tells the Famous Mockingbird to fly to the castle of the evil king Wilson, steal the Helping Friendly Book, and bring it back to the people of Gamehendge. He sends him with a warning though. He says, “That having a book that tells you everything, that all the knowledge inherent in the universe, is not necessarily a good thing, and you better be careful.” But, that comes in later so right now the Famous Mockingbird is flying down and flying down out of the sky to Wilson’s castle to steal the Helping Friendly Book, and you can hear him coming down now, the Famous Mockingbird...
[“Fly Famous Mockingbird” continues to its conclusion, followed by a return to the “Theme” to provide Trey background sounds for the next narration segment.]
