The Daring Adventures of Ditto – Episode 10
Miss Narrator – Welcome once again to the Daring Adventures of Ditto, and here we are at episode ten! So amazing!
Ditto: Yes it episode 10, that’s pretty cool, but why is it amazing?
Miss Narrator: I just think It’s amazing that you’ve stuck with it so long… Sometimes I think the only reason you finish dinner is just to get to dessert.
Ditto: Hey that’s not… wait, there’s dessert involved? Are there cookies?
Miss Narrator: Sigh… See what I mean? Anyway, in our last episode Ditto and Madame Jasmine were introduced to the joys and wonders of Marleybone.
Ditto: And the joys of antibacterial hand sanitizer. Why did we have to get here during cold and flu season anyway?
Miss Narrator: Still seeking the strange and powerful Krokonomicon, Ditto and Madame Jasmine head to see the great Marleybonian detective Sherlock Bones, offering to lend a hand. Sherlock Bones tells Ditto that Marleybone has gotten a little rough and the local authorities need a hand cleaning up the streets.
Ditto: Have they tried formula 409? Maybe windex? Ajax?
Miss Narrator: Ha ha, yes, very clever. We get it, it’s dirty here – can we please move on?
Ditto: Sure, sorry.
Miss Narrator: So Sherlock Bones asks Ditto and Madame Jasmine for help in an area called Hyde Park, a really rough part of town, hoping that with a wizards’ help thy could clear out some of the nastier elements there. It’s just a short balloon ride across the rooftops.
Ditto: Weeee, balloon ride!! I jump on the cool airship thingy and putter across the rooftops, looking up at the big starlit sky. It’s so peaceful, the wind streaming through my fur… Just so calm, not stressful at all. I think I’m going to like Marleybone.
Miss Narrator: As soon as you get off the balloon ride, you are jumped by three thugs who surround you and demand your gold and treasure cards.
Ditto: Whoa, I guess dis is a pretty rough part of town, yikes!
Miss Narrator: The thugs surround Ditto and Madame Jasmine, looking menacing. Ditto raises his glowing ascendant staff and utters the words of power to cast WildFire, a glowing red aura surrounding the battle, infusing all his pyromancers spells with additional damage. With several powerful spells he takes out the attackers, sending them all scurrying across the rooftops like rats.
Ditto: Yeah take dat bad guys! Who, dat was rough. Well dey won’t be trying dat again!
Miss Narrator: Yeah, keep thinking that. So once off the balloon you find Lady Desane, a woman in obvious distress. She tells you that the rampaging hooligans have stolen a bunch of flowers from the local gardens and asks you to get them back so she can replant them.
Ditto: Really? You’ve got gangs of rampagins thugs and pickpockets and you’re worried about flowers?
Miss NArrator: Marleybonians really love their flowers!
Ditto: I guess so. Well OK, I’m supposed to be helping people, so sure, I’ll gladly help her find her flowers. It can’t be too hard, right? It’s just flowers – we’ve gotten way harder stuff than flowers right Jasmine.
Madame Jasmine: Bwaak
Ditto: Oh no way, dis is easy, it’s just finding a bunch of flowers…
Miss Narrator: As soon as you step off the platform and onto the next rooftop you’re surrounded by more menacing thugs.
Ditto: Oh come on! More? Seriously?
Miss Narrator: Again Ditto channels his might pyromancers energies, swirling tongues of flame around him in a mighty shield. As the thugs toss spells at him he and Madame Jasmine dodge and duck, then fire off a chain of mighty sun birds, scattering the thugs and again sending them running, tails singed and smoking.
Ditto: And don’t come back!! Jeeze what next?
Miss NArrator: After ten episodes are you really asking that?
Ditto: Uh, no – you’re right, I don’t want to know…
Miss Narrator: Ditto makes his way through Hyde Park – and several more street fights – until he meets up with Miss Conrail, a close friend of Sherlock Bones. She has been trying to take care of the rampant street crime that is plaguing Hyde PArk
Ditto: Uh, yeah, how’s that working for you?
Miss Narrator: And Ditto and Madame Jasmine are once again surrounded by a group of mean looking thugs!
Ditto: Are you kidding??
Miss Narrator: Yes I’m kidding this time – you won’t have to battle street thugs for at least another three and a half minutes…
Ditto: Oh bother…
Miss NArrator: Miss Conrail tells you that she has an informant named Baxter who can spill the beans on the whole criminal underground of Hyde Park! The trouble is, the criminals know he’s an informant and he’s gone into hiding. Ditto and Madame Jasmine are to search through Hyde PArk to find him and get the information he’s carrying – it is of vital importance to the rebellion! Help me Obi-Wan, you’re my only hope!
Miss Narrator: Will Ditto and Madame Jasmine get into more thrilling street fights? Will they find Baxter the informant and deal a crushing blow to the Empire? Join us again next episode for more daring adventures of Ditto!
Ditto: Why do I feel like these aren’t the droids I’m looking for??
