Our heroes, Captain Ytternal, AOLGuyDoomerX, Tassadar the defunct Colocarrier, and Wfawwer the flaming Overlord, are now on their way to find the first scarab and save Aiur! They show up in the first temple, only to be met by two forsaken Zealots. The Zealots, weary from the endless slaughter of Zerg they must wade through simply to cross Aiur's infested streets, do their best to lead the team into the deeper recesses of the temple. We see an old Dragoon being held together with bonding crystals, the Protoss equivalent of duct tape, and a High Templar making do with a bloody Hydralisk mattress for his afternoon nap. Soon, the exhausted Zealots lead us into the chamber of an elder. He is not the Preserver of the seven scarabs, but instead a lesser being here to aid us in our quest. His name is none other than, Preserver Oak.
Preserver Oak brings us four khaydarin based "Ihan Crystals". These crystals, like the one used by Jim Raynor, contain the memories of four different species. There is one for each element of fire, water, grass, and electricity. Being the team leader, I chose the electric crystal. Preserver Oak nods to his Zealots warriors, and they leave the room. Moments later, the High Templar floats in with a machine not unlike a portable gateway. It is a Xel' Naga reconstruction device. I place the crystal within the machine, and it gives birth to a small energy being. Preserver Oak tells me that it is an Archon merged from the Xel' Naga's first Protoss experiments, also known as an Archachu!
Tassadar, in an attempt to gain a part in the story line, grabs and uses the fire crystal. It releases a possessed empty Firebat suit. To combat him in a friendly skirmish, I release my creature.
"ARCHACHU, I CHOOSE YOU!"
Both beings are now squaring off to begin combat, but the screen goes black to a commercial break, conveniently timed to occur right at the climactic battle scene. Showing us the magic of Zerg consumerism, is Wfawwer the Flaming Overlord. With his iCreep, he can have the magic of the Hive's grey psionic food source on the go. No more starving to death, losing speed bonuses, or needing to excrete substances onto the ground below you! iCreep allows users to have that slime we all know and love packed into a container and given a catchy letter "I" at the beginning of its name! Things are always more fun to buy when they start with the 9th letter of the alphabet!
