An elementary school class of inner city kids was on a hiking trip when several of them wandered off on their own and discovered the entrance to a small cave with a dim light shining from it. As they wandered inside one of them noticed that the light came from a strangely shaped rock on the ground, and he bent to pick it up. Suddenly, there was a bright flash of light and a loud rumble as a huge boulder slid into the mouth of the cave. When the light faded and the kids could see once more, the PROTECTOR stood before them, glowing with a blue-white light. Despite being suddenly trapped with the strange reptilian PROTECTOR, the kids werent scared. They instinctively knew that the PROTECTOR meant them no harm.
The PROTECTOR told them of its duties and origins - and of its immediate need for their assistance. With the disturbance of the energy crystal the secrets it held would soon be lost forever if they were not transferred to their living minds. “I am STENTOR,” said the PROTECTOR. “A creature created to protect the energy crystal and the secrets it holds. Thousands of years ago, there existed planet SLAM, the source of all power and justice in the galaxy. The power and technology of the people of SLAM were matchless, but the power of the SLAMMERS was unequaled even among them. The SLAMMERS were the police force of the galaxy, fighting evil and injustice where ever it was to be found.”
