Blazer descends from the tall Mountain of Souls to investigate the labyrinthian factory/laboratory hidden beneath the dilapidated floorboards of Dr. Leo's home.  Here, Blazer communes with the many, uh, cats that Dr. Leo has as he battles robots and toy soldiers in search of the genius inventory.  In the thin place between sleep and waking, Blazer will ponder (silently; he's a silent protagonist) the philosophy of an altruistic man who in service to his king doomed the world.

Blazer travels to the Seabed Palace, or at least the roof of the Seabed Palace where he only needs be knees-deep in saltwater to begin his investigation at St. Elles.  Or St. Elle's.  The game flipflops on that.  What is St. Elles/'s, anyway?  Is that the name of The Seabed Palace?  Alright, let's go!

Soul Blazer is a story about a soul blazer named Blazer who, at the command of the celestial being called The Master, is sent to the empty kingdom of Freil to revive the world.  Some time ago, a king consumed with greed brought about the ruin of his empire, selling every soul in the land to the king of evil, Deathtoll.

In this episode, Blazer begins his adventure in Grass Valley, a lush hidden paradise atop a tall mesa overlooking the entire Freil kingdom.  As he battles his way through the tainted underground labyrinth, he releases the souls of the village's population, including farmers, goats, flowers and even a chair.  Here he learns about the scientist who was party to the world's ruin, and gains insight as to where he must travel to triumph over the evil forces.

We do a lot of introduction in this episode; jump ahead about seven minutes if you just want to get into the soul blazing.  Tell your friends about our podcast!

A bunch of people contributed their voices to our little project, and we are grateful for your help!  Some of these people are local community theater actors, and others are folks who recorded these lines from some place far far from here.  They are credited below; some have YouTube channels or websites and such -- please visit them if you're interested to see what else these talented voice actors are up to.

Also, these names are sometimes rather vague.  Only a handful of people in this game have names; most are just villagers and animals and such.
