Torin's Passage

by Blind Sally

Part 2: Prologue - Meet Torin

02. Prologue - Meet Torin

We then cut to a beautiful scene in The Lands Above of a farm in the valley beneath some crystal mountains.

A hooded figure comes into frame and--

--wait, did you see that ring?

Enter Mr. Fahrman and Torin, out of sight of Mr. Fahrman.

Torin? Torin? Torin!! Now where is he?

Torin, you show off.

Torin, when are you gonna grow up? You pick up those tools from town like I told you?
But I was going into Tosche station to pick up some power converters! Er-- Um, I thought I'd do that tomorrow.
No, I need'em in the morning. You get into town right now. You can waste time with your friends when your chores are done.

Yes, sir.

Enter Mrs. Fahrman.

Hurry home, Torin. Don't be late for dinner!
Okay, mom!

This isn't what I want in life.

I should be a hero! Heroes don't run errands.

Right, Boogle? Hey, Boogle? Boogle!

*incomprehensible gibberish*
Asleep again?
*more gibberish*

Ah, Boogle. Is this all my life will ever be, running errands to this little town?
*exasperated gibberish*
I just--I just don't want to have lived my life without ever having lived my life.

Uncle Owen! Aunt Beru!

Well, Torin. You asked for it.

(Watch the entire prologue video here. Be warned, the resolution is tiny compared to the rest of the game. It's really worth the watch, though. Awesome stuff for 1995.)
