(Note: This is not a fanfiction of the new Spyro Series. In truth I hate the new games because I found the story cliche and the game itself just boring. If you do like the newer games though, don't be offended, and don't think this entire series as a big hit against the Legend of Spyro. In fact, I might even incorporate a few aspects of the new series in this one. This Fanfic is basically my idea of how they should've rebooted the Spyro franchise. I'm not asking anyone to turn this into some kind of petition or anything I just want to share this with people and maybe have a few laughs with it. Enjoy )
It is morning and we are introduced to one of the dragon lands. This one is a great valley surronded by mountains with some castle like buildings and a river. We cut to see a small purple dragon chasing sheep. This is where the player is introduced to the movement and view mechanics of the game. After that he has just scattered a large herd of them when he is tackled by a slightly older and larger tan dragon
Spyro: [slammed to the ground]"Oof"
Copper: Gotcha! [laughs] Not so much fun being the sheep is it Spyro.(rubs Spyros head)
Spyro: [grunts] What do you want.
Copper: I'm just trying to look after my little brother. Wouldn't want the sheep hurting you after all.
Spyro: Shut up and Get off me. [Copper gets off] The sheep would be more trouble for you then for me. I've been practicing charging on them.
Copper: I've been ramming sheep since before you even knew where your horns were. Alright, then show me what you got.
(We are now introduced the the horn/charge mechanic and given our first objective to knock around ten sheep.)
Copper: Not bad for a whelp, but charging sheep is old, I hear there are some rats in the old rabbit burrows east of here. Last one there was a dropped egg....[grins] or a little bitty dragon with a big head.
(spyro frowns and copper takes off. The player takes control and is to follow after him. The player is led to the river which Copper flies over with ease. He turns toward Spyro hovering in the air)
Copper: Looks like the bank is steep on this side. You'd better hope your wings are big enough to glide over.
(Player learns the glide control and uses it to continue chase over bank. Spyro meets up with his brother near in an area full of burrows)
Copper: [Looking into one of the burrows] I guess I win. I think I see some in here but they're hard to get at, hold on.[backs away] Stay back they get really mad when you smoke them out.
(He Breathes fire into the burrow and two large rats come out. Copper quickly dispatches them. The burrow bursts into a puff a smoke and three gems pop out.)
Copper: Spyro look! Those rats must've been stealing from dragon hoards. Maybe the others have some too. Go drive them out.
(We learn the firebreathing mechanic and eliminate all the burrows and collect the gems.)
Copper: Looks like that's all of them. I guess there's no sense in returning the gems since we don't know whose they are. Finders Keepers after all. Hey look over there!
cut to see a glowing gold light going into a disappearing into a cave
Spyro: What's that?
Copper: I don't know. come on let's check it out.
cut to them entering the cave
Spyro: It sure is dark in here.
Copper: [Looks sideways at Spyro] Scaaarred?
Spyro: [Defensivly] No! I'm not scared of anything! I just wanna know how we are going to follow that thing if we can't see.
(Copper scans the area for a bit and then perks up when he sees a large basin. He uses his fire breath on it and it ignites)
Copper: These old lamps seem to work. Lets light whatever ones we can find.
(We then set off through the cave battling large rats and doing some platforming along the way. After lighting one Lamp we ecounter a large clear pond where treasure is clearly visible at the bottom.)
Spyro: (Peering into it) Look!
Copper: [He walks over and looks in the pond, then turns his head to Spyro] Well what are you waiting for? Go get it.
(We learn how to dive and retrieve the gems. Copper nods in approval and sets off again. We go through the routine until they emerge at the other end of the cavern where it leads to a great clearing.)
They see the gold glowing was a dragonfly that immediately hides in a bush by a lake where a bunch of similar dragonflies are located. Spyro and Copper look at each other and then run to the bush, seeing the golden dragonfly perched on the branch.
Spyro: I've never seen a dragonfly like that.
Copper: Let's catch it!
[A deep voice interrupts] You will do no such thing.
The two startled dragon cubs turn to find a large, green adult dragon sitting behind them.
Copper: Hi Talonus.
Spyro: Why can't we catch the dragonfly?
Talonus: Those are no ordinary dragonflies young ones. They are magic and bring good luck to those who protect them. They are the reason our summers are as long and nice as they are. It would be in ill form to hold one captive.
Copper: We wouldn't hurt it, and we wouldn't keep it for long.
Talonus: [firmly] You won't by keeping it at all. [Gentler] There are plenty of other ways to entertain yourselves here without picking on poor little insects. Lord knows you do enough terrorizing the sheep.[chuckles] Go on and play as much as you like or until your mother calls you. There's an easy way out for you spyro seeing as your not old enough to fly. [nods toward a path that leads out of the grove]Have fun now and mind the dragonflies. [Takes off]
Copper: [turns to Spyro] I'm gonna go get some food, I'm starving. Let me know if you find anything neat around here. [Flies off as well]
(Player is free to explore the grove area and knock around the bunnies and toads. Some treasure can be collected as well.)
