Tie In Plot Outlines

Flowers' Encounter
Who Young female Gelfling named "Flowers"
When Almost a thousand years after (Game Year 1140 when the crystal was Restored) the Crystal was healed
Current year: 2140
What An unknown bright light in the sky that reminded the Gelflings of the Skekses caused them to quickly hide within the confines of the castle.
Where Flowers was captured inside the castle, and taken to the alien trading port within the Gordon System in which she fetched a nice high price to a slave trader dealing in exotic and rare species.
Why The alien race was curious as to what anomoly occured about every thousand years on this otherwise unknown location, and since it was almost a thousand years since the previous event, decided to go visit anyway. During the search of the castle, Flowers' curiosity got the better of her, and was promptly captured when she was spotted.
How Incapacitated and carried aboard the alien ship and taken away to be sold as a slave since she was so small and had an unknown language and the captors believed this Gelfling to be of only partial sentience.
Variations Escapes capture and returns to Thra and tells of horrific stories of many races as well as a race that experienced a similar event.
Returns home after being dropped off by a "Slave Savior" in which the Savior is rewarded.
Manages to free herself and acquires a ship and finds her way back to Thra in which at the request of the Queen gets sent back out with some other Gelflings to peacefully and carefully explore the areas beyond the heavens that Flowers spoke of

During the raid, a civilian was accidentally left on Thra upon departure of the spacecraft, leaving a lone Phayon on the planet Thra to fend for himself. The Gelflings, wary of this unknown creature completely shuns the Phayon away from the castle and their cities leaving him to the wilderness of this unkown world.

Player Variation 1
When Flowers was captured, another Gelfing (male or female - player choice) was also captured but managed to escape and fight his/her way to freedom while travelling through the ADS Cygni System after Flowers was sold to a slave trader. A player may choose this lone male Gelfling and play as them if they wish.

Both Geflings are permitted to be played by players. Special abilities will be available if both Gelflings are player characters in each other's company.
