This book begins, like all others of its kind, with a warning that boils down to a string of incoherent madness.
If I have so much damn sway in this story, maybe it would give me options to blast my companions, slaughter all the space elves on Treeforia IV, and sip Hemmingway Daquiris on the shores of the purple oceans of some other planet with a stupid name. No Such Luck. The good news is that the book says the protagonist is talented and smart. The bad news is that this book is a filthy liar. In any event, this page serves no purpose other than to make focused lasers sound awesome. Those planets had it coming, I tell you what.
Oh, that wacky Evil Power Master and his ring explosions. Apparently, his business is blowing up planets for kicks, and business is good. Already he blows up two planets on the first two pages and claims responsibility. The book can toot your horn about being awesome and having an awesome Martian companion (spoiler: Flppto is not awesome ), but you don't have a damn focused laser for exploding planets, now do you?
Wait... wait... hold up. What the-
What the hel-

- Humorous Caption for Evil Power Master
...Right, back to the point. The intro page was clearly made because no one would be able to coherently read page 2. The summary is "The Lacoonian System is full of idiots". And the Evil Power Master continues to be awesome. For next update, please think of other fun ways the Evil Power Master could destroy planets.
Purple... Days... War. No wonder the EPM is trying to butcher these morons. And what are your brilliant plans, commander? Call in the (single) spaceship to go investigate it personally? Or get Congress involved? You all know how I feel about Congress, folks!
