From the Mayor

I’m the mayor. You see, I live to be revered by everyone. It’s the main reason I ever became mayor at all, really. If we Katz were in charge, the world would certainly be a more peaceful place. And I would be held on high!

Ruling the World?

Many tricks and traps are waiting for you on your adventure as you set off to obtain the seven world stones. Can someone really rule the world I wonder? Does anyone have a problem with that? Now, under my instructions, the hero “Kulu” and the beautiful goddess “Arika” shall depart on their adventure.

The Mayor
