From the Green Glades to the foothills of Mount Boom, the small creatures of Minutia lived in harmony, until the night the meteor struck…
The meteor smashed into Mount Boom, bringing with it a strange force that transformed the Slugs who lived there into an army of greedy, greenery-gobbling pests.
Now, the Slugs are taking over the world, munching a path through Minutia and sliming up everything they touch!
But a brave band of heroes is fighting back! Left behind when the Slugs captured their families, these unlikely champions are on an epic quest to save their parents and beat back the Slug advance.
To get to Mount Boom, they’ll need to become… the Best Fiends.
Home. That’s what ‘Green Glades’ means to the Best Fiends of Minutia. Before the Slug invasion, this lush, green landscape of woodlands and meadows, provided everything bug or beast could ever wish for; shelter, community, and food in abundance!
Sure, there was the occasional neighborly disagreement… and yes, once in a while someone got eaten – that’s life when you’re a Best Fiend. But most of the time, this place was a haven of peace and prosperity. With a little luck and a lot of courage, it could be again.
Not too much is known about the Frozen Hills, a land of perpetual winter, where the icy wind howls and no fruit or flower survives. I mean listen to that description! Would you want to find out more? Be my guest. Round up some researchers. Pack a tent. But make sure you’ve got a seriously strong team on your side, or you’re likely to get a seriously chilly reception.
After all, there may be life in the Frozen Hills – beyond the all-conquering Slug Army – but anyone who lives here is likely to be as hard as the frosty earth they call home.
The clue’s in the name… and it’s one ‘s’, not two, so if you’re looking for pudding, your plum out of luck. The Endless Desert is a beautiful but arid wasteland of ancient, sun-bleached rock and powder-fine sand that stretches as far as the eye can see.
Only the hardiest of the Best Fiends can survive in this parched and unforgiving place, where water is scarce and the only shelter from the blazing desert sun is in the windcarved
caves or the shadow of gigantic ancient bones.
Beyond the Endless Desert lies the Ominous Ocean. A watery wonderland that stretches to the horizon and beyond. Here, Slug pirates roam the seas and mythical monsters lurk in the depths… Ominous indeed!
While Fiends aren’t known for their swimming prowess, surely even here the Fiends flourish. Perhaps you’ll find them on some remote island paradise sipping on some morning dew!
Wherever you are in Minutia, the towering top of Mount Boom is never out of sight. It’s rocky slopes and flourishing foothills have been home to hundreds of thousands of happy creatures over the years, but since the night of the comet, all that has changed.
Nowadays, this monstrous mountain is Slug Central; a slimesmeared fortress, packed to the peak with greedy gastropod invaders. Even the mountain’s craggy face has changed, from a friendly smile into a sinister sneer. So take heed, would-be heroes and approach with extreme caution! Mount Boom may hold the secret of the Slugs’ power, but getting to the top will really sort the bugs from the boys!
