Vanguardian Heroes: Team Skyler
« Thread started on: May 21st, 2006, 3:39pm »
I know most of you are wondering what this new topic relates to. Go back and read some of the past episodes of Spyro: Dragon of Destiny and you will notice a plot twist that flash the storyline forward thirty years.
That is where this spin off series will take place. I am sure most of you have already met Skyler and his team mates briefly during their guest star appearances in the episodes. I admit it is confusing telling Spyro's story and then jumping ahead 30 years to show what happened to everyone in the current series. As if that was complicated enough introducing Spyro's son and daughter and their team mates as time travelers was a real challenge. I found myself constantly asking myself if this was good idea. Doing a duel storyline about two timelines and totally different characters is not easy.
So far... in the current Dragon of Destiny episodes there has been no mention of Team Skyler. Don't worry they are set to return in episode eight during the rescue mission and that is going to be rather funny considering the fact that Skyler and his team are going to have to try and help Rocky and Rambo... oh sorry about that wrong movies... I meant Milo and Ember with their crazy rescue mission without being seen or interferring with the timeline. Talk about how hard that is going to be. The funny thing is that having Team Skyler guest star in Spyro: Dragon of Destiny all works according to my long term plan. There will be future crossovers between the two series. As you have seen Skyler is very much like his father in many ways but future episodes of both series will show the Skyler is also quite different from his father too.
The upcoming Vanguardian Heroes: Team Skyler series will focus entirely on Skyler and his friends' wild and crazy adventures. The new series will start at point in the timeline that occurs before the crossovers with Dragon of Destiny occurs. The episodes also will be done quite differently from Spyro: Dragon of Destiny.
1. There will be very little to no flashback in Team Skyler because lets face it Skyler and his friends don't have much of a past to flash back to before their parents' story becomes mixed in.
2. The recaps of previous episodes will be not be present at the beginning of each episode/mission. To see a recap you will have to read that episode to find the recap because it will be blended into that episode/mission.
3. Also there will be what I like to call: FACT FILES at the end of many of the episodes. These FACT FILES will be used to help flesh out the futuristic world of Vanguardian Heroes: Team Skyler. The info reveal will be about the new threats and characters featured in the series. There will also be CHARACTER FACT FILES too that shed light on each member of Skyler's team including Skyler himself. Even though Skyler's father, Spyro will show up along with other familiar faces from Dragon of Destiny don't think that they will be the same as they were before. Remember that 30 years seperate the two series from each other. Think about... a lot can change in just 1 year! Now imagine 30 years of changes and you get the picture.
Adult Spyro is a very different individual then his Teenage counterpart in Dragon of Destiny. The same goes for Hunter, Bianca, Elora and everyone else. Heh... I guess parenthood does change things. However, there will be moments where you will still get to see some of the old Spyro and Hunter personality show up. Especially during one of the planned multi-part episode/missions that I am working on for the new series. Think about how funny it will be to have both the parents and children working together with each other during a mission. Can you say 'oh boy this is going to be a real funny.' I can because it is the truth. Spyro and Skyler arguing with each other over how to approach a situation while everyone else stands in the background and roll their eyes is going to make for some rather funny story twists. Let's just say once this happens you'll see what I mean about Skyler and Spyro being alike in some ways and totally different in others.
What about the other characters? Well they too will have their on fair share of fights and arguments. You think Skyler and Spyro fighting with each other is going to be funny wait till you see what happens when you put Hunter, his son Khan and his daughter Tina in a situation together without Bianca being around. Let the laughs start flying because having Khan and Hunter doing something together is going to be real funny. Poor Tina, that girl is going to be rolling her eyes alot during this upcoming episode. Also, I haven't got to the rest of the team. Wait to see what the Adult version of Flame is like you'll be quite surprise.
Also don't expect to see the older villians make any trouble for Skyler and his team. You will see why during the Spyro: Dragon of Destiny storyline. Let's just say that many of Spyro's old enemies have mellowed out over the years and just leave it at that. Also, there is also the fact that the first meeting between Skyler and Red is going to go over rather funny considering how it ends. Spyro and Red having a conversation will end up being really amusing considering the history between both of them. And I am just barely scratching the surface of what I have planned.
4. The Villians... Hmm... what can say about them. The brand new villians of the Vanguardian Heroes are going to be rather interesting. Think of the current rivalry between Reeco and Spyro in the current series. Skyler will also have his own rival and he will not be a dragon but a gryphon name Shin. Shin is leader of the splinter group of gryphons known as the Nova Core. Other enemies introduced in this series are: The Shadow Alliance, the Dark Council and the mysterious Zero Force. Heh... remember when I said that none of the old villians would be returning I kinda lied slightly. There will be some surprising returning villians from Dragon of Destiny but I am not going to tell you who they are. You'll have to wait and see.
Well, I think I have said enough for the time being. I'll update this info from time to time. Take care and get ready for the three part series premiere episode Mission 01 of Vanguardian Heroes: Team Skyler on June 15th. Also, I am also working another series too. It is a Digimon Tamer Continuation series called The Dorumon Chronicles: Digimon Tamers 02: Advent X. This new series will debut sometime in either June or July. Keep on the look out for both new series. Also, Dragon of Destiny will enter it's sophomore season in June. Spyro: Dragon of Destiny Season 2: Invasion.
