Ryan Beebe World of Ideas T,TR 2:15-3:30 Tux A wind blowing the clouds around in the pattern of a tornado, as the wind dies down, a strange creature emerges into this new world. These creatures are funny little people, with a distinct white underside and a black backside with a black bird-like head and a stout beak. As this unknown creature emerges upon the land, he uses a conch shell to make a loud noise. From the water, more of these creatures begin to surface as the waves crash along the land of Tux. They gather around a great mountain overlooking a vast area of water that is clear enough to see the sandy bottom. As they all look at the striking setting, the sun begins to hide behind the water and a bright glow reflects them. A leader emerges, the great King Patagonicus, as he raises his short stubby arm in the air, all becomes quiet. Patagonicus begins to speak.

The people of Tux gathered at the large amphitheatre set aside for these types of events. As the group began to seat themselves, Forsteri came out to speak as Patagonicus sat on his giant golden throne right behind Forsteri. Sitting beside Patagonicus was his beautiful wife Schlegeli on her silver and much smaller throne. As Forsteri began to speak, the crowd became quiet. "Great people of Tux, welcome. We are here on official business brought to my attention by King Patagonicus. He would like to have a grand palace made for him and his wife to reside in during his reign as King of Tux." A roar went up throughout the crowd. Some people in praise of the King were in a great roar, while some felt all should be equal and thought negatively of this plan. Forsteri began to speak again, "Quiet please
