For those curious about the cinematic video in the beginning. The new NPC 'Snowflake Joshua' narrates an old legend (He's expert in legends and storytelling). A lonely boy from a small star travels to other small stars while befriending other lonely youngsters. The boy tried to convince the youngsters to visit his homestar, but fails as they do not wish to leave their own. He eventually succeeds by offering water that grants eternal life. However once they reach his star, the boy realizes there aren't enough to share and the star just isn't enough big enough for all of them. The boy starts to push his friends into the sky as they become new stars while other friends flee in fear. Eventually the boy is left alone again and misses his friends. Also please pray that I find Queen's Bet.
