“About Serious Sam
Sam “Serious” Stone is the main protagonist of the Serious Sam series, and a living legend to the Earth’s resistance against Mental.
Sam Stone is a legend for Earth. With extreme bravery, he fights massive swarms of enemies, wounded countless times, he still does so. Because he is a man with skills! He was sent back in Egypt, to find a spaceship, hidden by Sirians on planet Titan, and go to the planet Sirius to assassinate Mental, to prevent the invasion on Earth, and its annihilation. Unfortunately, a Crate Bus full of Croteam Heads crashed into the SSS Centerprice, the spaceship that lead to Sirius. Then he took the Holy Grail and activated the back-up spaceship. Then the wizards summoned him, and gave him another quest. He finally went to Sirius, but Mental escaped when he arrived at the Mental Institution and destroyed it.
The First Encounter
Sam was teleported back in Ancient Egypt to find the spaceship, hidden by Sirians, and use it to travel to Sirius and assassinate Mental. First of all, he had to collect four magical elements which were needed for his entry in Memphis. After collecting all of the elements, Sam fought his way to the Memphis Metropolis and the Temple of Ptah. There, in the temple, lay the Amon-Ra Sign. Neither Sam nor NETRICSA knew its purpose, but they headed towards Thebes. After days of walking in the desert, Sam finally reached the Alley of the Sphinxes, where he placed the four elements onto the four respective altars, in a giant yard, and summoned an ancient guardian of death. After destroying it, Sam proceeded to Karnak, where he found some Sirian hieroglyphs, which NETRICSA translated. They said that the Sirians themselves did not live in Karnak, but in Luxor, so Sam went there, and found a Transmitter, which he used to call the Sirian Spaceship. After clearing his way to The Great Pyramid, he encountered a giant warlock, whom he defeated, and then proceeded to get teleported aboard the Spaceship, and departed for Sirius. Or so he thought.
The Second Encounter
As Sam was traveling aboard the Sirian spaceship, a Crate Bus full of Croteam Heads crashed onto it, bringing it down. The spaceship crash-landed into South America. Fortunately for him, Sirians left a backup Spaceship in case something happened to the original, but it was in a different time period.
Luckily, they also left a Time-Lock to each major civilization that lived on Earth, one of them being the Mayan civilization. The Mayan Time-Lock was in Teotihuacan, in the Sun Pyramid. Sam fought his way to Teotihuacan, where he encountered and defeated Kukulkan, and the Wind God activated the Time-Lock for him and allowed him to use it.
After traveling in time, again, Sam finds himself in Persia. He’s at a Ziggurat, and from there he must fight his way to the Tower of Babel, where the Persian Time-Lock resides, along with an ancient monstrosity. After killing the abomination, Sam used the Time-Lock, and travels forward in time, in Medieval Europe.
There lies the “Book of Wisdom”, which contains information on where the Holy Grail is, which is needed to activate the second spaceship. After fighting his way through The Citadel and The Land of the Damned, Sam locates the Ice Castle where the Holy Grail is kept. But, it has been stolen by someone, and placed elsewhere. Sam, fighting his way through the Corridor of Death, reaches the Grand Cathedral, defeats Mordekai, the last obstacle in his way to the second spaceship, gets the Holy Grail, and makes a confession to Mental. Afterwards, he flies off to Sirius once again…or so to say.”
