Follow the Yellow Brick Road
In the distance, a young woman is skipping down the road with three companions and a dog. Batman overhears the woman calling one of her friends “Scarecrow,” which is the name of one of Batman’s famous enemies.
Gandalf, Wyldstyle, and Batman don’t recognize (friendly) Scarecrow, Tin Man, Cowardly Lion, Dorothy, or her little dog, Toto (Figure 3.5). Dorothy is happy to have more companions with her on the Yellow Brick Road, but a vortex appears suddenly and pulls in Dorothy, Toto, and her three friends.
Figure 3.5 Dorothy and friends greet Batman, Gandalf, and Wyldstyle.
Continue moving forward on the Yellow Brick Road. You eventually see a purple relic that was part of the Gateway before it exploded (see Chapter 2, “The Adventure Begins”). Before the characters can retrieve it, they spot the Wicked Witch of the West and her flying monkeys attempting to grab the relic (Figure 3.6).
Figure 3.6 The Witch and her flying monkeys are not friendly.
The Wicked Witch surrounds the characters with a green flaming circle. Flying monkeys attack at various times as the witch flies around and attacks the players from above. Try to dodge the witch’s yellow fireballs to avoid taking damage.
During the battle, the Wicked Witch uses Magic to trap the characters in magical chains. To escape the chains and free all the characters, move one character’s minifig to a different pad on the Toy Pad. Immediately after your characters break free, the Witch is vulnerable to attack. Use either Gandalf’s Magic or Batman’s Batarang to attack the Wicked Witch. You need to knock her down three times to end the battle, and then she will grab the purple relic and flee, with her flying monkeys, back to her castle.
After the first encounter ends with the Wicked Witch, the characters find themselves in a dark forest, filled with dangerous creatures and hidden secrets.
