Blackweird and his crew had entered URUNGATUNGA. A mystical island located deep in the Oceans of Eternity. The place that was said to be Captain Blackweird’s ultimate destiny. But something didn’t want them to enter. A certain force, incarnated in a gigantic pile of muscle meat. Muskolator! Mutated, neoplasmatic monster, guardian of Urungatunga! It was a long, bloody battle. Many lost their lives. But in the end, nothing could stand against Harr’s radioactive anchor! Harr Hanchor, the Nuclear Anchor - Captain Blackweird’s loyal boatsman and combatant. Pater putativus of Sbobbabob, and vanquisher of the abominable Muskolator.
