Level 1: Training Day is the first level in the Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime.

Plot/Cut Screens

In 2010 B.C., the Cult of Dumazu gathers at the funeral of their dead god. They chant his name, secretly praying he stays dead for the sake of mankind. Dumazu is forgotten but he awaits his return. His burial tomb lays deep below New York. In 1954 A.D., construction for the Parkview Psychiatric Hospital is underway thanks to the New York City government. Two construction workers discover a shard of the Relic of Nilhe and turn it over to the American Museum of Natural History. In 1989 A.D., Janosz Poha is committed to Parkview and shares a room with Ismael, the last surviving member of the Cult of Dumazu.

Years later, Janosz is discharged with a clean bill of health. He gets a job at the American Museum of Natural History and steals the shard of the Relic in hopes of being awarded Dana Barrett. Ismael takes the shard and goes back on his word as the power of the Relic emanates.

A few weeks later, on a Thursday, the Ghostbusters trap a ghost. It's the 9.5th in a row (on Tuesday they only captured half of the Siamese twin Class 3 entity at a warehouse). Everyone except Peter Venkman are concerned with the unusual spike in paranormal activity. Peter is content as their bank account has spiked accordingly. Overwhelmed with the task at hand, Ray Stantz declares they have to hire some rookies again.

Three weeks later, Ray returns to the Firehouse with some takeout and finds Egon Spengler. Peter and Winston Zeddemore are resting from the last Class 4 containment. Egon shares his analysis with Ray, a loose directional trajectory to each subsequent case. The ghosts are engaged in a migratory progression, moving southeast from the point of origin. They are now heading straight to the Sedgewick Hotel. After keeping the junior team on the sidelines for two days, Ray decides it is time for their first solo mission. Janine Melnitz does the honors and calls them to attention.
