A Fantasy RPG of Epic-like Proportions
200 years ago, A great evil threatened the Kingdom of Stardonia. Drakus, a sorcerer of great strength marched on the lands with his legion of shadow minions.
Stardonia's King at the time gathered all the races in the land. United, they fought back, repelling the invading forces with much battle. Drakus retreated and went on to brood for another attempt.
100 years ago, Drakus attempted to seize control of Stardonia again, this time by spreading a great sickness across the land. The previous king's son, Orrious, gathered a small band of warriors whom banded together and trekked the land and sailed across the sea to southern most point of the world. Together, they fought with and slew Drakus, creating an era of peace in the world.
But, unbeknownst to Orrious, Drakus cast a spell on him with his dying breath. He cursed that his first born son would bear Drakus's spirit until a day arrived for Drakus to emerge victorious from the grave.
25 years ago, that son was born. Though the second hatching of King Orrious and his queen, he was favored for he was male, and one day he would be crowned king. They named him Xipz, and over the next five years on his life, he was a happy hatching who promised to grow into a fine young Drake and eventually, a handsome dragon.
However, on the eve of Xipz' fifth birthday, the spirit of Drakus arose out of his body to strike Stardonia at it's heart. Taking the body of a young palace guard, he slew the king and queen in their sleep before raising an army of shadow creatures to take over the castle and the capital city.
Orrious's most trusted advisor, an Elf named Rizyu, woke Xipz and his older sister, Phoenix, and helped them to escape the castle. During the escape, Phoenix got separated from them.
Rizyu whisked Xipz across the country side and took him to the home of one of Orrious's old comrades, a Dwarf named D'Bode Bardost, who know lived as a farmer. Xipz was given to him to raise in quiet. The day was lost, and Stardonia's only hope lay in the young hatchling low under the care of D'Bode. Rizyu left for parts unknown.
20 years past. One day, when D'bode though Xipz ready, he told him all of these things so that he might know his destiny. But, under the shock,pressure, and sudden responsibility, Xipz cracked, and ran away, hoping to escape his destiny.
The streets were filled with wretched humans and elves. What was worse, they seemed to be happy.
Their only saving grace was that as Thebeus passed them, the looks on their faces turned instantly to fear.
Thebeus was not alone. He traveled with 4 Shadow Soldiers, which rose out of the ground like tall thin trees. Their pointy heads had one grotesque eye in the center and they had no mouth to speak of.
He stopped in front of one of the few buildings in the small town that was still standing. A bookshop.
"How we let one go under the raider for so long is beyond me," said Thebeus.
He walked up to the door and knocked hard three times. Without waiting for an answer, he kicked the door clean off of it's hinges. "Knock Knock," said Thebeus.
OOC: This is Anga's uncle's book shop.
The deer was grazing quite happily. It was blissfully unaware of all that was around it. So when an arrow came and pierced it through the neck, it was quite surprised.
Even more surprising was the fact that it still seemed to be alive, despite the fatal wound in it's neck.
This was soon remedied by a weight in the Deer's back and his head was grabbed and jerked sideways. The deer's life ended right then in there.
Vladimir looked down at his kill and smiled. It was a large buck. Plenty to feed the rest of the tribe for dinner tonight.
He slung the buck over his shoulder and turned to head back to the village.
