CHAPTER 1: A WARNING FROM THE
It was still dusk when Doronian awoke. As he turned around he's
fingers searched for the warmth of Christina's body, but she
already rose from her sleep.
Seconds later the smell of fresh tea hit Doronian as he got up.
A faint glow came from the small round table in the corner of the
room, where the lamp was still lit. Doronian got up and got
dressed in his tunic and boots. He washed he's face with the tub
of water standing next to the bed.
As he enterd the kitchen he saw Christina sitting at the dinning
table studying a scroll intensly. She looked up as she noticed
Christina was the most beuatiful woman in Woodland or atleast in
the eyes of Doronian she had blond hair and a dark skin tone.
"Good morning Doronian." she said. It felt to Doronian as though
the sirens smile lit up the kitchen. Only a few early raise made
there way threw the naturaly grown walls of the small house he
and Christina shared.
By the laws of the Woodland Doronian, being the last of the
Nomaty tribe and Christina, being a siren, were not allowed to
mary or have children. King Uhn kindly gave thesecond youngest
siren and the last of the Nomati and also hero, premission to
The warchief Lagsu, a tough and just centour dit not like this
agreemant, but said aslong as they stay by the laws they may do
"Good morning." Replied Doronian as he looked at Christina.
He saw a small fire floating in the air with a pot of tea
floating not to high above the fire, almost at a point of
After almost two hundred years of living with a siren, the
everyday use of magic still amazed Doronian.
"Ancia have a problem?" Doronian asked Christina as he looked at
Ancia is one of the four origanal sirens and also the leader of
the siren counsel.
"No this is a warning from the east. Acording to this a small
group of traders saw a Eaglonian army kill a water Dragon. I
can't see what to make of this in the event that it is true. This
can couse great war among all six the peoples for Ancia thinks
that they are searching for the crystal of light.
Our knowladge is that the dwarfs of Isma still gaurds it deep in
there mines, but we need to sent someone to get news from Isma.
Out of the greatness of this matter and knowladge alone we can't
just sent anyone and we yet have to determan if there lies any
truth behind this. So i casted a truth spell on the scroll and am
still searching for sighns of betrayel yet to my deepest missery
there seems to be none."
The worry on Christina's face soon affected Doronian too and he
decided that if war were upon the world that none such matters
shall be descused so early. He went to pour the tea and got a
start on breakfast, but the good old fashioned way for he dit not
posses any magical abilities.
After they had breakfast Doronian made his way to the Hall of
Kings knowing king Uhn will soon sent for him.
He past Landria, the youngest of the sirens. She was busy growing
a new house for the dwarfs twins who now came of age and left
there fathers house. After watching her for a few seconds while
she manipilates nature he went on his way.
Landria had a light skin and blonde hair. She was also the
shortest siren. Every action she made was filled with grace.
As Doronian arived at the Hall of Kings he saw that Ancia and
Lagsu were outside in argumant.
Lagsu was strong build and had a little black beard at the point
of his chin. he was the largest centour and had black hair. Ancia
is beuatiful and alouqont. She had black hair and was tall.
This great hall was one of the few stone buildings in Woodland.
It had steps up with two gaurds standing outside the great wooden
doors. All over the hall were small windows and the entire hall
is white. A true beauty.
Doronian whent up to greet Lagsu and Ancia. Ancia and Lagsu was
delighted to see him and imediatly started filling him in on what
was to happen.
They enterd the magnifasent hall together. The roof and floor
were marble even the walls were marble. The pilars looked like
tree trunks and at the back of the hall were a throne. close by
the throne where a table and thats where king Uhn were sitting
deep in conversation with a orc.
Doronian imediatly reconised hes friend Corn.
He quickly walked up to the table, gave a quick bow to the king
and greeted Corn. Corn were away on a two year trip to the Low
Lands. he was a spy in the great orc tribe, Pand.
Corn is a strong build orc and large in size. He was clothed in
a white shirt and short pants. Whearing his worrior boots.
The two friends greeted each other with great delight, but
Doronian saw pain and missery in the eyes of his friend, but
Corns eyes reflected hapiness and gratitude.
"Good day old friend." said Doronian. "Great day." replied the
After two munetes of exchanching plesantries they were interupted
by a grunt from Lagsu.
They looked up and the king said, : "If you two are done I would
like to start.
King Uhn wre a older man who had a great grey beard and lost most
of his grey hair, but he was proud and he whore armore with
Woodland criest on his chestplate He had a purple tunic on wich
betrayed him as a leader of Woodland.
The four of them sat down at the small round table and Ancia
started to explain the situation. After an hour of debaiting
about wich steps to take the king silenced them. "We shall sent
out a party of six to go to Isma and find news of the Crtstal of
Light." The king said.
"The six shal be Drago the Goblin. Over the last fifty years he
proofed himself trustworthy. Landria. A siren is needed on this
quest and she can do with the experiance. Doronian. We need a
leader for this quest and also your battle experience and skill
with a weapon shal come in handy. Elgor and Fran the two elv
generals shall also go and finnaly Whilsc the dwarf.
Lagsu emediatly objected. "If this massage holds truth the paths
to Isma shall be patrolled by the enemy and Landria is still so
young and not yet in full control of her magic. Also this party
is too small."
"A small party moves quicker and time is not at our side right
now, Landria shall be fine. I have spoken they shall leave in
five days." The king replied with great certainty.
