It was late in the day, the sun had reached it's peak and was slowly sinking into the mountain below creating a beautiful orange light that radiated from behind the mountains. The sky was a hue of red that could only be seen this time of day, it looked as if an orange serpent wove it's way between the pink and yellow clouds. They were sitting on a hill not too far from the mountain, with perfect view of the setting sun. The hill was covered in beautiful flowers ranging from roses to tulips. The sight of this place was truly a sight to behold, it's large mountains licked the sky, it's lakes gave the land a sense of life, and the hills littered the lands, filling where the mountains didn't grasp and the lakes didn't swallow. And nestled deep within the mountains was a village. Though the houses were plainly built, they were adorned with intricate designs carved into each post surrounding the village. Each posts carvings had a story of their own, most told of a war between the gods and mortals of the world, whilst others told of deeds preformed by heros and paragons. The village had long been abandoned but you could not tell just by looking for every house was intact and left like the day it was abandoned. Lights still shone through the windows at night, and during the day the scent of baked foods was always present. The mountains that loomed over the village created ominous shadows that danced around the village. Despite being abandoned the village never felt empty. It had a warm, welcoming aura about it. But it also had a menacing presence for those that mean harm to the houses themselves. It protected the village for hundreds of years and now, it finally has a reason to wake once again.
