]. As the wiki hopefully reaches fame, more things will be added and the collaboration of talented artists is more than welcomed. Every
donation's owner will be featured in this wiki because as I don't want you
to steal neither will I. The book is due to be finished before February 2007. If an enough amount of people are interested some chapters could
be added to this website in order to show some of the actual 'stuff'. Positive critisism is more than allowed and welcomed but insulting the quality of the material, fans or myself will oblige me to report to the elftown guards.
CAUTION:This is a medieval fantasy story, if you do not like this genre, I'd rather you clicked away or tried to get interested because though critism IS accepted it will only be so from people that like and/or understand the subject.
Also, I'd like to start featuring an artist (and not only at drawing) [Ruudje] who has colaborated in the making of this story.
And now Ladies and Gentlemen...Enjoy
This is not a story that takes place on our planet earth. Think about it as a different earth in another solar system of a different galaxy in another universe, far, far away.
is a place full of magic, so much magic that it had almost beaten the scientific curiosity which let the world stay 'simple' and what we consider medieval for as long as known.
For many thousands of years, the different creatures had learnt how to prevail and how to live with other creatures. Like anywhere, there was always greed and lust of power, battles, wars and evil.
Of all that roamed the earth, whom you will know for now will be the humans, the elves, the fairies, the mermaids, the dwarves, the tamers of magic (magicians, wizards or witches) and the fers
. Of evil you needn't know yet.
In the twentieth thousand year of the forty-seventh season (year 20047) peace was disturbed by six knights of darkness. Peace once achieved by the hard effort of the fers and the ingenuity of allied species.
An unlimited amount of magic was at anyone's hand – anyone powerful enough to wield it. This had brought upon the earth the first great war, a war in which good couldn't seem to defeat evil. One special night, the King of Kings of the Human race, the Lord of Dwarves, the Queen of Mermaids, King and Queen of Fairies, the Wisest and Purest of Elves and the Most Powerful Wizard met in a very special secret place. The full moon shone as glorious as ever and all the stars looked upon an altar.
One drop of blood from each participant, a small drop of blood that contained purity, power and all the intention of good was given for a greater purpose… Then they wove a spell of magic that took direct power from the earth’s essence. Light blinded all. When it finally consumed itself in the altar, wrapped in a blanket a young child laid quietly.
What material was this? What answer to evil was this and what strange marks were these on the baby's neck and wrists as bright as the moonlight?
The Queen of Mermaids approached. She reached her arms out for the baby; but the loud noise of a stomp stopped her.
Strong and tall stood a horse by the entrance, but was he a horse? No, for an elegant twisted horn rose on his forehead. Slowly he approached the altar, the young girl wrapped in her blanket got on the animal, and they left.
"Un Ecor nel"
, the wizard said in a tongue long lost. Un Ecor nel – one pure creature, a phrase that became commonly known as a word, a word for one extraordinary animal: unicorn.
After that night they searched for years for both the young girl and the unicorn. Three cycles (300 years) passed and only rumors were heard here and there.
Could you imagine such a long war?
And in the silence of night an army grew together, led by one whom they had thought lost.
And on the very first day of the first millennium, Erden, First of Fers rode Emodun and, followed by her army, went face to face with the enemy. This young girl and her magnificent creature defeated Malnom.
Of this story you need know no more.
The fers then made seven stones, seven stones that would hold within them the unlimited power of earth, only they would limit creature’s access to it. Never again would anyone develop powers as strong as Malnom, being able to control fire, rains and even the cycles of life.
stones were kept in a secret chamber guarded by a leader of good men, stones that would pass from generation to generation.
The fers lay hidden and silent for they had no use in earth...until earth itself seemed to lose them.
were the number of the Malonum-knights
and they had greed of the stones. They had found the chamber of balance and tried to get them; but the fers
were clever, and with their enormous magic they had developed a defense mechanism for the chamber, a chamber that with the stones worked as one with the inner magic of earth. If a fer of good intentions was not the one to enter the chamber then all of the stones would travel in time to a specific cycle, in a special season where its power was at peak. The Malonum-knights then used their own abilities and traveled, one by one, searching for the Stones of Power.
The head of the council in the city of Ferolum was alerted. He searched for the only fer there was record of, Leicrah, daughter of Sadriel the last known Queen of Fers; but she was just a princess, a forgotten princess of a long lost and forgotten race.
Accompanied by her Merodan hawk, Carak, and her peculiar and strange mentor Ashiasi a Surethna she took the adventure, only because she had nothing better to do...
