One day I was approached by my good friend...Lets call him "Sargon" for now... He asked me to journey with him to the Mythic nexus To hunt Ancient Dragons with him, Needing training, How could I refuse?
We traveled to the Mythic nexus and searched around for some others to Hunt with, Nilthani and Shino joined us on our quest to slay some dragons. *Your footsteps echo, you can hear the dragons in the distance, You have never known fear, Until now* As we entered the Dragon cave we saw above us some other adventurers trying to enter the dragon's lair. "Greetings travelers." the robed man said, " We seek a group to travel with inside the dragon's caverns." We needed more fighters, How could we refuse? The day was going pretty good for me, I was finally getting a good Dragon's hunt!
*As you enter the dragon's lair You know only danger, Riches, and death can await, But which you find first?* as we entered the first room we saw, Some dragons charged at us trying to bring us down with their massive bodies, but the Fighters Charged as well, causing several bruised heads and even more broken ribs. Blow after blow the warriors struck, finally taking all Three of the dragons to the dirt. As our rogues searched around for treasures, I studied the dragons bodies. each of their teeth had silver and gold mixed in, I knew a man could be rich if any was strong enough to pry the teeth out, but as I knew no one that strong, we continued down the hall.
*You know danger awaits, but what are you going to do? You agreed to come, You agreed to hunt* We entered what looked to be a library, Not knowing the dragons were literate, I was surprised to find so many books. As I studied the books, I found a map of what seemed to be the Lair in which we stood. *On the map you see several different markings, Such as *treasure* and *DANGER**. We continued down the hall, fighting several dragonlings as we went, We heard the dragons get closer, and closer, until we reached a room in which We saw Gold everywhere! Weapons! armor! scattered across the floor as if It were nothing, I would have studied the items but We heard a raging growl from across the room. *There you are, the Massive dragon lord before you, What will you do?* I could hear all the warriors gasp and the poet nearly fainted, the words of magik swept through my mind. Paralyze Venom Vex, I tried to cast them all at once. Barely able to move I casted my protective spells and Rained Inferno onto the Dragon. He seemed to be resistant to my magik. I could see the others die left and right! I ran knowing it was the only Thing I could do.
I woke up in an odd fortress with my companions... *As you explore this seemingly deserted castle you begin to see...* Bodies! There were bodies! Some human... some not.... I looked at their armor, Surprised I realized these were Nagen soldiers! and some... Koguryian! I even saw some of my comrades... Buyans! I realized these people weren't fighting each other... But some other kind of Foe. I hadn't known that the three kingdoms could unite... But there I was. I saw finally what they were fighting... some kind of Tiger-dragon Hybrid.
As we traveled further... We started sloping downwards... We came across a dungeon. Then we saw the Cells....
more of these odd creatures seem to be kept captive here.* As we traveled down the long dark hall, these things Started to yell at us. "Be wary, What ever can keep THESE captive must be strong!" Said my friends Sargon. One of the creatures was free from its cage, but didn't even Try to save the others of its kind. We engaged the GrokkTar (as we later found they were called) I still wielded its twin spikes... It hit one of our fighters and he flew across the room and hit the wall (keep in mind this is a *really* long room) I attempted to paralyze the creature with my magik, I expected it to fail, But it work Quite well! I realized as strong as these creatures were, They had *NO* Magik resistance! After I had discovered this and told my traveling band, We were able to dispatch the beasts) much more easily! After we had slain (and looted) the ones that had escaped, We found the one guarding the cells....
*As you see the massive, what appears to be a giant, person standing in front of you... Your white clothes aren't really white anymore* RROAAARRR! The Giant screamed and rushed towards us, The fighter who had been flung against the wall, now rushed forwards and leapt in front of the giants spike, blocking it from the poet. The Poet, who would be sad for the loss of such a noble man, Started healing the Fighter with all his Will. I, the only mage tried the doze the creature... it barely worked so I decided to rain inferno upon the Giant. After It had been well Whacked by my magik the ((Now "shooed" off giant)) Came raging towards me, I darted out of the way and the (Quite stupid) giant Hit the wall. *You stand fighting the Giant, you don't know if it would be wise to rush him, or simply let the mage finish him* Sargon, my warrior friend, decided to rush the thing. As he leapt onto the giants head, attempting to distract it (which I might say he did VERY well) The giant turned its full (Angry) attention to him. I knew my friend was trying to buy me some time, So I cast my most powerful spell upon the fiend. Hellfire. A rush of lava and fiery death came and leapt onto the giant, My friend sargon leapt out off of the giants back Just in time to Not be incinerated. After the Giant had been slain (and looted) We found the treasure he was guarding... Which turned out to be a portal. As we leapt through, not knowing where we would appear next....
*Suddenly you appear in a place with a lot of people... you pause, you know this place... you are in the...* Buyan market! We were teleported home by this odd portal, I was sent to the market with Sargon, (I learned later that my other companions were teleported back to Koguryo) "Sargon" "Yes Pat?" " Lets go home" I said. As we traveled home, I copied down our tale, "Treasure hunt" By Pat "Magikal" Majaski
