Tales of Shattered Dreams, Returning at a Future Date

~~Tales of Shattered Dreams~~
-or-
~The Sundered Earth: An RTD Adventure~

You wipe the sweat off your brow as you breathe in the heated air once more. It is the dawn, and the twin suns are visible in the sky above, shining in all their auburn glory on the land below.

You've heard the tales, you've learned from the elders, this world was more than this: thriving civilizations lush with resources, land and power dotted the Earth like a mutual plague. Tales of adventurers and scholarly adepts roamed the land, gathering knowledge by the handful and creating a utopian society wherein all races - monster or myth alike - could live together in a peaceful realm.

Now, however, you are but one of the lucky few who serve under a neutral banner in a hostile world; cloistered in this Bastion of refuge, for your own protection from the evils that lurk on the outside. Cloistered, for the basic reason that you exist. You are blessed with the mark of Ecid, one of the ancient gods who ruled over the Earth. With the power to sway the very notion of fate and time in your actions - whether for good or for ill - you are treated with suspicion, even hunted for that power.

It is said that nothing is permanent, and change affects every being. The status quo aims for a reversion into the past, to undo the mistakes made by their ancestors and to relive that which was once thought lost for eternity. You, however, have your own personal goals.

You hear the call of your leader resound through the area, and decide to meet up with your allies before any work can be done. As you bring your thoughts back to reality, you cannot help but notice others making their way along with you, practicing minor and major cantrips as they move.

But this will have to wait. You know you haven't introduced yourself to him yet, and he would probably need a sheet of identification to begin with. You have been in this fortress for more years than you can count, and teamwork is one thing instilled in your memories for survival.

The world awaits your presence. The Bastion is proud to bear your name.

~The Repository~
-or-
Lore of the Bastion

You enter a room lit by lanterns and orbs of light, floating and drifting lazily in the air. Sunlight flows from the windows and skylights dotting the area. Rows of shelves hold manuscripts, scrolls and other devices used to contain information, preserved behind intangible layers of wards and runic symbols. The place is styled in the architecture of a gothic cathedral.

This was once the only place that reminded you of a world wider than the horizons you see. The Repository houses lore of ages past, including that from the first Age where civilization was at it's fledgling state, where myth and legend were facts and living figures.

Strangely, most of the books or tomes in the Bastion are worn and old, lacking information from within their yellowing pages. The silence of the place calms you.

"Hey steve." You speak into the air.
>Yes?

>That is horrible and disgusting. It will no doubt set you apart and create fear in your team mates. So of course.

Looks very nice Tiruin! I'm very short for time for the next few months though, so I think I will let someone join who'll do your effort justice... (and Dwarmin and Caellath's ehehe)
