✦ Chapter 1 ✦
✦ The Castle ✦
Many time has passed since the crystal was healed.
Gen and Kira passed to another world but before they left they ruled for many trine in this one.
The crystal and the land were pure and good, and a new age of Gelfling was born within its light.
As the New age of Gelfling once more began to populate the land, the Gelfling formed clans as they had long ago and began separated the land.
And now, a Young Gelfling named Neoma begins her journey.
Neoma lived in the surrounding village of the Castle of the Crystal. She lived in a small resourceful home in its light.
Neoma enjoyed to write and would often sit outside of her home on a starlit night looking up at the Castle of the Crystal which radiated a pure white light, Neoma used this as inspiration for her writings as she often dreamed of living within the Castle itself. Neoma wrote in the ancient writings of the Mystics, a language that was passed down to her through many ages of Gelfling.
Neomas eyes were of a pure obsidian black which allowed her and many like her to see clearly when the night frequently overcame the land.
Days have become much shorter over the past trine as the dying sun approaches its final cycle.
Neoma is once again called to the Castle of the Crystal into its throne room.
In the throne room the Crystal Queen sat. A direct lineage of Gen and Kira.
A lineage that was apparent in blood but not in spirit, despite the Queens disposition Neoma respected her greatly.
The queen short of stature appeared slumped within the Crystal Thone surrounded by her Crystal Guards.
“OOH, Here she is. in all her glamour” exclaimed the Queen in a sarcastic tone
“Could you have not atlas attempted to dress for the occasion? those rags”
Chip scurried behind trailing Neoma and climbed on her shoulder to get a better view.
Chip was a Creature of Thra, he was a small ball of fur with a prolonged tail and sporadic feathers. Chip had been Neomas friend for many Trine since she was a small Gelfling when she would venture out into the desert lands to play and imagine being a great adventurer.
The Queen winced at the thought of creatures within her throne room.
“Get THAT THING OUT!” ordered the Queen
“I’ll come get you Chip”
Chip scurried back out of the long throne room
“I didn’t come here to humour you, tell me why i’m here” Neoma said directly
“As you will be aware of or perhaps not, there is a great conjunction approaching and i’m in a fortunate position to know exactly what is going to happen. The sky will come alive and the suns will manifest themselves as physical beings. They will fight one another and the dying sun shall fall. When the sun dies we will lose power. And if we are attacked by another Gelfling clan we may lose the castle.”
“I want you to find the body and harness its energy, bring it back here. For your efforts i will give you the greatest honour i am able to give. I will make you a guardian of the crystal. You will live here within these walls under my ruling ”
Neoma had always hoped of such an opportunity, having worked for the Queen on many errands already.
“It is my honour to accept your proposal” Neoma bowed
“Now, approach the Crystal Throne”
The Queen pulled a tray to her side. The tray contained a Crystal pot filled with a natural tar substance. The Queen inked the markings of the Guardians of the Crystal upon the face of Neoma.
The Queen gave Neoma two small items, one of which was a pendant
“You may call of the Crystal of Truth with this pendant”
The other of which was a pencil with a Crystal topper
“And this will help light your way in darkness”
“Now GO, You will not be the only one looking for the fallen sun so you must go immediately. The sun will fall on the outskirts of the wilderness so follow the New Moon”
