Ages ago, in the world of Midgard, a great hero given a powerful weapon by the great lake of good did battle with an evil dragon. They both fought with such strength, and such ferocity that neither could best the other, and for days naught but destruction came from the conflict.
Then, finally, after seven days of battle, the hero struck a telling blow to the dragon’s stomach, the blow was deflected by the dragon’s scales, but those same scales were lost due to the strength of the strike. Unfortunately, this led to the hero being eaten directly afterwards and the battle was no more.Fortunately, however, dragons are inexplicably unable to regrow lost scales, and so the beast, fearing that it may be mortally wounded by another hero returned to its lair.
Now, centuries later, Princess Anabella rules over the great kingdom of Midgard, and it scheduled tonight to give a speech reassuring the peasants that the dragon is naught but legend. Ironically, this speech for peasants takes place at a fancy ball, where no peasants will be attending. Well, atleast she tried. Unfortunately for her, I, the great wizard Exposito, know the legends to be true, and I have foreseen great terror for this night!
Oh no! How horribly ironic that she should be kidnapped tonight! Quickly, Hero, you must go save her! For you have been chosen by the great crystal of good! So you are the only one who can defeat the beast!
You should know, hero, that Princess Anabella wears the necklace of Ragnos, with a gem able to destroy the world if it were to fall into the wrong hands! You must save her, before the dragon ends us all! I mean… assuming he would do that. He’d kind of die himself if he ended the world, and sure he’s evil, but he’s at least looking out for himself, right?
