A stone angel rises from the earth–a forgotten wonder buried in a forgotten forest. The lantern’s flame burns on, age after age, extinguished by neither wind nor rain. The animals are drawn as though the angel sings to them in a voice only they can hear. Would people be drawn just the same? How did this angel get here…and what power does it hold?

In this pristine, untouched landscape flows a river of fire. It is said that from it one of humankind’s greatest enemies–the dragon–was raised. Born from fire, they do not fear it, but instead wield it as a weapon. All but the bravest and the most foolish live in fear of their reign over these mountains.

But the river of fire is also the key to their defeat. It is said that any blade or arrow tip forged from the river’s heat, then cooled in the frigid waters at its end, are strong enough to fatally pierce a dragon’s thick hide.

Beware to those who dare seek out this place of legend, for it is carefully guarded. Many have tried, and most have failed. The heat of the river is not the only challenge you’ll find waiting…

A cavernous opening yawns in the mountainside, beckoning the brave and the foolish to enter. Above it hangs the ominous carving of a dragon–perhaps a warning as to what lurks in the shadows beyond. Will you dare to cross the rickety wooden bridge and test your fate? If so, what do you find on the other side?

She stands at the water’s edge…waiting. Waves swirl and churn against the rocks, sending up spray that leaves glistening beads on her hair and clothes. In the distance, dark clouds begin to gather over the water and the wind picks up. The pungent salt-smell of the sea mingles with the scent of the coming rain. Let it fall. Her legs are planted firmly against the stone beneath her feet as she grips her staff tightly in hand. She will continue to wait until the dark of night and the encroaching tide force her to retreat. What is she waiting for? Something that will come to her across the water…or up from its murky depths?

A lone warrior stands on the river bank, sword at the ready. Through the shifting white mist he sees the enemy. They’re coming. The dense fog is hiding the full size of their force, but he already knows he’s greatly outnumbered. Even so, he must stand firm. The lives of everyone he cares about are dependent upon his strength and cunning. He must hold the enemy back as long as he can. No doubt they have already sized him up and think their victory will be an easy one. But he has a surprise planned for them the moment they hit the river. Will he manage to prevail in spite of the odds? Or are these deep breaths of morning mist destined to be his last?

A wolf sits in wait by the grave of his master; a warrior in life, a hero in death. All around the stone are the swords his comrades set in place to honor him, and to pledge their continued loyalty. Each man is ready to take their sword back up and swear their fealty anew when they meet again in the next life. Yet as the days and weeks pass, each one of them eventually departs. There are more battles to fight, and life must continue. Not for the wolf.

Many out of concern tried to lure him into the living world with them, offering food, and affection. But a wolf only has one master, and his told him to never leave his side. And so the wolf waits. Death is meaningless. He knows what the others do not–what no human could. The ancient lore of his kind says that there is no more sacred bond than that between a wolf and a worthy master. Loyalty beyond reason, beyond hope, even beyond death, will be rewarded.

As he waits alone in the dark of the night, a light suddenly shines all around. It does not come from the distant moon, nor from any light made by man. The wolf watches warily as a bright beam shoots out from the stone itself. A vague form appears, though he cannot make out what it is just yet. Something is finally happening…are the promises of the ancient lore finally coming to pass?

It is said that deep beneath the ocean waves lies a ship, once made of wood, and rope, and sail…but now only a ghostly vision. It lights the waves before it like fire, leaving dread and darkness in its wake. The rumors say it is cursed; forced to re-trace its doomed voyage for all eternity. Maybe you’ve heard what transgression committed by its captain and crew brought on such a curse. None of the stories seem to agree. Only take care not to go chasing after it, for those who do are doomed to share its fate, sinking down into the inky depths of the sea.
