The Missing Link
This was submitted to me by Atake. It was artfully done, and having personally worked with roleplaying groups before, those who have any penchant for acting or roleplaying should definitely take part.
[EDIT: I linked accidentally to the wrong user profile. It’s fixed now.]
When the world was fresh and young, and legends and their heroes were upheld as they should always be, a tale of a young lad was spreading rapidly.
The lad, a born hero – or so they say - lived his childhood in the safety of the woods. The children of these woods all had their own guardian fairy, but the fact that he hadn’t already suggested that he was different. As days passed, an evil grew and the hero’s fate would soon be decided. He was called by the forest guardian who granted him his own fairy. He collected the first items he needed to truly start his quest in the land he cherished so. The evil was still growing and a young maiden, whom the hero was told to meet, felt it also. She sent him further on his quest, told him that he needed a sword; a sword that would banish evil. But first he would need more strength and courage. The hero made more allies, but not everyone grew to like him.
The day he would return to the maiden he found her running from her home, chased by a dark man. Determined, the hero continued, to save not only the land from evil’s grasp but also the fair maiden. With the help of the wisdom he acquired he was able to retrieve the sword… However, he got sealed away for seven years.
After being awoken by the Sage of Light, he was explained that he would have been too young to wield the sword and conquer the evil that now ruled the land. The sage told him that, in order to save the land and the maiden, he needed to awaken five other sages who would accompany him and help him advance his quest. To get to the first sage he had to return to familiar grounds, back to the forest where he grew up. After saving the forest and awakening one of his old friends as a sage, he continued. He traveled over mountains, through and under water, braved the desert and traveled through time itself. He battled dragons, sorcerers and living corpses. All to awaken familiar allies from the past as the four remaining sages.
Now that all the sages had awakened, he returned to the maiden’s home, finding it completly altered and covered by an evil veil. The sages aided him with braving the tower to get to his enemy, who had been expecting to battle him. The battle was long and the hero was battered, but he rescued the maiden. However, the hate of the hero’s enemy was so strong that he managed to resurrect and demand a rematch. With the help of all the sages and the maiden, the hero once again rose victorious and they sealed away this evil once and for all.
Now that the quest to save the land had been completed, the hero had to travel back seven years in order to live life as it would’ve been without an evil ruler. To this day the hope remains that evil will never rule as it did during those years of darkness.
Legends are one thing to cherish during trying times, when bravery and courage are needed. But what if you yourself could be that hero; what if you could write your own legend and make your own history? Wouldn’t you grasp the chance to stand up against evil?
There is a chance to do so. Take up your weapon and skillfully battle for everything you believe in.
