A new day would soon start in Dymentia. The sun slowly rose and the people awoke from their sleep. But not everyone in Dymentia had a good nights rest. In the cities Utopis and Yigrim, two people refuse to sleep and have been awake for over a week now. These people are Iquela, Bearer of Light and Glamia, Bearer of Darkness. It was 18 year ago they felt their Strings split, so the new Strings should be by age by now. In an attempt to find the new Bearers, both Light and Darkness have send out their troops, agents and special forces, scouring the land of Dymentia. Many cities are also filled with posters, asking the people to keep an eye out for the new Bearers.
Glamia contacted one of her most loyal followers through a letter.
''Triana Bouteller, my loyal subject,
As you have probably heard, the new Bearers their powers are finally unlocked. While my soldiers are looking for the new Darkness, I want you to look for the new Light. Do NOT kill him or her. I know the temptation to kill our biggest enemy while it's still weak is very big, but it is not the way. I want, however, that you stall him as much as you can. Slow him or her down in discovering his powers. Or when he or she is on their way to Utopis, make sure that that is slowed down too. This will give Darkness more time to learn, and will give us a heads start.
While I said you couldn't kill him, I never said something about hurting though. Capture and torture is allowed, just don't do it over the top such as last time.
Also, if you're in Yigrim, be sure to visit the stables. There are many different animals I bet you would love to ride. See it as a gift for your families loyalty.
Darkness cover your trail,
Glamia Yia, Bearer of Darkness
Meanwhile Iquela asked the help of two very respectable men, who she asked to come to Utopis. She wanted to tell her request to them personally, for that was her style. These men went by the names of Johan the Kind and Cadeyrn Heldar. She had asked them in a letter to come to Utopis as soon as possible, for she had an important mission for the two, with a hefty fee attached to it. Something that would surely persuade the two.
In the capital city of Life, Livus, the rumors of were spreading. Rumors about the new Light and Darkness being the next-doors kid, or that Darkness would get his butt kicked as soon as people saw him. But this wasn't interesting for Celestine "Celeste" Cinderford. Many people came by her bakery every day, and every time some one would ask her: ''Do you know who the new Light and Darkness are?'' But she had to shake her head in denial. This time, she couldn't say: "Don't tell me something I already know.", for she didn't know it. She'd also seen the posters in the city, asking the people for help finding the new Bearers. Maybe that was something for her? To get away from her dull life? Maybe...?
In Ordo, the news was mainly focused around the new Darkness. The Strings of Psychic never really cared about the Light. ''What string would it be?'', ''Would it be one of us?'' and the main question: ''Who will the King his new ally be?'' But Carus Halbritter could just continue his life in the Libraries of Ordo. Those weren't touched by the rumors or the news. Or did he care? Would the coming of a new Darkness and Light mean more to him? What would his part be in this play?
In the other cities, the questions were the same. Who would the King ally with? And what would that mean for their own Strings or their surrounding lands? Would it come to another war? Or would something special happen since it was the 100th Cycle? All their questions will be answered in the coming years... In the years that a new Dymentia will be formed.
