The Story of Our Age
Dragons are seen as nothing more than another monster. Something that should be killed before it eats the livestock and burns the houses. Something that is nothing but a mindless killing machine. But little do humans know, they are wrong. Dragons are by far the most complex of all animals, both in mentality and anatomical structure. Dragons are much more than what people see. Dragons come in countless breeds, colors and sizes, and with each individual dragon comes a new personality unlike any other. Dragons are a true symbol of power, creativity and greatness. We are going to take a look into the lives of dragons, somewhere in Europe, where they reside in the many forests, mountains and lakes. In Medieval England, where such stories of knights and dragons sprung, we will document the rise and possible fall of the world's most magnificent animals.
We will not exclude humans from our stories, however. There will be attacks, raids, and during incredibly rare events...friendships. Some humans may hold a fascination with dragons that is unrivaled, to the point where they will put themselves in danger to discover, learn and let their passion grow. If we are lucky, we may find a select few, or even just one, that will shape the way we look at dragons...forever.
The Land on Which We Stand
To the east, a kingdom of stone and marble with a great wall surrounding it. This is the land where trade is plentiful and where many make a long journey to sell their wares. This is the kingdom of Iselyr. To the north, a mighty forest that borders the large village of Erathion, inhabited by dragons and other such fantastical beasts. And finally, to the south and west, a collection of mountains that stretch for miles, where many mine and collect in search of gems, metals, and delicious spring water. Many a beast inhabits the mountains, but dragons are still a rare sight anywhere, even in the mountains and forests. These mountains also stretch around the entire land, earning it's name, "The Border". Anywhere beyond the Border is uncharted and undiscovered. Together, this continent of land forms the world as we know it, called Aravel. No one ever ventures outside the Border, but many younger folk are curious, as the dragons are the only ones that can leave and go past the Border. But who knows why they haven't done so? Who knows why the border is never touched? Perhaps we will never know, since the dragons are the only ones to know such a secret...
