The Quest for the Dragon Egg
We begin at Anaces. Swept clean by the Earthquake, knows in local tales as Day zero, the land laid barren. a group of villagers went to Anaces to search for the remainings of their culture and the remaining of their loved ones. They never returned from their quest. A second group of villagers, supported by two boats of warriors, conducted the second search.
Only one of the warriors, the strongest of them called Knecki, has returned barely alive, strapped of his weapons and his armor and wout open wounds and burned skin. As he gained strength, helped by the healers, he started remembering the details of what happened. The memories first came in his sleep. He saw huge cracks as the ground under his feet turned into rubble and as the fiery water started flowing over the barren landscape. His screams were silenced by the roars coming from the depths of the cracks and a huge shadow, fast as lighting, was cast upon him. As he gained full memory he told the story: dragons, let loose from their undercover caves where they were locked by the Gods of the ancient times, started covering the sky limits as they flew out of their dungeons. A great threat has come upon the whole Mana world.
The old story goes: you can only fight fire with fire. Ankonno, the old hermit cast out of the village many winters ago, proposed the solution. In order to fight the dragons the one thing most precious to dragons has to be obtained, the dragon egg. For the dragon egg to hatch special skills and magic are required. He proposed: “I will show you the knowledge in exchange for my private training arena where you can send your children to learn.”. And that is how dragon hunters were created.
