The Lone Warrior
My name is not important. Actions speak louder then words.
I have never known much about myself and have always been driving to find out more of my past. I am strong and quick tempered and always ready for a fight. But soon, my life was about to change.
One day I was some how transported to a strange island. At first I was angry, killing all the creatures and demolishing farms and crops I saw there. Then the people rebelled and hunted me down. I was a prisoner until one day; a fair maiden came to rescue me. I did not know her at all.
She persuaded the guards to let me go. As we walked on through the forest she told me to be silent. So I obeyed. Finely after what seemed like an eternity, we arrived at a large ship on a dock. I had never been here before.
When we road the ship, in no time at all we arrived at a fast new land. She said it was called White Stone. We traveled on and on through the woodland. Passing many creatures like White Rabbits and Pumas. Then she told me to stop at nightfall.
So we set up camp. I asked her what her name was but she did not reply. I fell asleep shortly afterward. When I woke it was sunrise and she was no where to be found. I panicked and ran about in search of the fair maiden.
As I searched I found an old city. It lay in ruins all around me. I walked on and found 6 large pillars of stone each with an angel beside it. Curious I inspected it some more and found a statue of a horse with wings. There was a great glowing light radiating in front of it.
I felt as if it would take me somewhere. But I could not find any way “in” so to speak. Frustrated I fell asleep hoping things would be clearer in the morning.
When I woke up this time the beautiful maiden was standing watching me. “So you pursued me?” She asked, her voice loud and powerful. I started to stutter, “Y-yes, w-who are y-you? Why am I so a-attracted to you?”
She laughed and said, “All beings are attracted to me, for I am the goddess of Light, Defense, Life, Truth, and Love. I summoned you here as I do to all promising warriors-”
“But what for? What are we supposed to do?” I interrupted. Smiling she continued, “I need you to uphold the greatest task in this world. Monsters are raging all around this world killing countless innocents. You must bring an end to this. Find a way to defeat the monsters once and for all.”
She cast a spell and suddenly I found myself wearing glittering armor. A great sword in one hand and a large shield in my other. “Now go, and fight. You cannot die for you are an eternal; deathless. Just as they are. And all in these, Eternal Lands.”
So I journeyed from that desolate land with one task in mind: Kill Monsters. It seemed like the only way of life from now on. Food lost its taste, all fun of my life seemed to seep away. All I could concentrate on was my one goal.
I fought hard. One day I died, fighting a skeleton, and found myself in a hellish place. There was lava all around me and I found half my items were gone. In a rage I ran through that place looking for a way out.
Before long I found a great portal. As I stepped through it I found my self back on the island that the goddess had saved me from. When I stepped out, I was greeted by an Elf. I didn’t catch her name. She asked me if I was sent by Aluwen too.
“Who is Aluwen?” I asked. “She is the goddess in the temple who sends adventurers on the Great Task.” I nodded.
“Then we should join forces! I have a guild fully armed and ready to fight!” She said, excited. I asked her what a guild was and she laughed. “A guild is a team of people who are very strong. We go about doing the god’s will.
This sounded too good to me to be true. I always thought this quest was mine alone. But it seems others were sent too. I agreed heartily and we walked off to the ship. From then on my life was better then ever.
As I said earlier, names are not important. Actions are greater then words. That is why I shape and carve my destiny and history by getting stronger and combating the Evil Ones. It is what I do, I am an Eternal.
