Tale of Clarion
The sound of the bell will start a journey to the unknown land.

Once upon a time, two young heroes discovered a mysterious magical artifact while they were out exploring: the Clarion. The Clarion was a bell prophesied to lead those who found it to an unknown land full of adventure and wonder. The two heroes had heard of this prophecy, and upon finding the Clarion knew at once that their lives were forever changed.

The two heroes followed the Clarion until they arrived in a misty meadow. As they stared around in wonder, the pair realized that they had been given a remarkable skill: the gift of sight. Although it allowed them to see further and more clearly than they ever had before, neither of them understood why they had been given such a boon -- at least not yet.

The adventurers continue to wander through the frozen meadow, their gift of sight allowing them to easily bypass all the treacherous traps hidden in the mist. Still, the path they walk is a dangerous one -- even their enhanced vision isn't enough to protect them from all the obstacles they will encounter on their journey. But the Clarion has other gifts prepared for the heroes as well. As they carefully pick their way through the frigid glade, they spy a chest just slightly off the path. The Clarion gives a faint chime, and the pair know that it is safe. Inside the chest are enchanted garments, capable of repelling nearly any magic attack. They quickly don these new clothes before setting off once more, emboldened by the Clarion's second gift.

Our heroes continued to make their way across the strange new land, wary of avoiding any traps or obstacles. But as they carefully picked their way through the dangerous path, the pair encountered a terrifying monster that towered over them all. With their enchanted armor and gift of sight, however, the heroes made short work of their attacker. Much to their surprise, the nightmarish creature was protecting a massive hoard of gold! Now wealthy beyond their wildest dreams, the pair continued on their journey with their bags brimming with coins and treasure.

Our heroes were now laden down with treasure, enchanted armor, and incredible powers. Surely the Clarion had nothing left to show them? Still, the pair couldn't shake the feeling that their journey was not quite over just yet. An ominous portent fell over the two as they continued to travel across the strange land, something that they couldn't quite explain. There was no obvious, immediate danger, but they just somehow knew that something big -- and powerful -- was lurking in the shadows.

Or perhaps it was just their imaginations...

Leg, Ready for Battle

The Clarion bell chimed a frightened warning as dark shadows advanced on our heroes. They gripped their weapons tight and exchanged a look, each of them aware that this was the final, climactic battle. With the Clarion ringing in their ears, they swung and hacked, slashed and parried; the shadows were everywhere, but their gift of sight and enchanted armor helped them evade their monstrous claws and magic. Finally, as twilight fell on the strange land, the last of the shadows found its incorporeal body pierced by the heroes' magic weapons. It dissipated with a faint hiss, and the battle was finally over. The heroes had fulfilled the prophecy: they had saved this land from the monsters that tormented it. The Clarion began to peal as a second moon suddenly appeared in the night sky. The heroes stared at it in wonder as the Clarion continued to ring, its music sweet and clear. It was peaceful.
