Malaysia: Yes my love, we are ready.
King A.: Proceed.
Toran: We have just recently gathered information on the Raven's next plan of attack from one of our spies.
King A.: Good, this shall give us the upper hand.
Toran: It seems that the Ravens have created some kind of navy, as you know the capital is surrounded by ocean. This may be a problem for us.
Malaysia: Whatever do you mean?
Toran: What I mean is that the Ravens can catch us off guard if we do not take precautions, your majesty!
Malaysia: I see so what is the plan?
Toran: We need someone to travel to the Buccaneer's Den, in the Sea of Swords.
King A.: Hmm.. why not send Nash, he needs a good adventure ro awaken his spirits.
Malaysia: Don't you think that the task is qualifying for a seventeen-year old?
King A.: The sooner the better.
Malaysia: Well then your highness!(sarcastically) I guess we have no choice.
Toran: Good! I shall prepare a party of travelers for the prince.
Scene II: Chancellor Toran has prepared a party of travelers for Prince Nash. King Amherst has prepared a farewell party for his son and the brave travelers. Everyone in the kingdom is attending for this wondrous occasion, which may put an end to the treat of the Ravens.
King Amherst: (from atop of the royal balcony)Welcome one, welcome all to this joyous occasion! I am glad that all of you could make it. Enjoy yourselves!
Malaysia: (to Nash) Have you prepared yourself for the long journey that awaits you?!
Nash: Of, course mother aren't I always prepared!? I am ready for the worst.
Malaysia: Well, just don’t get too cocky, you may lose your head.
Nash: Ha! You worry too much, mother. I can fend for myself!
Toran: Our guests of honor have arrived, Sir Nash!
Nash: Good. You don’t know if any ladies will be accompanying
me on my quest do you Toran?
Toran: I believe there was, but I am not absolutely sure as of yet.
Malaysia: Come now, let us greet our guests.
Scene III: The pioneers have arrived . They are now meeting with the royal family of Roshtaria. They all meet for the first time hoping that they will lead a prosperous journey.

Malaysia: Greetings! It's nice to meet you all!
King Amherst: Indeed, you look like a strong group of fellows.
Nash: (eyeing carefully) Hmm… so shall we introduce ourselves?
Man: Indeed! They call me Gregarious.
Nash: I see. Who are the other two people accompanying you?
Gregarious: Oh, sorry about that. The man to my left is Lance and this beautiful young lady to my right is Ellie.
Nash: Interesting. So what exactly is your past experience?
Lance: We are considered a group of mercenaries. We try to maintain justice through all the anarchy in the world. In other words, we are the typical neutral warriors who try to maintain balance.
Nash: (A bit confused) uhh.. I guess that makes sense.
Toran: I have heard you people come highly recommended.
Gregarious: I do not like to brag or anything of the sort, but yes we are considerable…good.
King A.: Well, time grows weary. You must get your rest for you have a long day ahead of you.
Gregarious: Indeed. We must save are energy. One question though. Where exactly are we going to sleep?
Malaysia: Need not worry about that! I have prepared a room for all you!
Gregarious: Thank you, my lady! Shall we turn in?
Scene IV: The new day has arrived! The adventurers have prepared themselves for the long journey ahead, but first they must say their good-byes and gather some last minute information on the mission.
King Amherst: Well son this is it. I would never have expected you to leave me so soon.
Nash: Come on father you don't have to go getting all mushy on me now!
King A.: For once my son, we can call you a man!
Malaysia: Come now, if you do not leave soon you may not arrive on time.
Nash: Okay then!
Gregarious: Then we are off!
Scene V: Our adventurers have set off and have decided to take the fastest known path to travel, The Snake's Trail, which is also the most dangerous path. Now they have encountered a group of bandits and are surrounded.
Nash: This is just great! I hope someone brought some weapons or some kind of defense!
Gregarious: Ha! Never fear, for we never leave home with out our weapons!
Bandit leader: Fools! You best stay where you are and no one will get hurt, unless of course I feel it is necessary!
Bandit#1: You tell him boss!
Bandit L: Silence! Hand over all your money and personal belongings or taste the sharp edge of my blade!
Nash: Why don't you hand over your things! Now!
Bandit L: What in the Athena's name are you talking about?
Nash: Fool! I am robbing you!
Bandit#1: uhh.. Boss!
Bandit#2: Can he do that?
Bandit L: Ha! Who cares… seize them! (I love saying that.hehe)
Gregarious: En garde! Prepare to meet your doom!
Lance: Don't worry about this, I will handle this. Take my sister to safety!
Gregarious: I will stay here and fight with you, Nash you go take Ellie to a safe place!
Nash: Very well! Come now!
Ellie: Be careful brother!
Lance: Don't worry you will see me again I promise!
Scene VI: Nash has fled with Ellie. They have taken cover in a cave nearby a forest, where the bandits came from. They are waiting for Gregarious and Lance to show themselves.
Ellie: I hope everyone is all right.
Nash: I am sure they are. They are one tough team.
Ellie: I never would have imagined having any encounters with bandits on the first day.
Nash: Who are they anyway?
Ellie: They are the Snake Bandits, the worst of their kind. They are allied with the Ravens.
Nash: Really? What, do all the lunatics work together?
Ellie: (smiling) I guess so. I wish the others would hurry up! The sun is setting and I am starting to get cold!
Nash: Here take my cloak and use it to warm you up!
[hands her his cloak]
Ellie: Thank you!
Nash: (blushing) No problem! Why don't you rest, I will tell you when the others arrive.
Ellie: (yawning) That is a good idea! I think I will take that offer. [sets up her sleeping bag]
Nash: Sleep well!
Ellie: [goes to sleep]
Scene VII: The others have returned in one piece. They decided to stay the night in the cave and wake up early the next morning to continue their journey, but this time they are taking a safer route.
Gregarious: I hope we do not encounter anymore bandits!
Nash: How exactly did you fight those guys off?
Gregarious: I guess I haven't told you then.
Nash: Told me what?
Gregarious: I was the leader of the Falcons.
Nash: The rebellion group?
Nash: Why are you helping us then?
Gregarious: I have realized the error in my ways.
Nash: I am glad you our on our side now.
Gregarious: I am not on anyone's side. I just try to make sure no one gains too much power.
Nash: I see. How did you meet Lance and Ellie?
Gregarious: I have known them since they were children, in fact I fathered them. When I was part of the Roshtarian Army I found them in one town we seized. Realizing that their parents had died in the process, I took as my own. At first, the king would not permit it, but after while I convinced him.
We have been together ever since.
Lance: Indeed. He taught Ellie and me how to wield a weapon. I am dreaming of someday becoming a knight when I get older.
Ellie: A man named Warren also taught me. He showed my how to use the power within myself to change reality, the form called magic.
Nash: Magic is forbidden! I was told Stragos, a great evil power from the underworld, Mesh, created it.
Ellie: Wait a minute, who told you this nonsense?
Nash: My father and the priest.
Ellie: Oh, really? The real enemy is the Salamander!
Nash: How can you say such a thing!
Ellie: The Salamander is a great monster that is trying to destroy our land.
Nash: It would never do such a thing! The Salamander's power protects us from evil forces of magic!
Ellie: How do you think the Salamander and its powers were created? They were created by magic!
Nash: (giving up on the conversation quits talking)
Gregarious: Would you to stop your fighting! You are giving me a migraine!
Lance: I was looking at the map and realized that we only have about a day and a half travel time left!
Gregarious: Good I hope we get there soon. Well, it looks like dawn will arrive soon, we better make haste and find shelter for the night.
Lance: According to the map, there should be an inn right around the bend.
Scene VIII: The travelers have made it to the inn. They paid for two rooms and immediately went to sleep. Now it is a new day and hopefully the last for our adventurers. They have gathered all their things and headed for the Buccaneer's Den.
Lance: I hope we get there soon, and to think this is one of our short adventures!
Gregarious: Quit complaining, we will be there soon!
Nash: You never notice how big the world is until you travel it.
Gregarious: Trust me son, this is just a small section of it!
Lance: Anyway! Lets talk about something more important, like what we are going to do when we get to the Buccaneer's Den.
Ellie: We can figure that out when we get there, all we have to do is give them the king's letter right?
Lance: Yes, but what if he turns it down, then what?
Ellie: I don't know.
Man: Perhaps you should look ahead your path.
Ellie: That voice! Master Warren!
Warren: Indeed! It is I!
Ellie: It has been so long!
Warren: Yes my child, it has. I have missed you my child. I cannot stay long though.
Ellie: Why master?
Warren: I have come to warn you of something important! A great evil has returned from another world! It feeds of the planet's energy and grows stronger until the planet dies. You Ellie are the last of my disciples.
Ellie: This is terrible, but what can I do.
Warren: Although, you can not destroy this evil you can stop it from arriving. Right now it is flying towards the earth in a meteor the size of the capital. You must stop it at once!
Ellie: I must travel to Buccaneer's Den with the others!
Warren: I am afraid we do not have time for that. My power grows weak, if we do not act soon I am afraid it will be too late.
Ellie: I understand what I must do. Nash, forgive me for leaving, but this is for the planets sake. I hope we meet again.
Nash: You can bet on it!
Warren: We must go now, I hear the cry of the planet!
Ellie: Very well, farewell everyone, I will miss you all very much and good luck to you!
Scene IX: After the encounter with Warren, Ellie left. The travelers have now reached their destination, the Buccaneer's Den. Upon arriving they have encountered the leader of the pirate clan known has the Gray Hawks and have been allowed entrance into the den.
Leader: What is your business here?
Nash: I am Nash, son of King Amherst.
Leader: I see, but what does the king want from me, did I to pay my taxes or something?
Nash: It is nothing of the sort. He asks for your alliance against the Ravens. Here read this letter.
Leader: I see… Interesting. I will help!
Lance: Now we can go home right?
Man: (with an evil voice) you wish.
Gregarious: Who's there?
Man: You don't remember me? How sad, it is I vanderdash!
Gregarious: It can't be!
Vanderdash: Do you not believe your very own eyes?
Gregarious: how… in the heck could you have survived that explosion.
Vanderdash: You are right. That is impossible for any HUMAN. Then again, human I am not. [Evil laugh]
Gregarious: What? That’s impossible!
Vanderdash: Its is quite possible, you see I have lived for a thousand years. One little explosion wasn’t going to kill me.
Gregarious: You're the king's brother right? Then how are you immortal while he is not?
Vanderdash: Simple, what if I told you that I was not his brother and yet his father. You see, I created him with my power. About eight hundred years ago, I met a man named Corax. He promised me my youth and eternal life. As any old man would, I excepted. The life he gave me came with a price. When it was the time for Deva to come I must join them in destroying Athena. I have agreed, and am here to fulfill my promise!
Gregarious: You mad man! You must be working with the Ravens then.
Vanderdash: Why not join me? We can grant you eternal life as well!
Nash: Oh, great Salamander deliver use from this evil that has fallen upon us! Burn with the flame of judgment! Show no mercy!
Vanderdash: Fool! You think my pet Salamander will help you?
Nash: No! It can't be!
Vanderdash: Yes! Its existence in the end is only for maximum destruction! You now will fall to its power! Salamander, heed the call of you master! Destroy these fools! Show them the strength of evil!
Nash: We’re in for it now!
Scene X: The final showdown has begun. The adventurers have no choice but to fight. Now they will put their skills to the test in a fight against the mighty Salamander, the fiercest creature on the face of the entire planet. If they fail the world may not see the next morning.
Nash: Lets make a break for it!
Gregarious: We have no choice, we must fight, for if we don't it will destroy the kingdom!
Lance: Right! Let's go!
Nash: For Roshtaria and the world! Let's fight!
Gregarious: (pulling out his sword) Ha! You will feel my blade's wrath!
Lance: (reaching for his long sword) Feel the power of the Knights of Rostaria!
Nash: (reaching for his sword) I guess its time for me to use my father's gift.
Gregarious: That sword! It is the Sword of Hope! We may win have a chance after all!
Lance: (charging) This is for mother and father!
Vanderdash: Ah, the Sword of Hope! One who wields its wonderful power is invincible, or so they say.
Nash: We shall soon see! I will not lose this battle!
Scene XI: After a long hard battle the war had been won. Unfortunately, Lance and Gregarious did not survive, for the mighty Salamander ate them. Nash has returned home to his life of royality.
King Amherst: I am very proud of you my son! You have shown to be a true man.
Nash: Thank you father, but I do not deserve applause for what I did. The land is still in great danger. There is still more I must do. Vanderdash got away, I must find him. I also must find Ellie for she is the only true friend I have left.
King A.: I see. If that is your wish I will not stop you, but rather offer my services.
Toran: Your majesty, it is time for the celebration.
King A: I am on my way! Come now, my son.
Nash: I am sorry father, but I cannot go. I have nothing to celebrate. I have decided to go on my journey today. I do not want to remain a prince. I want to become a pioneer and explore the world.
King A.: I understand. I will explain to your mother. You best leave now before she comes. I love you son.
Nash: I love you too father. Give mother my love.
King A: I will, I promise! Farewell my son!
