I write...it's my thing. It's been my thing since I was eleven years old and I don't plan on losing this thing.

“I will ask you again,” Fedun sighed in exasperation, his index finger and thumb on the bridge of his perfectly formed nose. “Where did you come from?”
Ava sat in a chair across from the Elf General's desk. She had one leg crossed over the other, and her arms folded. She wasn't even looking at him.
“I told you, I don't remember.” Ava lied. She was doing what Silas told her. Hoping that the Elves would buy an amnesia story better than the truth. “I have no idea what happened before your buddy here woke me up.” She gestured to Dorias who was standing idly by the closed door.
The room was bigger than her cell downstairs. The large windows looked out to a forest as far as her eyes could see. There were buildings set into the thick tree trunks. Elves milled about along the rope bridges from one building to another. Somehow, when Ava envisioned a

The Port Allen Tavern was a quiet establishment owned by a man in his mid-to-late fifties. He sat silent behind the bar with his nose in his ledger. Business had been slow the past few nights. He grumbled over the numbers as the tavern's torchlight flickered along the old wooden planks of the walls. The Keep felt the breeze and looked up, his circular glasses sliding down his nose. Tired old eyes beheld a cloaked man, his face shrouded in shadow.
The Keep said sternly. The visitor took off his rain soaked cloak and hung it on a hook by the door. He stepped into the torchlight and the Keep took off his glasses. Before him stood man of thirty-two. He was bald, purposely. His clear gray eyes looked over the empty tavern. He wore a pair of black pants and a loose beige tunic over his slight shoulders. A sword at his side which he removed and sat by the door.

“I dare you.” Carol said to Ava as they stood outside the restaurant where they both worked. Ava Lewis – a woman of thirty, shifted from one foot to the other. She peered nervously at the fortune teller across the street. A breeze blew back a strand of dark red hair that had fallen from a loose ponytail at the base of her neck.
“I couldn't.” She said. She looked at the woman with styled blond hair. She was older than Ava with tired blue eyes beneath heavy blue eyeshadow. They both wore black pants and a dark green polo shirt. Ava's was two sizes too big with splotches of bleach here and there. “You know I don't take much stock in psychics and magic.” Ava said, her arms crossed over her stomach.
“Don't you want to know your future?” Carol pressed, her eyes twinkling mischievously under the streetlights of the parking lot.

Millenia ago – before you or I – the world was ruled by dragons. Four powerful beasts that embodied the four natural elements – Fire, Earth, Water and Air. In these days magic was more common-place. Elves whispered to faeries, goblins and ogres ruled the kingdom of the night and humans were merely tolerated. A Chosen few, called the Shayavani, were able to harness the wild magics and use it for good. The four dragons only answered to them.
But then the power shifted.
A human Shayavani used his gift over the magic in dark ways. He placed a spell over the powerful fire dragon, Urich. Because of this, the fire dragon answers to him alone. The human, known as Darvias, bids Urich into complete destruction. Villages were destroyed, lives are lost. Elves and their faery companions were driven into hiding, Their beautiful forests now their prisons. Goblins and ogres became Darvias' enslaved hench
