The Orb Saga
*You are standing at the edge of a cliff.*
<Character>: It's the perfect day for adventure. Great things are coming my way... I can just feel it!
*A dragon swoops past you from beyond, flying back around to land before the cliff's edge where you stand.*
<Character>: A Dragon?!
<Character> (thinking): I thought level <Level> characters were supposed to start off fighting rats or something easy!
*The dragon roars.*
<Character> (thinking): Here it comes... the Dragon is about to attack! Time to test my skills as a <Class>!
*The dragon instead lowers its head against the cliff's edge, allowing its passengers—a small red moglin and a lady with a curious black box—to join you on land.*
Twilly: The path is clear, Priestess!
*The Priestess approaches Twilly and yourself on land.*
Priestess: Please pardon us friend, we are just passing through.
*The Priestess and Twilly continue on their way, and the dragon raises its head again to stare at you.*
<Character> (thinking): ???
Dragon (thinking): I REALLY SHOULD JUST EAT THIS ADVENTURER NOW. IT WOULD SAVE ME A LOT OF TROUBLE IN 30 OR SO LEVELS.
Dragon (thinking): GRRRRR.... BUT SHE DID MAKE ME PROMISE.
*The dragon roars again with that last thought, and returns to the skies.*
Dragon (thinking): SEE YOU IN ABOUT 30 LEVELS... HA HA HA HA HA HA!
<Character>: What was all that about!? (And do I at least get experience points for sitting through this?)
If you are Level 1:
+10 Bonus EXP
You have received 10 bonus experience points. You can earn more points by defeating monsters and completing quests. Once you fill up your experience bar, you will LEVEL UP and become more powerful!
If you are above Level 1:
+0 Bonus EXP
You have received 0 bonus experience points. You've seen this before.
<Character>: Woah... thanks!
*You are taken inland to follow the Priestess and Twilly.*
TIP: Click on the ground where you would like to walk.
If you approach the glimmering bag:
Found 20 GOLD!
It is your lucky day! You can use gold to buy weapons and other items at shops.
*You continue to head further inland to follow the Priestess and Twilly.*
Priestess: Oh my. Who put this carpet in the middle of the forest?
Twilly: Oh noes! That is not a carpet Priestess... it is a Gorillaphant!
Twilly: I will protect you Priestess!
*With a large POW!, Twilly is punted by the Gorillaphant, and lands just before you, stars spinning around his head.*
Offer to Help!
<Character>: Join my party little fella.... let's save her! Punt it back...
- Twilly joins you as a pet.
Twilly joins your Party!
You can have up to two friends and a pet join you in battle. You will only see yourself while walking around, but everyone will be there during battles!
<Character>: ? *You continue even further inland and battle the Gorillaphant that punted Twilly.*
You are the meanest player... EVER! Seriously... he was soooo cute! At least you hit the Gorillaphant in the face... oh no... you made it even more mad! You better attack quick while it is still a little dazed!
Priestess: Thank you for saving me brave <Class>. May I know the name of my hero?
Twilly: But Priestess... you said his/her name was <Character> and he/she is the one who is destined to...
<Character>: *blink* What?
Priestess: *sigh* Twilly....
Priestess: Alas, we are out of time. Good <Class>. I must ask an important favor of thee.
Priestess: Would you please let Captain Rolith know that we're taking the shortcut? He's just ahead in Oaklore Keep.
Priestess: I am certain we will cross paths again.
Twilly: Especially since he/she is going to take that Black Dragon Box and...
Priestess: *sigh* Twilly....
<Character>: Well... I doubt my day can get any stranger than this. I should go to the Keep ahead and deliver the message to Rolith.
*You head upwards towards Oaklore Keep.*
