(For ease of reading for those with mobile devices, this written work will be one story section per chapter.) It, had all started with a quest, to find the hallowed sanctuary spoken of, within the dreams of five individuals. Aederan, a world of green forests and deep blue oceans would soon be under the threat of war, from the forces of darkness. 
     The fate of the world, rests with a girl, a prince, a princess, a swordsman, a Centaur and seven others. For, it was decided seven friends would accompany, the chosen ones. It was assumed the journey would be lengthy and perilous.
     It wasn't till later, before the brave adventurers grasped how much of an understatement, those words would
 be. Despite perilous weather, endless pursuit and numerous attempts by the enemy to destroy them, most of the original twelve had managed to survive. Berren alone, of the original twelve had fallen in the attempt. Through the combined efforts of humans, Centaurs, the newly discovered Dreena, and lastly were the Chand, they had prevailed. Albeit, the price paid by their newbuy allies and friends had been high.                  
        Changa pondered for a moment what they had faced and their subsequent actions. The Centaur Wind Walker smiled, as he realized Elliana was providing them with exactly what they needed to complete the quest and prepare for war.
