They called him Deathsinger. Our world, Ardonia, is a vast land home to many diverse people strange creatures and dangerous monsters. Hidden among the shadows of dense forests beneath the sands of treacherous deserts and frozen within the ancient mountains of the north are secrets and mysteries which have eluded our comprehension throughout the ages. Few of these mysteries, however have attracted such fascination as the Ardoni species for which the land shares its name. The Ardoni possess the unique ability to wield great powers known as Songs. The strongest of these powers were referred to as Prime Songs and were deemed too powerful for the Ardoni to wield freely. Thus they were given to the masters of the four Ardoni clans as a sign of peace and unity. Because of this the clans were blinded to a great danger. From within the fires of the Nether realm an army set out to conquer the Overworld. They vanquished the kingdoms and people of Ardonia as they spread across the land. But they were not to remain unchallenged. The Enderknights returned during these dark times long having been guardians of the Overworld. The two opposing realms clashed with a fury of inconceivable power. Yet the Nether had prepared well for this invasion and even the legendary Enderknights could not stop them. With no hope of victory the kingdoms called upon the Ardoni to wield the Prime Songs. Reluctantly, the clans agreed and held a tournament to determine which Ardoni would become their champion and wield all four Prime Songs. One rose above the rest persistent cunning and powerful. The champion had been found. When presented with the Prime Songs however he revealed himself as Ingressus leader of the long-forgotten and dreaded Voltaris clan. Outraged the masters refused to give Ingressus the Prime Songs for it was due to their misuse of such power that they had been banished long ago. That night while the clans debated their next course of action Ingressus set out alone to reclaim the Prime Songs. One by one he slayed the masters of the Kaltaris Sendaris and Mendoris clan. Through these dark deeds he became known as the Deathsinger. The fourth and final master Aegus Nestoris survived the massacre thus protecting the last and most powerful Prime Song. The Ardoni mourned the tragedy. They vowed to hunt down the Deathsinger and to prevent him from obtaining the final Prime Song. It was at this time that the Voltaris clan returned from exile. However even with their support he knew that he was outmatched. With all of Ardonia now his enemy… there was only one place to turn. The Deathsinger met with King Chronos of the Nether and formed the most powerful alliance ever known. And thus began the Great War. The Enderknights rallied under King Rendor and fought the Nether head on. The humans reassembled their armies The Ardoni clans wielded their Songs of old. The Magnorites came from the south- the Felinas from the west. Some even say… …He was there. But despite everything… the Deathsinger and the Nether armies could not be stopped. The tides of this conflict turned after a young Ardoni joined the fight. Skilled with the Songs Achillean Nestoris was able to unite and lead the armies to victory which earned him the name Tidesinger. With his leadership and the Enderknight forces the nether army was forced to retreat back into the Nether. With no allies the remaining Voltaris fell back to Mount Velgrin. Here the Tidesinger fought the Deathsinger alone and both… were defeated. The Prime Songs were recovered and distributed amongst the clans once more signaling an end to the Great War. Peace was restored to Ardonia and a time for rebuilding and healing began. The wounds caused by the Deathsinger, however will be felt forever. The Great War, 11th Wall of Time Hmm… well, Hawken I fail to see- Hawken…?! U-uh ah y-yes exactly! So you see what this means Thalleous? Hawken… were you sleeping through- Look here! Where do the Walls of Time say the final duel took place? Mount Velgrin… Indubitably! Most legends, including these bungled Walls of Time, fail to state that the final duel took place on the mountain’s peak. Alright… so… what does this mean? I’ve heard rumors of a presence on the peak of Mount Velgrin. Being the naturally curious scholar that I am I sent a few scouts to transform those rumors into facts. That was two weeks ago. And… what was their report? There was no report! None ever returned! Why do you think that is? I’m not- I’m not entirely sure- The Voltaris, Thalleous, the Voltaris! You think the Voltaris are at Mount Velgrin? Indubitably! I’m aware you’ve been hunting Voltaris ever since the Great War ended so I brought you here to inform you of this lead. It has been years since I lost the trail of the Voltaris. I should ride to Mount Velgrin and see for myself. A-a-a-a. Hold up there Thalleous. Although I’m no Chronicler I feel it my duty to accompany you and record what information we find. I would… also like to discover the fate of those I sent to investigate. There’s a chance we’ll encounter the Voltaris and who knows what other perils. Fear not Thalleous for I am prepared to fight! Wait w-wait somewhere around here I have a weapon unless I lost it Ah! Here it is! Very well. Come on then. Most likely this was all just a misunderstanding. This is where I sent the scouts right here Thalleous. Someone was here… recently. I found their supplies. How peculiar. Why would they leave their belongings where others might find them? Because they are still here… You must be Thalleous Sendaris. I’ve heard many things about you. And I have heard nothing about you. Oh I know, I’ve made quite sure of that. So allow me to introduce myself. My name is Tygren Voltaris. As for you Thalleous Sendaris, I know who you are Champion and I know what you’ve done to my clan. Your sword has slain many of my brothers and once I kill you I will take it and slay twice as many of yours! So many years have we prepared for this and you… are not about to interfere.
