I remmember the day when my cousin Mertonius died, saving Krynn from the destruction he wrought when his magic and the Dark Queen's own affected the rift he created to reach Her world...

It was like this...

Mertonius faced the Dark Queen, who is in all Her Majesty. With the power she revealed I was forced to bow down before her. She may not be my god but she is a one of the immortal ones as well.

But not my cousin...

He stood there, his face bare, without the awful mask that hid his features. I can still remember the words that they exchanged...

"Greetings my Dark Queen." His eyes glittered with controlled rage as he spun the powerful artifact he created, the Orb of Fate, in his hand.

"GREETINGS TO YOU TOO, MY MERTONIUS. YOU ARE QUITE BRAVE NOW, WITH THAT PUNY ORB OF YOURS. WHAT WOULD YOU DO WITH IT? PLAY CATCH WITH ME?"

A grim determination that has never crossed my cousin's face appeared so suddenly on his visage.

"No my Queen. You do know what I have come for..."

"OH, YOU CAME FOR THE SOUL OF YOUR BELOVED WIFE... HOW... ENCHANTING... BUT WITH WHAT POWER WOULD YOU USE AGAINST ME? THE POWER OF THAT PATHETIC ORB THAT YOU HAVE MISERABLY CREATED?"

My cousin just grinned as he leveled the artifact against the Queen of Darkness, Takhisis.

I can never fully recall how the duel went, but what I can fully remember was the outcome. Mertonius won and destroyed the crown of darkness, freeing his wife's soul. He actually defeated and banished the Queen from the world she fledd to after the Chaos War. But there was a severe repercusion to the power he freed from the orb of fate. The rift he created to bridge Krynn and the mirror world, Dasar, (in our language it was called Dasar) ruptured and threatened to collapse both the worlds.

He did what he must do to save both worlds and threw the orb into the swirling chaos of oblivion created by the rupture. The energy backslash ravaged him and sent him back to another Krynn, a Krynn damaged by the energies he released (OOC: This is the background of the "NEW SURROUNDINGS" by Lady Lidora)an alternate Krynn...

My cousin died in the arms of the woman who took up the soul of his wife...

Now, I turn to you adventurers. Aid me in finding the 12 missing shards of fate. The shards that would be able to combine and become the Orb Of Fate and bring back my cousin and return Krynn as it was before...

The twelve shards are:

Shard of Fire: Master of Fire
Shard of Ice: Master of Water
Shard of Winds: Master of Air
Shard of Earth: Master of Earth
Shard of Order: Master of Order
Shard of Chaos: Master of Chaos
Shard of Life: Master of Life
Shard of Death: Master of Death
Shard of Darkness: Master of Darkness
Shard of Light: Master of Light
Shard of Mind: Master of Mind
Shard of Soul: Master of Soul

I have obtained the Shard of Life. Five of the shards were scattered on Krynn and six more were scattered on the alternate realm.

You must help me... To return the balance... To restore all that should be...

Marcus pops out of nowhere and drops on Mikhal.

"YO CUZ!!! GOING TO FIND MERTONIUS'S ORB OF FATE?"

He stands up and brushes the dirt of him.

"I'll join too..."

"What do they look like? Because if they look like that-"
*points to the shard in Mertonius' hands*
"Then I saw one back in...in...somewhere...where was that....?"

OOC: If this is a alternate reality, we can play spinoffs of our characters right?

The Thorn agreed, he would search for the shards too! Maybe that would prove to the council that he could be accepted into the order instead of wearing his robes of brown. He had been turned down for a job he wanted, a defender of magic, the second of the silver robes. The master of the tower had found someone else more worthy.

Now the renegade had a new quest, a new mission in life.

Swifter approached the comany cautiously. He was rather large for a fox, his size enforced by a pair of large, black wings. Behind him stepped his friend, Cai'de, her black hair now chopped short. "We will search." The human said hesitantly. Her lupine counterpart nodded, his ears swiviling.
