T WAS A TIME LONG AGO
, far longer than many can recall, a time when legends were history and mythical beast’s roamed the world. But although magical and enchanting, it was a time of Great War. As the goblins race numbered and their wickedness swept across the land, many fought back with no avail. Mabruk Alexandros, a born warrior stood up to the goblin horde stopping them from conquering his home village. Mabruk gathered the warriors from his village, but it was hopeless. Far too strong the goblins defeated Mabruk’s forces. Refusing to surrender, it was then Mabruk left his village and searched for warriors as mighty as he. And thus was formed the new army, led by Mabruk and four other great leaders of their time, the new army of four races all united to face the goblins for one cause, to save the world. But hidden within this war was a more sinister evil. One that had used this war as a cover for his own master plan, and as he used this war and the beings whom fought in it as pawns… he waited….
OBLINS ARE CREATURES
that live underground in dark, dank mountains and mines. Goblins have amazing eyesight in even the darkest of places, and they climb walls as if they were spiders. Goblins are not the smartest of creatures; they rarely think for themselves and always with an ally who promises them great things.
ong ago high in the mountains of Heshuezo, mountains so dark and sinister that even the bravest of warriors refused to venture through them, lived the goblins. The goblins were cowardly but evil heartless creatures. They hunted at night and prayed upon the weak; from time to time the goblins would gather in numbers to hunt a mighty warrior for their wicked pleasing.
The goblin army, who at one point was no real threat to the world, had banded together with the help of an unknown ally and declared war against four land dwellers—man, centaur, Amazon, and lycan. The goblins, with the help of their powerful ally, traveled down from their mountains and began to overpower their opponents. Man lost the first battle in a blood bath. In their last attempt, man took the battle to Heshuezo where the goblins had regrouped and faced off in a most heated battle with the Goblins.. The next battle raged on for days with no end in sight.
A truce had been set by the four races, for just a short time ago they themselves were at war with one another. Mabruk Alexandros, leader of the human army, was a young warrior with a family back at his home village. Mabruk was a powerful speaker and an amazing leader and for many months he had led the human army against the goblins. Tobias the centaur king, too, had a family back home, and the rising centaur nation banded together with man to battle against the goblins. Cassandra, the Amazon queen, stood incredibly tall and graceful; her beauty was striking, and by her people she was made queen—the youngest queen to lead the Amazons into battle. Maddoc, the lycan leader, stood a giant nine feet tall with shaggy grayish black fur. He was the most powerful lycan of his clan. Maddoc in battle was ferocious and swift.
The four nations gathered their best warriors to face the fearsome goblin army. The rising of the goblins had taken the land by storm, and if only the four nations had paid attention and not bickered amongst themselves the war may never have been.
The battle raged on throughout the dry summer night; the slaughtered bodies of goblins, centaurs, Amazons, and lycans lay dead on the fields. The lycans howled and slashed the goblins; Amazons shot arrows and launched giant spears from the surrounding hills; men and centaur took the battle head on to the goblins.
The goblin king stood quivering in fear behind the last standing goblin warrior. Mabruk came forward and at last pierced the goblin warrior; Mabruk pulled his sword out of the goblin warrior’s chest and glanced upward at the goblin king. Tobias, Cassandra, and Maddoc ran towards Mabruk as he began chastise the goblin king.
“You have broken every law of man, centaur, Amazon, and lycan!” Mabruk screamed to the goblin leader “And for that. Your sentence is death!” Mabruk’s booming voice echoed through the mountains.
The goblin leader fell to his knees. “Please…” it said with a trembling voice. “Have mercy on me.”
“You coward,” the centaur Tobias said to the goblin. Mabruk spit in its face. The creature looked down in shame.
“Shall we grant this creature mercy?” Cassandra asked in disgust. “Kill him,” said the lycan leader. “…and be rid of this plague once and for all.”
Mabruk, Tobias, Cassandra, and Maddoc argued for several hours about what should become of the goblin leader.
“What should be done with this foul rat?” Mabruk asked.
