always believed in magic. Since I was a young apprentice I have been
surrounded by it. It really helps being open to a sense of wonder
and the places it takes me.
I can not imagine a more wonderful place to be than Krystonia.
Almost everything about it brings a smile to my face. Often I sit
at the end of the day and as the twin moons rise reflect on how lucky
Is it perfect? No, but the good far outweighs the bad. I don't
like to bring up the bad but it is to be found. I would rather talk
about the good. So I will start there.
The wizards are marvelous. Even when things do not go as planned
they plow ahead. Master Wizard Graffyn is their unelected spokesman.
He tries to keep a lid on an overflowing pot of personalities. Negotiating
contracts is an area that he loves, probably too much so for the
dragon Grunch's liking. Rueggan loves to tinker. Anytime something
is found that was left behind by the ancients he gets first crack
at it. Turfen is a master of peaceful slumber while Haaph directs
his powers in more of a mirth making nature. These are only a few
of the wizards who make up the council. They meet at the Obelisk
to deal with many important issues and some not so pressing. I will
let you be the judge of what fits in these categories as you learn
more. Luckily the wizards have been able to combine their powers
to keep the evil N'Borg from taking over all of Krystonia
The Grumblypeg Grunch is definitely the leader of the dragons of
Carin Tor and what a grouch he can be. It is comforting that all
the dragons in Carin Tor aren't just like him. He blames his attitude
on Graffyn as he says he always tries to take advantage of him. To
imagine Carin Tor you have to close your eyes. Are they closed? Now
put your arms in the air and twirl in a circle thirty times. Now
open your eyes, I assume you are a little dizzy. Welcome to Carin
It is a very busy place. Notice I did not say productive. I said
busy. The average age is only eighty four but there are some who
live there that are closer to four hundred. Those of youthful years
dominate when you are there. It is a whirlwind of excitement. In
one clearing you might see the ever bossy Shadra organizing a tree
house building party. Down from her Jumbly will be juggling away
and Owhey is trying to fly. There is so much to tell about Carin
Tor but let me just say that as confusing as it may sound nowhere
will you meet a happier, better meaning bunch.
Krystonia is not just inhabited by dragons and wizards. Let me
touch on just a very few things you will see in Krystonia. The snow
sprites are full of mischief. Making matters worse they have just
used their power to disappear and are swiping crystal from the greedy
Myzer's barrels. It drives him nuts.
The trolls are building a bridge but their love of eating has caused
them to take another two hour break. It is their fourth of the day.
Moplos of the Om-Ba-Don clan along with pack animal Mos are lumbering
through the snow from Tarnhold having just completed their Olympic
celebrations. Shigger and the Maj-Dron travel the searing dessert
in search of crystal. They are on the lookout for the winged Hagga-Beast
for he would love to snatch them in his claws.
You probably noticed that crystal is mentioned often. That is because
it is of the up most importance. Whoever has the most magical crystals
has the upper hand in ruling all of Krystonia. By whispering charm
words through them the wizards have been able to keep N'Borg in check.
N'Borg's hoards also gather crystal to be used when casting his evil
Yes I said that there is bad in Krystonia. Its name is N'Borg.
Dwelling in Krak N'Borg he rules with an iron fist. He is joined
there by N'Chakk, master of the dark arts, and the henchdragon N'Grall.
There allegiance is one of need not desire. No one is trusted here.
Nowhere is there more stress, as being a friend or foe gives you
no protection. N'Borg believes in the survival of the fittest. His
Honji soldiers have been known to be ordered to battle each other
to the death. All this is done to weed out the weak. He spends many
hours plotting for the wizard's demise. Once he destroys them he
will rule all of Krystonia and cast the spell that will cause the
winter with no end.
This is not the way I would prefer to end your introduction to
Krystonia. Be assured the good outweighs the bad by a thousand times
to one. In the coming time you will learn so much more about Krystonia
and its inhabitants. There is a tremendous amount to tell you. Please
feel free to visit again and again. I must go now as it is time for
lunch and Wodema is bringing over some herbal delights.
I remain yours,
