[font=sans-serif]Following this act of creation, while drakkhens gave thanks to the primordial father, the great dragons were bored, jealous and the powers of the latter. Thus, they created too, and gave birth to humans. Then they bored again, and chose this time to dream. When they awoke, they were punished by the primordial father for daring to imitate him, which resulted in the almost complete destruction of humanity. Then they returned to their former grandeur dream. Waking up for the second time, they saw that humans proliferated and spread across the world, while drakkhens had disappeared. Dragons, stunned the exploits of their creations out of their inactivity to be loved humans. But in the eyes of their children, dragons had become images of terror and hate, and both sides, the losses were heavy. However, there were some who remembered, and those, dragons learned magic. But when the new Magi asked for help deal with constant attacks ungrateful son, dragons did not move: they slept. So they no longer had any allies among humans, and were soon the target of massacres, the son has exceeded fathers in magic and technology, knowing dominate the elements, creating appalling and destructive weapons. The primordial Father contemplated the consequences of its own punishment and weeping for her lost children. Soon, there was only one dragon, which, hidden in the depths of the world, seemed unattainable. But the agony of his last son, the primordial father decided to seal the fate of the world and bring about a new age: " The great dragons The new aeon genesis The anhak Drakkhen!!! "[/font]

I hope you understand what I mean ... "[/font]

[font=sans-serif]With these few words, the priest and means that humans have a chance to see their species and their world continue, if they discover the nature of these tears.About those relating to the human world, the survivors of the terror threw Shadrach within hearts. An expedition was mounted therefore, choosing 4 people, sent to the island to understand, but mostly to save. It is upon arrival that the game begins.[/font]
