So, until we figure out what's going to happen to the forum, I'm going to re-post my fic again here. Prologue Not everyone knows how it all got to this point. Creatures mythical and normal alike buzzing about on a planet three times the size of Earth but still with the same sort of features. Rivers, mountains, forests, deserts, the whole works, just with four suns and four moons instead of only one of each, and only one landmass in the center of a vast ocean. Terrater, the planet in question, had been that way since the beginning of time, except then it was much quieter, no life to really speak of except the plants. No one really knows where they came from, but one day from the depths of the ocean, complex, intricate beings of metal started to arise. They were built much like humans would be, except everything about them was made of technology beyond anyone's wildest dreams. From the water they traversed the deserts, made their way through the forests, and found themselves on empty land on which to build. But what was there anything to build for, if there was no other life? The beings of metal, whom the people of the planet now call the Androids, started building intricate devices called portals. They would be able to have the function to transport one being to another place, time, universe, dimension... anywhere they pleased, really. Being as intelligent as they were they always got the coordinates exactly precise of each portal they built to who-knows-where. But each portal had something in common other than their similar designs. Every single one of them contained in the largest skyscraper in the entirety of existence - thanks to technology that allowed for more space than there actually was - lead to an individual world with sentient lifeforms. It was like it was encoded into the Androids to seek out life signatures throughout the multiverse and have as many of them as possible brought to Terrater. The first portal the Androids ever opened was one to a nearby planet called Draconia, as they soon found out was an apt name indeed. The span of Draconia - which was actually much larger than Terrater - was covered mostly in mountains and volcanoes with large pools of water scattered about, and was absolutely covered in dragons. Different colors and types of dragons, all of them majestic and beautiful in their own right, some fearful warriors and others friendly diplomats. The Androids spoke with some of the more diplomatic dragons, and convinced a lot of them to come to Terrater, to keep the Androids company. In return, the Androids offered them technology that would help the dragons who could change their form into other beings to better control the change as it happened, knowing that some of them had great difficulty pulling it off. They agreed to the deal, even convincing the king of dragons to make his mark on their planet. The telling of the story of Orn Vur Achuisk and his human queen is one that many on the planet know very well, but would best be told another day. This story is about how the other races came to be on this planet, and some of the main people who have changed significant events within the span of Terrater's history and the life of My Lady Dwayna, daughter of Orn and Nerezza. This is how it all began.
