Ziri lay on her bed, and  drifted deeper and deeper into sleep as darkness surrounded her. She looked around, but couldn’t see anything but an inky blackness. “Where am I?” Her voice echoed in her mind. She still wore the dress she had on that night, but she remembered taking it off to go to bed. “Oh, I must be dreaming.” She concluded. “But that doesn’t answer my question. Where is this place?” Then the feeling of falling overtook her, and she tried to scream but her voice dried up in her throat.

Light began to bleed into her vision, as she landed on her side, in the middle of a green field, overgrown with thick, colorful plantlife, and running rampant with many different kinds of animals. She watched, a small smile growing across her face as she watched them, sitting in the middle of the field with her legs pulled up to her chin. Her silver hair blew in a light breeze, but something was terribly wrong. Ziri could sense it, and her expression fell, as she realized the plants were drying up, and becoming brown husks of themselves. Then she saw the animals, one by one, dying where they stood. She stood up, as tears ran down her face in the presence of so much death. Then she reminded herself; it’s only a dream, calm down Zirconia. But her own voice was drowned out by a noise so unholy, so soul damning, that she could not help but to turn to see what creature had made that awful noise.

But what she saw before her was beyond words. It was a Colossus a twenty foot tall mass of flesh and teeth with four long arms and clawed hands. But it was not comprised of any worldly element. This creature was made of the flesh of the dead. The rotting flesh mass was held together by Necrotic and Dark Magiks. Worse still, the thing was feeding off the dying animals, absorbing their souls. Then the thing noticed Ziri, and smiled, if it were able to do so, it’s gaping maw opening to reveal row after row of razor sharp teeth. It stomped its way toward her, as she tried to outrun it, but it quickly caught her in one of its hands, and shoved her into its mouth.


Ziri woke up, screaming bloody murder, and her chest heaved as she took in several ragged breaths. Her skin was covered in a cold sweat, her eyes wide as saucers. What in the nine Hells was that thing?! She looked around, still frantic, to find herself in her own room, in her own bed.

As I traveled through the mystical forest, through the hollows, the nature elementals watched on as a Werecat Princess appeared before me. She invited me to the Golden Hall, to feast with the Dwarves. After a night of feasting and celebration, of our newfound friendship, I said my farewells, and found my way out of her forest home.


Then I came to the mines of the Gnomes as a storm was coming, and went inside. There I saw the Gnomes, who were not as friendly as the curious Werecat Princess, but allowed me to pass anyway, wanting the human out of their mines. At the end of their mine, I saw a light and followed it, into a place the Gnomes called Jagged Rock. When I stepped into the sunlight, I saw why the region had earned this name.


The place was a valley, laden with sharp rocks, and stalactites. It seemed to be void of life, but out of the corner of my eye, I saw a shadow. I turned to see what had cast it, and was met with a Centaur. He was dressed in leather armour, and bore a spear, which he had at my throat in a matter of seconds.


He demanded my name, and why I was here. I told him my name, and that I travel because I have no real home. His dark eyes glared at me, but he soon made a motion with his hand, and I wasn’t quite sure what he was doing. That is until the rest of his herd came toward us, surrounding me. I thought I was going to die, as they all looked at me, some curious, some stone faced. The first to find me, their leader I suppose announced that I was a human, and I was not to be feared. The others looked on, still staring at me. I told them that I really must go, that I was only passing through. At this the crowd broke apart, allowing me to pass. I gratefully did so.


The leader offered me an escort, at least to the place they called ‘The Caves’. I agreed, if only to be on my way, as it seemed to me some of the herd still didn’t trust me. And so he and I, along with a few other Centaurs traveled to the caves, just south of Jagged Rock. As we made it to the entrance, he stopped and so did the others. He told me this was as far as he or his herd would go, as they never entered caves, unless the weather was very bad. I said I understood, and bid them farewell, thanking them for leading me there, before I entered into the darkness, flicking on my lighter.


The cave was deep and dark, and I could swear I was being watched every step of the way. I was proven right, as I was greeted by the sight of three creatures, who stood about five feet high. Ugly things, Goblins are, as their skin is pale from a lack of sun exposure, and they smell like what they eat, rotted meat. One asked me what I was doing here, and becoming tired of the same explanation, I said I was merely passing through. They looked to each other, and glared back to me. The middle Goblin, who seemed younger said to me humans don’t come around very often. I told them, once more that I was just passing through, and wouldn’t be there long. They stood in front of me, blocking my path. The Goblin that seemed to be the youngest sneered and said I wasn’t going anywhere. But the eldest bashed him on the back of the head, telling him they kept no prisoners, and if I wanted to pass, they should let me. After this, the three argued among themselves, and I quietly made my way out of that chamber, and into another. How anti-climactic. But I was almost there, I reminded myself, as I made my way through the twists and turns of this cave. Only three Goblins? That was odd. But lucky, I guessed as I saw the light at the end of the final tunnel.


But why was it getting so hot, all of a sudden? I found out why, when I was met with the sight of lava flowing from the volcano just ahead. But it wasn’t flowing toward me, so I was safe, for now. Then the ground started to shake, but as I clung to the rock wall next to me, I realized this was no earthquake, as a shadow blocked out the already fading sunlight. I looked up to see what behemoth could do this, and was met with an Earth Golem, who didn’t seem to notice me. I called out to it, and it looked down, and seemed confused. It spoke to me, asking how I got here. I told him I walked, and he grinned, at least I think it was a grin, and moved to pick me up. I didn’t fight it, thinking he’d crush me if I did. He lifted me up so high, I could see the top of the still spewing volcano. He told me to look closer to the lava rivers, pointing with his free hand.


As I did so, I could see lith little forms coming out of the molten rock, and it seemed like they were dancing around the lava, and down the hillside. “Nymphs”, he said. Lovely, but also deadly, little fire nymphs. After a while of watching these creatures, the golem took me away, telling me it wasn’t safe for me there. Well, obviously. He took me to the end of the jagged rocks, and cracked, dry dirt and told me good bye as he returned to his mountainous home.


I sighed, as I came to my destination. A cliff, overlooking all the places I had been that day. The forest, where I had met the Werecat Princess. The Golden Hall, where I had feasted with her highness, and the Dwarves. The entrance to the mines, where I had found the reluctant Gnomes. Jagged Rock, where I could still see specks moving around, that I presumed were the Centaurs keeping guard over their territory. Then the cave of Goblins, which had lead me to the volcano, then here. I looked to the clouds, as I sat down, dangling my feet off the edge. I closed my eyes, and allowed them to appear. My wings, black and feathery, sprung from my back as I watched the gathering clouds in the otherwise clear sky. I am no human, like those creatures had assumed. The sky is my true home, as a Wind Elemental am I.
