Forgotten Gears: Prologue"Some years back, in 3047, we humans ruled the world. We had no threats. We were dominating the species, no worries, progressively increasing in our technology and didn`t give a damn about anything else. Well, that was until the Foarlust, 3051, after the polar shift, Destroyer. The scientists continued to say the chances were nearly impossible, and now they`re dead because of it. It destroyed everything. Absolutely everything. Out of nowhere, the new intelligent races emerged because of it. Arachs, Saouls, Morques and the Ondoor. They came from the ground, from the water, from the uncharted lands and from the sky. They were living on our planet undetected. To them, we lived on theirs. That`s how it started. The war. Most call it World War V, but I call it the extinction of the human race. We were outnumbered, all of our studies were destroyed and three quarters of our race died. Today, in 3058, we live on what we have, salvaging and attempting to forget the current threat, even though
The Oath (Chapter VI The Pathway) The sun was on the verge of coming into the sky. The deep red light took over the cabin, along with the warm damp air. Svenial opened his eyes and to his comfort, everyone was still in bed. He got out of the comfortable bed and looked out the window, into the sunrise. He looked at his arm for no reason. He wondered why. Why him? Why was he born when he was? Why was he a sylvari of all races? Not that he didn`t want to be, but he probably wouldn't of put all those other peoples, his friends, lives in danger. He didn`t feel like a hero, he felt like a follower. Someone who brought people to their death. He almost killed Lyeila the day before, he felt guilty, guiltier than ever. Maybe he shouldn`t of listened to anyone, and stayed at the grove. He thought that maybe it would be better that way.. But his thinking was interrupted by Lyeilas voice.
"Good morning." She said grim. "What`s wrong? You
The Oath (Chapter V Gone) Svenial opened up his eyes. The sun was just rising, red as it was the day before while setting. The air was not humid, nor damp, just right. He was the first one awake, surprisingly. Normally it was Lyeila jumping for joy around all of them. Svenial walked to the cliffs edge, sat down and dangled his feet over to enjoy the morning breeze. A few minutes later, Cheonsa woke up, and joined Svenial. "Good morning." She said. "Hey." Svenial greeted. He let out a random subject. "Have you ever wondered what it`s like to die..?" Asked Svenial. "Well.. Every race has their beliefs." Said Cheonsa puzzled why he asked such a question. "But we asura, believe in the eternal alchemy. We think we are all a part of a bigger picture. Or that we are all gears in a huge machine, some how." She added. "How about sylvari?" "We don`t exactly have any beliefs.. The pale tree is who we look up to, and no one else. We do not fear death, nor should we feel we sh
The Oath (Chapter IV Little Bodies and Big Brains) The three ran towards the opening to aid whoever let out the distress call. They got out their weapons again. As they neared the source of the shout, they could hear shuffling and a little voice screaming. "Back off!" The voice yelped, in a weakened voice. "Over there!" Said Lyeila. The three saw a couple of panthers gaining up on the small, helpless asura. One of the panthers spotted Mjorn, and charged at him. The other panther stalked closer, with every step, gaining a hungrier look on its face. Svenial was sure the asura didn`t notice them. Instead, she was in shock of what this panther might do to her, or will. Mjorn put his left leg forward and braced himself for the panthers impact. It jumped and latched on to his arm piece. Mjorn swung his arm against towards the tree, and smacked it so hard, the tree shook. The panther got up and let out a yelp. Lyeila took out her bow and shot it in the leg, letting Mjorn swing his bloody axe at
The Oath (Chapter III Long Road) The three stopped a step away from crossing the root covered, purple glowing, asuran portal. "This is to Lions Arch. When we get there, we can go through to Rata Sum." Said Lyeila still a bit frustrated about Zrains unexpected visit. "This will be my first time.." Svenial let out. Mjorn chuckled. "Let`s go." Lyeila said confidently. Lyeila stepped through. They could see her stepping through on their side, but she became invisible on the other side. Mjorn went in next, seeming like an expert. Then Svenial took a step through. He was amazed. Behind his was the grove, a totally green, luscious grass filled land. But with one step, the air grew damp, the ground felt like hard wood and he could feel the oceans breeze. The change in time was minor, but the change in the terrain was drastic. He could see the sand all around him, and the cities homes and buildings, made of what seemed like the same dark wood the platform he was on was made of. "
The Oath (Chapter II A Legend Begins)"What do you mean?" Asked Svenial, trying to act puzzled, knowing that his adventures might take him to dangerous places, places that could mean death for either one of them or both. "Don`t be silly!" Lyeila laughed. "I knew from the beginning that you were looking up to the bigger picture. I knew from what your dream was that you don`t want to stay here, you want to go adventure, to make a difference in the world. I want to do that with you!" She said excitedly. She took a seat beside Svenial and put her hands in front of her. "Please take me with you.. I don`t want to stay here any longer.." She added. Svenial looked at his soup, flushing it around with his spoon. Looking at every texture it contained. Somehow he was able to read 'Let her' in his soup from the bubbles, but he probably imagined it. "Fine.." He said unsure of what he just got her or even himself into. "But please, listen to me.." He looked up at her with a very serious stare. "Don`t worry." She sai
