Kingdom of Crestoria! 12
The map was about 3 foot long, discoloured yellows and browns stained the detailed drawn map. You could see exactly where the mountain ridges start and faded in to the oceans. But the most noticeable were the shards the land was made off. Puzzled together as if being a stainless glass window.
The connecting bridges were put down in precision and never seemed o touch completely as there was a tiny little gap left in the middle. On multiple corners of the map were extended arms drawn. Names and places were scribbled down in every shard, one of the biggest parts was covered in mountain and was called Munglest. As I was mesmerized by the map figuring out where the hell I was and if this was all there was to it to what they call Kingdom of Crestoria, Scowler had picked up what looked like a silver dish. And planted it dead centre in front of us.
“I tell you more, yes, yes!” His toad finger tapped a few times against the dish and a light started circling around in an edged circle. With each passing multiple stones placed around the edge lit up till a three dimensional plateau of light showed the exact map of Crestroria. Except this time a larger towered island swirl along side it.
“This is where you are, capital of kingdom, Crestoria. Islands drifting high up on the waters around us. Crestoria floats even higher and circles around, round yes. It takes 13 blue moons to go fully around all these islands and come back. Bridges of light we created to go from one to another. As distance never the same between, okay. We are now on our way here, right on time, yes. Yes according to foretold prophecy, Hero starts here. Bruxilles, town of many good fighters to accompanying you. Later. Need know that evil comes here.”
There his toad finger points is nothing to see, even the drawn map is just a hole with burned edges. As the scale of the lit map is the same all seen were edges where light just stopped existing. The jagged edges suggested an island none the less. Around it though were 3 Islands all with drawn ridges. The three dimensional lit map showed high walls almost forming a single mountain or deep crater.
“Nobody knows not even Scowler and books know what is there. But you be ready one more moon from now”
“Scowler I heard all you said, I get that I am on Crestoria, what does that have to do with me, Why me. I am no fighter. Once every turn of moons and 13 blue moons. It is all a bit confusing.” An eyes is burning and a sting shoots through my head. I could not hold in the pain and I am sure I screamed a little as flashes passed through me again.
I did not know how long it lasted or what happened as I was taken to a silent but violent image. I woke up half hung in the arms of Scowler who looked down on me with eager and questioning eyes.
“Scowler know what you seen, yes. You tell Scowler right?”
