The old wizard could scarcely believe his ears; the ravens had urgent news – something unusual was stirring at Mountaintop. Knowing history as he did, this could certainly only mean one thing! There was no time to waste.
Isolated and virtually inaccessible, the temple at Mountaintop, a relic of days long passed has stood in ruin for millennia and he could not recall the last time anyone had reason to journey there. A hearty three suns journey from the nearest outpost to reach the summit and there it was before his eyes as plain as day amidst the rubble…
A dragon’s egg!
Cermryael at one time was well known for its sacred Dragon Altars. Seven in all scattered throughout the kingdom. And any newly summoned dragons would appear at one of these Divine Altars, as eggs. Which were then carefully guarded and tended until they were ready to hatch.
But the last was ages ago. So long ago in fact that today dragons are only found in myth and legend. Until now. Now for the first time in eons it would appear that Dragons were returning to Cermryael!
