Once Upon a Time…
Once upon a time, in a faraway land, there was a beautiful hidden island with captivating white sandy beaches, lush green hills and mighty white peaked mountains. The natives called it Asturi and, if not for an incredible and unexpected event, it would have remained hidden and forgotten for centuries.
Some say it was during his early morning walk, some say that it happened in the shower. Be that as it may, Branden Iech, at the time the local eccentric and today considered the greatest Philosopher of antiquity, stumbled upon something that would change the world forever.
It is said that, in the 12th day of the 12th month of the 12th age a hero will rise and bring balance to the world. That happens to be today.
