Xorvintaal - The Jaxtasha Years

Xorvintaal - The Jaxtasha Years

ImageIn the beginning there was only one dragon. He was the first and all who came after, came from him. This dragon’s name was Io and he was created by the Gods as they created the world. Io was unfathomably large; it is said the largest dragon who ever lived since is smaller than a single one of his scales, which were blue, gold, brass, and red, edged with silver and dark purple. He spent his time travelling the newly formed world observing the creations of the Gods. Always being alone and never a feeling true part of the world as it developed. As the years went by he grew bored with the world and the creatures that inhabited it. And so Io created the dragons in his image and gave each type a piece of his body and soul, ensuring that each type of dragon was just a smaller aspect of his nature. Only together as a race would they be as powerful as Io himself. His children were to be his legacy creating all future dragons from them. According to myth, Io's first child was a small, simple-minded dragon called Vorel. Vorel's name means "beautiful" in Draconic, for beautiful she was, perfect of scale and form. She was a perfect image of Io but without his power. Next he created Xorvintaal without the physical majesty and beauty of Vorel but with all the power and intellect of his father. Lastly Io created a pair of children; he created them male and female: Bahamut and Tiamat were their names. Io intended them to grow up and mate, producing children that combined the best traits of each.Read More

Gather round dear friends and hear my tale, for I have travelled far to tell it. I have seen the mighty dragons play games with mere mortals' lives, and I have seen them win and lose. This day I do not speak to you of the largest dragon, or the fiercest I have seen. The tale I tell is of a tiny dragon, the smallest gem, in the eye of a ferocious but youthful mother, burned by a young rogue, and blinded by vengeance. This tiny dragon is Jaxtasha, the first and only daughter of Arynquitubahr, the sole egg to successfully hatch from her first clutch. However, as these tales so often go, the events of this story are not so simple. Listen further, and gather round. For as the sun is setting across these mountain peaks there is a purple glimmer high in the rocks. That light if ever you see it, is the keen eye of Arynquitubahr, watching as her daughter makes her way in this world. What I tell you here is folklore and faerie tale for no Elf, Dwarf or Human has ever been close enough to the mighty dragons and lived long enough to tell their story. Those caught in their perverse games do not even realise they are playing, but I have spoken to some adventurers with loose lips and looser purses, and this is the tale they told. Read More Image

ImageFriends, friends please come closer, take a load of your weary feet, please grab yourselves a pint of the fine ale and join me at the fire, the story is about to start. Some of you may have heard tell of the great game the dragons are said to play but if you have not listen hard. Our lands are not run by kings or queens! Knights, shamans, paladins and barbarians of this world hold little power for the world spins only when the great dragons tell it to. They are playing a game more complex than chess and have been playing since the start of time. One of these dragons is the contradiction in purple the mysterious and majestic Jaxtasha, first and only born of the late great dragon Arynquitubahr once ruler of Skyborne on the Mord Plateau. It is her tale I am here to tell you. Read More
