The land of Tuwa knew centuries of peace and prosperity under the influence of the immortal race of the Elves from the Black Forest. King Ciel, the Elven King, was the primary reason for the collaborative atmosphere amongst the free people of the middle part of Tuwa. The years of tranquility is brought to an end when politics plague the enlightened Elves while other sinister forces plot their rise to power. Freedom is no longer possible while evil spreads throughout the land. The goblins, orcs, rock trolls, and other vicious creatures of Tuwa combine their considerable forces to redress the wrongs against their races from centuries past. They are led by a powerful Guardian who will use all of her powers to further her designs with the assistance of these amply motivated races. The ancient council of Guardians moves quickly to combat the evil as it spreads. Their efforts alone will not forestall the death and carnage about to be unleashed on the unsuspecting people of middle Tuwa. Battle lines are drawn and lives are lost in bloody conflicts. Riffs will be overcome in order to combat an evil that threatens all who live within middle Tuwa. Councils will break and the resulting fall out will leave no one a safe quarter to resort to. Conflict will find you no matter where hide. Deceit and betrayal leads to unforgivable acts the likes of which have not been seen in millennia. Prepare to choose your side in the conflict that will determine the fate for not only the peoples of Tuwa but the very elements themselves will be forever and irrevocably altered.

As Yukio looked at the place where he had seen the misty form of Kana, they both started at the appearance of a beautiful creature. She had long, fiery-red hair with eyes that pierced the soul. Being in her presence was both terrible and awe inspiring. The powerful Elemental before them gestured to them to come out from under the cover of the trees. Yukio did not

language not familiar to them. They reached a point where they were aware again after what seemed to be hours of listening to the guardian. The Elemental had released her control over their minds so that they would remember this part of their meeting on a conscience level. "It is clear that you two are to be united as elf and man. Your union will be the catalyst for saving the elves from annihilation. Also, new friendships will be formed between races that were once enemies," the mistress stated
