In the beginning, there was the Ring of Creation. And through the use of its power came forth our world, Exodus. But, in order to perfect the world in which we live, the other rings were created:
The Ring of Winds, so that winged creatures can fly and all animals can breathe.
The Ring of Flames, so heat and fire could repel the chill that winds can bring.
The Ring of Water, so fires won’t engulf the world in endless drought.
The Ring of Earth, so oceans don’t flood the entire planet.
The Ring of Shadows, so the weak and weary can rest in the shade and nights.
The Ring of Light, so we may all see under the gaze of the stars, moon and sun.
And, The Ring of Essences, so that all the others may flow in balance.
All seemed as it should be. However, it is well known that Destruction is the brother of Creation, and always follows close behind. As a result of this, the being known as Confusio, wielder of the Ring of Creation, was slowly forced into a state of chaos, for both creation and destruction cannot exist together in one state. Fearing what would happen if he used all the other rings; he gave them to the great monks that lived high in the mountains. After this final task was done, chaos finally took hold. The monks managed to combine the powers of the rings of Shadows and Light to remove the Ring of Creation, and used the remaining four to seal this chaotic force away into the planets core. The eight rings were locked away, and the Ring of creation was forbidden from being used ever again.
Yet, it was foretold that a Master of Essences, who could master the Ring of Essences’ power, would be discovered and identify a Master for the other six Rings. The role of these seven warriors is to safeguard the Ring of Creation. Such events came to pass and six Masters have been found:
Platinum, the Master of Essences.
Claire, the Master of Winds.
Flint, the Master of Flames.
Crystal, the Master of Water.
Noah, the Master of Earth.
And, Derak, the Master of Shadows.
As of now, the Master of Light has not been found.
Lately however, he must be found soon.
For somehow, the Ring of Creation was stolen, and used by one called the Shadow Emperor.
He created a vast army of skeletal beings, and began to conquer Exodus, leaving the Masters to protect the rest of the world.
This tale is their story…
This is a series that I came up with a few years ago. Sadly, I never finished it. But, I will Post what I did finish in this topic. BTW, there will be story spoilers in this topic, as I don’t plan on adding anything new to Exodus.
