Chapter One: The Portal
Light could not exist without darkness. Darkness could not exist without light.
The Kingdom of Cevire took these words to heart. A once prosperous land would be in peace for at least one year, and then, a portal would appear come night fall. Monsters of all kinds would emerge from the dark abyss, either good or evil.
They were once human, too.
They only wanted a second chance at life. The portal gave them that. The portal was Heaven and Hell combined. Before it's existence, strife roamed the lands and there was nothing but pain. While there was some happiness, it wasn't enough to summon the portal away. It wasn't that easy.
For the portal to disappear for another year, there needed to be a sacrifice.
One human, pure of heart.
If the chosen human decided they wanted a second chance at life, they could be brought back to "life", but they would no longer be human. They would turn into a randomized creature the portal chooses. Some that are turned become evil and henceforth decide to wreck havoc on the land. Then, there are those who come out with good intentions, usually these select few wish to fight against the creatures of the land and bring prosperity back to the land.
The creatures who come out cannot age. They will remain the same age at the time they were sacrificed. They can, however, feel pain and become injured like any other being. When they die as a creature, they cannot be brought back to life.
Humans are becoming more extinct over the years- and the portal is to blame. How many more sacrifices must we make to bring peace to this doomed land? I am terrified for our people and the future it holds for them.
I ask that any brave man or woman, please come fourth and be the change we need. Appease these creatures, befriend them, build an alliance. A Special Task Force, so to speak.
No more sacrifices.
