- Endless Snowflake –
For the first moment everyone was still. Suddenly with a speed the Prince had never seen before, The King was in front of him pointing his sword at the intruder. The Rider leapt from his mount and his sword clashed with the Kings. The Prince had seen his father duel many times, but for some reason this time felt different. His father moved faster than he’d ever seen him move before, almost as if the King had been holding back all his skills his entire life for just this one moment. And for that moment the King seemed to have the upper hand, but as soon as the thought left the Prince’s mind he saw the black lance shoot through his fathers back in a spray of white light and blood.
The room became deathly silent. The king held his chest with a look of utter astonishment upon his face. Where his hand covered his wound small shards of white light jutted out. The Dark Rider turned on his heels and jumped on his steed and was gone as quickly as he came.
Everyone turned to the King, and once all eyes were upon him he exploded in a burst of white hot light. Where he once stood now a gigantic snowflake shaped crystal remained. The crystal was covered in strange reflections. The Prince edged closer in disbelief, and gazed into the crystal snowflake. In it he could see images of his father, adventures he had undertaken, he saw himself as a baby, and then there were other men in the crystal as well, men who looked similar to his father, but not quite the same, doing things he was sure his father never did.
The Prince reached out and touched the crystal. The moment his finger connected with the snowflake it began to shrink until it could fit in the palm of his hand. He turned to his mother with tears in his eyes. And with tears in her eyes the Queen uttered these words “Your father’s gone. Now his spirit will adventure forever in the Continuum of the Sky” And all the knights in chorus repeated the words ADVENTURE FOREVER.
- Skull Prince –
The Cloaked Man continued on, informing the King that when he returned to his castle that he would find it filled with subjects. The figure revealed that he also had one more surprise in store for the King, and another figure emerged from the Cave. This time it was a woman. The Cloaked Man explained that she was to be his Queen, and that she would rule forever by his side so long as he lived. The Cloaked man started to become visibly unsettled, and explained that the King’s ascent had angered the Dragon, and that the King must return to his castle now, because he could no longer guarantee their safety. He explained that if they followed the cave it would lead them to a secret passage back into the castle. And so they descended into the cave. Much like his first trip through the mountain, it seemed to take no time at all to return to the castle.
Once they returned the King and Queen instantly fell in love and shortly after they conceived their first son. He was a precocious young lad. Always sneaking along on adventures with his father, and getting into trouble around the Castle. All of the Kings subjects loved the Prince, but few of them believed that he would have what it took to one day rule in place of the King. In his teenage years he developed a temper and could be set off by a single word. He constantly quarreled with his mother and father, and walked around with a sour look on his face.
Though despite all of his recklessness the King found it in his heart to bestow upon the Prince the only thing he ever truly wanted. On his 18th birthday the King knighted him as a sworn sword of his Immortal Army, but there was no time for revelry. For as soon as the Prince had finished reciting the oath of the Immortal, the doors to the throne room exploded open. In the doorway stood a knight clad head to toe in the blackest armor any of them had ever seen. Even more frightening was his horse, because he was mounted atop the Black Unicorn, the most powerful creature in the known lands. The Dark Rider raised his arm and entered the throne room pointing his pure black lance directly at the Prince.

- Fractal Dragon –
The Cloaked Man began to speak again, that noise you hear, that is the second being created from the Forever Mountain, and the opposite of the Black Unicorn that you know. While the Unicorn has consciousness, the Dragon does not. It cares for the Mountain and the mountain alone. If anything gets in the way of it and the Mountain, that thing will cease to be.
It emerges from the flowers that grow on the western face of the Mountain whenever it senses the Mountain may be in danger. The Dragon is the protector of the mountain, and will forever be chained to it. It protects the Mountain from those that wish to take from the Mountain, but are not worthy. You would do well to warn your people to appreciate the Mountain only from afar, its powers are far too vast for any of them to understand. The King was confused, he had no people, this cloaked figure was the only other man he’d seen in this world, but the figure was quick to point out that he was not the same as the King, he was something else entirely.

- Wave Core –
The figure spoke immediately, and when he spoke, he spoke of the time before the King.
He explained how the Gods created the Wave, and that the Wave is the base element for everything in this world. The Wave has a mind of its own and it soon began forming into solid objects. First the Wave created all of the land, but the Wave would not be content to stay still. Parts of the land bubbled up all over the world. Slowly the Wave concentrated their energy, and moved upward until they formed the Mountain.
As soon as he spoke those last words a sonic cacophony came from the other side of the mountain. It was a sound unlike any the King had ever heard before, and it frightened him to his core.
