Words of Wisdom for Newcomen to Wizardry J40
Chapter One


Magicl:e Mirroreth the Soule,

'Tis Heart's Desire's Proofc,
So the Wiseard, ever, as his Goale,
Keeyeth Wisedom, Grace and Truth.

What is a Wizard?

By opening this book and signing the pledge, you h~ indicated that you aspire to become: a
wizard. Before such a process can begin, however, you must fim learn more about what becoming
a wizard entails.

Magic can only be performed by those who possess the necessary magical ability. Observe your
reflection in the stone that's embedded in the cover of this book. If it appears vertically inverted,
or "upside down," then you possess the inherent ability required to perform magic. Needless to
say, it is the least that is expeeted of wizards who have chosen to sign the pledge.

Wizards perform two main forms of magic: "Spells," which involve the drawing of runes with
one's wand, and "Alchemy," which involves the combining of two or more materials to create
something quite different. Spells shall be introdueed in this chapter, while alchemy shall be
diseussed in more detail in the next.

A tertiary school of magic, concerning the use of familiars, will also be touched upon in due
course. Bear in mind, however, that the handling of familiars calls for talenu quite dilferent from
those required for other types of magic. There are some: who are capable of forming familiars
despite not being able to cast a single spell.

Wizards who master spellcrafl:, alchemy, and the use of familiars are called sages. Becoming a
sage is the highest honor that can be bestowed upon a wizard. It is a lofty goal indeed, but one
to which you may aspire if you remain pure of heart, and untiring in your studies and t~ining.
Though the path ahead will not be easy, it is one that all who would achieve greatness must tread.

The Great Sages

The four Great Sages who inhabit our world are wdl·known for their mastery of
the three pillars of wizardry. Tiley are unpa~lleled in their ability to cast spells,

Joy and gri~f, pain and pleasure••. One's heart comprises all these things and more.
A heart may e~n contain too much of one and not enough of another. Such a heart
becomes unbalanced, with grave consequences for its owner. The Locket is a s~cial
vessel in which virtues-the elements which make up a heart--can be stored. It
is also capable of sensing the presence of people who possess an abundance of a
particular virtue, glowing whenever such a person is nearby.

With the proper training, wizards can learn to take some of a virtue &om a person
who has it in abundance and share it with othen who are in need of it. Naturally,
a person's heart is not something to be toyed with, and great
care must be taken.

Lest there be any doubt, using a person's

heart for one's own ~nds is d~spicabl~
~havior, unbecoming of a wizard.

~ Virtues ~

~re are eight virtues that can be stored in the Locket: courage, kindness, ambition,
belief, rest raint, enthusiasm, love, and confidence. \Vhilst all of these appear to be
wonderful qualities in themsdves, an excess of any of them can cause great distress.
Too much "confidence," for example, leads directly to arrogance.

Of course, the lack of a particular virtue is also a problem. Indeed, a serious

deficiency of a virt~ leads to a person becoming unable to function--a state
known as "brokenheartedness ." It is a wizard's duty to extract virtue from those
who have it in abundance and share it with those who need it most, so as to reuore
balance to their hearts.

Be aware that no one has an inexhaustible supply of virtue on which you can dnw.
Furthermore, only a single morsel of each of the eight virtues can be carried in
the Locket at any one rime. Once a virtue in the Locket has been shared with a
brokenhearted person, you must find another person with an abundance of that virtue
liom whom to draw some more.

A person with an The virtue is then given The heart' s balance

The Casting of Spells

yourself. It is therdorc time for you to draw your fint runes. This is not something to be taken
lighfly, howt\'tt. 'Ibere is a strict sequence that must be foil~, and t~ consequences of breaking
said sequence do not bear thinking about. Great care must be taken when learning to draw runes.

Be at peace with yourself prior to casting this
spdl as the result is invariably self-re\'elatory. A
familiar thus formed is a manifestation of your
heart and soul.
Step out of one world and into another.

The gateways formed by

this spell are the only way
to tnvd ~~n this world
and one of the many other worlds in
existence. Casting Gateway requires
you to focus your thoughts upon the
world to which you wish to tta\'d. It
is also imperath·e to imagine that you

you cast the spell.

Ease the pain of bumps, cuts, and grazes.

The wizard's path is seldom easy, and you

are sure to suffer injuries on your travels
or during battle. Should such misfortune
befall you, be sure to cast this spell. The key to casting
Healing Touch is kindness-its effects are diminished
when performed by cold-hearted wizards.

•Ill'" \\ '"$:
Cure the effects of venoms and toxins.

Nothing perturbs a wizard more than poison,

and with good reason: el'tn small amounts
have b«n known to cause untold distress.
Should you or your companions be affected in such
a manner, be sure to use this magical cure. No
mauer how detply the poison has taken hold, there
is always hope if you are able to draw this rune.
Restore someone who teeters upon the brink of death to health.

'When you or your companions have been grievously

injured and Healing Touch is not enough, be
sure to draw this rune. Healing Hand will
grant a clean bill of health to those who would otherwise
be beyond hope. Its power means that it is not easily
mastered, howt,·er, and it makes great demands on the
caster. Nevertheless, this is a spell that no aspiring
wizard should be without.
Use magic to help share a person's virtues.

As previously explained, the heart is made

up of virtues, emotions, and various other
elements. This spell allows you to take some
virtue from a person who has it an abundance, and store
it in the Locket. Just be sure to ask for permission before
you proceed. Remember: a heart belongs to one person,
and one person alone.
Bring balance to someone's heart by restoring a lost virtue.

This spell allows you to give the virtues

shared using Take Heart to people who
are in need of them. In that it offers
a means to save the brokenhearted1 this is one
of the most important spells a wizard can learn.
Needless to say1 its use necessitates the utmost care
and forethought.
Open doors and chests without a key.

Spring Lock is a spell that forces open otherwise impregnable locks. Be sure
to try it when you eru::ounter a locked door or chest. Note, however, that this
is not a spdl that should be used for personal gain. If rumors
are to be believed, terrible things are wont to happen to wizards whose
greed leads them to spring locks that should
not be sprung.
Traverse continents and oceans in the blink of an eye.

The lcey to instantaneous transportation

is the ability to imagine yourself at your
destination. It is not enough merely to
picture the scenery--all the senses must be engaged.
You have to focus until you can hear the sounds, smell
the aromas, and taste the air of the place in question.
Naturally, this makes it is impossible for a wizard to use
this spell to travel to a location they have never visited.
Float gracefully and glide through the air.

This spell releases a wiurd from gravity's

clutches, allowing him to float weightlessly
through the air. Of course, no human can ever
escape the ground permanenlly, and the time and distance
for which one can Boat are determined by one's magical
abilities. Many wizards have forgotten this, often with
disastrous consequences.
Create a foolproof doppelganger of yourself.

You have no doubt wondered, as many

wizards have, how much better life would
be if you had another self to use as you
saw fit. Master this spell and you n~d wonder
no more. Be aware, howe\'er, that manipulating a
second self is extremely draining, and that even
the most ~rful wizards are incapable of doing
it for \'ery long.
Become invisible and disappear into the shadows.

Using Vanish renders a wizard

invisible to the eye. Furthermore,
it also removes every trace of his
presence and el'en conceals his smell, making
it utterly impossible for anyone to deteet him.
Mastering this spell is considered the first step
towards wizarding excellence.
Uncover troves of hidden treasure.

Use this spell to reveal the locations of

nearby treasure chests, the contents of which
may wdl prove useful during your wizardly
education. 11\ere are certain provisions that can only be
found in these chests, and coming across a real nrity is
by no means unheard of.
Stay safe by concealing yourself from enemies.

This spell creates a thick fog that conceals

the caster's presence &om those nearby.
'Thtre will be times when you have no
choice but to hide &om your enemies, and at such
rimes this spell will prove indispensable. Just bear in
mind that your ,·eil will not hide your blushes should
you be so foolish as to actually bump into an enemy.

It is something to be fearC'd.
Converse freely with both flora and fauna.

Many are the times when men and women wish that
they could converse with the pb.nts and animals
which share their lil·es. Wizards, meanwhile,
know that wishing is an inefficient teehnique, and choose
instead to cast Nature's Tongue. It allows you to glean
from the living world the kind of information that is quite
beyond the reach of the ordinary human.

The wizard who casts this spell gains

the ability to speak with any voice
he desires: a man's, a woman's, a
grandparent'~ven a baby's. It is an extremely _

earshot of unsuspecting humans.
Make a hasty exit from a perilous situation.

Fleeing in the face of danger is sometimes the

wisest-and the bravest--coune of action.
This spell allows you to do just that, no matter
how many walls stand between you and freedom. Note that
the sheer intensity of the translocation process makes it
unsuitable for long-distance tra\·el. It will, however, reliably
extricate you from any ca\'e, maze, or gingerbread house
that you happen to blunder into.
Mark your map with the locations of hidden treasure.

This spell makes it easy for wizards

to locate treasure in the vast
expanses that lie outside a city's
walls. Used in conjunction with Chart Chests,
it ensures that no trusure chest remains hidden
for long. Though it is an extremely useful spell,
thou: who reap its benefits are urged to use their
newfound riches wisdy.

Thrn back the clocks and return an object to its former glory.

allows a wizard to return them to

their original pristine state. When drawing
the rune, be sure to focus on the condition
to which you'd like to return the object,
not on how far bade in rime you think you
need to go.
Produce wondrous new items that are greater than the sum of their parts.

\Vhile wizards can rely on their

cauldron for most necessary
provisions, there are some items
that even alchemy cannot produce. Should you
find yourself in need of one, it is worth giving
this spell a try. No item is beyond the reach of
a master of fusion.
Pick a point in time and leap across the continuum.

Though fraught with danger, this is the only

method by which a wizard may take a leap
through time to a moment of their choice.
The spell is overwhelmingly powerful, and can only ~
used once in a wizard's lifetime--once time has ~en
breached, one cannot go back. Of all the spells available
to a wizard, the casting of this one in particular requires
careful consideration.
Raise a magical barrier that deflects magical attacks.

Ward is a simple spell, yet the barrier

it produces is very effective at blocking
magical attacks. If attack is the best
form of defense, then perhaps the opposite is also
true: the moment after an enemy attack has been
suCtttsfully deflttted is often the he!t time to launch
a devastating counter.
Render a rival wizard incapable of casting spells.

Nix nullifies an enemy's magical power, rendering

him unable to cast spells-a wizard's worst
nightmare. Be aware, however, that such a
powerful spell requires its caster to have great magical ability.
Should two wiurds auempt to Nix each other during battle,
it is said that fortune favors the one with the purest heart .
I 1?

Concoct a range of delicious delicacies.

Magically prepared food has a certain

blissful flavor with which dishes cooked in
an ordinary 0\~n simply cannot compete.
However, it has long been a belief amongst the non-
magical that those who regularly eat food prepared
in this way will eventually forfeit their soul. Though
this suggestion is almost certainly baseless, the sages
agrtt that it is better to use this spell in modention .
Produce a fresh loaf of bread to ward off hunger.

Hunger is a traveling wizard's

greatest enemy. It affects one's
physical strength as wdl as one's
mental capacity and decision-making powers-
often leading to life-threatening situations.
Should you find yourself in such a desperate
state, you can always rely on the Loaf of Life.
Just remem~r that this spell is only to be used
in times of genuine crisis--not merdy when
you're feeling pec:kish.
Find a way across even the greatest impasse.

A wizard's progress is frequently

obstructed by rivers, gorges, and
other such inconveniences. This
spell allows you to build a bridge across such
obstacles and proceed with your journey. The
~arch for truth must go on, after all.
Communicate with the spirits
of the departed.
\Vhile there have been several notable cases of
departed souls communicating with magically
attuned men and women, most spirits lack the
ability to talk to the living. With this spell, however, you can
speak to any spirit you come across. Simply bear in mind that
it is most assuredly not a spell to be used for mischief. ~
spirit world is full of evil souls that will gleefully punish such
wayward wizards.
Make stones and statues move like marionettes.

This spell allows you to manipulate any ~ I,

object as if it were a puppet on a string. ~~~ ·:~, /I
From moving boulders out of your way to \ .~. '\ . •. ,.) /
having dolls pull distant lew:rs, its uses are manifold.
Note that Puppet String may only be used to control
inanimate objects. Any attempt to use the spell to dict:ue
the actions of another living being is doomed to fail-and ·"
unwizardly besides.
Reveal the hopes and dreams invested in an object.

Objects that have been in a person's

possession for a long time are said
to ~ imbued with their owner' s
thoughts and ideas. Such objects retain these
thoughts even after the owner's death, revealing
them only to wizards who use this spell. Be
aware that pwple are wont to entrust their most
personal secreiS to their possessions, meaning
the information you glean should not k treated
Peek inside a person's mind and listen to the voices within.

There are a variety of reasons why

humans decide to close their hearts and
conceal their feelings. Should you wish
to learn more about such people, this spell may be
your only recourse. Mercifully, Open Mind does not
wrench open people's hearts. Instead, it brings you
closer to them, attunes you to their feelings, and lets
you listen to their inner dialogue. Naturally, this
can leave you rather in their thrall, so take care
not to become entranced by the innermost thoughts
of the wrong kind of person.

Add extra heft to a particular object or person.

Burden is an incomparably versatile spell that simply

increases the weight of its target. Render a creature
incapable of movement or attack, crush an object
or unsuspecting enemy, or penetrate armor using
supernaturally heavy pins-the possibilities are
endless. And always having a range of options is
the mark of a line wizard.
Trust in fate and hope for the best.

There will be times in your life

when nothing seems to work, and
the obstacles in front of you seem
insurmount:able. It is on such occasions-and only
on such occasions-that Fortune's Fool could be
your savior. Of course, there is no way of knowing
wh:u etkct it will have--indeed, it could even be
harmful--but desperate times call for desperate
Change your appearance to become a perfect copy of another being.

An extremely powerful spell that allows the caster

to adopt all the characteristics of another living
thing, from the mannerisms of a wizard to the
flying ability of a winged beast. Heading out into the field
and studying creatures in their natural habitats will
increase the number of alternative forms you can adopt.
Reduce your body to a fraction of its size.

Though rarely acknowledged, the size

of a wizard's body can sometimes
limit the options that are available
to him. This spell makes the caster small enough
to fit into someone's pocket, allowing one to slip
in and out of mouseholes, and explore the world
of the miniature. Simply drawing the rune again
re~rses the spell's effect-a fact to remember

in the presence of cats.

Become a cat and experience life as a feline.

This spell turns you into a cat, allowing you to convene

freely with fellow felines everywhere. You could just talk
to them using Nature's Tongue, of course, but they are ~ L
more likely to speak from the heart \. ' \ r
when com·ersing with their own kind. \rJ
L.. J \..M..J Lr
In any case, fully immersing yourself
in another mode of life is an invaluable
experience for any wizard.
Become a fish and discover the joys of the life aquatic.

; ·,
This spell turns the caster into a fish,
and grants the ability to converse with
ot~r aquatic creatures. The difficulties of
breathing underwater ha\oe meant that Nature's Tongue
has never been a practicable method of communicating
with fish, making this spell your only rea1 option if you
wish to gain a dttper undentanding of life ben«th the
water's surface. Some claim that fish have a clearer
view of the world than tho~ who dwell on land--but
clarity should not be confused with wisdom.
Cause a fearsome rain to fall upon your foes.

This spell summons a rainstorm to

pound a small, focused area of the
battlefidd. While the great \'olume of
water produced is powerful in itself, the spell can
also be used for practical things such as putting out
fires. It has long been believed that the rain also
prevents wizards from casting spells. Be sure to bring
this to bear on your enemies.
Summon a terrifying tempest that splits the sky in twain.

No wizard should go into battle without

first having mastered this spell. Not only
d~s the fearsome po~r of the storm
cause damage to your enemies, but it can also blow
them away to a safe distance. Care must be taken,
of course, to ensure that no innocent bystanden are
caught up in the chaos.
Conjure up a blazing orb of flame.

Fireball blasts an enemy with a magical ball of flame,

and is especially damaging to aquatic creatures.
Away from the battldield, it can be used to ~
light lamps, and is useful whenever a spark is required.
It goes without saying that all wizards should be careful
when <kaling with open flames.
Unleash a wave of pure energy upon your enemies.

This spell allows the caster to unleash a

powerful shoclcwa\oe that will flatten anything
in its path. Though a weapon lint and
foremost, Pulse is surprisingly \'enarile, and can be
used to give distant objects a nudge, and for any
number of other purposes besides. Note that it is
best to calm one's mind before casting this spell. An
excess of an~r produces an unpleasant recoil effect.
Turn a hot-tempered foe into a block of ice.

Aim this spell at a chosen point and the temperature there

will plummet, turning the very air to solid ice. Not only
can Frostbite be used to attack enemies in this way, but
it can also put out fires and &eue moving objects to the
spot. On a related note, sages agrtt that aspiring wizards
should always carry a good supply of water with them, .
since learning how water responds to changes in , ...,,;1:'!S!~i?~~,·il:<' ,_
temperature is the key to understanding many
of the principles of advanced magic.
Pierce your enemies with an arrow of radiant golden light.

This spell, which ptod\tt:es gleaming arrows that soar

through the air, is known for being especially
effective against Nightmares.
Additionally, it is claimed that some ancient sages
would lire such arrows into the night sky as a means
of communicating with distant companions-
further proof that adaptability is the hallmark
of a great wizard.
Summon powerful beasts to do your bidding.

Though powerful beings such as guardians

cannot be kept as familiars in the same
way as other creatures, this does not mean
that their strength cannot be harnessed. This spell
enables you to unleash the power of these mighty
beasts upon your hapless enemies. Not every wizard
is capable of summoning such creatures, of course,
and you must provt' yourself worthy before you
may call upon their aid.
Cause the ground to tremble and bring enemies to their knees.

This spell causes the earth itself to shake,

razing both enemies and buildings to the
ground. Much like Thunderstorm and
Cloudburst, each ~ake is in fact a natural blessing,
and it is necessary to give thanks when drawing
t~ rune. Note that foolish wizards who take
a tumble as a result of their own ~ake are
roundly mocked within the magical community,
so do take care.
Conjure up an apple that drips with deadly venom.

The apple produced by this spell will kill you when

eaten--though it is only a temporary death. It is
not the most popular spell, for understandable
reasons, but young wiurds would still do well to master it.
"If you crave life, brave death!" would seem a questionable
mantra, but there may yet be some shred of truth in it.
Breathe life into a Cloud Sweeper and take to the skies.

Cloud Sweepers are the latest fad in Aying

contraptions. Semi-magical, they require
a little hdp to gt"t off the ground--help in
the form of this absurdly named spell. Simply knowing
this rune won't enable you to fly one1 hO\Ire\'er-that
apparently requires a certain amount of innate ability
and a great deal of training. Be sure that learning
to fly C loud Sweepers does not distract you &om your
wizarding studies .
Let the glorious light from your heart burst forth.

Mornstar is a legendary magic wand

that has been spoken of since ancient
times. Mornstar's power, however, does
not come from the wand itself-it comes from its
owner's heart. Only wi7.ards who have braved great
hardship without surrendering to spite or bitterness
are capable of casting this spell, for its glow is that
of the pure-hearted.

~ Merit Stamp Cards ~

Regular pat rons of Swift Solutions receive a special loyalty card known as
a "merit stamp card." Completing tasks yields merit stamps, and filling
merit stamp cards earns merit badges which furnish their owner with
special abilities.
The origin of these cards is shrouded in mystery, but one theory suggests
they we re invented by the Icing of a magical kingdom, in an anempt to
promote heroism and chivalry within his lands. There are even rumors
this Icing was a distant ancestor of the Taslcmasten who run branches of
Swift Solutions to this day.

Bubble, bubble, broyle and blend,

Alchymie, the Wiseard's Friend!

What is Alchemy?

Al~my is one of the main pillars of

wi:z.ardry. To the uninitiated, it appears
to in\'Oive nothing mou than the mixing
of ingrt'dients in a pot. To the aspiring
wizard, however, it is an art unrivalled
in its depth and complexity. With the
necessary knowledge and materials, a
wizard can create items blessed with
near-boundless magical power.

Alchemy can provide you with more

than just simple provisiont--it can be
used toconjureupgrtatswords, shields,
and even objects unknown to this world.
of possible formulae. Note also that true .r
masten take grtat pride in devising their
own formul~mething any aspiring
young wizard would do well to attempt.

Cauldrons and Genies

No alchemy can take place without a cauldron.

Cauldrons can only be opened by wizards, and may
only be used for alchemical purposes. Be sure to treat
your cauldron with the respect it deserves.

Every cauldron has its own resident genie, and it is

the genie who decides whether or not a wizard is
worthy of owning that cauldron.

Should you happen upon a curious pot, be sure to take

a look inside-it may well be a cauldron left over &om
the Age of Sages. If you have difficulty removing the
lid, try saying the magic words.

- The Magic Words

Op<n Says-A-Me
Using your Cauldron

Once you have acquired a cauldron, it will be rim~ for you to take your first tentative steps into
dle realm of alchemy. Though you will no doubt be eager to create your own formulae, it is better
to stick to a proven combination at first. Just remember that some formulae are Jl'IOU demanding
than others, with some requiring ingredients that only grow in far-flung corners of the world.

Note that making tiny adjustments to formulae can product wildly dilferent retuhs, and
experimenting in this manner offers a glimpse at the incredible depth that the world of alchemy
can provide. '!'he image below is around one hundred and fifty ytars old and shows a group of
wizards attempting to create a rain potion. It is said that the cauldron was stirred for thirteen
full days before thepotionwasMallyproduced.

Some claim that there are no limits to what can be created using alchemy, asserting that-with a
sufficiently large cauldron-any wizard can create a castle or palace for themselves. Please note,
howtrtr, that thc:sc claims arc unprortn at the time of going to print.

Sckct a formula. f'Kparc the materials u specified in Carefully following the neps listed in the

Equipping Your Familiars

-1<!8!>1{ Ingestion of Equipment ~

Famili;m do not use equipment in the same way humans de-they do not wield our weapons,
wear our armor, or sport our jewelry. Instead they swallow such items whole, absorbing their
powt:r and enhancing their own natural abilities. Ingesting a $WOI"d1 for example, will improve a
familiar's offensive capabilities, while ingesting a shield will boost their defense.

Ust you wonder, familiars enclose equipment in transparent bubbles prior to ingesting it, thereby
keeping their innards safe, and the items dean and ready for rctricVlll at a moment's notice. Rest
assured that familiars have no qualms about ingesting an item that has already been swallowed
by another crtature.

-1<!8!>1{ Types and Tastes ~

Three types of equipment are used by familiars:

weapons, armor, and accessories. Each equipment
type is wrapped in a diffcrendy colortd bubble when
swallowe-d--weapons arc enclosed in red
bubbles, armor is endosed in blue
blubbles, and accessories are enclosed
in green bubbles.

A familiar's taste11 will dictate

which equipment they use,
and they will stubbornly
refuse to swallow items

There is no cause to worry,

however. Since familian will
only tolente equipment with which
they arc comfortable, you may rest
assurtd that anything they do ingest
will have a positive effttt of one
sort or another on their abilities.

Non·wizards have long been forced to rely upon ~'Chicles to Cll rry them to
thei r destinat ions. This section aims to introduce: some of the more common
modes of transportation currently in use. All wizards are advised to read the
information contained herein, for one cannot predict when circumstance--nixing,

of such infernal contraptions as those here described.

~ Cloud Sweepers ~

Wiurds, of course, do not require magical assistance: to fly through the air.
Indeed, in times gone by, wiu rds would not have countenanced travel by any
means other than broom. Alas, the age has changed, and now young wizards insist
on using half-magiClll, half- mechanical contraptions known as "Cloud Sweepers."

Cloud Sweepers requi re only the merest dash of magic to get them off' the
ground, meaning that inexperienced magic-users- and even non·wizards!-arc

To gi\'e credit where it is due, enterprising enginecn ha\-e gone so far as to

Each Cawtermaster's Store is different, and there are many

items that can only be purchased at a given branch.

'Sintt young wiurds' journeys are invariably punctuated by monstrous encounters,

fr~ent visits to the Cawttrmasttr's Stores to stock up on weapons and ~ipment

\Vhilt there, you may wish to muse upon a question that has puzzled wizards for
generations, namely-are the ~terious Cawtcrmasters actually crows?

~ Rare Weapons and Armor ~

\Vhile the Cawtermasttn' stock lists art extensive, there is a great deal of
t<juipment that cannot be bought at their stores. Some of this equipment
is highly rare, and certain items are wholly unique.
Such items include pistols that allow one to open locks from a distance, and
harps that attack one's enemies when plucked.
Should you be fortunate enough to come across
such rare items, do not be alTaid to use them
on the Jield of battle. A wizard has nothing
to fear from material objects.

Creatures and Familiars

Familiars and Other Creatures

Your journey as a wizard will inevitably bring you into contact wi th all manner of magical
cuatures. \1/hile most will present an obstacle to your progress, others may ytt httome your
familian--stalwart companions that will accompany you on your travels, and aid you in battle.

This chapter introduces many of the most common creatures, and provides dirtttion on how they
may be persuaded to become your familiars.

What is a Familiar?

Creatures are sentient beings that are born from the hearts of living things. There are many
different species in the world, ctrtain of which can usefully be employed by wizards as familiars.
Since familiars are often born liom human heans, many think that all familiars are created in
this Wlly. This is not the case, however. Most creatures can become familiars, irrespective of
theirp~nance .

Anything with a heart-in the senllt of a soul or a spirit--can give rise to a creature, including
animals, plants, sta", and even certain man·mack objects. Note that while creatures not born
of humans au consickud "wild," this does not preclude them from becoming familia". It is
simply a matter of approaching them in the correct manner. ~ most important step in making
a cuature your familiar is giving it a name. Naming creates a bond
between wizard and creature, and ontt you have formed this bond
with a creature, it will willingly take up residence in your cage
and become your familiar.

of living things.

producing creatures.

[ : : : : Serenading

"Serenading" refers to the act of playing music to a creature in a bid to

persuade it to become your familiar. Those in possession of a Spirit Harp
should try ~renad i ng any creature that appears to be rea:pth-e, since
such creatures will invariably agree to ~me familiars
at the conclusion of a suitablt song. Note that some
creatures are more reticent than others, and may
refu~ to listen to your overtures. All creatures
are more receptive to powerful wizards than
to feeble ones, however, so treat thtm to a
taste of your magical po~r and they may
eventually be convinced to take notice.
In practice, this uSU21ly means besting a
creature on tht- banldiel~urther proof,
if any were nttded, that while d~ true
wizard should ever petition for peace, he
should also be versed in the ways of war.

familiars around, iu capacity is unfortunately limited. Should you acqui re

The Creature Cage

Once a familiar has been acquired, it is impera1i~ 1ha1 it is immediately housed in the creature
cage. Don't worry if it sec:ms to be too big-familiars are capable of shrinking temporarily in
order to fit inside. Tht creature cage offers a stimulating environment in which your familiars
can train and relax. It is also a fine place to lavish affection upon them. Sages agree that showing
w;armth toward one's familiars has a positive effect on their de~lopment, so do not be afraid to

A single glance at the familiars in your cage should make it dear that the various species are all
~ry different. Some are placid and predictable, while others are hot-blooded and apt to bite a
wizard's finger off without w;aming.

Do not give up on your more violent familian, howe~r. With a good upbringing and the right
amount of love, they too will open their hearts and become your loyal companions.

As your familiars gain bat de experience, they will start to Jearn various "tricks." 'There are many
different tricks, and the ones that can be learned will vary from familiar to familiar.

Onc-e a familiar has acquirN a certain amount of battle experience, it may be prompted to
metamorphose into a more ad\'mtt'd cmture---one quite dilferent in both appearance and ability-
via the administering of a speeial drop. 'The more times a familiar undergoes metamorphosis,
the stronger it will ultimately become. 'When a familiar metamorphoses for the first time, it will
assume a second form consistent with all other creatures of its type. When it metamorphoses for
a ser:ond time, however, it will assume one of two dilferent final forms.

\Vhile ~uivtly observing your familiars' development can be amusing enough, attempting to uncover
the secrets of metamorphosis represents a much better use of an ambitious young wizard's time.

Enemy creatures will occasionally drop glowing orbs known as "glims" during battle. There are
various types or glim, each one having a diltt'rent e!Kct on the wizard who collects it. Green

however, that the effects or the rarest and most powerrul glims will vary according to the wiu.rd

Familiar Signs

Every creature is aligned with one of four crksrial sign~n, star, moon, and planet--each
with its own distinct characteristics. Of these, a small minority of creatures are aligned with
special, doubly powtrful signs known as "twin signs." A creature's sign has a notable eflttt on
its performance in battle. Creatures aligned with the sun sign, for example, art eflttrive against
those aligned with the moon sign, but inelttctive against those aligned with the star sign.

While creatures of a given species commonly share a sign, this is not always the ease, as other
factors, such as habitat, also influence alignment. Finally, while a familiar's sign may aflttt
its growth tnd metamorphosis, it is important to remember that battle experience is the most
important factor in any familiar's development .

a::=: Nightmares

The Worst Dreams You've Ever Had ..•

As briefly mentioned in the introdoction to the Locket, people become
brokenhearted when the virtues that make up their heart are lost or stolen.
While: most brokenhearted people: can be returned to normal by restoring the:
virtue that is missing &om their heart, some can be possessed by nightmares--a
predicament that is rather more difficult to resolve.

Nightmares are mysterious presences that consist entirely of evil. They seep
into the cracks that form in brol:c:n hearts, further disrupting their lnlance.
Those who are possessed by nigl11mares lose sight of themselves completely
and become totally dilttrent people. Since Nightmares do not generally alter
a penon's appearance, however, their friends and family may not even realize
that the victim has been possessed.
To return the victims of possession to their old selves, one must firn drive away
the Only then can the missing virtue be restored to the ir heart.
T eachings for Aspiri ng Wizards

Knowledge is Power
Each creature has its own strengths and ~aknc:ssc:s, much like each wizard.
Unlike wiu.rds, however, such attributes are largely dctermin«< by a creature's
genus and spei:ies. Ulk, for uample, have: bc:c:n found to be: highly susceptible
to poison, many wiu.rds having obsc:n-c:d their pronounct:d ~action to both
natural and manmade: toxins.

Automata, on the other hand, are generally resistant to poison but suffer badly
when subjected to c:lc:ctrical anacks, which disrupt their inner workings and
prevent them from operating corttetly.

Elemental traits of this kind can vary widely within a genus, and even between
metamorphically linked species. This is due to the fact that some creatures
knowingly ncrifice their affinity with one: element in order to increase their affinity
with another during metamorphosis. One nttd only compare a Fire Ogrrr and a
Water Ogrrr to comprehend the developmental consequencc:s of such a choice.
C reature anributes are therefore extremely varied. Remembering a creatu re's
st rengths and ~aknc:ssc:s, and adjusting one's planofanack accordingly is no

Twelve Tales
of Wonder

Be they comicall or tragicke,

Tall Tales beside the Fire
Are much akinne to Magicke
In the Wonder they inspyre.
The Cowardly Prince
In a certain country there lived a prince named Tamale, who was sharp of mind
but weak 9f spirit. His father was a brave king-strong, wise, and loved by his
subjects-but the noble example he set served only to weaken Tamale's spirit. On
one occasion, his father told him thus,
"Soon, my boy, it shall~ rime for me to retire, upon which thou shalt bet::ome king."
While the announcement delighted the Prince, it filled him also with a terrible dread,
for he did not have the spirit required to ascend to the throne.
In his vexation, he wandered from the castle, lost in thought, whereupon he encountered
a fearsome-looking lion.
The Prince tried to flee, but the Lion caught him easily in his paw, lifted him to his
gaping mouth, and swallowed him whole.
At fir.a, the Prince thought he was doomed, but at length he began to reconsider
his position.
"At least I no longer have to become king!" thought the Prince.
After taking a deep breath, he said to the Lion,
"Mighty Lion, I am the Prince of this country, and the day after tomorrow I was
due to become its king. Since thou hast now swallowed me, however, thou must needs
become king instead ."
"King, eh?" replied the Lion. "I shan't complain about that."
Thereupon, the Prince led the Lion back to the palace.
The courtiers were shocked to see the Lion enter the palace, but the Prince pleaded
with them &om inside his stomach, and the Lion was accepted as king.
The Lion proved to have quite an aptitude for royal duties. Whensoever there was a
dispute in his kingdom, the Lion would simply growl at the quarrellers,
"Stop complaining, or I shall eat you alive. 11
Whensoever a bridge was swept away by a flood,
the Lion would simply use his paws to rip down
a tree and lay it across the river.
Regarding taxation and legal matters, the
Lion was utterly ignorant, but whensoever
such a problem arose, Prince Tamalo would
speak to him from inside his stomach and
provide him with a sound solution.

Two Dragons
After some rime, news reached
the JGng that two dragons were
ravaging the eastern and western
edges of his kingdom. The people
were terrified and looked to their
king to deliver them from this
terrible evil, upon which the King
announced that he should go and
smite the dragons himself.
But even the fearsome Lion stood
no chance of defeating two such
terrible dragons.
"My dear stomach dweller/' said
he then. "What in the wide world
should I do now?''
Prince Tamalo considered the Lion's question, and at length, provided him with a
suitable scheme.
The Lion headed east, to the part of his kingdom that was being ravaged by the larger
dragon, and roared in its ugly face.
"Dragon, I shall soon slay thee! I fear thee not, for no matter how large thou art,
thou shalt never devour me."
"0 hal'' scoffed the Dragon. "We shall see about that!"
Upon which he ate the Lion whole.
From inside the dragon's stomach, the Lion said,
"Dragon, thou art now the King of this land. It is therefore thy royal duty to defeat
the dragon ravaging the western part of thy kingdom."
At first, the Dragon paid him no heed, but when the Dragon wimessed the humans
around him bowing down in deference (as Prince Tamalo had requested them to
do beforehand), he decided to do his royal duty, whereupon he went to the western
mountains and slew the other dragon.
Once the other dragon had been slain, the Lion commenced to scratching the inside
of the Dragon's stomach.
"Owww! It hurts, it hurts!" cried the Dragon, rolling on the floor in agony. "Have
mercy, I beseech thee!"
To which the Lion said,
"If thou wouldst not feel this pain, thou must promise never again to hurt the people
of this kingdom.''
"Owww! Very well! I promise!" cried the Dragon in reply.
But the Dragon was a cunning beast, and Prince Tamale knew that he would break
his promise the moment the Lion was out of his stomach. He therefore had the
Lion take out the babbling berry that he'd told him to bring with him and place it
inside the Dragon. This berry was known to make noises that sounded like someone
muttering to himself.
"With that babbling berry in his stomach, the Dragon shan't notice when the Lion
escapes/' thought Prince Tamale .
Later that night, when the Dragon was sleeping, the Lion crept out of the his gaping
mouth and set off back to the palace. The Dragon left the King and his subjects
alone for evermore.

A New King
The kingdom had been at peace for ten yean when the Lion said to Prince Tamale,
"Stomach dweller, it is time thou earnest hence &om in there. I would have thee take
my place on the throne."
Prince Tamale was shocked, and replied in a quivering tone,
"I fear that I do not have the spirit to become king."
"But thy judgments over the past ten yean have invariably been wise," said the Lion.
"That is as may be, but I am a coward," replied Prince Tamale.
"It was only h«ause I was protected by a great strong lion that I could act so
Yet the Lion paid no heed. With an almighty sneeze, he ejected Prince Tamale &om
his stomach. It had been ten yean since Prince Tamale had seen the wide world
outside, and he could not believe his eyes. The Lion's mane was now full white, and
his face was covered in wrinkles. Shut up inside the Lion's stomach, Prince Tamale
had been quite unaware of any of this.
"As thou canst see with thine own eyes," said the Lion, "I have grown old. Ten
years hast thou resided in my stomach, and yet not once didst thou scratch me or
cause me any pain-as I myself did to that dragon--though thou couldst have done
at any rime. The courtiers and subjects of this kingdom did not accept me because I
am strong, they accepted me because I have given them my all--by which I mean,
thou hast given them thine. Thou art the true King of this country. Thou lackest
not the spirit, I assure thee."
In like manner, everyone at the palace beseeched Prince Tamalo to become their king.
"Prince Tamalo, everyone is humbly grateful for everything thou hast done. Our
country needeth just such a king as thee."
Upon hearing these words, Prince Tamalo felt his courage swell up within him.
As king, Tamalo gave still more of himself to his country, and despite the fact that
the Lion had retired, he continued to live alongside the King in the palace.

Though many countries are ruled by animals these days, in ancient times all kin~ were
human. Indeed, the magnificent lion about whom you have just read was the first ever
animal to be acknowledged as a king, and the world has never been the same since.
The Squirrels
and the Bramble
Protectors of the Forests
Once upon a rime, the whole world was lush and green and covered in countless
forests. In the mild days of spring, children would play in their clearings, making
necklaces &om wild flowers, while in summer, they would shelter &om the sun under
their ancient trees. And in autumn, of course, they would pick and eat their juicy
&uits. Indeed, forests have always been important to youngsters, being care&~ places
in which to play with gay abandon.
But what do you know of the "Forest Guardians"?
Every forest has one. They are believed to be god-like creatures that protect the
woods they inhabit, as wdl as al1 the creatures that dwell within.
But how do these Guardians come into existence?
No human knows for certain, of course, but it is believed that they are somehow selected
from amongst the creatures that live in the forest. Naturally, since the guardian is
responsible for protecting all the forest's inhabitants, the biggest, strongest creature in
the forest is usually the one selected. There has, however, been one notable exception,
as related in this well-known fable ...

A Proclamation from the Deities of the Forest

A FOREST, luxuriant with leaves, was home to a gently flowing river and a spring
that produced fresh water, and all the Beasts lived there in amity-from tiny insects
to creatures as big as two men.
One day, the Deities of the Forest made a proclamation.
"The time has come for you to choose your guardian."
For the forest did not have a guardian at the time. As soon as the message was received,
a controversy prevailed among the beasts of the forest, with each one claiming that
he would make the best guardian.
"These sharp fangs will frighten away any enemy!" growled the Black Wolf.
"These huge claws will shred impostors to pieces!" roared the Gray Bear.
And so it continued, with every large forest animal boasting his own case, from the
Stag with his great antlers to the White Catfish who dwelt in the spring.
The forest's smaller inhabitants-those who had no chance of winning any test of
strength~ould but watch this assembly of the beasts in silence .

The bickering continued for several nights until one day, a golden haze descended
upon the forest, bringing with it an aroma so sweet that the Beasts soon forgot about
choosing a guardian and simply spent the day in a contented daze, staring at the new
golden coloring of the trees around them.
The very next day, however, crimson saplings sprouted from some of the trees, and
quickly grew into a large tangle of red Bramble-for the golden haze the Beasts had
so enjoyed was, in fact, a cloud of evil-disposed spores. By the time any of them
noticed, however, the Bramble had covered the entire forest.
The Bramble
THE BRAMBLE strangled tree aft:er tree, causing them to wither and die. It seemed
only a matter of time before the entire forest would be quite devoid of life.
Thus, the Wise Owl said,
"Somewhere in this forest is the tree in which the spores first took root. That tree is
the source of this terrible Bramble. Cut off its source, and the entire thicket will wilt."
Desperate to save their forest, the Black Wolf and the Gray Bear resolved to find the
tree that the Wise Owl had mentioned. However, the Bramble had grown so thick
and so dense that their great bodies simply would not pass through it . It was rime for
the smaller forest creatures to come to the fore--the ones who abstained while the
other beasts had bickered and boasted about who was strongest.
And so the Mottled Snake slithered through the Bramble, moving deep into the forest,
in search of the tree where 6rst the spores took root.
"Alas! The Bramble wraps the tree completely," hissed the snake. "We shall need to
cut through it somehow, but I have neither claws nor tttth, only this forked tongue.''
Upon hearing the Mottled Snake's report,
the Blue Woodpecker leapt into action.
"I shall peck through the Bramble in no
time!" he chirped with con6dence.
But as he neared the tree which the
Mottled Snake had described, the Bramble
became too thick, and he was quite unable
to spread his wings, let alone Ay close
enough to peck at the Bramble, and thus
he went back dejected.
That was when the Field Mice and the
Squirrels rendered their assistance.
"These sturdy front teeth of ours shall
gnaw through the Bramble," squeaked the
Field Mice.
"But the Bramble goes all the way to the
top of the trtt/' observed the Squirrels.
"Can you truly climb so high?''
The Field Mice had to concede that they could not, and so it was the Squirrels who
set off to cut through the Bramble that surrounded the tree that had been the lint
to succumb.

The Squirrels
THE SQgiRRELS soon reached the tree1 and scaled it with ease. In no time at
all they were nibbling at the Bramble and making light work of cutting through it.
No sooner had they begun to chew their way through the Bramble than large parts
of the thicket that covered the forest fell away and withered-and so the Squirrels
decided to continue nibbling until the tree was completely &ee of the Bramble.
Alas, the Bramble contained poisoned spores, and the Squirrels who swallowed them
soon felt the effects and fell, lifeless, to the forest floor. And yet, this did not deter
the other brave Squirrels, who had resolved to rid the tree of the Bramble and save
the forest at any cost, and each of them continued to chew.
The moment the last of the Bramble was cut, and the entire tangle withered away,
the last remaining Squirrel fell &om the tree, dashing its head upon the ground.
The Squirrels had saved the forest.
When the Black Wolf and the Gray Bear were finally able to wade through the dead
Bramble, they came across the bodies of the dead Squirrels and let out terrifYing cries.

The Guardian
As the animals' cries rang out, the Squirrels' souls floated &om their bodies as pure
orbs of light.
The Black Wolf and the Gray Bear watched in amazement as the orbs floated into a
hollow in the tree, bringing it back to life.
The Deities of the Forest had spoken: the Squirrels were the forest's true guardians.
Though they were among the smallest and weakest of the Beasts, their courage was
greater than all of the largest creatures.

Size has no bearing on a creature's stature.

The Teary Fairy
Sit right, boys and girls, I'v~ got a story to tell you. A "fairy tale," if you like. Fairies like
me used to be ten a penny, see, but youed be hard pressed to find one these days. Always on
the move, we are. Anyway, this story's about a very special fairy, and while it all happened
a long, long rime ago, the fairy's still going strong today--or so I hope, anyway! Right then,
let's get cracking, en't itH
This story's about a little fairy who wouldn't stop crying-sobbing, he was, day and night.
Now, us fairies are helluva impressionable, especially when we're little. We learn all sorts of
tidy tricks from other fairies, but we can pick up bad habits just as easy. I don't know whose
miserable mug this pooer dab saw when he lint popped out into the world, but it must ha\'C been
p~r tragic, 'cause the first thing he ever did in his life was cry. And then he kept on crying.
Now, it's not like this fairy wanted to be spouting lean all the rime, he just couldn't help
himself. E\'Cry time it got dark, he'd well up--like blinking clockwork he was . What's more,
young fairies can be helluva cruel, and this little cry·fairy got ribbed something terrible--all
of which just made him want to cry even more, of coune.

The Puddle of Tears

One day, a traveling wizard happened to spot this fairy standing next to a puddle of tears. He
was proper knackercd, this wizard, and helluva thirsty. So what he did was, he took a drink
from the puddle, en't it?
"There's lovely!" he thought, and felt ten rimes better straightaway.
Then otf he went with a spring in his step, and got on with his wizardly work. A bit later,
when everything was done, he decided to go back and thank the fairy--for the tears he drank,
I mean. But when he came back, the puddle was even bigger than before.
"Ohhh fairy," he said, in this grand old voice. ''Why do you cry so much? I've bttn gone three
days and still you v.>eep."
"Sob," said the fairy. "Scared I am, likt:. Scared of the dark, and I don't know what to do about it ."
After a few more sobs, he went on,
"And everyone mal:e1 fun of me. Good for nothing, I am. Life's rubbish."
And with that, he went back to sobbing.
"I see ..• " said the wise old wizard, stroking his big white beard. "~rhaps a lantern is what
you nttd."

So he whips this tidy lantern out of his cloak, and plonh it on the end of the fairy's nose, right?
Now, the light &om the lantern made the fairy blink like mad, but it didn't half cheer him up,
and sure enough, he stopped crying. Felt like he'd been born again, he did!
"You see, little fairy?" said the wizard, "You shall never be in the dark again, no matter where
you go."
"I'm .•. I'm not scared anymore!" the fairy gasped, cracking the first smile of his whole entire life.
"And you are no longer good for nothing, either!" laughed the wizard . "That smile of youers
will bring comfort to a great many people. Come with me, and I shall show you."
So the fairy packed up his daps in a little bag and went off with the wizard. They had some
pretty hair-raising adventures, and all, but the fairy never once got scared. He had the lantern
on the end of his nose, see. And even after he parted ways with the kindly wizard, he never
cried again, and the light on his nose is still shining to this day. Have a look around you, like.
He might be right nearby!

Well, what do you say? Proper tidy ta1e, wasn't it? I bet you've got a tear in youer eye now!
A Kidnapped Princess
The king of a peaceful kingdom had one daughter, whom he loved very much. This
princess was very brave and very wise, and assisted her father in ruling the kingdom.
Hard by the edge of the kingdom was a steep mountain. No one ever approached it,
however, for it was known that a witch lived in a cave at its foot. This witch had
long had an inclination to rule the kingdom herself, but the fearless princess never
failed to foil her plans .
The Witch had an apprenri~ who was top half bear and bottom half man. This
5 apprentice was known as the Bear-Man, for that was his name; and was feanomely
~ strong, but very dull-witted; and always carried out the witch's commands to the letter.
One day, the Bear-Man was in the cave making potion when the Witch returned with
a young woman. It was-yes, guess!-the Prirn::ess who was always ruining her plans! I
The Bear~ Man looked at the Princess and was twice shocked. Firstly, at how wondrous
fair she was; and secondly, at the sight of her hands and feet, which the Witch had
turned to wood using magic.
"Look after the Princess/' the Witch commanded
the Bear ~ Man. "Do not let her get hungry, or shed
a single tear, else there shall be trouble!"
The Bear~Man immediately went to fetch some fruits
and preserves from the larder. Since the Princess's
hands had been turned to wood, the Bear·Man
tried to put the fruit in her mouth directly. But the
Princess turned away &om him, and looked instead
at the Witch.
"What will you do with me?''
"I shall tell your father that I have taken you
hostage," the Witch replied, "and demand his
kingdom in return for your &eedom.''
"That would be a waste of time," retorted the
Princess. "Father is always telling me not to
believe anything witches say. He will not
trust you, even if I am in mortal danger."
"Silence!" shrieked the Witch1 and with
a wave of her wand cursed the Princess,
who became quite unable to speak. The Witch had stolen

her voice.

The Bear-Man's Duties

The next day, the Witch went to the palace to negotiate with the King, and it was
left to the Bear-Man to provide for their royal hostage.
The Bear-Man liked looking after the Princess. He felt sorry for her, with her wooden
limbs and stolen voice, and he tried his very best to take good care of her.
The Bear-Man was in fact very kind, you see, and despised doing evil things. He was
happy knowing that the Witch would not scold him for being kind to the Princess.
After all, it was the Witch herself who had commanded him to look after her!
But while the Princess did not shed a single tear; neither did she smile so much as
once. The Bear-Man used the finest ingredients to cook dishes that he hoped would
make the Princess happy; but when the meals were served she would do no more than
stare at him in total silence.
Now, the Bear-Man knew that the Princess would only smile when her hands and
legs were &ee again; and she had regained her voice. But the Bear-Man could not
lift the curses himself, and he knew that the Witch would never do it. All he could
do was continue to cook fine meals for the Princess.
The Princess Who
Wouldn't Cry
Several days passed, and still the
King would not listen to the Witch's
demands, just as the Princess had
foretold. This did nothing for the
Witch's mood, of course, and one
morning, when the Bear·Man was
bringing food to the Princess as usual,
the Witch shouted at him,
"Why are you wasting such good food on her!?
Anything will do, as long as it stops her from crying."
"But I thought that the Princess would be happier if she could eat fine foods,
Mistress ... "
"Who told you to make her happy!?"
With that, the Witch snatched up her wand and, with a flick of her wrist, rendered
the Princess stony deaf. She then proceeded to tell the Bear-Man a secret,
"There is a ~ason why I told you to stop her &om crying. If she sheds but a single
tear, all of her cunes will be lifted at once."
The Bear-Man now realized that the Witch had not wanted him to be kind to the
Princess; or to look after her--she had simply wanted him to stop her from crying.
He now knew what he had to do to make the Princess happy once more.
The next time the Witch left: the cave, the Bear·Man put his paws around the Princess's
rosy neck and started twisting; yet she still did not cry. The Bear·Man felt he had
no choice but to strike her; he was strong, and the poor princess was unbalanced on
her wooden legs. She fell to the ground violently.
"Now, cry, I beseech you! Cry and all your curses will be lifted!"
The deaf princess lay on the ground, clearly in pain, yet still she did not cry. She
simply continued to stare directly at the Bear·Man. The Bear·Man, for his part,
resolved to treat the Princess with great cruelty. He stopped feeding her; set snakes
and insects upon her; and pulled out her beautiful golden hair.
The Bear·Man tried his best to be brutish, but when he looked upon the Princess in
agony, he felt so sorry for her that he started sobbing. Though he hurriedly wiped the
tears away with his big paws, knowing that he must not let the Princess see him crying,
it was too late. The Princess had realized that something was amiss, and resolved not
to shed a single tear, no matter what ordeals the Bear-Man put her through.
The Bear-Man snarled and bared his teeth, and treated the Princess more cruelly than
ever. But the Princess was very brave and very wise, and did not shed a single tear.

Tears at Last
A month passed, and the Witch visited the King once more. When she returned to
the cave this time, however, her mood had changed.
"The King refuses to negotiate; and there is no point keeping a hostage anymore. It
is time to kill her. 11
Upon which she waved her wand once more, sending a deadly arrow whistling towards
the Princess.
The Bear-Man immediately threw his great bulk in front her, shielding her &om the
arrow, which pierced his chest. As he crashed to the ground, the wand fell from the
Witch's hand.
The Bear-Man's fate was sealed, but with his last morsel of energy he opened his
eyes and looked up at the Princess. She stared back at him, her eyes wide.
"I have done such terrible things ... I will die an evil man in your eyes ... "
Such were the Bear-Man's sorrowful thoughts as he perished. As he did so, tears fell
in a flood from the Princess's eyes, raining down upon her wooden feet and arms,
lifting the curse and returning her to normal.
The Princess immediately stood, picked up the Witch's wand, and used it to draw a
rune-for the Princess could use magic as well, you see. A large fire engulfed the
cave, and the Witch's wailing could be heard for miles around.
Once the blaze had subsided, nothing remained of the Witch, save for a small pile
of pitch-black ashes.
At that moment, the Bear-Man was brought back to life-as a beautiful young
prince! For his dull-witted bear form was nothing but a cune, imposed upon him by
the wicked witch.
The Prince asked in a weak voice, for he was still upon the brink of death,
"Your Highness ..• Why did you cry for me?"
"Wimessing your death ... It filled me with a terrible sorrow. Had I only known that
crying would lift my cune, I should have done so far sooner! I see now that you were
trying to help me; even as you did those horrible things."
"I treated you terribly, your Highness . Please forgive me .. ."
"Of coune I forgive you. You are a kind penon at heart, and for that I am truly
grateful. Now please, do not die ... "
Upon hearing these words, the Prince shed one final tear, and breathed his last.
The Forbidden Spell
The Princess stared at the Prince's lifeless body for a long while, before picking up
the wand once more with conviction. She had settled upon a course of action.
She would cast "Ashes of Resurrection."
Upon casting the spell, the cave was filled with white light; restoring breath to the
Prince's lungs as it shone upon him--the Princess's spell had brought him back to life!
The very next moment, however, the Princess fell to the ground. As she lay there,
she raised her face and asked the Prince,
"\Vl10 ••• are ... you?"
"'Ashes of Resurrection' is a forbidden spell," he replied, mournfully. "Those who
cast it always pay a terrible price. The price you have paid is your memory of me ... "
And the Prince's eyes filled with tears of terrible sadness once more.
"'Why are you crying?" asked the puzzled Princess.
"Btcause ... something important has been lost."
Upon hearing the Princess's next words, however, the Prince could not help but smile.
"Well ..• perhaps together we may make it anew?''
There was once a boy wizard who was endowed with a great deal of magical ability.
No sooner was he able to walk than he could cast spells no other wizard could,
controlling the clouds above and making great seas and mighty mountains move at
will. In truth, such feats did the boy more honor than he deserved, for he had not
practiced any more diligently than other wizards. His talents were innate, and had
been with him since birth.
The boy, however, grew up quite ttrtain that he had been blessed by the gods, and came
to believe that his rightful place was among them, in heaven itself. No sooner had the
thought crossed his mind than the boy h«ame desirous to make it an immediate reality.
Boys who are born with such exceptional powers are seldom accustomed to waiting.
A Trial from the Gods
The boy made for Jabar al~Dukhan, the highest mountain
in all the world, and climbed to its summit, reasoning
that the gods would hear him more clearly if he were
closer to heaven.
"Gods, I beseech you to listen. I am the most powerful
wizard in this world. Verily, no man alive is my equal,
and thus I believe that my place is in heaven with you. I
wish for you to consider me one of your own."
The heavens responded with an enormous thunderclap.
The boy wizard's insolence had roused the passion of the
gods. The thunder was followed by a bolt of lightning,
aimed directly at the boy.
But the boy was ready. With a simple wave of his wand,
he swaned the lightning away.
"Do you see?" he cried to the gods with glee. "Do you see how powerful I am?"
At length, a Voice responded from the heavens.
"Boy, if you truly believe yourself to be as powerful as a god, then you may prove it
by taking this trial. Overcome it, and your wish shall be granted!'
The boy leaped with great joy upon hearing these words, believing as he did that no
trial was beyond his powers.
Suddenly, however, everything became quite dark. The boy had no idea where he was.
Indeed, his hand could not be seen in front of his face.
The Voice spoke once more.
"Boy, this is the World of Darkness. Your task is to tolerate it for eight days."
"So it is simply a matter of waiting?" thought the boy, relieved. "That shall not
prove difficult."
But the Voice went on,
"There is a door in front of you, Boy. Raise your hand and you shall feel it. On the
other side of this door is the World of Light, where all godly knowledge resides.
Enter, and you shall become one of us. The door, however, must not be opened until
eight days have passed."
With that, the Voice fell silent, and all was quiet once more.
The boy reached out his hand in &ont of him. Though he could not see it, the door
was there, just as the voice had said.
"I shall open that door," the boy said decisively. "I shall wait a full eight days, and
then I shall become a god, and all will be revealed to me."
Seven Days of Darkness
At fint, the boy could do nothing but sit and contemplate his current plight. It was
not long, however, before his mind started conjuring all sorts of thoughts.
What wenden awaited him when he became one of the gods?
What manner of place was the heaven that the gods called home?
How would he treat his human minions once he was one of their gods?
And so it went on ... He found himself increasingly agitated, anxious to see what
awaited him once he opened the door to the World of Light.
He kept his resolve for six days and six nights, but on the seventh day, the boy was
overcome by curiosity.
"In one more day I shall become a god," thought the boy. "Surely it is of no
consequence if I open the door a little early."
He reached for the door once more, and traced its even surface. Eventually his hand
came across a small protrusion which felt like the cover of a keyhole. Timidly, the
boy lifted it and looked through to the other side.
A blaze of blinding light flooded through the keyhole, knocking the boy a full cubit
backwards. It was incredibly bright, and yet he simply could not close his eyes. The
world on the other side of the door was beyond the boy's human imagination. Its
scale and beauty seemed to pierce his very soul.
"The world of the gods ... "
The thought alone made the boy shiver, but even as he did so, he was plunged into
darkness once more.

The Ever-Wandering Eye

The boy had failed the trial. Yet he was still allowed to enter heaven and become one
of the gods, for they acknowledged his abilities, and showed compassion toward him.
They could not, however, show the same compassion toward his eye, the one that
had peered at the World of Light. The eye was condemned to wander, disembodied,
through the skies for all eternity.
The boy wizard's eye traverses the skies to this day, soaring above the birds, gazing
down upon the world below.
It can never hope to soar as high as the heaven where the gods reside, however.
Indeed, it is trapped between the human world and the world of the gods forever.
Occasionally, when it is overwhelmed with extreme dissatisfaction, the eye swoops
down close to the earth's surface, bringing a devastating whirlwind in its wake. These
howling gales are known to have destroyed cities and forests; and are rightly feared
by ordinary humans.

And so, the consequences of the boy wizard's folly are still being felt.

On a Hilltop
\Vhat follows is the extraordinary story of an ordinary little girl. ..
\Vhen I was a little girl, I had the reddest hair you've ever seen, and I lived with my
mother in a small village, tucked away in the hills. I was never any good at magic,
but I loved gardening, and could grow all sorts of flowers and medicinal herbs.
Behind my house was a low hill from which you could enjoy a wonderful evening
view. I used to walk to the top of it every night, to sit on a big old root and watch
the sun go down .
One day, my mother cut her hand on a glass that I had broken. Though she washed
the wound straightaway, just as she'd always taught me, the cut soon became infected,
and by the next morning, she had a very high fever. I took care of her the best I
could, of coune, but several days passed without any improvement in her condition.
Then one night, after I'd cried myself to sleep with worry, I woke with a start to find
myself standing in front of a strange door. I opened this door, and walked through it
to emerge on top of my favorite hill. It looked just the same as it always did, except
for one thing-there was someone else there, sitting on my root and sobbing quietly.
I took a sharp breath, and thought to myself; could the girl sitting on
the root actually be me? Her hair was just as red as mine, and
it glittered like a ruby in the setting sun.
The Bright Blue Bird
I was feeling quite sad m}'5elf, but the girl sitting on the root seemed absolutely
inconsolable. Feeling sorry for her, I asked,
"Are you all right? Why are you crying?"
At this, the weeping girl lifted her face, giving me another shock. It was exactly
like mine!
"1 was careless ... and my bird flew away,' she said. 'Oh, I did love it so ... "
"So that's why you're crying. I've been careless too, as it happens. I made my
mother sick ... "
I thought for a moment, then asked,
"What kind of bird was it?"
"It was blue. Bright blue. It was so very beautiful ... "
" ... My mother's eyes are blue as well," I sighed, "but they don't seem to sparkle
like they did before she took ill.''
We carried on talking for a little while, and before long we'd become firm &iends.
She loved gardening too, and was enjoying gazing at the sunset &om the crest of the
hill. It seemed we had absolutely everything in common. Eventually, I said,
"Here, take this. It's a Rower I grew. It's called a 'warm welcome/ and birds love
it. Perhaps it might make your blue bird come back."
I had already put some of these fl.owers at my mother's bedside to try and make her
feel better, as well as some in her hair.
"Thank you!" said the girl, smiling. "Oh my, it really does smell
wonderful. Hey, would you like to come to my house?''
I nodded, and off we went, down the hill together
and into the girl's house. She placed the fl.ower
I'd given her next to the window.
Before long, we heard a sound.
"Peep peep peep! Cheep cheep cheep!"
And a blue bird fl.ew in through the
"Chichi!" shouted the girl,
recognizing her missing pet.
Th~ bird had flown straight for the vase that held the flower. It ~~m~d a lin!~ unst~ady,
as though on~ of its wings was injur~d, but I couldn't help f~~ling happy that th~
"warm welcom~" I'd given the girl had made her bird com~ back.

Waking From the Dream

All of a sudden, I was in &ont of the strange door again. I walked through it and
found myself lying in bed once more.
"It was just a dr~am," I sighed.
Then I threw off the sh~~ts, and went to my mother's bedroom. Much to my surpris~,
though, I found that sh~ wasn't there. That's when I heard a sound coming &om the
kitchen, and ran downstairs.
"Mother!" I cri~d.

"Good morning!" she r~plied cheerily.

"You must have be~n wondering where I'd got to! I just felt so much b~tter when
I woke up this morning! Now then, would you like some breakfast? I'm famished!"
And my mother's blue eyes were sparkling once more•..

Every person in this world has a soul mate-a person in another world with whom
they share a soul. Soul mates' destinies are intertwined, and occasionally they even
overlap. So should you ever chance to step through a strang~ door, do not be surprised
if you meet someone just like you!
The Little Girl
IN XANADU, the kingdom in the clouds, the ruler has always possessed many a
mysterious power, not least the ability to make the most prescient of prophecies. This
is the story of one such ruler, of whom little was expected when first she ascended
to the throne ...
Xanadu's new ruler was a little girl, cowardly and weak. Though it was a peaceful
place, with a temperate climate and few if any monsters, Xanadu had never known a
cowardly ruler. The thought alone was simply preposterous.
The girl herself knew that she was a coward, having never displayed courage or daring
since the moment of her birth. She was scared of sleeping alone, and the thought
of being in the temple at night filled her with a holy dread. Despite claiming that
she had a well of courage to draw on if necessary, she would undoubtedly have been
found wanting if she had been asked to deal with a giant, or a dragon, or even a lion.
Life surrounded by adults was lonely and dull for the little girl. She had no friends,
and became very sullen. As a result, everyone assumed that she was humble and wise,
for most of those who rise to rule over Xanadu are powerful sorceresses, and prone
to self-importance. Though baseless, the myth of the little girl's wisdom meant that
her reign was very peaceful, with none of the tensions or infighting that marred the
reigns of her predecessors.
Sinister Rumors
SHE HAD NOT ruled for long, however, when it became apparent that a dragon
had taken up residence near Xanadu, in a great cavern, measureless to man. Alas, this
was no ordinary dragon. Indeed, it was said to be as large as a castle, utterly evil,
and endowed with a tail twice five miles long. Such sinister rumors grew, as sinister
rumors always do, and by the rime they'd reached the palace, they had the courtiers in
a state of some excitement. After much frantic discussion, a conclusion was reached.
Their ruler--the little girl-must be sent to deal with the dragon. Though she was
still young, everyone believed her to be both wise and brave, and it was concluded
that her age was of no significance. Thus, having no choice but to fulfill the duty
assigned to her, the little girl set off for the dragon's cavern.

A Savage Place
THE WANING MOON cast scarcely any light into the dismal cavern, and big
wet drops fell onto the little girl's head as she made her way through the darkness,
nervously clutching her wand. Though she quivered with fear, she knew that she had
little choice but to push on. She was the ruler of Xanadu, after all, and rulers must
show courage, however frightened they may be.
Having pushed deep into the cavern, the girl finally encountered the dragon. It was
not as big as she'd feared, but it would still have ordinarily been more than a match
for a little girl like her. The dragon, however, was injured. One of his wings was
broken, and he was unable to fl.y. Indeed, he had no way at all of avoiding the little
girl's spells. It seemed the tables had turned in her favor. Just then, the dragon turned
to her, and said,
"You came alone? I suppose you knew I was injured. I shall surely perish soon. All
you need do is wait, and your duty shall be fulfilled."
But the little girl took out her wand and proceeded to draw a rune. The spell she
cast began to heal the dragon's wounds. Being so young, it took a long rime for the
healing magic to work, but her concentration never wavered.
"Heal me, and I could come after you, and eat you. Are you sure about what you're
The little girl thought for a moment, before replying politely,
"I should not like to be eaten, yet I do not see why you should die. Perhaps we could
reach an agreement instead? I will heal your wing if you swear to spare this kingdom."
The dragon made no reply, and simply gazed at the girl with flashing eyes. Once
his wing had been fully healed, the dragon picked up the little girl and, placing her
on his broad back, strode out of the cavern. Then, flexing his newly healed wing, he
carried the girl to the summit of a tall mountain. As the dragon reached the top of the
mountain, it seemed to grow in &ant of the girl's eyes . At last it began to resemble
the castle-sized dragon that the courtiers of Xanadu had mentioned. Indeed, it began
to look as though it could eat a castle thrice over.
"This is my true self," declared the dragon. "Now, you may be weak, but you are
both courageous and kind. My original intent was to eat every one of your subjects,
but I have decided to honor our bargain, and spare this kingdom."
The dragon's kind words touched the little girl deeply, and the two of them became
great friends. Then, the dragon shrank back to his smaller size and put the girl on
his back again, and together they made for Xanadu. When they reached the city 1
however, the dragon grew big once more. When the little girl explained what had
happened to her courtiers, they realized not only that she was wise and brave, but
that she was also very kind. From that moment on, she was no longer refened to as
the "little girl." She had become the "~een of the Heavens ." She never forgot her
dragon friend, and they spoke together often until the end of their days.
The Lazy Son
TWO SHEPHERDS, who were father and son, worked together in the fields. The
Father looked after the sheep &om morning till night, constantly patrolling the pasture
and looking out for wolves. The Son, however, spent every day at leisure, staring into
the distance and not lifting a finger to help his Father.
One day, the Father turned to his Son and said with regret,
"I am getting old, and shall soon be retiring. Though you are my only son, it has
become dear to me that you have no enthusiasm for shepherding. I am starting to
think that I should be better entrusting my flock to someone else."
The Son was quite shocked, for the flock was his only livelihood, and resol~ to
start ass~sting his Father in the field~hasing sheep, tending the grass, and so on.
Alas, he soon grew tired of such tasks. At a loss as to what to do, the Son supposed
he should pay a visit to Old Father Oak, an ancient tree in the Deep Dark Wood
possessed of infinite wisdom on all matters.
"0 Old Father Oak, is there not some manner of fruit that I can swallow to excite
my enthusiasm?" the Son asked in vexation.
"I am afraid that such things do not exist/' replied Old Father Oak. "There is,
however, a fountain hidden deep within a nearby forest. Drinking of its water provides
a goodly dose of energy."
The Fountain
THE SON traveled in the dir~tion indicated by Old Father Oak until he came to
the fountain and tested its cool surface with his hand.
"I shall take some of this water home with me." he thought, before realizing that he
had no vessel in which to carry it.
"Alas, I must return home empty-handed ... " he lamented.
The Son was about to go back to fetch a jug when he decided to sample a mouthful of
the fountain's water. Sure enough, he immediately felt the great surge of energy that
Old Father Oak had predicted, and used his ax to chop down a nearby tree, carving
it into a pitcher that was almost as big as himself.
Once the pitcher was finished, the Son filled it with water from the fountain and made
for home. The vessel was very heavy, and the journey was a long one. He nearly gave
up on several occasions, but every time he felt like abandoning his journey, he would
stop by the wayside to take another gulp of water from the pitcher; and eventually
he arrived back home.
"I have water enough here to last a lifetime," the Son thought with a sigh of relief.
He was very weary, and he fell into bed to sleep soundly rill morning.
The Pitcher
THE SON awoke &om his slumber, and resolved to take another drink of water from
the pitcher.
"0! How full of life I am!" he exclaimed happily, and set about his duties at double
the usual s~ed. As he did so, he resolved that no one else must be allowed to drink
the precious water in the pitcher.
In the days that followed, the Son spent much of his rime ensuring that no one went
near his pitcher--yet he took care to attend to his chores while he did so, knowing
that his father would otherwise be angry. Whenever a Villager approached the pitcher
for a drink of water, the Son would interrupt his own labors and offer a cup of different
water, thus preventing any of the water in his pitcher from going to waste. He was
also reluctant to waste the water from the fountain on himself; and so worked hard
every day without touching it.
Then, one very hot day, after the Son had been hard at work in the fields, he realiud
that a terrible thing had happened ...
The Water
THE WATER had evaporated in the searing heat of the sun. When the Son realized
that the water upon which his future depended had disappeared, he was overcome with
despair and collapsed upon the grass.
The sight of the Son lying prone excited the Villagers' concern; and they rushed to
see if he was all right, for the Son had a gained reputation in the village for being
kind and hardworking, on account of all the cups of water he was wont to provide
thirsty Villagers.
Some of the Villagers gave the Son a drink of water as he lay there, and he was
amazed at how delicious it tasted. It was the freshest, cleanest water he'd ever drank;
and, what's more, it gave him the same surge of energy that the water &om the
fountain had done.
His Father stood next to him and said kindly,
"No water on earth can compare to the first water you drink after swearing all day.
Why, I should think it is a fair sight better than the water from that fountain,'' for
the Father knew that his Son had visited the fountain.
The Son rose to his feet and smiled back at his Father.
"You are right, Father. It truly is better by far."

Hard toil brings its own rewards.

Four Brothers
In a certain kingdom, there once lived four brothers. Though their parents had both
died, and they had grown up poor, the brothers had become famous and highly regarded.
The first brother was very strong. Once, when the kingdom was in need of a new lake,
he had lifted a stone bigger than three dragons out of the ground, creating a great
hollow. He then carried the stone to the top of the tallest mountain in the land, lest
it prove an eyesore to anyone. The King could not contain his delight as he watched
the hollow slowly 61Jing with water.
The second brother was the greatest artist in the land. He wtnt to the top of the
mountain, and carved wonderful sculptures &om the stone that his brother had carried
there, and offered them to the King, who was rendered speechless for the lint rime
in his life by their beauty.
The third brother was known as a master craftsman. He took the sculptures that his
brother had made and erected sturdy walls between them, creating a mighty castle.
He even used the remaining pieces of stone to build a working clock. The King was
amazed at how it always told the correct rime, despite being made of stone.
The King now had a new castle that he believed was the most beautiful, the best
defended, and the most convenient in the wide world. The brothers were delighted, and
became full of confidence, for each of them believed that he was the greatest man alive.
"I am the one the King should thank for having such a wonderful castle. After all, I
am the one who carried that stone all the way up the mountain. Thou mayest have
carved the stones, and thou mayest have bound them together, but had I not brought
the stone up here in the first place, nothing of that could have been done/' said the
first brother.
"Ha! But the King would not have looked twice at the castle had I not carved those
sculptures so beautifully!" retorted the second brother.
"And yet it was I who took thy sculptures and made them into a castle. What use
hath a king for sculptures, pray tell, beautiful though they may be?"
After some time, these
discussions became so &actious
that the three brothers resolved
to live apart, on the eastern,
western, and southern edges of
The youngest brother of the
four was unlike his three older
brothers. He excelled at nothing,
and was weak and clumsy.
Though his older brothers
would mock him constantly, the
youngest brother was a docile
sort, and did not pay much heed
to such insults. He was, however,
worried about his brothers living
apart, and he resolved to pay
each of them a separate visit.

A Thick Fog
A short while later, disaster befell the
kingdom. A thick fog covered the entire
land, blocking all sunlight for one hundred
days. Crops would not grow, and people
became unwell, and yet the very worst of it
was that the fog put an end to all music, for
it simply could not be heard through the
heavy brume. The whole kingdom adopted
a silent, funereal air, and still the source
of the fog remained a mystery.
One night, as the King slept fitfully, he
had a strange dream. In it, someone was
telling him that the only way to clear the
fog was to play a certain Jlute--the most beauteous flute in the world. Upon waking,
the King immediately summoned the three brothers who had built his castle and
commanded them to build such a flute. Since the three brothers no longer spoke to
one another, however, they would not cooperate, and each went off to carve his own.
"I am the only one capable of making a flute fit for a king," said one brother. "It is
simply too great a feat for the two of you."
"Ha! Thou mightest better say that of thine own selfl" countered the second. "My
flute will be the finest, as thou shalt soon see."
"Boast if you will!" scoffed the third. "All men know that mine will be the best!"
And so the arguments continued.
Afl:er some rime, all three brothers finished making their flutes, and went to present
them to the King and his subjects. All the kingdom gathered on the shores of the
lake that had been created by the first brother, anxious for the presentation to begin.
The first brother picked up his flute, which was very big and made of stone, and
blew. Try as he might, however, the flute would not produce a sound. The King
soon turned his attention to the second brother. His Jlute was a beautiful, delicate
instrument made of clay, but when he blew it, it too produced no sound. The King
was now becoming nther agitated, and hastily commanded the third brother to blow
his Rute. It was made of a single bone, with holes drilled in the appropriate places,
and yet it too could produce not a single note. The King was furious, and banished
the brothers &om his sight.

The World's Greatest Flute

Several days later, the King awoke to hear the song of the flute that he had dreamed
about. It was a beautiful sound, one that cleansed the heart and brought tears to the
eyes of royals, ministers, soldiers, ploughmen, and even the baker's cat, whom many
had thought deaf. As the A.ute played on, the thick fog that had plagued the kingdom
began to dear.
The King was naturally delighted, and started searching for the source of this blissful
sound. Trusting to the evidence of his ears, the King came at last to the house of
the fourth brother. There he found him and his thr« brothers sitting together, with
tean in their eyes.
The King began to extend his warmest gratitude to the youngest brother, but was
politely interrupted,
"Alas, this flute was not my work. My three brothers built it."
And he proceeded to explain all that had come to pass.
The youngest brother had been visiting his three brothers every day, hoping to persuade
them to work together as before, but his brothers were stubborn, and would not listen.
Aft:er some rime traveling hither and thither, from south to east to west and back
again, all the youngest brother's efforts got the better of him, and he collapsed in a
heap. When his three elder brothers heard what had happened, they all felt sorry for
their youngest sibling, and went to visit him as he recovered.
The eldest brother visited him first.
"Is there aught I can do for you?" he asked.
"Indeed there is, hie thee to the forest, and cut down the tallest tree thou findest
there. Chop it then into small pieces and bring them here to me."
Thinking that his brother wanted firewood to keep him warm under the thick fog, the
first brother agreed to do as he was asked.
''Very well, younger brother," he said, "I shall start cutting right away."
"Thank you," the youngest brother replied from his bed, and before long the first
brother came back, a smile on his face and a pile of logs under his arm.
The next day, the second brother came to visit his youngest sibling.
"Is there aught I can do for you?'' he asked, upon which the youngest brother brought
out one of the logs that the first brother had cut for him.
"Indeed there is . Carve of this wood something beautiful for me. Perhaps a pipe?''
Thinking that his brother wanted on ornament in his room to make him feel better,
the second brother agreed without the slightest hesitation.
"Very well, younger brother," he said, "I shall start carving right away."
"Thank you," the youngest brother replied from his bed, and before long the first
brother came back, a beautiful wooden pipe under his arm.
The next day, the third brother came to visit his youngest sibling.
"Is there aught I can do for you?'' he asked, upon which the youngest brother brought
out the pipe that his second brother had carved.
"Indeed there is. Wouldst thou be so good as to drill some holes into this pipe for me?"
Thinking that his brother wanted something to entertain himself while he was ill, the
third brother gladly agreed.
"Thank you," said the youngest brother from his bed when his older brother had
returned with the finished pipe, "but I actually have one more request."
"Of course, younger brother. What is it?"
"Call our two brothers, and tell them to come here.''
Though the third brother hated his older brothers, he could scarce refuse his ailing
sibling's request, so piteous did he seem, and he agreed to go and fetch them.
Despite all being gathered beneath the same roof, the three brothers would not look
at each other, much less speak.
Then, in the midst of the silence, the youngest brother pulled out the flute they had
made and lifted it to his lips.
As soon as he began to play, the three brothers began to weep, realizing how foolish
they had been. As they listened to the sound of the flute, they recalled the past that
they had shared: their humble home; their parents who had loved them so; the days
when they had supported each other and helped each other before they won fame.
The four brothers continued to weep as they realized that each was only truly special
when he worked with the others-all four of them, indeed, for it was only the youngest
brother who could produce a pure note from their flute. The tears they wept were the
most beautiful tears the world had ever seen, for they were tears of love.
After the King had finished listening to the youngest brother's story, he decided to
give all four brothers a special medal. From that day onwards, the brothers agreed to
always work together, and they all lived happily ever after.
The Dreamer
There once was a boy who spent every day in a daze, dreaming of soaring through
the skies.
As a young child, he was always asking wizards to make him float for a few moments-a
delightful experience!~ut he himself was no good at magic. Since he also hated
lessons of all kinds, there really was no hope of him becoming a wizard, but still he
dreamed of being able to fly. Nothing could make him give up on his dreams!
One day, the boy took a journey to another world. There was a tunnel that connected
the two worlds in those days, you see, and people we~ able to travel between them
quite easily.
Now, the boy knew that there was no such thing as magic in the other world, meaning
that no one there was able to fl.y. He had, however, heard rumors about a painter who
lived there who also dreamed of taking to the skies, just like he did.
As soon as he arrived in the other world, the boy headed straight for this painter's
house--but when he got there, there was no one home! Feeling rather bold, the boy
decided to take a look around for himself. The first thing he saw upon entering the
painter's house was a magni6cent sketch, a drawing of a strange machine that was
attached to something that spun around very quickly.
There was no doubt about it-this was a machine that could Ay!
"'What a shame," thought that boy, "that in my world, magic is so common that no
one bothers inventing things like this!"
Flushed with excitement, the boy took a tracing of the painter's sketch, and took it
with him back to his own world.
After working hard for several years, the boy 6nished building the machine in the
sketch, and for the 6rst rime ever, he was able to Ay!
"'Why, this is the happiest moment of my life!" thought the boy with a big grin. Even
though it was only for a few seconds at a rime, he was 6nally able to live his dream.

The Sage and the Young Wizard

A short while after he had finished building the painter's flying machine, a sage visited
the boy, and spoke to him very grandly,
"You must dispose of all knowledge gleaned from that other world."
The boy was shocked.
"But why!?" he asked. "This machine lets me soar through the skies! It's what I've
always wanted!"
"Using a machine to achieve something that should only be achieved using magic is
akin to poisoning this world."
"Poison!? Why is it like poison?"
"Magic may only be used by those who possess a pure heart and who have undergone
the proper training. Wiurds borrow some of nature's power and use it to humans'
bene6t. Only those with a pure heart, one uncorrupted by evil, are able to do this.
Using machines to triumph over nature is not the behavior of the pure-hearted."
Now, what the sage meant was that anyone could use a machine to manipulate
nature--even the untrained and the evil. Machines gave ordinary humans powen
that only gods and wizards should have.
Though it hurt to admit it, the boy knew that what the sage had said was true, and
very reluctantly handed over his tracing of the painter's sketch. As he did so, however,
a young wizard who had been watching them interjected,
"Esteemed Sage, wasn't magic originally intended to make our lives easier? If machines
achieve the same effect, why shouldn't we use them?"
"Because machines can be used by the wrong people, for the wrong reasons," replied
the sage impatiently.
But the young wizard was undeterred.
"I have been to the other world, and I know how things work there. They have
people called 'scientists'-they are the ones who make the machines-and they work
mira.cles! They are capable of mixing iron with other metals to create things
called 'alloys' which are strong enough to plough even the rockiest of soil. You cannot
deny that farmen' lives are much easier as a result!"
"Surely you do not believe that all 'scientists' seek to improve people's lives?" the
sage snapped back. "Do you not think, perhaps, that some of them wish to use their
machines to control people--to bend them to their will?"
The young wiurd was speeehless for a moment, but he soon found his tongue again.
"Couldn't the same be said for magic? Aren't there some people who seek to use
magic to increase their own inftuence?''
The boy tried listening to the conversation between the sage and the young wizard,
but they used a lot of difficult words and he had trouble following it. All he wanted
to do, after all, was fly.

- ~

A Dream Come True!

In the years that followed, more and more people made visits to the other world . They
would become increasingly surprised and impressed by the machines they saw there,
and would rush back to their own world to tel1 people al1 about them.
The sages realized that something must be done, because teehnology from the other
world w:as threatening to ruin the balance of their own. They decided to seal the
tunnel to the other world, to ensure that the place of magic within society was never
threatened again .
Now, visiting the other world was not completely forbidden--why, powerful wiurds
could still cast the spell known as "Gateway" and travel to the other world any rime
they pleased!
When the boy, who was a young man by now, heard about what the sages had done,
he was terribly disappointed.
"Dash it all!" he thought. "Now I'll never be able to visit the other world again!"
And yet he still dreamed of flying-if anything, he dreamed of it more than ever!
Having thought about it every day for a long rime, he eventually had an idea.
"What if I build a flying machine that's powered by magic? Surely the sages couldn't
object to that! I shall make it magical, but I shall jolly well build it and fly it as I like!"
Many months of hard work later, the young man's magical flying machine was complete.
Its magical power had been provided by-yes, you guessed it!-the young wiurd
who'd had the argument with the sage all those years ago.
Once the final touches had been applied, it was rime for a test flight . The young man
straddled his machine and took off into the sky. 'I'be machine's wings flapped gently
as it glided through the air, and its magically enchanted engine allowed him to stay
in the sky for several hours.
Mid-way through the test flight, he looked down. The sheep in the fields were as
small as dormice, and he could see the waves of the sea in the distance glinting in
the morning sun.
"I don't think anyone alive has ever felt happier!" thought the young man with glee.
Indeed, he was too captivated by the scenery to spare a thought for the effect his new
magical machine would have on the world.

Had he known what impact it would have, you can be sure he would not have been
quite so elated!
The Deep Dark Wood is a dense green forest, located in the northern part of the
continent now known as the Summerlands. Though there are some beautiful crystal-
clear waterfalls and other sites of minor interest, travelers mainly flock to the Deep
Dark Wood on account of a great tree known as "Old Father Oak/'
Princes and paupers alike have long visited this tree in the hope of gleaning some
understanding &om him, for Old Father Oak's great wisdom and benevolence have

led men to consider him the "World's Elder"-though no such title officially exists.

The Young Tree's Journey

There was nothing unusual about the tree that became known as Old Father Oak when
his first green shoots emerged &om the ground, many centuries ago. The tree grew,
as all trees grow, year on year, his branches reaching upwards in search of sunlight
and his roots thrusting downwards in search of water.
One day, when he was still but a young sapling, he was dug up by a group of humans,
and a large stone was placed beneath him, just below his roots. And he was then
replanted on top of the stone, and the hole around him refilled with soil. And the
humans recited an incantation, and drew a rune, and, when this ceremony was over,
retreated &om the forest.
Now, the presence of the stone made life difficult for the young tree--no matter how
hard he tried to stretch his roots, the stone meant that they simply could not reach
any further into the ground. After several days of trying, the tree was about to give
up when, all of a sudden, the stone started speaking to him
"Tell me, what can you see &om up there? Pray tell me what you can see? For I am no
ordinary rock. One day I shall be a magical stone. A great and very important one."
The tree was very surprised to hear the stone talking to him so casually, and not a
little vexed.
way of my roots."
The tree uttered these words much to his own surprise,
for he had never been able to s~ak before.
And so the stone began explaining his situation to the tree.
It ap~ared that in order for the stone to become a magic stone,
he had to be pla~d beneath the roots of a tree, and enchanted
in a special ceremony. And so, as the tree grew older and wiser,
he would impart some of his wisdom onto the stone, and allow the
stone's own magical power to develop. The tree's ability to talk
was simply one of the things he had learned as he had grown, and
the stone had learned this from the tree.
Armed with his newfound talent, the tree began talking to the
birds and the fairies and the other forest creatures, and, upon
hearing their tales of the outside world, developed an insatiable
desire to travel-to leave the spot to which he was rooted.
And so he began pulling at his roots, until
cracks ap~ared in the ground. He
kept pulling day after day, unable
to stop or be stop~d until,
eventually, the inevitable happened, and, with a great creaking sound, the tree wrenched
himself and his short roots out of the ground altogether. It was at this moment that
the young tree discovered that he knew how to walk, and so resolved to leave the
Deep Dark Wood immediately and make for pastures new.
The stone felt very sad to see his only friend in the world preparing to leave, and said,
"Promise that you will come back and see me sometime, won't you, young tree? I
should like nothing more than to hear all about your travels."
"Of course! I shall come back to see you, I promise."
And so the tree set off on his journey. He felt sorry for the stone--who would now
never become the magic stone he so wanted to be--but he knew that he had to follow
his own dreams.
The young tree's journey allowed him to acquire great wisdom. Every time he
encountered perils or monsters, he would simply stand stock still and pretend to be
an ordinary tree. Should a predator come sniffing, the young tree would wait until it
was very close before rustling his branches violently, giving the creature a terrible

fright, and sending it scuttling away in fear.

The Promise to the Stone

The tree's journey continued, through stonns and blizzards; into dank, black caves
and across deep, blue oceans. On the way, he would sometimes meet other trees on
journeys of their own . Most of the trees he encountered had also been chosen as
locations for burying magical stones, and they too had left their stones behind and set
out on their own adventures. He also encountered trees that were broken or withered,
having become lost in the desert, or trapped in great snowfalls.
One day, several months into his journey, the young tree realized that it was becoming
more and more difficult for him to move. No matter how much fresh water he drank,
or how pleasant the sun felt upon his leaves, he was becoming slower and slower.
"This must be what happened to all those dead trees I saw," the tree thought. "And
that's what's going to happen to me ... "
Suddenly, the tree remembered the promise he had made to the stone back in the
Deep Dark Wood- his promise to return to the forest and tell the stone all about his
travels. The young tree had not visited the stone once since that day. Indeed, he'd
completely forgotten about him.
"I should go back," he thought. "I should return and speak to the stone, while I still
have strength enough to move."
And so the tree set off home, back to the Deep
Dark WOO<!.
The tree's short roots were dragging behind him
all the way, trying to get him to stop, but the
tree ignored them, and eventually made his way
back to the forest where he'd first sprouted from
the ground. The sight of his old stone companion,
however, gave him a real shock. Having failed
to become magical, the stone had been mistaken
for an ordinary rock, and most of him had been
chipped off and carried away to make tools and
other objects. Only a tiny piece of him remained. Undeterred, the young tree proceeded

to recount all his travel stories, and the little stone listened to every one in silent wonder.

What Happened Next •••

When the tree had finished telling the stone the last of his tales, he thought to himself,
"Now that I have fulfilled my promise to the stone, I shall not mind if I wither and
die where I stand."
Curiously, however, the tree noticed that he was feeling far healthier than he had for
a long while. It turned out that much as the stone's ability to talk had come from the
tree, the tree's ability to walk had come from being near the stone. And as he spent
more and more time away from the stone, the tree had started to lose this power. He
now understood that the unfortunate dead trees he had seen on his travels had lost
the power of movement on account of neglecting to visit their stone companions.
The tiny stone and the tree, who was no longer very young, formed a firm alliance,
and became inseparable friends. Indeed, the tree placed the stone into a hollow in his
trunk, allowing him to share all his knowledge and wisdom. The two would occasionally
go on journeys together, acquiring even greater experience and wisdom, for it turns
out that while the stone had not become magical during the tree's long absence, he
had become incredibly knowledgeable.
As the yean went by, the tree and the stone garnered great repute for their surpassing
wisdom, becoming known as "Old Father Oak" and "The Telling Stone," respectively.
Indeed, to this day, travelers still venture into the Deep Dark Wood seeking advice
from this most unlikely pairing of tree and stone.

And so ends this branch of the story of Old Father Oak and The T elling Stone.
The Young
Woman's Journal

An old traveler stood on a street comer, telling a crowd of people all about his
adventures. The crowd enjoyed listening to his tales, and one of them asked him,
"%at is the most incredible thing you have ever seen?''
The old traveler thought a while, and answered,
"Let me tell you about a notebook I found. I was traveling through some truly
inhospitable terrai~ jungle so thick that no light passed through its canopy, located
in the foothills of a steep mountain range. I was certain that I was the first human
to set foot in the place-until I came upon a notebook. Imagine my surprise when I

All:er the old traveler had finished reading the journal, the crowd that had assembled
before him stood silent for a long while. Before any of them could think of what to
say, the old traveler turned around and shuffied off to continue his wanderings. But
just as he was about to leave the town, he looked back at his dumbstruck audience
and addressed them once again.

~s~ . ... ~~:~ The dawning of the "Age of Sages" was marked by the
widespread use of stones in magic, to the extent that it is sometimes ealled
the "Sagely Stone Age." The wiurds of the period worked to uncover the
mysteries of stones, and uKd stone statues and tablets to store knowledge. Such
was the importance of stooes that special spells were developed in order to make
their transportation easier, and a truly wondrous stooe·based civiliution emerged.

Early stone tablets, called "memory stones," could store thoughn

City Guardians
Most of the great cities of history were built &om stone. Not only did this
providt them with sturdy walls, it also conferred magical protection upon them.
Indeed, there are many cities, towers, caves, and other locations that benefit
from such proteetion. 1bese locations are said to be guarded by "living stones."
Living stones continue to guard buildings long after humans have stopped using
them, meaning that the world is full of melancholy living stones, stoically
guarding long·abandoned cities.

[:::2he Other World :J{

Another World About Wbich Little Is Known
The world you ~e btfore you is not the only world in existence. There is
at least one more, but since only wizards who have mastered the "Gateway"
spell are able to visit it, not many people have ever been there. Some lucl:y
individuals have somehow managed to visit wi thout performing magic,
howtve r, and have even returned to tell the tale.
All of the~ people talk of the strange things they've seen--the clothes in
particular. One penon even brought bacl: a pair of spectacles that were pitch
blacl:! No one has yet ascertained what purpo~ they are suppo~d to ~rve.
Othen claim to have witnessed young men applying a strange gelatinous
substance to their hair, making their heads lool: somewhat
similar totheposteriorofacreatureoftheavesgenus.
A few apparently u~d the same substance to
make their hair stand on end, as though
they had been struck by a bolt of
lightning. These stylings would
appear to ~rrt no practical
purpose, though many
visitors observed that
coiffured men enjoyed
more attention &om their
female counterparts.
Some have also reported
seeing people who look exactly
like themselves. About twenty yean ago,
the governor of Castaway Cove wrote in his travel
journal that he'd s~n an enormous snake in the other world, puffing douds of
smoke and running along a strange metal path. Still more disconcerting was
the fact that the snake seemed to have swallowed a btllyful of people, one
of whom looked exactly lil:e the governor. 1k governor naturally assumed
he was hallucinating and concluded that he must bt ill-though he was in
fact entirely healthy, and is still going strong to this day.
Somewhere in the world, there is said to be an inaccessible landmass, one that is
shrouded in a deep fog and thick cloud. Legends claim that this land was once home
to a highly prosperous civilinrion, though such rumors have never been conlirmed.
No one actually knows how to get to the place, though some claim that the fog
clears for one day a year, allowing one to sail towards it. Others say that the
Eye of the Storm will JOmetimes cast hapless sailors upon its shores. It must be
emphasized, however, that these are only rumors. Curious wi u rds should use their
initiative and think of their own methods of clearing away the fog, rather than
relyi ng on S«<ndhand hearsay.
The Nazcaan Alphabet
Aeons ago, when d\C Nazcaan civilization was at its ~ak, the language ~ speak today ~
wrinen using a difftrtnt and considerably more ancient lenering system--om~ that has co~ to
be known as the script. A guide to its alphabet, indicating the mockm letters to which
its symbols correspond, is displayed on the opposite page.

In its most ancient form, Nau:aan did not even consist of what we would call "letters," but
comprised in11ead a dizzying variety of tripartite "glyphs." ~r, the laborious nature of their
production meant that by the time most of the renowned $agt]y writings were produced, words
were already bting rendered using individual symbols. 'These symbols were historically wriuen--
and therefore read-fimn right to left. It was not until the Middle Ages, when the loose sl~
many associate with wi:z.ardry became popular, that the practice was abandoned-much to the
dismay of washerwomen, who had been eyeing ink-stained wizards' robes as a potential goldmine.

Nazcaln script is notable for its lack of both spacts bttween words and of punctuation in gene ral.
Hot-bloodtd young wizards-in-training are often htard complaining of tht difficulty this creates
in detc:rmining whtrt words and sentencts begin and tnd, but it is generally aCi:epted that reading
Nazcaan should not prove challenging to thost with realistic sagtly ambitions. To address tht
complaint more dirtctly: tht fact that the vast majority of modtrn scripts now incorporate thest
featurts is a consequence of tht spread of literacy beyond rardied scholarly cirdes, and the
concomitant nttd to assist tht common rtackr.

More astute souls will by now h~ notittd that tht Nazcaln script dots not distinguish betwttn
lower- and upptrcast letters. In fact, it was not until tht dc:velopmtnt of tht printing press,
many ctnturies after tht fall of tht Nazcaan civilization, that such a distinction was conttivtd.
l nd«d, tht two cattgorits were: named after tht uppt r and lowtr drawtrs, or "cases," in which
the: mov'able type: was stortd--but that is a digression for an01her time.

Finally, as the accompanying guick dearly shows, the constituent lc:ttc:rs of tht Nn.caln and
modem alphabets do not corrtlate exactly. This is due to the fact that certain modc:rn leners
wtre invented long after tht Nazcaln alphabet fell &om use, while ctrtain Nazcaln letters were
ul timately tht victims of modern printing methods, which saw thtm rendered as pairs of othtr
letters. For example, our letter w is a modtrn rendering of the Nncalin double l (vv), L being
itself the ancient equivalent of both the modtrn v and u. The Na zcain lttter Q (th), meanwhile,
survives only as a sound, and is now rendered as a combination of t and h. Likewise, ~ is
nowadays rendered as a combination of c and h, and 'ti as a combination of e and i.

A novice's guide to reading tht ancient texts:

1. Find tht beginning of the passage, and start rtading &om right to left, using the guide on
tht opposite page to dtcipher tht ancient symbols.

2, Remember that tht Na:zcain script featurts no spaces, no distinction between lower- and
uppercase letters, and no punctuating marks. You will need to engage you r brain in orckr to
worl: out whtre words and stnttncts begin and end.
3· Be aware that some of our modem lttters did not exist in the Nazcailn alphabet, with j, u,
and w being represented by ~ (i), L (v), and double L (v) respectively. Remember also
that two mockm letters art sometimes represented by one ancient symbol (namtly th, ch,
