Marvin is a somewhat tall thin elf and is 12 years of age and just about to start to learn magic. Now for the real chapters... .

Chapter I

Ten years after the war between the orcs and the humans came to a close. Right after Marvin stepped into the academy he stood in awe. The walls were made of marble and the ceiling of the first floor was a dome made of gold. Marvin could hardly believe he would be living there until he was done with his training. Marvin was awoken from his thoughts when he heard a voice from behind "Beautiful isnít it?"

Marvin turned around as quickly as he could and saw none other then the head director of the academy Baron of the light, a paladin who had devoted his life to help teach others.

Marvin replied, "Yes it is."

Baron said "What do you like the most?"

Marvin asked himself what kind of question is that? But he forced out, "Uh um I guess uh the forests and uh things like that."

Baron replied in a calm voice as usual "So would you like to learn nature magic?"

Marvin stammered out, "Uh okay"Baron then stood and said, "So be it you room is 132 nature."

Marvin replied kind of nervous "I know I mean okay."


The folowing morning Marvin awoke, ate breakfast fast and hurried off to the nature classroom, where he realized he was half an hour early. Finally when class began he found that his teacher was an elf named Seroner. Marvin spent the entire morning listening to him tell his tales but Seroner did so only because it was the first day. After class Marvin went to the opening ceremony where he met Farener who was learning earth magic. They became quick friends. After one month Marvin had learned how to heal the land or thatís what they call it, it makes trees and plants wherever he castes the spell. Farener, being a far better student then Marvin, could form hills and cliffs. At class Marvin often felt like he had to get rid of some mana and just couldnít hold it in. For instence, Marvin accidentally shot some vines somewhere. Then when he looked around, he noticed everybody was staring at him. Then Marvin looked over at his teacher vines were squeezing him: So Marvin said in a worried tone, "Sorry."

Seroner just waved his finger and all the vines turned to ashes:

Then Seroner shouted, "Fool, will you tell me next time you have to get rid of some mana!!!"

Marvin cowered back and said, "Uh yea, I will."

Since then he only had around 10 similar things happen but now Marvin was just about to start his last year of school and word of the daemons coming had just arrived. Also the daemons have already destroyed Qulful'as and are heading towards Dalaron.

At the word Dalaron he jumped up. Then Marvin darted to his friend Farener's room as Farener had already gone down to the main hall. When Marvin got to Farener's room. Farener wasn't there. So Marvin went down to the main hall to see if he would have to evacuate. When Marvin got to the hall. Everyone except baron and Seroner were there. Everyone waited and waited but they didn't come.

So one of the teachers stepped up and said, "The daemons are but a days march from here. However we have a magic defense that would obliterate the enemy and protect us from their magic; there is nothing to worry about."

Chapter II Dalaron

The scourge was running through the city slowly crumpling to the ground dead once again because of the magic shield but the scourge kept coming until they destroyed the generator creating the shield. Than Marvin saw a daemon build a sand castle outside the city walls. Then he destroyed it and the entire city of Dalaron with it, turning the city to rubble in a matter of seconds. Marvin ran from the burning legion with Farener until the two got to an old wagon, which they jumped into and Farener made hills under the two all the way out of the city rolling us down, then up, then down, for a while. It was like a roller coaster ride.


Once they got out, both of them considered them lucky to have came out alive. Then they wandered around not knowing to where. 3 days past before Farener and Marvin found any trace of civilization and those traces happened to be of the ruined civilization of Qulful'as Farener made cliffs around in a circle creating a fort, whereí as Marvin made the land inside the cliffs and around them habitable, which was definitely needed because it had been blighted by the undead.

Marvin and Farener agreed to let in who ever wanted in. After another year or so they ruled over a small town surrounded by the walls of mud Farener had made. Marvin then summoned a large bird around half the size of a hippogriff and sent it to explore nearby towns. When it finally returned Marvin noticed two large wounds and the feathers around them were singed. Farener remarked that those were fire bolt wounds

Marvin said, "You there, fix the bird up now!" Pointing to a random peasant.

The peasant replied, "If you want me to."

Marvin said, with a bit of relief, "Thank you."

The peasant wrapped the wounds. Then the bird told Marvin that most of the surviving magi had joined the scourge and were heading towards Lordaron. Marvin realized that after they destroyed Lordaron they would be heading to the sea, which would lead them to their town next.

Then Marvin consulted Farener for advice. After relaying what the bird told him

Farener said, "Ah, yes, I was just noticing that, to. Look."

Marvin looked across the barren plains and saw nothing, so he said, "I donít see anything."

All Farener did was point in the same direction as Marvin had looked before.

Marvin then said, obviously very annoyed, "I see nothing...uh oh"

As he said it, he saw on the horizon at least 30 dots, which were quickly growing in size. Farener had already run off to prepare the defenses. Marvin heard a voice inside his head

"Join us."

Marvin replied barely able to speak he was so shocked "Whhat who are you?"

Marvin then saw a small daemon that is compared to the other daemons. But a daemon nevertheless that was in their lines and he was most defiantly the groupís leader. Marvin saw him mutter some thing that only Marvin could hear "I am what I am. You are weak with these mortal fools. The only way to survive is to join us. You could become one of us and become great and powerful."

Marvinís courage started coming back to him and he yelled aloud "Never, it is neither great nor honorable to fight for the daemons."

The daemon said, "So be it."

Marvin was brought back to his senses when the first line of rifles went off. The battle had begun.

Chapter III the Daemons Power

With one wave of the daemons hand, all the cliffs and natural defenses that Farener and Marvin had spent a year building collapsed in a matter of seconds. In the avalanche, around half of the human army was sucked under ground including Marvin. Since Farener knew some earth magic he shot the dirt to the side and uncovered them.

Marvin remarked, "Its a good thing we have you with us."

Farener actually laughed, then drew his sword and charged into the onslaught. Marvin picked up his staff blasted vines at the daemon. At the same time the daemon lifted his finger and some dark ray that Marvin decided was the opposite of light hit each other. Marvin was about to jump with joy because he had heard stories about things like that happening and creating strange effects. But it turned out that the daemons shot was so much more powerful it just consumed Marvin and kept going. Then everything went black. Marvin regained consciousness as the battle was coming to a close:

The daemon then telepathically said to him "Remember my offer and the consequences."

With that he flew away. The few survivors mourned the death of there comrades but the town had to evacuate before more daemons came. So the group of survivors started their journey to the sea. The group consists of 33 peasants 7 riflemen Farener and Marvin. It took 4 days travel for them to finally be able to hear the waves lap upon the beach but there was a massive mountain chain blocking their path. As the group started going up one of the mountains Marvin heard voices inside his head about totally irrelevant things Marvin felt as in if he was going mad then

He heard a voice in the background say, "Dread Lord Zenedar the assault is ready." The trans was somewhat broken and became more and more so with each word they said then Marvin then heard Zenedar scream, "You insolent fool you freed him!!!"

Then there was a loud thump, which Marvin knew was the other person or thing being slain. Zenedar tried to push him into insanity again but Marvin managed to hold it back this time because he knew what Zenedar was doing. Half way up the mountain they were forced to make camp for the night due to the harsh weather. Marvin couldn't sleep at all that night because Zenedar was trying to push him into insanity again, so he had to spend all his time fighting back insanity. A dark figure riding what looked like a horse began a journeying to Marvin and Farener's camp. Since Marvin had stayed awake he saw the figure at a distance and alerted the entire camp. By the time the figure had gotten to our camp the group was ready for combat.

The figure said "Marvin come with me, now!!!"

Marvin recognized the voice as Baron's Marvin nodded and followed. Baron led him to a stone door in the mountain that was near invisible. Marvin cautiously entered with Baron. Then Baron shut the door as fast as he could it was almost pitch black inside. Baron tossed back his hood and Marvin immediately stepped back and in terror he saw that Baron had willingly changed to the undead. I looked around in an effort to find a way out all I saw in the dark was thousands of glowing eyes and the door, which he had come in through. Baron then said, "Join us or die."

Marvin realized it was his only chance so forced every bit of power he had, which was quite a lot out of him into an enormous group of vines, which struck with deadly accuracy at everything within a hundred feet away other then it's master Marvin. Forcing the undead into retreat. Marvin fainted and stayed that way for 3 days during that time he had regained much of his mana. Right when he awoke, he left the dreaded place and continued up the mountain. Two uneventful days past before Marvin finally reached the bottom.

Chapter IV the Ankh

Marvin ran to the shores, eager to see Farener. Marvin did see him but Farener was dead. Marvin mourned his friend's death. Then it hit him like a hammer. It is said that there is an ankh of reincarnation in the dragon roost on one of the mountains. His entire group had been slain by the orcs so Marvin assumed that the orcs had been blood lusted by the daemons yet again. Then he wasted no more time and sprang up the mountain range. Marvin knew he had to get up and down with the ankh in less than 3 day or else it would be impossble to save his friend. Marvin made it up the mountain in one day. The fact that he had ran most of the way might have made the difference, so right as he reached he top he collapsed into sleep.

Marvin awoke to someone shaking him. He noticed it was Seroner his previous teacher who said "What brings you hear my friend?"

Marvin replied, "Farener has been slain along with almost 40 others. I have come to get the ankh and bring it back to him."

Seroner said, "You're not really going into the roost, are you?"

Marvin simply nodded and started walking to the roost while his teacher sighed and waited to see if Marvin would return alive. Marvin ran all the way to the roost. He saw it was abandoned for the moment, so he searched for the ankh while he could. Right before Marvin gave up, he saw the dragon coming and at the same time he saw the dragon, he saw the ankh. Marvin hastily picked up the Ankh of Reincarnation and started building a wall of trees with his spells in order to block the dragonís path. The dragon burned and burned until he noticed he couldn't get through and left. Once the fire burned down, Marvin ran down the slope with Seroner until they reached Farener's body and placed the ankh in his hands. They watched as life flowed back into Farener:

who said disappointedly "Aww rats!"

Marvin said, "What!"

Farener said, "Why did you wake me up? It was fun up there."

Then Seroner said, "Come on."

The trio started to build a boat, with which they could sail to Kalimdor. The whole time they were building the boat Farener was talking about how fun it was in Heaven and Marvin was thinking how he had been toiling to get the ankh and let Farener live again. Lets just say it got on Marvinís nerves. After the boat was finished, they set off. Luckily Seroner knew how to make a flood, so he propelled the boat that way. Both Marvin and Farener were relieved that, they didn't have to paddle or anything like that so Farener and Marvin spent 2 entire month voyage learning new spells from Seroner.

Chapter V the Voyage Kalimdor

Seroner yelled, at the top of his voice, "We are caught in the maelstrom." But of course Marvin and farener already knew that they were hard at work building barricades with their spells. The waves were enormous around 50 feet in height the ship was tossed around like a juggled ball. Eventually the ship sunk. Marvin made an enormous tree under them and they were only getting hit with the tips of the waves until the tree broke and they plunged into the might depths. Farener created a stone shell around him blocking all the water from getting in. Marvin made a nature seal holding out the water and allowing only air. And Seroner froze the water around him and slowly glides down. They meet at the bottom where there was a large hole. They went down through the hole and then up into an air pocket. The cavern was incredibly large Seroner was sure that only the dwarves could build anything like this:

So he yelled, "greetings"

The sound echoed on for what seemed like an hour. Then a horde of goblins approached Marvin Seroner and Farener. Farener realized that his powers were much better in the caverns because his hills are as high as the low ceilings so he blasted a hill which rolled on and on it swallowed all those who weren't able to get away then he shot the hills into every tunnel he saw. Until finally the trio reached the throne room on the throne stood a goblin much larger and older than all the others

He said, "My name is Marglin. And what might be yours?"

Seroner stepped up and said, "I am Seroner, and over there is Marvin and over there the one with his back turned to you is Farener."

Marglim said, " What brings you here we havenít had a visitor since the maelstrom began." This time Marvin relayed the story of how the maelstrom forced them to come. Then he said, "We wish only to leave. But we can't with out your help."

Marglin chuckled "Of course you can that is if you have anything you can give us for a submarine? You also get a free driver. What do you say?"

Farener said, in anger, "We have nothing left because of that blasted..."

Then he was cut off by Marvin, "Donít forget we have spells. Here is my offer Farener will strengthen your walls with his spells and Seroner and I will create seal blocking water and only water in you entrance. To you cavern."

Marglin was in a state of happiness and said "A noble offer. I except it come with me. We have spent years draining water after a floods it is what we need most."

The trio split up doing their part of the deal when they finished they were granted the goblins best submarine. Then the set of Kalimdor at many times their pervious speed therefore they landed in only another month other wise they wouldnít have reached Kalmodor for another year or more.

Chapter VI Kalimdor

The goblin handed each of them walkey talkies and said to call him if they ever needed him. With that the trio set foot in Kalimdor they searched for civilization in order to warn them of the coming war all they saw was trees and more trees. When they set camp Marvin leaned against a tree to sleep

Then he heard "Long day?"

Then Marvin looked around confused then said, "Yes who are you?"

It responded "An ancient of lore."

Marvin bolted up and said "The daemons are coming from Azaroth so we were forced to flea they have taken Azaroth and will try to take the world to." The ancient said "My you are wordy young elf you have gone deep into our territory and yet you didn't even notice we were more then just trees until now. I will tell them right away"

A dryad sprang out of the ancient of lore and ran to the largest tree. Then the tree of lore said "Come in we will se if your worthy to be trained in nature magic."

Marvin replied proudly "I already have leant much nature magic in Dalaron."

The ancient smiled and said "Come in come in you can always learn more."

When Farener and Seroner awoke they were in the tree and they saw the tree teaching Marvin.

Farener muttered, "Where are we?"

The ancient said "In me and your around the same area as you were before. Here are your breakfasts."

They each got a glass of the most peculiar water and a cooked rabbit leg. Not surprisingly the ancient asked Marvin cast heal the land on it a lot but Marvin didn't mind because he was being taught new spells often but these were battle spells which he wanted most for instance he learnt how to heal living creachers cast dispel and inner fire. He practiced until the daemon arrived by then Marvin could even resurrect others although that was a slow process.

Chapter VII The Elves

Maclar is a night elf with black hair. He is very muscular, and tall. A daemon hunter handed Maclar two shiny moon blades

and said, "Good luck, you are one of us now... oh yes I almost forgot." He led Maclar into a dark eerie chamber. The daemon hunter picked up a spiritual dagger and started to walk over to Maclar.

Who said, "What are you doing?"

The daemon hunter responded, "A ritual."

Maclar said, "What kind of rit ow!..ow!"

All of a sudden, he could see better then ever even in the dark.

The daemon hunter said, "There, now you are one of us."

He then placed a blindfold over Maclar's eyes. The blindfold didn't affect his vishion at all. Later he noticed he didn't have eyes but he said to himself I donít need them anymore anyway.

There was a loud howl signaling for all the soldiers to report to the Ancient of War. Marvin rushed over and awoke Seroner and Farener. Then he ran with them to the Ancient of War. The entire night elf army waited for what seemed like an eternity but what really was just an hour. Without warning, tens of thousands of walking dead bolted out of the forest. Farener and Marvin teamed up. Marvin made vines that bolted the enemies to the ground while Farener made hills under them crushing the creatures bettwen the ground and the vines. The night elves struck with lightning-quick reflexes while the enormous cats they rode on fought with bitter ferocity. The lines upon lines of the scourge crumpled to the ground and turned to piles upon piles of bones. The night Elves cheered at their victory. But the victory was short-lived: enemy mages walked into the battlefield and all the dead undead and night elves rose into scelintons controled by the necromansers and the battle began once again. Marvindispelled most of the but them. Then humans' sworn enemy, the orcs, flooded in and slued night elf and undead alike in their bloodlust. They devoured line after line of the night elves until they reached the night elf spell casters. Where Farener made a tower-like stone structure rise up from the ground. The orcs looked stunned but just for a second, they charged the spell casters then all of a sudden the tower collapsed and the entire orc army was buried alive.

Soon after the daemons them selves charged the night elves it is then that 10 daemon hunters blasted out of the forest they slew two daemons. Then they changed into daemons them selves and fought daemon after daemon until both groups had perished only one daemon remained: he was Arcimoned.

All the casters on both sides ran from him. He pursued until Marvin created vines, which held Arcimoned in place until they got away. His necromancers began raising a new army out of all the corpses.

C Chapter IIX Fight and Flight

On Azeroth

Dorum mumbled, "Why me? Out of all the dwarfs griffin rider captains why me?"

He knew the answer. It was because he was captain of the last squad left in Azeroth. He was on the scout and destroy mission where all the other squads disappeared. Dorum was young. He had a short beard and wore mithril armor. His hammers had a blue glow around them. Dorum and his group had been supplied with the top of the line griffins, so they made good time. After a week they reached the northern lands when they looked down they saw there was no snow any more just blight and more blight. The mountains had been collapsed, and all they saw was blight and a portal. They entered the portal and appeared in a strange world. It was just endless red ground red hills red mountains every thing in sight was red. The planets sun was many times that of their home worlds sun. It blazed an eerie red the planet as hot as in if it was hell it self.

Dorum said, "Where are we? I say we turn back."

Dorum's second in command, Nain, said "We can't the portal closed behind us when Chen accidentally hit it with a hammer."

Dorum said, in a state of anger, "What!!! Darn Chen!!!"

Chen said, trying to save his reputation as well as his neck, "Sir it's not my fault my pack was on loosely."

Dorum's anger increased and he screamed, "Off with his head!"<> Nobody responded so Dorum himself lifted his hammer and right before he struck he heard screams, so he turned around and ordered his men to go towards the screams. Chen was luckily the screams had occurred right before Dorum had smashed him dead.<> When they got to the source of the screams, the entire of Dorum's battalion blasted hammer after hammer at the daemon townís folk who fell to the ground as in if they were mere mortals. The screams happened to be the previous group being tortured in a stadium so the griffon riders flew into rage. They freed the other battalions. Then four daemon guards jumped out of nowhere and blasted a hail of fire. The surviving griffon riders and griffons were forced to retreat.

Chapter IX Resurrection

Marvin walked over to the slain daemon hunters and started bringing life back to one of them Maclar awoke from what seemed like it would be everlasting sleep. Around an hour later he found the strength to sit up. He then noticed an eleven priest ever so slowly pushing live into him. He recognized the priest as Marvin. Maclar then looked around at the carnage. The battle had created. There were hills upon hills of the dead. Maclar said, "One daemon still lives. I can feel it in my bones."

Marvin replied, "That is true. They are heading to the World Tree and if we don't go now we might not get to the there first."

Maclar replied in an ambitious tone, "Let's go."

So the two set off. Farener and Seroner had been separated from Marvin when they fled from Arcimoned. As the daemons army approached the World Tree Arcimoned was as eager as he could be, until out of nowhere a human army ambushed Arcimoned and his army. Oris, the human general, shouted commands as if he never stopped. Eventually Arcimoned was the only one left.

He yelled, "You thought you could defeat me, ha Iíll show you."

At that same moment, Maclar and Marvin burst out of the forest just in time to see him teleport away after saying the words Dea mono plano. Marvin repeated the words and all of a sudden he was in a daemon city. He tried to escape but the four daemon guards drew their swords and charged at him. Marvin pulled out his own sword but instead of hitting them with it he blasted gigantic red rays at the daemons. Who stepped back in utter shock and pain. Once they came back to their senses Marvin was gone and they had to explain this to their master.

Marvin accidentally stumbled upon the dwarf encampment. The dwarves were more than happy to have Marvin with them and were more so after they heard his tale. Marvin sent an endless number of small birds, which he summoned, from his world and they slowly brought more and more news about the world. Marvin soon had made a vague map of the daemons home world. A few birds reported seeing humans in the daemons' home world. So the dwarves' army went with Marvin to check it out.

Chapter X Counter Strike

In the Human Army Commanded by Oris

Oris wore a golden cape that shined like the sun on this forbidden planet along with his crimson colored armor. Forced fear into any creatureís heart even into the daemons'. His soldiers feared him more then they did the daemons for they had seen hundreds slued by his blade, which shone like a new moon. He had told his men that if they ran away from battle without his permission, he would hunt them down and give them the most painful death they could imagine and in many cases more painful. The human ranks started to falter. A footman ran up to him with a large gash on his side and said, "Sir, this is a futile attempt. We would need a miracle to change the tide. We must pull back."

Oris then said comely, "Never will I run from battle."

Just then a horde of flying beasts flew over the field.

Oris screamed "Oh crap, pull back men!"

After those words were spoken the flying beasts blasted hundreds of storm hammers at the daemons.

Oris, realizing his mistake, yelled, "What are you running from? Charge!"

The griffon riders launched countless rounds of hammers but they just couldnít defeat all the daemons alone they would still needed a miracal to win. Marvin cast inner fire and healed hundreds of warriors. Oris felt the fire inside him and rammed through the enemy lines, hardly noticing the numerous wounds he took. Which made him more and more feared by the daemon hordes but finally he collapsed, dead, yet still feared even in death. Marvin sprang forth as fast as the eye could see. Once he reached Oris's body he canted something, then yelled, "Take this, you daemons!" Oris's body began to rise. Then whirled around slicing daemon after daemon. As in if he had never fallen. The wounds he took were gone seconds after he took them because Marvin was hard at work healing him. The daemons fled in terror because it is one thing to have a mere mortal hack through their lines with ease and itís another thing to also resurrect and then hack through their lines once again.

Oris stood trying to remember how his strength came back and each blow he took healed as good as new. His armor was broken all over-almost to damaged to ware. Bent steel pierced his flesh, but he decided to use the armor anyway because just the thought of how many shot he had taken would make any one and anything shiver at the thought of facing him. His soldiers feared him more then death it self and followed him to anywhere at any pace for any reason no questions asked. Soon Oris found out the only reason he had survived the battle and was resurrected was because of Marvin.

So he walked up to Marvin and said, "You saved me and now I intended to pay you back" Marvin shook his head "No, the best way to do so is to fight on and destroy the daemons' threat once and for all."

Oris replied, "We would have done that any way. We should at least give you something." Marvin said with determination "No, that would waste too much time we already are. We must continue on I will be with you always in life and death." he said while fumbling around with an ankh of reincarnation. Oris replyed, "If that is your wish." Then he turned around and left to organize the army. Marvin's attention turned back to the ankh And Marvin said, "You had better work Old Buddy. Or else... Or else you will...Rats I cant do anything while Iím dead! I know Iíll tell others to destroy you." A captain came up to Oris nervously as in if a false word would mean his death which it would so he said each word slowly and carefully "Sir...News...there are orcs... coming this way, sir" Oris turned and yelled to everyone "Soon we will get to slay thousands upon thousands of orcs! Wonít that be an honor!" Cheers rose from the army, and as quickly as they began they stopped because Oris began to speak again "It appears that the daemons are to scared to fight us by themselves. They had to call upon their weak servants, the orcs. We will show them that every and anything they throw at us will die or be destroyed. Be it the scourge be it the orcs or be it themselves. We will win! And fight fire with fire." Once again cheers and applauses broke loose.

Chapter XI Supplies

Helron is a little on the tall side, he has a short brown beard, He is also pretty bulkey, with arms that could tear a goblin in half sorta. The supply man Helron (He is the one in charge of the armies supplies) who had something strange about him today. He walked up to Oris and gave him the supplies report. Helron then he speed off at a surprising speed. Oris chased him knocking him down on the hard, desolate, dry, ground. Oris said, forcefully, "Thought you could get away? Well not while Iím around."

Helron merely grumbled as in is he didn't know that Oris was the armies general. However that is another matter. Helron believed that he could kill Oris and that his time would come sooner or later.

Oris said to him, "Well you aren't going a where until I find out what it says besides you might have to answer some qustions. You wouldn't want to miss those." Oris snickered Helron nodded and replied, "Who in this great world are you." <> Oris nearly fell off him laughing. But then he realized that Helron could be a spy so he desided to test him.

Oris looked at the report and on it said there was not a thing left in the stores. Oris screamed, "I thought your report yesterday said that we would have enough rations for 2 weeks!"

The Helron Replied, "I give reports every day?"

Oris replied sternly, "Of course. How did the supplys get lost?"

Helron replied, as in if he had memorized the line over and over again, "A strange red dog like creature with horns. It knocked me over and all of a sudden... I... I felt as in if it had cursed me I couldn't move for a few seconeds... Sir."

Oris urged him to continue, "Then?"

Helron continued, "Then it burst into the stores and started destroying everything. Then I got to my feet... It is then that a seconded one jumped on me and pinned me down. Uh then a captain fended them off."

Oris replied, "Bring the captain to me."

Helron headed over to the captain Bardens tent and soon came back to Oris The Helron came back to Oris and said, "He is asleep. Should I leave him a message or something?" Oris responded with "You daemon!!! You robber!!! It must have been you. I out smarted you ha." At the same time Oris blasted a sword stroke at Helron's head beheading him in an instant. Marvin walked up sickened by the blood shed and said, "How did this happen?" Oris replied, "He was more cursed then the devil himself." Marvin said, in a half mumble, "Of course we all know why." Oris's curiosity got the better of him and asked "Why?" Marvin sighed and began speaking, "I am sorry I forgot you had no skills in magic. There is a hellish beast it is called helldeath but only one of those beasts of hell survived from a world unknown to mankind. So the daemons caught it and bread it with a hound. They then called them fell hounds. As with the daemon warriors they only use the most powerful Fell hounds in battle. They know where we are. They will come be it hours or be it weeks." Oris commanded his men to search Helron's tent. In, which they found all the supplies a lot of the equipment had already been dismantled and flung into the tent corners. They were however able to salvage most of the supplies. Helrons soul hissed, to Oris, "I will return my time is yet to come. Next time I will win and. You will die. It is yet to come. Yet to come." Oris shuddered not knowing, which of his men or enemies would be Helron. All of a sudden Oris felt a powerful force pushing him out of his body but he struggled all night long until it finally gave up on him. Oris had defeated Helron once again due to Oris being more powerful then he. He vowed that he would be the one defeating Oris in the end.

Chapter XII Forest

Marvin approached Oris and said, "Oris, my spies tell me that..."

He was cut off by Oris, "Spies? You have spies?"

Marvin replied, "Of course, I wouldn't be a wizard without my information."

Marvin spoke, "Well, they say that there is a forest not ten miles from here."

Oris said, eager to hear what had aroused the young mages attention about the forest, "And?"

Marvin continued, "The forests would provide a tremendous strategic position."

Oris replied, "How, and why?"

Marvin said proudly, "I can turn the forest against them. Trust me."

Oris replied, "If you say so, but who are your spies?"

Marvin pointed up to the sky and said, "The birds, I summoned them."

Oris said, "Ah, I'll go tell the army. We leave tonight."

Marvin replied quickly, "I have something you might want to see. Come with me."

Marvin led Oris to his tent and ushered him in. Inside Oris saw a map of the daemonís planet. Oris started by saying, "How? How did you do it?"

Marvin replied, "My spies. Itís not perfect yet, though."

Marvin noticed Oris still hadn't budged so he said, harshly, "Take it-we donít have time to chit chat."

Oris snatched up the map and the army of dwarfs and men alike marched to the forest. The troop began to believe they would never reach the end of the red plains. They called the daemons home planet Big Red. The forest was the lushest place they had ever seen. The trees were but inches apart and their leaves were dark green; the ground was soft blue and in the center was a well that slowly but surly gave off magical energies, more then quadrupling the magical powers of all those spell casters in the area. Marvin would have exploded he had so much mana if he hadn't been using so much mana taking control of all the trees. Finally the war drums sounded and tens of thousands of Orcs charged into the dense forest.

The human army waited in the center of the forest circling the well where there was a small clearing. The orcish hordes slowly closed in on them, surrounding the human forces but little did the orcs know they were the ones surrounded in every direction. Then without warning the Orcs charged, fueled by their blood lust, into the human army and as they did, the forest itself became alive and smashed the Orcs with their gigantic limbs. The Orcs also faced a threat from above, griffin riders. Every single orc was sandwiched by the air the forest and the humans. The orcs hardly killed a single soldier because if an orc were to turn around he would be stabbed from behind and if the orc stood his ground and fought the humans the trees would smash him dead with a tree limb. The battle ended just minutes after it began. And Oris began to believe that Marvinís power was beyond compare even to that of the strongest daemons. From then on Oris consulted Marvin whenever he could, before deciding on things.

Marvin decided to speak to Oris about he next move, "Oris, my friend, we must go to the world city and destroy it. We can't hold off an infinite number of attacks."

Oris pulled out the map and started searching for the city.

Marvin then said, "It over there." pointing to the city on the map.

Oris stepped back and said, "It's that big?"

Marvin replied, while nodding at the same time "Yes it is."

Oris then said, "Are you sure we can do this?"

Marvin replied, still nodding, "We have to."

Oris replied, "Is it like the world tree?"

Marvin was still nodding so Oris said, "How will we get back?"

Marvin stopped nodding and said, "I will teleport us back. I have got it all planned out. There is no need to worry."

Oris said, "Alright, you win. We will go."

Oris then walked up to the army and said, "We will be going to the daemons capital city, and everyone find a nice camouflaged hiding spot in a tree. We start moving tonight and we will go, day and night, until we reach the capital. That should give you far enough time to rest. Any questions?"

A soldier with only one leg spoke up, "What about me how can I go that far?"

Marvin healed the leg as good as new then said, "You won't have to. Now find the tree you want to ride in."

All the menís morale was raised because at first they thought they would have to walk so they all found the best trees they could and prepared for their up coming ride.

Chapter XIII The Altar

The armies of dwarves, men, and trees alike closed in the gap between their targets an themselves. No doubt the daemons thought they had to win for all they could see was a few lines of griffin riders. The army of men, dwarves, and trees approached the gates with victory in their eyes. They braced themselves for their final battle on this accursed world. The wind began to pick up almost to that of a hurricane, rain poured like it never had on earth. Mist glided along the ground so thick that the ground vanished from sight. Although it was night it was still brighter then during the day on earth, due to a constant flow of crackling lightning. Burning fear into even the proudest warriors. The griffin riders were forced to walk their griffins due to the high risk of lighting striking them. A light fog prevented them from seeing the biggest city on the face of the universe looming ahead. No moon shone and not a star twinkled through the fog on that fateful night. Not a word was spoken and not a sound was made other then the ground crunching under the trees roots and the rain that struck like never before. The wall slowly came into view. Dark shadowy figures were sighted on the wall as well. The gate burned like fire, which made them feel less than welcome. Even Marvin and Oris trembled with fear. The closer they got the more their fears grew and the same held true for their men. Everyone was so engaged in their fears they literally ran into the wall. And the gate burst open so as to allow the daemon hoards to destroy the feeble dwarfs. Right when the daemons reached the dwarfís griffin riders, the humans pounced upon the daemons. But the daemons were stronger and less scared then the humans and dwarves therefore they quickly gained the upper hand. Oris clutched Marvinís shoulder and said, "Now is our chance young lad, lets go." Marvin nodded and they left their kin to their fate. Marvin and Oris snuck past the demonic warriors and raced into the nearest building. The daemon villager, which was inside, tried to flee but was cut down in an instant by Oris. Marvin noticed a scroll so of course he picked it up. It said,

"He who is to use this scroll shall be taken to the nearest friendly town along with up to 24 others."

Marvin snickered to himself, "Just what I needed."

Oris replied, "What?"

Marvin responded, "Uh, nothing."

Oris then said, "Oh well. Look over there see the alter?"

Marvin looked then he realized that is where we can defeat this threat forever. That is where we are going.

Oris broke his thoughts by saying, "Are you okay?"

Marvin nodded and replied, "We must hurry! Come!"

They sprinted to the altar.

Once they got there Marvin said, "Um, do you have any Idea how we use this thing?"

Oris replied, "Nope, do you?"

Marvin responded, "Of course not. Here, let me try something."

Marvin strode to the center of the altar and said in the strongest tone he could muster, "It is I, Marvin of Dalaron, and I order this world to disappear to whence came." The pillars turned fiery red and spoke, "Prove thyself worthy."

The fire sprang out of the pillars, creating an invincible shield around the altar and pushed Oris out. A daemon came forth and approached Marvin.

The daemon was more powerful and older then anything Marvin had ever seen. Marvin also suspected that the daemon was also wiser then even he.

The daemon asked, "Will you fight me to control this world? Do you accept my challenge?" Marvin replied, "Of course it should be easy." So as to make the daemon think he was incredibly powerful and confident. Upon closer inspection, Marvin realized that the daemon that stood in front of him was the controller of all dark magic and Marvin knew he had no name. Marvin heard the screams of his fellow men faltering against the daemons at the gate. Marvin risked a glance at Oris and all he saw was Oris's body lying dead. He saw another thing too: daemons beating themselves against the invisible shield trying to get in to kill him.

Marvin turned to the nameless daemon and said, "Is this all I am to you, entertainment?"

The daemon replied, "Actually, yes, I have been rather bored being stuck in this altar."

Marvin grumbled, "Iím flattered." then said, "Well, taste this."

Marvin blasted a glowing green ray that would slay any mortal. It merely bounced off the daemon and came at him.

Chapter XIV The Duel

Marvin sidestepped but his left arm was still caught by the powerful ray and instantly burned into nothingness. The nameless Daemon chanted a little, creating a strange pink glow in his hands, it circled around Marvin, creating a strange pink shell, which slowly closed in on him. He yelped in pain but to no avail his skin began to disintegrate. He tried desperately to heal him self and he only barely succeded.

His hair dripped his own blood and the skyís water. Fueled by rage, Marvin leapt at the daemon who was slightly stunned by the latest turn of events. Marvin stabbed again and again. When the dagger had just pierced the daemons skin, the daemon knocked him off in rage.

The daemon screamed, "Alright, maybe you're not so fun after all; you die now!"

Every type of dark magic was unleashed upon Marvin. Wind, snow, hail, fire, water, and pain. When the daemon finished, he was astonished at the fact that Marvin hadn't been killed by such a force.

So the Nameless daemon said in a surprised voice, "What! How? Why arenít you dead? I killed you!"

Marvin replied laughing, "You accidentally cast antimagic on me."

The nameless daemon replied, "Then I shall kill you with my sword!"

Marvin and the daemon drew their swords. They circled to find a weakness. The nameless daemon was the first to find one, when they clashed swords, Marvinís sword, was blasted out of his hands due to the sheer might of the nameless daemon, who then swung a final blow. But Marvin was faster and blocked with both his daggers combined.

Marvin was blown through the air due to the enormous might of the blade and the daemon. He hit the ground moments later. However he looked up just in time to see the daemons blade dive down at him. He nimbly dove away but his leg was still caught and lost. He stood up using his staff to support him for he only had one leg. He awaited his death, knowing there was nothing more he could do. Marvin made no attempt to dodge when the blade once again came down.

The nameless daemon roared, "I'm not fished with you yet. You must suffer more." So he redirected his strike at Marvinís leg. The aim was true and therefore it broke Marvin's leg and staff with ease. Marvin fell prostate on the ground when he felt another sharp pain, which he knew was his arm being damaged. Marvin rolled over and said with blood foaming in his open mouth , "I will kill you... I will kill you." He then died Marvin awoke by his ankh of reincarnation with new limbs and refreshed courage. Marvin barked out at the astonished Daemon, "Until we meet again." With that, Marvin vanished entirely. And the daemon was sucked back into the altar to guard it.

Part II The Passing

Chapter I Where Am I?

Marvin had teleported away but to where? He had made sure to bring Oris's limp body with him for resurrection but where were they? Marvin was barely able to bring Oris back to life because there was a lot less mana on this world then on the other two he had been to. The land was tropical and it had a whole lot of marshy land, at least where they were. Oris and Marvin walked together in search of food.

They found out that they had teleported into a small garden so they only had to go a short distance before they saw a village. The inhabitants were brown and around the height of a human but they were nearly three times as wide and much more muscular and hardy than humans. The ones who were the villagers, wore animal skin around their waist down to their knees. The warriors had green reptile skin around their entire body except their face, the skin was probably sopposed to be armor. They also had the most unusual weapons: They threw little spiked balls instead of arrows and their sword-like things were really double-sided green see-through daggers. Most likely used so that itís hard to see it coming.

A voice from behind them said, in a voice that resembled an Ogre's, "Who you?"

Marvin and Oris bounded back, only to notice it was one of the creatures they had been watching earlier.

Oris was the first to recover after realizing it was only one of the peasants.

He said, "We are humans. What on Azeroth are you?"

The peasant replied, "They call us peasants. Margul and the soldiers are called Margulars. What is Azeroth?"

Marvin recovered from his shock when he remembered that the teleportation scroll said that it takes you to the nearest friendly city, which means that even if they arenít on earth they are still on a friendly planet. So he said, "Never mind. We are starved. Do you have any food you might be able to share?"

The Margul replied, "Yes, yes, we have much. Come with me."

Marvin and Oris followed but they were many times slower than the Morguls so the peasant leading them kept telling them, "You people slow. Make yourself faster." While smashing his foot against the ground impatiently, eventually they made it to the capital where they entered.

Almost everyone was staring at the Marvin and Oris. Therefore Oris lost his temper and shouted, "What are you looking at?"

It actually made a big difference: now everyone was staring at them insted of most of them.

Marvin said jokingly, "My, you are good at giving orders."

Oris grumbled, "Oh, shut up."

They were then dragged over to the throne room, because they were so slow. The room had a huge table in the middle where they were given food. The throne room was strange: the roof was the same see-through material as the Morgulars swords but the walls looked similar to bamboo.

To no surprise Marvin and Oris were asked a lot of questions, such as, "How you get here human?"

Marvin replied, "It's a long story."

Then one of the other Morguls at the table, most likely a prince, said, "Oh, goody! I love long stories."

So Marvin and Oris took turns telling their story and eating. The food looked totally disgusting. They could tell it was part of some sort of raw reptile but it tasted fine. However their appetites were not happy at all. Once Oris and Marvin finished telling their tale, they were escorted to a room that the Morgular called a bedroom even though all there was to sleep on was the ground. They went to sleep after a joke by Oris, "No wonder they are brown."

One of the Morgulars opened the door, awakening Marvin and Oris in the middle of the night. He then said, "I am chosen to be your guide."

Marvin said in a drowsy voice, "Good. Can we go back to sleep?"

The Morgular replied, "If you want to get caught. Some strange big things are threatening to attack the town if we donít hand you two over. So we are trying to get you away from here so we can avoid war. Here are a few spike balls and your double-sided swords. We must hurry."

The spike balls and daggers were extremely light yet hard and deadly. The Morgular picked Marvin and Oris up over his shoulder and started running when he remembered how slow they were. Upon first sight Marvin and Oris noticed that the ones who wanted them were daemons. However daemons are not so easily fooled. They charged into the city and chased Oris,Marvin and their guide. Hundreds of fell hounds (They are pretty much red lions with horns.), and Hellish Death (Two headed red lion with horns.) teleported into the town and chased the trio. Marvin and Oris threw the metal balls too slow the fell hounds; when each of the spiked ball hit any thing they blew up into hundreds of small needle-like spikes, causing extreme amounts of damage and often stunning the fell hounds. They soon lost the fell hounds but Hellish Death and a half-visible rider, Helron, started catching up with Marvin, Oris and their guide realizing that they couldn't escape this one, they got ready for combat. Helron rode up to them and said to Oris, "So we meet again except with me the victor this time."

Oris snarled, "We shall see about that."

Helron charged in on Hellish Death who was like a two-headed red lion with horns. Across the green plains. Within seconds, the trio was engaged in combat with Helron and Hellish Death. Marvin and their guide struggled against Hellish Death while Oris dueled Helron. The skin of Hellish Death was harder than armor so Marvin could barley even scratch Hellish Death but his guide could cut it as well as a human could do to a lion Helron jumped on the guide from behind and cut him across the back many times until the guide fell into unconsciousness. Marvin sprang aside with the agility of an elf as Hellish death swung his deadly claws at him. While Marvin was moving, Hellish death swung his other paw, sandwiching Marvin. Marvin was swung at a tree, still attached to Hellish Death's claws. His life flashed before his eyes: he saw every event that happened, even things he had forgotten, such as a few spells... He took control of the tree and had it swerve to the side. Marvin detached from the claws due to the speed of the swing and flew into the forest. He blocked the blow by casting a spell, creating a pond where he fell.

Hellish Death pounced on him eager for the kill. Marvin felt his ribs snap one by one he flattened under the shear weight of Hellish Death. Green spotted Marvinís vision and his breath did not come out at all. All of a sudden both of the foul creatures' heads were chopped off with a stroke of Oris's new double-sided sword blood spilled every where. Oris said, "Are you okay... I guess not."

More spots appeared in Marvin's vision and they became black. Then he saw nothing. Marvin awoke later with his entire body in as much pain as one can feel. His breath was labored but he was alive. The room was similar to the throne room except a little smaller this time. He had a nice, comfortable bed though.

Oris was there and he said, "Do not strain yourself. You are lucky Kalum had brought healing herbs with him."

Marvin tried to respond but he couldn't through all his pain.

Chapter II Recovery

After three days Marvin had healed enough to walk around and speak. He found that he had been taken to another one of the Morgul's villages to recover. Oris who was sitting next to Marvins bed asked, "Are you sure you're well enough to walk?" Marvin replied, "Of course, you know nothing about healing, I know a lot." Oris said in a hopeful voice, "Why don't you go get some rest? You see, they said that we have to leave once youíre able to walk." Just then Kalum walked in, "Ah I see he is walking once again. If I could, I would let you stay longer, but I can't." Oris quickly explained that Kalum was the guideís name. Marvin noticed that Kalum was wearing armor made of the see-through material. Oris, trying to explain noticing the inquisitive look on Marvinís face, "You see, I told them of a lot of the human technology, so the Morgulars started using armor instead of their reptile skin." Marvin nodded, "Where are we to go, Kalum?" Kalum explained, slightly embarrassed, "I do not know. All my orders were to keep you guys out of the cities so that the daemons don't attack them." They were led to the armory where they choose their weapons. Oris chose a black suit of armor and leg armor. He chose red gantlets and a black helmet with a few red stripes. For his weapon, he chose a red sword. Whereas Marvin chose two layers of blue chain mail with a brown padding on the outside he also wore blue chain mail gantlets. His weapon was a staff, which could be changed into a spear in an instant. He chose it because it could channel magical energies extremely well. Marvin also took a few spike balls and two daggers. Once they were finished, Kalum picked them up and took them out side the castle gates. Kalum said, "Do not ever enter a Morgul city unless in need." Marvin and Oris nodded. Then trio set off into the forest to where they knew not. Kalum told them a tale. The tale was that of a great orb, "The daemons had pounded at the planets defenses until the defenses could hold them back no longer, the daemons poured forth onto the world intent on its destruction. The great mage Karbred sacrificed his life in order to save all others on this world. Creating the orb. When the orb was made, it sucked almost all the magic in the planet into the orb. The orb could not be used again to defeat the daemons, at least directly. It is said that in time of need someone will destroy the orb and it would release the magic back into the world." Then there was a verse made by Karbred right before he sacrificed himself.

I, Karbred, have come for a purpose

I have been created for this day

I have come many times in the past

I have fallen many times in the past

I am now here to save thy people

I am now here to save thy county

I am now here to save thy world

I am now here to go

I am now to give thy last life

Never to come again

Never to set thy foot upon land

Never to set thy foot in the waters

I am but to save my people

I am but to defeat the daemons

I am giving thy life for thy people

I die not in vain

Kalum said, "It is said that his words were heard by every living creature, no matter how small, no matter how large. It is said that the orb lies in the Timatron Mountain. They are to the east of here."

Marvin replied, "I believe we should go there. Even if our chances of finding it are slim."

Oris said cheerfully, "I believe we should, too. Its the least we can do for this world." Kalum smiled inwardly it was exactly what he was hoping to accomplish. They started their arduous trek to the Timatron Mountain. In 6 days journey they had reached the edge of the forest. They saw a desert with thousands upon thousands of crystal clear pools of water. Kalum warned them, "No one who ever stepped into these waters has come out alive. Do not trust them no matter how welcoming they may be. I heard that there is some creature or creatures in the waters. Some say they are the souls of the daemons who perished due to Karbredís orb. Often, when someone walks to close, it is said that something springs out of the water. Even entire armies perish." Marvin nodded, and Oris asked, "So can I go swimming or not?" Kalum put his head in his hands and replied, "You humans are totally ignorant." Oris said. While getting ready to dive in with his full suit of armor, "Did you say something?" Kalum responded, "No, you can't jump in. In fact..."

He was cut off by a roaring wave. A daemon surfaced. He threw a net of fire at them and pulled them under water. The water seamed to not affect the fire net whatsoever. Kalum and Oris slashed wildly at the net but to no avail. The net simply parted for a split seconded. Then it bounced back in place. Once halfway down, the daemon stopped and waited for them to drown. Marvin tried to make the water seal around them, but with the low amount of mana, he failed. He then changed his staff into a spear and hurled it down at the daemon. The daemon pulled the spear free and tossed it to the side. Kalum slowly ran out of breath and fell unconscious. His sword tumbled down and impaled the daemon, which yelped in pain and let go of the net. Marvin shot a glance at Oris who had also fallen unconscious. Then he looked up and saw air just 5 feet up. Finally his hand broke through the curtain of water. He then hurled Kalum and Oris onto land and started pushing the water out of them. The daemon swore that he would make sure Marvin dies if itís the last thing he does.

Chapter III The Sands of Time

Oris and Kalum awoke from unconsciousness the following morning. After a quick breakfast consisting of grubs, roots, leaves and whatever else edible enough to eat, they continued their journey. After a league or two they reached a desert. All the eye could see was sand-miles and miles of the burning sand. The sun offered nothing other than powerful heat, ripping at their eyes and their very souls. Oris's mind was in a trance, fixed on reaching the end of the desert as soon as possible. It is not only this that troubled his mind: he sensed a great power in the deserts, somehow he felt there was an ambush waiting to strike down the path. His hand instinctively reached down to his sword. They walked on and on but he felt no such ambush, only the burning flame of the sand below and the sun above. He dreamt of his childhood as he walked along. Oris still remembered what it was like from age fifteen on. His family had been made slaves and he toiled relentlessly not in the fields, the house nor the garden but in making plans of escape for he was to young to have to start working. He taught himself to kill, which he did well. He taught himself to weild a blade, using whatever he could get his dirty hands on. However his friend told on him after being offered an extra ration for helping catch any one. (Food was very scarce.) And Oris had been hulled off into a tiny building, to small to even lie down. He was to be hanged the very next day as a reminder to all the other slaves. He remembered how he had yanked brutally at the boards in the walls as his fingers dripped with blood in a vain effort to escape. In the morning two armed guards opened the door and found Oris and a puddle of blood around him, their attention then turned to the wall; there was a very small hole in it with scratches of blood on. he saw pity in their eyes. Oris's face turned from the guards and grinned at his faint hope. Oris said, "It is time for me to go?" One of the guards replied sorrowfully, "Yes, Iím sorry." Oris replied with what ever hope he had left, "If you are so sorry why donít you let me go?" The other guard, who Oris recognized as one of his friends, said, "I'm sorry but that is out of my power to do. Besides I was the one who put you through all this." Oris replied in a tempered voice, "Go to hell! And Iíll help you get there." Oris had snatched up two of the boards he had knocked off the walls. Using his instincts, he jumped up and attacked. Oris knocked them off guard and slammed one in the head and kicked the other in the gut. As they backed away to draw their swords, Oris came closer to go in for the kill. Oris managed to take out his former friend by brutally smashing him with the wood boards before they had time to draw their sword's Oris picked up his former friends sword and approached the other guard. Oris then said, ďStay away or I'll do the same to you.Ē pointing to the dead guard. After that, he ran off, joined the military and quickly moved though the ranks. Kalum too was thinking of his past and the burning sand seemed to be sands of time. He recalled his youth from the earliest day he could remember. The sun shone hard that day. That day happened to be his sixteenth birthday. Many had foretold that this day would hold something for good and for worse. A tall Morgular came to the door holding a scroll. That scroll was dreaded by most but there was no way out. His mother had opened the door, crying, and the Morgular read the scroll aloud. By order of chief Minoa you are here by drafted into the military. There will be no appealing this order. Do not try to run, for when we catch you, you will be subject to torture for the same amount of time you have cost us to find you. Kalum had packed his bags and left for the war, never to come back the same-or maybe never come back at all. He felt guiltily for being gone so long but he vowed to come back someday. Meanwhile Marvin had stepped into an enormous crater but soon realized it was a foot print around 5 meters in size, with pointy toes. Marvin shivered at the thought of fighting one of them. Just then it grew dark as in if a cloud was passing overhead. Marvin looked ahead in fear that he might see the creature. To his relief he saw nothing. Then above him it started to blink from shady to blazing. Marvin upwards him yet again in fear. He saw gigantic outstretched wings, claws bigger then a human being and teeth sharper than the sharpest blade. The beast blew fire instead of breath, hotter then the depths of hell. The creature was covered in powerful scales stronger then the walls of Lordaron. It was burning red with a glowing globe symbol on its chest. It swooped down at them for a snack. Kalum gasped and fainted. Oris screamed in terror and fell flat on his face, whereas Marvin stood his ground nervously for he knew that symbol. Marvin raised his arms and chanted with his green daggers glowing in the rays of the sun and magic. The dragon stumbled back in surprise: he hadn't seen magic for 3 thousand years, back when the orb was made. Marvin stopped the spell and said, "You are a great dragon and we seek the orb that seals all the magic in the world. Will you help us?" The dragon replied, "I have never seen your kind in this world. You are the only one who has ever stood up to me other then the daemons, all others cowered. Why is it that you stand up?" Marvin looked around and said, "What else is there to do against you? I know what you are. Your symbol tells me everything." The dragon took a step back, "Then you are a daemon?" Marin replied, "No, no, I am only human." The dragon hissed, "Then how do you know of us? Only the daemons know," Marvin spoke, "I battled long with the head daemon but he was greater and destroyed me bit by bit until I was no more. However I was awoken by my ankh of reincarnation and I teleported to this world." The dragon stared in awe, "What? You mean you have gone where no living creature has survived from before, the altar of the daemon? What else did the pillars say?" Marvin replied, "I would give that information willingly but first you must swear on Higrathia (The dragon god.) That you will not kill us once I have told you." The dragon swore and listened to every word Marvin had to say like a little child listening to his parents. After Marvin finished telling the dragon, the dragon asked, "Now tell me: why is it that you want to destroy the orb?" Marvin replied, "Is it not obvious? Do you not see that we can use magic to destroy them?" The dragon shook his head, "Human, you know the forbidden pools? Well, when you destroy the orb, the spell is broken and the daemons will come out of those holes and we will have to fight two daemon armies at once instead of just one. I ask of you to discontinue your quest. I have a quest that would suit you." Marvin nodded and was told that he needed to go to the north and patrol around the enemy base. Whenever a few daemons would come out, they would ambush them and hopefuly force the daemons to only send armies and never raiding parties and posably prevent them from creating a race similar to the scourge. The dragon gave Marvin an amulet of anti-magic so that he would not be taken over. Although it sounded easy, Marvin felt deep down that it was nearly imposible. Then the dragon made a shield of green light around itself and disappeared to tell his masters. Oris approached Marvin, "What was he?" Marvin replied, "The galaxy guardians. They are opposed to the daemons. They try to prevent the daemons from destroying worlds instead of destroying planets." Oris stated, "Well, thatís good. Where are we going now?" Marvin replied fearfully, "Up north to kill. Before the daemons create an army like the scourge." Oris responded, "Yes, that is probably the best thing to do. And the scariest, not to mention." Marvin chuckled, "I have never known you to be a sissy." Oris countered, "Nor will you." Marvin laughed, "Yea right, you fell into the sand on purpose in order to camoflauge." Oris replied, "Maybe how would you know." Chapter IV An Old Ally and a Powerful Foe It had been hot dry and they hardly had any food in the desert. But became less and less so every step they took. They saw a huge feild of green ahead. Oris asked, "What on Azeroth is a beast like that doing? It's probably even big enough to destroy Lordaron alone." Marvin responded with a faint laugh, "Your eyes betray you. I see it as a welcoming. My heart leaps with joy to see it once again. It will do you no harm." Once they got to the feild it turned out to be mere grass. Marvin said happily, "I told you so." "You always have to be so sure. Maybe all of a sudden then land will attack uusss..." Oris responded. He was flung in the air and landed ten feet away. He turned around and saw a mud golem walking towards him. Oris scrambled for his sword but he soon realized it had fell out of its sheath when he fallen down. The golem picked up the struggling, defenseless Oris. And put him down, on Oris's own head and started to balance him so that Oris didn't fall over onto his feet. Then he heard a voice say, "Oops sorry. I told him to put you back up. I guess he forgot that you guys use your feet to walk." Right then the golem disappeared into a pile of dirt and something started rising out of the soil. A little-head like bump came out first. Oris ran over and started kicking it. The creature yelped, "What are you doing? That hurts, you know." Marvin recognized the voice and said happily, "Farener, how did you get here? I thought you would be sitting around enjoying the scenery in Kalimdor for the rest of your life." Farener responded in a serious tone, "Look, I would have if I could have but... but..." Tears welled up in his eyes. "It blew up." Marvin looked dumbfounded and Oris seemed in shock. There was a long silence. "But, atlas, we must move on." said Farener, breaking the silence. "All those that I swore to protect! Every single one?" Oris gasped out. Farener brightened up "Not all, not all. I happened to be in your king's city when the world blew up. A few of your people got out okay." Oris replied with a hint of curiosity, "How did they live? I don't see how it would be possible? I can't believe you got out okay. That little stunt you did on me was more then annoying. Did my king survive?" Farener laughed, "I'll just start from the beginning. Once Marvin got lost, Seroner and I started going to Fogwood Forest, where we encountered some trouble. Hundreds of undead creatures, Seroner, called ghouls swarmed out of the trees and ambushed us. There was also one other... I have seen him before as has Marvin..." "Baron!" said Marvin, finishing Farener's sentence. Farener replied, "Yes, Baron the Dark. He told us to join him but I refused. However Seroner accepted and Baron made him as his first test to kill me... I stood little chance against all of them but I fought on. Baron charged me again and again and finally he hit me in the leg. It is still broken to this day." he said pulling up his pant leg." As I fell to the ground, two things happened: two of the ghouls pounced on me, one imbedded its claws into my back while the other bit my right hand." Farener held out his right hand. Half of it was swinging around attached by a few moldy strands of flesh. He continued, "The other thing that happened is that an army of around five hundred strong charged in and within seconds the undead fled. The army treated me as well as they could and only just barely managed to keep me alive. Then I went with them to your kingís keep and stayed there enjoying the scenery-like you said, until a dragon arrived. This dragon warned us that the daemons had arrived at the world tree and told us to enter a portal he had made. He said that it was our only hope to survive. Most didn't believe him and thought he was leading them into a trap but some went, including me." Marvin remarked, "Well, at least we found you. Its remarkable how lucky we are." "Actually he found you." Farener responded, pointing across the plains. Marvin saw the same dragon that had talked to them before. Marvin shrugged his shoulders and said, "Let's see if he can give us a ride up north." "Well, it never hurt to try." Oris replied. They ran as fast as their legs could carry them and somehow Farener just rode on the ground as if it were a horse. "Well now it has hurt someone." Oris screamed as he tripped over a rock. Marvin laughed, "Thatís nice to know." Finally they reached the dragon who was enjoying a nice disgusting meal. Marvin walked up and knocked on one of the dragonís scales. The dragon turned around and asked, "I thought you would come around soon. What is it that you need?" Farener replied, "Well, we were wondering if you could take us up north? So that we donít have to walk." The dragon sighed, "Alright, but be prepared. it gets quite cold at that altitude." Oris asked, "What is 'altitude'?" Marvin responded, "Who cares? Not me. Uh, dragon, you don't mind touching fire do you?" The dragon replied, "I don't mind much." Marvin said to the dragon, "Good, hold on so that we can put some logs on you." They gathered lots of firewood. Loaded it onto the dragon. Pulled up a few of the scales and used those as seats. Then they set off. Soon the temperature dropped to freezing, so Kalum and Oris got a fire started on the dragon's back. The dragon moaned, "Something tells me I'm getting more then I bargained for." Marvin replied, "We will keep the fire low." while patting the dragonís enormous head. The sky was clear-not a cloud in sight. The moon was full and millions upon millions of stars twinkled in the midnight sky, 'perhaps this world wasn't so different from his own.' He thought as sleep slowly crept upon him and soon he doused off into a deep slumber. When morning finally arrived, they touched down to the ground ever so softly. The sun was red and rising with welcome warmth. But the land was frozen a bare. A layer of snow and ice hid the once lush land from sight. They needed the warmth that only fire could bring to warm their numb bodies. Therefore they build a fire out of the frozen logs. Eventually they had what would have been a roaring fire had it not been in these frozen plains. Surprisingly not a single piece of ice melted, not even the ones right under the fire. When the sun shone right above them (noon), the dragon left on his own mission. Farener walked up to the fire happily, "Did you not feel that Marvin?" Marvin nodded,"Yes, I fear that the great Orb has been destroyed." "And thatís a good thing." Farener smiled. Marvin responded fearfully, "The daemons have awoken." Rumbling could be heard from the ice as it parted. All-Marvin, Oris, Farener and Kalum-looked down at the ice. What they saw terrified them beyond fear. Below the thin an ever thinning layer of ice was and army of daemons. Oris shouted, "Run! We will be lucky to get out even now! I'll hold them off for a minute." "No, if we are to die now we die together in honor!" Yelled Kalum. "Go now! I'll catch up." Replied Oris Kalum retorted, "Do you really believe that one man alone could hold back this army for even a second? We stand together." "Alright, Kalum. We stand together and we fall together. I shall avenge the death of my world." Oris replied in a brave tone. Kalum yelled as he charged into the daemon army, "I to fight to avenge your world as well as to save mine." Marvin and Farener sprinted tirelessly caring only about escaping. Once they felt they were few miles ahead of the daemons, Marvin panted out, "Where... where is Oris? Kalum caught up, also gasping for breath with two arrows impaled in his chest and his face turning paler by the second. "Oris was slain. The daemons caught him. I blocked a few of the arrows but... but he still fell. I saw him rise once again but not as a human but a zombie without control of his own body. I fear that I, too, am going to pass away." His face turned chalk white and he collapsed to the ground. Marvin dropped down beside Kalum to his knees, with his head in his hands, "It's hopeless. We might as well have all perished. Its hopeless." "We still have some time left. You can still heal him." Remarked Farener with a sense of urgency. Marvin stood up, "If it might make a differance." "Of course it will he's as good a fighter as any." Farener replyed Marvin lifted his hand and white light slowly circled Kalum healing the wounds. Kalum rose, with the arrow wounds no more, he said, "Thank you Marvin. We must run. We can not linger here any longer." Nobody budged. Suddenly out of nowhere a few arrows flew at them but thankfully they all missed. Kalum yelled once again, "Run!", although they had already started running. Farener was using the ground to carry him, as usual, which was slightly annoying to Marvin and Kalum because they actually had to run. Hours later Farener asked, "I think it would be safe to stop here for the night, don't you?" "It probably would be safe enough." Replyed Marvin. Almost on key, an arrow zipped by. Marvin then continued, "In a couple of hours." Out of fear everyone redoubled their pace. They ran on and on into the dead of the night. It was much later when they felt safe enough to settle down for the few remaining hours the night had left. Although they were frozen to their very bones, they dared not make a fire nor did they had the energy to. The trio lay down and fell asleep the moment they lay down. They had run hard that day but nothing could prepare them for what was to come. Only Oris really knew what was in store for them although he could not warn then nor help them. He could only hurt them. He was powerless as of now.

Chapter V In the Jaws of Death

Oris watched as his body was trained in the art of the death night. He saw the power they had all he had. To do to get control of it was sign a pact. He refused every time they asked him. Later they gave up on him and incorporated him into their army. Marvin's dreams were troubled. Scenes flashed through his head. He saw millions upon millions of undead warriors. Marching across the frozen north and Oris was one of them. He saw cities in ruins still burning from the battles that were made and finished that day. Not a city on the world still stood. Only one thing still stood in the daemons way: The galaxy guardians guarded the heart of the planet, the stone of life. Once that would be destroyed all life on the world would be destroyed. Marvin knew the dragons would soon give in to the power of the scourge. He then saw the daemon world he watched as the nameless daemon controlled each and every warrior of the scourge. Suddenly Marvin awoke, covered with cold sweat. Farener and Kalum were still asleep and the moon shone high in the sky. Marvin needed answers. He crawled over to Kalum as not to be seen. Marvin awoke Kalum who was having nightmares of Oris's death. Marvin asked him urgently, "Kalum is their any one in this world who can create a portal?" "Uh, yes, but he does charge a high price. A very high price." Kalum replied. Marvin questioned him, "What kind of price?"

"Lives." Kalum responded coldly.

Marvin shivered, "Where can we find him?"

"In the northern deserts." Kalum answered.

Marvin commanded, "Awake Farener now!"

"But we have only slept an hour or so." Kalum pleaded.

Marvin replied without emotion, "They are coming for us; time is the only resource we have left. Not a single city still stands. We must act now."

Farener, who had been eavesdropping, walked over. "Kalum, you know how you told me how much you longed to see your family. Well, if we don't act now they will all die." "Alright... Alright, you win I will guide you to his mountain." Kalum whimpered. Just after they walked out of where they had slept earlier, an army of undead marched by. Oris was a rear guard. Suddenly Marvin realized something important, he watched as they walked by then he jumped out of his hiding spot and he beamed bright white light at Oris. Who then wrenched control of his body and ran to Marvin. Marvin had resurrected him. He managed to do so to a few more and ran leaving those to die once again. At least they got away and freed Oris. As the four ran Marvin informed Oris of what they were doing. Marvin and Oris were running as in if they had no limits they thought nothing of their aching muscles all they thought of was revenge. Kalum and Farener pleaded for them to slow down. Eventually Kalum just decided to give them directions and leave on their own. Their journey was a long, painful one. They had run day and night for half a week before they sighted the mountains of Cosadule. The sight was a welcome one for the snowy peaks they knew would feel spectacular after they had been in the burning desert for so long. Often they collapsed onto the sand due to sheer exhaustion. After another day's journey they had reached the mountainside. Marvin spoke as well as he could with his dry mouth, "We... must set camp!" But Oris had vanished from sight. Marvin heard a voice from inside the mountain. Marvin shouted, "Where are you?" and collapsed against the mountainside. He awoke momentís later, resting on a cold stone floor. Marvin stood up and looked around. It was pitch black-so dark he couldn't even see his own hand. He stumbled on a jagged rock and fell forward into something nice and cool-a lake of water'. He drank more then his fill, drinking blindly until he accidentally ate a mouth full of sand, bringing him back to reality. He pulled out both his daggers and cast a spell creating a faint glow around them letting him see ten feet away. He saw Oris drinking. They also saw walls tons of walls, they saw a few strange creatures with the heads of bulls almost motionless he gasped out, "This is a labyrinth." Oris yelled he was used to speaking at the top of his voice in the desert so Marvin could actually hear him through the howling of the wind. "Holy molly, I thought that this place would be smaller." His voice echoed on for what seemed like an eon. Eventually they mustered enough courage to proceed. After what seemed like a day, they reached a chamber. As they approached the entrance, the door burst open. They saw a cloak figure about the size of a human sitting on a throne. Immediately after they entered the door slammed shut. Oris struggled with the door cursing loudly. But to no avail the door didn't budge. The figure on the throne stepped up, tossing back her hood revealing a strange creature neither dead nor alive. Shining purple hair drooped down her shoulders. Her eyes burned like fire. She acquired lives to make her more alive. She asked, "What have you come for, weaklings?" "Weakling? You call us weaklings! I could take out thousands of you imbeciles." Oris yelled in anger.

She screamed, "Take their weapons away. I can't deal with armed men."

Two guards approached and were willingly given Marvin and Oris's weapons.

Marvin spoke, "As you see, we do not wish to fight you-just to bargain. What we want is to be teleported into the altar of the daemon. And I will pay you almost whatever you wish."

She laughed, "Why bargain with someone I can already get what ever I want from?" With a wave of the sorceress's hand, four fully armed guards attacked the unarmed Marvin and Oris. Marvin simply waved his hand and shot an enormous cobweb at them binding them against the wall.

"You can't deprive me of spells foul creature. Now what is it that you want from us?" Marvin said harshly.

The sorceress thought for a moment, "Stop this world from being destroyed. For if it is, then I shall have to build my base elsewhere."

"Then so be it. Create the teleport. If I destroy the daemon world the scourge shall be destroyed as well as the daemons." Marvin growled.

The sorceress mumbled, "How can I trust you?"

Marvin responded, "I will leave Oris with you."

"Never! I will not stay with this... thing. I will go with you Marvin." Oris screamed. Marvin replied holding Oris by the shoulders, "No! This is a task for me. This is the only way to have even a chance of defeating the daemons once and for all. I will probably perish. This is not the road I wish to travel but I must. It is not my choice." Oris's eyes watered, "You are the only one I have met who will give his life for others. I will miss you. Perhaps our roads will cross once again."

"Perhaps... I look forward to that day if there is the day." Marvin answered, trying to conceal the truth that he knew he would fall from life. He whispered to himself, "Perhaps but not in life. Maybe heaven." he thought as he walked through the fiery red portal, daggers in hand.

Chapter VI The Final Battle

Many of the soldiers who escaped from Azeroth led by the Order of the Silver Hand (The Order of the Paladin) stood awaiting death trying to defend the Stone of Life. Only a league or two away was an army of the scourge who outnumbered them around a hundred to one. The only thing the army of the Silver Hand had the upper hand in was time: they had created a makeshift fort only five feet high in most places out of wood. They had a moat, also around five feet deep. The walls had a layer of spears jutting out for the mindless scourge to impale themselves on. The scourge flew towards the fort with unholy speed and was soon upon them. Having the whole of the Silver Hand, against the undead, this wouldn't be an easy task. "My Lord, the scourge is nearly upon us." Said one of the paladins to the head of the Silver hand Maximus the Bright. Maximus held out his hand. "Sir?" "Baron the Dark." Replied the paladin Maximus reached for his hammer but was held back by Baron's powerful hands. Maximus screamed, "I should have been able to tell pail paladin. Now I'll squish you for all the death you have caused." "Hold it we still might have a chance I know their ways. Thatís why I aligned the spikes the way I did not to mention the moat, and the men and the wall and every thing else. Furthermore, my pact with the Lich king was broken when he was slued by the daemons for traitoring." Baron defended himself." "And who is this robed thing you bring with you?" Maximus questioned. A voice hissed, "It is I, Seroner. I was forced to join them under threat of death. Only now did I become free of the pact." Seroner threw back his robe revealing a skeleton floating above ground. Immediately Seroner pulled his robe back up so that none of the other humans would mistake him for an enemy. "Now I come to help my brethren in time of need." Maximus nodded, "It is a worthy deed you are doing. And god shall reward you." A beam of light circled both Seroner and Baron bringing back their humanity. Seroner and baron felt strange as they now moved by two sources death and life making them twice as powerful Seroner said, "I don't know how we could ever repay you." They were met by Maximus's harsh voice, "You will today. Now get up on the wall." Once upon the wall they saw how effective their traps had been. The ghouls were trapped under water although unharmed they couldn't swim due to their weight and were temporarily stuck. However the ghouls were beginning to climb up onto the wall. Huge chunks of meat sowed together with multiple arms and intestines hanging about who were known only as abominations to Seroner were held at a distance by the spears. Seroner raised his hand. And Baron nodded. Cold arctic wind rushed forth turning the top of moat to ice. Trapping the ghouls in the moat under a thin layer of ice. "Pull in the spears! Now!" Baron yelled at the top of his voice. There was a wide variety of different responses, "Yes, sir." "Aye, aye." "Lets roll." "For Lordaron!" from the troops. As soon as the spears were pulled back the Abominations charged swinging their arms wildly. Instantly the ice broke under the sheer weight of Abominations and sickening crunching sounds were heard as ghouls were crushed under the gross abominations. It is then that Seroner froze the ice completely. Only the abominations top halves stood out of the water. So far their plan had gone well although; they had only almost held off a small skirmish. Baron leapt out with speed he had never had before he dodged hundreds of meat cleaver wielding arms insanely at their dark, previous master. Baron knew they had no aim whatsoever so he darted around the stupid chunks of meat and watched at they hacked at each other while trying to hit him. Within minutes the undead in the skirmish was utterly destroyed. Baron grinned and strode triumphantly towards the fort. Suddenly they struck him. He fell to his knees. Brown blood pouring from him half alive, half dead. He looked up to see four ghouls clawing his back. Baron raised his fist and chanted, "Thouest has signed the pact to appease thy masters! And I am one so I call upon your energies to come forth into me." Nothing happened. "Why has death forsaken me? This was the last time! Now I shall return to the light if only I survive this." He moaned. His sword flew from its sheath Baron swung it around his back. Two of the ghouls were caught off guard and slued by the rune blade. The other three merely leapt off his back taking large chunks of it with them. Baron sprawled along the ground hoping to escape the ghoulís deathblow. It never came. He turned over to see Maximus praying next to him. Slowly his pains ceased and sleep overcame him. Baron awoke to the sound of metal on bone, which he knew so well. His eyes opened and he saw that he was in a makeshift hospital with a few priests around him. He bolted up but was restrained by the priests, "What do you think you are doing." "My people!" Baron yelled, "I must help my people!" The priest responded, "Maximus's orders are to keep you here for the day." Baron fell back helplessly, listening to his fellow humans fall. "I'm starving after the fight. Were is the food kept?" Baron asked. The priest responded happily because he had won the argument. "Just down that hall. You'll know it when you see it." Baron darted out of bed and snatched his armor and his sword while running in the battles direction of the battle. Soon his eye caught sight of the wall. The scourge was overwhelming the puny human force and the abomination's utterly destroyed everything in their path. Ghouls slue footmen here and there. Dead bodies flew through the air pounding at the pathetic walls whilst Gargoyles dropped boulders on them. "Baron! Help me gather the paladins in front of the church!" Muximus yelled, "Go!" Baron jumped into the fray, "Will do commander." He knocked his way to the front lines with ease. Where he sighted Seroner in the middle of the undead army he apparently still looked like one of them. Baron signaled for him to come. By the time Seroner arrived Baron had found two paladins and they charged down to the church doing Baron's new hobby, slicing and dicing undead. Upon arrival they were faced with two options stay and fight. Or flee with the stone of life. Baron chose to go with the stone and Seroner stayed to fight. Another army of the dead soon cut off baronís flight. The human lines held their position fighting back the endless waves of the dead. The stone of life must however be defended at all costs. Slowly the brave warriors crumpled upon the sand. Although the galaxy guardians fought along side it was just a matter of time for they to slowly fell to the earth dead. Miles across the desert the powerful sorceress neither dead nor living was organizing her forces to claim the stone for herself. It is then that she could become truly alive. Soon the Minotaur also met in combat. And being far the strongest creature on the battlefield. Pretty soon all opposition was destroyed. The sorceress walked up to where the stone lay. It was gone but she saw it glued to the back of a rune blade held high by a man. The scars and blood covering him made him almost illegible. An arm was missing although his facial expression showed it not. His face was dripping with blood and an eye hung from its dirty socket. His nose was smashed and twisted. Yet he still stood fighting against imposable odds. His sword blunt yet strong. He never slowed and chanted over and over again terrifying all who came near even his fellow men. "I can not fail my mission

And give the undead a haven

Be it my honor

My pride

Or my strength

That holds me up

Which ever or whatever it may be

I will not drop until it can no longer hold me

I will not slow until my mission is complete

So step aside or feel my blade

The choice is up to you on which

Life or death

Which does thou chose."

Soon a voice interrupted him, "Hand over the stone!" Baron spun around startling the sorceress. "If your cause is ill you could never acquire it not even with an army twice this size. If you fight to save the lives of others for the light or even the right you will find the stone in your hands." "Give me the stone! I fight for life." The sorceress yelled. Baron answers not the least bit afraid, "First you must swear that you will protect the stone and give life freely for any dead creature." "Freely! Who do you think I am a nice person? Get him boys." The sorceress yelled. Sure enough hundreds of Minotaur attacked him but were repulsed by a strange golden light. Baron said, "It is time we reach some kind of a deal."

Chapter VII

It was twilight when the daemon rose from the ground and a mist came as well. The moons slowly crept above the horizon-one of them peaceful like heaven, the other evil like hell. The universe rested upon this battle; If Marvin was to prevail, the daemons would be vanquished forever but if he were to fail the Galaxy guardians would soon fall, along with the universe. The daemon laughed, "You dare to face me again? You will not be so lucky getting away this time!" "I had to come. If I didn't, all life would perish! This time I have come to win. Not even you can stop me!" Marvin yelled in anger. The daemon responded, "A little overconfident, are you?" "I have became many times more powerful since we last met Daemon!" Marvin retorted. The daemon hissed, "As have I." The daemon's hand came up and a lightning bolt came down. The bolt of lightning smashed into Marvin having absolutely no effect.

The daemon then followed up by swinging, his sword in wide arcs. Marvin waited until the last moment to move. He dove between the daemon's legs, making small cuts as he ran through. The daemon reached down to grab Marvin but was met by two blades. The nameless daemon then cast a powerful spell. A fireball that would cover a world was stuck inside the invincible shield.

Marvin was shocked. He thought, 'Why am I not dead?' his attention flew to his hand he found the answer. 'Its the amulet of anti-magic.'

The daemon sighted him, "What! You survived again?" He yelled in anguish.

"Yes, I did. Did you not see my amulet?" Said Marvin mockingly.

And soon fell in pain. Looked over himself and saw a deep gash on his side.

The daemon laughed coldly, "You didn't even see it coming."

"Thatís just because you have fire blade. You wouldnít see it coming if I stabbed you." With that, Marvin hurled one of his blades at the daemon. It dug deep into the daemon's soft fleshy neck. The daemon roared in pain, collapsing on the ground.

Marvin ran eagerly to the center of the altar. "I have completed my test... Now destroy this world!"

"Think again." a voice roared from behind.

Marvin twirled around to see the daemon and a sword protruding into his own chest. His vision fogged, clouded with blood.

He whispered in a low tone, "Will you not let me have my last words." And fell backwards off the sword.

"Make it quick. Hopefuly its shorter then you." The daemon laughed and waited impatiently while Marvin talked to himself. But soon the daemon roared in pain as a dagger was hemmed into his leg. He turned around to face Marvin standing up again and his fatal gash was merely a scar.

The daemon grumbled, "You can never get a fair fight with a healer."

"Then why don't you pick on one your own size?" Marvin teased.

The daemon replied "Because you're the only other one here!"

"Excuses, excuses. You still could have sat down and watched as I cut your head off." Marvin said sarcastically.

The daemon flew into the type of rage, which Marvin had only seen before in Orcs. Blow after blow was blasted at him but were easily countered, only resulting in a few minor cuts across the daemon's body. But eventually one stroke found its mark immobilizing a leg, with the blades flat side. Marvin slid to the ground to see the daemon reaching down to him. He was picked up by the daemon and slowly squeezed. Lifted high into the air Marvin knew what he had to do. He quickly recalled Karbreds song when he died against the daemons. Marvin then added some more to the song in order to make himself sound even better even though he would be lieing on about half of the new words.

Oh from world to world I go

From death to life I go

Life to death

For I am Marvin Protector of the land

The universe and the gentle hand

In the name of the holy light

My kin comrades friends and family

I wield all I have left

My magical powers

It is with this that I will complete my destiny

I, Marvin, have come for a purpose

I have been created for this day

I have come many times in the past

I have fallen many times in the past

I am now here to save thy people

I am now here to save thy county

I am now here to save thy world

I am now here to go

I am now to give thy last life

Never to come again

Never to set thy foot upon land

Never to set thy foot in the waters

I am but to save my people

I am but to defeat the daemons
