Back during the time that was, before the great departure. The time when all creatures known lived together. No this was not the times of all good but the time of the evil division. When the creatures of earth discovered jealousies, hatred and envy. When man became aware of the differences in all those around him.
The time when man started calling himself HUMAN, from the ancient dialect, meaning the chosen of God. ,,,,,,,,,,

Before these times there was the time of the shining. When all was good. Everyone worked together. The people and the land prospered. The time of the shining is over, now and forever.

There was fighting among many of the different races. The land was ravaged. Dwarfs, Elves, Ogres and most of the creatures of magic were leaving the earth. Some of the lesser in magic would have to stay.

Those had decided to try and recapture the shining times. And all of magic knew they would be lost forever. For they did not have the way to leave. Some would go into hiding. Others would be forced to fight or die at the hand of what is now called HUMANITY.

Of the magic creatures that would be left behind were the dragons. They were large and would need to much food to be able to make the journey to the new land. Yet their size made it hard for them to hide from the time that was to come.

One of the elves, the most powerful known of the time, called all the dragons to him. He told them he had a plan to save them. They would be able to flourish and multiply. And sometime in the future they could come again to retake the earth.

He told them the plan and it was done. The largest of all that lived on earth became the smallest. They were so small man could never see them with his eyes and yet they would feed on his flesh, drink from his tears and have their salt from the sweat of his brow. From this day forward they would live around the very thing that could never see them. They would live around the human eye.

And there they live today!!!!!!!!!!!
