While almost all the population of our planet, Earth, believes the world we live in to be the only world in existence, there is a small group of youths that are about to find out very differently… .
Another world, known as Kethijar, is made up of three distinct regions: Velan, Horit, and Yomel. Unlike the other two, Velan is the place of mortal beings. These mortals are the natives of Kethijar, the Velanians. They are curious creatures indeed, these Velanians. They can take one of two forms – fae, or creature. Though, out of fear of capture and torment, most Velanians hide amongst other animals in their creature form to evade those known as the terrible Shades.
Who are the Shades? They are fearsome creatures that have entered the realm of Velan from their native underground of Yomel – the lands shroud in darkness and shadowy mists. The entrance to Yomel is hidden within the side of a dormant volcano, and leads underground to a place of no light. No fires to see by, no light glistening through the cracks. Fortunate for the Shades, they need not light, nor fire to see. For some Shades, however, they live hidden above the underground cities and colonies. The darkness is their strength, and that is their reason for the attempt to take over Kethijar. It has been made apparent to the Velanians that the Shades will not stop with conquering Velan – their real goal is to reach Horit and enter the gate to the other world: domination is key intuitive to these horrid beings.
Horit – The Untouched Valley of the Ancients. Horit is nothing but ruins over grown by nature now. It was, and is, believed to be a gateway to another world, our world, Earth. But where does this gateway open? How does it work? The answer to both of these was unknown, until now. One Velanian of every generation is known as the Secret Keeper, the secrets of how to open the Gateway in Horit belonged only to them until they passed it down to the next. The Prophecies spoke of a race known as Human, how they would be the saviors of Kethijar and return all to balance. Though the Secret Keeper knows, that the Humans, once summoned, could be a blessing or a curse.
The Secret Keeper chose a select few Velanians to know the secrets of Horit, to be the Guides of the Humans once they arrived. These Guides, and one eavesdropping Shade, heard the following words:
“Be wary the humans to not fall into Shadian hands – for if Human sacrifices are made to the Horit Shrine, the gate will be opened to the other world, for all… and all of time.”
At that moment, the Secret Keeper, Kazauh died, dropping to the cold cobble stone. Along with him, all other secrets of the Horit Ruins. The Humans would come soon. The Guides would take turns on watch at the Horit Ruins, while their comrades battled with the Shades each night, and rested each day. If failed, the nights would get longer, and longer… and continue this path until eternal darkness consumes them all… .
But how would the humans get there? What was the equivalent gate on Earth to the Horit Ruins? To us it is merely a tourist attraction in the United Kingdom…A place known to us, as Stonehenge. Six youths, six teenagers to be exact, had been chosen by the Earth-bound gate. Each was summoned and found themselves, through different circumstances, visiting the ruins of Stonehenge all on the same day. Yet only those six were taken…only those six, had simply …vanished… .
Now the real story begins – the humans now find themselves in a new world, with new powers, and new abilities…and new responsibilities cast upon them.
Welcome to Kethijar, will you help us?
