one day, in a peaceful kingdom, monsters invaded the king’s castle. with two children at her side, the queen tried to flee from the attackers through the nearby woods. but her plan didn’t work out. when the monsters came closer, she hid the children beneath the trees and drew the pursuer’s attention. this too, however, did not go as planned: the children were discovered and attacked - their destiny remained unclear..

but then, some time after, in a far away place..

one of the two, a young boy, was washed ashore in his basket. luckily, an old man named TEO found and took the baby in…

 

 CHAPTER 1 MAPS AND PICTURES

 

16 year later...

 

TORTE catches EMMA’s scarf from a tree, after the wind blew it away. now that she got it back, the two can concentrate on why they are here:

with both of them finally being 16 years old, TORTE and EMMA are ready for the village’s trial. their goal is to reach the upper cliffs of the GOD’S ROCK and pray to the holy spirits that are the guardians of ISHI VILLAGE. they receive some hints from their friends and start the mission.

at the entrance of the cave that leads to the peak, TORTE and EMMA run into the first opponents: three slimes, eager to stop them before the journey has truly began.

together with their dog ROCKY, the two friends enter the cave.

 

around the halfway point of their trial, TORTE and EMMA run into a young boy who is in desperate need of help. out of the fog, monsters emerge and draw the young duo into a fight. it’s a relief that TORTE has already learnt MERA. with this spell he manages to defeat the enemies easily.

 

ROCKY takes the boy back to the other villagers, while TORTE and EMMA continue their trial.

at the cliffs near the peak, TORTE and EMMA are ready to start their prayers, when suddenly, a huge bird appears. it knocks EMMA off the cliff and immediately prepares for a follow-up-attack. just in time, TORTE is able to grab EMMA.

 

when the bird chases towards them, the symbol on the back of the young man’s hand starts to glow. a thunderbolt appears, as if being called by TORTE and scares off the monster.

 

the two friends are finally able to complete their mission. sending their prayers to the spirits, they stand at the edge of the cliff…“what a vast world this is…”

TORTE and EMMA are amazed by the view…

the trial is completed! now it’s back to the other villagers…

everyone is relieved to see the two youngsters return save. they all head back to ISHI VILLAGE, eager to know the details of the adventure. but first, TORTE needs to tell his mother that he is all right… and, from now on, one of the village’s grown-ups!

the strange monster, the attack on the peak, the glowing birthmark… when TORTE and EMMA report everything that happened during the trial, TORTE’s mother PELRA decides to share a secret that she had hidden from him for 16 years…

she shows him a necklace that TEO had asked her to keep save until the right time comes. then PELRA spills the beans:

 

HE IS THE REINCARNATION OF THE ANCIENT HERO WHO ONCE SAVED THE WORLD FROM DARKNESS.

this means he has a mission to fulfill, although no one knows exactly what this mission looks like. with a heavy heart, PELRA asks TORTE to leave the village and head towards the northern kingdom DELCADAR. there he should meet the king and show him the necklace. the king should be able to tell TORTE a lot more about all of this and might be able to help him uncover his true destiny.

after a restless night and a sad goodbye with EMMA, TORTE starts his adventure. the villagers still can’t believe that one of them is actually the reborn hero…
 

ISHI’s mayor hands TORTE a map of their world LOTOZETACIA.

from EMMA he receives a good luck charm.

take care on your journey, TORTE!

and come back home save!

 

on the back of his horse, TORTE travels across the plains of DELCADAR. on his way, a stranger hints towards a goddess statue that has a fireplace next to it. there, TORTE can rest without looking out for monsters and make records of his journey.

 

TORTE reaches DELCADAR after riding north. when he passes through the town’s gate, he is quite impressed by the size of this place.

this is it:

DELCADAR.

the pride of all of LOTOZETACIA. the place where the king resides.

here it all begins…
