[i [b "Now then, which story would you like me to recite to you tonight, my child? Auredura? My, that is a long story indeed-are you sure you wouldn't want a lighter bedtime story? No? Very well, I suppose it will take a few nights to go through it all. Tuck in and I will tell you all about my most famous adventure, and my most dearest friends. Let me see, hm, where should I begin..."]]
[i "I suppose I should start by saying we were all slight acquaintances way back then, there were five of us, including myself-a band of fearless dragon slayers who relied on each other to take down these fierce-some beasts that blacked out the sun with the spread of their wings, and burned through ramparts with blazing fire. They destroyed cities and crumbled castles under their weight, tore down walls like brittle reeds along the mountainsides. Auredura was a name we did not know at first, for that foe slept under rock and stone, buried beneath the treasure it coveted for millennia. Each dragon we slew demanded our respect and our understanding for the carnage they could deal; we were introduced to each other by an oddly coincidental mutual ally by the name of Ulthred."]
[i "Once we slew our first dragon the people really started to notice us, our reputations were distinguished by our weapons of choice. They gave us these silly, little monikers as we saved their lives, paid us with whatever small belongings that could be scrounged up in the wreckage, called us heroes! Yet nothing we had ever faced could prepare us for the power of Auredura, the ancient scourge of the land that destroyed our kingdom long ago from one coast to the other for five continuous centuries. The great horned dragon was taller than any civilization, its shadow cast consumed multiple cities beneath its wingspan, and its breath could char the steel of a knight's armor like it was made of tree bark."]

[i "It was Ulthred who told us about the Tale of Auredura, a fiendish creature who killed without conscience and kept our country bound in terror of his thunderous approach along the skies. The King of the time could not defeat the dragon, so they laid a trap in the mountains, it took years to carve out the underside of the mountain range, stemming from an abandoned keep nestled deep in the crook of the terrain. A giant cave took a few hundred years to complete, big enough to house the largest dragon the world had ever seen; once it was done, the new King, the great-grandson of the first, ordered it to be filled with large quantities of treasure."]
[i "A massive hoard of gold, silver, gems and jewels were poured in by the cart-full, piling as tall as a grown man filled the cavern. Among such riches the royal placed five powerful artifacts, amulets that emanated pure arcane energy-these would be the trigger for their trap. Dragons could never resist a treasure trove, desiring the glittering gold and shiny baubles with a strong determination to claim it as their own. Yet Auredura was far more intelligent than any mountain drake, what it desired most was [b magic], the gold was a nice enticer for any dragon, and it did not take long before the monstrous beast came crashing through the foundation of the ghostly keep to claim its prize."]
[i "The monarch threw everything they had at Auredura, and the dragon fought back so strongly the king even lost his own life, in a last ditch effort the magi sealed away the entrance to the keep and cave, locking the beast beneath the mountains for several hundred years. Until the world forgot the dragon who slept under the mountains, yet the greed of Man came to haunt us-thieves and robbers swarmed to find the hidden treasure, unknowing to the danger they were unleashing..."]

[i [b The Shield:]] I was given the moniker 'The Shield' due to my large tower shield I used with my heavy mace; a Paladin I used to be in my youth, sworn to serve the Aegis God, Pelandrin. A watchful guide to travelers and protector of the weak, my shield blocked dragon fire in defense of my comrades. Among the wreckage and burning beams I stood, covered in ash and soot my shield at the ready, I held the line with bravery and commitment. As stalwart as ever I never bothered with fear in the face of death, as the trust I placed in my friends pulled us through every fight. [b [+red TAKEN]]
[i [b The Sword:]] The Sword was a monster with any blade, deflecting falling debris and slashing against talon and fang until they were able to plunge their hungering sword deep into dragon hide until it punctured bone. They were strong, both concerning their will and their melee prowess; if there was ever an ideal dragon slayer, it was them. When dragons roared, they roared back with singing sword and thunder, cleaving through our enemies like a scythe through grain. They fought in front, slashing the exposed flesh as the others held the dragon's attention. A true companion the likes of which I have rarely seen in another of such ferocity and valor. [b [+red TAKEN]]
[i [b The Bow:]] The Bow was an extraordinary marksman, with a flurry of notched arrows they would rain down volleys and snipe dragons out of the sky with their aim; their arrows flying true against the opposition, arrowheads slicing through scales and pinning painful pressure points. Lithe and swift, their balance never wavered as they dodged blasts of fire, pelting the hard dragon hide with deep biting arrows. Every battlefield held no boundary they could not reach, no wall could stop their arrows from finding its mark. A true companion the likes of which I have rarely seen in another of such precision and skill. [b [+red TAKEN]]
[i [b The Staff:]] The Staff was a master of the arcane arts, wielding both the powers of destruction and restoration like two halves of the same whole. Perfectly balanced they stood in the wake of burning cities, gazed upon the great reptiles who dove at them and they held their ground unflinching. Their knowledge of lore and alchemy saved our lives on many occasions, even when our defenses failed and we were on the brink of death, impaled on dragon's claws, their magic brought us back. A true companion the likes of which I have rarely seen in another of such intelligence and power. [b [+red TAKEN]]
[i [b The Dagger:]] The Dagger was a mastermind of subterfuge and misdirection, as an agile and acrobatic fighter, their daggers would find the soft points on dragons without remorse. They were leaping upon the backs of dragons throwing caution to the wind-stabbing their blades into the eyes and ears of our foes, sliding and ripping down the membrane of their wings-shredding them to tatters. They jumped and flung themselves like a ribbon dancing through the breeze, fluidly dodging the larger opponents, who were slowed down by their size unable to defend against the onslaught of poisoned daggers. A true companion the likes of which I have rarely seen in another of such cunning and agility. [b [+red TAKEN]]
