A Dragon Rodeo?
Back in the days before anyone can remember, a bloody war of global dominance raged between the world of Drakan's two most powerful races, the wily and versatile humans and the deadly and venerable dragons. Through centuries of death, razed homes, epic battles, and utter destruction, an end to this genocide was nowhere in sight. Finally, a ray of reason shone through in the most unlikely of places. In a remote region high in the peaks of Drakan's central mountains, a lone tribe of men made an uneasy compromise with the neighboring dragons. In time, a mutual trust was formed; and thus, the seeds of peace and a great alliance were sown, called the Order of the Flame.
But alas, if only they lived happily ever after. As the alliance grew stronger every passing day, so did its group of detractors. The greatest of them all was an evil war mage named Navros, the supreme leader of the underground Dark Union, who managed to also swindle his way into the council of the Order of the Flame. It was on one fateful evening that the secretive Dark Union's evil plot came to light - as the most respected members of the Order convened in Dragon Temple (through Navro's trickery), Navros summoned forth all hell and fury and cast it upon the city. Within minutes, the entire city lay in ruins, hordes of dark, monstrous figures poured out onto the streets, and the brightest minds of the Order were forever sealed in the rubble of the once grand temple.
Rynn on a Mission
Now this is where you step up to the plate. You play as Rynn, a feisty young fighter who one day awakens to find her village completely destroyed during a raid, and her brother kidnapped by an evil horde. As luck, fate, or perhaps both may have it, she and a legendary dragon, Arokh, are bound by their very souls to each other until death. As her faithful guardian, friend, and steed, Arokh will accompany her through hell or high water and aid her in safely rescuing her brother from the throes of the evil empire.
