(Our story takes place in the Kingdom of Gold, a prosperous land where precious metals and gemstones have given great wealth to all of its citizens, ruled by the somewhat naive but benevolent king, Aurum. One day, an ominous shadow falls upon the entire realm, and monsters of a fearful sort begin to appear and terrorize the people. Despite summoning his best soldiers to combat the new threat, more monsters keep coming, and the darkness continues to spread. Ultimately, King Aurum decided to send out a call for all those fit to fight in the land to take up arms against the threat...promising that the one who could defeat the darkness for good will earn the hand of his only daughter, Princess Thalia, as well as the throne to the entire Kingdom of Gold....)
(We find ourselves meeting our heroine, Zikka Friday, as she enters the gates of the Golden Palace to answer the King's call for heroes. As a young bard from a little village in the Eastern Gemstone Mountains, the majesty of the palace is almost overwhelming!)
Zikka: Wow...!!!! So shiny!!!!
