Nothing new to inspire.
The story begins on the magical world of Orb, alone in a sea that the
people of the Manmarch call Endless, where there lies the mystical
Island of Tranquil Dreams.
Many years have passed since the time when, as an infant, you first
saw its golden shores and emerald rice meadows. A servant brought you,
braving the distant leagues of the ponderous ocean from lands to which
you have never returned. Your loyal servant laid you, an orphan, at
the steps of the Temple of the Rock, praying that the monks would care
for you, for she was frail and dying of a hideous curse.
Monks have lived on the island for centuries, dedicated to the worship
of their God, Kwon, He who speaks the Holy Word of Power, Supreme
Master of Unarmed Combat. They live only to help others resist the
evil that infests the world. Seeing that you were alone and needed
care, the monks took you in and you became an acolyte a the Temple of
Nothing was made of the strange birthmark, shaped like a
crown, which you carry on your thigh, though you remember that old
servant insisted that it was of mystical importance. Whenever you have
asked about this the monks have bade you meditate and be patient.
The most ancient and powerful of them all, Naijishi, Grand Master of
the Dawn, became your foster father. He gave you guidance and training
in the calm goodness of Kwon.
