Sending the undead to assault the sea elves, it has been wreaking havoc upon them. Humans from the bucaneer port of Elnar. Realizing the danger, and hating the Kraken of old, the bucaneers allied with the elves; one of their longships now lies here, and it's crew...well they are no longer alive...Injured, the Elven Prince relies on his friend, a dolphin, to carry him away from the Kraken. 1024x768 version


SO, WHERE'S THE DRAGON?

  So the heroes are in the depths of the swamp, hunting dragons! Course they get a bit water logged, a bit lost...So they stop, hide their gear up in the branches of a tree to dry out while they study their map to see where the dragon is...  Well the dragon has found them! Invisibility won't stop the sounds of an 8 ton dragon splashing around, so he uses a special glamour that makes folk overlook him. People forget dragons are big AND smart AND magical, this one's a sneaky bastich as well which is why he's a survivor. However... he is a CURIOUS dragon, in that his curiosity has got the better of him...he peers of the wizard's shoulder...


Ooh! a map! The dragon's never seen a map of his own home before.
"So the orcs are over THERE...hm. Trolls down THERE..nope, they're dead, ate last of them 3 months ago. I didn't know SHE lived THERE! Hey wait a minute, no wonder they are lost, that maps been drawn UPSIDE DOWN!"

   
Arena of Tyr

THE ARENA OF TYR

The world of Athas is roasted by the Dark Sun, a crimson giant that dominates the sky. A harsh, desert land lit with eerie colours. A few cities lie scattered aorund its parched surface. Metal is even more rare and precious than water. The city of Tyr is ruled by Kalak, the Sorcerer-King, an ancient, evil despot, he entertains his citizens with spectacles of blood in the Arena. Here, a desert giant is fighting several gladiators.

To the left is an elf, tall, proud and as devious and slippery as a mud-eel. A mul spearman is dodging the giant as he swings another gladiator as a weapon! Muls are sterile half breeds of man and dwarf, kept as prized slaves. Meanwhile the female human of the team uses her mental powers (psionics) to try and slow the behemoth.
