Etchings on the Stone Wall
A World of Alyzandre short story
Written By Shane Reed
CHAPTER 1 - IN THE DARK AGES
At a time far away from our own in the world of Alzandyre, A man was born. At a time when people still lived in the dark ages, He was a visionary who wanted the world to remember his name.
That name was Kedo Jizu. He was born into the world in what can barely be called a hut, killing his mother at birth through insufficient technology and blood loss, starting a long line of ill luck for the unhappy or dead women of the Negara family line.
As a boy, Jizus' father hated him mercilessly, leaving him to die on the Great Ridge (Now called Siphinas' rise) at the age of ten.
Fending off wild animals, foraging and hunting, Jizu had an iron will, and a taste for conquest. He reached his peak at age fifteen.
The warring tribes of the land, the Psuda and the Morin, were the strongest. Each tribe was ruled by five noblemen.
Jizu challenged each of the lords to individual duels. The Morin complied, and he felled each with his trusty wooden staff. Having the Morin under his control, the Psuda were next. As the stronger of the two, the Psuda refused individual battle and attacked Jizu together. He killed all five of the leaders and half of their two hundred foot soldiers before they surrendered.
For the first time in the Northeast highlands of Alzandyre, an alliance was formed, known as the Earth Village, in respect to the forces that Jizu believed to have saved him.
There was an uneasy peace between the two tribes, but Jizu eliminated any conflict immediately with a single stern look.
Many villagers, including Jizu himself, became magic users who manipulated earth to make buildings, weaponry, and to defend themselves.
Through the integration process, Jizu became friends with both Morin and Psuda. He soon fell in love with his best friend and comrade, a Psuda, Iko Izohime.
Within ten years, they formed the first family monarchy of the Earth Village with Nagara Kedomaru the first and his five younger siblings. The younger siblings went to become high - ranked military, spiritualist, agriculture, mining and expansion officials.
Psuda were given high ranked jobs to keep them under control, while the Morin were given menial tasks, as they were happy with the situation.
Nagara Kedomaru the first became leader twenty years later at the age of thirty five, starting a new family line after Jizus' death.
