Think of a world where there are dragons. Not just the ol' regular run-of-the-mill-actually-more-like-burn-your-mill-to-the-ground type of dragon, oh no. Think of dragons as a more...diverse species. Underwater dragons, Tree dragons, space dragons, small dragons used as pets, even large dragons that help us protect ourselves, dragons are something that we've co-existed with since the dawn of humanity. Our culture is even very dragon-friendly, with everything ranging from beauty contests to flying competitions to battling duels. There's even a special way that countries can settle arguments by having their best dragon-rider combo duel one another. Though the only way any of this can work is when the dragons have a special bond with their human "rider", since after all the dragons are the ones who choose who they're going to spend the rest of their lives with. But now, over the past couple of centuries, thing's have been going wrong. Slowly, more and more dragons aren't choosing people to be with, and instead are roaming the wild more and more, whilst countries are raging war against one another, intent on finding out the true reason behind the dragons' disinterest in the human race. Meanwhile, there have been reports of children going missing. They've always been in random areas of the world, but most of the stories are along the same premise. A child that's somewhere between 3-7 goes off to play in the woods/desert/beach, doesn't come back, etc. The funny thing is, nobody's really paid attention to these cases, what with the wars going on and whatnot, so the children never get found, and are presumed to be dead. But what if these children weren't dead, but instead taken? What if the dragons saw a certain something within that led them to believe that they were the hope of the future, and therefore were taken and raised with the dragon that chose them? Deep in the rainforests of South America, there lies a cave. Dragons are abundant, as they are in any other part of the world, but what sets this place apart from the rest are the small paths hidden in the trees, just big enough for a person to walk on. These paths connect some small tree huts to a large cave in the nearby cliffs, and this is where our story begins. Humans have been in war for so long that even their children are born with some dark intention, something that all dragons despise and never want to partner with. So now, the great dragon Ryo has decided to send the last of the children found this past decade (meaning they are now teenagers) along with their dragons, to try and establish peace among the world. Though normally anybody in their right mind would shoot teenagers walking with dragons, some precautions must be taken. Using the last bit of his magic (oh yeah, that's a thing here) Ryo blessed the dragons with the ability of a humanoid form, though characteristics of their dragon form would still be visible in hair color and eye color, not to mention their humanoid form is much weaker than their dragon form. So, starting in South America, can the last of the 'Riders' along with their dragons save the world? Or perhaps the world is already beyond the point of saving now? ------------------------------------ ~Posting-wise, I'd like it if you had at least a small paragraph per post (there is a spelling check though, so I'm expecting your post to not be filled with errors, though a few is alright) ~I'd like people to be able to post once a week, if you cannot do this please let me know and we can probably figure something out.
