Weapon Story


 Level 1


One day, a young girl's village was sacked by bandits.  To protect her family, she took up a dagger her father had found in the mountains and killed one of them, an act that shocked her family. But the bandits fled, never to return."


 Level 2


Five years passed.  Then ten.  Then twenty.  Though the family she protected began to grow old, the girl never aged.  Eventually the other villagers began to shun her.


 Level 3


With no one to turn to, she finally left her village and began to wander the earth, visiting many strange lands in the process.  As the years passed, her skill and fame as a master swordfighter grew to legend.


 Level 4


Eternal life, a powerful weapon, and boundless experience---she used these talents to become queen of a nation.  And yet, there was emptiness in her life, for she still desired the kindness her family denied her after that fateful day.
