CHAPTER 1


I woke up to see myself in the mirror, my body and large feathery wings, everything a falco should be, like a furry angel. Finally, my 16th Birthday is today, I ran down the stairs to find my father in the kitchen, Waiting to see me.

“Hey son, sorry your mother isn’t here for this, but it’s time.” my father said, knowing what he meant, I nodded. You see my mother died about a year ago, a tribe of orcs raided our small village and she was killed during the confusion.

“Here, this was left by your mother.” my father said as he handed me a small package.

“Thank you” I said as I opened it, inside I found a small booklet. I read the luminous blue letters on the front. It read Auramancer. “It’s a spell tome.” My father explained, I always wanted one of these my father always said someday, but I had always assumed it was simply a joke to get me to be quiet.

“Well, you should be heading off soon.” he said, and I knew he was right, I had a long journey ahead of me. I ate quickly and took the bag he had packed for me “Good bye dad.” I said as I left the door, without intent to return.


I looked through the bag at the gate of the town. I found some food, 50§ (our currency), a hunting knife, and a pair of goggles. that’s odd, goggles? Why would he pack those? Looking deeper I found a small, old folded note.


Hello Sweetie,

I have left these goggles here for you, for your present, they will give you a view of many things. They will show your hunger health and mana also if you set a destination in you mind they’ll show you the way. I know I won’t be there when you leave, but you need a present from your mother on your birthday.

Love, Your Mother Alia.


By the end of the letter I felt the stinging of tears in my eyes. Grabbing the goggles and putting them around my neck I walked out of the village, out of my home.


It was a dark, winding path, but I distracted myself by reading the basic aura spells, learning them quickly. I heard a sound, a rustling, off to the right as an arrow whizzed past my head. I jumped backwards right as three large human men jumped out of the bushes on the side of the path.

“heh heh heh, Look what we found a little boy far from home.” laughed the largest of the thugs as the rest cackled in amusement.

“let’s take care of him!” one of the others excitedly said as they continued laughing, the man then jumped at me, pulling a club from behind his back. I stuck my goggles on quickly to see the display while I dodged. I used a basic ball of my aura, knocking him back into a tree. One more of them jumped out of a tree, landing on top of me, holding my hands down.

I attempted to released a pulse of aura to hit him off of me, but was only able to disoriented him, barely enough for me to knock him off. I stood up, He was out cold on the ground.

I looked at my health gauge and saw I had barely taken any damage. Suddenly I felt a shot of pain in my ankle, looking down I saw that first thug, who attempted to hit me with a club, stabbing me in the leg. I slammed my foot into his chest knocking the wind out of him. I was taking heavy damage now because of the bleeding.

The final lackey threw a knife at me, making a disk of aura as a shield I block it. As I dropped the shield, I found he was right in front of me. I was hit in the stomach, as I doubled over, I quickly hit in the back and fell down. 36% health now.

I spun on the ground and then hit him in the gut, shooting him with another ball of aura as quickly as possible, he went flying into the boss. 5% aura, damn I still need to handle the leader.

The giant of a man charged at me, I jumped to the side barely dodging him, and hit him in the back. He stumbled and fell, I took my chance and ran forward, seeing his health he was at about 46% I began to feel cocky, I was winning. That's when he threw a knife, I attempted to avoid it, but I wasn’t fast enough and my wing was hit. 42% Health.

Damn, I’m screwed I thought as I used the last 7% of my aura (It regenerates) and launched a beam of solid aura at him. He was slammed into the ground, creating a hole around him. his health was at only 1% I could kill him… I thought. Wait what am I thinking I can’t kill anyone, Could I?

I discarded the thought quickly and tied them all up. I signaled for a caravan that was passing by in under an hour, they took the men and gave me a reward. I found out they had a 25§ bounty on their heads, a piece. I took the reward and decided to set up a camp immediately given it was becoming dark, and decided to rest.
