[Page 6]_______________________________________________________ A Legend of Two Realms Many, many years ago it was a time of fantasy and intrigue. Legends passed from generation to generation. People loved to spin takes of great warriors rising up against the tyrannical forces of those who ruled. One such legend spoke of a world that was once divided into two different lands. The two realms existed in harmony: one ruled by humans, the other ruled by demons. There was rarely conflict between the two realms until one fateful day. Six magical stones fell from the sky into the demon's realm. Inscribed on the stones were the Crests of Fire, Earth, Air, Water, Time and Heaven. These crests, when united, would grant unimaginable power. Soon the demons began to fight over these magical crests. The demon realm erupted into civil war. The land was in turmoil over the stones until finally one red demon emerged with five stones by defeating the others. This demon was known as Firebrand. Firebrand was not satisified that possessing the Crests of Fire, Earth, Air, Water and Time would end the [Page 7]_______________________________________________________ A Legend of Two Realms, cont. war. He then challenged the Demon Dragon for the Crest of Heaven. After a long and desperate battle, Firebrand slayed the Dragon and gained the final Crest. But the price of victory was high. Firebrand was critically wounded. Firebrand also did not realize that while he was obtaining the Crests, his success only moved him closer to failure. The jealous demon Phalanx secretly trailed Firebrand and waited for just the right moment. "I have defeated the Red Demon!" Phalanx cried. "I shall reign supreme! With the power of the Crest, both the demon world and the human world are mine!" Firebrand vowed revenge on Phalanx. Phalanx was clever, though. He separated the crests in case someone did rise up to challenge the power he possessed. And now someone has risen to the challenge. The legend of Firebrand is about to unfold in the search of the Demon's Crest! [Page 8]_______________________________________________________ Firebrand The red demon awakens to excude revenge on Phalanx and recover the stones of the Demon's Crest! It's up to you to guide Firebrand through the demon realm to locate the stones and gain spells, potions, talismans and coins.
