The world is veiled in darkness. The wind stops, the sea is wild, and the earth begins to rot.
The people wait, their only hope, a prophecy....
When the world is in darkness Four Warriors will come....
After a long journey, four young warriors arrive, each holding an ORB. -The introduction.

This is a well. You might think that there is something to it.... But in fact it is just an ordinary well.

Garland: No one touches my princess!! LIGHT WARRIORS?? You impertinent fools. I, Garland, will knock you all down!!

Garland: Do you remember me? I was once known as a knight of Cornelia. Two thousand years from killed me. I am Garland. Oh, you did defeat me. But the four great forces saved me by sending me back through time! Once here, I sent the four Fiends into the future...where they shall once again use the four great forces to send me into the past! In two thousand years, I will remember none of this. But I will be reborn again here. So even as you die again and again, I shall return! Born again into this endless circle I have created!

ending text:

The time loop was severed at last... The endless struggle that raged over two thousand years had ended, and peace prevailed once more.

The light of the four Crystals restored the forces of wind, water, earth and fire.

It was a mere trick of fate that had given rise to the chain of Garland's wrath.

But magnified by the four forces meant to guide our world, that trick of fate also gave birth to the Fiends.

Monsters ran rampant and the world sank into darkness...

But all that is now past.

With the four forces flowing as they were meant, the Warriors prepare to cross time and return to the world they knew- a world where Princess Sarah, Queen Jayne and even Garland himself await.

When was it that time fell into its spiralling loop?

When was that fatefal day?

None can say.

It seemed the cycle into which time had fallen would last forever.

But the bravery of the four young travellers prevailed. They grasped the forces that filled the world with darkness, and used them to restore it to the light.

No one will ever recall the struggles the four endured, for the breaking of the chain means that it never existed.

But in the tales of fantasy that people tell one another, the memory of their deed will live on...

Tales of dwarves and elves, of dragons and shining civilizations that reached for the very heavens even as they fell.

Now they return to us.

With the memory of their struggle buried deep in their hearts, they will quietly watch over the world.

Remember always that the forces of the world must be used as they were intended- that the power of light must never be used for dark, and that the true Crystals reside in your heart.

For you are the warrior who crossed time.

You are the bringer of light...
