the beginning:

Where do you begin a story as old as time? In the middle, of course. We open our book to find the start of a darkly forbidding magic ritual -- a summoning, betrayal, cunning, and evil. A creature is summoned, though of what nature we know not of.

We find that the summoners intended to summon death -- and later, fascinated, we find that they summoned something else instead. Fascinated, we find that the summoner had caught the Dream-king through his invocation! Imagine the Dream-king, naked and trapped in a glass ball, helpless. He doesn't eat, speak, or do anything but exist really. The impact of his imprisonment was felt everywhere -- people started to fall asleep and never woke up again. All because one man wanted to live forever.

The story begins.
