Good morning all! I hope you are well. Personally at the top. We meet for a new creation as well as the sequel to Pirate: The rise of Darqua.
After a great weekend. Rich and intense. The lessons should now be learned. The mixture of different alcohol is not madness. Sweet white wine remains a safe bet. Always take more appetizers than necessary (pistachio, sausage, etc.). Plan which film we are going to watch rather than spending the evening deciding which film we are going to watch. Never forget your charger.
What about your weekends at the moment? Rather Indiana Jones? Or Garfield?
I’ll give you a revelation. I love the Giant Mickey Parade especially the stories with Indiana Ding. So ok we all read this when we were a child but we have to admit that it is relaxing.
Otherwise I try my hand at a book explaining the works of Van Gogh. I find it interesting when we are told why such and such a great artist is a genius rather than stupidly admitting a truth.
And you, how do you color your days?
Continuation of the Pirate adventure (if you have not read the first part, read the previous article):
Pirate and his crew then arrive on a volcanic island. The ground is purplish gray. The air is suffocating. The gas from the central volcano prevents everyone from breathing properly.
Everything matches. As described on the Baquatinto bas relief (monument hidden in the Amazonian forest that Pirate had discovered with his crew):
The air you won’t breathe,
Lava flows along the keeper.
Purify that purple.
Of a bitter gray tint.
All the sailors they had met had pointed out this place to them, and now he all understood why.
The island gave the impression of having been designed for the volcano.
Pirate assembled a team of three (medic, navigator and fighter). The rest of the crew remains, so as to prevent possible attacks.
To fight against the fumes they bandage their mouths with a wet cloth.
Arrived at the foot of the volcano they equip the captain with a rope so that once at the nap he can descend and ascend without risk.
A wing flap is heard.
“Let’s hurry without being noticed”
But what can it be.
Arrived at the top, an icy wind crosses them and scatter the smoke of the volcano around the island. That is to say the power of the wind.
From the heavens descends a creature that myths know only too well: a Dragon!
It is a dark dragon with dark gray skin metallic as for its belly it is dark blue. These two wings reveal the body of a snake. His gaze is powerful penetrating. Intimidating. He is very confident. He knows himself to be the master and guardian of the place.
“STRANGER! WHY ARE YOU COMING TO ME, DARQUA, BUT OF DESOLATION? WOULD YOU HAVE A PURPOSE TO GET MY GOLDEN SHIELD CERTAIN OF MAGIC? THIS ARTIFACT IS MY PROPERTY!”
The captain explains to him the origin of his quest and specifies that he has no warlike goal, otherwise as he says he would have come with all his crew.
“A SWORD IN VOLCANO! EXCEPT MY SHIELD BELIEVE ME LITTLE BEINGS THERE IS NOTHING! LEAVE OR SUBJECT THE FLIGHT OF MY CROWN”
The navigator then specifies to the creature that its size would not have allowed it to see the stone which hides the legendary artifact.
“GOOD VERY GOOD LITTLE MEN! YOU ARE LUCKY TODAY! I AM MAGNANIMOUS! GO INQUIRY BUT ONLY ONE OF YOU CAN ENTER! THE OTHER TWO WILL BE MY HOSTAGES”
The captain then decides to send there his navigator who has best studied the legend of the Dark Blade.
The dragon then drops the navigator at the edge of the volcano. This one then goes down. It’s getting hotter and hotter. He almost fainted twice. When then does he detect the glittering shield.
There is a tablet next to it:
Then begins a quest
If the blade you want.
Without it, forget the greatness of your dream.
Now that you have the equipment.
Get away from the cold.
Where the crackle of ice never ceases.
The dragon does not notice it, but the navigator grabs the shield (which is actually very light for a pure gold shield) and replaces it with a stone of a similar size. Aware of the risk of his initiative, he then decides to go back as disappointed with his immrnse risk. The completely disarmed captain makes the situation leave again saluting the dragon like a king. Promising him to come back to him once he owns the legendary blade.
As for him the dragon had gone in the skies probably in search of unlucky bird.
They took off. The navigator waited until he was a good distance from the dragon to reveal his find to the chief, again excited by the news. They are advancing. She calls them. Glory is near.
The dragon must have come back and realized the deception. His cry echoed across the skies. Against all odds, they had sworn it.
Peace is the greatest of treasures
