The Beginning (or somewhere near it)
The sun beat down on a long deserted plain. No plants grew. No desert lizards scurried. There was nothing alive. Nothing.
A cat-like creature raised her head in alarm. She could stil picture the plain. "Just a dream. Just a dream." she murmered. "How are you feeling, Mara?" another creature just like her known as an Ethra mewed. "I'm fine, Petro."Mara whispered to her mate, looking at her fat, pregnant belly as she did so."Just fine."
A tall man stood. He was in the middle of a huge jungle. Somewhere in the middle, anyway.Next to him was a tall, spindly creature called a goblin. "There's gotta be some Ethra around here somewhere."the man said to himself. The goblin only grinned. "Meat.Meat."chanted the goblin.
