Dreams

The girl is beautiful. Probably the most beautiful girl you have ever seen.
But she seems sad... or afraid. She is caught; trapped in some sort of bubble.
And there is someone standing by her, someone dark - EVIL!

She looks towards you and calls...

ASTYANAX...ASTYANAX!!!

And then, you wake up.

You are Astyanax, a 16-year-old student at Greenview High, and you haven't had
a whole lot of sleep lately. A beautiful girl has been invading your dreams,
along with something sinister. She is being held captive; you're not sure
where. All you know is you're running late for Algebra and can't worry about
strange fairy tales.

Gate to Remlia

As you head home from school later that day, the questions of this morning
appear again in your mind. Who is that girl? And who is keeping her in a bub-
ble?? You're so lost in thought, you barely notice the sky change colors and
the sun become a blinding ball of purple fire. And then, everything goes
black...

Cast of characters

Astyanax: (Our hero!) A freshman at Greenview High, Astyanax has been selected
by the people of Remlia to rescue Princess Rosebud from the castle of the evil
wizard, Blackhorn.

Princess Rosebud: Ruler of Remlia, captive of Blackhorn, but far from help-
less.

Cutie: Friend and advisor of Princess Rosebud. She will be Astyanax's personal
tour guide for his long journey.

Blackhorn: The evil wizard. He has kidnapped Princess Rosebud because he hopes
to drain her magical powers and add them to his own - all in an effort to rule
the world. And he wonders why people always refer to him as the "evil" wizard
Blackhorn.

Thorndog: A heart of stone, a face of bone. Thorndog is the chief lackey, err,
advisor of Blackhorn. A powerful magician with a bad attitude.

Caesar: Monstrous creature with a gland problem. Blackhorn's pet. Also known
as Gremlin-face, The Thing That Walks Like A Chicken, and Daphne (but only to
his closest friends).
