Recently, a new world was discovered called Tyrannia.
In the middle of the Tyrannian Jungle, there exists a strange stone pillar
called an obelisk.
The Obelisk has been in Tyrannia since before recorded Tyrannian history.
It is said that it was placed there at the beginning of time. No one knows
for sure what it's purpose is, but there is a popular Tyrannian legend
that seems to point to a grisly fate for Neopia.
"Pillars are placed throughout the land. When Strength,
Wisdom and Faith are joined in the Triangle of Destiny, a terror from
the deep will rise, and Neopia shall choose its fate."
Merely a few days ago, yet another world was discovered,
The Lost Desert. In the desert, another strange obelisk was found. The
locals call it the 'Sacred
Shrine.' They, like the Tyrannians, say that the obelisk has been
there since the beginning of time. Research shows that it was there since
before recorded history. Research has also uncovered an ancient scroll,
which bears the same message as was found in Tyrannia.
After this discovery, archeologists began to examine
the key points of this legend. If you look on a map, Tyrannia and The
Lost Desert are connected by a diagonal line. If you were to connect The
Lost Desert where the obelisk is with the connecting degree of latitude,
you would make an exact 60 degree angle. In normal terms, if you drew
a straight line exactly across the globe from the location of the Lost
Desert obelisk, so it looked like this: _________ , you would get a corner
of an equal triangle. If that wasn't strange enough, written on each obelisk
is a word that, until the discovery of the legend, made no sense to archeologists.
On the obelisk in Tyrannia is the word "Strength." On the obelisk in The
Lost Desert, the word "Faith" is written. The thing that baffled the archeologists
the most was the fact that both these words were written in Neopian. Neither
civilization had ever used Neopian until they were discovered and taught
the language. Tyrannia still hasn't quite gotten the hang of it.
This has made archeologists wonder: was the language
Neopian used throughout the globe years ago? This is doubtful, since there
is no record of Neopian ever being used in countries other than Neopia
Central. If it had been, there would be written accounts in Neopian, since
whoever engraved those obelisks could obviously write. Neopian has only
been developed as a language in the last 2000 years. Written accounts
in both Tyrannia and the Lost Desert go back over 5000 years, and in all
the accounts of the obelisks, the words engraved on them were included.
Therefore, these words were engraved before Neopian was a language.
So the obelisks remain a mystery. Were the words engraved
by some other beings? Is the legend true? Where is the last obelisk? All
these questions will, for sometime, remain unanswered. If the legend is
true, we can only hope that we make the right choice in deciding our fate.
