Planet W-4RD3N, a planet nobody ever took interest in due to lack of resources, keeps a secret. Deep under the surface lies the Warden's Office. Do not be deceived by the name, the Office contains ancient artefacts, mighty weapons and old wisdoms. Yet the Wardens are no more, all vanquished by what they tried to contain, or lost during battle. All but one...
Archibald, the Last Warden, finds himself again in the place he used to call home.
All lights went on. Old computers restarted themselves and a cracking voice could be heard.
"WeLcOME BaCK ARchIBaLD rEEvES."
A tear rolled down from Archibald's cheeks. He remembered once more all he had lost. His friends, his old teacher... And then there was Emilia Anderson who he loved and married, who he saw falling down that cliff while there was nothing he could do.
He decided to cast the pain aside and continue with his duty. He walked forward to the center of the Office, his walking stick slowly transformed into a silver straightsword. He planted the sword in a pedestal, exactly in the middle of the room. For the first time in over 500 years, the Office sends a galaxy-wide transmission.
War, it's a horrible thing. Families get shattered, dreams broken and lives destroyed. Yet I ask you, and I'm directly talking to all who call themselves hero or champion, to join me in my final crusade to put an ancient evil down once more. I ask you to go to war with me, for the sake of those we wish to protect.
My name doesn't matter, but know that I'm the Last Warden, who swore to protect you all, and failed. Now I ask for your help. It won't bring you wealth nor much honor, but it is the right thing to do. It's the only thing to do.
Come to planet W-4RD3N, where I shall I await you. The universe counts on you, I count on you.
