Midgardsormr tells Euden of "dragalia," the bond of trust between dragons and men which is embodied in pactstones. He also speaks of the first Primal Pactstone, which was lost in battle three centuries ago.
Friends? Hmm. We shared an ideal, once. But how the world has changed... Friends and families take up arms against one another, and that which was laid to rest rises anew. Ever since dragalia was lost, the principles holding this world together have been coming apart at the seams.
No. The stone was lost around three hundred years ago. It was shattered during a terrible conflict. This was not indicative of a rift between us. Man and dragon alike chose to shatter it to avert catastrophe. However, years later, the consequences could be felt. The loss of dragalia slowly changed the world. And now here we are, 300 years later. Dragons and dragonblood fighting amongst ourselves as if we never learned a thing. Yet what appears to be an ordinary war actually reflects a much deeper problem. It is but another sign of imbalance in a world that has lost its symbol of amity.
Indeed. Though the Primal Pactstone was shattered, dragalia did not vanish entirely. Some if its light yet remains. And that light will be the dawn that puts an end to this long night. It may take months, years, or centuries, but balance CAN be restored. All we can do is continue to place our trust in each other until a new pactstone is formed.
Oi! Find those rebels already!
