The Land of DragonsEdit
- Main article: The Land of Dragons (tale)
Before the Battle for Deltora, Deltora was known as The Land of Dragons. During this time, the Toran's and the dragons sensed that a great terror was coming. They knew the land was changing and could smell it in the air. The Torans had cast fortune-telling stones and the stones meaning fire, water, death and marriage fell together often, but they did not know what to make of it. One morning, on a beautiful clear day, they dragons knew it was time. Suddenly, in a great rush thousands of dragons took to the air. The sky was dark with the dragons and the tribes gaped in terror. The northern shores turned white from the foam the Sea Serpents had made trying to escape.
Joining of PirraEdit
With a great roar, the seabed in the north split and fire belched upwards, boiling the sea. The air was thick with steam and the island quaked. New hills formed, great cracks formed and hills were destroyed. Pale, slimy, dead things feel from the sky like rain. The sound was frightful. Thinking their world had come to an end, the people fell to the ground with their hands covering their ears. Those who were left alive saw that the northern coast was gone. Instead, a great barrier of mountain and rock had formed into one peak; an unbroken line from east to west.
Only the dragons, who flew high in the sky, saw what laid beyond the mountains. They saw that the space between the Land of Dragons and the island to the north, Pirra. disappear as the cracked seabed collapsed on itself. The two islands collided and were sealed together by the mountains that had formed. The two islands had become one, just as the Toran's fortune-telling stones had predicted.
Uniting of tribes
Battle for DeltoraEdit
