As a child, Oberon loved to read. He read everything that came his way and loved going to his favorite bookstore. One day, he realized that he had read everything there was in the bookstore. He asked the owner whether there was something that he had not yet read. The owner replied that he had a new book, and handed little Oberon a book called "Balur”. The owner sold it at a discount, for only 10 Sapphires, but he warned Oberon to never open the first page of the book.

Oberon returned home, read the book from cover to cover and was quite happy. He still wanted to know, however, what was on the first page. One day, he could not resist the temptation, and he opened to the first page. What he saw on that page made him drop the book in horror.

What do you think was on the first page?

The authors of the five wittiest replies will receive 2,000 Sapphires each!

As Oberon looked upon the first page he saw a glimpse into the future, 

A world which was ruled by hell bovines... And among those bovines was the cow king, this isn't even the worst part... As he read further down he realized the cow king surpassed him in almost every way. The cow king was immune to lightning, not a particularly useful quality in Stormfall but one to be feared non the less.

The book was written by the king and should be given to all citizens for free.

He found a binding contract he would have to be Administrator of Stormfall:Age of War  for the rest of his days.

He realized, at the tender age of 9,  that this mesmerizing book was actually written by the ugliest ogre he'd ever seen.

It proved that those lowly creatures actually already mastered the art of language and happened to be more knowledgeable than him on many subjects.

He then decided, as a matter of pride, to imprison and eradicate them in concentration camps infamously known nowadays as "Balur", the very name of the book which hurt his sensitive ego as a child.

He saw a frog no ordinary frog mind you, for this frog leapt upon the young boy and kissed full on the mouth, disgusting i know but hey it's my story.

What happened next




Yes you guessed it the boy was trapped on the first page as a frog until the next person read the first page.

On the first page with bloody letters was written:

'You will be a nuisance to me and my forces ... My shamans have seen your future and have discovered totems which can sicken all the heroes of Stormfall by spreading diseases! Be warned, Oberon. You can make one decision: Will you start a revolt against Balur where you and all your heroes will die, or do you rather die without any other 'innocent' souls?'

As soon as Oberon read the page with the horrific message, he'd see a little rope with a small bottle as necklace attached to the page. The bottle seemed to have green liquid in it, it reminded him of the poisonous wine he got a couple months ago and thus sent it to his sages, to see whether it was dangerous or not.

The end...?

On the 1st page of the book   ....

The maximum selling price was mentioned, The actual was price was way lesser than 10 sapphires  

and the buyer realized that he was duped ;)

Oberon was horrified to see his own name mentioned on the first page.

He was the unnamed hero of the book "Balur" who saved the the realm of Stormfall .
