Story Starter

It was the only place where one was allowed to be themselves. It was filled with wonder, chaos, amusement, and joy. It was visited by children far and wide and only if they knew how to get there. 

Luckily, Sam and Ted were one of those familiar with the intricacies of the best-kept secret of their generation. It was a place one could only visit if they dug to the deepest parts of their imagination. 

The duo knew how to get there and had become the famous magic mountain gatekeepers. They were among the few the renowned fantasy had chosen to guard its entrances. It had been a journey of fighting the most intense creatures and even combating a dragon.
