The Beginning of an Adventure
Two young dragons were walking through the clearing at the Artisan Homeworld. One was purple, with yellow wings, orange wing membranes, a yellow underbelly, yellow curved spines, yellow curved horns, and a spiral tail blade. The other was light blue, with a yellow underbelly, light blue wings, purple wing membranes, dark green spines, straight silver and black horns, and a curved scythe-like tail blade. There were several dragons being interviewed. Spyro saw a sheep and decided to chase it.
Iseras saw what Spyro was doing and decided to turn it into a game. Iseras chased the sheep to Spyro, who charged it and knocked the spinning sheep away. The two fell laughing before Spyro investigated the interview. "Gnasty Gnorc is a simple creature. He is contained in a remote world, and no threat to the dragon kingdom. Besides he is ugly." Several beams rained down out of the sky and froze the dragons. Spyro avoided the attack, and well as Iseras. "Looks like we've got some things to do." Spyro ran off with Iseras chasing after. "Hey brother, wait for me!"
They ran to where they saw Nestor last, only to find a crystal there. There was a platform underneath the dragon crystal, and Spyro and Iseras approached carefully. They sniffed the statue, and Iseras circled around it. "How do we get him out of there Spyro?" "I don't know Iseras." Spyro inadvertently stepped on the platform. The platform glowed and the crystal stated to break apart. They ran away, only to see Nestor again. "Nestor!" they shouted in unison. Nestor looked at his paws before saying, "Iseras, Spyro thank you for releasing me. Free the other dragons in the Artisan Home and collect our gems from the Gnorcs." "What about Gnasty Gnorc? I'm going after him." said Spyro. "Find dragons first. That's all I can tell you." and Nestor left for the Elder Chambers.
The two brothers looked out on the landscape. They saw gems everywhere and Spyro spotted a thieving Gnorc. Itching for a fight, Spyro glided down and slashed the Gnorc. It dropped the red gem and ran away. Sparx picked up the gem and gave it to Spyro. The gem disappeared upon hitting Spyro's scales. Iseras glided down and tripped the Gnorc, allowing Spyro to finish it off. It dropped the bag and Spyro gathered up the gems. "Aw man, these things don't fight." said Spyro disapprovingly. "Don't worry, these can't be the only Gnorcs around, and we have other Realms to explore yet. Ain't that right Max?" The dragonfly guardian assigned to protect Iseras nodded. Sparx, Spyro's dragonfly guardian also nodded. "See, even Sparx agrees with me."
They saw another dragon near the waterfall and Iseras stepped on the pedestal. A red dragon emerged and said "Thanks guys. Make sure you keep your dragonfly guardians strong. They love butterflies." and the dragon also left them. Iseras saw a Gnorc and said "My turn." and charged the Gnorc. It saw him and cringed up in fear. Iseras hit the Gnorc which disappeared in a puff of smoke and a single red gem appeared. Max collected the gem and gave it to Iseras. "You're right. These things are cowards and weak." They saw two Gnorcs sitting and talking to each other near a portal. "You take the one on the left; I got the one on the right." "Right." Spyro ran up to the left one and breathed fire on it, causing it to burst into flames and be reduced to ashes. Spyro gathered the gem when he heard Iseras go "whoa!" and saw him tumble into the portal that read "Stone Hill" Spyro sighed over his klutzy brother and flew in after him.
"Oof!" Iseras landed hard on the ground, and Spyro glided down. "Nice landing ace." Iseras groaned and got himself back onto his feet, only to get knocked aside by a bull. "Finally, an enemy that fights back!" Spyro breathed fire, killing the bull. "These things are weak." Iseras trotted back over and Spyro saw that Max was blue, when he was supposed to be gold. "Ouch. Those bulls hurt." Spyro grinned and ran off to collect the gems that were lying around. While Spyro's back was turned, Iseras crept up on him and tried to scare him. Spyro saw him coming and moved aside, causing Iseras to smash through a chest and into a wall. The chest blew apart in a shower of splinters and a blue gem popped appeared. Max collected the gem and gave it to Iseras, who was shaking off the impact with the wall. Spyro was laughing so hard that he could barely breathe.
"It's not funny. That hurt. Come on, let's see if we can't free the dragons here and retrieve all of the gems." They ran around collecting the gems until they found a well. Spyro looked down it, and accidentally fell down it. "Smooth move" said Iseras before he too fell down the well. "Smooth move." "Hey look." Iseras pointed to a dragon crystal and a chest. Spyro gave Iseras a key that he found and stepped on the platform while Iseras unlocked the chest. The dragon emerged and gave a hint on where to find butterflies. He flew out of the well and a magical spiral appeared. Iseras walked into the spiral and he was lifted out of the well. Spyro followed and they continued to a tower.
They saw bulls and some kind of bird creatures wearing shepherds clothing and carrying a shepherd's staff. "Which one you want brother?" "I'll take the shepherds; you take the bulls. Make sure not to get hit again." Iseras grinned at his brother and ran off to fight one of the bulls while Spyro attacked a shepherd. Iseras clawed at the bull, making it retreat into a corner, where Iseras bit its neck. He collected the gem and ran off to fight another bull.
Spyro finished off the shepherd he was fighting. He quickly found out that the shepherds used their staffs to fight when he got hit by one. Spyro removed his tail blade from the dead shepherd and moved to fight another shepherd. He jumped over the staff and flamed the shepherd's clothing. The shepherd ran around before dropping dead and Spyro ran to collect the gem.
Iseras rejoined Spyro, and saw that Sparx was blue as well. "Too slow?" joked Iseras. "Try avoiding those staffs. They are fast." said Spyro. They scaled the tower and freed the dragon on top. He told them that there were egg thieves running around with dragon eggs. The dragon left, revealing an egg thief, dressed in blue and holding an egg. Iseras glided over and tried to chase down the thief, without success. Spyro glided over and laughed when he saw Iseras panting and walking back to Spyro. "Your turn brother." and Iseras collapsed to rest. Spyro chased the thief around and found out how fast those things were. Then the thief tripped over Iseras, who was still lying around, and Spyro attacked the thief.
The thief tried to get away, but was killed before he could escape. The egg settled on Spyro's back, who didn't know what to do with it until Sparx motioned for Spyro to follow. They came to a dojo where the four dragons they rescued were waiting. "You found an egg! Thank you!" The dragons took the egg and placed it on some bedding. "I see you also found all of the gems here. If you two will place them in this enchanted chest, you can be on your way." Iseras walked forward and placed all of the gems he found into the chest. Spyro did the same, and they were guided to a portal back to the Artisan Home.
