Ned! Arya! Come quick! I've received some news of dire importance!
What's going on, Professor? Is it about dragons? I hope it's about dragons...
How did you guess? In any case, I was given a message by the Hermes Dragon: It appears that Chronos, the dragon master of time, is in need of our help.
The events at the Golden Pyramid appear to have caused a RIFT in space-time! We need to make sure nothing dangerous comes through.
While Chronos tries to fix it, I'm sending you two and your Trainer friend into the Rift to investigate. Who KNOWS what sorts of wonders await you within?!
"Wonders" is an interesting way of saying "dangers," Dad. *sigh* At least we have another powerful Trainer with us... Are you ready?
Holy Chronos, Ned! We've been on a lot of crazy adventures, but I've NEVER seen anything like this! It's like Mount Dragolympus, but... mashed together!
I REALLY don't like the sound of that!
Aw, Ned, don't be scared. The Hermes Dragon is here to help us... and our Trainer friend too! Now let's explore!
Brant! Is that you? How did you manage to get inside the Rift? It's too dangerous for you to be here!
Quiet, Dragon Girl! I snuck in alongside you because I'm... conveniently sized!
M-m-more importantly... what in the name of Dragolandia is THAT?!
You mean this dragon I found? I dunno! But it looks powerful, and if I can beat you and take it back to the Vikings -- I'll finally be a REAL villain!
Drat! I guess this dragon's no good. Just you wait -- I'll get you, and capture all the weird dragons in the Rift for the Vikings!
Brant, wait! I'm too scared to chase you!
The Hermes Dragon seems confused... Oh! I get it. Brant's dragon looks a lot like the Hades Dragon Hogwin and I found on Mount Dragolympus!
Hermes Dragon, you know the Hades Dragon, don't you? But this one looks so strange... Is it even really the Hades Dragon we know?
Wow! Have you guys ever seen dragons like these? Even the Hermes Dragon is in disbelief!
I wonder... Dad said this Rift was caused by a break in space-time. Maybe that means dragons from other dimensions were able to get inside...
Fighting super-cool dragons from another dimension? How can I pass THAT up?! Come on; let's go!
Whew. We're lucky those dragons didn't use any crazy, mind-breaking alternate dimension attacks or anything...
A dragon is a dragon is a dragon -- no matter what dimension they come from! I hope we can meet them all again.
*sigh* I guess it's what Dad would want...
Look, guys! I found a key... I wonder if doors here work like normal or if they'll send us into some endless space vortex or, or--
Only one way to find out! Here, Ned, your hand is shaking -- why don't we let our friend do the honors?
How about that, Ned? We didn't get sucked into the vacuum of space after all!
Darn. I was kind of hoping that door would just lead us back home...
Let's keep searching the Rift. Keep an eye out for anything suspicious, Trainer!
EEEEEK! Wh-wh-what kind of dragon is THAT?!
Oh, Ned! It's just the Poseidon Dragon -- the Divine Dragon of water from Dragolympus. I wonder what it's doing here. Any ideas, Hermes Dragon?
It's here to do MY bidding! That's right, scaredy-Ned, I've got a dragon GOD under my thumb, and it only sprayed water at me TWICE!
Ugh, you useless dragon--! Uh, um, I-I mean-- BYE!
Brant, you can't keep tangling with Divine Dragons like this! That Poseidon Dragon isn't gonna tolerate it!
He'll get in trouble if we don't catch up with him... But at least the Poseidon Dragon is safe. Hermes Dragon, do you think it got lost in the Rift?
I wonder if the Rift has been drawing the Divines to it? Like moths to a flame... or dragons to a really, really big vacuum.
Found another key, Trainer? Thanks!
Let's go to the next area, then...
Wooooow. This place is beautiful!
Arya, watch your step! The floor tiles are coming apart!
Sheesh. It's like a full-time job watching over her... Huh? You think I should worry less?
NOW you're gonna get it, you simpletons! THIS dragon looks super cool, and it's gonna crush you! Agh! Stop licking me, Vivid Dragon!
Considering the context, I'm not sure you should be calling us "simpletons"...
That Vivid Dragon is from another dimension, Brant. Are you sure you know what you're doing...? How about a nice how-do-you-do first?
ARGH! Can't you guys just let me take ONE cool dragon back to the Vikings?!
Not if you're gonna force them to battle! They're visitors here, you know!
Bad guys aren't nice to visitors, doofus! Whatever -- I'll be back with even COOLER dragons!
Look Ned, the Vivid Dragon wants to come with us! I can't wait to show it around Dragolandia!
H-hi Vivid Dragon... Do you come in peace?
Whoa. This is ALMOST exactly like depths of Mount Dragolympus! If Hogwin saw this, it'd knock his socks off!
Speaking of socks coming off, it's HOT in here! Where's all that lava coming from? Aren't we in space?! WHAT'S HAPPENING?!
Guess who, chumps? I'm back with the Hades Dragon! God of... um... stuff that's underground, maybe!
Brant, that's not the Hades Dragon! The Hermes Dragon doesn't even recognize it. It's from... somewhere else! We don't know what it's capable of!
We should probably call it something else, right? Oh, how about... Chrono Hades! You know, because of Chronos!
Go free, Chrono Hades! And Brant, you go on home! I'm sure your parents wouldn't want you playing in a time Rift!
I'm NOT playing and you CAN'T catch me!!!
*sigh* Somehow he's worse than the Vikings...
Let's see. Did we pick up a key? Yup! Lead the way, Hermes Dragon!
And not a moment too soon. I'm sweating like a Piggy Bank Dragon!
Wow, just look at that, guys! A beautiful, lush temple in a place like this... I wonder which Divine Dragon it's for?
I'd rather not stick around and find out, if the Divine Dragon looks anything like Chrono Hades...
It's okay, Ned. I don't think the Chrono Divines are interested in hurting us. I bet Chrono Hades just wanted to play with Brant!
U-um... g-g-guys? I... I tried getting this dragon to fight you, but it started shooting blue lightning everywhere! I-I can't stop it! I'm scared!
Th-the Hermes Dragon is frightened too -- and let's not even get STARTED on me! What do we do, guys?
I had a hunch when I saw that that temple... This must be the Chrono Zeus Dragon! The only thing we can do is try to fight it and calm it down!
I-I'm sick of this place AND of you losers! I'm out of here!
Brant, wait! We're running out of places to chase you!
Whew... At least the Chrono Zeus Dragon seems to have calmed down. I wonder if it was just as frightened as us, being in a totally alien place...
Now that we have a key, let's finally grab Brant and go home to give our findings to the Professor!
Sounds good to me. I've been taking notes to show Dad... which is easier said than done considering, you know, all the trembling...
You're doing great, Ned. And you too, Trainer!
Braaaaaant! Where aaare yooou? It's time for dragons and Trainers and wannabe Vikings to go home!
You know, the more we walk around the more I get used to this place. It really IS fascinating!
Or maybe it's just the fact there are no narrow walkways over endless abysses in this part of the Rift...
THERE you are, Brant! Are you in trouble with another Chrono Divine?
N-no... It saw me get scared and tried to take me under its wing...
I think it wants to battle you to make sure you're strong enough to take me home... N-not that I need to be chaperoned!
See, Chrono Aphrodite? We don't want to hurt Brant -- we just wanna take him home. And we want to thank you for watching over him!
A-and if you and the other Chrono Divines need a place to stay, well, Dragolandia is pretty nice!
Wow, Ned -- that was really brave of you! And I agree! The dragons here could have gotten lost. Why don't we give them homes?
(I kinda just wanted to ask the Chrono Aphrodite Dragon who my soul mate might be, actually...)
Welcome back! I'm glad to see Chronos retrieved you all in one piece... and with new friends! Your excursion was fruitful!
It was absolutely amazing, Professor! We saw dragons from all different dimensions!
But we still don't know where they came from, or even what they are exactly... and we have no idea what could come through that Rift into our world!
Quite right, Ned -- the whole thing bears further study... of the serious sort! For now, let's welcome our new dragon guests.
