    On a sunny afternoon a small bottle had washed up on the shore. Curiosity aroused, Akimbo examined the tiny bottle and noticed that a piece of parchment lay rolled inside. Carefully he managed to remove the brittle paper. To whomever may find this message, "We, the shamans of Turtle Island, face one of our greatest crises ever. A zealous dragon by the name of Fang has used his powerful magic to enslave the inhabitants of our island. It is only we twenty shamans that have been spared, but our powers are limited and we have failed to lift the dragon's spell. Please, we beg the help of any who are able." Turtle Island. Akimbo's eyes turned westward to where the island lay. Though the letter did not reveal the specifics, Akimbo could imagine in what pain the shaman must have been. That decided it. Akimbo stood up, brushing the sand from his clothes. He could not ignore a call for help.
