Greetings traveller, welcome to the Island. I was waiting for you.
My name is Oracle, and I have great stories to tell.
I can tell you about Alpha and Omega. Past and Future. And if you are one of the 1000 chosen ones, I will tell you the story of Infinity, Apeiron.
I don't want bore you: all of my stories will be different.
Behind the scenes? All is different there, as well.
Sit down, Traveller. Let me start from the beginning of the story...
The island of the Taurus. The city of the Owl. A great war...
The Emissary God knows everything. He’s the protector of the travellers. He will may protect you as well?
The God of the Sea is angry. He expected a sacrifice from the Taurus King. His curse will be Love. And the Problem will arise.
The Goddess of Love is behind everything. She’s playing a game, and she does not care. She caused the Problem, and she will solve it.
The Taurus King is furious. His Queen is unfaithful, his firstborn died. And he has a huge Problem he can’t solve.
The Taurus Queen is in love. But she can’t have what she want. The King of the Labyrinth has an idea.
The Problem is a Monster who needs blood. Is not his fault. He born that way. Half man, half beast - A huge curse for everyone.
The Princess with the Red Thread is the Solution. She’s in love with the man who’ll kill her brother. She will trade his life with betrayal.
The problem is solved. The Sun has arisen. Someone is imprisoned in its own Labyrinth. And the hero will betray his Love.
The God of Wine is watching. And he’s having fun. In the end, he will have the Princess.
The Goddess of Wisdom is sad. She protects heroes, but she’s disappointed. Too much blood, too much betrayal.
The God of Sun is beautiful and hot. He will destroy everyone that will go close to him.
The Owl Queen raised her son alone. She told him he’s a son of a King. And if he was the son of a God?
The Taurus Royal family lost three sons. Two murdered, one kidnapped. They are preparing for vengance, but it's worthless.

The Prince of Labyrinth had a short life. But his ambition will be immortal. Not wise, but brave.
The King of Labyrinth is a true genius. Everything and everyone is connected to him. Yes, Traveller, he's the one.
The Taurus Prince's death caused the war between Taurus and Owl. He was valiant, but another hero clouded his reputation.
Taurus King will be furious for eternity. He was the most powerful man, but he couldn't do anything against a Genius and an Hero. His spouse will be forever ashamed.
The God of War was watching from a distance. He wanted more violence, but his sister was keeping him busy. Love, or Wisdom?
The God of Lightning is the God of Gods. Powerful, crazy and without limits. Many are his sons.
The Goddess of Faith was betrayed a lot of times. But she always had vengance. Poison and snakes are her favourite weapon.
