The Invincible Lords of Nature!
On a distant Island a long time ago, the story of Gormiti begins...
The magnificent Island of Gorm was once inhabited by peaceful nature loving
people. They lived peacefully under the guidance of The Old Sage, keeper
of secrets and magic, in their village at the foot of Fire Mountain a
massive, dormant volcano that had never threatened the peaceful Island...
until now. One day Fire Mountain showed its fierce nature by exploding
through the earth and into the air. The once green and lush land transformed
into a black, burnt, desolate waste area. From the ashes rose strange
creatures, moulded from the heat of the lava and led by Magmion, lord
of evil. These creatures of fire were called the lords of Magma and Magmion
craved the souls of the defenseless Gormiti.
The prediction was coming true "From the deep, dangerous creatures
were rising. They would sweep the land, good would then return and battle
a fate worse than extinction."
Time passed and the lava tribe ruled the Island of Gorm unopposed. However,
without opposing enemies, they starved. Their evil energy slowly faded,
and Magmions triumphant laugh became a resentful sneer - his own wickedness
had failed him. But he would not allow anything to end his reign, so he
returned to the depths of Fire Mountain to recharge his powers and await
an opportune moment to launch his attack and finally rule the Island of
Gorm. One by one the Magma tribe followed Magmion back into the volcano,
leaving the Island of Gorm deserted and lifeless.
Time continued to pass and The Old Sage waited, biding his time and mourning
the friends that he'd lost. Legend says that his tears became the magical
blue flame called The Eye of Life, the symbol that inspired The Old Sage
to pursue the renovation of Gorm and its people. A mammoth task lay ahead!
The Old Sage asked the Elements of Nature to help re-create his lost friends
and bring life to a new Gormiti civilization. Combining the Elements with
his magical powers, four distinct tribes were born -
- the people of the Earth - strong and righteous, the children of Mother
- the people of the Forest - wise and tough protectors of the woods
- the people of the Sea - warriors of the Sea, as cunning and quick as
- the people of the Air - guardians of the clouds, agile and cheerful
The old Sage was happy with his work, but he knew that what was stirring
in the depths of Fire Mountain could return to destroy Gorm once again.
Anticipating this, he created the lords. They were larger, more powerful
and had no memory. They became the leader of the tribes. The lords were
not just empty shells, for behind every one of them lay great strength
and passionate souls. They would live and die for their tribes. Whilst
dwelling in the depths of Fire Mountain Magmion's cruel magic became stronger
and more destructive. Very soon he would return to the Island of Gorm,
but this invasion would not be easy as Magmion had learnt that he could
not live without the energy of the Gormiti to feast upon. This time he
had a plan that was more devious than ever before... this time he would
not only defeat his enemies, but control them forever! Time was fast approaching.
Soon, the Gormiti saw trails of red flames coasting across the sky. At
first they believed it was the after effects from Fire Mountain, but The
Old Sage knew better. This was Magmion firing out his tribe from the erupting
volcano. The Old Sage let out a burst of telepathic energy to alert the
lords of every Nature tribe to the forthcoming danger. The lords protected
their tribes in the villages and prepared them for battle. The epic struggle
between good and evil was about to begin again.
Magmion was not about to leave his fate in the hands of his tribe alone,
so he launched a burst of wickedness at every village on the Island with
the hope of turning the war in his favour. This was not meant to destroy
the Gormiti more disrupt their ability to distinguish friend from foe.
Magmion succeeded and every Gormiti village lost trust in each other and
began fighting amongst themselves. Once friends, they soon became bitter
enemies locked in combat.
This is how the Great War began. The four tribes of Earth, Forest, Sea
and Air clashed with lava and volcano. Friends were now becoming bitter
enemies with each other. The good tribes believed that conquest was the
only way to victory, whilst the bad tribes sought total domination, in
line with Magmion's wishes. The Great War of Gorm begun. Tales of the
bravery, conquest and battle between the Gormiti would fill the history
books for a long time to come.....
The island of Gorm is still being destroyed by the battles between the
Gormiti,with no-one as yet emerging the winner. The curse of the evil
Magmion, who had sown the seeds of unhappiness thousands of years ago,
still rages on, with his power and strength increasing all the time. All
the Gormiti have now evolved and every tribe has become stronger and more
powerful. New warriors have risen, but they continue to battle with each
other, still all trying to gain control of the island of Gorm... The island
is about to change forever....chaos will reign again....when the sun goes
down, the island will be covered in darkness...each tribe will choose
a champion who will go forward to fight against th rest in the 'Final
Battle'. The heroes will be called to the ancient plains of Astreg to
face each other in a ferocious clash. Power determination and concentration
are the fundamental requirements of a true champion, one who will be able
to defeat all his opponents and finally bring peace, once again to the
island of Gorm.....the tension grows as the battles come closer but an
evil presence hides in the darkness plotting against peace for the people
of Gorm.....will this island ever be calm again? The future must be decided......
