Recommended Posts


This story is going to be based on the first series of Deltora Quest created by Emily Rodda. The basic outline of the storyline is mentioned below but if some differences can be made into the stroy to accomodate extra characters and bad guys.
The Story Begins
On his sixteenth birthday, Lief, the son of a blacksmith, faces the greatest challenge of his life. He must venture into the darkest and most terrible places in all of Deltora to find the seven magical gems stolen from the Belt of Deltora. When reunited in the Belt, these gems?an amethyst, a topaz, a diamond, a ruby, an opal, a lapis lazuli, and an emerald?will empower the heir to the throne of Deltora and free the people from the evil tyranny of the Shadow Lord.

The First Gem - The Forests of Silence

Sixteen-year-old Lief learns his parents' deepest secret, and sets out to find the seven gems that will save his land. With only a hand-drawn map to guide them, Lief and his unlikely companions struggle towards their first goal?the sinister Forests of Silence. The gem found here is the Amethyst.

The Second Gem- The Lake of Tears

To find the second stone, the heroes must travel through territory ruled by the monster-sorceress Thaegan and is guarded by her 12 children. Their journey is filled with treachery, trickery, and danger, and at its end they must face the hideous guardian of the enchanted Lake of Tears which is guarded by a mystical Dragon and magics unknown. The gem that is found here is the Topaz.

The Third Gem- The City of Rats

The power of the two recovered gems has strengthened the heroes and given them the courage to continue their quest for the third stone. But first they must find their way to the forbidden City of the Rats, and conquer its evil warden. And now that Thaegan has been destroyed, her children now run the plains in search of the murderer of their mother. And what of the mysteroius underground movement against the Shadowlord? The Gem found here is the Diamond.

The Fourth Gem- The Shifting Sands

The travellers have found three gems. But they cannot rest. The fourth gem is hidden in a shimmering, barren waste, kept jealously by an unknown guardian. Separation, confusion, and strange, terrible enemies await Lief, Barda, and Jasmine in the harsh landscape of the Shifting Sands. Now that three gems are missing, the Shadowlord has begun to get supspicious of the lack of communication from his guardians. But the heroes have fallen into a cunning trap in the city of Rithmere where they have entered themselves into the Rithmere games. The gem found here is the ruby

The Fifth Gem- Dread Mountain

Four gems have been found. Now, though grave news reaches Lief from home, and he longs to return, the quest must continue. To find the fifth stone the heroes must venture almost to the border of the Shadowlands, and plunge into the darkness and terror of the realm of the monstrous toad Gellick and his Dread Gnomes slaves ?Dread Mountain. The Gem found here is the Opal.

The Sixth Gem- The Maze of the Beast

The Belt around Lief's waist now has four gems. The next stone lies hidden in the underwater lair of the hideous and ferocious Glus. Already exhausted, pursued by the servants of the Shadow Lord and pursuing Pirates to find their missing companion Dain, the three companions will need all their strength and courage to face the Maze of the Beast. The Gem found here is the Lapis Lazuri.

The Seventh Gem- The Valley of the Lost

The companions have faced many terrors with strength and courage. Now they are about to meet dark mysteries that strength and courage alone cannot defeat. If they fail, their quest will be lost, and they will remain forever trapped in the swirling mists of The Valley of the Lost. The Gem found here is the Diamond and is the last gem that needs to be found.

The Quests End- The Return to Del

The seven lost gems have been restored to the Belt of Deltora. Now Lief, Barda and Jasmine must find the heir to the kingdom's throne. But the heir has been in deepest hiding from birth, and only the Belt can reveal the hiding place. Shock follows shock as the fury and power of the Shadow Lord himself threatens to destroy the three heroes and everything they love.


I am ready to accept your suggestions for slight changes to the story or characters like names or character classes.

The characters in this story are as follows but these are just the main characters.

LIEF ( I will take the role of Lief because the story focuses on him mostly)
Character Class- Fighter

The son of Jarred and Anna, Lief was born just after the Shadow Lord took over Deltora. He grew up on the streets of Del City, breaking curfew and evading the Grey Guards. When Lief turned sixteen, his father told him the story of his friendship with King Endon, and gave him the Belt of Deltora. Lief then set out on a quest he would never have dreamed possible, armed with a magic cloak sewn by his mother, and a fine sword crafted by his father.

Character Class- Rogue

An orphan, Jasmine was stranded in the Forests of Silence at age 7 when her parents were taken by Grey Guards. Jasmine is used to living by her wits, and she has a very strong connection to trees and animals. Her constant companions are Kree, a raven, and Filli, a small, furred creature. Jasmine joined Barda and Lief on their quest when they came to the Forests of Silence to find the first gem.

Character Class- Fighter

The son of Jarred and Endon's nursemaid Min, Barda was a Palace Guard when the Shadow Lord's evil plans began to hatch. He escaped the Palace, and found safety disguised as a beggar, living outside Jarred's home. Throughout Lief's childhood, Barda secretly acted as his protector, saving Lief from capture by the Grey Guards again and again. Barda would have preferred to search for the gems on his own, but as the two companions venture on their quest, he quickly comes to appreciate the aid and companionship of young Lief.

Several generations ago, a mysterious evil force appeared from the Shadowlands bordering the land of Deltora. A strong blacksmith named Adin, wearing the magical Belt of Deltora, and supported by the seven tribes of Deltora, defeated the evil. But the Shadow Lord waited, and his minions served him secretly in the Palace of Deltora. Over time, the Kings and Queens of Deltora became distant from the power of the Belt and the people of Deltora. Finally, the Shadow Lord returned to destroy the Belt that Adin had crafted, and vanquish the land he had saved.

Guardian of the Forest
A Knight who entered the forests of Silence a Generation ago with two allies when he encountered the fabled nectar of Silence which would grow only every 150 years. He slew his two friends but was not quick enough to capture the nectar. He waited for the nectar to regrowbut died from old age. Somehow The Guardian has risen from the dead as a Spirit in his armour. He wishes to reclaim the nectar to give him life..

Guardian of the Lake
The guardian of the lake is really an elf that was transformed into a dragon by the sorceress Thaegan. His lover was transformed into the lake of tears and when Thaegan was killed they are transformed into their normal form.
