Arth Has A Visitor
It was like any other day. ARTH came home from school, dumped his school bag in the corner and began playing his favorite computer game. His mother tried her best to make him do his homework first, but ARTH wasn't going to listen, so she finally gave up. It was like any other day.

Except that today, as Arth was playing the game, a small digital figure suddenly burst onto his screen from nowhere, and stopped him in the middle of the game.
No matter what Arth tried, this creature wouldn't go away.

Finally, when Arth gave up in frustration, the creature spoke:

"Hello, Arth", said the creature.
"Who are you?" Arth asked in surprise.
"I have been looking for you", said the creature.
"What do you want?" asked Arth.
"I want you to join me on an adventure", replied the creature.

Arth was now curious. He always wanted to go on an adventure, like the children in storybooks. But he was a practical young boy. "How can I join you? I am outside and you are inside the computer!" exclaimed Arth.

"You are only limited by your imagination", said the creature. "Imagine you are with me and it will be so", he added.

Arth used his imagination and lo and behold he turned into a graphical image and saw himself standing right beside the creature inside the computer.

"Hello", said the creature with a smile "I am Uruk".
"Where are we?" asked Arth, looking around. He noticed they were standing next to a lone tree. In front of them were the ruins of an ancient city in the middle of a desert. Near the ruins there were shepherds, grazing sheep and goats. Arth had seen such scenes on television before.
