G15 Title.png
 
 
Golden waves crash along a new ocean route,
As dreamers set sail upon the open sea,
Holding true to treasured friendships
And seeking their long lost loves.
One father, Shylock, whose name rings with sorrow,
Walks, haunted by the dark shadow of revenge...
So the dreamers gather with their tangled fates,
Toward Belvast, the land of opportunity and danger.
There, all stories begin and end.
