This will be a small story a bit bigger than RA:Farmer Rick. There's gonna be some spoilers for other projects for those who are overly concerned with such things.
Really quick summary...
John and Mike Ende are sent to the realm belonging to the planar god, Aavaria, to stop the advances of a hostile planar god, Kalim'Tur. The problem they run into while trying to do this is that they lack the ability to adequately mask themselves from Aavaria's senses. As luck would have it, Rick unknowingly stumbles into their mission while trying to try a meal on the world. After Rick is tricked into promising to protect John & Mike's contacts on the world, the five of them join Aavaria's military in an attempt to stop Kalim'Tur without giving away their true origins.

Okay, HOLD ON JUST ONE MINUTE HERE, Wade! XD I finally realized you'd started this comic and went to read it, and I immediately see that you're using a variation of a race _I_ created. You could've alerted me to this beforehand, y'know?
Oh, and Ch3's music display doesn't change with the music. That needs to be fixed.

John & Mike take orders from "Elementals", correct? While I'm flattered you accidentally referenced my own work, you could've at least told me. I'll assume that these Elementals are far removed from their original homeland of Avalon.
Also, the music displayer in the Ch3 swf file doesn't work right.

You're really jumping the gun more than usual on this one GM. I just mentioned a group name with no details about them whatsoever about them other than the twins take orders from them and Rick's old man hangs with them.
But since it's gonna need to broadened on at some point anyhow...
The Elementals are a group of 8 individual beings (not a 'race' since they existed before the concepts of species and races were made) that were charged with creating planes of existence and creating the planar god(s) that would run said plane of existence. They existed before concepts such as time/reality/space/life/death/thought/insert just about anything here/gods/dimensions/souls/emotions/blah blah blah/good/evil/law/chaos/... More details about them in the actual Legacy books whenever they may happen.
How they came to be IRL...
Shortly after I created Rick's old man way back when I was still in 3rd grade (1988 in da house), I needed more characters to flush out certain requirements. First there were 3, then as time went on the story needed more till there was a total of 8 a few years later. The reason Rick's sword (which his dad gave him) is called the Octagon blade is in reference to the 8 elementals. And knowing is half the battle ^_~
Many people in this world are like slinkies... only entertaining when you push them down some stairs.
