Before 1.12.2, when you first started the game, the intro video would play (or went in settings to watch the intro) and would make you start in a place called "The Academy Gates". You would see that a monster is attacking the gate, which then eventually breaks and you start a battle between a Battaram. During this battle, Noot teaches you the basics of the game.
Long ago, in an age of magic and wonder
There were six masters wizards, called the Wardens
Together, the Wardens built a super-fantastic castle, and they called it 'the Academy'
A place where young wizards learned the ways of magic...
...and a third...thing...
But one day, one by one, the Wardens vanished...
...and the Academy closed its doors until the day they returned
Now, the Academy needs...a PRODIGY!
Someone of courage! Strength! Character!
Someone just like you!
