Welcome to the Summerset Isles, a land ravaged by war, now brought together for the first time in history under the rule of King John of the Gerian family. After nearly fifty years of war, all lords now bow to the royal family, and the kingdom has known three years of peace.

The empire barely holds together as powerful lords bear old grudges. Some kingdoms are still reeling from the devastation brought by the royal family’s rapid conquest. Other kingdoms are subject to the king in name only, as much of the Summerset Isles is too wild for the king’s forces to patrol – leading to a rise of corrupt lords enforcing the king’s justice for a price.

This new unification and administration of the realm has lead to several cultural and technological advancements. The cessation of war has made the roads safer for travel, and farming easier. The spread of knowledge through the printing press is changing the learned world; likewise, the use of gunpowder is changing the way wars are fought. New machines are invented daily.

King John is now in the later years of his life, and neither his mind nor his sword are as sharp as they used to be. Ravens carry word throughout the empire, inviting all lords and dignitaries to attend the abdication of King John, and the succession of his eldest son Robert.

Meanwhile, several adventurers sit in a wagon approaching the capital on the day of the inauguration. Their significance is yet unknown to them, as is what role they will play in things to come. Will they bring this empire together, or will they tear it apart? Or will they be distracted by far more fascinating side quests???
