For most of the past 200 years, the kingdom has been at peace. however, following King Dorian Magellon's descent into feeble-mindedness following the loss of his first wife and son, the crowns grasp up on the kingdom began to weaken. While the kingdom remains intact, power mostly remains in the hands of the kings advisers and his second wife, Vyola Telmond. About five years ago a man appeared claiming to be a descendant of King Roneld Styrn, the last king of the Styrn line before the Magellon family seized the throne hundreds of years ago. Magnus Styrn, dubbed Amgnus the Pretender by most of the aristocracy quickly raised an army of dissatisfied peasants in the Hinterlands to march on the capitol. However, the combined armies of the capitol and the hinterlands crushed the untrained peasant army, and now the forces are closing in fast on Magnus' last stronghold...Overview
