After a civil war twenty years ago, the land of Prymeryon comes to relative peacetime on the brink of yet another war. a good and decent king now rules the Crimson Throne as shadow, deceit and political intrigue scour royal corridors. Daggers lie waiting to plunge yet halted by northern steel. in the north, a great prophecy calls to a humble servant whilst the lords of the North must heed the call of southern woes. In the east where warm fertile lands lie with blooming flowers, summers last longer than winters, and rich lay warm and cozy a lion waits to fend off the Gryffon's shadow with tooth and claw.
