The Old Kingdom
Greetings Strangers. Heh Heh. “Who am I?”, you ask. I am merely a humble traveling merchant. I go where there is business to find and profit to be made. You, on the other hand, must be coming to this place to seek a little fortune of your own. Searching for glory? power? Perhaps wealth and fame? Maybe sanctuary is all you desire. This place has a way of offering things to those who have the will to seek what they desire. That is how this once prosperous kingdom came to fall.
Ruled by an honorable king, the city thrived with trade, commerce, and peace. The king and his family were always sure to care for the people of their kingdom. Very little war was waged for the king had strong allies who would come to aid should there be a threat from outside enemies. What led to the kingdom’s ruin was not from afar, but from within in the form of a jealous brother. Helping the king’s enemies by sneaking them into the city, the brother of the good king staged a coup d’etat that allowed him to kill his older brother, the king, and his wife. Tragic was the day that this proud city lay in turmoil. Even as the brother took the crown for himself, his supposed allies would still harbor ill will towards the new king. In exchange for their services, they pillaged and stripped the city of all its resources. The townsfolk soon started to leave and look for better homes away from all the trouble that now lay with their city. Few stayed in hopes of rebuilding. Some stayed out of stubborness. A desolate city this kingdom became.
After ten long years there began to shown a glimmer of hope. An rightful heir still lived. With the help of the good king’s trusted guards, the young prince managed to escape his doomed fate. The prince traveled to the good king’s most trusted ally in hopes of finding a safe harbor for his guards and himself. Their he bided his time learning of all he would need to gain wealth and knowledge. He would once again reclaim the kingdom his father once ruled proudly. With the help of his father’s allies, the young prince managed to amass a large fortune over the ten years. Now more older and more wise beyond his years, he built an army that would take back his kingdom and rightful home. Managed mostly of mercenaries and cuthroats, but with the trusted guards of his father to help take leadership. Like his father before, the prince swiftly and cunningly averted his enemies and toppled his uncle off the throne of his father’s kingdom. The false king’s allies were scattered back to their own homes not caring too much of the kingdom’s fate. They had already stripped all that they could from the once prosperous kingdom. All that was left is as you see it now, a kingdom of ruins.
Far has spread the word of your exploits while in the young princes army. Now the prince has become king of his home. Much work is there to be done still. Perhaps that is why now he calls you to appear before him? Troubled times still lay ahead for this newly reclaimed kingdom. Many opportunities to be had, fame to be heard to all, and wealth to acquire, Heh Heh. What be to your liking that would beckon you to stay and help this once proud kingdom? What will the new king ask of you for your services? He now awaits you in his throne. See you soon…strangers. Heh Heh.
