Dark Horizons of Fax
Sequel to True Heir
70 years have past since the Assassin King Clausius killed his brothers to assume the throne and he was deposed by the only other heir, once-bastard-son to King Gyranth, now True King Grey. It is now 499 AM and a King Aed, son of Allen the Righteous son of Grey the True, sits on the throne, however whether he is ruler is questioned by his people. An ‘Adviser’ was appointed by some of the nobles when the Young King Aed found himself on the throne at the age of 16. At first he refused but when an odd man was suggested by one of the western Nobles, the king suddenly accepted. Suddenly King Aed shrunk the army, declared a golden age of peace and prosperity.
While the kingdom had been peaceful since the rule of Grey, many of the people were unsettled by the sequence of events. Some of the people are fine to laugh and drink, but some are keeping their eyes and ears open. Rumors float in from incoming merchants of wasted land not far outside the walls of the kingdom. More and more people are immigrating into Fax, and some of them look half starved and terrified.
