For fifty years, the once peaceful and prosperous Kingdom of Morcalia has suffered under the cruel tyranny of Agranox the Red, a powerful dragon. He destroyed the armies, devoured the royal family, reduced the temples and the mage’s guild to rubble, and demanded ludicrous tributes of treasure and livestock from those who survived his rampage.
This was a dark time, but many found hope in a prophecy given by the oracles of old, just before the collapse of the kingdom. This prophecy foretold a hero would rise to dispel the evil plaguing the land, a young man of incredible courage and skill. Wielding a holy sword wreathed in blue flame, this hero would slay the dragon, restore peace, and become the new King of Morcalia.
The prophecy has now come to pass. Kalben the Brave, once a simple peasant lad, quested to find the sword of legend. Knowing no fear, he ventured into the lair of the dread dragon and slew it himself. The people rejoiced and immediately declared him king.
Of course, the prophecy never said what sort of king the foretold hero would be. Kalben is still a very young and inexperienced man with virtually no formal education and a limited understanding of the world beyond heroic adventuring. If he was to achieve the same success in ruling as he achieved in adventuring, he would need the assistance of his stalwart companions and advisers.
