They say misery breeds company. On the outland realm of Reign, twisted feudalism gives new life to the old adage.
For the inhabitants of Reign there are three classes of people: the dukes and duchesses, their families and retainers, and the miserable. Reign's various dukedoms surround the steep gray sides of Mount Aerie, all within sight of the Crowned Castle at its summit.
Reign's realmlord, the King of Thorns, is a petty tyrant who sent his Three Knights to tear the ramparts from every ducal castle as a sign of his rule. The King of Thorns believes his Three Knights will be loyal to him always, a belief that may prove his downfall.
