The Ambitious Prince
Three years ago the people of the Three Kingdoms were plagued by the rising of the dead.
Constantly attacked, many villages fell silent as a horde of undead grew, unseen
and unheard of by the people. After years of mysterious disappearances and attacks on
many of the people, the Kingdom of Eldonia came under attack. They came at war with a horde of
undead and at the head of the army an evil necromancer named Azreal. With the help of the
mercenary groups the Knights Crimson and the Silver Vanguard the army was defeated
and Azreal captured. Before he could be questioned though he escaped but was recaptured
by a group of adventurers after a chancing meeting on a quest to retrieve an artifact
for the Consortium of Thier. When brought back to the Royal Magus of Eldonia he
was imprisoned to be questioned. It was all for naught as he was murdered within
the confines of the castle in an attempt to keep him from revealing the truth about
the undead invasion. Around the same time the Princess Lessa went missing from the castle.
Investigation into the murder and disappearance reveal a twisted secret about the castle’s
dark past. It had been built atop of an ancient necropolis in which the prince was discovered practicing dark arcane arts as he attempted again to raise a new army of undead in an attempt to ursup the throne from his father and unite the three kingdoms under his control. He rose as a powerful lich from the necropolis as his 5 year plot was finally coming to fruition. Prince Bastion used his power to enthrall his sister forcing her to preform dark rituals and forcing her to be possessed by demons. The Lich was brought to a stop by a powerful royal mage and the same contingent of adventures that brought Azreal to his doom. Lessa was freed from the demons and her brother’s cruel grasp and from that day forward she locked herself in solitary.
