The kingdom of Schonheit has seen better days. Under the threat of invasion by the nation of Minuit for the last year, its leaders have had to make extreme sacrifices to ensure its survival. King Faridan has won the war-for now-with help from the nation of Wahrheit, but no one knows exactly to what extent they aided him. But apparently the help they provided must have been potent because the Minuit forces lie in ruins and the king himself is marrying a Wahrheit princess. His wedding feast is tonight, and several prodigious nobles and officials from all over the continent are converging to witness this historic union. Peace seems imminent, and perhaps now, all will be well.
