City of Reign
Angelsey is a small island kingdom, allied with Alexandria and long held by a family with a remarkable history of always having an eldest son to inherit the throne. The current King, Pellinore, may see the breaking of that tradition. He produced an heir, Stephan, but lost that son to a Dragon’s trap (a princess enchanted to slumber lured the Prince to his death at the end of the Dragon’s talons). He then had another heir, Eric, who similarly fell to an evil sea-demon’s machinations (transforming a mermaid into a human then using the mermaid to lure the Prince to his death at sea). He was then bewitched himself and fathered a third heir, Odo, with an orcish Queen. This did not dismay Pellinore, however, and he raised up Odo as his own. Prince Odo fell in the Worldwound Crusade, causing Pellinore to despair and take up questing himself. Now the King wanders the lands seeking a beast no one but he can see and the throne of Angelsey remains neglected, awaiting an king who may never return.
