For several months now the borders of the Kingdom of Stagonia have remained sealed. No one has been allowed to leave . . . and more than a few have been slain in the attempt.
Nevertheless rumors persist that someone attempted to assassinate Koenig Maurice the Vile. If this is true, there certainly would not be a dearth of suspects. Indeed his own malicious family would be amongst the first to be suspected . . . but they would hardly be alone.
Is he alive? or dead? The truth of the matter is not known, but His Vileness has not been up to his usual malevolence of late . . . so who knows?
