Mortal Conquests of the Dark Ages - The Wayfarers
A time has come when legendary creatures will rebel against the encroachment of humankind. Their struggle is a desperate attempt to save their races from simply becoming fairy tales of the humans who fear them. There is hope for some, but not all will prevail. Medieval Britain is in turmoil. The governing council of Wynelvenest has been overthrown, and the new elf king has declared war upon all of humanity. Poverty, famine, and uprisings plague the land.
This is the compelling story of a young boy who must survive in a world that history will forever deem as "The Dark Ages". Hezekiah "Zeke" of Dumnonia is a simple farm boy who must flee his home after accidentally killing his cruel stepfather. Zeke's flight takes him to the wondrous city of Haven's Rest where his rotten luck steadily worsens when he again breaks the law by freeing a "nefarious" Halfling sailor from the hangman's noose. Fleeing the city, the two begin gathering about them several unlikely wayward companions as they travel across the realms. Together they will discover the true meaning of friendship.
