Athan had never intended to become a king; it just sort of happened. One thing just seemed to lead to another. The chance for Athan’s band to steal a fortune in gold from the Archimedean Empire seemed too good a chance to pass up. Fleeing the Empire’s pursuit over the mountains, Athan and his men captured a snug little castle called the Hold from a brutal brigand. It seemed like a good idea at the time; just a nice place to hide out for a while. Little did he know that the Hold came with a kingdom attached.
Now Athan and his men have to defend what they have taken and Athan has to learn how to be a king. And the men and women of his new kingdom of Dassaria had to adjust to their New King and start to build their own lives in a whole new way.
