King Wilmgard is dead. The cause was conspiracy, and his castle was rotten with it. It's kind of ironic, in a way; the most beneficent and beloved ruler in centuries, undone by the corrupt ambitions of his most trusted peers. But the tragedy didn't just end with him. The country's demise was almost as brutal and merciless as that of its king. The Knights of St. Celestina - along with anyone else loyal to their murdered leader - have been exterminated, right down to the last squire.
