The Hundred Year War
Welcome to Terra, a world comprised of war torn kingdoms and magical wonders. Our story takes place in the kingdom of Serita, after it ended its war with the two other kingdoms, Erillan and Dwogan, in what is known as the Hundred Year War, and is facing economic problems and political strife. Adding to its problems is the recent death of the king, whose heir is only an infant. This meant his guardian would actually reign in his stead as King. The Queen's elder brother Aidsung was designated as guardian, but fearing an oppressive reign from the Queen, the parliament ousted the potential prince. Appointing instead the King's cousin, princess Olivia, and Prince Ravenwell as the guardian. Prince Ravenwell and Prince Aidsung are both respected generals who proved themselves in the Hundred Year War. Prince Ravenwell has the support of the powerful Nobles, but disenfranchised Nobles and knights clearly support Prince Aidsung. The Black Dragon symbolizes Prince Ravenwell and the White Dragon symbolizes Prince Aidsung. A regent is needed to rule in place of the prince, or the Princess to take the throne, but the kingdom is split between Princess Olivia and Duke Aidsung. The conflict leads to what will later be known as the War of the Dragons.
