Lanawynn is a small, but lush and fertile valley. People come the surrounding lands to battle over the rich lands for one of the two rival kingdoms struggling for control: Lucrus and Perdur. Long have they fought, but the Lucrans are in turmoil. Their king, Venetus, is growing old and his only heir, Perdus, has been inexplicably stricken ill. It is up to a small band of knights and their squires to save him.
