Content of the article: "The Day I Gave Away Two Kingdoms Out of Spite"
Let me tell you the tale of the day I gave away two whole kingdoms to a vagrant!
No shit there I was, a simple lord of the kingdom of Rhodoks. I owned a small well run fief, and I lived well. My force was small but among the best in all the land. So I ended up spearheading most our campaigns against the Khergit. Then one day, after months of war and conquest, I took a city. I did so single handedly, and I did so cleverly. So I requested it be awarded to me.
It was not. His grace King Graveth in his infinite wisdom claimed it for himself.
I am not gonna lie, I felt slighted. I was indeed a bit miffed. So you know what I did? I took the city by force and departed from the Kingdom of Rhodoks with a giant middle finger!
Graveth did not approve of this, he branded me traitor and heretic and demanded my immediate surrender. So you know what I did? So I slaughtered his army to a man and stuck him in my freshly acquired prison cell.
Then I went to war with the Khergits, and I took..
I took cities! I took fortresses! I took towns! I took their lords and their men! I took their capital and I built myself a kingdom of my own. Out of spite!
Then I turned my eyes on my old kingdom, the Kingdom of Rhodoks. Cuz, dear reader I have to admit, I was still angry as all hell.
So you know what I did? I started taking their towns too. Up until now I had just defended myself against their futile attempts to save their imprisoned king. But now they faced my full vengeful wrath. And they did not stand a chance. I massacred a entire kingdom and all it's people and then I took their towns and forts. I took their cities. And I took their capitals.
I took everything they had.
So what did I do, now that I had the largest kingdom in the known world out of spite? I gave it all away. I found Lord Kastor of Veluca, a claimant to the throne of the Kingdom of Rhodoks with narry a penny to his name. A disgraced lord who was once to be king. And I made him one.
I gave him two whole kingdoms, united under one banner. I gave away the strongest economical power in the world to King Graveth's rival out of spite. Cuz King Graveth slighted me. And for that slight I upheaved the very balance of the land!
And it was worth it.
- How do y’all feel about giving players different versions of history?
- Civil War?
- What sort of alternative items can serve as a badge of office/authority for a true heir to the kingdom?
