...there lived a young king that ruled over a kingdom of light and life, of joy and music. The kingdom was named Everbright after the glow of the palace under a brilliant sun. It's people were hardworking and honest, filled with a happiness that was rare indeed in a world of trifling economies and crumbling governments. Everbright was the pinnacle of prosperous society and ever surrounding land yearned to be as fortunate as those who lived within pearled walls. But there was sorrow as well. Treachery and treason lies behind the back of King Richard, a kind, gentle and benevolent king oblivious to the evil workings of those he trusts. In his search of a bride to put his mother, the Queen Regent at rest in a comfortable retirement, the young monarch will discover the true meanings of deception laced with the gentle promises of true love. Our fairy tale begins as many do, with a troubled girl and a troubled king destined to cross paths. Information on Everbright, the characters, maps, and more can be found in this thread.
