Prolifia is restless. With its military disbanded, mercenaries are the only thing standing between the Kingdom and its expanding neighbors. Civilians whisper words of rebellion, and cities are no longer considered safe. As the taxes rise to meet the Crown’s demand, the peoples’ faith in their rulers falters, leaving the King and Queen vulnerable to attack.
