Huge taxes are enforced brutally, the whip finding any who can't pay. Press Gangs steal the young from villagers making them virtual slaves at the castle. Despite several poor seasons of crops, the starving peasants are forced to contribute nearly all they farm to catter for the many feasts at Castle Rodari.
The commoner population of Rodari has had enough. All they require is a strong leader to rise and guide them to reclaiming the kingdom from the clutches of their cruel monarch.
