Many years ago hidden in a vale of lush green grass and trees there stood a
beautiful white castle. Shining in the morning sun, it made the people of
the land rejoice with feelings of warmth and security. The king was a kind
man and his treatment of the people and the lands in his domain were
reflected by the beauty of the castle. Sadly, the king was not a young man,
or a man of good health, and both of these facts were well-known through out
the lands. It was also well-known that when he passed away one of his two
sons would inherit the kingdom. Richard and Virgil were not bad boys, but
they were jealous of the idea that the other might be king and that one of
them would be passed over.

In the days nearing the king's death, he fell into a deep sleep from which
he was never able to recover, even long enough to name his successor. This
was the beginning of many problems that eventually led to the downfall of
the kingdom. The sons could neither concede the kingship to other even for
the sake of the people, and they soon began to develop hateful, hurtful
feelings for one another.

A demon, drawn to the loathing and want of greedy men, came to the kingdom
and there approached both with the promise of powerful magic that they could
each use to defeat the other. In no time at all most of the castle was
destroyed, as well as the lands surrounding where it stood, and the people
were all either killed or driven from the lands. To this day the lands are
considered cursed and shunned by travelers and homesteaders alike and a
common warning is shared by all who know the lands. Beware the vale for it
has become the War of the Wizards.
