In the realm of knights and kings, kingdoms rise and perish. The ever-warmongering Lorimur and the over-ambitious Karadas, are both struggling for the control over the entire continent. Caught in the middle their conflict, lies the small city-state of Valinor. Being both a buffer state and occupying a strategic position between it's neighbors, it's caught between a rock and a hard plate. If it were to choose to maintain it's Independence, it's inevitable destruction would only be a matter of time. Under the constantly increasing pressure, it decides to become a vassal to Lorimur, the one most likely to win this race.
On a certain day, a group of knights send by Lorimur arrive before the city gates, they call themselves the knights of the Golden Sun. They have come here in pursuit of glory and fame. But make no mistake, they're not some common knight band, they are the high and the mighty. They behave like the lords of the land and countless servants and soldiers follow in their wake. Some may claim a title bought with money has no value, but they'll tell you otherwise, the current market price of a knight title is a whopping a 1000 gold crowns. How could anybody call that worthless?
Some may wonder, 'Nobody has ever heard of them before. Are they here to help or to cause trouble?'
Then they'll politely answer, "Don't bother us with your silly questions and move out of the way, you filthy peasant!"
Note: This is my first story and immediately a contest entry to boot! (Every random peasant could join without any consequences and I was making little progress in my real first story.) This is my entry to cori's contest 'The lords of the land', yes, yes, I shamelessly copied it in my description. Me and the spelling corrector have joined forces in a futile attempt to rid this story of the most obnoxious spellings-mistakes. And as you'll probably discover soon, since English isn't my native language, we failed every time there was no red line beneath the word. Although being a newbie and a non-English speaker, could be some real good excuses to get away with anything (since they're actually true for a chance), please tell me what you liked or hated.
Like every CYS game demands there are multiple endings, aside from a few mid-story endings, there are 7 epilogues. B, C and D, are a win, while E, F and G are a loss and A is the 'perfect' victory. Note that when I say 'loss' it doesn't equal a bad ending, it simply means you failed to achieve the victory condition of the story-game. Even a few short endings, can be considered a 'win', while they're not 'happy' endings.
Above all, this story is meant to entertain and shouldn't be taken too seriously, that's where the 'humor' tag is for. In case you fail to appreciate my twisted sense of humor and start wondering whether that was added by accident or not, your question has been answered.
