He sat looking out of the stone-framed arch window of the palace throne room. TecDemon. Duke of Teclessa, the western country on the island of Norttl. He had been raised on the tales of how these lands were forged from bitter waste to prosperous country by his ancestors from his father. The young TecDemon modeled his life out of these fables until the day he became ruler. His aspiration to travel the world and conquer its adventures crumbled into his reality of the lifelong responsibility he would face. Over time, he took all that he had for granted: his lands, peoples, riches, even much of his own person. His sense of royal duty challenged every day by his inherited love of adventure. It was always pulling him in a way he did not understand, a way that he almost feared.
