This is an entry into the Misc. Category in the CCCIX and is the first part of a story I hope to continue throughout the contest.
THE MEETING AT SAN KASTEL
San Kastel, or the Oasis Keep, was built around an existing oasis and was meant as a rest stop on the way to and from the Crusades. Now it is used as the Crown Kings' retreat.
On this occasion, the King has summoned his most loyal Lords to discuss the intrusion of two new factions into their territory. With all of the focus taken up by the Vikings, Orcs, Bear Claw Clan, and other barbarians, the King has allowed these new factions to gain a foothold in the land that he once ruled supreme.
A radical new idea is proposed while jesting by the pool that may change everything!
