Description

Three days ago, the king died, and as law and tradition dictate, a delegation from each of the houses arrived in the capitol for the new king's coronation. The court of Kosht is now in session.

Not all meetings of the court are momentous, but often enough their meetings mark turning points in the kingdom's history. They met for the first time when Alfzar the Conqueror first united the kingdom under a single rule. When the Black King seized the throne, death magic- crazed armies at his back, the court met under banner of peace and were slaughtered. The surviving court met again when Illim White-hand slew the Black King and restored the rightful succession, and outlawed magic forever. (For all magic is death magic, and it is said that its very nature corrupts those who wield it.) The court met when war with neighboring Narvon was declared, and the court met again when the Treaty of Baro├źn was signed and Princess Swyhat of Narvon wed King Eldyun.

Today the court meets again. King Eldyun is dead. Queen Swyhat is grieving. Their son the Prince stands to take the throne.

There are those who have come who wish the throne for themselves, and those who merely wish the new king's ear. There are those who have come to win the knights' tournament, and gain riches for themselves and honor for their house. There are those who have come to find something or someone long-lost to them. And though they certainly won't be doing it publicly, there are those who have come to practice the Black Art, the Great Art, as they style it among themselves: the art of magic.

Though the court comes to session to see the new king crowned, that's far from the only thing on the agenda.

The Right of Kings is a high-fantasy live-action role playing game of politics, intrigue, romance, and death.
