BENONOCH is an executioner who wants out of the family business. Unfortunately for him, the Kingdom of Nocturnia is in shambles and its trying its hardest to pull him back into a life of violence.
NOCTURNIA IS A KINGDOM IN SHAMBLES.
All of their rulers are dead or missing. To make matters worse, they are under
the constant threat of imminent attack from their arch nemeses in SINISTERIA.
They need leadership - and fast. Many are vying for a say in the Kingdom’s course forward including their FIERCEST WARRIORS, their CLERGY, their STABLE MAIDENS,
and even some INFLUENTIAL TOWNSFOLK.
One person they are NOT looking to hear from is their EXECUTIONER,
BENONOCH, and that’s just fine with him. Recent events have him
distraught and wanting out of the family business. He’s forsaken his axe,
desiring a simpler, less public life, away from violence.
Will the Nocturnians find the leader they need? Will Benonoch find the
peace and solitude he seeks? Or will the disintegrating situation in their
kingdom make them all have to reconsider? Their lives may depend on it.
