    Summary

    There once was a land with three siblings - two sisters, Izabetta and Lucrecia, and their brother, Runey. As is customary in the land, despite Lucrecia's great age and wisdom, Runey as the only male child was destined to be next in line for the throne. A pity that wasn't what he wanted for his life. A pity that Runey only wanted a chance to play his music, a chance to meet people and get to know them as friends and not as subjects.

    Izabetta, for her part, wishes Runey would shape up and get serious. All the same, she can't deny that she loves her brother dearly, and wishes things could be different for him. But their parents have arranged a ball to find a proper suitor for her and Lucrecia, a man who will spirit them away to rule elsewhere, and she knows she won't be able to protect him anymore.

    Unbenownst to Izabetta and to Runey, someone very close to them plans to take advantage of the party to commit a truly heinous crime. Izabetta finds herself completely unaware until much too late. And then, the only thing to do is flee and never look back.

    Summary

    There once was a tiny, happy kingdom on a mountain top. It was ruled by the benevolent, kind Saint Mary, who treated all her beloved subjects well and equally.

    One of Saint Mary's greatest joys in life was when the little prince from the kingdom in the swamps would come to visit her with his parents. His name was Ogreous, a boy so small that his legs wouldn't even reach the ground when they sat down to tea at a little table for two. He was a loud little boy, an exuberant little boy, a boy with so many hopes and so many promises who loved the kind saint dearly.

    But all good times come to an end. Saint Mary finds herself forced into a marriage with a pope from a more powerful neighboring kingdom, for the sake of peace and her people. She has her misgivings, as does Ogreous, but there's nothing to be done.

    Years pass. The tiny, happy little kingdom on the mountaintop grows much less happy and a good deal poorer with an unkind Pope to rule it. The people suffer without hope. And, one day, a man comes to the castle, a man with a song of torment and tragedy to play. The people listen. Bloodshed results.

    Summary

    A murder has occurred in the court of King Petchu - the lovely and sweet Tia, Shrine Maiden of the Sacred Garden, cut down by an unseen assassin. Her sister, Anphility, soon loses herself to grief, and the normally quiet and reserved girl cuts herself off even further from the people around her.

    At least until she meets Hecato, who comes to her with a plan. A plan to make her sister very happy indeed.

    Vasilia, beloved princess of the kingdom, is distraught to hear about the death of her dear friend Tia. Unthinking in her kindness, she tries to offer Anphility some words of comfort. Initially, Anpility rebuffs her, which only makes Vasilia even more surprised when she later finds the grieving girl waiting in her room that night, her sword in her hand.

    Blood is shed, and two sisters are lost where there should only have been one. In the background, the puppetmistress takes one step closer to domination. Eric sees himself with only one way to thwart her, and it's only a matter of what his best friend will say to it.

    Summary

    Based on the Steve Jackson Games card game "King's Blood", and several of the characters included within it.

    Gustaf the Sun King is a benevolent, fair, and above all merciful ruler. So it's an even greater tragedy that he's fallen so gravely ill, for reasons that no doctor can determine. The kingdom is in mourning, and on the verge of breaking down.

    Gustaf's son, Helious, doesn't think his father has fallen ill. Quite the contrary, he suspects foul play, and he suspects his sister, Hecato, of committing it. But when Helious confronts her about her madness and her crimes, he finds himself in greater danger than he imagined. And the aftershocks of Hecato's plots will be felt throughout all the Royal Realms for years to come. Just because her ambition is challenged at home doesn't mean there aren't plenty more chances abroad...
