Wits Posted March 2, 2013 Report Share Posted March 2, 2013 I will post some notes about the main plot here from now on - might make it easier to get the big picture. Grand Narrative: In brief: It looks like Stephen Eruditus the Jerbiton Archmage and Stephen Langton the archbishop are conspiring with the king of France to invade England. There used to be a problem to that: No foreign army could invade England while three holy crowns were safely buried. Now one is not. One of the crowns was buried somewhere near Libellus and Long Melford. Edith and Anna's family guarded the crown. Stephen the archmagus manipulated their dad to dig it up. He went off to Tribunal with it. The crown was originally used to crown King Edmund 350 years ago at Bures. Stephen Langton the Archbishop sent Gui with a few monks to Bures chapel to avoid the curse of Saint Edmund for having the crown dug up. There is a chapel there called the chapel of the crown. Now King John has vanished and is believed by many to be dead, and the Archbishop will probably return to England Since the game started the Barons have forced King John to sign the magna carta, and then when he tried to go back on it they rebelled and have raised an army, and John has fled in to hiding or died. No one is quite sure where he is. KIng John has recently lost Normandy, Brittany, and much of his continental lands. He still has Gascony, but really the French are taking masses of Angevin lands from King John. He is desperate to reconquer these dominions of the English crown, before he only has Gascony and Calais left Remeber France is until about ten years ago a tiny little state with claims to a lot of land but no real power, and much of what we called France today is ruled by England Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
