Tournament of Prosperity Performance
The Kingdom of Wheaton is a peaceful realm ruled by the good King William. The Kingdom is divided into four Baronies. The Baron of the North, Baron of the South, the Baron of the East, and the Baron of the West each rule a portion of the Kingdom.
Every year the King hosts the Tournament of Prosperity, where each Barons brings a champion to compete. The Barons search the world for unique combatants from faraway lands. Each year the winning Barony is given a chest of gold, and the King must drink a toast to the tournament’s winner.
Last year, King Leon invaded and conquered the previously-peaceful Kingdom of Wheaton. Behind the scenes, the Barons of the East and West work to bring back King William and Queen Grace. Eventually, even the Barons of the North and South are ready to get rid of King Leon’s tyranny. But can anyone save the Kingdom? Will Wheaton’s champions be able to avert disaster? What about the Fool, the Witches, or Rumpelstiltskin?
