From publisher blurb:
The king and ruler of the land of Dresaria has just died under dark, mysterious circumstances, leaving the future and leadership of the land in uncertain turmoil.
There is no single clear heir to the throne, as many parties believe they are the best suited and most deserving. Those who believe they are the rightful new leader have come together at the palace to form a tribunal.
There is only a short time left before a new ruler must be decided upon or civil war will almost certainly break out.
