Abstract: Defender of the Crown
It is a dark time in the history of England. Your liege, the King, has been assassinated, and the kingdom is in turmoil. You must defeat the Norman oppressors, as well as rival Saxons, to unite all of England under Saxon rule and be crowned the new King. The quest will take you from mighty battles in the open field, to fierce combat inside enemy castle walls.
Experience the rich sound and regal pageantry of a time when average men rose above their peers. With strength, courage, and passion, you too can
join in the mighty crusade and become a Defender of the Crown.
