Product Description

The Plight of a People is an epic of one people's continued journey to survive in an ancient world lush with catastrophe. It is split into three individual stories, each separated by countless generations and connected by the culture, struggles and themes they all share.

In Part I, the story follows disgraced military officer Solinus as he attempts to once again be the man he once was and single-handedly defend his people from annihilation from a hostile group of religious zealots. Nearly 300 years later, Part II follows Emperor Aethon as his struggle to maintain power unleashes a maelstrom of tragedy upon him and his empire. Lastly, Part III occurs over a century afterwards, when King Eulasus begins a war of liberty to save his kingdom from the wrongs brought down upon it by a brutal regime.

Each part is intertwined with the others to craft one story about not just the struggles of the individual, but also the people’s struggle and the relationship between the ruler and the ruled. Vast cycles of oppression and the constant presence of great omnipotent gods look over the many eons of war that rule this ancient world. All this bloodshed occurs over a backdrop of barely explored lands full of mystic creatures and powerful deities. The continual exploration of this world and the gradual advancement of humanity within it serve as merely the first of challenges for the people living in a delicate world order just waiting to implode all around them.
