King Byron the Blessed is the ‘ruler’ of the shattered Kingdom of Erun, after sending the two young Princes (his nephews) down the infamous Dungeon of Doom never to be heard of again. Many of his subjects, including several powerful magnates of the land consider this to be blatant murder of his younger brother’s heirs who he was bound by law to protect. Byron disputes this, saying he is truly ‘Blessed’ by Voden who has finally chosen him to rule the kingdom after previously being passed over in favour of his younger brother Opus the Pious. It is a difference in opinion that sees the land on the brink of yet another Civil War.
From the upcoming History of the Kingdom of Erun.
You’ll be seeing good King Byron first in “Ye Little Book of HeroQuest Heroes”, since he was originally commissioned for that book, but I liked him so much I’ll be re using him in the Kingdom of Erun book I have planned for Albion Adventures.
The artist Jonny Gray does some truly amazing stuff and I can guarantee you’ll be seeing more of his work in future D101 publications.
