200 years ago, a peaceful mining town called Silvercliff found a vein of emerald at the bottom of the caves, bigger amounts of them than ever before in the history of the Kingdom of Galekin. Huge wealth came to the town, quickly growing into a city.
One day a castaway prince found about the emerald veins and offered the city a great amount of ₲aleons, in exchange for the land and mine. The greedy squire’s gave all away for a quick fortune. Erishum became the richest man in Kingdom of Galekin and crowned himself to rule the area.
Now these days, the old families don’t live in riches anymore and the mines and city is completely run by the king, who hasn’t aged a bit. People say emeralds give healing powers, and the person with the most gems can live forever.
The city has a lot of problems despite all the precious ore they mine every day. The king spends it on building a huge army and attacking its neighbors. Also, they capture and make slaves out of testificates to work in the mines. The cruel king also taxes the people heavily but the citizens can’t do anything because of fear.
The city needs a change and a hero who can turn things around.. but who’ll it be?
