River Stories

When you regret something, float it down the river.
When you miss something, float it down the river.
These days, the river's alive with candlelight.

In the inner territories, the law of KING is absolute. However, in the far provinces,
Like out along the Blue River, the rule of KING is too thin and sparse.
Here, the law is interpreted by the clans that stake their claim on each dominion.

They protect the people of their demesne and enforce the law.
In return, they get a certain skim of collected taxes.

However, whereas the rule of KING is absolute, the right of a clan to rule a territory can be challenged…
Both from within, and without.

These are the stories of a little clan on the river,
and a little territory on the river.
