Description

The vast road network of Honce, completed a decade before, had brought great optimism to the people of the land. For the first time, the many individual kingdoms, the holdings of Honce, would be brought closer together, perhaps even united. But for the last few years, those promises had become a nightmare to the folk, as two powerful lairds fought for supremacy over a hoped-for united kingdom. Bransen Garibond, the Highwayman, held little real interest in that fight. To him the warring lairds were two sides of the same coin. Whichever side won, the outcome for the people of Honce would be the same, Bransen believed. A journey north, however, taught Bransen that his views were simplistic at best, and that some things - like honour and true friendship - might truly matter. In "The Dame", Bransen's road becomes a quest for the truth of Honce and of himself, a quest to put right over wrong. This path is fraught with confusion and fraud, and a purposeful blurring of morality by those who would seek to use the Highwayman's extraordinary battle skills and popularity among the common folk for their own nefarious ends.
