It's been generations since the Sacred King last poured out his blood to heal the planet Brittania. In the interim, the usurping "Common" government has driven the Old Ways to ground with its pseuo-science. The windsor line has been hunted to extinction, records of the Old Faith and Sacred King, destroyed, all religious practices forbidden and the people are starving physically and spiritually.
As the Sacred King and his Knight Protector awaken in this dismal world, they quickly discover that the Gods have been very creative in preserving the bloodline, history and rites of the Sacred King. They even left a road map for them, but at least one copy has fallen into the wrong hands. Luckily for Geoffrey Spencer Robinson, Phillip MacGregor and the people of Brittania, the old saying holds true: man plans while the Gods laugh.
