''A century ago, a great king united the lands together, under the Glorious Kingdom. His will was great, his wisdom greater. The Kingdom seemed like it could last forever. And let it be known, his heirs did whatever it took to make sure that passed. As the century rolled on, wisdom and enlightenment became ignorance and oppression, and woe to us all, the Kingdom seemed like it could last forever.''

''But then the Hero arose. Taking allies where they could, they laid waste to the Kingdom's forces, reached the very capital, and brought the Kingdom down. Noone in that final battle survived that day, not the hero, nor their allies, nor the King and his court. Even the castle itself was torn asunder, how we do not know.''

''And now, those who have survived want answers. Conflicting legends abound, stories are whispered here and there, changing as they do. We, the Bards, now have the burdensome job of picking through the fragments to sing the True Song of what happened. A Bardmeet has been called, and Bards from around the land arrive to bring what knowledge they have of the Hero's quest. It is hoped that enough fragments of knowledge from enough Bards will allow us to piece together this Hero's Journey, and the Aftermath we find ourself in.''

* '''Epic Poetry/Unbound''' - In a little mix-up of the usual standard, each entry is to include verse and prose. The Verse can be as long or as short as the Bard wishes, and in any poetic form they wish (yes, even Free Verse), and the Bard may add further elaboration to the Verse with prose. Standard referencing and linking still applies!
