The Lanvernite Succession
Nathan, king of Leftwich, commissioned the Whitesmiths to create the Amulet of Kings to help him in his struggle against Lord Waverly of Buckminster. His plan went horribly awry when the Whitesmiths doubled their price before they would reveal the amulet’s command word. Nathan refused to pay, and the Whitesmiths betrayed the amulet’s existence to Waverly. Waverly invaded Leftwich, routing Nathan’s armies. As Waverly’s forces converged on Southstead, Nathan sold the amulet at the docks to an unknown buyer. Soon after, Nathan was captured, imprisoned, and executed, and Waverly became king of Leftwich.
