Introduction

Landover was a genuine magic kingdom, complete with fairy folk and wizardry, just as the advertisement had promised. But after he purchased it for a million dollars, Ben Holiday discovered that there were a few details the ad had failed to mention. Such as the fact that the kingdom was falling into ruin. The barons refused to recognize a king and taxes hadn't been collected for years.

One member decorated a cake with a map of Landover. Another made "puppy chow" in honor of Abernathy. We had wine, of course. And punch dubbed "dragon juice". Someone brought "Willow's Woodland Snacks", which were veggies and dip. And then someone else made sandwiches using a recipe from a restaurant in the "Magic Kingdom" - DisneyWorld!

  "Great introduction to the Fantasy genre"by MomB96 (see profile) 09/25/10
