One of the most fascinating stories in Hârnic canon is the looming succession crisis to the throne of the Kingdom of Kaldor. The published material is intentionally vague on how the crisis may turn out, leaving it open to interpretation by individual game masters as is proper. This article describes how one person intends the crisis to begin and looks at the first few months of possible events.
The material in this article is based largely on information in Edward Barach’s analysis of the succession crisis in Thonahexus #9 (qv). The author has made extensive use of Jonathan Nicholas’ Great Clans of Kaldor (qv) and Kerry Mould’s Lady of Paladins (qv) article. Like those articles, he also relied heavily on the Kaldor articles from Columbia Games Inc and original writings by N. Robin Crossby, along with a selection of material from a multitude of other canon and fanon articles.
