Dirty, dangerous, pristine, and opulent. Welcome to West Marque.
Listen to an audio excerpt from All In by Richard Parkinson, read by Chip Michael
The Call has gone out, summoning the Fifth Wheel to the Holy City, Jonah’s Sword. There, they prepare to take their sacred oath as knights-of-the-realm. The Marshals, the Marshals’ Men and even the High Marshal himself, Ablechance Mainhouse, will attend.
The oath swearing occurs only once every twenty years and is often accompanied by change…and sometimes war.
The realm has enjoyed peace for nearly two decades under Mainhouse but the bitter taste of defeat still lingers in the mouths of his old rivals. Many would like to see the old man removed from the High Seat, including Genevieve Goodregard, the Lady of Seawall.
Genevieve desires to see her husband as High Marshal and herself as High Lady. She has worked hard to this end with the help of the scheming and powerful bishop, Michael.
For Genevieve, the Call is much more than the swearing of an ancient oath. It is a call to action. The chips are down, the important players are gathered, and it is time for her to play her hand. It is a time for her to go All In.
