“The world is a dangerous place to live, not because of the people who are evil but because of the people who don’t do anything about it.” – Albert Einstein.

In a far off land two kingdoms are on the brink of war fighting over the rights to shared farmland. During the ensuing chaos a group of religious cultists following their own agenda take advantage of the situation and take hostage a princess imprisoning her on the island of Effluo. With the war inevitable each kingdom is more concerned with preparing their armies than the rescue of the Princess and as each day passes she is one step closer to being sacrificed to a mythical beast.

While the two kingdoms continue with their squabble a new hero begins to rise from the anarchy with the rescue of the Princess being the first priority in a new order of peace.

Vern’s Tale is the first part in the Effluo Insula series chronicling the strange and mystical events that have taken place upon the mysterious island.
