In a fictious world set in 1850, King of kings, John Frederick sits on the throne to the capital kingdom the capital to the most powerful empire of all time. King John has a reputation of being the most powerful man on the planet but his brutality, misogyny, racism and unprecedented politics has earned him a title in secrecy, as the Mad King.

Although being warned by the grandmaster, a thousand-year-old lady who served King John’s father and his father before him, as a trusted advisor; the extraction of mother nature and the depth of the earth has led to an unexpected long summer as well as shocking natural disasters such as floods and wild fires in the western kingdoms.

As a solution to the financial problems caused by the long summer, and to avoid rebellions in the realm, the King and his Chief Commander to the Royal Army, Lord Rothschild decide to create a common enemy and conquer the southern lands of the republic of the sun.
