Between the time when the oceans drank Atlantis, and the rise of the sons of Aryas, there was an age undreamed of. And unto this, Tyson, destined to wear the jeweled crown of Aquilonia upon a troubled brow. It is I, his chronicler, who alone can tell thee of his saga... Let me tell you of the days of high adventure!

So, did Tyson return the wayward daughter of King Osric to her home. And having no further concern, he and his companions sought adventure in the West. Many wars and feuds did Tyson fight. Honor and fear were heaped upon his name and, in time, he became a king by his own hand... And this story shall also be told.
