Farson Windhoek was born an orphan and raised by a “college” of traveling bards known as The Forty Upon Fifty. Unjustly accused of being a band of thieves as well, The Forty Upon Fifty were wiped out in the westernmost province of Imperial Accadios by a lynch mob of peasants and clerics five years ago, leaving Farson Windhoek one of the few survivors from the massacre.
A man haunted by the past, he wanders out to the desolate East, covering up his bitterness and resentment with jokes, music and long drinking sessions. He’s looking for enough gold and treasure to start a life of leisure and luxury, and to forget the horrors of that fateful night in the West…And he will do anything to obtain them.
