Given its continental temperate climatography, the Principality of Penrod enjoys four robust seasons. The year begins with an icy winter, with loads of snow and the birth of early goat kids. Next is spring, when flowers bloom and the flax is planted. Then comes summer, when noble families visit their lodges on pristine alpine lakeshores and the common folk are busy mowing hay. At last is autumn when folks harvest peas, honey, grapes and acorns. Thus the world turns around the sun and the gods smile upon those who labour under her light.
But there are others who do not labour under the sun. They do not slaughter hogs in the winter, nor do they plant onions in the spring, shear sheep in the summer, nor take stock to market in the autumn. These people are noble-born, and thus free from a life of hard work and feudalism.
You are one of these nobles. You have a gaggle of noble-born cousins with whom you hang out. Your shared Grandmother is the Countess of your little county. And while you don't have to labour in a field, you have labours of another kind.
Roughly once each season, Grandmother gathers you in her parlour and bequeaths unto you a quest. You line up at the cupboard and grab your swords, spellbooks, and extremely fancy expensive leather walking boots, and head into the hinterlands on whatever dangerous adventure Grandmother sets you to.
