King's Crest within the Nexus

King's Crest is a realm of the Nexus ruled by the Lady of Thorns.[1] It is a fairy tale/storybook-themed land of tournaments, knights, squires, lords, ladies, and maidens. There are no peasants in King's Crest - everyone is very wealthy, and they have the finest pageantry and dresses.[2]

Writhing tendrils creep across the grounds at night, and a number of servants have disappeared while walking its twisting paths. Queen Nightshade claims to be unaware of these incidents, but some are beginning to suspect she has gone mad.[4]
