About Duchess Mew

About the Story

Second rate heroes for hire: Azom, a wizard who can't create magic, and Brune, a seasoned veteran who's a bit past his prime, are hired by the Duke of Toulouse to rescue his daughter from the sinister clutches of the evil wizard Melizo. Figuring it was just the right job for them, as a duchess could be considered by some to be a second-rate princess, the duo wasted no time in rescuing the fair maiden. Unfortunately, their fair maiden was now an adorable white feline. This is where the story begins.

The Setting

Our heroes dwell in mythic Europe in a land with a passing resemblance to France in the 13th century. It is ruled by rich nobles and worked by serfs and peasants. Magical things dwell in the forest, hiding from human eyes. Wizards dwell in their covenants, hidden from those in the church who flay them for their forbidden knowledge or that's how it used to be. The Great Order of Magi erupted into a civil war that threatened to engulf mortal and magi alike. Nobody won that war and today the surviving magi are truly rare indeed.
