The kingdom of Valnuvia is a small place. The tiny kingdom has but one city, Athos, and one castle known as, The Red Keep. The castle is named as such due to the king's love for the color red, which he uses to decorate the castle, city, and military uniforms with. There is another reason for the name...rumors say that the castle's prison is soaked red with the blood of it's prisoners. Very few people get locked up inside the castle itself, and those who do are never heard from again. Despite the kingdoms small size and a few unnerving rumors, the people are happy. Valnuvia's lands are rich with resources and food. The land has been a bit of a secret until recent years, unmarked on any maps due to it's secluded location.
More and more people are learning of the kingdom and traveling to it. They travel to it in hopes of trade and perhaps a new home. The citizens of Athos welcome the new popularity of their kingdom and enjoy the riches that come with it. Though not all of Athos is prosperous. The slums are a terrible place; filled with the unwanted, the hungry, the poor, and the criminals of the city. This is where you live and this is where your story begins. All is fair in the life of a thief, so what kind of thief will you be?
