The KING is DEAD. Rumored a suicide, and without a clear successor, The HEART family is on the verge of total ruin. To rally faith among her subjects and fear in her political rivals, the QUEEN of HEARTS encamps two thousand battle-hardened troops just outside the small village of LITTLE BLIND, on the cusp of SPADE territory.
While the royal court debates succession, the Captain of the Heart Navy, the fearless PRINCE OF HEARTS, returns from his campaign against the dreaded CRAZY EIGHT pirate gang. Refusing to believe the rumors, LA HIRE vows vengeance on his father's killers, whoever they may be. The King is dead. Long live the King.
