King Tobery's Responsibilities in Action
Why don't us peasants get a chance to make us some money.

A Day for A Squire
I now pronounce you, a knight!
King Tobery grants one of his squires a fief. A fief is a piece of land. This squire is the best squire the kingdom has ever had.
The Kingdom is Under Siege
Oh no! The kingdom is under siege!
Peasants were born peasants and had no chance at making money and having a good life. Unlike serfs at least peasants didn't have to get permission to marry. The life of peasants and serfs were very difficult.
When a squire was pronounced a knight, there was a big ceremony. It was typically in the ballroom of the castle. Here the best squire of all is knighted.
When enemies put a kingdom under siege, they blocked all of the doorways so the people inside would starve. Sometimes it failed and they themselves died due to starvation. Here King Tobery spots and enemy soldier attempting to put the kingdom under siege.
Thankfully, King Tobery spotted the enemy in time so he could call his knights. If King Tobery hadn't spotted him that could have meant trouble for the whole kingdom. After they fought off a few more enemies the kingdom lived in peace.
