Sir Charles Wallaby was a noble who owned a large manor, engaged in feudalism with the king, and his knights and peasants had a manorial-ism with him. His peasants farmed wheat and vegetables to trade with nearby manors.
Sir Charles Wallaby went to his town's church, along with fellow nobles and peasants. Sometimes his peasants worked for free on the church's land, but that didn't bother Wallaby, because he was very comfortable and his trade business was well off. Some dared accuse the church of greed, but Wallaby tried to stay out of it.
I am very comfortable!
One day, Wallaby got a call from one of his servants. One of his knight's had died on the job, from the Plague! Suddenly, many of his peasants began dropping like flies from the Plague. To be honest, Wallaby was most concerned with the money he was losing from the loss of agriculture to trade.
Sir, one of the knights is dead! A knight has died from the Plague!
Soon, Wallaby had only a few peasants that farmed for him, and Wallaby wasn't making that much money anymore. Wallaby could no longer sell wheat or even wine.
With a suggestion from the church, Wallaby moved in with some fellow peasants.
What do you guys do for fun around here?
We go to church, and grow vegetables in little gardens to feed our families.
Wallaby realized that it wasn't fair for him to lay around in his large house while peasants worked hard to provide for their families. Wallaby decided to help buy food for the peasants with little money he had left, and to start farming.
