Shelving of Fable: Siege of Samarkand and Related Media[edit | edit source]

I know I have shown very little activity on this forum, and as such Siege of Samarkand has pretty much remained in the shadows, but recently I have found out some information about the release of a Fable companion novel. Thus, I have decided to shelve Siege of Samarkand indefinitely. The release of Fable: Edge of the World has an uncanny resemblance to the overall story line of Siege of Samarkand, and so I feel I cannot continue with it for belief I could be charged with plagiarism. Sorry for the inconvieniance, and hopefully, the characters I created for this world may return in another fan fiction I am currently working on.

Story[edit | edit source]

Albion has seen seven years of prosperity by the hands of a reasonable King. In an understanding to unite their lands, the King was betrothed to Kalin's niece, of whom they bore a single son. But people believe the union has weakened their king, and their country, for the Hero of Brightwall is growing less and less studious with his regal duties, and thus is spending an increasing amount of time abroard in Aurora.

Whilst Albion lives on obliviously, a plague ravages the eastern lands of Samarkand. It has taken the young lives of many people, leaving their skin festering in boils, and to die bleeding from their eyes, ears and mouths. A darkness has their grip on one of Albion's biggest manufacturers of gunpowder. It was Logan's promise to aid them after the plight of the Crawler, but like many he gave, he did not uphold it. Now the Emperor of the land is dead, murdered in his sleep, and members of his Imperial Guard have absconded north to the Old Kingdom, adamant in the end of Albion's monarchy, hoping to end the corruption that's infested their land and livelihoods.

What happens next is nothing short of a war between factions. The distrust that slowly grows towards the Hero King was always a spark that needed kindling, and the cold-blooded Marshall Da Zhong is the catalyst they needed. It is only a matter of time to find the next triumvirate, and to save Albion not only from a new threat, and a plague that has a growing death rate. The corruption of one land, may be the end of the Monarch.
