Kingdom of Pavilion
"Even though Franklin City is in New Jersey, and not too far from the major traffic corridors, itís blessed to be situated with a comforting bit of wilderness around its edges AND at its heart.
New Deal Park is much beloved by the citizens, who fish and hike and picnic beneath ancient trees. However, there is one corner of the woods that they never seem to visit: the area around the Water Tower and Pavilion Seven. Hikers who head that way always find themselves drawn down a different path, and maintenance crews check its trash cans off their lists without ever emptying a single bin. Strange enchantments are at work, keeping the Big Folk away from the Kingdom of Pavilion, as itís known to the mice who live there.
They live in peace for the most part, under the watchful eye of their King, Acorus Calamus and the doughty knights of the Royal Court. But, it wasnít always so peaceful."
This is the convention description from the first official Kingdom of Pavilion adventure, a FAST setting by Steve Bruns, who first created this adventure for his own children, and then developed it as one of the FAST crew's eclectic array of convention adventures. The first appearance by a mouse-knight was Sir Richard Whitewhisker, who was then just an incidental character, one of a group of "Saturday-morning cartoon characters" who went around Franklin City solving mysteries. But, where did this mouse-knight come from? Why did the mice have a medieval kingdom in the heart of a city? Just what was it that made the park so special? Investigating the background of this character proved irresistible, and so it spawned a regularly-appearing series of adventures at Egyptian Campaign, DieCon, Archon and Anime St. Louis. A Sir Richard Whitewhisker novel is also slated to appear before the end of 2012, mouse-gods willing.
