Thank you miss Hawk, the peasant is named Joseph. A corrupted soul aidding the orcish king to get the staff first. In his mind the death of the king means thhat the land will be weakened. When the black king Vlame(Orcish king) attacks the country of Conqaz, Joseph wil be granted kingship and the love of Ranfral as his prize.

I love sending royalty out into the world!

I think the poisoning of the father line needs strengthening though.

What poison were the orcs using?

Where did they get it?

Stuff along that line.

Could develop into a good villian behind the scenes if set up well and ensure that it makes more sense why behing poisoned by orcs requires an epic quest. Might be a quest to find out what poison was used in the first place by capturing the person behind the orcs...etc.

Poison of their own make, kind of like our equivilent of aids threw a dagger, though it will do more than defeat the immunitary system.

How did this ever get such a high rating? I think it is vague, needs more detail and more background, and is generally just not gonna cut it.

2/5.

Maybe the poison used was of a mystical kind, that no healer could get rid off

Sounds like the plot of a Young Adult fantasy novel. It can be used, with a bit of work.
