Doltlord the slave owner was a very greedy man and he was always searching for gold although.
Because of that he put heavy taxes on every slave and worker in his little town.
Time passed by and a serious drought went on to one side of the city which made a crushing effect on the financial state of the people on that side of the town, so they decided that they wont pay taxes because if they did they would of died out of hunger. Because they didnt have enough money to buy food or grow apples that they could sell for money.
Doltlord was furious because he didnt recieve the golden coins that he usually gets.
Upon hearing what happened he decided to burn the area of the people that didnt pay him money,he succeded in doing so and many people died from the oil that was put on their houses.
When the slaves of the other side heard about what happened they decided to revolt along with the 3 local knights, they relocated to a new mountainous area from where they planned to attack and end Doltlords madness. Knowing that Doltlord would send bandits to kill them off the slaves put up oil in passages of their new found area with which they could burn the surrounding bandits and kill the greedy lord.
