From a land far away the challenge was met. An obscure writer got working on an exposition that promised better things to come and soon had settings, themes, characters, plots and sub-plots weaving a tormented tapestry of rising action that revealed contests, collusions and cameraderie to rival them all - in both fact and fiction.
