Once upon a time there was a king.
Or actually, there was a kingdom with an absent king. Its king was on an involuntary quest to Deeper Existence. And while the king was fighting many battles the sun didn’t rise in his kingdom, leaving it in darkness.
But after four long years, when the king returned, he brought with him many treasures.
And the sun started to shine again.
