The Evilord and The Shiny Thing
The fourth age began when the Overlord became The Evilord. The outbreak of Dull that had caused havoc in The Third Age was discovered to be caused by the containment of The Shiny Thing. The Evilord had been keeping The Shiny Thing in a box. When confronted with this harsh reality he decided to become evil rather then let The Shiny Thing out. It is now up to the Game Citizens to out shine the Evilord and fight the dull.
