Oliver Freddy Motorsen:
I must start with a birds eye view of everything and some background information to create a context for my story, complete with an over the top title to make it sound epic or something. Alright, here we go!Prologue 0.0: The United Kingdom of Simbria.
The United Kingdom of Simbria, commonly known as Simbria, is a sovereign state comprising of six countries on the greater island of Simbria located in the Westphalian Sea on the northern hemisphere of the Simtopian Planet. It is a very big island, almost the size of a continent and thus covers many climate zones ranging from maritime subtropical on its southern tip to maritime subarctic on its very northenmost edge.
On the southwestern part of this large island state lies the mountaineous country of Frydain Pawr. Most of the population of this country is centered around it's capital Wad Nahadau, but this is not were our story plays out.Prologue 0.1: H.K.H. Høigaffel.
The small town of Solskinnsdalen, also known as Sunset Valley, is a small and fairly isolated town on the southwestern edge of the great island of Simbria, in a country called Frydain Pawr. A long time ago, there lived a man called H.K.H. Høigaffel. Already while he was alive, he rose to legendary status as the most impressive chess player the Sim World had ever witnessed. In the year of 1783 sim time, he founded what is known as Solskinnsdalen Schak-klub (Solskinnsdalen Chess Club). It was here he would spend the majority of his days, challenging people to a game of chess, or writing on his best selling books about the magic, mysteries and strategies (as well as joys) of chess. From the money he made on his books, teaching chess and winning tournaments all over Frydain Pawr, he erected a tower to be his home on what was then the outer edge of the town area. The tower quickly became somewhat of a landmark and tourist attraction, and were nicknamed "The Rook" by the locals, as it resembled the chess piece with the very same name.
Photo of the tower, "The Rook", as it looks in the year 2021, sim time.
As this was long before the invention of the camera, no pictures of H.K.H. Høigaffel exist, but there is a painting of him by an unknown painter (ca. 1795) hanging up in the lobby on the second floor of the chess club.

Portrait painting of H.K.H. Høigaffel by an unknown painter.
As far as legend has it, H.K.H. Høigaffel did not enjoy any romantic relations, preferring to stay by himself until old age when he eventually befriended and married a sim called Joika-Kari Bastiansen. Joika-Kari was an avid gardener for the last days of her life. Officially she died of old age, but evil tongues still gossip that she died while they were woohooing in bed.

H.K.H. Høigaffel lived for a long time still after her death, and it was then he became an avid painter. After his death, his tower was left abandoned for years and almost fell into ruin, before the town council in 1873 declared that it should be restored to it's former glory and be opened to the public as a museum. At the same time a memorial stone was placed by the entrance of the chess club. It is rumored that if you stay at the chess club late at night, you may catch a glimpse of H.K.H. Høigaffel's ghost still roaming the corridors, or maybe even challenging you to a game of ghostly chess.
