A highly-interactive game where players must balance self-interest, reputation, intrigue, & overt aggression, all while nominally performing their noble duties as protectors of the realm.
The king is dead, and––with his heir still too young to assume power––the nobles that make up the royal council are each vying for power. One player is selected as Regent, to protect the child, and keep order in the kingdom. The other players are awarded offices as dictated by the Regent, with each office overseeing one aspect of the government: treasury, defense, parliament, infrastructure, military, commerce, or spycraft. Using the powers afforded to them by their titles of office, players must strike deals and work together, paying favor for favor, in their veiled attempts to secure the loyalty of the people and seize the throne –– but all, of course, for the good of the realm...
