This game takes place in a fantasy rendition of Constantinople. You (the players) are a Noble House that has been graced with enough fortune to afford a place within some of the lesser Noble housing behind the city’s second wall. Beyond the third wall you can see the distant grandeur of the Hagia Sophia, the beauty of the greater noble houses, and somewhere beyond those walls and spires lies the Great Imperial Palace! Your family is not the only ambitious noble house. Your rivals and political enemies are also in the city and work tirelessly to thwart your political ambitions, take your lands, steal your wealth, and see you driven from the city.
How you go about climbing the social ladder is up to you.
