"The year is 342AE. With the Crusade, called by Primarch Benedict, coming to a close, you are returning to a world ruled less by survival and battle and more by intrigue and politics. Your father has died and you have become the head of your noble house. While you were away, however, tumultuous times have reached the continent of Alitheia. The status quo seems close to being broken and navigating your house through this era will be difficult."

Thus is the scenario set for a game that I call Intrigue. The idea of the game is one of Politics rather than one of War or Economics. Though Politics is the main thrust of the game, War and Economics do play a substantial factor in determining success or failure at various times throughout the game.

Though this is a strategy game it has numerous elements of roleplaying throughout it. If you have any questions, please email me and I will provide you with answers.
