The King is getting old and needs to name a successor to the throne. He?s narrowed his choice down to five candidates, five leading figures in the Kingdom.
You?re not one of them.
As one of the lesser figures in the royal court, your goal is to become the power behind the throne. You?ll engage in palace intrigues, taking credit for things you didn?t do and avoiding blame for things you probably did do, manipulating the opinions of your betters. Your ultimate goal: ensure that whoever the King finally selects as his successor likes you better than any of the other players.
