Description:

For as long as anyone can remember, Chalion and Roknar have fought. So when the Queen of the neutral Island of Arin invited delegations from both states to negotiate a peace treaty, it seemed like an unmissable chance to end the bloodshed, at least for a while.

But all is not well in Arin. The royal family have been dying fast, amidst rumours of a curse. Now, only young Queen Ellen remains. Forced to consider an heir outside her own family, she has offered to make someone from Chalion or Roknar her heir … if she believes they will honour the treaty and Arin’s neutrality.

With such a prize at stake, the rival factions have been painfully polite. But decades of war leave their scars, and the delegates bear many grudges and secrets, some of which threaten to destroy the negotiations entirely. Particularly after the Roknari Prince’s sudden death, and the scandalous events of his funeral this morning.

An angsty, political fantasy game set in the world of Lois McMaster Bujold’s Five Gods books
