It has been 100 years since the last time The Great Houses went to war, and we are in the waning days of The Empire. The Crown is no longer the controlling force that it once was. Today the lords of The Great Houses rule over themselves for the most part. King Josef Halcyon, last true heir to King Justin The Conqueror, is on his death bed. His nephew, the heir to the thrown, Charles II was murdered in streets of your capital city days ago. You have all been called to Grand Capital of the Halcyon Empire to assist in the investigation of the princes death, and keep the public’s eyes off the need of a new heir, and hopefully off the looming war.
