A fantasy city-building game with a timescale of centuries.
“Pontebrevis was settled in the first century after the devastation of the Overwar, when monsters still roamed the wild and the magical fallout wracked the land with the Wyrd & the Wyld. The first settlers included several heroes of the war, who had battled to little avail in order to save the communities mankind had built under the aegis of the titans. It was these veterans who tamed the wilderness and found the resources that the other townsfolk used to make the settlement grow and thrive…”
Each player takes the role of a different faction of Pontebrevis: together you will steer the destiny of the settlement through the ages, watching your power wax and wane with the changing times. Each scene focuses on a different crisis point in the settlement’s long history: fire, plague, famine, war, revolution and more.
Negotiate with the other factions to advance your own agenda, but beware of giving too much away, for today’s allies will be tomorrow’s enemies.
Think of a mixture of A Game of Thrones, The West Wing and Deadwood, following the fortunes of families and institutions rather than individuals.
