The King's Dilemma is an interactive narrative experience with legacy elements, featuring several branching storylines leading to many possible finales with an evolving deck of event cards at its core. Players represent the various Houses leading the government of the Kingdom of Ankist. You will draw one card from the Dilemma deck each round and expereicne the game story as it unfolds. Each card will pose a problem that the Council will have to resolve on the King's behalf. As members of the King's inner circle, your decisions will determine how the story proceeds and the fate of the kingdom.
Each even only happens once: you will discuss and bargain with the other players and finally you will have to make a choice, determining the outcome, progressing the game story, and possibly unlocking more events. You will have to keep the kingdom going, while also trying to advantage your own House; this power struggle may lead the kingdom into war, famine, or riot, or it could generate wealth and well-being. The thing is, each decision has consequences... Will you act for the greater good, or think only of yourself?
