- Balance the competing demands of the different regions of your Kingdom, each one of which has its own desires, difficulties, and ongoing plots.

Keep the balance
- Upon joining the game, the Nobles on your Council are sorted into different regions of the Kingdom. One moment these regions will be pitted against each other – the next, changing circumstances will turn them into uneasy allies.
- Based on your decisions and the votes of the Council, over the course of your reign some of these regions will become wealthy and prosperous, while others will descend into anarchy, or rebel against your rule.
- As the Monarch, it’s up to you to keep them in check.
- Foil the plots of treacherous Nobles as they pursue their own schemes to replace you with a puppet ruler of their own.
- Tax the regions of the Kingdom that get on your nerves and watch the gold (and salt) pile up!
- Watch your back – if your Nobles Defiance gets too high, they might just revolt against you in an epic and bloody civil war that will tear your Kingdom apart!
