The year is 1492, Europe stands at a crossroads and Rome burns as a new Pope is being chosen, a
Pope that will change the course of history.
A new world beckons. A world of science, of fire and paper, paintings, gilded cities of republics,
mercenaries and tyrants.
The monarchs of Europe once shackled by reliance on their nobility now use banks to hire armies
that are under their control alone, making their power now absolute.
Against this tyranny the city state republics of the German and Swiss free cities array stubborn
bands of citizens, grim and merciless to stand against old and new alike.
The old world shall not die easily, the nobility is strong, like their steeds bred for hundreds of years
for one purpose, war. They walk as gods over the battlefield, striding over the skulls of their foes.
Mercenary captains grow fat sucking off the wealth of their employers and the plunder of the land,
cunning snakes, more adept at intrigue than arms.
Rodrigo Borgia now stands poised to take the Papal throne. If he succeeds in liberating the papacy
from the influence of the warlord families that control the ruined city of Rome, he and his allies will
have the power to choose in which direction the great wheels of progress churn, or even stop them.
Freedom or Tyranny, revolution or tradition, rationalism or fanaticism, it all hangs in the balance.
Yet however you wish to take up arms against fortune and make your mark upon this burning world,
you will do it through Force of Virtue!
