A Conference of Crowns
King Erastmus of Lothar has been gravely injured under suspicious circumstances. The leaders of the most powerful ruling families have assembled in the capital city of the Kingdom, Lotharia, to decide who will rule the kingdom next since the King has no apparent heir to the throne. With the King incapacitated and no new monarch decided, the heads of the ruling families form the Ruling Council of Lothar.
The Ruling Council of Lothar will have to handle international and domestic disputes, overcome infighting and allegiances, and select a new ruler for the Kingdom of Lothar.
Every decision, whether by the members of the council individually or by official council decree, will influence the course of this committee. Council members will also handle issues of resource allocation, strategic deployment of kingdom and individual forces, possible magical interference, and most importantly– the other council members’ own aspirations for the crown.
