17th Century Adventure
Welcome to the Age of the Baroque. It is a time when daring highwaymen ply the coach-roads, musketeers protect the king, and buccaneers cross swords on the high-seas. While the game assumes a 17th century setting, there is also advice to play it in any age from that of Elizabeth to Bonaparte, or even to make a completely fictional setting.
It is a dangerous and cruel world, but fortunately there are men and women who laugh in the face of danger and fight injustice. They swing into action on chandeliers, and meet their foes with flashing steel and a sharp tongue. The action in Honor + Intrigue should be as high-flying as any swashbuckling movie. Yes, you can swing from a tapestry, crash through the window, lunge at your enemy, and parry his attack all in a single turn!
Among the tangled webs of intrigue, friends can become bitter rivals, enemies can become allies, and lovers can betray you to your death. Rival nobles who smile cordially at one another at court plot against one another in secret, and often, heroes are caught in the middle.
