From the introduction:
In Charlatan you take the role of a momentous liar. You will do battle for your honour, and that of you beloved, all the while perpetuating your own myth and fighting off competing suitors and jealous husbands. Hard work, but fortunately, there are plenty of courts in Europe (and beyond) craving your glamour, and every court - whether win or loose - is fuel for your fame (or infamy). Charlatan can be quite light-hearted - pursuits of love, wonderful inventions, mistaken identities etc. But it can also be a dark story of madness, old hatreds, crazy mysticism and so on.
