In this game players take on the roles of the various factions trying to steer the course of human achievement. Each faction has an ultimate goal it wants to see humanity achieve, and each faction is directly opposed by another. Through a little cooperation and maybe more than a bit of backstabbing each player will try to drive humanity towards embracing their particular agenda.
This game uses many elements of standard board games merged with narrative elements of standard role-playing to present a fairly unusual "storytelling" system. The game document includes some (poorly-formatted) print-and-play components.
