The game takes place in Karem, a vast Empire embodied by the Crooked Spire in its heart, from whence the
Empress Jacantha rules with her consort Alyx by her side. The Empress has ruled Karem for nearly thirty
years in conjunction with three groups:
● key decision-makers from the most powerful guilds: Shipwrights, Glassblowers and Mine Workers.
● maintaining her favorites amongst the courtiers, the Glittering Throng.
● keeping fierce neighbors at bay through the might of Karem’s fiercest military, the Blackguard.
