Crisis Committee

Background Guide

Beauty and Harmony. Governed by the will of the Heavens. All that begins must end. The Reign of the Heavens is over!

The year is 1592. The heavenly kingdom of Joseon is at a crossroads. Peace is nothing more than an illusion. To the east the Samurai of Japan have united after years civil war and eye the fertile kingdom of Joseon like starving wolves.

You’ve ascended to the King’s State Council not because of your kindness and filial piety to the King, but because you clawed your way to the top to achieve your goals by any means necessary.

While your power grabs may have earned you a spot at the top, there are other councilors and officials competing for the King’s ears. Do you have the resolve to sacrifice own interests and ideals for the Kingdom or do you have what it takes to secure your own legacy during the chaos and forge a new mandate from the heavens?
