And if you do not keep it, then make sure someone will inherit it from you - build your dynasty and role-play your character.
Be the Ruler: A Game of Britannia is an advanced historical game in an intuitive setting - be a real king and rule the real kingdom. Make decisions straight from your medieval throne. Remember that your decisions have consequences both for the state and for your dynasty - your choices matters. Make sure that they are well thought out, although there will not always be time for that.
Be the Ruler is a mix of strategy and RPG with simple, card interface.
Show that the only one kingdom can be in England!
In Be the Ruler, every king you play, and his family, acquire personal attributes (traits if you like), depending on genes or decisions. Our goal as creators is to make the gameplay a bit different with every successive character of your dynasty.
The attributes can be genetic or acquired.
The genetic ones are, for example, Genius, Attractive, Ugly, and Giant.
Other attributes can be acquired during the character’s reign, as the results of your decisions.
The acquired attributes are, for example, Possessed, Brilliant Strategist, Fat, and Lustful.
The attributes affect primarily the selection of events presented by game, and decisions to choose from. For example, the Lustful attribute allows for more romances, and Giant - for gathering a larger army. And if you get Possessed, well, it will make the gameplay really crazy.
You can influence the traits inherited by your character’s children through choosing a wife with the desired attributes. And, of course, you can try different gameplay strategies to acquire different attributes during each king’s reign.
