Most historians agree that the plague known as the Black Death originated in China in the 14th century, and then spread throughout the rest of the world. As millions died from this plague, fear ruled the hearts of men. This set the stage for some of mankind's worst traits to emerge. Perhaps the often heinous nature of man was best exemplified by the conduct of the corrupt Yuan Dynasty, which bears substantial responsibility for the woe and misery of those times.
The storyline in this campaign is fictional, yet possible. Imagine, if you will, the people of a city being framed by a corrupt government for causing a devastating pandemic. The storyline will explore the impact and repercussions of this injustice, while set within the framework of actual historic events from 14th century China. As the leader of these persecuted survivors, you must summon the indomitable spirit of mankind to inspire and protect them. Do you have what it takes to raise them up from hated outcasts to respected citizens?
A player will interact with 9 cities (7 historically-accurate). Resources, commodities, and available structures follow the Emperor model for the Steel Age. This campaign features a new custom map of "enormous"size.
