Renaissance Marriage: Honour, Piety, & Subterfuge - Description of game and rules
Written description and rules for "Renaissance Marriage: Honour, Piety, & Subterfuge" game.
The game is a simulation of the complex social world of pre-modern marriage negotiations and the acquisition and loss of honour connected with it. The goal is to work with whatever conditions you have inherited in your family to increase your honour and piety ratings through finding advantageous marriages for your children and through charitable works or patronage.
The family with the most combined honour, piety, and handicap points at the end of the game wins. The game is still in developmental stages so we may adjust the handicap points. We will also recognize those families which made particularly colourful contributions.
