NARRATIVE EVENTS

May You Live in Interesting Times!

Leading an Empire from a nomadic tribe to a continent-spanning nation is a complicated business at the best of times, but sometimes unforeseen events can add an extra layer of complexity. Reflecting your Empire's specific circumstances, Narrative Events are colorful happenings that require your direct intervention. Opportunity or crisis? That's for you to decide.
