There are several factions vying for the throne:
General Cardon Mar is the commander of the Army, and was a childhood friend of Vargos III. He is considered an obvious choice to be ruler. Arden Brenware, Viper Lord, leads the Order of Viper. The Viper Knights are renowned swordsmen and provide for order in the land. Arden has both martial force and political clout to make a try for the throne. Then there is Grenious Duramen, the Lord Chamberlain. He has a small but influential coterie of nobles who would like to see him in power. There are several others with their own angle at taking the crown. Will you join one of the factions, or will you have dreams of ruling your own Empire. The choices will be many, the consequences severe, but the rewards could be priceless. What path will you choose?
