It is the 613th year of the Old Imperial Era.
After twelve long years of fighting, the Unified Kingdom of Tierra stands at last triumphant over the League of Antar. But victory comes with a price: battle-scarred and war-weary, the officers and men of the Royal Tierran Army return home to indifference, alienation, and a kingdom on the verge of bankruptcy.
War has strained Tierra to the breaking point. The poor starve under the crown’s heavy war taxes. The powerful grumble and conspire as the victorious king seeks to impose his will on a restive aristocracy. Distant powers bide their time, preparing to pick up the pieces after the Unified Kingdom’s seemingly inevitable collapse.
You are a veteran officer of the Royal Tierran Army, recently returned from the battlefield to find yourself heir to a noble title, a crumbling estate, and a seat in the Cortes, the Tierran parliament. Restore your lands to their former glory and gain the love of your people, or squeeze your tenants to fund your great ambitions. Enter politics in pursuit of power, wealth, or to pull Tierra back from the brink of ruin. Seek a marriage for love - or for money - or court destruction in the name of a doomed romance. As old certainties are tested and broken in the halls of power, the bold, the idealistic, and the desperate grapple for the soul of a doomed kingdom.
Will you find yourself crushed under their heels? Or will you take your place among them as one of the Lords of Infinity?

What I Want
Low Level Feedback:
If you find any scripting bugs, then please report them. If you think something might be a bug but aren’t sure, report it anyways. At this point, it’s probably safer to be sure. If you find any continuity errors (as in, the text saying something which is contradicted by any previous text, or anything from Sabres of Infinity or Guns of Infinity), report that here as well. If text appears disjointed or otherwise doesn’t flow properly, that’s likely either a missing text bug, which should be reported here, or a writing issue, which should be reported here.
High Level Feedback:
If you have any commentary regarding the way the story is progressing, how the setting is presented, or any feedback regarding tone or pacing, I’d like to hear it. I’d also like to hear your thoughts regarding the characters, factions, and groups within the story. If you have any concerns about the clarity or presentation of certain decision points, I’d like to hear about that too. I’d also like to hear any suggestions regarding balance, or any subplots or specific options which you think might be missing (within reason).
What I Don’t Want
Don’t worry about finding typos or the like unless they’re particularly egregious. Chances are, Lords of Infinity is going to get a copyeditor before release, and I’d rather not spend time fixing misplaced letters when I’d rather be writing new content.
