In a magically altered 17th century, the Italian lands that survived the Witchplague are now called Ausonia, and powerful houses of nobles rule over them.
Each player is the leader of one of these houses and with the help of supporters and magical gemstones tries to become the next ruler of the city-states.
Each player starts with the basic cards of their house, which they can add to throughout the game. In addition to acquiring newer, stronger cards, players will also need to gather gemstones to activate them. â€¦
