Game and Story Use

  • This is merely the latest incarnation of the council of Great Powers of earlier years - such conferences of leading nations are easily reproduced in almost any setting, whether a group of kings who meet for an annual festival or a formal summit of multi-planetary polities.
    • The real action is likely to come from what happens around the summit - that many notables in one place is a tempting target, but equally there is liable to be all sorts of intriguing going on between retinues and what have you … and even the catering and entertainment is liable to be a big deal.
