The ‘True’ King of Thaeceil, Lord Regent Onsdka is losing popularity fast after his brutal dethroning of the previous King. He has commissioned a blood sport arena to fix the problem. Created by the ‘finest minds’ as a ‘gift’ to the Thaeceilian people: glamoured chambers and cog bound machinations create an almost endless supply and combination of deadly traps, puzzles and encounters that the audience may look upon with delight.
Those that take part have been royally invited, paragons of their ideal, people, society or enclave. The prize is an audience with the King, and granting one wish which is in his power. Some are using this to further their own but Lady Amana Iron hammer, leader of the Thaeceilian Royal resistance, is going to exploit it. She has called for aid from her old contacts champions of the realm, under the guise of their own cause are here to win and assassinate the King.
