Royals & Rebels is a low medieval fantasy board set in a fictional world. We have two primary kingdoms, one in the midst of a full-fledged rebellion and the other ruled by a mad king who claims to be a god and has fathered hundreds of bastards who are all fighting to rule after him.
We have just recently celebrated our one year anniversary! Fun events and OTYS!

She reciprocated the interest for a time, but instead fell in love with Malphas Storm, one of Balan's half-siblings. Seeking revenge, Balan became lover to Iseult's married sister, Lyona Valefar, fathering a child by her that he has only recently learned of, twenty-three years after the child's birth. He now finds himself promised to protect his son, Krispin, searching for ways he might prove useful in the constant struggle in the god-king's court...
The King's Shield, another bastard son of the king and a servant woman. He clawed his way up to the top to head his father's personal guard. He takes after his father in pure sadism and is highly ambitious in his quest for the throne. Silas is utterly ruthless in his dealings with his siblings and a strong contender for the throne.
When everyone is looking to take, you must be able to give... a sword to the gut. Despite discouragement from learning how, Nimue is better with a sword than most would be willing to test themselves against. She stands with her brother to protect her family against a court of wolves and snakes. It's complicated by a nephew's illegitimate lineage that could have that court knocking down the door...
