The game still takes place between the years 1066 and 1452, but instead of being a feudal lord or king, you play as the head of a patrician family battling for control over the merchant republic. This becomes not only a battle of wits, but one of wealth: the patrician families are driven by money rather than bloodshed and a lot of the expansion’s additions are thematic as such. For example, one of the interesting new features in this expansion are the trade posts. Expanding your trade posts, as well as defending them, is vital to your success. They increase your income as well as have a variety of new buildings that can be used to increase its defense in case you come under siege.
