This adventure is an exploration of the three different types of political thought that were present through European history.

In the story, you're a prince/king who is heavily influenced by three characters, one of which prizes honor and valor in the spirit of Beowulf, the second who is practical and prizes the art of war above all else in the spirit of Machiavelli's The Prince, and the third (your father) is a more well-rounded king who thinks rulers should also value skills like rhetoric and drawing as argued in Castiglione's The Courtier.

The plot is that your town is threatened by a dragon and you must figure out how to best draw on the advice of your three assets to defeat it and save your town from certain destruction.

Good luck!
