The Emperor Decrees
A downloadable game
“I shall remember: When Caesar says ‘Do this,’ it is performed.”
– William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar
The Emperor Decrees is a collaborative storytelling game. Featuring a GM or diceless oracle, it features a turn-based resolution system that lets each player describe the actions of an empire's agents as they carry out decrees from their emperor.
Of course, since the game is setting-agnostic, they could also be political operatives in a Soviet satellite, ruthless businesspeople in the employ of a multinational corporation, or members of any organization pursuing its goals.
The focus is two-fold. While playing, players will develop a world full of heroes and overcome a plethora of challenges, but they will also grow their agents and the empire to enable higher stakes and even greater action.
