This is a game about a succession crisis in the Roman Empire. It fits on the front and back of a single page, and is about desperation, fear, ambition, and petty squabbling and maneuvering in a time when only unity can save the Empire. Though historical, no prior knowledge of Rome necessary!
Loosely inspired by Ben Lehman's Amidst Endless Quiet.
Diadem is the first game in an upcoming anthology of games called Antiquity, which will be a collection of three historical games focused on Rome. Diadem will remain free, while the other games will be exclusive to the book. In addition to the games themselves, the books will be full of historical information to add interesting context, as well as rules explanations and examples, to enrich your experience further.
Until then, I would really appreciate any donation you'd care to leave if you enjoyed the game!
