Argent the Consortium 2nd Edition

Argent is the premiere university of magic, science, and technology in the World of Indines. As a high-ranking staff member in the university, you’ve been pursuing your research, leading your department, and searching for ways to expand your influence. When the university chancellor announces his resignation from the university’s highest office, a consortium of voters assembles to decide who will be the next Chancellor of Argent—the most influential mage in the entire world. This is your chance to seize the power and prestige you’ve been longing for.

 

The membership of the Consortium is a secret, and when the game begins, you have no idea what criteria they will use in their election of the new chancellor. Over the course of 5 rounds of play, you must leverage your students, your spells, and your resources to discover who the members of the Consortium are and what they are looking for in the election, all the while simultaneously building up your power and trying to fulfill these wishes better than your rivals. Everything comes down to the final vote at the end, when the Consortium is revealed to all and the votes are cast to determine a winner!
