George I: Traitor’s Wages
George Smith, owner of the Windsor Court hotel, is a charming and gregarious friend to all. He’s also utterly without conscience and schemes towards a singular end: toppling Augusto Vidal and seizing the princedom for his own.
An ambitious goal. But if George can play the prince and his rivals against one another, all he needs is the proper leverage… a secret that will send shockwaves through the city.

George II: The Prince’s Trial
News that Prince Vidal covered up another elder’s dirty crime has the city in uproar. It’d seem like George’s plans to topple the prince are going smoothly, given he’s behind the leak. There’s just one problem: Vidal suspects George is behind the leak. Worse, he has evidence linking George to other crimes.
Bowing to pressure, the prince convenes a trial to give the city some appearance of justice. But only that: an appearance. Anyone who can’t get the mob on their side and make it too inconvenient for the prince to execute them will suffer final death. George will need to employ every trick in his book if he’s to survive.
