The consequences for your actions are severe and ever-lasting, so be sure to think hard before doing something that might affect you negatively, as you can't undo your decisions. Meet an exceptional cast of characters that all have their own secrets, and trust no one while trying to uncover the truth and find out what happened to your mother.
The Council has a wide variety of historically important figures like Napoleon Bonaparte and George Washington that you're going to meet on a private island. The obscure Lord Mortimer invited everyone to this place, but there's something wrong with this place as your own mother disappeared right here. Use the unique Social Influence system in order to extract as much information as possible when talking with these interesting characters. Use knowledge of a character's psychological vulnerabilities and immunities in order to achieve your goals. Even if you aren't prepared to engage in a conversation with a character, it doesn't mean the end of the world, just a persistent physical disfigurement or mental trait that will make your future adventures harder.
The Council lets you develop various skills like diplomacy, occultism, detective work, and so on. Explore the environments for clues and information that can be used to your advantage, outmaneuver the characters in verbal debates, and find out where your mother is in this highly engaging narratively-driven adventure!
