And some background story:
Your name is Lord Hailing. You are last heir to the Hailing family, once a powerful political force in the capital city.
When you were a child your family was sent to serve as diplomats on the North frontier, to keep the barbarians in check. But really this was a political move by a temporary ruler who sought to consolidate his power after the death of a well-loved emperor. He seized the thrown for his own daughter, whom he had conceived with one of the emperor's cousins, and rid the city of his most powerful adversaries. by sending them to distant battlefronts.
You parents died in the barbarian wars, but you survived and continued to serve until at long last the battle was won, and the barbarians were assimilated into the empire.
An urgent letter from an old friend, lord Bigtoes has brought you back to the capital, to live once more in your family's estate.
An old secret has come to light. Lord Bigtoes discovered that you are in fact a bastard child of your mother with the former Emperor, and rightful heir to the throne. It's a secret that could get you killed, unless it is revealed to the people at just the right time.
The current queen, Kionavaar, is the child of the former Emperor's cousin, but only known heir to the bloodline. Your claim is much stronger, but anyone with an interest in keeping the queen in power would kill you if they found out.
A claim to the throne is nothing without the power and influence to back it up. Time is short, and there may already plots against you. You must regain your family's position and power in the capital city before you can reveal your claim to the throne.
Engage in politics, develop your skills and build your reputation as a man of honor and a champion of the people.
Your opportunity will come on the night of the summer solstice, 30 days from now. Every ruler is anointed anew at the summer solstice, receiving the blessing of the Gods from the High Priestess. It is a time for other claims to be heard. You have until then to put yourself in a position to take the throne, or in a position to escape the city when the queen's men come looking for your head...
