    Gunpowder Plots - Treason In Your Game?

    It's the 5th of November. Bonfires and fireworks are sweeping across the UK as they do every year on this date. So it seems appropriate to discuss plots of treason and conspiracy.

    Remember, remember, the 5th of November
    The Gunpowder Treason and plot;
    I see of no reason why Gunpowder Treason
    Should ever be forgot.

    Guy Fawkes, Guy Fawkes,
    'Twas his intent.
    To blow up the King and the Parliament.
    Three score barrels of powder below.
    Poor old England to overthrow.

    Guy Fawkes (13 April 1570 – 31 January 1606) was an English soldier and a member of a group of Roman Catholic conspirators who attempted to carry out the Gunpowder Plot to assassinate King James I of England (James VI of Scotland) and the members of both houses of the Parliament of England with a huge explosion, which was prevented by his arrest on 5 November 1605.

    What plots of intrigue and treason have cropped up in your games? Political subterfuge? Courtly dramas?
