It is the year 1917 and the Bolshevik revolution is coming. As one of the most powerful political figures in the Russian soviet you and your friends are fellow faction leaders standing against the red tide. But stopping the revolt is easier said than done, comerade.
Build your power, contend with the ebb and flow of an uncertain and occasionally surly populace as you use resources like The Clergy, Railroads, and Subversive Artists to sway the people and even your rivals; or use your position to foster negotiations, using gifts, threats or outright attacks and even assassinations; while always keeping an eye on the ever growing rebellion.
Mother Russia cries out for a leader! Will it be you?
