dictator de ludum rabidus

Right, I’ve just been accused of being an arrogant tyrant. Again.
So I’ll play Despot, the game for Ambitious Dictators.

The scene: I believe I lord it over a half-ruined country, which my family — from a minority religious sect — has milked for two generations, against the wishes of the majority — from a rival religious sect.

Both religious sects, mine and the evil devil-worshipping one of the rebels, have been killing each other consistently for the past 12 centuries.
