I'm playing a hood that is very loosely based off of greek gods, which has 3 major territories: Erebus, Atlantis, Olympus. Each one is essentially a monarchy right now.
The future heir of Erebus (name escapes me.. Albert Grace?) unexpectedly married the future heiress of Atlantis (Charlotte Grace, long distant family members), causing a shakeup as the families seize up both territories and become a superpowers. It's causing a lot of drama with the residents of the territories. More importantly, it's making the leader of Olympus very anxious, although his attentions are divided because he's caring for his sick child (this is the baby that was born headless if you saw my post about weird glitches.) We'll see how this political drama plays out.
Howeverrrr, Charlotte Grace has not exactly been a loyal new wife (thanks ACR), and is pregnant with someone else's child.
