1811 - Present
The Napoleonic war is raging and within the Winnoc Valley it suddenly moves closer to home, when the old barracks are once again taken into use by the British army. A regiment moves into Ravencarr - a bustling town with a growing middle class. As more and more young men sign up to fight and leave their families behind, the war creepes over the lives of the residents like a cold shadow.
In Ravencarr trouble is slowly brewing. The valley had long retained remnants of the feudal society due to its remoteness. Here, the noblehouse of De Grace has ruled for centuries and now owns the majority of the land in the valley. The Earl and the rest of the De Grace family find themselves under threat! It is in part from the military presence as the military effort demands more and more resources and people while also pressuring the upper classes to actively contribute to the cause, but also from a another side - an enemy of which they are currently unaware.
The London Corresponding Society which was disbanded in 1799 still lives on in Ravencarr in the form of the Ravencarr Corresponding Society - a radical group of mainly middle class people who take their inspiration from the french revolutionaries and seek to dissolve the monarchy and nobility. They secretly hope for Napoleons victory as they believe he will bring republicanism and democracy to the United Kingdom. Thus the valley is currently split into three fraction: The RACS of the Ravencarr Corresponding Society, the Loyalists who support the nobility and the old way of life and the Military who seek to strengthen their own efforts at any cost. Which side will you choose?
