What is a Co-narrative, Player vs Player, period piece RPG?

Unlike traditional tabletop RPGs, Murders & Monarchs does not have a game master that is dictating the story. Each player gets to help create an epic story of romance, vengeance, betrayal and politics. While you are trying to win The Monarch's favor, the main goal is to tell a good story with your fellow players. Using the best possible stat every time is a sound strategy, but does it tell an exciting story? Your goal while playing Murder & Monarchs should be story first, winning second.

Where are the dice?!

Murders & Monarchs uses a brand new game system that is dice free. Instead, a standard deck of playing cards, with the jokers included, is used for each character. The deck is divided amongst a character's stats and used when a player attempts certain actions during the game. So leave those dice in your carriage!
