The Council is a tale of the late XVIII century intrigue, conspiracies, and behind-the-scenes political manipulation. Most of the characters are based on real figures of the day, and it frequently references actual historical events. What it does with them, is a completely different story, though...
NO SPOILERS Real history lessons are fine, however.
The Council is a game of numerous variables, where dialogue choices, discovered clues, and your character's development can lead to key plot crises resolving in many ways.
The Council is a product lacking a certain level of polish. It starts off fairly smoothly, but gradually deteriorates as you move forward through the episodes.
