From the publisher's website:
Viceroy is a deep strategy game for 1 to 4 players that can be played in less than an hour! By building their own pyramid of power, players will manage the various aspects of the fantasy empire: from science and magic to laws and military. Characters placed at lower levels of your pyramid do ordinary tasks and bring modest benefits. These characters are the people who form the base of your empire. To place a card to the next level of a pyramid, it needs to be supported by two cards of a previous level. Characters placed at higher levels of the pyramid cost more but usually give better rewards. This represents appointing characters to prestigious administrative positions or giving them more freedom to use their valuable skills. Each law and character card in Viceroy is unique. Viceroy is set in the same universe as Berserk and shares beautiful art with it. The game has already received fantastic feedback from players and reviewers.
