Charleston, 1731. Hub of civilization. Home to the religiously free. Hive of plantations and slaves. Your home.

You’re William Broughton, which doesn’t mean much, except your younger brother is a local star; they say even the slaves love him. He’s fixing to be the next governor, and to your distress, nothing stops him.

Today was a day like another until…
“The governor’s dead!” The cry comes from outside. “Murdered! They say it’s the Black Thumb.”
The black thumb? Here? You must protect your brother!
