From Fantasy Flight's Website :
"The royal Advisors are constantly meddling with each other, creating fragile alliances that rise or crumble as situations evolve or their needs change. Choosing who to trust and who cannot be ignored is a vital skill for a successful governor."
This official scenario for "Kingsburg" creates a system of changing and mitigating alliances with the various Advisors in the game. Players score victory points when other players influence an Advisor that you are allied with.
