      The extermination of a city: London 1348-1350. The thronging capital of England was rife with hunger and poverty. Fleas on rats from China spread throughout Europe carrying bubonic plague, attacking rich and poor alike. London resembled a battlefield, with the population in a fight to the death with nature. Would anyone survive the final Great Fire to tell the story?

Fighting for survival, fighting to be the best in the game.
